For the women, Marlilyn Luyster came in at 23:46 for first place, with Shawne Arbaugh and Alex Williamson taking second and third place respectively. Some of the prizes the American Cancer Society donated included, t-shirts, ink pens, key chains and coffee mugs. Janice Williamson, president of the cheerleader’s club was impressed with the first-time results. “We raised $2,200,” Williamson said. “For our first time, I think we did quite well.” The arrangement made is that half the money will be donated to the ACS and the other half to the cheerleaders club.

Boss Bison Ranch holds fundraiser

Boss Bison Ranch holds fundraiser

By JD LONG New-Herald Staff Writer CADIZ – If you missed the calling of the drums at the Boss Bison Ranch, then you missed a lot. The ranch just off of Unionvale Road, held a non-profit festival for the Tri-county community action organization, Harcatus, to aid and benefit the organization’s efforts in helping the communities of Harrison, Tuscarawas and Carroll counties. The farm, owned and run by John and Karen Sticht, were thrilled with the results for the two-day event. Karen estimated the crowd to be around 500 for the weekend where they accumulated eight large boxes of canned goods from donations and raised approximately $300 to help Harcatus buy meat. “Basically, it was a good weekend,” Karen said. “It was different, people just enjoyed it.” When they woke Saturday, John noticed that a new calf was born bringing their total to 19. “Nature blessed us with another calf,” Karen said.

Custer and Lincoln live again in New Rumley

Custer and Lincoln live again in New Rumley

By JD LONG News-Herald Staff Writer NEW RUMLEY – On a glorious crystal blue day flanked by “General Custer” and “President Lincoln,” Leroy VanHorne, secretary of The Custer Memorial Association (CMA), opened Saturday’s festivities with a thought: He stressed the sadness of men who don’t come home from war, or the ones who do who are not revered “like they should be.” Joining the service in 1966, VanHorne was sent to Fort Knox, Kentucky only to be sent home 10 days later for failing his physical. “Some of my friends who went that day never made it home. It gives you a different feeling in life.” VanHorne reminded the enthusiastic crowd of not only the people who have made the history books, “but those around us who have gone and fought and served our country. Because without that we wouldn’t have the freedoms we have.” General Custer, who was accused of being a braggart by some historians, was portrayed by Rick Williams, who tossed one for the crowd by saying, “I’ll try to keep my self esteem reigned in.” Williams, a certified artillerist, has portrayed General Custer for eight years. He called it a “loaded question” when asked what it was like to portray the man. “It’s a wonderful feeling to portray a significant character in military history.” The theme of this year’s event was “1864 – Generalship: The Art of Command” and dealt with General Custer’s role in the last year of the Civil War. You can read more about Custer and Lincoln’s visit in the next edition of the News-Herald
