Healthy lunches benefitting W. Holmes students, school By KELLEY MOHR Staff Writer More than a year of healthy school lunches has finally paid off for West Holmes cafeterias. The Ohio Department of Education approved Director of Cafeteria Services Dixie Gray’s application to receive an additional 6 cents per student reimbursable lunch, as the school complied with meal pattern requirements set forth by the ODE Office for Child Nutrition. Making the transition from pizza and French fries to healthier offerings of fruits, vegetables and whole grains in the wake the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, West Holmes school

lunches now focus on nutrition, explained Gray. The HHFKA, which was championed by Michelle Obama and signed by President Obama, focuses on aligning school meals with the latest nutritional science. According to the new guidelines for lunch, there should be five food components offered to students — skim milk, fruit, vegetable, grain and meat/meat alternative. A student may choose all five components or may decline up to two components. However, high school students must take at least a half-cup of either a fruit or a vegetable or may choose a quarter cup of both fruit and a vegetable. For the week of Dec.

17-20, for example, WHHS students had daily healthy meal choices: A chicken bowl with the choice of corn or mashed potatoes, a turkey wrap with lettuce, tomatoes and cheese or barbecue rib patty with vegetables or fruit, a pizza burger or meatball sub with green beans, carrots and celery and a chicken patty sandwich with broccoli and a tossed salad. To be approved, Gray submitted certification documentation via the State Claims Reimbursement and Reporting System. Gray submitted weekly menus and nutritional values to the state system, which had to meaSee Pg. 4 — LUNCHES

Holmes commissioners wrapping up business for the year By CHRISTINE L. PRATT Staff Writer In their last meeting of the calendar year, the Holmes County commissioners wrapped up some last minute business, but also got a bit of good news about the county’s financial situation. To cover outstanding expenses and satisfy lastminute obligations, the commissioners approved 42 transfers within funds,

two transfers between funds and 11 supplemental appropriations. But, as they balanced the funds within the county budget, they simultaneously learned that it is anticipated that $335,284 in unspent appropriations will be coming back to the general fund from the county’s various offices and departments. That news came from Michelle Gerber, deputy auditor, who said that of

the $10.5 million budgeted, only about $10.2 million was spent. “I think that the taxpayers of Holmes County should be very grateful,” said Commissioner Ray Eyler, noting it is because of great diligence and frugality, exercised by department heads and elected officials the county general fund has seen a turnaround. Gerber said she anticipates, including what is

Community Peaceful potato-chip eating goes way bad There are really specific moments in parenting that make it all worth the while. Obviously, I could name a few of the sentimental ones, like when they first say “I love you,” or take their first steps or twowheeled bike ride, or other such sappiness. Instead I’m going to tell you the story of one such moment that keeps me giggling and wiping the tears away from my wounded eye each time I think of it. We have three children, and the odds of them ever going to sleep soundly and early are truly not in our favor. It seems someone always needs something or simply can’t sleep, or by the time they all fall asleep the two of us are so exhausted we collapse on the spot. So it goes without saying when the miraculous happens and we hear all three kids snoring away and we’re still awake, we do what we rarely get to do. We sit on the couch and read books. And we drink hot tea and beverages that

stain carpet and burn skin when knocked over. And we do not have to listen to the roar of children’s programming on television. It is a real treat, to say the least. It happened to be a dark winter night when we found ourselves in just this situation. He sat himself on a chair with the soft glow of his eReader lighting his night, and I on the couch snuggled under a blanket with an actual paper book I had started about the time paper was invented and was finally getting a chance to finish. A puppy curled up at my feet, we were basking in the peacefulness of the evening. Engrossed in my book, I didn’t see him get up and head to the pantry for a bag of potato chips. In our house, chips are coveted. Knowing a bag will be devoured in mere

