National Recovery Month

On Saturday, September 1, Senator Fred Akshar joined families and community members to kick off National Recovery Month at the Tioga Allies in Substance Abuse Prevention (ASAP) Coalition’s 2nd Annual Family Fun Day at Marvin Park in Owego.

Number 9

Village of Owego Gets $10,000,000

The free community event featured food, inflatables, music, crafts, and games. Senator Akshar also announced $70,000 in state funding for additional youth addiction prevention and treatment services for Tioga County.

United Way Thanks the Gurals Governor Andrew Cuomo (above) gave $10 million to the Village of Owego last month as part of the state’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI). “This investment will unlock Owego’s true potential,” said Governor Cuomo. “Owego’s easily accessible, pedestrian-friendly downtown community makes it the ideal neighborhood for revitalization.”

Last month, the Tioga United Way held a press conference at Tioga Downs Casino Resort to thank Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Gural for their generosity and support of the United Way and our community. Last December, the Tioga United Way’s Dancing United with the Starz fundraiser took place at Tioga Downs, and the Gurals matched whatever was raised at the event. With the Gural’s help, the event brought in more than $100,000. “This singular donation is being distributed across all of our 34 wonderful agencies,” said Carolyn Palladino, Executive Director of Tioga United Way. “Some will use it to-

ward specific needs such as new freezers at our food pantries, appliances in our shelters, and books for our children. While others will use it toward updating electrical systems, staff and volunteer training, as well as new programming.” The Board of Directors of the Tioga United Way hope that the Gurals will recognize that their financial support stretches far and wide across Tioga County and that they are truly making a difference in the lives of those in need.

SCHOOL’S OPEN DRIVE SAFELY

The Village of Owego has not determined how the DRI money will be used. A Local Planning Committee will be formed and its meetings will be open to the public. Although the Village of Owego currently has no definite plans for the $10 million, ideas for possible projects were listed in the village’s DRI application and include: North Avenue revitalization, Lake Street pedestrian mall, River Walk expansion, River activities and river boat, Farmers Markets, Art District development, Restoration of firehouse and Tioga Theater, Owego Gardens II, School re-use, Parking garage, Passenger rail excursions, Marvin Park and fairgrounds upgrades, Tioga Downs-downtown shuttle, Ti-Ahwage Performing Arts Center expansion, Streetscape improvement, Minka Pocket community development, and Walking trails connector. How would you like to see the Village of Owego use the money to revitalize downtown Owego?

Learn about Ithaca’s early aircraft industry when James Rundle talks about “From Thomas Brothers Aeroplane Company to Thomas-Morse S4 Scout, 1910-18: The Origins of Ithaca’s Aircraft Industry” on Tuesday, September 18, at 7:00 pm, at The History Center in Tompkins County, 401 East State Street, Suite 100, in Ithaca. Rundle, a member of the Ithaca Aviation Heritage Foundation, will tell the story of how an aircraft industry arose in Ithaca, just before and during World War I, and how that

new industry produced the “Tommy,” an advanced trainer used by the U.S. Army to train U.S. pilots headed for France. Rundle’s talk is one of several events leading up to the September 29 flight at the Tompkins County Regional Airport of an original “Tommy” S-4B Scout, built in Ithaca in 1918 and recently restored by volunteers.

Candor Historical Society Seeks Donations for Building Renovation by Carol A. Henry The Candor Historical Society’s new Research Center is in need of major renovations. The Society obtained the historic Grange building, located at 25 Main Street, in April 2016, and has begun organizing files on various communities within the Town of Candor, historic buildings, major events, genealogy, newspaper clippings, photographs, displays, and much more. But in order for these to be available to the public for research, the building itself needs to be updated to make it more secure, handicapped accessible, and financially maintainable on a yearly basis. Therefore, the Historical Society is in need of your help. Funds in the form of donations are needed in order to achieve this renovation project. After a major assessment of the building was conducted by the Historical Society’s Building Committee and a representative from a New York Architectural/Engineering firm, a list of projects needing immediate attention was created. Included in this was insulation in various places

and new doors and windows to reduce heat loss; roof, gutters, eaves, and air space between buildings to prevent more rain damage; and siding replacement, to name a few. The Historical Society will be obtaining bids on the entire project, as well as apply for grants, but the need is great and grants will not cover the entire cost of the project. Therefore, the Historical Society is soliciting donations to be used specifically for this project. The Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) organization, therefore donations are tax deductible. To help fund this project, send checks to Candor Historical Society, PO Box 585, Candor, NY 13743, or visit candorhistoricalsociety.weebly. com and choose the “Donate” button. Be sure to specify that the money is for the Building Renovation Fund. Contractors interested in submitting bids for the project can contact Gary Henry (607-659-7661) or Roger Westgate (607-659-7769).

