“Hog’s back”

Ever since the September 11th attacks, cable television has made use of the “news crawl”. This crawl or ticker appears at the bottom of a news program with news information that is constantly being updated. This craving for frequent news updates by consumers, and the competitive nature of news outlets has perpetuated the news crawl and it appears to be a mainstay in our television viewing. Television news outlets also realized that the Internet and the World Wide Web needed to be continueD on pG 12

Last week I had the pleasure of attending a press conference hosted by the Lucy Desi Center and Museum at Jamestown’s recently renovated train station. Journey Gunderson, the center’s executive director, eloquently spoke about the new comedy line up this year, which includes comedians Bill Engdahl and Kathleen Madison, as well as the many partnerships the center is forming, including related events with Pandora radio and Shea’s Performing Arts Center. Numerous media outlets, as well as local dignitaries and other principals crowded into the large venue. Renovations at the train station have transformed the setting into a beautiful landmark, and a must-see for everyone! You couldn’t help but feel an excitement; yes, there are people with a vision for our region! We are fi nally getting something right. How things can change in

just a week. I have often run 5k races, and despite a lengthy injury, still had it in my sites to begin training for the Lucy Town Marathon and 5K in October. I love the excitement of these races and the camaraderie shared among runners. I would describe the entire experience as both happy and satisfying. So, you can imagine my reaction to the events in Boston. Like so many things in our post 9-11 lives, there is now a new normal. Activities once taken for granted, including traveling, going to school, and now running a race- are changed forever. Fortunately, the pall that is cast immediately over tragic public events diminishes in time as we become accustomed to the restrictions and added security that we must endure to provide an element of protection in public settings. Ms. Gunderson made this statement in reaction to this week’s event: “In light of the recent tragedy at the Boston Marathon, event organizers for the Lucy Town Half Marathon and 5k will be placing an added emphasis on event security. We expect that race organizers from around the world will be taking extra measures to prevent another tragedy like the one that occurred in Boston, and we will be following suit here in Jamestown.” Welcome to the new normal. Let’s not let it dampen our enthusiasm for life or living, or for that matter, anything else we wish to do.

Chautauqua County Humane Society Pet of the Week

Pets of the Week

This week we are featuring “Herbert” and “Shapara.” Herbert is a two-year-old long hair kitty. He is a real friendly guy that likes to be petted. He does well with other cats and would be a great addition to any home. Shapara is an eight-month-old Golden Retriever/German Shepherd mix. She is a little cautious at first, but once she warms up she is a barrel of fun. She does need some training and sometimes she can be a bit of a talker. She would do best in a home without small children and with a family that can give her the exercise and training she needs. If either of these pets sounds like the one for you, stop by the Strunk Road Adoption Center. You will be glad you did.

Along with the vibrant spring growth, now just appearing along our roadways, comes the emergence of litter that has been buried under the snow. Jayson Castillo spent three strenuous hours removing litter from Bear Lake Road as part of the SUNY Fredonia Earth Week Celebration. The two and a half miles, which have been adopted by Greystone Nature Preserve, will now be a more natural setting. Eleven large bags of litter were collected and the scenic road is ready to welcome the plants and flowers of spring. Diane Clark, director of Greystone Nature Preserve, saluted Jason. “As a senior

Dr. Jeanne wiebenga, MD local doctor speaKs aBout treating dc iMMigrants By Patricia Pihl Managing Editor

As a doctor of obstetrics and gynecology and seasoned traveler, Jeanne Wiebenga has worked in numerous locations across the U.S. and around the world, treating women in her native Holland, as well as Africa and Australia. Women in the Jamestown area might remember Dr. Wiebenga when she worked at Lane’s Women Health Group, and as a hospital physician at WCA for almost 10 years from 1992 to 2002. When she’s not crisscrossing the globe for work or pleasure, Wiebenga has found a home at Chautauqua Institution. Since 2009, she has worked in the Northern Virginia county of Fairfax, and is one of ten physicians providing prenatal care to women at Inova Cares Clinic, the majority of whom are immigrants whose income falls below the federal poverty level. She is also a supervising physician at Inova Fairfax Hospital, overseeing medical residents from George Washington University who deliver babies to the mothers receiving prenatal care. While working with Native American and immigrant women in the Southwest, Wiebenga says she has never worked with such a “diverse group of immigrants.” The group consists of many different backgrounds. The vast majority, about 80 %, is from Central and South America, while

the other women are from Asia, Africa and Europe. All in all the women are from nearly 100 different countries, speaking a multitude of languages. City of Immigrants In fact, Washington, DC, has been called “a city of immigrants,” with a fivefold increase in 30 years, according to a report from the Brookings Institution. Immigrants now make up 17% of metropolitan Washington’s population of 5 million. Despite (or due to) their dire circumstances, the women endure numerous hardships to make it to the U.S. to provide a better life for themselves - but mainly for their children. As a whole, Wiebenga says she was surprised with the group’s tenacity, and eagerness to succeed, as well as the way they conducted themselves. “Specifically,” Wiebenga says, “there is virtually no problem with the use drugs, alcohol or smoking. We see very little of that; it’s quite amazing.” The outcomes of their pregnancies in general are good, if not better than for American-born women. “Healthy Immigrant Effect” It’s what has been called “the healthy immigrant effect,” which is a bias toward younger and healthier individuals coming to the U.S. and is especially true with the Hispanic population. One exception she has seen is with gestational diabetes, which may be attributed to immigrants’ adjusting to the American diet.

Dr. Jeanne Wiebenda, MD is shown in her Chautauqua home. (Photo by Patricia Pihl)

Wiebenga says she is not required to ask whether the person she is treating is in the United States legally or illegally, but estimates that at least one third are “undocumented” or illegal immigrants. Regardless of their status, the care they receive - from 28 weeks of pregnancy until birth - is paid for by Inova’s Health Systems, in following their Charity Policy, which states that people will receive health care services regardless of their ability to pay. Although their husbands or partners may have been deported, the women she sees have a very strong support group of friends or relatives.

Rarely, does she see what she characterizes as “the deplorable, miserable loneliness” that may be found in other indigent populations. The group is also untraditional in a number of other ways, according to Wiebenga. “In general, 70% of the immigrant population in the DC area has finished high school and almost all work- either legally or illegally.” She adds that those jobs are not just in housekeeping or construction trades but also in high-tech industries and health care. Once born here, children of immigrants are automatically given U. S. citizenship,

and do quite well, ending up going to good schools and universities, says Wiebenga. With a sense of pride, she recounts how she’s seen small children come into the clinic who are bilingual, who will translate messages between care providers and their mothers. It may be their attitude (or lack of attitude) that surprises her most. “It wasn’t always easy to deal with people who have a real sense of entitlement and these people do not.” The women she sees never miss an appointment, sometimes having to take two buses to get to the clinic where she sees them. When it is necessary to wait for a doctor, they do so, without complaint. She adds, “you rarely hear them say anything about the aches and pains of pregnancy…they give the impression that they want to do the best for their babies.” “Sacrificing A Lot” “I’ve learned a lot from their humility and simplicity- and their willingness to sacrifice, and they sacrifice a lot,” says Wiebenga, noting similarities to former immigrants- like the Irish who escaped the potato famine, or other impoverished groups passing through Ellis Island. She admits that the population she sees is skewed as she treats only pregnant women, noting, “and who is more vulnerable than that?” They have also sought out the booming Washington economy, with its recent expansion of high-

tech and bio-tech firms in which to reside, Fairfax County being one of the most affluent and largest in VA. “I am an immigrant myself, but I came from a very different background. I didn’t have to fight my way up. I landed here- the country benefits, but I’m the one who benefits the most.” “To me it’s the immigrants who make this country so vibrant,” says Wiebenga, noting that immigrants founded many of the biggest companies in the country. She admits that assimilation should be the goalbut many of the current enclaves of immigrants in metropolitan areas don’t reflect that. Except for older generations, she also feels its perfectly reasonable to expect immigrants to learn to speak English. Need for Reform Citing the need for immigration reform, Wiebenga says that, ultimately, America will be a better country because of it. “There is this whole first generation of immigrants who are here now- I call it the transitional generation. They came for many reasons, escaping persecution or economic or other hardships. They are here overwhelmingly because they seek a better life for their families. Now we have a whole next generation of kids who are multicultural, who know more than just the American way…and eventually will blend in with it. I think that’s a tremendous boost to this country.”

