Jacob Beachy Ohio

For Amish, life is changing, for Jacob Beachy life moves along much as it always has. Every day, there are the 35 cows that need tending, as well as 90 acres of farmland. His is the life of an Amish farmer, in which family, work, and faith intertwine on one plot of Ohio land. 
Yet across the street, on 60 acres that were once a farm, stands a sprawling new mansion, complete with a multidoor garage. A few years back, that land sold for $1.4 million.
“When we moved here in 1968, we thought we were in the sticks,” Mr. Beachy says, rocking in his living-room recliner. “All of this was working farms. It’s changed a lot.”
Indeed, for America’s Amish, much is changing. The Amish are, by one measure, the fastest-growing faith community in the US. Yet as their numbers grow, the land available to support the agrarian lifestyle that underpins their faith is shrinking, gobbled up by the encroachment of exurban mansions and their multidoor garages. 
According to the study, there are 456 settlements in the US and Canada – a number forecast to reach 1,000 by 2050. Likewise, the US Amish population – now at 251,000 –is estimated to grow to more than a million by 2050, the researchers add.
In the Amish heartland, these demographics are clashing with geography, as Beachy can attest. “Amish will have to spread out,” Beachy says. “That’s why you see settlements all over – they are looking for farmland. You can’t buy a farm anymore to farm.” Click for article By Staff writer / November 30, 2012 Christian Science Monitor

Beachy’s Country Chalet celebrates 25 years

It has been 25 years since Beachy’s Country Chalet Restaurant opened for business on a cloudy, overcast Labor Day of 1988.
In the 25 years since that “test run,” the restaurant has served more than 2,500,000 patrons.
Dave and Linda Beachy grew up in the Sugarcreek area. Dave was the 10th of 12 children and number six of seven boys in a row. That landed him in the kitchen helping his mother with the baking, cooking and household chores, including the cleaning.
“It was a perfect fit,” Beachy said. “Choosing the name Beachy’s Country Chalet Restaurant was based on our heritage. We used our last name, Beachy, to give it a certain amount of Amish flavor to resemble my upbringing and the Country Chalet to represent the Swiss flavor of Sugarcreek.”
Beachy said he believed his employees and the homestyle Amish and Swiss menu sets Beachy’s apart from larger restaurants in the area.
As part of the restaurant’s anniversary celebration, vendors who have supplied the restaurant the past 25 years have been honored each week of the month.
Drawings will be held Saturday for prizes being given away in recognition of 25 years of business.
“It’s been a pleasure, and without our local friends,” said Beachy, “our little restaurant would not have been able to celebrate 25 years.” Click for a great success story/article in the New Philadelphia Times Reporter. ataff report Posted Nov 26, 2012 @ 10:35 PM

Sarah Peachey Donegal High School president of the performing arts group.

Donegal High School's new auditorium seats 1,200 and, unlike the old one, is air-conditioned. Picture credit(Dan Marschka)
Sarah Peachey is undaunted by the prospect of performing in front of hundreds more people than she did last year.
"Once you have 700 people watching you, what's an extra 400?" the Donegal High School senior said, standing behind some half-painted scenery during a break in a recent play rehearsal.In fact, as many as 1,200 audience members could attend each performance next weekend to watch Peachey and her fellow cast members perform the vintage comedy "You Can't Take It With You," the first show presented on the stage of the high school's brand-new auditorium.

The performance space, which opened in August along with most of the rest of Donegal's new $38 million high school building in Mount Joy (the gym is still getting its finishing touches) still has that new-auditorium smell.
Its 1,200 seats, upholstered in a muted shade of green that manages to give off a golden glow under the house lights, take up plenty of real estate. They do so beneath a grid of light-brown acoustic panels suspended in space near the ceiling.
The new auditorium will be home not only to the fall play and spring musical, but to choir and band concerts and various programs and assemblies that can now accommodate the whole student body.
"The first time I walked in here, it took my breath away," said Moriah Newman, an English teacher and production manager for the school's Donegal Performing Arts organization. "And it's hard to say that about a high school auditorium."
Only now, there will be a lot more seats from which to watch.
"You Can't Take It With You" will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18. Tickets cost $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors, and are available at the door one hour before showtime. A free dress-rehearsal performance for senior citizens begins at 2 p.m. Thursday.

