Doug Crabtree, Har. Co. Engineer’s Office


CADIZ – Harrison County Sheriff Joe Myers appeared before the county commissioners at Wednesday’s meeting seeking approval for an agreement that makes the Next Generation 911 in Harrison County one step closer to reality. Myers called their current recording equipment “obsolete” with the new Polycom phone on the market, and ready to be installed.

“That will come out of the 911 funds so we recommend that equipment be purchased,” Myers explained. Doug Crabtree from the county engineer’s office said this is going to allow them to expand their phone service with calls being re-routed “much better” and will also allow phone and radio traffic to be recorded. “This is a necessary upgrade,” Crabtree told the board. The system itself is called “Eventide,” which will be installed by Stephen Campbell Associates with a cost announced at, $13,569. Myers said the Next Generation 911 is expected to go up live on March 26. The commissioners did approve of the agreement. Myers further explained that after conferring with General Dynamics it was recommended that a T-1 line be installed and he said it’s in the works to

Grant money up for grabs in Scio By JD LONG

SCIO – It was decision time in Scio as Village Solicitor Jason Tubaugh laid out four scenarios that dealt with their waterline projects. First though, he informed council that the village is no longer eligible for the CDBG (Community Development Block Grant ) money, which is based on Low to Moderate Income (LMI) pertaining to a certain percentage of a community’s population (52 percent). “And the reason is the Low to Moderate Income summary data has changed…our LMI survey expires at the end of the year so it has to be redone for 2020,” Tubaugh explained. He told council that back in 2013

make that happen. “When they come in and put that new T-1 line it, it will give us 22 avenues to transfer calls in and out of the sheriff’s office to work with the Polycom phones,” he told the board. He added that they were told they do have a T-1 line in but “they don’t know what it goes to and neither do we.” He said he was told there is going to be a savings with the new T-1 line in working with the new Polycom phones, which he said would cost $440 per month by transferring data over to the new system. “We’re hoping to save money on the back side and from what they (Frontier Communications) talked to me…it should be $145 savings a month by going this way from what are stuff can be transferred over to that,” Myers said. “It allows us to increase service and save money,” Crabtree added.

Crabtree also relayed a request from County Engineer Doug Bachman for an advance of $403,942 for work FEMA has completed while “we are currently awaiting funds for.” “These projects were viewed and approved by FEMA and now are working the way through the process of funding and getting the monies down to the State FEMA and then to the County,” Crabtree said reading from a prepared statement. The money involves five projects with four being slip repairs: Harrison 2 ($47,655-BBR Drilling); Harrison 39 ($56.553-BBR Drilling); Harrison 24 ($133,854-Dennison Bridge) and Harrison 17 ($96,010-Alan Stone). The remaining project was for the Harrison 61 bridge wing wall repair for $69,890 and also done by BBR Drilling.

the village was over 52 percent but were in the low 40s when the state did the survey. “So, doing it yourself actually behooves the village, I know it’s a lot of work and effort…but since gas and oil has kind of pretty much died out as far as transient workers, the people that live here are the ones that need to be surveyed,” he explained. Regarding other grant possibilities in aiding their major waterline projects, a fairly lengthy discussion ensued with Tubaugh explaining four possibilities, or options the village could take. He said they are currently through round one and if they continue on course their loan share stands at $87,000 with a local share

Cadiz Council discusses future of Mannik Smith By JD LONG CADIZ – The village of Cadiz, who first retained Mannik Smith back in 2015 for an initial contract of $80,000 for various road projects, discussed what to do about the future with the engineering firm at last Thursday’s council meeting. Council member Terry Capers reported on their finance committee meeting and what was discussed was whether to retain the engineering firm, Mannik Smith Group (MSG) for the village of Cadiz. A retainer for “general

engineering services” was the exact topic Capers titled it. “And basically what this is, is it’s not a you use it or lose it kind of deal, you use it if you need it,” he explained. He added that if the village does not use the retainer they wouldn’t lose it. Treasurer Amy Ossman stated that they wouldn’t be paying MSG, which Village Administrator Ted Andrzejewski called a good question after it was asked if they would be reimbursed. “The builder would put in a deposit [and] we would use that deposit

New Athens swears in new member, moves to raise water tap-in fees By JD LONG

NEW ATHENS – Along with swearing in new council member Roger Digman, the New Athens village council proceeded through the first reading for raising their water tap-in fees. Those fees will see an increase to $1,500 for in-town residents and an increase to $2,000 for customers who live outside the village limit. These fees


