PUBLISHERS statement COSHOCTON COUNTY BEACON is published weekly,

season a real “Miracle in Coshocton County”. As you have the opportunity to drive or walk around Main and surrounding streets, Roscoe Village, The Downtowner Plaza, travel in the Warsaw or West Lafayette areas, or anywhere else in our county, take a moment to Mark forTune reflect not on what we have lost in the past several years; but on what we have gained. There are several new businesses located in the various blocks of Main Street – The Downtowner Plaza, Roscoe Village, Second Street – and other locations throughout Coshocton County. Most of these are locally owned by entrepreneurs that are working hard to make a living for their family and supporting our community. These businesses deserve a shopping trip this holiday season – you may or may not find that treasure you are looking for but at least you have given a locally owned business the chance to serve your needs. And I think that is really all that each business is looking for – just an opportunity to compete for your shopping dollars. Local businesses deserve that chance. After all, these are the same businesses that people in our community count on for donations to charitable events, benefit auctions, school functions and fundraisers, civic group functions, the county fair and

countless others. It is doubtful that out of town businesses will make a similar contribution to the youth soccer league, baseball team sponsorship, charity auction or otherwise. Of course, there are always exceptions to that rule, but generally speaking, you get my drift. Now, before you say, ‘I can’t find what I need in Coshocton”, we understand and acknowledge that fact. You can’t find everything here, but have you tried? Of course you can’t find everything – but I would bet you will find more unique and specialty gifts – let alone the staples – in our community than you may realize. I guess the statement here is, just give the local folks a chance. And if you don’t see something you are searching for, let the owner know. Thanks in advance for shopping locally this year. This issue of The Coshocton County Beacon went to press on Friday, Nov. 20, before the Redskins and Generals played in their respective regional final games. And before The Buckeyes played that big game up north. Hope they won. And regardless of how the results ended up for the Redskins and Generals it is a glorious season. Your support of The Beacon at the 50 Plus expo was fantastic! Thanks for all of your kind words and expressions of “great job”. It is appreciated. While we have made much progress in the past year and a half, we know there is much more that we can do to make The Coshocton County Beacon even more of a truly positive asset for our community. But we are thankful for what we are and for what you, our advertisers and readers, have helped The Beacon become. Thank You.

evening of poetry and music at Tim Horton’s. “We’ve been doing this for about three years now. Mark Hersman of Mansfield helped us get set up. Our first get-togethers were at Serenity Tea House and then we were at the Pomerene Center and then eight months ago moved here. It’s a good fit for us,” said group member Sally Kinkade. The evening began with Scott Mooney introducing local musician Bill Gross who sang “Go Rest High Upon That Mountain.” He was followed by Mark Stoll of Columbus who played guitar and entertained the group with two compositions of his own, “I Got the Blues Again” and “Stick It To The Man”, a song he wrote about his boss. Writer’s group member Sharon Mooney read her poem “The Homecoming”, based on the biblical tale of Abraham and Issac and them played “Sarah’s Song”, on the keyboard. It was a piece she had composed to accompany her poem. Scott Mooney then introduced the evening’s featured poet Mark Jordan who lives at Gambier. Mark is a reporter for the Mount Vernon News, who is also a playwright. Two of his plays, Ceely and Phoebe have been performed at Malabar Farm State Park and his new play about Louis Bromfield will debut there in 2010. Mark opened his presentation with the spiritual, “Going Over Jordan” and then explained that his first passion is poetry which he began writing at age 12 while growing up in Shelby, Ohio. He then read a poem about his hometown and then moved on to a variety of others based on his love of mythology, nature and history. “River Roads”, was a piece inspired by a recent trip home from Coshocton and included all three local rivers, the Muskingum, Walhonding and the Tuscarawas. He also added a humorous touch when he read a movie review of a movie made by a Knox County filmmaker, entitled “Hillbilly Bob Zombie.” “This film will only be famous for how many groups it offends and is a good example of how not to make a movie,” said Jordan. He also read an excerpt from his forthcoming satirical book, “1776 and All That: A Complete History of the United States”. When he finished, there was an open mic session where anyone could read.

