for the love of tractors

This beauty is a 1937 General tractor and is proudly owned by Denny Adams. Denny’s tractor was among the 100 plus tractors that were showcased at the third annual Antique Tractor Show last weekend. Denny showcased three out of eight of his tractors in this year’s show and says he enjoys restoring old tractors to their original beauty. He said that this particular tractor is similar to the ones his dad used to have when he was a kid. BeAcon pHoTo By jAn myerS

Stroll down the towpath or just down Whitewoman Street and enjoy the beautiful gardens throughout the village. Weekends are especially lively, with extended shopping hours at several businesses, live entertainment on the restaurants’ patios, the Toy Cellar free vintage toy exhibit, Museum tours, and Canal Town Journey tours. When was the last time you took a historical tour? Meet the blacksmith and observe as he works the forge and hammers on his latest project, sit in on a one-room schoolhouse lesson, let Dr. Maro Johnson show you his archaic and slightly menacing office tools, and watch the weaver create a rug on an enormous loom. Do you know how brooms were made in the 1800s? The broom squire will tell you. Don’t forget to check out the latest Chinese art exhibit at the Museum and of course a cool, relaxing ride on the horse-drawn Monticello III canal boat is a must. Roscoe Village is the place to watch. Keep up with us on Facebook, Twitter, and on our Web site at, which will Justin Harstine, graduate of Ridgewood High soon be interactive! School and son of Steve Harstine and Ronalda Rose, graduated from Muskingum University on May 8, 2010 with honors, summa cum laude. Justin has a bachelor’s degree in art education.


Roscoe Village welcomes three new businesses to Whitewoman Street. Medberry Marketplace, owned by the McKenna family, is located in the old hotel and offers deli meats and cheeses at the best prices in town, gourmet foods, international and ethnic food items, old-fashioned bottled sodas, bulk candy and nuts, and unique buys you won’t find anywhere else. Stop in for a huge dill pickle on a stick, or grab a quick lunch to go from the self-serve antipasto bar. Down the street you’ll find The Village Pantry of Roscoe, offering both modern and period kitchen goods, like cookware, bake ware, cast iron, and unique kitchen gadgets and tools. It’s a great place to shop for any cook, from the weekend grillmaster to the professional chef. If you’ve never ordered a loaded stadium dog and frozen custard at the same counter, you’re in for a treat at Captain Nye’s Custard, Coneys & Candies. The same Chicago-style hot dogs you get at the ballpark, nachos and a double-scoop of old-fashioned frozen custard make a fun lunch in the village. Reacquaint yourself with Roscoe. We’re just around the corner and have a lot to offer families and friends in the summertime. Take your lunch break in the village. Eat on the patios of Warehouse Steak & Stein and Uncorked.

The hospital staff wants to serve as a positive role model for people who will represent their profession and who may one day become one of their coworkers. It is so critical for students to have the opportunity and experience that can only be gained in an actual patient care setting. Jeannie Bullock, a COTC student who completed her training at Coshocton Hospital said, “The clinical experience I had at Coshocton Hospital was beyond my expectations. I feel that the guidance from both the nurses and my clinical instructor will help me throughout my career as a nurse. I hope the hospital continues to be a teaching facility for our future nurses.” The process that the hospital follows to assure patient safety is detailed. The initial contact is made thru Staff Development. Hospital managers are then contacted to assure the student can be accommodated. Students are required to complete an orientation, sign confidentiality agreements, provide health screening information, and for clinical experiences have a criminal background check. Only after all the paperwork is completed are students scheduled for their shadowing or clinical experience. Preceptor and externship placements may require additional paperwork as evaluations are completed and returned to the schools. The healthcare profession continues to change, but there is one thing that remains the same. If you become ill, you hope a kind, caring, skilled person is available to care for you. By nurturing future healthcare providers in their journey, Coshocton Hospital helps assure the future of excellent healthcare right here, close to home.

