Bear Hunt Nostalgia

V. Paul Reynolds The Maine bear hunt is on! Unless you are an agitator with the Humane Society of the United States, this is a good story, a good hunt, and a good time of year. The weather in early September is splendid. Excited hunters come from all corners of the country to harvest a Maine black bear. If they are lucky they’ll go home with a one-of-a-kind rug and, if the meat is cared for, a cooler of delicious, lean wild meat. Guides and outfitters will pick up a few bucks. So will Maine’s rural economy, especially the gas stations and mom and pop stores. State bear biologists will gather bear management data, and the modest bear harvest will help stabilize our mushrooming bear population. There was a period in my life, and my wife’s, when we were serious bear hunters. We did the weekly

baiting with stale donuts and fryer grease procured from local businesses. We hauled and put up multiple tree stands on the edges of dark and swampy firchoked thickets. We both loved it, especially Diane. She killed a bear and we ate it all. The bear burger in the spaghetti and lasagna was special. I never did kill a Maine black bear, but I watched a few from tree stands. What a kick! One afternoon a big sow and three cubs showed up at my bait site. Momma bear ate a few old donuts and then backed off to make room for the cubs. When the youngsters got piggish at the bait the sow clicked her teeth and the cubs scampered off only to return at Momma’s signal. On another occasion, just before dusk, a small male bear materialized before my eyes by the bait site. It looked up at me. I froze. Then he relaxed and went at the grub. “Should I or shouldn’t I put his lights out?” In the scope I saw that his ears were big and his head small: a youngster. I didn’t have the heart to send a .50 caliber muzzle loading sabot his way. Once in Labrador, as camp manager, it was

my job to dispatch an old rogue boar that was scaring the sports and refusing to leave the vicinity of the cook house. (We had permits for such encounters). Terminating the old bruin was just something that had to be done. I would rather have shooed him off, but he was not shy. Diane and I cherish our memories of days at bear camp. The routine was a pleasant one. A big meal at mid-day, topped off with homemade blackberry pie. Then we camoed up and headed for our respective tree stands. A late afternoon vigil in the September woods, waiting and watching for that black form to suddenly appear, tends to keep you awake, even with a too-full tummy. At dusk in the dank firthickets, climbing down from the tree stand and putting both feet on the ground in known bear

country is also an exhilarating experience. Bear guides tell stories of having to retrieve a client from a tree stand who just couldn’t quite bring himself to descend the ladder in marginal light. I guess that it was all the preparatory work that brought our bear hunt days to an end. Today, we still miss the bear camp regimen, the weather, the food, the company and hunt anticipation. We may try it again one day, as long as we can still clamber up a tree stand or find an outlet that will furnish us with old donuts and fryer grease. Or maybe we will just go to bear camp, pick blackberries, eat a fullcourse meal at mid-day, and watch the fading September sun angle its way down amid the blushing swamp maples and jagged fir thickets. n

Email Flows John McDonald

The flow of e-mails over the transom here at Storyteller Central has slowed a bit now that our summer visitors‚ (sometimes known affectionately in town as “summer complaints) have packed up and gone home. But people from away are still sending e-mails to me, hoping get answers to one question or another. For example Peter from Virginia e-mailed: “John, We’ve been staying a few weeks in a nice cottage on the grounds of a resort on the coast. While here we first want you to know

how much we enjoyed reading your column in the weekly newspaper. After reading a few of your pieces we thought you’d probably be able to answer a question for us. Several tourist brochures we’ve seen boast that Maine is a fourseason resort‚ yet people we’ve met and talked to, people who live here year-round chuckle, at the idea. Who’s right? Is Maine a four-season resort or isn’t it?� Thanks for the e-mail Peter. I think I’ve seen some of those brochures that boast of our mythical four seasons‚ but after living year-round in Maine for as long as I have I only wonder where these people learned to count. Here in the USA we

have freedom of speech and that freedom even extends to our tourist promotion people. You can say - for tourist promotion purposes - that Maine has four seasons. But in fairness you should quickly mention that it is possible to get snowed on in at least three maybe even four of thoe seasons. Then, of course, there’s “mud season,� for which no use has yet to be found. I can hear some of you now: “John, are you serious? Snow in four out of four seasons?� Listen, here in Maine many of us haven’t trusted the weather ever since the infamous winter of 1816, a year still known in these parts as “The year without a summer.� “Are you serious, John, 1816? It’s time to give it a

