By Daniel Meyer Star News Writer

Continuing its goal of promoting the cinematic arts in the State University of New York system, the annual SUNYWide Film Festival will take place next month at SUNY Fredonia as students and faculty are invited to present their work in an academic forum. Scheduled to take place from Thursday, April 10 through Saturday, April 12, the festival will help to highlight the strengths of the cinematic arts programs throughout the SUNY system while at the same time allowing participants to interact with one another and members of the community. The festival has proven to be popular in years past because of the fact that fi lm and video is a thriving field of study throughout the SUNY system. From traditional Hollywood narratives to advanced animation and from experimental fi lm and video to detailed documentaries, students and faculty are exploring personal visions through what is known as time-based image making. The festival allows students and staff to share work that they believe best exemplifies the dedication and skill found on the dif-

ferent SUNY campuses. After four years of focusing on the production of cinematic arts, festival organizers wanted to expand the festival to include specific concentration on research and teaching. An emphasis on those initiatives should allow participants to openly share some of the specific details of their research and instruction methods. The festival will showcase some of the best student fi lms from across the SUNY system. Films are submitted by students and selected by a prescreening committee. The fi lms will play during the festival and will then be judged by a guest juror, with prizes to be awarded to the “Best of the Fest” on the fi nal day of the festival. New this year will be student paper presentations, set to take place on Friday, April 11. For the first time

in the festival's history, students of the cinematic arts will submit their papers for public presentation. Presentation of each paper will not exceed 20 minutes and will immediately be followed by a moderated question-andanswer session. Monetary prizes will be awarded, with the number and quality of entries determining what prizes will be offered. Also happening on April 11 is a special focus on teaching of the cinematic arts as faculty and staff members will be asked to participate in a discussion on instruction. This unique opportunity will allows professors, instructors and lecturers to engage with their SUNY colleagues, help to build working relationships and openly address mutual challenges that class-

room instructors encounter on a regular basis. The workshop on teaching of the cinematic arts will focus on two key components: projects and technology. Specifically, faculty and staff will be asked to share their successful class assignments, also discuss what assignments have not proven to be successful and share tips on how they engage students and teach beyond the hardware/software that is typically focused on.

learned about fractions. In fractions, there’s a term called the ‘denominator.’ The job we had to do was to fi nd the common denominator, thus reducing the fraction to its base form. Essentially, the common denominator was the root of solving the equation. What’s the common denominator? Businesses are constantly closing and taking their employment with them - Petri, Lake Shore Hospital and now Carriage House. At what point do we recognize that the fault is not that of the organism striving for life, but the one who is sucking out that life. I’m not a letter-writer, but I am a praying person. It is my prayer that our leaders would have the wisdom to create an environment that caters to jobs and employment. We have the potential to lead in this great nation, rather than be an example of a disastrously failing business model. Scott Wise is the editor of the Chautauqua Star.

This week we are featuring “Angel” and “Jessie.” Angel is a sweet ten-year-old Miniature Pinscher that was brought to us when her owner had to move into assisted living. She is very social, likes to go for short walks and would do in almost any home. She does need a refresher course on housebreaking. Jessie is a beautiful one-year-old Siamese mix. She is a bit shy, so she needs a quiet home. She would be a great pet if given a chance to adjust into a new home. If you can find a place in your heart for either of these great pets, or any of the others waiting for a second chance, stop in at the Adoption Center at 2825 Strunk Road, Jamestown.

County executive Announces Retirement of Probation director Contributed Article Office of the County Executive

Chautauqua County Executive Vincent W. Horrigan announced today the retirement of Chautauqua County Probation Director Linda Shields effective May 2. Shields was appointed as probation director in September 2008, but her career with the department began in 1981 when she was first employed as a parttime probation officer. Over the years, she earned her way up in the department serving as a senior probation officer, probation supervisor, and acting director. As director, Shields effectively worked to uphold the department’s commitment of holding court referred offenders accountable for their actions, working with probationers to facilitate positive change in their behavior, creating a safer community, and advocating for victim’s rights. “Throughout the course of her career, Linda has worked closely with schools, police departments, courts, community agencies, and other county departments to monitor the compliance of probationers and connect them with the services and programs they need to become and stay law-abiding citizens,” said Horrigan. “Her leadership, strong work ethic, and determination to help oth-

We slept wonderfully that night. Fresh, fluffy pillows that felt like clouds and smelled like skipping through a meadow.

While changing clean and bacteria free. our pillowcases, I considered cutAnother odd thing that we do is washting off one of those annoying pillow ing our couch cushion covers. This labels that no one reads. doesn’t happen nearly as often, maybe This prompted me to read the label that nobody reads. I was surprised to see washing instructions, because the town thought had never crossed my mind. Somewhat reluctantly, I decided to give this strange idea a shot. Our pillows weren’t old, they were on our wedding registry and we had only been married about one year at this time. But who doesn’t like fresh, clean bedding? With some bleach, laundry detergent and fabric softener, our pillows looked brand new again. I remembered my mom throwing a tennis ball in the dryer with our winter coats to fluff them back up when I was younger, and decided to try this as well.

once a year (or after a couch emergency which typically involves a toddler). However, every time the couch cushions are washed, our entire first floor smells like that skipping through a meadow smell. Use your best judgment with this one, as many materials are not machinewashable. Our couch is off-white microfiber that washes well, and gets dirty just as easily as it washes. A couch that, in hindsight, we wouldn’t have purchased if we had realized small children would be attacking it quite so soon. If you do choose to wash your cushion covers, turn them inside out first and choose a gentle cycle along with a gentle laundry detergent. You can allow them to air

dry, or put them in the dryer. Air-drying will cause them to be stiff, and they may seem a bit stretched out. Drying, as long as you monitor the time can restore some of the stretching that has happened in your couch’s lifetime and make it look new next to new again. Lastly, although this idea may be more common than the other two ideas listed above, is washing curtains. Yes, even shower curtains! Much like the couch cushions, please use your best judgment as to whether or not this idea should be utilized in your home. Not all curtains are made to go through a washing machine. If you do decide that you want to take the washing-machine plunge, be sure to only wash like colors. This is likely your curtains’ first encounter with water and other fabrics so the colors run the risk of bleeding. Choose the gentle cycle, once again, along with gentle laundry soap. Depending on the weather outside, line drying would be an excellent choice, but using a dryer will work as well. If washing shower curtain liners, don’t hesitate to use bleach and get all that nasty gunk off of the bottom. Your tub will thank you. Now relax and smell your house for a few minutes! As always, thanks for reading, and Happy Homemaking!