NEWS-HERALD One section, 10 Pages Vol. 51, No. 44

are for a three-quarter inch line and any additional costs that rise above these fees will be the responsibility of the resident, such as a larger line or other materials for example. From what council gathered when searching through the old ordinance was that the current tap-in fee is $600 inside the village and $780 for anyone wanting to hook up that lived outside the village limit. But after the third reading that will be no more. Village Solicitor Travis Collins was

concerned over the wording and wanted the exact parameters of the line before writing the ordinance. What added to some of the confusion was a resident who is putting in a 2-inch line but it was agreed that that is a separate situation. Council member Mark Arnold said this resident would be responsible for any cost above installing a three-quarter inch line. They also talked of a 1-inch line but council member Matt Litman said he knew of no one who had anything but

a three-quarter inch line inside the village. When Collins asked who was buying the meter he was told the village would own the meter whether it’s in town or outside the village, according to Arnold. “The $2,000 says, ‘here’s your right to hook on,’ if he wants a 2-inch meter and that meter costs $4,000 yep, that’s what it costs, sorry, that’s his choice,” Arnold stated. Council opened the meeting discussing the crossover to radio

meters, which is already happening in several other communities throughout the county. Village Administrator Tosha Giesey reminded council that two representatives from the engineering firm, ADR & Associates were supposed to appear and talk about funding and other issues but they did not show. Village employee Matt Litman Jr. said it’s a matter of time before the current

to 15 but they weren’t sure of the exact number as of yet. Village Solicitor Jenna Hokes said she would expedite the process stating, “It’s a matter of getting people to respond.” She said the last group of letters were sent out last week and said she would begin phoning residents. She further explained that since the new pipelines were not being put back in the same exact spot as the old, is the reason for the new

easements. “And the old, old pipelines, no one ever recorded anything,” she told council, “so now this is all corrective work.” Also, Clerk of Water and Public Affairs Rhonda Harris told council that six residents have yet to pay back taxes. She said Hokes will be sending them letters informing them that the village could “garnish wages and bank

accounts” if payment is not received. Hokes, in regards to the house that had to be raided where animals were taken from the Carmans and housed in Jefferson County, said that probation would be revoked on Catherine Carman since she has not made any more payments and did not show up for a probation appointment.

Police Chief Ron Carter opened the meeting with his usual report informing council that his department is now Taser certified. He said last month was quiet regarding traffic issues but is already picking this month. “We have as many citations this month as we had almost at the end of last month already,” Carter stated.

department the village is working on replacing around 100 water meters throughout Cadiz, or reconnecting some as well, he wrote in his report. “These locations have been identified with having water and sewer bills for years at minimum usage and never changing,” Andrzejewski said. “We know that something is incorrect and the Village is not receiving the correct amounts for water and sewer usage from these locations.” He said they’re finding that meters are either old or wires have become disconnected as part of the problem. He said these actions are going to create “some significant additional money” to the water and sewer funds. “So, once we go through that whole list of a hundred there’s going to be a little spike up in the water and sewer money coming in too and rightfully so because, those residents should

be paying the same rates as people that have functioning water meters,” Andrzejewski explained. He also brought up a recent conference call he had with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which has led to the village needing to fill out one additional form in order to receive a $950,000 grant. The money will go towards their wastewater sewer projects. Early in the meeting, council member John Vermillion inquired about residents getting credit off their bills for breaks, or other problems but Andrzejewski told him what the village wants to do is help them but we’re not going to forgive their debts. Vermillion countered with an example of one resident who experienced a break and had his sewer charge forgiven but was later told the village would no longer be doing that. Andrzejewski stated that to his understanding that if

someone suffers a break or a leak “we don’t forgive the charges.” “If you do it for one you’re going to have hundreds come in…” he told council. Vermillion, though, asked if the village, since they had forgiven some debts in the past were discontinuing the practice because Andrzejewski was now the administrator. But numerous council members chimed in with comments and what came out of it was Council President Thomas Crawshaw’s example of forgiving a $6,000 bill with McDonald’s but knew of no others that came to mind. Vermillion and Treasurer Amy Ossman both said the McDonald’s situation was under different circumstances. Andrzejewski noted he has gotten together with water department personnel and asked how things have been done and how they would like it now and was told they don’t

forgive breaks or leaks. “And I’m not trying to be hard,” Andrzejewski told them. “Whatever council wants me to do I’ll do but we thought it was the logical thing to do is you need to pay your bill. We feel bad for you so we’ll split it up into payments but we can’t forgive it.” He said people that have come in they have worked with them on their bills and repeated again that they are trying to work with residents, “especially since this was the first few months that they got the higher bills.” Also, Andrzejewski informed council that a letter had been sent to the owner of the Cadiz Laundromat located at 161 West Market Street. He said it was in “horrible” condition and wrote in his report that nearby property owners have been complaining that, “large pieces of the roof are now coming off.” “So maybe we can get that guy off first base,” Andrzejewski said.

