The Coshocton community comes through again! If you were listening to WTNS Radio during the past two weeks, you certainly were aware that the annual Christmas Castle project was headed for trouble. As late as last Friday, the final day of the campaign, contributions Mark forTune were running well behind schedule. But lo and behold, in something akin to a real Christmas miracle for our community, the funds exceeded the goal of over $42,000. The people of Coshocton County deserve to be proud of this effort. There are so many that are in need this season – and that need will extend beyond the spirit of Christmas. The United Way campaign is trying to wrap up their annual drive and is also running about 10% behind schedule. While that may not seem like a significant amount – it amounts to $35,000. You can read the article in this edition of The Beacon from director Amy Hasseman, which explains the need much better than we can here. Basically, something will go wanting without the campaign reaching the

Memorial Service

A memorial service for Claire R. Leech will be held at The Presbyterian Church, 142 N. 4th Street, Coshocton, OH, at noon on Saturday, December 12, 2009. Calling hours will be for one hour prior to service. Reverend Jonathan T. Carlisle will officiate. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Claire’s memory to the Children’s Section, Coshocton Public Library, 655 Main Street, Coshocton, OH 43812, Alzheimer’s Association, 23 S. Park Pl., Newark, OH 43055 or Hospice of Coshocton County, Inc., 230 S. 4th St., Coshocton, OH 43812. 0023_120909

mark@coshoctoncountybeacon.com goal of $350,000. As Hasseman says, the United Way in Coshocton County provides funds for year round needs to over 20 local agencies. Without these funds, many of these agencies may be forced to reduce their services or raise their own funds. This would all come at a time when these services are so desperately needed. Now is the time for the people of Coshocton County to reach just a little bit deeper – to put this in perspective – the amount needed at this time would represent just one dollar for every man, woman and child living in Coshocton County. What’s with all these crows? Okay, I know that our nickname is “Crowtown” but my gosh. Is there a crow hunting season? What a nuisance. Maybe there is a grant somewhere that we can get to reduce this population? There seems to be a grant for just about everything else right now. A sad note is to see the destruction of the former Pretty Products plant. Just like GE, this factory allowed many in Coshoctons to raise a family on a decent wage, send their kids to school and hopefully sock a little away for retirement. Do we have jobs to replace these? I would say yes and no to answer that question. Several new businesses have opened, or expanded, including Hickory Heaven, Second Chance Furniture and Woodbury Outfitters in recent months. And Organic Technologies purchasing the former JII building has to be a real success story. These businesses are all providing gainful employment for people in our community. We urge you to support these locally owned businesses. There could be more at stake than we realize. Reflecting a bit on the sports scene, wasn’t it just last year when the pundits said, “We’ll be hard pressed to see another undefeated team in college football?” Yea, right. How many are there this year? Alabama, Texas, Boise State and Cincinnati come to my mind. At least our beloved Buckeyes will be playing on a more traditional date, January 1 in the Rose Bowl. I know where I’ll be at 4:30 pm on January 1. Get the snacks ready! And I hope The Buckeyes can overcome the loss of Evan Turner for 8 weeks, who suffered two broken vertebrae in a game last week. The 6’ 7” junior guard was on fire and at the time the number one player in college basketball. The young man should be back on the hardwood in February. Go Bucks!

Please help!: Local United Way campaign in final push Instead of winding down, the United Way of Coshocton County is doing one final push to make up a potential shortfall of $35,000. “Campaign time is almost over and we are projecting a major shortfall,” said Amy Hasseman, United Way’s Executive Director. “This is to be expected given the bad economy and high unemployment rate. Add to that the number of people fearful about the future, and you’ve got a recipe for reduced charitable giving. This isn’t good, especially considering that now is precisely the time when those most in need, need help the most!” United Way estimates that roughly 90% of its revenues come from residents giving via payroll deduction at area workplace campaigns and corporate giving. “Many of our large companies are finishing up their campaign right now,” said Hasseman. “We would like to encourage them to give what they can.” Any businesses that have packets ready to be picked up can call the United Way

