Fire damages NM service house ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. Everyone is safe.
All of the participants were at work when the fire ignited, sometime between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. A neighbor called the fire department upon seeing the flames. “Everything will need to be pitched or cleaned up,” said Carolyn Snyder, the Service Adventure support committee chair and a member at Albuquerque Mennonite Church. On the cold, rainy day after the fire, the participants stayed away from work, waiting to get into the house to retrieve what they could. Sitting in the same clothes from the day before, they ate sandwiches, salad and Oreo cookies donated by church members.

Service Adventure gives young adults ages 17-20 the opportunity to live and serve in community with other young adults and a mentor or mentor couple. Albuquerque participants are Melanie Pilz, 19, from Rangsdorf, Germany; Erin Regier, 18, from Newton, Kan.; Hannah Martin, 18, from Greencastle, Pa.; and Michelle Peachey, 18, from Lancaster, Pa.

Lincoln Beachey

Amory shook up history in Tampa
Thousands of people pass by the Fort Homer Hesterly Armory every day. However, few have any idea of the history that resides within the walls of the building that sits unoccupied and largely unnoticed along Howard Avenue in West Tampa. The Armory sits atop a site that is historic in and of itself. During the summer of 1898, Theodore Roosevelt's Rough Riders used the open land as their campsite in the days leading up to the Spanish-American War.

The space later came to be known as Benjamin Field, named for George Benjamin, one of the founders of West Tampa. Benjamin donated the land to the city of West Tampa in 1896 for use as a park. In the early 1910s, Benjamin Field became an airfield. Aviation was still in its infancy, and pioneering pilots like LINCOLN BEACHEY participated in several air meets at the field — and accomplished one of the first night flights in aviation history at that site.

Call to develop, promote high nutrient crops
Dr Roger N Beachy talked about a 'better planet with better food'.
He stressed the need to reduce the trend of increasing fertilisers in the country.
He called for conserving water as global warming has started playing havoc and water is shrinking
Most of the food and crop strategies over the past years focused on yield and protection of crops but very little has been really done on breeds for high nutrition crops across the globe having two billion nutrition-deficient children. Keeping this in view, we have to develop and promote high nutrient crops breeds to cope with food crises. Click for article in Business Recorder December 09, 2011.

Brandon Beachy Atlanta Braves

ATLANTA -- Brandon Beachy seems genuinely appreciative of the many individuals who have aided him during a journey that became more improbable as he spent this year enjoying a record-setting rookie season with the Braves. Two years ago, Beachy was a relatively unknown Minor League pitcher who had just completed his first full professional season. One summer earlier, he had seen his life's path significantly altered when the Braves signed him out of a relatively obscure collegiate summer league staged in rural Virginia. And it's been just four years since Beachy was attempting to celebrate Thanksgiving while dealing with the fact that he was still just a few months removed from that horrific day when his ill-fated attempt to prank his siblings led to a fire that destroyed his parents' home. "To be where I'm sitting now, I have a lot to give thanks for," Beachy said. "There is a lot of good that has come out of that experience. It's just one more experience in my life that shows how blessed I've truly been. "It reminds me to not take anything for granted because it can be taken away so quickly."

Kevin Beachy Coach of the Year

MILLERSBURG OH -- Like any good coach does, West Holmes cross country coach Kevin Beachy deflected all the credit for the girls team's success this season back toward his runners. In all four years that Beachy has been at the helm, though, the Knights have made it to regionals -- it's hard to believe this is just a coincidence. Beachy, who is this year's Daily Record Girls Cross Country Coach of the Year, engineered yet another fine season in Millersburg, leading the Knights to a fourth-place finish in the Ohio Cardinal Conference, a second-place finish at the Wayne-Holmes Invitational and a third-place finish at the Cambridge District to earn their fourth straight trip to regionals.

Tiffany Beachy Citizen Scientist Coordinator

Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont. Located approximately 130 miles from Chattanooga in the historic Walker Valley section of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, just outside of Townsend, Tenn.
“Our citizen science projects allow volunteers and students to become scientists for a day,” says TIFFANY BEACHY, citizen scientist coordinator at Tremont. “Many people feel like science is unapproachable, but these programs make it more tangible and help them feel like they are taking part in something bigger than themselves.”
Beachy says Monarch butterfly tagging, birding banding, and pond breeding amphibian monitoring programs are most conducive for groups. The terrestrial and aquatic salamander monitoring programs are reserved for school groups in order to prevent too much disturbance to ecosystems.

Kathy Beachy State Park Ranger

Sleeper State (MI) Park Ranger Kathy Beachy checks the age of the buck shot on Tuesday Nov. 15,
Beachy said 32 deer filtered their way through the check station on Tuesday, the opening day of regular firearm season, and about a dozen on Wednesday morning. She said checking heads at the station is voluntary for hunters. Most of the time, Beachy said, the age of the deer is recorded and a collectible patch is given out. The agents check a deer’s age by slicing open a side of the animal’s cheek, necessary after rigor mortis. They search for any telltale teeth — like tricuspids, which set in after a year and a half — and teeth wear. Click for article by Michael Mayday Bay City Times Thursday, November 17, 2011.

