Brenda Hayes, Ph.D. interviewed families that relocated to the county.

trepreneurialism or the ability to work from home; the county’s agricultural base and cultural and educational opportunities. Hayes, who herself returned to the area after living in Philadelphia and other parts of the country for almost 40 years, says she told herself she would return after her oldest child graduated from college. “The more I was here the more I began to appreciate all that this area has to offer,” she said. Running a family grape farm with her mother, as well as continuing her professional life, Hayes said she would often encounter others like herself who had relocated to the county. She was curious what brought them here and decided to investigate. After teaming up with Bryant, the pair conducted 32 interviews, which Hayes says represented 70 people when spouses and children are counted. There were a few surprises, she states. First, those who relocated to the county in the last ten years were not all former residents. “Only 56 percent lived here previously. Forty percent were single people of

all ages; 28 percent had children under 18. Hayes states, “I imagined everyone would be retired like me and this was not the case.” She explains that those surveyed were not part of a random group of newcomers to the area, but were people “interested in sharing their enthusiasm for their new home.” She admits that the methods used were not scientific. After gathering and analyzing the information, Hayes says, “we wanted to find some way to utilize the information to attract people…to look at Chautauqua County and consider it a viable place to live, but adds “neither one of us were marketers… we each have jobs totally unrelated to this.” She envisioned writing a book or pamphlet featuring some of the families, but the time commitment prohibited both she and Bryant from finishing the project. “We figured we would somehow make it useful down the line- if anyone would be willing to do the continued on Pg. 2

referenced clear warnings that the racetrack “owners and operators are not responsible for accidents to riders or spectators.” The racetrack featured bleacherstyle seating for spectators and standing-room-only sections along part of the track for brave onlookers, with a modest concession stand offering a pretty limited menu to hungry and/or thirsty racing fans. Satan’s Bowl of Death was ovalshaped, with a dirt surface that was actually more like an obstacle course, especially when compared to the smooth surfaces used for speed at other racetracks. The front straightaway portion of the racetrack took all of the racers into a rather large hole of water and mud and up to the creek bed which led up to a steep hill. At the top of that hill was the second turn which took the races in between some large trees as they traveled along the back straightaway of the track before reaching

the third turn. In order to travel to the fourth and final turn, drivers had to go down and eventually traverse through the wet and muddy mess at the end of the front straightaway. According to historians when World War II began, the racing ceased at Satan’s Bowl of Death for a variety of reasons, particularly the country’s demand that all gasoline and tire be rationed. Most other tracks across the country were also shut down, with many of the racecar drivers being pulled away from their hobby because they were needed to serve overseas. While it is believed that races eventually resumed at Satan’s Bowl of Death following the conclusion of the war, there is very little documented about events held at the racetrack during that time period, leading some to believe that the track never officially re-opened

shopping the Perimeter By Patricia Pihl Managing Editor

While I am no health expert, wellness has always been a second hobby in my life. I don’t feel well when I’m not exercising or eating fresh, wholesome foods. However, I’m not a vegetarian and have become resistant to each passing dietary fad. One thing I will espouse however is a lifestyle of “clean eating.” It has no measuring, secret formulas or other nonsense. It is simply eating whole, fresh and unprocessed foods. What a simple and refreshing concept! Have you heard of “shopping the perimeter of a grocery store” to achieve your health or weight loss goals? When you walk in you usually see vegetables first. As you continue your circle you will see meats or fish, then dairy. We may come to the bread aisle as well, and there are options for healthy whole grains there as well. So the goal is to fi ll your cart with three quarters foods around the “perimeter,” or the outside part of the store, and then we don’t have as much room in the cart to go up and down the aisles continued on Pg 2

after World War II ended in 1945. The property today is a mostly wooded area featuring a private farm. “From what I can tell I don’t think anything else happened there after the war ended,” says Karen Livsey, an archivist at Jamestown’s Fenton History Center. According to advertisements published in local newspapers in the 1940s, other events took place at Satan’s Bowl of Death besides racing. Parachute jumps out of airplanes and hot air balloon demonstrations were among the activities that

existing in harmony.” Beauty of Natural Resources/Outdoor Activities “Seventy five percent of the respondents cited the lakes and streams as a critical and appreciated aspect of the area’s beauty and charm, saying they participate in kayaking, boating, canoeing sailing and fishing.” The beauty of the green rolling hills and woods was a popular draw for half the respondents, as well as the four seasons. One person said “we came here for the weather; we wanted the seasons.” Another said, “its so green here.” Affordability/Cost of Living Over 78 percent of the interviewees reported that the low cost of real estate and the availability of land and older homes with architectural interest contributed significantly to the ability to relocate. Some commented that less expensive housing helped to offset lower incomes. Agricultural Base Chautauqua County has a strong agricultural history,

which serves as an attraction for many of our new and returning residents. “The emphasis on sustainable, locally grown food is another important feature among this new population,” Hayes says. The abundance of vineyards and wineries, organic farming, locally grown food, farmer’s markets and cooperative farms, were among the attractive elements listed. Cultural and Educational Opportunities Almost all participants shared their favorite cultural and educational venues, outlining access to local arts, music and life long learning, all at a reasonable cost, and in some cases, free. Along with musical and theatrical venues at Fredonia State, also mentioned were Chautauqua Institution, The Reg Lenna Civic Center, the Arts Council and Arts Trail, Jamestown Savings Bank Ice Arena, and Roger Tory Peterson Institute as well as the three area colleges ( JCC, SUNY Fredonia and JBC).

The objective is not to eliminate the role of Western of allopathic medicine, but to use both modalities- holistic and naturopathic- for the best outcomes.

