Winter Wonderland: What to do in Western New York (Part I) By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

The holidays are over, but here in Western New York, we still have to deal with a few long, cold, dark months of winter. No, wait. Winter in this part of the country can actually provide some wonderful opportunities for fun. Whether you like to go out and brave (or even embrace) the elements or if you want to stay bundled up inside with a cup of hot chocolate, let’s explore some options for ways to make the most of this winter. SKI/SNOWBOARD This is the obvious one, right? Many people wait all year to be able to hit the slopes. I’ve never actually skied and to say that I’ve snowboarded would only be true in the academic sense. When I was a kid I got a snowboard for Christmas and would take it to the hill on the Fredonia State campus, but that hardly seems like it counts when compared to other options in the area. Peek’n Peak in Clymer is right here in Chautauqua County and is an awesome option. Holiday Valley is a short drive to Ellicottville. Holimont is another option right in Ellicottville. Kissing Bridge is a local favorite over in Glenwood, NY. All of these places have slopes ranging from beginner to advanced. There are certainly lessons available if you’re interested in getting started in a new winter hobby. For another option in this winter sport category, you should consider cross country skiing or snowshoeing (which, incidentally, is a very awkward looking word). I’ve done both and vastly prefer snowshoeing, but that’s mostly because the last time I went I swear I walked right into Narnia. The snow was covering the trees and the ground just perfectly, but the sun was shining, the wind was calm – it was idyllic. Truly, I’ve been afraid to go again because it’ll be impossible to top that one day. Still, snowshoeing is a ton of fun and there are plenty of local places to rent equipment for either activity. There’s also a nice list of trails on www.tourchautauqua.com/trails-and-parks.aspx. PLAY OUTSIDE WITH THE KIDS

You probably don’t have to build a snowman that’s this tall, but it could still be fun to get out there and partake in this childhood favorite activity. (AP Photo/Ilya Naymushin)

I’m combining several things into one fun-filled category. Remember building snow forts or having snowball fights? Remember building a snowman and making snow angels? Those are probably all things that you haven’t even considered doing in years. But why not? Sure your old snow pants probably don’t fit anymore, but as you’re looking out the window while doing dishes, wouldn’t you rather be out there with the kids chucking snowballs? We all have responsibilities, but those will still be there after we come in and warm up with some grilled cheese and tomato soup. Go out and have some fun. HOCKEY I put out a Facebook request to my friends to find out what they like to do in winter. Hockey was an overwhelming response. Luckily there are several options for entertainment on ice in this area. First off, we have the Buffalo Sabres just a short ride away. They’re an exciting young team that’s on the rise. There’s also the Erie Otters just across the state border. Some of the NHL’s next big stars are playing there for your enjoyment. There’s not only

the pros, however. The Fredonia Blue Devils are not only entertaining, but they run some great events like Pink the Rink. The Southern Tier Xpress play in the North American Tier III Hockey League and their home games are right in Jamestown at Northwest Arena. The team is often dotted with some local Chautauqua County talent, too. The NCYHHA Steelers have teams across several age brackets and play their home games at Steele Hall on the Fredonia campus. The DunkirkFredonia Steelers won the state championship last year, so this is some great high school hockey. There are even “beer leagues” that feature some immensely talented local players. If you’re in the mood to watch some hockey, there’s almost certainly an option every night. BAKE/COOK This one was on the fall list, too, but it probably fits even better here. There are so many good chili recipes out there. Make a huge pot – chili is even better after it’s been in the fridge for a few days. You may have done all your cookie making before the holidays, but

what’s a few more batches? It’s the perfect time of year to have the oven on, so break out those cookbooks or hit up Pinterest for some ideas for tasty treats. Katy Wise often shares some outstanding recipes in her column, too, so keep an eye out for those. Again it’s something that might have been done already at this point in the season, but it seems like this is the time of year for pierogi for us Polish folk. I made several batches so they’ll be in the freezer for the next few months. How does this area not have a Polish restaurant? Hmm… There are also some adult beverages that fit this time of year perfectly. Mulled wine, hot buttered rum or hot chocolate with a little peppermint schnapps can really hit the spot after coming in from shoveling the driveway. Well, I was hoping that I’d find too many things to fit on one list and that’s exactly what happened. Be on the lookout for Part II of this column in next week’s issue of the Chautauqua Star.

