Opened in 1832, the Chautauqua County Poor Farm in Dewittville marked the county’s first social program for individuals who were indigent, disabled, elderly or those who did not have the family, friends or other support mechanisms to help them. Despite being referred to in county records as the “Alms House and Lunatic Asylum,” and residents as “inmates,” the property offered the first safety net for those unable to care for themselves, and was run fairly well, according to County Historian Michelle Henry. It even survived the massive influx of immigrants that found themselves there, arriving via the New York and Erie Railroad, which opened in 1851. Starting out as a real vegetable and livestock farm, the facility

time in late April. NRG already mothballed two of the Dunkirk plant’s biggest generating units last year, with the closure of the third unit expected to happen by the end of May. National Grid recently completed a thorough review that found it would need to make approximately $70 million in improvements to its transmission lines and various pieces of associated equipment to compensate for the loss of the Dunkirk plant. While some are skeptical, the thought process by various elected officials in the region are to remain optimistic that an alternative outcome for the power plant can be found to keep local residents employed at a facility that at one time had thousands of employees but will soon have less than six dozen working there. “The plan to convert the Dunkirk plant to a natural gas-powered plant to replace the coal burning units is what we hope the governor will support,” says Daly. “This could make our region a leader in the clean energy industry. The price of gas is so low now the way to go is to build a natural gas electric generation plant. We will wait and see how this is received in Albany, but we hope the governor chooses what we believe to be the best solution that will bring positive results economically and environmentally.”

Pets of the Week

This week we are featuring “Mouse” and “Joe.” Mouse is a wonderful five-year-old kitty that is ready to move into his forever home. He is super sweet and friendly, likes to play and can be a great lap cat. He would do great in any home. Joe is a two-year-old hound mix. As you can tell from his picture, he is praying that he fi nds the perfect family soon. He is full of life and loves to go for walks and play. He could use a little training to bring out the best in him. If either of these wonderful pets sounds like the one for you, stop by the Strunk Road Adoption Center and meet them. They are two furry bundles of love just waiting for their second chance for a great life.

lillian dickson park playground project receives lead Business donations Contributed Article Andrew Dickson

Hartley Buick and Jamestown Awning are the first business contributors to the Lillian Dickson Park fundraising campaign. A fundraising goal of $37,500 has been set by the volunteers and neighbors of the park to purchase preschool playground equipment and install it by September 2013. Fundraising efforts for the Lillian Dickson Park (“LDP”) are in full swing. Mailings to area businesses have been sent. Grant requests are being prepared. An additional mailing to residents in the vicinity of LDP is planned and fundraising activities are being planned for the spring and summer. “We’ve begun turning this park into a symbol of community pride and rejuvenation,” said David Reinhart, LDP Chairman and neighbor. “We have our work cut out for us in 2013, but a great group of volunteers has come forward to make this project happen.” The LDP volunteers and neighbors have made significant strides last year to bring attention to the need for park improvements. During the “Hands On Jamestown” event in May, the volunteers painted the pavilion, removed brush and fallen debris, installed new fall zone materials under the existing equipment and planted flowers by the park sign.

games and kids activities were organized during the summer with the help of the Eastside YMCA. A Neighborhood Watch was established and nearly 200 neighbors turned out on National Night Out to show their support. Fundraising activities have generated $1,600 to date. Impetus for the park improvements came from Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work, and Play (“CHP”), a project funded by the New York State Department of Health and administered by the Chautauqua County Health Network. CHP is creating policy, systems, and

Youth Symphony Heads to pittsburgh, closing Fund drive Contributed Article CRYS

On Saturday, March 16, students of the three Chautauqua Regional Youth Symphony (CRYS) orchestras had the rare experience of a pre-concert visit with members of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. Then the young people and their chaperones took their seats in the beautiful 2,676-seat Heinz Hall and heard the Orchestra accompany a screening of The Wizard of Oz. Following the concert, everyone enjoyed dinner at Bucca di Beppo in Pittsburgh’s Station Square. On their trip back to Jamestown the students talked of the memories they made that will last a lifetime. “It was a truly amazing day,” noted CRYS board member and trip organizer Anne Dolce. “This is the first CRYS has arranged an outing like this, but it was such a good experience that I know we will want to plan similar trips in the future!” CRYS has three orchestras: Prelude Strings for beginning string players, Young Artists Orchestra for intermediate musicians, and the Youth Symphony for highly talented and motivated musicians ages 13 through college. Under the leader-

ship of music director and conductor Bryan Eckenrode, they have learning opportunities that are not available anywhere else in the Chautauqua area, including an intense weekend workshop at Chautauqua Institution. The Chautauqua Regional Youth Symphony is in the fi nal stages of its Annual Fund Drive. Included in the ways CRYS shows appreciation for its contributors are by recognition on its website and in printed concert programs and through complimentary admissions to the Spring Gala Concerts on Sunday, May 5, 2013, in the Reg Lenna Civic Center. CRYS receives critical support from foundations and other organizations in the community. While parents, board members and students participate in fund raising events, donations from individuals and local businesses are essential to CRYS’s survival. Board members were especially appreciative of a significant individual contribution this season from Jon and Aubin Gren. Tax-deductible donations to the Chautauqua Regional Youth Symphony can be mailed to Post Office Box 3454, Jamestown, NY 14702.

environmental changes in the community to increase access to healthy foods and opportunities for physical activity. “Creating Healthy Places is working with schools, municipalities, not-for-profits, congregations and community groups to achieve sustainable change that will help our families eat well and be more active,” said Janet Forbes, CHP Project Coordinator. “The Lillian Dickson Park project was a perfect opportunity to engage the neighborhood and bring together diverse partners for positive change.”

