Beacon urges a “Yes” vote on County Parks levy

| May 6, 2013

walking-trees-fullThe Coshocton County Beacon supports the Coshocton County Community Parks levy and encourages our readers to vote “Yes” on this important cog in the wheel that keeps our community thriving. For a mere few dollars per year, (.63 cents per month per $50,000 of assessed value) this beautiful link in our community can continue providing a place for hiking, biking, walking, recreation, soccer, fishing – as evidenced by the nearly 500 youth that took part in Saturday’s Fishing Derby – and of course, camping and more. And if supporting Lake Park isn’t enough, the levy will also provide funds for nine other parks; City of Coshocton, Village of Warsaw, Village of West Lafayette, Bakersville Community Park, Village of Conesville, Village of Nellie, Newcastle Township, Village of Plainfield and Tiverton Township. Passing this levy is important for our community. Pleasant parks tell visitors to Coshocton County that this is a nice place to live. And it is. Let’s help keep it that way with a “yes” vote on Tuesday, May 7. We realize that for some, this amount may be challenging. We understand. Perhaps there is something that you can reduce just a tad to make this workable. It is good for all of us regardless of whether you spend time at a park or not. Maybe someone in your family does, a grandchild, nephew, niece or child. It is important for their future that we keep Coshocton County a good place to be. Vote ‘Yes”. Thank you.

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; 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.