Rev. Chrystal has served in nursery, Sunday school and the audio/ visual department. Rev.

"Mayville is our county seat and we look forward to sharing the gospel with such an integral part of Chautauqua County.” The Mitcheners, along with their three children have been faithfully attending Family Church since September 2005. During that time, Jeff has served in several areas such as property maintenance, various building projects, technology department and ushering. In the past he has been employed as a factory worker and a local business owner, but has since been called to dedicate his time and talents to serving the

Lord through Family Church. Jeff was hired in January 2010 to oversee the building and grounds at the Jamestown Family Church. Renee has served in nursery, the audio/ visual department, Sunday school among other areas. Renee has also been employed as a public school teacher for many years. The Mitcheners are also currently attending ministry training school. It is an exciting time for the Family Churches. With these two locations, there will be eight Family Churches in this region. The vision is to continue growing and reaching more and more lives with the gospel. For more information on the Family Churches, visit fcintl.org.

COLON CANCER AWARENESS EVENT, CONTINUED FROM Pg 6 Myers said this surprised her because there are hundreds of different chemotherapies available. However, many cannot be used depending on a person’s health condition. Out of hundreds of chemotherapies available, only 20 might apply to a certain person. “This is one of the reasons I want to raise money for Roswell,” she said. “There are so many different types of chemotherapies that can be made, but everybody’s cancer looks different and reacts different to treatment.” Myers, 17, has one brother, Austin, who is 15 years old and in the ninth grade at RCS. She plans to attend Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in the fall for New Media Marketing. Her mother was an RIT graduate and worked as a mechanical engineer. Her father, Randy, is also a mechanical engineer. “Cancer Isn’t Always Pink,” was the title Myers came up with to focus on colon cancer, represented by a dark blue ribbon, and to remind people of the various forms of cancer.

“When most people think of cancer, breast cancer comes to mind because it’s the most talked about and most supported,” she said. “People always associate the pink ribbon with cancer, but cancer ribbons come in many colors to raise awareness of the many forms of the disease.” Noting two astonishing facts about colon cancer, Myers said it’s the second most lethal cancer in the United States, among men and women, and one in 20 people are diagnosed with it. According to the American Cancer Society, colon cancer is expected to cause about 50,310 deaths during 2014. Because many people are not getting tested, only about four out of 10 are diagnosed at an early stage when treatment is most likely to be successful. Myers said her goal for the event is to have 200 participants. Although registrations are coming in slowly, she is optimistic. With the help of others, she has been busy publicizing the walk/run, spreading the word and handing out registration forms.

Randolph Area Community Development Corporation (RACDC), also known as “Enjoy Randolph,” has partnered with Myers and is co-organizing the event with her. Together, they are partnering with WCA Hospital that is bringing a team of people to Randolph on the day of the event. The team will be at the fire hall during the walk/run providing information to people about keeping the colon healthy, the right foods to eat, and getting the proper screenings. Myers said it’s going to be a social event where people can stop in to get information, food, raffle tickets and write on the luminary wall, if they wish. “I’m so excited and passionate about this walk and I’m really looking forward to the event,” she said. “I’ve been so focused on my schoolwork all through high school and now I’m doing something that isn’t school related.” Participants can register up until the event but are asked to sign-up as soon as possible. Walk-in registrations will be accepted on the day of the event — March 29 — and everyone is welcome. Registration forms and more information can be found at the Randolph Municipal Building on Main Street or by contacting Myers at (716) 485-8446 or Tonia Hall at (716) 358-9701, ext. 208.

Faculty member James ivey And students to Portray Life of Justice william o. douglas At Jackson Center

Contributed Article SUNY Fredonia

A staged reading of the play, “Mountain – The Journey of Justice Douglas,” will be presented Saturday, March 29 by Department of Theatre and Dance Professor James Ivey and seniors Lindsay Zimmerman and Steve Russell at the Robert H. Jackson Center in Jamestown. The event is slated 8 p.m. at the center located at 305 E. 4th St. Prior to the performance will be a reception for SUNY Fredonia alumni at 6 p.m. in the center’s banquet room. Dr. Ivey joined the faculty of theatre and dance at SUNY Fredonia in the fall of 2000 as associate professor and chair of theatre. He performed at the Jackson Center once before in a one-man show depicting the life of attorney Clarence Darrow. Dr. Ivey has also trained with Antonio Fava at the Scuola Internazionale dell'Attore Comico in Reggio-Emilia, Italy, in the tradition of commedia dell'arte while on sabbatical in the fall of 2006, and for the last two seasons led the Acting Troupe at SUNY Fredonia’s Madrigal Feaste. Ms. Zimmerman is a Musical Theatre major from Rochester, and Mr. Russell a Musical Theatre major from Buffalo. The play, by Douglas Scott, is an exploration and celebration of the life of William O. Douglas (18981980). Beginning and ending on the last day of his life, the play spans his 81 years: as Justice on the Supreme Court where he was defender of civil liberties, personal privacy and the wilderness, as chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) fighting a corrupt Wall Street, professor at Yale, his four marriages, his mountain climbing and globetrotting through such lands as Iran and the Himalayas, and his child-

hood in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State. The issues are as timely as the morning's headlines. The action of the play occurs within the mind of a dying man. Playing against the other two actors, who enact a multitude of memories (e.g., FDR, Richard Nixon, Louis Brandeis, his own parents, wives and children), Douglas struggles to find the meaning of his life. The play ends with a passionate reaffirmation of the power of courage over fear, of the individual over the technological state. Tickets for the staged reading are $10/person ($5.00/student or senior). The hors d’oeuvres reception prior to performance is complimentary for Fredonia alumni. Alumni who wish to participate can send $10/person (check made payable to “Fredonia Alumni Association”) to Office of Alumni Affairs 286 Central Avenue Fredonia, NY 14063, no later than Monday, March 24. For more information, contact the Fredonia Office of Alumni Affairs at (716) 673-3553. Tickets for the general public are available at the Jackson Center.

