“It’s a good time for fellowship by different churches,” said Don Lusk, “Some people can get messages from the preacher preaching and some get their messages through music.” Everyone is welcome to attend the event. Soul’d Out Quartet will also have their CDs available after the performance. REACT will be on hand to help with parking. “There are so many things in this country that are going away from being Christian,” said Lusk, “It’s time Christians stand up. It’s time that we understand and love one another. I hope everyone can kick back and relax and enjoy some good gospel music.” The Soul’d Out Quartet will be at the First Baptist Church at 688 East Main Street in West Lafayette on Friday, Dec. 2 at 7 p.m. For more information on the group, visit their Web site at or call Don Lusk at 545-6509.

mission auto nominated for Quality dealer of the year

Les Revennaugh, owner of Mission Auto Connection located at 44672 US 36 in Coshocton, Ohio has been nominated for Quality Dealer of the Year for the State of Ohio. Every year, the Ohio Independent Automobile Dealers Association (OIADA) accepts nominations from individuals honoring their choice of Independent Automobile Dealers to compete for the honorary title of Quality Dealer of the Year. Although there are many nominated, few are chosen and only one dealer will be named Quality Dealer of the year for the state of Ohio. To be nominated for this coveted title is a high honor for Mr. Revennaugh as there are more than 5,250 dealers in contention throughout Ohio. Nominations are received by the OIADA throughout the year and the separation process begins. Only nominees who have displayed a career of professionalism, financial stability, support of their community and dedication to their church are considered and Les Revennaugh is one of the three finalists who will compete for this award. A selection committee, including the previous years’ winner, will decide which of the finalists are chosen to receive the award. The committee members

submit their individual ballots to the OIADA by Nov. 15 where the votes are tallied and the final selection is decided. All of the nominees will be honored on Dec. 3 at the OIADA Annual Awards Banquet, which will be at the Conference Center at Northpoint in Lewis Center, Ohio and the name of the Quality Dealer of the Year will be revealed. The dealer who is chosen will represent Ohio and the OIADA at an annual convention conducted by the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association (NIADA) in June of 2012 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV where they will compete against all the other state award winners from around the country for the title of National Quality Dealer of the Year. The OIADA, located at 2040 Brice Road in Reynoldsburg, Ohio was chartered as a nonprofit corporation in 1985 under the acronym of ADAO or the Automobile Dealer Alliance of Ohio. It was renamed in 2004 to the more universal OIADA to conform as an affiliate of the NIADA located in Arlington, TX. The Ohio Quality Dealer of the Year program is an honorary award dedicated to one of the late founders of the OIADA and its first Executive Director, Mr. Jack Denney.

November 24th, 1951 The Roscoe Tigers opened their 1951- 52 basketball season with a crushing victory over Adamsville. The Tigers started out strong with a 23 – 9 lead in the first quarter and never faltered. Center Keith Whitaker racked up 16 points for the Tigers. However, the scoring honors in the game went to Ken McNeish from the opposing team. But that fact didn’t affect Roscoe’s performance as they went on to win it with a 60 – 47 final score. It was a good night all around for Roscoe as the seventh and eighth grade team also defeated Adamsville with a final score of 45-22. classified hotline 622-4ads

November 29th, 1961 The 1961 – 62 school year marked the last time Coshocton would participate in the AllCentral Ohio league football team, and since Coshocton hadn’t won a COL game, it was more than impressive that three Redskins had been selected to be among the 20 other athletes in central Ohio. Gary Jones, William Stoner, and Richard Walsh had been chosen by the sports writers of the circuit to the annual honor team. This was the second year Jones had been chosen, and all three were named to the defensive unit.


November 27th, 1971 It’s Christmas time in Roscoe Village and “Christmas by Candlelight” promised to be yet another old-fashioned special Christmas for visitors to the village. The tree was scheduled to light on Dec. 11 followed by the lighting of hundreds of candles throughout the village. The decorations had been chosen to recapture the spirit of Christmas at eventide during the 1800s. After the lighting of the tree, visitors could take a ride on a bobsled, visit Santa’s sleigh outside the Olde Warehouse Restaurant, or stroll through the village as carolers dressed in period costumes sang oldfashioned Christmas carols. Throughout the holiday season, carolers as well as sleigh bells were heard throughout the village.

The Coshocton Footlight Players will be presenting the comedy “The Kitchen Witches” over the next three weekends at the Triple Locks Theater. Shelly Lillibridge, cast in the role of Dolly Biddle, has her own cooking show, but, in the words of Lillibridge, “It is tragically coming to an end, or so she thinks. And things happen to make it not so. I enjoy the costumes, the sarcasm, and the fun, of this character. This play is non-stop comedy, there’s always something happening, it’s a busy set. Every character brings something to the table; it’s a nice story that rolls into a nice heartwarming Christmas.” Dana Kittner, who is cast in the role of Isobel Lomax, “Busy Izzy”, said, “My character is named “Busy Izzy” for a reason. She likes to get her nose into other people’s business.” Kittner was in a Christmas play a couple of years ago at the Triple Locks Theater as a Scrooge character.