The Weekly Word

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE LOCAL CHURCH

Rev. Timothy Stahlman Family Church Jamestown fcjamestown.org

When the Bible speaks of the Church, it is not

speaking of one particular denomination or group. The Church is neither a building nor a locale that houses worship services. The Bible's definition of the Church is this: The believers of the world that have put their faith and faith alone in Jesus Christ. The Church is called the Body of Christ. (Ephesians 1:2223) The believer is just as much a part of Christ as your arm or your leg is a part of you. Jesus Himself said this about the Church collectively in Matthew 16:18, "... the gates of hell shall not prevail against it (the Church)" During

Jesus' time on Earth, did any demon or agent of Satan ever defeat Him? No. If believers are His body then we should walk in the same victory Jesus walked in! ( John 14:12) Jesus never suffered lack, disease, depression, or defeat. Then neither should we. Why do all these things defeat so many people then? Many people have underestimated the important role the local church plays in their lives. As a pastor I have noticed that Christians start taking vacations from church during the summer. All of a

family church mayville Sunday Services 10:30am & 7pm

2nd and 4th Fridays, 7pm 65 West Lake Road fcmayville.org Building faith through the life-changing Word of God

sudden golf, hobbies, and yard work are more important then getting fed the Word of God. Just a warning to those of you playing hooky today; you are away from your shepherd and sheep can get hurt while apart from their shepherd. Your shepherd is your pastor. Look at what Jesus noticed about people in Matthew 9:36, "But when He saw the multitudes he was moved with compassion on them because THEY FAINTED AND WERE SCATTERED ABROAD AS SHEEP HAVING NO SHEPHERD." The word for shepherd in

the original Greek is the same word for pastor. Look at what happens to people without their pastor; they become faint and get scattered in life. Jesus Christ instituted the office of the pastor to make sure His sheep get fed so they don't faint and get dominated by the world. Where do you find the pastor? In the local church. Today many people consider the Church an option, not vital. If church is only optional for you then you are going to have to know that the other option is to faint and be scattered. When a person decides

not to join themselves to a Bible teaching assembly they are choosing to be faint and scattered abroad. Pastors are given to us from God to keep us safe and protected. Whenever the church doors are open and you have the opportunity to hear from your pastor you need to be there. God delivers your spiritual mail through a pastor and if you are not there to pick it up, it is not God's fault. Sometimes the Lord is trying to say something to you to save you from trouble but it never falls upon our ears because we neglected the local church.

projects begin to take shape. Gilbert attended Wellesley College in Wellesley, Massachusetts, majoring in Peace and Justice Studies. Her professional background includes healthcare administration, grant writing, and community relations. Gilbert most recently worked for a healthcare-related nonprofit focusing on workforce development in Chautauqua County. “I’m very excited to bring my skills, experience, and energy to the City of Jamestown,” said Gilbert. “I love all the natural and professional resources available in the city and I can’t wait to work on projects that highlight all that there is to do here. I am also very thankful that I’ll get to enjoy all four seasons again,” she said. Originally a native of Jamestown, Gilbert worked in Arkansas, Arizona, and Wisconsin over the last 15 years before returning home two years ago with her partner Dr. Carrie Pawelski to pursue newly available job opportunities. Career

advancement and family were the primary drivers to bring her back to her hometown.

