Engineer’s office forced to make financial changes By JD LONG CADIZ – Harrison County’s Doug Bachman, the new engineer who spoke briefly at the annual county officials and township trustees banquet, at least until the end of the meeting, made his news and announcements with one unpleasant change that stood out. “Historically, the county has not charged the townships for labor and equipment for work the county does for townships but at our current financial situation we cannot…afford to do that,” Bachman explained. “With the new revenue from

the gas tax hopefully that will be a one or two year solution to our financial situation, but moving forward we will be charging townships for labor and equipment for work we do for townships.” Bachman acknowledged the burden this puts on the townships and reminded everyone it was not an easy decision but it was one that was necessary for the “financial solvency” of the engineer’s office. Bachman, who took over for the recently retired Rob Sterling opened up his segment by thanking everyone for giving him the opportunity to serve the county. Bachman said he hoped no one would

regret giving him this chance and spoke a little of his background and being from Tuscarawas County. He went on to explain how the engineer’s office got into their financial hole by stating that Harrison and Coshocton Counties were the only two that went ahead and fixed the damages caused by last year’s severe weather before FEMA reimbursements, whereas others waited for FEMA approval. He said there was around $400,000 damage and thanked the commissioners for coming through with aid where he hoped to have them paid back by the end of the year, if FEMA does not come through with their

reimbursement payment. He said some work had been cut down to projects that did not require them to purchase material such as, “earthwork and tree trimming,” for example and continued by revealing more financial bad news. “This afternoon I was informed that we owed the commissioners an additional $358,000 from loans from 2014 and 2016,” Bachman explained. He said part of it went to the engineering costs for bridge work on Harrison 51. Bachman went on to say that, though their budget is $3.2 million, $2.3 million is eaten up by payroll.

“So we have essentially $900,000 to operate with as far as getting materials, snow and ice control,” he explained. This information he provided led to his announcement of charging the townships. When he opened up the floor for questions surprisingly, there were none. Bachman said that due to the current financial situation they would be concentrating on more earthwork and “other work that does not require us to purchase materials, for the time being.” Sen. Frank Hoagland (R-District-30) spoke with opening comments dealing


Jewett hiring two more police officers By JD LONG

JEWETT – With the onset of summer and current officers stretched thin regarding hours available Jewett Police Chief Ron Carter announced at Wednesday’s council meeting that he found two police officers to join the village force. He said Bob Moore from the Belmont County Sheriff’s Office was one, an officer with 25 years experience and another at the police academy, once pending graduation and passing the state’s testing. Also, Carter reminded council that if they see a village cruiser out away from town the reason is they are required by law to transport prisoners to the nearest local jail. “We transport juveniles to Sargus, that’s in Belmont County, you might see us out there,” he told council. “Could be in New Philly, that’s where we get our Life on the Owltown Farm on County Road 54 near Irondale was observed by the kindergarten class of John Gregg Elementary recently.

IRONDALE - A road closing on county Road 54 did not keep the three groups of kindergarten pupils from arriving by bus to the Curt and Virginia Glenn farm on a nice sunny day last week. This is the third year that the youngest group of children, the kindergarten, come with great amounts of energy and excitement. They get to take a well-supervised wagon ride through the fields and occasionally might see a small wild animal looking on with interest. Virginia works the day prior to the farming event to set up stuffed animals

for the children to note on a scavenger hunt. There is a green dragon, not really a farm animal but something that catches the interest the children; an owl in a tree; singing bird in a cage; gray eggs on a big twig nest, a tiny tea party set up in the yard; and an actual baby cardinal in a nest that his mother has hidden back in the bushes. The little ball of fluff is almost smaller than the yellow bill that stretches wide awaiting his lunch. The children mark an X beside each item they spy and it is a contest to see who gets them all right Something catching the eye of each child was the seven-day colt with its mother in the outdoor  enclosure. The mother stands guard as children pet the soft nose or stroke the mane.

uniforms from, could be in Cadiz, that’s where we get maintenance done at, we could be in Wintersville, that’s where we get our tires at.” He said another reason could be for training purposes at another facility but he said his officers would not be outside of Jewett unless assisting another officer on official business. “We have a mutual aid agreement throughout the whole county,” Carter told council regarding the possible assistance to the state patrol or sheriff’s office, for example. “If I find out one of my officers is not leaving the village to assist another officer and they’re calling for help, that officer would be immediately terminated,” Carter explained. “Under no circumstances will I tolerate an officer not backing up another officer when it’s called in…”


When it is time to leave, the children are presented bags of farming information, such as the "Adventures of Sammy Soil," telling about soil erosion and how Sammy and his friends are being carried away by a big gully. The owner changes  to become a conservation farmer and no more will they have to worry about being carried down a fast moving stream. Now there is a grassed waterway and trees planted on the steep hill. The book is from the US Dept. of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service. A box of crayons is included with the other material. Then it is time to board the bus and go to the park for a picnic lunch and then off to school to talk about all they have learned.

HOPEDALE – During Wednesday’s council meeting while addressing the Property Committee’s report, council member Lynnette Regalia informed council there were a total of nine properties that Village Solicitor Jack Felgenhauer was requested to send letters for cleaning up their property. An entire file full of pictures of the properties depicted very high grass, tires, litter and other properties with overgrown weeds cluttering up properties. A motion was made and approved for the letters to be sent to owners giving them a short time frame to remedy the situation. Another thing the village of Hopedale prides itself on is showing

off a fresh coat of paint and the cleaning up of the town. Mayor Mike Pelegreen announced the flushing out of one fire hydrant and the painting of 58 in total. Also, 120 guardrail posts were painted as well as curbs on bridge abutments done. Pelegreen said painting was just about wrapped up at the park with finishing touches to come the next day. He said all the work was done by using community assistance workers. Also, The village’s recent clean up day was announced as a success with Mayor Mike Pelegreen informed council that 77 loads were taken in, which included 55 village and township residents. He said 75 tires plus two tons of metal were received.


