Internet Outage by Zito Media Delays Solomon's Words Postings

The storm this afternoon apparently picked us to shut down our internet. Zito Media says we are the only one in Roulette with no service and can't send someone out until tomorrow to fix it.

We finally switched to our backup Verizon Internet to finish the postings for tonight. We seldom have to use it because Zito is so reliable here and so much faster. So we have been slow tonight but better slow than none.

Unfortunately, we can's scan police reports and pictures  are slow to process. We'll get them tomorrow when we get our Zito Internet back online.

PFC George Pesock Memorial Bridge Dedicated in Coudersport

Paul W. Heimel
19 mins ·

There was not a dry eye in the valley as Paula (Pesock) Mitchell told of her grandparents changing one of the five Blue Stars they proudly displayed in their Elk Street home front window to a Gold Star, signifying the loss of their son George. Paula (on ladder) joined other family members in unveiling the bridge sign. 

Some background:
On the day after Thanksgiving in 1942, 20-year-old George A. Pesock enlisted in the U.S. Army. George’s family would never see him again. He became the town’s second casualty of World War II on July 9, 1944, succumbing to wounds he received in action on the Pacific Ocean island of Saipan.

The son of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Pesock, George quit school early to go to work for the Damascus Tanning Company near his home. He was one of multiple Pesock brothers who enlisted for service to their country.

He was deployed to the Pacific Theater of Operations with the 27th Infantry Division. PFC Pesock had sought a furlough to visit his family before he shipped out from Hawaii, but the request was denied. His family was not aware that he had been deployed when they received a telegram informing them of his death. PFC Pesock is buried in St. Eulalia Cemetery.

JEREMY WONDERLING WITHSTANDS PRESSURE FROM KYLE LUKON TO WIN "GARY MONTGOMERY MEMORIAL"

JEREMY WONDERLING WITHSTANDS PRESSURE FROM KYLE LUKON TO WIN "GARY MONTGOMERY MEMORIAL" FOR 2ND CONSECUTIVE YEAR AT OUTLAW; HIS 2ND STRAIGHT SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR WIN EXTENDS POINTS LEAD
May 31, 2019
(By Mike Leone)

(Dundee,NY )...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series presented by Pace Performance headed to Outlaw Speedway for the annual trip to the Finger Lakes Region. Race #5 of the 2019 season brought out an all-time record high RUSH car count for the Dundee, NY track with 29 cars from all over New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Ontario, Canada making the trip for the third annual "Gary Montgomery Memorial" on the beautiful race day.

2018 Sweeney Tour Champion, Jeremy Wonderling, appears primed to defend his title. One year after winning his season's first Tour race in the "Gary Montgomery Memorial" that appeared to propel him to the Series crown, Wonderling not only repeated that special victory for the former Can-Am "360" Late Model racer on Friday night, but captured his second straight Tour win of the season. Wonderling took the lead on lap 12 and held off a valiant charge from 12th starting Kyle Lukon for the $2,000 victory and receive a Sunoco 5-Gallon Race Jug.

"Not only was Gary (Montgomery) a promoter, but he was one of my best friends and it was sad to see him go," acknowledged the 39-year-old Wellsville, NY racer. "If we wouldn't had that caution on the backside I would have had Waters. Then we'd run for awhile and the caution came out and I looked at the board and saw 84 and I was like 'who's 84' then it took me awhile to realize that's 184 and figured he must be pretty good. I just kept doing what I was doing. I figured the only way he was really going to get me was on a restart. He was trying everything he could do; push me up the race track and stuff like that, but I don't blame him I'd have done the same thing- it was good racing."

2017 Tour Champion, John Waters, who was making his season debut, took off in the early lead after earning the pole following his dash win with Chad Homan, Wonderling, Michael Duritsky, Jr., and Braeden Dillinger in tow. Wonderling ducked under Homan and made the pass for second on lap two as Duritsky made the identical move one lap later for third. Waters had a straightaway lead on Wonderling when the caution was displayed for Kyle Murray, Chris Fleming, and Sam Pennacchio with three laps completed.