Adena police now eligible for needed upgrades By JD LONG

ADENA – Even though the Adena Police Department (APD) didn’t need anyone to tell them they are a small department, the acknowledgment from the Ohio Small Police Department Association (OSPDA) has

brought the APD into them as part of that group and is now eligible for some good things as the result of this connection. Adena Police Chief Paul Carpenter made the announcement at Tuesday’s Adena monthly meeting where he’s also the representative for small towns such as Barnesville and Dillonvale, just to name two others he said that have joined. “It’s to get grants,” he told council as well as for sharing such as training with different departments. “They’ll come here instead of paying OPOTA (Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy) and going up there for seven, eight days and we’re going to share that,” Carpenter explained. He said the dues is $150 per year, which he said Treasurer Bobbie Gaffney already has given him a check for. “It’s a great thing”, he continued, “it’s taken off so we should get some benefits out of that.” He said obtaining cruisers was one benefit that would come out of being affiliated with OSPDA. Some other benefits listed were immediate access to over 230 hours of public safety courses, create your own training, top national instructors and around the clock access to technical support, just

to name a few. Carpenter also addressed Internet in their police cruiser. He explained that he can scan then print out what he needs when pulling people over for violations. He said he was testing, via AT&T with Smithfield and the area “to keep it going.” Also, the new bridge next to the square may soon be getting a new name with it as well. Gaffney said after speaking with some local people that Dale Stock, the Vietnam veteran who was killed in action in 1969, is a name that was preferred. “Dale was the first Vietnam veteran killed over there,” Gaffney said referring to Adena residents. But then she asked how many from the area were killed in other wars but no one knew of any killed who were from Adena. Others she spoke with asked why couldn’t it be named Veteran’s Bridge or Adena Veteran’s Bridge? “This village has a lot of veterans,” Gaffney said in reference to others and who also may have died from later complications related to war. One lifelong resident said the only veteran killed during war that she knows of was Stock. “I just don’t want anybody to get hurt…” Gaffney told council. “I mean that’s up to

you. I don’t have to take the flack you guys do.” Nothing was decided before the meeting ended. Another issue tackled dealt with trucks in town as Village Solicitor Adam Martello told council, “it has to come from you guys,” referring to a directive that needs to come from council for Martello to draw up a Road Use Maintenance Agreement (RUMA). Martello laid out the specifics of exactly where and on what road the RUMA would apply and hours a company is allowed to use it, as well. When Martello was told some trucks even pass in front of the municipal building on their brick roads he said those bricks would not be replaced. “If you want to keep the brick roads then it might be worth considering not letting them travel on it because they’re not going to replace a brick road with more bricks, it’s not going to happen,” Martello told council. “You might be able to get them to tear it up and pave it but they’re not going to replace it with more bricks.” Martello said to let him know what they want and he would make sure those provisions are in the agreement.


was “very interested in seeing what the county could do for New Athens.” Bethel could not comment on anything particular when contacted this week but did confirm that the commissioners would “support New Athens’ efforts to make

their Village better, including financial support.” Also, in last month’s meeting it was revealed that the village had signed an agreement with Ascent Resources for $5,500 with 20 percent royalties for five years.

Commissioners work with Hopedale on animal clinic By JD LONG

HOPEDALE – Harrison County Commissioner Paul Coffland appeared before Hopedale’s council at Wednesday’s monthly meeting to hash out some details and offer what help the county could for Dr. Scott Pendleton’s new animal clinic facility, which is due to be completed near the U.S. 22 exit in Hopedale later this year. Council member Ron Hawkins and the rest of council agreed that the new facility wasn’t going to benefit only Hopedale but all of Harrison County as well, which Coffland agreed. “I mean it’s more for you guys than us,” Coffland said. One issue to iron out was the fact that to place a line underneath the overpass would have to be bored, which is what the state