Hannah Beachy Colorado Springs CO
When Hannah Beachy decided to pursue a master's degree in Oriental medicine and career in Acupuncture  she just knew she would love it. It wasn't until she was about to graduate from Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder with close to $100,000 in debt that she realized she would have to come up with a good business plan if she was going to make her dream work. "Most people coming out of school and starting practices are geared toward the higher end," she said, "But I thought, how am I going to market a service I don't even think I could afford myself?" That's how Beachy came to establish the fast-growing Springs Community Acupuncture on the Westside. It's a volume business that focuses on making treatment affordable by offering acupuncture in a group setting.

Beachy Amish

MACON COUNTY, Ga. — In 1953, when military bases were expanding and land prices rising near Norfolk, Va., members of a growing population of Beachy Amish there began to shop around. “Carloads of men would go out and look,” said Crist Yoder, who was 1 year old at the time but heard the story from his father, Crist Yoder Sr.   They traveled the South, stopping in South Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee. But the price was right in Montezuma, Ga.                                               So in 1954, 11 families uprooted. They were mostly Yoders. Crist Yoder Sr. and his four older brothers and their families, along with Weavers, Kauffmans and Swartzentrubers, started a dairy farming community just outside Montezuma. “If you weren’t a Yoder, you married into the Yoders,” Yoder said. “Everyone was related.”                                                            

Amish groups — both the Old Order and the progressives, like the Beachy Amish and Amish Mennonites — have been moving to new states and communities throughout the 20th century and into the 21st. But today it is likely to be for a reason other than land prices. “It is possible that there’s more of that happening simply because the [Amish] population is larger,” said Donald Kraybill, who researches Amish life at Elizabethtown (Pa.) College. “It’s doubling every 20 years"  Today the Amish Mennonite community near Montezuma includes around 350 members, 150 or so families.

 Beachy Amish roots go back to the 1920s. Today they have about 7,500 members and 97 congregations in 20 states.                 “They tend to be more independent in the sense that they aren’t connected to a larger group,” Kraybill said. Amish Mennonites have regional conferences; Beachy Amish don’t. Click to read the article By Kelli Yoder, Mennonite World Review October 29, 2012.

Laura Beachy Somerset Co. Flight 93

A local filmmaker’s documentary about the impact of the crash of Flight 93 was successfully funded this weekend.
Dingman Township native, 23-year-old Ryan Balton, is co-producing the film “We Were Quiet Once.” The feature-length documentary shows how the crash of Flight 93 on Sept. 11, 2001 affected the people of Somerset County who witnessed it from the ground.
Laura Beachy, the film’s executive producer, grew up in Somerset and was in sixth grade several miles from the field where the plane went down in 2001.
The film’s fundraising campaign on raised $6,682 from 121 backers. Kickstarter is a crowd-sourced funding platform for creative projects, with an all or nothing approach. The goal was to raise $6,000 in 45 days, a goal which was exceeded by 11 percent on Saturday night.
“We’re so thankful to have such a supportive community behind us,” Balton said. “The contributions from my friends and neighbors in and around Pike County will allow us to take this film and share it on a much bigger stage.”
During the Kickstarter campaign, the project also received donations totaling over $2,085 in the mail. Many of the donors have been from northeast Pennsylvania, and involving the local community is something important to Balton. Donors will be thanked in the credits of the film, and will receive advance copies once the film is complete.
The money will pay for editing, finishing and distribution. This includes entering the film in festivals and holding screening events in northeast Pennsylvania, such as the recently passed Black Bear Film Festival, which has featured Balton and Beachy’s work before.