Wheat Sandwich Bread

whole wheat flours. Stir to form a shaggy dough. Let this stand for 20 minutes to give the flour time to absorb the liquid. Using the dough hook attachment on a standing mixer, knead the dough for 8-9 minutes. Alternatively, knead the dough by hand against the counter. If the dough is bubble-gum sticky against the sides of the bowl or the counter, add extra flour a tablespoon at a time until it is no longer sticky. The dough is kneaded when it is smooth, feels slightly tacky, forms a ball without sagging, and springs back when poked. Clean out the mixing bowl and film it with a little oil. Form the dough into a ball and turn it in the bowl to coat it with oil. Cover the bowl and let the dough rise in a warm spot until nearly doubled in bulk, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. This dough won't double quite as dramatically as other recipes, but the dough should look visibly puffed.

Sprinkle a little flour on the counter and turn the dough out on top. Divide the dough in two and shape each half into a loose ball. Let the balls rest for 10 minutes. Grease two 8x4-inch (or 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch) loaf pans or film them with non-stick cooking spray. Shape each ball of dough into a loaf and transfer to the loaf pans. Let the loaves rise a second time until they start to dome over the edge of the pan, 30-40 minutes. Heat the oven to 425°F about halfway through the second rise. Turn down the heat to 375°F and bake for 30-35 minutes. Finished loaves will be dark goldenbrown and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom. Remove the loaves from the pans and let them cool completely before slicing. Loaves will keep at room temperature for several days. Loaves can also be wrapped in foil and plastic, and frozen for up to three months.

Mentors help build young people’s character and confidence, expand their universe and help them navigate pathways to successful adulthood.

All across the country, there are doctors, lawyers, research scientists, teachers and a whole lot more who wouldn’t be where they are if not for mentoring programs. That’s why January is recognized as National Mentoring Month. Here in Chautauqua County, there are several organizations that have been making a difference in the community through mentoring for many years. Chautauqua Striders. COMPEER. The Boys and Girls Club. The YMCA. All of these organizations have been instrumental in improving the quality of life for youth around our corner of New York State. “The students that are in our mentoring program are in grades 2-12,” Chautauqua Striders mentoring coordinator Lorraine Walker shared. “They’re students that have been identified as having great potential that might just need a little more support in meeting that potential. Typically these referrals come from their teachers.” The mentors themselves are just caring individuals from the community. The mentors and mentees enter the relationship as strangers, but often form a bond that lasts forever. “I have lots of success stories,” Walker noted. “I have pages upon pages of emails that I’ve

The Chautauqua Striders have success stories abound. Pictured is Morgan, a SUNY Fredonia senior and Striders mentor, who helped Amica win the Striders’ Back to School reading contest. Amica read over 300 minutes in less than one month. (Photo courtesy of Chautauqua Striders)

gotten from students after they’ve graduated saying that if it wasn’t for mentoring, I wouldn’t be where I am now. “We’ve had kids that have moved onto college and became doctors,” she continued. “We’ve had students that have broken the cycle of generational poverty that have gone and learned a trade. We’ve had students that joined the military and then came back to Jamestown to continue their education at ( Jamestown Community College). They still refer to their mentors now. They’ve married and have children and their mentors are like grandparents to those kids.” It might seem cliché, but the mentors really can get as much out of the relationship as the mentees do. “They really do,” Walker was quick to agree. “Our motto, if you will,

is ‘Mentor one child, change two lives.’ Being a mentor changes a person for the better.” The application process to become a mentor, as least at Chautauqua Striders, is easy, but it also contains background checks and requires personal references to ensure the safety of the children. Once approved, mentors have several options on how to be involved. “We have several different types of mentoring, but look for a commitment of four hours a month,” Walker explained. “They meet outside of the school on the evenings and weekends. We have school mentoring when they come to the school and meet face-to-face during a lunch period or a study hall. We ask for a yearlong commitment but we’re so fortunate to have the wonderful mentors CONTINUED ON PAGE 13

For those still looking for their 2017 resolution, consider becoming a mentor. “I believe so much in this mentoring program,” Walker pitched. “I see every day the impact we have on these kids. I guess I just hope that my compassion for my kids and my passion for this program comes through. You’re going to be adding someone to your life that is going to change your life for the better. Most importantly, you’re going to have such an impact on this person. You’re going to be blown away. You don’t even recognize that you have all of these fantastic qualities and experiences to guide these people to a successful future. They are so open to having a positive adult in their life.