entire world that is available for viewing via online streaming video. “Bigfoots are not a paranormal, they are real,” says Peter Wiemer, who serves as the expo’s director. “We are very excited to be expanding our event and giving people more opportunities to talk and learn about bigfoots.” The town hall meeting on April 26 will take place from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the YMCA Camp Onyahsa on the shores of Chautauqua Lake in Dewittville. Participants will be able to speak openly about bigfoot encounters they have had and also listen to others speak about reported bigfoot sightings in Western New York and parts of Pennsylvania. The Chautauqua Lake Bigfoot School on April 27 will also take place at Camp Onyahsa. Classes will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on how to make bigfoot footprint casts, how to interview eyewitnesses who claim to have seen a bigfoot, how to collect evi-

dence related to a bigfoot sighting and a special session on equipment needed for investigations of possible bigfoot sightings from the bare necessities to the use of more complex tools and equipment. Participants will receive a diploma and green ribbon declaring them graduates of Chautauqua Lake Bigfoot School. Wiemer says the classes “will teach the young and the old the skills needed when searching for bigfoots or other animals” and will be followed up with instruction for children on fishing conducted by the iKidsFishing Show. The expo on April 28 will

feature appearances from people Wiemer say are nationally known bigfoot researchers, including Larry Battson, Billy Willard, Steve Kulls and Melissa Hovey. In addition to the discussions, classes and guest presentations by the scheduled speakers, vendors will be selling merchandise such as t-shirts, postcards, posters, paintings and carvings. “As I announced last May, there are bigfoots living in peace and harmony here in Chautauqua County,” says Wiemer, a 1976 graduate of Chautauqua Central High School. “I invite anyone who is interested in learning more about these

creatures to come visit us next weekend.” Tickets for all of the events are now on sale, with the cost being $15 for adults and $10 for children 15 years of age and younger for activities both April 26 and April 27. Tickets for the expo on April 28 are $20 for adults and $10 for children 15 years of age and younger.

Sprucing Up Midway State Park Contributed Article Office of Assemblyman Andy Goodell

Assemblyman Andy Goodell (R,C,I-Chautauqua) will join Parks and Trails New York and local volunteers on Saturday, May 4 at 9 a.m. for “I Love My Park Day” at Midway State Park. “I Love My Park Day” provides volunteers a way to give back to New York state parks while also promoting the affordability and close proximity of many of the state parks dur-

ing the upcoming summer travel season. “New York offers a wide variety of state parks, all of which provide outstanding recreational activities all summer long. Midway State Park especially provides families with young children the chance to spend a day at an amusement park without bearing the cost associated with many of the other major parks,” said Goodell. “Last year’s ‘I Love My Park Day’ was a tremendous success and I’m pleased to see it return again this year. The

volunteers and staff did an outstanding job sprucing up the park and preparing it for the upcoming season.” During the day-long event, volunteers will be providing a range of services to help better prepare the park for the season. Those attending are asked to bring garden gloves, water, a snack and lunch. Volunteers of all ages are encouraged to attend. Additional information on the event can be found by visiting

Your Retirement Is Definitely Worth Planning For You’ve heard it said before: Timing is everything. Especially when it comes to starting your Social Security benefits. More than 90% of working Americans are counting on Social Security to replace part of their current incomes when they retire, but the truth is the majority of those already drawing benefits receive permanently reduced amounts due to ill-informed timing decisions. In fact, many Americans fail to take into account the true impact of factors such as age, job status, taxes and marital status when deciding when to start receiving benefits. And that can prove to be a costly mistake. Don’t make the same mistakes other retirees make. It could mean leaving money on the table at atime when you’ll need it most. That’s why it’s important to develop a strategy to maximize your household Social Security benefits and enhance your overall retirement income plan. After all, a little planning now can go a long way – and in this case, we’re talking a lifetime.

Keeping the Faith

Rev. Michael Lokietek Family Church Fredonia

Dear Pastor, what events are going to happen at “The Rapture”? As we mentioned last week, although the word “Rapture” is not found in the Bible, it is a Christian term for the event of the return of Jesus Christ. It is during this time that He takes His Believers into heaven as described in the Bible. When it comes to the events that happen at the Rapture, Hollywood’s biggest action film doesn’t even come close to what God has planned! Let’s examine these events in 1 Thessalonians 4:15-

17, “For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. (15) For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. (16) Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.” From this passage we gain some insight into the order of events.

When the day arrives, the Lord Jesus Christ will leave the throne in heaven with a shout of joy. While we are not sure what He actually shouts, we can infer from this scripture that if the Lord shouts for joy, it must be something that Christians can shout about, too! After the shout, the Archangel Gabriel will blow a trumpet and the dead in Christ will be raised up. This means that all the Christians that are in heaven will once again receive their bodies in a glorified state. What modern film’s “special effects” could compare to the sight of dust coming together

to form life-filled, better than ever, glorified bodies? According to the Bible (1 Corinthians 15:51-54) once the dead are raised up to meet Jesus, then those Christians still living on the earth will also receive glorified bodies and be caught up, too! Like Jesus’ body after His resurrection, these new bodies will resemble us but will be supernatural. After the Rapture, those who accepted the gift of salvation will be together, forever with Jesus. This is the fulfillment of God’s promises in His Word and is something that we shouldn’t miss for the world!

