hose words rang true for the thousands of coal miners that lived in our area during the early 1900s. In order to honor these men, and coal miners across the nation, a memorial in their honor has been placed at the old train depot in Byesville, Ohio. This is no ordinary statue as it was commissioned by Alan Cottrill, internationally renowned sculptor, who has his studio in Zanesville. Why, you might ask, is this statue in Byesville? Why not place it in some larger city? Byesville was the coal capital of Ohio back in the early 1900s. Perhaps a hundred and fifty trains would roar down their tracks each day. Cars carried coal from Marietta to Cleveland and often into Canada. Raising money for the statue was itself a challenge. Contributions came from local residents as well as all those who rode the now silent Byesville Scenic Railway. Total cost of this memorial was $40,000. So if you rode the train or visited their museum, perhaps you have a hand in making that statue become reality. When people made a donation in any amount, they were given a badge saying:


The Coal Miners Memorial was dedicated in 2012. It contains 38 different parts that were individually cast and welded together by Alan Cotrill. Everything on this statue has meaning. The miner’s canvas hat gave him a place to hang his carbide light. The miner had to purchase the pellets to fill his carbide the company store, of course. The coal mines gave them nothing. Why they even had to purchase their own picks and dynamite! If you look closely at the statue, the miner’s brass tag reads 382, the number of coal miners who lost their lives in the deep mines of Guernsey County over the mines’ sixty active years. The miner statue is missing the tip of his right index finger in recognition of all the men injured in the mines. The dinner pail he carries was an important part of the miner’s day. Many of those miners were immigrants, often called ‘dumb hunkies’. Everyone headed out to work swinging

This was a special badge that had been designed very carefully. Each color on the badge has great significance.

“A Special Kind of Caring”

Yellow stands for a beam of sunshine that sheds light on the darkness of the dungeon of a dark and gray mine.

Providing dignified, compassionate, comfort-oriented care to the terminally ill.

Gray is for the rock/slate layers that are found above and below the seams of coal.

Red is for the color of blood that was spilled onto the ground from those who either lost their lives or were injured while working about the mines.


Black needs little explanation as it is the color of coal, also known as black diamonds, buried sunshine, or rocks that burn.

their dinner pail. The pails could not be set down on the mine floor or the rats, the miners’ mascot, would open them and eat their lunch. So miners always hung their dinner pails high on the mine wall. A West Virginia ham sandwich was always quite the treat. That ham by the way was what we call bologna. They always left a little something in their pail, just in case there was a cave in and they might be below ground all night. If they made if safely through the day, the miners would let the children have their pails on the way home for a little snack. From his hat to the dynamite at his feet, each item has great significance. A portion of the plaque on the side of the memorial states: M AY T H E P E R S O N A L S U F F E R I N G S , SACRIFICES AND THE HARDSHIPS ENDURED B Y Y O U R FA M I L I E S , N E V E R B E F O R G O T T E N N O R TA K E N F O R G R A N T E D .

Car Tips

What’s the difference between AWD and 4WD? All-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive systems are similar, but the latter is preferable when driving off-road.


inter weather is here, leaving some drivers wondering if their two-wheel-drive vehicles can handle roads covered in snow and ice. Now is the time people flock to car and truck dealerships to trade in their cars for something with a little more power and traction and also to take advantage of end-of-season pricing. When faced with an array of vehicles boasting four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive, consumers often wonder about the differences between the two options or if there is any difference at all. Though similar, fourwheel-drive and all-wheel-drive are not quite the same. Four-wheel-drive systems, often referred to as 4WD, trace their origins to the late 1800s, while all-wheeldrive, or AWD, did not arrive until the late 1970s, when an AWD system was used on an Audi vehicle for rally racing. Now many cars and trucks come with 4WD or AWD, particularly crossovers and SUVs. Both drive systems engage all four wheels at the same time to provide more traction. On AWD systems, the powering of the wheels is automatic and usually handled by the electronic system of the car. Some vehicles drive in two-wheel-drive, but then engage AWD when sensors detect a need for more traction and maneuverability. When operating 4WD vehicles, drivers may have to manually engage the system. True 4WD uses a transfer case mounted by the rear of the transmission. A button

