JACKSON— The long arm of the law worked like a well oiled machine Tuesday when a Jackson Police Officer was able to nab two suspects just minutes after they burglarized a home on Pattonsville Road. What the suspects didn’t know was that the homeowner was just across the street at the time of the burglary and when the neighbor’s son asked him who was driving the white car in his driveway he was able to follow the subjects for a short time, while calling their license plate number in to the Jackson County Sheriff’s dispatcher. The information went out over the radio immediately and within minutes Jackson Police Officer Jim Callahan had the two suspects pulled over in the Main Express parking lot at 279 Chillicothe Pike. Two males were arrested but had not been charged by press time, so no names have been released. Law enforcement officers did release that the arrestees were in their mid to late twenties,

Black Friday begins the holiday shopping season BY JENNIFER HUGHES

Some have been counting down the days, others see it as a day of dread. Black Friday is a day filled with shopping, long lines, and the never ending hunt for the best deals on holiday gifts. It occurs each year on the day following Thanksgiving and offers deep discounts from retailers, which means a brighter holiday for some. Simply, Black Friday is deemed the first official shopping day of the holiday season. The name “Black Friday”comes from accounting terms. Accountants will tell you that ” in the black” means that a positive profit margin is reached, while “in the red” means there was a negative profit margin. Businesses in the last five years have been serving up the hype to have strong profits to propel strong holiday profit margins. In today’s Jackson County Times-Journal, besides the advertising printed inside, there are 13 inserts from businesses promoting their sales. Many of those businesses have Black Friday specific deep discounted sales. The National Retail Federation offers the following Black Friday shopping tips: Before Black Friday

“What are you thankful for this year?”

JACKSON— When searching for someone to look up to with admiration and respect, one doesn’t have to look far, but seldom is it someone at the tender age of eight who teaches everyone else a thing or two about life. That is exactly the case with 8-year-old Olivia Sheward, a third grade student at Christian Life Academy (CLA) in Jackson. She has had a project in her mind that began with the scorching hot days of summer. It was at that time that Olivia told her mother, June Sheward, “I want to give bibles and water to people while it is so hot.” June said Olivia continued in her persistence of wanting to help others and the original plan evolved into “Olivia’s Dream Tree” on display at the Heaven

JACKSON—Several issues were discussed during Tuesday’s meeting of the Jackson County Commissioners. Jackson County Auditor Clyde Holdren said that his office is preparing for the sale of 2012 dog tags, which will begin on Dec. 1. Although details about the specific locations where tags can be purchased are not yet available, Holdren said that the licenses will still cost $12 and are for dogs at least three months of age. A $60 kennel fee will be charged for up to five dogs, with a $2 additional charge for each animal after the first five. A mail-out will be sent on the 30th to remind previous license holders to purchase their tags for the new year. Tags will be available for purchase from Dec. 1 to Jan. 31 at a number of locations throughout the county. They can also be purchased online at On a different note, Holdren presented the commissioners with a sales tax report for the month of November. According to the report, Jackson County brought in $120,338.49 for November of this year, down $5,072.63 from last November. After the first 11 months of the year, Jackson County is down a total of $11,021.31 from 2010. The commissioners also approved a new fund, Fund 102 Severance-General. According to Commissioner Jim Riepenhoff, the county pays 100 percent of comp and vacation time and a percentage of sick time, upon an employee’s retirement. This fund will be used to save money to pay those costs when employees retire, since many county employees have accrued a considerable amount of comp time. Jackson County Dog Warden Roy Williams submitted a report for the week of Saturday, Nov. 5 through Thursday, Nov. 10. During that time, eight animals were adopted, seven were euthanized, one was euthanized due to injury or illness, and four remained at the pound. There were 25 total animals at the pound, and he responded to 102 calls.

you save time by researching ahead of time, you’ll also save money on gas by not driving all over town. • Know retailers’ return and exchange policies. Return policies vary, so knowing ahead of time whether or not you will have to ship back returns or exchanges or if you can return them to the physical store in your area will help in the long run. On Black Friday