New York State is installing new crosswalk lights along Route 434 in Apalachin. This will allow pedestrians a safe crossing of Route 434 to where there is no reason to walk! In the meantime, the potholes on Route 434 are not being repaired. At least when the road becomes unsafe to drive because of the unrepaired potholes we can all walk safely!

You will learn how the Indians procured, prepared, and used these materials, and the importance of the arrow shaft to primitive survival. Participants will choose between using a flint point or

a metal trade point to tip their arrows, and between making either a plains style or eastern style arrow. Cost is $21 for NVHS members, $26 for non-members. Scholarships are available. All materials for making the arrow are provided. To register, call Leslie by October 19 at (607) 642-5412. For more information visit www.nvhistory.org.

Letter to the Editor

Clean Power August 24, 2018 Dear Editor, There have been recent articles supporting President Trump’s implementation of the “Affordable Clean Energy” (ACE) program. The supporters claim that Obama’s “Clean Power Plan” (CPP) would be too costly to implement and would destroy our balanced energy mix. Obama’s plan would have the Federal Government set the pollution levels where as Trump’s would allow the States to set their own levels. The production of electrical energy for our grid generates carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter. This is particularly true of burning coal. The sulfur and nitrogen molecules contribute to acid rain, the carbon dioxide to climate change and the particulates to

respiratory stress. We should remember that our atmosphere moves around the globe so that air pollutants produced in the mid-west make it to our East Coast and our East Coast pollutants make it across the Atlantic. Almost all life depends on this delicate air blanket. Abandoning Federal control to the States is the antithesis of what should be done. The reduction of gas efficiencies in motor vehicles is a step back as well. The implementation of the ACE program in lieu of the CPP will only increase our populations dependency on medical intervention; treatment in lieu of prevention.

The 10-week course includes a basic introduction to grammar, vocabulary, conversation, and writing, and costs $100 ($10/class). The class is appropriate for those new to Spanish or as a review for those who have previously studied Spanish. “Studying foreign languages is a rewarding experience and provides an opportunity for those who plan to travel to Spanish-speaking countries or want to engage and learn from Spanish-speaking cultures. Learning a foreign language also improves cognitive skills and understanding of one’s native language and, according to scientific research, may help delay Alzheimer’s and dementia,” said Erin Riddle, the class instructor. “There are many benefits and rewards to learning a foreign language, and my goal is to make the learning rewarding and fun.” Each class will last an hour (6:30 to 7:30 pm) running from Monday, September 10 to Monday, November 12. Participants will meet once a week and complete assignments independently between classes to build their knowledge about the Spanish language and Spanishspeaking cultures. “We are excited to offer this oppor-

tunity,” said Kim Cerratini, owner of Las Chicas Tacqueria. “We not only serve food and drinks, but also provide an opportunity for people to gather, share, and learn in a variety of ways for self-improvement and community engagement. This seems like a perfect fit for all involved.” Las Chicas, located on Front Street in Owego, is a West Coast style taco shop serving tacos, burritos, enchiladas, appetizers, and much more. Students are responsible for purchasing their food and drinks. Visit www.laschicasowego. com to learn more and view a complete menu. Erin Riddle has over ten years of experience teaching, primarily in higher education. She also owns a local business that offers a variety of language services, including instruction, translation, editing, writing, and tutoring. She earned a PhD in Translation Studies and MA in Comparative Literature from Binghamton University and a BA from Ithaca College in German Language and Literature, minoring in Spanish Language and Literature and Art History.

BEARCAT SCANNER

The Candor Historical Society is pleased to announce their September 26th program by Richard Quest, author of “I Held Lincoln.” The program will take place at the Candor Fire Station on Owego Road at 7:00 pm. While teaching Social Studies at Candor several years ago, Mr. Quest became interested in the story of Lt. Benjamin Loring of Owego, whose bloodstained Union frock coat was on display at the Tioga County Historical Society. Loring supposedly wore the coat when he rushed to President Lincoln’s aid the night he was fatally shot at Ford’s Theater. Mr. Quest was able to track down descendants of Loring who had Loring’s diaries about his life as a sailor during the Civil War. Lt. Loring was captured by the Confederates twice, managing to escape both times, and was at Ford’s Theater the night of Lincoln’s assassination. Following up on the diaries with years of research, Quest has used the information to write a fascinating account of Loring’s life. In presenting this thrilling story, Quest makes the events come to life in such a way that the listener feels that

Statement from Senator Fred Akshar “Governor Cuomo should absolutely apologize for his statement that America ‘was never that great.’ It’s insulting to the generations of Americans who together have worked for, fought for, bled for and died for the freedoms we are blessed to enjoy today. Loving one’s country is not a Re-

publican or Democrat issue. Throughout its history, America, despite its shortcomings, has continued to stand as exceptional amongst its peers. There’s something inherently wrong with elected leaders asserting that the country we are so fortunate to live in was ‘never that great.”

