Plenty of fresh options at the Coshocton Farmers Market CONTRIBUTED TO THE BEACON BY JESSIE TUBBS I personally enjoy a fry pie from Yoder’s stand or a cinnamon roll from Pam Hill and a hot cup of coffee (thank you Amy Parlan) for my breakfast while I shop and visit with the vendors, shoppers, and families at the Coshocton Farmers Market. I must say, it is a beautiful way to gather some goodies for my family for the week. The River View FFA has been joining us to sell some of their fresh veggies and herbs. It’s nice to see them sharing the knowledge they are obtaining, making some money and growing some quality produce. I bought a bag of small roma tomatoes from them a couple weeks ago and ate every one of them before making it back to my home in West Lafayette. Delicious! Windy Hills has been making some amazing treats as well. If you get the chance to try Mrs. Zelone’s sweet potato butter, do not hesitate! You will not be disappointed. I think I could eat it with a spoon directly from the jar. Need something to spread the butter on? Do not fear! Pam Hill, Amy Shaw, Amy Parlan, and Elenor James frequently have bread and/or rolls that just can’t be beat. My mouth is watering just thinking of clover leaf rolls and sweet potato butter or a delicious jelly. Did I mention the pies and cookies? We have that covered too! Lisa Cutshall makes a small mountain of cookies each week and has tables of pies and dried noodles. Elenor James, Amy Parlan and Cassie Seigriest have a nice selection of pies as well. Amy even has some sugar free for those needing to watch their sugar intake. There are so many other wonderful vendors. Come down and share kalarabi recipes with the Kirkpatricks. You can find fresh herbs and a nice variety of veggies at the Snyder Our Garden table. Krista Seibert is now known as the soap lady because of her amazing laundry detergent (she also has some delicious zucchini breads). Flying Pig farms had sweet corn that smelled heavenly last week. The list goes on and on. We would love to see you there from 8:30 a.m. to noon rain or shine at our Coshocton Fairgrounds.

Senior News

The 29th annual Antique Tractor Pull on Aug. 10 in Bakersville, was a success because of the efforts of the pull committee and the 176 pullers who pulled for over eight hours straight. Area winners in the 26 classes pulled are given below. The 990 halves of chicken that the Bakersville Volunteer Fire Department barbequed sold out in less than four hours. One of the most touching moments of the evening was the short memorial for Rick Lahmers, puller and local resident who was killed in an ATV accident last month.

Coshocton was buzzing with construction. According to plant manager, Bernard Bamer, the goal of the construction was to provide greater production facilities at the local plant. The new construction was to include the installation of fly ash collector, expected to remedy an air pollution problem, a new boiler building providing 80,000 pounds of steam an hour, a new metal smoke stack, and a new addition on the south side of the main plant to house a new digester. This improvement was the third instituted by the local plant since it took over the Coshocton Straw Paper Co. in 1946.

Every new season has its challenges and the Coshocton High School volleyball team understands that it is not exempt. Despite any trials and tribulations they may be faced with, the Lady Redskins are excited about the 2012 season. “These girls have a good attitude about the upcoming season,” said head coach Kayley Andrews, now in her second season. “They are very willing to try new things this year and always have a positive attitude about trying these new things.” One of the biggest challenges the Lady Redskins must contend with is the lack of participants on this year’s squad and that issue is compounded by youth and inexperience. Despite those problems, Andrews maintains a high level of optimism. “Right now we have nine players on the varsity roster and one is injured so that leaves me with eight healthy bodies,” she said. “I hope that the girls will remain uninjured and healthy. I will have young and inexperienced varsity players on the court at all times but I feel they will rise to the challenge.” Among the group are four returning letter winners, three of which are in their final year of high school. Included in the list of ‘senior citizens’ are defensive specialists Julia Kittell and Amber Walters, and outside hitter Ashley Blakely. Blakely was fourth in the team with 40 kills last season and had 26 blocks while Walters led the squad with 126 digs. The lone junior with a varsity award is setter Kasey Means, who dished out 70 assists last season. “I look for my seniors to be great leaders this year as well as my setters who will be the “quarterbacks” of this team,” Andrews said. “They have good relationships with each other and are very encouraging towards each other.” Also expected to contribute are junior outside hitters Becky Bookless and Caley Shaw, sophomore middle hitters Katie Tupper and Madeline Hire and freshman setter Lauren Hire. “All of these girls will play a lot this season,” Andrews said. “I don’t have set starters… everyone will play.” The Lady Redskins, which compiled a 4-18 record a year ago, open their season Aug. 30 at Bishop Rosecrans before opening ECOL play with their first home game Sept. 4 against arch rival River View. Andrews is being assisted by Darcy Gordon.