Bonnie Beachy Cypress Texas

The older you get, the more meaningful the little things in life tend to become.
For Bonnie Beachy, both Struthers High’s and Kent State University’s all-time scoring leader, visiting her respective alma maters this weekend and spending time reconnecting with old teammates, friends and teachers has taken on added importance.
Diagnosed with late stage cervical cancer six years ago and in remission until six months ago, she is battling the disease for a second time with an intensity and fight that translated into 1,448 career points in high school and another 2,071 collegiately.
“When I was first diagnosed six years ago, I became a very private person and just didn’t want anyone to know what I was going through,” Beachy said. “Back then, the survival rate was five years and I beat the odds. My doctors were even surprised.
“I am currently going through chemotherapy and while the cancer is not in remission yet, doctors expect that to happen by December.”
Beachy’s cancer is rare — it is diagnosed in approximately 20,000 people in the United States each year.
“My cancer was due to a gene defect that I never knew I had. I have five brothers and sisters and it can be passed down, so early detection is the key,” Beachy added.
“This particular gene defect causes ovarian cancer in about 45 percent of the people and breast cancer in nearly 70 percent. When I was first diagnosed and saw those numbers, I had a double mastectomy as well,” she said.
Beachy, who lives in Cypress, Texas, where she is an assistant principal, remains optimistic and said there was an upside to the diagnosis. Click for the article By Greg Gulas Friday, October 19. 2012 Youngstown Vindicator

Carol Beachy West Jefferson

While the leaves on the trees have just started to change colors and fall, plans are underway for the 2012 West Jefferson Christmas in the Park celebration.
This year, local business person Carol Beachy has stepped up to fill the void left by West Jefferson Community Association president Jeff Pfeil, who retired from the leadership position for the holiday festival. Pfeil had been a one-man crew testing and hanging the 300,000 holiday lights that decorate Garrette Park for the last 15 years.
Beachy said that things are moving along smoothly and added there are some new things being added to this year’s event.
“I have a lot of people coming out to hang lights and decorate,” Beachy said. “We are at Garrette Park every Saturday morning starting at 10 a.m. testing lights. If people want to help, they can just show up and we will put them to work. We can also use volunteers to help with the food during the event.”
While Pfeil is no longer heading up the holiday festival, he is still advising Beachy and her crew.
“Jeff had this down to a science,” Beachy said.
“He is doing a lot of advising and training. He may have retired, but he did not walk away.”
This year, Christmas in the Park will be held Friday, Dec. 7, through Sunday, Dec. 9, with opening ceremonies on Dec. 7 with the West Jefferson American Legion raising the American flag and Santa Claus arriving to throw the switch to light the park.
For more information about West Jefferson Christmas in the Park or to financially donate to assist the festival, you can contact Carol Beachy at West Jefferson Hardware at (614) 879-9036.

Jon Beachy Fontana Mayor

The possibility of the elementary school closing in Fontana is creating friction and causing emotions to run high between the USD 362 Board of Education and area residents.
A public hearing is scheduled for 7 p.m. Nov. 7 at Fontana elementary to determine whether the elementary school should remain open or whether it should close permanently. 
“Unfortunately,” Fontana Mayor Jon Beachy said, “what we have is a school board that is bound and determined – even though the public had an overwhelming vote of ‘no’ about closing the Fontana school – to choose to go against the public opinion and close the school here in Fontana. 
“It’s kind of put us all in a bind to the point where we’re kind of at our wit’s end as to what to do,” he said, adding that he believes Fontana is not being represented in the school board.
“Addressing the closing of Fontana isn’t only about Fontana,” Superintendent Chris Kleidosty said. “It’s also about the rest of the school district.” Click for article By Charity Keitel Posted Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Jonas Beachey Pickaway County, Ohio

TARLTON, Ohio -- A Pickaway County Amish man is getting some help from his friends while trying to get his dogs back. The Ohio SPCA said Jonas Beachy was running a puppy mill and confiscated 52 dogs from his farm on October 1.  
The animal rights group went to the farm with Pickaway County Sheriff's Deputies, and were armed with a warrant.
Beachey told ABC 6/FOX 28 he never was shown the warrant, and he was overwhelmed when the army of deputies, dog wardens, and volunteers showed up to his 52 acre farm.

Ray Spence said he has known Beachey for 10 years, and has never seen him mistreat his animals.  Spence and Beachey talked with County Commissioners this week about trying to have the dogs and puppies returned to the farm. Beachy said he is especially upset because the volunteers took his companion dog, Speckles.  "He is a wonderful dog.  He goes with us in the buggy to visit the neighbors.  Speckles would be happiest here on the farm.  He is special to us."

