We’re now entering an offseason that really started in May when it was announced that Eli Tomac and Monster Energy Kawasaki were going their separate ways, and now officially includes Malcolm Stewart signing with Rockstar Husqvarna and Red Bull KTM veteran Marvin Musquin going SX. – only in ’22. Jeremy Martin returns to Monster Energy / Star Racing Yamaha, Justin Bogle separates from Rocky Mountain ATV / MC / WPS / KTM team after three years, Guy B. calling him a career at Vital MX, followed by Michael Lindsey the caller leaves with his FXR Chaparral Honda and returns to Vital MX as content manager (and congratulations to Steve and Michael on this news), as well as the very likely official announcements to come that Tomac is joining Star Racing Yamaha and Aaron Plessinger signing with Red Bull KTM… We probably missed a few there, but you get the point, the offseason and the real season never really end, they just get mixed up!

Back home in Morgantown, West Virginia, we take the offseason very seriously – we’re all going to High Point Raceway this weekend for the annual Big Dave’s Vet Homecoming weekend, which features a PAMX race, a vintage motocross, an off-road mini-GNCC, a show of old bikes and equipment, pit bikes, Stacyc races, karaoke, roadworks. I was there all day with MX Sports’ Tim Cotter and Derek Garcia and Racer X Brand Manager Ryan McCleod and others working out the track and setting things up for what should be a very busy weekend. fun on the track… What they’re all really about, right?

But let me end this introduction on a sad note. A aptly named man Tom Hudson has died in Texas in an accident on the farm of his daughter Jackie and her husband Andrew Short. Known to many as “Subway Tom” because he owned restaurant chain franchises, Tom had been passionate about motocross forever. He helped his daughter Jackie in her WMX career, then followed Andrew’s career after they met. He was helping raise his grandchildren and just enjoying life on a Texas ranch when this tragic accident happened earlier this week. Godspeed, Tom Hudson, it was a pleasure meeting you and calling you a friend.

As soon as I walked through the door after a red eye flight back from Hangtown, I packed my bags and grabbed my wife so we could head back to the airport. We were going to Rome, Italy for a KTM event. The event was supposed to be secret but everyone knew it was a retirement announcement for Tony Cairoli. Rumors persisted, however. Couldn’t they just announce Tony’s retirement during a race? Were they planning a big shindig in Rome to announce something huge? Maybe a rebranding, or maybe come to the United States in 2022? Marvin Musquin’s new 2022 contract is only for supercross, maybe Tony will find a place next summer?

Well, it turns out that this big event was really just for Tony to announce his retirement. It is a great token of respect from KTM to organize a gala in Rome, far from the circuit, at a rooftop restaurant just off the famous Spanish Steps. Tony will continue to ride including testing for KTM and, yes, he wants to do some national motocross championships in the US next year. It’s not the full-time 12-round title assault that many have been hoping for, but it will be a lot of fun to see how he does if he does show up in America next year.

We weren’t in Rome to look ahead, however, we were there to look back on Tony’s incredible journey with 93 GP wins and nine FIM Motocross World Championships. He and his racing team De Carli switched to KTM for 2010, and the all new 350 SX-F, and immediately started winning. This proved that the new generation of motorcycles, with fuel injection and (finally) a rear suspension linkage, were capable. KTM Motorsports boss Pit Beirer believes Roger De Coster won’t even consider coming to KTM if Cairoli doesn’t start to dominate GPs on orange motorcycles, to begin with.

The relationship between Cairoli and KTM has been long and successful, but now the team has another generation of racers with Jeffrey Herlings in his prime and Jorge Prado entering his own. From what I could assume, there were a lot of people with three A-List contenders, and there were rumors that Prado might go in search of a new home. They can’t let that kind of talent slip away, so it becomes the focal point. Maybe Tony could have switched brands within the KTM group, but that wouldn’t make sense after all the success he’s had with the De Carli team, which will remain a KTM team with Prado.