The exhibit features a wide variety of music machines, vinyl records and cylinders originating from the late 19th to early 20th Century. Included in this display are music boxes, some small enough to fit in the hand, while others definitely fit into the furniture category. Also featured are handcranked organettes that work by cranking a paper strip through the mechanism and a unique and varied collection of vintage phonographs, ranging from portable ones that were a favorite in the trenches of WWII or one that resembles a camera when closed, to those sporting the familiar image of a large amplification horn. Also displayed in JHM’s Golden Gallery are early records by Emile Berliner, wax and celluloid cylinders by Thomas Edison, as well as his competitors, and a variety of other musical “soft ware” such as paper rolls and strips, wood cobs and metal and paper disks. Other fascinating phonographic artifacts like “picture” records, vibrant circular images of the performer that are actually playable record disks, postcard records, mailable cards which could be placed on the turntable to listen to, and various related paraphernalia are showcased in the exhibit. article continued on page 10

coshocton community choir to perform “The Marvel of this night” christmas concert composition, Mary’s Little Boy Chile, a “Since 1988 we’ve commissioned ‘The Marvel of this Night’ is the theme of the Coshocton Community Choir’s Festival Christmas Concert on Sunday, Dec. 6, at 3:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Over 200 musicians from throughout central Ohio will be performing at Coshocton High School’s McKinley Auditorium. Musical selections during the 90-minute concert span the centuries as the choirs, under the direction of Charles R. Snyder, perform a mix of sacred and secular choral music. A particular piece of music is often the inspiration for a concert theme, and according to Snyder, that is true with this year’s Christmas concert. “Carl Schalk’s Before the Marvel of This Night uses an imaginative text by Jaroslav Vajda which identifies three gifts of Christmas—peace, endless bliss, and love,” stated Snyder. “Those gifts gave me some ideas for songs to include in the concert. But beyond that, I thought the theme would spark ideas for the narration as we attempt to recapture the ‘marvel’ of this timeless story.” As always, the concert includes many musical genres, and compositions from different countries. This year’s concert includes several carols that have a Caribbean flavor including Jester Hairston’s original

West Indian carol, The Virgin Mary Had a Baby Boy, and a piece for the choir women, He Came Down from Cameroon. The concert features the 100-voice adult choir, the Coshocton Children’s Choir, the Coshocton Youth Chorale, the Roscoe Brass Ensemble and piano accompanists Dickie Barrick and Mark Wagner. “Leslie Dawson’s Asbury Handbell Choir from Grace United Methodist Church will be our special guests,” said Snyder. “And Tom McLeish will add percussion magic.” The choirs will also sing a number of wellknown carols and the audience will be invited to sing with the choirs on some pieces. “All three choirs will combine to sing Howard Helvey’s colorful and rhythmic setting of the Sussex Carol, On Christmas Night All Christians Sing,” said Snyder. “It’s a glorious sound!” “The Reverend Richard Hoover, retired pastor of Roscoe United Methodist Church, is writing the narration for this year’s concert,” added Snyder. “In all, about 225 people - singers, instrumentalists, and narrators - come together to present this concert. It’s become an annual Coshocton Christmas tradition.

Tom Kulewicz, my Columbus artist friend, to create a cover design that uniquely expresses the theme,” continued Snyder. “We think his creation for ‘The Marvel of This Night’ is one of his most inspired. Jeff Gill and his Ridgewood art classes work diligently to transfer Tom’s vision to large flats that will flank the concert stage.” All three choirs were founded and are conducted by Charles R. Snyder, who is highly respected throughout the state. He is also the conductor of the 200-voice AllOhio Youth Choir that performs each year at the Ohio State Fair. The Coshocton Community Choir is now is it 39th season, and has commissioned several arrangements from well-known composers. Tickets for ‘The Marvel of this Night’ Festival Concert are $8 for adults and $5 for students and are available at the door or by calling Business Manager, Lee Bown at (740) 622-3960. Tickets are also available from these outlets: Liberty Lady in Roscoe Village; Good News Bookstore, Buehlers, and Marilyn’s Natural Foods in Coshocton; Home Loan Savings Bank in West Lafayette and Baker’s Foods in Newcomerstown.

