Bill Ludwick, a Pennsylvania native announces i-Ride4.com, a one-man, 8 day bicycle ride across Pennsylvania. The ride will start in the early morning hours of September 9th at the northern Pennsylvania/New Jersey border, and will journey along Pennsylvania’s Route 6; the longest highway segment in the Commonwealth, ending in Bill’s hometown of Titusville, Pennsylvania. The goal of the 450-mile ride is to educate, raise awareness, and funds to fight Multiple Sclerosis and Narcolepsy/Cataplexy. There is currently no cure. The need for funds for research, more effective treatments and ultimately, a cure, is crucial.
A few years ago, on a particularly hard ride, Bill found himself thinking about the hardships that his sister who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1993, and his son who was diagnosed with Narcolepsy-Cataplexy in 2013 have had to endure. “I realized the pain and suffering I was experiencing was just a moment in time and would soon pass. I also knew that I was in complete control; I could slow down, or even stop at any time. Unfortunately, that is not the case for anyone with MS or Narcolepsy. Since that day, I have thought about how I could make just a little difference for them, and to all those that cope with medical hardships every day.
Last October, I decided the best way for me to honor them and raise awareness was on my bike. I chose Pennsylvania Route 6 because of its unique, small town history, heritage, and breathtaking scenery. It was also important for me to end my trip in Titusville, my boyhood town. To me, Titusville represents family and community, both of which are needed to defeat any disease. Route 6 spans the entire country, and it would be great if this could grow into a national relay event.”
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable and potentially disabling disease of the central nervous system, which interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. The immune system attacks tissue and cells within the central nervous system, and causes damage to nerve connections resulting in neurological symptoms. These can include extreme fatigue, impaired vision, problems with balance and walking, numbness or pain and other sensory changes, bladder and bowel symptoms, tremors, problems with memory and concentration, mood changes, and more. Anyone may develop MS but women are at least two to three times more likely than men to develop MS. Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, although an estimated 8,000–10,000 children under the age of 18 also live with MS, and people as old as 75 have developed it. An estimated 2.3 million people live with MS worldwide.
Narcolepsy is a life-long disorder of the central nervous system characterized by the brain's inability to control sleep-wake cycles. At various times throughout the day, people with narcolepsy experience irresistible and sudden bouts of sleep, which can last from a few seconds to several minutes. This sleepiness is similar to how non-narcoleptics feel when going without sleep for 48-72 hours. Other major symptoms may include Cataplexy which is a sudden loss of voluntary muscle tone, vivid dream-like images or hallucinations during sleep onset or when waking, and brief episodes of total paralysis, also during sleep onset or when waking.
Narcolepsy affects both males and female equally. It most often starts in childhood or adolescence. Narcolepsy is not rare, but it is an under-recognized and under-diagnosed condition. More than 200,000 Americans and 3 million people worldwide are living with narcolepsy.
i-Ride4 will benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and Wake Up Narcolepsy. Both organizations are 501(c)3 nonprofit foundations established to provide education and support to patients and their caregivers, and to raise funds to research causes, treatments and cures. For more information on these organizations, go to http://www.nationalmssociety.org and https://www.wakeupnarcolepsy.org.

The ninth annual Step Outdoors Tryathlon and 5K Trail Run/Walk is Saturday, Sept. 17, at 10 a.m. at Hills Creek State Park, 111 Spillway Road, seven miles northeast of Wellsboro.
There are no competitive categories in the triathlon or 5K. Every finisher will receive a medallion.
Those who pre-register by this coming Wednesday, Aug. 31 will be guaranteed a free event T-shirt. Any surplus T-shirts will be available for purchase on race day.
Check-in time and registration are from 8-9:30 a.m. on Sept. 17 at the tent between the park’s bathhouse and concession stand. The pre-race talk for all entrants, especially those participating for the first time, will be at 9:45 a.m.
Individuals of all ages can take part in the triathlon. Those who want to solo can do all three legs of the event themselves or two or three people can form a team and do them.
The triathlon will start with the 5K on park roads and trails around the perimeter of Hills Creek Lake. All runners and walkers, whether they are participating in the 5K only or the triathlon, will start at the same time and location and follow the same course.
The next leg of the triathlon is a paddling event on the lake with competitors either kayaking or canoeing a 1.75-mile course identified with temporary markers. The triathlon will end with bikers traveling 8 miles on a course of dirt and hardtop roads in and around the park.
The focus of the Step Outdoors TRYathlon is on trying rather than winning, on camaraderie rather than competition and on personal challenge rather than place of finish. That is the reason age and gender categories have been eliminated.
A great introductory event for the novice, the triathlon is also for the seasoned triathlete because of its unique course.
The deadline to register online at www.stepoutdoors.org is Wednesday, Sept. 14. On the Step Outdoors website, the deadline is incorrectly listed as Friday, Sept. 16.
To register online for the 5K Trail Run/Walk only, individuals pay a $20 entry fee plus processing fee by Sept. 14.
Individuals who register online by Sept. 14 to do the three legs of the triathlon solo pay a $25 entry fee plus processing fee and to do the triathlon as a two- or three-person team, pay a $60 entry fee plus processing fee.
To register by downloading and completing a registration form and mailing it to the Tioga County Partnership for Community Health at 33 Pearl Street, Wellsboro, PA 16901 or registering on Sept. 17, the day of the event, entrants for the 5K pay a $25 entry fee; for the triathlon, solo entrants pay a $30 entry fee and two- and three-person teams, $65. Checks should be made payable to the Tioga County Partnership for Community Health.
For a special $10 boat or bike offer that includes delivery and pickup, call Canyon Cruises at 1-814-435-2969. Pine Creek Outfitters at 570-724-3003 is also offering rental gear.