Coshocton Boys Soccer


Coshocton boys have high expectations BY JIM BARSTOW

The road to victory has become a regular and familiar excursion for the Coshocton High School boys’ soccer team and as usual, the squad will again hope that they have enough in the tank to go the extra mile. A solid core of players return from last year’s campaign in which the Redskins compiled a 16-3 record. During the process, they captured the sectional and district championship before faltering in the Division III regional final, thus denying them a trip to the final four - a goal which has yet eluded the program. Coshocton recorded nine shutouts during the season, including five straight down the final stretch of the season before perennial powerhouse Worthington Christian ended their run in the regional final. It marked the second straight season the Redskins had reached the regional final, having fallen to Columbus Watterson 1-0 in the 2010 tournament. “We have been very fortunate to be one of the most successful in the area the last four years,” said head coach Brian Dunlap. “I have been privileged to be involved with three (East Central Ohio) league titles, three district titles and two regional final games.” As is important with any program, Coshocton boasts a solid mix of veterans with a group of talented underclassmen. Providing the leadership are seniors Drew Dunlap and Kyle Corder, both whom are midfielders/defenders. Corder is a newcomer, having previously played golf at CHS. “Drew Dunlap and Kyle Corder, who is very energetic, will be counted on to mentor 11 new players to the program,” Coach Dunlap said. Also, there are a lot of expectations of the junior class, which include Ian Hartley (forward), Daulton Williamson (midfielder/defender), Corbin Coffman (defender), Colton Jordan (forward), Alex Wheeler (midfielder) and Ben Zimomra (midfielder). Another junior, Marc Smith, will be the keeper. Wheeler and Hartley both earned all-district honors last season. “The returning letterman will be asked to increase their roles and provide leadership to a new group of up-and-comers,” Coach Dunlap said. “Wheeler will assume the role as defensive center back and anchor a young but athletic group and Hartley was a forward who scored and assisted in double digits last season. He will be depended on again.” The lone sophomore on the roster is Jim Magness (midfielder/defender). Freshmen include Austin Wheeler (midfielder/defender), Connor Roahrig (forward/midfielder), Brice George (midfielder/defender), Stuart Dunlap (forward/midfielder), Seth Casey (midfielder/defender), Talon Babcock (defender), Alex McPeak (midfielder/defender) and Kyle Bergeron (midfielder). “I’m enjoying the opportunity to teach a good group about the game,” said Coach Dunlap. “They’ve been told they have a high ceiling and I believe this to be true as well. I believe we will be a team to look at tournament time.” The Redskins opened their season on Aug. 28 at East Central Ohio League foe Cambridge, one of four consecutive road games to start the season. Their first home contest will be on Saturday, Sept. 8 against Groveport Madison. The Redskins will host their games at the Kids America soccer complex on Otsego Avenue.

“This year’s team, though grateful for last years’ experience, will miss the seven graduates greatly,” Dunlap said. “They were the winningest senior class in school history.” “We will improve a lot throughout the season in my opinion. This should be an interesting and exciting group. The guys work hard. Much will depend on the development of the newcomers as to how far we go.” Coach Dunlap is being assisted by former Redskin standout T.J. Helbling.

Reggie Bush, a standout running back in the NFL may have said it best when he stated that ‘talent gets you in the door, but character keeps you in the room.’ According to Coshocton High School girls soccer coach Matt Hartley, he believes that his squad may not only be able to bust down that door but it also has the attributes to be successful throughout the peaks and valleys of an entire season. “We have the most talented team I have ever coached,” said Hartley, now in his third year at the helm. “This group of girls is very goal-oriented and very, very focused.” The good news is Coshocton is coming off a 14-4 record last year during which they were crowned sectional and district champions before falling to West Muskingum 2-1 in the regional semifinal. Even better news is that virtually all of their offensive firepower returns for the 2012 season. While the Lady Redskins will still have to shuffle things around due to the loss of graduates Sara Hamilton, Cheyenne Storsin, Miranda Brown and Brittany Neiger, a group of eight starters return to provide team leadership. Among the returnees is sophomore Emily Hartley, a first team Division III All-Ohio selection a year ago when she led the Lady Redskins with 21 goals and 10 assists. In addition to Hartley, those also receiving all-district postseason honors were senior forward Nicki Carling, junior goalkeeper Hannah Michael (first team), junior midfielder Alexandra Philabaum (second team), senior defender Emily Simpson and junior Kallie Unger (honorable mention). Carling added some firepower with 18 goals and six assists while Michael was a deft stopper between the pipes as she broke the Coshocton school record for shutouts in a season. Other seniors returning include midfielder Kallie Johnson and defenders Emily Simpson, Kalina Scaggs-Payne and Emilee Pell. Also back are midfielders Quantisha Carlton and Katie Stitler. The Lady Redskins will also benefit from the influx of junior Casey Fortney and freshmen Kenzie Mizer and Carly Livingston. All three are midfielders with Fortney switching from the volleyball court to the pitch. “Our biggest challenges this year will be injury prevention, keeping focused on road games, and maintaining our mental toughness,” Coach Hartley said. I’m cautiously optimistic. We can’t get overconfident” Coshocton finished with a 5-2 slate in the East Central Ohio League, which has traditionally been dominated by county rival River View. “I feel River View and Zanesville are the teams to beat in the ECOL this year,” Coach Hartley said. “We have depth we haven’t had before,” Coach Hartley added. “We’re expecting big things.” The Lady Redskins had preseason scrimmages against Newark, Licking Valley, Johnstown-Monroe and Triway before opening the season at Maysville on Aug. 21. Their home opener was Aug. 25 against Philo. They will play their home games at the Kids America Soccer Complex. Hartley is assisted by Craig Hamilton and Kayla Gergley.