He gave a brief introduction to the company and then the group split in two and took a tour of the factory. Douglas took one group and Jackie Darr took another and explained how

PaTrioTic Pride Jackie cabe, employee at annin, instructs Felicia lane, youth leadership member, in the art of flag-making. Cabe’s goal is to sew the ends of 1800 flags a day. Lane commented that it would take her much longer to do cabe’s job. Beacon photo

flags are made at their facilities. The highlight of the tour was when Douglas showed his group a flag on display that was made in 1896, which had been found in New York. Of course, it only had 48 stars. While touring the storage area, Douglas explained that an average lifespan for a flag is 6 months. Annin will dispose of old flags properly, but Douglas prefers that people contact the VFW, Army, or Boy Scouts because they do a ceremony and will dispose of the flag with honor. Before leaving Annin, Douglas gave everyone a free flag and then it was off to Smurfit Stone Container. Once there, Smurfit provided the group with Domino’s Pizza, chips, cookies, and a drink. While enjoying lunch, everyone watched a video on Smurfit Container and how the business started. After the video, the students were given a brief history lesson about the factory. Smurfit Stone Container has been making paper ever since the Civil War in 1861. The factory burned down six months later and then was rebuilt in 1863. It has been operating every day since. Then, hard hats were administered and everyone put on safety glasses and ear plugs before touring the factory. The group reassembled in the conference room at around 12:30 p.m. “I really liked Annin,” said Michael Meyers, member of the Youth Leadership Group, “It was very interesting to see how they make flags. I also didn’t realize the grain company was that big, so that was interesting to see.” The event ended at around 1 p.m.


Coshocton County Youth Leadership explored local industrial and agricultural businesses on Wednesday, Nov. 18 as part of their monthly class. “I want them to learn about industry and agriculture,” said Donna Meyers, Director of Leadership of Coshocton County, “A lot of people forget that agriculture is an industry. So I hope all the kids learn a lot about different businesses in Coshocton.” The day started at 8 a.m. at Woodbury Outfitters. They were greeted by owner Joe Miller, and he gave them a brief history of how his business was started by selling boats out of his basement to owning a successful thriving business. Miller gave the kids a tour through his shop including the storage room and the techno hunt unit, which is a hunting simulator. People can choose to hunt bear, deer, moose, or small game. “I want these kids to realize that there’s an opportunity out there for everyone,” said Miller, “They just have to find their niche.” The group left Woodbury at 8:30 and travelled to Coshocton Grain. Donna Meyers, Art Saylor, Board Member, and Teresa Bradford provided transportation. While munching on donuts and juice provided by Donna Meyers, the group filled out Thank You cards to recent sponsors: The Coshocton Rotary and the Simpson Family Foundation. Afterwards, Randy Hutchinson and Rhoda Crown gave a demonstration on weighing grain and determining the price based on the quality of the grain.





Thankful for the Giving By Jan Myers

County has many giving individuals and organizations and there are thousands of local residents who are truly thankful for their services. Here’s a look at a few of those programs. Follow your heart, and give where you feel led this holiday season. Salvation Army This is the third Christmas for Captain John and Tricia Cornelius to serve in Coshocton and they feel blessed to be here. “Coshocton is one of the most giving and caring communities we have ever been in,” said Capt. Tricia. “A lot of new people are coming and asking for help at the Salvation Army for the first time this year. We believe that even though things are tough, we will get what God wants us to have and we will be able to make that work.” The Salvation Army is a United Way Agency. “Approximately 1/3 of our budget comes from United Way funds,” said Capt. Tricia. “We also raise money this time of year with the kettles and they are all out now in most of the usual places. All of the money raised from the kettle collections goes toward feeding people in the area.” The kettle collections will take place through December 24. They are always in need of volunteers to help with the ringing. “Many times groups will volunteer to ring at the kettles and even challenge each other to see which group can raise the most money,” said Capt Tricia. Contact the Salvation Army Youth Pastor, Brennen Hinzman at 622-0971 to volunteer for the kettles. “We take volunteers of all ages throughout the year for our programs,” she said. “Some of the youth clubs help us package the food for the Christmas distribution each year. We are always in need of help with packaging and distributing the food.” The Salvation Army Christmas Castle Project will be getting underway later this week. This project assists Coshocton children with winter clothing. “In 2008, we assisted around 600 children through G IN ! PT TS E C IEN AC AT W P NO EW N