seconds by people who should not be eating a bag of potato chips, I rarely purchase them, so I knew just what he was doing. He was having a snack knowing full well the slumbering kids would not rip it from his hands and inhale every last crumb. And although I didn’t see him, I heard him. The telltale “crunch” of a good, solid kettle cooked bit of tasty wonder that made me start to salivate. Instantly, I could think of nothing else and even though my waistline was saying “no!” my taste buds could take it no longer. “Durnnit. Now I need some chips,” I said and uncovered myself and stood up to reach for the bag. Funny things happen when you’ve been married for a while. You know each other’s wants and needs and it so happens the instant I stood up to reach for a chip, he tossed a nice, crisp, big one in my direction. I imagine in slow motion it would have been quite epic because somehow, against all odds and laws of physics, that

potato chip he tossed hit me square in the eye. Not near the eye, not the eyebrow, not even between the eyes. He literally chipped my eye out. If you’ve ever been hit with a kettle chip in the ol’ peeper, you know the salty pain that follows. You know the feeling of your poor eyeball being bruised by a snack high in fat and calories. I’m guessing, however, most people don’t. Let me tell you, your eye begins to water, you clutch your face in pain and you double over laughing so loud waking up the kids would be OK because this is the funniest thing that’s happened to you in weeks. Once you realize you haven’t lost vision, you’re good to go. For me, eventually the pain subsided and I settled back in with my book and my blanket and a tissue to wipe my weeping eye. And, of course, the whole rest of the bag of chips. Send eyeball condolences to

Today’s world is complex; moral standards are more elastic than a rubber band. Concepts of right and wrong are stretched in convenient directions. How can we survive the whirl of conflicting philosophies and revolving door values? What is the simple truth for today? The truth for today is and has always been found in God’s Word. The Bible has inspired great leaders throughout time; its unchanging principles can guide you through today and a maze of tomorrows. As you worship this week give thanks to God for His Truth, the simple truth.

A vaguely planned escape from the holidays You know someone like my mother-in-law. Overbearing control freaks are all around us. There’s typically one in every workplace. They crop up on committees and councils. One might even coach your kid’s youth sports team. The nice thing about encountering this unique and endearing personality type in those situations is that you at least have a few options for dealing with it. You can get another job, you can volunteer for a different committee, and you can hope for a better tee ball coach next year; but when you’re married to the lovely and amazingly wonderful daughter of a pathological crazy-maker your options are decidedly limited. I can almost see your mouths dropping open as you read these words. And I can practically hear you mumbling something like, “Lorson is really going to get it when his mother-in-law reads this!”

The truth is she won’t read it. Kristin and I have been at this business of sharing our family’s adventures for 16 years straight — that’s 832 weeks in a row — and I’d wager my wellworn station wagon that mother-in-law has yet to read a dozen of them. I’m cool with that — after all, she’s one of my favorite subjects, and I’d hate to cause a family rift over something as trivial as our life’s work. The holiday season is when mother-in-law really flashes her fangs. And believe me, I could go into endless, venomous detail about all of the ways in which she makes my life a monthlong misery beginning at Thanksgiving each year, but the truth is I actually owe her a thank you this

time around! This year Thanksgiving was such a hopeless train wreck of uncomfortable moments and unfulfilled expectations that on the drive home we hatched a plan to save Christmas from a similar fate. “Hey, what if we just took off for Christmas?” I said, breaking the posttraumatic silence that so often consumes the car as we travel home from such events. “If we just get the heck out of here, we won’t have to deal with the inevitable Christmas fiasco at all!” Within hours our plan was in place: We would pack the family into the Suburban and start driving south until we ran into temperatures of around 75 degrees, then we’d turn left and drive until we found the ocean. An intentionally vague plan, the only real objective (aside from escaping the Christmas wrath, of course) was to find a bit of sand and sun for our little family unit. No presents, no tree, no crazy relatives; just a

chance to seek out our own little smidgen of peace on Earth.

Kristin and I hope your Christmas was merry and wish you all a

healthy, happy, prosperous and especially fun New Year.