Long Named Senior Volunteer of the Year Contributed Article Chautauqua County Office for the Aging

Each May, as part of national Older Americans Month, NYSOFA celebrates older New Yorkers at a Senior Day event in Albany. Many older New Yorkers, chosen by their county Offices for the Aging, are honored and recognized for their outstanding contributions at the annual event. Here in Chautauqua County, our shining star was Louise Long.   Dr. Spanos, the Chautauqua County OFA director wrote about this prestigious award and our awardee in her monthly article in May of this year. Louise and her lovely family were able to make the trip to Albany to receive the award. The governor, the New York state office for the aging director, the chair of the state senate aging committee and the New York state assembly all gave words of thanks and gratitude on that special day. Here is the text from the publication compiled for the entire state: "Louise Long has had a tremendous impact on her community and the country through her volunteer work with Jamestown General Hospital transporting patients, as well as the American Red Cross. She has been a volunteer with the American Red Cross since 1986, where her gentle manner and empathy

have soothed those who were dealing with the loss of loved ones, home, and property during times of disaster. Most recently, she has been a welcoming face for those donating blood. Louise and her husband participate in local parades by driving the Red Cross van. She instills community service and volunteerism in her young grandchildren as they walk alongside her in parades handing out candy. In the past she was a disaster action team member, providing emergency assistance to countless victims displaced by house fires and has deployed nationally to assist during major disasters. Louise has mentored young women and still hears from some who were part of the Junior Miss program. Louise is the type of volunteer every organization would like to have, with a sunny nature and willingness to tackle any job put before her. Louise Long has lived in Chautauqua County her entire life. She was born in her grandmother's house, in Kennedy, and met her husband at Midway State Park skating rink. After marrying, they settled in Panama, where they raised two daughters. Despite juggling work, a family business, and raising children, Louise always found time to give back to the community through volunteering. She officially retired from paid work four years ago, but continues to be an active volunteer for the Red Cross and the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program. She speaks

proudly about her children and seven grandchildren and has been a great influence on them. Louise advises others to "Just do it! It will make you feel so good. And take all volunteer opportunities that come along; don't lock yourself into doing just one thing with one organization (NYS OFA, 2016)."

Top Tips for Understanding and Paying Back Your Student Loans Contributed Article StatePoint

With an estimated $1.3 trillion in student loans outstanding, it’s safe to say student loan debt is a reality for millions of Americans. While this figure may sound daunting, experts say that greater financial literacy can help students and graduates better understand their loans and pay them back. “The reality is, people out there are hungry for information. They want to understand the facts when it comes to paying back student loans and the best way to do it,” says the educator turned hip hop artist Dee-1, who celebrated paying off his student loans by writing the song “Sallie Mae Back.” To help students get on the right track, Dee-1 has teamed up with Sallie Mae to educate students on financing college, paying back loans, and managing finances. They are offering the following tips from the top of Dee-1’s paying back student loans playlist: • • Know who you owe and how much. Understand if your loan is from the federal government—about 93 percent of all loans are— or a private lender like Sallie Mae. If you are unsure, call your lender or check your credit report. Be • responsible. Know your monthly payment amounts and due dates.

