For the first time in 69 years, there will not be a Midwest Old Threshers Reunion in Mount Pleasant.The Midwest Old Settlers and Threshers board of directors has decided to cancel the event, held for five days every year, always ending on Labor Day. The Reunion draws thousands of people from all over the United States and around the world. Terry McWilliams, the C-E-O and administrator, says the health implications of holding the Reunion could have had a far reaching impact. “The safety and the health and the well-being of our visitors, our volunteers — all of that played a key factor in making this decision,” McWilliams says. “We waited as long as we could…Every day things changed — the loss of key volunteers, the loss of community civic groups doing their support because people are scared — and that has an impact.” McWilliams says expense estimates were going up and up every day as they navigated through necessary health precautions they’d have to take to hold the event. Plans are now focused the 2021 Old Threshers Reunion.
By Allison Perrine Commissioner Patricia M. Butch said she found it interesting that in the sports trend analysis, the percentage of children who play team and individual sports regularly has declined. “That’s the only one that I saw that has really declined and I think that that has helped move everybody to more passive recreation and some of the alternative programs that the parks system provides,” she noted. “I think it’s great that we offer so many alternatives.” According to the 2018 annual report from the county park system, there were a total of over 6.4 million park visits and 6,230 recreation programs offered. New facilities were added to county parks, such as benches at Fisherman’s Cove Conservation Area, and maintenance and improvement projects were completed, such as the replacement of barn roof wood shingles at Longstreet Farm. There are already dozens of programs offered to locals in Monmouth County, involving nature, art, crafts, sports, fitness, history and much more. Conroy presented a few in each category though there are many additional offered around the county, including nature programs at Sandy Hook, Brookdale Community College and Poricy Park; art programs at Brookdale, the Middletown Arts Center and Monmouth Arts in Red Bank; sports programs at the Atlantic Club, Good Sports USA and All Sports; fitness programs at YMCAs, the Atlantic Club and Brookdale; history programs at Howell Living History Farm, Twin Lights and the Monmouth County Historical Association; among many others. “Participants went on a total of 10.9 billion outdoor outings in 2017,” she said. “Young kids tend to be more active overall…and bird watching is up 6.1 percent.” Pickleball is also up by over 3 percent nationally, Conroy said, with additional increased participation in hiking, running, kayaking, volleyball, fishing, fitness classes, tai chi, family programs and active adult programs, among others. Noting these spikes in interest, the Monmouth County Park System is expanding its programs in these areas, Conroy said. Sports trends show that camping, fishing and biking have become some of the most popular activities for several age groups, though levels of interest vary, she said. Trends show that millennials are more likely than other generations to participate in water sports, including paddle boarding and surfing. For additional information about the Monmouth County Park System, visit monmouthcountyparks.com. According to Conroy, recreation trends show that fitness and sports continue to have the highest participation rates nationwide. As part of a presentation to board members, Conroy reviewed a recreation services plan for feedback – and she hopes, approval – at the next meeting in September. This will be the first recreation services plan update since 2010. MIDDLETOWN — Pickleball, bird watching and paddle boarding are among the rising recreation trends nationwide, superintendent of recreation Patti Conroy told the Monmouth County Board of Recreation Commissioners Monday. She also presented a handful of offerings the county park system has for locals in addition to programs from private and public organizations. Responding to an additional question from Butch, Conroy said this plan is interconnected with the open space plan and park master plan in the county.“This plan is one of the standards that has to be updated every three to five years in order for us to pass and keep our certification,” Conroy said. The next Monmouth County Board of Recreation Commissioners meeting is set for 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 9 at Thompson Park.

Ronique Williams underlined his utter dominance by winning a third MoBay City Run overall title yesterday. It was brilliant run from the defending two-time winner, who used his experience to win the 10 kilometre road race. Williams’ time of 36 minutes 10 seconds was too great a mountain for the other competitors with none able to break the 40-minute barrier. Andrew Gayle ran 41:01 for second, while Carlyle Russell crossed the finish line in third place with a time of 41:20. A jubilant Williams said the win was the most challenging of his three titles, mainly because he was tired from running another event the day before. “This was the most difficult one of the three years that I have won; but I was strong enough and quick enough to still post a good time and win a third MoBay City Run title,” he said. The female 10K title went to Chris-Ann Lewis, who stopped the clock at 45 minutes and 11 seconds for first place, while Karlene Blagrove ran second in 47: 09 seconds. Third went to Pauline Murphy in a time of 48: 17 seconds. Juliett Dinnal took the female top position in the 5K run, while Horace Burey stayed true to form in landing the men’s equivalent. The event which attracted close to 4,000 participants in the 5K Run/Walk and 10K run races, also saw perennial senior female champion 76-year-old Gerline Nelson once again making her mark in the 5K run. It was Williams’ day however and he defended his title with guts and class before promising to return next year to do it all over again. “I love this event; I look forward to participating in the MoBay City Run because of this road race stands for,” said Williams. “It is a very important event and it puts me in the spotlight, which encourages me to keep doing what I do. I will be back next year,” he added. MoBay City Run is a charity road race from which funds will go to needy students attending the three tertiary institutions, UWI-Western Campus, University of Technology (Western Campus) and the Montego Bay Community College.
LAS VEGAS — Joe Thornton had for years been a part of the Boston Bruins’ storied rivalry with the Montreal Canadiens, and has dressed for countless games against both the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks in his 14-plus seasons with the Sharks.Right now, though, no rivalry for the Sharks quite compares to playing the Vegas Golden Knights.“I always thought that L.A. was probably going to be their big rival, or Anaheim,” Thornton said of the Golden Knights. “But no, it’s us.”Everyone knows …
