Set Those Clocks Forward! Daylight savings time, when clocks are moved forward one hour ahead in the spring and set back one hour in the fall, was initiated to save energy on artificial lighting and make better use of daylight. DST was implemented roughly 100 years ago, but conceived much earlier than that. Today DST is in use in more than 70 countries across the globe, affecting about one billion people every year. Despite the well-intentioned purposes behind DST, little evidence exists to support DST as an effective means to saving energy. In 2017, DST will begin at 2:00 am on Sunday, March 12, and end at 2:00 am on Sunday, November 5, in the United States and Canada. However, Hawaii, most of Arizona, most of Saskatchewan, and some regions of British Colombia, Nunavut, Quebec, and Ontario will not observe DST. ENJOY THE EXTRA SUNSHINE!

ife insurance policies can help men and women make things easier for their spouses, children or siblings. Life insurance provides financial security in the event of a person’s death. Such insurance is a key element of estate planning and something all adults must consider. It’s smart to purchase life insurance at a relatively young age because the cost can be lower. Some people put off the process because it can be overwhelming. But Forbes magazine advises that once a person does a little research and learns the terminology associated with life insurance, choosing a policy is not so difficult.

during this “term.” Whole life insurance, also called “cash value,” usually costs more, but accumulates a cash value that can be borrowed against, and it pays out whenever a person passes away. • Choose among reputable companies. You want to ensure the life insurance company you pick will be around for years and has a strong reputation, so give ample consideration to each company you explore before making a final decision. • Know the waiting period. Many policies establish a period of time on policies wherein there is very little cash-out value and the company will not pay out the full death benefit. This may be a year or two after opening the policy. Discuss this information with the insurance agent.

• Determine the amount of insurance you will need. Make a list of expected expenses after you pass away. These may include any residual mortgage payments, school tuitions, automotive payments, or funeral expenses. In addition, approximate how much your family will need to live comfortably in your absence. Online calculators can help determine life insurance coverage needs. The New York Life Insurance Company says a quick way to figure out how much coverage you may need is to take your annual salary and multiply it by eight. • Decide on the type of policy. Life insurance policies come in two broad categories: term and whole life. Life insurance can be a smart financial choice, helping Term life insurance may be less expensive upfront, men and women rest easy that their families will want as it only provides coverage for a set number of for nothing in the wake of their deaths. years.

Photo Left: The Ohio Rose & Star appeared in Clary Gardens, home of The Theatre in the Ravine, a fresh air amphitheater. Photo Right: Mother Setzer’s Quilt was the first barn seen that day along Route 93 near Fresno.


Sunday drive has always been one of my favorite things. Dad would travel the back roads exploring places we had never been. That same feeling occurred while wandering along the Coshocton Quilt Barn Trails. It was a peaceful, old-fashioned road trip on those narrow, two-lane country roads, where you could actually take time to look at the scenery. While Quilt Barns have become a nationwide movement, they got their beginning fairly recently. In 2001, Donna Sue Groves wanted to honor her mother’s passion for quilting, so she painted her mother’s favorite quilt square on their old tobacco barn in Adams County. From there, the Quilt Barns arose to reflect the While SR 643 was the trail of choice, meandering spirit of the community. In Miami County, quilts were from that path became frequent. The desire to see hand-painted on the barn’s surface replicating the more Quilt Barns eventually lead us onto parts of all look of fabric, while in Harrison County emphasis three Coshocton trails. was on the Underground Railroad.