Four county entities awarded Community Development Block funds By JD LONG CADIZ – The Harrison County Planning Commission (HCPC) held a meeting Tuesday inside the commissioner’s office but before the official meeting took place the HCPC awarded four communities: German Township, Deersville Players (theatre),



Harrisville Volunteer Fire Department and Washington Township VFD as Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) recipients. Bowerston Mayor Milo Baker was present to fight for his community but they were not awarded funds and deemed an alternate. When the decision was up for vote, Baker was the lone dissenting vote after expressing his displeasure over certain

Office Administrator of the Harrison County Community Improvement Corporation (HCCIC), Jody Hennis gave the rundown in amounts each entity was requesting starting with German Township at $27,000. Hennis said they were requesting the funds to replace a culvert on Mill Road. German Township trustee Frank Kellar represented and

confirmed the amount. He said the culvert they wished to replace is 60 years old and called it a “main drainage culvert.” “It’s creating some sinkholes because of the deterioration of the culvert,” Kellar explained. “It’s 30 inches in diameter and it’s critical to the drainage and water control for the residents in German Township.” Marsha Dodds was present for Deersville

and they were requesting $35,000 for improvements to the theatre including stairs, porch and floor work. Also, Dustin Kinsey, president of the Harrisville Volunteer Fire Department Council, put in a $32,000 request for the restoration of their west wall. Lastly, Washington Township VFD, represented

Sunkissed Hair and Day Spa moves to new location By BONNIE HIGGINS NH Contributor

CADIZ — This month, Sunkissed Hair and Day Spa relocated from Cadiz’s Main Street to 339 Grant Street. The building many know as the old Sears building is now a welcoming beauty hub. Located just past the old post office, owner Linda Little gave the space a nice facelift with new floors and a fresh coat of paint. A new sign is coming soon and there is now ample parking for all patrons. Little noted that business has resumed as normal. The theme: cheery and homey. She wants women to feel the pleasant atmosphere as soon as they walk inside. The main area is an open space with everything beauty— shampoo bowls, hair stations, and lots of smiles. Tanning season is in full swing, keeping both tanning rooms busy. The nail room is complete with two pedicure chairs and a nail station, and the salon also offers

New Athens faces water tank deadline By JD LONG

The new location of Sunkissed Hair and Day Spa is at 339 Grant St., in the former Sears building. Owner Linda Little said the move was done mainly to accommodate their customers with more ample parking.

waxing, facials and eyelash extensions. Little said that she liked the space as soon as she saw it for the first time and quickly began envisioning where things would go. Now, just two weeks in, the salon has seamlessly nestled into its new location down the road. When asked why they moved,

Little said the smaller space and better parking accommodations were what attracted her. “It was a good move for us. I’m very happy. It is perfect for our size.” You can find Sunkissed Hair and Day Spa on Facebook to keep up with their special offers and services.

NEW ATHENS – The water tank in New Athens that already has an overflow pipe will have to have it re-done, as the EPA does not think it is long enough. Mayor Joe Petro said the EPA has already cited the village on their setup at the tank. Apparently, the EPA has said the overflow pipe must be within a foot of the ground and New Athens’ pipe is currently sits at 32 feet high. “If we don’t have that done by the first of June it’s $25,000 a day,” Petro said referring to what the EPA would fine the village. He told council they’ll get it done. He described the current condition of the tank as a pipe protruding high up on the tank with an elbow attached, and said it was no longer allowed to be done that way. “It’s not a major project but if it’s not done it’s $25,000 a day, which is ridiculous,” Petro said. “That’s a threat.” Petro continued to explain that he was informed it had to be changed back in December and

alluded to the fact that the EPA wasn’t necessarily playing nice on this one. “You know, what are you going to do? You have to comply so, we’re complying you know, it will be done this week,” Petro stated. He said a concrete pad will be put down as well. “They don’t want it dropping down 32 feet on its own,” council member Matt Litman said, which Petro acknowledged. He added that the EPA just doesn’t want to be told the job is done but to send photographs as well. Also, Mayor Petro announced that an expensive piece of equipment, a blower for the sewer plant was needed and the estimate was stated as $4,700. “There’s not much choice in the matter,” Petro answered. He said the company was located in an area with an area code of 610, which covers parts of eastern Pennsylvania. Petro said that it had to be done but there was money from sewage to pay for the matter. “We have the money in the sewage to take care of that,” he told council, “there’s money to do

that.” Also, when the subject of sidewalk maintenance was raised and who was responsible, Petro stated that they were attempting to obtain a grant and was informed that, “typically the owner is responsible for the sidewalk.” He repeated it then stated that was his experience anywhere he’s been of the private owner being responsible for the sidewalk in front of their property. Cadiz council has stated as much in past meetings as well when the issue was raised. Council member Matt Litman said he’s seen it done in bigger towns where the individual had not repaired the sidewalks. Petro agreed and cited a few other larger towns where it was done for its citizens. Village Solicitor Travis Collins stated the exception was that if the town did the damage they would fix it. Petro said he was familiar with towns that do repair the curbs “but the sidewalk is yours.” In another item briefly discussed, hydrant flushing would commence on May 28.

250 gas station finally comes down By JD LONG


On Monday night at the Days Inn in Cadiz, Betty Harris of Cadiz, Ohio, was surprised to learn that a disguised employee celebration, was actually a company gathering to recognize her with an Outstanding Service Award. Harris has been the Inn’s breakfast hostess for the past two years. During the celebration she was presented a service award by Days Inn’s General Manager Cathy Banks and Days Inn owner Bob Wolkoff provided her a gift. Pictured left to right are: General Manager Cathy Banks, Betty Harris, and Days Inn Owner Bob Wolkoff.

HARRISON COUNTY – Tuesday morning, a project that was nearly four years in the making finally came to an end when JBAAM Environmental Inc. put the finishing crunch when they put excavator to concrete blocks and they fell like match sticks. Jason Grecco, vice president was all smiles as he’s been waiting to knock this eyesore down for years for Grecco is also a nearby landowner. And not that there is any contamination in the stream that runs behind the old station, Grecco pointed out that this is Muskingum Watershed territory and landowners such as he, wanted to get this taken care of.

Grecco also pointed out that there are still six fuel tanks in the ground with three still holding fuel. He said those will come out of the ground next Tuesday when they have more room to maneuver. The demolition was possible at the behest of a $250,000 grant and Grecco pointed out that, just in case there is any type of ground contamination, which he said there is no reason to believe so, they would be able to apply for an additional $250,000 grant to take care of any problems beyond what they and the county have already dealt with. “We’re excited to see this through,” Grecco said. He added the building was able to come down with no delay because zero asbestos was found inside. If there

were any asbestos then the demolition would have been delayed approximately a month, it was said at the last Harrison County Community Improvement Corporation (HCCIC) meeting. The Ohio Development Services Agency is the one who distributes this type of fund, which is specifically for abandoned gas stations. The owner, who found himself in legal trouble, basically disappeared as the situation was described by several officials. This led to a long legal process that the HCCIC finished with Grecco’s crew being the cherry on top with a small crew doing prep work around the facility before unleashing the excavator. Grecco said some of the remains will be taken to a waste management facility in Waynesburg.