• If you are looking for specific advertised items, take the complete ad with you so that you don’t end up in the wrong store looking for a specific price. • Shop safely! Watch your personal belongings at all times including handbags and purchases. The stores are not responsible for any lost items so be careful, especially at the register when you can get easily distracted by the transaction itself. • Remember when gift shopping you are buying for someone else’s wants and needs, not your own. Deciding whether you like a certain item isn’t really the point… The question is, will Great Aunt Margaret like it? Having said that, don’t be afraid to take full advantage of holiday promotions you see on products you would like yourself. Treat yourself to something nice! Save yourself the guesswork and buy gift cards. They are a perfect way to let gift recipients choose what they want and a great way to stick to a budget. • When walking through the mall or down Main Street, wear comfortable shoes. You’ll be walking on a lot of marble, concrete and tile. Make sure you have water and snacks with you too, or stop for lunch. This will give you time to

check your list and prioritize the rest of the time you have that day. • When parking in a large parking lot, make sure to keep all items in the trunk of the car and out of sight. It also helps to park near a light if you know you it will be dark by the time you are done. Mentally locate the nearest security office or officers in case an emergency occurs you can easily track down appropriate personnel. After you’ve made your purchases

• Staple a gift receipt to the merchandise tag in case it needs to be returned or exchanged. Keep your original receipts with any warranty paperwork for the life of the warranty. • Save yourself the headache: let the charity group at the mall wrap your gifts for you. This will save you a lot of time and free you up to do other things on your holiday to-do lists. • Get any packages you are sending to people in the mail right away. Things are only going to get busier from here on out. Although many will be shopping to their heart’s desire on Friday, Bridget Hopper of Jackson said on Facebook, would not be venturing to the crowded stores filled with shoppers on a mission on Black Friday saying, “Are you crazy?” If you are not into the the shopping of Black Friday, look to Cyber Monday, where stores offer deep discounts and sometimes free shipping for items ordered online. Some say it is a hassle free way to get your hoilday gifts right from your own home via your internet connection. For more tips go to

SPRINGFIELD— A Washington man is facing felony drug charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers seized 28 pounds of marijuana, valued at over $63,000, following a traffic stop in Clark County. Troopers stopped a rented 2011 Chevy Cruze for a driving under suspension violation on IS 70 near milepost 54, at approximately 1:20 p.m., Monday, November 14. The renter of the vehicle was not present and at the request of the rental company the vehicle was being towed for safe keeping. During an administrative inventory drug paraphernalia was found in the vehicle’s glove box. A probable cause search revealed additional drug paraphernalia in the trunk and a gift-wrapped package containing 25 individually wrapped packages of marijuana. The driver, Robert A. Gomez, 35, of Bremerton, Wash., was charged with trafficking and possession of marijuana, both thirddegree felonies, possession of criminal tools, a fifth-degree felony, and driving under suspension, a first-degree misdemeanor. The suspect was incarcerated in the Clark County Jail. If convicted, he could face up to 21 years in prison and up to a $43,500 fine.

Bound Book Store located at 10827 Chillicothe Pike in Jackson. Olivia is a child on a mission who is determined to help those in the community with a need. Her classmates at CLA made ornaments for the tree, as did students at the Good Shepherd Wesleyan Church. The tree went up last Thursday, November 17, and already they have achieved the number of blankets and bibles anticipated, but there are still other items needed for the tree. Adult coats, gloves, hats, socks, scarves, non-perishable food items, toothpaste and toothbrushes, soap and deodorant, are all still needed.

Olivia’s project has become a family affair, with her father David, and brother Adam, helping out and supporting her in any way they can. Heaven Bound owner Arlene Music is also supporting the project by working with the family to make Olivia’s dream come true with a donation of bibles, and for being the drop off site for the needed items. The items gathered between now and the December 14 distribution date have been targeted to go to the soup kitchen at the Jackson Christian Church located at 102 Broadway Street in Jackson. June indicated that depending on the number of items they receive and the sup-

Students from CLA will also be at the soup kitchen on that date to help pass out items and to sing a few songs for those in attendance. Anyone who is unsure of what to donate, so would prefer to make a monetary donation can do so at Heaven Bound. Just give the money to Arlene or Kelly and tell them it is for Olivia’s Tree. They will do the rest. For more information contact the Heaven Bound Book Store at 288-2425.