Located on Falconer St. between Sturges and Bowen, the Park is the former site of School #10 and is named in honor of the school’s first principal, Lillian Dickson, who served from 1893 until 1933. Tax-deductible contributions to the LDP project can be made to the Lillian Dickson Park Non-Endowed Fund at the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation, 418 Spring St., Jamestown NY 14701 or on line at For more information about the Lillian Dickson Park Project, contact David Reinhart at 450-2688.

try. “Look for a beauty school that positions graduates with the latest protocols, marketing, financial literacy and goal-setting skills necessary to be leaders,” says Lynch, whose elevated academic approach has redefined academia for modern beauty students. Bellus Academy has received 13 of the industry’s top awards since 2008 for educational excellence. If you’re looking to break into the beauty industry, here are some career tips to consider: • It takes more than technical training to be successful. Take advantage

of courses your program offers that develop business, personal and marketing skills • Leave your program with real world experience. Schools such as Bellus partner with top salons and spas to place students in elite externships or work with industry icons at special events. This is an opportunity to network and gain insight into the professional industry. • Get a great return on your educational investment by opting for a school with career services. For example, Bellus Academy offers résumé assistance and job interview preparation to students and alumni

and updates its job listings weekly. The school also prepares students to pass exams for licensure or international certification. • Financing your training doesn’t have to break the bank. Like degree programs in medicine or law, there are opportunities like scholarships through the “Beauty Changes Lives” program and students can meet with financial aid professionals to review what aid they qualify for. • A beauty career is flexible and travels well. Consider gaining an international certificate to take your skills abroad. More information about

the advantages of a beauty education can be found at “With traditional career paths losing some of their luster during the downturn, beauty has become especially attractive, offering flexibility and a human connection,” says Steve Reiss, Vice President of Modern Salon Media. If beauty is your passion, you’re in luck. The industry attracts caring, entrepreneurial individuals with a mission to make a difference through beauty and wellness. Even in uncertain economic times, it’s an industry that’s proven to thrive and grow.

RELIGION SECTION Keeping the Faith

Rev. Michael Lokietek Family Church Fredonia

Rev. Tim Stahlman Family Church Jamestown

Dear Pastor, why is the resurrection of Jesus so important? With the celebration of Easter just around the corner, your question is very timely. While most people spend great effort to honor the birth of Jesus Christ, it is the Resurrection of Jesus Christ that is truly the most important event for all of mankind. Without the Resurrection, there would be no Christianity! Without the Resurrection, all creation would be forever separated from God’s presence and could not enter into Heaven. The Bible says that when man

disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden, the whole world became subject to sin (Romans 5:12). The Bible tells us that sin disqualifies us from entering into God presence (Romans 3:23). God, not willing to loose the relationship with His beloved creation, promised He would send a Redeemer to resolve the problem of sin (Genesis 3:15). This would allow for reuniting with His creation. If you examine the Bible, you’ll see that God promises to answer the need for the justification (to clear the debt) of mankind’s sinful state from the creation, throughout the miraculous conception of the Lord Jesus Christ. The birth of the

Jesus was the initiation of God’s promise. Jesus lived a sinless life to qualify as the perfect sacrifice in God’s plan. Amazingly, when Jesus hung on the cross and His sinless blood poured out (Hebrews 9:14), He took upon Himself the penalty for every sin of mankind (2 Corinthians 5:17-21). This included every sin from man’s first sin in the Garden of Eden to the last sin that will ever be committed just before the end of the world. At His death, Jesus suffered the full judgment of the world’s sins in our place (Matthew 12:40, Psalm 22). Even with His suffering and death,

the plan for our redemption had not yet been fulfilled. It was only when Jesus Christ rose from the dead in order to reveal the truth of God’s power that divine justice was served and the Lord’s sacrifice met the conditions for the eternal redemption of mankind. The Resurrection is the fulfillment of God’s promise for redemption. It restores the opportunity of reunion with the Father, gives us power over sin (Romans 8:2), and allows for an eternal, everlasting life in His presence (1 John 2:25). It is for this reason that Easter should be celebrated as the greatest single event in history.

The Weekly Word Faith by Value When you were held captive by sin and death, a ransom was necessary to purchase your freedom. The devil demanded a price so high that he thought Heaven would never pay it. Satan was only willing to let you go in exchange for the murder of the Son of God. The devil was blinded by his hatred for Jesus. While the devil demanded Jesus’ death in hate, God willingly gave Him in love. Love never fails. The human body is worth less than five dollars when considering its value in carbon, salt, and other minerals. The human spirit was worth the Blood of the Son of God. The Father is sitting upon a throne of light. His streets are made of divinely polished pure

gold. The walls of His city are layered gemstones. God owns all the gold and silver on earth. The oil fields, titanium, and platinum are all His. God’s servants, the angels, are dressed in gowns that look like the brilliance of shimmering diamonds. The galaxies could have been His currency. He could have placed all this upon a scale, added up the value, and offered it for your ransom. That would have been love but it wouldn’t have been ultimate love. For if there had been something that God wouldn’t give, the world would have had reason to doubt His love. In our modern society, currency should be backed by something of worth for it to be valuable. The American dollar used to be

backed by gold. In times past, each dollar you had represented that much gold in the National Treasury. But now people are losing faith in the dollar. Why? Because it has lost it’s gold backing. In a like manner, the faith of Christians is failing because they have forgotten their backing. Christians are on the Jesus standard: You have been valued with His value. His worthiness is your worthiness. If Christ is worth it then you are worth it. Faith believes your God given value. Romans 8:32 says, “He that spared not His own Son but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him freely give us ALL THINGS.” Fact: The only good thing that God won’t provide for you is something worth

more than the Blood of Jesus. There isn’t anything more valuable than that! When you realize this, faith won’t be something you try; it will be something that you have. If you can believe that God would give it to Jesus then you can believe that God will give it to you. God set the standard when He gave Christ. Is the healing of your body greater than Christ’s Blood? Is the financial help you seek greater than God’s Son? Is the restoration of your marriage bigger than the Gift of Jesus? This is how God wants us to approach Him. He wants us to compare all our necessities to the cross. Will your need swallow God’s love or will God’s love devour your needs? My need is never greater than His love.