COSHOCTON GOLF Deryk Bowman, Deshaun Anderson, Joshua Traut, Thom-

When taking a quick glance at the Coshocton High School golf team, one thing will be obvious; there are certainly no graybeards on the squad. The other thing that is apparent is that despite their youthfulness, the Redskins could be destined for a fantastic season. The core of the team consists of nothing but sophomores and freshmen who have gotten the team off to some early successes. The Redskins placed second among 18 teams in the season-opening Garaway Pirate Invitational on Aug. 11 and third in the small school division of the Indian Valley Invitational on Aug. 13. “We have a very young team, which generally means we don’t have an abundance of experience, but I can already tell we have a lot of heart and desire,” said CHS coach Kevin Kittell. “I believe this year’s squad will mesh together as a team and progressively improve as the season moves on.” Providing the bulk of the leadership will be returning lettermen Patrick Brouse, Luke Sutton and Sam Magness, all whom hail from the sophomore class. Brouse recorded the third-best round of the field in Garaway’s tournament at Willandale Golf Course with a 7-over-par 79 as the ‘Skins tallied a team total of 344 strokes. Sutton added an 87 in the effort. At River Greens in the Indian Valley outing, Brouse carded an 80. Other sophomores hoping to make an impact are Deshaun Anderson, Thomas Gauerke, Jake Glasure Mitchell Milliken and Tristen Spinks. Freshmen vying for playing positions are Gage Bosson, Deryk Bowman and Pranav Kotla. Kittell expects Milliken and Bosson to be especially competitive when it comes to battling for varsity slots. Also on the team are exchange students Gun Satayachiti of Thailand and Joshua Traut of Germany. Both will be getting a late start with the team. For Coach Kittell, it is his 12th season with the golf team and his 10th as the head coach. He guided Coshocton to an overall record of 89-47 last year, including an 8-9 slate and sixth-place finish in the East Central Ohio League. “I am very much looking forward to the upcoming season,” Kittell said. “We have a legitimate chance to advance into the district tournament and compete with the top teams in the ECOL this year.”

To register for the Run for the Bridge 5K Run and Walk, visit the Coshocton Gift Depot at 130 Hickory Street or the Coshocton First Friday Celebration Facebook Page. The first 100 applicants receive a free t-shirt. You better bring your tennis shoes to the September First Friday. The final First Friday of the season will include the Run for the Bridge 5K Run and Walk. The event will be held Friday, Sept. 7. Registration is from 4:30 to 6:15 p.m. at the Coshocton County Court Square Gazebo and the race will start at 6:30 p.m. “People in Coshocton love to run so we thought we would do something like this in conjunction with First Friday so people can come run and still look around Main Street,” said Ginny Mizer, who is a First Friday volunteer. Pre-registration for the race is $20, race day registration is $25 and kids under 12 are free. Money raised from the race will be used to help continue to make repairs to the Three Rivers Veterans Memorial Bridge. Left over money will be used to make other updates along Second Street, Main Street and in Roscoe Village. “It (the gateway into our community) just looks awful,” said Cheryl Triplitt-Wantuck, who also is a First Friday volunteer. “We need people to come out and run for our town.” The race starts at the court square, goes across the bridge to the visitor’s center in Roscoe Village, back across the bridge, up Chestnut Street and down the middle of Main Street. The top finishers of each age group will receive awards and so will the runner or walker who raises the most in sponsor donations. Door prizes also will be awarded. The race is presented by Our Town Coshocton and The Project to Restore America. “Our Town Coshocton is a not for profit group,” said Triplitt-Wantuck. “We are trying to make Coshocton a Heritage Ohio Town, which there are only 27 of in Ohio. We also want to bring the core of our town, Main Street, Second Street and Roscoe, together. The Project to Restore America also is about revitalization of towns.” Mizer and Triplitt-Wantuck also volunteer their time with Our Town Coshocton. “We want Coshocton to look nice and people to want to be here,” Mizer said. A sports and celebrity memorabilia sale also will be held from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at the court square to also raise funds for revitalization projects and plans also are being made for 5Ks in December and May. The Sept. 7 First Friday also will feature a variety of music, food, contests, a cake auction and more. “In August we had 33 vendors and 14 contestants in Coshocton Has Talent,” said Triplitt-Wantuck. “It (First Friday) grows just a little bit each time.” JOSIE@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

Lady Generals poised for successful season BY JIM BARSTOW

It appears that the volleyball arsenal at Ridgewood High School has plenty of weapons available to make another charge in the 2012 season. Six letter winners return to the squad, which features a front line that would be the envy of any basketball squad with five players standing 5-foot-11 or taller. Among top returning players is senior captain Victoria Wiggins. A 5-9 setter/outside hitter, Wiggins earned first team all-district and second team all-IVC laurels a year ago and will be seeking her fourth varsity letter. Also back are seniors Kelsey Miller, a middle hitter and two-year letter winner who stands 6-1, and 5-2 senior libero, Abbey Youngen. Laura Frazee, a 5-11 outside hitter is the lone junior on the team. She and sophomores Amanda Lowery and Erika Michael all lettered last season. Lowery is a 6-0 middle hitter and Michael a 5-5 outside hitter/ defensive specialist.