She also participated in plays at college. Kittner said, “Theater just allows me to stretch myself, and actually kind of reinvent a side of myself that is undernourished, maybe. You can’t go wrong with this cast, everyone is so good hearted and they bring out the best in you, it’s a win-win.” “I think the audience will enjoy laughing – there’s a lot to laugh at. Perhaps they will see themselves in a lot of the scenarios, and even in the touching ending, it will hit home for a lot of folks.” “I think that anybody that needs a heartwarming experience, a little blue, a little down, looking forward to trying something different over the holiday’s, this is their venue to try it.” Chester Boffo, who is cast as Rob, the cameraman, said, “My character is quiet, he’s reserved, he’s an outcast type of person, he doesn’t think that anybody understands him, he’s a very rebellious, kind of dark, shady person. He’s in a program called, “Keep our kids off the street program”, and that’s the only reason he’s here doing the camera, so he’s not in prison or juvenile or wherever it is he would be if he wasn’t in the show.” Asked if the character bore any similarities to himself in real life, Boffo chuckled and said, “Well, in high school I did dress a lot like the part but other than that, I wasn’t really mentally like this character.” “This character is a challenge for me because there’s not a lot of speaking parts, so therefore I kind of have to build the character all by myself; I have to breathe life into the character all by myself and kind of figure out how he would react to what they’re talking about.”

November 23rd, 1981 Hopewell Schools received some good news from members of the Ohio General Assembly when a capitol improvements bill, containing 1.7 million dollars for a new school building, was passed. Assistant Superintendent Rick Edmonds said the new Hopewell School would probably begin construction after all operating budget problems were solved. The state’s capitol improvements bill originally excluded funding for a Hopewell School, but thanks to a State Representative from New Philadelphia and Coshocton, that changed. Edmonds said he planned to write to both thanking them for their generosity.

The shows themselves feature, a lot of times, some good writing, I enjoy the jokes a lot myself.” Duffy has been in several other performances at the Triple Locks Theater; in 2007 he was in “Dilemmas with Dinner”, has been in two other Susan Gordon directed plays; “Dearly Beloved” and “Christmas Belles” and a few others, “Hand Jive” and “Chapter Two.” “Steven is really a nice guy trying to do his best with not a lot to work with in a lot of cases, which is something that I think a lot of people 688 E.

I hope they enjoy the humor, the poignancy, the story behind it; it’s not just slapstick comedy. A love offering will be taken.

A pair of local concerned citizens is the energy behind the effort to keep Peebles on Main Street following reports that the company may be seeking to relocate to the Wal-Mart shopping center. Cheryl Cooksey, a Realtor with Real Living The Right Choice, and Sam Wereb, a local web developer, have joined together to keep the downtown vibrant. One of the keys to the campaign is in form of emerging technology, QR codes, or Quick Response. You’ve no doubt seen these small boxes that combine patterns of black and white squares that allow you to “quick link” to a website with your mobile phone. Large retailers and Fortune 500 companies are using the technology in their printed inserts, mailers, print ads and in their stores. The effort to retain Peebles is linked to this technology with 45 decals that have been placed in Main Street store windows by merchants. Wereb explains, “A quick response is a square, a two dimensional bar code that has binary encryption in it that encrypts letters or numerals. The ones you see on the decal in the windows contain encryption for a phone to read a website address, in this case its www. Using the QR code makes it easier for someone to scan that and go

to a website than it is to ask them to memorize a website address, go home, make dinner, put the kids to bed, whatever, and then go to the website. This makes a hard link from the paper world to the online world.” Once you get to the website, either from a mobile phone or typing it into a web browser, you can help show Peebles that we are serious about keeping them on Main Street. This is not a boycott or a protest, this is Cheryl and I walking around placing paper petitions into the stores letting them know that Peebles is going to move unless we do something about it. This is not a done deal and there is time.” Once on the website, www.mainstreet43812. mobi, you can click on the links for more information, show support and more. Wereb explained QR codes further, “It is not as mysterious as they look, it is simple binary encryption, each of the black squares and each of the white negative spaces represents either a one or a zero, which the binary encryption produces. Any type of barcode would work but this is the format used. They were actually invented by Toyota or a Toyota subsidiary back in the early 1990’s so it is not new. It was used to track all the parts and inventory. Cooksey explained that she is currently using the technology in her Homes & More real estate magazine advertising. (Homes & More is published monthly by Good Fortune Advertising LLC, the publishers of The Coshocton County Beacon, which can be accessed by scanning the QR code located in the upper left of the front page). “If you scan the code it will bring up every listing that I have”, said Cooksey. Cooksey said about her initiative to focus on keeping Peebles on Main Street, “I became aware of this about three weeks ago and my first inclination was to do a letter writing drive. But when thinking about it, I realized that everyone is busy, everyone else is busy, it’s going to get lost, and you’re going to forget. So I thought, it’s probably going to be easier to stick a petition under someone’s nose and say, “Hey, we’re trying to keep Peebles on Main Street, would you sign it.” We’re having a lot of success in that. I had a phone call from a business on Main Street last week who said, “Hey, can you bring me a new petition, this one’s full, can you bring me another one.” “We’re getting good response from that, Sam has helped tremendously in setting up this mobile website, we’re getting some letter from merchants’ downtown. When you go to the website, you can email your support, you can put your phone number, your email address, and you send them a message. We have some merchants who have done this, that are strongly encouraging them to stay on Main Street. We want more of

