John Mervin: Risingsun, Ohio Pioneer

JOHN MERVIN, one of the early settlers at the site of the present town of Risingsun, is a highly respected resident of that place. Like many of the prosperous and influential men of the day, he has made his way to success through adverse circumstances, and his well-won competence determined credit upon him.

He is of English birth, having entered upon his mortal career in Leicestershire, January 11, 1824. His father, Thomas Mervin, was a butcher by trade. Our subject was reared upon a farm, near a small village, enjoying only the limited advantages of the common schools. He showed ability in the management and care of horses, and at an early age found employment in that work; but the opportunities for advancement seemed to him discouraging, and he determined to come to America. Leaving his young wife, formerly Miss Elizabeth Riley, he sailed from Liverpool, in April, 1849, in the ship "Joseph Badger," and after a voyage of four weeks landed in New York. The trip to Albany was made by river, from Albany to Buffalo by rail, and from Buffalo he came by lake to Sandusky, where he took the Mad River railroad, then the only one in this region. His destination was Avon township, Lorain county, but by mistake he went to New Haven, Huron county. On learning his error he started on foot for Lorain county, but while en route he was taken very ill in Greenfield township, Huron county, and was cared for by some friendly English people. On his recovery he had but fifty cents left of the sum which he had saved from his earnings for his journey, and a new start in life. This money was spent for wine to stimulate his impaired energies, and instead of going on, he decided to remain there and rent a farm.

In the spring of 1850 his wife rejoined him. She had a difficult voyage, spending four months on the way, and being shipwrecked three times. They lived there for several years, renting different farms in the locality, but in the fall of 1863 they came to Wood county, driving through in a wagon. Mr. Mervin purchased sixty acres of land in Section 36, Montgomery township, where the village of Risingsun now stands. At that time the land was partially improved in the dry portion and a plank house stood near his present home. The swamply part of the farm had to be cleared, however, and there was no small amount of hard work to be done in the first years of his stay; but the rapid development of the locality brought prosperity. He still owns severnty acres of land in the vicinity, and also has ten acres in Jackson township, Seneca county. In 1877 he built a fine residence in Risingsun, which he has since occupied. Mrs. Mervin's death, December 9, 1888, brought deep sorrow to this pleasant home. her remains are interred in Trinity cemetery, Scott township, Sandusky county. They had nine children, all of whom are living: Sarah, Mrs. George Young, of Seneca county; Mary, Mrs. Adam Graber, of Risingsun; George, a farmer in Perry township; Elizabeth, Mrs. Frank Blonde, of Perry township; Eliza and Lucy, who are at home; Frances, Mrs. Benjamin Bates, of Risingsun; Anna, Mrs. Courtland Essex, of the same town, and Hattie, Mrs. Russell Hoover [my great grandmother], of Montgomery township.

Mr. Mervin's parents came to the United States in 1855 or '56, and located in Greenwich township, Huron county, where his father died at the age of seventy-three years. His mother afterward made her home in Wood county with her children, but died in Richland county at ninety years of age. Mr. Mervin is the eldest of six children, all living. Thomas resides in Risingsun; George, in Longley; Elizabeth is the widow of James Brinson, of Huron county; Hannah married John Thompson, of Richland county, and Emma married first the late John Jenney, and second John Winder, of New Orleans, Louisiana.

Mr. Mervin possessed in youth a powerful physique, and is still well-preserved, his strictly temperate habits being in his favor. Fond of reading, he has intelligent views on the questions of the time, and his interest in the education of the rising generation has led to several years of able service as school director. In Principle he is a Democrat, but is not bound by partisan ties in the choice of suitable men for local offices. He is a leading member of the ME Church.

Street Fighter Moves – The 7 Reasons Why the Head-Butt is One of Your Most Destructive RBSD Arsenals

There is a lot of myth and comedy surrounding the head-butt. You have seen the movie scenes where the funny guy decides to head-butt the villain and winds up rubbing his own forehead or knocking himself out. Make no mistake about it – the head-butt is powerful and very destructive when applied and executed properly. A forceful head-butt can totally smash-in a face – crushing inward the delicate facial bones with the same force as you’re dropping a bowling ball onto someone’s sleeping face from a high standing position.

