popular annual event for the young ladies in our program. We like to emphasize the importance of women supporting one another. It is always really interesting to participate in the conversations with these young ladies. This event is important in that we hope to build every young person’s confidence and self-esteem. Feeling good about oneself is one essential key to success. This event encourages the young ladies in our program to talk with one another, support one another, and forget about all the distractions that adding boys to the mix can sometimes provide.” Throughout the event, the girls enjoyed having their hair styled by professional cosmetologist, Mary Mace. Still others reaped the skin softening benefits of a melted wax hand treatment, followed by manicures. To cap off the evening, the girls created personalized key chains. Each participant received a gift bag filled with beauty products. The Mentoring Center is a United Way partner agency, providing a variety of mentoring programs, including the Bigs/Littles program, Little Buddies, Peer Mentoring for high school students, and Side By Side family mentoring. Anyone interested in enrolling in or volunteering for any of the programs offered by the agency is encouraged to call 623-8110.

The Coshocton County Commissioners had their bi-weekly meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 14. The meeting began with the Pledge of Allegiance. At 10:30 a.m., Bernie Minet, Coshocton County EMS Director, was scheduled to speak. According to Minet, for the past couple of years, Coshocton County EMS has been struggling with space issues at their current Coshocton location on Chestnut Street. Minet is looking for another location to begin building a second Coshocton EMS location. In the meantime, he is asking permission from the commissioners to rent a building available on County Road 621. From this location, Minet said his crew can cover the Keene, White Eyes, and those surrounding areas more efficiently and quickly. Currently, all the Coshocton EMS staff is housed at the facility on Chestnut Street, but Minet said the space is too small. He wants to see how housing one crew in the location on CR 621 would work out before building a second permanent location. The cost of rent is $800 a month and requires a two to three year lease. The Coshocton EMS was renting a facility in West Lafayette to store their ambulances during the winter, but Minet wants a location closer to Coshocton. Minet is hoping to build a second permanent location on a countyowned property on Airport Rd. Once that location is secured, a second permanent station could be built in one to two years and the crew could move out of the CR 621 location and move permanently into the Airport Rd station. Dane Shryock’s main question with renting the building on CR 621 is, would the Coshocton EMS crew be able to keep up with and meet the building codes. He pointed out that there are a lot of codes that would need to be met including proper ventilation, handicapped accessibility, and restrooms. Minet needs to make more contacts with building inspectors in the community before proceeding. Before he left, Minet also raised another concern. He wants to meet with the Coshocton County Fairboard to discuss safety issues regarding EMS staff during the motocross races. He said that if a motocross driver is injured, the race does not stop and EMS personnel must dodge oncoming bikes to tend to the injured driver. Minet wants to see if the race can temporarily stop until the injured driver and EMS staff is off the field. Coshocton EMS does this and many other events in the community without compensation. Michael Zaluski met with the commissioners and discussed county insurance claims. Other items on the meeting agenda included: - Report of meeting attended - A request to approve the minutes of the previous meetings as presented were approved - Received the Official Amended Certificate of Estimated Resources dated Nov. 2, 2012 from the Coshocton County Budget Commission - A request to approve the following Then and Now Certificates which have been certified by the County Auditor were approved. See our website. - A request to approve the following Transfers/Additionals/Reductions which have been certified by the County Auditor were approved. See our website.

What am I thankful for? BY JOSIE SELLERS

COSHOCTON - Being a part of Leadership Coshocton County has made me do a lot of thinking. Our retreat in September made me stop and think about what kind of leader I can be. I’m not an outspoken, take charge kind of person, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have an impact. I like to listen and encourage others and I have realized that in some situations that can be very helpful. I just might be the positive influence that someone needs to push them forward. In October we learned about local history. Some of the information I knew and some I didn’t. The day was full of details and lessons, but the one part I will not forget is the video we watched of Mad Marshall Jacobs flagpole wedding. His bride that day was my Great Aunt Lonnie. It was neat to watch live footage of this event and see pictures of my greatgrandparents who I never met. The day reminded me that it’s important to know where we’ve come from and to embrace our history. November’s leadership day focused on education. I’ve been to a lot of our schools throughout my journalism career so I didn’t learn a whole lot of new information. I did, however, walk away realizing that Coshocton has a lot to be proud of. Students in our community have choices. We have three great school districts, a career center to give students a jump start with onthe-job training and COTC, which gives students the opportunity to attend college in their own backyard. At-risk students also have options with the Opportunity School and the Alternative School and special needs children can be guided along by the caring and dedication staff at Hopewell. I guess you could say that my Leadership experience so far has taught me that our little part of the world may not be perfect but we have a lot to be thankful for. With that said, and Thanksgiving around the corner, I decided to do my own list of what I’m thankful for. 1. I’m thankful for my job at The Coshocton County Beacon. My first year here has had its growing pains, but I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. I love my co-workers and I love what I do. I look forward to the opportunity to grow and get better at sharing the stories and accomplishments of our community. 2. I also greatly appreciate the opportunities I’ve had to be involved in the community. I’ve met a lot of wonderful people through Leadership Coshocton County, enjoyed learning about horses in the brief time I was able to help out at Higher Hopes and must say that my time on the Coshocton Behavioral Health Choices board has further strengthened my