or selector lever on older model SUVs would switch the vehicle from 2WD to 4WD. Unlike in AWD systems, the front and rear axles are locked together in 4WD systems. Four-wheel-drive systems are better for offroading, rock-climbing and driving through mud and water. Individuals who participate in many off-road recreational activities will find that 4WD, especially in vehicles with more gears, is more effective and provides better traction. All-wheel-drive provides stability, largely on roadways, and enables the vehicle to modify the level of power to either the front or rear wheels to improve traction as needed. All-wheel-drive is adequate for many drivers and situations. It is important to note that, on icy or slippery roads, neither AWD or 4WD systems assist with braking or completely prevent cars from skidding on slick surfaces. Having the ability to engage all four wheels at the same time should not be used as a replacement for cautious driving in inclement weather. Four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive both provide power to all four wheels on the vehicle but have subtle differences that make each better for certain driving conditions.

nsurance policies come in various forms. There is a type of insurance to cover everything from motor vehicles to personal health to apartment dwellings. While the majority of people understand the importance of insuring their homes and cars, many may not explore the benefits of a different type of insurance: umbrella coverage. Unlike other types of insurance that only offer one specific coverage, umbrella insurance is a single policy that covers various aspects of a person’s life. An umbrella policy can fill in the gaps where liability limits come into play with other insurance policies, keeping a person protected regardless of deductibles and other assets. According to the financial resource Money Crashers, umbrella insurance is a type of liability insurance. Its main purpose is to protect policy holders in the event of lawsuits. The umbrella policy will provide additional coverage against bodily injury liability claims and property damage liability claims. These policies also provide broader forms of coverage and can help cover some legal fees, if necessary. Trusted Choice Independent Insurance Agents says umbrella insurance is important because it can prevent financial ruin in the case of an accident. The amount of umbrella coverage a person may need depends on how much that person is worth. Prospective policy holders can calculate their total assets and then take out policies in that amount or more to protect their net worth. Depending on the insurance company, umbrella policies range anywhere from $1 to $10 million. Coverage typically starts in the range of $150 to $200 for a $1 million policy. What’s more, some insurance companies will not issue an umbrella policy unless the insured already has an automotive or home policy with them — and one that maintains the standard amount of

Small Towns: Life in Roseville Story by MARY HELEN STRAKER


hee!” Joan’s voice echoed through the pottery warehouse when, as a child, she would ride the loading system at Nelson McCoy Pottery In Roseville, Ohio. The warehouse was full of straw bales stacked all the way to the ceiling. An eighteen inch wide conveyer belt with small, metal wheels ran from the top of the storage building to a main loading door where trucks would pick up the pottery boxes. “We climbed up the bales and sat on a piece of cardboard on the belt and rode all the way to the bottom on weekends when the trucks weren’t loading,” Joan said. “It just took a little push forward to get us going!” Three or four of the neighboring children would go up together and then take turns sliding down. Joan Cameron (nee Dalrymple) was the youngest of the seven children – six girls and one boy – of Hugh and Ocie Dell Heide Dalrymple of Roseville. Hugh was an electrician and coal miner. While Joan was born in Bethesda Hospital in Zanesville, she lived the first twenty-one years of her life in Roseville. The population of Roseville according to the 2010 census is 1,852. The village located in Clay Township in Muskingum and Perry Counties sits about ten miles south of Zanesville. Laid out along Moxahala Creek in 1812 by Ezekial Rose, it was first named New Milford, but the name was changed to Roseville by the time the post office was being applied for in 1830. By 1833 the town had a grist mill and a saw mill. Roseville was incorporated in 1840 with Dr. James Little as the first mayor. By 1880, with a population of 531, Roseville had a newspaper, five churches, three flour mills and several stoneware manufacturers.