Over the first several years of its existence, the Ridgewood High School girls soccer program has progressively gotten stronger and this season, head coach Casey Claxon’s expectations have become even higher. The Lady Generals compiled a 7-6-3 record before falling to St. Clairsville by a 4-2 score in the sectional tournament and from that team, six starters and nine letter winners return. Among the squad of 24 players, seven are seniors. “We have a great senior class,” said Coach Claxon. “They’ve really set the tone for our younger players and have turned our program around over the last three years.” Leading the list of senior returning players who started last year are forward Kaylnn Bluck, midfielder Mackenzie Bates, sweeper Maddy Jones and sweeper Stormie Curry. Also back is midfielder Taylor Zinkon while Krista Thomason and Anna Powell will seek playing time at midfield. Ridgewood’s all-time leading scorer with 25 goals, Bluck returns after notching 10 goals and four assists in 2011. An all-district honoree last year, she is transitioning from a midfielder to forward. Bates will add some firepower as she compiled six goals and seven assists a year ago. Additional returning letter winners include juniors Sam Moore (goalkeeper), Kaley Harrison (forward), Morgan Marhofer (midfielder) and Joanna Eberwine (forward). Subbing for starter Amanda Bible, Moore tallied three starts and eight appearances between the pipes last year, recording 22 saves. In the field, she had four goals and two assists for the Lady Generals. Sophomores battling for playing time are Natasha Helmick (defender), Winter Preston (midfielder), Hollie Schwab (midfielder), Kyra Gephart (midfielder), Brianna Grace (midfielder) Amanda Davis (midfielder), Kimi Pepping (defender), Victoria Share (defender) and Lori Hart (defender). Among that group, the defense of Schwab, Preston and Pepping has especially impressed Coach Claxon in the early going. Claxon expects freshman Kristen Milligan to battle for a starting position up front while Sydney Bone (defender), Alexis Zimmerman (midfielder) and Tara Milligan (midfielder) will contribute. Several significant players were lost through graduation, including Jessica Olinger and Bible, both whom were all-district performers, Roxanne Thursby, Alayna Frazee and Halie Schwab. Claxon is in his fourth season as head coach and has compiled a 21-1511 mark during his tenure. He is assisted by Dan Erb. Volunteer assistants are Judd Bone and Crystal Lahna. “This year’s group is committed to working hard, getting better every day, and having fun,” Claxon added. The Lady Generals opened their season on Aug. 20 at Heath and played their first home game Aug. 23 against Licking Valley.

It will be a challenging season for the Ridgewood High School boys and girls cross country teams. Typically a contender for the Inter-Valley Conference title, the boys team has its work cut out as to date, only five have joined the team while on the girls’ side, only four runners are involved with a minimum of five needed for team scoring. The positive note is that two of the boys are seniors, which will provide the Generals with some much-needed leadership in the form of Zak Keesee and Jeff Connor. Keesee returns with some valuable experience as he was one of the Generals’ more consistent runners last season, finishing fifth at the Cambridge Invitational, 10th in the Coshocton County meet, 16th at the Garaway Invitational and 19th at the Newcomerstown Invitational. He capped his season with a 19th place finish at the Division III district at Cambridge. Due to his performance in the Inter-Valley Conference championships, Keesee earned second team all-conference laurels. Connor returns after lettering last year as did sophomore returnee A.J. Allman. Second-year head coach Lester McCurdy will also be counting on newcomers Phillip Shannon and freshman Travis Vickers. “We expect our individual efforts to pay off at the end of the season,” McCurdy said. On the girls’ squad, Leighanna Allman is the lone senior. She is joined by juniors Jessica McCoun and Erica Olinger, along with sophomore Baylee Haynes. “Currently we only have five boys and four girls, but hopefully that will change with the start of school,” McCurdy added.

There has been a changing of the guard on the Ridgewood High School boys’ golf team as the 2012 season gets into full swing. A quartet of starters from last year’s team have departed via graduation, leaving several vacancies on a team that placed sixth among 12 teams at the district tournament at Pickaway Country Club. However, head coach Doug Davis isn’t feeling the need to push the panic button. “After losing four starters from last year’s team, our roster looks a lot different this year,” said Davis. “I have a really good group of kids this year. They are improving every week and they want to be competitive.” The Generals are the defending Inter-Valley Conference champions. In addition, a solid group of four girls will represent Ridgewood on the links. Gone from the boys team through graduation are Tanner Stoffer, Dillon McPherson, Seth Finton and Andy Callahan but Coach Davis himself knows what it takes to be successful on the links as he now serves as the golf pro at the Generals’ home course at River Greens and was a Ridgewood standout. Returning players include Davis’ own son, Tyler, one of just two seniors on the squad. Paige Lane is the senior representative for the girls’ team. Already a three-year letterman, Tyler Davis was a first team all IVC performer a year ago and has experienced success in the early going. He started the season with a 5-over-par 77 to finish as the overall medalist in the Garaway Invite at the par-72 Willandale Golf Course. He then won the Indian Valley Invitational at River Greens with a three-under-par 69 and earned his third medalist award of the season, shooting an even-par 72 to lead the Generals to a second-place finish in the IVC preseason tournament at Wilkshire Golf Course. The other senior on the squad is Howie Young, a two-year letterman. His best effort thus far has been an 8-over-par 80 at the IVC preseason tournament – the Generals’ second-best effort of the day. “Tyler and Howie are the only two returning letterman who have any varsity experience, so I am looking to them for leadership this year,” Coach Davis said. Davis is also expecting contributions from juniors Wesley Cochran, Nathan Hoffman and Jake Pollock, sophomores Sam Bucher, Austin Brown and Cameron Mizer and freshmen Nick Blakley, Bobby Cowdery and Tad Landis. “We have a lot of inexperience, but the more they play and start trusting their games, I believe we can have a good season.” Coach Davis