COSHOCTON – Coshocton Hospital has taken another step to strengthen the hospital for future success by aligning the hospital’s nursing staff units under the leadership of Chief Nursing Officer Stephanie Conn, RN, BSN, MSN. This reporting structure brings clinical areas responsible for quality direct patient care – all nursing units, nursing educators, case managers and the patient advocate – under the leadership of this new addition to the hospital’s management executive team. Conn began her nursing career as a staff nurse and team leader at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in Norfolk, Va., where she was the recipient of the Nursing Clinical Excellence Award in 2004. She joined Genesis HealthCare System in 2005 and has served that organization as director of professional practice and education services. She has also served as a professor on the adjunct faculty of Muskingum University where she has facilitated, mentored and evaluated students in their RN to BSN nursing program. Stephanie earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Malone College in Canton, and her Master of Science in Nursing with a concentration in Nursing Administration

from Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana. She has over 10 years of progressive nursing leadership experience, with expertise in evidence-based nursing practice/scope and standards of practice; nurse staffing and productivity; program planning and implementation; accreditation and regulatory compliance; global, national, and state trends in health care and nursing practice; continuous quality improvement; shared governance; strategic planning and leadership; and employee training and development. “I am pleased to join Coshocton Hospital at this exciting time in their history in this community,” said Conn. “I have the opportunity to guide re-development projects that will create a strong health care delivery system providing the level of quality care our patients, family and friends deserve.” Conn will oversee all nursing departments and functions, the clinical services that employ 154 of the hospital’s approximately 530 employees. She will be aided by department managers Jason Bryant, RN, BSN, emergency department manager; Lynn Nelson, RN, BSN, medical manager, and Nancy Wells, RN, surgical manager. “Our recovery initiatives identified a need for someone with Mrs. Conn’s strong leadership skills and expertise in a broad range of clinical management areas,” said Robert D. Miller, Coshocton Hospital CEO. “Her experience is a perfect fit, and our collaborative relationship with Genesis helped expedite her transition to Coshocton Hospital.” Conn is a native of Cambridge, Ohio, where she currently resides with her husband and two children.

Writing is a form of therapy for Brad Latham, a 1971 graduate of Ridgewood High School who now lives in Springfield, Mass. “Five years ago I was very sick,” he said. “I was on my death bed and watching life go by. I had multi system shutdown, but after many months in the hospital I am now swimming and walking. During that time I also saw myself writing as much as I could.” Latham also started to feel like he was a ghost of his former self, a feeling which helped him write his new book, “Haunted Hotel.” According to his press release, in the book you can read about the ghost of Latham and his old high school buddy. You can also read about his family as if they are make-believe characters. Many people in this book are from Coshocton County, including Brad’s brother who is developmentally stunted with seizures. Come spend time with his brother passing building blocks in the dwellings Brad now haunts. Ghosts and skeletons are hiding in the closets. “It’s not your everyday ghost story,” Latham said. “It’s about single, married and divorced people who are scared of love and in all sorts of phases of it.” “Haunted Hotel” is about 300 pages long

and it took Latham a year to write it. “It was very therapeutic during my process of getting better,” he said. “I also got to know people better and got closer to them while I was writing.” Latham was very pleased when he found out the book was going to be published. “When my publisher called and said they wanted to publish it I had a big smile on my face and still do,” he said. The book retails for $21.95 plus tax and Latham will be in Coshocton this month to do a signing. Book signing will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 23, at Medbery Marketplace in Roscoe Village and from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 24, at the Unusual Junction on Route 36 between West Lafayette and Newcomerstown. “My books are lot about my family and friends so it seemed fitting to start off in Coshocton,” Latham said. He has written four books and hopes to do more. “The first one was a slow process and the second one came a little quicker,” Latham said. “I like the fact that my instincts are at work when I’m writing. I let my fingers do the talking and just write until I can’t write any more.” Copies of “Haunted Hotel” also will be available online at Amazon,, or at Barnes and Noble Bookstores. Latham just suggests calling ahead in case the store needs to order a copy. “The book is really for everyone,” Latham said. “It’s about all of us being brothers and sisters no matter our race or walk of life.” JOSIE@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

