Mark Fortune f you’re a Michael Jackson fan, read no further. You may not like what you read. I am not talking about his music – he had a gift and a passion for creating music that touched and reached millions on our planet. But to literally offer up a worship of the man just goes a bit too far and shows just how much influence today’s sports stars, musicians and entertainers have on our world. In many cases, but not all mind you, these are the wrong types of people to endear ourselves to. What draws us to these stars and the people that have only one name for their moniker? Did you even know that Farrah Fawcett passed away at about the same time as Jackson? And yes, my brother had one of those famous red swimsuit posters. (At least I think it was my brother – could that have been me? Surely not) Or did you know that




on the same day that Jackson died, over 1,000 of our ever diminishing World War Two veteran’s died? Or that people near and dear to loved ones right here in Coshocton County went to a better place? No, they may not get the press coverage or media highlights that the stars do, but I would bet that they lived a life of character, honor and integrity. They may not have left a legacy that is known to the world, but I would bet they left a legacy for their family to remember. On the local level, there are some really positive things starting to happen. Yes, the economy is still sluggish and unemployment numbers may yet climb – but recall that those are lagging numbers – and reflect things in the past – not the future. Woodbury Outfitters has announced that they will be moving to the former Big Bear location on South Second Street, a great move for Joe Miller and his business – and also for the businesses on Second Street. More traffic means more exposure. Oh, did we say more traffic? We really need to look at the timing of those stoplights. Endsley Insur-

ance Agency is expanding and we predict there will be more positive things happening on this end of town in the near future. I can recall many people saying that Second Street would die when Wal Mart moved away – yet it really doesn’t seem that the traffic count has diminished all that much – especially if you are travelling at lunchtime! There are some other good things ready to happen. It is possible that our community may bounce back from the economy before the rest of the nation – which is a normal occurrence for our area in many instances. We seem to lag the national trends. Perhaps in this economy that is a good thing. We know that some of our readers were expecting The Beacon to be published last week, but please remember that we are a twice monthly publication, not a every other week newspaper. This model works best right now, but we also know that the demand for the positive news coverage that The Beacon provides to the community calls for more frequent publication. This is something that our executive council is debating at length and if it weren’t for the economy – we would be publishing weekly now. All things in due time as

they say. We do appreciate the many positive comments from our readers and the community at large – this feedback provides the encouragement we need to continue moving forward in a sluggish economy. But we particularly want to thank our base of advertisers because without them we would not be here – so it is to them that we say “thanks!” Please support these local businesses and organizations that help bring you The Beacon. We can all help each other through these challenging times – there is enough for everyone needs to be the mantra of the day.

The Coshocton County Beacon • July 15, 2009

“History” from cover year with about 40 of those tractors attending the show from Coshocton County and other parts of Ohio. Overall, the show boasted nearly 100 tractors of all colors and vintages, from those sporting beautiful green, red, yellow or orange paint to the familiar “cha-boom” sound of the hit ‘n miss steam engines. There was even a trailer of restored child size tractors. Shroyer remarked that the tractor was probably one of the most significant things to happen to farming in the last 100 years because it allowed farmers to replace the horse. “The tractor was a lot less work – no rest or feed was needed like with horses – the tractor just needed fuel. We do need young people to get involved or this will be a dying breed – we’d like to see our young kids with a wrench in their hands instead of playing videogames or watching television”, said Shroyer. Our group meets the second Sunday of each month at Tractor Supply or anyone interested in joining

the club can contact me at 740-545-7165. The weekend’s activities included a skillet throw by the ladies – it was apparent by the throwing that not many of these ladies actually practiced this at home thank goodness! – but the skillet was aluminum and a strong wind made the distances somewhat suspect. A safety demonstration coordinated by Jim Childress was held with the cooperation of the Coshocton City Fire Department – showing onlookers what could happen if someone got caught under a bush hog. The fire department volunteers also demonstrated how they could use inflatable cushions to raise a tractor or piece of equipment off of a victim. Childress reinforced that you should never raise anything from a victim without the emergency squad being on hand to provide immediate first aid and emergency care. In addition to homemade ice cream, grilled corn on the cob, the ladies of the club prepared