A time to be thankful

Thanksgiving is a unique American holiday. In keeping with its tradition, I think it is right and important to give thanks. We have a lot to be concerned about, and there are many Americans currently going through tough times. Expressing gratitude does not mean that we dismiss our concerns or forget about those in need, but rather, take time to reflect on what we do have to be thankful of. First and foremost, I am very thankful to be an American. We are free to voice our opinions and disagree without fear of persecution. Moreover, we can worship God freely, and we are able to go where we want to go. Freedom is not free, and we are so blessed to have men and women across the world fighting and protecting our freedom, as well as all those who have gone before them. Here in the 87th House District, I am thankful to the voters who have given me the opportunity to serve them as their state representative. In addition, I have a strong appreciation for all the people in my life: family, friends, and all the communities that I serve, as well as my colleagues in the Ohio House. All 99 of my fellow state representatives are different, but we share a common love for our country and state. I also want to give thanks to all of the Americans who work hard to earn a living, raise their families, and pay their taxes. They are truly the backbone of our nation. This Thanksgiving, I have a few of my own personal observations. I am thankful for the lives of former Congressman Clarence Miller and my grandmother, Ruby Scites. They both passed this year, and they were great people who influenced my life. Finally, I am grateful for all of the people that are giving of themselves to ensure that others less fortunate have a brighter Thanksgiving. For those who are in need, graciously accept any help that someone may give and understand that you also have something to give in allowing yourself to receive help. Gratitude in itself is a gift. From my family to yours, I wish you all a safe and happy Thanksgiving. Rep. Carey may be reached by calling (614) 466-1366, e-mailing, or writing to State Rep.

Chaplain Crabtree speaks to J-VAC clients

Habitat for Humanity to build homes in Oak Hill

On Wednesday, Nov. 9, J-VAC Industries had a special visit from Chaplain William Crabtree of the AMVETS Post #84 of Jackson. Mr. Crabtree shared with the J-VAC staff and clientele the importance of Veterans Day and what it means to be a veteran of the armed forces of the United States. The J-VAC clientele had many interesting questions and Mr. Crabtree answered each one of them, also sharing a few stories from his own experiences while serving our country. J-VAC would like to thank Mr. Crabtree and all the other veterans for their service and dedication to our nation.

Miracle’s Moment...

This Sunday will be the first Sunday in Advent. Advent is from the Latin Adventus and is a word for coming. For Christians it is about the coming of the Savior. For those who follow the church year, this is the beginning of the church year in the Western Church. Contrary to some thought, Black Friday is not a necessity to be completed before we can move on to Advent. And for church members, the season should be more than if we can

with each customer to find a solution thai best fits their needs and budget, offering a straight forward loan application with fixed rates and clear terms. Additional information may be found at “No purchase or credit application is necessary. The prize drawing is for a digital picture frame, approximate retail value of $70. OneMain Financial reserves the right to substitute a prize of at least equal value in the event of unavailability, for whatever reason, of the advertised prize. One prize will be awarded at each OneMain Financial branch. Chances of winning depend on numbers of ballots entered. One entry ballot per person. For an entry ballot and complete details, please visit your local OneMain Financial branch.

Thank you for your past support.

sing Christmas music during this part of the church year. In many families and churches we find Advent celebrated with an Advent wreath that contains four candles, one for each Sunday of Advent. Others mark the season with an Advent calendar that helps count the days until Christmas. I have seen many creative forms for such calendars. Advent for Christians should be a season of preparation. While we make many preparations for Christmas, we

need to prepare our hearts to receive the gift of the Christ child. The spirit of Advent can be seen in the parable of the bridesmaids who are anxiously awaiting the coming of the Bridegroom (Matt. 25). There is profound joy at the Bridegroom’s expected coming. And yet a warning of the need for preparation echoes through the parable. But even then, the prayer of Advent is still: Come, O Come, Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel!

“Fighting the good fight of faith” (Part 1 of 2) Victory starts with a dream The Apostle Paul said in Scriptures in his last earthly testimony: “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.” II Timothy 4:7. Writer’s Note: “The following is my personal concept of being successful and winning in life from a Christian perspective. We must as Christian believers by the grace of God and our personal faith in the Christ of Calvary’s Cross, making reference specifically to His precious atoning and redeeming shed Blood, fight back against the forces of evil in this sin-cursed world. We must not only fight back but we must also overcome individually and personally through our faith in the Christ of Calvary’s Cross. Bible references; I John 5:1a & 45, Rev. 12:11, Rev. 21:7-8. Be not deceived my friend, we are as true Christian believers engaged in spiritual warfare with Satan the devil. Therefore, we are admonished through by the following and Scriptures: Eph. 6:10-18a., James 4:7, I Peter 5:8-11. “We are more than conquerors through Christ.” Romans 8:35-39.” J.R. In regard to fighting back from a personal perspective: As a Christian, I have for may years striven earnestly and diligently by the grace of God and through my personal faith in Christ to develop and maintain a positive attitude and outlook on life based exclusively on the Holy Scriptures. It’s not been easy for I’ve had to fight and fight hard in my efforts through Christ to change a negative, defeatist attitude toward life into a positive, optimistic one. The fight is not over, it is still going on daily but I intend by the grace of God through my personal faith in Jesus Christ to ultimately win the battle. My mind-set based on the grace of God, faith in Christ, iron-willed determination and undying resolve is, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:13. God has said it in His Word, I believe it and that settles it for me personally. “I have hidden God’s Word in my heart, that I might not sin against Him.” Psalm 119:11. “Christ is my Lord.” Philippians 2:5-11. Centuries ago, the Greek Philosopher Plato stated: “Selfconquest is the greatest of all victories.” As a Christian, I am of the belief that “self-conquest through personal faith in Jesus Christ is the greatest of all victories.” Life is tough but winners are tougher. One of the main reasons that I write whether it be historically, philosophically or spiritually is for the enjoyment of others and myself. I believe we are each one in this world to contribute and we cannot live rewarding and fulfilling lives without doing so. Happiness comes on spiritual wings and we receive it through giving. Helping and encouraging others gives us reason and purpose for our existence on this earth and it

