| June 7, 2013

DSC_0094COSHOCTON A low ceiling prevented the Friday night launch of the hot air balloons. Balloon pilots and chase crews will meet at the fairgrounds at 6 a.m. on Saturday morning to get an update to see if weather conditions are right for the Saturday morning flight. The Railers performed at the grand stand to the delight of fans. The group was just signed by Warner Brothers. More entertainment will be provided on Saturday and Sunday of the festival. The 32nd annual Hot Air Balloon Festival is sponsored by Frontier Power. Balloons are sponsored by local businesses and organizations. Several members of The Railers are pictured.

About the Author ()

I live with my beautiful wife Nancy on a small farm just outside Coshocton. We have been married for thirty two years and have two grown children, Jessica and Jacob. Jessica is married to Aaron Mencer and they are employed with Coshocton City Schools. Jacob is a sophomore at Kent State University. I graduated from River View High School, have a Bachelor’s Degree from North Carolina Wesleyan University and am actively involved with the Roscoe United Methodist Church, serve on several local committees and am a member of the Coshocton Kiwanis Club, having served as Past-President. I love reading, especially military thrillers, the Civil War and history in general. My goal is to write a novel. My wife and I are also AdvoCare distributors and encourage anyone wanting to lose weight, gain energy and better health to explore AdvoCare at our website; www.fortunes4advocare.com. I love the media field, innovative technology and have worked in newspapers for over 30 years – in fact, my first job was delivering newspapers. The Beacon is a dream made possible by the support of this community and a great team. I hope to continue serving Coshocton County for many years.