A new twist to an old classic

the sound effects are done live on stage by an actor. Some of these sound effects include horse hooves and breaking glass. “This is different because 95% of the sound effects are being produced on stage,” Pyle said. “You’re really relying on him to do it on cue and at the right time. He’s half the show and it’s really amazing to watch him.” Another one of the challenges for the ensemble is to make the show appear live and unrehearsed even though the show is scripted. Finding authentic 1940s props were hard to come by, according to Pyle. Actors and crew started searching for props last summer, such as 1940s cereal boxes and soup cans. A couple of props are still missing, but Pyle said they are slowly coming together. The cast includes Shane Thornsley, Frank Ackerman, David Wickham, Cody Kirker, Laura Bice, Jeff Wherley, Shelby Hobert, Norma Owens, Austin Wickham, Francois Servais, Jacob Panteloukas, and Kent Kirker.

(NewsUSA) - According to consumer data from 2011, 87 percent of polled shoppers believe that small businesses are a critical component to economic health in the U.S. That 87 percent is spot-on. Small businesses employ nearly half of all private-sector workers and provide 42.9 percent of the private-sector payroll. In addition to generating jobs, thriving locally owned establishments raise real estate values and stimulate entire communities. For instance, Pam Maurer of Colts Neck, N.J., helps invigorate her neighborhood through her independent flower shop. Colts Neck Florist and Greenhouse Gallery in Monmouth County, N.J., is a local favorite, often supplying floral arrangements to high-profile people in the horse racing industry such as retired Hall of Fame jockey Julie Krone. In solidarity and in celebration of the communal benefits of small businesses, Pam participates in Small Business Saturday - the Saturday between Black Friday and Cyber Monday where communities honor small business by shopping local. Since last year’s celebration was a nationwide success, Pam is eagerly anticipating this year’s SBS event on Nov. 24. SBS originated in 2010, and it has rapidly accumulated some clout. During the first Small Business Saturday, participating retailers saw a 28 percent rise in sales, compared to previous years that didn’t celebrate SBS. Now, two years later, it promises to be even bigger as more shoppers, communities and businesses learn about a chance to support independent shops - and start crossing off items on the holiday gift list.

“When we did a read through of the script and everyone was sitting around the table, and we got to the part where the Hitler character takes Tiny Tim and the Lindbergh baby, we were rolling,” said Shane Pyle, director of the production. “We had to stop before we could go on.” According to Pyle, the Footlight Players decided to do this production because it’s a musical, a comedy, and has a Christmas theme, which all seem to be very popular with audiences. “When I read the script, I found it an absolute delight, and I wanted to bring it to the stage,” said Pyle. “It’s hysterical and of course you get to see the joy of working in live radio where everything is live. You had to do the commercials live, the music live, and of course, you get to see everything that can go wrong.” Pyle said the production is a little different from other productions the Footlight Players have done in the past in one respect because all



COSHOCTON - What does Charles Dickens, the Lindbergh baby, and a villainous man named Rudolph all have in common? They’re all a part of the Footlight Players’ new comedy production of “The 1940s Radio Hour: A Christmas Carol”, which will be at the Triple Locks Theatre Nov. 30, and Dec. 1, 7, 8, 15, and 16 at 8 p.m. Set on Christmas Eve 1943, the Feddington Players of New Jersey decide to broadcast a contemporary take on Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’. When they decide to hire a well-known Broadway actor, William St. Claire, they never imagine that the veteran actor will have a nervous breakdown on their live radio production and he begins to compare his life to that of the famous Christmas story. In order to try and save the show from being a complete disaster, the rest of the company improvises the ending to Dickens’ classic, which involves a heroic rescue of Tiny Tim from a Hitler-like character named Rudolph, finding the Lindbergh baby in the process.

The Pomerene Center for the Arts will be having its fourth annual Holiday Cookie Contest on Friday, Dec. 7 at 7 p.m. Deadline to enter cookies for the contest is Friday, Nov. 30.

Thousands came from all over the county and nation to pay respects to Coshocton’s most famous citizen who had passed away, William Green, who rose from the coal mining in Coshocton to become head of the American Federation of Labor. After a brief eulogy given by Baptist minister, Rev. John Shanley, mourners drove to South Lawn Cemetery where Green was laid to rest in peace. The walls of the Glass Funeral Home were covered with flowers, although the family requested no flowers, which exceeded $10,000 in cost. An estimated 5,000 friends of the labor leader filed past his casket.



