Honor our fallen heroes this Memorial Day By Kellen M. Quigley Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start to the summer, many times involving family picnics, great shopping deals and a day off. Before you pull out those white pants and head to the mall, take a few moments to reflect on the true reason for this holiday: remembrance. This weekend, make sure your American flag is flying, immerse yourself in patriotism and take a few moments to reflect on the lives that have been lost and the freedoms we all enjoy. Springville’s annual Memorial Day Parade is scheduled for Monday, May 28. The parade will form on South Buffalo Street by the log cabin and Veteran’s Park at 9:45 a.m.
and will proceed north on Buffalo Street at 10 a.m. to Main Street and turn on West Main Street to Maplewood Cemetery. In Gowanda, the Legion will also host a free breakfast for veterans from 7 to 9 a.m., which is also when the lineup will take place for the 20th annual Ride to Remember. A rider meeting will be held at 9 a.m. along with a moment of remembrance. Kickstands up at 9:15 a.m.; the ride starts at the Gowanda American Legion Post and will travel through Collins to Springville and up Route 240 to Sprague Brook Park in Glenwood, where a ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. The ceremony will commence with placement of the colors by the AMVETS Post 219 Honor
Guard at 11 a.m. It is suggested that people gather at the Memorial Grove prior to 10:30 a.m., at which time many motorcycle riders will arrive from the American Legion in East Aurora and the American Legion in
Gowanda. Gowanda HarleyDavidson will host their Ride to Remember event in conjunction with the ceremony, beginning at the American Legion Post #409 and 100 Legion Dr. in Gowanda. Veterans
can enjoy a free breakfast before heading to Sprague Brook. Beginning at the entrance of the park and leading to the Memorial Grove, the road will be lined on either side with over 1,000 American Flags
placed by the committee on Sunday prior to the ceremony. As they make their way to the Memorial Grove, attendees will pass beneath a giant American Flag. To honor those Erie County citizens who were killed in the Vietnam conflict, the ceremony will be held in front of the wall where their names are engraved. The solemn ceremony will honor all U.S. Citizens who gave their lives in service to our country. Many years ago, the trees that are on either side of the grove were planted, one for each Vietnam Veteran from Erie County who gave their lives for us, by Schichtel’s Nursery, Inc. As the holiday weekend unfolds, remember our fallen heroes.
Concord Town Board addresses issues at Trevett, Groth roads By Kellen M. Quigley There was much discussion at the May 9 meeting of the Concord Town Board concerning the closure of Trevett and Groth roads due to undriveable conditions. The board unanimously authorized Town Supervisor Clyde Drake to send a letter to the Erie County DPW Commissioner regarding the recent deterioration of
Groth Road, “making travel treacherous for emergency vehicles, school buses and the general public.” The board also authorized Drake to send a second letter that would point out the “continued negligence to re-open south Trevett Road at the closed section just north of Zoar Valley Road.” Supervisor Drake said that the letters would put the county on notice, which
is the only legal step the town has available at this time. “I’ve been down there and Trevett Road hasn’t moved,” said Council member Phil Drozd, who was a senior highway engineer for 15 years with Erie County, spending much of his time in area covering the town of Concord. “In the four years that I’ve been gone, that’s four

Looking back to when we gathered flowers to lay on the graves of our loved ones who had died during a battle. From the Revolutionary War, Civil War and Spanish American War to the two World Wars, the Korean War, Vietnam War and beyond, we lay flowers on their graves to remember them. Memorial Day is for those who died while in Military Service. But how did it all get started? General John A. Logan called for a nationwide