On Wednesday evening, March 26, four presenting artists will be featured in the final Salon presented in conjunction with Women Create. This juried exhibit of women’s art at the 3rd on 3rd Gallery in downtown Jamestown, New York, closes on Saturday, March 29. Pictured here is “Lily Party,” Deb Lanni’s giclee print of composite digital images.

leen Tenpas of North Clymer. Joining them will be Emily Breedlove of Ithaca’s nearby Freeville, New York, and Ellen Paquette of Warren, Pennsylvania, who were originally scheduled for a Salon that was cancelled due to the weather. A professor and media arts program coordinator at Jamestown Commu-

nity College, Deb Lanni teaches photography, video and multimedia storytelling. She is committed to making images and telling stories that increase awareness of both the wonder of the natural world and the problems that face it. She believes that through the various communication art forms we can reach hearts and inspire change.

Lanni has three works on exhibit: “Lily Party,” a giclee print of composite digital images; “Man Ray, Sabbatier,” a solarized giclee print of digital image; and “Natura Feminina,” a split-toned giclee print from scanned, silver gelatin negative. Kathleen Tenpas is displaying “Sunrise,” a photograph printed on handmade paper. A lifetime farm resident with a Masters in Creative Writing: Poetry from the MacGregor School of Antioch University, Tenpas has been an Artist in Residence through the Arts in the Schools program of the Arts Council for Chautauqua County and a teacher of poetry in the Special Studies program of Chautauqua Institution. Most recently, she has given workshops at the Jamestown Audubon Society in natural dyes and leaf pounding and at the Write Around the Block summer Writers’

Workshop in Bemus Point, New York. Emily Breedlove is a junior at SUNY Fredonia, working toward her BFA degree with a concentration in sculpture and a minor in Museum Studies with a concentration in art history. She is part of the creative team currently producing bronze sculptures that will be placed in downtown Fredonia in conjunction with a walking tour. Her work on display is called "Tufts" and is composed of hair, thread, and monofilament. A professional harpist as well as a professional artist, Ellen Paquette is exhibiting “Principessa Lontra,” an acrylic on panel, and “Bunnunciation,” an acrylic on paper. Both are examples of how her paintings manifest her love for animals and Renaissance art. Gallery hours for Women Create are 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday-

Friday, through March 28. Private viewings may be scheduled by calling (716) 664-2465, ext. 227. Both the exhibit and the salon are open to the public and free of charge. Women Create will close on SWAN Day, Saturday, March 29. SWAN Day, which stands for Support Women Artists Now, is an annual event held on the last Saturday in March, Women’s History Month. First celebrated in 2008, it is an international holiday designed to showcase the power and diversity of women’s creativity. Artist and instructor Debra Eck and photographer Jennifer Schlick are creative directors for Women Create, a community-minded, volunteer-run initiative to support and celebrate women artists by mounting a juried exhibit every other year. Women Create is presented in cooperation with the Reg Lenna Center for the Arts and sponsored by the Cattaraugus County Arts Council, Infinity Visual and Performing Arts, and Quick Solutions.

Dear Friend of Chautauqua Striders: Originally founded in 1979 as a local track club, Chautauqua Striders has since developed into a multi-faceted community organization, proudly offering diversified programs that incorporate its mission to “mentor and guide youth through education, advocacy and athletics.” The not-for-profit agency, based in Jamestown, New York, provides tutoring, mentoring, outreach, and athletic programs to more than 1,800 Chautauqua County youth annually. The goal of Chautauqua Striders is to help youth graduate high school inspired with the knowledge, skills, and confidence required for successful college and career experiences. Chautauqua Striders relies on federal, state, local grants, and donations to sustain programming. As we prepare for our next thirty-five years of programming and growth, funding sources become increasingly more difficult to secure. Consequently, we are making an appeal to alumni, friends, and family to make an investment in Chautauqua Striders. If you, a family member, or a friend have ever participated in any of Chautauqua Striders twenty-six programs, we ask that you support our programs through a tax-deductible donation to show your support of our mission of guiding and mentoring youth. Chautauqua Striders is always looking for success stories from former Chautauqua Striders program participants. If you have a story illustrating how Striders helped you become who you are today, please send it our way, or let us know, and we’ll contact you to get more information.

With the recent closing of the Lucille Ball Little Theatre of Jamestown’s production of The Odd Couple, artistic director Anne Eklund is currently assembling a team to produce the second Neil Simon comedy of the theatre’s 77th theatrical season. This will be the 20th Neil Simon play mounted on the LBLTJ stage. In celebration of this production, Jamestown Mayor Sam Teresi proclaimed Jan. 31 as Neil Simon Day in Jamestown. Simon is a favorite playwright of little theatres across the nation. With over thirty theatrical plays and as many movie scripts to his credit, Simon has earned Tony Awards, Oscar nominations and

Director Eklund is poised to present Plaza Suite which has proven to be both a Broadway favorite and a successful Hollywood fi lm. “The theatre originally produced Plaza Suite in 1971 and I am so glad to have the chance to give it an encore. It’s very funny, a real audience pleaser as are all of the Simon shows.” said Eklund. Plaza Suite is really three short plays, which share the setting of an elegant suite at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. The suite provides the setting where the characters can act out their individual stories. Just as was recently demonstrated in the A.R. Gurney play The Dining Room, which was presented at the Robert H. Jackson Center, the room, the setting,

becomes a character, a force that helps actors to bring life to the other characters that populate the play. Neil Simon is a master of characterization, he understands life and people and his stories, sometimes sad but humorously told, illuminate and entertain. “I’m very excited about our cast and the set is taking shape. We can’t wait to put these Simon characters out there to entertain our audience,” said Eklund. Plaza Suite, the 20th Neil Simon play to be produced on the LBLTJ stage, will celebrate opening night on March 21 and continue to play on March 22, 28 and 29 at 8 p.m. and on March 23 and 30 at 2 p.m. Call LBLTJ at 483-1095 for information regarding group rates and to make reservations.

trip students. Since these fees only cover about half the costs, support of local foundations is critical, and Audubon is most appreciative of the CRCF support. Audubon’s basic field trip is called a Discovery Walk. In small groups, children, guided by Audubon naturalists or trained volunteers, explore fields, forest, and ponds for about an hour and a half. What they do or discover depends on the sea-

son and the weather. Many groups like to schedule extra time to take a self-guided tour through the Nature Center building or to have a picnic lunch. Classes visit Audubon for a variety of reasons: as a fun outing, to tie specific field experiences into their science curriculum, to expose the children to free discovery as a jumping off point for further study of whatever piques their interest, and more.