Connection with Family Friends and Community Hayes said that everyone listed a connection with family, friends and community as part of what drew them back here or what they were thrilled about once here. “That theme played over and over again,” Hayes said. “One person said, ‘This is the most substantial feeling of community I have ever experienced in all the five states I have lived. It is a great place to raise my daughter.’” Concerning opportunities for community involvement, another was quoted as saying, “You can do so much here. I wanted to

have an art exhibit. I went to the arts council. They said, when would you like to have it? In New York City, I would have been in line behind 300 other people.’” Lifestyle/Small Town and Rural Ambience Hayes says that seventy five percent of respondents remarked (with no prompting) that “friendly locals” were another factor in people’s decision to move here or a delightful surprise after relocation. Under the lifestyle category, people also mentioned the ease and pace of daily activity and lack of traffic and crime as adding to the attractiveness of the area. Values that focused less on consumerism and more on relationships were still another factor. That being said, about a third referenced proximity to Cleveland, Buffalo, Toronto, Pittsburgh and Erie as an additional benefit, as well as what they described as a tolerance of different lifestyles. “Several people referenced the Amish, the Lily Dale spiritualist community and the home schooling community as examples of different lifestyles

Pets of the Week

This week we are featuring “Gulliver” and “Hot Cocoa.” Gulliver is a ten-month-old kitty that is a little bit shy. He would do best in a calm, quiet home. Once he is settled in, he loves to play and he really likes having other kitty friends. Gulliver has been at CCHS since July of 2012. Hot Cocoa is a sweet, chocolate colored pit bull mix. She is about two-years-old. She likes other dogs and going for walks but really loves curling up in her doggy bed. Cocoa is a quiet girl that has a very laid back personality. Both of these great pets are looking for their Valentine to be their “furever” true love. Stop by the Strunk Road Adoption Center and meet these two, or any of their friends, to fi nd the sweetest best friend you can get.

Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation (NCCF) is once again preparing for its yearly grant programs. The question often raised during this time of year is “where does the money for grants come from?” The best explanation starts with the NCCF mission “to enhance the area in which we live and work,” which is achieved in two distinctly different ways. The first is to assist donors in fulfi lling their philanthropic goals. The second is to assist local nonprofits achieve their goals by providing financial assistance through grant dollars. The two merge together to achieve the mission as donor dollars provide the money to support nonprofit grants. The NCCF currently operates three separate grant programs. The Northern Chautauqua Environmental Grants Program is designed to increase public knowledge of environmental issues in Chautauqua County, particularly those relating to Lake Erie and its watershed. A broad range of educational activities have been funded including educational events, handson educational experiences, creek water studies, equipment, and stipends for internships and lectures. The Community Pride Program is a biennial grants program that promotes citizen participation and pride within our communities. Examples of Community Pride projects have included beautification projects, tree plantings, signage, community gardens, and community events. Grant requests considered range from $100 to $1,500 with a 1:1 match in dollars, volunteer hours, and/or supplies. The Community Grants Program, which occurs in the spring and fall of each year, is the NCCF’s largest

discretionary grants program. This program is one of the direct ways that the NCCF works to improve the community. Community grant awards to nonprofit organizations benefit the areas of arts and culture, economic development, education, the environment, health, human services and more. “Our grants programs are made possible through the generosity of community members who have made gifts to unrestricted endowments within the NCCF. Thanks to the support of our donors we are able to generate the greatest community impact,” said Eileen Dunn, NCCF Program Coordinator. A fall 2012 grant to the Chautauqua Striders is a shining example of the impact the NCCF’s Community Grants Program has in northern Chautauqua County. At one time, the Striders’ tutoring program in Dunkirk ran four days a week; however, budget cuts throughout the years have reduced tutoring to two days a week. This $4,000 grant, along with funding from the United Way, has allowed the Striders’ program to reinstate a third day of tutoring, hire an additional tutor, and offer academic enrichment activities that support and reinforce the NYS Common Core Learning Standards. “Chautauqua Striders thanks NCCF for its support as we strive for a broader reach in northern Chautauqua County. As a hidden jewel in this area, we want more families to take advantage of the programs we offer for youth ages 6 to 24,” said Michele Starwalt, the North County Academic Coordinator for Chautauqua Striders. The Community Grants Program and the Community Pride Program’s letter of interest deadline is March 1, at 4 p.m. To learn more about NCCF Grant making programs contact Eileen Dunn at 3664892 or visit the web site at The NCCF was incorporated in 1986 as a tax-exempt charitable organization. Since its establishment, the NCCF has distributed more than $8.8 million in the community through its various grant programs. It is an organization inherently committed to enriching the northern Chautauqua community and encouraging local philanthropy.

The weather outside was cold, but the response to the Chautauqua County 4-H “Have a Heart for 4-H” fundraiser event on Sunday, Feb. 17, proved to be a very warm response from over one thousand supporters of 4-H. The event featured a spaghetti and meatballs and then pork dinner, over 150 basket raffles, silent auctions and other raffles that were a perfect fit for a 4-H event. One special raffle included two piglets and an upcoming raffle for a horse. The whole event proved to be a success financially for the funding for county 4-H projects for the coming year.

infinity Visual and Performing arts brings acclaimed guitarist to Jamestown Contributed Article Infinity Performing Arts

Richard Gilewitz, who’s been called one of the most unique and humorous performers in the contemporary acoustic scene, will be coming to Jamestown for two days. Infinity Visual and Performing Arts has scheduled two workshops with Gilewitz Thursday, Feb. 28 and Friday, March 1 from 4 to 5 p.m. on both days. The lecture-style workshops are designed for all levels of player and explore a variety of elements, including Richard’s unique right-hand position, which is a compilation of the classical-style guitar teachings, and syncopated/percussive influences. Not only will Gilewitz be in town for the workshops, but he’ll also provide an Infinity Café performance on Friday March 1, from 7 to 9 p.m. Infinity students are welcome to attend each of the workshops for free. There will be a $5 fee

Acclaimed guitarist Richard Gilewitz of Tampa, Fla. will bring his musical skills and humor to Jamestown Thursday, February 28 and Friday March 1. (Submitted Photo)

for non-Infinity members that attend each workshop. The concert at the Infinity Café on Friday night is a free event and is open to the public. Gilewitz regularly fascinates his audiences with finger-style gymnastics while spinning yarns too unbelievable not to be true. His rousing performances are fi lled with amazing chops, humor, and a history of the acoustic guitar from blues to folk, traditional to classical and somewhere in between. His use of banjo style picking patterns, classical arpeggios, tapping and harmonics, as well as a rhythmic and percussive approach, bring a fresh impression to the listener. Richard is respected worldwide for his command of the 6 and 12-string guitar. Whether playing solo, conducting guitar seminars and school programs, or sharing the stage with fellow performers, Richard Gilewitz always creates a sparkle of mood mastery and wonderment.