Winter Story Celebrations helps kindergarten transition lary, letter recognition and repetition, skills that will help prepare children for entering school, she said. Then, Story Celebrations involve more stories, a song or an action rhyme and a craft appropriate for the theme. For example, said Skolmutch, if the theme is winter animals, the children will do a craft involving a penguin or a polar bear, “with possibly a little assistance from mom. It’s something that mom and child can do together and allows kids to have a safe environment to try something new.” Children can learn to use markers appropriately in a supervised, nonmessy setting, or learn the etiquette required when handling scissors. “In addition to being something fun that the kids enjoy, the crafts help build motor skills, such as the ability to use scissors, and they do artwork to get them familiar with that. So they have a chance to use (those skills) before they get to kindergarten where they are exposed to all those materials,” Skolmutch said.

Story Celebrations also can familiarize children to the school environment in other ways. “It gives kids a new environment and exposes kids to being with other people so that when they go to school, being with a group is not such a foreign thing. Story Celebrations teaches routine and how to interact with other kids their age,” Skolmutch said. Wintertime is an excellent season to invite children and parents into the library, added Skolmutch. “The excitement of Christmas is over, kids have cabin fever and it’s a great activity for moms because when they come to the library, not only is (it) something to do with their child but there is

something for the whole family,” she said. “They can take a brake from the TV.” In addition, the library offers a warm respite from the cold, with plenty of books to choose from. “Who doesn’t want to snuggle up with a cup of coca and read a book?” asked Skolmutch. “There

are comfy places in our children’s room where they can snuggle up with their child and read a book together.” All children between the ages of two and five are encouraged to attend. Beginning Jan. 16 and running through Feb. 6, Central Branch Story Celebrations will be held

By KELLEY MOHR Staff Writer Children can discover a new world this season with Winter Story Celebrations at the Holmes County District Public Central Library in Millersburg. Children ages 2-5 are invited along with their parents and caregivers to join the Children’s Department for stories, songs, crafts and more. The Story Celebrations, however, are more than just story time. Through fun activities, children will learn skills to help them transition into preschool and kindergarten, said head of Children’s Services Michelle Skolmutch. In the Children’s Department, Ellen Weaver chooses a theme and a corresponding picture book to actively engage children in the act of reading. “In between reading, she teaches the children finger play or some activity that helps reinforce — without the kids actually knowing it — what kids need to understand in order to become readers,” Skolmutch said.

It’s a marshmallow world in the winter

By BARB LUMLEY Columnist “It’s a marshmallow world in the winter, when the snow comes to cover the ground. It’s a time for play, it’s a whipped cream day, I wait for it all year round.” These are lines from a song written in 1949 by Carl Segman, and recorded and made popular by Dean Martin. It has been a “marshmallow world” the last few days, as we have had lots of snow. It is January and this kind of weather is to be expected. Children will be happy,

as they can try out the new sleds Santa brought. They can build snowmen and forts, and have snowball fights. They will return to the house with rosy red cheeks, soaking wet clothes and smiles on their faces. Years ago on snowy days Grandma would sit in her rocker close to the fireplace, with her mending basket at her side, and she would sew on buttons, darn socks and put patches on pants. I wonder how many of today’s housewives know the “art” of patching pants? Today

those jeans come with the holes already in them and at a high price when purchased new. Grandma would be amazed! Keep the coffee pot on, as seed and fertilizer salesmen will be knocking at the door. They will be encouraging you to “think spring” and plan ahead for the crops you want to plant this year. Seed catalogs will be arriving with mouth watering pictures of tomatoes, corn, etc. and beautiful flowers on the cover. It is interesting how a snowstorm is the one

thing that can bring almost everything to a grinding halt. A comment was made the other day as to what a shame it was to have such a nice snowstorm on a day when there was no school! We are lucky to have the equipment in this day and age to get moving again. Years ago it was sometimes weeks before everyone was plowed out! It’s the time of year for hot soup and lots of it. On these cold, snowy days it seems to be the one type of food that satisfies most. There are so

many kinds to make and enjoy, and they all seem to be “soup for the soul.” We are all being encouraged to eat healthy and most soups fill that bill. Darkness comes early in the evenings. It’s a good time to curl up in an easy chair and read a good book. The local libraries are filled with books of all kinds. How about a steaming cup of hot cocoa topped with whipped cream or a cup of your favorite herbal tea. You could put on some soft music, kick back, close your eyes and just relax and enjoy.

