In fact, Dick followed Jim Boltz as chair of the Theatre Management Committee and then was elected as the fi rst president of the Opera House Board of Directors. “If it wasn’t clear before, it should be now,” says Davis, “the debt of gratitude this theatre and its patrons owe the Boltzes and the Gilmans. Someone told me once that these two couples were the best ambassadors the Opera House could ever employ… and they weren’t exaggerating. They talk about the Opera House wherever they go and encourage people to visit it. They proudly brag about the theatre as if they themselves had created it… and perhaps rightly so. For more than anyone else, the Boltzes and the Gilmans are responsible for the Opera House being what it is today.”

north side Cleanup a success Contributed Article Chautauqua Opportunity

Rhodrigous Woodard, a Chautauqua County resident, always believed in being involved in the community and bringing people together. In October of 2013, he participated in a meeting with a federal representative of Chautauqua Opportunities, Inc.’s (COI) Fatherhood Services and COI Management. During the meeting, he discussed his idea of community engagement and creating a neighborhood project. He felt that Jamestown’s North side neighborhood would be a good target for the project. Over the next few months, Rhodrigous went door to door and had residents complete surveys that identified their concerns and needs for the community. He facilitated and participated in the Neighborhood Clean Up project on May 3. The clean up went from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Rhodrigous and seven neighborhood volunteers worked together to clean up a local residence. His hope is that this will be the beginning of a series of clean ups in an effort to beautify the neighborhood. As another effort to bring the community together, he planned a “Family Celebration” for Saturday, May 10th 2014. The purpose of the celebration was to get fathers and community members engaged and promote awareness about the project. The celebration includ-

The largest-ever public display of art created by people with disabilities at The Resource Center will be on exhibit during June at the Dykeman Young Gallery in Jamestown. The exhibit is titled "Applause" and features more than 100 works by individuals with disabilities in TRC's Creations art program. There will be 75 pieces that have never been displayed publicly. The works will be on exhibit June 3-28; exhibit hours are 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday. An opening reception will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, June 6, in the gallery, located at 100 East Second Street. “This is by far the largest and most creative exhibit the Creations art program has done yet,” said Kristen McNitt, TRC’s Art Instructor. “The artwork will be a wonderful display of color, shape, texture, and fun for all ages. This will be an exhibit that you don’t want to miss. These artists have so much to show the world and add to our community.” For this exhibit, The Resource Center is partnering with Volt Vision to do some creative things with the artwork.

Volt Vision is “making it possible for one of our sculptural installation pieces to come alive with special effects, such as lighting and sound,” Ms. McNitt said. The exact nature of the special effects won’t be revealed until the opening reception. “Working with Volt Vision has opened up a whole new outlook on how to create art in the Creations art program,” Ms. McNitt said. “Many of our artists are elated to see how all our hard work will come together for the exhibit. There is much anticipation for the opening night when

all the special effects will be seen for the first time.” The reception will feature live music, hors d'oeuvres and beverages, and a silent auction. “Don’t miss opening night!” Ms. McNitt urged. “There is sure to be an atmosphere of excitement and passion for the arts. There will be artists at the opening to share their artwork and experience in creating artwork.” While there is no charge to attend the reception or to view the exhibit during its run, donations will be accepted.

Allentown Landscape Takes Urban Approach

By Matt Wisniewski Contributing Writer

Located in the heart of Buffalo, Allentown Landscape has dedicated their bricks to building a better downtown. The location of their building is no coincidence. Owner Max Stephan says, "I'll work anywhere if the job is right. But my focus is downtown Buffalo." The SUNY Fredonia graduate opened Allentown Landscape three years ago with a specific artistic angle: "My theme is sticking more toward natural stone and reclaimed brick," says Stephan. "It's not necessarily the easiest. It's not necessarily the cheapest. But I'm taking the old material and I'm attempting to make it look very contemporary." And when he says old, he's not kidding. Stephan works with cobblestone that has

been around for nearly five centuries. "There's also a couple different kinds of Jamestown brick that are a hundred or so years old," he says. "I get materials from all over the Northeast."