And we can’t afford to lose one more, Main Street can come back, Main Street USA can come back. But what’s going to bring Main Street, Ohio, Coshocton, Main Street USA back is small businesses. We’ve got to keep the small businesses on Main Street and once they start to come back and start to show success, you’re going to see your bigger corporations start to pull jobs back to this country, but it’s going to take the small business people.” Wereb added, “We’re using the web to make this petition drive more effective. Those who can’t make it to the stores in the downtown district can sign it online. Peebles is free to operate their business however they like, but as Coshocton business people we cannot have another vacant building on Main Street. We want a stabilized downtown. The most salient thing that we are trying to show them (Peebles) is that they do not have a parking problem, it is entirely imaginary, and that they have more support for their store at its current location than they think.

Senior citizens in Coshocton County had the opportunity to browse the 37 different vendors at the 19th annual Senior Expo hosted by the Coshocton Village Inn and Suites. In 2010, this expo was a huge success with over 500 visitors. This year, the expo easily topped that number with 260 visitors within the first couple of hours. Senior county residents went from table to table collecting brochures, free samples, and learned about the benefits each vendor had to offer local senior citizens. “It’s to provide an opportunity for seniors to have one place to go where it doesn’t cost them anything to get in and they can find the opportunity to visit with different businesses that provide services and products for people of the 50 and over range,” said Tom Thompson, sales manager for WTNS. The Senior Expo was sponsored by WTNS Radio in conjunction with the Coshocton County Memorial Hospital and The Health Plan.

members learn their music through listening to mp3 files, learning their music by ear, large-print music for those who can use it, Braille music sheets, and through the computer by using Smart Music, where students can send their recorded music to Director Dan Kelley and he can hear and grade their progress. The band began in 2005 and is composed of about 20 students who are either blind or in some way visually impaired. Before their concert at Hopewell began, Mayor Steven Mercer presented Director Dan Kelley with two lapel pins, one with Coshocton’s City flag printed on it. Throughout their concert, the band played about 10 songs including, ‘Dynamite’, ‘Don’t Stop Believing’, ‘Hey, Jude’, ‘Let it Be’, ‘Eye of the Tiger’, ‘Sweet Georgia Brown’, and ended their concert with the Ohio State Fight Song. Director Kelley said that the band practices marching with the Ohio State University band leaders. Director Kelley said that instead of spelling out the word, ‘Ohio’ in script on the field when they often perform for the Ohio School for the Deaf, they spell out ‘Ohio’ in Braille. Bob Nicholson, who works at Hopewell, has a son, Reed, who plays in the band. “Reed became involved two years ago, and this band has given him more pleasure and a feeling of belonging than I have ever seen in his life,” he said. “He has met life-long friends and has given him a skill. Before this, he had never played an instrument besides the piano, but never played an actual wind instrument. To actually see him do it and to work with the other members is giving him tremendous self-esteem. This band does so much for so many people and I’m amazed at what they do when they come and they get in front of crowds and they just inspire so many people because it demonstrates if you just stick to it, you can literally do anything.” To learn more about the Ohio State School for the Blind, visit their Web site at www.ossb.

Then, in the silence of the night, the honorary candle lighter begins to pass the flame first to the choir and then to the audience. As each individual receives their flame from someone near them, they pass their flame along by lighting a neighbor’s candle and begin singing the first verse of Silent Night. As the light from the candles grows, so grows the music until all the candles are lit and everyone has joined in song.