Or rent a movie that you have wanted to watch. Just don’t relax too much or you might just nod off and miss a few scenes. Set up a card table and put together a big puzzle. Sometimes it takes hours to find where that piece with a little bit of red on the tip goes! If none of these things appeal to you, call up a friend and just talk awhile. On these dark, dreary, snowy January days there are lots of enjoyable things to do to get you through them. And remember, spring is on the way!

Greenhand Lock-in night of fun for freshmen On Nov. 16-17, West Holmes FFA held the annual Greenhand LockIn in the High School gymnasium. At this lock-in, the freshman members participated in a fun and educational evening geared to preparing them for success in their FFA careers. The evening started out with icebreakers prepared by the seniors and officers with added participation from the state officers in attendance Casey Schlauch, Adam Rine and Nicole Stiener. Casey and Nicole are currently serving the Ohio FFA as District officers,

and Adam is the Ohio FFA Sentinel. After the icebreakers, the freshman members broke into groups with the state officers to participate in their workshop. The workshop allowed members to create their own “FFA Jacket” where they put where they wanted to be in FFA and what they want to do, which allowed them to be creative and put specific goals they had set for the year. Then with the small individual jackets, they created a large jacket. Once the workshop ended, freshman members enjoyed watching a

humorous parliamentary procedure presentation. After the presentation, the freshmen attended a wide variety of sessions prepared by the seniors and officers. The presentations highlighted a wide range of events and opportunities through FFA ranging from contests to community service to member development. Each of the activities highlighted an activity or part of the FFA. After the short demos, the freshmen had the opportunity to run for a Greenhand office.

A Savvy Stop for Mindful Buyers 10098065

Don’t Forget Finances When Making Resolutions When the time comes to make New Year’s resolutions, the conventional wisdom is to focus on weight. Such wisdom is understandable, as many people spend the holiday season indulging in big meals and all the treats synonymous with having fun. While it’s acceptable to make healthy resolutions, a slimmer waist and a healthier diet should not be the only goals for the year ahead. In light of the last several years, it’s important for men and women to make financial resolutions for the year ahead, too. No one can say with certainty when, or if, the economy will rebound, and men and women should look at the New Year as a suitable time to make some financial resolutions for the future. Reassess your investment plan. Since 2008, the market has been up and down like a roller coaster. Those who have weathered the storm have no doubt witnessed big gains and significant losses over the last few years, and the turn of the calendar is a great time to reassess investments and possibly make some changes. Are you taking on more risk than you’re comfortable with? Is your portfolio too conservative? How well are you diversifying? Look at your investments from every angle and determine if it’s time to make some changes. Resolve to be more liquid. A 2011 poll from the National Foundation for Credit Counseling found that 64 percent of Americans would need to utilize a source other than their savings account to pay for a $1,000 unplanned expense. That percentage illustrates that most adults just don’t have

Where every purchase is a gift to the world.

enough cash on hand. This year, resolve to be more liquid. Being more liquid enables you to more effectively handle emergencies, and it also helps you avoid being forced to sell investments at the wrong time. Shake things up. If you rely on one individual to handle all of your financial needs, such a practice needs to change. No matter how much you trust this person, don’t fall into a trap where one person acts as your financial svengali. Such an arrangement proved very costly to those men and women who trusted the likes of Bernie Madoff, a once-prominent financier who turned out to be nothing more than a criminal mastermind orchestrating history’s largest Ponzi scheme. This year, if you haven’t done so already, make sure your financial advisor, money manager, custodian, and trustee are all different people. Negotiate lower rates. Use the onset of the New Year as a chance to negotiate newer and lower interest rates on existing loans or credit cards. If you have exercised financial responsibility over the last 12 months, paying

