 Sinnemahone Gravel Race 
 Saturday, September 28, 2019  9 AM – 5 PM

https://www.sinnemahone.org

Sinnemahone Gravel Race sponsored by Embassy Powdered Metals is a 55 mile timed race/ride with 5000 feet of climbing starting and finishing on West Creek Recreational Trail. The route includes 2 trail sections, improved gravel roads, 1 seasonally maintained road, 2 short paved sections, and the best mountain scenery in Pennsylvania. The course is largely within the Elk State Forest and travels through Sinnemahoning State Park and southern Potter County.

Sinnemahone Gravel 
 For those who are not on the gravel biking scene or into bicycling at all and are wondering what a gravel bike and gravel biking is, here is a brief explanation. We have been gravel biking here for decades given the significant miles of dirt roads we have - we just didn't call it that as we were riding mountain bikes. Gravel biking as it is known now is a response to deteriorating paved road conditions everywhere and the desire to ride on safer roads. Gravel courses are typically long and combine dirt roads, secondary roads, and short sections of trails and pavement. Gravel bikes as such came about 5 years ago or so and are essentially endurance road bikes with clearance for greater width tires to handle off pavement conditions. Go to a gravel race and while you will see mostly gravel bikes as they are perhaps the most well rounded option, you will see all types of bikes - full suspension mountain bikes, hardtail mountain bikes, drop bar mountain bikes, fat bikes, maybe even the occasional road bike. At some point in a gravel race/ride, one of those options will be the best; and at another point it may be the worst. It is a sport with no attitude where the experience of the ride is the prize. The Sinnemahone Gravel course is just one of an endless combination of dirt roads in this region. The best way to experience riding here is to pick up a DCNR Elk or Susquehannock State Forest Map and start riding. Don't wait until this event to come here to ride.

Book Signing by area native Amy Case

 In this Christian Romance, Lyddie Fisher and her family have broken away from their Amish Faith; however, does Lyddie have the strength to endure living among the English? She has found it hard to separate herself from her old life and her Amish friends. Now married to Blake Talbert, an English law enforcement officer, she feels she has it all. Life is good. That is until she sees her husband in the arms of another woman. Divorce among the Amish is unheard of, but Lyddie is no longer Amish, and she fears divorce is imminent. With her husband away, Lyddie ponders on some of her fondest memories. Walk with Lyddie through her journey in this new life she has chosen. And, as an added bonus, take a look into Lyddie’s journal where she tells about her family and her sister 
Emma’s struggles. 

Case will also have copies of her first release, “The Journey of Lyddie Fisher”, available for sale and signing. This title is also currently available for loan from the library. “The Journey of Lyddie Fisher” will be available for $13 and “Enduring Strength” is $12.

Cameron County Sports Hall of Fame



Saturday, September 28, 2019 at 5 PM – 8 PM
 Cameron County High School
 Emporium, PA 15834 
Hosted by Hometown15834

 Hometown Mentors, Inc. is pleased to announce the recipients for its biennial Cameron County Sports Hall of Fame. This year, there are two inductees. First is the long-time head coach of the Cameron County Football Team, Coach John Fragale. Coach Fragale grew up in Emporium, Pennsylvania and graduated from Cameron County High School in 1966. He served as the Head Coach for the 1999 Raider squad. He coached the Red Raiders for over 35 of years, until his retirement in 2012. In the course of his tenure coaching, Coach Fragale mentored hundreds of young men both on the field and off field, which earned him the nick-name of ‘Papa John.’

HMI will also induct the 1999 Red Raider Football Team. The 1999 Football Team is among the most successful sports teams in Cameron County High School history. The team notably achieved a 12-1 record, becoming both the Allegheny Mountain League and District Nine champions in the process. Some of the most memorable games during the 1999 historic season were the long-awaited twin victories over the rival Smethport Hubbers during the regular season and in the AML Championship Game, the record-setting 72-6 victory over the Ridgway Elkers, and the miraculous final drive and victory over the Sharpsville Blue Devils, which launched the Red Raiders to the final eight in the PIAA Class A playoffs. The 1999 Red Raider season ended with heartbreaking double overtime loss against the Bishop Carroll Huskies.