by increased regulatory oversight that is driving up administrative costs while stretching thin the ability of direct support workers to provide safe, quality care to a class of people who are among the most vulnerable in society. It is because people with developmental disabilities are so vulnerable that careful regulatory oversight is necessary. But voluntary providers lament that the Cuomo administration has overburdened them with excessively stringent regulations. They say it has gotten to the point that every incident resulting in a bump or a bruise – as well as incidents in which no harm occurred – requires an extensive investigation to be conducted by the provider. This results in massive amounts of time and staff to investigate incidents, fi ll out paperwork and review an investigation’s fi ndings. With a high level of regulatory oversight, it is not surprising then that costs associated with quality assurance eat up a large portion of an agency’s administrative costs. A study of the expenses at seven providers in Western New York showed that they

St. James Family Worship theater presents “a living last Supper” Contributed Article Jim Alexander

Saint James Church choir with the Family Worship Theatre will transform into the early church as it recreates Leonardo Di Vinci’s classic painting of the “Last Supper.” This liturgical musical drama will take place at St. James Church at 27 Allen Street in Jamestown on Palm Sunday, March 24 at 4 p.m., and on Good Friday, March 29 at 7 p.m. This theatrical production was written by Ruth Elaine Schram, and the choir is directed by Cathy Gagliano. The parishioners that make up the Family Worship Theatre have been rehearsing since early January with the choir for this Holy Week production. This musical drama showcases the choir who performs throughout the production, while the stage is set to mimic da Vinci’s

“Last Supper.” The apostles will step away from the table and share their innermost thoughts of the day. It is biblically and historically sound, however, there is not a lot of information about what the Apostles may have said, so a lot of the script is what they would have felt. Peter, for example, was a fisherman, who was called from his job by Jesus to follow and be “a fisher of men.” Peter was a bit stubborn and that is conveyed throughout the play. The celebration of Easter is the largest and most important celebration in the Christian faith because it remembers Jesus rising from the dead. Tom Franco, the play’s director, said, “The play has an ensemble of 18 actors, as well as more than 20 choir members. Everyone is pretty excited about this drama. It has been a ‘labor of love.’ The whole premise of the play is summarized

in the simple words, ‘Is it I?’” Franco explains that during the Last Supper, Jesus told his disciples that one of them would betray him and we gain insight into each apostle’s thoughts. “Ultimately,” said Franco, “the most important lesson of this presentation is God’s love and mercy. God’s will is perfect, but sometimes difficult to understand.” The production is open to all faiths. Admission is free. “We are hoping the church will be fi lled for the performances,” said Franco. “This performance will help people realize what is important in life and we believe that the reward on earth is nothing compared to the reward in the eternal kingdom.” Following Sunday’s performance there will be fellowship and refreshments in the church hall.

11.5 were tasked to chase Medicaid and Medicare reimbursement – trying to get Medicaid managed are organizations to pay the provider the money it was owed for services provided. Another facet of the administrative cost burden faced by voluntary providers is in the area of workforce support – recruiting staff, training new employees and providing assistance to help workers be successful in their demanding jobs. These costs amounted to $766,000 among the seven agencies and required the efforts of 25 full-time people. Workforce support costs are high because of the difficulty voluntary providers experience in recruiting and maintaining quality employees. Lack of sufficient fi nancial support from the state means voluntary providers are unable to offer competitive wages to entry-level direct support workers. And while voluntary providers attempt to pay workers a starting salary that exceeds the minimum wage, many potential workers would rather take a job at a fast-food restaurant than face the pressure and challenges that come with providing care to people

with developmental disabilities. The intense regulatory scrutiny demanded by the state only makes attracting and retaining new workers more difficult. It is typical for most organizations to see turnover of half of its new employees within the first three to six months of employment. And while voluntary providers rack up millions of dollars in administrative costs each year, New York State fails to reimburse providers for the entire costs they incur. One agency noted that the state expects the agency to carry unfunded administrative costs in excess of $800,000 annually. While New York State continues to talk about moving the system from fee for services to capitated managed care, the providers note that the current system has gone unchanged and is still subject to a burdensome, fragmented set of regulations and funding that require adherence to often confusing and irrational demands by the state that can only be satisfied through extensive and costly administrative supports and services.

spent a combined $1.75 million – and employed 42 people – in activities associated with quality assurance (including incident management, corporate compliance and the development and administration of plans of corrective action when agencies are cited for any level of fi nding associated with a myriad of state regulations). And with the scheduled opening later this year of New York State’s Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs (which is proposed to have a $37.4 million operating budget in 2013-14), voluntary providers are wary that the level of state regulatory oversight is only going to increase, as will the providers’ quality assurance costs. But quality assurance costs are only the second-largest administrative drain on the budgets of the seven WNY voluntary providers that were studied. The biggest hit to their budgets is in the area of necessary fi nancial services. The seven agencies combined spent $2.94 million on fi nancial services and needed 75 employees to do the work. Of the 17.5 full-time equivalencies employed by one agency,

The Corner Coffeehouse and Bistro restaurant I was immediately immersed in the smell of Italian cooking, a smell that is near and dear to my heart. The Café’s menu features many hearty entrees such as garlic and basil marinara, pasta Alfredo, sesame crusted bacon carbonara, and chicken and shrimp cream curry just to name a few. All of their pasta is handmade with authentic New York State grown semolina flour, and though it may seem subtle, let me just say that you can really taste the difference. Owner and head chef Joe Glarner had this to say about the choice to go organic: “Nutritionally it’s very healthy for you, especially when it comes to produce, but it’s also about raw flavors.

