hot,” declared Sharon Osborne, but the truth is, all three are hot when their voices combine on stage. Straight from a fourth place finish in the 2009America’s Got Talent stage to the outdoor stage for a spectacular climax to Coshocton’s 200th birthday celebration: The Texas Tenors. Don’t be fooled by their somber black suits and cowboy hats. The Texas Tenors take their music seriously but never themselves. On a whim, Marcus Collins, JC Fisher and John Hagen, three friends, decided to audition in Houston, Texas and won the hearts of millions of fans, which landed them in the finals of AGT and the highest ranking of vocal groups in the history of the show. The Texas Tenors concert is a gift of the Towne Centre Association to the Coshocton community. All are invited to bring their lawn chairs to the court square and relax as the night air is filled effortlessly with a musical ride from West Virginia to Italy to New York City, while the trio pausing between genres to tell stories and smile for pictures. The Texas Tenors, Marcus, John and JC promise a performance and some unexpected surprises fitting the 200th birthday celebration of Coshocton.

God looked around his garden, and he found an empty place, He looked down on earth, and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you, and lifted you to rest, God’s garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. He knew you were suffering, He knew that you were in pain, He knew that you would never get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb, So he closed your weary eyelids, and whispered peace be thine It broke my heart to lose you, but you didn’t go alone. For part of me went with you the day God called you home

The Coshocton Rotary Club has donated $1,000 to First Step Family Violence Prevention. Each year, the club’s Sergeant-at-Arms, also known as the “Gearjammer,” determines a local charity where a portion of all fines collected will be donated. During the weekly meeting, the Gearjammer assigns $1 files to various members for a variety of “offenses,” such as wearing a certain color, failing to help with a club project, etc. It is all in good fun. The Rotary 2010-2011 year ended on June 30, and retiring Gearjammer Heather Klesch Rainwater designated that First Step would be the recipient of one-third of fines she collected throughout the year. Another third of the money goes to club projects, while the remaining third is put into a drawing for club members. The Coshocton Rotary Club was founded in 1918 and currently has approximately 70 members. More information about the club is available at

The Park National Bank and its associates have stepped forward together with a $1 million dollar commitment to support the Next Generation Challenge Scholarship Campaign. Through the generosity of Granville philanthropists J. Gilbert and Louella H. Reese, the Next Generation Challenge will match dollar-for-dollar all gifts and multi-year pledges up to $10 million made before June 30, 2012, to raise endowed funds to support scholarships benefiting students attending The Ohio State University at Newark and Central Ohio Technical College in perpetuity. Park National Chairman C. Daniel DeLawder and President David L. Trautman announced the gift during a monthly all-associate meeting at Newark’s Midland Theatre. “Generations of Park National associates have instilled in our organization’s culture a sense of community responsibility. We sincerely believe in sharing resources, investing in others, and frankly, just doing the right thing,” DeLawder said. “We are proud to be a part of this extraordinary scholarship campaign because we fully appreciate the value of the education our local campus provides.” Trautman said, “We hope our commitment inspires other local professionals and groups to seize this special opportunity and pay-it-forward in the same kind of way.” The endowed scholarship that will result from the magnanimous support of the associates and the bank will be established to recognize long-time Park National Bank leader William T. McConnell and his late wife, Jane C. McConnell. Jane dedicated much of her life to serving COTC and was an emeritus trustee of the college. Mr. McConnell currently serves as chairman of the Next Generation Challenge Campaign. William McConnell was recognized as the 2010 Pioneer in Banking presented by the Ohio Bankers League. He joined Park National Bank in 1960, was named its president in 1979, and chairman in 1993. He served as CEO from 1983 to 1999. McConnell was elected chairman and CEO of the Park National Corporation in 1994 and continues to serve Park as chairman of the executive committee. “I thank The Park National Bank and its associates for this wonderfully generous gift,” said Ohio State Newark Dean and Director William L. MacDonald, Ph.D. “Park National is to be commended for its long history of supporting the local community.” In 1966, under the leadership of John W. Alford, chairman, The Park National Bank led the initial fundraising campaign to construct the campus’s first building, Founders Hall, with the largest single gift of $50,000.