has required. And for the county to submit those plans they needed Hopedale’s approval, which they received. Village Solicitor Jack Felgenhauer was informed of drawing up the ordinance, which gives permission to the county to bore under the highway near the overpass, which would tie into the sewer system. Mayor Mike Pelegreen said the line would extend down to the post office and hook in there. “When they get to the highway the state has specifications that you have to put it in a certain way, and it has to be bored and we have to give the county authorization…” Pelegreen explained. It was further explained that since that part of the highway needed bored under and is inside the village of Hopedale, was the reason for the village’s approval. Pelegreen added that the state

would not allow open trench digging underneath an overpass, which is the reason for the boring. Hawkins’ motion to approve of the boring was accepted. Also, Hawkins informed council of having to purchase an additional 25 tons of salt “to get us through.” He said the county was not able to sell them any more, which led to a higher cost because they had to go to Belmont Mills for the additional salt and not the county. Mayor Pelegreen commended Street Superintendent Rick Atkins on the job he did over the winter plowing streets. He said he’d received compliments from people around the community regarding the job Atkins did. Clean up day for Hopedale was announced as May 11 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the firehouse. Council member Don Jochims said CCH

Cadiz Business Association buttons up plans for recognition banquet CADIZ - The Cadiz Business Association membership meeting and  finalization of plans for the  Recognition Banquet to be held March 16 was held at The Mine Restaurant on Wednesday. Susan DeMalio presided and final plans were discussed for the dinner. Dale Davis  will serve as emcee, it was noted, and all those to be honored have been selected and  presenters have been named.  Jackie Hutyera, vice president, went over details for the dinner, including the caterer, table linens,

flowers, table decorations, lighted awards, greeters, registration. public address system, table  set up and clean up committee. Scott Porter has been contacted to help set up tables and the stage. All systems were on board but concern was expressed over reservations. As of March 13, there were only 89  but the deadline was extended by e-mail to help with those who had  neglected to order tickets on time.. Jackie Hutyera reported that most families were notified about the memoriam service for deceased

village residents. She will present the honored program as she has done for years. Ted Andrzejewski, village administrator, was present at the meeting and discussed the enormous parking problem in the village. As a suggestion, he said that there should be three 15 minute parking spaces and one handicapped space in the center of town and all night parking by permit only. "Come and see me and we will try to help the business community," he said. At the mention of a parking ban from

2-6 a.m. during winter weather for snow removal, he was told that this was not in effect in Cadiz and he planned to look into this.   Nancy Davis, treasurer,   reported that the bills were all paid to date.   In old business, a band show that was discussed at the February meeting, was brought up again but  needs more work to become a reality.  Susan DeMalio said the concept is that local bands could perform their half time shows and this would bring  people into Cadiz.


engineer’s office where they will be reimbursed later on, which he later said would stretch beyond the $403,000-plus dollars. Crabtree repeated that the projects have already been completed and said they were requesting a “loan” after Commissioner Don Bethel asked the question. Crabtree explained that the advance in

monies allows the contractors to be paid and cover other costs that the county has had to pay. Crabtree said the money would be repaid as soon as FEMA comes through with the funds, which he said is expected “within the next few months.” He said that was the best case scenario with the worst being the money

wouldn’t come through until the end of the year. The commissioners approved the request. Also, Crabtree read off a slew of bids from several companies as he does at this time each year. The bids were for materials such as different types of limestone, aggregate, hot mix and fuel. Those items were all tabled for review.

“So, basically what I’m telling you is wait till 2020 to possibly getting a free waterline project paid and everything is realistic, if you don’t you’re in for a hundred and thirty-some thousand of the village taxpayer dollars…that’s what it boils down to,” Tubaugh stated. He then explained that it would take council’s unanimous vote in favor of revising their capital improvement plan [but] “if there’s one ‘no’ and that you’ll have to revisit next meeting.” He called waiting an “easy sell” because they would only be putting the project off for approximately nine months, as opposed to other scenarios and costs involved. Tubaugh said the four options were presented by Quixsall and