Separate wants from needs. Managing your money means managing your lifestyle. Prioritize payments you must make every month, and make sure your student loan is one of them. Exceed your own expectations. Pay more than the minimum amount due

Safe Winter Driving Tips Contributed Article StatePoint

While winter can be a beautiful time of year, it can also be a treacherous season on the roads. Winter driving conditions require increased attention and an ability to adapt quickly. In 2015, 8,010 people nationwide were killed in car crashes between December and March, resulting in an average seven percent per month increase from 2014, according to the National Safety Council (NSC). These numbers are a warning to everyone on the roads about how dangerous winter driving can be. “Winter looks more idyllic outside our house windows than outside our windshield,” said Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of the National Safety Council. “The good news is many cars are equipped with life-saving technologies. It is important that drivers understand how the technologies work in order to drive safely in winter conditions.” In an effort to prevent crashes on the road this winter, MyCarDoesWhat, an NSC and University of Iowa initiative, is offering some major pieces of advice for driving in winter conditions. • Slow down. Drivers frequently underestimate how long it takes to brake and how difficult it can be to steer on slippery roads. • Don’t use cruise control on slippery surfaces like ice and snow. It will diminish your control and reduce your reaction time in the event of a skid. • Remember, bridges and overpasses freeze before roadways, so be alert in cold weather when approaching one. • Many new safety technologies (like back-up cameras) have outside sensors that can freeze or fog up. Always make sure they are clear so they work their best. MyCarDoesWhat also reminds drivers of the safety technologies that can help vehicles adapt in slippery and changing conditions.

• •

Anti-lock braking systems (ABS) help drivers maintain control by preventing wheels from locking up. ABS works differently than traditional brakes, delivering and releasing precise braking pressure to each wheel as needed. So, don’t pump the brakes if you have ABS. Just hold them down firmly and look and steer in the direction you want to go. The brakes may buzz and vibrate when the ABS has activated. Traction control helps you accelerate without spinning out on slippery surfaces like snow and ice. Electronic stability control senses when you may be losing control around a corner or curve, and can stabilize your car if it begins to veer off the road. Adaptive headlights adjust to changing roadway

conditions -- such as curves -- to provide optimum illumination along the roadway during long winter nights and periods of low daytime visibility. • The temperature warning feature provides updates about upcoming roadway conditions such as black ice. “When there is snow and ice on the road, antilock brakes can improve the stability of your braking so you can steer better,” said Dan McGehee, director of the University of Iowa National Advanced Driver Simulator. “Remember to hold the brakes down even when they pulse and vibrate.” For more information, visit MyCarDoesWhat.org and follow MyCarDoesWhat on Twitter and Facebook. Stay safe this winter. Learn how your car works and drive slowly in dangerous conditions.

TOP TIPS FOR UNDERSTANDING AND PAYING BACK YOUR STUDENT LOANS, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 each month. If you get a raise or tax refund, use part or all of it to increase your monthly loan payment. The faster you pay off your loan, the less you’ll spend in the long run. • Confront reality. If you run into trouble, don’t hide from it, don’t be embarrassed by it, and don’t give up. Stay positive, focused, and look for solutions. Call your lender or touch base with your cosigner, if you have one. • Get excited about your future! Be passionate about managing your money wisely and effectively. You can’t make your student loans disappear magically overnight, but you can make a plan for paying them back. “The exhilaration Dee-1 expresses in paying off his student loans is contagious,” says Martha Holler, senior vice president, Sallie Mae. “We hope his excitement and his direct, doable tips help newly minted graduates get into the rhythm of repayment.”

For more information, visit SallieMae.com, a one-stop resource that includes monthly budget worksheets, loan repayment calculators, and information about payment options -- including the company’s Graduated Repayment Period, which allows graduates in good standing to make 12 months of interest-only payments before transitioning into full principal and interest payments. New tech tools also are making managing loans easier than ever. For example, Sallie Mae recently unveiled a new mobile app — available for Apple and Android — to help customers manage their accounts, access loan information, and make payments from smartphones. Don’t let the prospect of paying back student loans overwhelm you. Financial literacy is a game changer and can position you to move up in the workforce on good financial footing.