When racing resumed, Wonderling powered around Waters for the apparent lead, but a multi-car accident mid-pack occurred on the backstretch involving seven cars. Everyone was okay, but several were done for the night. Under caution, Duritsky pitted and yielded third back to Homan. This time, Waters chose the outside for the restart and would maintain the lead.

Lukon, who started 12th, was up to fifth for the restart then took over fourth from Dillinger on lap five. By lap six, Waters and Wonderling distanced themselves from the pack. Wonderling really put the pressure on Waters beginning on lap eight. The last two years' champions really went at for five laps until Wonderling decided to go under Waters racing into turn three to lead lap 12.

Lukon's car was really working well on the bottom as he drove under Homan in turn three for third on lap14 then two laps later snuck under Waters in turn four for second. Wonderling had a straightaway lead built by the time Lukon got to second. Wonderling caught lapped traffic on lap 19, but it was short-lived as the caution was displayed for Steve LeBarron. Under caution, LeBarron's teammate, Waters, became the second driver to pit while running second and once again Homan re-assumed third for the restart. Waters was selected as the TBM Brakes "Tough Brake of the Night".

While Wonderling took back off in the lead on lap 19, Lukon stayed right with the leader. It appeared Lukon may have had a shot to grab the lead, but Murray spun to bring out the event's final caution with 26 laps scored. Wonderling would keep Lukon at bay over the final four laps to earn his sixth career Tour win in his Close Racing Supply/Terry Prince Contracting/Pine Grove Collision/The Store in Scio/Ultra Force Machine/Wonderling Pit Stop-sponsored #3J.

Lukon came up 0.530 of a second back for a great runner-up effort in his first ever visit to Outlaw, which moved him into second in points behind Wonderling. Lukon earned $1,000 plus the $100 Precise Racing Products "Pedal Down" Hard Charger gift card for advancing 10 positions. Homan was third for the second straight year at Outlaw. Ryan Frazee, who turned 16 on Monday, recorded his best career Sweeney Tour finish in fourth after starting ninth for the "Futures Cup" racer and Tour rookie.

Jon Rivers, who was making his 2019 Tour debut, had a great run in fifth after starting 14th. Rivers also picked up the "Spoiler Alert" contingency and received a $150 spoiler kit from Ontime

MUDSKIPPERS CONCERT IS THURSDAY, JUNE 6

Pictured are the Mudskippers (from left to right) Dan Klingsberg on upright bass, Ethan Hawkins on guitar, Ethan Setiawan on mandolin and Avery Merritt on violin.
The Mudskippers will perform in the Coolidge Theatre at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 6. The doors will open at 6:45 p.m.

Hailing from Boston, this four-member acoustic band embodies New England-style grass, modern songwriting and a respect for bluegrass and old-time traditions. Living in the hotbed of progressive folk that produced Joy Kills Sorrow, Crooked Still and the Deadly Gentlemen, the Mudskippers carry the torch with heavy grooves, entrapping lyricism and heartfelt composition that push the envelope of modern acoustic music while keeping sight of the traditions and style that built and define it.

The band was formed in April of 2018 and has been playing together for just over a year. "The four of us are members of the active bluegrass/roots music community around Boston, a group that really digs playing together," said Setiawan.

The Mudskippers features the collective talents of lead singer Ethan Hawkins on guitar, 2014 National Mandolin Champion Ethan Setiawan on mandolin, bass phenomenon Dan Klingsberg on upright bass and award-winning fiddler Avery Merritt on violin.

Hawkins is the main songwriter. Each band member contributes tunes and co-writes. The band will play some of Hawkins' originals, such as "Taking Her Away" and "Mashed Potato Heart," and cover tunes, such as "Mountain Annie," originally by Fruition.

“The mudskippers are a group of young, energetic and extremely talented musicians that have formed a tight and cohesive band," said Aubrey Irion, a member of the Cherry Flats Ridge Pluckers and a friend of the band. "You should go see them before they’re famous," he added.

This is a BYOB event. Audience members are invited to bring their favorite snacks and beverages and reserve a table at no extra charge. Admission is $15. For tickets and a table, call 570-724-6220 or visit www.deanecenter.com.