Pack Healthy Lunches for Kids Tips from the American Heart Association to help your child stay healthy at school

It’s time to head back to school! Packing the kids’ lunches for school means you have control over which foods they are eating. Parents can manage nutritious meals even when the kids are at school. Here are some budget-friendly, creative ideas from the American Heart Association to help keep kids happy and healthy at lunchtime: Make a Smarter Sandwich While some kids prefer the same thing every day, many kids want variety in their lunches. Sandwiches are easy, portable and kid-friendly. • Use different breads like 100% whole -wheat tortilla wraps (choose wraps low in saturated fat and made with no hydrogenated oils) or 100% whole-wheat pita pockets. • In addition to lettuce and tomato, try shredded carrot or zucchini and sliced cucumbers, peppers, or apple or pear with a turkey sandwich. • Try avocado or hummus as a swap for cheese or mayo. • Try a leftover grilled chicken in your sandwich as a healthy swap for lunch meat. Love those Leftovers Think about using the leftovers from a family favorite dinner for a next day lunch. Use a thermos to keep foods hot or cold until the lunch bell rings. The prepared/packaged versions of these foods sometimes have a lot of sodium, so make them homemade with little or no salt, or compare nutrition facts of similar products and choose the ones with less sodium. • Soup - tomato, vegetable or bean • Chili (vegetarian or made with lean or extra lean ground chicken)

• Spaghetti or curly pasta salad (whole wheat with veggies and chicken added) • Bean casserole or beans & rice with vegetables. Let Them Dunk Sometimes it’s OK to let your kids play with their food, especially when they are getting extra nutrition. Try packing one of these fun dunks with dippers: • Apple and pear slices to dip into lowfat plain yogurt or peanut butter. Cortland, Empire, and Ginger Gold apples brown at a slower rate than other apples. • Carrot, celery and sweet pepper strips to dip into hummus, fresh salsa or homemade bean dip. • Whole-grain, low-sodium, low-fat crackers or slices of grilled tofu (a soybean product) to dunk into soup. Avoid packing sugary drinks like “power” drinks, soda, or sugar-added juices to your kids’ lunchboxes, or home meals. Water or school purchased milk are great options to reduce sugar in the diet. Let the crunchy snacks be fruit or cut veggies, not fried, fatty chips. Get Them Involved When kids help pack their lunches, they’re more likely to eat that lunch! On nights you have a bit more time, like a Sunday night, have them choose which piece of fruit or what type of whole grain bread they want and let them assemble their lunch. Make this a weekly routine – it’s another great way to spend family time together. Additional Resources: Get more tips at www.heart.org/ healthyforgood

ANE EAMLESS Spencer Portararo (Photo by Jeff Stere)

By Jason Bonsignore Owego - August 18, 2018 - Another rainy race day in Owego, NY hampered the crowd at Champion Speedway in the evening but the track staff worked hard to save the surface and soldiered on with a smooth track and well-run program that concluded by 9:15pm. In the Scratch portion of the event it was Casey Donholt, Jeremy Parsons, Adam Mittl and Len McBride who looked the strongest early on and would make it through the semifinals to earn births in the Main. Young Spencer Portararo, of Newark Valley, took home the win in the last chance to earn the final starting position in the feature. Donholt would once again use his starting line skills to get the gate and lead into turn one. He would end up running a perfect 4 laps to take his 6th scratch Main win of the season on his Sammy Tanner Arai Helmets sponsored Jawa! Mittl, would again finish second with Portararo third, Parsons fourth and Len McBride, who was struggling with a lost shock mount, fifth. When the handicap Main blasted off it was the up and coming Portararo, from the 30 yard line, who was ready to make his mark. Despite extreme pressure from Mittl for the last 4 laps, he hung on the pole and rode a mistake free final taking his first Main Event win of the 2018 season on his TnT Welding sponsored machine! Mittl would also grab second in this race. Parsons, who was fast on the night, took third! Don Tonkin held off the charges of young Dylan Hawk to take the checkered flag in the Quad Pro final while Hunter Singer and Jimmer Ulrich battled hard for the Quad Am feature, with Singer scoring the victory by a small margin! The track is now gearing up for the biggest event of the year, the 2Day US Open National Championships, Sept 1 and 2! The event is gaining a lot of interest across the Country and as of this going to press there was a huge field of speedway riders committed along with some notable speedway personalities from around the Country. The Current US National Champion and 8-time Title Holder, Billy Janniro, of Auburn,

