DSC_0027COSHOCTON – Soldiers from the 1485th Battalion of the Army National Guard Kilo Company “Commandos” who have been away at boot camp and those preparing to move on to advance training and their families were treated to a Christmas party. The celebration was held Dec. 14 at the National Guard Armory in Coshocton and included a traditional holiday meal for about 300 people. Many volunteers helped cook and serve the food including Tim Hess, general manager of the Coshocton Bob Evans and his staff that were off that weekend. “We wanted to give them a chance to get nice pictures together and a good hot meal,” said First Sergeant Justin Sprankle. “We just want them all to have a nice day together and leave with a smile on their faces.”

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!