Noted for pottery production, the area surrounding Roseville provided clay for decorative and functional stoneware. Roseville Pottery Company, in operation from 1890 to 1954, was a premier producer of art pottery in the early twentieth century. It moved its headquarters to Zanesville in 1898 and operated a factory in Roseville until 1910, when it moved all manufacturing operations to Zanesville. The company was sold to Mosaic Tile Company in 1954. Ransbottom Pottery Company, founded in 1900, later merged with Robinson Clay Products Company to become RobinsonRansbottom Pottery Company. It ceased operations in 2005. Like Roseville Pottery, it found it increasingly difficult to compete with imported pottery. Nelson McCoy Sanitary Stoneware Company, founded in 1910, originally made jars, jugs and crocks, then expanded to vases, umbrella stands and cookie jars, for which it is most famous. Several buildings in the town are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Ohio Ceramic Center houses several collections of pottery and is located just south of the

town along State Route 93. Roseville also has an active historical society. Remembering her early years in Roseville, Joan recalled how she had wanted to climb a nearby oil rig – or so she thought. Twenty feet off the ground she panicked and screamed until her friends came to the rescue. “We loved to go into the oil well belt house and jump on the belt – like a trampoline,” Joan remembered. “It made such a loud noise the adjacent homeowner would yell at us and we would run.” The children also liked to walk the railroad trestle over Moxahala Creek and would make the up and down trek over the hills to school. Joan remembers the yearly summer carnival and Roseville Community Day at Melick’s Grove, as well as the Pottery Festival every other year. A strawberry

blonde with blue eyes, she was in the pottery queen’s court with its parade in 1960. A more recent highlight at the annual Octoberfest in 2016 was when the Roseville Villagettes OCCL presented a plaque to Dr. Jack Butterfield for his thirty-five years of service to Roseville and the surrounding area. “Roseville was a great place to grow up in, a beautiful town, a safe environment...we never locked our doors,” Joan said. Married to James H. Cameron, an oil and gas producer of Zanesville, in 1965, Joan is noted locally for her annual display of tulips. Each fall she plants 10,000 bulbs – she can plant 700 in three-and-a-half hours, finishing by Thanksgiving. In early November 2016 she had planted 7,250 bulbs with about 3,000 more to go. Joan and Jim have two children, two grandsons and two step-granddaughters. As the snow begins to fall outside, we can all think of Roseville and look forward to Joan’s tulips in the spring.

By drinking enough water, people can ensure their colon will not have to pull water from stools to stay hydrated, thereby helping them stay regular. • Water helps the body in myriad ways. Many of these ways might surprise people unaware of just how valuable water can be to the body.




ehydration is a dangerous condition that can cause a host of complications and even prove fatal in severe cases. But as dangerous as dehydration can be, many cases are entirely preventable. The best way to prevent dehydration is to drink enough water. When the body does not take in as much water as it puts out, it can become dehydrated. People who live in warm climates or in elevated altitudes may lose more water than those who do not. In addition, water loss is accelerated during strenuous exercise, highlighting the emphasis men and women must place on drinking enough water during their workouts. But water does more for the body than prevent dehydration. The following are a handful of lesser known ways that water benefits the body. • Water can help people maintain healthy weights. Dieting fads come and go, but water is a mainstay for people who want to control their caloric intake in an effort to maintain healthy weights. Water has zero calories, so reaching for a bottle or glass of water instead of a soda, lemonade or other caloric beverage can help people keep the pounds off. A study from researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center found that even diet soda enhances weight gain by as much as 41 percent. In addition, soda has been linked to conditions such as obesity, diabetes and tooth decay. No such association exists with water. • Water helps the gastrointestinal tract.

The good news is that the principles behind our CTX Knee Program work for knees that are even boneon-bone (in the earlier stages).

We all know that there is a difference between covering up your symptoms, and actually fixing the underlying problem. So why settle for “bandaid” care when the CTX Method for Knee Pain is available? What if you could tap into your body’s natural healing abilities by using scientific principles to restore the knee cushion?

How does it work? By taking pressure off the cushions and supporting their need for fuel and motion. With thorough neurological testing and treatment, you will finally discover how to take control of your knee pain problem.

I asked myself that very same question. What do knees need to stay healthy? What causes knee damage? How can I naturally “tip the balance” toward repairing and restoring sick cartilage while also removing what was stimulating the pain nerves? Do you have any of the following symptoms… no sleep due to… • Chronic Knee Pain • Knee Pain with “Stairs & Chairs” • Knees that are starting to become Bow-legged or Knock Together • Bone-on-bone on an Xray • A diagnosis of Knee Arthritis or Degeneration of the carilage If so, you can have benefit from the CTX Method for Knee Pain After 15 years of research… A frustrated Doctor Discovers The single Most Important Solution To Your Knee Pain… Are you tired of pleading with doctor after doctor for more help, only to get the ‘pat answer’… let’s try another pill, injection, or surgery..” You don’t have to be frustrated any more, or spend tens of thousands of dollars and countless hours away from your family…hopelessly looking for hidden answers.