While working with these older materials can be troublesome, Stephan views them as historic, and their connection to the region is often undeniable. This use of reclaimed material gives

Allentown Landscape some rustic flair, but it's the organization's continual involvement with the community that gives it its identity. Still, Max Stephan's interest in the city of Buffalo

goes beyond his work for Allentown Landscape. He's on the board of directors of the Allentown Association. He is the Director of Beautification, making cleaning up the Allentown region his business and his personal/ political interest. He knows how to drum up the support for it too. On the third Thursday of every month, he hosts something called "Litter Mob." With the help of some discounted Fat Bob's sandwiches, Stephan and a group of volunteers take to the streets, chipping away at a sizable project: the gradual cleanup of downtown Buffalo. So his involvement with the community is personal and professional. Stephan says, "What separates me from other companies is the fact that I am focused on urban property. I'm focused on downtown."

Aircraft En Route To NXNE Music Festival By Matt Wisniewski

What kind of vehicle does Aircraft drive?

Contributing Writer

Aircraft is on the move. The psychedelic surf-pop band, consisting of Buffalo natives, Justin John Smith, Tyler Skelton, James Warren and Ian Be, is beginning to have success expanding its music out of the local circuits. Most notably, the band was selected to perform at the North by Northeast Music Festival in Toronto, Canada. The festival, headlined by St. Vincent, Spoon and Juicy J, is spread over several venues for nine days. Aircraft is set to perform at the Rancho Relaxo on June 21 at 9 p.m. I had to opportunity to speak to Aircraft frontman, Justin John Smith about the band's method of transportation, their game plan for NXNE, and the occasional anxiety of traveling.

Lately Aircraft has been very active on the road. The

The Town Pants Throw Grape Escape

By Matt Wisniewski Contributing Writer

This summer, Willow Creek Winery (Silver Creek) will be doing more than waiting for their grapes to ferment. With a full season of music mapped out and a stage capable of hosting national acts, the future looks bright for the venue that has comfortably held up to 5,000 people. Their summer concert series, which includes Willowfest, Buffalove and Wild Wild Fest, kicks off on June 6th with The Grape Escape Music Festival. Founded by Vancouver based Celtic folk-rockers, The Town Pants, The Grape Escape will be a festival that primarily focuses in folk, jam, and roots. "I just want great music," says Town Pants guitarist and festival organizer, Duane Keogh. "I want people singing along and dancing all night. Good

for all ages entertainment." Unlike last year's Grape Escape, which was a single day event, this time around, the family-friendly fun will last all weekend ( June 6-8.) Keogh says, "It just makes

a little more sense to pitch a tent when you can stay for the whole weekend, rather than one night." Friday night of the festival will be headlined by The Weedrags with a set earlier in

the day by the Town Pants. Saturday will be closed out by The Town Pants with Big Leg Emma playing directly before. Saturday will also feature sets by amped up dixieland band, The Fred-


town Stompers and Erie, Pa. based, Potwhole. Sunday, the final day of the festival, will be a bit more mellow. The event will be closed out by local favorites, Honey Spine who recently added bassist Ingo Hutzenlaub. Honey Spine will play at 4:45 p.m. and earlier in the day, you can catch The Town Pants doing their third set of the weekend - a kilt-driven acoustic set of traditional numbers. The Grape Escape is The Town Pants ' first show of their summer tour, so don't miss this opportunity to send the band off with style. There's still time to get Presale tickets: 30 dollars for the weekend and 20 for a daypass. But don't wait until you arrive at the gate, because tickets are ten dollars more at the door. Keogh says, "I absolutely love our fans in that region. We've gotten great support thusfar."

Aircraft en Route to NXNE Music Festival, continued from page 10 Thanks.