said. “Nathan, Wesley, and Sam all played junior varsity for me last year and have worked hard on their games all summer. I have seen a lot of improvement and they have really been battling for those last spots so far this season and I believe Blakley is going to be a solid player for us once he gets settled in playing varsity as a freshman.” For the girls’ team, Lane returns after having earned first team all IVC laurels last season and has turned in some impressive finishes thus far with a 2-over-par 38 at Wilkshire Hills and a 9-over 45 at River Greens. She also landed a solid effort in the Tri-County tournament to garner first-team honors. Also participating for the Lady Generals are Samantha Wilson, Kaitlyn Finton and Kristin Poorman. “I think we can do well in the IVC and would like to see them have some strong finishes in tournaments,” Davis added.

For the first year I think the tournament has gone really well and I hope she can make it an annual event.” BEACON PHOTO

They came from as close as West Lafayette, like Jason Olinger who is pictured, and from several states. “I love being out with my beagles and it’s something I can do with my wife and we can spend time together,” Olinger said. Husband and wife Amy and Jake Moore from Arkansas also enjoy competing in beagle hunts together. “This is the best one we’ve ever been to,” Jake said. “It’s worth the drive because of the raffle prizes, PHOTO BY MARK FOR- people and the friendships we’ve made.” Amy also enjoys the hunt. “It has a family atmosphere.” Randy Harris from Virginia also makes the drive to the McVay Beagle TUNE Hunt whenever he can. “I don’t care if they were having a purple, polka dotted cow race, I’d be here,” he said. “The McVay family is first class all the way.

Ohio Department of Health are working together to keep county health departments, county fair boards and county extension agents updated on developments, as well as to collect information, in order to make sure everyone involved, especially the public, has the information they need to remain healthy. Frequently Asked Questions Should I still go to the fair? • Yes. Go to the fair and use common sense. All fair animals, especially pigs, are monitored for illness and signs of flu-like symptoms and are checked by veterinarians every day they are at the fair. This is to protect the health of both people and animals. • Pigs showing clinical influenza symptoms or that have a temperature exceeding 105 degrees will be quarantined and removed from the fair. How can I keep myself and my family health? • Remember to always wash your hands with soap and water after being in close-proximity to livestock and to keep food and drink out of animal exhibits. Older adults, pregnant women, young children, and people with weakened immune systems should always be extra careful around animals. • Never touch an animal that looks sick and never touch an animal if you are not feeling well. • If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, contact a health provider or your local health department. Wash your hands often and cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough. Why is this happening? • Influenza viruses such as H3N2 and its variants are not unusual in swine and may be directly transmitted between swine and humans and vice versa. • When humans are in close proximity to live infected swine, such as in barns and livestock exhibits at fairs, movement of these viruses can occur back and forth between humans and animals. • This is why practicing good hygiene when handling livestock is very important.


The Positive Purpose MS Support Group is having a football party starting at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 9, at Coshocton County Memorial Hospital. Wear the apparel of your favorite college or pro team for some friendly rivalry banter. Bring your kids and your personal MS support folks. Guest speaker Dr. Chad Guess from Five Point Chiropractic also will talk about chiropractic options with MS and nutrition with MS. For information and to RSVP, call Angie at 502-2540 or Cj at 824-4370, or e-mail (put PPMS in the subject line of your e-mail). Pizza and beverages will be provided. Bring a dessert or fruit to share. This group is sponsored by the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation at 1-800-225-6495.

Healthy Living

The Ohio Department of Agriculture and Dr. Tony Forshey, DVM, State Veterinarian, have released the following information regarding H3N2. The Ohio Departments of Health and Agriculture are investigating suspected cases of H3N2v influenza where individuals have reported contact with swine at county fairs across Ohio. The following are some facts and frequently-asked questions on H3N2 for the general public. • Influenza viruses such as H3N2 and its variants are not unusual in swine and may be directly transmitted between swine and humans and vice versa. • When humans are in close proximity to live infected swine, such as in barns and livestock exhibits at fairs, movement of these viruses can occur back and forth between them. • All fair animals, especially pigs, are monitored for illness and signs of flu-like symptoms, and are checked by veterinarians every day at the state and county fairs. This is to protect the health of both the people visiting fairs and the other animals in the barns. Pigs showing clinical influenza symptoms or that have a temperature exceeding 105 degrees are quarantined and removed from the fair. • The following precautions should always be taken when coming in contact with or in closeproximity to livestock: - Wash your hands often with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, especially after you have contact with animals. - Wash your hands before eating or touching your eyes, nose or mouth. - Never eat, drink or put things in your mouth in animal areas. - Young children, pregnant women and people 65 and older should always be extra careful around animals. - Always avoid close contact with animals that look or act ill. • Influenza viruses are respiratory viruses and are not transmitted by eating pork. • The Ohio Department of Agriculture and the