Beirer, the boss, thinks it’s a good way out, with Tony still very competitive and even in contention for a tenth world championship. In a way, it sounds like Musquin’s chord for ’22. KTM’s real warhorses will now be Cooper Webb and the new Aaron Plessinger. KTM will bring Marvin back for the supercross, but it will ultimately be the Plessinger and Webb show, just as it will be Herlings and Prado in MXGP. Riders like Cairoli and Marvin might find a way to stay a few more years and collect paychecks, but I think KTM would rather they retire in orange.

So these are the racing stuff. I learned much more than that. I met Tony and his wife Jill, who are all classy. Prado was there too, and he’s hilarious, honest, and full of energy.

Our dinner table consisted of leading MXGP journalists, Adam Wheeler, Lewis Phillips and Ray Archer. Dirk Grubel, director of the Red Bull KTM team, also decided to sit at our table. We ran around the bench for hours, perhaps the most informative conversation I’ve had in the whole year, cramming so many MXGP stories, characters and personalities into one evening. When you consider the ties that unite the races – Dylan Ferrandis, the Lawrence brothers, Ken Roczen, Max Anstie and American riders like Webb, Musquin and Justin Barcia trying out different configurations of KTM GP teams – there is no shortage of things. . It was fascinating. Really my only regret is not being able to stay a few more days to attend this weekend’s GP in Sardenga, but I have already booked for a concert this weekend covering the MotoAmerica road races in Barber, in Alabama.

I left the event with some new acquaintances. First of all, Cairoli will be defined as much for his class and his character as for his success in the race. Second, KTM is in a second decade of major racing successes, and it is a challenge to ensure that the pioneers are honored properly. Why not just announce Cairoli’s retirement at a GP this weekend? Because that wouldn’t be classy enough. We saw things get a little tough at the end for Kailub Russell trying motocross this year, or with Ryan Dungey’s foray into ownership (briefly) with a Honda team. (Ryan is back on a KTM now.) KTM wants Tony’s racing output to be only good. Third, I learned how really cool the characters in the GP scene are. The fourth and most obvious element is how amazing Rome is as a city. We Americans may think of America as the hub of the world, but when you realize the scale, power, and reach that the Roman Empire once commanded, you realize that we are just tiny pieces of the world. a much larger story. Maybe I’ll write a little more about it next week. For now, I am leaving for another race, just like Tony Cairoli. Ciao!

On August 26, 1968, a growing protest – led by counterculture activists soon known as “Chicago 7” – reached its boiling point at the Democratic National Convention.

That same day, Marie Nevins sent a 5,500 mile postcard to her family in Rossmoor.

“Greetings from LONDON,” he boasts, with photos of Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Trafalgar Square.

“Wow, this is a city unlike anything you’ve ever dreamed of,” Nevins wrote on the back in perfect cursive.

But whether his son and daughter-in-law ever got the chance to read the glowing review is a mystery.

Fifty-three years after it was mailed on September 7, 2021, the postcard landed in a mailbox in Cedar City, Utah.

“I immediately recognized my grandmother’s handwriting,” recalls Betsy Bender. “I said to my husband, ‘What’s in the world? Where has that postcard been for five decades? ‘ “

Bender’s mother, Verna Baccus, resided in her period home in Rossmoor – complete with the scalloped eaves and fake birdhouses iconic from the tract – until her death on July 24 at the age of 91.

On August 30, a week before the postcard materialized, Bender and his sister, Teri Hunter, joined forces to clean up their mother’s belongings.

Before returning to Utah, Bender registered his address with the local post office for any late mail. She expected utility bills and the like, not a blast from the past.

Bender wonders if the postcard is a message from the other side, with his mother and grandmother letting their loved ones know they’re okay.

“Either that or they were like, ‘How can we play with her? now? ‘ Bender joked.

“My grandmother was very funny. She pulled out her false teeth just to hear her grandchildren laugh.

In the days leading up to his death, Baccus could not speak. So it was Bender who spoke.

“It was a one-sided conversation,” Bender said. “I’m not good at discussing anything. I just talked about all the fun we had traveling, our cruises, our helicopter flight over New York, the Panama Canal.

Through tears, Bender recalled asking his mother to send a message wherever his final destination is.