Do you come at a show like that from a different angle? Do you bring out the big guns, so to speak, or is it business as usual?

Ah. Well, I feel like we are definitely coming at it differently than a normal show. We're playing with a highcaliber set of bands and there's more potential to really reach a larger audience, so we want to make sure we're really prepared, and we're doing things right, and we got our stage setup in order. So we definitely

come at it with a bit more... intensity.

Now this is a festival, but it's not your standard outdoor camping festival, right? It's more like South by Southwest. Yeah, it's all indoor stuff.

What kind of shows do you prefer? Outdoor or indoor? What's your ideal performance space? I think I prefer to perform indoors. Actually, I don't know... I guess I've just performed indoors more often,

so I'm more comfortable. It's kinda cozy. But the few outdoor performances have been really nice too. I guess it's just safer to play indoors because you won't have to battle rain. But the benefit of outdoors is the fresh air. And the sunsets. If there is one.

So what do you hope will come of your show at the Rancho Relaxo for NXNE?

I just hope we can engage a new audience that continues to follow our band. Maybe if we can be flashy enough, and obnoxious enough,

and annoying enough we can get some attention. Collect fans. Collect interest. You have some other big shows booked this summer. A few in Chautauqua County. Aside from June 7 at Zebro's, you guys are at Night Lights Music Festival and Wild Wild Fest. Are you particularly excited for anything coming up? Oh, yeah. All of them. I feel like the more interesting the venue, the more excited I am to play it. Especially if I've never played there. If I know what to expect, I usually don't look

forward to it until the day of. But, for example with Wild Wild Fest, it's something where I don't know what's going to happen, so it sticks in my mind, my imagination starts to run, and I kind of like... fantasize about what it might be like.

but now I find that same type of energy to be really exciting. And it can actually help, I think, fuel a better performance.

So God solved the issue once and for all: He made woman from one of Adam's ribs. Genesis 2:21 says, "...and he took one of (Adam's) ribs, AND CLOSED UP THE FLESH THEREOF." I think it is important to notice that God did not leave Adam wounded when He made Eve from one of his ribs. Many men today are acting like their wives are a wound. A wound is something that prevents a soldier from being effective on the battlefield. Men act as if their wives are holding them back from enjoying life. Only a man with a wicked agenda would think that way. A man who hides things from his wife is a man of poor character and despises accountability. A man who discloses all things to his wife will be spared from many sorrows.

safe summer, safe food

By Dodi Kingsfield Contributing Writer

It’s officially summertime and everyone wants to get out and enjoy the nice weather. Family parties, picnics and potluck dinners fill the summer calendar with activities where we can enjoy the tastes and delights of warm weather food: homemade potato and macaroni salads, grilled chicken and burgers, sweet desserts and confections. Combining these favorite foods with summer outdoor temperatures can be the perfect scenario for a food safety disaster if not careful when handling and serving food during this time of the year. No one wants to turn on the oven and work in a hot kitchen when the grill makes outdoor cooking a breeze and creating make ahead side dishes minimizes the kitchen time so we can enjoy more of the summer season. In order to avoid any food safety concerns during the upcoming months, the Center for Disease Control and Food Safety officials have developed four simple rules to follow and reduce the chance of making your family ill from food based contamination. The risks for bacteria contamination and growth in food increases during the summer months, so

Foods that still require cooking or have been cooked and not stored safely can be another source of foodborne illness. A clean food thermometer is an excellent tool for ensuring that foods are hot enough to kill bacterial contamination. Food stored between forty and one hundred forty degrees is in the danger zone for encouraging bacterial growth, so be sure that cooked chicken reaches over one hundred sixty five degrees before it’s ready and other meats are more than one hundred and sixty. Once hot food is hot, serve at once or keep hot for no more than two hours Nothing ruins a summer picnic more than a food-based illness caused by improper handling or storage of or one hour if it’s hotter food before serving, which can be prevented by following a few basic food safety rules. than ninety degrees outextra care in food han- dishes and utensils to don’t contaminate each before leaving.