Brooklyn Square Memories: The Search Is On Contributed Article readers of Joan CusiThe Lost Neighborhood

Because a good deal of interest in old Brooklyn Square was generated among

mano Lindquist’s second book, Brooklyn Square, the Lost Neighborhood, and Beyond (2013), she is on the lookout for more stories directly

related to that downtown business district of Jamestown that fell to urban renewal more than forty years ago. Inspired by this interest among her readership,

Lindquist is asking for articles for a new book, specifically about Brooklyn Square, from anyone with recollections of Brooklyn Square businesses--be they former or current

owners of those establishments, families or friends of those business owners who recall some particulars about the business, or patrons of the myriad stores and shops that made

Brooklyn Square their home. Articles about Brooklyn Square residences, such as the Gifford Building and the Rogers Building, would also be welcomed. Continued on page 21

SUNY Fredonia Business Club Honors Celebrate & Learn Cutting Crew Owners Cantora, Michalek From The Winter Olympics

Contributed Article SUNY Fredonia

On Thursday, March 6, the SUNY Fredonia Business Club presented the 37th Annual Business Persons of the Year Award to Rita Canfora and Debbie Michalak, owners of The Cutting Crew, located on Eagle Street in the village of Fredonia. An award banquet and ceremony was held in the Williams Center. For over three decades, the Business Club has been honoring outstanding members of the Dunkirk and Fredonia business community through the award. Recipients are chosen based on their community involvement, business ethics, innovations in business, concern for employees, and contribution to the growth of local business. Professor Linda Hall noted that Ms. Canfora and Ms. Michalak have readily demonstrated these

Keeping The Faith

Let’s look at this issue. There are many scriptures that talk about honoring God. For example, in Malachi 1:6, "A son honors his father, and a servant his master. Then if I am the Father, where is My honor? And if I Rev. Michael am the Master, where Lokietek is My respect?' says the Family Church Fredonia Lord of hosts to you….” fcfredonia.org In this scripture God is chastising the priests for presenting inferior Dear Pastor, My pastor meat offerings. The mentioned that we should priests “good enough” dress our best at church.

blessings given for us. According to one definition, honor requires “proof of faith” or a demonstration of our heart. In your question you mention that “God looks at the heart.” In 1 Samuel 16:7 God declared, “People judge (for a new king) by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart." But remember…David’s heart was humble before God and “humility goes before honor (Proverbs 18:12).” So, to respond to your question…it’s not about the specifics of how you dress but that you take the time to present your very best to God as a way to honor Him. We have a saying, “if you only have jeans…wear your best jeans!” If you can honestly say that your decision about how you dress for church comes from a pure, respectful, and humble heart…then rest assured that your actions are pleasing to God. Next week…we will continue on honor!

How do you cast down a thought? You cannot fight a thought with a thought. You must cast it down with words. Proverbs 18:21 says, "Death and life are in the POWER of the tongue; those that love it will eat the fruit thereof." The Bible says that the tongue has POWER over life and death. The way we live begins in our thoughts. When an evil thought comes we must cast it down with the words of our mouth in order in ensure the right kind of living. When a thought tries to exalt itself over the Knowledge of God I speak to that thought and say, "That thought is not obedient to Christ. I cast you down. I refuse to think that way." Now of course be sure to use discretion. Find a quiet private place to do this. People might think strange things if you are always talking to your thoughts around them!

creative, humorous ideas. Maybe you don’t like images that are over edited, but prefer the natural beauty of people without any photo-shopping. Keep in mind that some of their photos may have been based on another customer’s request, and don’t hesitate to ask them what their specialties are. • Make a list. The only way to get what you want from someone is to tell them what

that is. Make a list of different photo opportunities that you want and discuss them with your photographer. Weddings are an excellent time to get some family photos, so think about whether you want to take one huge family photo, or some with just your parents, grandparents, or you with your f lower girl or ring bearer. You may want to consider asking loved ones who are helping with expenses if there is anything they would like as well. Maybe a great aunt or friend of the family

Think about what it would mean to you to have photos of your bouquet, your shoes, or wedding jewelry. Are these things that you are going to want to remember on your 25 wedding anniversary? Add any details you would like included to your list, and discuss with your photographer what you have in mind. • Be reasonable. Although trained photographers can possess much natural talent, and a lot can be done with editing programs, don’t forget that they are not miracle workers. Discuss with them your expectations, but don’t set the standards so high that no one can reach them. Take into account how much time they might need, and ask them if there are any ways that you can help them to capture the photos that you desire.

spring daydreaming

By Dodi Kingsfield Contributing Writer

According to the calendar, spring is officially upon us, yet the single digit temperatures of the past few weeks are certainly no indication of the approaching season. Snow still covers the ground, trees and flowers remain dormant and hats and mittens stay within arm’s reach in case of lingering winter days. If it weren’t for the changing of the clocks, one would think that the arrival of spring was a cruel April fool’s joke that only the gullible believe. Yet spring has arrived, in all her lion and lamb glory which leaves daydreaming about spring the only option to pass the time until the temperatures catch up with the calendar. The twenty first of March marks the first day of spring, but for folks in this area, it’s designated as the opening day of mud season, that transition time between winter and spring that we love to hate so well. Mud grows in the driveways, on walkways, and around parked cars. It comes in to the house on shoes, pets and anything that comes in contact with the ground. There is mud on the carpet, the porches, the hallway and the garage. Until