Proud to have served the people of Coshocton and our surrounding communities for over 113 years!

at the hospital from schools that have established contracts with Coshocton Hospital for such. Some of the contracts include COTC, Zane State College, Walsh University, Mountain State University, Coshocton Career Center, Buckeye Career Center, Everest Institute, and Washington County Schools Career Center. OSU College of Medicine and Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine also have affiliations with the hospital’s local physician offices for internships for medical students. Debbie Graham, Senior Director of Patient Services at Coshocton Hospital serves on the Advisory Board for COTC and the Coshocton County Career Center. “Coshocton Hospital believes it is a privilege to be a part of the students’ experiences as they enter the healthcare profession,” said Graham. “We have staff with many years of longevity that provide the students with great opportunities for learning.” There are different levels of involvement the hospital assumes in this process. The experience referred to as “shadowing” lasts from a few hours to a day or two and is limited to observation only. The “shadower” may not provide hands-on care and does not have access to patient records. This is usually requested by individuals wishing to gain entrance into a health-related program and is often a requirement for enrollment in the program. The more advanced level or “clinical experience” is limited to students who are already in a program and is most often completed near the end of the program or after the classroom portion is completed. The clinical experience can last from a week or two to several months. Clinical students work as a team with a clinical instructor from the school or with a “preceptor” who is a hospital employee. Although the clinical student may provide patient care and access medical records, they are always under the direct supervision of the trainer. Students are never included in the staff count, meaning that they work alongside, never in place of, the regular staff. Students are also required to wear their student identification at all times to further delineate them from licensed care providers. Coshocton Hospital strives to accommodate students as much as possible to support and encourage them in their chosen career focus in a variety of areas including nursing, radiology, physical & occupational therapy, laboratory


While classroom studies are important, it’s the hands-on experience that is most vital to the growth and development of those seeking careers in healthcare. Realizing this, Coshocton Hospital is proud to play a role in the education of tomorrow’s medical professionals. The role Coshocton Hospital plays in these programs has been significant and the number of students that have participated at the hospital continues to grow. In 2008, the hospital assisted 154 students. In 2009 the number increased to 173. Year to date for 2010, over 150 students have participated in shadowing or clinical experiences

The goal of the VBS was to raise $2000 for the U.S. Church of the Nazarene’s Hope Project, which raises money for children on the street and using it to getting them food and help, Daniels said. Everyday had activities that included arts and crafts, and outdoor games. The activities all stayed on site for the children, ranging from kindergarten to sixth grade. The kids were not divided into age groups, but rather had children of every age in each group so that they could learn from one another, Daniels said. “They got wet every day,” she said. Teenagers were enticed to help with the Bible School and it was successful with more than 30 teens helping. They were promised a mission trip to Chicago if they helped. Also,


The Vacation Bible School’s theme at Coshocton’s Church of the Nazarene was a high seas expedition. “It comes from the idea that when we are navigating life we can turn to God’s word,” volunteer Kris Hardesty said. Each day had a theme that dealt with God’s word. The first day said that God’s word is true, then that it is comforting, then surprising, then life changing. On the last day it was that it is for everyone, said Kelly Daniels, children’s pastor. A lighthouse is one of the focal points of the entire VBS. Each day it was built up a little more. As the finale, the light was turned on a, foghorn blew and the children were all splashed. After that prizes came raining down on the kids, Daniels said. “They all wait for it every year because they do it at the end of every VBS,” she said. Another activity was building a chain of “God sightings.” Children would create links and write on them different ways God has touched

Don owned another bakery 40 years ago, although not in Coshocton. When he moved to Coshocton, he worked at the Main Office Supply Print Shop for many years before he retired. Don said that he wanted to open a bakery in Coshocton because he wanted to bring something special to the community and create more jobs for the unemployed. “There just wasn’t enough going on in town,” he said, “No excitement. No good news. It was just something I could do. I thought I could open up a little shop and a few jobs for a few people, and add to the community and I hope they like it.” Don said that even though he was excited about opening a new business, the inspections and regulations surprised him.

The Cancer Resource Center began looking for a new location because of water damage in their old office and also due to lack of space.

With their new office, they will now be able to have board meetings in the office as opposed to a church or other area businesses. “I’m hoping that this location will help people see that we’re here,” said Regina Bryant, volunteer at the office, “I think it’s all about visibility and I think this is just going to be such a better location for people to come in.” Another goal of moving to a new location is to be more involved with First Fridays and other events in downtown Coshocton. The next step for the office is to get the Internet and phone up and running. After that, shelves will be added so as to display more pamphlets. The Cancer Resource Center’s main goal is to spread awareness of cancer. They have various brochures to read, videos to watch, and people are always welcome to come in and browse the Internet for cancer-related research. “We’re hoping that people will just come in,” said Bryant. “It seems to me a more attractive atmosphere. It’s open, it’s airy, it’s light in here.

expected. After having his plans approved by the state and receiving a building permit, Don hired an architect to do the job. After even more inspections, Don was finally ready to start business. Although he said he understands why there are so many health inspections, Don said, “It took a lot longer and a lot more money than I thought it would.” Padgett’s Donuts currently has about ten employees. They have had their doors open for business for about three weeks and are open Monday – Saturday 6 a.m. – 8 p.m. “I’m getting good feedback from people who’ve been in,” Don said, “People seem to like these donuts. If anyone hasn’t tried them, they should stop in and get a donut or two.” A grand opening at Padgett’s Donuts is currently in the planning process. They are located on 7th Street close to the fairgrounds.