The Downtown Jamestown Farmers Market will be expanding into the heart of downtown Jamestown when it begins its 2014 season on Thursday, June 5. Cherry Street between 3rd and 2nd streets will host the market from noon to 6 pm every Thursday through October 30. “We have been gaining a lot of momentum these past few years and the market’s growth required a bigger venue for 2014,” says, Christina King, Farmers Market Assistant at the Jamestown Renaissance Corporation, which coordinates the market. “Cherry Street provides space for more vendors and is also close to high concentrations of downtown residents and employees.” Returning this year are local farms selling fresh produce, fresh-frozen meats, cheese, eggs, goat milk fudge, and homemade baked goods. Specialty products, including locally roasted coffee, essential oils, and local wines will although be available during the 2014 season. Opening day will also mark the return of the market’s lead corporate sponsor, Univera Healthcare, as well as the launch of new programs, partnerships, and promotions. “Univera Healthcare is a strong supporter of the farm-to-table movement, delivering locally produced food to local consumers, said Art Wingerter, President of Univera Healthcare. “We’re very proud to again be the lead sponsor of the Downtown Jamestown Farmers Market.” Additional sponsors include the Gebbie Foundation, the Chautauqua County Humane Society, Hopes Windows, WRFA and the USDA Farmers Market Promo-

Contributing Writer

the road to Allegany state park for our camping weekend, we ran into several situations. So rather than saying every detail, let me just warn you of a couple of things... Make sure you don't lock your keys in the house before you are done packing your camper. If you do intend to lock your keys in the house, at least make sure your toddler doesn't have to go potty first. Do not put your children in their car seats in the car before you are done packing your camper. Husbands - don't leave your wallet

at work in the midst of leaving early to go camping. And please, by all means, do not give your child chocolate before letting them watch a movie in the back seat for an hour on a curvy, twisty road. The combination of all of these things set us back approximately two hours from our original leave time. But that's where being flexible comes in, right? When ridiculous circumstances come up in life, the best choice is to laugh. Especially if you have kids, because something ridiculous is bound to happen with a toddler involved. Did I mention that we decided to take our new dog with us? That would make our camping adventure two adults, a three-year-old boy, an eleven-monthold baby and a dog that we have had for a week. Most people would say that we were crazy for even attempting this, but I also need to mention that the in-laws were already setup at the campgrounds for backup. If this could be on everyone's checklist for camping with a baby, I would highly suggest packing a Grandma. Better yet, pack a Grandma, and then a Grandpa along with her who isn't afraid to change diapers. Then, you are guaranteed a successful camping trip. To be perfectly honest, if my in-laws, our own personal camping experts weren't already going to be there, I don't think we would

have gone. We also wouldn't have a pop-up camper. But for those of you who are brave enough to still try camping without grandparents, here are the regular old items for camping with babies. 1. Disposable bibs. I didn't know until very recently that these lifesaving products even existed, but anything that saves me extra laundry time is worth a shot! They kind that we used were called 'Bibsters,' and were about $3 for a pack of 12. We only used half of the package, as the bibs are all sturdy enough to use more than once. 2. Drop-In bottle liners. We used these with both of our boys when they were nursing, because they are supposed to be the easiest bottle transition for nursing moms. We still had the bottle set, so we just picked up a box of disposable liners, which can be tossed after use. This one purchase alone cut down on our dishes by about 30% 3. Pack n' Play. A portable crib, better known amongst parents as a pack n' play is a must, unless you are a cosleeper. This made Andrew feel like he was right at home, since he uses his pack n' play to play in on a daily basis when we are at home. 4. Playpen & Carpet. Although this may be similar to a pack n' play, a playpen is actually a larger area specifically for babies and toddlers to play in. This is where the boys spent the majority of

