The students are a traditional part of Warsaw’s candlelighting ceremony, which was held on Nov. 29. The Warsaw Business Association, the Warsaw Lions Club, the River View Ministerial Association, the Walhonding Valley Fire Department, EMS and the sheriff’s department work together to make the annual event happen. This year’s honorary candlelighter was Ronnie Lawrence and the speaker was Rev. Ron Davis. “We need to remember that the real reason for the season is to celebrate a light coming into this world named Jesus,” Davis said. He reminded attendees that they represent the light of Jesus and should let it shine brightly, not just at Christmas, but all year long. Lawrence helped get the candles, donated by Canal Cargo, lit while “Silent Night” was sung and then children were invited to visit with Santa Claus.

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!