Cadiz’s Betty Harris earns honors from Days Inn By ED BANKS NH Staff Writer

CADIZ - In a time where criticism and disrespect seem to be the order of the day in business, it is certainly a breath of fresh air to hear that someone is being recognized for their hard work, personality and abilities. It is even sweeter when that recognition comes from their peers. When you add all that with the ability to help you start your day with a kind smile and superior service, that someone certainly deserves the recognition. Thus was the case on Monday night at the Days Inn in Cadiz.

Betty Harris of Cadiz, Ohio was surprised to learn that a disguised employee celebration, was actually a company gathering to recognize her with an Outstanding Service Award. Betty has been the Days Inn’s breakfast hostess for the past two years. Days Inn’s General Manager Cathy Banks, had this to say about Harris, “With all that Betty does, she even has been known to memorized [sic] not only the guest’s names, but what they would be having for breakfast. “She would have the orders prepared when the guest came down to breakfast. In addition, she has prepared special orders for guests that were not normally on the day’s menu.

“Betty is a good example of how an employee should perform their daily duties,” Banks added. Betty’s peers look up to her for advice, and pattern their hospitality skills after her example. In earning the award, Harris was nominated by Banks. During the ceremony Banks presented Harris with a certificate of achievement. In a very special presentation, Harris was also presented a gift from Days Inn owner Bob Wolkoff. Wolkoff made the trip to Cadiz just to take part in the festivities and to personally present the gift. The Days Inn by Wyndham is located at 82468 Cadiz-Jewett Road Cadiz, Ohio.

The long awaited demolition of the abandoned gas station along U.S. 250 finally happened early Tuesday morning. BJAAM Environmental, Inc. did the dirty work led by Vice President Jason Grecco (CPG, LRS). The Harrison County Community Improvement Corporation worked out the logistics and legal wrangling over a long period of time. Funds were captured via a grant especially earmarked for abandoned gas stations, which covered the cost.


The Spirit of America’s Story Wall

From PG | 1

Council touched on the OhioMeansJobs program where the state would pay the wages for ages 14 to 24. Hours range from a minimum of 20 per week to a maximum of 37.5 and it lasts into the fall as well as the summer months. “We don’t pay a dime towards this,” council member Ron Hawkins said. Council also briefly addressed the issue of ordering salt where Geanangel told council prices were just released with Harrison County being charged $90.55 per ton. She said they could order 90 percent of need and not 100 percent from ODOT. In comparison, Jefferson County’s

price is higher at $95.64 and Carroll County even higher at $98.05. Council member Don Jochims told council he found a company to do village uniforms for a minimum of $35 per week. He said even with 11 uniforms it would not add up to the $35 but they could have the luxury of adding rugs to be cleaned, for example. “I highly recommend that we do not do that,” Clerk Treasurer Denise Geanangel told him. Jochims said the total would come to $1,820 per year where each employee would receive 11 uniforms but the reception was not very warm to that arrangement. Council member Willie Luther said he could check on a few companies that do uniform work

with labeling and such if someone could get the employee’s sizes for him. He thought some shirts and a jacket for fitting would be good, which council agreed to do. Also, earlier in the meeting council approved of a levy renewal for their general finances. The village released their Memorial Day line-up schedule for conducting services throughout the area. - Beach Springs Cemetery: 10 a.m. - Blue Ridge Cemetery: 10:30 a.m. - Greenwood Cemetery: 11 a.m. - Gables Care Center: 11:30 a.m. - Hopedale Memorial Day Parade (line up at firehouse): 11:30 a.m. The parade begins at noon. - Hopedale Cemetery: 12:30 p.m. - Hopedale Legion: 1 p.m.

Mine Safety Center hosts OMEGA meeting By JD LONG CADIZ – Numerous local officials attended the Ohio MidEastern Governments Association (OMEGA) meeting held Tuesday inside the Mine Safety Training Center on Industrial Park Road in Cadiz. One of the main topics was Opportunity Zones, which is a tax-incentive program where states have the opportunity to nominate low-income areas for potential long-term investment. Ironically, one of the Harrison County communities that did not qualify for Low-to-Moderate Income (LMI) CDBG funds this year, Hopedale, actually qualified last year as an opportunity zone for development. Hopedale was one of only 320 (25 percent of all eligible) of those zones to qualify placing Harrison County as one of the 73 out of the 88 Ohio counties to do so. Executive Director of OMEGA Jeannette Wierzbicki explained communities within the state of Ohio are allowed to submit their qualified areas in hopes of being one of the 25 percent qualified. “It’s to encourage private investment in that area,” she stated. Investors in those qualified

areas then receive a tax benefit for long-term investment. The main speaker for the meeting was Somerset Mayor Tom Johnson. He is also an Executive in Resident at Ohio University (part of Rural Revitalization Partnership Initiative). Johnson explained that the program was incorporated via the federal tax bill of 2017 to benefit both rural and urban areas. He said he could envision a small business owner taking advantage of the tax credit in his own town of Somerset. “The most important thing about opportunity zones is it’s about deferring capital gains tax,” Johnson explained. “[It’s] likely to be someone that has capital gains tax at a higher net worth than an individual that’s going to be interested in this and they can defer taxes for up to 10 years.” Johnson then outlined the three main components to benefit the investor by explaining temporary deferral, reduction in capital gain and exclusion for capital gains in one fell swoop. He said the investor benefits package where taxable income is temporarily deferred “for capital gains reinvested into an Opportunity Fund for up to seven years.”

“But the really big benefit seems to be the exclusion from capital gains if you invest some into an Opportunity Fund and you hold it for 10 years and then you sell it, there’s no tax on the gains at all,” Johnson explained. He then displayed a map outlining the areas of opportunity zones in the state where the southern and southeastern sections held the largest zones. He said the bigger cities such as Cleveland have many zones but they are smaller in size. “In the rural areas census tracts are so big because there’s not as many people in them so the opportunities are great to do multiple things there,” Johnson stated. He said some of the ways communities can prepare themselves for development and investment are zonings that are already in place, land-use plans and make available tax incentives for potential investors. Johnson also touched on what is called, Investment Prospectus, which is described as a “hybrid” of three approaches for Opportunity Zones. The hybrid consists of a community marketing strategy, which is basically a style of self promotion and what the

Somerset Mayor Tom Johnson spoke at the OMEGA executive board meeting held Tuesday at the Mine Safety Training Center on Industrial Park Road. Johnson highlighted Opportunity Zones as the main topic where low to moderate income areas can be opportunities for investment with tax deferments as incentives.

community has to offer; an economic development policy brief and a private investment memorandum. “It’s important to show that this community is redevelopment ready and welcomes development but the real goal if you can do it is, find developers and people that… have projects that they’re wanting

investors to invest in,” Johnson said. Some of the Harrison County officials in attendance were Economic Development Director Nick Homrighausen, Cadiz Mayor Ken Zitko and Commissioners Paul Coffland and Don Bethel. “[It’s] always nice to bring people to Harrison County and showcase the strides we have made. The

opportunity zones and chances for development in Rumley, Green, German, Archer Township areas and Hopedale are another tool for us to attract business development and investment,” Coffland later stated. A regular executive board meeting took place after Johnson spoke.