Mickey and Logan Beechy Newton Falls

NEWTON FALLS - Mickey Beechy knew he was in trouble after he saw the final scorecard.
His son, Logan, then 11 years old, was 16 strokes better than his father during a nine-hole round.
Logan, a Newton Falls High School senior, started playing golf only a year or two earlier.
"I've been playing my entire life and he started beating me with ease when he was 11," Mickey said. "I thought I had a few more years. I thought we would be playing and I would be kind of close together score-wise for year or two, but that wasn't the case.

Mickey, who has owned Duck Creek for 11 years, saw his son play many rounds over the years, but none as important as this weekend. Logan tees off Friday morning in the Division II state tournament at Ohio State University's Scarlet Course in Columbus.
Mickey can see a lot of his father, Myron, in Logan with every swing of a club. Logan has Myron's luck as well. Logan has three holes-in-one during his young career. Click for a great article By John Vargo, Tribune Chonicle.

Logan Beechy Newton Falls

Logan Beechy has spent four years in pursuit of a goal.
In three previous tries, the senior from Newton Falls came up short.
But on Tuesday at Windmill Lakes Golf Club, Beechy came through in the biggest event of his high school career. He fired a 3-over par 73 in the Division II boys district golf tournament and qualified for the state tournament Oct. 12-13 at The Ohio State University Scarlet Golf Course.
“It’s my senior year, so I definitely wanted to go to state,” said Beechy, who finished second to Canton Central Catholic’s Adam Mallette (72) . “I’ve been wanting to ever since I was a freshman, but had some problems.”
Beechy’s accuracy off the tee, admittedly not always precise, was crucial as Windmill Lakes was soaked with morning rain.
“A lot of times I can’t get myself in play, in order to proceed, and today I hit almost every fairway,” Beechy said. “Then I progressed and put it on the green, just two-putted and made my way around the course.”
The rain made conditions difficult early in the morning, but Beechy scrambled his way to a strong start to the round.
“The first two I got away with pars on,” he said. “That got me going because I was struggling. That opened the door for me.” Click for article by Ryan Buck, Wednesday, October 3, 2012

Laura Beachy, Flim on 9/11

PITTSBURGH — Laura Beachy's sixth-grade teacher at Eagle View Elementary was supposed to turn off the television on Sept. 11, 2001, to keep the children from panicking after terrorist attacks in New York, Washington and just 15 miles from their school in Somerset.
Despite the district's orders, the teacher turned on the television, closed the door and drew the blinds so her students could watch as history unfolded before them.
"You didn't think it was real. You thought it was a movie or a joke at first," said Beachy, 22. "But then you saw the adults. They are supposed to be the people who have all the answers and provide safety and comfort. That day, they didn't have the answers, and everybody needed comfort."
Eleven years after watching the events of 9/11 unfold on a small screen in her classroom, Beachy is putting the finishing touches on a documentary she hopes to bring to the big screen at film festivals.
The documentary, "We Were Quiet Once," looks at how the crash of United Flight 93 in Stonycreek Township affected people on the ground in Somerset County.
Beachy began the project in April 2010 while she was a student at Syracuse University majoring in television, radio and film, and anthropology.

Roger Beachy Director

The director of USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Roger Beachy was in St. Louis recently visiting the Old North co-op and discussing the issue of nutrition.
Here in St. Louis, the Old North Grocery Co-op opened last summer, in an effort to increase healthy food options in an underserved part of the city. It’s the first co-op in Missouri to serve a predominantly low-income neighborhood. Beachy says many communities don’t have public transportation, and without it, people are stuck with whatever food is available in walking distance – usually, a less healthy selection than most parents would like for their children.

Dave Beachy Sarasota Florida

Here is a picture of Dave Beachy with a Halibut he caught, Kodiak Island Alaska. It weighed over two hundred pounds. Dave is a Real estate broker at Beachy Properties. Dave posted this picture on his Face Book and I copied it from there. Hope Dave doesn't mind. It is too good not to share. I now have pictures of three Beachy men each with a Halibut they caught that went well over two hundred pounds. Halibut is in the top three best eating fish in the sea. (my opinion)