In just a few weeks, the 1961 Sesquicentennial Time Capsule will be unearthed and the contents will be removed, inventoried, and put on display at the Coshocton County Court Square for the public to view on Saturday, Aug. 20 from 1 – 7 p.m. That afternoon, the committee invites the citizens of Coshocton County to being items which may be of interest to the public 50 years from now, to be deposited in the new time capsule. There will also be a scroll of paper for signatures of citizens who wish for their names to be viewed when the capsule is opened in 2061. In 1961, people were charged 25 cents. This time, it’s free! The Bicentennial Committee emphasizes that items must not exceed 12”x12”x2” and must be current, not historical. Pictures (persons/ location identified) and documents should be laminated or sealed in zip lock bags. They ask that businesses provide a document or publication from their workplace describing the business, its location, naming its owners, managers, and perhaps its personnel, the history of the business and any other points of interest.

Dr. Danielle Erwin has joined Family Eye Care with her father, Dr. David Erwin, at 535 Chestnut St. She is a native of Coshocton and graduated from Coshocton High School in 2003. Danielle attended the University of Cincinnati, where she graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences. She was a member of the women’s track and field team at the University of Cincinnati. Dr. Danielle Erwin then graduated from The Ohio State University College of Optometry in 2011, where she had extensive training at the Chillicothe VA Hospital and a specialty ophthalmology practice in Alliance, OH. “I am excited to be back in my home town to provide eye care to people of all ages,” said Dr. Danielle Erwin. “And to be able to carry on the tradition of quality my family created is exciting.”

Dr. Danielle has a vast array of training. She particularly enjoys fitting all modes of contact lenses and the therapeutic treatment of all eye diseases. Her experience of working in medical eye clinics has made her comfortable in managing eye diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and also in co-managing laser vision correction. She is looking forward to becoming an active member of the community. “It has been a dream come true for my daughter to join the practice with me,” said Dr. David Erwin. “In addition, this allows our practice to grow to help more patients…and that is a great thing for the community.” Family Eye Care originated in 1978 when Dr. David Erwin, also a native of Coshocton, opened a solo practice. A wide variety of services are offered, which include specialty contact lens fits, assessments of ocular disease, InfantSEE exams, and eye exams for all ages. They have new technology that takes photos of the retina to monitor disease as well as an OCT instrument to detect and monitor glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. In addition, they perform Realeyes presentations where the doctor and staff visit local elementary schools to educate them on vision. Family Eye Care is gladly accepting new patients. Call in to set up an appointment at 622-2270.

History comes to life in Coshocton






For five magical nights, Coshocton County had the rare opportunity to experience the incredible entertainment and educational experience of Ohio Chautauqua. Each night under the big red tent at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds, one of five performers gave an unforgettable presentation of five different historic people who had an impact on the Civil War. Although the weather was uncomfortably warm that week, each night, there was hardly an empty seat under the tent as people from all over Ohio gathered to hear the stories of the infamous Harriet Tubman, an Underground Railroad conductor and runaway slave; and Abraham Lincoln, the president who fought to preserve the Union; as well as some lesser-known characters such as Mary Edwards Walker, the first female Civil War surgeon and the only woman to win the Congressional Medal of Honor; Major Martin Delany, a physician, journalist, and the highest-ranking AfricanAmerican officer in the Civil War; and Mary Chestnut, the wife of a Confederate politician who kept a diary during the war. “We want to have some people that you may have never heard of before,” said State-wide Ohio Chautauqua coordinator Fran Tiburzio, “We have found that they have some of the most fascinating stories because everybody already knows the Abraham Lincoln stories. The idea is you toss in a Mary Edwards Walker, or a Mary

Chestnut or a Martin Delany and then you get to learn about some part of history that you’ve never heard about.” During the first evening performance on Tuesday, July 19, the audience had the chance to meet all of the characters that would be portrayed during the week. Each character told a little about themselves and what they would be speaking of during their presentation. Then, as the sun began to sink and a cool breeze began to blow through the tent, the audience had the pleasure of meeting Harriet Tubman. Harriet Tubman: Escaped slave and Union spy