The Weekly Word

Rev. Tim Stahlman Family Church Jamestown

Can a Christian Lose Their Salvation? I am often asked this question. I am completely aware that is a theologically loaded question and has even become politically charged amongst denominations that have differing postures on the subject. It is important to identify the reason this question is asked. Many ask this question because they fear for themselves or someone they know. They are seeking relief in their conscience from something other than the peace that comes from obeying God. Others work hard in the ministry and don’t want to see any fruit lost. Either way we cannot cheapen the Lord’s command to make disciples, not just converts. (Matthew 28:20) It’s like this: I remember in High

School, in my senior year, every student is required to write a research paper. It terrified everybody. Many students spread rumors that some were purchasing papers on the internet or buying papers from last year’s graduates. That’s what people are doing with Christianity. We want to be saved but we don’t want the effort of living right. God will expect you to write your own term paper even though it was Christ who ultimately passed every test for you. Let me explain: I am not saying that a Christian has to get resaved over and over because they made a mistake. Most believers are sincere and repent when they sin. But I am saying that the Bible is clear: A person who was once saved can apostacize or fall away from God’s grace. It happens when a Christian know-

ingly and openly violates God’s Word and refuses to turn from sin. It happens when a believer chooses a lifestyle that is in open defiance to God. God is merciful and gives even the worst backslider time to repent, but if that person won’t reconcile with God, they will be lost. I wish it were not true. I wish all that believe on Christ, no matter of their actions, could be saved. But I cannot reconcile that with the Bible. Let me show you why. Here are the reasons why Christians must be discipled and taught to live free from sin. First, Christ will judge His own people and separate those that are just from those that perform iniquity. (Matt 13:41-42, 1 Peter 4:17-18) Second, God has promised to take vengeance upon those that will not obey the Gospel. (2 Thes 1:7-9)

Thirdly, without holiness no man will see the Lord. (Heb 12:14) Fourth, all those that name the Name of Christ must turn from sin. (2 Tim 2:19) Fifth, we cannot turn grace into lasciviousness, which by definition is denying Jesus Christ. ( Jude 4) Sixth, if we willfully sin after we’ve been saved there is no other sacrifice for sins and would be judged in a manner more severe than those under Moses’ Law. (Heb 10:26-29) And the list could go on. Please do not misunderstand me. It’s often difficult to convey emotion in a short article. My goal is not to go on a spiritual witch hunt. My goal is to lovingly express God’s will for His people. We are not to look upon the sin in the lives of others; we are to examine ourselves and turn from the sin in our own lives.

According to the National Institute of Corrections (NIC), the number one way to reduce an individual’s chance of recidivism is employment. Reducing recidivism through increasing employment not only reduces county costs accrued through incarceration, but it also increases public safety, and adds back to the local tax base.

Lost places: Hog’s Back, continued from pg 1 the edge of Hog’s Back for a Hollywood movie, an event that was reportedly witnessed by several thousands people. According to Taylor, the remains of the car were down at the bottom of the gorge for quite a few years. However, in Taylor’s book, The Chautauqua Gorge, it is reported that there doesn’t seem to be any truth to the story, but that cars were pushed over the side for several years as a tourist attraction. The Mayville Sentinel’s Chamber of Commerce Edition stated in 1927 that “Hog’s Back is the Mecca of thousands of motorists and hikers each year and strangers who do not visit this scenic wonder will miss

During the last two years exhibitions of sending a driverless automobile over the cliff attracted thousands from near and far.” With the start of World War II, it is said that attendance dropped off to almost nothing and the golf course closed in 1942. After World War II, the Hog’s Back regained some popularity as a place to picnic and hike. Legend of the Lost Gold and Deadman’s Curve According to Taylor, a woman who owned a nearby grocery and souvenir shop first wrote about the legend of the lost gold in 1921. In one of the

many versions of the lost gold tale, French soldiers who were carrying payroll got lost in the gorge and stashed their gold in a cave near Hog’s Back, when they became trapped by inclement weather. The pair finally found their way out, but when returned, they couldn’t find the location of the lost gold. Searching for the cave was said to be an ongoing pastime for a few people. To this day, Taylor says that he and officials at Patterson Library and at McClurg Museum in Westfield are asked about a map to the lost gold. When asked if the legend has any validity, he responded, “I have no idea; there’s a lot of people that really believe it’s out there.” McClurg Museum Curator, John Wolfe, however, dismisses the tale. A nearby gorge site (closer to Westfield) was dubbed “Dead man’s curve”, due to the danger it presented to motorists. At an observation area near the current Gale Street, early cars would pick

‘Lightspeed’ to Your Living Room DFT Communications brings high speed fiber services to the home Contributed Article DFT Communications

DFT Communications has always prided itself on being innovative and pivotal in supplying new services to the residents of Chautauqua County. Being on the cutting edge is crucial in a technologically-based business, and DFT is continually fulfilling a leadership role in providing new and improved service to its customers. In 2012, DFT introduced “Lightspeed,” the first in a series of Fiber to the Home projects. Lightspeed launched in the West Town of Dunkirk, and consists of over 40,000 feet of fiberoptic cable. “Fiber to the Home was a huge undertaking for DFT, in terms of the concept and investment,” said Kate Morrison, Product Development Coordinator. “While we have a fiber network that is unrivaled in Chautauqua County, it is primarily a business network. Bringing that network to the home is new.” Fiber is not necessarily a new technology, but its implementation has been consistently growing for more than a decade. Traditional high-speed internet, like DSL or cable, can usually hit around 18 megabytes per second (Mbps) download speed, but the upload speeds hovering around 1 Mbps often leave the user wanting. That’s where fiber excels. “Fiber can easily have upload speeds twenty to thirty times that of traditional high speed,” said Morrison. “Currently our lowest upload speed is 3 Mbps. up speed on the incline, and if they failed to make it around the first curve, they would land in Little Chautauqua Creek. If they failed to make the second curve, they crashed into the gorge. “Most people made it, but many people also died there,” says Taylor. Taylor also said that Native Americans often used Chautauqua Creek (at the bottom of the gorge) as a route between Chautauqua

Our highest offered now is 24 Mbps, and it can only go up from there.” DFT is facing the daunting job of providing ever-increasing speeds to an evergrowing demand for faster internet, but the company is up to the task. “It’s all about bandwidth. We see a lot of demand for more than just downloading,” said Morrison. “Uploading activities are on the rise - digital photography sharing, gaming, etc. These are all trends that, while the activity has always been there, the need for faster upload speeds is becoming far more prevalent.” The best part about Lightspeed fiber to the home is that users don’t need to change anything on their computers to take advantage of the new service. Lightspeed connects directly to the Ethernet port already present on nearly all modern computers, and DFT can provide a router to make the whole home wireless. “It used to be that you have the ‘family computer,’” said Morrison. “Now, everybody has a computer or smart phone or tablet- or all three. A wireless router gives the flexibility for everyone to have high speeds.” High speeds aren’t the only perk of fiber to the home. The service is priced so a switch from regular high speed should be as easy as a phone call to DFT. “Our top package- which has download speeds of 24 Mbps and upload speeds of 12 Mbps costs about the same as traditional high speed options,” said Morrison. DFT has other plans

that include data and voice, and specials for discounted service for the first three months. The ultimate goal of the Fiber to the Home project has been not only a business promotion, but a community promotionsomething DFT is familiar with. “Community is important to DFT,” said Morrison. “Yes, this was an investment, but it wasn’t just about money. It’s about making our community better. These types of services are what help communities grow, and that’s something that is very important to us as a company.” DFT is continuing that commitment to growth, this time in the south county. They are currently building out 40,000 feet of fiber from the center of Falconer through Allen St.a project which began in April of 2013. For more information on Fiber to the Home, or to see if service is available in your area, call DFT Communications today at 673-3000. DFT Communications is a 115 year old company offering local and long distance telephone service; Internet; digital phone service (VoIP); residential and commercial security systems; call center services; business telephone systems; satellite television; communications and data networking services; fiber and copper wiring solutions; computer repair; computer, television and electronic retail sales and electrical contracting services.

Lake and Lake Erie. “Native Americans were still visiting the area in the late 1930s and 1940s; I’ve talked to people that actually remember Native Americans coming through.” As reported in The Chautauqua Gorge, “gradually interest began to wane and fewer people frequented the area (Hog’s Back). By the 1960s cars would drive in and stop at the short road that went back to the top of

the gorge. Here there was a small box on a post which people were suppose to drop money in to cover the cost of admission. The cost of insurance to cover the attraction kept rising and the current owners decided to close it down in the mid 1970s.” Few people now know where the entrance use to be and it is no longer open to the public.

chautauqua lake choral Students perform in new York city

Singers from Chautauqua Lake Central School show their excitement to be in New York City, where on March 25 they performed at Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center, in a work conducted by composer Rene Clausen.