“I said, ‘I don’t know what’s going to happen. I hear about people getting signs. I don’t know if it’s possible. But if you can, please let me know.

“Then the postcard came,” Bender said. “It’s so weird.”

Or could there be a more earthly explanation?

Maybe, for example, the postcard went unnoticed in the heaps of things thrown out of her mother’s house. Maybe he blew out of a trash can on a sidewalk. Maybe a passerby picked it up and slipped it into a collection box. Maybe that’s how he went to Utah with a “change of address” sticker.

“We deliver every piece of mail, regardless of the date stamped on it,” said Evelina Ramirez, a spokeswoman for the US Postal Service.

“I guess that’s the case here, given the timing of everything.”

Even so, Ramirez admitted that long-lost letters languished undetected at post offices. “It happens,” she said. “Absolutely, things can fall behind furniture.

Bender accepts the possibility of either scenario.

“Yet to me it’s incredible that it comes to me just weeks after my mother died,” she said. “It must mean something.”

The youngest of three daughters, Bender was 10 when her grandmother left for the world.

“I remember taking her to the airport,” Bender said. “The whole family is gone. It was a big deal. “

Divorced, Nevins reunited with friends for the fantastic trip. “I look back now and can appreciate how independent she was,” Bender said.

Nevins, who died 25 years ago at the age of 98, lived in Long Beach, not far from her grandchildren. They often slept with “Grandma”.

“She made what she called pallets out of sheets and blankets,” Bender said. “She would make one too and sleep on the floor with us. She was a lot of fun.

Growing up in Rossmoor was idyllic, in Bender’s memory.

“You know, it was that typical baby boomer story, playing outside until dark, biking around the neighborhood, hanging out with friends,” Bender said. Her mother was busy; a Girl Scout manager, a softball manager, a school volunteer.

Of course, childhood without bumps is rare. At the end of 1968, a few months after this postcard was supposed to arrive, Bender’s parents divorced. Bender’s father, real estate investor Bud Baccus, continued to live nearby, in another house in Rossmoor. He died in 2012.

The Baccus sisters then graduated from the then newly built Los Alamitos High. (Toni Nelson, the oldest of the three, died last year.)

Their mother, Verna Baccus, who had taken time off from her career to raise children, resumed her job as a registered nurse. A passionate bridge player, she finally achieved the high status of “Diamond Life Master”.

“Mom was the smartest, most spiritual person,” Bender said. “She had her brain until her last breath.”

Retired after 30 years as a sales representative for Hewlett-Packard, Bender and her husband Randy moved to Utah a year ago.

Reading her grandmother’s postcard brought her a whiff of nostalgia. “It was wonderful to hear the excitement in his words,” Bender said. “I can imagine him sitting down and writing it down.”

While the 1968 British stamp, then worth around 15 cents, certainly did not cover today’s delivery costs, the card arrived with no strings attached, as a request for additional postage.

“It wouldn’t have been the right thing to do, given that the original date was so long ago,” USPS spokeswoman Ramirez said.

Leticia shared a photo wearing a white tank top, navy pants and a bandana around her neck.

She captioned the snap: “Hello. My name is Leticia. I’m building things and don’t know how to stop. #Restoftheworldissleeping #iforgottoeattoday.”

Leticia also shared a black and white snapshot of a room with a brick wall captioned: “closer every day”.

The American Pickers star, 57, and Leticia, 42, went public with their romance in August during a trip to her hometown of Le Claire, Iowa.

Earlier this month, Mike chose Leticia, as she posted videos to her Instagram Story of bikes, motorcycles, signs, cans and other vintage finds.

Mike’s voice could be heard in the background explaining how his hand had been injured by a dog bite.

Two have gotten serious in recent months, as she was recently pictured with Mike’s co-star Danielle Colby.

In August, Mike and Leticia spent a day shopping and attending a local parade in Iowa.

They were all smiling as she walked her Border Collie dog, Francie.

TO GET CLOSER

The two were also spotted sharing a steamy kiss as Leticia got into her van for the next stop.