It comes as no surprise that Harriet Tubman entered the stage singing a spiritual as she was greeted with applause from the audience. Ilene Evans, who portrays Harriet Tubman, immediately captivated her audience with her strong stage presence and especially with her many stories of Tubman’s enslavement and freedom from her slavery. In addition to her touching stories, Evans also included humor in her presentation, especially when she told about tripping over her own skirts and asking members of the audience to write asking for more bloomers to make her traveling easier. However, when going through all of her troubles, Harriet Tubman always stressed that you need to keep a song in your heart. She incorporated many spirituals into her presentation such as “John Brown’s Body”, the tune later used for “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”; “Hush, Somebody’s Calling

My Name”; “There is a Balm in Gilead”, just to name a few. Ilene brought the audience to near tears as she recounted the Second Battle of Fort Wagner near Charleston, SC. Kneeling on the wooden stage, she wept for the brave men in the all-black 54th regiment who had fallen during the battle, including their white colonel who was a fighting abolitionist, Robert Gould Shaw. After the presentation and a rousing standing ovation from the audience, Ilene received a special gift from an audience member that she will no doubt remember for the rest of her life. Rolland Goodwin, an 8-year-old boy, wanted to tell Harriet Tubman that he loved her and wanted to give her a big hug. With tears in her eyes, she motioned for Rolland to come forward and the two of them shared a hug. “She’s really nice and I love her so much,” said Rolland, “and I’m so happy that I could be here.” Rolland has also read many books about Harriet Tubman. “The first one I read and I just couldn’t stop reading about her.” After her performance, people from the audience were able to meet Harriet Tubman personally and ask additional questions. Wildwood and Friends provided music that evening before Ilene’s presentation from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. Harriet Tubman died of natural causes in 1913 in New York. Major Martin Delany: The first AfricanAmerican major in the Civil War

The year is 1876, the United State’s Centennial, and Major Martin Delany was trying to define liberty for newly-freed slaves. Through Delany’s many trials, he had been run out of town and threatened after giving a speech, dismissed from Harvard Medical School because of his race, and forcibly removed from his seat as a judge. Delany, portrayed by Jim Armstead, graduated from Jefferson College as a doctor and began an apprenticeship with a Pittsburg physician, soon afterwards opening a successful medical practice. In 1843, Delany began publishing “The Mystery” newspaper and later joined forces with Frederick Douglas in

Although the weather was well above 90 degrees with high humidity, Dianne Moran took the stage as Mary Chestnut, wife of a confederate politician, dressed in a long hoop skirt, longsleeved, collared shirt, and a heavy silk jacket. But the oppressive heat didn’t affect Moran’s performance. “When we’re waiting to go on and we’re outside of the tent, we’re dying,” said Moran about the heat, “But when we get on, it goes away very much so because you’re so focused on your performance. It goes away, until you finish.” Just as her predecessors had the nights before, Moran enthralled her audience and made them feel as if they were in her own home, although she was ashamed that she had nothing to offer them since the “Yanks” had come and taken all of her lovely things. Moran portrayed Chestnut with such an intensity that, although she claimed to be an abolitionist but certainly was not and

took pleasure in talking about others behind their backs, the audience felt sympathy for her, especially when she talked of the many deaths of both confederate and union soldiers and how she wished the war would end. Chestnut kept detailed diaries during the war and the one thing she was afraid of was that the war would end the southern way of life, which it had. After the war, most of her slaves stayed with the family and one was equal partners with her in an egg and dairy business. But the way of life for Mary had changed and, although she claimed to be an abolitionist, she never was able to accept the change. After her performance, Moran confessed that she didn’t really like Mary, although she did identify with her a little after Mary’s husband’s death when she wore his old trousers and straw hat to clear away her garden and people called her crazy. She told the audience that this instance

