Super Bowl Pizza Party

All any Super Bowl party needs is a television, chips and dip and pizza, right? Well, don’t start Kaepernicking in victory quite yet.

Eye-catching decor, a unique menu, custom entertainment, wearable favors and fun invitations can make your party stand out from the standard last NFL season hurrah.

According to the USDA, the Super Bowl is the second-largest food consumption holiday of the year behind Thanksgiving and ahead of Christmas Day.

 

 

Super Bowl Pizza Party

Super Bowl Sunday belongs to pizza!

Oh sure, give the subs a nod, but every statistic proves that the Super Bowl is synonymous with pizza.Pizza in Johnstown ohio

However, game day pizza parties present challenges to your typical pizza party routine, where pizza is the focus. Namely, you need to be able to actually watch that game! You can’t very well do that when you’re manning the oven or working in the kitchen. So call in before the action gets started and put your pizza eating game face on.

154th Hartford Fair

The Hartford Fair was organized in the fall of 1858 under the name “The Hartford Fair Society”. The first fair was held in 1858 on land leased by Taber Sharp. The only townships represented at that time were Hartford and Monroe in Licking County and Hilliar in Knox County and Trenton in Delaware County. By 1871 there were ten townships represented, with the annexation of Milford Township in Knox Co; Harlem & Berkshire townships in Delaware; and Liberty, Bennington and Burlington townships in Licking County. St. Albans and Jersey were added from Licking County in 1908 as well as Miller in Knox Co. and Porter from Delaware Co.

This made a total of fourteen townships represented with a director elected from each with the exception of Hartford Twp. which had two directors. This fifteen-member fair board continued until 1970 when five directors were added At-Large from the remaining townships in Licking County, not already represented, making the total number of directors twenty. Ten years later, in 1980, two more At-Large directors were appointed along with one more each from Hartford and Monroe Townships. The list of directors totaled twenty-four. In 2012, three additional directors were added to the Board making the total 27″.

Agriculture has been stressed through the years along with the promotion of 4-H and youth activities. The Licking County Junior Fair was added to the program in 1938. From that time the majority of the growth of this fair has been with youth organizations and centered around their activities. We are proud of having one of the largest Junior Fair programs in the State. The 4-H Clubs are increasing to include the urban as well as the farm youth. In 1948 Licking County had the first 4-H Band. It was organized by Lenora McLeish and is housed on the grounds the entire week performing at various events each day.

Agricultural products were intended to please the older generation. Farm machinery displays have been a large part of the fair. The local machinery dealers are still displaying their equipment to showcase new technology.

Shade trees have been one of the trademarks of our fairgrounds. Back in 1895 there are records where the board had planted an abundance of trees. Of course, the shade was needed when the only transportation was the horse and buggy. The board has done an excellent job of keeping the trees replaced when they are damaged or die.

These times were difficult and money was scarce when the fair was being organized. The Civil War took place during these early years. There were no buildings erected until 1868. The top priority seemed to be for an “eating house”! They served meals for 25¢. In 1883 the first amphitheater was built. The specifications state that it was to seat five hundred people. The builder was given the use and profit of the amphitheater for five years instead of paying him to erect the structure. The next building was a sheep barn built in 1901. The buildings have come and gone over the years and now the grounds have over 40 buildings. The land that displays the annual event has grown from the original 25 acres to 183 acres.

Johnstown’s Colvin keeps her cool in taking fifth in high jump at D-II state

Johnstown’s Kendall Colvin competes in the high jump during the Division II state meet Friday at Ohio State’s Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus.

COLUMBUS — Cool temperatures and a steady rain during much of Friday appeared to be a bad recipe for Johnstown’s Kendall Colvin.

The junior, who often calls her mind-set her biggest hurdle, persevered during her first trip to the Division II state meet. She overcame what at times were treacherous conditions to tie for fifth in the high jump at Ohio State’s Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.

“I had to adjust according to the weather. I just had to be prepared,” Colvin said. “It was all in my head. I had to keep my head straight and not let nerves take over.”

Colvin cleared 5-feet-2, tying with two others, and she finished behind two others on misses. Only two cleared 5-4.

Most of the field, including Colvin, cleared 4-10 and 5-0 without incident. The rain started at 5-2, and Colvin cleared it on her third attempt. Only eight cleared 5-2, guaranteeing Colvin a medal.

“We had a lot of talks about making sure her head was in the game, making sure she was relaxed, taking deep breaths,” Johnstown coach Brad Orr said. “I told her, ‘Let me be nervous. You just go compete.'”

Woods letter / Civil War

Saturday, July 23, 1864

Dear friend Munson, it has been a long time since I had heard from you before, but I am glad to hear from you and to hear that you was well. It found me enjoying a very good health. We are putting the shell into the Rebs this morning and now and then they give us one but we have got used to that. We don’t care no more for them than we do for a lot of little boys, they do the wildest throwing shells that I ever saw, they will get them too high or too low shells too. You wrote in your last letter that you was a shooting squirrels and you said you supposed I was shooting Rebs, you are right on that for we made a charge and then halted and laid in line of battle all day and they throw shells at us all day but didn’t do much harm. I was laying behind a pile of rails and I looked way out in a big field that I was behind in the words and I saw the weeds and brush a moving along and they got closer all the time.   (READ MORE)