November 25th, 1962 The new West Lafayette United Methodist Church had just been completed. The church featured an all-glass front, church office, pastor’s study, kitchen, parlor, crib room, nursery, choir room, modern restrooms, and a furnace room. The first service in the new building was to be Dec. 2 at 10:30 a.m. and another at 3 p.m. with Dr. S. Lee Whiteman, assistant to the bishop. Rev. David Patton, pastor of the church for the previous three years, presided at the groundbreaking ceremonies on March 11 of that year. The cost of the new building and furnishings was approximately $145,000.


November 26th, 1972 A gift of $10,000 from the Coshocton Foundation had put the library building fund over its goal of $45,000. The fund drive was made necessary by a provision of the Library Services and Constitution Act, requiring a community to raise over 55% of the cost or remodeling of a building. To qualify for receiving contributions from the state, the library had to raise at least $37,300 from the community. The library board then established a goal of $45,000 to insure adequate money for furnishings. The drive began in September and the Coshocton Foundation donation put them over the top at $50,418.54.

COSHOCTON - When Marge Pizzino’s son enlisted in the Navy her life changed. “I was being told things in abbreviations I’ve never heard and was just at a loss,” she said. “I had no clue about this new culture I was becoming part of so I started seeking information. I went online and found a Navy mother’s group and then I saw an advertisement for the Blue Star Mothers.” She contacted the national organization and was put in touch with the Blue Star Mother’s OH59 group in Coshocton. Blue Star Mothers is an organization of moms who have a son or daughter who is, or has served, in any of the branches of the US military, either as active duty or reserve/guard. They are dedicated to supporting those military members, their families and each other, particularly during deployments, as well as any veterans of the military. Pizzino is now the financial secretary of the local group and in her second term as treasurer of the state group. “Not every state with local groups has a state level,” she said. “Only four states actually have one. The national organization encourages it though because it makes it a lot easier to have that intermediate group.” There are two meetings held by the state each year. “We see where the groups are at and talk about their concerns,” Pizzino said. “We also talk about critical issues in the world of veterans.”

FAMILY TIME Mary Hykes helps her granddaughter Addison Lahmers get a plate of food during the Thanksgiving dinner held Nov. 15 at Hopewell School. The dinner was for students in Travis Edie’s and Bob Casey’s classes. BEACON PHOTO BY JOSIE



COSHOCTON - Thursday was a big day for 4-year-old Addison Lahmers. It was crazy hair day and she got to spend time with her grandparents. Lahmers is in Travis Edie’s pre-kindergarten class at Hopewell School, which joined forces with Bob Casey’s transition class Nov. 15, to hold a Thanksgiving Dinner at lunch time for students and their families. “I think it’s great that they do this,” said Mary Hykes, Lahmers grandmother. She made a turkey for the occasion, which Lahmers thought was yummy. “We like to help out,” Hykes said. Edie and Casey started the dinner last year. “It’s important for families and schools to work together and I thought what better way to unite the two than a Thanksgiving dinner,” Edie said. “We just asked that they bring something if they could and give us a number so we had a head count.” The meal turned into quite the covered dish.

Casey was enjoying watching the kids interact with their families. “This works out great,” he said. “Lots of parents, grandparents and friends show up at school and the kids’ faces light up.” About 50 to 60 people attended the event.

COSHOCTON - The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is offering a guided tour of its special exhibit, Traces of Time, Traces of Glory, at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29. The exhibit features prehistoric tools and points that were found in Coshocton County by local residents. Dan Brenneman, tour guide for the evening, has been collecting artifacts for 30 years. His interest began at about age 10 after his family moved to a house at Sycamore and Third Streets, right across from the Sycamore school building where the museum was located. The artifact display fascinated him. One day he asked a boy at school how you went about finding Indian relics and the boy told him. That began his lifelong avocation of studying and collecting artifacts. Program participants can expect to move from case to case as Dan points out the outstanding pieces. His knowledge of the artifacts and ability to communicate this knowledge will make for a fascinating evening. The tour cost is included in the price of the museum’s general admission: $3 for adults and $2 for students. Traces of Time, Traces of Glory: Native American Prehistoric Tools and Points is on display through Dec. 30. Exhibit sponsors are Organic Technologies and Three Rivers Therapy. The museum is open 1 to 4:30 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. For information, contact the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum at 740-6228710 or e-mail

FRAZEYSBURG – American troops stationed overseas will celebrate the holidays with an Ohio-grown tree thanks to Operation Evergreen, an annual event Tuesday, Nov. 13 at the Ohio Department of Agriculture’s Reynoldsburg campus and organized by the Ohio Christmas Tree Association (OCTA).