rest - 1816 was over 185 years ago!� I hear some of you saying. Yes it was a while ago, but some of us still enjoy talking about it Here in Maine we learn in history about the year 1816 and how here in the northeastern United States and southeastern Canada there was a killing frost and bad snow storms in all twelve months. Trying to explain the abnormal weather some quacks‚ of the time - yes, they had quacks back then, too - tried to blame the cold weather on poor Ben Franklin and his slick new invention, the lightening rod, that was being installed on top of barns and houses all over the place. As these quacks saw it, lightening was made

up of intense heat, Ben’s new invention was interfering with the life of lightening, therefore Ben and Ben alone was most likely responsible for all the heat being lost. Later, when we learned a little more about this crazy planet, it was thought that the cold weather - more than likely - was caused by a number of large volcanic eruptions that occurred on the other side of the world in 1814-1815 in places like the Philippines and Indonesia. I know it’s a longwinded answer to a simple question, Peter, but sometimes there’s no way around it. In a related e-mail, Will from Newport writes: “John, we’ve just retired to Maine and will

be spending our first fall here. What do people around here do in the fall?� Thanks for the e-mail, Will. Most new arrivals like you spend a lot of time in early fall wondering things like: What ever happened to summer? Once you’ve more or less dealt with that question you can get down to doing what you probably should have been doing in the first place: Wondering if you’ve done everything necessary to get ready for winter, which is bearing down on our state like a runaway freight train. Hope you have a nice fall and are all ready when the first snow arrives, which will most likely be sooner than we think. n

Nutrition Advice for Those With Lyme Disease Jodi Cornelio

Lyme disease – Proper Nutrition Can Help You Feel Better We have all heard the horror story of Lyme disease and hopefully we are all taking preventative precautions to avoid ticks. If you have had an unfortunate run in with a tick and have be affected by this disease there are specific nutritional precautions that you can take to help you feel better and protect and enhance your immune system. Simply put, Lyme disease is a bacterium that impacts your immune system, if caught early enough it can be destroyed with antibiotics and proper nutrition can help. Here are some simple nutrition steps to focus on if diagnosed with Lyme disease. Avoid the following

foods: Glutens – Some bacteria thrive on glutens. Gluten is found in wheat, rye, barley, some processed oats and any food made with these grains. Wheat-based flours, pasta, couscous, bread, flour tortillas, muffins, cereal, crackers, beer, some oats and most pastries commonly contain gluten. Some unexpected foods containing gluten are broths, can soups, bouillon cubes, breadcrumbs, croutons, fried foods, imitation fish, lunch meats, hot dogs, malt, matzo, modified food starch, some seasonings, some salad dressing, soy sauce, pasta. There are many additives that have gluten in them as well. Beware of sauces, gravies and seasoned products and basically foods that are in cans or packages. It is always beneficial to check the label or ingredient list on foods before eating them. The label “wheat-free� does not always mean that the foods are gluten free. If there are any concerns or questions,

contact the manufacturer to be positive that there is no gluten in the food items. While pure oats are gluten free, many commercially processed oats have been contaminated by wheat products containing gluten. It is often recommended to avoid oats if gluten-free eating is required. Sugars – minimize or avoid sugars especially if on an antibiotic drug. Sugars can hurt good bacteria’s in the body and breed bad bacteria’s. When reading food labels look for words ending in OSE such as sucralose and high fructose corn syrup. Avoid artificial sweeteners as they are just plain not wise choices and, our bodies were not designed to digest these types of manufactured products. Dairy products – Milk

and cheeses and yogurt contain lactose and some bacteria thrive on that too. If taking an antibiotic the calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc found in these foods and in calcium enrich juices and vitamins can bind to the antibiotic and make it less effective. Read the label or ask your pharmacist for a list when in doubt. Yogurt can fool us. When on an antibiotic we are coached to eat yogurt to avoid yeast infections or other digestive upsets. Make sure it has active digestive cultures such as Acidophilus and no sugar added. Beware that calcium and lactose bind with the antibiotic making it less effective so you may choose to stay on the safe side and take an acidophilus supple-