Harrison Coal & Reclamation holds annual dinner By ESTHER MCCOY NH CONTRIBUTOR

CADIZ - One of the areas of interest to past and present coal miners at the Harrison Coal and Reclamation annual dinner is the auction of past coal mining items and the memories dredged up by miners who operated the Gem of Egypt, Silver Spade or Big Muskie and draglines and shovels that performed their tasks of coal removal through the years. There were mining hard hats, a coal pick, copies of the Hanna News, belt buckles, watch fobs and many other items  donated so the organization can earn needed money to keep  showing how the area once worked in a time when "Coal was King" of Harrison and Jefferson counties.   Many of the past and present workers visiting the Wallace Lodge wandered around looking at the mining items to be auctioned or stopped and talked with someone else who was interested in the industry. Larry Hutchison of Lafferty worked in the mines for 50 years before retirement. The places he worked were in the Bailey Mine in Pennsylvania, Franklin Mine in Illinois, a New Mexico mine,


From PG | 1 Council member Rick Meneely commented to Carter that there had been some abuses in the past but, “not very often.” Carter acknowledged that and said an officer in the past, had been fired. Council member Paul Prevot said he was responsible for a call questioning why a Jewett cruiser was in Wintersville. Carter said it was him recruiting for officers at the academy, which apparently triggered his explanation for reasons they might be seen outside Jewett limits. “I wasn’t bitching, I wasn’t complaining, no one called me…I wasn’t assuming anything,” Prevot explained stating he was just asking. Carter


From PG | 1 with the gas tax calling it a, “huge debacle.” He said when discussion reached the senate it appeared things were to remain on status quo. “I was looking at it from the perspective, especially in our district [that] we need to get the funding to fix the damn roads,” Hoagland told the crowd. “Although I didn’t really use the term ‘fix the roads’ because I don’t believe we need to fix our roads, I think we need to rebuild our roads.” Hoagland said a proposal to place $34 million to go directly to county engineers “got canned.” He said they resubmitted the proposal and once again they tossed it out. He said after it being rejected a third time they injected the funds as part of the capital budget. “We put that money back in there again, as a matter of fact we expanded it…” Hoagland said explaining that since they couldn’t get the $34 million they upped the amount to $50 million. “So, we’re going to try and take one-third of that money

another in Alabama and finally at Consol from where he retired. All were underground mines, he noted. Edward Eschman worked in a different  type of hauling, he worked for the Dalton Mining Sand and Gravel Co. for 47 years.  Howard Huggins of Wintersville another of the group checking out the mining items for auction didn't work in the mining industry but was employed at Weirton Steel and the last member of the group, Edward Grim worked for the W.H. Samis Co. where 650 tons of coal was moved each hour. State Senator Frank Hoagland was present and was glancing at the enlarged photos of the shovels from years past laid out on the table. He is still very much interested in keeping the mining industry alive at the state level.  The speaker was a retired Central Ohio Coal Co engineer, Steve Hook, who is now  the current Morgan County, Ohio, engineer. He showed the story of the Big Muskie on the screen, from its dedication on May 22, 1969, to its demise and all that was left of it was its bucket. The size of the Big Muskie was 151 feet in width, 48 feet in

length, 222 feet boom height and at a cost of $25 million. When it was destroyed, it sold for $52,000, nothing like the amount that it cost for all the work that was produced. No one thought it would happen but it did, Hook told the audience.  Birney Auctions was in charge of the auction with Steve Birney as auctioneer and Roger Edwards as the lookout for bids. Several of the dragline framed pictures went for over $270  and  the Consol large outdoor thermometer that stressed no time lost at work went for over $200.  Howard Bowers was recognized for the loan of  equipment for work on the park and Bill Host was recognized as an auctioneer in the past. The HCRHP wants to keep the memory of these gigantic draglines and shovels alive for the next generation. Their mission is to preserve the history of the mining, construction, logging, transportation and oil and gas industries  for those who never realized the type of work their grandfathers accomplished. The HCRHP group was organized in 1992 and in 1994 opened as a park, which

said he alerts the Mayor (Dwight Busby) when it’s necessary to leave village limits. “So, if I hear something from the public I just wanted to address so everybody’s not throwing the police department under the bus, or the general public,” Carter stated. The issue then moved to money and what officers are being paid, especially the new ones coming aboard. Busby said the officer with experience deserves at least $13 (dollars per hour) but the one out of the academy would have to start lower. “That’s the problem we’re running into is the money, I mean everybody’s got the same problem [in] small villages but you can’t expect these guys to go out there and take a chance in getting run over or shot, or abused for the same thing a guy’s

making working at the Dollar Store,” Meneely stated. “I mean it’s common sense, you can’t ask them to do it.” Carter said he saw the problem at the academy where they’re reaching out to find officers at $20 per hour range and finding it difficult. “It’s a dying field and nobody wants to be into it…” Carter explained. In other items addressed, council felt it was a good time to re-address the police levy they’ve been after for the past several years. Council felt the timing was right because there will only be one other levy, the general expense levy, which they also approved of at the meeting. Treasurer Linda Ager said it had failed three times previously and received council’s approval for a fourth attempt.

and it expand it so we can get some broadband done,” he said. Opening up the meeting was Ohio Utilities Protection Services’ Matt Hennis on what needs to be done regarding excavating and who to call and why. Hennis stressed that they are not only a not-for-profit

company, which began in 1972, but their name is now OH811. Hennis stressed the importance of calling a protection service such as OH811 anytime a private individual, as well as a company is digging, or excavating as he called it.

The Harrison Coal and Reclamation 25th annual dinner had a nice turnout of those who had been or still worked in the coal industry when "Coal was King," or those who knew about it through a relative. Holding a framed picture of the Big Muskie, the world's largest walking dragline ever built, and standing before many other mining shovel pictures to be auctioned off were from left, Dale Davis, vice president; Claren Blackburn, president; and Steve Hook, retired Central Ohio Coal Co. engineer  who spoke of the 50th anniversary of the Big Muskie that had been dedicated on May 22, 1969. He showed the story of the Big Muskie on a large screen in front of the audience.