sandwiches and the fixin’s for the weekend. A church service was held on Sunday morning and the weekend’s festivities concluded with a grand parade down Main Street in Coshocton. Tractor pulls, tractor balancing and corn hole provided more than enough entertainment for the weekend. Andy Prouty, pulling a 16 HP Cub Cadet, said about the tractor pulling, “The camaraderie of the guys and the competition along with the friendship is what makes this fun. As far as winning, it’s about being lucky sometimes!” Bob Miller, who hails from Frazeysburg, had a 1922 fifteen horsepower Reid oil field engine – which was a pumping engine. Miller said, “This engine pumped nine different oil wells at one time – they used lines extending through the woods and had a turntable type of assembly to make it work. I spent six years restoring this machine and had it six years before that . . . John Shaw got me interested in this. He’s an old tractor buff and he helped me restore it.

Conesville Barbershop Show performers and dates set

The Conesville Village Council has announced the date and performers for their annual Barbershop Show. The show will be held at River View High School on Saturday, August 29 at 6 pm. A baked chicken or Salisbury steak dinner will be from 4 pm to 6 pm prior to the show. Tickets for the dinner and show are $10 per person for adults and children. Tickets for the show only for adults are $8 per person while tickets for the show only for children are $3. Performers for the evening will be Park Avenue, hailing from Columbus, Cadillac Jack from Cincinnati and The Singing Buckeyes from Columbus. Cadillac Jack is a quartet and was named the 2008 JAD quartet champions. Park Avenue promises to be an entertaining a cappella

quartet that was formed in January 2000. The quartet won the prestigious Johnny Appleseed District Championship in October of 2000. Park Avenue uses four part harmony, musical excellence and superior comedic entertainment to add that something extra to their performances. A returning favorite from last year will be The Singing Buckeyes – currently performing Frank Sinatra music, inspirational tunes and more. The Singing Buckeyes do more than sing well; they combine character, choreography and harmony to put the audience over the top. The Buckeyes most recent package includes a little “Knight” music. The chorus will entertain the audience with its visions of swords and glory. Tickets may be purchased at Sprint

The Frontier Power Company, A Touchstone Energy® Cooperative based in Coshocton, set a new type of electric pole while building new line along State Route 83 South in Coshocton County. Ductile Iron Poles were purchased locally from McWane Poles and manufactured by Clow Water Systems of Coshocton. Clow, a division of McWane, produces McWane’s ductile iron distribution poles. The new poles are manufactured from recycled materials and are 100% recyclable themselves. Ductile Iron Poles are very durable because they are highly corrosion resistant resulting in an extended service life. They have consistent strength and are not affected by rot, insects, freezing weather or animal invasion. Frontier Power is excited to be using a “green” product and looks forward to the benefits and advantages of having Ductile Iron Poles. General Manager Steven K. Nelson states “We are happy to be supporting a local business by purchasing products made at Clow Water Systems of Coshocton”.

Ruby said, “I decided that I wanted to be part of the Youth Choir when I heard them perform at the state fair when I was young. Mr. Snyder gave me that

opportunity. Speaking of the Cardinal Chorale Ruby said, “It has been more than I hoped for – there are great friends and great musicality in the group. There’s also lots of energy and we have lots of fun. Kaitlin’s mom, Stephanie Ruby, said of the experience, “It has been wonderful – one of the all time great experiences – she has made some

of the best friends and had some memorable times. It’s been a huge help for her to meet people and that has helped her with college – being organized and with time management. From a parent’s standpoint – it’s been delightful!” The Cardinal Chorale is under the direction of Mr. Charles R. Snyder.