No-knead bread is loved by many for its simplicity, ease to prepare, and delicious taste. Not to mention this rustic, round, floured loaf looks beautiful.

No-Knead Dutch Oven Bread

Ingredients: 3 cups all purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon yeast 1 teaspoon salt

1.5 cups luke warm water


1. In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients (flour, salt, yeast). Mix well. 2. Add the water into the dry ingredients and stir with a spoon or spatula until the dough takes on a “shaggy” appearance and no dry flour remains. Do not overwork the dough.

3. Cover the bowl and dough with a plate, board, or plastic wrap in order to seal moisture in and allow to sit covered at room temp (70°F) for 12-24 hours. 4. As you are preparing to uncover the dough, place the empty dutch oven with the lid into the oven and preheat to 450°F. Let the dutch oven heat up in the oven for 20-30 minutes. 5. Uncover dough and with floured hands form into a ball. Cover the dough loosely with a floured towel or a bowl and let it rise for 15-20 minutes. 6. *Optional: At this point some people prefer to put the dough in the fridge and let it sit for a couple of days.

For a more rustic look, sprinkle a dusting of flour on the bread. Cut 2 or 3 shallow slits into the top of the bread with scissors or a sharp knife. 9. Cover the dutch oven with the lid and place in the oven to bake for 30 minutes. 10. After 30 minutes, remove the lid and allow the bread to bake uncovered for 7-15 minutes until the crust is browned and crispy. 11. Remove dutch oven and remove bread on to a cooling rack.

y wife and I make this bread weekly and it has become a staple in our household. It is easy to make and the best part is that there is no need to knead the dough. This is especially convenient if you love to make bread but may not always have the time to let it rise, punch it down, rise again, and then knead the dickens out of it. With this recipe, we typically will mix the dough on a weekend evening, let it sit and rise overnight for 12-24 hours, and then bake it in the dutch oven. Voilà! We have a delicious homemade loaf that did not take more than 15 minutes to prepare. So what is this no-knead business about? If it sounds too good to be true…it is…sort of. There is actually some kneading involved, but the bread maker is not the one working the dough. In this case, leave it to the yeast to the do the hard work. When the wet and dry ingredients are combined the yeast begins to feed on the sugars in the flour and emits carbon dioxide gas, forming a tremendous amount of bubbles in the dough.1 The creation of these bubbles is what gives the bread great structure without ever having to get your hands in the dough (not that there is anything wrong with that). Movin' to the oven. Cooking the risen dough in a dutch oven is key because it helps to retain the proper temperature, moisture, and most importantly it transfers energy quicker, which causes the bread to expand faster - ultimately giving it a more desirable texture. It is important to heat the dutch oven so it is the same temperature as the oven by the time you place the dough in it. This helps the dough cook quicker as well as not stick to the surfaces. Keeping the lid on bakes the dough faster without drying out. You can then remove the lid and continue to bake, toasting the outside of the bread and giving it beautiful color and a crisp crust. This recipe is quite flexible and can be applied to baguettes, loaves, pizza crusts, and who knows what else. We enjoy making a heartier variation subsituting half of

Looking Back

Tar, Feathers, and the Scandalous Sunday Sun “H. L. Preston, editor of the Kansas City Sunday Sun, was arrested last week on warrants charging him with criminal libel and with publishing an immoral paper... Preston has caused more disgust with journalism than any man in America... Notwithstanding all the efforts of the authorities to keep the paper out of Cambridge, several copies are to be seen each week. ” — The Cambridge Jeffersonian newspaper, May 7, 1896


