Ornament features Fireman's Memorial

The second in a series of Owego Kiwanis Ornament which feature Owego scenes is now available. The 2013 ornament features the Fireman's Memorial Statue which sits atop the Baker Memorial Fountain in courthouse square in downtown Owego. The fountain and statue were given to the village in 1914 by Frank Baker in memory of his son, former fire chief George H. Baker. In July 2000, the fountain was re-dedicated after it was repaired and restored. The ornament can be purchased

through Kiwanis Club members, VanHorn Jewelers on Lake Street, Community Bank (Owego Office), and Tioga State Bank (Fifth Avenue Office) in Owego. The ornament costs $20 which includes a display case. All profits are returned to help the children of the community. VanHorn Jewelers has offered to include, at no charge, name and date engraving if desired. Hurry, the ornaments won't last long!

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, I was very leery of the Clean Indoor Air Act when it was first made law. Now I am a huge fan of the law! The negative impact of smoke in a restaurant is gone! Cleaner smell, walls and fur-

nishings. WOW! Even the food smells and tastes better. Thanks for cleaning up my act with the Clean Indoor Air Act!! Sincerely, Thomas J Bailey, Apalachin

"Harvey" to be Performed in Owego The comedy "Harvey," will be performed by the Ti-Ahwaga Players in Owego on October 4, 5, 6, October 11, 12, 13, and October 18, 19, 20. "Harvey" by Mary Chase is a charming and uplifting comedy about one of theater’s most lovable characters, Elwood P. Dowd, and his steadfast friendship with a six-foot-three-and-ahalf-inches-tall, invisible white rabbit named Harvey. Elwood introduces Harvey to everyone he meets, which embarrasses his social-climbing sister, Veta, who tries to have him committed to a sanitarium. A comedy of errors ensues, though, when Veta is accidentally committed instead.

Performances of "Harvey" will take place at 8:00 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 2:00 pm on Sundays. General admission is $18; Fridays, students with IDs, $10; and Sundays, seniors (60+), $15. The Ti-Ahwaga Community Players, Inc. is a non-profit community theater organization and the players have staged at least one show a year since 1959. The Ti-Ahwaga Performing Arts Center is at 42 Delphine Street in Owego. The center seats 156 people in the cabaret-style theatre at tables for two or four. For tickets, call (607) 687-2130, or go to www.tiahwaga.com.

On August 3, 2013, the Tioga County Tourism Office hosted the 11th Annual Bike Tioga, an event designed to promote healthy living while displaying the county’s natural beauty and local businesses. Bike Tioga is not a race; riders were encouraged to stop along the way and take their time. Picnic lunches and local farms have been popular stops in the past, and the event has always emphasized a relaxed, fun environment. This year’s rides were 25, 40, 63, and 104 miles with various elevations through flat and hilly countryside. The longest route, “Cornell Farms Ride,” circled up to the Cornell Plantations and Farms on Daisy Hollow Road and returned via Irish Settlement Road. After cycling 104 miles, participants received an official Tioga Tourism certificate commemorating their physical fitness

achievement. “The event attracted many visitors to the area,” said Emily VanScoy, the Americorps service member who coordinated the event with Tioga Tourism. “Out of 115 participants, 79 cyclists were from outside Tioga County and 14 were out of state.” Cyclists commented on the natural beauty of the county, which was made even better by the cooperative weather. Beautiful clear skies with just the right amount of wind— enough to keep cyclists cool, but not enough to make the ride more difficult—gave the whole day an exciting air. The participants also took advantage of the Body Lab massage therapists who were on-site. The free 10-minute massages were an especially big hit with the 104-mile riders.

Millville Mutual now writes homeowners in New York The OA Foundation for Excellence in Education was established in the spring of 1997. We are a community wide, independent, not-for-profit organization. The Foundation’s mission is to enhance the education of the students within the Owego Apalachin District boundaries, public and non-public, by providing private funding and stimulating community support for innovative and challenging programs. On May 1, 2013, the Foundation sponsored its Annual Grant Awards reception, hosted this year by Owego Free Academy School. The 21 grant recipients were awarded a combined total of $9,908.90. I’m excited to report that we now have given back to the community $105,224.36 in grants alone! This year’s grants will help educators and directors from several organizations within the district implement innovative programs for our children. Grants were awarded broaden musical horizons with instruments and composition; to supply telescopes for the astronomy club, and hands on science learning experiences in the primary grades. Grants were awarded for storytelling opportunities, genre studies, and technology connections in English Language Arts. We also awarded grants for a community gardening, child friendly nutrition and plyometric programs, and character education programs. In 2002 we started a scholarship program for graduating seniors continuing their education in a youth oriented field. In 2004 the Marzo family asked us to be trustees to a scholarship in memory of Joseph N. Marzo. As of this May we will have given out 43 scholarships in the past eight years for a total of $21,500. We have also given special donations of $3,000 in $1,000 increments to the OACSD Pool, the OFA/OAMS school sign and the Owego Elks Club for flood relief. Just under $130,000 back to the Owego and Apalachin communities! Over the past 12 years it has been rewarding to see the community unite to bring innovative programs to our children. We would like to thank those individuals, organizations and businesses that have made our mission possible. I’d also like to thank all those who have worked so tirelessly for the

Foundation. We look forward to continuing to achieve our goals with the support of the community. Please visit our website www.OAFoundation.com for more information.