carries its own reward. Someone has well stated, “People will never care how much we know until they know how much we care.” Someone else has said, “We can give without loving but we can’t love without giving.” Always remember, “God loved and God gave.” John 3:16. If through my writings, I can console hurts, ease pain or lift loads of care, then my writings will have served their purpose and my life will not have been lived in vain. If I can light a candle of hope in the breast of a soul who is helplessly adrift on the great and stormy sea of life or bestow a rose as an act of kindness upon someone who is lonely and discouraged trying to cheer them on, the it will be worth it all. There are no insignificant people in this world; all have been created as a part of God’s plan with purpose and reason for their existence. Regardless of whoever, whatever or wherever you are, my friend, you are something special. Always do your best and always be yourself, for you are unique. There is none other in the entire universe just exactly like you. According to the Holy Scriptures, God has created you and I for His exclusive pleasure and glory. Bible reference, Revelation 4:11. We have our very own individuality and personality in respect to being gifted and talented therefore we should never feel inferior to anyone for we are not. I believe personally that success and winning in life can be found in overcoming and mastering one’s problems and difficulties and is not measured in one’s wealth or social standing. The Holy Bible confirms this: “He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be My son.” Revelation 21:7. (Note: This Scripture represents both male and female, it speaks to both genders.) Winning through Christ is for those individuals who by God’s grace, dare fearlessly to accept their lives as a continuous daily challenge, those who anticipate with eagerness each new day as something to be conquered. Winners through Christ must first through their personal faith-believing seek to conquer or master the greatest obstacle they will ever face which is themselves. A Christian must of necessity master self or self will master them and this my friend is a Scriptural fact. We can only master ourself though the Christ of Calvary’s Cross. Writer’s Note: “My prayer is that God through the Christ of Calvary’s Cross by means of the blessed Holy Spirit will anoint this writing and use it to glorify Himself in this old sincursed world and may it be done in a great and mighty way. The Holy Bible says: “Whatsoever you do, do all to the glory of God.” I Cor. 10:31b. J.R. ……To be continued next week

PRISONER OF WAR Long ago they brought me here, a prisoner of politics am I. A hunger within me yearns, but nothing here to stop the burn. Many nights and many days, no human voice has echoed my way. I wonder if my family knows, dear God I pray they do not know! I hear the shells across the sky, I see them light up the sky, But no one has rescued me. If I were ever set free I wonder as thin as I am - brain washed too, Will my family, will society accept me? Will the world and they slay me? And not understand me and all that I have gone through. Here in this very small cell, here in this desolate land? Do they know what freedom does really cost us all? This weakness of body and mind; has my country forsaken

me? I feel tired, alone, hungry and lost. I want to stand erect with pride, but my knees buckle underneath me. To be embraced tightly with loving arms, if but one more time in my life. To chase away my fears in the night, a warm blanket to break the cold, Food to end this growling in my stomach. Hear out my lonely prayer from this lonely lost soldier far, far from home. If you can but rescue me, come for me. If you can not then bring me home so that my body will but rest, rest on holy Heavenly land again. This is all that I but ask. Marcia E. Kessler Wellston