When Hillary Clinton met Phongsavath Souliyalat

Titus Peachey
July 27, 2012
When Secretary of State Hillary Clinton touched down in Lao Peoples Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) last week, she met Phongsavath Souliyalat, who had lost both his hands and his eyesight to a U.S. cluster bomb four years ago on his 16th birthday.
This marked the first time a U.S. secretary of state had traveled to Lao PDR and met with a wounded survivor of the U.S. air war that began more than 45 years ago.
I could not have imagined a visit from a U.S. official during my time as a Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) worker in Lao PDR (1980-1985, 1994). In the immediate aftermath of the Vietnam War, relationships between the U.S. and Lao PDR were so strained that high-level political contacts were not possible. Thankfully, diplomacy, trade and time have healed some wounds of war and led to much warmer relations in recent years.
However, as Secretary Clinton learned during her visit, fresh wounds from the years of war are a persistent reality in Lao PDR. The U.S. air war (1964-1973) over Lao PDR dropped more than 260 million cluster bomblets, many of which failed to explode on impact, constituting one of the most painful features of Lao village life over the past 40 years
Titus Peachey,  MCC U. S. Peace education coordinator, holds the head of a garden hoe that struck cluster bomb submuntion in Laos, killing the mother of eleven children.

Willie Beachy Captain of Charter Boat 'Daze Off' Homer Alaska

Alaska Dispatch Mike Campbell Jul 25, 2012
Homer Halibut Derby: 300-pounder gives Arizona woman lead

A Phoenix woman has landed what appears to be the biggest fish caught in Southcentral Alaska this summer.
Carol Allis on Wednesday pulled in a 300-pound halibut aboard the charter boat Daze Off, captained by Willie Beachy, in 160 feet of water in the Gulf of Alaska. The fish immediately vaulted into the lead in the biggest-fish category of the Homer Jackpot Halibut Derby.
“Once it started stripping off line that fast, I could tell it was a monster fish,” Beachy said Wednesday afternoon. “This one just started swimming away and stripping off line. For a while, I wasn’t sure we could turn her.
“Eventually, she (the halibut) would take a little bit of line, and then Carol would gain some back. Then she would take some more and Carol would gain some back. That went on and on.”
It took Allis about 90 minutes to maneuver the halibut beside the Daze Off, a boat with Reel Fun Charters. Then Beachy, two deck hands and two anglers aboard the charter used gaffs to pull the big fish aboard the boat. It was the biggest fish Allis has ever caught and the biggest Beachy has helped bring in during his 10 years of fishing in Homer.

Heather Beachy Named Police Chief

MEADVILLE — COCHRANTON — PA. She  doesn’t consider herself a ground-breaker, just a police officer with a new job.
Heather Beachy, a sergeant with Cochranton Police Department since 2009, now is chief of the department and is the first woman police chief in the history of Crawford County.
Beachy was named chief by Cochranton Borough Council, effective this month, taking over from Mike Phillips, who had retired.
“I’m excited about it,” Beachy said of her new role in a recent interview. “I want us to have a community-oriented police department.”
Mayor Burt Waite of Cochranton, the elected official who oversees the police department, said selecting Beachy was easy.
“She proved herself as sergeant,” said Waite. “We don’t have any concerns whether someone is male or female. She’s as tough as she needs to be when she has to and she’s also an excellent diplomat,” Waite said of Beachy. Click for more. Meadville Tribune July 16, 2012

Greg Beachey on Food Safety Tips

"In professional kitchens, trained staff and multiple safeguards ensure that food safety protocol is followed, but at home it's easy to let food safety practices be as casual as the food you are cooking on the grill," said Greg Beachey, senior academic relations and program manager with the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation. "Food safety is as important in the home as it is in restaurants to ensure safe and enjoyable meals for you and your family and friends. To underscore that importance, we collected tips from our professional food safety training experts and applied them to outdoor grilling at home or picnics."

