Fresno Alumni has banquet Fresno Alumni had their banquet on June 9 at Ridgewood High School with 169 in attendance. A meal was served by the Fresno Methodist Church. Classes honored were classes of 1942, 1952 and 1962. Three scholarships were given from the Fresno Alumni Association. Those receiving them were Katherine Share, Seth Finton, and Elizabeth Layman. Harold and Peggy Hamilton received gifts for the couple who fell in love at Fresno High School and married 60 years. Larry and Violet Carpenter received a gift for traveling the farthest to attend the banquet.


“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count, but the life in your years.” – Abraham Lincoln. Dead or alive: which are you? You’re probably wondering why in the world I ask such a question. We often don’t think that people who are alive and well might be actually dead. What I mean is, there are people who are breathing, who are void of all emotion and have no zeal for life. It is a tragedy when somebody dies prematurely. The most common thing I hear people saying about the person is that he or she had so much life ahead of them. Their life has been snuffed out like a candle. Unfortunately, many of us who are living are doing that ourselves. For some people, life never seems to go their way. It is one disappointment after another. Instead of pushing forward, they give up on almost everything and just “lay down and die”. We cannot and should not expect life to be fair. I never met someone who had all the right breaks in life. For people who are “dead inside” everyone else is getting good breaks, everyone except for themselves. This isn’t a healthy perspective. It is a distortion of realty. Those people cannot see beyond their own problems. Seeing others as a success only makes them bitter, and they start focusing on all their problems in life. Every day is a neverending cycle of fear. It is a fate worse than dying. Life is not over until your physical death. For people who are dead inside, it is never too late to be resurrected. Every valley has a mountain just on the outskirts. In other words, every valley has a peak. It is not over yet. One man in American history embodies this more than anyone else. He lived during the 19th Century. He was barely educated, so he read constantly and eventually became a lawyer. He served one



Dead or Alive: Which are you?

Healthcare coalition discusses report The Coshocton Hospital Community Healthcare Coalition met June 21, to discuss the after action report of the third quarter coalition tabletop exercise, which was held in March. The March exercise involved a food poising scenario that caused a large influx of patients at Coshocton County Memorial Hospital. The report from the Southeast Ohio Community Healthcare Coalition showed that the local group had good communication among partners and agencies. “We always do that well,” said Kathy Reed, infection control preventionist at CCMH. “It’s never an issue with us.”

The report also states that locally there are several options for alternate care centers, strong Medical Reserve Corps and CERT programs, several options to identify volunteers and set up and manage the facility and an availability of supplies and resources to set up facilities. However, the local coalition was advised to look at staffing requirements, get more specific on where its medical direction will come from and solidify memorandums of understanding with facilities. Facilities selected for alternate care centers also need reevaluated. “Some really aren’t available now or just aren’t good decisions,” Reed said. Members of the coalition talked about possibly using the Salvation Army, National Guard Readiness Center or some of the larger area churches such as the Coshocton Christian Tabernacle or Liberty Worship Center as alternate care centers. “Steve (Miller) and I will tour some of these places and maybe approach management to set up some memorandums of understanding,” Reed said. “It’d be nice for them to be close to the hospital for equipment and personnel purposes.” Miller currently serves as the hospital’s safety and corporate compliance officer, but he will retire on Aug. 17 and Reed will take over. “I’ve enjoyed my association with all of you and appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to help us out at the hospital.” Miller and Reed invite a variety of people including representatives from nursing homes, Coshocton County Emergency Medical Services, Coshocton Fire Department, funeral homes, health departments, Coshocton County Emergency Management Agency and other agencies to attend the Coshocton Hospital Community Healthcare Coalition meetings.

Denae Williams likes plays, but being behind the scenes is where she really wants to be. “I like set design and costume design so these camps are perfect for me,” she said. “I’m having a lot of fun.” The 13-year-old took part in the Pomerene Center for the Arts summer art camp on set design, which was held June 18-22. The Pomerene Center for the Arts was working with the Coshocton Footlight Players to create sets for the summer children’s production of Disney’s “The Jungle Book Kids.” They also held a camp June 25-29, to work on costumes for the play. “They (the adults) start us on a project and then let us go after it,” Williams said. She worked on a palm tree that a person had to fit into with Chris Tyhurst.