Associates, an engineering and consulting firm they have been working with. He ran down those options with the first being that the village pay for it themselves, which “got shot right out of the sky.” The second was to go with OPWC, which is the 87/45 loan and grant money with the village fronting $45,000 in cash. The third option, which he called it a variance of going with 31 percent of village expense (up from 26 percent) gaining the village two additional points towards a grant, but also raises their costs from $45,000 to $67,000. He repeated the fourth option as the best, which combines OPWC with ARC grant money as the possibility of having it all

paid for. Tubaugh felt they had a “pretty good shot” at obtaining the ARC grant because of the LMI statistics, which he said gets thrown out for next year. This led to Council Member, Andrew Turner asking if this might interfere with their chances of an OPWC grant next year. Tubaugh said it does not because they are already granted the OPWC money. “Basically, the ARC is going to front load us our cash and loan amounts,” Tubaugh said, which led to two motions for seeking ARC funding as well as amending their capital improvement plan Phase 2, projected date of 2020, which were both approved.

are billed for MSG services would come out of that $20,000 fund. Ossman clarified further this week when she said MSG works mostly with the paving projects in the village with E.L. Robinson for instance, working with the wastewater projects. When Capers made a motion for Village Solicitor just to write up an ordinance to retain MSG, Vermillion interrupted and asked if the village had done any shopping around Ossman told him “that’s just their proposal when the ordinance comes you can vote against it.” “I’m not trying to waste two months here I’m asking the question have we shopped there or not because I mean, if you want my personal opinion we spent a lot of money at Mannik Smith last year, a lot of money…” Vermillion stated. That total, according to Ossman came to $91,298 covering five different purchase orders including the E. Market

Street paving done last year. Andrzejewski named three firms, Hull, E.L. Robinson and MSG that the village is also doing business with. “That’s just general engineering services,” he said adding that on bigger projects they would send bids out. Crawshaw said the village could look for another engineering firm aside from MSG if they wanted but Andrzejewski explained further by referring to a meeting they had with MSG (last month) lasting nearly two hours and said the concerns of Ossman and the mayor were satisfied. “And I have dealt personally with bigger engineering firms and they came across as knowing what they’re doing,”Andrzejewski told council. But he said if council wanted him to search for more engineering firms he would do that but for the size of the village, he described the three firms they’re dealing with now as “sufficient.” He also said MSG’s pricing is

similar to most other engineering firms he’s dealt with but called council’s questions good ones. When they told him of an 8 percent price on engineering projects Andrzejewski said he knew that was what most firms charge and not higher, which told him they were not overcharging the village. But again he reminded council he would seek out other firms for quotes if that’s what they wished him to do. Two motions were then passed, one for Village Solicitor Costa D. Mastros to draw up an ordinance for voting on the $20,000 proposal from MSG, and the other to shop for other engineering firms. Also discussed was the new front door with a drop box attached for the municipal building. Capers said the bid was just over $2,800 and a motion was approved for that work.

From PG | 1 “This money covers only the cost of the contractors and does not include any funds that will be part of our force account reimbursement,” Crabtree stated, which meant this advance was not for the


From PG | 1 of $45,000. He felt the best scenario was to resubmit for an ARC (Appalachian Regional Commission) grant and their cost share would be zero if combined with (Ohio Public Works Commission)OPWC. “If we get it, if we don’t get it, we’re still in for the 87 to 45,” Tubaugh said. “But if you do get it your share is nothing.” He said the village’s EPA plans have already been approved and are good for five years. He added that he would like to see Phase 2 of the project completed this year but left it up to council on which direction of the four scenarios they would prefer.


eventually to pay back into the retainer. So we’d pay the engineering firm to review the plans pay them, and then the contractor’s deposit we would use for the fee,” Andrzejewski explained. When council member Chace Smith asked if there was an annual fee paid to MSG, Council President Thomas Crawshaw stated that there is a cap “at $20,000” and pay them only when they are used for services. “We have a $20,000 bank account with Mannik Smith right now,” Council member John Vermillion said, referring to a proposal MSG made to the village for the $20,000 fee for general engineering services. It was made clear that the village was not writing a check to MSG for $20,000 but that whatever they

I saw an article on how combat what ails you with old fashioned cures. Here is one that might be a bit messy but if I were aching bad enough, I would try it. For aches from the flu, mix a tablespoon horseradish in 1 cup olive oil and let sit for 30 minutes. Then apply as a massage oil. Another was mixing 1/4 cup vinegar and 1/4 cup honey and taking a tablespoonful six times a day for a sore throat. The vinegar kills the bacteria.  Something else that might make the flu aches go away for a time is a big hug, keeping your face turned from the stricken patient, of course. It is fatfree, sugar free and requires no batteries. It also relieves pains and depression. So here is a big hug from me to you.  Hope you survived turning the clock up one hour at 2 p.m. on March 10. Did you know that it is called Daylight Saving Time, not savings like I had been saying for years? A newscaster pointed this out the day before it was to begin.