Some scams can be personal and direct where a thief will tell you a story that you have inherited a large sum of money but your personal information needs to be verified. Never send any sensitive financial information or social security numbers over email. It is best to just delete these emails and never respond. A third way that people can contact viruses is by clicking on a phony advertisement on the Internet that claims that you are infected and you need to

clean your computer now. If you see a message like that inside of a web page, my advice is to close the Internet, and restart your computer. That sounds like an extreme solution, but these type of ads can infect quickly. Don’t pay for online virus scanners until you check with a technician or a friend that you trust with fixing your computer. The final place that many people contract viruses is from places that advertise free music, ringtones, computer wallpaper, and

screensavers. If you have children that use your computer, it is important to supervise and instruct them on proper use so that these malicious programs are not downloaded. The Internet is an awesome place to discover and to have fun, but it is important that we keep our wits about us and be a little guarded as we use it.

Lost places: The Poor Farm, Continued from pg 1

in need, for the shortest period of time, with the limited resources at hand, while placing the foundation for social reform to come. Records of immigrants helped at the poor farm are also currently helping those who are tracing their genealogy to the county. “A Good Farm at A Reasonable Price” According to Henry, the county’s board of supervisors began looking for “good farm land at a reasonable price,” after a state law went into effect in 1830, requiring any county with a population over a certain size to establish a poor farm. Purchasing 90 acres, the county initially erected a two-story framed building at the Dewittville site. The farm grew quickly and by 1869, had increased the number of “substantial” buildings to include a main brick structure which served as the main housing for residents as well as the farm’s superintendent and his family. Next to the main building was a mental facility, which segregated those with mental illness or others considered dangerous. Other buildings included the boiler room, large horse and dairy barns, a chapel which served as a schoolhouse for children and a quarantine area for those with lice or other contagious conditions. Along with the growth in the number of structures, the farm grew from its original 90 to 435 acres. According to Henry, the growth was necessary since the farm grew its own food,

as well as supplying food to the county jail. Some of the vegetables grown by residents included potatoes, corn, peas, and other produce. The livestock at the farmhorses, cows, pigs and sheep- also needed pasture. Buying the additional property also increased its self-sufficiency, as it had one or two reservoirs piping its water supply down from the hill in back. In addition, poor farms were also required to send their produce and livestock to the county fairs. “For a number of years, our livestock went to the state level, and did very well.” Henry said. By that day’s standards, it was well run, says Henry. “For many years, the poor farm received very high ratings from the inspectors who came there.” ‘We were handed a ticket and told that our needs would be met’ The onslaught of immigrants from Europe during the 1850s- largely Irish escaping the potato famine and Germans- would also be felt in Dewittville, taxing the farm’s ability to provide for them, as well as swelling its ranks from 300-400 annually to its highest at 5,000. “I suspect they were probably cramming families in rooms that were meant for one or two people,” said Henry regarding the throngs of immigrants that the farm found itself serving. New facilities were not built, she said because many of the poor farm’s residents were there for short periods of time.

Completion of the New York and Erie Railroad in 1851 was largely responsible for those immigrants making their way from New York City to Dunkirk. Each day, an immigrant train would bring untold numbers to Dunkirk, many taken to the poor farm for temporary assistance. That posed an enormous problem, said Henry, since the county taxed the towns according to where each of its residents came from. “Right from the start, we started seeing the impact on the county’s finances and were trying to get the commissioners in NYC to reimburse us for all these people, and to get them to investigate where these folks were getting their train ticket. We were just unable to get them to cooperate.” She continued, “folks arrived here and said, ‘we were just handed a train ticket and told our needs would be met.’ “That told you something – somebody in the city was promoting their departure.” Daily Life Prior to the 1950s, residents worked on the farm, and in the kitchen, with an existence that wasn’t all that different from how most lived at the time, according to Henry. “Most of our first settlers were living in log cabins, so it was not terribly different than the way people were already living.” The home also had a doctor on call for residents who might need medical attention. Because of the growing stigma attached to the name “poor farm,” the

name was changed in the 1920s to the County Home, by the 1950s, farm worked had stopped. “Our ideas on how to treat the indigent or people with disabilities changed too,” says Henry. “We really saw an expansion of our social programs in the 50s and 60s, so that those with other needs (physical or mental disabilities) were being met by those programs, and it was no longer a function of the home.” All the buildings at the poor farm were either torn down or fell down by the 1980s with nothing remaining today. Residents of the home were moved to the new Dunkirk location in the early 1960s, because of the need to be near an accredited hospital, said Henry.

Potters Field Today, all that remains of the Chautauqua County Poor Farm is its potter field, landlocked by private property; an obelisk and boulder mark the grounds where residents who died there are buried. According to Henry, it is uncertain how many are actually there due to irregularities in record keeping at the time, but the numbers could well be over 1,2001,500. Sometimes remains were interred, only to be reclaimed by family members at another time.

According to Henry, some believe that after 30 years, the graves were re-opened and reused. In reflecting on the poor farm, Henry says, “I am impressed with the role that it played in the county when it was established. Being that it was the only social program, it served many, many county residents and immigrants, and now we have people from all over the country contacting us trying to retrace their immigrant ancestors’ deaths, so we are lucky to have those records.”