Christmas Castle and another 100 through our other holiday programs,” said Capt. Tricia. “We are looking at an even greater number this year with more than 800 children needing assistance, representing over 600 families. “It’s very hard for me to see this,” she continued. “We meet with every person who applies for assistance and it has really affected me especially this year. I am surprised at how many families are dealing with cancer, loss of jobs and loss of spouses. The needs are so great that it is hard to decide who needs help the most.” Capt. Tricia feels that there is no doubt that Coshocton will pull through which will allow the Salvation Army to help everyone who needs assistance this year. “God is good and the people here are very caring,” she added. “We can truly use a little of everything – volunteers for the kettles, volunteers to go shopping with the children from the Christmas Castle on December 9 and 10, food for the food pantry, hat & mittens, toys, toiletries—you name it we need it.” She says it is surprising how many children in our community don’t yet have winter coats and that every year the hats and mittens are the first items they go through at the Salvation Army. Many organizations, churches, businesses and individuals are helping by getting involved in the ‘Adopt a Family’ program that was started two years ago. “They buy gifts for the children in that family, food or anything else they want to give,” said Capt. Tricia. “We have one church group that adopts 100 kids each year.” The deadline to adopt a family is prior to December 21 since that is the distribution day. Contact the Salvation Army to get involved. The Salvation Army actually meets needs throughout the year and can always use assistance with their clothing room and food pantry year-round. “We’re spending between $6,000 and $8,000 a month for food to take care of the needs,” explained Capt. Tricia. “It is becoming very difficult to meet the

demand for food. Our pantry is pretty bare right now. But we have so many generous people who bring in food and contributions and we hope that continues.” Capt. Tricia stresses that it is important to give to all the area food pantries since not any one of them can meet all the needs. “All year long we are always welcoming donations of food and toiletries as well as financial contributions and volunteers,” she said. “It is true that there are still homeless people living in our community. We try to help them out in any way we can.” To volunteer or contribute to the many Salvation Army projects including their youth program, food pantry, clothing room and general assistance, contact them at (740) 622-0971 or (740) 622-2386 or send checks to Salvation Army, 219 N. 4th St., Coshocton, OH 43812. “We are truly thankful for all the support from the community in the past and know we will get what we need from them this year as well,” stated Capt. Tricia. Coshocton County Fire Fighters Toy Chest The Coshocton County Fire Fighters Toy Chest is coordinated by Lisa Wilson and she says her entire family has been involved with this toy drive for many years. “If it wasn’t for my sister-in-law, I don’t know what I would do,” said Wilson. “I really appreciate all the help I get from all my family and friends to make this a success each year.” Last year the Fire Fighters Toy Chest provided toys for close to 700 kids and Wilson estimates the numbers will be similar this year, probably close to 750. ‘We have already started receiving donations of both money and new toys,” she said. ‘We really have such a wonderful support from the community. Even last year when things were so bad people really pulled through.” Wilson says that donations of new unwrapped toys and monetary contributions can be dropped off at the City Fire Department, the Walhonding Valley Fire Dept., McDonald’s, Dollar Tree, Dollar General and the Coshocton Dairy Queen by December 14. Donation cans for monetary contributions are located at these locations as well as and at NAPA in Coshocton. Wrapping paper and tape are also welcome donations. “All of these businesses and the fire departments are so helpful,” said Wilson. “We have a great support system with all of the fire departments helping with The Toy Chest.” Checks can also be sent to the Coshocton County Fire Fighters Association - CCFFA, P.O. Box 158, Warsaw, OH 43844. For more information, contact Wilson at (740) 824-5046. Nellie Open Pantry Food Pantry Open Pantry Nellie was started 6 ½ years ago by John and Sharon Kirch, pastors of God’s Eternal Love Fellowship in Nellie. They say they are very grateful for all the help the food pantry receives from other area churches, organizations and individuals. The Nellie Food Pantry distributes food once a month. “Last week we did our distribution for November and it was the largest number we have ever had,” said Sharon. “We had 671 individuals from 210 families that we gave food to. We have seen the numbers growing steadily. There are many new people each month along with the regulars who