Bible earns Eagle Scout

Anthony Bible, son of Tony and Patti Bible, was awarded with the highest honor in scouting during an Eagle Scout Court of Honor on Saturday, July 4 at the Warsaw United Methodist Church. Surrounded by family, friends, scouts and troop leaders, Bible, a member of Boy Scout Troop 438, said about the honor, “It makes me feel wonderful – it’s been so many years of hard work and dedication. I want to thank my family, friends, troop mates and God, of course, for this honor”. When asked about his quest for Eagle Scout, Bible responded, “The first time I walked into the scout

store and saw the Eagle badges, I knew I wanted to be an Eagle Scout. I would also like to thank my scout masters, Danny Everhart and Rick Mills for pushing me through. For his Eagle Scout project, Bible designed and constructed three large welcome / direction signs for River View Junior and Senior high schools. The process included design work, priming and painting, constructing and installation of the three new signs. Bible managed 13 volunteers and recorded upwards of 250 man hours in completing the project. Bible expressed his appreciation to Jim Border, Coshocton Lumber Com-

pany, Auer Ace Hardware, Fisher Decorating Company and the Warsaw Lions Club. One of Bible’s fellow scouts, Travis Soules, said about Bible, “He has a strong character that will not be shaken”. Bible awarded a mentoring pin to Danny Everhart, saying, “This man helped lead me and let us learn on our own”. Parents Patti and Tony said about their son, “His greatest attribute is his character. At no time did we think he would give up – we’re very proud of him – from an early stage he had his eye on this. He had wonderful scout leaders and a great group of kids – a good all around situation. The leaders really came through and helped these boys be all they can be. This is one of his greatest achievements”. Scoutmasters Rick Mills and Danny Everhart said about Bible, “Anthony has always been a great leader for us – a take charge kind of guy. He was our senior patrol leader – we could just let him take over . . . and the rest of the troop would follow. He fit right in from real early on (coming from another scout troop) he’s a special boy – and did everything we asked him to do. He’s going to go far in life”.

Forney honored as Eagle Scout Tuesday July 7th, 2009 West Lafayette Troop 419 Scoutmaster, Brian Lanzer, presented Scouting’s highest honor to 17 year old Kyle Forney. Kyle is the son of Scott and Veronica Forney and brother to Brandon Forney. A 2009 graduate of Ridgewood High School, he will be majoring in chemistry at Purdue University this fall. The ceremony was held under the shelter at the West Lafayette branch library and was attended by West Lafayette Mayor Jack & Christie Patterson, Coshocton Library Director Eric Taggert, Children’s Librarian Diane Jones, Coshocton Community Choir Director Charles R. Snyder, and West Lafayette Chamber of Commerce and Rotary members Ed & Susan Chapdelain. During the ceremony Kyle was also presented with a certificate of appreciation from Andrea Schweitzer the West Lafayette Library Branch Manager.

Frank, member of Boy Scout Troop 438 and son of Peggy and Brent Wyler, was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout during a ceremony held at the Sacred Heart Church on Sunday, July 12. Kelly King served as master of ceremonies and Scoutmas-

ter Danny Everhart stated, “Your achievement will follow you all throughout your life”. Scoutmaster Rick Mills said, “Andrew has been a joy to have in the troop and he will always have a piece of himself at the Muskingum Valley Scout Reservation –

having lost at least two pair of glasses in the lake!” Zach Mills said of his friend, “He is a great friend; there is no one more deserving of this award”. Frank chose to renovate and restore the Our Lady of Lourdes cemetery in rural Coshocton County for his Eagle Scout project. Father Bill Hritsko said of Frank, “Someone of this generation has remembered the past and we are grateful for that”. Kelly King, committee chair for Troop 438, commented, “I’m just so very proud of him – to watch him grow and develop into the fine young man he is. He is a good representation of the troop”. Frank replied when asked why he chose the cemetery for his project, “I wanted to do something with my church – the cemetery

was in ruins – I wanted to change this”. Asked how he felt about the rank of Eagle Scout, he said, “It’s great. I can’t even describe the feelings. It’s taken a long time – I’m very proud”. Mother Peggy said, “It’s just a very proud moment for our family – he’s learned a lot from his scoutmasters. It’s taught him about life and serving the community”. Father Brent stated, “I’m just real proud that he accomplished this goal – and watching him grow – we’ve had a lot of fun at the scout camp. He has made a lot of friendships and has wonderful scouting memories. It’s been a terrific experience – and he has learned to know many new people, which has given him a lot of confidence. We’re just very proud of him!”

it badges, serve as a leader in his troop, and complete a major community service project. For his project Kyle raised funds for, built, and installed five benches around the perimeter of the West Lafayette Branch Library’s outdoor reading shelter. These benches add much needed additional seating for all of the many programs and community functions held at the shelter. This project and others like them would not be possible without the financial support of many of our area’s civic organizations. The West Lafay-

ette Lions Club, Friends of the Coshocton Public Library, West Lafayette Baptist Women’s Missions, Janusian Club, West Lafayette Rotary Club, West Lafayette Chamber of Commerce, West Lafayette Rotary Club and the Pandorian Club all contributed money for this project. These groups were so generous that with the left over monies and some additional funds from the Friends of the Library group Ms. Schweitzer was able to purchase two bistro sets to compliment the outdoor shelter area.