TIPS FOR THE QUILT BARN TRAIL: »» Get directions – Print a map, access one on a tablet or phone, or pick one up at the Coschocton Visitors’ Bureau »» Be prepared for all types of weather and muddy roads »» Bring a camera Many of the Quilt Barns sat on back roads. Some became a challenge, and a four wheel drive vehicle would have been helpful on this rainy day as roads were steep and muddy. But beautiful, scenic farms throughout this Amish countryside made the day enjoyable. Corn shocks were a sight not seen since childhood. Chalice was the name given to the quilt pattern made by Catherine Stubbs on a barn near a lovely stone house. It appears that Catherine stayed very busy with quilting and life in general. One day when her husband was at work in the coal mines, she moved them to another house closer to his work. It’s said when she cooked Sunday chicken dinner, she could stretch one chicken to feed twelve people. The Butterfly Quilt Barn near Fresno showcases a quilt made and designed by Oneita Hahn. Family members remember her quilting frame being up in the dining room quite often. Quilt patterns often were created by the quilters themselves and then drawn on newspaper. Not all barns were in the country. One actually was found in downtown Coshocton on the side of an old IOOF building, which formerly housed Mercantile on Main. Snowball, a black and white quilt, decorated the front of this one-time quilt supply shop. In Roscoe Village on the side of the Blacksmith Shop, Canal Era Applique could be seen upon entering the village on North Whitewoman Street. The quilt square on display appeared on a quilt made by Hannah Hays, whose family arrived in the area by canal boat. The end of the SR 643 Trail came in classy Clary Garden. Ohio Rose & Star has graced the side of their barn since 2003. Made by Coshocton Canal Quilter Helen Moody, this pattern was chosen to hang at the gardens in honor of the family’s rose business.

hysical activity and proper diet and nutrition can help people age 50 and older maintain their physical health, yet it can be easy to overlook the importance of keeping the brain healthy. However, a decline in brain function can result in poor concentration, memory loss and a host of other issues. Sometimes, by the time symptoms present themselves, it may be too late to reverse any damage. Research suggests that a combination of nutrition and mental, social and physical activities may have a greater impact with regard to maintaining and improving brain health than any single activity. Harvard Medical School also states that volunteering, caring for others and pursuing hobbies may benefit the brains of older adults. A study published in the Archives of General Psychiatry found participants who reported higher levels of purpose in life exhibited superior cognitive function despite the accumulation of abnormal protein depositions (amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles) in the brain, a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease. Having a purpose also may help those who do not have Alzheimer’s disease. In addition to the suggestions mentioned above, those who want to boost brain health can consider these strategies.

• Supplement with DHA. DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that is dominant in the brain. Adhere to a Mediterranean diet, which is generally high in natural sources of omega-3, including fish and monounsaturated fats from olives, olive oil, nuts and seeds. Supplements also may help, but individuals should consult with their doctors about which products to take. • Challenge the mind. Men and women can engage in challenging activities that stray from their routines. Puzzles, strategic games, jigsaw puzzles, or difficult hobbies can benefit the brain. • Keep a close-knit group of friends. Regular conversation and social interaction is a key component of any brain health wellness plan.

• Start exercising the brain early on. A study published in 2012 in the British Medical Journal examined cognitive function in people ages 45 to 70. Researchers found evidence of cognitive decline in the 45-year-old participants as well as the older participants. It’s never too early to put a brain health plan into motion. • Read more books. Reading can open individuals up to new vocabulary and scenarios that promote a stronger brain and recall ability. Enrolling in an education course at a local college, community center or online also may be beneficial. • Hit the gym. Several studies suggest an association Slowing cognitive decline and promoting greater brain between physical activity and reduced risk of health should be a priority for adults of all ages. cognitive decline. This could be because exercise elevates heart rate, which pumps more blood to the brain and body.

“Ne w Yo r k H a s Ca u g ht a 2 0 t h Ce nt u r y Witch Who S c atters, Not S pells B ut Typhoid G erms.” — Muskogee Count y D emocrat ne wspaper headline, Apr il 8, 1915


n a dreary Friday, March 26, 1915, an undercover officer of the New York City Health Department sat watching a house in the Corona section of Queens, hoping to spot a fugitive. Two people, employees of a local maternity hospital, lay dead. A tipster said the killer Story by RICK BOOTH might visit a certain house in Queens. And so the officer waited. And waited. And waited… until a mysterious woman, her face hidden behind a veil, approached the home and went in. Immediately, the officer called for backup. Several more agents, some sanitary inspectors, and a doctor arrived. Then, carefully watching all sides of the house to prevent escape, one among them rang the doorbell and knocked. No one answered the door. It was locked. But an officer spotted a nearby ladder and found a way in through a second story window. Others followed to help with the room-to-room search. Finally, forcing open a bathroom door, they found a middle-aged woman crouched in a corner of the room. Mary Mallon knew the game was up. After eight years of resistance, the fight had finally gone out of her. She went peacefully with her captors, back to her prison island. “Typhoid Mary” knew she’d never be free again. The life story of the infamous Typhoid Mary is, in fact, far more a tragedy than a crime tale. Mary did not mean to kill. She was alone in the world, an Irish immigrant woman just trying to make her way through life as a cook, and a very good one at that. It was her sole profession. For years, she had no idea why so many around her contracted typhoid fever. She drew praise