Contributed Article CLCS

A group of Chautauqua Lake student musicians performed on March 25 at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center, the home of the New York Philharmonic. Eleven singers from Chautauqua Lake joined with six other choirs to perform The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere, composed and conducted by René Clausen. Clausen’s five movements have been described as invoking the “excitement of the horse ride as well as the quiet of the streets, the beauty of the night, the history of the rickety old bell tower, and the breathless excitement as the message is delivered.” The opportunity was arranged through Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY). Music teacher Jennifer Davis researched performance opportunities last summer and decided to pursue the Clausen concert in New York City. She was familiar with DCINY, because in 2010 she and her friend Rachel Curtin had participated in their concert version of Eric Whitacre’s musical, Paradise Lost: Shadows and Wings. She submitted a recording of the secondary school chorus for review, and the choir was accepted into the program. Then the performance opportunity was presented to chorus members. The students who chose to participate – all members of the select Chorale -- began preparing the piece in January, often practicing after school but also working on their own at home. The Chautauqua Lake Music Boosters subsidized the trip by paying the registration fee for each performer. The individual students and their families paid for travel, lodging and other expenses. Davis and school nurse Peg Kelwaski accompanied the students to New York. “There were so many wonderful things about this trip,” commented Davis, “but what I loved most was the fact that we were in New York City to rehearse and perform. Rehearsals were typically four hours a day, which is long, but it left us with enough free time to take advantage of all the culture and excitement New York has to offer.” In addition to preparing and performing the Clausen piece, the group attended a full concert of works by Eric Whitacre at

Carnegie Hall; took in a performance of The Phantom of the Opera, which recently celebrated 25 years on Broadway; and visited the Museum of Natural History, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Empire State Building. Some of the group also shopped at Mood Designer

Fabrics, popularized by the television series Project Runway. “The best part of the trip for me was singing at Avery Fisher Hall,” reported junior Mariana Mathewson. “Working with Dr. Clausen was amazing, and knowing continueD on pG 13

Willow Bay Theater, Arts Council For Chautauqua County and Reg Lenna Civic Center are teaming up to present a series of theater workshops for the continuation of education in theater arts. Geared toward actors from their teens through adulthood, these workshops will help you develop characters through movement, voice, action and song. Whether you¹re a performer preparing for a college program or a veteran of regional theater, you’ll find these workshops to be beneficial to the work you do on stage. The series opens May 4 at 11 a.m. with “Physical Characterization” ($35) at the Reg Studio Theater. Elmira College’s John Kelly will present this hour-long workshop intended to supplement traditional actor training. This hands-on experience seeks to employ concepts of Asian theatre, the work of Michael Chekhov, and the use of body centers to introduce participants to

other tools employed by performers in their craft. “Physical Characterization” will be followed by a one hour Q&A for students interested in studying college theater. The Reg Studio Theater is located at 108 East Third Street in Jamestown. At 7 p.m. in the same space, Kelly and his Elmira theater students will present a live theatrical performance. “Short and Sweet” is a collection of four short

plays, two dramas and two comedies, created to be performed by and for young adults in almost any setting. “Mandala” tells of four young women seeking to come to terms with the loss of friends due to texting while driving. “Tim, Dirk, and Haley” follows an odd threesome as they shoot ducks photographically speaking. “Choices” concerns two young women’s life choices at the beginning of their

college careers, while “Ohio Navy” is merely an inspired bit of farce. These plays, directed by a first year student, an advanced student, an alumna, and a faculty member, provided needed opportunities for our actors to spread their wings onstage while entertaining audiences in an unusual, off-off-broadway Café La Mama style setting. “Short And Sweet” is offered free of charge and is open to the public. The workshop series will continue with “Stage Combat” in July, “Songwriting For Stage and Song Interpretation” in the fall, “Voice And Speech” in January of 2014 and “Storytelling Through Song” in the winter/spring of 2014. Instructors include Steve Vaughan of Buffalo State University and SUNY Fredonia, Shawn Clerkin of Gannon University and Broadway veterans, John Reid Gealt and Tituss Burgess.

The Jamestown boys and girls track and field teams ran, jumped and threw their way to first-place finishes, Saturday at the Southwestern Early Bird Invitational. It wasn’t exactly an ideal day for competition. Temperatures hovered in the 30s with the occasional snowflake even making its way to the ground. The elements didn’t seem to damper the spirits of the athletes, however, as everyone geared up for the first big meet of the season. “An invitational is a good way to start,” Frewsburg coach Tom O’Brien said. “You get a chance to see where you are at and what

you need to do to meet your season’s goals. “I thought Southwestern did a great job of moving the meet along despite the weather,” he added. On the girls’ side, the Lady Red Raiders won with 194 total points. Southwestern was second at 146 followed by Clymer (64), Chautauqua Lake (58), Frewsburg (42) and Cassadaga Valley (9). Jamestown also took first in the boys’ meet with 149 points. Clymer was close behind at 126.5 followed by Southwestern (115), Chautauqua Lake (49.5), Frewsburg (45) and Cassadaga Valley (28). The Lady Red Raiders were aided by a pair of double winners. Kimberly Lindquist was untouchable in the middle distance

with first-place fi nishes in the 800 meters (2:29.69) and the 1,500 meters (5:14.23). Teammate Adriana Roehmholdt was right behind Lindquist in both events. Roehmholdt was second in the 800 (2:35.88) and fourth in the 1,500 (5:34.29). Jamestown’s other double winner was Ana Torres, who found great success in the field events. Torres placed first in the long jump with a leap of 15 feet-3 inches, first in the triple jump (32-3) and fourth in the high jump (4-8). The Jamestown throwers also had a nice afternoon with Patricia Keller taking first place in the discus with a toss of 92-9 and second in the shot put (27-3) — an event won by freshman teammate Keiona Nance with a heave of 27-5.

The Lady Trojans had a trio of standout performances. Brittany Feldman showed her versatility with first-place finishes in both the high jump (5-0) and the 400 meters (1:02.46); Diamond Fedrick took first in the 200 meters (:32.29) and second in the high jump (4-10); and Emily Kent took first in the 3,000 meters (11:52.79) and third in the 1,500 (5:25.28). Other individual first-place fi nishes were recorded by Jamestown’s Orianne Simon (100 meters - :13.92), Cienna Simon (100 meter hurdles - :16.01) and Rachel Oelbrecht (400 meter hurdles – 1:12.67).