The 1999 Team and Coach Fragale will be honored in a ceremony held at the Cameron County High School Auditorium on Saturday, September 28, 2019 at 5 p.m. All are encouraged to attend this event, and there is no admission fee. Any attendee desiring to donate to HMI will be able to do so at the ceremony. Questions about this event may be directed to Annette Campbell, Hall of Fame Project Manager and Joe Malizia, HMI President.

Some of you may ask, what is Hometown Mentors? 
 Below is a short description and further information can be found by visiting their website at 

 "The founder of HMI saw real needs in her rural, Pennsylvania, hometown of Emporium for help in making day to day life just a little more pleasant and she felt that there must be more former residents who want to find a way to give back to the place they call “Home”. She couldn’t be the only one.

During the initial research on how, exactly, to help bring money, experience and encouragement back home, she found that one way would be to have a nonprofit with an IRS tax exempt status of 501(c)3. Many can affirm that not much can be done, in the form of getting grants and major gifts, without having this status. So, she went to work to form a nonprofit corporation that would help the people still living in her hometown to be encouraged to move happily into the future.

With the enthusiastic help of a handful of volunteers who share her passion and love of Emporium, PA, Hometown Mentors was created. The status of “nonprofit charity” was certified by the IRS on December 8, 2011.

Over the next few years, the theory was proved and many worthwhile projects, private donations and grants gave encouragement back home. This volunteer corporation began to show Emporium, PA that she was not alone and the future would include all of us together. Through the help of social media, former residents from all over the world raised their hands saying, I want to help. Working together with the resident mentors, these former residents give personal donations. Local agencies and foundations, along with state and national corporations give grants and HMI continues to work together with all the stakeholders in Emporium to prove this theory.

If you are interested in details of the projects, you can find more detailed information about HMI at our website: http://hometownmentors.com. The point is, that working together all of us can give back, pay it forward and make a difference in our hometown. A capitol building project is enthusiastically being studied to begin in 2018."

Rotary News


Rotarian & Senior Extension Educator for Penn State Cooperative Extension, Robin Kuleck, was the guest speaker at the Rotary luncheon meeting July 23rd educating the club on the invasive 
spotted lanternfly.

The spotted lanternfly is an invasive insect from Asia currently found in southeastern Pennsylvania, and sightings have been reported in some neighboring states. The pest threatens important agricultural commodities, including the grape, hardwood, tree fruit, landscape and nursery industries - sectors that contribute nearly $18 billion annual to Pennsylvania’s economy.

This planthopper weakens plants by feeding on sap. It excretes a sticky, sugary substance called honeydew which attracts stinging insects, promotes the growth of sooty mold, and causes a messy nuisance for residents.

To help stop the spread of spotted lanternfly, the state has issued a quarantine order requiring the inspection of all items moving within or out of the area to prevent the transport of any living life state of the pest.

Any sightings can be reported to extension.psu.edu/spotted-lanternfly.

Natural Mosquito Repellant

Mosquitos are an annual annoyance that comes with the arrival of warm, moist weather. Many of Pennsylvania’s native plants hold volatile oils that have a natural ability to repel mosquitos. You can help keep mosquitos at bay by planting these types if plants:
 Native mints -- field mint, mountain-mints 
Bee balms -- wild bergamot, purple bergamot, oswego-tea 
Ageratums -- mistflower, wild ageratum 
Sages -- lyre-leaved sage, lance-leaved sage
 Alliums -- wild onion, nodding onion, wild leek 

To activate the repelling powers of these plants, be sure to crush or bruise some the leaves to release the oils before heading out to enjoy the outdoors. 
Keep them in your pocket and enjoy all-natural bug repellant!