their playtime, keeping them out of harm. We used a green outdoor carpet underneath the playpen to make it easier for Andrew to crawl around on his little knees, and to deter him from eating rocks. 5. Comfort Items & Toys. Another thing you don't want to forget is any kind of beloved animal or blanket that your child might sleep with. If it takes batteries, be sure to pack some fresh ones or replace them before you leave. Andrew sleeps with a light-up lullaby seahorse, and we kept the one that our older son Joshua used. You can't tell the difference unless you look very closely at the worn out parts on the older one, but we keep that older one as a backup or for when the boys need to leave the house. As far as toys go, don't pack too many. Children will spend far more time on walks, exploring the grass and water than they will playing with toys. But for the ones that do make it on your trip, pack plastic toys that are easy to clean and not easily broken. We did our best to mimic the environment that our boys sleep in at home. They sleep with a fan on and lullaby music playing. Both of these helped tremendously with the noises coming from other campers around us. Hope that all of these pointers help you in your camping experiences, and thanks for reading!

Predictions Are Predictably Awful By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

I’ve had the pleasure of serving as sports editor of the Chautauqua Star for just about a year-and-a-half now. If you’ve been a consistent reader of mine (thank you, by the way), you’ll know that I love making lists and predictions. I also seem to enjoy looking back on those predictions and laugh at just how wrong they are. So, that said, let’s take a look at my 2014 Major League Baseball predictions now that we’re just about one quarter of the way through the season. Continued on pg 26

26 LoCaL sports


COMMENTARY, CONTINUED FROM PAgE 25 In the American League East, I had the Tampa Bay Rays winning the division with the defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox in second place. Well, two months into the season the Rays and Red Sox are battling it out for last place. The Rays have simply been decimated by injuries to their pitching staff while the Sox are just plain bad, as evidenced by a recent 10-game losing streak. The Yankees have also been hit by some pitching injuries, but have stayed consistent and are right there. I had the Toronto Blue Jays coming in fourth, but they currently sit in first thanks to a huge resurgence from Mark Buehrle and a May barrage from Edwin Encarnacion. If I could pick again, I’d probably go with the Yankees to win the division. I had the Detroit Tigers winning the American League Central (really went out on a limb there) and they currently own MLB’s largest division lead with a five-game lead over the Chicago White Sox. The other four teams are all separated by just

a game-and-a-half. For the Cleveland Indians and the Kansas City Royals, that’s disappointing. For the White Sox and the Minnesota Twins, that’s probably exceeding expectations. There’s almost no way the Tigers give up this lead in the weakest division in baseball. In the American League West, I simply keep picking against the Oakland A’s and they just keep making me look stupid. I picked the Texas Rangers to win this division, but no team in baseball has had more injuries to key players than the Rangers. The rotation is in shambles and Prince Fielder was just shut down for the year, too. The Los Angeles Angels are just where I thought they’d be — second place. Mike Trout isn’t tearing up the league yet, but Albert Pujols is playing his best baseball in an Angels uniform. The Seattle Mariners haven’t gotten much power from Robinson Cano, but are at .500 and are a team that could go on a run. The Houston Astros are pretty horrible again and already 11.5 games out of first. With a +100 run differential, I can’t pick

against the A’s again. The biggest surprise in the National League East is the Miami Marlins. For some reason teams keep pitching to Giancarlo Stanton and he keeps making them pay. Losing Jose Fernandez to Tommy John surgery is a huge blow to the entire sport, but the Marlins are two games over .500 as of Tuesday morning. The Braves are in first thanks to dynamic pitching but Dan Uggla and B.J. Upton’s woes continue. The Washington Nationals have no offense without Ryan Zimmerman and Bryce Harper. Adam LaRoche has missed a couple weeks already, too. The Philadelphia Philles and New York Mets both had flashes where they looked competent, but now sit at the bottom of the division.

