THE BEACON 3 JULY 11, 2018 Humane society receives grant for trap – neuter – return program COSHOCTON - Th e Coshocton County Humane Society (CCHS) was approved for a grant from the Co- shocton Foundation to begin a trap – neuter – return (TNR) program. Th e fi rst TNR project will provide services for 50 cats, 30 spays and 20 neuters. CCHS will need volunteers to make this program a success. Come to a seminar from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, July 14, at the Co- shocton Elks to learn how we can all help feral cats. TNR is the only humane and eff ective way to manage outdoor cat populations. Feral cats are humane- ly trapped, spayed or neutered, vac- cinated and then returned to their outdoor home. No more kittens are born, so the population stabilizes and decreases gradually and natu- rally over time. Plus the undesirable behaviors associated with breeding like scent marking, yowling and fi ghting stop. At this seminar you will learn: How and why TNR works, humane trapping techniques and using humane equipment, low cost, high volume, high level care spay/neuter, post-op recovery, return and on-go- ing management, tips for “hard-to- catch” cats, community relations and nuisance behavior remedies, Q&A, and networking. Presenter Toby Franks has been doing TNR for over a decade and has trapped, spayed, neutered and returned over 1,000 feral cats. He serves on the Board of Directors for Spay Neuter Ohio, is past clinic director at One of a Kind Pet S/N Clinic and is Co-Founder of Th e To- gether Initiative for Ohio’s Commu- nity Cats. Franks is the recipient of the Alley Cat Allies Hometown Hero Award 2013, the Humane Society of the United States Community Cat Hero Award 2013 and has been featured in Animal Sheltering Mag- azine.

Contributed | Beacon 50 years of River View volleyball being celebrated By Josie Sellers WARSAW – Cassidy Dulgar and Bella Heddle- son are using their senior project to celebrate 50 years of volleyball at River View High School. “When Coach Ames and Coach Olinger approached us with the idea we thought it seemed like a lot of work, but we know we can do it,” Dulgar said. Heddleson said they are looking forward to bringing everyone together who has been a part of the program. “Volleyball isn’t as appreciated as much as other sports, but it’s important to us,” she said. “I’ve been playing since I was in third grade and by the time I got to junior high I knew everybody because of volleyball.” Dulgar can remember going to Cub Camps and starting in sixth grade with a travel team. “Volleyball is family,” she said. Anyone who has been involved in high school volleyball at River View including previous coaches, players, statisticians, score- board keepers, line judges, and more are wel- come to attend the anniversary celebration on Saturday, Sept. 29. Th e ceremony will be held in the high school gym after the varsity game against West Holmes (JV starts at 11 a.m.). Attendees will be introduced and memo- rabilia will be on display to help people relive their high school careers. Dulgar and Heddle- son also are asking for people to share their memories when they register to attend the event. Th ose who are veterans will be given a special token and t-shirts are being made to mark the occasion. Donations will be accept- ed for the volleyball program. “Coach Olinger and Coach Ames are our mentors for the project and have given us ideas for how to celebrate and now we have to put them into play,” Dulgar said. Th e girls have already starting receiving res- ervation s for the celebration and are learning valuable lessons from planning the event. “We are learning how to organize and about communication,” Dulgar said. Heddleson agreed with her that communi- cation has been huge. “I honestly think this is really going to help prepare us for college,” she said. Reservations for the 50th anniversary cele- bration can be made by visiting the following link: or e-mailing 50thvolley- “Everyone who has ever been associated with volleyball at River View High School is welcome including avid fans and parents,” Dulgar said.