The Welsh-American Heritage Museum will hold the annual carol sing on Sunday, Nov. 27 at 3 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend. The museum has a special green songbook of Welsh and English seasonal carols and hymns that was compiled a few years ago. A special Advent hymn, sung to the hymn tune “Cwm Rhondda” by John Hughes, leads off the carol listings in this special book. Other well known Welsh tunes included in this book include “Watchman, Tell Us Of The Night”; the familiar tune is set to “Aberystwyth.” If page number seven is chosen during the carol sing, it will be “Lo He Comes With Clouds Descending,” set to the tune of “Bryn Calafaria.” Then there is “Blodwen” (“At The Name Of Jesus”) by William R. Jones. Also in Welsh and English are “Silent Night, Holy Night” in Welsh and English, “Deck The Halls,” and “Nos Galan,” an old Welsh air. It is a great little carol book for Welsh and English singers and is certain to bring out the holiday spirit. Speaking of carol sings and Christmas, don’t forget the Christmas parades on Saturday, Dec. 3 in Oak Hill, Jackson and Wellston. The Oak Hill Christmas parade will begin at 1 p.m., with line up beginning at the old Oak Hill High School parking lot and ending at the Oak Hill Teen Center where Santa Claus will be visiting with the area youth. Parade entry is free. For more information, call Tammy French, 710-1544, or leave a message at the Oak Hill Church of the Nazarene, 5777660, with your entry information. The Christmas parade in Jackson will begin at 11 a.m. All units are to be in the lineup area at the Baptist Church field on West Broadway Street by 10:30 a.m. The parade will move through the following streets: up Broadway Street, left on Main Street, continue two blocks to Locust Street, turn left on Locust Street, proceed one block and turn left on Pearl Street, proceed one block and turn right on Portsmouth Street, continue down Portsmouth Street and return to the Baptist Church field.

Red Hat Razzle Dazzle Ladies

Red Hats meet at Jenkins Nursing Home The Jackson County Red Hat Razzle Dazzle Ladies once again met for their monthly gathering at Jenkins in Wellston on Oct. 28 at noon. The theme was Halloween, and three dressed the part: Cathy Boyd, Betty Chandler, and Juanita Clark. Juanita Clark was a Chinese princess, Betty Chandler a butterfly, and Cathy Boyd was a lady vampire; other members enjoyed their costumes. The tables were set, and a beautiful banner was placed with red hats on it. Table grace was given by Rushie McAllister, and a delicious meal was served by Jenkins’ staff. The Red Hats

appreciate them for taking the time to host the meeting. Betty Saltsman stood and sang Elvis Presley’s “Are You Lonesome Tonight” and “Some Of My Favorite Things.” Saltsman also told the story about the hat she was wearing that her son had gotten her. It was called a fascinator hat and was very beautiful. She also said back around the 1940s and 50s, they also had scarves which the ladies wore, and they were also called fascinator. Food was collected for the Oak Hill Food Pantry and will be delivered by Rushie

McAllister. The next meeting will be at Holzer Assisted Living in Jackson on Nov. 18. Please do not forget to bring a non-perishable food item for the Jackson Food Pantry. There were 16 ladies present which included: Rushie McAllister, Ruth Viers, Kathy Mulhern, Betty Saltsman, Margarite Loftis, Jayne Horton, Donna McNeely, Leona Clair, Betty Chandler, Cathy Boyd, Marcy Newvahner, Sara E. Abele, Juanita Clark, Ada Balzhiser, Joan Exline, and Margaret Kimble. There were also several residents sharing lunch with

the club which included: Marie Britt, Betty Chapman, Sasie Sheets, Mary Lou McCumber, Ella Dunsmore, Ceil Geitz, Katherine Carinor, Dorothy Garrett, Chloe Fields, and Elsie Walenbarger. A Thanksgiving theme will be observed at the next meeting. Our meeting will be a week later due to the holiday. Also, we have decided to keep donating food items for the next year instead of door prizes and everyone agreed. All are invited to come and join us for some good old fashioned fun.

Open enrollment ends earlier this year, on Dec. 7 BY MARY TAYLOR Ohio Lieutenant Governor and Department of Insurance Director

Making decisions about health care coverage and your insurance needs are some of the toughest and often most complicated choices Ohioans face. Those decisions are especially important for Medicare beneficiaries, who must consider many options and what those options mean to household budgets. With Medicare’s Annual Open Enrollment Period already underway and coming to an end in just a few weeks, it is time to review and evaluate what best meets your needs. Open enrollment started this year on Oct. 15, much earlier than in past years, and will end on Dec. 7. Fortunately, the Ohio Department of Insurance has a program designated to assist Medicare beneficiaries. The Ohio Senior Health Insurance