Lutheran to Unveil a New Modern SOUPer Bowl Sunday II A Success Elegant Edibles Chicken Wing Soup Named Favorite Soup Rehab Unit This Spring Contributed Article Lutheran

Once again, the sound of progress can be heard in the halls of the Lutheran Home and Rehabilitation Center as construction crews demo old rooms that were built in the 1970s to make way for a new and modern rehabilitation unit. “We’re excited to create a new space for our subacute rehab program and we appreciate everyone’s patience during this phase of construction,” said Tom Holt, president and CEO. “We’ve learned a lot in the seven years since we began short term rehab. We’re taking the great ideas we’ve received from staff and residents and adding them to what works well today.” The unit will be opened in early spring. The new location will be more convenient for residents going back and forth to therapy. The unit will have all single rooms with modern furnishings and a private shower and bath. A new dining area will be designed specifically for the short term rehab resident. “I’ve had a wonderful experience here,” said Tina Lind-Kellom, a current rehab resident recovering from a bilateral knee replacement. “The admission process was seamless from the moment I was greeted by the nurse and physical therapist at the front door. The physical therapy staff

makes me feel like I am the only person in their care, and I’ve made amazing progress. Staff is just as warm and friendly to my family. Having a brand new space for future residents will add to an already positive experience. I’ve also enjoyed filling my free time with the activities they provide and I especially like the church service on Sundays.” The Lutheran Home and Rehabilitation Center has downsized from a 254 bed facility to a 148 bed facility. “Our vision is to be the go-to resource for senior services by providing a wide range of services that will help people remain independent,” Holt said. In the last few years, Lutheran expanded assisted living, added a medical model day care program and the new 14-unit Smartment ® Building. “We’re serving more people but

in ways that enhance their quality of life,” Holt said. “There will always be a need for the nursing home, but we believe nursing home stays will be shorter as seniors have other options available to them.” The renovation is funded in part by HEAL NY, which awarded over $23 million to Lutheran. HEAL NY is the Health Care Efficiency and Affordability Law of New York State. The intent of the funds is to: right-size the health care delivery system; eliminate duplication of health care services; promote alternative care at appropriate levels and cost; and reduce the rising costs of health care spending.

care problems they may be experiencing. “Sometimes, we offer suggestions, but we always want to get the doctor involved, says Rovegno,” which is especially true when a person has a major health concern. Occasionally, he also asks patients to request their physician’s permission to send their blood work. Education is the key. “People are looking for different ways to care for their health…and want a source of information. When they do it on their own it is dangerous. We never tell people to stop taking their medicine.” Rovegno offers time-honored traditions, like getting to know the customer, listening to their concerns and sharing advice. An important piece of the health care picture more common in a bygone era. “We are not a high-volume pharmacy. That’s the challenge and probably why you don’t see a lot of independent pharmacies anymore. Insurance is pushing people to go the way of mail order and big box stores.”

Lakewood Apothecary and Natural Health Center is located at 130 Chautauqua Ave. in Lakewood.

What’s been lost Rovegno says, are pharmacists who “knew who you were when you walked in the door- and conversed with their customers about their health, taking the time to answer their questions. “We are trying to bring that back to some extent here and people appreciate it,” he adds. The blend of a traditional pharmacy with the best of alternative care is the niche that Lakewood Apothecary fills and one that’s unique to the area. Much of what Rovegno has learned about homeopathy, herbals and nutrition is self-taught, having researched alternative medicine for many years. He has also completed course work at the Australasian College of Health Science. His decision to offer the brands he does is determined by only choosing the companies that he has personally researched. One

such label, Medigenics, is generally offered only through physician’s offices. The store also offers organic skin care products such as Organix South for those who prefer items without chemicals. Because the industry of alternative care is not well regulated, Rovegno says there is a lot of what he calls “ junk” in the marketplace. “In a sense, we are becoming a guardian of people, ensuring they are making the right choices.” He adds, “when I make a recommendation, it is something I feel confident that we are going to get the outcome we are looking for.” When asked about any health advice he wishes to share, Rovegno says, “take control of your own health.” Most people, he says, “turn their bodies over to the medical community.” In addition, he advises, “spend some time

to protect your health- have a protocol- and adjust your lifestyle- which he admits it the most difficult aspect to change. Some people come in who are merely seeking ways to preserve their health, or just live healthier. “We can put a basic protocol in place – with vitamins, and ask individuals to follow it for 3-6 months, then you be the judge.” Opening in 2006, Lakewood Apothecary has established customers, as well as those who have been referred by happy patrons as well as doctors. “It’s something we wish to foster,” Rovengo says.

RELIGION SECTION Keeping the Faith

Rev. Michael Lokietek Family Church Fredonia

Dear Pastor, does God have a plan for my life? If so, how can I find it out? (con’t) Dear Keeping the Faith reader, we saw in last week’s column that the primary way God speaks to us is by speaking to our heart. This may also be referred to as “an inward witness in our heart (Romans 8:16).” This witness is the voice of our conscience. The same conscience that “corrects us will direct us” if we are sensitive to it and “tune in” to the voice of God. This can be more likely to happen when we “tune in” to God through prayer, worship, and waiting in His presence.

While God primarily speaks through His Word and to your heart, there are other ways God can speak to us and if God chooses to speak to us in a supernatural way, we should be open to it. We even read in the Bible where God spoke to someone through a donkey (Numbers 22:28-31)! In Acts we read about many ways God directed His people. Some received guidance from angels (Acts 4:19,20; 8:26), dreams and visions (Acts 10:3, 16:9), and even through an audible voice (Acts 9:3-6; 13:2). We also read in the New Testament that the Apostles didn’t rely on circumstances or

“omens” to determine the will of God. Unfortunately, many present-day Christians mistakenly rely on circumstances as “signs” from God concerning a specific decision for their lives. This is superstition and can lead to misdirection or incorrectly attributing wrong outcomes to God. It’s better that we seek our direction directly from God than from something that could be coincidental or manipulated by someone or even Satan himself. Finally, it is important to remember that God will never tell you something that contradicts the Bible (1 John 5:7). God couldn’t

be God if He contradicted His own Word. It’s also important, therefore, that we must be willing to compare any perceived direction to His written Word as well as allow other spiritually mature Christians to examine the direction that we believe we received and confirm that it is from God (1 John 4:1). These actions should keep us from being deceived by Satan or more commonly… by our own thinking and desires. Remember, as you seek His presence through prayer and study of His Word, you’ll come to discover the unique plan that God has for you ( Jeremiah 29:11)!