Great Expectations


Sabres amid worst season in franchise history

FREDONIA STATE SOFTBALL READY TO BUILD ON 2012 SUCCESS Contributed Article Fredonia State Sports Information Department

By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

The 2013 Fredonia State softball season starts March 21 with the team trip to Clermont, Florida. After finishing 16-16-1 in 2012, the Blue Devils have greater expectations this season. Head coach Nicole Loudin is entering her second season and believes the talent on the team exceeds how they finished last season. Nine players are returning in 2013--four starters and three senior pitchers. Senior co-captains Tina Schwartzmeyer (West Seneca/ West Seneca East) and Anne Wasik (Fredonia/Fredonia) are returning starters and will be relied upon to lead the Blue Devils. Schwartzmeyer was an All SUNYAC shortstop in 2010 and has a .310 career batting average. Wasik, last year's starting right fielder, who has also seen time at second base, was named SUNYAC Player of the Week twice last season. In 2012 she batted .330 with 18 RBI, most by a returning player. Senior center fielder Katie Bartkowiak (Fredonia/Fredonia) carries a .429 career batting average into the 2013 season and is among the Fredonia State alltime leaders in several statistical categories. The 2009 SUNYAC Rookie of the Year and threetime All SUNYAC player, Bartkowiak is third with 145 career hits, 24 shy of the school record held by Heather Mercer, who

The Buffalo Sabres are bad. They’re terrible. Every facet of their game is just putrid. That shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone who has watched the team this year — or even glanced at the standing from time to time. But what if I said that this was the worst season in the 42-year history of the franchise? No, I don’t think I’m being dramatic or hyperbolic. Perhaps in terms of win-loss record Sabres fans have seen worse, but when you look at the entire season from the Anne Wasik, Danielle Shelp and Tina Swartzmeyer will captain the 2013 Fredonia State softball team.

Ironmen Hang Onto Second Place With Weekend Split Contributed Article Jamestown Ironmen

The Jamestown Ironmen remain in second place in the North Division after paying a visit to Kalamazoo and splitting a two-game set with the third-place Jr. K-Wings this past weekend in North American Hockey League action. Kalamazoo actually jumped into second place with a 3-2 victory on Saturday afternoon, but its time in front was short lived. Jamestown regained a one-point lead on the number two spot in the North with a 4-2 win on Sunday. On Saturday, Kalamazoo scored the only first-period goal but Jamestown answered early in the second with a goal from Victor Johansson, assisted by Dylan Zink. The Jr. K-Wings wasted no time, regaining the lead with a goal less than 15 seconds later. Joe Mottiqua tied the game up once again with 8:50 left in the third with an Ironmen goal assisted by Matthew Crocket. Kalamazoo answered right back once again, scoring less than a minute later to take the edge and seal the win. Jamestown outshot Kalamazoo, 3629 on the night and goaltender Joey Ballmer made 26 saves in the loss. On Sunday, Kalamazoo again scored the only goal of the first period, and took a 2-0 lead 16:44 into the second. Just when the Jr. K-Wings looked like they were on their way to a weekend sweep of their division foe, the Ironmen got right back into the game. Tyler Dunagan and Luc Gerdes each scored a goal within 30 seconds of each other and tied the score with less than two minutes remaining in

the second. Assists came from Huba Sekesi, Ross Pavek, Michael Mazzotta and Evan Ritt. Jamestown owned the third as Elliot Tisdale scored a short-handed goal 7:12 into the third with an assist from Mottiqua. Tisdale’s score gave the Ironmen a 3-2 lead and proved to be the game winner. Gerdes added his second goal of the day with an empty-netter in the last minute of the game with the assist from Ryan Urso. The Ironmen almost doubled Kalamazoo’s shots, outshooting the home team, 41-22 while Ballmer made 20 saves in goal during the 4-2 win.

baseman Michelle Lattner and six other four-year players. Two of six, Lauren Larson and Ashley LaPorta, will serve as assistant coaches in 2013. Also lost via graduation were Rachel Burrows, Gabrielle Ciccarello, Brittany Lis, and Jennifer Tighe. The Blue Devils are picked for eighth in the SUNYAC coaches' preseason poll. “The team is more talented than eighth," Loudin said, "and we are confident in being the underdog. The starting lineup will be put together based off what gives us the best opportunity to score runs.” The Blue Devils open their season on March 21 against New England College in Clermont, Fla. They return home to face Oneonta, in a doubleheader March 29.

“Kalamazoo is a good team, and we are happy to get out with the split and be back in second place in the North,” said Jamestown head coach Dan Daikawa. The Ironmen are shooting to hold onto that second spot in the division in order to earn a first-round bye in the playoffs. Jamestown’s four remaining regular season games are at home starting this upcoming weekend as the Ironmen play host to the Michigan Warriors. Jamestown will take on Michigan at the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena this Friday at 7 p.m. and on Saturday at 5 p.m.

Enroth In Fine Form As Sabres Topple Habs Contributed Article Associated Press

Jhonas Enroth did what was needed to get the Buffalo Sabres a win. The Buffalo goaltender had stopped 32 shots - including 26 while protecting a lead in the second and third periods - to help the Sabres post a 3-2 overtime victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday. Steve Ott's second goal of the game at 2:16 overtime clinched the victory after Montreal tied the score with a pair of third-period goals. ''I was just trying to focus on the next shot, stay sharp,'' Enroth said. ''It's huge for us and it's good we could finally win a game with a power-play goal.'' The shots didn't tell all of the story of Enroth's workload, as the Canadiens had 24 more attempts that missed the net. The 24-year-old doesn't get to play a lot behind No. 1 goalie Ryan Miller, but got the start in Montreal largely because he has never lost to the Canadiens. His record is 3-0-0 against the Habs. ''It's actually 4-0 - I won an exhibition game up here too,'' Enroth said with a laugh. ''It's always a lot of fun to play here. They've got a really good team this year, so this was probably the toughest win for me.'' Enroth may see more action in coming days. The Sabres have won only twice in their past eight games and Enroth was in net for both. He subbed for a sick Miller in a 3-1 win over the New York Rangers on March 12. Ott and Tyler Ennis scored in the opening period for Buffalo. The Canadiens entered the third period down 2-0, but got goals from Max Pacioretty and Colby Armstrong to tie the game. But only 17 seconds into overtime, Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban took an open-ice run at Mark Pysyk and missed, with his stick catching the Sabres defenseman for a highsticking penalty. Only two seconds remained