It’s that time of the year when people usually start their holiday shopping. While many people will be out on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, to buy just the right gift for family and friends, there’s another movement that started last year called Small Business Saturday where people are encouraged to go out in their communities the Saturday after Thanksgiving each year and shop locally at small businesses, boosting the local economy. “The best way that we can be sure that our small businesses thrive is by shopping at our small businesses, especially on Small Business Saturday,” said Carol Remington, Executive Director of the Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce. Don’t forget that many small businesses in Coshocton County support other local organizations as well, so by shopping local, you’re also supporting other organizations in the county. “When one shops locally, they not only have the experience about supporting local businesses, but that local business will be shopping at other local businesses, and supporting local sports’ teams, and local events,” said Jim McClure, Executive Director of Roscoe Village. “It’s a win-win situation when one supports local businesses.” Small Business Saturday is always the Saturday after Thanksgiving, this year being Nov. 26. This holiday season, and throughout the upcoming year, please shop locally and support Coshocton County’s economy.

Bicentennial christmas parade brings joy downtown

By jan myeRs

On Sunday, Nov. 27 from 1 – 4 p.m., there will be a unique opportunity to visit and tour Frederickson Manor at 905 Cambridge Road in Coshocton during their Holiday Open House. The event is a celebration of the season, with area businesses showcasing holiday decorating ideas. Participating businesses include The Unusual Junction, Kiefer Florist, The Warehouse Steak N Stein, Canal Cargo, Roscoe General Store, Roma’s Gifts & Florist, House of GA Fisher, Medbery Marketplace, Liberty House, Linnet’s Flowers on the Square and more.

The Bicentennial Christmas Parade drew thousands of people downtown and had a record number of parade participants. The parade is sponsored each year by the Towne Centre Association. Hot chocolate and cookies were served by friendly volunteers to hundreds at the Courtsquare and Coshocton Christian Tabernacle youth handed out popcorn balls that were sponsored by Wood Forest Bank along the parade route. Preston Dodd (4) and Alyah Allen (6) were looking forward to the parade.

lions minstrel show all wet

The 54th annual Warsaw Lions Minstrel Show, “Water Time” held in the auditorium at River View High School this past Friday, Saturday and Sunday, provided lots of smiles, jokes and laughter. Directed by Jean Haumschild and with the ever popular Jim Bartlett as Interlocutor, the annual minstrel show raises funds for Lions Club projects throughout the community. Members of the River View Park Board served food prior to the shows to raise funds for the Warsaw Park. Dave “Bones” Woodmansee, a long time Warsaw Lions Club member, said, “I really enjoy working with the people, working with the community and seeing them all work together because they do such a nice job. Our directors are fine, fine people, they’ve brought the best talent to bear for this show. The sense of humor is appropriate, it balances everything out and it’s just a good fun time for family and friends to get out and enjoy.” When asked about some of the talent that typically fills the stage each year, Woodmansee said, “I think a lot of people enjoy coming back to their community and being able to share with their community, even if they’ve been able to

have me.” Gary Kilpatrick, current President of the Warsaw Lions Club, said, “This is a fun thing to do. The biggest thing is making the people in the audience happy. We just want people to have a good time.” Ruth Mason, who was packaging cookies along with Betty Fry, said, “We are head of candy sales and baked items, available before the show and in between. We’ve been doing this for thirty some years, as Lioness and combined with the Lions.” If you missed this year’s show, here is just one fine example of a joke from one of The End Men, in this case, Fred “Choo Choo” Wachtel, “My wife’s credit card got stolen this summer.

There’s a lot of great talent in this town, that’s for sure.

Roger Moore, Native American actor, model and By Jan myers silversmith will be demonstrating the art of making 18th century trade silver jewelry at Liberty House in Roscoe Village on Friday, Nov. 25 from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. He will be dressed in Native American period attire and share the history of the Native Americans in this region. Moore lives in Mansfield, Ohio, and describes himself as a person of ‘mixed blood’. His father is of Native American decent of the Melungeon (Mel-un-Juhn) tribe, which was part of the Eastern Woodland Indians. “Because of my Native American background and knowledge of the culture, I have had the opportunity to be in several films on both the History Channel and A&E,” he said. “Most recently, I was involved in the PBS mini-series, ‘The War that Made America’, where I played Chief Hendrick of the Mohawks.” Locally, Moore is known for his silversmithing skills and for his jewelry, which is sold at Liberty House. Becky Lowe, owner of Liberty House says she is thrilled to have Roger Moore’s items in her store. “He makes beautiful handmade copper and silver jewelry that has been very popular in the store,” she said. “I like to carry Ohio and locally-made items with this kind of high artistic value. I hope people will come to meet Roger and see and hear his fascinating history of the peoples who once lived in this region.” Plan to visit with Moore on Friday, Nov. 25, and again during the Candlelighting Saturdays in Roscoe Village Dec. 3, 10 and 17, from Noon - 8 p.m. Liberty House is located at 416 N. Whitewoman Street in Roscoe Village. For more information, contact Liberty House at 622-4601.