ment or a pro-biotic supplement that contains 10 – 25 billion CFU s. Alcohol – A drink a day or one glass of wine may be good for the heart and I hate to be the barer of bad news but the fact is alcohol is converted to sugar in the body and it simply not good at building the immune system in this case. Do’s Now that I have taken all the fun out of foods, what can you eat? The answer is. You can eat whole foods in their natural state. Prepare your own food as much as possible. Fresh or frozen vegetables, all meats and good fats like olive oil. Examples of foods to eat are; beans, seeds and nuts in their natural, unprocessed form, fresh eggs, fresh red meats, fish and poultry (not

breaded, batter-coated or marinated), all fruits and vegetables. Gluten free flours are; Amaranth, Arrowroot, Buckwheat, Corn and cornmeal, Flax, Rice flour, Potato flour, Hominy, Millet, Quinoa... And as always get plenty of rest, drink plenty of water, exercise everyday moderately and try to avoid stress. Yoga is a good outlet and great for the nervous and immune system. Live Long, Live well.

The Leeds Line By Debbie Hite

Caught once again by the deadline, but I don’t have much this month to report. Hope those of you with kids in school have a smooth transition from summer to fall. Check those back packs and the District website www.rsu52.us for upcoming important dates such as picture day and open house. If you have a stu-

dent at Leavitt, you can also access the daily announcements from the website. Click on Leavitt and take it from there. After a couple years of little or no increases, the new mil rate for Leeds has been set at 16.35, up from the previous 15.80. For those new to the process, this means that a property owner will pay $16.35 for every $1000 of property valuation. Tax bills will go out around Sept. 9, with payments due Nov. 4 and May 4. The recent informational meeting about forming

an emergency medical response team for Leeds in collaboration with Turner Rescue brought out enough potential volunteers that Chief Toby Martin will schedule the training sessions. If you couldn’t attend the meeting but are interested in more information, please contact committee chair Vicky Wiegman at 5243195 or vwiegman@fairpoint.net Enjoy these last summer days. We all know what’s coming. Thanks for reading The Leeds Line. n

Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice Opened a New Drop-off site Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice (AHCH) opened a new Drop-off site for staff in Manchester in July. This new location will enhance AHCH’s efficiency to provide high quality home care, home hospice care and supportive care services to our patients throughout the greater Augusta area. “This site provides staff a time effective base close to their patients that is safe, efficient, and insures that our staff is able to spend the necessary time with their patient by eliminating travel time back and forth to our Agency’s central location in Lewiston,” shares Julie Shackley, President and CEO. Earlier this year, Androscoggin Home Care and Hospice’s Norway office moved into a new space

in the The Golden Arch building and expanded their Bridgton office, based out of the Bridgton Hospital, to provide staff with a more efficient and effective work environment. “With the addition of the new location and recent office expansion, our Agency has positioned itself to ensure that we can continue to provide the best care possible for our patients and their families throughout our service area,” shares Brenda Czado, Director of Home Care services. With 432 staff and 280 volunteers, AHCH provides care and support to residents in 122 municipalities, plantations and unorganized territories encompassing Androscoggin, Oxford, Franklin, northern Cumberland, and western

Kennebec County as well as bordering communities in Sagadahoc and Somerset counties. Last year, Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice cared for 10,020 people. Of the patients served, 6,184 received skilled home care, 140 received Supportive Care services, 1,310 received hospice care and 2,100 were served by our Community Care Team. AHCH’s expansion into the Augusta community along with their other locations in Bridgton, Lewiston, Norway, Wilton, Hospice House in Auburn and a drop-off site in Rumford allows the agency to be close to the patients and families they serve. Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice is a nonprofit Medicare-certified agency that provides pa-

tient centered care that is meaningful, organized, developed, effective/efficient and has lasting quality. They provide specialized skilled, supportive and hospice services to Maine residents and their families in the comfort of their home and community. In 2005 they opened Maine’s first in-patient hospice facility in Auburn – this year, they are recognizing 10 years of caring and compassion at the Hospice House. In 2014, Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice cared for over 10,200 patients and their families, providing more than 1.2 million in free care to those in need.

