STPR 2015 – LOCAL DRIVER HIGHLIGHTS
On Friday & Saturday (June 5th and 6th) thousands of people from both Tioga County and around the globe came to Wellsboro to experience the 39th annual Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally. The STPR is the oldest and fasted rally event in North America, as drivers fly through the woodland stages at speeds up to 100mph. The gravel and clay roads, heavy dust and dense tree population create a challenging environment for the drivers.

This year’s rally found a number of Tioga County locals participating, including Antonio Esposito of Wellsboro, Philip Barnes of Middlebury Center, Charles Tameris of Wellsboro, Matthew James of Westfield, Jeffrey Carl of Wellsboro, Derek Smith of Wellsboro, Amber Wetzel of Blossburg, and Jeremy Keck of Wellsboro.

STPR 2015 – WHAT MAKES STPR GREAT
Aakash Desai and co-driver Uttara competed and finished in their 2000 Subaru Impreza for the Northern Sky Rally Team. The first rally they attended in America was this STPR in Wellsboro. They later volunteered to work at this event and eventually decided this would be the perfect rally in which to compete. Of course, with Aakash’s demanding work as a physician and Uttara’s similarly challenging job in the mental health field, it took some time for this weekend to come about. Now this past weekend, their dream came true! As with many of the competitors, to Aakash and Uttara the rally is a sport rather than a vocation. They sincerely enjoyed coming to Wellsboro for this event. Thanks to the warm welcome, it feels like home to them.

BECAUSE IT’S CHEMISTRY
About two months ago, I decided to try to spice up the curriculum to my 11th grade chemistry class, by attempting to write a song parody to Disney’s Frozen “Let It Go.” The name of my song was “Chemists Know” and it was about a topic called stoichiometry (calculations of chemical quantities, such as the mole quantity). I bought an mp3 version of the song and recorded over. It was not a great recording – but the kids loved and started singing it all around the school. Their enthusiastic response to this song got me thinking…could they actually write a chemistry song?

However, Snyder continues to teach through his own licensed driving instruction program that has been operating for two years. Students (16+) and residents of any age may enroll. However, potential students must have acquired their own valid driver’s permit before they can be admitted.
