Steiner holds the Guinness World Record for skips — 88. (Steiner lives on a mountain in Emporium, hence his nickname.) The Herald’s own Dave ‘Spiderman’ Ohmer, of Corry, a two-time PA Stone Skipping champ, took second place this year, with 37 skips. Skipping into third place was Brian Ferry, of Warren.