State Champions Chautauqua Lake Lady Thunderbirds Claim Class C Championship

All season long the Chautauqua Lake Lady Thunderbirds basketball team has found little resistance on the court. With only one loss — which seems like a lifetime ago now — and riding a 19-game winning streak entering the Final Four, the girls had all the confidence in the world. As it turned out, there wasn’t a team in New York State that could stand up to the Lady Thunderbirds’ combination of size and speed as Chautauqua Lake captured the school’s first ever state championship. The title was clinched with a 47-36 win in the championship game over Hoosic Valley of Section 2, Sunday at Hudson Valley Community College. Chautauqua Lake’s dynamic duo of forwards — Jenna Einink and Ashton Albanesius — was borderline unstoppable in that game with each of the juniors recording a double-double. Einink was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player with 11 points and 15 rebounds. Albanesius actually had better stats with 16 points and 16 boards in being named to the AllTournament team. Perhaps Einink’s biggest

contribution came in the game’s opening minutes. Hoosic Valley’s Laura McGreevey hit a pair of three-pointers that gave the Lady Indians a 6-0 lead in the blink of an eye. But Einink fought hard for a pair of baskets inside that cut that lead to two points and gave the Lady Thunderbirds the confidence that they could keep pace with Hoosic Valley. Chances are pretty good that when you get a combined 27 points and 31 rebounds from your forwards, your odds of winning go up dramatically.

Of course, it wasn’t simply a two-player effort for Chautauqua Lake. Senior Ashley Moulton ended her high school basketball career in stellar fashion, pouring in eight points and grabbing five rebounds on her way to winning the Sportsmanship Award. The Lady Thunderbirds also received great play from the guard combination of Tara Hunt and Courtney Hewes. While the pair only combined for nine points, they were responsible for guiding an effective and efficient offense while also playing lockdown defense.

Temper Expectations For Spikes By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

Hunt is Chautauqua Lake’s only other senior. Going out a state champion will be a memory Hunt and Moulton will cherish forever. In the semifinal game on Saturday, the Lady Thunderbirds pounded Haldane in all facets of the game and ended with a convincing 61-39 win to earn the trip to the finals. It was the guard combo of Hewes and Hunt that set the pace in this one as Albanesius and Einink both found themselves in foul trouble.

Brandon Spikes played for the mighty New England Patriots four seasons. He’s a name that Buffalo Bills fans came to know and hate. So it goes without saying that Bills fans were probably ecstatic when Spikes signed a one-year deal (worth $3.25 million) with Buffalo last week. Linebacker has long been a position of weakness for the Bills and theoretically Spikes helps shore up that position. But before we go and get carried away thinking we just signed a player of Takeo Spikes’ level, let’s just go ahead and temper our expectations and look at some of the facts.

dunkirk Rec department offers Plenty of options By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

Hockey. Softball. Basketball. Soccer. Football. No matter what your sport of choice is, chances are pretty good that the City Of Dunkirk Recreational Department now offers an option for you. “I believe this is the first time the city has had a basketball league in about 10 years,” Dunkirk’s Recreation Program Coordinator Tim Gornikiewicz said. The basketball league, in its fi rst year of existence, has quickly become immensely popular. Games are played Saturday mornings at Dunkirk High School as well as Monday and Tuesday nights at Dunkirk Middle School. “Mayor Dolce and (Dunkirk superintendent) Gerry Cerne worked out the details for using the facilities,” Gornikiewicz explained. “We use their football field for flag football, too. The school has been great to work with. We have a good relationship with them. It works out nice.” It’s a good thing the league has two reliable places to play games because in only its first year, there are over 200 players making up 18 teams — 12 in the “A League” and six in the “B League”. Most of the teams are from Dunkirk, but there

Plans for expansion include a 35-andolder basketball league as well as increasing the options for youth activities. “I’d love to get the Punt, Pass and Kick back here,” Gornikiewicz noted. “I’ve started thinking about flag football for kids, too.

COMMENTARy, CONTINUED FROM PAgE 24 First off, New England isn’t exactly in a habit of letting its best players walk out the door. Sure, they lost wide receiver Wes Welker last offseason, but that was a fairly unique case that was years in the making. This was simply a case of the Patriots not really caring to retain a player that hasn’t lived up to his lofty draft status coming out of Florida. Truthfully, I’m hesitant to call Spikes even a good player, let alone a great one. He plays middle linebacker, a position that should rack up tackles if nothing else, yet he’s never had more than 92 tackles in any single season. Compare that with say, Kiko Alonso — the Bills’ middle linebacker last season, who tallied an impressive 159 tackles from the same position in just his rookie campaign. Okay, so what else does Spikes bring to the table? He certainly doesn’t offer any threat of rushing the passer. In four seasons, Spikes has amassed but one sack. One. Fifty-one games and one sack. If you push a running quarterback out of bounds before he gets to the line of scrimmage you get credited for a sack. If you’re the first player to touch a quarterback that slipped or botched a snap or had his center step on his foot, you get credited for a sack. Yet Spikes has one. So he’s not a passrush specialist. No

give quarterback E.J. Manuel an elite target to help him develop. It would almost certainly open up running lanes for C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson. It would fi nally give the Bills a guy that’s a threat to take it to the house every time he touches the ball (Spiller was that guy briefly, but seemed to regress last season). With other receivers like Eric Decker and Hakeem Nicks already signed on with other teams, the help will have to come from the draft.

The Fredonia State baseball team will opened its season on Thursday with a double header vs. Salve Regina in Ft. Myers Florida. The Devils will play a total of 13 games in the Sunshine State, including three conference tilts vs. SUNYAC rival Plattsburgh. "We have a very challenging schedule this season," said head coach Matt Palisin. "Our Florida schedule should do a great job preparing us for conference play. We see our trip as having 13 wins on the table. It's up to us to go out and get them." Salve Regina was 29-12 a year ago. Other opponents include Haverford (27-11 in 2013), No. 20 ranked Johns Hopkins (37-10, NCAA Regional), Knox (won a school-record 22 games last year), McDaniel (22-16) and

New Coach Brings Different Feel To Fredonia State Softball Contributed Article FSU Sports Information Dept.