office at 622-4567. To date, the United Way has raised $175,250 or half of their goal and is projecting final results without an additional effort to be around $320,000. “It’s not the number that’s important,” said Hasseman. “It’s what it represents. It’s a family that’s turned away for help when they need it most. If we take no action, we will have to cut funding to vital social service programs during these difficult times. The number one reason people don’t give is because they are not asked. We are asking you now. If you have considered giving and haven’t yet, we would very appreciative of any gift.” A dollar a week goes a long way at the United Way. $50 could provide dinner for 2 nights for families seeking a safe home at the Family Violence Shelter. $50 could provide food from the pantry for a family for several days. Programs supported by the United Way operate 365 day a year, so this is not just a holiday fix. “We would like to thank everyone who has

given to this campaign,” said Hasseman, “We are especially grateful for every dollar we get.” Some companies like SanCast, Coshocton Hospital, AEP, Kraft and Hilscher-Clarke have exceeded what they gave last year. Many with fewer employees than a year ago. “As United Way Board President and a Budget Allocation member that helps to determine how donations are spent, I can say from experience that it’s no fun at all deciding that a partner agency won’t get the funding needs,” said Beccy Porteus. “Simply put, the people most in need will suffer most. Important life-changing programs will lose vital funding. From basic recreation programs to complex efforts dealing with family violence, basic needs and the children in our community. Residents may choose to make a personal gift by sending it to United Way of Coshocton County, P.O. Box 84, Coshocton, OH 43812 or you can give online at www.coshoctonunitedway. org or by calling the office at 622-4567.

american red cross provides chance for little heroes to make a big difference Elementary-age students at Union School in Coshocton County will have the opportunity to help save lives through a special American Red Cross event that’s just their size. The Pint Size Hero program is a community service project developed by the Red Cross to introduce children to the importance of donating blood. The program encourages students to volunteer at a blood drive sponsored by their school, and to invite parents, guardians and other adults to give blood on their behalf. “It’s one-part educational, and one-part community service,” said Brad Fuller, Donor

Recruitment Representative for the Central Ohio Blood Region of the Red Cross. “Kids learn about blood and about volunteerism, and about how they can make a difference in other people’s lives.” The upcoming Pint Size Hero Blood Drive will be Tuesday, Dec. 15 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Union Elementary School. For more information, or to find other American Red Cross blood drives near you, call 1-800-GIVE LIFE or visit www.bloodsaveslives. org. To schedule an appointment to donate please

If any area football fan would be asked about the Coshocton and Ridgewood teams this year, one reoccurring response throughout the county may be that they are “proud” of our local athletes. Such is also the case with Coshocton head coach Marty Arganbright. His team advanced to the state semi finals this football season and were crowned the regional champion, which is the highest honor bestowed upon the team to date. Arganbright is pleased with the greatest feat accomplished so far by the Redskins. “This is the best team in the history of Coshocton football,” says Arganbright. In 1999, Coshocton reached the regional finals where they were defeated by YoungstownMooney and hitting the same mark in 2003, the Skins were beaten by Bellaire. Though not having an undefeated regular season, Coshocton got a little help from other Division IV teams to help place them in the playoffs, though this is not discrediting any of the talent on the team. A handful of players broke and set new records and reached milestones of great heights. Graduating Senior Layton Graves was recently named a first-team All-Ohio offensive lineman for the Redskins and Senior Marcus Johnston made the first team as a running back as well.

Football helped me mature as an athlete and as a person. It helped show me that sometimes in life you are gonna get thrown into situations which you’re not gonna be the best one but you have to believe in yourself and persevere and great things will happen.” Senior teammate Marcus Johnston says he has gained “more experience and confidence” over the years, and making it to the state semi finals was a combined effort. “We worked hard, stuck together and had motivation,” he says. The Redskins were earlier predicted by some to have a 6-4 regular season. Losses this year were to ECOL teams New Philadelphia and Dover. Arganbright speaks highly of his senior players who were vital to others on the team. He says his team “prepared better than any team we have had here. They continued to do the little things each week to improve and get ready for the next game. This is a direct reflection of our excellent senior leadership.” Fourteen individual and team school records were set this year alone. Arganbright attributes the humble attitude which encompassed the team a component that led to the record achievements. “There were several key players that sacrificed personal glory in order to do what’s best for the team, Arganbright said. “This is one of the main reasons we had the success this season.” “The only thing I did this year was my job,” says Graves, “I didn’t do anything over-thetop…the whole team did their individual jobs and that’s what made us so tough.” Though the team fell to Kettering Alter in Proud to have served the people of Coshocton and our surrounding communities for over 113 years!