years that realistically nothing much has happened down here,” he said. “I fixed that exact same spot twice… it just needs constant maintenance down there.” Drozd said he is ashamed of the condition of the road now. He said the crew employees who worked under him are ashamed of the condition, too. During the pubic discussion portion of the meeting, County Legislator John Mills reported on the roads and infrastructure in the Concord area, noting that the roads the county is responsible for are in rough shape. Mills said that several roads in the town are scheduled to be worked on this summer, according to tony Scolese, the highway department engineer at the East Concord site. These roads would include Abbott Hill Road, Brown Hill Road, Emerling Road and South Vaughn Street. A bridge replacement is also scheduled for Trevett Road at Route 39. According to Mills, the county is working on opening Trevett Road back up soon after a closure last year due to heavy washout. “Heavy duty patching” is also lined up for Zoar Valley Road.
Photo by Kellen M. Quigley Trevett Road in the town of Concord has been closed for several months now, and the detour around it from Route 39 to Zoar Valley Road has emergency responders worried that the failure to fix the road may lose someone their life.
“I’ve been trying to get the state to work with us and the federal government to work with us,” Mills said. “To do that road right, it would cost $22 million dollars. … We have people from all over the country and sometimes the world visit that pristine area. Don’t you think it’s common sense to have a good road to get there?” Firemen Steve Bugary and Bob Darling of the Morton Corners Fire District explained that the fire company has been having problems serving the residents in that area because of Trevett and Groth roads being closed. They said the fire company has to come into Springville and take an alternate route
around, which could take as long as 10 minutes and not save somebody in time. Mills said that he is working with the county on trying to get emergency funding for Groth Road and that the Trevett Road project is in the design stage now. Having things on the record such as petitions, calling the County Executive, flooding social media — “be the squeaky wheel” — is the way to help get something done. Those who wish to submit a petition or do a writing letter campaign can do so at the Concord Town Hall with Town Clerk Darlene Schweikert or with Nancy Heath in Mill’s county office.

Springville Fiddle Fest returns for eighth year
This year, the Springville Country and Blue Grass Festival will feature 12 bands along with historic demonstrators, vendors, food trucks, clogging by the WNY Clogging Association and an expanded Antique Car Cruise-In. As a family-friendly event, the festival hopes to extend its appeal to children and families by featuring new and interactive events for kids. The festival starts at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 27 and runs to 6 p.m. on Franklin Street in Springville at Fiddlers Green Park, Heritage Park and the Concord Mercantile. Admission is free. “We’re thrilled to have Creek Bend and City Fiddle return to our music line-up this year and welcome the Buffalo Barn Katz to kick things off in the Jam Tent,” said Event Chairperson Debbie Hintz. “With a grant from the New York State Council of the Arts, we can
offer 12 different bands at three different venues all free to the public.” Hintz said she community support has been great, the Trading Post will be open and serving food and attendees won’t want to miss seeing the new exhibits in the Mercantile Building and the Concord Historical Museum. “It’s an exciting afternoon with three music venues and lots to see and do,” she said. “We have food vendors located throughout the festival grounds and fine restaurants on Main Street.” Car Cruise-in Coordinator, Warren Hashagen, shared the enthusiasm. “The Dash Plaques have been designed and ordered and will be given to the first 25 vehicles to register,” he said. “If anyone wants to see a Big Red Wagon on wheels, we have invited this unique vehicle to be a part of the show along with a
1940s Fire Truck. Weather permitting both vehicles will be just a couple of the antique motor vehicles at the cruise-in.” In addition to the music performances, the WNY Clogging Association will have lessons and demonstrations in the Concord Town Hall. The Fiddler’s Green Militia will once again have its popular colonial encampment in Fiddler’s Green Park along with other historic demonstrators, including a blacksmith. The ever-popular Jam Tent will be located on Franklin Street next to the Trading Post. New for 2019 the Buffalo Barn Katz will be getting the jamming started, so be sure to bring your acoustic instrument to join in on the fun under the tent. The music festival continues Springville’s musical history. Before the village was incorporated in 1834, the hamlet was

In 1950, the Women’s Relief Corp strewed flowers on the Springville Pond for the unknown soldiers that had died and for those that lost their life at sea. In 1971, Memorial Day became an official holiday. The name was changed from Decoration Day to Memorial Day in 1967.

EM and its cleanup contractor CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley, LLC (CHBWV) recently completed the relocation of two 69,000-pound HighIntegrity Containers (HIC) from their location inside

Concord Legion Auxiliary to distribute poppies May 25
Honor past sacrifices and contribute to the continuing needs of veterans at WalMart in Springville where members of Concord American Legion Auxiliary will distribute bright, red poppies. The poppy has become a nationally known and recognized symbol of sacrifice to honor the men and women who served
and died for their country in all wars. “Wear the poppy in honor of the millions of Americans who have willingly served our nation, all too many of whom have made the ultimate sacrifice,” said Auxiliary President Anne Baglio. “This entire Memorial Day weekend will pay an honored tribute to all veterans.”
carbon steel shield, was relocated from the FRS decontamination pit to a secure outside storage area. Each HIC contained filtering materials used in the FRS water treatment system. “This accomplishment allows the continuation of the FRS deactivation,” said DOE-WVDP Director Bryan Bower. “By performing this work now, we can use our highlyskilled workforce to further reduce legacy risks.” A tractor with a lowboy trailer (very low deck to carry tall loads) was backed into the FRS. Using the inside 100-ton crane, each HIC and its exterior shield were moved from the decontamination pit onto the trailer. Once the HICs were secured, the trailer was driven out of the FRS in parallel to a 200-ton mobile crane. Each HIC was safely and deliberately lifted from the trailer and placed in its new location. “Our team continues to use their combined knowledge to safely and deliberately complete high-risk work activities,” CHBWV President Scott Anderson said. “I’m proud of their efforts, accomplishments, and in the work, they continue to do on this project.” The FRS was historically used to receive and store spent nuclear fuel during fuel reprocessing operations from 1966 to 1972. This work scope, which includes the HIC relocation and the removal of asbestoscontaining material, was recently added to the current contract to further prepare the facility for future demolition.