ADENA- With talk of grants, audits, and city violations, this month’s council meeting revolved around two main issues: a monstrous power bill and undetermined sources of water spurting from yards and driveways. The community center, an integral piece of Adena’s community, continues to drain the funds. In an attempt to cut costs, the council closes the building for three winter months—January, February and March. In spite of this action, subsequent power bills this year were $2,093, $1,924, and $1,230. “The furnace never shuts off! We pull the breaker, but someone keeps fixing it to keep it running,” said Treasurer Bobbie Gaffney. The council recently doled out $32,000 for a new roof, so sky-high power bills are not in their budget. To be fair, Gaffney noted the main renters are not the problem. The

Vibrant Living

council promotes groups like the women’s club and others who give back to the community by not asking for compensation, and the Legion pays for their own propane. The problem purportedly lies in individuals who are accessing the building and tampering with the climate controls. Meanwhile, several community members struggle to find answers about strange water leaks. Carol Piazza Bednar told the council her yard has turned into a swamp—trees are dying and they are unable to mow. The problem has supposedly been ongoing for 15 months. Another concerned community member stated that water abnormally surges from the middle of her driveway. Anderson, a council member, mentioned the water had been tested and no chlorine was found, proving that it wasn’t city water. This remark did not appease the women. “Something is clearly wrong,” remarked

Bednar, while another added that it is certainly not a normal water flow. Further, Police Chief Carpenter reported that he had seen water spouting up from a man hole, but that it had subsided. Gaffney assured the attendees that the council would look into it. In other news, the naming of the bridge is at a standstill as community members are split between naming it in honor of the late Dale Stock, killed in Vietnam, or in honor of all Veterans. Some suggest that choosing one person may make other vets feel left out, while those who knew Dale want to commemorate his valor. Gaffney passed the responsibility on to Legion members for a more comprehensive opinion. The decision will be made once a representative from the Legion attends a council meeting to officially propose a name to be voted on.

14-Flag Day, June 20-First Day of Spring, and June 21-Father's Day SMITHFIELD BY Esther McCoy A booth on the prevention of Lyme disease, offered by the Harrison Community Hospital, had brochure telling had to prevent the problem that can cause great damage to one's health at the Harrison County Veterans Health Fair. They had a plastic spoon that I first thought was a measuring spoon but it had a cut-out indention in the front for removing ticks attached to the skin. Directions on using the spoon were to place the wide part of the notch on the skin near the tick, holding skin taunt if necessary; apply slight pressure downward on the skin; and slide the remover forward so the small part of the notch is framing the tick. Then cautiously with a sliding motion of the remover, detach the tick. If no such spoon is available, use tweezers to grasp the tick close to the skin with tweezers and pull gently until the tick lets go. Some words of caution were to wear tick repellent, check for ticks daily, shower soon after being outdoors and call a doctor if there is a rash or fever. I know some people with Lyme disease and it is a forever problem. Take care. Had you realized that May 8 was VE Day, celebrated in 1945 with great joy? Armed Forces Day is May 18 and no one ever forgets Memorial Day, now celebrated as a three day holiday weekend but should be also observed by going to a veterans service that day. Lamont and I thoroughly enjoyed the Veterans Fishing Day at Mingo Sportsman's Club on May 5. It was great having lunch and talking with our good buddy, Jay Kolenc; and his friends from Hopedale, Lawrence Oliver; Jerry Capers;  and VeeJay Beadling. Lamont had not had an occasion to see Ron Kontra since the 2018 fishing adventure and they talked about their years managing the Smithfield Little League Spartans and even won a county tournament one year.  Jeff Pesta, Harrison County Veterans Service Officer helped me gather together three avid fishermen, Gary Green of Deersville, Larry Oliver of Hopedale and Bob Hirschbach of Cadiz to take a picture on the dock. Larry Bowrsock had a nice size trout and Kyle Dynes caught two that were looking like they would fill a large-size frying pan. All was great except for a slide I took in the mud and came down with a thud, naturally around a collection people. At times like that I just want put my head down on my knees and stay in that position until everyone leaves and then just crawl away. I must say that everyone was nice about asking if I was hurt and helping me up. Not a thing was hurt but my pride and the seat of my jeans that were mud covered. Being offered a wonderful steak dinner made up for all the mud though. Great job Mingo Sportsmen guys. I know those veterans really had a great time. Thanks to the Capital Health groups for their door prize of a patriotic basket. After some coaxing by Nancy Felton, Lamont decided to write his name on a ticket and was the winner. It is a great gift. Thanks to the groups who comprise Capital Health. With Mother's  Day now past here are some good ways to still show your love to your Mom: Call or text just to say "Good Morning." Give her a big hug when you first see her and when you leave. Send a cheery letter sometime, even if you saw her two days before. Everyone likes to get mail and take her to visit a friend. You could learn about her past by just listening. DEERSVILLE By Susan Adams  May 24, Friday will be the Deersville Community Fire Department Fireman's Fair.

Veterans News Submitted by the Harrison County Veterans Service Office | 740-942-8441

New improvements to V.A. healthcare Many Veterans have been confused with the availability options for local health care when the V.A. facilities are miles away from their home. Congress passed and the President signed into law the V.A. Mission act of 2018 as a

way of improving those options for Veterans. The implementation of the Mission Act is still not complete, but Veterans need to be aware of the changes and what is required of them in order to participate.


Foremost, the Veteran must be enrolled in the V.A. Healthcare system and then, co-ordinate and get approval with the V.A. before obtaining care from a community provider. The V.A. has put forth 6 eligibility requirements, but Veterans only

must meet one of them. The Mission Act also expands eligibility for caregivers. For more information on these new V.A. programs, contact the Harrison County Veterans Service Office at 740-942-844

It was noted that three quotes were received from Bowerston in the amounts of $56,935, $58,500 and $68,000. “…The lowest bid was the $56,000 and we requested $30,000,” Baker explained. “At the time that we had to go back to these contractors we had already had our council meeting and Jody had made contact with me…” He said he was told by Hennis the bids were high and needed to go back to the contractors again, which he said they did. Baker said his next council meeting wasn’t until after this HCPC meeting but spoke with his village’s financial

committee who were in agreement over the balance “if they were to get the $30,000 grant.” Hennis then stated according to Bowerston’s finance committee they would “agree to committing $28,000 pending council’s approval.” Hennis said they were under a timeline in order to get the public hearing notices read. “The second public hearing requires us to list the chosen projects so, I guess that’s where we stand,” Hennis stated. Baker stated he was upset when he saw that Bowerston was listed as an alternate to the four other entities in the county. “I did try to work with Jody and evidently that must not have been a good idea to work with her,” Baker shot back. Hennis apologized but said she did try and said she had asked the commissioners what to do with Bowerston’s request and multiple quotes.