tHe LoB Wedge is Not my frieNd

By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

qua My golfer’s diary will follow my

D i a ry

golf outing(s) for the week. I’ll look at how course conditions, weather, equipment, playing partners, etc. affect the game we love. Please n, keep in mind that I only started golfing last year, so yes, my scores are hardly that of a scratch golfer. But that’s what makes golf great: qua You don’t have to be a zero handicap to enjoy the game. I know it’s only the second time out this year, but boy do I hate pulling out that 60˚ lob wedge. Monday was an absolutely gorgeous day and prompted ga lots of golf talk in the office. Luckily for me, I was able to get out and play nine holes. I once again went to Sugar 30 Hill Golf Course in Westfield, where it was much warmer than last week. The greens were freshly cut and the sun was shining — which should have equaled a nice score at the end of the round, but unfortunately it didn’t. Let me say something ins about Sugar Hill: The people there are always exkins tremely friendly. From the first time I set foot in there Greg and his family treated

me like a regular. Now that I am somewhat of a regular, I get treated like an old friend. That’s the kind of environment that makes golf even more enjoyable. The day started off wonderfully. I teed off with my hybrid because I can’t intentionally hit a draw around the tree line that makes the first hole very interesting, but my lay up was just great. I’ve played this hole probably 10-15 times since I first picked up a golf club last year and have never even made par. So when I reached the green in four and actually had a look at par, you can imagine my excitement. Well I should have realized it was going to be ‘one of those days’ when my par putt stopped probably two grass widths from the hole. It was one of those ‘Are you too good for your home?” Happy Gilmore moments. My good friend Bryan (who just celebrated his 25th birthday) played the hole like I usually do and duffed a couple shots on his way to a double-bogey. Don’t worry though, he’d get the last laugh. In fact, he only one-putted so I should have

seen my demise coming. Hole No. 2 requires a pretty decent drive over water. My first day out I tried to lay up and still hit my ball into the water, so on this day with the wind calmed down to almost nothing, I was brought out the boom stick. I absolutely teed off on the ball and cleared the water by plenty. Bryan actually hit his drive straighter, farther and right down the middle of the fairway — arguably the best drive I’ve seen him hit. With the green easily reachable in two, I hit a 7-iron just as clean as can be. Unfortunately my ball decided (on its own accord, of course) to hit an overhanging tree branch and bounce completely sideways, giving me a total distance of about nine feet. It led to a double-bogey. The first par 3 is where the wheels fell off thanks to my mortal enemy — the lob wedge. I hit a nice tee shot that landed just short of the green. Thanks to what we like to call a ‘weak baby’ shot, and then a burner, I turned an easy par into another double bogey. I wasn’t done messing up

with my lob wedge. On hole 7 I ended up with a tree directly between my ball and the pin. Could I have pulled out a 4-iron and punched it on? Yes, probably. But I decided to get über aggressive and try to get over said tree. Can you guess what happened? Yup, I hit about 90 percent of the way up the tree and it fell right in front of me. Believe it or not, that was probably my best lob wedge shot on that hole. I hit two more ‘weak babies’ and ended up eating a snowman on the hole. It didn’t taste good if you’re wondering. Putting was again an issue for me, but again I’m not worried. It was my biggest strength last year and seeing as how I lipped one putt and left three more within three inches short of the hole, I can take some positives out of how I rolled the ball. We entered the last hole tied, but Bryan beat me by one stroke on No. 9 to take the first game of the season-long series.

Ironmen Defenseman Commits To UMass Boston Contributed Article Jamestown Ironmen

Another Jamestown Ironmen player will be extending his hockey career to the college ranks. Matt Lanzillotti, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound defenseman from Lake Bluff, Illinois recently committed to play college hockey at the University of Massachusetts Boston. The UMass Boston Beacons Men’s Hockey program finished the 2013 season ranked No. 14 in the Division III national polls. “I am really excited, mainly because it is a great hockey city,” said Lanzillotti of the Boston area. In a recent visit to the school, he had an opportunity to tour campus and meet the staff. “It’s a great setting on the South side of Boston. Everyone there was welcoming and encouraging.” “Matt has an impressive stature and has done everything we’ve asked of him since he has been here,” said Ironmen head coach Dan Daikawa about the player in which he acquired through trade very early in the season. “He has a very bright future in college hockey.” Lanzillotti has scored a pair of goals, tallied nine assists and added great quality to the Ironmen defense in 53 games played this season. The 20 year old has enjoyed his time

NAHL playoffs continued from pg 1

“We played a good game,” Ironmen head coach Dan Daikawa said. “We got a little loose and let them sneak a goal in, but responded well and did enough to win.” Daikawa’s squad will now advance to the North Division Finals, where they will take on the winner of the other semifinal series between the Soo Eagles and the Port Huron Fighting Falcons. The top seeded Eagles lead the series, 2-0 with Game 3 in Port Huron tonight at 7 p.m. In its next playoff series, Jamestown will have an opportunity to play for a North Division title along with a bid to the Robertson Cup Championship. Each NAHL division (Central, North, South, West) will crown a champion, giving them the chance to travel to Frisco, Texas to battle for the NAHL Championship. “From the start of the season, we wanted to make the playoffs,” Daikawa explained. “For us the ‘big picture’ has now shifted to playing in the Robertson Cup, and this past series was just a hurdle on our way there. We will enjoy our victory tonight, head back to Jamestown and refocus.” Burger King, Cable Hollow The Jamestown Ironmen had taken a 2-0 series lead Golf Course, Caitlyn Ellsover the Kalamazoo Jr. worth, Chautauqua Brick, K-Wings with a 3-1 win on Comfort Inn, Diamond Saturday.

plied a simple answer. “Ballmer was the difference,” Daikawa said without hesitation of his 6-foot-3, 210 lb. goaltender. Despite being outshot, 30-29, Jamestown’s Joey Ballmer made 29 saves in the victory, adding to his game one performance of 33 saves on 34 shots. “It wasn’t our best performance, but in the end we did what we had to in order to win,” Daikawa added. “I’m excited because we have given ourselves an opportunity to win one in Kalamazoo and finish them off.” On Friday, the Ironmen opened their postseason with a convincing, 7-1 victory over the Wings. In the franchise’s first ever playoff appearance dominated in front of an enthusiastic ‘Pink the Rink’ crowd. Fans came out to support the team as well as WCA breast cancer care and the Links Charity. “The fan support was great, for our players and for a good cause,” Daikawa said. After leading the regular season series with Kalamazoo, 6-2, Jamestown didn’t waste any time and got off to a great start, taking a quick 3-0 lead into the first intermission. Tyler Dunagan buried an assist from Dylan Zink to kick-start the scoring for the hometown team only 3:30 into the game. Nathan Ropelewski chipped in with an unassisted, short-handed goal while Ryan Doucet added another unassisted goal, all in the first period. It was déjà vu in the second as Jamestown matched their offensive output from the previous period, piling on three more goals. Daniel Cesarz scored 3:30 into the second and added an assist later in the period. Brett Szajner and Evan Ritt each added goals while assists were credited to Dunagan and Nico Sierra. The two teams traded goals in the third as Cesarz racked up his second goal of the game with assists from Dunagan and Sierra. “I’ll take that game any day of the week,” said a satisfied Daikawa in the locker room following the game. “Kalamazoo had some good opportunities early, but Joey made some big saves and allowed us to build up a lead.”

luxury of throwing to three exceptionally talented receivers, but as a senior, he didn’t look so hot. Unless you think Stevie Johnson, umm….. and two other guys (I honestly can’t name another Bills receiver with the departures of Donald Jones and David Nelson) count as ‘exceptional receivers’ it’s probably safe to say that Wilson wouldn’t fare too well in Buffalo. One advantage that Wilson might have over a couple of the other guys is arm strength, which is a huge asset when playing in the elements of Buffalo. Ryan Nassib, Syracuse — Despite only average height, Nassib is probably my pick for future quarterback of the Bills. Do I like him to the extent that I think the Bills should take him No. 8 overall? Absolutely not. But if they can get a top-tier linebacker or wide receiver

drafted Kirk Cousins later in the draft. I don’t have a problem with a strategy like that at all. Take Nassib and then a guy like Mike Glennon, Tyler Bray or Landry Jones in the sixth or seventh round. Okay, Glennon probably won’t make it that long, but the others might. All of this is speculative of course. Judging from the past 15 years, the Bills probably think they’re set at quarterback with Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson. They’ll continue to draft the next Aaron Maybin or Mike Williams. This team sure is hard to watch. At least a new quarterback would give fans something to look forward to.