Hopewell Indians continue to grow and improve COSHOCTON - Hopewell Indians Head Coach Devin Rivera has a huge team this year and he plans on playing them all. “As a coach of a Special Olympics team my job is to make sure everyone enjoys playing,” he said. “Last year I made sure everyone got to play four minutes so every four minutes I had a new set of five on the court.” Rivera said over the years the team’s numbers have climbed from the 20s to the 30s to the 40s, with the 2012-2013 roster including 46 people. “We are getting bigger every year,” he said.

“I think it is because we are getting more well known in the community.” Rivera believes last year’s group was 18-3. Some key returnees from that team are Tanner Schie, Jalen Berry, Brandon Corder, Karl Murray and Lindsey Ashcraft. “Tanner was our leading scorer, Jalen is good at rebounding, Brandon is good at boxing out and rebounding and Karl and Lindsey are both good at dribbling,” he said. However, no matter who is on the court, Rivera knows they are all going to give 100 percent.

“Once on the court and at practice, no one gives less than that,” he said. Dedication is definitely a team strength and Rivera couldn’t think of any weaknesses. “The only thing I could say is that two years in a row we’ve been one game away from the state tournament,” he said. “Our goal as a team is definitely to win the state tournament.” The Indians will play in Division III again this year. “It’s more competitive than Division IV, which says to me that we’ve improved as a team,” Rivera said. Rivera, a graduate of River View High School, started volunteering with the Indians in 2008 and this is his third year as head coach. “I always wanted to be a coach and this is where my heart is,” he said. The Indians will begin their season at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11, against Belmont County, at Kids America, where all home games are held. “I just want everyone to have fun, learn about the game and become a better player,” Rivera said.

Spread some holiday cheer at Four Paws


have been known to survive well into the winter months, thanks to indoor havens and protected microclimates existing within larger, cooler climate zones. For this reason, the American Heartworm Society recommends year-round heartworm protection for both dogs and cats. Do ensure your senior pet has a warm, draftfree place to sleep. Many older dogs and cats suffer from arthritis. Just as sore joints in people tend to feel worse in cold weather, so it is with pets. A warm cozy bed can make nights - and mornings - more comfortable. Do be sensitive to your pets’ feelings if fall brings changes to your household. Just like people, pets can get depressed. And if you’re missing a son or daughter who has moved away to start college or a job, chances are your family pet is also feeling the loss. Spending time with your pet and giving him an extra measure of cuddling and affection will help both of you feel better.


COLUMBUS—State Representative Brian Hill (R-Zanesville), along with other members of the 129th Ohio General Assembly, participated in a joint convention to present the Ohio Military Medal of Distinction to the families and friends of 28 service members who died while serving their country in 2011. Included in the ceremony was CPO Raymond J. Border of West Lafayette, who was part of the United States Navy and died Oct. 19, 2011. The Ohio Military Medal of Distinction was created in Senate Bill 248 of the 127th Ohio General Assembly to honor the sacrifice of Ohio’s fallen service members and their loved ones on behalf of the State of Ohio, and the General Assembly convenes annually for this purpose. Participating in the presentation were Ohio House Speaker William G. Batchelder, Ohio Senate President Tom Niehaus, Lieutenant Governor Mary Taylor, Brigadier General Mark Stephens and Ohio Department of Veterans Services Director Thomas Moe. “Today, I was humbled to join my colleagues in recognizing these brave service members and honoring the life of CPO Raymond Border,” Representative Hill said. “We are continually grateful for their service.”

(BPT) - The arrival of autumn signals many changes in the household, from switching from salads to soups to pulling sweaters out of storage to changing furnace filters. With pets, however, you may need to think as much about what you don’t change as what you do. Chicago veterinarian Dr. Shelly Rubin is well acquainted with the dramatic temperature swings that accompany the change of seasons, as well as how to help pets and owners cope with them. Following is his list of fall do’s and don’ts for pet owners. Don’t ‘fall’ off the exercise wagon. With days getting shorter - and cooler - it can be tempting to skip your early morning or evening walk. But with more than half of all pets in the U.S. being overweight or obese, exercise is vital. A daily walk, or several shorter walks, can rev the metabolism of both two- and four-legged walkers for hours. Do ensure your pet is outfitted for cooler weather. Small, light-bodied breeds, dogs with very short hair and older dogs with weakened immune systems are likely to need a sweater when venturing outside. And once cold and snowy weather sets in, dogs may require protective footwear to keep their paw pads from freezing. Don’t assume that cooler weather eliminates the threat of diseases like heartworm, which are spread by infected mosquitoes. Mosquitoes