A balloon gondola lands in Harrison County

October 23, 1934 Jean and Jeanette Piccard a pioneering stratosphere exploring couple, their balloon and gondola brought worldwide publicity when it landed on a wooded site on the John Fulton farm four miles south-west of Cadiz off route 22. The Piccards lifted off from an airport in Dearborn, Mich., on a flight to gather scientific data to be recorded by various instruments in the gondola. As the balloon swept in over Cadiz the Piccards made voice contact with Glen Cope, who grabbed the trailing drag rope and attached it

to a tractor. The balloon had been sighted by many and soon a crowd gathered at the site. The Piccards were taken to the Custer Hotel in Cadiz and the gondola was trucked to Longs Garage where it was guarded by the sheriff's deputies all night. The next day, in a generous gesture, the Piccards spoke and answered questions for an hour at an assembly for the 840 students in the Cadiz Schools. In the picture, the Piccards posed for photographers before their home in the sky was taken to the truck for the journey back to Dearborn. Info from "A Look at the Past" News-Herald, Oct 21, 1976.

HC Cheerleaders place second in state competition By ED BANKS

NH Sports Writer

COLUMBUS - On Sunday, March 10, the Harrison Central High School Competition Squad competed at St. John Arena in Columbus, Ohio, during the 2019 State Cheering Competition. It would be a very successful outing for the squad as their award for their efforts was the Division IV State Runner-Up. The placement in the competition would be the first time in school history. Making the second place finish was made even more sweeter as the Division IV competition was 18 teams deep. Sunday’s competition was their eighth and final competition of the season. “To be eligible for the state competition each team must qualify at a regional event,” said Huskies coach Sunnie Ruble. “At the regional level each squad performs their routine, and if the judges don’t agree with the thought of you moving into state competition, then you simply don’t go. There are no scores, only critiques and a letter grade. If your letter grade isn’t high enough then regionals can quickly turn into the end of the road for some. The Huskies

have qualified to move into the state competition every year since 2010. Anytime we travel to Columbus we always shoot for top 5. When you’re against 15-plus teams you just never know what you’re going to get. We go into it knowing we are against teams with twice as many athletes, skill, and experience. Last year we placed seventh in the state, and this year we knew we wanted more. We had a really great week going into the competition. We practiced every day of the week except for days we cheered on our boys basketball team. Our performance was really strong Sunday morning, but with seven girls going up against teams that have 15 as a coach it’s hard to envision yourself that high on the podium,” Ruble added. The Huskies were brought home on fire trucks, where friends and family gathered in the square to welcome them back. “It still feels like a dream, and I’d have to say this is definitely my favorite ‘first time in Harrison Central history moment’. I’ve worked with a lot of teams in the past, and I’ve never worked with one that had this much drive. I’m thankful everyday that’s a quality we have here at HC. Some things you can’t coach, and work ethic

is a big one,” Ruble added. The Huskies competed eight times during the 2018-2019 school year, bringing home

three first place trophies, three runners-up (one of which was the 4A OVAC title) and one fifth place finish at The Ohio

State University in January. Members of the squad that competed on Sunday were Sara Bethel, Kenna Mizer,

HC bowlers dominate in All-TL Bowling; Parkinson earns Coach of the Year honors By ED BANKS

NH Sports Writer

CADIZ - No less than four Harrison Central bowlers were honored recently during the installment of the 2019 All Times Leader Bowling Team. The Huskies were on target with their performance from the time the season opened,

and continued with a storyworthy season through the 22 - 1 regular season record for the boys team. While not giving any ground, the boys bowled their way to Harrison Central’s first state appearance. In addition to the team honors, Bobbi Parkinson, head bowling coach at Harrison, received ‘Coach of the Year’ honors as the guiding force

behind the team’s achievement. Parkinson was assisted by her daughter, Katie Norris. Norris has been by her mother’s side since the conception of the bowling program at Harrison Central. Parkinson was quoted in saying, “First of all I could not have received this honor without my assistant coach, Katie Norris or my kids. I am

very humbled by this recognition. This (coaching) is something I like to do”, she added. Team members from Harrison listed as members of the All-T L Bowling Team are (boys team) Trevor Thompson, Jacob Hudson, Zach Keyser and (girls team) Riley Eberhart. Thompson, a sophomore, earned second

Team All-Ohio with his State finish of ninth place with a 679. He was a District Champion where he bowled a 698. Hudson, rolled a 638 in the state bid and also served as team captain for the Huskies. He was fourth in Columbus with a 660. Keyser, was a first-year bowler for Parkinson and the Huskies. He finished fourth in the

sectionals with a 620 to help the Huskies claim the title. He bowled along with four other Huskies to score the ‘300’ baker contest during the season. On the girls side of the game, Eberhart was the District representative with a 572 coming out of Sectional play. She was the Buckeye 8 runnerup with a 492.