New Life Ministries Community Outreach Dinners and Community Food Pantry This is the seventh year for New Life Ministries to serve their Outreach Dinners on Thanksgiving and Christmas Days. They serve hundreds of individuals on each of those holidays with over 100 volunteers typically needed to do so. Last year they served or delivered 550 Thanksgiving meals and nearly 600 Christmas dinners. This year’s numbers are expected to be similar. The Thanksgiving Dinner will be served Thanksgiving Day from 12 noon until 2:30 p.m. “We will also be delivering meals beginning at 11:00 a.m.,” said Pastor Mark Granger with New Life Ministries. “If anyone would like a meal delivered, they can call even on Thanksgiving Day from 9:00 a.m. until noon.” Granger says that volunteers are also needed to assist with the serving and delivering, so if anyone would like to help, they can contact the church or stop in. They could still use donations of turkeys and hams for the upcoming Christmas dinner. Last year they went through 82 turkeys and 39 hams for both of those dinners. To provide yearlong assistance, the food pantry was started at New Life Ministries in 2003. They currently provide 650 to over 700 people each month with food. In 2008, the food pantry gave out 203,251 pounds of food at a cost of nearly $40,000 and an additional 111,565 pounds of produce. 2009 has seen a similar need. Just in October 2009 alone, Granger says over 660 people received food through the food pantry supplying a minimum of 11 meals per person. “It costs us about $3,000 per month to supply all the food pantry needs,” he said. “We are able to make our dollars go much farther by purchasing through the Mid-Ohio Food Bank, so although we appreciate donations of food, financial contributions can purchase a greater amount of food for our needs. However, we appreciate everything we get. I tell folks that nothing you give is too small or too big.” Granger says he, the church and the volunteers are grateful for all the support from the many local businesses and individuals. “We even have food recipients help out by volunteering their time with the food pantry,” stated Granger. “So many people have been coming in crying, who are losing their homes and they don’t have any food. We take care of them however we can.” The food pantry also takes financial contributions from organizations, churches, businesses, groups and individuals and Granger says they can always use more volunteers to help with the food pantry. Donations can be made to New Life Ministries Church at 727 S. 7th St. by contacting them at 740622-2181.

Agents Realty and Auction Service Toys for Kids Project Helping local kids at Christmas is something Agents Realty and Auction Service has been doing for the past twelve years. “It’s our auction attendees that really make this happen,” said Mary Mason. “Paul Cochran is the dealer who brings the new toys each year to sell at the auctions.” A special Christmas auction is held each year the week before Thanksgiving and the proceeds from that auction help to purchase the new toys. “We have already had several donations toward our Toys for Kids project,” said Mason. “This is really a community project. Each Friday in December –the 4th, 11th and 18th, we will have special toy auctions where patrons can buy these new toys and contribute to the collection boxes.” Mason says people can also bring in new toys or make financial contributions by dropping them by the office. The deadline for the toys is December 19. Sheri Fortune says they coordinate with local agencies such as Hopewell School and Job and Family Services to find the children who need the toys. “We deliver the toys to Hopewell School and the gifts are sent home for the children there,” she said. “Then what we have remaining we contribute to Job and Family Services for the children there. We also drop off toys at the Fire Department for their toy drive.”

“We try to provide four or five gifts per child, typically for at least 100 children,” continued Fortune. “Students from the juvenile court diversion program help us wrap the gifts.” If you want to help in some way, you can attend one of the auctions to buy new toys for the project. The toy auctions are held on Fridays, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the auction house located at 23024 County Road 621. You can also drop off new toys or monetary donations at the office. “This is definitely a community activity and we are very thankful to everyone who comes to the auctions, makes contributions and supports the project,” said Mason. For more information on the Toys for Kids, project contact Agents Realty and Auction Service at (740) 622-0700.

Toys for Tots Toys for Tots will once again be collecting new toys for distribution to children in Coshocton County this Christmas. Christi Olinger is the local coordinator and she says they are collecting new toys at various drop-off sites throughout the county including the real estate offices in the city of Coshocton, Big Lots and Pearl Valley Cheese. “If you or your organization has a large amount of toys, we can also arrange to pick them up for you,” said Olinger. Olinger says that last year Toys for Tots provided toys for approximately 200 Coshocton County children. This year they already have requests for more than 180 kids so she is certain the numbers will be much higher than last year. “The Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation gave a corporate donation of $5,700 worth of toys and Toys R Us has contributed a corporate donation of $1,600,” said Olinger. “Our local Big Lots gives us a 15% discount on toys purchased there, so our dollars buy a lot of toys.” Olinger says that Toys for Tots has been collecting toys and funds all year long. Local businesses are