River View Volleyball


Players come, and players go but for the River View High School volleyball team, the transition is usually a seamless one and this season should be no different. The Lady Bears lost four graduates from last year’s 17-9 squad, including All-Ohio outside hitter Amanda Weatherwax, who has taken her talents to Division II Ohio Valley University this fall and four-year varsity player Caley Conkling, who led the team in kills last year. “At River View we seldom rebuild, but rather we reload,” said head coach Cari Bahmer, now in her 12th season. “We have a strong nucleus of returning players but we will need to get some contributions from our youth as well in order to reach our full potential.” Bahmer said the foundation for the 2012 squad will be solid defense. Anchoring the Lady Bears will be senior libero, Kenzie Griffith, one of four seniors on this year’s roster. Also looking to bolster the defense will be defensive specialists Kaylin Reddick, a senior; Summer Jacobs, sophomore; and Cassidy Whiteus, a freshman. Offensively, River View will feature a pair of 6-foot middle hitters in Andi Daugherty and Lydia Els along the front row. A junior, Daugherty paced the Lady Bears in blocks and was third on the team in kills last season while Els was a solid contributor while earning a varsity letter. She is a sophomore. “Our offense will be our traditionally fast-paced one with a few new wrinkles,” Bahmer stated. Returning outside hitters include 5-9 senior Ashton Clarke and 5-7 senior Kylie Hawkins, while additional depth will come from junior Bre Fox and freshmen Allison Cramer and Kayla Metz. Perhaps one of the biggest keys will be the return of 5-9 sophomore Jessie Gibson as the team’s primary setter. During her freshman campaign, Gibson dished out 755 assists. Gibson, Daugherty and Griffith all earned all-ECOL laurels last season while Bahmer was named coach of the year. Helping the Lady Bears prepare for the difficulty of the East Central Ohio League will be a loaded non-league slate. “We will once again be playing a challenging non-league schedule,” said Coach Bahmer. “We are hopeful our strong schedule will prepare us to build on our district final appearance last season. We should be very solid again this year and should challenge for the ECOL Gray division title. The list of foes includes Tuscarawas Valley, Newark Catholic, Tuscarawas Central Catholic, and Triway – all of whom were in the regionals or beyond last season. River View will also attend the Newark Invitational in September which will likely match them up with either Newark Senior or Bishop Watterson, a pair of top tier Division I programs in the Central District. As if that won’t be enough, the Lady Bears were tested early as they faced Dublin-Coffman on Aug. 27 during the Newark Catholic seasonopening preview. “Our solid team chemistry was a large part of our success in 2011 and will certainly be the key factor to our success in 2012,” Bahmer added. The Lady Bears travel to New Philadelphia on Thursday to open ECOL play.

The River View High School boys’ soccer team is a year older, a year wiser and another year closer to regaining its status as one of the area’s elite squads as the 2012 season begins. The first step of that process came as they defeated Licking Valley 5-1 in their season-opener on Aug. 18, but head coach Bornwell Sianjina knows that there is still plenty of work ahead. “It’s going to be an interesting year,” said Sianjina, now in his tenth season at River View. “Many of the same challenges we had last year we’ll have again this year. My goal is to keep their attention, to keep the attitude positive and encourage them to learn. Those are the most critical things.” One of Sianjina’s goals is to rebuild the program to its previous success level whereas the Black Bears have had five regional tournament appearances in his ten-year tenure. “I have been very, very happy with what we have accomplished,” he said. “The players on this team don’t have very big egos which is a plus when you have such a young team. The positive aspect of this group is that they are willing to learn and they want to improve. The key is to keep them from becoming discouraged and to take we do in training and to apply it in the games.” The Black Bears have three seniors, led by returning lettermen Jarrett Hocter and Dillon McPeak. “I hope they will be more involved as leaders,” said Sianjina. “They’ve got to step up and lead the younger players. That’s the key right there.” Hocter will solidify the Black Bears in the midfield and at forward. He displayed flashes of his ability with a pair of goals in their season-opening win while McPeak will focus on the defensive side, sometimes stepping in at goalkeeper, such as he did in the win over Licking Valley and recorded two saves. The third senior is German exchange student Max Thomsen, a defender who participated in club soccer in his home country since the age of 6 and had an immediate impact on the team, helping lead River View’s defensive effort in his first game. Juniors Sianjina will count upon juniors Dalton Beitzel, Matthew Prior, Samuel Hart and Zach Fry. Prior was the starting keeper last year and will assume that role again. In the win over Licking Valley, he had four saves and when relieved by McPeak, he contributed an assist on one of their five goals. Hart will help the offense as evidenced by his two goals and two assists in the season-opener. Hart and Prior both earned all-district honors last season. Sophomores include Austin Glazier and Levi Dille while freshman Dylan White is expected to contribute. Dille recorded the season’s first goal in the Black Bears’ opening contest. “We have a pretty good team,” Sianjina said. “I think this team will surprise a lot of people. We had a couple solid scrimmages. It takes a lot to surprise me but they were able to do that. There is a good work ethic among this group and I’m excited about that.” The Black Bears compiled a 1-17 record last year, including a 5-0 loss to eventual district champion New Philadelphia in the opening round of the Division II tournament at RVHS. In addition to Licking Valley, River View also battled Mount Vernon and Hiland in the early going. Sianjina is assisted by Mike Burr.