The Playboy model was then pictured pushing a cart full of groceries, as her boyfriend stopped to take selfies with fans.

The couple also attended a local parade which is part of the Tugfest festival and were later seen at the Tugfest Tug-Of-War festival in Iowa.

The Beauty and the Geek alum once met the TV star’s mother, Rita, and she joined them for the festival.

Mike and Leticia even shared hot kisses during outings.

The happy trio then enjoyed the tug-of-war competition on the Mississippi River between Le Claire and the city of Port Byron, Illinois from a VIP tent.

MIKE’S PAST LOVE

The new romance comes after Mike’s ex Jodi filed for divorce in November 2020 after 10 years of marriage.

They share a 9 year old daughter, Charlie Faeth Wolfe.

FINALLY FRANK’S BORDER

Mike bringing Leticia in for the pickup comes after his co-star Frank Fritz was fired from the History Channel.

Frank, 57, last appeared on American Pickers in a March 2020 episode, as he took time to recover from back surgery, which left him with 185 stitches and two rods in the spine.

In his spare time Frank has lost 65 pounds as he leads a healthier lifestyle and is sober from alcohol.

He told The Sun he went into rehab for alcohol addiction in Iowa for 77 days and had been sober for 11 months.

Although Frank has expressed his desire to return to the History Channel show, Mike revealed that Frank was fired from the show on Instagram in July.

A BROKEN FRIENDSHIP

Frank had previously told the Sun about their argument, “I haven’t spoken to Mike for two years. He knew my back was fucked up, but he didn’t call me to ask how I was. It’s just like that.

“The show is tilted toward him 1000%. I can’t even lean that low to show you how much.

“It’s good. It’s like you have Aerosmith and there’s Steven Tyler and he’s the leader. I found my place, I’m second and he’s number one in the series. is not a problem with me, maybe he has a problem. “

Despite their feud, Mike, owner of Antique Archeology in Nashville, previously told The Sun he’d like to see his longtime friend on the reality show again.

Mike said: “We all care about Frank and we want him to come back on the show. I’d love to talk to him again, we would absolutely love to do it, but he just can’t get it right.

“Frank goes through a lot personally with addictions. It’s unfortunate that he made decisions that made him the way he is.”

The Banffshire Cycle Challenge returns to Banff on Sunday after a year off.

Cyclists will depart from the Deveron Community and Sports Center and have a choice of three routes.

Hosted by the Rotary Club of Banff, supported by Banff Round Table and The Inner Wheel Club of Banff, the event is in its eighth year after being postponed to 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It is designed to encourage participation by riders of all ages and abilities, from beginners to experienced riders.

The last challenge came in 2019 when thousands of pounds were raised for charity.

The Banffshire Cycle Challenge will start from the Whinhill Road parking lot at the Deveron Community Sports Center in Banff.

A Rotary club spokesperson said, “The Banff Rotary Club has a long history of organizing local charitable events such as Classic and Classic Car Day, as well as supporting other events, and we wanted to promote an activity that is growing in popularity, is fun, improves success and creates well-being.

“The longest course for those looking for a challenge is 25.5 miles, the intermediate course is eight miles and the short course designed for people with reduced abilities, families and young children is approximately four miles. .

“All routes pass through areas of picturesque rural countryside with stunning views over the Banffshire countryside.

“The routes follow paved roads, with the longer route suitable for both high performance racing bikes and mountain bikes. However, the event is designed as a challenge, not a race.

The event was organized to raise funds for Rotary-supported charities, local organizations and local youth sport development.

There is also an opportunity for groups to raise funds for their own organizations through sponsorship, recouping at least 75 percent of the sponsorship raised.

All three cycle paths will depart from the Whinhill Road parking lot at the Deveron Community and Sports Center at 10 a.m. on Sunday. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Participants should not congregate too much before the start time in the start / finish area at Whinhill Road. All cyclists must register before participating in the challenge and must comply with safety guidelines.