commentary continued from pg 1 and might be able to learn quickly. The odds that he falls to the Bills are unlikely. Teams like Jacksonville, Cleveland, Philadelphia , Arizona and even Oakland have been linked to Smith and draft before Buffalo. Of course, trades are always an intriguing part of the NFL Draft, so anything could happen. Matt Barkley, USC — As far back as two years ago Barkley was a consensus No. 1 pick. Then Andrew Luck stayed in school an extra year and so did Barkley. A tumultuous senior year left Barkley’s draft stock plummeting. Still, it’s hard to ignore the physical tools and the success he’s had in the past. I’ve heard critics bring up the struggles of former USC quarterbacks Carson Palmer, Matt Leinart and Mark Sanchez, but those comparisons couldn’t be further off base. They didn’t

even have the same coach at USC as Pete Carroll has been leading the Seattle Seahawks for the past two seasons. He’s not the guy I would pick for Buffalo, but the Bills could do worse. E.J. Manuel, Florida State — At 6-foot-5, 237 pounds, Manuel is an impressive specimen, but there have been lots of guys who looked the part that couldn’t play a lick. I have a feeling Manuel is one of those guys. He just has the feel of that quarterback the mainstream media is trying to force down our throats because there’s already a concensus top guy at the position. I felt that way last year too when it was clear that Luck and Robert Griffin III would be the top two quarterbacks off the board early, but the NFL needed fans to stay interested so enter Ryan Tannehill onto the radar from nowhere. Tannehill

certainly surprised me by having some success as a rookie and maybe Manuel will too, but I’d stay away. Zac Dysert, Miami (OH) — It’s easy to drawn up the comparison to Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback and two-time Super Bowl champion Ben Roethlisberger because Dysert’s coming from the same MAC school as Big Ben, but just because you break records in college against underwhelming competition doesn’t mean it will translate to success in football at its highest level. actually has Dysert as the second-highest graded quarterback in this year’s draft, so maybe they see something that I don’t, but this is another guy I’d be happy to see suit up anywhere but Buffalo. Tyler Wilson, Arkansas — As a junior, Wilson had the

in the first round and then maybe move up a couple spots to take Nassib in the second round, I say ‘do it’. All of his shortcomings can be fixed. His footwork is a work in progress, but that’s teachable. He occasionally makes a poor read, but that’s teachable too. What’s harder to teach is his toughness, leadership and accuracy. Plus his former college coach and offensive coordinator are now leading the charge in Buffalo, so he’d have that much of an easier time adjusting. Take him now. Try him out. If he doesn’t work take another quarterback in a year or two. That’s what Buffalo does anyway, right? There are a number of other guys who might go later in the draft that Buffalo could bring in to compete with one of the preceding guys. Last year the Redskins took RG3 and still

sabres prevail in shootout against Boston By Howard Ulman AP Sports Writer

After Ryan Miller and the Buffalo Sabres pulled out a comeback win over the Bruins, they had one last gesture to mark the significance of Boston’s fi rst pro game since the marathon bombings. Players from both teams gathered at center ice and raised their sticks in a salute to the city and fans who had shouted, ‘’We are Boston’’ and ‘’USA, USA,’’ during the game. The Bruins had suggested the gesture to the Sabres before Buffalo’s 3-2 shootout win Wednesday night. ‘’Obviously, we’re more than open to something like that,’’ said Miller, the starting goalie on the U.S. Olympic team in 2010. ‘’It’s a game more about coming together and giving people here something a bit more normal today. I’m proud to be a part of it and just wanted to give a simple salute.’’ Drew Stafford scored the only shootout goal after Cody Hodgson tipped in Thomas Vanek’s pass on a power play to tie the game with 26.6 seconds left in regulation. ‘’Late in the game there we just wanted to make sure that we got pucks at the net and weren’t trying to be too fancy,’’ Sabres interim coach Ron Rolston said. But the Bruins still clinched a playoff berth by gaining one point. They are tied in points with Montreal atop the Northeast Division, but have one game in hand on the Canadiens. Both teams trail Eastern Conferenceleading Pittsburgh by nine points. There was a pregame period of silence and a slideshow of scenes from the Boston Marathon in which three people died and more than 170 were wounded when two bombs went off near the fi nish

line on Monday. Veteran Bruins anthem singer Rene Rancourt sang the fi rst few words

then went silent and directed the fans in a fullthroated rendition. ‘’It was extremely emo-

tional,’’ Boston’s Brad Marchand said. ‘’I was fighting back tears.’’ The 10th-place Sabres, who beat Philadelphia and Tampa Bay last weekend, are fighting to get into playoff position. They are two places and two points below the postseason cutoff, but have only four games to go. ‘’We have a chance to just write our own story,’’ Miller said. ‘’We have to win our own hockey games and maybe get some help along the way. Tonight we helped ourselves a little bit and we still have games against teams ahead of us (in the standings).’’ There was heightened security at TD Garden where cars entering the garage were searched, and fans were checked with wands and patted down. ‘’We wanted to go out there and win that hockey game. I’m disappointed that we didn’t,’’ Kelly said. ‘’We wanted to give the city something to be happy about.’’ Boston moved into second place in the Eastern Conference with 57 points and six games left. The Canadiens, who lost to Pittsburgh earlier Wednesday, have five games remaining. The Bruins had been scheduled to play at home against the Ottawa Senators on Monday night. But less than five hours before the game was to start, the bombs exploded. That game was postponed and rescheduled for April 28. In the shootout, Tyler Seguin, Patrice Bergeron and Marchand missed for Boston. Buffalo’s fi rst two shooters, Vanek and Nathan Gerbe, also were stopped before Stafford beat Anton Khudobin. ‘’You can see the passion that they played with and the passion that the fans had,’’ Hodgson said. ‘’I thought that we had to rise to the occasion.’’ Bruins coach Claude Julien wants the passion to be present for every game. ‘’It’s not about trying to make this city proud of your team tonight, but every night,’’ he said. Paille beat Miller after Kelly passed the puck from the left corner. Paille lifted it from about 5 feet into a narrow space between the near post and Miller’s right shoulder. The crowd cheered: ‘’Let’s go Boston. We are Boston.’’ Vanek tied the game when he tipped Christian Ehrhoff’s shot from just in front of the blue line past Khudobin. Then Kelly and Paille teamed up again. Paille had the puck in the left corner and passed it across the slot. Kelly shot it over the left pad of Miller, who had sprawled to try to stop Paille’s pass. NOTES: Bruins scoring leader Marchand, and Bergeron, who is tied for second on the team in points, returned from concussions. Marchand missed two games. Bergeron sat out six. ... Vanek had three goals and two assists in Boston on Jan. 31 in a 7-4 win over the Bruins. ... Kelly’s goal was the 100th of his NHL career. ... Players from both teams wore ‘’Boston Strong’’ decals on their helmets.