Laban Peachey College President 1968-1980

Former Hesston College President Laban Peachey (1968-80) and President Howard Keim pose with the Hesston College airplane named in honor of President Peachey during Homecoming Weekend 2011. Peachey was President when the aviation program was launched in 1970 and was a major advocate of the program from its inception. But the plan for aviation seemed unprecedented. How could a small Christian college support an Aviation program? “We had no planes and no facilities; just a lot of interest and enthusiastic students,” said Peachey. During its first year of existence, the program leased an airplane from the Moundridge (Kan.) Flying Club, used the McPherson (Kan.) airport as its base and offered two courses – one ground training course and one flight training course. Director of Aviation Dan Miller, a 1978 graduate of Hesston’s program and Director since 1999, said fall 2011 enrollment boasts 45 students in the aviation program, including 12 studying Air Traffic Control, which was introduced at Hesston in 2009 and in 2010 became one of 36 colleges across the country and the only Kansas college to gain FAA approval.

It's a half-hour boat ride from Homer, but it's a world away in many other respects. I'm talking about Halibut Cove, an idyllic little place just across Kachemak Bay.
In good weather the crossing can be like glass, according to our captain SAM BEACHY -- who ferried us in a landing craft that looks like it could have withstood the rigors of D-Day and the beaches of Normandy.
As we approached the wild south end of the Kenai Peninsula, the seas became calm as if we'd entered a church building. The jungled walls of the cove dampened the sound of wind and waves, and the water stilled like a puddle after a rainstorm.
We docked near a small gray house on stilts, served by a long walkway from the double boathouse down on the water, and unloaded our three days of supplies before saying goodbye to Captain Beachy Click for all of the article and more great photos By Tim Akimoff Channel 2 News August 17, 2011.

(Washington, D.C.)

Jay Peachey Bull Rider

According to Jay Peachey of Belleville PA, a bull rider competing in the Memorial Day Rodeo at Wellsville Frontier Days club grounds on Monday, it all comes down to eight seconds. That's the amount of time that a bull rider must stay on the animal in order to get a score. Judges assign scores to the riders based not on the amount of time they stay mounted, but according to how much control they assert and how much the bull bucks. Peachey, of Belleville, spends his weekdays pouring concrete foundations for a living. But on weekends, Peachey spends his time traveling to any rodeos he can get to in the region. Peachey would be hard-pressed to say why exactly he wanted to get into bull riding in the first place. But wherever the urge came from, it led him to a school in Texas where he learned the skill. "It's a little scary at first, but the adrenaline rush takes a lot of the fear away," Peachey said. Cick for article By Tom Joyce Daily Record/Sunday News 05/30/2011 Picture credit,

Jim Beechy Councilman

MILLERSBURG OH. -- It's official. The James Crissey Memorial Swimming Pool will be closed for the 2011 season because of severe damage in the pool's floor caused by high water. The pool bed was poured in 1929, which makes village officials feel they got their money's worth without having to perform major structural repairs for more than 80 years. Now that the concrete is exposed, it is obvious several flaws existed from the first pour.
"I had three people come up to me today and say 'I hope you're not closing the pool' and that has an impact," said Councilman Jim Beechy. "Unfortunately it won't be available this year." Click for article by Jeff Canning, Staff Writer June 3, 2011

Christopher Beachey 11, First Turkey Hunt

Dover, Del. I did get one of my favorite hunting stories from one of our young Amish neighbors last week. It seems that Chris Beachey of Hartly took his 11-year-old nephew Christopher Beachey out on his first turkey hunt. It was a good morning obviously as the birds responded well to the call. A short time after sunrise Christopher was retrieving his 15-pound jake that sported a 5 ½- inch beard. Congratulations.

Dave Beachy Sugarcreek OH

Thanks to Lavon Daughtery and Dave Beachy, Sugarcreek can boast its own horse-drawn trolley.
The saga of the trolley goes back several years, when Daugherty and Beachy made a trip to Mount Hope to look at carriages that were going to be soldthe the next day at the Mt. Hope Auction.
“I liked this one because it was low and loaded from the right side,” said Daugherty, owner of Collectors Decanters and Steins, a store in Sugarcreek. “I couldn’t attend the sale so I told Dave if it sold for under $2,000 I would purchase it.” Daugherty said his interest in the trolley was to promote tourism in Sugarcreek. Luck was on his side.
When Beachy, owner of Beachy’s Country Chalet restaurant in Sugarcreek, got to the sale, the trolley was being taken out of the sale ring. When he learned it had not sold, Beachy offered the owner $1,750 the trolley, and the offer was accepted.
“We brought the trolley to Sugarcreek, painted it, put carpet on the floor and added advertisers signs,” Daugherty said. Two two red Belgian horses are lesed from Leroy Stutzman to pull the trolley. Stutzman, Paul Miller and Abe Troyer are the drivers. Click here for the article By Barb Limbacher staff writer. Posted May 13, 2011 @ 09:30 AM

awaited story of the Amish is ready for your customers. Unser Leit is unique in a number of ways. Presenting the past in gifted story telling fashion makes it appealing, not only to the dedicated historian, but also to the casual reader

It's just great,” said Streaks senior Tai Peachey, who scored the game's second goal and had an assist on the first. “We're really blessed to have it.” A steady drizzle fell during the dedication ceremony but fizzled out in time for the inaugural kickoff. Sun splashed onto the field for much of the game before the lights began to take effect.
“It’s not really soccer without rain, at least this season,” Peachey said. “They turned on the lights and the sun came out. It was pretty bizzare, but it turned out to be a great night.” Click for the rest of the story by Aaron Frey The Register-Mail posted may 05, 2011 @ 11:46 PM
