On the mark

| June 8, 2013

DSC_0110COSHOCTON Sean Askren, hometown Middletown, Ohio, was the first balloon pilot to toss his beanbag marker towards the target during the Saturday morning flight. Attempting to come as close to the “T” target at the end of the runway at Richard Downing Airport, Askren came the closest before the target “closed” at 9 a.m. The balloon “Bohica” was sponsored by State Farm Insurance – Doug Marmie. Marmie rode along on the challenging Saturday morning flight. Most of the twenty balloons participating took part in the flight. The next scheduled launch of the balloons will be from the fairgrounds at approximately 6 p.m. on Saturday evening, June 8. (Beacon photo by Mark Fortune)

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.
