Help needed to pass landowner liability bill HB 544.

We all have been working hard to get this bill passed through the Pa. House. Well, with the help of a lot of our representatives, including Mike Hanna, the bill was passed in the House in April 2016.
This liability bill has laid in the Pa. Senate since then. So, we need your help to contact your local Pa. State Senators too bring this bill up for a vote.
Senator Yaw is chair person in the Senate and the other Senators need to bring it to his attention to bring it up for a vote.
Local people of Centre County can contact Jake Corman's Office in Bellefonte at 814-355-0477 and ask Senator Corman to support this bill and bring it up for a vote.
We need this bill passed to help get trail extensions on private property. This bill protects the private landowner.
If this bill does not get voted on in the next couple weeks, it will be returned to Congress. So, please act right away.
Thank you all.

4th Annual Carns-SSRT Pig Roast

Kurt Climie and the Carns crew pulled in early for the event, bringing along a great selection of atvs-utvs for display and demo. They also brought along a few baskets to raffle off from Been Kind Winery. They donated the baskets and all proceeds will be donated to the SSRT. The Centre County Probation Office also supplied some much needed helpers too. Chris, Kyle, Jim Vangor did a wonderful job cooking the hogs. Andy Basalla also helped to watch them over night. Eric Brooks did a nice job stitching them up after Kyle stuff the hogs. Thank you Gary Halsnick, Lyn Timblin, Mark Watson for helping step up and get the pigs cut up in the absence of Carole & Charles Jensen. Great turnout and support for the event and the trail. Thank you to all the other volunteers that helped make this event a success. Without all of you, there would be no trail.

Steve Seltzer Powersports is Hiring!!!!
Please excuse the interruption, but I would like to do some networking today!
Finding good employees has never been more difficult, and right now I need a few of them!
The positions that we are currently recruiting for include:
Salesperson to sell motorcycles, ATVs, side-by-sides, and scooters.
Title Clerk (detail oriented person to handle all of the paperwork associated with the sale of these products who can also sell extended warranties, GAP insurance, other back-end products, and handle the title work with the state. This position could be part time or full time.)
Accounting / Business Manager (part time position or full time if combined with the title clerk position above. This is another detail oriented person who would do all of the internal accounting- payables, receivables, bank deposits, etc. This position would be great for someone with a finance or accounting background or even a retiree with an accounting background who would still like to stay active but may not want to work full time.)
Service Technicians (someone experienced in the repair of what we sell. If they have service experience with auto or truck those skills are somewhat transferrable, but experience with power sports is a plus.)
If you know someone who might be looking for a new position, and they have any of the above skills or interests, and you think they would make a good addition to our team, would you let me know so that I might contact them? Or feel free to let them know that we are looking for a few good people.
Either way, your help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time!

On July 20, 2016, Shawley Septic Systems came to Gillentown Trailhead to pump out the Romtec Restrooms. As you can see by the pictures, abuse of the restrooms has happened once again. Total disrespect for the facilities and such a shame to those with no common sense who use a restroom for a trash can. Fluorescent tube, branch from tree, water & beer bottles,cans, plastic bags, large pieces of limestone- too large to get out-what a disgrace.
Rules of the trail is what you bring in you take out. Such abuse only makes the cleaning of this facility 10 times harder and more expensive. Should membership dues be raised to cover this extra cost?? Food for thought. This will be discussed and monitored in the future. Maybe some cameras are needed adjacent to restrooms to capture abusers taking trash in. We are all volunteers that maintain the SSRT and this sure opens our eyes when trying to fight for more trails. WHY? When people don't care.
If anyone sees someone carrying trash items into restrooms, please get their license numbers and description of the person and advise any officer of the SSRT. Membership will be revoked of anyone caught taking items into restroom and disposing of them.
