Weather is turning much cooler, with temperatures in the low 30’s over the weekend and some pretty windy conditions at times. Have you noticed the leaves are starting to change color. So, it’s coming…………..don’t like it, but can’t change Mother Nature’s mind and give us warm weather for a while yet. Haven’t heard or seen any geese going over yet, but I’m sure it won’t be long. I think the humming birds have already left. The gardens and flower beds are winding down. We do see many turkeys every day going back and forth and a few deer now and then.
Congratulations to Maranna Nitcznski who won the title of Outstanding Young Woman and to Danielle Reeser who was named third runner-up. Lauren Chase also was a contestant and did a fantastic job with her vocal of “Sound of Music”. This event was held Saturday evening at the Towanda Jr./Sr. High School in Towanda. Second year in a row with a winner from Sullivan County.
The month of October will soon be here and still a few things going on around the County. Keep an eye on the Sully to see what, where and when; there may be something of interest to you.

HINT: “For a cool brownie treat, make brownies as directed. Melt Andes mints in a double broiler and pour over warm brownies. Let set for a wonderful minty frosting.” (That sounds pretty good; better than those sweet icings.)
Happy Birthday wishes to Kurt Schroeder, 29th. Have a good day.

Happy Anniversary in October to Tony and Donna (Lansberry) Cikovic as they celebrate on the 2nd. Hope it’s a good one.
From Mr. Neubauer’s little brown book: September 25, 1980 – 48 degrees with light rain. Our weather, same day was no rain, cool temperatures with some sun and windy, 62 degrees.
Some of the Borick off-spring enjoyed the Fall weather down at “Tent City” over the weekend. They all like Lopez in any kind of weather.
I think that’s the news for now. Enjoy your week, whatever your plans. Bloomsburg Fair is in full swing this week, so take a trip down that way. Of course, that’s why we’ll have rain toward the end of the week. Almost every year there is rain sometime during the Fair. Have news call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll get it in for you. Thanks for reading and I’ll be here next time.
MARANNA NITCZNSKI WINS OUTSTANDING YOUNG WOMAN TITLE
Sullivan County’s Miss Maranna Nitcznski won the 2017 OYW title, held Saturday evening at Towanda Jr./Sr. High School. She also won the award for Aerobics and Fitness. Her Mixed Martial Arts demonstration was great. Our Miss Danielle Reeser was named Third Runner-Up. Her original monologue, “How I Learned How to Survive Sullivan County”, was so funny, cute and said it all. The other winners were: Fourth Runner-Up: Abigail Martin, Canton Jr./Sr. High School; Second Runner-Up: Ezoza Ismailova, Towanda Are Jr./Sr. High School; First Runner-Up: Adriana Romano, Sayre Area School District. The other Sullivan County participant, Lauren Chase, did an excellent and enjoyable vocal performance of “Sound of Music”. What a powerful voice she has. All the girls did well and all really are winners. The Sullivan County 2016 OYW winner and co host this year was Bridget Reed.
Sullivan County can be very proud of these four young ladies who participated in the 2017 OYW program.