Husky fifth, sixth grade basketball are champions By ED BANKS

NH Sports Writer

BRILLANT - Being good at something adds pride to your work, and keeps you coming back for more satisfaction. The Harrison Central’s fifth and sixth grade boys basketball team recently entered and won a basketball tournament at the old Buckeye Local High School gymnasium. Hungering for the thrill of another victory, the team was once again back on State Route 7 to take place in what was this time, a Youth Shootout in Rayland. Following Friday’s pairings, the

final two days of the tournament would feature some talented teams, and was scheduled to last over both Saturday and Sunday. On Friday, the Huskies defeated Bellaire 28 - 15 and Buckeye Local 31 - 6. The wins placed the team in the second seed for the opening day’s play. On Sunday, the Harrison County based Huskies drew a rematch with Bellaire, this time defeating them in a close game 18 -16 final. They then moved into the championship game against the number 1 seed Brooke Bruins. However, like a moth to a flame, the Bruins fell

by a 23 - 10 final count, giving the Huskies the championship. As always, success comes with a price, and the players, coaches and parents of the Huskies would like to thank the Jewett Wildcat Community Center and Jewett Mayor Dwight Busby for sponsoring the Huskies in the tournament. “In addition to thanking Mayor Busby, we the parents and the players would also like to thank our coaches and Allison Anderson for their dedication with the boys this season, while setting the stage for the future of Harrison Central Basketball.

NH Sports Writer

JEWETT - As the final week or regular season winds down, the Biddy Basketball League at the Jewett Wildcat Community Center will end regular play this week, as well as enter tournament play. But first, here are last week’s regular season play results. On Thursday night the Wildcats had 34 rebounds to defeat the Royals. On Saturday another good rebounding performance gave the Wildcats back to back

wins. Also, on Friday, the Lakers rebounded from a loss to collect a win, while repeated with both offense and defense to emerge as winners. Friday the Tar Heels found themselves on the losing end for the first time, and carried the same fate into Saturday’s game against the Lakers. The Bandits showed improvement in both of their contests on Friday and Saturday. The Royals jumped back in the win column on Thursday night and failed to improve for Saturday’s game. For the Warriors, Friday brought a win,

but slipped on Saturday. Raiders defeated the Warriors on Friday, but lost on Saturday. While the Busby’s drew a bye, the Spartans, Knights and the Vikings were silent with their results. The Players of the Week were Anthony Pelegreen and Lyla Dalton. Pelegreen scored 22 points in Saturday’s win. Dalton had 12 points and was a standout on defense. Honorable mention for the week went to Ocean Rogers and Austin Dulkoski. Rodgers scored 6 points and Dulkoski had 5 points and 20 rebounds.

Board of Education considers auction for old school buildings By JD LONG

CADIZ – With several buildings soon to be vacated by the move to the new Harrison Central school building this August, the Harrison Hills Board of Education (HHBOE) were being educated on some auction protocols by Billy Birney and Joe Gliatta of KIKO Auctions. Treasurer Roxane Harding stated that KIKO was not there to sell themselves as much as they were known to the school board therefore invited to explain certain choices, such as

an online auction versus an onsite auction. Some of the options Birney informed them about was, for example, having the auction on screen at one site and viewing multiple locations as opposed to moving the auctioneers to each site. Harding said they could also choose to have a combination of an online and on-site auction. Harding stated this week that according to Ohio Revised Code (ORC) that the school board has the choice of placing the Scio, Hopedale and Cadiz buildings up for auction or offering them for sale to a

political subdivision. Both the villages of Scio and Hopedale have expressed interest in one part of their buildings but no decision has been made by the school board on which direction they will go. “It’s getting close to crunch time,” Harding said explaining that the board would like to have the decision and everything in place by June or July at the latest. She said once the bids are in and approved it would probably take an auction company approximately five to six weeks to prepare for the sale.