By dianne Merrill accomplish. “I said at the beginning of this season that this team had the ability to be one of the best teams we have ever had here at Coshocton. We set our expectations high and the good thing about this group … they were able to meet those expectations.” Graves and Johnston take with them some memorable moments and those can’t be taken away. “Mine would be when we played Amanda Clearcreek and they went to kick a game-tying field goal. I rushed the kicker and fell on my face… Zach Shaw picked me up and said they missed it…WE won.” Johnston says “Beating Ironton meant everything because that meant we made the state semi-finals.” Arganbright says this year can be used as a learning tool that adversity can be overcome. “Anytime you raise the bar or advance to a level nobody has ever been before, that measuring stick automatically increases. All future teams that we have will now have something to shoot for as far as improving our program.” During the exciting weeks of the playoff games for two county teams, school colors of orange and black, red and black, or gold and black did not matter. As community members rallied around the Generals on Friday night, the same occurred on Saturday for Coshocton. Arganbright said it was great to see former players, students, or old teammates showing up and supporting the Redskins. “That made me feel good about what our program means,” says Arganbright, “How important the lessons they learn as a member of our team has stayed with them over the years.” The 2009 class have learned lessons that they say could also help future Redskins. Graves says “When I do my job to the best of my ability I help other people.” He says younger players should try to always think of what’s best for the team. “Work hard and stay positive,” Johnston says, “and anything is possible.”

notoriously haunts a team pre-season. For the 2009 Generals, it was that they were probably going to be a 7-3 team if that. However, the Generals finished the season with the best record in school history, only the second team to rack up 13 straight wins without a loss, and advance to week 14 in the state playoffs. Conrad says that is something he could only dream of just a few years ago. “I remember when 4 - 4x4 runners, Floor Joists 16”OC, I was a freshman being part of another 10-0 team. Treated Floor, 16” OC Wall Studs, I was looking up to all the seniors thinking they 4’ Walls, Primed & Treated siding, were the best players EVER! …now I can be 25 year shingles.

He loves football and loves his players. It brings joy to our whole family.” Coach Slusser says though the team had much success, he will not use the 2009 Limited Time Offer season as a yardstick Now through December 23 for subsequent ones, but others do hold the bar high. He says the team however, is used to that. “I think they Stock & Non Stock are used to fan expectations, it comes with Ridgewood football…I think our community will (set the standard). Our BIG…. goal is still the same REAL. BIG. FATHEADtm as coaches… I believe Wall Graphics are awesome and become the center piece of any room. that each team should Players are approx. 80" tall x 50" wide, be judged by what they Helmets approx. 54" high x 52" wide do.”

december 9, 2009

The Ridgewood Football Program just concluded a season of reaching and surpassing many milestones; some for the first time in the school’s history, including capturing a Regional V championship. Though the players and coaches are still “flying high” about their accomplishments, they also remain very grounded. A former football coach and administrator once told me that there are many lessons to be learned on the “classroom football field” as well as in the classroom itself. Ridgewood is one such team. Memorization of plays which incorporates nouns, colors, names and oftentimes personifies an inanimate object, is only part of what a player can learn in the sport. Head Coach John Slusser says he has watched so many kids grow both mentally and physically, that “each game I would be so impressed with so many of our kids and their accomplishments.” A lesson learned which has manifested itself in Ridgewood Football has been how to stay focused and unified while keeping an eye on the top prize. Slusser says though there are many achievements made this year and it’s hard to pick out just one, but “making the state final four” stands out “because we have not accomplished that yet as a program.” Slusser says the feeling of unison was evident with his senior class as their positive attitudes were contagious. He says each week brought with it more expectations, but the team handled them well. “We had a very unselfish group that really liked to play. I think this approach was a key to maintaining (our victories) each week.” All-Ohio Senior running back and a team captain, Jake Conrad says he just loves football, but sticking together is “What wins football games.” He says he may have helped lead the team along with others both on and off the field, but “We truly are a family, and I believe I was a component in that.” Conrad was named All- Ohio co-offensive player of the year in Division V, as well as IVC player of the year, and the team’s Most Valuable Player. But Conrad has his feet on the ground. He says winning is important and setting records is “just a plus.” Senior and fellow-captain Colt Landis says he and his teammates tried to help others feel like they were one. “We had a bunch of kids that would work together and strived to get better…not only to win, but to prove people wrong.” Landis was alluding to the hear-say that