July 2nd, 1972 George Young, a Coshocton artist who worked at Shaw Barton, had won the Bicentennial Medal Design contest depicting the state of Ohio. His artwork featured two pioneers, one with an axe and his foot on a log, and the other standing on a moon rock. Young said he was motivated to create the design because he always felt a close historical bond with the state of Ohio as his ancestors were among the first settlers. He received $5,000 in prize money which he intended to use buying products he needed to complete some fine arts projects. Young’s design would be part of a set commemorating the nation’s bicentennial issued by the Franklin Mint.

July 1st, 1962 A little 4-year-old girl in West Lafayette was alive and assured of a normal, healthy life thanks to the Coshocton Shrine Club. Every year, the Shriners had their annual Shrinabration at the fairgrounds with all proceeds going to the Aladdin Temple Shrine for crippled children where world-famous Dr. Judson Wilson treated crippled children free of charge. The money the Shriners raised went toward equipment such as braces and hospital care. During the Shrinabration, there were to be ballgames, a big midway, a Dixieland band, and a huge fireworks display. All proceeds would benefit the little girl in West Lafayette and many more like her.

Pictured is event organizer Holly Harrah, a graduate of the River View class of 1978. Harrah said, “We just wanted to help the community through a good cause and relive those high school memories.” The smooth acceleration of V-8 engines added to the mix, with restored Chevrolet Camaro’s, Pontiac GTO’s, Corvettes and Ford Mustangs cruising down Main Street just like the days of glory when the sound of Kiss, Led Zeppelin, Boston, ZZ Topp, Deep Purple and others spewed from 8 track systems and after market speakers. The canned food from the drive will go to Good Shepherd Ministries and New Bethel Ministries. Harrah said she hopes that the event becomes an annual get together. BEACON PHOTO BY MARK FORTUNE

While snow cones are made with crushed ice, Hawaiian shave ice is made by shaving the ice with a blade. Shave ice is smooth and softer than a traditional snow cone and a cream topping can change a texture and taste similar to homemade ice-cream.

GED graduates celebrate accomplishments



uates celebrate at the end of the 2011-2012 GED Graduation Ceremony, which was held June 21, at the Triple Locks Theater. BEACON PHOTO CLASSIFIED HOTLINE 622-4ADS



It’s never too late to achieve a goal. “I’m 75 and I figured it was time to get my GED,” said Barbara Brindley. Brindley was one of 34 people who can proudly say they are part of the 2011-2012 GED Class, which celebrated its graduation June 21, with a ceremony at the Triple Locks Theater. She started working on her GED in August 2011 and past the test on her first try in January. Brindley had nothing but words of praise for staff from Coshocton County Job and Family Services and Coshocton’s ABLE Program who helped her work on achieving her goal. “They are very kind,” she said. “They try to help as much as they can. We were more like family. If you need your GED just take the first step and ask for help.” Ellen Holmes, who volunteers with the ABLE Program, also was impressed with the closeness of those involved. “I love volunteering there,” she said. “Those who understand what they’re doing will help others that aren’t doing so well. They work back and forth just like kids in high school do.” Holmes was proud of all the graduates, especially Bonnie Ashcraft and Rebecca Means. “Bonnie just worked so hard to get her diploma and Rebecca and I got to be friends,” she said. Means, who was selected to be the student speaker, encouraged her fellow graduates to not

let obstacles stand in their way. “You will get knocked down and out, but you have to run through the storm, keep your head up and PINNING Barbara Brindley had her husband put on never give up,” she her National Adult Education Honor Society pin during

said. Honorary guest speaker Melanie Bolender, campus administrator at COTC Coshocton, also told the graduates to keep pushing forward when it comes to their education. “You did this and you can do it again,” she said. “There are jobs in Ohio, but they require skilled workers. Get the training and education you need. Once you get that and acquire the job you want show up every day and work hard.” Jandi Adams, ABLE Regional Program Manger – Ohio Board of Regents and former Coshocton ABLE Coordinator, and Joy Padgett, Director – Government Relations – COTC Coshocton and former Ohio State Senator and State Representative also were honorary guest speakers. “The difference between a dream and a goal is having a plan,” Padgett said. “Now that you have reached this one it is time to set your next goal. You may have a lot of goals in life and they might not all make it, but don’t stop. The goals that you do make are going to make a difference to you, your family and the entire community.” Mindy Fehrman, director of Coshocton County JFS, Nate Hackenbracht, Coshocton ABLE Coordinator, Lynn Jacobs, JFS Workforce Administrator and Danny Brenneman, assistant director of Coshocton County JFS also spoke at the ceremony.

the 2011-2012 GED Graduation Ceremony, which was held June 21, at the Triple Locks Theater. Barbara was one of five graduates to be inducted into the society.