I predicted that Nats to take the division and I think they still could if they make a trade and get their two stars back. I’m willing to bet no one in the country had the Milwaukee Brewers leading the National League Central at any time during the season. Yet thanks to improved pitching in the rotation and bullpen, they currently hold a 1.5 game lead in the Central. The St. Louis Cardinals will still win this division, like I predicted preseason. The Pittsburgh Pirates are trying to shake off a horrible start and have won five out of six. The Cincinnati Reds simply have no offense. The Chicago Cubs were the biggest lock for last place before the season and probably are even more so now. I was wrong yet again in the National League West, where the San Francisco Giants suddenly have thunder in their lineup and hold a 4.5 game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers, though, have been playing better and should challenge the Giants for the division sooner rather than later. The Colorado Rockies were my surprise pick and they haven’t disap-

pointed. They’re only five games back in the division and have one of the scariest lineups in baseball. The San Diego Padres are predictably terrible, but the Arizona Diamondbacks should be much better than their .396 winning percentage suggests. As for individual awards, I had Mike Trout winning the A.L. MVP, but so far there’s little doubt that Oakland’s Josh Donaldson would take home the hardware. The guy is the best player on a division leader; he’s hit 12 home runs; he plays incredible defense; and he’s slugging .523. Anyone who thought last season was a fluke certainly looks like a fool. The N.L. MVP is Troy Tulowitzki’s to lose. The Colorado Rockies shortstop is hitting a preposterous .378/.480/.720 with 14 home runs. Those numbers are hard to even fathom two months into the season. Oh, and he’s also the league’s best defender based on sabermetrics. The only thing that can stop him is injury, which he has a history of. I picked Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder and reigning N.L. MVP Andrew McCutchen here and he’s having a nice year again, but Tulo is a man among boys right now. The A.L. Cy Young is a tight race, but I’d have to give the nod to Detroit’s Max Scherzer, who got hit hard in his last outing but still sports a 6-1 record with a 2.59 ERA and 78 strikeouts. I predicted Seattle’s Felix

Hernandez to snag this award and he’s right there with a 6-1 record, 2.75 ERA and 74 strikeouts. I’d be remiss not to include Yankees import Masahiro Tanaka in the conversation. He might be the best of the bunch with a 7-1 record, 2.29 ERA and 79 strikeouts. All three of these guys are great and should continue their success all season. Also, expect Yu Darvish to enter the race now that he’s healthy. The N.L. Cy Young hasn’t exactly been a race recently with Clayton Kershaw taking the award easily last season. This year, however, with Kershaw missing some time with an injury, St. Louis Cardinals stalwart Adam Wainwright is my pick. He leads the league with eight wins and recently tossed a complete game, one-hit shutout. There are plenty more option, though. Johnny Cueto, Zack Greinke and Julio Teheran have all been outstanding. The Cubs’ Jeff Samardzija might be the best pitcher in all of baseball right now, but he’ll certainly be changing teams (and maybe leagues) by the All-Star break.

INEPTITUDE IS D i a ry THIS REACHINg CRITICAL MASS So just how badly did the round go? Well, it was equally horrible for both Bryan and myself, but I didn’t even add the scores. I have the scorecard in front of me as I’m writing this, but I’m still too embarrassed to add up the scores. If it helps, I don’t have anything under a five on my card while Bryan has one ‘4’ but three snowmen. I was feeling pretty good after the first hole. I had an okay drive, a great second shot, one chip and lipped out my par putt and settled for bogey. That’s not an atrocious start (though Bryan took a snowman on the first hole). On No. 2, however, I knew I was in for a long day. I hit a very short drive that stayed on the fairway and came up just

short of the green on my second shot. A horrible chip left me with a super long par putt. Well, long story short, four putts later I had a seven on my card and the day didn’t get much better. Now that I’m recalling the round, nearly all of my damage was with the putter in my hand. I simply couldn’t put the ball in the hole. I had little to no trouble getting to the green. In fact, for a bunch of the holes I was on (or within feet) of the green in two shots. I even commented during the round that the pin placements weren’t terribly difficult. I can’t explain why I putted so poorly nor put into words just how bad it was. I missed more than one two-footer. It was bad.