he spring of 1896 was a rough time for Henry L. Preston, editor of the Kansas City Sunday Sun newspaper. Though he and his paper had caused many a furor over the past six years, things got even worse when he was arrested in St. Joseph, Missouri, for criminal libel Story by RICK BOOTH and publishing an immoral paper. He posted the required $2,000 bond, but then decided leaving town was a better personal option for him than standing trial. The sheriff got wind of his attempted escape, though, and it seems a buggy chase ensued. Abandoning his buggy, Mr. Preston then tried hiding in a rail yard box car. That didn’t work either. As one reporter delicately explained, when Preston was found, “a revolver persuaded him to go with the officer.” The most scandalous newspaper in America was being shut down! The story behind Mr. Preston’s dramatic detention came to my attention a few months ago in a curious way: from a little clue in a picture. When Ray Booth, the executive editor of the local Jeffersonian newspaper, learned that I was scanning old glass plate negative pictures at the Guernsey County History Museum, he offered up a collection of 104 more such plates, left to him

years ago by an elderly woman, now deceased, in the Newcomerstown area. He wasn’t sure what was on them, but he was curious to see. Most, it turned out, appeared to have been pictures taken in the 1890s around Newcomerstown, and a dozen or so appeared to be scenes staged by actors for some sort of dramatic storytelling effort. But no explanation or script accompanied the pictures.

Goin’ fishin’ with a bottle and the Sunday Sun.

There were bar scenes, a fight, and an arrest at gunpoint. But one particular picture of an impishly grinning man holding a newspaper seemed to hold the best clue of all. The visible portion of the front page said “Sunday Sun” with the letters “ty” peeking out around the central fold. I’d never heard of an old Sunday Sun paper locally, so I made an inquiry online. Restricting the search to the 1890s, most of the hits connected to something called the Kansas City Sunday Sun, and therein lies the rest of this story. The Sunday Sun, it turns out, was the biggest scandal sheet of its day. Think National Enquirer on steroids, but with the difference that instead of dishing dirt on national celebrities, the Sun dished dirt on people who were well known in smaller communities. It got its news by paying “correspondents” to send in the dirtiest secrets of individuals living in many a small community around the country. Stopping short of calling people out by name, the paper would describe the people it talked about in such clear detail that readers could easily tell precisely who the subject or subjects of any given scandals were. By not directly naming the exposed victim, the Sunday Sun skirted libel laws for years, until Mr. Preston was finally brought to jail and held for trial.

treatment, in fact, was accorded a number of the Sun’s correspondents over the years, sometimes accompanied by being ridden out of town on a rail. It was not a pleasant ride. An almost humorous 1890 newspaper article was entitled, “A HUSBAND HORSEWHIPPED.” It went on to explain, “About seven o’clock F. H. Fallon... received a severe horsewhipping at the hands of his wife and sister-in-law, Miss Millie Wheeler.”

Tarred, feathered, and riding a rail.

A photo close-up shows the paper’s name.

The correspondents of the Sunday Sun generally tried to remain anonymous within their communities. The communities under attack would, in turn, engage in a game of cat and mouse with the correspondent, trying to discover the identity of the cowardly, gossiping sneak inflicting social pain on the high and mighty of any given town. If found out, the punishment was often severe. A paper in Abilene, Texas, reported in 1891, “At Waco, last week, the correspondent of the Kansas City Sunday Sun was given 100 lashes and a coat of tar and feathers.” The full tar and feather

Apparently the husband was upset with his wife for suspected cheating, so he himself sent the story to the Kansas City Sunday Sun to, at minimum, embarrass her, or, better yet, correct her behavior. The embarrassment part clearly worked, but having two sisters double-team him with a cowhide whip was probably an unintended consequence. Domestic violence used to be considered a conspicuous non-crime. “The ladies are well connected and wealthy,” the paper reported.

Topeka and many other towns banned the Sun.

Now & Then

| 19

Some towns banned the sale and distribution of the paper, which was sold nationwide. Other places tried to tax it out of existence. Nevertheless, people loved reading the scandals, and attempts to keep the Sun entirely out of affected communities usually failed. Cambridge itself tried to ban the paper, but copies still floated in. It was said to have been a favorite read at barber shops.