“This is not an easy thing to acquire,” said Jacobs. “Forty-five percent of high school seniors would fail it if they took it on the day of graduation. When people ask if the GED is a legitimate credential, the answer is yes it absolutely is.” Coshocton County Job and Family Services announced the 2011-2012 G.E.D. graduates at the Triple Locks Theater on June 21. The graduates are as follows: Bonnie Ashcraft*, Zak Bailey, Barbara Brindley*, Jennifer Conrad, JoAnn Cottrill, Tosha Crowthers, Casey Davis, Destiny Davis, Mark Dickerson, Angela Espig, Drew Fortune, James Harwell, Ronna Hayes, Alicia Holmes, Jason Hough, Matthew Hume, Tara Jones*, Brandy Kitzmiller, Carissa Larr, Alisha McIntire, Georgia McKague, Rebecca Means, Bryant Miller, Linda Milligan, Tina Moran, Tori Mounts*, Brandon Parker, Brian Reed, Tracy Rockey, Robert Shane, Joseph Stockum, Damaris Strupe, Fred Thuener*, Zack Williamson A * designates membership in the National Adult Education Honor Society.

Pick your own berries at Windy Hills Berry Farm

He said that his cutting boards are quite popular around Mother’s Day, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day. Windy Hills Berry Farm’s products are available at Coshocton Farmer’s Market every Saturday from 8:30 a.m. – noon, at the Tuscarawas Family Farmer’s Market in Dover every Wednesday from 3 – 7 p.m., and at the Local Bounty in Coshocton, which is open Thursday and Friday from 2 – 6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. “I always tell people from out of town to pack their suits because when they’re all warm from picking berries, they can go jump in the pool at Lake Park and they can take the kids on the Canal Boat and take a trip through Roscoe Village,” said Terese To learn more about Windy Hills, find them on Facebook. Cost for berry picking varies due to weather and supply. BETH@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

usually peak around mid-July to mid-August. This is also followed by a fall crop, which lasts from mid-September to the first frost. Martin and Terese use all-natural, organic practices with no sprays. They use covers on the strawberries and nettings on the blueberries to keep birds and other animals from eating the berries. An electronic bird-in-distress call and a few lively chickens also help to scare away the birds and keep the bugs down. “We don’t spray,” said Terese. “Therefore, we get customers who are very health conscious.” Martin said that usually people will spend about an hour picking berries. However, many people travel to Windy Hills Berry Farm from out of town. “We have people who come for the berries,” said Martin. “From Columbus, Akron, Cleveland, and they’ll usually come prepared with hats. They’ll pick for a couple of hours.” Along with their berries, grapes, and vegetables, the Zelones also offer jams and jellies, all made from their berry crop. They make both traditional and non-traditional jams including sweet cherry jelly, ginger pear, rosemary grape, sweet potato butter, and their famous Grandma’s apple pie jam, which goes great with waffles or oatmeal. “We try to do jams and jellies that they just can’t buy in a store,” said Martin. In addition to the jams and jellies, Martin also makes hand-made wood cutting board from wood harvested off the farm. “Contrary to a lot of people’s beliefs, it takes about a year and a half before you can use the wood,” he said. “You’ve got to dry it and take the moisture out. So it air dries for almost a year and then you’ve got to do the cleaning and the shaving.” Martin produces both traditional wood cutting boards and custom-designed boards for


If you’re looking for luscious strawberries, sweet blueberries, juicy blackberries, delicious raspberries, plump grapes, and a variety of home-grown, vegetables, following organicgrowing practices, look no further than Windy Hills Berry Farm and Vineyard, located at 25354 Keene Township Road 26 in Coshocton. The farm is located on a beautiful 30 acres of land just a five-minute drive from Coshocton. What makes this berry farm even better is that not only can you buy quality-grown berries and vegetables, but you can also wander the grounds and pick your own. Call to schedule an appointment before visiting. “Because we have such a limited space here and limited crop, what we generally do is have people make an appointment,” said Martin Zelones, owner of the farm. “They can come out and we don’t have people getting in each other’s way. Usually when you pick your own, they’re bringing kids, so we kind of let them have full reign of whatever they’re picking. It’s for the experience for the kids.” Martin and his wife Terese Zelones have owned their berry farm for 10 years. They built the vineyard up from scratch and produce strawberries, black and red raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, as well as grapes, and a variety of vegetables including tomatoes, rhubarb, green onions, and much more with the help of some teen volunteers, Shelby Jones, Kyle and Baggio Sianjina, and Leeland Lauvray. Strawberries tend to have their seasonal peak around late May to early June, which is only about a three-week season. At this time of the year, the blueberries are just starting to peak and are ready for the picking. Usually, the black raspberries start peaking at this time of the year as well. However, because of the hot and dry weather we’ve been having, the black raspberry crop has all dried up this year. Blackberries