The Weekly Word

Rev. Tim Stahlman Family Church Jamestown

Don’t Give Up on Your Loved Ones It’s easy to feel discouraged as a believer when you see people you love and care about living apart from the Lord. As I pray over prayer requests from people in our church, I notice that more than half deal with concerns about the salvation of loved ones. The greatest act of love we can bestow upon others is to take genuine interest in their eternal destiny. The truth is this: There is a Heaven to gain and a Hell to shun. There are some things I want to encourage you with as you pray for your loved ones to accept Christ. First, know that God wants them to be saved more than you do. 2 Peter 3:9 says, “The Lord… (is) not willing that ANY SHOULD PERISH, but

that ALL WOULD COME TO REPENTANCE.” Knowing that you are praying God’s perfect will empowers your faith. Remember: God spilled the Blood of His Son to see that your loved one would have eternal life. God listens to us with great attention when we pray for the salvation of our unsaved loved ones. Do not listen to the false religious idea that God chooses some to get saved and some to burn in hell. God didn’t predestinate anyone to burn. God desires that all get saved but man must cooperate with God’s saving grace. Secondly, we must pray that laborers would be sent into their path. So many times we want to be the ones to win our loved ones to Jesus. But many times it has to be someone else besides us.

Sometimes people do not listen to ones they are overly familiar with. That isn’t to say that you shouldn’t remain a good witness to them. Matthew 9:38 says, “Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth laborers into his harvest.” When praying for your loved ones, ask God to send a gospel toting and quoting laborer into their path. Now we are praying scripturally and now God will do His part. Next, do not allow the devil to feed you thoughts that salvation is just too far from your loved ones. Many times we look at the lifestyles of loved ones and start believing that they could never get saved. But look at Romans 10:8-9, “But what says it? (The Bible) The word is near you, EVEN IN YOUR MOUTH, AND IN

YOUR HEART: that is, the word of faith, which we preach. That if you shall confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and shall believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.” Salvation is not far from them; salvation has been in their heart and mouth the whole time! We need to show people just how easy faith begins. It begins with our words spoken from our hearts. Your loved ones are never out of reach. Finally, pray that the Word of God would grow and prevail in their heart. (Acts 19:20) As laborers come into their path and share the Word of God with your loved ones, make power available for them by praying that the Word would take root. Never give up on you loved ones!


Tanglewood Group focuses on the Social Aspect of Care Contributed Article Tanglewood

The residents and staff alike at Tanglewood’s facilities have been having a lot of fun lately. The activity-based facilities in Jamestown have been focused on immersing all of their residents in the many activities and they are all reaping the benefits of socialization and laughter from their experiences. The most recent instance of this was evident at the annual Mardi Gras party held at Tanglewood Manor. The staff decided to spice things up this year by adding a Photobooth activity that was available to staff and residents. Photo booths have become popular attractions at weddings, parties and other social events. Participants use props such as hats, wigs and costumes to dress up and then have their photographs taken. The results can be quite

entertaining. As Terri Ingersoll, Tanglewood COO stated, “We feel that care must be fun

and laughing is an element of the “plan of care” for our residents. This activity was a wonderful

opportunity for our staff and residents to spend an enjoyable afternoon laughing together.”

ing Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, Pinterest and Wordpress blog accounts. They have also started “Tanglewood T-shirt” and “Traveling T-shirt” promotions whereby employees and friends can have their photos posted on the company’s social media sites while wearing T-shirts with the company’s logos. These activities have generated a lot of interest with both residents and staff, and have increased morale and productivity. Tanglewood’s hope is that by becoming more visible to the community at large the general public can see the loving and friendly atmosphere that their resident’s and staff enjoy on a daily basis. Additional photos from the day’s events can be seen on the Tanglewood Manor Facebook page: http:// The company has been the past several months to expand its Social glewoodManor.

playoffs Heating Up With 29 29 area teams Seeking titles WHEN


you WANT! .99



By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

Get ready for a wild ride. Both the Jamestown boys and girls teams have No. 1 seeds. So do the Clymer Lady Pirates, Frewsburg Lady Bears, Brocton Bulldogs and Silver Creek Black Knights. Those will be just a handful of teams to keep your eye on this weekend as Section 6 high school playoff basketball heats up. On the boys’ side, Class AA features Jamestown (16-2) as the team to beat. The Red Raiders will play host to either No. 8 Frontier (9-9) or No. 9 West Seneca West (9-9) on Friday. Barring any colossal upsets, Jamestown would then take on either No. 4 Clarence (14-4) or No. 5 Lockport (12-6) the following Thursday at Buffalo St. College. Down in Class B1, No. 10 Dunkirk (7-12) held off No. 15 Springville in the play-in game. The Marauders face a quick turnaround and play No. 7 Depew. Across in Class B2, No. 4 Fredonia awaits the winner of No. 5 Akron and No. 13 Gowanda. The Hillbillies will host their playoff game Friday. Also in B2, No. 5 Southwestern (12-6) has a winnable home game against No. 11 Medina (7-12) on Friday. The winner of that will travel to take on No. 3 Buffalo East (12-6). Class C1 features just one Chautauqua County team, with No. 10 Cassadaga Valley (8-10) traveling

to play No. 7 Maritime Charter (8-10). Should they win, the Cougars would earn a date with No. 2 Oracle (17-1), Friday. Class C2 offers a little more promise with Silver Creek (18-0) holding down the No. 1 rank thanks to an undefeated regular season. The Black Knights await the winner of No. 8 Olmstead (8-10) and No. 9 International Prep (5-12). The game will be in Silver Creek on Friday. Right behind Silver Creek is No. 2 Maple Grove (17-1). The Red Dragons are guaranteed to see a familiar opponent as either No. 7 Chautauqua Lake (10-8) or No. 10 Frewsburg (7-11) will come to town, Friday. No. 5 Westfield (12-6) shouldn’t be overlooked in Class B2 either as it has to size to compete with anyone. The first test will be No. 12 Buffalo Acad-