publishing “The Star”. They worked together for 18 months until finally, disagreements between Delany and Douglas drove them apart. Armstead told the story of how Delany entered Harvard Medical School to 1849 to further his medical training. After only three weeks, his fellow white peers decided that he and two other black students were degrading the education and the Harvard Medical School by being fellow students there. Delany was dismissed by the dean. Delany believed that if African Americans were to live to be equals, they would need to return to their homeland in Africa, and in 1859, he began an 18-month exploration of the Niger River Delta. In 1860, he was invited to attend a symposium in London and was introduced by Prince Albert. Five white American men immediately left, but one stayed just so he could see Delany “make a fool of himself”. However, the American was greatly disappointed as Delany’s speech was well-accepted. He was the first American to be inducted into the Royal Explores Club and resided in England for five years. When war broke out in the United States, Delany returned and joined the military as a recruiting officer. He received $2 per person he recruited. In February of 1865, after speaking with President Lincoln about having an all-black corps led by African-American officers, Delany became a major of the 52nd US Colored Troops Regiment. Jean Benning from Lebanon, Ohio attended the performance and said she enjoyed, “What I perceive as accuracy and all the facts and the character and the research, not just an entertainment, but, I was a history teacher, so I appreciate the accuracy. We were here last night and we intend to be here tomorrow night. So, I just love it. We had a Chautauqua in Lebanon, I think three years ago, so we knew about the concept, and one of my best friends lives here in Coshocton and she gave me the information, so we came. And I think anybody who has missed it is an idiot because it’s wonderful entertainment as well as education and it’s free!” Her friend, Jean Westfall, commented, “This is my first Chautauqua experience, last night and tonight, and this was a character that I knew nothing about, so it was interesting to simply learn about somebody. I think they’re awesome and incredible. I’ll probably be back every night this week. It’s captivating and exciting and it’s neat to be a part of that kind of experience.” Major Martin Delany died in 1884 of pneumonia.

made Mary feel more real and human to her and she realized that these people who lived so long ago were really no different than we are today. She also identified with Mary through her desire to have children, even though she couldn’t have any. Although Diane has children of her own, she could understand Mary’s frustration at not having children. “She, despite all of her running around and having parties, she wanted more than anything to have a child and evidently she couldn’t and she grew up in a family where there were a lot of cousins in the household. That’s the way her life was geared, toward having children. She couldn’t. So, that must have been a real hurt for her, so that drew me to her. I have children, but I could understand where she was coming from.” When it came time for questions, one man in the audience asked Mary a question to which she 1961 replied, “Sir, I have been standing up here for July 27th, 1961 Girl Scout camp week came to a close as over the last half hour trying to explain that to you.” 60 girls sadly packed up their bags and left the The man was R.C.

July 30th, 1981 A Coshocton County couple were out of their home when their living room caught fire. Coshocton firefighters responded to the scene quickly and to their surprise, found a small Toy Pomeranian dog in the basement, shivering with fright. Luckily, no one was harmed during the fire, and the little dog was visibly shaken with a little smoke inhalation, but other than that, unharmed. The quickthinking of the Coshocton firemen saved the little dog’s life. All information was obtained from microfilm of the Coshocton Tribune at the Coshocton County Library.

Mary Edwards Walker: First female Civil War surgeon

The only woman to ever have been given the Congressional Medal of Honor and the first Civil War female surgeon took the Chautauqua stage Friday night and spoke passionately about stories from her life as well as her belief for equality among men and women. But above everything else, she spoke of the number one killer of soldiers during the Civil War, which came not from the bullets, but from disease, illness, and unsanitary conditions. Debra Conner, who portrayed Mary Edwards Walker, gave a heart-rending performance Friday night under the tent. By the end of her presentation, many audience members were in tears as she spoke of the battle of Kennesaw Mountain in the winter of 1862 where most of the Ohio 52nd regiment was killed, and The Battle Hymn of the Republic was softly played in the background as she told her story. Conner as Mary Edwards Walker also explained that 2/3 of the soldiers who died in the war didn’t die in battle, but from illness caused by dirty water and improper waste disposal. Putting on her ‘bloodied’ apron, she pulled from her medical bag what looked like a butcher’s knife as she explained that amputation saved a lot of the soldier’s lives, although those who suffered from amputated limbs still had the chance of dying from disease. Finally, after years as working as a volunteer only because she was a woman, in 1864, Mary Edwards Walker was finally recognized as a real surgeon and was appointed to female surgeon of the United States Army by General George Thomas. However, not long afterwards, she was captured by the Confederate army and sent to prison in Richmond, VA where she spent four months of her life sleeping on straw and eating food infested with maggots. She left the prison weighing only 69 pounds. Walker ended her presentation by telling a story of a 17-year-old boy who fought for the Union in the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain. He was shot and fell behind enemy lines, but instead of killing him, the Confederates took care of him