SGI teacher travels to China
Photo by Ely Schosek Springville physical education teacher Gerry Czemerynski presents to students on his recent trip to China and the unique experiences he had while there.
By Ely Schosek Student Reporter Not everyone will have the opportunity to travel to another country during their lifetime, but Gerry Czemerynski is not just anyone. A physical education teacher at SpringvilleGriffith High School, and known to his students as Mr. C, Czemerynski recently had the opportunity to travel to China. One of his daughters, Brooke, teaches English to children there. Students of Marianna
Krolikowski and Diane Waterman were lucky enough to recently hear about Mr. C’s trip. “Anything that can get you out of Springville, even for an hour, and help you see the world is priceless and valuable,” said Waterman. “Let your mind experience what it’s like to be in China through him.” Also in attendance for the presentation were Superintendent Kimberly Moritz, High School Principal James Bialasik and Vice Principal Joe DeMartino. Mr. C started off his
presentation by talking about the setting, saying there were both bamboo trees and palm trees but he “didn’t see any pandas.” He also noted that it was 85 to 90 degrees consistently throughout the two weeks they were there over spring break. “Lots of rain too!” When it comes to food, that’s different in China too, he said. There are many outdoor open markets. In regard to dining, there are small amounts to be shared. Each meal starts with hot water that is used
to clean the utensils and dishes even though they are brought to you clean. Although this may seem strange to us, it is customary in China. After showing the audience an image of a meal he had in China, Mr. C said, “I was in my glory there because the vegetables were awesome,” earning a laugh from everyone in the room. “Starbucks is opening a store in China every 15 hours,” Mr. C. mentioned. “It’s almost like you’re at a photoshoot at every Starbucks,” in that there
are many young girls taking photos and then getting paid for posting them online. While taking a train ride through some of the more rural parts of China, he noticed one thing: rice. “I knew it was a different land because of the rice patties,” he said. This led to Bialasik’s question on the proper way to eat rice with chopsticks. Also during his train ride, Mr. C. noted, “Everywhere I looked there were mountains.” While showing some pictures from his trip, Mr. C. showed a photo of the Port of Hong Kong and stated, “The picture doesn’t really do it justice.” Additionally, he discussed what Hong Kong looked like at night. A large crowd gathered every night to watch the light show on the water projected from the tops of the buildings. During the day, his family took a double decker bus through the back streets of Hong Kong. After a short flight, they arrived in Beijing. “In Beijing, you see a lot of military. They’re all over,” Mr. C. said. “Definitely a huge military presence.” But despite the pollution, “Beijing was beautiful!” Among the sights they saw was the Forbidden City, which he noted was “never ending” and the Great Wall. While walking along the wall, he said, “Every time I thought I was at the highest point, I saw another higher point.” In regard to the economy, Mr. C. mentioned that everything was extremely cheap in
China. Socially “on one hand they have all that technology, but on the other hand they don’t have social media,” which results from the communist government and the censorship that goes along with that. The cities were extremely crowded but well organized, he said. Mr. C. explained how big of a decision it was for his daughter to make to go live and teach in China. The family had talked to a couple who lived in China for 10 years before they made any decisions. Safety was another key component of the trip. The use of chopsticks to steal was apparently very common and if you were to catch them they would apologize and give it back. “They fear that if they were to hurt you or worse, fatally harm you, they would be haunted for a thousand lives.” The incident would surely end without any violent confrontation. Mr. C. said that it was very important for them to plan before they went because “the Chinese government is very suspicious” and you would not want them to think you had illintentions. In respect to communicating in Chinese, he said that he had created a basic list of Chinese words and phrases on his phone spelled phonetically which helped tremendously. Next week, look for part two of this story to see what the students’ opinions of the presentation were.