4-H students “Walk the Plank” at Camp Ohio

Ahoy maties! 4-H members in Coshocton County had their 4-H Junior Camp at 4-H Camp Ohio from Sunday, July 5 through Thursday, July 9. Their theme this year was “A Pirate’s Life for Me” and all camp activities were centered around pirates. At the beginning of the week, the students made their own code of conduct, just like pirates would have aboard ship. All pirates know you must be loyal to your fellow pirates, just as the kids learned how to be loyal to their peers, counselors, and their community. In order to have a wellrun ship, even pirates had to have discipline, so the kids learned about the importance of discipline for a well-run camp and community.

“These kids get to make decisions on their own and learn skills they will use for the rest of their lives,” said Camp Director, Sarah Jane Lindsey, “They have the opportunity for public speaking, and this is the first time away from home for most of these kids. They get to meet kids from other areas and have fun.” Each group had their own pirate name and decorated their cabins in pirate attire. The campground reflected this theme as well with each place being named after a part of a ship. Of course, the restroom was the poop deck. During the day, after flag raising and breakfast, the students had a variety of activities to choose from such as archery, line dancing, crafts,

wildlife run, and many more. Each student was responsible for choosing an activity and showing up on time. Each night, different activities were planned. One evening, students enjoyed “Shiver Me Timbers!” where they had to melt ice in their hands, fought a one-eyed pirate war, had a rousing game of sword-fighting with pretzel sticks, and had to eat a doughnut off a wire suspended in air. “I like going to Campfire at night and seeing the funny skits,” said Tara Salmans, 4-H student, “I’m really going to miss it when I leave.” Campfire was an activity where counselors developed a skit around different themes each night. Of course, each theme was pirate-related.

They also learned hilarious pirate jokes such as “What is a pirate’s favorite cookie? – Chips Ahoy!” and “How much does it cost for a pirate to have his ear pierced? – A Buccaneer!” Although all the students had fun with the different activities, the one thing they will always remember about this week are the friendships they made that will last a lifetime. “We’re really going to miss each other,” said Kaitlin Milligan, 4-H student, “We’ve become really good friends this week.” This year, the Camp featured 11 staff members, 31 counselors, and over 160 4-H’ers.

When Kenzie Manns noticed that camp counselors at Camp Ohio had to use their own money to buy bags of ice for their group, she decided to raise money to buy the camp an ice machine. Last March, Kenzie started sending letters to counties in Ohio who use the camp and also to local businesses in Coshocton asking for donations for the new ice machine. All donations were tax deductible and Kenzie said she was really pleased with the response she received from the community.

“A warm, secure and healthy choice for your life’s changes”


Roscoe Village starts new Independence Day tradition Roscoe Village is starting a new tradition for Independence Day this year. An annual kids parade through Roscoe Village Main Street commenced on July 4th at 11:30 a.m. Almost 90 kids from Coshocton County came to the event and had decorated their bikes in patriotic fashion. By 11:15, the whole area in front of the Information Center was a sea of red, white and blue. “I’m really excited about the parade,” said Mykahia Alverson, 10 of Coshocton, “I like seeing everyone else’s bikes.” The kids started gathering in front of the Information Center at around 10 a.m. that morning. At 11:30, the ten-minute parade down Main Street Roscoe Village started with the playing of the National Anthem and an

American flag leading the way. All business owners came out to watch the parade, waving an American flag. The kids rode down to the staging area where they received goody bags filled with toys and candy, and also a free lunch consisting of hot dogs and lemonade courtesy of the Warehouse Restaurant. A brand new bike was also given away by Auer Ace Hardware. “For the first year, I think it was great,” said Mickey Hammond, owner of Baby of Mine, “Hopefully next year, we can add a pep band or something like that and it will be even better.” The event was sponsored by the Roscoe Village Business Association and was organized by Lynette Wright.

