Iron Lady

DSC_0469COSHOCTON In another finger nail biting contest for the judges, “Gertrude B Clow”, aka Ben Doyle, was named the 2013 Miss Relay for Life. “If you’re going to do it, you might as well do it right”. Ben said he was going for, “the senile old woman” look. Doyle was a member of the Clow Water Systems Relay for Life team. Doyle said about being involved in the Relay, “It’s just a good thing all around. It’s helping people; it’s in memory of a lot of people. This is about my fifth or sixth Miss Relay contest. Doyle was named “Miss Congeniality” last year and was Miss Relay a few years ago.” Jodi Seibert of Miss Jodi’s Dance was the emcee. “She said, “When they asked me last year, it was just a fluke. Now I’m hooked. It’s the best thing ever. It makes you smile. It gives you a happy thought because of the situation and everyone has to smile when they do it. This year’s contestants were beautiful, just beautiful. Not too shaved, but beautiful nonetheless. I think we were a little lacking in the beauty, but they were gorgeous. They were intelligent, somewhat.” With this year’s winner being perhaps the “oldest” winner ever, Seibert said, “I think this adds a new element. We can still be beautiful and elderly. Just because you’re young, doesn’t mean you’re going to win everything. Maybe the experience won out this year.”

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.