from employers when she helped nurse the stricken back to health. Maybe, she thought, she was just unlucky. But then again, she was always the lucky one to not fall ill herself. Were it not for the advance of science and bacteriology, Mary might have lived out her days in the high regard of those she cooked and cared for. But a 1906 Long Island typhoid outbreak and a master disease detective named George Soper changed her life — and medical history — forever. Until the end of the 1800s, the prevailing theory of most infectious disease was that foul smells, mysterious vapors, and filthy living conditions that promoted these things were responsible for sickness. Others thought simply that sin brought illness on. But then advances by European scientists Louis Pasteur and Robert Koch identified small microorganisms, bacteria, as the probable agents of many diseases. By 1880, even the doctors of Cambridge, Ohio, were discussing these new theories at their local meetings. In considering typhoid fever, for instance, at a locally reported medical meeting, a Dr. Tingle noted that blood and stool samples showed a certain sort of “animalcula,” only visible under the microscope, associated with the disease. Local Dr. McPherson likewise volunteered that typhoid fever and malarial fever were likely associated with different forms of “bachteria.” Science was on the march.

Salmonella typhi, the deadly typhoid bacteria

By the very early 1900s, public health agencies were concentrating on cleaning up city water supplies — keeping the bacteria out — to prevent the spread of disease, especially typhoid fever. The clean water was working. That was why an isolated outbreak of typhoid fever among six members of a wealthy family vacationing on Long Island in the summer of 2006 was so puzzling. No one else in their community got sick. The water supply was fine. Household sewage pipes had no leaks. The family food sources were the same as for the rest of the community, which was unaffected. It was time to call in disease detective George Soper to find the source. George Soper had helped quash other typhoid outbreaks, distributed on a larger scale. He usually worked his wonders by tracking down any source of human waste that could enter local water supplies, and then blocking it. But that wasn’t the problem on Long Island. Determined to find the answer, he interviewed the affected family at length. They had hired a new cook, they said, shortly before the outbreak, but she had moved on to other engagements when the summer job was done. But where was she? George Soper needed to find her. The cook was named Mary Mallon. Because she had been hired through an agency, it was actually easier to track her past employment history than to find out where she had gone to now. What George Soper found astonished him. Of seven known past employers, six had experienced one or more cases of typhoid fever in the time Mary cooked for them! There was a theory recently put forward in Europe that some people who seemed healthy might be capable of carrying deadly disease that could infect others. Soper was certain Mary was a carrier. He just had to find her.

After more hunting, agency to employment agency, Soper finally located Mary, cooking for a wealthy Park Avenue family in New York City. Two members of the family were already sick with typhoid, and one was soon to die. Relieved to have finally found his disease carrier, Mr. Soper went to the home to speak with Mary. He explained to her, politely enough, that he was nearly certain she was unintentionally spreading typhoid fever to the families she cooked for. All he wanted from her was a bit of cooperation — and blood, urine, and stool samples. Mary’s reaction was not what Soper had expected. Rather than leaping at the chance to advance medical science, she explained that she had never been sick a day in her life and could not possibly be the source of disease. She cursed him and, wielding a carving fork, chased him out of the house. He was fortunate to escape unscathed. Thinking Mary might be more amenable to friendly persuasion away from her place of employment, Soper next found out where Mary lived and asked a medical doctor to accompany him to find her there to try to gain her cooperation. They were waiting for her as she