down debts and paying all bills on time, this is the perfect time to negotiate lower rates and reap the rewards of your good behavior. Don’t invest in anything you don’t understand. Too often investors get caught up in so-called expert forecasts and act impulsively based on the advice of some talking head they see on television or hear on the radio. Unfortunately, such “experts” aren’t always certified financial professionals, and some might even have ulterior motives for pushing certain investments and shunning others. What’s more, few people know the track record of these “experts,” so their advice should not be taken at face value. A simple rule for the year ahead should be to never invest in anything you don’t understand. If an investment opportunity seems worthwhile, do all of your homework to gain a solid understanding of the opportunity before investing any money. Healthy resolutions go beyond a slimmer waist and a healthier diet. This year, resolve to get healthier financially as well.

Schlabach had lots of reasons to be thankful By ART HOLDEN Outdoor Editor Mark Schlabach didn’t sit down to a Thanksgiving dinner. He was mighty thankful, though. With his family out of town, the Mount Hope man went hunting Thanksgiving Day, and returned with a northern Coshocton bruiser that’s been on the radar of many a hunter west of New Bedford. “If I didn’t see anything, I was going to squirrel hunt,” said Schlabach, a salesman for Keim Lumber in Charm. “Then this thing came along at 8 a.m. I was fortunate just to get a shot at him. A lot of things went right for me that morning.” Schlabach, 27, was hunting on property of a Keim Lumber co-worker, and many a deer enthusiast in the area knew of the 22-pointer. It had showed up on trail cameras for years, and by some estimations, was 5 1/2 years old, “maybe 6 1/2.” “We started in the summer hanging stands,” said Schlabach, who goes by the nickname, ‘Beef.’ “But then I started second guessing my choice to hunt the property, because I wasn’t seeing deer. The crops on the property are all on the perimeter, so there’s no bedding areas to keep the deer. We would only catch deer passing through.” But the more Schlabach hunted, the more deer he started seeing. “I passed up a couple

“It is a blessing to be alive, walking and hunting.” Mark Schlabach 130-class bucks,” he said. “I’m glad I did.” The fact Schlabach was in the woods on Thanksgiving wasn’t unusual, it was just the woods that he was in that was unusual. He had planned to hunt that week in West Virginia as he had done in the past, but the land he had permission to hunt on was sold weeks earlier, and he lost his privileges. “I had the week off, so I figured I might as well stay home and hunt in Coshocton. I hunted the same stand three days that week,” said Schlabach Even the fact that Schlabach could go hunting is a story, as two years ago he was riding a motorcycle and collided with a van. He broke every limb on his body and was laid up in bed for four months. “It is a blessing to be alive, walking and hunting,” said Schlabach. As for his Thanksgiving Day hunt, Schlabach was set up close to a pile of corn, figuring that with the rut over, the big bucks would be hungry, and that’s exactly what happed. Showing no fear, the bruiser walked right in on Schlabach, eyeing him in the process. “He knew the stand was there, but he wasn’t scared,” said Schlabach. “He wanted to get something to eat.”


‘Beef’ was in a predicament, though, as the buck didn’t offer a shot, never quartering toward or away from Schlabach. “He looked at me three different times,” said Schlabach, who arrowed the big buck with a PSE crossbow and an arrow tipped with a Rage twoblade broadhead. “I told myself, ‘the first shot I get, I’m going to take it.’” Although Schlabach called the shot risky, it worked out, as he aimed high and tight over the deer’s shoulder, and the arrow caught a rib and ricocheted into the buck’s lungs. “I didn’t feel confident in the shot,” Schlabach said. “(The deer) took off, and I could see the arrow didn’t go through. I was a complete wreck. I took my phone out and called my buddies, and they talked me into letting him lay, not to track him and have him run off. “So we went and had some coffee, and I told them about the shot. They reassured me it was a good shot.” Schlabach and his friends went back a couple hours later to track the deer, and found it some 150 yards from where it was shot. The buck, which hasn’t been officially scored, has 26-inch main beams, an 18-inch inside spread, and its right G2 is almost 12 inches long. It has one drop tine. “They found last year’s sheds from this deer and it had two drop tines,” said Schlabach. “Last year it scored 213, but I don’t think it’s that big this year. I think it was on the downhill side of its life. But, it did pick up nearly an inch in mass at the base of his antlers.”