Canal boat to offer special cruises

Enjoy the outdoors BY JOSIE McCORMICK in Coshocton




A dinner cruise will take place Friday, June 29 and Saturday, July 21, and a wine and cheese cruise also will be held Saturday, Aug. 25 on the canal boat. To make reservations for the cruises call The Warehouse Steak n’ Stein at 622-4001. BEACON PHOTO

Coshocton has something for everyone when it comes to the great outdoors. You can hunt, fish, hike and enjoy beautiful flowers right here at home. Woodbury Wildlife Area State Office – 23371 State Route 60, Warsaw Shooting Range – 41384 State Route 541, Warsaw 824-3211 Largest public hunting and fishing area in Ohio. Operated by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and has been designated as a ‘Watchable Wildlife’ area home to such species as bobolinks, short-eared owls, rough legged hawks, and numerous songbirds.

Forest Hill Lake & Campground 52176 County Road 425, Fresno 545-9642

After cruising on the canal boat, make sure to stop over at Lake Park to take a swim, have a picnic at one of the many shelters, or take a walk around the lake. Roscoe Village is also close by and offers a historic setting along with its many unique and locally-owned shops. If you get hungry along the way, stop in at The Warehouse Steak n’ Stein, Captain Nye’s, or Uncorked, located in Roscoe Village.



Tom Roahrig and John Larson are working together to expand what the canal boat has to offer. A dinner cruise will take place Friday, June 29 and Saturday, July 21. A wine and cheese cruise also will be held Saturday, Aug. 25. “I know other cities have similar canal boats or other vessels that they do cruises on and I thought this would be neat for Coshocton,” said Larson from The Warehouse Steak n’ Stein. For the June 29 cruise, The Warehouse Steak n’ Stein put together a menu featuring the fresh flavors of the summer. For $30 people get a buffet dinner that features fresh tossed Caesar salad, fresh fruits, chef carved slow roasted prime rib, pan seared airline chicken breast with a barbeque glaze, fresh Alaskan grilled salmon with citrus dilled cream sauce, summer blend of fresh grilled vegetables with a pesto drizzle, garlic roasted fingerling potatoes with fresh rosemary, Bailey’s Irish Cream Cheesecake and freshly brewed coffee. The July 21 cruise also will cost $30 and alcohol will be served. After cruising down the canal, attendees will be dropped off at a dock overlooking the basin where they will have dinner under a tent. There also will be musical entertainment provided by Angie Pyle and Jon Cotterman. “We hope people that take the cruises will see the potential of the boat and will do it with their family or even church,” Larson said. The dinner cruise only has room for 30 people, but the wine and cheese event will be open to more. “I want to partner with Medbery Marketplace and use their cheeses,” Larson said. “I also want to partner with the local wineries.” About 75-80 people will be able to enjoy music, conversations and wine and cheese. “Our hope is that other groups will want to do (special) cruises too,” Larson said. “We can provide the food for them or they can get it from somewhere else.”

Roahrig stepped up to run the canal boat after the park district feared they were going to have to close it when its levy didn’t pass in November. “We are taking little steps and just trying to keep our feet under us,” he said. “We want people to come off of these cruises wishing we’d do more.” Roahrig also said that good partnerships have helped a lot with the process of taking over the canal boat. “I’ve been overwhelmed with the amount of people who have asked what they can do to help,” he said. The cruises are scheduled for 5:30 p.m., but Larson did not have a price set yet for the wine and cheese cruise. “People are going to walk away from these with a nice, relaxing, fun and different experience,” Roahrig said. To make reservations for the cruises call The Warehouse Steak n’ Stein at 622-4001. JOSIE@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

Casey Giffin, a manager at the local McDonalds, approached Campbell about applying for a grant through the Ronald McDonald Foundation which gives grants to organizations who have activities for children in their community. Campbell filled out the application and just last month received the grant. “We were unsure how to make this happen,”

