I you decide to take a leisurely ride over Lilly Mountain to the Puzzletown Road make sure you use a truck, quad or Jeep. The road in Juniata Township is notorious, with deep gaps in the road where rain run off has washed it out.


The firemen’s carnival here in Lilly is in full swing. Open each night at 7:00 PM it is a great way to spend the evening and enjoy a funnel cake or hot sausage sandwich. The annual parade will be held Friday evening at 6:30 PM. The line up starts at the War Memorial field and the participants will move down Piper Street turn left on Portage Street to Washington Street, turn right to Main Street and then up Main Street, The viewing stand will be at the Lilly Fire Hall.


The roar of many motorcycles passing through town has died down as the annual Thunder in the Valley in the Johnstown area has come to a close. Next stop will be Bike Week in Ocean City this September 13 through 15th.


There is a new casino at Rocky Gap Park near Cumberland Maryland that just opened in June. It is easy to get to in just over an hour drive by going to Bedford, down 220 South to Interstate 68 and a few miles east. My sister Eileen and I checked it out last week and lo and behold I hit a jackpot of over 1.400 dollars. This put Rocky Gap on my favorite casino list (at least for now).


Sympathy is extended to the family and friends of Regina Skura and Rosemary Davis, wife of Fred Davis, both women recently passed away.