Missing Flag Creating Mystery at Turner Highlands There has been an on going mystery through out the summer at Turner Highlands golf course. Earlier this year a flag from the Turner Highlands disappeared. The flag has since been spotted at various places, often with popular PGA golfers and even NBC's Today Show host Matt Lauer. Each May the Turner Highlands club holds a tournament to raise money for a scholarship fund created for young members that are continuing they're education beyond high school. A few days after the scholarship tournament last May, a red flag from the 17th hole disappeared. Course co-owner George Chiasson was not happy, and at the time had put the word out he would like who ever took the flag to return it, or at least return the pole it was hanging from. Then a few weeks after the red Turner Highlands flag disappeared, the flag was spotted, on Facebook. In early June the flag appeared on Facebook with its own page, listed as 'Turnah Flag'. A photo with a post by the 'Turnah Flag' stated, “My last day at work. I quit a few weeks ago and made my escape. I'm off to find new adventures. Good bye Turner Highlands.” And the mystery began. Word began to circulate around the course of the missing Red Flag. There were reports circulating

that a red flag was spotted in a black convertible at the Highlands around that time. The course owners were quizzed daily on who had the flag, but they had no answers. Chiasson just continued to say he wanted his flag stick back. Then one of the club members reportedly had contact with the Turnah Flag on Facebook. She was told the Flag was going to return eventually in time for the next Scholarship Tournament, with hopes of raising money for the scholarship fund. Of course the person making contact with the flag became a 'suspect'. She has denied having any knowledge of the flag's where abouts, but remains a 'person of interest'. There have been no other direct communications reported with 'Turnah Flag'. The flag has not responded to my efforts to talk. Course co-owner Donna Chiasson has not been able to determine the flag's identity, but hears the rumors and suspects names. “I have been asked a hundred times this summer, who has the flag, but I really don't know,” she told me by phone last week. “I have heard rumors and it has been fun, but nobody really knows for certain. There have been a few people that were strongly rumored, but just as someone appears to be the person, somebody else becomes a suspect. Maybe one day we will

know for sure.” The Turnah Flag went on to have a busy summer by posting photos and comments from many events and places through out the country. First came photos from the Travelers Championship PGA event that took place in Hartford, CT, in late June. There were several photos posted from the event, including with popular PGA golfers including Keegan Bradley and Stewart Cink, who were also among the golfers that signed the flag. Then came a report the flag was on a road trip and a photo taken with NBC Today Show host Matt Lauer was posted. Next came photos from an Atlanta Braves game at Turner Field in Atlanta, GA. As attention grew for the flag, rumors persisted at the course. Reports of the flag being spotted were circulating, from being seen in a black convertible to one report of the flag pulling out of the Highlands on a Harley Davidson. Photos would begin to appear with the flag spotted at various homes around the course, with denials all around on who was hosting the flag. “It's not me,” was the answer to many accusations. Nobody could be pinned down, as each time somebody was suspected, the flag would appear somewhere else. The flag has been photographed at events ranging from a Steelers game

NBC Today Show host Matt Lauer holds the “Turnah Flag.” in Pittsburgh, PA to a Red Sox game at Fenway Park in Boston and recently at a Blue Angels air show. It has been seen on the local news and even a local news broadcast in Hartford, Connecticut. While at the Bridgestone Invitational PGA event in Akron, Ohio last August it was photographed with more golfers including Patrick Reed and 3 time PGA Major Champion Padraig Harrington, who also signed it.

Through out the summer the flag was photographed with many other golfers including British Open winner Zach Johnson, 21 time PGA Champion Davis Love, III, 34 time PGA winner VJ Singh and more. The flag is full of signatures from golf greats. The golfers reported to have signed the flag have combined to win well over 100 PGA events. To this day, despite reports of sightings, many rumors and accusations of

who has the flag, nobody has confirmed or have been proven to have it. The course owners report there are four or five good suspects, but each of them have repeatedly denied being involved. So the Turnah Flag mystery continues. In fact the latest post on the Flag's Facebook page shows the flag on the Downeaster Train going on yet another road trip. Stay tuned to see where the flag ends up next!n