How To Properly Execute A Frontal Head-Butt

The only problem with properly executing the head-butt is in understanding the area of the head that you are to strike with without injuring yourself. If you do hurt yourself while performing a head-butt, it is usually a frontal head-butt which has been applied improperly.

  • You do NOT strike with the smooth frontal surface of your forehead – for you are almost guaranteed to hurt yourself. You must strike with the upper , hardest bony part of your forehead – this is the dividing line where your forehead meets your hairline.

7 Reasons Why The Head-Butt Is One Of Your Most Destructive Reality-Based Self Defense Arsenals:

Reason #1 – Little Training Is Necessary – Once you understand the correct surface of your head that you should be striking with, you are good to go.

Reason #2 – It’s Simple – The head-butt involves no complicated moves or strategies.

Reason #3 – No Stretching Or Preparation Is Necessary – Unlike complicated maneuvers that require lots of hamstring flexibility of muscles and tendons that have been previously stretched out and warmed up, the head-butt requires neither. No warm-ups or preparatory stretching is necessary.

Reason #4 – A Head-Butt Can Be Executed From Almost Any Position –

  • If you’re clenched from a front standing position – a frontal head-butt will do the trick.
  • If you’re clenched from a rear standing position – rear head-butt will do the job.
  • If your clenched on the ground – a front or a rear head-butt can end any fight really fast.

Reason #5 – It’s Surprising – One of the reasons why a head-butt is so effective is that so few fighters use it thereby making it an excellent surprise «shock-maneuver».

Reason #6 – It’s Hard To See Coming – Because of the very short distance that the head-butt travels and the speed at which it strikes, it is virtually impossible to see coming. Their is no telegraph of the move. You just quickly and suddenly move your head forward or backwards and «Bam!», you subject is hit and down for the count.

Reason #7 – It’s Easily Recalled – Because of the head-butt’s simplicity is will be naturally easy to recall in the heat of battle.

How To Determine If A Moving Company Is Trustworthy

There are many household and commercial movers in the United States and they all try to lure you with extremely cheap prices, promising high quality services. But not all of them are honest and you can be deceived if you do not know how to choose a competent mover. We want to present you the main factors to consider when looking for reliable moving companies. Check the following guide!

– Experience. For a new company it is hard to pretend that they offer high quality services at lowest price. They do not have the experience and tools to do an effective operation in minimum of time, thus consuming less fuel and working hours that must be paid to the employees by the company. On the opposite, if you find a company that has many years of experience, it likely that they have developed strategies and effective planning and human resource management. Always go with a well-established mover.

– Tools. Again, a high quality company has an arsenal consisting of modern tools and vehicles. They usually talk about these tools on their website, sometimes even presenting them in a photo gallery. Reliable companies like to advertise their brand on their moving vehicles. If you find a company that tells you that it offers the lowest price, but it does not mention a word about their equipment, chances are that it does not have a modern one or it has a few tools. It would be wise to ask about equipment before signing any paper.

– Public Image. Reputable movers want to have a clean public image and they want to make them known through various marketing campaigns. You will know that a company is good if you hear about of them more often than other companies. Usually they can offer cheap prices because they want to be ahead their competitors by providing promotional prices while they promote their image through marketing campaigns.

– Feedbacks. Positive feedbacks are also a good sign for quality results. If you find a company that has affordable prices and has good ratings and testimonials, you should check them closer. Nowadays it is easier than ever to check for ratings and general customer satisfaction. Besides checking the complaint ratio, you can access several websites and see what current and former customers have to say about the company. Naturally, a mover with numerous positive reviews should be your top priority.

In fact stretch limos in the North West can be used for practically any occasion.

It is always a good idea to book your limousine early, in fact the earlier the better. This is particularly true for key dates such as weddings and school proms as these events are the most popular for limousine hire. By booking early not only will you avoid disappointment and hire the limousine you want but you may also get a very competitive price. This is because limousine companies are always keen to rent their limos out rather than have them sitting in the depot and there is no way of knowing how busy a particular day is likely to be. You will find that as that date approaches and demand increases the cost of the rental will increase considerably, in some case as high as 50 percent. Another way to keep limousine hire prices down is to rent midweek, again demand is the key. The most popular days of the week for limousine hire are Fridays and Saturdays. Therefore by booking on a less popular day such as a Sunday prices are likely to be much lower.