Abby, 6, and Katie, 4, of Coshocton wait patiently on their bikes for the Independence Day parade to begin at Roscoe Village. The two girls always dress alike when going to church or other social events. Grandma says they could hardly sleep the night before because they were so excited.

commented, “This event is great for Hospice, it’s fantastic with Twisted Image Cycle, remembering Sam Rivera and providing something for people to do here in Coshocton County. This event brings money to our community with food purchases, fuel, hotel stays, etc. The Memorial Fest has generated over $32,000 for Hospice over

the years and we are looking at some expected cuts with Medicaid and Medicare for our program. Fund raisers like this are being used for operations versus some of the things we could do in the past. When I look around and see that all of these people have put their time into this without any help from us – it’s just amazing”. The event was

co-chaired this year by Mickey Smith of Twisted Image Cycle and Mike Parks. Parks stated, “I would like to recognize all the committee members and everyone that donated their time, money and property – especially Agents Realty and all the local merchants who have helped make this possible”. Even with the economy the way it is – we’ve had a lot of support – we just want to make this bigger and better each year!” With patrons coming from Tennessee and bands from New York, along with local bands SOL and Sixth Degree, who donated their time and talent, the parking lot at Agents Realty & Auction Service along with Fortune’s Boot Shop, resonated with the sounds of choppers, Harley Davidson’s and many other brands of bikes. Dozens of motorcycle enthusiasts like Debbie and Ron Hardesty gave up their Saturday to help the Memorial Fest. As they said, “Hospice is a good cause – it’s a great fund-raiser – everyone has been touched by Hospice. It’s just great to do something good for people”.

Letter from Coshocton Canal Festival Queen Emily Els Since being crowned Coshocton Canal Festival Queen, I have had the opportunity to represent Coshocton all over Ohio at 22 festivals, Coshocton County Fair, and many local parades and events. In addition, several members of my court and I have visited residents at the Coshocton Health and Rehabilitation Center and participated in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake.

I’m looking forward to this year’s Canal Festival. I have a lot of pride in my community, and I’m hoping this will be a celebration that many will come home for, a reunion and re-acquainting with friends, whether they live across the country or across the street. I have a lot more traveling to do between now and August when my reign ends, but I truly have found “There’s no place like home.”

In researching the era of my costume for judging in the Canal Festival Queen Contest, I discovered a newspaper article in the Coshocton Public Library’s historical archives announcing the grand opening of the magnificent Sixth Street Theater in Coshocton. It was a state-of-theart facility. Upon further research, I learned that the first play to open at the theater was “The Wizard of Oz.” I was so excited and I learned a great deal about the first “Oz” production. One interesting tidbit was that the original story was about Dorothy and her cow, not Toto. In my story for the contest, I played the part of Anna Laughlin, the 17-year-old actress who played Dorothy, and told of my travels and ended my story with “There’s no place like home.”

I would like to invite all past Coshocton Canal Festival Queens and their court to join us for this year’s Canal Festival activities. We are planning some fun events.

Our hope is it will decrease the number of times we will have to use an invasive catheter.

Coshocton Hospital receives grant for the purchase of bladder scanner Coshocton Hospital recently received a grant from the Ohio Hospital Association Insurance Solutions. The grant in the amount of $5000 is to be used in safety and risk management programs that deal with reducing hospital acquired infections. The grant money was used by Coshocton Hospital to purchase a bladder scanner. The scanner will be used primarily in the ECF, but it will also be used in various ways throughout the hospital. The main goal of the scanner is to help decrease the number of urinary cath-