After guiding New Paltz to a SUNYAC Tournament appearance last season, Tony Ciccarello looks to get Fredonia State softball on a similar track. The Blue Devils failed to advance to the postseason the past two seasons and are picked for seventh place in the 2014 SUNYAC Softball Poll released Wednesday. They open their season March 16 at the Dot Richardson Spring Games in Clermont, Fla. Ciccarello inherited a similar situation last year at New Paltz. The Hawks were coming off two straight nonplayoff seasons and were picked for seventh in the SUNYAC preseason poll. Yet following a trip to Florida, they ran off a string of eight straight conference wins. The Hawks eventually finished tied for fourth place (11-7 SUNYAC, 20-19 overall) to earn a spot in the six-team SUNYAC bracket. It was the 11th time Ciccarello had taken a team to SUNYACs -the previous 10 coming at Geneseo, where he coached from 2002 to 2012. He has a lifetime coaching record of 278-193.

"I coach in May," he told the Blue Devils at their first official team meeting in late January. It was both a statement of fact and a cryptic challenge for his new team. To emphasize his point, Ciccarello hashtags all his tweets #ANewBeginning. So far, the Blue Devils have embraced the challenge and the fresh ideas. "They're definitely focused, they're buying in," he said after the team had been practicing for several weeks. "They're learning a lot of new techniques, new things. They've been very attentive." Ciccarello has inherited a relataively young roster. It is comprised of one four-year player, pitcher Alyssa Brognano (New Paltz, N.Y.), who was the 2011 SUNYAC Rookie of the Year. She's also the only current Blue

Devil to have appeared in a SUNYAC playoff game -- a 2-1 win in 10 innings over Ciccarello's Geneseo team in 2011. Brognano was named to the all-tournament team that year. She will share time in the circle with junior transfer Kelsey Gannett (Endwell, N.Y.), who spent the past two seasons pitching for Broome County Community College. Gannett averaged 9.42 strikeouts per game with a 1.56 earned run average last season at Broome. The top position player is sophomore infielder Alyssa Morgan (Homer, N.Y.), who batted .421 last year -- best among all SUNYAC freshmen and third highest overall in the conference batting race. It was also the third best single-season batting average in Fredonia State history. Morgan

also led the Blue Devils with 23 RBI, and a .486 on-base percentage and earned several post-season honors -All SUNYAC Second Team, National Fastpitch Coaches Association Northeast Region Third Team, and Fredonia State Female Rookie of the Year, an award which covers all sports. "She's just a good athlete," Ciccarello said of Morgan, who'll likely move from second base -- where she started last season -- to shortstop. "She can really smack the ball." There are three other returning starters, all juniors: first baseman Cherise Gunnell (Falconer, N.Y.), catcher Jessica Lauck (Buffalo, N.Y.), and left fielder Kate Nicholson (Heuvelton, N.Y.). All three are expected to be in the starting lineup when the 2014 season opens. Gunnell batted

.299 with a team-high five homers last season while Lauck batted .237 despite losing half a season due to injury. Nicholson batted .256 in her first extended collegiate playing time. Lauck will be spelled behind the plate by freshman Maddy Stavish (Olean, N.Y.). Three other newcomers have earned starting spots: sophomore Lindsey Forness (Allegany, N.Y.) at third base, and freshmen Erin Mushtare (Oneonta, N.Y.) and Alyssa DiBiase (Webster, N.Y.) in center field and right field, respectively. Second base is still up for grabs between sophomores Kim Lotocki (Hamburg, N.Y.) and Megan Medina (Hamburg, N.Y.), while sophomore Madeline Medina (Hamburg, N.Y.) is pushing for time at first base. Lotocki and the Medinas were spot starters as

freshmen. The outfield extras consist of junior Kaitlyn Crossan (Dunkirk, N.Y.), who was used as a pinch-hitter last season, and two newcomers: junior Kristiana Pavone (Olean, N.Y.) and sophomore Cheyanne France (Randolph, N.Y.). Another sophomore, Izzy Simon (Macedon, N.Y.), will also back-up as a catcher and outfielder. She made 19 starts last year, mostly after Lauck was sidelined by injury. Graduation claimed the left side of the infield, two of the three starting outfielders, and two of three pitchers -- shortstop Tina Schwartzmeyer, third baseman Jamie Atkins, center fielder Katie Bartkowiak, right fielder Anne Wasik, and pitchers Danielle Shelp and Raela Wiley-Delp. A threetime all-conference player, Bartkowiak is the all-time leader in a multitude of offensive categories. She and the five others were all four-year players. The Blue Devils' new beginning of actual competition begins 1 p.m. Sunday vs. Trinity (Conn.) at the National Training Center, the first of 10 games in Florida. Live stats will be available on this website.

Spikes Eager For Fresh Start In Buffalo By Mark Ludwiczak on a conference call Associated Press

After a falling out with the New England Patriots, linebacker Brandon Spikes is embracing his fresh start with the Buffalo Bills. Spikes joined the Bills late Friday night on a one-year contract. The Bills have been active in free agency thus far, signing six free agents. The middle linebacker is easily Buffalo's most intriguing addition. The 26-year-old Spikes is an aggressive, hardhitting defender. A second-round pick of the Patriots in 2010, Spikes started 39 of 53 games in New England, with 286 tackles and five forced fumbles. He was third on the Patriots in tackles in 2013 with 86. ''I was excited the whole time to get going with a new start in a new beginning in a new place,'' Spikes said

Monday. ''I feel like it's going to be fun and I'm down for a challenge. I want to help change the culture there.'' Spikes is known for the physical nature of his play. ''All the old-school, throwback 'backers, I just molded my game after them and it just stuck with me this whole time,'' Spikes said. ''I wouldn't call it intimidating, I'm just playing and going hard and relentless and play every play like it's your last.'' The addition of Spikes is one of many moves the Bills hope will fix their porous run defense. With Spikes taking over middle linebacker duties, the Bills plan on moving young standout Kiko Alonso to the weak side after spending his rookie season in the middle. The Bills also signed former New York Giants line-

Johnson, now Buffalo's defensive line coach. Johnson made the move from New England in January and Spikes said his presence was one of the reasons he decided to come to Buffalo. ''A great coach, a great inspiration to the game,'' Spikes said. ''He loves the game and he's definitely what I want to be down the road; he's a legendary ball player and coach.'' Recently signed linebacker Brandon Spikes is embracing his fresh start with the Buffalo Bills.