Mark “Beef” Schlabach, of Mount Hope, went hunting on Thanksgiving morning and arrowed this majestic 22-pointer in northern Coshocton County. Schlabach’s friends put a tape to the buck and it is still in the 200 class. “I never expected to

see him that day,” said Schlabach, who estimates he’s shot 20 deer over the years. “I’ve never shot anything

bigger than a basket 8 before ... But the way this hunt turned out, this thing must have had my name on it.”

The Holmes County Shopper News

Rohskopf falls to St. Ed’s Bright in 145 final “He’s the third or fourthbest wrestler in the country.” Bright led 4-2 after the first period, scoring two takedowns against Rohskopf. Another takedown in the second, and after the West Holmes senior scored an escape to start the third, Bright notched a counter move for the final score. “He’s one of the best kids in the country, so I know where I’m at,” Rohskopf said. “He did everything I expected him to do. I didn’t do everything I expected myself to do. He wrestled his match and he took me out of mine.” “That’s why we come here to face competi-

SPORTS FANS! Who Am I? Since becoming a starting quarterback in the NFL in 2006, I ranked second in total passing yards entering the 2012 season (25,288), second in wins (66), third in touchdowns (170), third in yards per attempt (8.0), and sixth in passer rating (95.7). Any guesses? The answer is San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers, who led the Chargers to four straight playoff appearances from 2006 through 2009, but had yet to carry them to a Super Bowl appearance. It might have come as a surprise to NBA fans that Randy Wittman was still a head coach at the start of the 201112 season, his third with Washington after stops in Cleveland and Minnesota. Overall, Wittman’s record as a head coach was 118-238, never winning more than 32 games in any one season. That’s a winning percentage of .331 – not only the lowest among active NBA coaches, but also the lowest in league history for anybody who has coached at least 350 games. Among the college football teams that appeared in the BCS title game since 2000, the 2005 Trojans of Southern California and the 2001 Miami Hurricanes shared the mark for most players drafted into the NFL in the top three rounds with 24 apiece, well ahead of the next highest, 2005 Texas with 15. But based on performance at the NFL level, it’s Miami over Southern Cal by a lot. Those 24 Hurricanes had played a combined 176 NFL seasons through 2011 and made an astounding 36 combined Pro Bowls. The 24 Trojans – 107 combined seasons and a mere eight Pro Bowls entering the 2012 campaign.

tion like that,” Woods said. “Now we know what we’ve got to work on.” Rohskopf’s first loss dropped his ledger to 15-1 on the season. In the battle for third place at 126 pounds, Tuslaw’s Dion Perez took on another Eagle, St. Ed’s senior Chance Driscol. Driscol took control right from the start taking a 6-1 lead in the first period and rolled to a 9-1 major decision to claim third place. “He was quick on his shots,” Perez said. “I don’t know if I was completely mentally ready.” The Mustang senior said he wasn’t intimidated going up against the St. Ed’s senior. “I don’t get intimidated. I just try to go out and wrestle my best,” he said.   St. Ed’s led in the team standings heading into the finals, and their strong showing did little to hurt the Eagles’ chances of letting the lead slip away. Perry was second, followed by Detroit Central Catholic and Cuyahoga

Valley Christian Academy. Tuslaw was tied at 26th. West Holmes was 30th and Northwestern 31st. Kevin Lynch can be reached at 330-674-5676 or