California, is slated to race, along with fellow Californian’s Dillon Ruml, Aaron Fox and Russell Green. Ruml has been super hot this season out West and is a member of TEAM USA in the World Team Cup. Fox, is a two-time US National Champion and former British League rider. Green has ridden overseas as well. Representing Florida will be former UK League rider, David Meldrum. Three riders will represent Colorado . . . veterans David and Kenny Pieper and up and rising ace Redmond Bohannon. The State of PA will be represented by its number one rider Jesse Diem while the top five local riders will likely be Donholt, Mittl, McBride, Parsons and Mikey Buman. David Oakden and Dan Oakden will be strong representation for Rochester! A host of other local competitors will be taking part and Levi Leutz, a top JR rider from the West Coast will also be on hand. Gates open September 1 at 4pm and at 3pm on September 2. More information can be had at eastcoastspeedway.com Aug 18 Champion Speedway Results Scratch Main 1. Casey Donholt 2. Adam Mittl 3.

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, Residents of Tioga and Chemung of New York as well as residents of Bradford, PA may have noticed the recent heavy rains as well as recording-breaking temperatures that are being felt in the entire East Coast. Due to extremely dry conditions in California they are experiencing record breaking forest fires. There is also extreme weather in Europe and Australia. The scientists that record data (factual info) claim that this is due to our atmospheric increase in Carbon Dioxide as well as Methane. These are two gases that have increased due to the industrial revolution. Methane is both natural and man-made and remains more than 20 times more damaging to global warming when compared to Carbon Dioxide. Carbon Dioxide is the major molecule adding to the earth’s rise in temperature and we humans

are the major cause of it as we live in a highly energy-demanding society. The burning of fossil fuels like coal and oil as well as gas generate lots of these molecules. What we have and are continuing to experience with respect to changing weather is going to continue with greater unpredictability with each passing day as carbon dioxide levels continue to increase along with global temperatures. The greatest threat to all of the earth’s population is going to be the melting of the polar ice caps generating rising ocean levels that will flood coastal cities and create millions of refugees with no place to go to. 8/17/18 Respectfully submitted, Marty Borko Waverly, NY

On the night of August 14, we drove home from the ABBA concert at the Anderson Center but were stopped on Pennsylvania Avenue and told that we needed to take a detour. “The roads up ahead are bad and the church on the corner....,” said one of the firemen redirecting traffic. “That’s my church!” said my husband, Pete Darling, pastor of Faith Christian Fellowship church on the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and Beach Road. The fireman allowed us to continue on Pennsylvania Avenue to see that it was completely engulfed in water rushing down from Deerlick Creek. Our hearts sank. We’d just been through a tremendous cleanup and recovery in 2011. We continued home and arrived the next morning, to a parking filled with creek rocks, mud and a pile of brush. We walked over the one open door that was off its hinge, look around and said, “This isn’t bad compared to last time.” In 2011, it looked like someone had stirred a huge bowl of brownie mix and tossed in furniture. Creek water filled the basement from floor to ceiling with 3 feet on the main floor, leaving 6 inches to a foot or two of fudge-like mud. People who came were shocked and said they’d never seen anything like it anywhere. Earlier that evening on the way to the concert the creek was low compared to other creeks that were nearing the tops of their banks. After 2011, lots of work had been done on the creek to make sure that flooding didn’t happen again. It was dug out deeper, lined with riprap, a higher bank was built with boulders on top and small trees and brush had grown up on it. However, the sheer volume of water shifted the flow of the creek into the parking lot and into the church again. This time we walked into what looked like a thick carpet of soupy-

like mud with most of the furniture still intact, with one foot water marks on the walls. The basement had 3 feet of water. Even though it was devastating, it was doable. We’re pros at this. Here we go again! At least my husband didn’t have to use a chain saw to cut up 13 trees that smashed into the front of the church, including a long, large one that was inside the fellowship hall. People from our church, other churches and the community came to help, including two families with children. The furniture was salvageable this time and we began cleaning that and shoveling out mud. The creek gouged out the side yard and the outer wall of the church became the new creek bank. An excavator came on the first day to move stones to divert the creek back where it belonged and then bull dozing to fill in the missing yard, so we’re making progress. Everything is cleaned up except for fine cleaning, redoing some walls and putting in new flooring. We can’t thank all of our volunteers enough for their help. What a wonderful community of people we have. We are blessed. More ironclad efforts need to be done on the creek and property so this really doesn’t ever happen again. We have a Go Fund Me page for people to contribute to so that our church and, ultimately, surrounding homes in the neighborhood don’t have to deal with future flooding. Contributions can also be made at the address below. https://www.gofundme.com/fcfapalachin-2018-flood-recovery? u=19481506 Faith Christian Fellowship 27 Beach Rd. Apalachin, NY 13732