Genealogy Tourism Becoming Increasingly Popular By Victor Block Planning a visit to Poland, where his ancestors had lived, Bernard Janicki went online and tracked down the parish priest in the village where his mother had been born. When he arrived, the pastor helped him find church records that traced his grandfather’s lineage to 1819, and the maternal side of his family back to 1751. Thus he became one of an increasing number of people who have made genealogy tourism – combining travel with research to trace their family roots -- one of the fastest growing segments of the tourism industry. The wealth of information available online is a good place to begin a trip down memory lane. A few strokes on a computer keyboard can unearth census records, ship passenger lists, immigration documents and a treasure trove of other data. The National Archives contains a mother lode of information. The Family History Center of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the world’s largest depository, with records from over 100 countries. Ancestry. com, which claims the title of world’s largest online resource for family history information, includes billions of historical records on its websites. But no amount of knowledge can compete with the thrill of making personal contact with relatives you might not have known exist, or visiting places where your forebears lived and your family roots were planted. Tour companies offer both organized group

PLAN and GROW your business with monthly Tips on various subjects such as Taxes, Human Resources, and Marketing.

Union Laws Apply to Non-Union Workplaces:

Non-solicitation and non-distribution policies even where there is no union Submitted by Rebecca Webber No union? Your business still needs to pay attention to the National Labor Relations Act. The issue getting a lot of attention is facebook messages and what can be done about them when employees slam their bosses or employer’s business but there are other issues too, and those apply to non-unionized workplaces as well as places with unions. The Supreme Court has long held that the right of employees to communicate with one another regarding

self-organization at the job site is protected by Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act. Section 7 is the part of the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”) that gives employees the right to self-organization. This part of the NLRA applies to non-unionized workplaces as well as places with unions. Section 8 is the portion of the NLRA that makes it illegal to interfere with the rights set out in Section 7 and describes what are called “unfair labor practices.” Prohibiting union solicitation but allowing other

types of solicitation would be called an unfair labor practice. The right to communicate set out in Section 7 encompasses the right to distribute union literature. The Court has affirmed this right in a variety of settings. See, e.g., Beth Israel Hosp. v. NLRB, 437 U.S. 483, 507 (1978) (holding that a hospital violates Section 8(a)(1) by preventing an employee from distributing union materials “during nonworking time in nonworking areas, where the facility has not justified the prohibition as neces-

Scam Jam Scam Alert

The “Man in the Middle” cyber scam is one that we all need to be aware of if using public Wi-Fi. A hacker will create a barrier between your device and your Wi-Fi connection, so instead of working directly with the hotspot, you’ll be sending all your information right to the hacker. They will then have full access to important emails, credit card information and even security credentials to your business network. Remember: if you have important infor-

mation on your phone or laptop, never connect to public Wi-Fi. Use either your cellphone network or wait until you’re able to use your own secure connection at home. Be a fraud fighter! If you can spot a scam, you can stop a scam. Contact local law enforcement or the AARP Fraud Watch Network www.aarp. org/fraudwatchnetwork or 1-877-9083360 to report a scam or for more information on scam and fraud prevention. 

sary to avoid disruption of health-care operations or disturbance of the patients”). Limits on distribution policies apply to email as well. An employer may not single out union-related messages for harsher treatment, whether explicitly in its policy or by enforcing a policy only against union communications. For example, if an employer allows employees to send personal messages using company email, it must allow them to send unionrelated email messages. Similarly, an employer that allows employees to solicit coworkers on behalf of various organizations may not prohibit messages soliciting on behalf of a union. Limits imposed with a union in mind will need to be evaluated in terms of all the non-union solicitation and distribution that often takes place in any workplace. For example, as one court noted, the employer, a hospital, “had permitted use of the cafeteria for other types of solicitation, including fund drives, which, if not to be equated with union solicitation in terms of potential for generating controversy, at least indicates that the hospital regarded the cafeteria as sufficiently commodious to admit solicitation and distribution without disruption.” Beth Israel Hosp. v. N.L.R.B., 437 U.S. at 50203. The Court did acknowledge that union activity was recognized as possibly generating behavior that was “undesirable in the hospital's cafeteria,” but held that there were “less restrictive means of regulating organizational activity” that were more focused on the pre-