After conquering cancer three years ago, Bryant vowed that if she survived, she wanted to help others battling this disease. She’s hoping that this will encourage people to volunteer at the office whenever their schedule permits. “The main goal is awareness,” said Bryant, “I think that is really a lot of the main goal in a lot of the cancer resource centers is awareness. We have all kinds of brochures as far as things you can do to help prevent cancer and I think that’s part of the awareness. But I think also you have to look at the fact that we have all of the tools here available for people who have cancer. Not necessarily the cancer patients but their family and friends. We have lots of books dealing with coping with cancer and family members. So I think awareness is key, but I also think the coping process as well.” To contact the Cancer Resource Center, call their office at 291-8273. Their phone should be up and running in a couple of weeks. You can also stop by their office at 240 Main St on Wednesday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. and talk to Regina. If you would like to volunteer, contact their office. Your help would be much appreciated.

The Lake Park Aquatic Center opened its doors to the public for a free swim day Wednesday, July 7 and people came. Erika Powell, who usually would be taking money, kept track of how many people came and went. She said that by 2 p.m., 886 people had already come to take advantage of the event. Past years have had even greater attendance, pool manager Helen Boyd said. Once a year, the swimming pool allows the public in for free. Boyd said that Lori Everhart, Lake Park director, chooses which day will be free. With the mercury rising above 90 degrees and the sun burning the black top, Everhart chose well. “It’s a way of saying thank you to our customers,” Boyd said. Going to a swimming pool can be costly, especially one that offers waterslides and a jungle gym. The great thing about the free swim day is that larger families, who usually would not be able to afford to go to a public pool, have a chance to get out and get wet, Boyd said. Levi Schneider, 18, arrived at the pool at noon. The pool was pretty nice and he enjoyed the slides, he said while taking a break to eat

The Coshocton County Antique Power Association’s (CCAPA) third annual summer show was held this past weekend at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds, showcasing over one hundred antique tractors. The show featured John Deere tractors and equipment this year and also welcomed the Ohio Two Cylinder Club. Jim Shroyer from Fresno is the president of the CCAPA. He and the rest of the members of the club feel this year’s show has been a success. “This is our biggest year yet,” he said. “We have been building the event each year and this show we added the tractor pull. It’s a lot of work to put all this together, but it’s a fun time for us.” Jim Ronshausen, treasurer of the club, agrees. “We are pleased to have had such a great turnout of tractors on display for the show,” he said. “We had 68 of the full size John Deere tractors here and 13 of the John Deere lawn and garden tractors. Plus, we had 19 other lawn and garden and 29 various other models of larger tractors.” Bob and Mary Reed brought their Ford 860 to the event. “It’s our show tractor,” said Bob. “It’s red, black and gray with lots of chrome. I take it to Mt. Hope’s show and bring it here each year.” The Reeds also have an Allis Chalmers WD and a WD45. “I used to drive the WD45 on our farm to make hay,” Mary said. “It was my daughter’s and my favorite tractor. She even used to wash it and wax it.” Barbara and Tom Fabian brought their 1958 730 John Deere for the tractor pull. “I’m just doing this for fun,” said Tom. “I pull it at the Mt. Hope show each year, too. That’s all the shows I take it to. This is my show tractor. I have a John Deere 430, a 530 and a 630 at home that I use for the farm. I’ve always been partial to the pre1960 John Deere models.” The CCAPA was formed four years ago and currently has 85 members. Their newest member is Nate McNeal who just joined the club over the weekend. He brought his 1952 John Deere A to the show. “I was four years old when my dad bought this tractor,” he said. “I remember it