2012-13 NHL Standings

COMMENTARY CONTINUED FROM PG 1 Bills are usually mediocre. The Sabres haven’t sniffed mediocrity since the third game of the season as the losses just keep piling up. It’s not even that the losses keep piling up. Lots of teams lose games, but the Sabres are managing to do it in humiliating fashion this season. Let’s take a look back at some of those games that fans have probably tried to block from their memory forever. On Jan. 27, the Sabres took on a Washington Capitals team that entered with a record of 0-3-1 and a league-worst goal differential of minus-9. The result: a 3-2 Caps win of course as the Sabres dropped their third straight game after the 2-0 star. On Feb. 2, two days after beating the mighty Bruins in Boston, the Sabres laid an egg of epic proportions. The Blue and Gold went up to Montreal and wound up on the wrong end of a 6-1 beatdown. It was ugly from the start and never got any better. The next day, at home, the Sabres blew a late lead and lost 4-3 to Florida,

which we all know now is hilariously bad. The Sabres managed to go a full two weeks without embarrassing themselves after losing to the pathetic Panthers, but then came a Feb. 19 home contest against the Winnipeg Jets. The Jets entered at 5-8-1 and were reeling after three straight losses. You can probably sense a theme by now. Yes, Buffalo fell 2-1. The Feb. 23 contest against the New York Islanders might be the low point of the season. In the comforts of First Niagara Center, the Sabres took on the team allowing the most goals of any NHL team. The Islanders defense is terrible and their goaltending is laughable. What did that combination do to the Sabres? Try a 4-0 whooping. Then just this past Sunday the Sabres got another shot at the Capitals, who had lost four of five while getting outscored 19-7. In what seemed like the perfect chance to turn the season around, Buffalo played so poorly that it prompted the color commentators

to suggest that the Sabres were mailing it in. And what about Lindy Ruff? Ruff had been a former Sabres player and head coach of the team since 1997. After a nightmarish start to the season, Ruff was fired on Feb. 20. Between his playing and coaching days, Ruff had been a part of more than half the games in the history of the Buffalo Sabres franchise. The recent news of realignment probably didn’t ease fans’ suffering any. The problem with this realignment is the sheer numbers. In the Eastern Conference, there are eight playoff spots for 16 teams. In the West, there are eight playoff spots for 14 teams. That’ll make a playoff berth that much harder for the Sabres in the future. The season isn’t apt to get any better for fans. As the trading deadline approaches, there is more and more talk of the team trading the likes of Ryan Miller, Thomas Vanek and Jason Pomenville. Say what you will, but the team will absolutely not be better without those three guys — in the

American League Will Boast Some Big Dogs In 2013

By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

The American League had a couple of surprise playoff teams in 2012 with both the Oakland Athletics and Baltimore Orioles coming from left field to crash the postseason party. Don’t look for that to happen again. The American League is anything but balanced — at least on paper, of course. The Toronto Blue Jays, Detroit Tigers and Los Angeles Angels each took steps to significantly improve during the offseason. Will any of those three be able to live up to the high expectations? The following is a brief breakdown of each team and division in the American League. Projected fi nish within the division is in parenthesis.

American League East

Baltimore Orioles (4th) — The Orioles were quiet in the offseason when some predicted they would try to bring in a free agent or two to bolster their playoff roster from 2012. The biggest move by Baltimore was letting strikeout king Mark Reynolds go to the Cleveland Indians. This freed up playing time for 20-year old sensation Manny Machado at third base. The Birds have a tough hill to climb if they want to match last season’s success. There are a lot of people in baseball circles that simply feel Baltimore got lucky last season, as evidenced by its 29-9 record in one-run games. You’d be foolish to totally overlook the Orioles, however, as a lineup that includes Nick Markakis, Machado, Adam Jones, Matt Wieters and Brian Roberts is bound to put up some runs. The rotation isn’t exactly chalked full of All Stars, but closer Jim Johnson is automatic at the back end of a solid bullpen. Look for another 20-year old, top prospect Dylan Bundy, to see the Major Leagues at some point this season.

Boston Red Sox (2nd) — The Red Sox were a total train wreck in 2012. The injuries mounted almost as fast as the losses and the lineup Boston trotted out to the field every night was unrecognizable. Everyone knows about the trade that sent Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez and Josh Beckett to LA, but more important are the pieces Boston brought in to replace them. Shane Victorino isn’t the Flying Hawaiian he once was, but his presence in the lineup and locker room should be beneficial. Boston got Mike Napoli at a bargain price after a hip injury voided the original deal and his right-handed power should terrify opposing pitchers in Fenway Park. Joel Hanrahan was been one of the top-five closers in the league over the past three

seasons, albeit in Pittsburgh. Stephen Drew, Ryan Dempster and even Jonny Gomes are all upgrades over the Minor Leaguers that were wearing Red Sox uniforms last season. A healthy Wil MIddlebrooks, Dustin Pedroia and Jacoby Ellsbury should mean a return to the postseason. The rotation isn’t world-class but Jon Lester has been great when healthy and motivated. Hanrahan and Andrew Bailey make a devastating duo to close out games.