Information Program (OSHIIP) has been helping Medicare enrollees for nearly 20 years by providing free and objective information. Our dedicated staff is standing by to walk you through all of your Medicare choices and prescription drug options. For example, Part D and Medicare Advantage plans can change year-to-year in terms of benefits offered, provider networks and premium costs. There are also programs designed to assist low income Ohioans with prescription drug costs and their Part B premiums, as well as Medigap Insurance, which covers gaps found in traditional Medicare. Ultimately, there are a number of different factors Ohioans should keep in mind to determine what plan best meets their needs while staying within their budget. Department of Insurance

staff and OSHIIP volunteers have been trained to provide free plan comparisons and prescription drug plan evaluations to all Ohio Medicare beneficiaries. Our staff travels throughout the state to participate in events in every county during the open enrollment period. Working with beneficiaries each and every day, the success stories are countless and reflect the passionate work of the Department on behalf of Ohio consumers. On a daily basis, consumers are reviewing their options with our counselors and finding ways to save money by switching plans or making

adjustments that meet each beneficiary’s unique needs. But not every Medicare enrollee necessarily needs to change plans every year. To be confident that this year’s plan is the best coverage for you in 2012, we encourage all Medicare beneficiaries to compare their options by contacting OSHIIP for a free, personalized comparison report. If you or a loved one has questions or concerns about this year’s open enrollment, please contact our staff by calling toll free at 1-800-686-1578, or read more about Medicare by visiting the Ohio Department of Insurance website at

Ohio State Statistics PASSING YARDS Braxton Miller ............ 762

COLUMBUS – It might seem that Ohio State defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins would have more incentive to play against Michigan this Saturday than most of his teammates, but he says it’s not so. Hankins, a 6-3, 335-pound sophomore, played at Detroit Southeastern High School, around 40 minutes from Michigan Stadium, but never attracted serious recruiting attention from Michigan until late in his senior season at Southeastern. He eventually got an offer from former Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez but turned it down to go to OSU.

There are no hard feelings, Hankins says. “I’m happy here so I can’t be mad about it,” he said after a 20-14 Ohio State loss to Penn State on Saturday. “They came to me at the end of my senior year and offered me a scholarship. But by that time I was committed to Ohio State, my mind was made up.”

Revenge might not be on Hankins’ mind, but redemption appears to be a huge motivator for him and his teammates, heading into the Michigan game this Saturday in Ann Arbor. Ohio State (6-5, 3-4 Big Ten) has won 10 games or more eight of the nine seasons before this one and has won at least a share of the Big Ten football championship six years in a row. After going to BCS bowls eight of the last nine seasons, the Buckeyes’ bowl destination will be considerably less glitzy this time around. So, beating Michigan (9-2, 5-2 Big Ten), as they have done every year since a 35-21 loss in 2003, can be the great healer, OSU’s players say. “At a place like this in a bad season, throw it out the window because you’ve got Michigan and people forgive you for some of that (if you beat Michigan). That’s how I’m looking at it. Let’s get this one,” center Michael Brewster said. Running back Dan Herron said, “If we get that win up there, we can change a lot of things.” Hankins said, “We’ve got to put this game behind us and focus on Michigan now. I don’t think it’s going to be too hard. It’s a tough loss but we’ve got the last game of the year against Michigan and we’re going to buckle down and get ready.” Michigan tormented Ohio State during John Cooper’s 13 seasons as the Buckeyes’ coach. Even casual fans could identify 2-10-1 as the former OSU coach’s record against the Buckeyes’ biggest rival. But the rivalry took an abrupt turn in a different direction in Jim Tressel’s 10 seasons as OSU’s coach when the Buckeyes were 9-1 against the Wolverines, including seven wins in a row since Michigan’s last win in 2003 in Michigan Stadium.

All of our veterans and guests enjoyed a beautiful ceremony and delicious food. Certificates of dedication to their country were given yo our veteran members.

At this time, all of our post would like to say a big “thank you” to the people responsible for these gifts. Thank you to Evan Davis, one of our beloved and esteemed locals living in the village, for all the materials that helped make this effort a reality.

Thanksgiving is upon us. Every year it seems to arrive all at once! (That may be a sign of me getting older.) I finally got my menu planned and did my good shopping on Sunday, so I guess I’m as ready as I can be. My children aren’t coming home, so I’ll spend my day with close friends. Suedell’s family can’t get together until Friday, so we will celebrate then. That will give us two days of over-indulging of good food. When we step on our scales on Saturday they will say, “One person at a time please!” Thanksgiving always brings a bit of sadness to our family, as my brother, Danny Holtz, lost his life in the line of duty 24 years ago on the day before Thanksgiving. Danny served on the Wellston Fire Department for many years. Danny was a hero and my personal hero. I had a great love for my brother. He was thoughtful, loving, and always had a deep care for his family and the community, and he was barrels of fun. He is still greatly missed by Emma, Patty, Carolyn, Ron, Mandy, Carrie, me, and the Wellston Fire Department. Thanksgiving Day brings the Macy’s parade. We have always enjoyed watching the parade on television. One of my favorites is the Radio City Rockettes. I love watching them dance. If Suedell and I would try kicking as high as those girls, we would be in traction for the rest of our lives, never to move again! I also enjoy Santa making his grand appearance. Several of us went to Kingston Saturday night to

