Something a bit different from the spring of 2017. One of the company's customers is located in Minster, Ohio. So I get there about once or twice each month. In my opinion one of the prettiest small towns I have traveled to over the years. Post card perfect. http://home.nra.org/ http://home.nra.org/nraila https://www.nraila.org/
This video is about Minster, Ohio. The video shows the highlights of the area during the summer time to give a sense of the area.
COLUMBUS, Ohio The Minster Wildcats won in dramatic fashion Friday afternoon at Ohio Stadium, rallying from a nine point deficit with 4:18 remaining to win its second OHSAA state football championship, 46-42, over Kirtland. Minster has won 28 OHSAA team state championships as a school, tied for seventh all-time. The Wildcats first OHSAA football state championship came 25 years ago, the last time the OHSAA state football championships were held at Ohio Stadium. Minster defeated McDonald 16-7 to win that game. Kirtland was playing in its fourth-consecutive state championship, earning two state titles and two state runner-up honors in that time. What a cool deal. That was two really good football teams competing, said Minster head coach Geron Stokes. It came down to the last second. Credit Kirtland. What a run for those guys. They're as tough and physical a team as we've played all year. Credit our kids and the resiliency they showed. We did not belong here early on in the year. This is the most improvement I've seen out of a team, a group of kids that bought into being better. This is awesome. Kirtland held a 21-20 lead at halftime after exchanging five lead changes with Minster in the first half. Minster regained the lead with 9:49 left in the third quarter with a 22 yard pass from Josh Nixon to Eli Wolf. Kirtland would respond, heading into the fourth quarter with a 28-27 lead after a nine yard pass from Sam Skiljan to Evan Madden. With 4:18 remaining, Kirtland extended its lead to 42-33 after Adam Hess scored from three yards out on his second rushing touchdown of the game. With 1:56 to go, Minsters Evan Huelsman scored from two yards out. Trailing 42-40, Minster attempted an onside kick, which was recovered by junior kicker Jason Schultz. On second down, Nixon found Eli Wolf for a 51 yard touchdown that would prove to be the game winning play for the Wildcats. Minster junior quarterback Josh Nixon finished 26 of 41 passing, 417 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions. Sophomore receiver Bryce Schmiesing and senior receiver Eli Wolf led the Wildcats in receiving. Schmiesing totaled seven catches, 150 yards and one touchdown, while Wolf added nine receptions for 145 yards and three touchdowns. Kirtland was led by senior running back Adam Hess. Hess, who finished with 181 yards and two touchdowns in the 2013 Division VI state championship, carried the ball 39 times for 164 yards and two touchdowns Friday. Kirtland senior quarterback Sam Skiljan finished 7-of-14 for 145 yards and three touchdowns. The Hornets were led in receiving by senior Matthew Finkler, who finished with four catches, 120 yards and two touchdowns. With Minsters state championship, the Midwest Athletic Conference has now claimed 108 OHSAA state championships. The attendance for the 2014 OHSAA Division VI state championship was 7,361.

RJ Corman 1731 leads a rare one car move on the Minster Branch. The load of steel coil is for Precision Strip in Minster Ohio. The cross RT 219 where several years ago their train was struck by a dump truck knocking it off the rails. The crossing remains ungated At Clover 4 rd the conductor flagged the crossing while the train creeped through the crossing over a broken railhead. My last shop was in New Bremen.