Hennis’s recommendation for Bowerston to go back to the construction companies regarding their quotes. She explained, stating the “three contractors were not bidding on the same linear feet of length, they were not bidding on the same thicknesses of the material so, I wanted to give them a fighting chance…” She explained she just wanted all contractors to bid on the same thing “so we would have three quotes that you all could look at to determine that it was going to be a liable project.” Hennis did acknowledge that Baker did get those answers back to her on April 24 via fax. When Coffland stated there was no letter from Bowerston council, or fiscal officer, stating funds were available Hennis said there was not. “We don’t have council’s approval, no, I’m sorry,” Hennis answered.

to pave that road.” “It’s a very rough street believe me,” Baker said. Hennis stated, to Coffland’s agreement, if Bowerston had been able to present their letter they would have been moved out of the alternate position. Baker said they hadn’t had a council meeting in order to finalize things and prepare a letter for the board. When Coffland asked if they could still be voted on Hennis replied that there wasn’t enough time to have another meeting if Bowerston would not vote in favor of spending the funds to complete the project.

Hopedale Comets remain perfect at 4 - 0 By ED BANKS

NH Sports Writer HOPEDALE - In today’s quest for perfection, many endeavors wind up on the path to ordinary conclusions. Fortunately, there are those who stay the course and move on despite the bumps in the road that have discouraged many. The Hopedale Comets youth baseball team was in Hopedale on Monday night to face the visiting Spartans of Smithfield. Sporting a perfect 3 - 0 record coming into the contest, the Comets were looking to extend their undefeated streak, and stay on the road to perfection.

Hopedale opened the contest with some heavy hitting and sound good defense. They would go on to win the contest in four innings over the Spartans with a score of 15-0. Olin Wade pitched a nohitter with 11 strike-outs. The Comets had four home runs provided by Gage Stoneking, Olin Wade, Kolton Mizer, and Hunter Snyder. Gage Stoneking and Kolton Mizer each had three hits. With the win the Comets are 4-0. The Comets will be back in action on Saturday, May 18, at Brilliant at 12:30 p.m., Monday the 20th at Hopedale versus Richmond at 6 p.m. and on Tuesday May 21, at Hopedale versus East Springfield at 6 p.m.

Harrison Career Center welders certify 100 percent Indian Creek stadium upgrades to begin May 20 WINTERSVILLE- Indian Creek High School’s Kettlewell Memorial Stadium will get a new look with improvement projects slated to begin on May 20. The football field will receive artificial turf and updated lighting as part of the plan and should be ready when the Redskins kick off their new season this fall. District Assistant Superintendent John Belt said the field grass will be replaced with artificial material from Canada-based Field Turf. School board officials contracted with sports field architect J.T. Sauer & Associates of Burgettstown, Pa., to undertake the work and the firm has been involved in similar projects at West Virginia University, West Liberty University and Brooke High School. “It will be a multi-sport artificial surface that will be used for soccer and football,” he explained. “The soccer team currently plays at the field in Mingo.” Additionally, Prestige Energy of Michigan will upgrade the site with LED lighting to brighten the view. That project entails removing the metal halide and cans containing the bulbs and replacing the lights with LED fixtures, while the existing light poles will remain in use.

“It’s set to start May 20 and will take about six to eight weeks,” Belt said. “The stadium will be closed to the public during construction.” He said the last project at the site included updating the women’s bathrooms and painting under the grandstands half a decade ago. “We’ve done periodic maintenance and repairs, but as far as significant work it’s been five years.” The projects are being financed through a tax anticipation loan supported by permanent improvement funding. In related matters, the district also plans to improve its transportation garage with a fresh coat of paint. Belt said the bus parking bays will be painted this summer to match the red and white hues of the mechanic’s bays and work should start after July 1. Fitzpatrick Roofing and Painting of Barnesville, the same company which completed the mechanic’s bay update last summer, has been contracted for the latest work and the $15,000 cost is being defrayed through the general fund. “The last time it was painted was 15 years ago and [this project] should take a week,” Belt noted.

teachers, and I am looking forward to many more years as a part of Edison,” she said. As an intervention specialist, Gump has a few quotes that help to guide her philosophy: “Every child is gifted. They just unwrap their packages at different times.” -- Unknown “If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.” – Michael J. Fox

Buckeye Career Center holds signing day for students, area companies NEW PHILADELPHIA, (May 15, 2019) – A large group of employers, parents, staff members, and soon-to-be graduates filled the Joe Carlisle Café at Buckeye Career Center for the school’s first annual Career-Technical/Military Signing Day. The event, held May 15, 2019 featured 40 students who have been hired for full-time employment with 18 local companies, including the U.S. Army. The students were called to a signing table individually to sign “letters of intent” and have his/her photo taken with a company official from their respective employer. The initial event was created in 2018 following a request by Allied Machine & Engineering. BCC’s first Signing Day featured only Allied, with a separate ceremony for students entering the military. The school decided to combine the events in 2019 and invite all companies who have hired 2019 graduates. “We wanted to thank our employers for giving our students full-time employment opportunities, with many beginning work well ahead of graduation,” said BCC Public Relations Coordinator Shyanne Carroll. Students enlisting in the military were also administered the “Oath of Enlistment” by U.S. Army Commander Captain Dominic Wilson. “We are thrilled to have had so many companies participate and we can’t wait to see that number grow next year,” said Carroll. Unlike athletic and academic signing day events, BCC’s Career-Technical/Military Signing Day highlights students who have committed to entering the workforce following graduation. Buckeye Career Center Superintendent Bob Alsept believes the event is

a culmination of a successful school year and academic career for the students. “We teach students the hard skills that allow them to get jobs. We teach the soft skills that allow students to keep jobs and advance in them. Finally, we connect these students with great employers who know that Buckeye Career Center will provide well-trained students

who know how to conduct themselves in the workplace," said Alsept. Truck Sales & Service had two students participate. Human Resources Manager Chloe Herbert appreciates the partnership her company has with Buckeye Career Center and its students. “We have worked with BCC a long time and have developed a great

relationship with the school. Plus, we not only feel it’s important to support our community through BCC, but we also feel strongly in supporting each one of our employees in all that they do,” said Herbert. “This was a big day for our student techs and we wanted to welcome them aboard the correct way!”