Cinema Series Continues with “Loving” on Saturday and Tuesday Contributed Article Fredonia Opera House

The next feature film in the Opera House Cinema Series is “Loving,” the true story of the couple behind the landmark civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia. It will be screened on Sat., Jan. 14, and Tues., Jan. 17, at 7:30 p.m. The film is the subject of considerable Oscar buzz as a Best Picture contender as well as Best Actress honors for its star, Ruth Negga. “Loving” celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving ( Joel Edgerton and Negga), who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown. Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry. Their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since. Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving ( Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown. Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry – and their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since.CalcCalvin Wilson, in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, calls the film “a beautiful film about daring to love, without fear or compromise.” Ann Hornaday, in the Washington Post, calls it “intimate, moving and superbly underplayed, every bit as soft-spoken and subtly implacable as its protagonists.” Barbara Scharres, on RogerEbert.com, calls it “a well-crafted historical drama that pays minute attention to recreating the period and the couple’s personal history, with much dialogue and legal par-

ticulars based on documented fact.” Katie Walsh, in the Tribune News Service, says “for all of its subtlety and restraint, ‘Loving’ washes over you, seeps into your blood stream and remains there long after the film is over.” Rated PG-13 for thematic elements, “Loving” runs two hours, three minutes. The Opera House Cinema Series is sponsored by Lake Shore Savings Bank. Tickets are available at the door for $7 (adults), $6.50 (seniors & Opera House members) and $5 (students) the night of each screening. A book of 10 movie passes CONTINUED ON PAGE 21

Buffalo had Advantage (for who has it worse): BROWNS. a run of six straight last-place finishes in the AFC East in there and has only finished as high as second PLAYOFFS place three times in the 18 years (no division titles, Well, this will be a short list. The Bills haven’t made obviously). The total record during that stretch is the playoffs since their Wild Card loss to the Tennes123-165 for a meager winning percentage of .427. see Titans. Surely you remember the heart-breaking The Browns have had just two winning seasons over (and pretty clearly illegal) Music City Miracle. The Browns also have just one playoff game during the the past 18 years. They had one random 10-win season back in 2007 (I bet you didn’t remember that), stretch and it was also a nail-biter. The hated Steelbut have finished in last place in the AFC North in 12 ers knocked off the Browns 36-33 in the Wild Card of the last 14 seasons – including a current six-season game following the 2002 season. The Bills have gone longer without a playoff game and their loss in 1999 streak. That’s abysmal. But if you think that’s bad, shield your eyes because the expansion Browns have was bogus, so… a cumulative record of 88-200 for a .305 winning Advantage (for who has it worse): BILLS. percentage. Momma pajama! COACHES Advantage (for who has it worse): BROWNS. Compiling these lists was actually a little surprising. There weren’t as many names as I expected. Don’t get me wrong, having eight or nine coaches over the span of 18 years is embarrassing, but it seems like there would have been more considering the “success” of each franchise. Bills: Wade Phillips, Gregg Williams, Mike Mularkey, Dick Jauron, Perry Fewell, Chan Gailey, Doug Marrone, Rex Ryan and 2017 coach. Browns: Chris Palmer, Butch Davis, Terry Robiskie, Romeo Crennel, Eric Mangini, Pat Shurmur, Rob Chudzinski, Mike Pettine and Hue Jackson. This is an interesting mix of big names and nobodBy Stefan Gestwicki