You don’t have to go far to enjoy a glass of wine and a quiet country setting. “The wineries of Ohio and of this area have some great wines,” said Michael White, an owner of Yellow Butterfly Winery. “You don’t have to get on a plane for a great wine and great country setting to relax and forget the hectic lives we live.” White’s winery is one of the stops on the Three Rivers Wine Trail, which also includes Heritage Vineyards Winery & Guesthouse, Shawnee Springs, Raven’s Glenn Winery & Italian Restaurant and Rainbow Hills Vineyards and Bed & Breakfast. Each winery offers a variety of wines and much more. Heritage Vineyards has summer steak cookouts, live music and a relaxing atmosphere to sip your wine and enjoy a cheese plate. “You can come out and have a glass of wine and sit on the back porch or front porch,” said Tina Endsley, one of the owners. “Everyone says it’s quiet out here.” Shawnee Springs also is making use of its country setting this summer by having bonfires and live music on Fridays through mid August. Attendees are invited to bring their own food to throw on the grill. The winery also will feature homemade Sangria on Saturdays this summer. “At Shawnee Springs you can expect a comfortable and memorable experience,” said Rachel Hall, manager. The winery features seven wines with Cherry being its newest. “I think it helps that we grow and process our grapes here,” Hall said. “You can taste that coming through in the wine.” Hall also noted that Midnight Mist is probably the most popular and Elderberry is the most interesting. “It (Elderberry) has a complex flavor,” she said. “It has a small following and is unique to our area.” Hall also said that she feel people of all ages can feel comfortable at the winery and that children are welcome at the bonfires. “Our goal is for people to have a fun time and get to listen to good music,” she said. “We get an interesting mix of people and it changes with the music.” Raven’s Glenn Winery also likes to change things up. “We offer monthly themed, wine pairing dinners,” said Tonya Bevins, sales manager. “Our Memphis in June Barbeque Fest will feature Jeremy Timmons playing the fiddle and someone on the banjo and a five course wine pairing dinner in our outdoor pavilion. You will get entertainment, good food and good wine. We will take a break with the dinners in July and August but will start up again in September.” The dinner is from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, June 30 and the all inclusive price is $44.99. Reservations are required. The winery also offers tours, live music on select days for those dining in the restaurant and of course tastings of its more than 20 varieties of wines. “We are Ohio’s fasted and largest growing winery,” Bevins said. During the summer months you also can enjoy a meal by grilling your own steak at Rainbow Hills Vineyards. Reservations are required, but during regular hours you are always welcome to enjoy a glass of wine and lounge on the vineyards decks. “We have the fountain going and you can sit on the decks with wine, a bread and cheese plate and enjoy the shade,” said Lee Wyse, owner.

Indian Mud Run: 5K Run with Grueling Obstacles If you are a runner and are ready for one of the biggest challenges of your life, then Coshocton’s Indian Mud Run taking place on July 14 from 8 a.m. until sundown at Coshocton’s Lake Park Complex, may be just the personal challenge you’ve been looking for. Preregistration is required by going online to www.Indianmudrun. com. The participant fee is $45 and also includes food, beverages and live entertainment. Participants must be 14 years old or older. There will also be a kid’s obstacle with registration on site. Hubie Cushman, one of the event organizers and a runner himself, says that this is a 5K run with grueling obstacles. They planned this race as a fundraiser for the Coshocton Lake Park Complex and all proceeds from the event will benefit Lake Park. Race participants will receive a T-shirt, number tag with IR timing chip and an information packet. Those completing the

run will also receive a completion medal and, of course, bragging rights. “There are over 20 obstacles set up along the course,” said Cushman. “Some of the obstacles include a scramble up a hill and over a log ladder, then into the woods running past spectacular rock formations and down hills so steep you’ll need a rope to climb your way back to the trail. We also have a 150 foot water slide, and our ‘Chief’s Challenge’ – which is where you will climb monkey bars across water, then crawl under a 30-inch high deck, go down a steep bank, up a 20 foot climbing wall, down a cargo net, through a 50-foot mud pit and through a maze of hanging arrows—some of which are hooked to an electric fence charger. All this as hundreds of people are taking pictures and cheering you on.” Cushman says the committee is making final preparations to the course and could use