fourth year Presentation for “live christmas Tree” o chrisTMas Tree In the spirit of the season, the Coshocton Baptist Church is going to present the Live Christmas tree Presentation this weekend.they will be presenting a drama called “the Christmas Family tree”. through this play you find out about Jesus, His ancestors and how to accept Him through faith. the show starts on Saturday and Sunday at 6:30 p.m. with music starting at 6:15 p.m. the “Christmas Cousins” form the Living Christmas tree adds a lot to the drama team. Mark kocher, a member of the church, came up with the design of the tree. It is about 18 feet high with the star and 16 feet wide. It has approximately 2000 lights and has many different shape and size ornaments. It holds 25 people. this is the fourth presentation and each year the tree gets better and better. the first year the tree was made out of green cardboard and decorated, with people standing on scaffolding and only had 2 tiers. the next year kocher came up with a three tiered wooden structure, and the greenery on the tree is made out of artificial Christmas trees that people donated. the branches are decorated with ornaments, large and small. this event is free to everyone. PHOtO COntRIbuteD

The local community and Coshocton fans supported the team each and every week. If in Ridgewood country, Orange and black was evident everywhere you would look. Former players and students came from out of state to watch and cheer on the Generals. Slusser says “I have always been extremely proud of the Ridgewood Football tradition. It is a great small school environment to play football in. Each Friday night that we play here is very special.” Out-going seniors Conrad and Landis say that the football years fly by and upcoming players should make the most of it. “Don’t take it for granted,” Landis said, “because it goes by fast.” Conrad says, “If you put your heart into it, good things will happen.” When asked to sum-up their feelings about what was once believed to be a rebuilding season for Ridgewood Football these players and coaches feel “memorable,” feel “proud,” and feel like “legends.”

ask about our pre-winter rate special for new tenants

....Dad has always been very independent. After his heart started giving him problems, we were all concerned about his health. He and Mom being alone in that big old house was also something we all secretly worried about. Recently a friend of Dad’s told him about the Apartments at Windsorwood Place. It was affordable and Dad & Mom could maintain their independence in their own apartment yet have available assistance 24 hours a day if they need it. They can even take their little dog “Penny” and Mom has decided she wants to keep their beloved Ford in the covered parking area so she can continue to drive to see the grand kids when ever they want. One of the best parts is that a licensed nurse will keep track of Dad’s health and make sure he gets to his doctor’s appointments. They can help keep track of their medication and see that it’s always taken on time. They can even help with moving Mom & Dad’s furniture into their new apartment. The greatest thing is that all this “peace of mind” is easily within their budget. Those assisted living apartments are a great idea........

The first of three scheduled candle lightings was held in Roscoe Village on Saturday evening, Dec. 5 with a large crowd that filled the street despite brisk 20 degree temperatures. State Representative Troy Balderson was the honorary candle lighter and shared two stories with the audience about his favorite Christmas memories. One was about his first Christmas with wife Angie and the second was a humorous story about opening all the packages at 3 in the morning to find out if he got the requested, “GI Joe” toy with all the accessories. Finally finding him in the bathtub seeing if his newly acquired toy soldier could dive to the depths, his parents ushered him to his bedroom – where he spent two long days without his GI Joe! The tree that adorns the hillside was donated by the local Habitat for Humanity. Boy Scout troop 419 provided the mulled cider and helped serve the cookies. The season’s first candle lighting was sponsored by the Roscoe Village Foundation and the next two (Dec. 12 and Dec. 19) will be sponsored by the Roscoe Village Business Association. The Sacred Heart choir, under the direction of Father Bill Hritsko provided songs and spelled out “CHRIST WAS LOVE”, for the event and Bambi Fitch allowed those that are hearing impaired to follow the messages of humor, Christmas love and faith.

sixteen 5th graders competed for conservation Poster contest award “Thank you” to all the 5th grade teachers and students who participated in the Annual Fifth Grade Poster Contest sponsored by the Coshocton Soil and Water Conservation District. Coshocton County 5th graders prepared entries in the 2009 Conservation Poster Contest titled “Pollution…Begins – and Ends – With You” after a classroom presentation about pollution and how individuals can be a part of the problem or the solution. Sixteen Best of Class entries were on display at the Coshocton SWCD Fair Display and judged by the fair going public to determine the top three posters.