arrived home at her apartment. Again they were cursed and ejected. George Soper had no personal authority to force Mary to comply, so he knew he had to recruit an agency with the power to force cooperation. He went to the New York City Health Department, explained the overwhelming evidence of the peril of Mary, and quickly got agents assigned to investigate. Thinking that Mary might respond to a female doctor’s request, they sent Dr. S. Josephine Baker to play the friendly “good cop” role in persuading her. The ploy may have reduced the cursing and physical attacks, but the answer was still a firm and angry “No.” Having played nice and lost, it was time for the Health Department to go nuclear. The next morning, Dr. Baker returned to Mary’s residence with three policemen and an ambulance. It was time to take Mary by force. When Dr. Baker and a policeman sought entrance at the door, Mary greeted them… with a long, sharp fork. They jumped back to avoid her thrust, and by the time they forced the door open again, Mary was gone. They searched the house, high and low, and then spotted footprints in the backyard snow leading toward the house next door. It took about four hours and two extra policemen searching both houses before Mary was discovered in an outdoor closet under a porch. As Mary fought, kicked, and cursed, they loaded her into the waiting ambulance. Dr. Baker sat on top of her all the way to the hospital. At long last, Mary had been caught!

River just off Manhattan, called North Brother Island. The hospital, once used for cases of extremely contagious diseases, was primarily a tuberculosis sanatorium by the time Mary was sent there. She was given her own cottage on the island as their only typhoid carrier patient. There, against her will, they studied herfor three years and tried various medicines to try to cure her of the carrier state, all to no avail. They offered to take her gall bladder out. Maybe, they said, that would work. She refused. With the help of a lawyer, she sued unsuccessfully for her release, which made her case and name available to the press. The newspapers followed the saga of poor “Typhoid Mary” just trying to win her freedom. After all, she’d committed no crime. Her case attracted national attention. She received much public sympathy.

A newspaper sketch of the deadly cook

“Typhoid Mary” Mallon at her first incarceration

Hospital testing quickly confirmed that somewhere in Mary’s gall bladder or intestines there was a thriving colony of Salmonella typhi bacteria, the microorganism responsible for typhoid fever. Mary seemed healthy as a horse, but she was also America’s first confirmed healthy “carrier” of a deadly disease. Now that they had caged the lion, they just had to figure out what to do with her. At the time Mary was captured, New York operated a quarantine hospital on a small piece of land in the East

Because Mary would not agree to give up being a cook if released, however, the Health Department felt it had to protect the public by keeping her in quarantine. Cooking was the only decent-paying job poor Mary knew how to do, and she had no family to rely on. She had come to America from Ireland alone at age 14 to live with an aunt and uncle in New York. When they soon thereafter died, she bootstrapped her way to the high and valued domestic servant position of cook. If she couldn’t do that, how could she support herself? How would she survive? Defeated in the courts, Mary finally resolved herself to the inevitable deal: She would sign a promise to never work as a cook again, in exchange for her freedom. She would pose little risk that way. The city found her a job as a low-paid laundry woman. But she could barely scrape by on the income

LOOKING BACK and was expected to check in monthly with the Health Department for monitoring. Under this agreement, she was released from her island prison in 1910. A year later, she disappeared. Few at the Health Department were even aware that Mary had vanished around 1911. George Soper and Dr. Baker were not informed that the monitoring had stopped. But then, in January 1915, the Health Department was called in for an emergency investigation of a typhoid outbreak at New York City’s Sloan Hospital for Women, a maternity center. Twenty-five cases of The abandoned island that was Mary’s last home typhoid fever had occurred there in a matter of weeks, and two were soon to die. Like the Long Island case By the time Mary died, hundreds of other individuals nearly nine years before, the hospital’s level of sanitation had been identified as typhoid carriers. But fortunately was impeccable. Perhaps they had a carrier! for most of them, few were professional cooks intent on maintaining their careers. Nearly all were permitted to live free with occasional monitoring. A few difficult cases spent periods in enforced quarantine like Mary’s, but none ever remained in that state for life. A decade after Mary died, antibiotics effective against typhoid fever were discovered. Most of the carriers were then able to be cured. Today typhoid fever is rare in America, with only about 500 known cases a year in our country. And most of those infections are the result of trips abroad. Deaths here today from typhoid fever are near zero. “Typhoid Mary” Mallon never meant harm to others, “Typhoid Mary” Mallon in lab coat, circa 1930 but killed nonetheless. She never sought fame, yet achieved it in the worst of ways. She cared little and Suspicion fell quickly on a recently hired cook calling trusted less in the advancement of medical science, but herself Mrs. Brown.