ies. Dick Jauron had won a Coach of the Year award with the Bears before coming to Buffalo. Crennel was ripe off the Bill Belichick coaching tree. Mangini was another Belichick disciple and was considered quite a “get” for the Browns. Needless to say, he flamed out. Marrone walked out of an NFL coaching gig. Chudzinski wasn’t even given a second year. Mike Pettine was Buffalo’s defensive coordinator before leaving to take over the Browns. He lasted just two seasons. Rex Ryan was billed as Buffalo’s savior but clashed with ownership (or something) and is also out after two seasons. Jackson might be the guy to turn Cleveland around, but it’s too early to tell. Advantage (for who has it worse): PUSH. STAR POWER The NFL is powered by stars. Cam Newton. Aaron Rodgers. J.J. Watt. Odell Beckham. Ezekiel Elliot. These are the faces of the NFL. You might also notice that none of them wear Browns or Bills jerseys. That’s not to say that over the past 18 years the downtrodden franchises haven’t had some star power. Let’s dig through the archives. Bills: Doug Flutie was something of a star. Eric Moulds was a three-time All-Pro receiver. Aaron Schobel made a couple Pro Bowls. Nate Clements and Antoine Winfield became bigger names after playing in Buffalo. They signed Terrell Owens for that one year. Marshawn Lynch and Paul Posluszny came from the same 2007 draft. Jairus Byrd made a brief splash in the NFL. Marcell Dareus has a reputation for being good (even if it might not be true on the field). Signing Mario Williams was a huge deal, which worked for a couple years before blowing up. CONTINUED ON PAGE 25


SPORTS 25 GREATER OLEAN

CHAUTAUQUA STAR FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2017

PANAMA LEGEND PALMER TO JOIN CSHOF, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 23 stepped down in 2012. In those 35 years, she compiled a 388-248 record (a .610 winning percentage), and won 13 Division III championships, two Section VI Class D titles and one Class D regional crown in 1988. Palmer’s 1988 team defeated Houghton Academy in that regional match, a grueling, five-setter that lasted 2.5 hours. Unfortunately, that was as far as the Lady Panthers could go, because there was not a state tournament in those days. By Saturday morning, though, the Lady Panthers will be blazing another athletic trail, continuing a remarkable run of success that has included back-to-back trips to the NYSPHSAA Class D basketball final four in 2015 and 2016. “It’s been a really good situation,” Palmer said. “… Tammy coached jayvee with me for several years. She’s old-school like I am. I always felt fundamentals are the key. If you do the simple things well, you’re going to be successful. “It’s fun to see a really solid team play the game well,” she continued. “Panama is not fancy, but they play the game well. For me, it’s just a continuation of the program. It’s nice to see that it remains strong. … For them to go to the states is just awesome.” So when the Panama girls take the court at the Glens Falls Civic Center for their first match on Saturday morning, Palmer will be in the stands rooting for a program that has been part of her DNA for more than half her life. “I’m really excited for this team,” she said. “They’re a really well-balanced team, and I think when you look at them, they do the key things. They cover the court well, handle the first pass and they serve well. If you can handle the serve and control the first pass, you have a chance to run your offense, and these kids do a nice job of that. “This is a good, quality group of kids. There are several of them who play travel, they’ve got the volleyball bug. With a couple of them, volleyball is their first love. … I’m really hoping they can pull it off.” Hosier noted that she had Palmer speak to the team prior to the sectional finals and ”you could just see them, just the focus and the attention on her. They were soaking in every word.”

WHO HAS HAD IT WORSE?, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 24 LeSean McCoy remains of the league’s top running backs. Aaron Maybin was a….just kidding…that guy was rubbish. Browns: I looked. Honest, I looked. Josh Cribbs was a fun return man to watch. Phil Dawson was a reliable kicker for many years. Does that make him a star? Joe Thomas is a future Hall of Fame player at left tackle. Joe Haden was legitimately one of the league’s best corners for several years, too. Peyton Hillis made the cover of Madden NFL 12. Josh Gordon had the makings of a star before off-the-field trouble did him in. Terrelle Pryor is…something. He’s pretty good and makes the news a lot, so I guess he’s a star. Advantage (for who has it worse): BROWNS.