Registration can be done in advance for each person either online on the registration page at banffshirecc.weebly.com/online-registration-2021.html

Participants can also download the registration form and mail it to the Banff Rotary Club, c / o Macduff Dental, 52 Duff Street, Macduff AB44 1LQ or by email at banffshirecyclechallenge@gmail.com

Online registration closes at 6 p.m. on Saturday. People can also register in person on the day of the bike challenge with registration facilities open from 9 a.m.

Group registration can be done by downloading the form from banffshirecc.weebly.com/taking-part.html

All participants are encouraged to raise as much sponsorship money as possible. Sponsorship forms for individuals and families can also be downloaded from the participants’ web page.

It is recommended that sponsorship funds be returned to registration facilities on the day of the cycling challenge, if possible.

Otherwise, the sponsorship money must be returned as soon as possible after the cycle challenge to the address indicated on the downloadable registration form.

For those not raising a sponsorship, a voluntary donation of £ 10 per person is suggested to participate in the event. Children under 16 do not need to donate.

Individuals or families who collect more than £ 25 sponsorship and hand over the money on the same day will not be required to make a voluntary £ 10 donation.

Recognized groups and organizations can participate in the cycle challenge to raise funds for their own funds.

Free entry will be offered to group members if more than £ 100 of sponsorship is raised. At least 75 percent of this sponsorship will go to the group or organization. Sponsorship forms for groups can be downloaded from the participants’ web page.

There is no time limit in completing either route, but yardage, assistance services, medical coverage and start / finish area facilities will not remain. not in place after 1:30 p.m. on the day of the event.

Trailer features Rocky Mountain Roastery coffee from Durango

Mark and Beth Gouge are among the vendors who perform an essential service at the Durango Farmers’ Market: caffeine lovers who are not naturally morning people.

Their business, Cardinal Coffee, is the mobile retail arm of Rocky Mountain Roastery, a Durango-based roaster that does most of its business directly with consumers from its website, said Mark Gouge.

“When I moved here I ran into (Wade Wilderman) an old buddy who I mountain biked with together in Winter Park,” he said. “He’s the roaster, and he’s been roasting for over 25 years. So he and I connected more on the mountain biking level and then I started doing sales for him … expanding his footprint in the Durango region.

Gouge once said he was at the National Interscholastic Cycling Association State Championships in Durango Mesa Park when he saw a trailer that at the time belonged to Chris Lopez of Singletrack Café (who has since put set up a shop on Rivergate Lane).

“We saw that and started talking… maybe taking the show on the road,” Gouge said. “People have to taste Kool-Aid, so to speak, before they invest and change. The idea was to get people to buy directly from consumers.

He said they interpreted the fact that it was a vintage Cardinal trailer as a sign – leading to the name of the mobile cafe.

“We have a deep meaning with the cardinal,” he said. “My father was a pilot… he had a Cessna 177 Cardinal. And then, when my mother passed away, they say if you see a cardinal, it means they are fine. We saw a Cardinal in Winter Park in a snowstorm, so the Cardinal has always been pretty important to us.

Gouge bought the trailer just before the pandemic, he said, and as such didn’t have many places to take it in the first year of operation.

“All the events were canceled, and that was the whole idea – just to go to the events,” he said. “So we just started parking in the neighborhoods – in Durango West, Edgemont and Three Springs. We were just trying to understand. “

This year, the Durango Farmers Market has been the coffee trailer’s favorite haunt, he said. Cardinal Coffee has also followed the cyclist along the Ride the Rockies route and will be at Telluride’s Blues & Brews Festival this month.

“We’re finally getting our feet on the ground, and we’ve got a lot of people repeating that the first thing they do at the farmers’ market is come and get their coffee,” Gouge said.

Cardinal Coffee sells hot and iced coffee, chai, and tea.

Gouge said Wilderman is known as the “master of black roast”.

“It’s super cool because Rocky Mountain Roastery coffee is unique in that it’s an old-fashioned dark roast guy, and it’s just super smooth,” Gouge said. “It’s a very unique way of roasting, as many shops in town and across the country have sort of gone for this slightly roasted, nutty, fruity flavor.”