emy of Science (0-16). If it’s possible, Class D offers even more hope for a Sectional champion as Chautauqua County schools hold down the top three spots. No. 1 Brocton (15-1), No. 2 Sherman (13-5) and No. 3 Clymer (12-5) will all host playoff games on Friday. Brocton will get the winner of No. 8 Pine Valley (6-12) and No. 9 Forestville (513). Sherman will see either No. 7 Panama (5-12) or No. 10 West Valley (3-15). Clymer will get either No. 6 Global Concepts (510) or No. 11 Ripley (0-14). North Collins (8-9) and Ellicottville (8-10) are the No. 4 and 5 seeds, respectively, but realistically don’t offer much of a threat to Brocton, Sherman or Clymer. The girls’ side of the action

features just as many, if not more, potential Sectional champions. In Class AA, it’s once again No. 1 Jamestown (14-3) as the team to beat. The Lady Red Raiders will take on either No. 8 Orchard Park (8-10) or No. 9 Kenmore West (6-12). Jamestown will host the game Tuesday before (probably) moving on to the semifi nal round on Friday, March 1. No. 4 Dunkirk (13-5) is led by seniors Khee Nance and Lacey Clark and is the county’s only chance to come out of Class B1. The Lady Marauders handled No. 13 Depew at home and will not host No. 5 Newfane on Saturday afternoon. Class B2 features a county grudge match with No. 4 Southwestern (7-10) hosting No.

5 Fredonia (6-12). The two CCAA Division 1 rivals split their two meetings this season with each team winning on the road. The winner of that contest will earn a trip to Pioneer and a date with either No. 1 Wilson (16-1) or No. 8 Akron (7-11). Once again, Cassadaga Valley is the only Chautauqua County school in Class B2 and the No. 7 Lady Cougars (7-11) could have their hands full with a powerhouse No. 2 Randolph (15-3) squad. It’s almost a foregone conclusion that the winner of Class B2 will be a Chautauqua County school. The class is so talented, in fact, that

undefeated Chautauqua Lake (16-0) only earned the No. 2 seed. The No. 1 seed went to Frewsburg (16-2). The Lady Bears host No. 8 Portville (6-11) while the Lady Thunderbirds get a No. 7 Franklinville (8-10) team that they only beat by five earlier in the season. No. 4 Maple Grove (11-7) hosts No. 5 Silver Creek (9-8) for the honor of playing (probably) Frewsburg on Tuesday at Jamestown High School. Chautauqua County boasts four of the top five seeds in Class D with No. 1 Clymer (16-2) and No. 2 Sherman (16-2) playing the part of favorites. No. 3 Ellicot-

tville (11-6) could pose a problem, though. No. 8 Forestville (7-11) hosts No. 9 North Collins (3-15) for the right to play top-ranked Clymer on Saturday. No. 4 Pine Valley (10-8) hosts No. 5 Panama (7-10). History should tell you never to bet against a Tim Nobles led team in the playoffs as the Pine Valley Lady Panthers usually turn it on this time of the year. No. 7 Brocton (6-10) is the lucky team to draw the trip to Sherman on Saturday. Be sure to follow all the playoff action in the Chautauqua Star and online at

No. 15 Springville, 65-42, in a Section 6 Class B1 play-in game. Center Alex Crossan poured in a game-high 17 points while Manny Maisonet came off the bench to provide the team with a needed boost and 13 points. Dunkirk trailed with mere seconds left on the clock in the first quarter, but was able to use a pair of Maisonet free throws to take a lead after the first eight minutes. That shot in the arm propelled the Marauders to a 32-24 halftime lead and it wasn’t close again despite Dunkirk’s continued offensive woes. Dunkirk didn’t get a break as it traveled to No. 7 Depew on Wednesday. Perhaps fatigued from back-toback games, the Marauders went down meekly, 63-36. It was the second year in a row that Depew knocked Dunkirk out of the playoffs.

UCLA, Kareem is unquestionably one of the top-5 players in history. He had a staggeringly long career with the Milwaukee Bucks and L.A. Lakers. His sky hook remains the most unblockable shot ever. It was a thing of beauty and the 7-foot-2 (probably taller but most accounts) center made the sky hook as dangerous a weapon as there was. His role as “Roger” in the move Airplane only solidified his place on my team. Of course, the NBA has seen its share of players who accomplished amazing things. With only a 12-man roster, there are certainly players who were very hard to omit.

comentary continueD from Pg 1 teams. He was Finals MVP three times. He was league MVP three times. He was co-captain of the greatest team ever assembled with the 1992 Dream Team. He had a three-year stretch where he averaged 22 points/7 rebounds/12 assists per game. That’s comparable to LeBron for you younger fans. There’s no one, ever, that I would rather have bringing the ball up the court than Magic. Shooting Guard: Michael Jordan — Can we stop looking for “the next Michael Jordan”? It’s not Kobe. It’s not LeBron. It won’t be the next great player who comes down the road in 10 years. Jordan is in a league of his own. He was an All Star in each of his 16 seasons. He was league MVP five times and it’s only that few because the league got sick of giving it to him every year and named the likes of Karl Malone and Charles Barkley MVP when it probably should have been Jordan’s. The guy was Final’s MVP six times. He was on nine First Team All-Defense Teams. He won seven scoring titles. He somehow averaged a staggering 34/6/6 over a four-year stretch. The man who is obviously the best player to ever step on the court is going to be on the team. There shouldn’t be any arguments there. Small Forward: Larry Bird — Has there ever been a more unassuminglooking superstar in any sport? And make no mistake, he was a superstar of the highest quality. He was a 12-time All Star, threetime MVP and four-time MVP runner-up. One of the purest shooters in the history of the game, but

Bird did far more than just score. He has the highest career assists per game average (6.1) of any forward in history and he averaged a triple-double (24-10-10) in the ’86 Finals. The rivalry between Bird’s Celtics and Magic’s Lakers defi ned the NBA in the ‘80s. If I have to pick one player to take the last shot to win a game, I don’t even think about it, it’s Bird. He was on the ’92 Dream Team and he’s sure starting on my team. Power Forward: Tim Duncan — Duncan doesn’t always get love because he’s by far the most boring superstar of this or any generation. He doesn’t throw down thunderous dunks over seven-footers and he doesn’t knock down buzzerbeating three-pointers. What he does is consistently play impenetrable defense. What he does do is post up defenders and bank in two points off the glass. His nickname of “The Big Fundamental” is well deserved. He IS the San Antonio Spurs. They quietly won four championships from 1999-2007 and Duncan was the best player on that team. He won back-to-back league MVPs in ’02 and ’03. He was Finals MVP in ’99, ’03 and ’06. He not only earned his nickname, but he also earned his reputation as the best power forward of all time and, more importantly, a winner. Center: Bill Russell — Russell is another player who wasn’t flashy and unfortunately played before many stats were kept. But do you want a stat that really sums up Russell? He was 10-0 in Game 7’s. The man refused to lose. He made blocking shots into an art form. Admittedly the game was different in the 50’s and 60’s, but