Organizers hope to grow Taste for Summer The total head count for the 2012 Taste for Summer was around 1,000 and Chris Wilson believes the event can get bigger and better. “This is something that was not suppose to be a festival, but it became one and we are going to keep it that way and grow it,” Wilson said. “We had over 50 volunteers and staff members on hand this year and we are going to need more next year.” The second annual Taste for Summer wine and barbecue festival was held May 19, at Clary Gardens. A total of $6,315 was raised after all bills were paid and that money will be used to help Clary Gardens develop its children’s garden. A big help in drawing people to the event was a story about it in Ohio’s Amish Country magazine, which is put out by Graphic Publications. “We were able to get exposure for Clary

Gardens, Taste for Summer and the entire county,” said Kerry Rapp, director of Clary Gardens. “We had people from Pittsburgh, Pa., West Virginia and lots of other places. I think a lot of people that came also came to Roscoe Village because it was really hopping that day.” Wilson, who runs The Village Pantry of Roscoe with his wife Jenny, and Rapp spoke at a meeting held June 19 at River Greens Golf Course to recap the 2012 Taste for Summer and make plans for next year. “We want this to be what people talk about when they talk about summer,” Chris said. One idea Chris brought up to the group was doing a nine and wine event at River Greens during the morning of Taste for Summer. Attendees would play golf and at each hole taste a different wine. His goal is to have each winery at Taste for Summer represented and invite more wineries if needed.


additional volunteers. “We need lots of little things done yet,” he said. “We need people to rake, gather sticks and rocks from the course, and some people with some buildings skills to finish up a few of the obstacles. Chainsaws and ATVs would also be helpful.” Volunteers are working daily to prepare for the July 14 event and there is a big workday every Saturday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Contact Cushman if you would like to volunteer at (740) 623-0613 or at Photos of the course, the location, registration information, and other details are available at or check them out on Facebook for a chance to win prizes. For additional information about Coshocton go to or call 800-3384724.

BY JOSIE McCORMICK “We’d have one type of wine at each hole and that hole would be sponsored by that winery,” Chris said. “They would also get admission to Taste for Summer and get to taste the rest of the wines with the purchase of a tasting ticket. We want people to come and enjoy the entire weekend in Coshocton.” The addition of beer from Weasel Boy in Zanesville also was discussed. “We had a lot of requests for beer,” Chris said. He also encouraged those in attendance to continue to cross promote their events. Other minor changes were brought up, but overall most were pleased with the way the event went and is headed. “For a second year event it was very well done,” said Dixie Wyler from Eastern Ohio Tours.

Fresno Farmers’ Market can help you with summertime fun Lazy, hazy summertime...what a fabulous time of year. I don’t know about you, but my thoughts always turn to camping during these summer months. Growing up we went camping every weekend. Nothing beat sitting around the camp fire roasting hot dogs and marshmallow, while listening to the “grown ups” tell stories. Why not let yourself be a kid again, and get the entire family back to nature by going tent camping? Whether you enjoy “roughing it” in a tent with no electric or facilities like my husband and son do or if you feel like air conditioning and running water are a must have, either way get out and enjoy this summer. You will be making life long memories for your children and grandchildren to come. The vendors at the Fresno Farmers’ Market have all of the essential ingredients for a great camp out, like: Fresh brown eggs to cook on an open fire, homemade sliced bread to make toast on a stick, homemade noodles to make a pot of beef and noodles or a wide selection of fresh vegetables to make stew in an old fashion dutch oven. Then we can’t forget dessert...fresh donuts for your coffee, angel food cake with fresh blueberries, homemade pie, cookies and my personal favorite around the camp pies.


For those non-campers not familiar with fire pies, they are kind of like a grilled cheese sandwich cooked over the hot coals; only you put anything you want, like: fresh fruit, pie fillings, pizza makings or Reuben ingredients between the two slices of homemade bread. But here’s a new idea you might like to try: Cowboy Smores. This is what you’ll need to do. Take two slices of homemade wheat or white bread, butter one side of each, place in pie iron butter side down. Place one Reese Peanut Butter Cup and one marshmallow between the slices of bread, close pie iron and cook over hot coals until bread is golden brown and the wondrous center is melted and gooey. For those of you in need of purchasing a pie iron for your next camping adventure, they can be found in just about any camping supply isle. But before you head out on your next camping trip, make it a point to stop out to the Fresno Market first. Your vendors will help you make your camping experience a memorable one, by bringing the farm to your family’s picnic table. Speaking of memories, do you recall catching fireflies and putting them into one of your Mom’s old mason jars, poking holes in the