Should you ‘winterize’ your pet?

dogs at Four Paws a permanent home for the holidays, but still want to help, you can apply to be a foster parent. “How long you foster the dog is up to you,” Valentine said. “We will give you dog food and if the dog gets sick while you have it we will take care of the veterinarian bills. They just need love and a home.” She’d like to see all the dogs fostered so Four Paws can do some work on its basement. “There are things we want to do that we can’t with the dogs there,” Valentine said. “We’d like to do some repairs to the kennels and work on the floors. We aren’t hiding it from the public, we just aren’t happy with the way it looks. After we make some changes we can open it for people to come look at the dogs.” If fostering isn’t for you, Four Paws also is in need of volunteers to walk the dogs and people to donate blankets to be used as bedding. To learn more about Four Paws and the dogs and cats available for adoption there, stop by from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. Four Paws is located at 504 Main St. and also houses a thrift shop. JOSIE@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM



COSHOCTON – Rocky has stolen Shari Valentine’s heart and she would like nothing more than for him to find a home for the holidays. “His Daddy is active duty in the military,” said Valentine. “He’s not overseas right now, but when he’s home he has a job on an oil well and just can’t keep him.” Rocky, a 6-year-old lab/bluetick mix, has had one owner since he was a puppy. “He’s a special dog,” Valentine said. “He needs love and lots of it.”

She fostered Rocky for two years while his Dad was in Iraq, but she couldn’t keep him because she has cats. “Cats are a big issue with him,” Valentine said. “He’s a hunting dog so when they run it catches his eyes and he chases them.” Rocky, however, seems to get along with other dogs. “We have eight of them and he got along with everybody,” Valentine said. Rocky also is fine with kids, but Valentine suggests they be older ones. She also said whoever adopts him needs to be strong. “He weighs 72 pounds now,” Valentine said. “He’s a stocky boy and needs a strong family. His Dad would get him and just let him run and run. He does pull when you walk him, but once he gets into it he settles down.” Rocky has officially been with Four Paws Since Aug. 7. “He’s stressed being here,” Valentine said. “It wasn’t easy for his Dad to give him up. He’s an awesome dog. If you can’t give Rocky or one of the other


Coshocton is Blooming spreads Christmas cheer



NOVEMBER 21, 2012



VOLUNTEERS Volunteers helped cut up spruce trees and assemble greenery BASKETS The city street department hung baskets of greenery made by Cofrom them in 32 hanging baskets. PHOTO CONTRIBUTED TO THE BEACON shocton is Blooming volunteers. PHOTO CONTRIBUTED TO THE BEACON COSHOCTON - Coshocton is Blooming is making the most of the hanging baskets that went up around town to beautify the city and impress America in Bloom judges this summer. The summer flowers were replaced by mums this fall and now spruce is being put in the baskets to help spread holiday cheer. “The city had two big trees at South Lawn Cemetery that had to come down and they let us use them for our baskets,” said Connie Miller, from Coshocton is Blooming. One of the trees was a Norway Spruce and the other was a Colorado Blue Spruce.

Volunteers helped cut the trees up and assemble greenery from them in 32 hanging baskets. “The Norway is more flexible so we used it to hang down and the Blue Spruce is more upright so it was our filler,” Miller said. The baskets were hung by the city at Second and Chestnut streets, Second and Main streets, Main and Sixth streets and Main and Seventh streets. “It’s really nice of the city to lend us a hand,” Miller said. “The fairboard also let us use the art hall to put the baskets together and their wheelbarrows. It’s been a real collaborative

effort.” Coshocton is Blooming hopes to have the baskets up until the New Year. “It really depends on the weather,” Miller said. “If it’s warm the spruce will shed but if it’s snowy and rainy they will hold up unless strong winds come.” She hopes people will see the baskets and want to get involved in Coshocton is Blooming projects. “You can learn new skills that you can take home with you,” Miller said.