Russell averaged 21-27-5 during a three-year playoff run. That’s 21 points, 27 rebounds and five assists for those following at home. One of my earliest memories of sports as a kid was opening up a magazine and seeing this smiling older man holding more championship rings than I could count. At the time, I didn’t know who that man was or even what sport he played. But that man, of course, was Russell, holding his unprecedented 11 NBA Championship rings. He played 13 seasons and won 11 rings. Do you think we’ll ever see that again?

Get Back to


the stats of a Karl Malone or an Elgin Baylor, but this is my team and Sir Charles is unequivocally my favorite player of all time. I never said this team was unbiased. Or maybe I did, but either way, Barkley was undersized for a power forward, yet routinely out-worked, out-hustled and out-muscled bigger, more athletic guys. He was MVP in 1993, a key member of the ’92 Dream Team and averaged 30-11-2 during his three-year best. Few forwards could ever match The Chuck Wagon’s coast-to-coast speed, power, finesse and finish. Every team needs character guys, but that’s far from the only reason Chuck’s on the team. Center: Wilt Chamberlain — Sure, Wilt was a womanizing, ball-hogging, stat-obsessed, self-destructive, lazy loser (though he did win two championships later in his career). But no player in history has ever physically dominated the game like The Dipper. You probably know about his 100-point game, but you might be unaware that Wilt averaged over 50 points for an entire season — and didn’t win MVP! He won seven consecutive scoring titles, won four MVP awards, was a 13-time All Star, averaged 30 points/22 rebounds for 10 straight seasons and is the only person ever with 30K points and 20K rebounds for his career. Think what you want about this 7-foot1 monster, but he’ll always have a spot on my team. Center: Kareem AbdulJabbar — You had to expect the Association’s all-time leading scorer to make the cut. With 38,387 points, six NBA titles, six regular season MVP awards and three collegiate national championships at

Honorable mention

Guards: John Stockton, Bob Cousy, Pete Marivich, Isaih Thomas, Allen Iverson. Forwards: Julius “Dr. J” Erving, Kevin Garnett, Bob Pettit, Elgin Baylor. Centers: Shaquille O’Neal, Moses Malone, Hakeem Olajuwon. That might be a roster right there that could give mine a run for its money, but that just proves how hard this was. And yes, I intentionally left Karl Malone off of both lists because, in my opinion, he’s the most overrated player ever. Yes, he’s the second-leading scorer in league history. But he never won, might not have been the best player on his own team (Stockton) and routinely got shredded by elite players. Not to mention he was seen as dirty and not highly respected by his peers. My team is just fine without The Mailman, thank you. Do you think you can do better? Did I inadvertently miss someone (which is entirely possible)? Send me your thoughts to stefan.

Contributed Article Jamestown Ironmen

The Jamestown Ironmen dominated their way to a 6-0 shutout victory over the Fresno Monsters (12-286) on Friday night during North American Hockey League action at the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena. Ryan Doucet kick-started the scoring for Jamestown (30-14-4) with a powerplay goal 16:44 into the first period. The assist came from Kenny Curtis. Tyler Dunagan buried another score less than two minutes later with assists from Nico Sierra and Ryan Urso. Michael Mazzotta and Nathan Ropelewski both chipped in with goals during the second period to give the hometown team a 4-0 lead. Assists for that pair of scores were accredited to Urso, Tyler Minx, Elliot Tisdale and Joe Mottiqua. Dunagan and Doucet each added another goal in the fi nal period en route to the shutout victory.

The Bills are expected to approach Fitzpatrick in a bid to restructure the deal, but that had not happened as of last week. In re-signing Jackson, the Bills have, at the very least, added depth to the quarterback spot. Selected in the second round of the 2006 draft by Minnesota, the Alabama State product has appeared in 51 games, and has starting Doug Marrone, head coach of the Buffalo Bills, listens experience with both the Viduring an NFL football news conference in Toronto on kings and Seattle Seahawks.

Jackson's agent Joel Segal said his client was eager to stay in Buffalo despite his lack of playing time last year. ''Tarvaris told me he didn't need to test free agency,'' Segal said. ''He wanted to stay with the Bills and told me to deal only with the Bills.'' Jackson's best season came in 2011, his one and only year with Seattle. He went 7-7, putting up career highs with 14 touchdowns, 271 completions and 3,091 yards. The Bills have also indicated an interest in selecting a quarterback in the draft in April. Marrone's background is on offense. He's a former NFL offensive lineman who spent the 2006-08 seasons as the New Orleans Saints offensive coordinator. Though he didn't call the plays, his arrival in New Orleans coincided with the team signing star quarterback Drew Brees.

wished him the best of luck. McGee learned of his release a day after he left Buffalo, and after he met with several members of the Bills new coaching staff, and also had his knee examined by a team doctor. No one provided him any indication that he was about to be released. ''Yeah, it was a bit of a shock,'' said McGee, who was selected by Buffalo in the fourth round of the 2003 draft out of Northwestern State. ''But there's nothing I can do or argue about or get mad about.'' The move is the latest under new head coach Doug Marrone, who took over last month after Chan Gailey was fired following three straight losing seasons. Marrone has brought in an entirely new staff that

includes former New York Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine handling the same role in Buffalo. Pettine continues to transform his defense, with McGee's departure coming two days after the Bills released veteran safety George Wilson and linebacker Nick Barnett. The Bills need to free up salary-cap space in order to add to their roster. That includes the possibility of re-signing two key starters, safety Jairus Byrd and left guard Andy Levitre, who are both eligible to become free agents next month. McGee's effectiveness had declined over the past four seasons, a stretch in which an assortment of injuries limited him to 33 games, including 19 starts. When healthy, McGee was

a dual threat at both cornerback and kickoff returner. He had 17 interceptions in 122 games. A 2005 Pro Bowl selection for his special teams play, McGee holds numerous team kickoff return records including career yards, (5,450), career touchdowns (five), and longest return (a 104-yard return against Miami in 2004). In a 37-27 win over Cincinnati in 2005, McGee became the first NFL player to score on a kickoff and interception return in the same game. McGee's one regret is failing to help the Bills reach the playoffs. At 13 seasons, the Bills own the NFL's longest active postseason drought, and it's a stretch in which they've enjoyed only one winning season a 9-7 fi nish in 2004.