At May’s school board meeting, Maureen Lee, School Business Administrator, began with a small speech thanking the bus drivers for all they do. “SGI bus drivers safely transport about 1,700 students a day,” she said. Lee also noted the fact that
the district covers nine different towns over 140 square miles. Additionally, she mentioned the huge variance of road conditions these drivers must brave throughout the year. “There’s no such thing as just a bus driver,”said Lee, adding that they know so much about the kids. For some they are one of the first friendly faces they see in the morning and one of the last ones they see in the afternoon. They hear stories about field trips, pets, wins, loses and everything else in between. “You are unsung heroes!” Lee said. “You do your job with pride and professionalism and we thank you for that.” “We don’t take you for granted,” District Superintendent Kimberly Moritz added. “We realize the job you do is vitally important to our students and our community and we’re very grateful for all of you.” During the meeting, the board members took a brief break to have some cake with the drivers in celebration of all they do for the district.

Ellicottville’s Nannen Arboretum sees cleanup work from CTE class By Deb Everts Thanks to the Natural Resources class at Ellicottville’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) Center, the Nannen Arboretum in Ellicottville is getting a good clean up and a fresh start for the spring and summer season. Instructor Dave Swaciak said his students in the junior class went to the arboretum behind Ellicottville’s town center May 8 to work on cleaning up the tree damage from the last two years. He planned to take the class back this week on Wednesday and Thursday to finish the job, weather permitting. “I guess what happened is they had winter tree damage from the previous year, then a tree care company came and removed some of the limbs and left them there,” he said. “So, we took care of the debris that was left there. We also did more pruning and helped with tree planting.” Using a wood chipper with a dump truck, climbing gear with ropes and harnesses, shovels, rakes and a chainsaw, the whole class of 16 students participated, including two girls. The students come from Cattaraugus-Little Valley, Springville-Griffith
Photo Submitted Juniors from the Natural Resources class at Ellicottville’s CTE center are cleaning up the Nannen Arboretum so visitors can enjoy its beauty this summer. Students (from left) Nick Mangano, Springville; Jake Cieszynski (blue shirt), Springville; Tom Vanderbosch (plaid shirt), Cattaraugus-Little Valley; Bill MacMillan, Nannen Arboretum, help plant Chamaecyparis.
and Franklinville high schools. “About half of my class is afraid of heights, but we need ground workers as well,” Swaciak said. “One of my best ground workers doesn’t like heights, but he knows all of his knots, and he’s very safe. He knows what to look for when the climber is up in the tree to help keep
the climber safe. So, everybody has a job, even if they are afraid of heights.” The students are using what they’ve learned in class and are applying the techniques to a reallife experience. Swaciak said they learned about tree climbing and the use of harnesses in October and November, then went over pruning in
February. During March, they learned how to use a chainsaw and, in April, they studied tree planting and soil testing. “So, this is kind of a culmination of a lot of the things they learned this year, and a nice final project for the year,” he said. Swaciak said this class activity is a type of internship for the
students because it’s off the premises and there are more requirements off campus. He said because they’re in the public eye, they have to be presentable. “One of the things I talk to the students about, especially when operating the wood chipper at the gate, is to be mindful of visitors who might be coming
to the town center or the arboretum,” he said. “The visitors come first and that’s something we don’t get when we’re working here at the CTE center. We don’t have the public coming and going, so that’s why it’s a good experience for them to get out and realize that they have to be presentable, they have to use good language and act professionally.” According to Swaciak, about half of his students go on to college for environmental sciences or forestry-related majors. Then, every year, he has a few students that go directly into tree work in arboriculture. He said there are a lot of jobs available in tree climbing. The student can graduate and go right to work. “You can get a job in arboriculture without being certified, but you can also work towards a certification,” he said. “Some of my students have graduated and done that. Having a BOCES diploma looks good on their resume.” The CTE center at Ellicottville is located at 5550 Route 242.

