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]