coming off the truck. We used it all the time on the farm and it has never been out of the family. I just had Steve Fender restore it for us, and it looks better than ever. I told Steve when I picked it up that I just wish my dad could see it now all restored. Steve told me ‘He’s here and sees it.’ That was probably about the best thing Steve could have said to me. This tractor will always stay in our family. I’ll pass it on to my son and so on.” Denny Adams brought several of his tractors to the show. He’s been in the club since it started and enjoys buying old tractors and restoring them. “I have eight tractors currently and brought three of them to the show,” he said. “One of them is a 1937 General which is similar to the one my dad had when I was a kid.” The Coshocton County Antique Power Association is already planning next year’s show for July 8, 9 and 10, 2011 featuring Allis Chalmers. Shroyer says that new members are always welcome. “We’d like to see more young people getting involved,” he said. “It seems sometimes that it’s more us older guys who are interested because these old tractors are the ones we grew up with. I grew up with John Deere tractors all my life. I milked cows for 31 years and just sold my farm in 2001. I sort of miss it, but still have eight tractors I play with.” The CCAPA club meets the second Sunday of each month at 3:00 at Tractor Supply in Coshocton and Shroyer says you don’t have to have an old tractor to become involved.

show. We just really appreciate all the sponsors and businesses that have donated to Hospice through this event.” Dave Clark from Crowtown Customz brought some of the custom bikes he has worked on to the show. “I do the paint and body work on the bikes with Mickey Smith,” said Clark. “I’ve been doing this kind of work for over 20 years. We work on bikes from all over the country. It takes anywhere from four to five months to complete a custom bike job like this. A lot of the parts have to be made by hand.” Warren Courtney works with the Coshocton Memorial Fest committee. “I’ve been the gate keeper for two years now,” he said. “I love helping people and this event is for such a good cause. We’ve had four times as many bikes here than last year. I just love doing this.” The Coshocton Memorial Fest committee is already working on next year’s event.

The sixth annual Coshocton Memorial Fest Poker Run and Sam Rivera Bike Show saw a huge turnout on Saturday. With perfect weather for motorcycle riding, live entertainment, a bike show and other activities, the participants and guests had fun while raising money for Hospice of Coshocton. “This has been a much bigger event than in past years,” said Sheri Fortune, of the Coshocton Memorial Fest Committee. “We are so thankful to all the volunteers and committee members for making this such a success.” The James Gano family also participated this year to raise money for Hospice by organizing the Gano Memorial auction, which was held Friday night. “The auction went extremely well,” added Fortune. “The Kraft Company and employees donated $3,289 toward the auction. So with all the other sales, the auction raised over $4,000, which will be combined with the other monies raised from the weekend’s events to be donated to Hospice.” The poker run saw nearly 250 riders. Steve Guilliams from Coshocton was one of them. “I liked the ride,” he said. “It was a scenic route with lots of good stops. I always do the ride at this event each year.” Shannon Roof handles the organizing of the Sam Rivera Bike Show portion of the event. He was Rivera’s nephew. “We are pleased with the turnout of bikes for the show this year,” said Roof. “We were hoping for around 30 and that’s about where we are. We’ve already surpassed last year’s numbers. We seem to be getting a higher end of bikes coming in for this show.” Roof says they plan to add a couple of new classes to the bike show next year—the pro bike builders class and a rat bike class. “We’ll be making this bigger and better every year,” he added. “Sam’s family is interested in keeping his name involved in something like this for a good cause like Hospice.

later astounded at the change. All the cottages on the hill above the lake had been torn down, four of which I had called my home during my tenure there as a fun-loving child. The swimming pool had found a new location at the center edge of the lake, but the old dance hall had stayed in place. As in the “Tale of Two Cities”, it was the worst of times, it was the best of times. Probably the worst of times for my parents who struggled to keep the family boat afloat, but the best of times for a fun-loving kid such as myself with Lake Park offering up the most fun-loving opportunities a kid could have ever wanted. Lake Park has, and always will remain with me, only as the very best of memories. Submitted by Dick Grimm.

Johns leased the property from the owners, state, federal, private, I’m not certain, and allowed private cottages to be built along the east towpath. The west side of the lake was turned into an amusement park where the name, “Lake Park” spawned its name. It housed a shooting gallery, a merry-go round, a penny arcade, a large refreshment stand and one of the finest dance halls in the state at that time. A large ball park and wrestling area were added during the short time I lived there. This was the Big Band era and Lake Park was noted for its dances and its high quality music. People came from miles around to participate in the festivities. Also, the Lake Park Hill Golf Course, owned and operated by the Scarr family, was one of the finest around and added to the Johns’ attractions. A regular Friday night wrestling card was of great influence to those of that demeanor as well. The swimming area at that time was along the highway on the north end of the lake where yours truly spent most of his summer hours. A swimming suit was the dress order for the day throughout the summer. I now have a bad case of skin cancer derived from those searing, summer fun times. After I left Coshocton, Ohio in the fall of 1941, I didn’t visit the park all that often and was