A crafty stonemason by trade, Dave Kridler is aware of what it takes to build a solid structure from the ground up. In his second profession he will be plying his trade in a more figurative manner. “There’s no two ways about it, this is a rebuilding season,” said Kridler, head coach of the perennially powerful River View High School girls soccer team. “We’re not using that as a crutch. We just feel that we have a lot of things to fix and we’re sort of fixing them on the fly.” Entering the 2012 season, River View had won 63 games in the last four seasons but lost six players to graduation, including a trio of players who heavily contributed to the team’s run atop the East Central Ohio League. Among those players included striker Keirsten Ashcraft, who is playing for Youngstown State, defender Kristin Eaton, now at Wheeling Jesuit (W.Va.) and midfielder Rachel Hammond is competing at Case Western Reserve. However, Kridler is no stranger to rebuilding seasons at River View. “In 2004, when we started the season, I was petrified,” he said. “We were facing the first time we ever slipped below .500 and we made some changes out of absolute necessity and that team ended up being a regional finalist. “I’m not saying that’s the likely outcome of this group, but coaches like to coach and I’m not resentful that I’m having to coach so hard right now. There is definitely some team chemistry, but the girls need to learn some things such as playing harder when they’re tired.” Shouldering the bulk of the responsibility of providing leadership is a trio of returning seniors in Justine Moran, Torie Wright and Laikin Lauvray. A standout defender last year, Moran is best able to relieve pressure with the ball. “She’s just a very capable player and is a very important player for us,” he said. “She will play a very versatile role for us. She will play everywhere.” Kridler describes Lauvray as a relentless ball hawk and Wright as being very deft in her ability to win 50-50 balls. Juniors Sarah Vickers and Destinee Frank will primarily be defenders but will also be called upon for their versatility. Several players will rotate in the midfield, including Vickers, juniors Cassidy Hunter, Laiken Mills and Erika Massie, sophomore Shaunalynn Dobson and freshman Jensen Hocter. Flank players will be juniors Maisie Mitchell and Courtney Rodriguez while sophomore Heather Maxwell will be the goal keeper. Maxwell is replacing Mills, who last year tore her labrum and has since been converted into a field player. Others who are hoping to work into the rotation are sophomores Shelby Mizer, Kim Titus and Kaitlyn Wright, and freshmen Morgan Ashcraft, Nichole Hepner, Amy Jo Johnson and Sarah Kittner. Hepner will be the back-up keeper. Joining the team late was German exchange student Lena Schoomach.

value of working hard during the offseason as the gun sounds at the start of the 2012 campaign. “The athletes this year are one of the best groups I have seen anywhere,” said head coach Gwenna Neal. “Nearly every team member has worked over the summer to build the base necessary for success. I never fail to be impressed with them.” Now in her third season as head coach, Neal is an avid marathon runner with the desire to teach the kids not only the competitive side of running, but also the lifelong habit and joy of the sport. “I actually won my age group in the Canton Marathon in June and the kids were on my mind much of the time,” she said. “Their dedication helps me to attain my own goals.” Last year both the teams qualified for the regional race although unfortunately one of the male runners was disqualified for stepping out of the muddy line so only the girls ended up competing for the first time in 25 years. Ethan Widder, who has since graduated, did represent the Black Bears at the state meet. “We are upping the ante and looking toward being more competitive in that arena rather than just qualifying,” Neal said. “The boy’s potential is endless. I am very pleased with their preparation and forward thinking.” Returning for the Lady Bears include Raven Wilson and Francie Neal, both who earned all-East Central Ohio League and all-district laurels last season. Also back is Ali Dawson, who has shown marked improvement since placing 15th at the 2011 ECOL meet.