President Lincoln to speak at Solid Rock President Abraham Lincoln will speak in person about his life as a Christian at the Solid Rock Foursquare Church, located at 46160 CR 55 (Hill Street) in Roscoe Village. Mr. Lincoln will be portrayed by former Coshocton resident, David A. Wolfe II, who now lives in Kentucky. Wolfe has always had an interest in American history, especially the United States presidents. He remembers that he first admired Mr. Lincoln when Wolfe was a young student in Coshocton. “I’ve always loved the presidents and history,” he said. “I’ve done some acting in college and I’ve always enjoyed American history. This one teacher had all of the presidents on the wall and I remember looking at Lincoln and thinking, ‘Wow, what a wonderful president’.” Wolfe was approached by long-time friend Joan Howard, who had portrayed President Thomas Jefferson’s wife, and convinced Wolfe that he would make a great President Lincoln. With her persistence, along with the encouragement of Wolfe’s friend and mentor, Jim Sayer, Wolfe took on the challenge of becoming America’s 16th President. Howard and Sayer were Wolfe’s big supporters as he started out and helped with Wolfe’s first few gigs. Along with Lincoln, Wolfe has also portrayed Wyatt Earp, best known for his part in the gunfight at the O.K. Corral, and John Hunt Morgan, Confederate general and cavalry officer in the Civil War. Wolfe also participated in Civil


War reenactments for 11 years. But his passion now is portraying Mr. Lincoln. Wolfe said he has always enjoyed studying and reading about Lincoln and took a course in college dedicated to the president. “I always get a little nervous,” Wolfe said about appearing before an audience. “I might say a little prayer before I go on asking God to give me words of wisdom and guidance, and He always does.” There is still debate among historians as to whether or not Lincoln was a Christian. In the presentation at Solid Rock Foursquare Church, Wolfe as Mr. Lincoln will be presenting his case to the congregation and they will decide for themselves. ‘Lincoln, The Christian’ presentation is something that Wolfe composed himself after researching Lincoln from a Christian point of view. Wolfe discovered a lot of evidence that Lincoln not only believed in God, but had the highest reverence for Him. Wolfe found that in Lincoln’s inaugural address alone, there were three passages from the Bible and 14 references to God. “I love to entertain,” said Wolfe. “Whether it be acting or music or whatever. I’m excited about it (presenting at Solid Rock). I can’t wait.” ‘Lincoln, The Christian’ will be Sunday, July 1 at 10:30 a.m. at Solid Rock Foursquare Church.

lid and then using it as your night light? Try it with your own children. These are the kind of stories they will be telling to your grandchildren some day. How cool is that? One last thing, I do have an unanswered question. Why does it only take one match to start a forest fire, but it takes a whole book of them to start a camp fire? Puzzling, isn’t it? Whatever you do this summer with your family, please do it safely and make family memories to last a lifetime. Your vendors look forward to seeing you soon at the Fresno Farmers’ Market. For information regarding the Market, please call me at 545-0849 or Mark McCoy at 545-0997 anytime. The Fresno Market is open every Saturday morning from 8 a.m. to noon now through October.

The All-Ohio Youth Choir’s Cardinal Chorale will be in Coshocton for the finale performance of its six-day, 14-concert summer tour. The concert will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 28, at Roscoe United Methodist Church, 475 High St. The Chorale’s 90-minute program will feature selections from their 2011 show, “Walk Together,” music that “will fill the soul and lift the spirit,” as one listener described a Chorale performance. Organized in the summer of 1995 by its director, Charles R. Snyder, the Cardinal Chorale has become the select traveling ensemble of the 200-voice All-Ohio Youth Choir. In its 17-year history, the Chorale has been invited to sing for a number of professional conferences and has performed on the campuses of Capital University, Muskingum University, Kent State University, Ohio University and Penn State University. The Chorale has also sung for a number of state celebrations including the rededication of the Ohio Statehouse, and the state’s Martin Luther King Jr. celebration in Columbus. In the summer of 1998, the Chorale shared its musical magic on a concert tour of England, France, and Wales. Local members of the current Chorale include Trent Adams, Emma Brems, Kyle Conrad, Kayla Cowden, Katelyn Guenther, Tyler Hahn, Brad Harvey, Liz Kittner, Alex Lawrence, Michael Ondayko, Melanie Rice, Nathan Shutt and Justin Swails. There is no admission charge for the concert, but an offering will be received to help cover the Chorale’s travel expenses.