''It's defi nitely a big regret, because I know fans are really looking forward to being in that playoff atmosphere,'' McGee said. ''I know I was. But we just never got it done.'' The Bills also announced signing two free agents: quarterback Aaron Corp and offensive lineman Hutch Eckerson. Corp rejoins the Bills after he spent last offseason in Buffalo. He's an undrafted free agent out of Richmond, and also spent two seasons at Southern California. Eckerson, an undrafted free agent out of South Carolina, was cut by New Orleans before the start of last season. In 2011, Eckerson was cut by San Diego before the start of the regular season.

pavelec Stops 29 In Jets' 2-1 Win over Sabres By John Wawrow AP Sports Writer

So long as goalie Ondrej Pavelec stays on top of his game, Winnipeg Jets coach Claude Noel doesn't have to worry much about his team's struggling offense. Pavelec did his part on Tuesday night, making 29 saves to help the Jets snap a three-game skid with a 2-1 win over the unraveling Buffalo Sabres. ''I thought Pavelec was fabulous, especially with that kind of pressure,'' Noel said. ''Pavelec's been really good, and in this game he was outstanding.'' And that made it easier for Noel to assess his offense extending its string to seven games since scoring three goals in regulation. ''To me it isn't about scoring goals. We're going to get our goals,'' Noel said. ''For me, this is really good for morale. It really gives us something to build off of.'' Pavelec was particularly sharp in stopping the final 11 shots he faced after Jason Pominville scored to cut the Jets' lead to 2-1 in the final minute of the second period. Andrew Ladd's goal that made it 2-0 early in the second stood up as the winner, and Bryan Little also scored for Winnipeg. The Jets won for the third time in 10 games while opening a season-high five-game road swing. ''After three straight losses, we wanted to get a good feeling back in the room,'' Ladd said. Demoralization and frustration continues to creep into the Sabres' locker room, which remained closed until 15 minutes after the players were booed off the ice. ''It's obviously disappointing and frustrating,'' Pominville said. ''We've got to be better.'' The boos began at end of the fi rst period and grew louder in the second when Buffalo experienced difficulty getting out of its zone. The Sabres then earned a Bronx cheer when they fi nally crossed the Jets blue line. ''We deserve to get booed,'' goalie Ryan Miller said. ''They just want you to work hard. They just want you to give them something to cheer about, and we let them down.'' Buffalo dropped to 4-10-1

minute in on the Jets' first shot on goal. That was reminiscent of how Boston built a 2-0 lead 87 seconds into a 4-3 win over Buffalo on Sunday. And the Sabres continue to hurt themselves with sloppy giveaways and lethargic play inside their own zone. Little was left standing alone in front, where he was set up by Evander Kane, who outmuscled two Sabres defenders to dig out the puck at the end boards. Nathan Gerbe's giveaway inside his own zone led to Ladd's goal 6 minutes into the second period. ''Something needs to get shaken up with our attitude more than anything,'' Miller said. ''It's defi nitely Buffalo Sabres' defenseman Christian Ehrhoff (10), of mental on our part.''

NHL Standings

NHL power rankings (through feb. 20)

By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

These rankings are the opinions of a panel of two. Don’t agree with our rankings? Send us your thoughts at 1) Chicago Blackhawks 13-0-3 Hawks tied the record for longest point streak to start a season — San Jose on Friday. 2) Anaheim Ducks 12-2-1 A fivegame win streak showed just how tough the Ducks can be every night. 3) Pittsburgh Penguins 11-5-0 Sidney Crosby has five three-point games in Feb. for the red-hot Penguins. 4) Boston Bruins 9-2-2 A lull in the schedule has Boston at a league-low 13 games. Will the rest help or hurt? 5) Montreal Canadians 11-4-1 Nothing like a five-game win streak to jump from fourth to first in the Northeast. 6) New Jersey Devils 9-3-4 Tied with Pittsburgh for most points in the Atlantic, but headed in opposite directions. 7) Vancouver Canucks 8-3-4 A rough week has triggered some nervousness up in British Columbia. 8) Nashville Predators 8-4-5 Preds just continue to lose games in OT. Two points is better than one, fellas. 9) Toronto Maple Leafs 10-7-0 A hiccup in Tampa broke up what was a nice streak for the Leafs. 10) St. Louis Blues 9-6-1 Games against Colorado and Columbus have the Blues licking their chops. 11) San Jose Sharks 8-4-3 Stopped the bleeding with win over St. Louis, but plenty of damage from seven-game skid. 12) Ottawa Senators 9-6-2 Ho hum. Another win and another 37-save performance from Craig Anderson. 13) Carolina Hurricanes 8-5-1 They’re first in the Southeast. That has to count for something, right? 14) New York Rangers 8-6-1 Another 1-1-1 week proves this team isn’t quite there yet. 15) Detroit Red Wings 7-6-3 An unDetriot-like 12 goals allowed contributed to a rough week for Wings. 16) Phoenix Coyotes 8-6-2 Fourteen points in the last 10 games has Phoenix thinking playoffs again. 17) Dallas Stars 8-7-1 Jaromir Jagr is closing in on another career milestone with 995 assists. 18) Tampa Bay Lightning 8-6-1 The New Orleans Saints of the NHL. Probably the only watchable team in the Southeast. 19) Minnesota Wild 7-6-2 Rock solid record at home (6-2-1) is at least something to give fans hope. 20) Edmonton Oilers 6-6-3 They’re not terrible, but they don’t exactly strike fear into anyone either. 21) Philadelphia Flyers 7-9-1 Eccentric goalie Ilya Bryzgalov is four wins away from 200 for his career. 22) Los Angeles Kings 6-6-2 Mediocrity will not get you into the playoffs, let alone another Stanley Cup. 23) Colorado Avalanche 6-7-1 The Ryan O’Reilly issue needs to be dealt with if this team is going to move forward. 24) Winnipeg Jets 6-8-1 This team simply can’t afford penalties with its leagueworst 68 percent penalty kill unit. 25) New York Islanders 6-9-1 22-year old John Tavares is already closing in on 100 career goals (95). 26) Calgary Flames 5-6-3 An 0-3 record in shootouts is troubling, but so is the rest of this team. 27) Florida Panthers 4-7-4 This could actually be the worst team in the league with its -21 goal differential. 28) Buffalo Sabres 6-10-1 That 2-0 start seems like a distant dream for fans in what’s been a nightmare season. 29) Washington Capitals 5-9-1 How much longer will management let first-year coach Adam Oates captain this ship? 30) Columbus Blue Jackets 4-10-2 Three straight losses shows Columbus might not have hit rock bottom yet.