holding fundraisers and toy drives are underway. “The Fresno Farmers Market vendors raised $530 for Toys for Tots and collected about 20 toys, which was a great way to get us started,” she said. “One of the vendors at that market, Dave Warren, donated all of his October profits to this cause. There are also donation cans at Arby’s, Crowtown Pizza, Dominoes Pizza and other locations throughout the county.” Olinger would like to challenge groups, schools, businesses, realtors, banks and other organizations to do some type of fundraiser for Toys for Tots. She says she can take financial donations right up until Christmas and new unwrapped toys up until December 15. “The students from the Alternative School helped me move large amounts of toys to the storage area where we are keeping them at Jacobs Vanaman Insurance and Realty Office,” she said. “The students will also be assisting with packaging the toys for distribution.” “The food pantry in Nellie is my main source for collecting names of children in the county with the need for the toys,” explained Olinger. “But people can also contact me directly.” Anyone who wants to contribute new unwrapped toys can drop them off at the above mentioned locations or to Olinger at Peddicord Rice at 838 S. 2nd Street in Coshocton, or contact her at (740) 2020150 to arrange pick up of large quantities of toys. Olinger says she works closely with the local firefighter’s toy chest to make sure all the kids in the area are taken care of. The deadline for toy requests for children is December 9. “One thing I want to make sure everyone understands is that all the monetary and toy donations stay right here in Coshocton County,” she said. “One big need we have this year is for a Marine to assist us. Brian Hawkins was the Marine who assisted us last year and he has been deployed to Iraq. So if there is a Marine who would like to help us this year, please contact me.” Send financial contributions to Toys for Tots, C/O Christi Olinger, Peddicord Rice, 838 S. 2nd St., Coshocton.

need assistance. Many of these people are working two jobs yet still qualify for the free food.” They order their food supplies from Mid-Ohio Food Bank. The monthly needs require 12,000 to 15,000 pounds of food. “We try to give out enough for 15 meals per month per person,” said Sharon. “We are only required to provide nine meals.” Any help the pantry receives, Sharon says, is truly a blessing. “Roscoe United Methodist Church, Prairie Chapel, Gospel Hill, River View Ministerial Association, Nellie United Methodist, Dutch Run and New Life Ministries have all helped us greatly,” she added. “Contributions from the Coshocton County Board of Realtors, the Amvets, Tiverton Homemakers, Interim Health Care, Colgate-Palmolive, the local granges and many others, have made what we do possible.” “Many people don’t realize that we also need the taxable items that food stamps can’t buy such as personal items, toiletries, laundry soap, bar soap, toilet paper, feminine products and deodorant,” said Sharon. “We set up four long tables where recipients can choose these kinds of items after the have collected their food items.” Sharon feels that the work their food pantry and others are doing for the community is such a blessing. “I am guessing that just between New Life Ministries and our food pantry, we are feeding about 5 % of Coshocton County,” she said. The financial contributions are always welcome. Sharon says it is a common misconception that food pantries don’t have to pay for the food they give out, but that isn’t true. “We spend at least $1,200 to $1,500 each month for our food products,” she said. “But we are able to purchase the food at very reasonable costs through the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. Every cent contributed goes to the pantry to serve those in Coshocton County. All we do is from what people donate either financially or in supplies.” She said that sometimes people will even donate meats and that they will also take processed deer mea. Any hunters who wish to contribute deer meat can call for the required processing details. “Last year the Farm Bureau donated deer meat and it was greatly appreciated,” she said. Sharon says they are so fortunate to have plenty of volunteer help and that many of those volunteering are the food recipients themselves.

townships of Bedford, Jefferson, Monroe, New Castle, Perry, Pike, Tiverton, and Washington should have received extra mail this month. Ballots have been mailed out by the Farm Service Agency (FSA). These ballots will allow eligible voters to select who they want to be their representative to the FSA County Committee for the next 3 years. The county is divided up into 3 sectioned Local Administrative Areas (LAA), with each LAA holding an election in alternating years. This helps ensure a diverse Committee that gives a voice to everyone across the county, and not just in certain areas. For voters in these western townships for this year’s election, ballots were mailed out the first week of November. Eligible voters need to be at least 18 years of age, and be eligible to participate in FSA programs. That includes either owning agricultural acreage, or farming ground for someone else. Actual participation in FSA programs is not required to be an eligible voter. Eligibility is also not based on farm size, but rather based on farm use. Even small acreages used for agricultural purposes, such as making hay for livestock, will qualify the associated producers and landowners to be eligible to vote in this election.