enjoy karaoke. The establishment had a pool table, and Ira “The Hustler” Crabtree was beaten fair and square by Kathy “Minnesota Fats” Fugett. We were all quite shocked that “The Hustler” finally lost a game, but he took it very well. We were all proud of ol’ “Minnesota Fats.” Arnold Tripp had some health problems last week and was in the hospital. He is at home now. We all wish Arnold a speedy recovery. Please remember him in your prayers. The Sleigh Bell Ball will be held on Saturday, Dec. 3, at the memorial building in Jackson, from 7 to 11 p.m. We are all looking forward to the ball, as we have been planning our evening out for a couple of months. It will be a great time! The biggest shopping day ever, “Black Friday,” is nearly here. I know many people have been studying the sale fliers, making their lists, and planning their strategies. I wish them luck and safe shopping. Birthday greetings go out to Mandy, Dennis and Marcella Young. I wish them a happy day and many more! There is no household hint this week. Just enjoy your time with family and friends, and don’t worry about house cleaning chores or clean-ups! Happy Thanksgiving to all; we have so much to be thankful for and so many blessings to count. You can reach me at 120-A West Second Street or drop a note in my mailbox with any news you may have. Always thank a veteran. God Bless America!

Wellston rises up to build a field of dreams BY CRYSTAL DAVIS HUTCHINS OSBA Journal Editor

WELLSTON— They built it and people have most definitely come to Wellston City’s new field of dreams. But this field of dreams is not a baseball field, it’s a high school football field, and stadium brought back to life, bringing life back to its economically struggling community in the process. “Our community has been plagued by fiscal emergency, burglary and drugs and this has really brought back an instilled pride in our community,” said Wellston school board Vice President Gretchen Crabtree. You might say Crabtree is fittingly named as she is the one who planted the first seed for Wellston’s field of dreams a seed the entire community eventually had a hand in cultivating. It all began after Crabtree, a member of OSBA’s Southeast Region Executive Committee, received an email in January from OSBA Southeast Regional Manager Paul Mock. “Rob Delane, OSBA’s deputy executive director, received a call from Brad Hebert of ESPN, who’s in charge of producing the ‘RISE UP’ television program,” Mock said. “Hebert needed to get an idea of what schools might qualify for ‘RISE UP’ … I fired off an email to all of my executive committee members and told them to give me names of schools from their home districts that they thought would qualify. I forwarded those onto Hebert and told him good luck, because there are a lot of school districts in this part of the state that could benefit from ESPN’s program.” ESPN’s TV series “RISE UP” was in the process of selecting four schools nationwide to receive renovations of their athletic facilities. The show had already selected Eleanor McMain Secondary School in New Orleans, the first public school to re-open after Hurricane Katrina, as the first renovation recipient. “RISE UP” producers contacted OSBA specifically looking to choose a district in southeast Ohio, at the request of co-host and Ohio State football and NFL star Chris Spielman. When Crabtree received Mock’s email, she quickly got the ball rolling. “I was so excited and thrilled, so I typed out a long email to Paul right away explaining why Wellston should be selected,” Crabtree said. “Superintendent (Karen) Boch went out in the snow and took pictures (of the facilities), she submitted them, and on Tuesday, received a phone call that they’d be in town on Thursday. Chris Spielman and the crew came and the kids were out of school, so they didn’t have a clue.” Rays of hope help the dream grow ESPN wanted to keep the selection process secret because they didn’t want students to get their hopes up. After all, Wellston has faced blow after blow in recent years. The region has a long history of plant closures and, in 2009, the state auditor declared Wellston to be in fiscal emergency. Money was so tight that city turned off its streetlights to reduce costs. Wellston schools faced constant calamity days because the city couldn’t afford to plow snow from the streets and the district recycled athletic uniforms every year to save money. Wellston’s stadium, C.H. Jones Field, was built in 1935 or 1936. Due to the dilapidated condition of the school’s track, located behind the field, Wellston stop hosting track

Southview names spelling bee winners

Southview’s fifth grade students participated in the school spelling bee to advance to the district spelling bee. The top three spellers advance, with the fourth place speller serving as an alternate. All who participated did an excellent job, as they had to qualify to be in the spelling bee. In fourth place was Elizabeth Tackett; in third place was Haley Webb; in second place was Danny Hong; and the Southview winner was Tate White. These students will participate in the District Spelling Bee on November 29 at Jackson Middle School beginning at 6:30 p.m.

