Baked goods auction leaves yummy taste

| October 1, 2018

COSHOCTON – The annual baked goods auction held on the opening evening of the Coshocton County Fair brings together a great group of bakers and those that enjoy what they bake. This year was no exception as the bidding was frantic and over the average, especially for the cakes. Nanci Rogers paid $60 for the Best of Show Hickory Nut cake baked by Pamala McMorrow. Local auctioneers give of their time and talent to move things along as cakes, breads, rolls, cookies, muffins and more are all auctioned to help raise funds for continued improvements and maintenance of the art hall. Pictured is Jackson Rawe, the 4 year old grandson of Dan and Jan Uher, who is ready to enjoy a chocolate cupcake that only took a few seconds to auction and then make it from the box to his waiting mouth. “He loves chocolate cupcakes,” said Dan. Jackson is the son of Jackie and Scot Rawe.

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.

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; 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.