“hush money” from the parties involved in order to keep the story out of the Sun’s pages. Extortion did occasionally occur. At Dennison, Ohio, a woman accused of being a Sunday Sun correspondent protested her innocence quite publicly in New Philadelphia’s paper. She had not been tarred and feathered, but she did receive a threatening anonymous letter, dated March 28, 1896, as follows: “It is necessary for me, an officer of this county, to notify you to desist in corresponding for the Kansas City Sunday Sun. We are positive of your guilt in more ways than one. If you do not stop we will compel you to do so, as we have only started matters.” The note was signed, “ONE OF THE COMMITTEE.” It was a vigilante threat. Poor Lillie Manful replied to the threat with a long letter of denial to the editor. She was particularly upset that someone who suspected her — some “dastardly cur” — had smashed a window at her own mother’s home. Apparently some of the scandals the Sun was publishing had to do with railroad men at Dennison, for Lillie counter-threatened, “I have an idea where all this Acting out a bar fight. Was it because of the Sun? is coming from, and if it is not stopped I shall go direct to Pittsburgh, to the superintendent of the P. The Kansas City Sunday Sun’s effects were even C.

I am getting tired and In 1896, the New Philadelphia Democrat said, “... disgusted, and in this way, I will get even.” the carrier of the Kansas City Sun, when he comes up from Port Washington to Uhrichsville, carries a revolver conspicuously in his coat pocket — perhaps he finds it necessary.” A few weeks later, the paper reported, “The boy who supplies the lovers of sensational literature in our city, with the Kansas City Sun, was arrested Saturday evening.” He was later let go, though, for lack of a clear ordinance forbidding the sale of that paper. In May of 1896, Steubenville’s mayor ordered that the Sunday Sun not be sold within the city. And the next month in Belmont County, a 16-yearA pretend sheriff arrests a pretend bad guy. old boy named Milton Ritner was arrested and put in jail at Bellaire for selling the paper. People took chances distributing the paper and writing for it The exact descriptions of scandals printed in the because it paid well. And not writing for the paper Kansas City Sunday Sun are conspicuously absent sometimes paid even better. “Correspondents” from this article for a very good reason. Even when were known to sometimes spot a scandal and seek commenting on the Sun’s transgressive reporting, it

Looking Back was taboo for other papers to reprint the scandals themselves. This taboo even extended to the court system. The Sunday Sun litigation was precedentsetting in some respects, for it forced rulings that said it could be proper to convict someone of libel without entering the text of the libel into the court record. After all, to do so on public record would be to spread the libel further. I don’t know if this precedent still stands, but it gave jurists heartburn at the time. Archived copies of the Kansas City Sunday Sun are likewise believed to be as rare as hen’s teeth, so to speak, today. No self-respecting library or archive would stock the scandal-filled paper in its own day of public infamy. It is thus not clear what, if any, institution has preserved a copy to this day. Online searches of library catalogs have turned up nothing promising. The taboo of the scandals may have actually succeeded in keeping the specific allegations in the dirty news away from our presently prying eyes. While some of the poor souls arrested for selling the Kansas City Sunday Sun faced up to two years in a penitentiary for their crimes, Henry L. Preston only stayed jailed for about a year while awaiting a jury trial. The truth of a statement, it was ruled, was not a sufficient defense against a charge of libel. Even true articles could be libelous if they were sufficiently harmful to an individual’s name

and reputation without hard proof, including exact places and dates when hanky panky occurred. But signs are that Mr. Preston may have had the funds to hire a good lawyer, for he was acquitted by a jury at trial. The Kansas City Sunday Sun ceased publication with the arrest of Henry Preston in 1896. When he was released from custody the next year, he went back to newspaper work, but not in a way that stepped so far over so many legal lines and limits as the Sun had. Perhaps the long-ago actors in the old glass negatives were acting out a play about the Kansas City Sunday Sun itself. But we’ll probably never know because their written storyboard, like the mysterious scandals of Sunday Sun lore, is gone.