I'm happy now and I'm ready to get to work and I'm just ready to help.'' Spikes is hoping to follow in the footsteps of his cousin, Takeo Spikes. Takeo Spikes was a standout linebacker with the Bills from 2003-06. After wearing number 55 in New England, Spikes is returning to the number 51, which he wore earlier in his career, in honor of his cousin. ''He inspired me to be great,'' Spikes said. ''He inspired me to have a dream and chase it. ... Watching him in Buffalo growing up inspired me to wear the number 51 ... he's just somebody I look to be like.''

Pitchers Having Painful Spring By Ben Walker Associated Press

Jarrod Parker, Kris Medlen and Luke Hochevar are out for the season, Patrick Corbin and Brandon Beachy might join them in the operating room. All over spring training, there's been an outbreak of wrecked elbows and pained pitchers. Next stop, those dreaded words: Tommy John surgery. "It doesn't surprise me at all," Tommy John

himself said Tuesday. "Tommy John surgery will grow exponentially in the next 50 years." "I really think there will come a day when if you have 12 pitchers on your staff, 10 will have had Tommy John surgery," the 70-year-old lefty told The Associated Press from his home in Watertown, N.Y. Still, this recent wave makes Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell wince. "It grabs all of our attention," he said before

his World Series champions played the New York Yankees. "There's a rash of it going on right now." "Regardless of who they play for, it's a sad day when you read about a guy that's having the surgery," he said. "You empathize with the guys going down. There's a long road ahead of them." As to why so many sudden cases, Farrell isn't sure. "It makes you scratch your head," the former

big league pitcher said. "I don't have an explanation." Stars Stephen Strasburg, Adam Wainwright, Tim Hudson, John Lackey and Joe Nathan are among the dozens of pitchers who have come back strong from the ligament transplant procedure. Young Mets ace Matt Harvey, who threw the first pitch at last summer's All-Star game, had the surgery in October. He's working out in camp and hopes

to pitch this year. "I think after watching what happened to a couple guys on the Braves, everybody's always going to so cautious about the recovery, but as a competitor we're always going to want to get back on the field," he said Tuesday. One trend Farrell has detected: "What's happening more is guys going for a second one," he said. The NL East champion Braves took a double hit with injuries to

Medlen and Beachy, both of whom previously had Tommy John surgery. The AL West champion Athletics once again lost Parker to the operation. He was scheduled to start on opening day. Teammate A.J. Griffin might be more fortunate — his sore elbow might heal on its own. Corbin had been set to throw the first pitch of the 2014 regular season. Continued on pg 34

Peaking Spartans Popular Pick To Win NCAA Tourney

By Larry Lage

There are people around here that pronounced us dead a week ago. All of a sudden we went from the ugly duckling to the prom queen. - Michigan State coach Tom Izzo

AP Sports Writer

Michigan State's up-and-down team might be peaking at just the right time. The Spartans started the season ranked second and rose to No. 1 for three weeks. They tumbled toward the bottom of the Top 25 before bouncing back with an impressive three-win stretch to earn the Big Ten tournament championship. ''There are people around here that pronounced us dead a week ago,'' coach Tom Izzo said. ''All of a sudden we went from the ugly duckling to the prom queen.'' Despite being a fourth-seeded team in the NCAA tournament and ranked No. 11 in the country, some oddsmakers have made the Spartans a 9-2 pick to win the national title, behind only top-seeded Florida. Just a week ago, Michigan State was slumping into the conference tournament and searching for chemistry it lost during an injury- and illnessstunted season. Izzo's goals last weekend in Indianapolis were for his players to get much-needed time together in at least two games, cut down on turnovers, improve on defense and to get their ''swagger'' back. ''I'd say in those three areas, we hit a home run. We did do those three things,'' he said. ''Now, the goal will be: Can we consistently do them and keep building on it and getting better? As much gratification as I saw in the weekend, there's still a lot of work to be done, trust me, as far as where we are and where we need to be.'' The Spartans open their 17th straight NCAA tournament on Thursday against 13th-seeded Delaware in Spokane, Wash. If Michigan State avoids an upset, history suggests it will have success on Saturday in the round of 32 against Cincinnati or Harvard. Izzo

is 18-3 in the second game of an NCAA tournament site, consistently showing he can get his teams ready to play with only one day to prepare. A little more than 24 hours after beating rival Michigan in the tournament final Sunday afternoon,

Izzo put his players on a plane following a brief practice Monday. He acknowledged wanting to help the team get adjusted to the time change, and hinted at another reason to leave three days before playing Delaware.

The coach with one national championship and six Final Four appearances disdains social media, especially Twitter, because it gives largely anonymous critics direct access to his players. Izzo also doesn't like how people can virtually pat his players on their back. He has warned his players about getting distracted by Twitter, and wished they'd leave their handheld devices in East Lansing. ''I'd be checking that phone in at the local bank and put it back somewhere where it's locked up because I think we are going to have to deal with those things,'' Izzo said. ''I'm ecstatic that people think we're going to be good, but they thought that at the beginning of the year.'' The Spartans are playing closer to their potential because their deep, talented and experienced team is together after being broken up for much of the year due to a string of health-related setbacks. Seniors Adreian Payne and Keith Appling will be very motivated to win at least four games. The duo doesn't want to be the first players in Izzo's program to stay four years and fail to make it to the Final Four. While Izzo insisted he's not talking about that fact, Payne said it's one of his daily thoughts. ''I think and pray about that every day,'' Payne said last week. ''It's on my mind when we practice. I know I haven't made it to one yet, and this is my last chance.''

Sabres’ Losing Streak Hits Seven With 3-1 Loss

Contributed Article Associated Press

Some expected Mike Cammalleri would be another team at this point, helping a playoff contender down the stretch. Cammalleri stuck around in Calgary after the trade deadline, and he's playing as well as he has all season. Cammalleri's 20th goal midway through the third period helped the Flames defeat the Buffalo Sabres 3-1 on Tuesday night. ''I thought a few weeks ago, he was shooting as well as he is now, but it just seemed the puck would find a pad or find a post or miss the net,'' Flames coach Bob Hartley said. ''Right now, Cammy's on fire.'' Cammalleri has been on a roll in March with seven goals in his past nine games. That came after a stretch leading up

the Saddledome. ''It's fun to play well at home. We love our fan support,'' Cammalleri said. ''In the first period, we didn't really have the bite to our game that we would have liked to, but I'm proud of the group to get it going again and playing the last 40 the way we wanted to.'' Drew Stafford scored for Buffalo. The lastplace Sabres, who have dropped seven games in a row, entered the night 11 points back of 29th-place Edmonton, which beat Nashville.