Provides Nostalgia for Seniors Story and photos by BEVERLY KERR


urn the radio on and listen to WBPS 101.9 FM, where you can hear Good Time Oldies and Great American Standards. Many remember sitting on the floor by the radio listening to those old classic shows. However, watching the radio fascinated Boyer Simcox when he was a child. While listening he saw the shows in his mind, but when TV came around the shows didn’t match his imagination. Radio always remained his preference. Just out of high school, Boyer volunteered at a radio station in Wheeling, where he did a half hour talk show called “Firing Line”. Here he interviewed many interesting guests including John Glenn and Howard Metzenbaum. One special show happened at the time of the Kent State shootings and so many questions came in that the producer told him to keep going as long as they were interested. Over the years,Boyer has held many intriquing  positions

where he was always helping someone. One thing can be certain, he has always done what he wanted to do. He’s worked as Director of  Social Services, Director of the Area Agency on Aging, and even owned a couple restaurants, but always wanted his own radio station. Back in 1984, he called the FCC to see if a frequency was  obtainable. None were available at that time, so he waited. Then in 2013, the FCC released several frequencies for non-profit or community stations. Boyer applied. One morning in 2013, while watching the Today Show with his wife Judy, Boyer happened to check the FCC site on his tablet. He was listed on their approval list! Immediately, he handed the tablet to Judy to prove he wasn’t dreaming. Paperwork began. Deadline for being on the air was 18 months. He decided to purchase a package with everything he needed except the antenna. When he

station, Boyer’s always ready to listen and is eager for more local participation. If non-profit groups would like to have announcements made on WBPS, send him an email as there is no cost. He even shares them with his network of radio friends. That’s what Community Radio is all about. When asked what he does for fun, Boyer answered quickly, “I’m having it.” His advice to everyone would be, “Don’t be afraid to try something new.” It never occurred to him that he couldn’t do it. Music comforts the soul, especially those songs you have known most of your life. That’s why WBPS is becoming a favorite station for seniors in the area. Twenty-four hours a day,  it plays those songs that make you smile, as they bring back pleasant memories. Listen to WBPS 101.9 FM and you’ll find yourself singing along with those old-time favorites. You just can’t help it. Contact Bev at or follow her blog at

received it, Boyer wondered, “What have I done?” There were many unanswered questions as the package had no instructions. Boyer used the internet for information and several small radio stations formed a forum to answer questions and share information. Work progressed slowly until he had everything assembled and all the wires connected. But when he turned it on, nothing happened.Time was getting short for his deadline, but during the night at 3:00 in the morning in November, 2014, Boyer rested in bed thinking about those wires. It came across his mind that two wires needed to be switched. Changing those two little wires brought his station to life. Excitedly Boyer hopped in his car and drove all over town to see how far WBPS could be heard. When he stopped on Wheeling Avenue, he looked down and discovered that he still had on his robe and slippers. But his 100 watt station could be heard all over Cambridge. Now into his third year of broadcasting, he has country-wide contacts, who share their shows with him. Bluegrass from West Virginia, polkas from Minnesota, and movie tunes from New Philadelphia are a few of those connections. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has a featured show as well as Bill Gaither, who agreed to share his program after just one phone call. WBPS airs around the clock these days. People listen to it all night long. and several use it in the workplace because it’s happy, up-beat music. There’s no need to broadcast local news or sports here, as AVC radio stations do an excellent job of covering those items. However, Don Keating, local weather meteorologist, does an outstanding job of broadcasting up-to-date local weather. Boyer and Judy Simcox feel WBPS is their gift to the community. They both participate in radio operation on and off the air. Everyplace they go, people stop and thank them for the familiar music. It made Boyer smile when a listener told him he wouldn’t get out of the car until a song was finished. That makes it all worthwhile. Listeners tune in for the Pennyroyal live on Friday, the Wheeling Jamboree on Saturday and  then a day of spiritual songs - Our Sunday Best. In the future, Boyer would like to feature more local groups on the air. If groups have a CD they would like to share, contact him at If anyone has an interest in volunteering or has ideas for the