on. Pikachu is a universal character nowadays, so everything else can just be explained in the movie and not depend on audience members being super fans. Now, that’s not to say the life-long fans of Pokémon won’t be rewarded with dozens of Easter eggs referencing the games and TV show. Hardly a scene goes by where there’s isn’t some sort of wink and nod or a blatant mention of something that has happened in the games or show. But that’s not why people are going to see this movie. No, “Detective Pikachu” exists to show hundreds of different Pokémon in a realistic way and in a realistic setting. Most Pokémon are adorable, and that’s where a lot of the charm of the movie comes from. A lot of these creatures are the size of a dog or small child and are often just as cute. However, it’s Pikachu who really steals the show, primarily because of Reynolds as the voice. While Pikachu is obviously adorable, it’s Reynolds doing his usual schtick of riffing and joking like his Marvel character Deadpool that brings a lot of enjoyment to this character. Unfortunately, on the flip side of that, the human characters do not hold up their end of this film. The draw may be seeing Pokémon in real life, the people here should at least have some characterization to back up the story, or even act well. While not awful, Smith and Newton’s performances occasionally came across as stiff, awkward or just bad. But that’s OK because Pokémon has never been about the people and the story. It’s about the creatures themselves and how awesome they are. This world feels live-in and believable, with so many of the Pokémon filling roles that make sense. Ones that use water attacks help the firemen, ones that use fire attacks help the chefs and cooks, etc. By the end of the movie, I had seen exactly what I was hoping to see with the first live-action Pokémon movie: these creatures that have been a part of so many childhoods for decades existing with real people. I couldn’t ask for anything more.

Compost is part of the circle of life in gardens
The season for fresh fruits and vegetables grown right in the backyard is upon us. Warm weather breathes life into fresh berries, tomatoes, eggplant, cucumbers, and many other delectable fruits and vegetables. Home gardens can be supplemented with delicious finds from the supermarket or farmer’s market, including melons, corn and more. The bounty of the garden can be made more abundant and fruitful with the addition of the right soil amendments. Compost is a key element of rich, nutritious soil. Scraps from items that have been grown in the garden can then be reused in the production of the com-
post that feeds that same garden. It’s a continuous circle of garden life. Getting started with compost is relatively easy. Homeowners should choose an outdoor space near the garden but far away from the home so that it won’t be disturbed by kids or animals. Some people opt for an open compost pile, while others choose closed bins to contain the possible smell and to camouflage the compost. A sunny spot will help the compost to develop faster, according to Good Housekeeping. The next step is to start gathering the scraps and materials that will go into the compost. Better Homes and Gardens suggests keeping a bucket
or bin in the kitchen to accumulate kitchen scraps. Here are some kitchen-related items that can go into the compost material: • Eggshells • Fruit peels • Vegetable peels and scraps • Coffee grounds • Shredded newspaper In addition to these materials, grass and plant clippings, dry leaves, bark chips, straw, and sawdust from untreated wood can go into the pile. Avoid diseased plants, anything with animal fats, dairy products, and pet feces. A low-maintenance pile has an equal amount of brown and green plant matter in the compost plus moisture to keep
the bacteria growing and eating at the right rate. Aerating the compost occasionally, or turning the bin when possible, will allow the compost to blend and work together. Compost will take a few months to form com-
pletely, says the Planet Natural Research Center. The finished product will resemble a dark, crumbly soil that smells like fresh earth. Compost will not only add nutrients to garden soil, but also it can help
insulate plants and may prevent some weed growth. It is a good idea to start a compost pile as a free source of nutrition for plants and a method to reduce food waste in an environmentally sound way.

Photo by Sam Wilson Joined by her parents and high school swim coaches, Springville-Griffith Institute senior Elle Holland signed paperwork to attend the Rochester Institute of Technology, where she plans to swim for the Tigers, on Thursday.