The last night of Chautauqua featured “Honest Abe”, President Abraham Lincoln, portrayed by Richard Johnson. As the night before had been wrought with tears from the audience members, when President Lincoln took the stage, there was laughter in the audience as President Lincoln told many jokes. He explained that he enjoyed using humor as a way to help deal with the stress of this war. Johnson lit up the stage with his presence,

For those who missed Ohio Chautauqua really missed a chance to learn about history from scholars who had studied their characters for many months and in some cases, many years. Each night had a special magic in the air and the audience felt as if they had been transformed back in time and actually had a chance to meet these interesting people from the past. Each night, Habitat for Humanity had refreshments for donations and Boy Scout Troops 402 and 412 provided security at the tent. Ohio Chautauqua also had $5 tee-shirts available as well as brochures and other merchandise. Coshocton Village Inn and Suites housed the actors during their stay in Coshocton. The Park family from Kent, Ohio used to travel each night to see Ohio Chautauqua until they decided to take a week’s vacation, spending that week in the town where Ohio Chautauqua would be performing. They have been to about



four or five Chautauquas throughout the year. They go to all of the Youth and Adult workshops as well as all the evening performances. “This one was great,” said Amy Park, “The people of Coshocton are really good. The questions (during the performances) were fantastic. I have never seen workshops attended like this. For the kind of turnout you’ve had here in this heat and the rain. This is phenomenal. This is a good town.” The Ohio Chautauqua performers seemed to agree. The last night of the performances, they all took the stage one last time and told the audience how much they loved Coshocton and how they would never forget their time here. And we will never forget their time here as well and hope they can come back in the near future. (Photos taken by Mark Fortune)


Abraham Lincoln: preserved the union

telling the audience that most people thought President Lincoln was a homely man, some even saying he was ugly. He told the story, when asked by an audience member, that he had grown a beard on the request of a young girl who thought the beard would help the president win his upcoming election. Johnson closed his presentation with a few lines from the infamous Gettysburg Address and then stepped out of character, explaining to the audience that in past years while studying Lincoln, he had been impressed with his ambition and passion, but this time, he had been surprised by how many people did not like him, both Democrats and Republicans. But Lincoln didn’t have to worry about being disliked Saturday night. The audience loved him and he was awarded with a standing ovation.

and nursed him back to health. After the war was over, they became friends. Mary Edwards Walker was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor in 1865 by President Johnson, although she still received no pension for her service in the war. In 1917, the government decided that civilians should not be awarded such an honor and her medal was revoked. It wasn’t until 1977 when Jimmy Carter reinstated her medals. She remains to this day as the only woman and one of eight civilians to have been awarded this highest honor.

With nothing left at the fairgrounds but a few pieces of popcorn, the Ohio Chautauqua wrapped up the Coshocton performance on Saturday evening with a special appearance by President Abraham Lincoln himself. Despite the absence of the large red and white tent, the memories will continue to live on just as the stories of the characters portrayed during the week will endure – and have endured. The efforts of the Bicentennial Committee to secure the Ohio Chautauqua for our community deserve our appreciation. This signature event will lead the way into the Civil War encampment and Canal Festival parade later in August. Jan Myers, who headed up the event, said, “This has just been an incredible week.

