Soup’s on

| August 17, 2015

DSC_0009NEW CASTLE – The smell of soup beans being cooked over an open fire in iron kettles drifted through the air Sunday, Aug. 16, at McElwee Park in New Castle. The soup is a highlight of the annual Grand Army of the Republic Bean Dinner, which has now taken place for 148 years. Another highlight, however, for the volunteers who help make the soup is socializing with those who come for the food and entertainment. “I’ve been helping do this for a long time now,” said Ed Moran. “I liked visiting with all the people you see from year to year.” Pictured from left are Moran and Bryan Johnson, who also volunteers at the dinner.

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!