By Sam Wilson After one of the most accomplished swim careers in school history, including three straight trips to the state championships, it’s time for Springville senior Elle Holland to move on to another path in the sport. Holland made her posthigh school plans official on Thursday, May 16, signing paperwork to attend the Rochester Institute of Technology, where she plans to join the Tigers’ women’s swimming and diving team. “I was a looking for a team that was just like a team I had before, one that was very family-oriented but filled with people that are ready to work hard and want to improve,” she said of her decision after a signing ceremony in the school library. “So at RIT, I found a good balance of both academically what I wanted to as well as that family atmosphere that I was looking for in a swim team.” And in meeting with the team and coaches, Holland
said she felt interested in more than just her ability as a swimmer. “I feel like the team was very into learning about me, not just knowing what I’m going to bring to the team as a swimmer, but what my hobbies were, what I like to do, what makes me who I am, not just me swimming,” she said. “And the coaches were also super-willing to work with me and help me get where I needed to be, solidify where I wanted to go to school and provide any resources that I needed during that tough decision time. So I really just fell in love with everything about that team.” Holland’s prep career included the three state final appearances, six individual event school records, three school record relays and at least three pool records in the Griffins’ home pool. She said her favorite memories include several small moments, and one big, unforgettable one. “I think my favorite memories are just the little moments I have with my
teammates,” she said. “My favorite memory is when I qualified for states the first time and everyone ran over to me and it was just super-awesome. I wish I could go back and picture it again because it was just so wonderful. That was probably my favorite memory, but just being with my friends and my teammates every day and working hard and trying to get the best we can be.” At RIT, Holland plans to study biotechnology and molecular bioscience. “Which is a mouthful,” she said. “But eventually I want to do work in genetics.” She also anticipates focusing on her top events, the 50-meter freestyle and 100-meter freestyle and backstroke at the more specialized college level. “We’re obviously very proud of her, not just for her swimming accomplishments but certainly academic accomplishments that got her into RIT,” said Heather Holland, Elle’s mother. “Her work ethic got her where
she is academically and athletically.” Holland swam six years on the varsity starting in seventh grade, but her coaches saw potential even before that. “In sixth grade when she was our manager, we could tell,” SGI head coach Karen Reynolds said. “She was already rising above then. She had started her career when she was seven years old and she was swimming real fast at that age and so it just wasn’t slowing down.” Administrators including athletic director Joseph DeMartino and principal James Bialasik spoke before the signing, as did Holland’s high school swim coaches, Reynolds and assistant Christy Komenda. “It’s a proud day for the swimming community here in Springville, both from boys and girls to the youth program,” Reynolds added. “It’s just a legacy that she’s leaving behind and people are going to remember Elle Holland and see her name, and see her banner and she is what swimming is all about. She is a great role model for kids coming up and so this is just a culmination event for her to put everything that she’s worked for together.” Komenda credited the senior’s talent and work ethic for getting her this far. “It was a natural talent for her and ability, and it’s nice because we have a lot of people that have natural talent and ability, but they lose the drive and the ambition,” Komenda said. “She didn’t lose that and just hungered for more to up her game or just listen for different tidbits for ‘How do I improve? What’s going to knock another tenth of a second off?’ That’s where that drive is.”

100-plus runners come out for annual Crouse 5K

resulting in slower than average course completion times. Taking first place, with a time of 18 minutes 3.6 seconds, was Josh Zubler. Coming in 1 minute and 52.1 seconds later, Christian Cook was second. Taking third, just 30 seconds later, was
The annual Crouse 5K Challenge run was held in Gowanda on May 19, beginning at the Gowanda American Legion Post 409. Due to the extreme weather conditions, the race turned out to be more challenging than usual
Dominik Rodriguez. Cook and Rodriguez are both currently active in the GCS athletics program. The first female finisher was Kristine Twoguns. In total 122 racers participated. The youngest being 3-year-old Mayson who, along with his brother, Marcus, were
passengers in a jogging stroller that was powered through the course by their mother, Shannon. The oldest participant was 71-year-old Peter Palmer, who came in at position 51. After the race, before awards were handed out in the pavilion at the legion, race organizer Jennifer Horth-Gernatt announced that this would be the last Crouse 5K that she would head up. She thanked all of the sponsors that have supported the event over the year and her family and friends who have been involved in helping her. The race was initially headed up by the Gowanda Area Chamber of Commerce after the idea of a race had been suggested as part of the former Pioneer Days event. She then mentioned
TY N A R R A W N I VETRA IL FETIME DRI UR PURCHASE WITH YO
that, at first, the race had 30-40 runners, adding “we’ve grown quite a bit.” After the first two years, the race evolved, changing the course and becoming the Crouse 5K Challenge. Horth-Gernatt indicated that the race was named after Dennis Crouse, her former business teacher, track and cross country coach, whom she respected and admired. As she concluded her comments she said it was “amazing to watch so many young athletes discover the love of running through this race” and noting that, over the years, the race had directed $15,000 back to student programs at GCS. Dennis Crouse spoke about working with Horth-Gernatt on the race over the years. He said he “couldn’t ask for a better
person to work with,” adding that, when she had asked him to help out, “how could I say no.” Crouse said there were four qualities that described Horth-Gernatt, all starting with “D”: Direction, Dedication, Drive and Determination. Using a track meet relay race analogy, Crouse said that a replacement for Horth-Gernatt was needed, someone to whom she could “pass on the baton.” It was obvious that the respect and admiration between the two went both ways. Having concluded his remarks, Crouse presented Horth-Gernatt with a bouquet of white roses as a parting gift. Complete race results can be found online at www.webscorer.com.