After that breakdown, it’s pretty clear that the Browns have had things worse. The one argument that Bills fans could make (if they want this title, for some reason) is that they get their hopes crushed more often. I’m not sure Browns fans go into the season expecting anything but last place anymore. Bills fans, on the other hand, have Super Bowl aspirations right up until the opening kickoff. Spoiler alert: those are quickly dashed. It’s going to be fun when one of these franchises finally turns things around. Who do you think it’ll be? That could be a commentary for another day.

28 AUTO TIPS AND TRICKS

Autotrader Names Must-Have Automotive Technology for 2017 Contributed Article Autotrader.com

The rate of acceleration is growing when it comes to all things technology, and the world of cars is no different. Words like "self-driving" and "autonomous," once a seemingly futuristic fantasy, are now part of the vernacular, becoming much closer to reality. There are several self-driving car features that already are available on new cars today, including things like adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, automatic parking and more. With new automotive technology constantly emerging and 2017 model-year vehicles now flooding dealer lots, the editors at Autotrader recently named their Must-Have Automotive Technology for 2017. "What once seemed like something only for 'The Jetsons' is quickly becoming everyday reality in the automotive landscape," said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. "And it's not just vehicles with a high price-point; now many mainstream family cars are equipped with technology features only seen on top-of-the-line luxury vehicles just a few short years ago." Car shoppers should embrace all of the conveniences and safety features offered by new-car technology, but they also need to educate themselves so they fully understand what these features can – and just as importantly, what they cannot – do. Advanced Self-Driving Capabilities Automakers like Mercedes-Benz, Tesla and Volvo are rolling out self-driving systems that can put many autonomous features together in one advanced package, appealing to even the most die-hard auto enthusiasts especially when it comes to the more boring parts of driving like commutes or long highway trips. While Tesla's Autopilot may currently be among the most advanced (and better-known) of these systems, several other automakers offer an impressive look at the future, including Volvo's Pilot Assist system. Adaptive Suspension Formerly only seen on ultra-high-end sports cars, now adaptive suspension is making its way into other models, allowing you to custom tailor your car's suspension based on the experience you want to have, with modes like "comfort" and "sport." For drivers who often find themselves critiquing a car's ride, or for those who spend a lot of time on rough roads or driving tight corners, the ability to change your driving experience with the push of a button can be well worth the cost.

Autonomous Safety Features Many new vehicles now offer a suite of autonomous safety tech, including lane keep assist, automatic forward collision braking and adaptive cruise control - and the great news is that these systems are getting more affordable and no longer only reserved for pricey luxury cars. Affordable new compact models like Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra and Mazda Mazda3 all feature impressive autonomous safety tech features. Car Care Apps Say goodbye to the little sticker on the corner of your windshield that reminds you of your next oil change; now many cars deliver this information and more in a handy app, making it easier to keep track of everything. Some automakers like Hyundai even have the Hyundai Assurance Car Care App, which not only tells you when your vehicle needs its next service, but it can even schedule it for you.  Gesture Control Gesture control is the wave of the automotive future. It allows you to control various features of your vehicle using gestures instead of pressing a button, touching a screen or using voice commands. Currently BMW is the only automaker to offer this feature (and only on its high-end 7 Series), but expect this to reach more vehicles in the coming years.  Larger Screens, More Screens Huge screens seem to be replacing many gauges and buttons in the cockpit of new cars, operating similar to a smartphone with ultra-sensitive touch and the ability for details to be reconfigured. While some may worry about the future reliability of such screens in lieu of simple buttons, experts praise the more clean presentation and easier-to-use infotainment systems versus former complex controls or tiny buttons.   Electric Drivetrain Electric drivetrain technology is now becoming more widespread and delivers not only the obvious fuel-economy benefit, but also performance benefits. Modern exotic sports cars like the Acura NSX, BMW i8, Porsche 918 Spyder and LaFerrari all feature electric drivetrains. For everyday drivers, features ranging from fully electric to plug-in gas/ electric hybrids mean several options for the driving masses.