hunting & outdoor


t reads almost like a comedy. Joe and Angie Miller’s start of the famed Woodbury Outfitters business began with a half-hearted attempt to make a few bucks on a pair of Rocky boots. Boy, did they. Hunting and fishing had always been a passion of Joe Miller’s. But after graduating high school, he embarked on a retailing career that included twenty years at Buehler’s – first at the Wooster/Milltown store and later in Coshocton. “I guess you could say that I left one retailing business to start another one.” He describes how

By ginger reiss it all began. “Shortly after our move to Coshocton, my wife and I took a drive to the Rocky boot outlet in Nelsonville one Sunday afternoon,” Miller explains. He needed a new pair of hunting boots. “Later I noticed that those same boots were selling on eBay for twice what I paid! So I sold them. The next weekend we went back and I purchased ten pairs!” Wife Angie laughs, “In very short order we went from several pairs of boots to an entire truckload of them!” Sunday evenings were earmarked for boot-packing and shipping operations in the Miller’s home basement. Within a year or two the fledgling online business began looking for additional storage capacity. When a 1500-square foot property became available off State Route 541 - the site of a former gun shop, now out of business – the Millers jumped at the opportunity. “We knew that there were no locally-owned full-service outfitters here in town and that most hunters drove 40 miles or more to get to one. It was definitely a hole that needed to be filled,” husband Joe explains. With Woodbury’s public hunting grounds – the largest in the state – so close in proximity, the name seemed a natural. Woodbury Outfitters was officially born in August of 2002. Having an official retail storefront gave the

joe and anGie Miller couple the ability to order product from a host of wholesale suppliers; so they quickly expanded both inventory and floor space, which more than doubled within four years. They began carrying guns and ammunition, bows and bow-hunting accessories, clothing and ancillary supplies, in addition to footwear. As the business grew, the family needed to make a choice. In June of 2008 – less than six years after Woodbury opened its doors to the public – Miller decided to leave his job as manager of Buehler’s and devote himself fulltime to the business. “It was a little scary at first, but the opportunity and timing seemed right,” Miller says of that personally historic decision. Between local hunters and those coming into the county to seek its reputable “big bucks,” he and his wife knew there would be a stable market in Coshocton. When Woodbury Outfitters made their latest leap of faith in August of this year, moving into the former Big Bear site on South Second Street –

offers equipment and guidance to local high school teams, providing regional and national competitive events to build skill and confidence in bow target shooting. The Millers say they pride themselves in being inventive with their passion. “Our goals now are to continue to be creative in the experiences we offer our customers,” says Angie. To that end, she and Joe travel and explore new options through both hunts and industry events that help keep them abreast of what’s available to sport hunting enthusiasts. The couple recently returned from west Texas, where they participated in the Pursuit channel’s Living in the Wild television program. “We did an elk and a whitetail hunt for the show, which will air next fall,” says Joe. “It was really a unique opportunity for Angie and me!” On that hunt, Angie landed a 7-by-6 elk that scored a 377. Against Boone & Crockett’s record score of 412...Not bad! The Millers look forward to continuing their inventiveness in responding to their customers’ needs. And to think it all started by listing a single pair of Rocky boots on eBay.

all 43,000 square feet of it – Miller’s dream truly became a family affair. “Our oldest son, Matt, helped with painting the interior and in putting the shelving units together and our youngest son, Logan, helped by pricing merchandise,” laughs Angie. Even Joe’s dad, Pete, and mom, Anna - who also have recently moved to the area – became involved. Pete Miller runs the online storefront, which the Millers say contribute substantially to the business’ bottom line. “Pete has really been pivotal in managing the internet sales side of our business,” says Angie. “We all definitely work hard,” says Joe. “I’d say that watching it all come together as a family has been pretty special.” The store, now with 45 regular employees, carries a myriad of items for any outdoor sporting enthusiast. But shopping for products is only one aspect of the “Woodbury” experience. In addition to an in-house 35-yard archery range, customers can try a Techno-Hunt on for size – a simulated bow-hunt experience where you use your own bow and arrows, affixed with a blunttip cap, which records both location and force of hit. Customers can select from several themes including a traditional whitetail deer hunt and an African safari, among others. Woodbury is also interested in responding to the needs of our community’s younger hunting enthusiasts. Presently they are exploring introducing the county’s first National Archery in Schools Program (NASP). The program