P H I L I P OW E N Creates “Twisted Sticks” Story & Photos by BEVERLY KERR

Now & Then

| 24

Photo Left: Some of these canes and walking sticks are ones that Philip made, and some he has collected from all over the world. Photo Below: His canes and walking sticks have been displayed at various festivals in our area. Here Philip holds one of his favorites.


soft-spoken gentleman exhibits a surprising hidden talent – taking pieces of wood, and turning them into beautiful canes and walking sticks with intricate designs. Philip Owen made his first walking stick as a young boy of seven or eight years old in Rawlinsville, PA. Illness dominated his childhood, and Philip will admit, “I was spoiled rotten.” Often when walking to check on the cows, he would pick up a stick and begin carving it. As a youngster, Philip had tuberculosis and was in a sanitarium for eleven months one time, and twenty-two months the next. During that last visit in 1946, Philip said he was “a streptomycin guinea pig”. They administered one hundred forty-four shots of streptomycin to Philip and one other young man. Both were cured. With this new discovery, it wasn’t long before the sanitarium was closed.

During his lifetime he has made, given away, traded or sold many walking sticks and canes. At this time, he is working on numbers 1105 and 1106 out of American chestnut, a rare wood with a beautiful grain. These creations have been shipped all over the world. Many kinds of wood make up these walking sticks and canes. One of his favorite designs was free-lanced on PA rosebud. Since the canes and sticks must be strong as well as beautiful, he favors using maple, walnut and cherry wood. It might surprise you to learn that the structure of the sticks depends on whether an individual prefers using their right or left hand. One thing of which he should be extremely proud is the fact that he has carved canes for five US Presidents - from Richard Nixon to George Bush. Even more interesting, he has received thank-you notes from all of them including their signatures. Philip hopes that his grandson will someday appreciate having those special treasures. In 1988, Philip Owen’s nephew, Mike Huber, had a 40th birthday. Philip made a cane for him as a joke since Mike was now “going down hill”. Along with the birthday greetings, Philip said, “You are hereby appointed President of ANCC.” Those letters stood for American National Cane Collectors, which was later changed to the American National Cane Club to include makers not just collectors. Philip volunteered to be the Secretary/ Treasurer so they had two members. This organization’s newsletter became known as “The Twisted Stick.” Two years ago, Philip carved a right-handed walking stick for this gypsy. He included some of my favorite things on the stick – bears. Many knots were cleverly turned into bear heads. On each stick, Philip puts his signature – a heart containing his initials and a cross in the center with John 3:16 under the heart. Above the heart is the number of the cane. My walking stick almost always stays in the trunk of my car to be used when walking over rough territory, or even in the snow. Gypsy Bev is written around the top so it’s not bound to get mixed up with someone else’s. Family is very important to Philip as he grew up in a loving family of twelve children. He was number eleven, his twin brother number twelve. His love of another hobby, quilting, began with his parents. His father cut out the squares for each of the twelve children to have “Grandmother’s Flower Garden”, then his mother sewed them together. Families are like quilts – pieced

together and stitched with love. Quilts he has made include a novel “necktie quilt”. The idea came when a friend gave him a large pile of neckties. It seems Philip likes free things, in fact his wife often said, “Don’t offer Philip anything free, or he’ll take it.” And it appears he puts these things to creative use. Right now he’s in the process of making a quilt called “Around the World” for a missionary in their church. He has 800 pieces laid out for the quilt. The center is red for the blood shed by Jesus, surrounded by white to signify salvation, and then a row of heavenly blue. The rest is alternate rows of print and solid colors. Even he admits, “I sometimes get carried away.” On the wall of his apartment, he proudly displays a picture of his grandfather. On each side are framed pieces of a quilt given to his grandfather by his church congregation. Philip’s sister took it apart as it was beginning to fray and framed a piece of it for each of the twelve children. Today Philip lives in Cambridge, Ohio where he keeps busy giving free lessons to those interested in making

canes, walking sticks, baskets or wall plaques. He also teaches a special class on how to write you Life Story. Since he is a retired minister, he enjoys conducting Bible study at the Senior Center. When you consider that Philip is 88 years old, you can see why he feels blessed and wants to share his knowledge with others. Philip and his wife, Gene, had three children, who have followed in his footsteps. Joel and Philip are pastors, while daughter Barbara has served several years as a missionary. A grandson is following that path also, making four generations of pastors in their family. In Philip’s words, “The most important thing in life is to know God’s will...and do it.” When asked if he wished he could have done anything else in life, Philip responded, “If I were able, I’d have a garbage collection business.” He sees so many things thrown away that could possibly be recycled into something new. His creative mind never sleeps. Contact Bev at or follow her blog at