Send us your thoughts at 1) Chicago Blackhawks 33-5-4 A sixgame winning streak has put Chicago in position for the President’s Trophy. 2) Pittsburgh Penguins 32-10-0 It’s astounding that this team still hasn’t lost in overtime or a shootout. 3) Anaheim Ducks 27-10-5 A spot in the Western Conference Finals no longer looks like a sure thing. 4) Montreal Canadiens 26-11-5 An ugly 7-3 loss to nothing-to-play-for Philly could be a major blow to their confidence. 5) Boston Bruins 24-14-5 Who else is drooling over the prospect of a Bruins-Maple Leafs first-round matchup? 6) Washington Capitals 24-17-2 Welcome back: Ovechkin officially leads the NHL is goals scored once again. 7) Vancouver Canucks 24-12-7 Home games against Chicago and Anaheim this week should be telling. 8) Los Angeles Kings 24-15-5 Champs are in a dogfight with San Jose for home ice advantage in first round of playoffs. 9) San Jose Sharks 23-13-7 Tuesday’s win over LA was huge, but no room for a letdown in wild West. 10) Toronto Maple Leafs 24-14-5 Phil Kessel’s next game will be the 500th of his very productive young career. 11) Minnesota Wild 24-16-3 Five different players scored in Tuesday’s 5-3 win over the fading Oilers. 12) St. Louis Blues 24-16-2 Head coach Ken Hitchcock won his 600th career game with a 2-1 victory over Canucks. 13) Ottawa Senators 22-14-6 Sens have followed up a horrible losing skid with a threegame streak to save playoff lives. 14) New York Islanders 22-16-5 A fivegame road trip to close the season will either make or break these young Islanders. 15) Columbus Blue Jackets 20-16-7 Four of five remaining games are on the road where CBJ is a miserable 7-11-2 this year. 16) Detroit Red Wings 20-15-7 Conversely, Detroit closes with a three-game home set chasing that 8th seed. 17) Winnipeg Jets 22-19-2 Ratings alert: How badly does the league want the Rangers to get in over the Jets? 18) New York Rangers 21-17-4 With Lundquist in goal, there’s no reason NY couldn’t make some noise as an eight seed. 19) Dallas Stars 21-18-3 An admirable five-game winning streak ended in Chicago Monday. Season probably did too. 20) Buffalo Sabres 18-19-6 Even after the trades, this team has played hard for interim coach Ron Rolston. 21) Philadelphia Flyers19-21-3 Playing spoiler, the Flyers have knocked off rival Canadiens and Rangers this week. 22) Phoenix Coyotes 18-17-7 You have to point to the power play (26th in NHL) as the reason they’re 11th in the West. 23) Tampa Bay Lightning 17-22-4 Make no mistake, there’s a huge drop off between Phoenix and the last eight teams. 24) Edmonton Oilers 16-19-7 The current six-game skid has erased any playoff hopes and angered the fan base. 25) Calgary Flames 16-22-4 They have a chance to play spoiler with games against Detroit, Minnesota and St. Louis. 26) Carolina Hurricanes 17-23-2 Is it good when a team goes 2-14-1 down the stretch? No, I didn’t think so. 27) Colorado Avalance 14-22-7 Yeah they’re absolutely terrible, but at least they aren’t mailing in a lost season. 28) Florida Panthers 13-23-6 Maybe the first overall pick will help ease the sting of going first-to-worst in the Southeast. 29) Nashville Predators 15-21-8 If they had salvaged 4 wins during their 7-game skid, the Preds would playoff-bound. 30) New Jersey Devils 15-17-10 Outscored 29-16 while losing 10 in a row. Somebody better be losing their job in Jersey.

How to Make Your Garden More Environmentally Friendly Contributed Statepoint Spring is here, which means it’s time to slip those green thumbs into some gardening gloves. And if you want to feel truly good about what you grow, consider upgrading your garden to be more planet-friendly. Here are some ideas to consider: Grow Your Own Dinner Grow the vegetables, herbs and flowers that you would normally purchase for your dinner and floral arrangements. Local is more sustainable because it reduces

the carbon footprint associated with transport. And you can’t get more local than your own backyard!

Encourage Pollination Pollination is crucial for agricultural production and the health of the ecosystem. Unfortunately, many pollinating insects are highly susceptible to environmental changes and have in recent years, suffered major population decline. You can help local pollinators thrive by planting a variety of native species of varying colors and shapes and reducing your use of pesticides.

Be Bird-Friendly No garden is truly complete without regular visits from birds. Encourage flying visitors by installing a feeder and bird bath.

According to a study published in the Wilson Journal of Ornithology, billions of birds die annually worldwide from collisions with windows. So if you’re going to send out the

Without affecting the appearance of your home, you can make your windows safer for birds by applying static-cling decals. For example, WindowAlert creates decals that look like frosted glass to people, but brilliantly reflect UV light for birds. To create a complete visual barrier, consider filling in the gaps between decals with UV Liquid dots which are invisible to humans, but visible to birds. More information on preventing bird collisions can be found at www.

Compost By composting, you will not only reduce your home’s overall waste, you’ll also create a rich soil that can be used in your garden to cultivate plants naturally. Be careful what you compost, however. Sawdust from chemically treated wood, diseased plants, and even walnuts, when composted, can create soil that’s hazardous to both plants and people. This spring, make your garden the envy of the neighborhood for more than just its beauty. With a few easy tweaks, you can reduce your family’s waste and create a safe haven for birds and pollinators.

Tips to Start Composting for Your Garden Contributed StatePoint

than ever and composting is a huge part of this movement.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a gardening novice trying to supplement your dinner table with some homegrown veggies or an entrepreneur that earns a living off the land, composting is a simple way to go green and help save the environment. You don’t have to be an environmentalist to compost, either. Compost, which is organic matter that has been decomposed and recycled and used for fertilizing soil, is great for your garden and will help reduce landfill waste. In addition, composting in your home garden will help you save money.

Markham, who also has written the bestselling “Mini Farming: Self-Sufficiency on 1/4 Acre” as well as mini farming guides to fermenting and vegetable gardening, offers these gardening tips to get started on composting: “Using compost means your garden will be more cost-effective because you will have to spend less on fertilizers, insecticides, and fungicides for a given harvest of any crop,” says Brett L. Markham, author of “The Mini Farming Guide to Composting,”

the latest in his Mini Farming book series. Across the country people are embracing the concept of selfsufficiency and preparedness, “mini farming” anywhere, from rooftop urban gardens to suburban backyards to larger land plots. Growing food is easier

• Composting is a natural form of recycling, so use food waste, grass clippings, coffee grounds and even paper as compost. Just be sure to shred the paper first to speed up the process. • Start your compost pile in a convenient spot, and make sure it is semi-shaded and well-drained. • Add bulking agents such as wood chips to accelerate the breakdown of organic materials, allowing the finished material to fully stabilize and mature through a curing process. Add leaves, straw, or hay along with grass clippings or green manures for plenty of bulk. Each layer should be no more than two inches so that the grass clippings or leaves don’t get matted down to form a layer impermeable to air. • Keep the compost moist. Either water it yourself or let rain take care of it. The

compost should be moist, but not soaked. • Cover the compost pile to help retain moisture and heat. This will also help prevent the

Composting can help improve the quality of your garden. compost from being over-watered by the rain. • Turn the compost pile with a shovel or a fork to aerate the pile. It is important to water the pile as you turn it

as well. Turning the pile adds oxygen to the compost which is necessary to get the most out of your pile. • Once you add the compost to your garden, you’ll be ready to start planting in two to five weeks! You can learn more about composting, mini farming, and self-sufficiency at www.MarkhamFarm. com/mainsite.   Composting is the first easy step to helping the environment while growing your own food. So make the most out of your garden, and start digging!