NOVEMBER 21, 2012



Home sales activity in Ohio up in October Home sales activity throughout Ohio increased 23.1 percent in October, helping the marketplace record its 16th consecutive monthly sales gain, according to the statistics provided by the state’s Multiple Listing Services. Sales of new and existing homes have posted a 13.1 percent increase during the first 10 months of 2012 compared to the same period a year ago, reaching 94,733 sales versus the 2011 mark of 83,728. “It’s become increasingly evident that the Ohio housing market is making significant progress in its recovery from the economic downturn – achieving increased sales activity for 16th consecutive month and seeing a steady uptick in the average sales price,” said Robert U. Miller, president of the Ohio Association of REALTORS. Miller noted that the Association began tracking sales data in 1998 and the current stretch of 16 straight monthly gains is the longest uninterrupted period of sales growth the Ohio market has ever recorded. “Across the Buckeye State we’re building a solid foundation for a sustainable, growing housing marketplace going forward,” he said. “Ohio REALTORS continue to be extremely confident about the prospects for our market – as interest rates remain at historic lows, prices have begun to trend upward, inventories are declining, sellers are increasingly realistic in their pricing expectations and consumers understand that long-term, owning a home is a tremendous investment.” Not only have sales levels during the first 10 months exceeded the pace of a year ago, the average sales price (January through October) throughout Ohio this year is up 4.8 percent, reaching $135,435 versus the 2011 mark of

$128,954. Total dollar volume this year is $12.8 billion, an 18.8 percent increase from last year’s 10-month mark of nearly $10.8 billion. Miller noted that a recent survey of the state’s real estate professionals suggests the industry remains cautiously optimistic about the market’s outlook in the coming months. The OAR Housing Market Confidence Index, a recently created measurement of the perception Ohio REALTORS® have of the marketplace, offers the following highlights of the November 2012 report: - 78 percent of REALTORS describe the current housing market in their area as moderate to strong; a significant increase from the 53 percent mark the profession posted during the month a year ago. This month’s REALTOR Current Market Index measurement reached 43, a 16 point improvement from the November 2011 score of 27. - 75 percent of the respondents have moderate to strong expectations for their market in the next six months; increasing 23 percentage points from the November 2011 level of 52 percent. This month’s REALTOR Future Market Index reached 43, a 16 point increase from the November 2011 Index of 27. - 86 percent of REALTORS believe home prices over the next year will remain stable and could even post gains; 7 percentage points more than the findings in November 2011 (of 79 percent). The REALTOR Price Index for REALTORS’ expectations for the next year reached 61, a 17 point increase than the mark recorded during the month a year ago (44). “Ohio’s REALTORS remain remarkably

bullish about the current and long-term prospects of our housing market,” Miller said. “REALTORS are there when buyers and sellers express their hopes and concerns during what is often the largest financial decision made in a lifetime. Our outlook is simply a reflection of the discussions taking place at countless kitchen tables across Ohio. “We’ve made significant progress in our confidence about the market in a relatively short period of time,” he added. “REALTORS fully understand that there will be challenges and obstacles in our economic recovery efforts in the months ahead, but are certain that the desire to achieve the American Dream of homeownership remains strong throughout Ohio.” Sales in October reached 10,131, a 23.1 percent increase from the 8,230 sales posted during the same period a year ago. The month’s average sales price of $133,800 is an 8.0 percent increase from the October 2011 mark of $123,148. Total dollar volume in October reached $1.35 billion, a 33.7 percent increase from the $1.0 billion mark posted a year ago. Data provided to OAR by Multiple Listing Services includes residential closings for new and existing single-family homes and condominiums/co-ops.

#Giving Tuesday a new way to give COSHOCTON - This year, something unique will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 27. It’s being called #Giving Tuesday. The goal is to launch a day of giving at the start of the annual holiday shopping season and to show that holiday shopping can be about both giving and giving back. People all over the United States including retailers, charities, online organizations, community centers, individuals, families and more will come together with one common purpose – to help others and incentive ways to give more, give smarter, and celebrate the great American spirit of contribution. #GivingTuesday is not a new giving platform, but a call to action to celebrate giving and encourage more, better and smarter giving during the Holiday Season. It’s an organizing principle to encourage the creativity and energy of Americans to work together for good. The United Way of Coshocton County is in the thick of the current 2012-2013 campaign.


During the last several campaigns, generous donors have made the goal or surpassed it, thus enabling the Board to take on two new agencies, bringing the total to 20 supported agencies. The new partners are Hope Clinic and Coshocton CARES- college access program. Last year, the agencies provided services to over 12,000 county residents, which is one out of three individuals. “We know that Coshocton is not only in need of the vital services our agencies provide, but its people are also very generous in giving their time and resources, and we are very thankful,” said Lyn Mizer, Executive Director. “We are hoping that they will continue to support the United Way especially on #GivingTuesday by filling out their pledge forms at work and at home.”