AUGUST 29, 2012


With just two players who have previous varsity experience, the River View High School golf team expects to experience its ups and downs during the 2012 season. The growing pains have been evident in the early going as the Black Bears struggled and placed ninth among large schools in the Indian Valley Invitational at River Greens. Then, they found their stride by capturing third in the Danville Invitational at Apple Valley but again faltered by finishing last in the 10-team Preseason East Central Ohio League tournament at Zanesville Country. Through it all, head coach Chad Gress is willing to take the good with the not-so-good as his team develops. “I’m looking for the team to grow this year and be a little better next year,” said Gress, now in his third season. “We’ve looked good at times but have struggled other times. It’s hard because you want to be competitive but you also have to realize you’re playing three or four freshmen on varsity. “Even the juniors and sophomore are just learning so it’s one of those things where you’re going to have to take in on the chin a little bit now.” With a roster of 15, the Black Bears have five players returning from last year but only one who had extended playing time at the varsity level in junior Ross Anglin. Eight freshmen, two juniors and a sophomore player are in their rookie year of competition. Destined to handle the team’s number one position, Anglin captured his first career tournament victory at Apple Valley when he carded a 10-over-par 82 to earn medalist honors. “That was exciting and it gave us something to build upon,” Gress said. “He’s really been a leader this year, not only while playing the course but he’s really been good about helping the other kids out as well. He is at the level where he can compete at a high enough level to get out of the sectional this year. He knows that and he’s putting in the time.” Stepping up early to fill the other varsity positions have been freshman Kyle Daugherty, junior Riley Zimmerman and sophomore Trenton Elliott. Also battling to secure one of the six varsity spots have been freshmen Jonathan Dart, Bradley Conklin, Brad Rice, Matt Brillhart and Tanner Belangia. Also hoping to crack the lineup are senior Matthew Denbow, junior Corey Rinehart, sophomore Seth Kittner and freshmen Brody Dickerson, Kai Wright and Dakota Smith. “We have a lot of new players and it’s been hard to pick whose better. They’ve all kind of been clustered together,” Gress said. “I just keep holding qualifiers and making every day count. It makes them work harder when they know there’s someone there wanting to take their spot.” “I’m lucky I have a lot of great kids,” Gress said. “The kids are really getting excited about it being their first year and are practicing a lot. I’m proud of the way they’ve taken on the challenge and how they’re maturing as players right now. “We definitely have potential that in a year or two we can be right there contending to get out of the sectional and into the district and possibly state, depending on what they want to do with it. Right now they’re progressing and learning how to adjust in different conditions.”

The ninth annual Keely Maxwell Golf Tournament will be held Sunday, Sept. 16, at Hickory Flats Golf Course. This is a four-man scramble with a shot gun start at 9 a.m. The cost is $65 per person or $260 per team. All proceeds go to the Keely Maxwell Memorial Fund to be used for college scholarships, one per each of the three county schools. Payouts for the first three teams are $500, $300 and $200 based on a field of 30 teams. A hole-in-one on number 17 wins a 2013 Dodge Dart sponsored by Jeff Drennen Dealerships. There is a limit of 36 teams and the deadline to

Pittsburgh to take on Oakland Catholic, a game at Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary, a confrontation with Ontario on Labor Day and a season-opening clash with backyard rival Tri-Valley. And, that’s not to mention the ECOL schedule, which includes the likes of Zanesville and Coshocton, which Kridler admitted could be in line to unseat the defending league champs. “We’ve never lost an official ECOL game and we’re not cheerfully going to go down, said Kridler. “I don’t want to put pressure on my team by telling them they are the team to beat in the league because I don’t believe they are currently but we will look forward to our games.” Kridler is being assisted by Wes Brenly.


“We’ll probably have 14 or 15 players in the rotation, which will challenge us against teams that have depth,” Kridler said. Another challenge Kridler is facing is finding players who will be able to become more viable offensive threats. “In years past, we’ve had players who just took people on and we don’t have that yet,” he said. “We’re trying to score goals with combinations and working very hard on our runs off of the ball. The virtue of this team is that they do play for each other but we need some people to really take the bull by the horns. We really need a couple more wires than we seem to have right now. “I enjoy this group and I want them to have an appetite for success. We want to make sure we’re not putting pressure on them and saying ‘you have to succeed like teams before you have succeeded’. That’s not fair, but it’s also not fair to throw in the towel. We’re going at this really hard and we want to have as much success as we can have.” Despite facing a year of building, River View did not lighten its schedule. “I just did not want to drop the bar,” he said. “We’re very possibly going to take our lumps but we’re using these teams as a measuring stick. We’ll figure that out after the year whether we need to make changes in our schedule. I just felt that we needed to be real. We need to know where we’re at and not dilute ourselves with a soft schedule.” Non-league contests include a trip to



influx of Drew Everhart and Andy Parsons. Also expected to compete for varsity positions are Jakob Eick, James Smith, Nick Wilson, Henry Couts and Austin Wilson. Miller and Scheetz opened the season on a solid note, finishing third and fourth respectively in the Black Bears’ first-place finish at National Trail Raceway. Overall, the Black Bears finished with 36 points. Miller finished the circuit in 18:14, while Scheetz was right behind at 18:18. One of the big challenges River View will have this year is competing for East Central Ohio League titles. “The ECOL competition will be tough,” Coach Neal said. “Coach (Mark) Albaugh does a great job at Claymont training his runners to peak at the right time and although he has some strong runners, I think that my teams will be competitive with his.” Coach Neal also believes that the Dover girls’ team will be strong. “In cross country, it is a tricky business getting your teams where you want them at tournament time,” she said. “I am willing to be patient, get the work done, and we’ll see what happens. When it comes to drive and desire, there isn’t a team that can top River View.”

It was administered by the Agricultural Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDAARS) from 1954-2011. USDA-ARS ended operations in 2011 due to budget issues. Groundbreaking research in soil hydrology has been done at this site and seven funded OSU projects are in the process.