Shelbie Carnes of Conesville Elementary took the first place $25 cash prize and won a pizza party for her class, Shawna Shroyer of Keene Elementary took the second place $15 cash prize and won an ice cream party for her class, and Keith Leindecker of Ridgewood Middle School took the third place $10 cash prize and won an ice cream party for his class. The Coshocton Soil and Water Conservation District would like to thank students and teachers for participating in the contest along with the fair going public for voting at the SWCD’s display.

community choir presents “The Marvel of This night” The Coshocton Community Choir, under the direction of Mr. Charles R. Snyder, presented their annual Christmas concert to a near capacity crowd at Coshocton High School’s McKinley Auditorium on Sunday, Dec. 6. The choir provides the community with two opportunities to hear the message of faith and love through narration, instrumentation and song. Based on the enthusiastic standing ovation at the conclusion of the 3:00 pm performance, The Coshocton Community Choir once again struck a chord with the community. Adorned in their blue velvet robes and nearly 100 strong, The Coshocton Community Choir was joined by the Coshocton Children’s Choir, Coshocton Youth Chorale,

Roscoe Brass and the Asbury Handbell Choir from Grace United Methodist Church. Conductor and Director Charles R. Snyder said following the afternoon performance, “Each one of these concerts is like a different story – and we see the story each time through a different pair of glasses. I���m always amazed at the number of people in a small community that are involved in this event. Some of the high school students and several members of the children’s choir are children of students I had when I first came back to Coshocton and that is pretty special to me. And a number of the high school kids started in the children’s choir – and are now in the All Ohio Youth Choir so I get to know them pretty well.”

Some activities include basketball, which teaches depth perceptions; throwing bean bags, which helps with eye distance control, judging distance and character and also shapes and colors; and dropping rings on pipes to help with balance. “They respond to animals because animals don’t judge them,” said Roahrig, “They just accept them for who and how they are.” Classes are offered during the summer for Higher Hopes and River View High School students every other Monday and for Hopewell students every Thursday. Other classes are scheduled by appointment. Classes last about an hour and no one is turned away because of their inability to pay. Student ages range from four to mid-fifties, so no one is turned away because of age.

Higher Hopes Therapeutic Riding Center will be having their eighth annual auction on Saturday, Dec. 12 in the River View High School cafeteria. The event is sponsored by the River View FFA. Higher Hopes Therapeutic Riding Center is owned and operated by Tom and Peggy Roahrig out on County Road 17. They started the program in 1997 after an unforgettable incident at Lake Park in 1985. Hopewell schools had come to visit the stables at Lake Park and one little girl in a wheelchair was crying because she was afraid of the big horses. Roahrig was on a fifteen minute break which quickly turned into a two hour break as he tried to comfort the girl and show her that horses were nothing to be afraid of. Eventually, the girl gained enough courage to ride a pony. By the time they were ready to leave, the little girl was still crying, only this time, it was because she didn’t want to leave. Before she left, she had to kiss all the horses in the stable goodbye. “I thought, if we can do this in two hours, what can we do if we put our mind to it?” said Roahrig. At that time, not much was known about equine therapy, which is using animals as emotional therapy to help troubled or disabled children and adults. So when Tom and Peggy applied for a 501 non-profit status, they were denied. Instead of giving up hope, they began a small program in their backyard until 1997, when they reapplied for their 501 and was accepted. Higher Hopes offers classes to any child or adult suffering from a disability such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, Down’s syndrome, autism, multiple sclerosis, brain injury, attention deficit disorder, and many others. For individuals with disabilities, equine assisted activities may improve muscle tone, balance, posture, coordination, motor development, and emotional well-being. These classes also help with group participation, language skills, socialization, and following directions. Classes are limited to six to seven in each class to make class time more personal and so volunteers and students can get to know each other. Higher Hopes has about seven to eight volunteers and they are always on hand to make sure the students are always safe. Helmets are always required. “Most of the time, they need someone to