It was in 1931 or 32 when the depression finally overtook the Reeve’s Steel Mill in Dover, Ohio. My father, Donald Grimm, along with many others, suddenly found themselves unemployed. Credit didn’t enter into the picture much back then. We lived on the “pay as you go” plan. The depression automatically cut off the “pay” part and for many, like my father, the only thing left to do was to “go”. That is to say, go anywhere one could find work. For us, that turned out to be the small town of Coshocton, Ohio around 40 miles west of Dover. My dad’s brother, Ed, found Dad a job in the Moore Enameling Plant in West Lafayette, Ohio, a manufacturing establishment that still had its head above water, but not for long. Dad’s position, being at the bottom of the pecking ladder, came and went as would a blessed visitor and by 1934 became but an evanescent dream. There were no life-saving unemployment benefits during that era. There was something called “relief” that allowed a recipient a small amount of food for a large amount of work. Dad shoveled snow from all the walks on and bordering the County Courthouse square within the quadrant of third, fourth, Main, and Chestnut streets for two bags of groceries. It seemed almost a punishment rather than a beneficial gift. But we were hungry. We found housing in a small, two room cottage along the tow path at the artificial basin #2, which is now the established municipal park honored by this 25 year recognition bash given by the city of Coshocton. The Park, known then as simply “Lake Park” was bordered on the east side by a row of summer cottages. These cottages stood side by side in a row along the tow path between the first and third basins. Roscoe Basin, not split then by SR 36, was Basin 1 and was headed by the feed mill where the canal boats loaded and unloaded their cargo. At the east end of Roscoe Basin was the outlet into the second basin known then as “Lake Park”. An aqueduct was established between these two basins built to raise and lower the waters of the Walhonding River” to allow the canal boats to enter the second basin and then proceed by horse-drawn tow on towards Dover, Ohio and points northeast. The floods of 1913 demolished this aqueduct. However, the usefulness of the aqueduct and the canal itself had gone into diminishing usefulness by those times. The third basin was dubbed “Mudport Basin”. It housed nothing but a fish hatchery. I was but a child nine years of age when we moved to Lake Park. My recollection of the period that fell upon my ears in fragments over the period of the four years I lived there were remembered as this: The land in and around Lake Park had been acquired by a Mr. Dick Johns and his wife Helen. As I recall a pair of Vaudeville actors from, I’m not certain just where. Anyhow, Mr.

The event was sponsored by the Roscoe Village Business Association (RVBA) and featured a Sheriff’s cruiser, Coshocton City fire truck, military jeep driven by West Lafayette Mayor Jack Patterson with a special passenger, Betsy Ross (aka Alice Hoover). The parade was led by the American flag with four volunteers stretching it taut as they marched from the Visitor’s Center to the stage on Whitewoman Street, where the flag hung on display during the ceremony. Following the ride and the Pledge of Allegiance, Lynette Wright, member of the RVBA, told the riders and their families that, “All of the businesses of Roscoe Village helped The Beacon put this parade on.” Wright then introduced Betsy Ross (Alice Hoover) who provided the children and adults in attendance with a glorious history of Old Glory and how George Washington and a group of men asked her – a

Then Patterson, who portrayed a World War II Army soldier from the 37th Division (a unit based in Coshocton of the Ohio Army National Guard), explained that all of his clothing and the restored jeep were of the World War II era. Wright and Diane Miller then handed out treat bags to the children and drew the winning ticket for the bicycle, which was won by Evan Bradford. The bike was donated by Auer Ace Hardware. Bradford said, “I was glad to win because I needed a bike.” Five-year-old Kiera McPeck said, “I had a great time.” The Old Warehouse Restaurant provided a free hot dog lunch for the kids. Flags were provided by the Annin Flag Company. Kids also had the opportunity to win prizes on a treasure hunt that involved visiting each of the businesses in Roscoe Village. Roscoe Village business owner Lynette Wright commented, “We’re very pleased. We had a great turnout and we were well supported by these kids and their fans. Every business here in Roscoe and even from Coshocton helped us. I wanted each of these kids to have an American Flag and Annin Flag came through. It was a great celebration.” Diane Miller, owner of the Roscoe General Store, said, “I think it’s just exciting to get kids back to the history of why we celebrate the Fourth of July. It’s important for them to know that it’s not all about fireworks, there’s also some history in there as well.”