The Soda Fountain at Miller Pharmacy will again this year be joining over 50 fellow ice cream shops across America to take part in the “I Pledge” campaign during the month of July. The campaign was launched by Stratton Leopold to underscore the importance of patriotism among school children. “We couldn’t believe the enthusiasm this generated last year from children and parents alike. What a positive way to celebrate National Ice Cream month, which falls in July.” Leopold said. The “I Pledge” rewards children 12 and under for reciting the Pledge of Allegiance from memory with a free ice cream cone. The Soda Fountain at Miller Pharmacy in Coshocton Towne Centre will be hosting the campaign from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Tuesday July 3. Children who correctly recite the Pledge of Allegiance will receive a voucher for a free ice cream cone. The voucher is redeemable throughout the month of July. “The Miller family is very excited to participate in this national campaign. The drug store soda fountains are becoming extinct in the United States. What a fun way for parents to introduce their children to a memory from their past and promote patriotism as well.” Miller said. Over 150 children from Coshocton County participated in last year’s I pledge project at Miller Pharmacy and its soda fountain will be celebrating 56 years on Aug. 1, 2012.

BEACON PHOTO BY JOSIE McCORMICK The Wigs for Cancer 50/50 drawing was held June 22, at Country Clips Beauty Shop. The winner of the 50/50 was Amanda Chaney, she received $517.50 and donated half of her money back to the cause. There was a second chance drawing for a spa day at Country Clips featuring a massage by Heidi Koch, a manicure and pedicure by Stacie Addy, hair cut and style by the stylist of your choice, and teeth whitening by Cathy Schlegel. ($125 value) The winner of the second chance drawing was Lena Stubbs. This program started in 2001 by Schlegel and Julie Amore was inspired by Joyce Fry, who was on their golf league and was battling cancer. Schlegel would take care of the wigs and Amore organized the fundraising. Then Amore had cancer problems of her own and the program was left with no one to organize the fundraising. This is the third year that BPW has helped with fundraising for the Wigs program. BPW is about women helping women and was able to raise more than $1,000 for Wigs for Cancer. This program is for Coshocton County residents only but Schlegel gets referrals for Coshocton women from the Coshocton Oncology Department, James Cancer Center and Zanesville. Schlegel donates her time working with the women ordering and shaping their wigs. If you wish to make a contribution to the Wigs for Cancer program in memory of a relative, friend or neighbor, you can contact Schlegel at Country Clips at 622-2112 or donate directly to Ohio Heritage Bank. The account is called, Wigs for Cancer. If you wish to learn more about Coshocton Business and Professional Women (BPW) contact membership chair, Elizabeth (Liz) Herrell at 294-0199. Meetings are held on the third Monday of each month at different locations and any woman or man who supports the group’s legislative platform is eligible for membership. BPW’s e-mail address is

Members of the community got a firsthand look at farming June 22, during a tour of agriculture businesses. The Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce and Soil & Water Conservation District organized the tour to show the challenges and rewards of the industry and bring the business and agriculture community closer together. “We spend 10 percent of our income on food in America,” said Deb Bigelow, Coshocton County’s SWD District Administrator. “In China the percentage is 32 and in Pakistan it’s 50 percent. We enjoy the safest food in the world thanks to our agriculture leaders.” The tour of agriculture businesses included a drive by of the Ag as Art Project in the cloverleaf area and visits to WenMar Farms, Darr Farms and Schumaker Farms.

Stafford to retire from Hopewell On Wednesday June 27, Burl J Stafford will attend his last board meeting before retiring from the Hopewell Industries, Inc. Board of Directors. Burl J. Staff had a “profound effect” on Hopewell Industries, Inc.

In 1983, while working for Ansell Edmont, Burl was asked by his boss to “see what he could do to help Hopewell”. Burl visited Hopewell Industries and then agreed to help them set up a new accounting system, then agreed to become a board member. Burl is truly unique in the way that he has unselfishly given for the past 29 years. Burl has served on the Hopewell Industries, Inc. Board from 1983 to June 2012. “Leadership is ultimately about creating a way for people to contribute to making something extraordinary happen.” – Alan Keith


One only has to tour Hopewell Industries to see extraordinary happen. Slightly more than a quarter of the American population volunteers for a charity. However, 10% of the volunteers are doing the majority of volunteering. Hopewell Industries, Inc. is looking for volunteers of all ages, interest and expertise that would like to get involved. We recognize that we will never find another Burl J. Stafford however; we are looking for individual people that want to contribute to the Hopewell community.
