Share was one of hundreds of children who participated in the annual event organized by the Coshocton County Sportsmen Association (CCSA). “We had around 225 kids signed up by 11 a.m. and we are fully expecting there to be 400 plus before it’s over,” said Bob Bigrigg, treasurer of the CCSA. “They are catching the fish today too. We’ve already given out at least 20 prizes and they still have three hours to fish.” Share won $10 for his fish because it was one of the many tagged fish released before the derby. The CCSA received financial support for this year’s derby from a $2,500 donation from America’s Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund and directed by local farmer Chuck Garbrandt of Coshocton County. The donation helped the CCSA and the Coshocton City and County Park District prepare for the fishing derby and will provide support for the CCSA Summer Youth Programs.

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