Three ways to kick your Prepping for outdoor activities plastic habit this summer safely and efficiently (StatePoint) Summer is the perfect time of year to take stock of the way you quench your thirst, whether in the backyard, at the beach, around the campfire or in route to your next adventure. Unfortunately, society has become addicted to the convenience of plastic, especially when it comes to the way we hydrate. Globally, 1 million single-use plastic water bottles are purchased per minute, and on average, Americans purchase 50 billion water bottles per year, equating to about 13 bottles per month for every U.S.

citizen. Think all that plastic gets reused? Think again -- 90.5 percent of plastic has never been recycled; a figure that was International Statistic of the Year in 2018 according to the Great Britain’s Royal Statistical Society. Besides being an eyesore, plastic hurts the environment, wildlife and human health. Virtually every piece of plastic ever made still exists, as it takes between 500 to 1,000 years to degrade. Much of it has changed shape over time into microplastics -- small pieces less than five millimeters in diameter that end up in waterways, ground water and marine life and have been shown to absorb toxic chemicals linked to cancer and other diseases. So, what can you do to help turn the tide on your own plastic consumption? This summer, consider upgrading your hydration habits in the following ways: 1. A plastic-free pour. In the pursuit of always having a

source of great-tasting, healthy water at home, many families stock their fridge with single-use water bottles. That adds up to a lot of plastic! For a far more sustainable solution, use a water filter pitcher, such as the LifeStraw Home, which is the only pitcher to filter microplastics (in addition to other contaminants including bacteria, lead and mercury). Made from shatter-resistant glass, it’s ideal for everyday use or even when entertaining guests on the back patio. 2. The last straw. If you’re an iced tea or iced coffee lover, you know that plastic straws quite literally suck. In fact, half a million straws are used globally each day, and they’re tough to recycle. Skip the straw entirely or bring your own reusable straw with you on coffee runs. 3. Hydrate safely anywhere. Whether you’re trekking up a mountain or running around town doing errands, the hot summer weather will make you extra thirsty. Be prepared to hydrate on the go with a reusable water bottle that features a filter and is designed for travel. For example, the LifeStraw Go (and the LifeStraw Play for young children) filters out microplastics, bacteria, protozoa and other toxins and contaminants found in many water supplies; a good choice for when traveling domestically or internationally. Why LifeStraw? LifeStraw products are the only water filters tested to remove microplastics and, they also make a global impact -- every product purchased provides a child in need with safe drinking water for an entire year. A few simple changes to your at-home and on-the-go hydration routine can help you reduce your plastic use and protect the environment.


(StatePoint) From landscaping, to tending the lawn and garden to getting your family’s recreational equipment prepped for warm weather, the common denominator is that these activities require fuel to get going. Now is the ideal time of year to make sure equipment is properly fueled, and fuel storage containers are in tiptop shape. “Whether it’s using a tiller to start a garden or preparing the family boat for the first fishing trip of the year, consumers rely on fuel to jumpstart seasonal activities,” says Daniel Marshall, vice president of marketing and business development with Scepter, a manufacturer of North American-made fuel containers. “Gasoline, kerosene and diesel fuel all link people to projects and activities outside the home. It’s important to prepare and use fuel containers both safely and smartly.” Here are some things to keep in mind, according to Marshall: Getting Started There’s nothing more annoying than preparing to cut the lawn and finding there’s no gas in the mower and your gas can is empty. If you happen to make this discovery when prepping for a storm or other emergency, this situation goes from irritating to distressing. Monitor your at-home fuel supply so you’re never caught empty-handed. When taking inventory of supplies, consider the age of your fuel. Safely discard older fuel that’s been sitting unused for many months, as gas components can deteriorate over time. You can better track this by labeling containers. Remember, the fuel you used for winter chores was probably a unique “winter

By being safe about the use of fuel, you can enjoy a safe summer of trimming, cutting, and whatever other chores need done.

mix” blend. For warm weather chores, get a new “summer mix.” Changing fuel seasonally will mean better performance of equipment and help guarantee a fresh supply. Easy Does It Proper fuel storage can help you complete chores quickly, safely and efficiently. The key is selecting containers that provide clean, fast and hasslefree pours, such as SmartControl fuel containers from Scepter. Made of high-density polyethylene for rugged durability, these 1-, 2- and 5gallon containers, available for gasoline, diesel and kerosene, feature an innovative spout design that eliminates spills. The user-controlled flow valve makes it easy to direct the amount of fuel being dispensed, and because the container stores with the spout on, hands stay clean. Always be Safe To protect your household, replace old, rusty and leaking metal fuel containers with models boasting the latest safety standards, including flame mitigation devices (FMDs), as well as child safety caps on the spout, as

mandated by current law. Then, store containers in secure, dry locations away from heat sources, pets and children. “Your best bet is to look at every safety feature when purchasing a new fuel container, ensuring it meets or exceeds industry standards and definitely has an FMD,” says Marshall. Safe use of fuel is also essential. Never use your fuel container around fire pits, burn piles, barbeques, the fireplace, fire embers or other sources of ignition. Gasoline should never be confused with lighter fluid. One reason this is so dangerous, is that when you use gas or other fuels, heavy unseen vapors will surround you as you pour. If this happens near any type of fire or source of ignition, these vapors can explode, which will likely result in serious injury or worse to you or those around you. Be smart and use fuel for equipment only. This summer, be sure to fuel your household’s chores and recreational activities as safely, cleanly and efficiently as possible.

However, our nurses truly are the heart of what we do here at Wheeling Hospital and our gratitude and appreciation is sent to them every day of the year.  We are extremely proud and blessed to have such a dedicated and talented team of nurses at Wheeling Hospital.”      Wheeling Hospital Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer Kathy Stahl said, “National Nurses Week is a week where we celebrate the vital role and the contribution that nurses make every day. Our nurses associated with the entire Wheeling Hospital family are dedicated and committed in promoting and improving health care for our patients and our community.  I am very proud to be a part  of our nursing workforce and all that they do to improve the quality of patient care at Wheeling Hospital and all of our affiliates.” Also nominated for Nurse Excellence Awards from Wheeling Hospital were: Rhiannon Poppe, Michelle Sabinski, Jim Day, Bethany Passmore, Penny Pettit, Kelsay Garvin, Janina Balcita, Maxine Hicks, Kelsey Nicholes, Lisa Applegarth, Dianna “Shelly” Osborne, Eric Schultz, Theresa “Tess” Riley, Brenda Seidler, Megan Allen, Jo Ellen Taylor,

Jennifer Dunlap updated the club on the baskets for the Sally Buffalo Days and passed a sign-up for donations of money and/or items for this project. The group

will be doing an Ohio State basket, an Italian basket and a children's basket. Tickets will be sold in advance, so one does not have to be there to win. Thanks was extended to Dolly Ferraro and Anna Mizer for their donation of baskets for this event. Thank you was given to Jennifer Dunlap for organizing this fund raising event and for the great job she is doing with the Facebook page to keep the community and club members informed regarding the clubs activities.