Bradford, PA – A Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) road improvement project that began in May continues in McKean and Potter Counties. The project will bring improvements across more than 16 miles of road surfaces in the two counties and provide smoother, safer travel for regional motorists. Both counties will see additional improvements in the form of more than 45 miles of roadway sealcoating.
PennDOT expects the week of August 29 to feature work at the following locations:
• Milling and paving on Route 219 at Owens Way
• Placement of shoulder back-up on Route 6 from Sweden Valley to Potato City
• Milling and paving on Route 6 west of Galeton
Work zones feature a daylight alternating traffic pattern, controlled by flaggers in the roadway. Short travel delays should be expected. All work is weather and schedule dependent.
Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $5 million job, which is expected to finish by the end of September.

OLEAN, N.Y., August 26, 2016— Amidst the kids’ shouts of “I love onions. Can I have more onions?” Bev Bennett, better known at Alder Court as the “Carrot Lady” thanks to her carrot costume, invites her friends, all under 5 feet tall, to join her in making a salad.
The Veggie Mobile provides healthy food options to public housing residents who frequently face high rates of poverty and diet-related health problems such as obesity, heart disease and diabetes. The project aims to combat these circumstances in low-income households.
Thanks in part to a $2,000 grant from the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation, the Veggie Mobile is serving more needy Olean residents and building more relationships with those residents in its second year.
According to Athena Godet-Calogeras, Veggie Mobile project director, the Veggie Mobile serves between 125 and 150 people at every Wednesday delivery. And that number continues to grow each week she said.
The project’s impact was noticeable.
“Have you ever seen kids so excited about vegetables?” Ms. Bennett asked as hands around the kids table shot up to request more tomatoes.
The project only served Alder and Seneca Courts residents last year. This year the Veggie Mobile also makes stops at Martha Court and the Olean House thanks to new funding sources like the CRCF grant made from the foundation’s Community Fund, which makes possible grants to important area causes and projects.
Ms. Godet-Calogeras believes the Veggie Mobile has had quite an impact this summer. “We come to them (residents) so they don’t have to go to a food bank or to a church,” she said. “That’s important because 75 percent of the elderly in the housing projects don’t have any form of transportation,” she said.
But for Ms. Godet-Calogeras, the program is about even more than bringing healthy foods in the form of fresh vegetables.
“You start to build relationships,” she said. “Soon you know and talk to the people you’re serving each week.”
At first, she said, people were a little hesitant, but there was no shortage of smiles and gratitude as Veggie Mobile volunteers passed out corn, tomatoes, onions and more at Alder Court.
Ms. Godet-Calogeras said that the residents constantly express their gratitude. In fact, they help volunteers set up before delivery. The very people the program is meant to serve are now leaving donations in thanks every week, she said.
Who would have known the power an onion has to excite kids and bring people together?
Donations can be made to the Community Fund to benefit important community projects like the Veggie Mobile at CRCF, 301 North Union Street, Suite 203 or online at cattfoundation.org.
Established in 1994, the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation is growing good by connecting donors to the causes they care about most in the region. Grants from the foundation support many areas, including education, scholarships, health care, the arts, community development, human service, and youth development.

August wild-turkey sightings must be reported by Sept. 4
Time is running out to report wild-turkey sightings as part of the inaugural Pennsylvania Wild Turkey Sighting Survey.
The survey period closes Aug. 31, and the public has until Sept. 4 to report turkey sightings recorded during the month of August.
There have been more than 2,300 submissions so far, and a summary of the final survey results will be posted on the Game Commission’s website beginning Sept. 6.
Information submitted to https://pgcdatacollection.pa.gov/TurkeyBroodSurvey as part of the survey will help in analyzing spring turkey production. Participants are requested to report the wild turkeys they see (whether they’re gobblers, hens with broods, hens without broods, or unknowns), along with the general location, date, and contact information to be used only if there are any questions. The data also will be used to compare turkey reproduction in Pennsylvania to that of other states in the Northeast that are also conducting the same type of citizen-science turkey surveys to give us a regional view of wild turkey population trends. Every entry into the database is important.
Factors including spring weather, habitat, winter food abundance, predation, and fall harvest the previous year affect wild turkey productivity.
The 2015 statewide turkey population was approximately 216,000, which is slightly above the previous five-year average of 205,000 birds.
Pennsylvania’s turkey population reached its peak of about 280,000 birds in the early 2000s as a result of restoration efforts through wild trap and transfer, habitat improvement, and fall turkey hunting season restrictions. It then declined sharply to levels below 200,000, but, for the last two years has been trending back up, now exceeding the five-year average.