In an industry comprised of over 100,000 firms, Larson Design Group’s placement on the list means it’s one of the 100 fastest-growing A/E firms in the nation, and has thrived at a time when

many have struggled. Recognition as a Hot Firm is based on percentage revenue growth and dollar revenue growth over a three-year period as compared to the other entrants. Headquartered in Williamsport, recent years have seen tremendous growth for LDG. With new offices in San Antonio, TX; Pittsburgh, PA; and Morgantown, WV, LDG now has ten offices in four states and over 260 employees.

A MESSAGE FROM ADAM SCHUMACHER, Candidate for Tioga County District Attorney I am a lifelong resident of Tioga County, having returned to the area in 1991 after graduation from college and law school. I have worked hard and utilized my knowledge, continuously serving our community through my employment at the District Attorney’s Office in addition to running my private practice in Owego. I have learned first-hand what is important to the citizens of our County. Through community involvement, I have represented many people in various situations requiring my legal expertise. I have developed a reputation as being honest, firm, and fair. In 2012, Jerry Keene was elected Tioga County Court Judge, leaving a vacancy at the District Attorney’s Office. Since that time, I have worked part time as the 1st Assistant District Attorney, building upon twelve years’ experience as an Assistant District Attorney. In March of this year, I announced my candidacy for District Attorney, and now I am asking for your support in the upcoming primary election! I could provide you with an extensive list of my supporters and friends as many politicians do at election time. However, I encourage you to talk to the multitude of people throughout the county who have interacted with me over the years to learn more about my character and qualifications. I believe this is the most accurate measure of my capacity to serve in this important position. I never quit in the middle of a job I accepted. I’ve never resigned because something better came along. You can count on me to fulfill my obligations as your District Attorney. Be assured that as your next County District Attorney, I will only involve myself in activities as outlined in the guidelines set forth by the District Attorneys Association of the State of New York handbook, “The Right Thing,” Ethical Guidelines for Prosecutors, 2012. Activities which are described as “reasonable and ethical, and are consistent with the impartiality of the District Attorney’s office,” and which “also help District Attorneys maintain a sense of public confidence in the non-partisan nature of the District Attorney’s office.” With your support, I hope to become your County District Attorney. Please remember to vote in the Primary Election on Tuesday, September 10th. Thank you!

Families of veterans are asked to identify deceased veterans who were POWs and MIAs and veterans still living who were POWs for the vigil ceremony and for a Tioga County POW/MIA Tribute Plaque. This POW/MIA information has to be redone since it was lost in the September 2011 flood. Email contact information to VFW Post 1371 Memorial Day Chairman jraftis2@stny.rr.com. GOLD STAR MOTHERS DAY SUNDAY, SEPT. 29 In 1936, Congress designated the last Sunday in September as "Gold Star Mother's Day." On this day, we honor the mothers and families of fallen service members. In the 2012 Presidential Proclamation for Gold Star Mother's and Family's Day, President Obama stated, "As a grateful Nation honors our fallen service members, so do we honor the families who keep their memory burning bright. … as fellow Americans, we must lend our strength to those families who have given so much for our country. Their burdens are ones that no one should have to bear alone, and it is up to all of us to live our lives in a way worthy of their sacrifice." The term "gold star mother" dates back to World War I and refers to the service banner that was displayed in the window of the service member's home - the banner had a blue star for a family member who was in service, and a gold star for one who was killed.

A Soap Making class with Kathy Brennan will be held on Saturday, September 14, from 11:00 am to 3:30 pm at the Bement-Billings Homestead Farmstead Museum Welcome Center, 9241 State Rt. 38 in Newark Valley. Participants will make soap, and go home with fifteen bars of wonderful homemade soap and a thorough understanding of how to turn clarified fat into soap, its history and potential additives. . Soap, that product that we all take for granted, has quite an interesting history. It was discovered accidentally centuries ago by the civilizations who believed in sacrifices! Over the centuries, mankind has improved upon the technique until we now have the fine quality of homemade soap today. At one time people were even considered to be witches if found with soap. Other times, it be-

came so rare that the soap "alternative", detergent, was invented. Nineteen years ago, Kathy Brennan started Berkshire Hill Soap Works by researching the history and process of soap making to demonstrate for the Newark Valley Historical Society's Apple Festival, other festivals, shows and demonstrations. One can find the Berkshire Hills soap in a number of stores and by ordering soap and soap making supplies on-line. Visit at: www.hstrialberkshirehillsso.homestead.com/ index.html The cost is $35.00/$32 NVHS members. Scholarships available. Participants must pre-register by September 7.