Ohio rep. Don Jones to speak at Bowerston Memorial Day event BOWERSTON- Bowerston’s Mayor Milo Baker announced the Village of Bowerston will hold its annual Memorial Day celebration on Monday, May 27. The event will be held at Bowerston’s Gateway Memorial Park, by the historic cannon. Baker, who has been instrumental in organizing Bowerston’s Memorial Day Service, announced Troy Akins, disc Jockey from Music du Jour, will kick off the ceremony at 11:30, before Conotton Valley’s marching band is featured playing patriotic tunes, beginning at 12 p.m.

This year’s guest speaker is State of Ohio Representative of the 95th House District Don Jones who is serving his first term in the Ohio House of Representatives. He represents the 95th District, which includes Carroll, Harrison and Noble counties, as well as portions of Washington and Belmont counties. Jones was an agricultural education teacher and FFA advisor at Harrison Central High School for 23 years, and worked with students in grades 7-12. He also works at his family’s farm equipment

dealership, D&J Sales and Service Inc. He has been a certified volunteer fireman and emergency medical technician (EMT) for the last 27 years with the Deersville Community VFD & Emergency Squad.

All Veterans will be honored and everyone is invited and welcome to attend.

Bluegrass in the Hills slated for June By JD LONG

HOPEDALE – This year’s Bluegrass In The Hills by Mickey’s Mountain Productions (88101 Ford Road, Hopedale), as usual is loaded with top-notch talent. The message that he and his partner Ruth Hendershot wish to get across is that the image that people may have of Bluegrass isn’t what you may actually see and experience. Calvin and Ruth want people to know that, because the highly entertaining performers he gets to play at his festival each year certainly won’t let you leave with anything but an entertaining experience, and they’re good —very good. This year Calvin and Ruth will have transportation from the parking area to the staging area, and you might even be driven by one of the stars, if you don’t catch them serving you free bean soup and cornbread on Wednesday nights. Also, there will be more camper hookups than ever before (160), and the normal covered pavilion with terrace seating and dry camping sites. All shows begin at 10 a.m. with an open stage kicking the day off but Tuesday evening, just to get a jump on things is karaoke, which is free to the

public. Other than that all people need is a lawn chair and a great appetite for some great food, as Calvin likes to say. Also, all food and the eleven choices of pie are home cooked including the rib eye steaks and rotisserie chicken. And don’t forget about Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl of Zanesville supplying five flavors to Mickey’s crowd. Calvin also has Mickey’s Mountain sweet greens, which includes a secret recipe. “You’ll have to come out and see for yourself,” he says with a grin. The real show begins on Wednesday, June 5 and rolls on through Saturday, June 8 offering up eight quality performers headlined by Johnny & Jeanette Williams, a family oriented band by the name of Williamson Branch (Jeanette is a three-time vocalist of the year), and a local band called Awesum Possum. Thursday follows with six more acts led by Nothin’ Fancy who will go on later in the night. Mickey said they’ve been pegged the act of the year for some 15 years in a row. Friday, six more acts beginning with David Parmley & Cardinal Tradition and later on Junior Sisk, male vocalist of the year for three years running. Saturday closes out with a bang as all six

performers are award winners. Grammy winner, Rhonda Vincent & The Rage opens with David Atkins, who Mickey said actually got his start on Bluegrass In The Hills finishes it up. He said Atkins now has his own recording contract and plays all over the United States. Another feature Calvin is offering is free instrument clinics all week by Mike Mitchell (Floyd School of Music, Galax, Va.), along with members of Remington Ryde. And this year’s emcee is Kody Norris. Bluegrass In The Hills is good family fun, great entertainment, great homemade food and like they said, it may not be what you’re expecting. Calvin said it’s not some drunken affair that some attach to country music, and even though they don’t endorse alcohol, he said they don’t say you can’t have any. But if you bring it, just cover it up and enjoy the music. “You’re not just sitting and listening, you’re entertained by the country’s best,” Ruth said with pleasure. For tickets, Calvin Mickey can be reached at: 740-3915631 or email:

Power plant status remains the same By JD LONG HARRISON COUNTY – A local report stating that the Harrison Power plant would be breaking ground in July is not necessarily true. That still may happen as EmberClear, the parent company of Harrison Power told local officials earlier in the year that groundbreaking could take place anywhere from January of this year up to July. Economic Development Director for Harrison County Nick Homrighausen said nothing has changed since their last update, which took place at the Harrison County Community Improvement Corporation (HCCIC) meeting two weeks ago. Reached by phone Tuesday NH Photo | ED BANKS

County Home holds Mother’s Day celebration The Harrison County Home pulled out all the stops in preparing for a Mother’s Day celebration this past Saturday. The event was so big, volunteers came to the Home and helped with the decorating and food preparation. As for the food, Activities Director Kim Burgins prepared a feast at home and carried it in as a special gift to the residents. Also, many family members and staff contributed items and participated in the serving of the food. Many guests arrived and celebrated with their family members and friends. Pictured is the staff and volunteers as they gather in the kitchen for a quick break and a little approach strategy. Also pictured is some of the decorating in the dining room and residents and family members as they begin to fill the dining area.

afternoon, Homrighausen repeated what he’d said at that meeting and that is nothing has changed and he has heard nothing new since. “There’s nothing new to report,” Homrighausen began. “Nothing new to report per the press release in January…” In that press release EmberClear gave their window of possibility for groundbreaking, which was a wide gap existing from January to July 1. Homrighausen said there is no penalty if the plant does not break ground by July as it was only their own time frame and not something mandated by the state. He said the plant has already been approved by the Ohio Siting Board and basically, all major hurdles have been cleared. “They’re still on track for the first half of this year, which basically states…before July 1st,”

Homringhausen explained. Commissioner Paul Coffland stated Tuesday that he feels they’re now dealing with workers and the contract side of things, as a water agreement with the village of Cadiz was already approved months ago among other things. “I think it’s taking them longer than what they thought it would,” He stated. According to real estate transfer documents signed by the Harrison County Auditor’s Office, the property consists of exactly 12.50 acres. The Grantor is listed as, Gray Wolf LLC and the document was signed as late as Dec. 21 of 2018. Interestingly, Harrison Power LLC is listed as a “Delaware limited liability company” but with a Houston, Texas. mailing address.