September events still planned despite the postponement of Bikes, Blues & BBQ https://vintagetype.com/september-events-still-planned-despite-the-postponement-of-bikes-blues-bbq/ https://vintagetype.com/september-events-still-planned-despite-the-postponement-of-bikes-blues-bbq/#respond Sat, 28 Aug 2021 08:51:55 +0000 https://vintagetype.com/september-events-still-planned-despite-the-postponement-of-bikes-blues-bbq/ FAYETTEVILLE – Bikes, Blues & BBQ may be postponed, but events are still planned at Rogers, and some people say they plan to come.

FAYETTEVILLE – Bikes, Blues & BBQ may be postponed, but events are still planned at Rogers, and some people say they plan to come.

Festival organizers announced the postponement Thursday night, just after the University of Arkansas announced it would withdraw the agreement allowing the rally to use its parking lots.

The festival’s main stage, previously scheduled for September 22-25, was to be moved to the east grounds of Baum-Walker Stadium from the grounds of the city’s Walton Arts Center on Dickson Street. In a press release, festival organizers said they felt they could not deliver a quality event after such a massive short-term change.

The status of the rally has been called into question after the Washington Regional Medical Center sent a letter this week to the city and later to festival leaders, the University and the City of Rogers saying hospital resources are already being pushed to the limit due to an increase in covid-19 cases. Hosting the festival “would invite disaster,” the letter said.

Also this week, the Fayetteville Board of Health and city administration agreed that rally organizers should cancel or postpone the event for the same reasons Washington Regional described.

Birch Wright, director of operations for Washington Regional, told the city board of health that hospitals in the area are concerned about the lack of staff and resources to deal with the higher number of trauma patients who are typically admitted during the meeting. Moreover, gathering up to 300,000 people nearby could spread covid-19 even more than it has already done in the region, he said.

Bikes, Blues & BBQ is run by a non-profit board. Tommy Sisemore, executive director, said the organization will monitor hospitalizations over the next 30 to 90 days and plan accordingly from there. The weather will play a role, so if hospitalizations are not tempered by winter, a spring rally might be possible, he said.

“There is so much we don’t know right now,” Sisemore said. “We don’t know what we don’t know, and right now that’s a lot.”

The board likely would have postponed the event regardless of the university’s decision, Sisemore said. The situation has always been fluid, he said.

“The conversation was definitely going in that direction,” Sisemore said. “They wanted to have all the information they could in their hands from as many sources as possible.”

The post on the Bikes and Blues Facebook page announcing the postponement received around 2,000 comments by Friday afternoon. Most of the comments were from people saying they were still planning to travel to town. A number of motorcyclists traveled to Fayetteville and other towns in the region last year even though the rally was canceled months in advance over concerns over covid-19.

Sisemore said he suspected most people considering coming were not doing so in protest, but more because horseback riding is a naturally distanced activity. Although there is no main stage in Fayetteville with groups, many people enjoy the area and come for the driving experience, he said.

The board never intended to increase the number of patients treated at hospitals in the region, Sisemore said. The rally planned for outdoor events only, with the presence of medical staff and vaccination clinics, he said.

“Our hearts are with all healthcare workers, nationally and not just locally. This is a global pandemic,” Sisemore said. “I don’t think there’s a way to diminish what they’re going through. It’s an absolute tragedy that the United States as a whole is facing.”

Many on Facebook have questioned the university’s decision to withdraw the deal with Bikes and Blues while staging Razorback football matches that could draw around 70,000 people.

University spokesperson Mark Rushing cited the hospital’s reasoning as the difference. The multi-day festival sees more patients arriving in emergency rooms than football games, and hospitals must recruit additional staff to prepare. There are no additional people for the staff.

Washington Regional “has confirmed that they can meet the needs of a typical game day, but not the needs they typically encounter during the multi-day rally,” Rushing said.

Masks will be required in indoor spaces when social distancing cannot be maintained at Reynolds Razorback Stadium and on Razorback Transit buses to and from the games, he said.

The main stage was to be in Fayetteville, but other events associated with or coinciding with the rally were also planned outside the city. Camping at Parsons Stadium will no longer take place.