Joyce Barr named to Dean’s List at Capital University for fall 2018 The new Harrison Hills school is coming along and scheduled to open for the 2019-2020 school year but that leaves at least three buildings the HHBOE needs to decide on. Last Thursday they heard from KIKO Auctions regarding what they need to do and expect if they put their Scio, Hopedale and Cadiz buildings up for auction.

BEXLEY, OHIO — Joyce Barr, of Cadiz, OH was named to the Dean’s List at Capital University for the fall 2018 semester. In order to be named to the Dean’s List, full-time, degreeseeking students must have achieved a grade point average of at least 3.5. Located in the Columbus,

The Preschool PTO of HC Board of Developmental Disabilities "Pays It Forward"

Students ‘sign in’ at the new school gymnasium Director of Operations Brent Ripley had all the kids sign the gym floor at the new school site before the wood is laid down. School busses full of students were ushered back and forth last Friday as they went at it for most of the morning. Some carpet has already set in some of the rooms and logos have already made their presence inside the gym as well.

Raise The Roof supports school pavilion project BERGHOLZ-John Gregg Elementary is nearing the halfway mark in its fundraising effort to build a new pavilion on the grounds for students. School Principal Tammy Burchfield said the “Raise the Roof for John Gregg Elementary” benefit hosted by Richmond United Methodist Church on March 2 garnered about $6,000 towards the project. Musical acts from the church praise team to John Gregg students and local bluegrass band Awesome Possum provided tunes for the night. Burchfield added that donations were still coming in from individuals to organizations such as the Amsterdam Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 232 Auxiliary and plans are to erect an estimated 1,100-square-foot pavilion behind the school to hold about 50-70 students. It would be used as a multi-purpose site for pupils to either lunch outside or

conduct an outdoor classroom. She was seeking cost estimates and hoped to have the structure built either this spring or next fall depending on available funds. “It will be approximately $14,000 for the structure and another $2,000 for picnic tables, or a total of $16,000,” she said. “We’re still in need of $10,000 and will be applying for a [Charles M. and Thelma M.] Pugliese Foundation grant.” The pavilion is just one part of the upgrades eyed for the site as the school also undertakes a new playground project. Fundraisers have helped finance about $5,300 worth of equipment to help the school’s 400 pupils get active. However, there are still issues with wet ground conditions that officials are looking to rectify. Burchfield said students have held recess in other areas of the campus because muddy conditions have made it difficult for them to

access the rear of the grounds. Nothing was set at the current time, but possible ideas include adding rubber mulch or some other material to absorb the moisture and make the surface more pliable. “The rain and snow takes weeks to dry up and we’re in the process of getting a new playground,” Burchfield noted. “My hope is to get an area that’s sufficient enough for them to go and I think it’s important to get them outside.” Still, she is optimistic about getting the pavilion plan completed for the children. Donations are being accepted for that project and checks may be written to the Edison Local School District, in care of the Raise the Roof Project, and sent to John Gregg Elementary at 212 County Road 75 A, Bergholz, Ohio, 43908. For more information, contact the school at (740) 768-2100.

Hope Players to hold meeting regarding future venue The Hope Players will hold an open meeting on Tuesday, March 26, at 7 p.m., at Hopedale United Methodist Church, located at 237 Church Street in Hopedale, according to executive Players' president Donna Runt of Hopedale, who noted that the meeting Is open, not only to Hope Players members, but also to interested members of the community. Hope Players executive director Andrew Pelegreen III, also of Hopedale, explained that the impending closing of Harrison East Elementary School, which has been the home for most Players productions since the group's inception, has necessitated a

serious discussion about the Hope Players' future. "We're looking for input from members and the general public about a possible new venue, as well as the future direction of the Hope Players," Pelegreen said. "We're also looking for new participants with new ideas, who are willing to invest their time and talent, on stage and behind the scenes, in the future of community theater in the Hopedale area," he added,. Pelegreen also noted that "Items that the Hope Players have accumulated and stored at the school will have to be relocated a storage space if one is donated or found, or possibly donated to other local area

groups that could use them." "Without a new home and renewed participation from area talent, the future of the Hope Players is uncertain," Pelegreen concluded. Anyone with questions about the meeting should contact Pelegreen at 740-937-2629 or Hope Players' president Donna Runt at 740-937-2208 for further information. Anyone who cannot attend the meeting, but who wish to offer their support in the form of a new location, future participation in Hope Players productions or general suggestions about the future of the organization, should contact Runt or Pelegreen prior to the meeting.
