Terra Curtis Posts For Bike and Build

Miraculously, an oasis of internet!

Here I am in Missoula, Montana. It must have been a week and a half or two weeks ago that I last wrote. Luckily, there is a very nice public library here in town with enough computers for us and the citizens.

Since I last wrote, we have accomplished some pretty amazing things, if I do say so myself. I can't even remember it all, but in about 5 days we climbed Togwotee Pass (and the continental divide), Teton Pass, the continental divide again (back east) into Montana, and Flesher Pass, crossing back to the west side of the divide. Here we are in Missoula at an elevation of about 3200 ft. I think, in a tea-sup shaped valley unfortunately filled with smoke from the wildfires burning just 50 miles away. According to the locals, this never used to be, but is becoming, a common summertime occurrence.

Causer, Scarnati Announce McKean County Fair Grant

The McKean County Fair Association has been awarded a $25,000 grant from the state for improvements at the fair grounds, Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) and Sen. Joe Scarnati (R-Brockway) announced today.
The grant will be used to replace fencing around the 40-acre fair property, which will improve safety at the site. The total project cost is $52,000.
“The fair is one of the biggest and most popular events in McKean County for people of all ages,” Causer said. “Investing in our fairgrounds is a wise investment for the state.”
Scarnati agreed. “One of the best things about summer in Pennsylvania is our county fairs. They offer a chance to celebrate our farming roots and to recognize the important role agriculture continues to play in our communities today.”

The grant was awarded by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture through its Capital Improvement Matching Grant program. The funding supports improvement and maintenance projects at fairs across the Commonwealth.

Wind farms outlawed from the PA ‘Wilds’

By CHERYL R. CLARKE cclarke@sungazette.com

WELLSBORO — Plans by the state to allow wind farms to build on all but 2 percent of state forest lands have been abandoned, according to a Department of Conservation and Natural Resources spokeswoman.

Chris Novak, agency director of communications, said Thursday that discussions had been ongoing but, because of efforts to attract people to the natural resources and develop ecotourism, the agency has pulled state forest lands in the 12-county area known as “The Wilds” out of the running.

“The Pennsylvania Wilds are off the table, along with all other state forest lands, except about two percent located in spots in the southcentral portions of the state, wherever there is adequate wind and ridge tops,” said John Quigley, DCNR director of legislation and strategic initiatives.

Lincoln, MT (56 miles)

Well, we just finished crossing the Continental Divide for the third time in the past week. Flesher Pass wasn't as long, as steep, or as high as Teton Pass, but we didn't start it until after 35 miles of headwind uphill. Our initial descent from the top was also great, but the rest of the downhill was robbed by the intense gusts in our face.

This morning's breakfast in Helena was absolutely scrumptious! We woke up to heaping stacks of blueberry pancakes, OJ, sausage, and homefries! 6 pancakes have never sat so well in my stomach. Delicious!

New Wireless 911 System Won't Expand Coverage


By James Jones

On June 29, 2007, Bryan G. Robinson, a correspondent for the Williamsport Sun-Gazette reported that Tioga County’s 911 system is getting a complete overhaul. As part of that, Tioga County Board of Commissioners approved a $3.1 million contract with Motorola for a digital microwave system for the county Department of Emergency Services.

Dave Cohick, county director of emergency services, said the new digital system will replace an outdated analog radio system. “The system we have in now was put in in 1979 and it can’t handle what we’re going to do,” he said.

One of the requirements the state has set for counties’ emergency services is that they are able to locate a wireless caller within 200 feet, he said. This new system will allow the center to do that for both Tioga and Potter counties. Tioga County Emergency Communications Center also dispatches for Potter County. “It will create better communication between the two counties,” he said.

Tioga County Commissioner Erick Coolidge also credited Potter County officials, especially the commissioners and John Hetrick, Cohick’s counterpart there, director of emergency services for Potter County. “I can’t stress enough how important it was that both Potter and Tioga County worked together on this,” said Coolidge.

On June 21, the Potter County Board of Commissioners also approved another contract with Motorola for digital microwave for 4.2 million dollars.

On June 22, radio station WFRM posted the following news on their web site:

During their meeting yesterday, the Potter County Commissioners approved a $4.2 million agreement between the County and Motorola to provide the equipment, system, and optimization services for a new Microwave System Infrastructure for the 911 Wireless program.

The program is fully funded through the state 911 Wireless Program.