Children in Coshocton County had the opportunity on Thursday, July 21 to write a letter to President Obama as part of the Ohio Chautauqua Youth Workshop events at the Coshocton Public Library. Richard Johnson, who portrayed President Lincoln during the Chautauqua evening performances, first told the kids a story about a certain little girl who once wrote a letter to President Lincoln during his candidacy. Her name was Grace and she was 11 years old at the time when she decided to write a letter asking the campaigning president to grow a beard. Johnson explained to the kids that the little 11 year old girl changed history because when we think of President Lincoln, we think of him with a beard, all because of that little girl. He explained to them that even children can change history. Johnson then read some letters that children had wrote to President Obama. One little boy wanted the president to give the whole planet free ice cream. Another had a great idea to convert sound into energy and replace electricity. He then read some letters from children to President Bush. One wanted all the soldiers in Iraq to come home so they could all go to Disneyland and another wanted the president to give everyone $10 for their birthday, saying that his birthday was in September. Staff at the library passed out paper and pencils for the kids to either write a letter or draw a picture for President Obama. Here are just a few of the letters from local Coshocton County kids and other kids from around the state who have traveled to Coshocton with their families to see Chautauqua: “Dear Mr. President. My name is Hannah Frank and I am 11 years old. I live in Coshocton, Ohio. I think you are doing a great job at being president. I would like to meet your daughters classified hotline 622-4ADS

has been very, very educational, and above all, very good. It’s been entertaining and we’ve learned so much about the Civil War by coming to this. The workshops were dynamic and the performances every evening were powerful. We’ve had a great time in the big tent all week. I’m just tickled to be a part of it.” Merrell also talked about the upcoming Civil War encampment at the airport, with a night firing of cannons by both Union and Confederate forces on Friday evening, Aug. 12. The Civil War encampment will have battle reenactments throughout the weekend and a ball on Saturday evening. The event will be held August 12, 13 and 14 at the Coshocton airport. That will be followed the next weekend by the Bicentennial themed Canal Festival parade on Saturday, August 20. Merrell said it will be a parade that you won’t want to miss. Melanie Bolender, COTC Campus Administrator, where several Teachers’ Institutes were held, said, “I’ve had the privilege of organizing, planning and then hosting the teacher’s institute in conjunction with the Ohio Chautauqua. It has been a booming success. We’re just so pleased. The teachers were happy; we’d love to do it again sometime soon.” Bolender said, “The teacher institutes began

at 1 p.m. each day with a lecture, we had a guest lecturer from Walsh University; a history teacher with a focus on the Civil War. The lecture was for an hour, then the public joined us, then we had more lectures and dinner where we talked more about the Civil War. Then they came over to the tent performances. It was a full day for them. “We’re hoping the teachers will be able to apply it in their classrooms. We had teachers from second grade clear up through senior high school. They’ll be applying it in different ways at different levels. It was a wide range. Coshocton has been fantastic as far as supporting all of these events.” Civil War era musical performances kicked off each evening’s event at 6:30 p.m. with Wildwood & Friends; Marty Rodabaugh, Linda Gardner, Don McKay, Louise and Vic Cardenzana, performing three nights, Flo & Stan Hortz one evening and the duo of Larry Stahl and Steve Ball one evening. Coshocton once again did itself proud by hosting the Ohio Chautauqua as the performers praised the community for its enthusiastic support of the event.

2010 tax process completed County Auditor, Sandra Corder announces that Coshocton’s Board of Revision has completed the hearing process for tax year 2010, payable in 2011. Board members, Corder, Treasurer Janette Donaker, and Commissioner Gary Fisher, heard, viewed and acted upon the 61 filed complaints during the month of May. The Board reviews submitted evidence and does on-site visits of the properties. Ten of the cases were settled prior to the hearings by the taxpayer accepting the Board’s offer after this review. County-wide reappraisals are performed as mass appraisals, not individual, detailed appraisals like a bank or realtor would require. This means the values are set by neighborhoodbased on average area market values set by sale history. County budgets require mass appraisals, averaging $13 per parcel, as opposed to detailed appraisals, averaging $250 per parcel for residential. Occasionally, a property is over- or under-valued by this method and needs individual attention. The Board of Revision process gives taxpayers an avenue when this occurs.