Coach Mike Beachy Comments about Ameleah Moyer

Carlisle volleyball coach Mike Beachy remembers she didn’t like it and skipped out on her eighth-grade volleyball season. Moyer had to be talked into trying it again, but once she did she fell in love with the game and became one of the best in the state.
“We talked her into it in ninth grade,” Beachy said. “Once she fell in love with it, she was driven to work on every skill and be the best she could. She goes after it very hard.”
The coach said Moyer is an incredibly hard worker, and though things come naturally to her, she works at perfecting every skill. Moyer’s greatest asset is her strength, but she’s also “deceptively” fast and agile.
One of Moyer’s other gifts has been her ability to come up in the clutch. Beachy said in a lot of key situations, the Herd aimed to get the ball to their senior captain, and she’d deliver.
For the past two seasons, the Herd has also benefitted from Moyer’s leadership abilities.
“She’s been our captain for two years,” Beachy said. “Leading by example is much more of her gift. She’s fairly quiet in some ways but definitely does the stuff in practice and games that make her teammates follow her.”
The Herd featured nine seniors on the 2011 roster, and led by Moyer Carlisle finished the regular season 14-0 and captured the Mid-Penn Championship. Moyer finished her volleyball career as a two-time all-state selection, three-time District 3 selection and two-time Mid-Penn Commonwealth MVP. She was also The Sentinel’s 2012 Volleyball Player of the Year.
Despite all the accolades and honors, Moyer’s favorite memories came off the court. She treasures all the pasta parties and card games and fun times with her teammates.
Her coach also fondly remembers the fun times more than just the success.
“A lot of laughs with Ameleah,” Beachy said. “She’s a very funny girl as well. Some very good personal moments beyond volleyball.”
When volleyball ended, it was a quick turnaround before Moyer had to hit the court for a different sport. Once again she’d be called on to be a leader, but this time it would be of a squad lacking in varsity experience.
Once again, Moyer rose to the challenge. Article By Kurt Bopp, Sentinel Corespondent Posted: Sunday, July 15, 2012 8:08 pm [The Sentinel Varsity High School Sports]

Joe Peachey Galesburg

Joe Peachey learned the skills to develop a game app for iPhones and iPads while earning his master’s of science degree in computer science at Western Illinois University. But, real-life lessons he learned as a child started him on the path on which he is now traveling.
The Western Shootout game app can be downloaded for 99 cents on the iTunes App store. It is more than just a game. The slogan of his company is “Play with a Purpose.” Half of the proceeds of the shootout/shooting gallery game will be donated to the National Brain Tumor Society.
“The idea is to develop games and apps and each game I develop, we’ll donate a portion to a different charity,” Peachey said.
The choice for the first charity was an easy one. Peachey, now 26, began having seizures when he was 8 years old. The malignant tumor was not discovered for two years. He underwent surgery at the Mayo Clinic when he was 11. Because of where the tumor was located, there was a chance he would not be able to speak again. For five long minutes afterward, he was unable to talk, five of the longest minutes of the young man’s life. Then, the first words.
“I had surgery on my dad’s birthday,” he said. “My first words were ‘happy birthday.’ It was a real miracle for me and definitely for me family; a lot of prayers.”
Peachey’s life was already headed in a certain direction, but he was becoming more aware of that fact.
 “I knew somehow God was going to use all that for something,” he said.  Click for article in the Galesburg Register-Mail By John Pulliam Posted May 24, 2012

That’s why we need money to hire people,” she told our Justin Dennis.

Lisa Beachy Taco Bell Spokeswoman

Chicago Tribune News
Taco Bell recently released a neon orange Dorito Loco taco, which boasted a crust flavored like the popular Dorito corn chip. At 170 calories for a regular taco and 200 for a "supreme," it's almost diet food compared to the Pizza Hut offerings.
Johnson, for one, hadn't heard of Dorito Loco or some of the other novelty items out there. Once alerted to their existence, she was kind of appalled.
"It sounds disgusting," she said. "Being a diabetic, I can't eat that kind of food. It would really harm my health."
Yet restaurants don't seem prepared to stop offering these items any time soon. Pizza Hut spokeswoman LISA BEACHY said these specialty offerings are largely a way to allow the chain's chefs to exercise their creativity.
"They're just kind of fun pieces that we bring out to amp up the flavor a bit," she said.
However, to some, these offerings seem to be in bad taste in a country where obesity has become a national health crisis. According to the American Heart Association, 149.3 million Americans age 20 or older are overweight or obese. Among children 2 to 19, about 1 in 3 are overweight and obese.
When asked about the health aspects of Pizza Hut's specialty items, BEACHY acknowledged that they need to be eaten responsibly.
"When it comes to any type of food, moderation is key," she said. More Chicago Tribune News Amanda Cuda Connecticut Post, Bridgeport 12:20 p.m. CDTMay 7, 2012