Chairman Ken Wingo told WFRM that members of the statewide committee from Philadelphia and Delaware Counties pushed hard for Potter County to get the funding because they realize many of their residents vacation here and they want them to be able to access 911 anywhere.

In an interview today with Potter County Emergency Services Director John Hetrick to find out what this new $7,300,000.00 radio system would bring to Potter and Tioga Counties, I was impressed that it would allow the 911 center to locate a wireless caller or a wireless lap top computer within 200 feet, bringing the very latest technology to their fingertips.

"But.....John stressed.....only if you have access to a wireless phone tower operated by one of the commercial wireless phone companies like Verizon, Nextel, Att, and others." "The new system will not expand coverage beyond that offered by the commercial carriers." He said one of the wireless companies had surveyed Potter County for complete coverage and reported that it would take 41 towers to give seamless coverage to the entire county. Thats one tower for every 400 residents of Potter County. And that's not likely to be a profitable investment.

So, sorry to dissapoint our friends from Philadelphia and Delaware Counties, but when you are in the backwoods of Potter and Tioga Counties, and get lost, you better bone up on your Boy Scout skills to find your way out, because wireless coverage countywide probably isn't going to happen in this lifetime.

Residents should continue to push the wireless phone companies to add additional towers at least in the major populated areas and across major highways in the two counties.

Wireless 911 will work great, but only where it works!

So what are these Teton things?

We had been hearing about the Grand Tetons for a couple days and the ride to Jackson was going to be our first opportunity to see these things. I myself had no idea what to expect. There were so many mountains in the distance that day, I wasn't quite sure I would be able to tell the difference. Before we departed for Jackson a bunch of us decided to get coffee, chat on the phone and ride a giant Jackalope. I mean we did only have to ride 80 miles so we didn't really have much to do.


After all that was over we were off. We had a great gang and we were not afraid to stop every 5 miles. At the first stop Marie, Nate, Win, Lauren, Courtney and I had to pee. At the next stop we picked up Brianne, who was fixing her flat tire. The next stop was a bit of a delay. There was major construction going on so we couldn't ride up part of the mountain, we had to be driven by a huge truck! We were ecstatic.






Once we got off the truck we were about 20 miles into the ride which meant about 5 more until we hit lunch. The problem with this leg of our ride is that everything is so beautiful, I want to stop every 5 minutes and take pictures.





After eating some PB&J @ lunch we rode about a mile and hit the continental divide, we stopped. Then we hit more construction, we stopped again.



Then we saw it a sign that would provide our destiny, at least for the next 17 miles.


We had the road all to ourselves for a while and we were coasting down it at 30mph. No trailers. No cars or pickup trucks and no tractor trailers. But soon our victory ride was over and we were back down to a mere 23 mph with traffic on the road and thats when a bizarre freak accident occurred. I was riding behind Lauren and all of a sudden her seat broke off her bike and she went flying onto the road. Thankfully there were no cars around and we got the situation under control. Lauren is ok, just bruised and sore. She rode in the van the rest of the way and we carried on the next 60 miles riding a little slower than usual. The good news is that we finally saw the Tetons!


Honduras Missionaries To Speak At Coudersport Gospel Tabernacle

Wednesday--August 1, 2007---7:00 pm

For over fifteen years Rosemary Nelson and Barbara Marang, have served as missionaries in the country of Honduras. Through the many hardships of Honduras, from being the second poorest nation in the western hemisphere, to the fury of Hurricane Mitch, these devoted women have preached the Gospel.

Their work has now grown to a ministry of over 2,000 people a week. The work includes nightly Bible studies throughout the city of Choluteca, food ministry to thousands weekly, assistance to widows and orphans, and the beginning of two new churches.

One church being in New Choluteca, an area where thousands died during Hurricane Mitch, is now seeing explosive growth with over 400 people attending Bible study and their latest miracle, Church in the Heavens, a church plant located in the remote mountains of Honduras has begun the construction process.

These two woman missionaries will speak at the Coudersport Gospel Tabernacle on Wednesday night, August 1, 2007. Come and hear the wonderful things God is doing there through their ministry. Time is 7:00 pm in the sanctuary.