Spang signs with Tiffin University SIGNING


River View High School senior Taylor Spang signed to play softball at Tiffin University Nov. 15, in the high school library. Pictured seated are Rhonda Ringwalt, Taylor’s mother, Taylor, Mike Spang, Taylor’s father and behind them are Greg Ringwalt, Taylor’s stepfather and Kathy Spang, Taylor’s stepmother. BEACON PHOTO CLASSIFIED HOTLINE 622-4ADS


NOVEMBER 21, 2012


WARSAW – Taylor Spang started playing softball at the age of 5 and has played year round since she was 9. Her years of hard work paid off Nov. 15, when she signed her letter of intent to play at Tiffin University. “Their softball program is really good and I want to major in criminal justice and their program is one of the best in Ohio,” Spang said.

“It’s also a nice, small community like it is here. You are not just a number. Signing is a big weight off my shoulders. Now I can just focus on playing.” Spang is a pitcher for the River View High School Lady Bears. “I like softball because you can’t just rely on one person,” she said. “You have to rely on each other. You also make some great friends.” Some of Spang’s best memories of playing softball are about the friendships she formed. “I’ve gotten to play with a lot of the same people since I was little,” she said. Spang is looking forward to making new friends on the college ball diamonds.

BY JOSIE SELLERS “I’m also looking forward to learning more about the game and competing on a different level,” she said. “Playing college ball has been a goal of mine ever since I was really little.” Spang’s family is happy that she is getting the opportunity to live out her dream. “I couldn’t be happier for her,” said Mike Spang, Taylor’s father, who also pitched in high school. “She runs the bases like I did. She’s really fast and loves to steal.” Rhonda Ringwalt, Taylor’s mom, also is very proud of her. “She’s worked really hard for this,” Ringwalt said. “She’s put a lot of time into softball and she’s very dedicated. When her sisters were older and played she couldn’t wait to get out there too. She started when she was 5 and has gone nonstop since then.” Sarah Lindsey, the head softball coach at River View, also was excited to watch Taylor’s signing in the high school library. “This is great recognition for Taylor and our program,” Lindsey said. “We (coaches) like to see kids get the chance to play at the next level and softball help them get their education.” This is Lindsey’s first year coaching at River View and she is glad to have Taylor on the team. “I’m looking forward to having her on the mound and seeing her leadership with the team,” Lindsey said.

Lake Park bazaar has something for everyone COSHOCTON - If you are looking for a way to get into the Christmas mood, the Holiday Bazaar at Lake Park is a good place to start. “The Christmas lights and music will be on while you look at the tables of handmade, one of a kind items that you can’t get anywhere else,” said Lori Everhart, director of the Coshocton Park District. The bazaar will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. the day after Thanksgiving, Nov. 23, at Lake Park Pavilion. “This is the 10th or 11th year for the bazaar and typically we are sold out of tables,” Everhart said. The Pavilion has space for 60 tables that in the past have featured jewelry, wooden crafts, baked goods, homemade mustards, candy, crochet items, kids’ hair accessories, Ohio State themed decorations for Christmas and the home and much more. “There is a great variety, but the best thing is that it’s all handmade,” Everhart said. Money from the bazaar is raised from the vendors paying for their table space, a food stand, 50/50 drawings and raffles. “It’s a good bazaar and it’s well known,” Everhart said. “Last year we cleared $1,800 to $2,000.”


The bazaar is hosted by Friends of the Parks and money raised from it helps with a variety of projects. “The Friends of the Parks are a very important group to us,” Everhart said. The Friends of the Parks provide volunteers for activities, purchase mulch and flowers that are used at Lake Park, put fish in the basins and also have paid to have picnic tables and grills replaced. “They also stepped up to pay for our levy campaign for February’s ballot,” Everhart said. “They (Friends of the Parks) are always there to help.” JOSIE@COSHOCTONCOUNTYBEACON.COM

Many holiday bakers need help achieving the perfect cookie consistency. Visit Hershey’s Cookie Headquarters for expert baking tips like: - To prevent cookies from becoming hard and tough, avoid adding more flour than necessary to the cookie dough or batter. Taking cookies out of the oven 1 to 2 minutes early may also help keep them soft after they cool. - To avoid cookies that are too flat, try refrigerating the cookie dough for at least 30 minutes before you scoop them on the tray. This will keep the dough from spreading too much when placed in a hot oven. For a fool-proof holiday cookie, try this easy recipe for Hershey’s Peanut Butter Blossoms:
