Coudersport Rotary Club

Coudersport Rotary Club was pleased to have Noah Baker come to our June 17, 2019, meeting to speak about the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Seminar (or HOBY). The HOBY mission is to inspire and prepare future young leaders for a life dedicated to leadership, service, and innovation.

“I was the only person from Potter County attending this year,” Noah said, “I met so many great people right off the bat.”

Noah would like to hold Coudersport Jr/Sr High School’s first minithon. Thon is a 46 hour dance marathon held by Penn State in partnership with the Four Diamonds to raise funds for the fight against childhood cancer. A minithon is a 12 hour dance marathon that can be held at high schools to do the same.

As a HOBY alumni, Noah has the unique opportunity to attend the World Leadership Congress in Chicago. He will be exposed to in-depth leadership theories, develop a blueprint for a service project that he would like to complete, and gain real-world experience from knowledgeable professionals.

The Congress program fee is $1,825 plus about $500 for air fare and the deadline to attend is fast approaching. Noah is seeking financial sponsorship in any amount to help him get to the Congress. Coudersport Rotary Club presented Noah Baker with a check for $100 to help him reach his goal.

Also, to raise funds, Noah is selling raffle tickets for a chance to win a beautiful quilt created and donated by Maureen Cracknell.

If you would like to donate to Noah Baker’s trip to the World Leadership Congress in Chicago, buy a quilt raffle ticket, or if you would like to hear more about HOBY, please contact Noah at

Anaplasmosis: Tick borne disease mimics flu/Can be fatal if not treated quickly

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - These bugs are so small, we often don’t see them. And what some of them are carrying can be deadly.

More and more people are getting Lyme disease, but doctors like Kris Paolino at Upstate Medical University warn that there are other tick-borne infections people should worry about.

“The big one is anaplasmosis,” Dr. Paolino said.

Anaplasmosis mimics the flu and if it isn’t caught early and treated with antibiotics…

“It’s a fatal illness people can get sick and die,” Paolino said.

Paolino says there are five cases of anaplasmosis already reported in Binghamton this year and that’s just one of the infections people should be worrying about.

“Powassan gets a lot of press because it generally has a high fatality rate and people who do survive it oftentimes have a neurological compromise,” Paolino said. Read more...

Signs and Symptoms from CDC website:

Signs and symptoms of anaplasmosis typically begin within 1–2 weeks after the bite of an infected tick.

Tick bites are usually painless, and many people do not remember being bitten.

See your healthcare provider if you become ill after having been bitten by a tick or having been in the woods or in areas with high brush where ticks commonly live.

Early Illness

Early signs and symptoms (days 1-5) are usually mild or moderate and may include:

Fever, chills
Severe headache
Muscle aches
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite

Late Illness

Rarely, if treatment is delayed or if there are other medical conditions present, anaplasmosis can cause severe illness. Prompt treatment can reduce your risk of developing severe illness.

Signs and symptoms of severe (late stage) illness can include:

Respiratory failure
Bleeding problems
Organ failure

Clinical Diagnosis

Early recognition and treatment is key.

Maintain a high level of clinical suspicion for anaplasmosis or other tickborne diseases in cases of non-specific febrile illness of unknown origin, particularly during spring and summer months when ticks are most active. Early recognition and presumptive treatment is important to prevent severe illness.

Because anaplasmosis can be difficult to diagnose, particularly in the early stages of illness, patients should treated presumptively based on clinical suspicion.

Always take a thorough patient history, including:
Recent tick bite. NOTE: Tick bites are often painless. Many people do not remember being bitten. Do not rule out a tickborne infection if your patient does not remember a tick bite.
Exposure to areas where ticks are commonly found, including wooded areas or brushy areas with high grasses and leaf litter.

Travel history (domestic and international) to areas where anaplasmosis is endemic.
Laboratory confirmation is helpful for disease surveillance and understanding burden of anaplasmosis infection in the United States.

The diagnosis of anaplasmosis often is made based on clinical signs and symptoms, and can later be confirmed using specialized confirmatory laboratory tests. Treatment should not be delayed pending the receipt of laboratory test results, or withheld on the basis of an initial negative laboratory result.

High Water This Weekend

Allegheny Outfitters

USACE outflow from Kinzua Dam will increase from 5,900cfs to 11,100cfs today. Conewango and Brokenstraw Creeks have both crested but are still flooded.

The Allegheny River is going to get MUCH higher today and remain high throughout the week. These are not safe paddling conditions.

Raising the outflow is good in respect to getting the lake and river back to normal levels and being able to possibly paddle next weekend. We'll keep you posted as the week progresses.