cise harm to be avoided. In other words, if the concern is noise, limit noise, but not all union gatherings; if the concern is crowding, limit meetings to less crowded times rather than impose a blanket prohibition. In another case, the employer allowed a wide variety of solicitations – without discipline – including solicitations at work stations for Girl Scout cookies, ‘beach balm’ suntan lotion, March of Dimes, United Way, Secretary’s Day, and Boss’ Day, and ‘going away’ parties, birthday parties, and other social occasions. In addition, conversation was not limited to just work but included a wide range of subjects unrelated to work, with no resultant counseling. In contrast, an employee soliciting on behalf of a union was disciplined for both discussing and soliciting the signing of a union card. That employer was found in violation of the NLRA. Guidelines: 1. Don’t wait and update/ revise/review policies until after union activity has already begun. 2. Decide what the harms are that the policy is intended to prevent: disruption of customer service? Customers seeing disturbing information? Noise? Crowding? Distraction during working times as opposed to breaks or off duty periods? Don’t suddenly have a concern about noise, though, for example, just at the same time someone first posts a piece of union literature on a bulletin board. 3. Draft a policy that is focused on doing just what is necessary to accomplish those goals and address the identified concerns.

4. Don’t have a policy that allows unlimited exceptions so long as approved by someone in management. 5. Don’t have a policy that forbids union activity, or that is used to discipline an employee for union activity, when other solicitation activity is allowed. 6. Don’t have an access policy that forbids solicitation and distribution in areas where non-union solicitations and distributions have taken place in the past. 7. Do have a policy that limits access solely with respect to the interior of the facility and other working areas; “mixed use” areas or areas that have been used for solicitation in nonunion activities cannot be limited in terms of the content of the use by employees and discussion allowed. 8. Do disseminate the policy to all employees, not just the ones engaging in activities associated with unions. 9. Do have a policy that applies to off-duty employees seeking access to the facility for any purpose (or base the limits on criteria like location and whether interfering with customer service). You can have exceptions that allow access by employees in their capacity not as employees but as customers/patients/ visitors themselves with that access simply requiring that employees in those capacities follow the same rules as any other customer/patient/visitor.

Olympian Doug Lewis Announced as Dempsey Challenge Special Guest The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing has announced a new addition to the 2015 Dempsey Challenge Weekend (Oct. 17 & 18), special guest and Positive Tracks spokesperson and curriculum consultant, Olympic skier Doug Lewis. Positive Tracks is a national, youth-centric nonprofit that helps young people get active and give back using the power of sport. The Positive Tracks program plugs into charitable athletic events to empower youth of all athletic abilities to learn how and why to make a difference via their own sweat. Positive Tracks, partner to the Dempsey Challenge for five years, also doubles dollars and amplifies awareness generated by ages 23 and under. Doug Lewis began bombing down Vermont’s mountains at age three and ski racing at age eight. He enrolled at the Green Mountain Valley School Ski Academy in 1978, and won his first title at the Junior Olympics in 1980. The following year, at age 17,

he jumped to the international level and competed in his first World Cup at Aspen. He joined the USST in 1981 and competed in the 1984 Olympic Games in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia and the 1988 Olympic Games in Calgary, Canada. Doug’s greatest moment came at the 1985 World Championships when he won the bronze medal in the Downhill. Doug also collected two U.S. National Downhill Championships in 1986 and 1987. During the winter season, Doug is a broadcast Analyst for NBC Universal Sports. In the summer, Doug, along with his wife Kelley, runs ELITEAM Conditioning Camps in Vermont. In its 22nd year, ELITEAM focuses on educating young athletes on the importance of Sports Physiology, Sports Psychology, and Sports Nutrition. ELITEAM also offers Corporate and Group Team-Building, Leadership, and Risk-Taking programs. Doug began working with Positive Tracks this

past year and has been thrilled with the partnership as their mission to help young people get active and give back dovetails so well with his own work with ELITEAM. “I’ve always been a proponent of giving back as an athlete and when I learned about Positive Tracks, the partnership felt like such a natural fit. Inspiring and educating young athletes to push their limits is so much fun. I love it when I can see an athlete build confidence in front of me when he/she accomplishes something they thought they’d never do,” he said. “I am looking forward to the Dempsey Challenge and have planned a fun, quick obstacle course in the park to show kids of all ages how fun getting active can be.” Doug will also be preparing a special surprise with Dempsey Center founder Patrick Dempsey on Saturday morning. He added, “All I can say is that you do not want to miss the Challenge this year, because Patrick and I have a surprise that will really get you moving.”n