New York Yankees (5th) — Let the angry emails begin. Yes, fifth place for the once-great Yankees. The injuries are just too great an obstacle. How many teams could withstand the loss of their starting center fielder, first baseman and third baseman and be perfectly fine? Kevin Youkilis can play one of the corner infield spots, but the Yanks have Eduardo Nunez penciled in at DH to begin the season and who knows at first base. The Yankees had 10 players hit double-digit home runs last season. On Opening Day, eight of them won’t be in a Yankee uniform and shortstop Derek Jeter is coming off a horrific ankle injury. Losing Nick Swisher, Russell Martin and Raul Ibanez will hurt as much in the locker room as on the field. Jeter and Ichiro Suzuki will probably hit 1-2 in the batting order, but the duo is a combined 77 years old. Not to be outdone, Hiroki Kuroda and Andy Pettitte will be the Nos. 2 & 3 starters and are a combined 78 years old. Between the advanced age, declining performance and serious injuries to Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeria and Alex Rodriguez, there’s just no way this team succeeds. That said, Robinson Cano is one of the best players in all of baseball and should be in the MVP conversation from Day 1. If teams are dumb enough to pitch to him, that is. It’s not like Francisco Cervelli offers a whole lot of lineup protection.

healthy, should return to superstardom. Ben Zobrist is one of the unheralded stars of the league. Those three players will have to buoey the offense. The rotation could be the best in the league if the young guys reach their potential. David Price is a bone-fide ace. Jeremy Hellickson and Jeff Neimann have both had their moments and Matt Moore and Alex Cobb have stardom in their futures. Fernando Rodney was untouchable last year, and while many thought it a fluke, he has looked even better in the World Baseball Classic. If the Rays are going to succeed, they’ll need to win a lot of 3-1type ballgames. Luckily, they’ve proven to be quite good at that over the years.

Toronto Blue Jays (1st) — Talk about going all in. The Blue Jays took full advantage of the Miami Marlins’ fire sale and snagged Jose Reyes, Mark Beuhrle, Josh Johnson and Emilio Bonifacio. They also signed last season’s first-half darling Melky Cabrera and traded for National League Cy Youngwinner R.A. Dickey. Sure, they gave up some prospects, but what a haul. The Blue Jays already have a solid lineup with Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion launching balls out of ballparks and Colby Rasmus, Brett Lawrie and J.P. Arencibia each coming into their own. People forget because of last season’s debacle in Miami, but Reyes is really, really good. This is a guy who hit .337 in 2011 and has led the league in triples four times. He walks a lot, steals a bunch of bases and plays very good defense at shortstop. He could very well be the American League MVP this year. The rotation is filthy. Dickey, Morrow, Buehrle, Johnson and Rickey Romero all have a track record of success. If Johnson is fully healthy, he could be the best of the bunch. It’s safe to drink the Kool-Aid, this team is stacked.

American League Central

Tampa Bay Rays (3rd) — The Rays made headlines when they traded away two-fi fths of their starting rotation in James Shields and Wade Davis to the Kansas City Royals. They got back stud prospect Wil Meyers, but many don’t see him beginning the season in the Major Leagues, so we’ll have to wait to see his much-anticipated power. The other moves Tampa Bay made probably don’t help the team right away either. James Loney is awful at first base, Yunel Escobar has a very low ceiling and Luke Scott struggled to get over the Mendoza Line last season. That said, Desmond Jennings can be dymanic. Evan Longoria, if

Chicago White Sox (4th) — The South Siders surprised a lot of people by staying in contention late last year. Lefty Chris Sale broke out with a true “ace” performance and was rewarded with a healthy contract extension. Jake Peavy had a nice bounce-back year and Chicago will need another from the oft-injured star if it wants to be competitive again. The lineup is nothing to get excited about. Paul Konerko is still flying under the radar even though he’s put together — arguably — a Hall of Fame career. Adam Dunn will hit his fair share of home runs, but a sub-.200 batting average is just awful. Alex Rios had a return to form

also, but don’t be surprised if he reverts back to the frustratingly terrible Alex Rios of years past. Like most teams, the rotation will be key. After Sale and Peavy, things get shaky. John Danks was abysmal and hurt last year. Gavin Floyd won 12 games, but also had a 4.29 ERA. Jose Quintana is a bit of an unknown, but the White Sox brass is very high on his arm. Everything has to go perfect for Chicago to compete in the Central, but don’t expect it to.

Cleveland Indians (3rd) — The Tribe gave up fan favorite Shin-Soo Choo over the offseason, but acquired top pitching prospect Trevor Bauer in the process. The signing of Michael Bourn should help ease the loss of Choo and give the Indians a nice leadoff hitter who plays Gold Glove-caliber defense. The entire lineup looks good after Bourn. Jason Kipnis and Asdrubal Cabrera make up a stellar middle infield. Nick Swisher, Carlos Santana and Mark Reynolds should provide some pop while a team could do much worse than Lonnie Chisenhall, Michael Brantley and Drew Stubbs at the bottom of the order. It’s the rotation that will end up leaving Cleveland on the outside looking in come playoff time. Justin Masterson and Ubaldo Jimenez can be above average, but both have struggled as well. Brett Meyers wasn’t even good enough to start for Houston. A combination of Zach McAllister, Carlos Carrasco and Bauer will make up the rest of the rotation after Daisuke Matsuzaka was mercifully cut a few days ago. Chris Perez is a pretty good closer with a great beard, but was injured last year and will be relied on a lot as Cleveland probably won’t be blowing people away this year.

mark on this team as rookie Bruce Rondon is penciled in to start the season. The flamethrower was lights out in the minors last year, but has struggled with command a little bit during Spring Training. Phil Coke waits in the wings if Rondon should struggle, so Jim Leyland certainly has a nice insurance policy. The Tigers started slow last year and were actually in danger of missing the playoffs before reaching the World Series. Look for Detriot to run away with the Central this time around.

