Say it with me: Cuh-shock-ten
I will never understand the people in this town and their incapability to properly pronounce the name of the very town they live in.
There’s nothing really all that exciting about this town, to be totally honest. If you want to do anything fun the only things to do around here are to go see a movie and be given only two options or go bowling. Anything else requires you to travel forty-five minutes to Zanesville. Granted, we do have the tourist attraction called The Historic Roscoe Village. Here you can visit the museum or buy Harry Potter candy (I recommend the latter).
You also cannot walk into any store and not see one person you know. You might not even know them, they just might know your parents which they deem as acquaintance enough to take ten minutes of your time and chat your ear off. They could also be your relative, close or distant. In our small town, distant relatives are typically treated just as close as if they were your first cousins, aunt, or whichever they are to you. Point is, you grew up calling them “Aunt Vicky,” even if they were your mom’s cousin.
Even though there are seemingly many negatives to this town, many unlisted, there are a few positives. For instance, any town you may want to visit to is about forty-five minutes to an hour-and-a-half car ride. We also have a few successful athletic programs, like CHS’s girls/boys soccer, RV’s marching band, or Ridgewood’s wrestling.