For now, it looks like the events at Rogers are still ongoing. Pig Trail Harley-Davidson has its Rally Off Exit 86 scheduled for September 18-26.

The dealership held their event on private property last year when Bikes and Blues canceled. Hundreds of people attended with restrictions set by the state health ministry.

The Rogers Downtown Rotary Club is looking into holding its Frisco Inferno BBQ contest, the official Bikes and Blues barbecue competition, although the festival board does not control it. The event is scheduled for September 25.

The club sees the competition, on South First Street near Railyard Live at Butterfield Stage, as an event for locals and people who will be in town anyway, said Rick McLeod, a club member who helps run the competition. .

“We don’t feel like we’re attracting people to the area, which is an obvious and specific concern. I understand where the medical community is coming from on this,” he said. “Our thought process is that these people are already here, and we’re just having a little barbecue.”

Rogers Downtown Partners is due to host a vintage motorcycle exhibit, also on September 25, in a parking lot west of the Harley-Davidson Pig Trail, said McLeod, chairman of the merchant group’s board.

However, plans could change, McLeod said. The city could still withdraw permission to use public streets for these events, he said.

A spokesperson for Rogers said there had been no change in the schedule for the Railyard Live concerts scheduled for September 24 and 25.

LARAGH-GLENDALOUGH

New Facebook page on local wildflowers

The community of Laragh and Glendalough is home to a beautiful variety of wildflowers which bloom during the summer months. Although they often go unnoticed, these wildflowers are an important food source for our pollinators. A new Facebook page has been created to document, using photos, the wildflowers growing in the area and to provide information on their names and distribution. The page is available on: Facebook.

Sustainable energy community

The names of everyone who completed our 2020 Home Energy Survey were entered into the draw for a MiHome Home Energy Monitor Kit. Kudos to Michael Cullen, who was the winner of the kit. We wish Michael all the best in monitoring and improving the energy consumption in his home.

The Energy Survey was conducted as part of our SEAI funding to explore options for improving energy efficiency in the community. We recently received a report based on the results of the Three County Energy Agency survey, and are now planning next steps based on the feedback.

The UN Climate Change Report (released August 9) clearly sets out the challenge ahead, even for small rural communities such as Laragh / Glendalough. Climate degradation is now “widespread, rapid and escalating” and the window to prevent catastrophic change is closing rapidly. The report also warns of increasingly extreme heatwaves, droughts and floods, and a key temperature limit passed in just over a decade.

Improving energy efficiency in our communities is crucial to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and breaking our dependence on fossil fuels. We all have a role to play and government support will be essential in helping the rapid transition to a clean and sustainable future.

Inner and summer songs by the sea

The weather could not cool the mood of the spectators of the concert last Saturday. We thank all the organizers and artists (Hothouse Flowers, Leslie Dowdall, Mark Caplice and Mobile Music Machine) who brought the Valley into musical bliss with energy and talent to please a very grateful audience in 2021.

The quaking bog

We’re excited to announce our 2021 dates – September 10-12 as we bring our writers, artists, performers and creative audiences back to our beautiful home in Wicklow.

The Glencree Valley will once again be brought to life by a host of renowned writers, artists and nature experts for a dense program of events.

So please jot down the dates in your diaries, get your rubber boots ready and make plans to join us for a dynamic blend of artistic engagement and nature immersion. For more information, check out our website shakebog.ie or follow us @theshakingbog on social media. To become a friend of the festival, see our website for more information.

Rain was forecast in the area and management went out of their way to keep the show going to stay ahead of the forecast. Thanks to everyone’s cooperation, the feat was accomplished. When the final checkerboard fell for the 602 Sportsman Crate feature, it started to rain heavily.

Doug “The Handler” Manmiller ended his winless drought and put Jason and Theresa Miller’s No.44 in victory lane ahead of runner-up Jeff Strunk for his first win of the season in over two years in the 30-lap NASCAR Advance. Auto Parts Weekly Series TP Trailers Functionality changed on Saturday night at Grandview Speedway. The last time Manmiller was in the winner’s circle was July 20, 2019.