The Importance of Lunch at a Conference Venue

Liverpool is a great place for shopping but also one favorite by businesses looking for a suitable location in which to have a meeting. Many of the conference venues in Liverpool are in the city center and this means they have great locality to restaurants so that your delegates can have lunch. However, a good tip is to arrange catering within the venue itself so your delegates don't have to leave and you don't run the risk of the meeting over-running due to latecomers returning from the restaurant after lunch! It might sound trivial, but making eating arrangements in preparation for a conference is one of the most important things you can do. The reason for this is simple; people enjoy their food.

Think for a moment, if you will, about being in a conference venue, Liverpool. You have been there for a number of hours and the clock is ticking. The hunger pangs are setting in. Of course you want to be able to take note of the very important conference meeting taking place but your mind is gradually wandering and you start thinking about when lunchtime is going to arrive. That's why it is so vitally important that you plan lunch for your delegates at the conference venue. Liverpool has a great selection of restaurants nearby, but why not ask the venue to organize the catering? Many will gladly oblige.

Make Your Meeting Productive

Many conference event organizers forget to make suitable lunch arrangements and this can leave a bad taste in people's mouths. Those that have traveled from far and wide to Liverpool don't expect to be sat in a conference all day; they want to eat. It's only natural. Of course, one of the benefits of providing a satisfying lunch for your delegates is that they are far more likely to concentrate after they have eaten because they are content and much more settled than in the morning. Conference meetings should be productive and one of the best ways to do this is to ensure you plan a good lunch for your guests.

Take The Pressure Off

Some conference venues in Liverpool have in-house catering and if you want to take the weight off your shoulders a bit, it may be worthwhile discussing lunch arrangements with the venue itself. There are a great number of grand conference venues that offer a wide variety of catering facilities, making it an ideal place to organize a large meeting. Plus, by having the venue itself take care of the catering, this leaves more time for you to plan all the other important elements that make up a successful Liverpool conference. Some venues have the added benefit of being fully licensed, so delegates can enjoy a glass of wine after the stressful, all day meeting. Of course, most conferences on the larger scale tend to run over a number of days, so a fully licensed bar within the venue can be a real asset. Do an online search for Liverpool conference venues that offer this facility.

Use The Time Wisely

If you would rather opt for a meeting room that doesn't have the temptation of alcohol downstairs, there are some smaller venues in Liverpool that might be more suitable, particularly for those that are just having a conference that takes place on only one day. It may also be the case that you ask your delegates to bring a packed lunch with them so that a long lunch break that involves people scurrying off to find restaurants nearby doesn't eat into the valuable meeting time.

Planning a meeting at any conference venue can be a stressful task. However, planning the little extras such as eating arrangements is crucial if you are to have contented, satisfied delegates that are willing to give you their full attention. There's nothing worse than sitting in a meeting and feeling hungry!

Didier Drogba and the Ivory Coast Men’s National Soccer Team

Didier Drogba was a smash hit at the African Nations Cup which was produced by CAF (Confederation of African Football) and hosted in Egypt. The final with Ivory Coast took place on February 10 2006 and was won by the host country Egypt 4-2 on penalty shoot-out.

Didier Drogba had the most impact of any other national player of any other of the participaying teams during the course of the intra African match-ups. He is essentially a centeral force on any of the teams he has played on.. This also includes Chelsea of the English Premier League of which he is also a striker.

For team mate, Toure, Drogba presents a potentially decisive edge in the first competitive meeting between Ivory Coast and Nigeria since the 1994 Nations Cup semi-final won by the Nigerians on penalties.

«Drogba is a really great player and he is something special. We are really proud of what hehas a done for the team».

«It’s going to be a very hard game. But now we are in the semi-finals, anything can happen. We’ve got our chance,» said defender Toure.

Seconds into the second half, the whole difference was made when Drogba netted his fourth goal of the tournament and the Elephants could afford to sit back for most of the second half.

The goal stung the Nigerian bench who immediately replaced Mikel Obi with Jay Jay Okocha and Kanu Nwankwo with Julius Aghahowa, but still the Nigerians could not turn the game round. This is the first time the Ivorians, who have qualified for the World cup, will have played in the final since winning the title in 1992 in Senegal.

The Egyptians must thank goalkeeper Essam EL Hadary for saving two penalties as Ivory Coast’s Didier Drogba missed a crucial first spot kick for the Elephants.