“Isleta Kids” has first Habitat for Humanity builds new reunion home for family

On Sunday, June 28, the “Isleta Kids” met at the home of Don Lawrence in West Lafayette, Ohio for their first reunion. The “Isleta Kids” consisted of all children who grew up in or around Isleta some time ago. The event started at 1 p.m. and was initially coordinated by Cheryl Thomas Stevenson. “I’ve been thinking about this for a long time,” said Stevenson, “so I contacted people who were from Isleta and we started contacting others through word of mouth last fall. We formed a committee, who have all been so helpful, and started planning in January. Everyone really put their best foot forward. It’s so hard to stay in contact with everyone and this makes it happen.” Ninety – three people came to the reunion with fifty – five being from Isleta. The others were from surrounding areas. People came from all over the country to attend the reunion from states such as Florida, California, New

York, Arkansas, Virginia, and of course, Ohio. During the reunion, there was a slideshow presentation of old photographs. There were plenty of scrapbooks and old news articles to browse through as well, containing images of times gone by. A raffle was also conducting and the lucky winners were able to choose “Isleta Kids” t-shirts and hats as souvenirs of the event. There was also a presentation on Isleta and the surrounding areas. At the end of the reunion, each of the “Isleta Kids” gave a testimony on how Isleta has changed since they were younger. “I’m glad it all came together like this,” said Barbara Rehard Dedics, committee member, “It’s really turned out nice.” Schumaker Farms catered the event at $15 a person with both lunch and dinner included. The meal included pork, chicken, potatoes, beans, fruit and dessert.

On Monday, June 29, Habitat for Humanity started ground-breaking work on a new home for Rachel Gross, of Coshocton, and her family. The event started at 1 p.m. with a prayer asking God to bless the new home as well as the many workers who will be present on the construction site for months to come. After Psalms were read and the new family was introduced, local county commissioners, Gross, and Sue Hardesty, president of Habitat for Humanity, broke ground. In order to own the home, Gross and her family had to go through a screening process and meet three criteria. Applicants must have a need for a home in their lives. They cannot be previous homeowners.

They also must have a willingness to partner with the construction of their new home. Gross and her family will be working a certain number of hours a week to help build the house, and the family also needs to be able to pay back the mortgage to Habitat for Humanity. “I can’t wait to live in this area so the kids can have a nice neighborhood to play in,” said Rachel Gross, new homeowner, “We live on Chestnut Street, so they really don’t have that opportunity now.” The Coshocton County Commissioners supported funds for the building as well as many local businesses. The students at the Coshocton County Career Center will also be helping on construction. They hope

to have the house completed by spring of 2010. “We are so happy to be partnering with the Career Center again for this project,” said Sue Hardesty, “The students at the Career Center have built about five houses for Habitat for

Humanity in the past. One year, they even came out to help during their Christmas break.” The new house will be located on South Eleventh Street in Coshocton.

The Central Ohio Technical College offered an emergency medical class to high school students on Monday, June 15 through Friday, June 19. On the last day of class, students took what they had learned in class to a hands-on experience when they responded to a mock car crash. Under the instruction of Connie Long, the students treated the “victims” of the crash with the skills they had learned in class. Here, an “unresponsive” patient is given shock treatment.

“victims” ranged from age seven to seventeen and had been involved in a bus and drunk driving crash. The students were able to use what they had learned that week in class to treat the “victims” and gain some hands-on experience. These were students who are interested in going into the emergency medical field or health profession after high school. After completing the class, they were certified in first aid, CPR, and Automated Ex-

ternal Defibulator (AED). “We provide workshops that are very handson. We want them to be excited about learning,” said Suzanne Bressoud, Communication Coordinator at the Newark campus, “This experience gives these students an idea of what it’s really going to be like if they want to go into the health profession.” In The Artist’s eCanvas, taught by Michael Coronado, students learned how to manipulate photos

by using different tools on the computer. They started with learning the basics of how to use a camera and take simple pictures, and then built on those techniques to create beautiful art. By the end of the week, they were learning about how to draw with light and creating web portfolios. “I feel the College Aspire program is important,” said Troy Balderson, Ohio State representative who came to visit the campus, “They have fun and they’re still learning. The students aren’t stuck in an eight-

hour classroom and that keeps them focused more on learning. They have the opportunity to see what other jobs are out there.” College Aspire is a free program for high school students 15 – 18 years old, with another program for students 11 – 14. The staff is dedicated to giving these students a quality learning experience at COTC and have already started planning for next year’s programs. To learn more about the program, visit their web site at www.cotc. edu.