New technology allows users to control their irrigation and lighting from the comfort of their computer. Contributed StatePoint If it feels as though your entire weekends are spent mowing, trimming and watering your lawn, there are steps you can take to speed up your lawn care routine. Automate How many times have you forgotten to water your lawn -- or worse yet, over-watered it? You can eliminate the guesswork (and the grunt work of dragging hoses around your yard) by installing an automatic sprinkler and drip irrigation system that is based on your specific landscape, characteristics and geographical region. A well-designed system ensures peak efficiency, which means you’re

only watering your lawn when necessary. This is great for your grass and plants -- and for your pocketbook. New technologies are making it even easier to optimize a watering plan for your lawn, as they can be controlled from the comfort of your computer or from a handheld remote you can take into your backyard. For example, the Irritrol PCW Control system is a software system that allows you to set up an irrigation calendar for different areas of your property. This smart technology can even connect to the Internet and retrieve the day’s weather for your zip code, and change watering time and frequency accordingly. Homeowners can visit www.irritrol. com to learn more.

Maintain Your Equipment Keeping your mower properly maintained will save you time all season long. For walking mowers, a good maintenance routine is as follows: • Carefully check blades for sharpness. • Make sure the cutting deck is clear of clippings. Cooking spray on the underside of the deck will make a new mower easier to clean. • Check pull cords to ensure they aren’t frayed. • Check that attachments are connected and working properly. • If you use your mower infrequently, fill the tank

• Periodically change the oil and perform air filter maintenance.

clumps of clippings that lie on top of the lawn, slower decomposition, and a less attractive, bristly appearing lawn

Less is More It’s tempting to cut the grass as frequently as do your neighbors. But where mowing is concerned, less is more. You can prevent weeds from taking over your lawn by letting your grass grow out a bit, as longer grass supports a deeper root system. If you cut more than one-third of the grass length, you will have

Keeping grass longer also allows it greater surface area to carry out photosynthesis, which results in healthier plants. In addition, taller grass grows slower than shorter grass. You can use this fact to eliminate up to 20 percent of the mowing you do annually, an average savings of about eight hours a year, not to mention the savings of gasoline and

wear on equipment. When you do cut the grass, be sure you’re using great time saving equipment. A model with great maneuverability will give you greater control around landscaping and obstacles. With all that time saved working on your lawn, you’ll have more time to kick back, relax and simply enjoy your lawn instead.

Contributed StatePoint Cleaning your home from top to bottom this spring? Do so with care. From falls off ladders to muscle pain, heavyduty chores can be

hazardous to your health and wellness if you’re not careful. So before you roll up your sleeves and get into the thick of it, take a moment to review some essential safety precautions:

Avoid Outdoor Mishaps When mowing the lawn, wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes. Clear your lawn of stones, toys and other potentially hazardous debris before you begin, to prevent flying objects. Keep children away from your yard

If you thought joint pain was just something you had to live with…

Treat Muscles Right From lawn work to scrubbing floors, unusual repetitious motions can really take a toll, resulting in muscle pain or bruising. Treat your spring clean like a workout and stretch your major muscle groups before you get started. When lifting those boxes in your basement and any other objects with heft, bend at the knees to avoid throwing your back out. If a chore is causing you pain, stop what you’re doing.

“Start out slowly to avoid placing a sudden demand on your muscles that are not use to this activity,” says Anne Meyer, MD who focuses on sports rehabilitation medicine. If you feel stiff or sore after a long day of reaching, bending and lifting, Dr. Meyer recommends minimizing physical activity, elevating an injured arm or leg, and treating the first sign of muscle pain by applying a quick absorbing topical muscle pain reliever like Arnicare Gel. Instead of masking pain, this homeopathic medicine works naturally with the body to relieve muscle pain and stiffness, as well as swelling from injuries and bruising. Pain management tips can be found at www.arnicare. com, where coupons are available to save $1.00 on pain relievers.

Remember to take frequent breaks. And end your long day with a relaxing bath. Clean Safely Cleaning products can be extremely stringent, causing irritation to your eyes, nose and throat. If opting for natural alternatives, such as vinegar or lemons is not an option, use the harsher stuff with care. Open all windows when using harsh cleaning products, especially ammonia. Wear gloves and consider protecting your nose and mouth with a surgical mask. Place products out of reach when you’re not using them if you have pets or small children. By following a few safety measures, you can make your spring clean a rejuvenating experience.

But with spring, comes spring cleaning. And if the thought of pulling out mops, buckets and brooms brings on more stress than serenity, remember that a few tricks and some great tunes can make cleaning easier and perhaps even fun. Set the Mood There are work playlists, workout playlists -why not a cleaning playlist? Put together some of your favorite, preferably upbeat tunes to motivate you while you’re working and keep that music playing when you’re moving from room to room.

Give your nose some sensory motivation too. Spray a fresh clean scent to remind you of what’s to come when the work is done.

While the task of cleaning accumulated splatters and stuck-on food residue from of heavy winter cooking can sound overwhelming, there are cleansers that can make the sprucing process a lot less labor-intensive.

diYers: How to eXtend tHe liFe oF Your tools Contributed Statepoint Birds are chirping, flowers are blooming and do-it-yourselfers are kicking their home improvement projects into high gear. At the heart of any handy job in or around the house is a high-quality set of tools. “Even great tools won’t work as well or last forever if they aren’t treated with care,” warns Chris Barker, Technical Manager at Royal Purple, a manufacturer of premium synthetic lubricants. So what can DIY-ers do to extend the life of their valuable tools? Store Properly Good organization is not just about saving time when you’re looking for the proper tool, or even

just about saving space in your garage or shed. Good organization can go a long way toward keeping tools in proper working order for longer. So never leave tools scattered about where they are susceptible to getting dinged or could be the cause of an accident. Install shelving units and invest in a quality toolbox that meets your size and portability needs. Proper storage away from the elements can also protect metal tools from rust and wooden handles from rot. Be sure to clean and dry all tools before storing them and maintain a cool and dry climate in your workshop or garage. Maintain Regularly Use a versatile product to lubricate power tools, rollers and lawn

equipment, loosen stuck parts, preserve equipment in storage, and facilitate hand drilling, tapping and metal cutting. A longlasting lubricant means less maintenance for you. For example, Royal Purple Maxfilm, a high-film strength, multipurpose synthetic lubricant, uses their proprietary additive called Synerlec to adhere to metal parts and provide continuous protection. It is rated highly by the Handyman Club of America for performance, quality durability and effectiveness. Maintaining your tools and lawn equipment with regular lubrication will protect them against wear, rust and corrosion and can actually improve the condition of metal surfaces.

More information can be found at www. Use Correctly Most tools are designed to perform specific functions. Using the wrong tool for a job can pose a safety hazard to you and those around you. By using your equipment incorrectly, you can make the tool less effective for its intended use. Be aware, even with good maintenance habits, tools will need to be replaced over time. High-quality tools can be expensive. But with the proper care, you can keep them in good working order all season long and well into the future.
