Ten years ago
Here is a brief look at what was happening around the Cumberland ten years ago in October of 2001.
At the October 2001 Cumberland Village Council meeting, Mayor Abrams reported that she was trying to get a cell phone tower located in the Cumberland area, but though some companies seemed interested, none would commit. The village was also requesting new highway signs from the Ohio Department of Transportation for the intersection of Main and Cambridge streets where a semi coming through the village didnt quite make the turn.
At the October 2010 Cumberland-Spencer Homemakers meeting, those present heard a lesson about Tai Chi and they discussed their favorite variety of apple for roll call. Later in the month, the Claysville Home makers also learned about Tai Chi and they discussed their childhood memories of Halloween for roll call.
On Oct. 13, 2010, Pleasant City OES 227, merged with Guernsey OES 211. This made the Guernsey chapter the last Ohio Eastern Star chapter in Guernsey County.
In October 2010, Spencer Township had just made repairs to the dump truck. The trustees had also received a request about widening Iowa Road around the area of a proposed bridge replacement.
In October 2010, there were a least four separate auto wrecks along Route 146 between Route 672 and the Cumberland sign.
The Cumberland United Methodist Women had its annual Friendship night Oct. 28, 2001. Special music was provided by The Noblemen, Denny Taylor, the CUMC Choir, the Rev. Keith Taylor, Robert Norris and Rebecca Baughman.
Also on Oct. 28, 2001, the Rix Mills Presbyterian Church hosted a soup and sandwich supper. After the supper, Dr. Rick Nutt from Muskingum College talked about his trip to Brazil.
Ten years ago, Cambridge, was mentioned on the nationally syndicated countdown show hosted by Casey Kasem. He used the Polka Punishment case as one of his transitions between songs.