Current Sportsman points leader Kenny Gilmore captured his second 25-lap Sportsman event TP Truck Equipment chased by Jimmy Leiby. Gilmore dedicated the victory to one of his former car owners, the recently deceased Freddy Hamm.

Dylan Swinehart earned his second 602 Sportsman Crate victory in 25 rounds of the current season by fending off the challenges of second Dylan Hoch.

Darrin Schuler quickly took the lead in the modified function and on lap five a three-way battle for first place ensured between Schuler, John Willman and Mike Lisowski, leaving Nate Brinker, Erin Biehn and the other 28 starting cars. in pursuit.

A side-to-side battle between Schuler and Willman continued as the race progressed. Willman eventually managed to clear him and became the new point guard in the sixth round.

In the 14th round, the classification of the first five consisted of Willman, Schuler, Brett Kressley, Manmiller and Lisowski who started respectively third, first, 15th, 13th and fourth.

As soon as Kressley passed third place, a huge pillar of smoke billowed out of the engine bay on turn four causing him to stop in the first turn for the first and only yellow on lap 15. Willman held the lead when the action resumed, but now Manmiller, Strunk, Mike Gular and Jack Butler have joined in the chase.

The lead was traded for the third time when Manmiller took over the reins while Willman and Strunk set off for the second.

Strunk came second on lap 23 and chased Manmiller who had to deal with traffic on lap. Manmiller’s meeting allowed Strunk to erase the margin he had built up to push for first place.

Manmiller was determined to keep the competition behind him and he did so by stepping down the path to victory for his 29th career victory. Having a better finish this week compared to the Forrest Rogers Memorial, Strunk was followed by former points champion Gular, who raced there as his regular Saturday night track did not have Modifieds scheduled; Willman, for his best run in a while and Duane Howard. Butler, Lisowski, Biehn, Schuler and Ryan Grim round out the top ten.

The qualifying heats were won by Biehn, Willman, Schuler and Brinker. Craig Von Dohren and Rick Laubach won the consies.

Hunter Iatalese wasted no time in retaining his starting pole position in the Sportsman function while Colton Perry, BJ Joly, Bryan Rhoads and Mark Gaugler set off in pursuit.

Dakota Kohler sped along the straight for yellow with a turn in the books. On the restart, the red was thrown as Rhoads spun into the first turn and Joly rolled slowly into the second turn. Joly was not injured, but the car sustained considerable damage. Iatalese was still first in the restart, but at that point, Leiby was second behind Perry, Gilmore and Mike Schneck. Hoch and Kyle Smith were trying to break into the top five.

With 16 laps completed, the battle for the lead was five between Iatalese, Leiby, Gilmore, Hoch and Kyle Smith.

As he ran third on lap 17 after the fourth corner, Gilmore made a bold move to pass Leiby and Iatalese and take over first.

Gilmore never looked back once he took control and earned his seventh career division victory, followed by Leiby, Hoch, Smith and Brian Hirthler. Iatalese, Schneck, Nathan Mohr, Mark Kemmerer and Kyle Lilick round out the top ten.

The heats were won by BJ Joly, Iatalese, Rhoads and Lilick while Mike Stofflet and Matt Yoder won the consies.

Rick Wegner Jr. led the 602 Crate Sportsman race for one lap before Tyler Peet took over.

A backstretch accident involving several cars brought out the yellow on lap five. On the restart, Dylan Swinehart took first place, leaving Peet, Ryan Grim, Hoch and Cody Manmiller diced for the remaining positions.

Red was thrown on lap 14 when Leiby rolled into turn four. He was not injured, but the car sustained heavy damage. It was still Swinehart in the driver’s seat on the reboot, but now Hoch was second in trying to take the boys’ route followed by Grim, Peet, Manmiller and Richie Hitzler.

Positions behind Swinehart were sometimes traded, but he never gave up the lead and went on to win back-to-back functions. Hoch was second, followed by Grim, Peet and Hitzler. Manmiller, Doug Snyder, Ryan Beltz, Wegner Jr. and Talan Carter were sixth to ten.

Wegner Jr., Peet and Grim won the heats.