They kept reappearing and reappearing and it wasn’t until May that they announced their choice.” Celebrating the crop to come During an assembly on the last day of school, students were told the good news by Spielman and Sheri Derrow, the wife of longtime Wellston High basketball and baseball coach Jim Derrow, who died unexpectedly on May 16 of a heart attack. Within a twoweek time span, Derrow and physical education teacher Tony DeCastro passed away, leaving the district in a state of mourning. DeCastro taught in the district for 36 years before his retirement. He died after a battle with cancer. Derrow had been involved with showing ESPN the facilities on Wellston’s campus. He never got to see the renovations, which were completed in just one month and were unveiled on Aug. 6. ESPN placed a memorial decal and plaque in the school’s gym as a tribute to Derrow. “I was not surprised, but amazed at the number of people that came out to the ‘reveal,’” said Superintendent Karen Boch. “I would say there were 1,500-2,000 people here.” Those who attended got to see the totally redesigned and renovated locker rooms, offices, film room, shower room and weight room. Other renovations included improvements to the stadium, an asphalted walkway around the stadium, new sod on the field and a sprinkler and drainage system. “The old locker rooms I think were the same for probably 20 to 30 years or longer; this is a total change,” said Wellston Athletic Director Jeff Hendershott. “It’s unbelievable what they’ve done. It’s just great for our student athletes to have a locker room as nice as it is now, they certainly deserve it.” Support rains down from the community The renovations didn’t cost the district a dime. ESPN solicited all of the funding and the community generously pitched in time and cash. “This whole project really is about more than renovating a field, it’s about the community coming together and helping each other,” Boch said “There are so many donors that we don’t even know, so to even say thank you to just a few is not fair.” ESPN videotaped every step along the way and offered

another memorable bonus to Wellston football players - a training session with Chris Spielman and former NFL and Buckeye star Eddie George. “It was definitely an awesome experience,” said Wellston High School defensive back Noah Massie. “I grew up an Ohio State fan and still am. Those two have been role models of mine for a really long time.” ESPN focused on educating the athletes on the importance of proper nutrition, rest and overall health. On Sept. 13, Wellston’s story aired as the first “RISE UP” episode of the new season. Just a few days earlier, the Wellston Golden Rockets hosted their first home game of the season on Sept. 9. It was an event the town will never forget. “It’s surreal to think that I will be playing on this new field, then watching my kids or whoever play on the same field that I did,” said wide receiver Dakota Brown. On this momentous occasion, the alumni band joined Wellston’s marching band to march through the city to the stadium. It’s an old tradition that had stopped when the high school relocated. But Crabtree, who plays alto in the alumni band, says the event presented the perfect opportunity to bring back a bit of old with the new. “Football Friday night is so special in Wellston,” Crabtree said. “And, with the stadium downtown, it brings the community together. They walk to the field, they have their

grandchildren, it’s totally a family event and there’s just a thrill in the air.” Reaping the seeds of labor on the new field of dreams on that special night, the woman who planted the first seed was publicly acknowledged for her efforts. Crabtree was awarded the Bob Walton Award by the Big W Football Boosters. Even though the Golden Rockets were defeated by the Gallia Blue Devils, they will stay on cloud nine for a while feeling like an angel has blessed them. Maybe one did. One board member, taking immediate action with one big idea, spurred the community into action and changed the history of a city. “It’s just been an awesome experience being a small community and being put on the map by a national program,” said tight end Brandon Shover. “This is definitely the biggest thing to hit this city that I can remember.” This article ran in the October 2011 editon of the Ohio School Boards Association Journal and was written by Crystal Davis Hutchins Editor of the OSBA Journal.

Mr. D. Kent Lewis, superintendent at Buckeye Hills Career Center, has announced the procedure for the closing of school due to inclement weather and other calamity. Announcements will be made on the following radio and television stations: WSAZ-TV - Channel 3 Huntington WOWK-TV - Channel 13 Huntington WNTO/WJEH (93.1 FM, 990 AM) Radio - Gallipolis WKOV-FM (96.7) Radio Jackson WYPC-AM (1330) Radio Jackson WCJO-FM (97.7) Radio Jackson WYRO - FM 98.7 Radio Jackson WYRV/WMGA - 101.5 Radio - Gallipolis.

If you need a morale boost, turn to your closest friends for the inspiring words you need to hear. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18: Certain things have to get done in the next few days, Aquarius.

It can be difficult to take charge, but you can handle the pressure.
