Joe Beachy of Finger also raises cattle and was good friends with Isbell. Beachy said he had spoken to Isbell several days earlier, warning him to be careful around the bull. "I told him when he got ready to separate the calves, to call me because he shouldn't be doing it himself," Beachy said. "But he (Isbell) said it would be fine if he kept a stick with him." Beachy said the bull had come up to the fence on several occasions when he was in an adjacent field, bellowing and pawing the ground."He was mean, and I didn't trust him," Beachy said. Isbell worked many years as a tie buyer for Koppers Inc., a Mississippi-based lumber company, Beachy said. Click to read the complete article by Mariann Martin in the Jackson Sun-Jackson, TN, USA

The village of Port Clements has awarded the job of salvaging the former village office building to C & C Beachy, after reviewing five bids. The village doesn't need the old building now that it has moved into the brand new multi-purpose complex across the street. The area where the old building now stands will be used for parking once the building has been removed.

The Walleyes are very predictable in their spawning
habits and will run almost by the calendar dates year after year.
Mike has developed a technique and jig that is a great minnow look
alike. When the Walleyes come upstream from Lake Erie, Mike is there
using his fishing skills.If the Indiana weather drops below 27 - 28 degrees
Mike can't fish as the eyes on the rod freeze up. Many times he is
the only fisherman at night because of the weather conditions and the
difficulty to fish the river. The walleye is a form of a Pike and part
of the perch family. Excellent eating fish and ranks at the top of
fresh water fish for the table.

Personally written genealogical data is often lost. Families don't know what to do with the stuff, and often doesn't realize its value.
There are very few people who take on Genealogy as an early hobby - My granddaughter, and some who are involved in SAGA/OMII are exceptions. Every few years my granddaughter makes up a book, gets it copied, and gives it out to family members. Given the ease of digital photography, any one with a 5 megapixel camera or above, clicking it on close up, and then photographing what you want will create a .jpg file and you can send them to whom ever. I'd make sure that there is one page about the author, if only the name of the author, life dates, reason for distributing this. Include the date, places to which you have sent your data. It is the responsibility of the genealogist to cite one's data.

BEN BEACHY, the Mid-Atlantic Coordinator for Witness for Peace, discussed the military and human rights problems of narcotics in Latin America, problems created by US demand and made worse by the US’s concentration on a military “supply side “drug war” in Latin America. The “Merida Initiative,” signed by Bush and Calderon in March 2007, a component of the NAFTA countries’ “Security and Prosperity Partnership” (SPP), is giving billions of dollars to Mexico and Central America militaries and police to fight drug production and trafficking rather than addressing demand in the United States.

Physical therapist Ruth Beachey works with Ray several times a week, teaching him to stand on his own and catch himself when he falls. She says while stroke victims may be at an increased risk for a tumble here and there..seniors in general, have a host of risk factors.
"It`s been shown that people who take more than four prescription medications are 20 to 30 percent more at risk for falling and if you think about it, many elderly patients are on at least four prescription medications, if not more," Beachey says. She says a hazardous home environment will increase the odds of older adults falling. She suggests installing hand rails, getting rid of throw rugs, and putting night lights in the home. And, she stresses, no one is too young for a walker. They not only give you the freedom of mobility, but also can prevent a fall. Click for more by Anne Kelly KFYR-TV - Bismarck,ND,USA 2/12/2009

Here is a letter I recieved form Airline Pilot Gordon Beachy that I want to share with you. Gordon has been flying for many years and shares his thoughts about emergency landings. Enjoy, Glen editor of this site.
How would any of us handle an emergency? A house fire, an auto accident, a heart attack, a choking (heimlich manuever), etc. We never really know until we are tested. I just hope to never be tested in such a way. I can say that my first instinct is self-preservation. And if I'm successful in that, chances are that all those behind me in that aluminum tube will be preserved as well.
(In reference to the recent emergency landing in the Hudson River) As far as I know, this is the first example of a successfull ditching. Ditchings are VERY rare and the few that occur tend to be tragedies. In training we are shown DRAWINGS of how they think the aircraft will look floating in the water after a ditching, but there's never been a successful example to take pictures of, it's always been drawings that we were shown. I guess now we will have a picture for training.
We hit birds now and then, but it's typically no big deal. For a bird to take out an engine is very rare. For both engines to be taken out is almost unthinkable! Thankfully this occured in daylight, on a clear day, in a location that had immediate rescue response. The conditions were right for the "miracle" to unfold.
As soldiers might say, "Pray to God, but pass the ammunition." There's an element of fortune (Providence) in these events, but there's also the pilot making the best decision available to him in light of the few options present. We do our part and hope (pray) for the best.
Thankfully all survived this event. I hope to never encounter similar circumstances. If I do, you can bet I'll do all I can to live to fly another day. In doing so, my crew and passengers will have the same chance as I.

Roger N. Beachy, Ph.D., WUSTL professor of biology in Arts & Sciences and president of the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, and Danforth Center research scientist Shunhong Dai, Ph.D., demonstrated that transgenic rice plants that overexpress either of two rice proteins are tolerant to infection caused by the rice tungro bacilliform virus (RTVB), which is largely responsible for the symptoms associated with Rice Tungro disease.

Controversial logging to begin at Governor Dick
The sound of chain saws and heavy machinery will soon disturb the winter quiet in Clarence Schock Memorial Park at Governor Dick as loggers begin the controversial job of removing several thousand trees killed by repeated gypsy-moth defoliations. The logging will be done by O.A. PEACHEY & Sons of Myerstown, top bidder for the timber, said Chuck Allwein, a member of the park’s board of directors. Details on the bid, including the amount PEACHEY offered for the wood, will be released at the next board meeting on Feb. 19, he said.