Kansas City Royals (2nd) — The pitching staff will be the strength of the 2013 Royals. When was the last time you could say that? But with the addition of James Shields, Ervin Santana and Wade Davis, it very well could be true. Jeremy Guthrie and Bruce Chen make up the rest of the rotation, but don’t exactly strike fear into opposing batters. The lineup is young, but loaded with potential. Eric Hosmer was viewed as the key, but struggled mightily last year. Maybe his time on Team USA in the WBC helped him out. Billy Butler is a hitting machine and Mike Moustakas is another young stud at third base. Alcides Escobar had a great season last year and should be in for another. There’s no obvious superstars in this lineup right now, but there might be a couple developed by the season’s end.

place by the end of May.

American League West

Houston Astros (5th) — The only reason to put the Astros fi fth is because you can’t put them any lower. If this was the NFL, there would already be talk about an 0-16 season for Houston. This team is really bad. Perhaps recordsetting bad. If you listen carefully you can already hear the “Why does every team get an All-Star” argument that is bound to happen when Houston’s is announced. It’s a team that’s fi lled with players that strikeout a ton AND don’t hit for much power. Brett Wallace and Chris Carter are okay. Jose Altuve was an All Star last year. Matt Dominguez is a former Jamestown Jammer. That’s about all the positive that can be said about the Astros as they prepare to start their first season in the American League. Oh, that and their farm system is loaded with talent after years of picking near the beginning of the draft.

Los Angeles Angels (1st) — The Angels are everything the Astros are, except the exact opposite. This team can hit, pitch and field with the best of them. Mike Trout better already have a place on his mantle for the many MVP awards he’s sure to win starting this year. Albert Pujols and Mark Trumbo were scary enough, but then LA went out and signed Josh Hamilton away from the Rangers.

Unbeaten Dominicans Win World Baseball Classic, 3-0 By Janie McCauley AP Baseball Writer

Tony Pena passed around the shiny trophy and let all of his players offer their besitos, or little kisses. Robinson Cano passed around a phone as his teammates took turns receiving congratulations from Dominican Republic President Danilo Medina. ''We appreciate that from the president,'' Jose Reyes said. ''This win is all about the Dominican Republic. They were hungry waiting for this moment, and we did it.'' The Dominican Republic has its World Baseball Classic crown, at last. Cheers of ''Dominicana! Dominicana!'' rang out through the rain at AT&T Park all the way to the lively streets of Santo Domingo. Edwin Encarnacion hit a tworun double in the first inning that held up, and the Dominicans capped a dominant, unbeaten run through the WBC with a 3-0 win against Puerto Rico for the championship Tuesday night. ''Tomorrow will be a national holiday,'' said Moises Alou, the proud Dominican general manager. ''It was a tremendous win.'' Cano earned MVP honors, Erick Aybar added an RBI double to back winner Samuel Deduno, and the demonstrative Dominican righty threw his arms into the air in delight after watching a run-saving defensive gem by center fielder Alejandro De Aza in a tough fi fth. The Dominican fans - fanaticos, indeed - didn't let the Bay Area's wet weather keep them from dancing in the stands, waving flags and tooting horns. Flags became makeshift ponchos. It was fitting, too, perhaps, considering the World Series champion Giants clinched the NL pennant against the Cardinals in a downpour on this very field last fall. Some 50,000 more supporters gathered to watch on televisions inside and outside of Estadio Quisqueya in the Dominican capital city.


home runs, six RBIs, six runs scored and two doubles. The 15 hits are a WBC record. He also earned MVP honors in each of the first two rounds. Encarnacion fi nished with six WBC RBIs. After drawing a pair of intentional walks a night earlier, Cano had another in the first inning against loser Giancarlo Alvarado. The Puerto Rican right-hander surrendered Encarnacion's double two pitches later, and was done after one shaky inning featuring 22 pitches and only 10 strikes. Hiram Burgos relieved and struck out five in 4 2-3 innings. ''We didn't have a lot of big names,'' Puerto Rico manager Edwin Rodriguez said. ''The people who were here wanted to be here. They had a mission, and that was to give everything.

the Big 3 of Barry Zito, Mark Mulder and Tim Hudson? We might be in for that era again with Jarrod Parker, Brett Anderson and Tommy Milone. The big question is simply if the lineup can put up enough runs to support to solid pitching staff. Coco Crisp, Brandon Moss and Scott Sizemore are castoffs from other teams, but Oakland Athletics (2nd) — played a vital role in Oakland’s postseason push After the season they had last year, it would be foolish last year.

recent memory since the A-Rod-Griffey days. The lineup is fi lled with guys that “experts” projected to be stars but have thus far disappointed. Dustin Ackley, Franklin Gutierrez, Jesus Montero and Justin Smoak need to produce for the Mariners to compete in a tough division. Kyle Seager was a nice surprise last year and there’s no reason to think he won’t have a repeat season. Felix Hernandez can go about business as usual with a mammoth contract extension inked. Hopefully having all that money tied up in one player won’t handicap the Mariners, who don’t exactly play in a huge market like New York or Chicago. Seattle will be better in 2013 than it’s been for the past few years, but

This could be the year starting pitcher Yu Darvish breaks out in a big way. He started painfully slow last year, but when he was on, there weren’t many Major League hitters that could touch him. Derek Texas Rangers (3rd) — Josh Holland and Matt Harrison Hamilton and Mike Napoli round out a nice top-three — the Rangers lost more starters while Alexi Ogando than any team in the and Colby Lewis have had division. To add insult to stretches of dominance in injury, Hamilton went to their careers.