siX inDucteD into cHautauQua sPorts Hall of fame continueD from Pg 1 Cederquist coached for four years before his team won a meet. The next year his numbers more than doubled and the rest, as they say, is history. Chautauqua produced three consecutive championships from 1979-1981. Several of Cederquist’s athletes qualified for the Section championships, including Shawn

Smith, who was a Section 6 1,000 meter champion and the sectional record holder. But what does a coach take more pride in, the team success or the individual records? “Gosh that’s a tough question,” Cederquist remarked. “I take pride in both. The goal when I first started coaching was just to win

a meet. We got that under our belt. The kids got going and the championships started to come. The kids kept the program going and got more and more belief in what we were doing and pride in the program. The state championships started to come from there.” The next inductee was the late, great Jim Foti, whose

honor was accepted on his behalf by his three daughters, who came from all over the country to be at the event. Foti, who passed away in 2004 at the age of 94, starred in basketball and football at Jamestown High School. He went on to St. Bonaventure University before moving to John Carroll University, where he was named to the all-time football team and the John Carroll Hall of Fame. He then started a coaching career where he amassed 466 varsity victories. He is also a member of the Wheeling Hall of Fame and the West Virginia Sports Hall of Fame. Racing extraordinaire Ron Blackmer, who kept the audience in stitches basically from the time he stepped up to the microphone to the time he took his seat again. From 1960 to 1978, Blackmer was a dominant force at both Stateline Speedway in Busti and at Eriez Speedway in Erie. He compiled 133 feature wins in the Sportsman Division, which was nearly three times more than his closest competitor. His championships were numerous and his success expanded to Olean, Wattsburg, Warren, Smethport and RollO-Bowl speedways. Now retired as the owner of West End Auto Parts, Blackmer is also a member of the Warren County Sports Hall of Fame. With the guest speaker being a two-time Olympic champion and four-time Olympic medalist in the sport of wrestling, the next induction held some added meaning. The inductee was Walt Thurnau, who for 36 years could be found leading the Southwestern Trojans to victory on the mats. Thurnau had the good fortune to coach under another coaching legend, Clarence “Flash” Olson when he first broke into the field. Thurnau then took over the reigns in 1975 and went on to post a 297-97 career record. He coached 17 wrestlers to the New York State tournament, including state champions Ed Pawlak in 1999 and Jim Nelson in 2002.

Again, in a sport where athletes can have both team and individual success, what does a coach take more pride in? “Nobody’s ever asked me that,” Thurnau considered. “You take a great deal of pride in either one of those. I guess if I had to pick, I would take more pride in the team having success instead of the individual. A lot of times individual success is just God given. Some people are just blessed with physical tools. But back in the old days, when there were 15 weight classes, you had to have a lot of support from a lot of different people. I would say I would probably take more pleasure in the team success.” Former Jamestown basketball superstar Jim Young was the final inductee on the night. His speech was somewhat rushed as he had to hop on a plane to go back home to Northern California, where he is coaching his high school team in the playoffs this week. That said, Young’s playing career was nothing short of phenomenal. He helped Jamestown to a Section 6 championship during the 1971-72 season then went on a record-setting career at St. Lawrence University. He then signed on with the English Basketball Association, where he was the only American guard in the league. “It was a step up from my college at St. Lawrence,” Young said. “It was the equivalent of D2. It was only the 10th year of the English Basketball Association, so that’s fairly young for a basketball association. They were recruiting guys who couldn’t make the NBA. It was like middlecollege level basketball.” The momentous evening concluded with some words from Baumgartner, now the Athletic Director at Edinboro University. He shared some stories from his wrestling days and also gave some life lessons he’s learned. He urged the young athletes in attendance to do

their best. That way, even if they fail, they can be proud of themselves for not selling themselves short. Baumgartner also made mention of the recent news that wrestling is on the chopping block by the International Olympic Committee. He’s on an American board that is going to fight the decision and hopes to save the sport that has made him what he is today. It was a wonderful event, a touching evening and a fitting tribute to the six men who earned their spot in the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame. Area athletes honored were: Tiffany Decker (trapshooting), Ben Swanson (shooting); Megan Mietelski (Fredonia State lacrosse); Sarah Ficarro (Fredonia State diving); Bronco Rollins (Fredonia State track and field); Reilly Condidorio (Fredonia State soccer); Anna Jones (Mt. Union track and field); Aubree Jones (Mt. Union track and field); Kelsey Akin, Brittany Ihrig, Courtney Magera, Renee Massa, Morgan Molfi no and Emily Windoft ( JCC swimming); Andrew March ( Jamestown swimming); Nick Lenart (Panama basketball); Lyle Howard (Pine Valley baseball); Zach Fancher (Pine Valley baseball); Thad Johnson (Frewsburg baseball); Trent Thompson (Fredonia baseball); Christina Walter (Maple Grove track and field); Oliver Simpson (Maple Grove football); Jake Swan (Maple Grove football); Dan Lictus (Clymer football); Zeddie Williams (Silver Creek football and lacrosse); Nick Nocek (Fredonia wrestling); Cory Wefi ng (Maple Grove cross country); Maple Grove Cross Country Team; Hope Pietrocarlo (Maple Grove cross country); Dr. Robert Rappole (Maple Grove cross country); Frewsburg girls basketball team; Frewsburg boys golf team; Frewsburg girls softball team.