Robin Greenstein- NYC Songwriter Robin Greenstein has collected awards and accomplishments both for her songwriting and performance. She was signed to Bob Dylan’s publishing company for two years, has showcased at Kerrville folk and Falcon Ridge, Recorded for Fast Folk and Atlantic Records, and toured Europe in support of “Slow Burn”, her acclaimed debut CD that was picked up by Swiss label Brambus Records.

http://www.richdeans.com

Nick Annis- Florida’s Nick Annis is a multi award winning songwriter and performer who writes deep, atmospheric, and sometimes surprising songs. An expert story teller with a mesmerizing stage presence, audiences return time and time again to hear him deliver spoken word pieces in the style of brilliant songwriter/storytellers like Gamble Rogers, John McCutcheon, and Dave Carter. Nick's insights are drawn from widely varied careers (including selling ice cream from a truck, running a small bakery, and drilling for oil in the Midwest), but also from his upbringing in a large Greek family.
http://www.nickannis.com

Tess Reitz- Opening our show will be Boston’s Tess Reitz, better known as “Miss Tess”. Tess is the niece of local slide steel wizard Don Reitz, and is carving out a career as a songwriter and performer in the Cambridge folk scene, where she fronts the Bon Ton Parade band, currently touring throughout the Northeast. Tess’s music is heavily influenced by her Maryland upbringing, listening to her father’s big Band rehearsing in the basement, and contains elements of ragtime, jump blues, and 30’s swing. Her smooth but powerful vocal style is reminiscent of Norah Jones.
http://www.misstessmusic.com

The Roundtable will again be hosted by Eppie Bailey and Steve Quelet of Jakob’s Hollow, and they’ll have a few surprises of their own to bring to the “In the Round”, as they unleash a batch of brand new co-written songs on the unsuspecting public. http://www.jakobshollow.com

Artists In Residence- This month’s Roundtable will feature local artist Karen Wolf, and the artistry and artisanship of the Hann family of Sabinsville.

Karen Wolf- Potter County’s Karen Wolf has just completed an acclaimed showcase of her paintings at the John White Gallery in Coudersport. “A love of nature and detail has been my focus when painting. I try to bring depth, truth, and possibly even a story to my work. With each piece I learn new lessons and understanding about nature's way, things that I might otherwise pass by and not ever see. This is why I love to create the detail in each painting.” The medium Karen chooses to work with is primarily acrylics because of its layering and fast drying qualities. Although she had put her brushes down for many years, Karen says she now paints every day. “I am living in a good place here in potter County Pennsylvania. It is where I am finding myself again”

The Hann Family- Sabinville’s “Made By Hann” family is a true artistic family enterprise. Don Hann will be bringing along wife Bonnie, sister Lori, and mom Evelyn, all artists and artisans in their own right!
Don built his first guitar when he was 15. A short while later his grandfather gave him a broken violin that had fallen apart. “He said I could have it if I could fix it. From that time on I got the "itch" to make a fiddle from scratch. There always seemed to be more important things to do
(like raise a family) but the desire never left.” Over the years, Don has handmade over 30 instruments, including flat top and arch top guitars, mandolins and violins, and a banjo is next on the agenda! Wife Bonnie crochets and sews, and has become quite well known for her beadwork jewelry. Sister Lori started Beracah Art, named after the scriptural “Valley of Beracah”, which means valley of praise. “I enjoy blending the different art mediums. I've always noticed and appreciated the natural beauty around us, but it's only been in recent years after a time of personal struggle and heartbreak that I've learned to share that beauty through photography, acrylics, and watercolors.” Don’s mom Evelyn Hann learned how to crochet rag rugs from her mother. Now at 83 years of age, she’s made hundreds of rugs of many colors, and is still creating and combining colors to express her artistic talent. She also sews potholders and pillows!

We hope you all can join us for this very special Songwriter’s Roundtable! For additional links to artists and performers visit our website at http://www.songwritersroundtable.com

Bozeman, MT (92 miles)

We started in West Yellowstone this morning wearing our leg and arm warmers up the climb into the state park only to descend into the heat of Bozeman 92 miles later. Tree lined forests flanked the road as my sluggish legs were reminded of cold en route up the first few miles. After that, the road turned downwards for the REST OF THE RIDE! We cruised down by Yellowstone's streams and mountains at a comfortable 22mph. We finally reaped the due rewards of our previous 3000 miles of ups, downs, and more ups.

I cruised up to the first lunch stop (with quite chilled fingers) and enjoyed three pb&j's surrounded by the gorgeousness of nature. I then enjoyed relaxing by a river before playing on the swingset at second lunch.

So nice and relaxing.