34 nAtionAL sPoRts PITCHERS HAVINg PAINFUL SPRINg, CONTINUED FROM Pg 31 The 24-year-old lefty was ready to start for Arizona in Australia this Saturday against the Dodgers. Instead, the All-Star felt "a small little shock" in his arm during an exhibition outing. Corbin later became the latest player to visit the busy doctor's office of prominent orthopedic surgeon James Andrews. "This is all new to me," Corbin said. "I've never

been hurt before, so I'm just trying to get through it." Hochevar, a reliable reliever for the Royals, felt a twinge on his next-to-last pitch in a game two weeks ago. An MRI revealed a major tear of the ulnar collateral ligament. The 30-year-old Hochevar missed almost three months in 2010 because of a sprained elbow.

"I knew this day was coming," he said. "After the first time I hurt it, I knew it was coming. I'm extremely thankful it held up for four years." Not so lucky was Padres pitcher Cory Luebke. He recently had his second reconstructive surgery on his left elbow, having missed the entire 2013 season while rehabilitating from his first operation.

SAbRES DROP ANOTHER, CONTINUED FROM Pg 33 ''It's just so disheartening is what it is when you have 90 percent of the guys going and a few that are not.'' The Flames got an insurance goal from Byron at 13:27 of the third, making it 3-1 on Calgary's league-leading 12th short-handed goal of the season.

After a lackluster first period in which the Flames fell behind 1-0, they came out with more energy in the second period and took the play to Buffalo. However, Lieuwen came up big - making a blocker save off Backlund, a glove grab off Cammalleri, and an-

other big stop on Byron on a power play. The Flames tied it with 1:02 left in the second on Colborne's eighth goal of the season. Lieuwen fi nished with 23 saves in losing his first decision. Joni Ortio had 13 stops to even his record at 4-4-0.

CHAUTAUQUA STAR FRIDAY, MARCH 21, 2014

Everyday players aren't immune from this type of injury, either. Minnesota power-hitting prospect Miguel Sano found out this spring training that he'll need the surgery, a setback for the 20-year-old third baseman. Texas outfielder Shin-Soo Choo had it several years ago. To the pitcher whose name is synonymous with the career-saving

surgery, more players will follow his path. John earned 288 victories from 1963-89 — after Dr. Frank Jobe performed the pioneering surgery on him in 1974, John won 164 times and never missed a start because of elbow trouble before retiring at age 46. John thinks too many pitchers are putting too much stress on their arms at an early age,

well before they ever become pros. He also believes several of the pitchers who are getting hurt this spring had pre-existing conditions. "I'm not a doctor, but the way I deduce it, some of these guys had something wrong last year," he said. "It just doesn't make sense that your arm or elbow just would disintegrate in three weeks."

''Extremely frustrating,'' Stafford said. ''We've been lacking offense. I've felt as though, for the most part, we've gotten stellar goaltending and tonight we cleaned up our defensive game for the most part, especially in the neutral zone. It was one of our better efforts.''

Notes: Calgary C Matt Stajan returned to the Flames' lineup. He was away from the club for 13 days and missed eight games after the death of his son Emerson after he was born two weeks ago. ... Not dressed for Calgary was rookie Kenny Agostino, who signed on Monday after Yale's NCAA season

came to an end. Hartley said he would make his NHL debut Friday against Nashville. ... Buffalo C Torrey Mitchell (lower body) returned after missing six games. ... Buffalo led after the ďŹ rst period for only the 11th time, which is lowest in the league. They are 4-6-1.

Edwards Leads Ford Sweep At Rain-Soaked Bristol By Jenna Fryer AP Auto Racing Writer

If two rain delays totaling more than five hours weren't enough, the water-logged race at Bristol Motor Speedway had a battery fly out of a car and spread a toilet paper-looking substance all over the track. And that wasn't even the strangest occurrence Sunday. Moments before Carl Edwards closed in on what should have been the white flag lap, the caution lights were accidentally turned on from the flag stand. As NASCAR tried to figure out what was going on, the sky opened up and prevented the race from resuming. Edwards was awarded the win under caution - a victory he was headed to before the mishap - and celebrated his third career win at Bristol with his trademark backflip on the slick concrete. ''Oh, man, I thought, 'This is stupid. I shouldn't do this ... It's awfully glossy. It might be slick,''' he said. ''I didn't want to stick it perfectly and have my feet go that way and break my arm on the concrete. That would have been terrible. I was actually really nervous about that.'' NASCAR vice president of competition Robin Pemberton said a person in the flag stand leaned on the manual override switch and that turned on the caution lights. Six seconds after the lights were turned on, the flag man waved the yellow flag. Pemberton said that the flag man can wave the caution flag without a call from series officials in the tower if they see a proper reason. ''We were scanning cars and spotters, and there's some of us in the tower that only heard it after the teams were talking about it because we were looking at other things around the racetrack,'' Pemberton said. Said Edwards: ''No harm, no foul, let's act like it just didn't happen.'' The victory makes Edwards the fourth winner in four races this season and, under NASCAR's new rules, is supposed to get him into the

He restarted second behind Carl Edwards with 70 laps to go and had one solid chance to take the lead. If he'd gotten past Edwards, he just might have grabbed his first career victory. ''These races are so hard to win, and it was a great day for us,'' he said.

ALERT - NO-FAULT BENEFITS UNDER ATTACK

• If you have been injured in an auto accident, New York State Law requires the insurance carrier for the vehicle you were in to cover your related medical expenses and any lost wages (Insurance Law Section 5103).

• Recently, many insurance carriers are attempting to avoid this legal duty by paying biased doctors, often from outside the area, to support them in cutting off these important benefits.

CAMPBELL & SHELTON LLP has taken the following steps to protect our clients: • We will send an investigator to any suspicious exams and videotape the physician. • We will sue any insurance carrier who denies our clients their benefits without a valid basis (we recently obtained a judgment against Allstate for a client’s unpaid benefits, costs and interest). For these and many other reasons, if you are injured in an automobile accident you need experienced and capable legal representation as soon as possible.