Bryan had the exact opposite problem. He’d take five shots to get on the green and then sink a 20-foot putt. He was skulling chips over the green back and forth like I’ve never seen him do. And then he’d sink an impossible putt. But goodness, if we were playing a two-man scramble we would have been golden. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been playing so poorly or maybe it’s just because I’m officially in love with the sport of golf, but I’ve been eyeing a set of irons in CCC’s pro shop the last few times I’ve been in there. Steve, the course’s pro, said he’d give me a killer deal on them and he can fit them and put thicker grips on them for me. There’s something I never considered before, too. Steve was out and talked to Bryan and I before we teed off on No. 1 and randomly asked me what size glove I wear. I said XL and he said I should consider getting thicker grips on all of my clubs. I have a thick grip on

my putter and it helps me from breaking my wrists. Steve said that thick grips on my irons and driver, etc. would keep me from turning over on the ball. It certainly makes sense. Maybe (hopefully) that’s all I need to do to fi nd my swing again. All right, I did it. I added our scores. It actually wasn’t nearly as bad as I would have guessed. I said I didn’t have anything lower than five, but I also had a lot of fives on my way to a 53 (still…ouch). Bryan took an 8 on No. 9 and finished with a 55. Yeah. Neither of us are terribly happy and we’ll probably never speak of that round again. Again, please send me your suggestions for what to do when you go weeks without making any good shots (perhaps that’s a little exaggeration). And as always, golf is great. Go get yourself some.

Impressive Times, Distances, Heights at CCAA Championship Meet, continued from page 25 Gowanda received a first-place effort in the 2,000-meter steeplechase when Hunter Samuelson crossed the finish line in 7:33.52. Dunkirk senior Rachel Rosas held on for second place (8:05.44) and Falconer’s Kirsten Holmberg was third (8:17.98). The girls 4x100 meter relay was one of the tightest races of the day as all eight teams in the finals were separated by less than 1.5 seconds. Falconer held on for the win (53.02) with Dunkirk (53.35), Maple Grove (53.95) and Clymer-Sherman (53.98) all right there, too. Southwestern’s Feldman earned her second first-place finish in the high jump when she bested teammate Diamond Fedrick and Salamanca’s Ryanne Yehl. Feldman cleared 5-feet, 1-inch while Fedrick and Yehl each maxed out at 5-feet even. Silver Creek senior Emily Harford cleared 9-3 to win the pole vault by three inches over Salamanca’s Alyssa Coustenis. Falconer’s Mackenzie Wright leapt her way to a first-place finish in the triple jump with a distance of 35-10 to win comfortably over Randolph’s Makenzie Evans (34-7.25). Another Golden Falcon, senior Alyssa Brooks, also had a lot

of success in her field events on Saturday. Brooks won the discus with a toss of 113-02 and then took second in the shot put with a heave of 31-7.25. Franklinville’s Anna O’Neal won the shot with her toss of 3311.75. The boys meet was filled with just as much excitement and athleticism. The 100-meter dash was ruled by Northern Chautauqua County athletes as Dunkirk’s Nick Barlette (11.49) won the race and was followed by Fredonia’s Matt McCarthy (11.62) and Dunkirk’s Jose Morales (11.63). Barlette and McCarthy then took their talents to the 200-meter dash where they again finished 1-2, respectively. Bartlette crossed the finish line in 23.29 seconds — just a blink of an eye before McCarthy’s 23.33.

usa Hockey Championships Contributed Article Hockey's ties with the Associated Press

USA Hockey has selected Buffalo to host both the under-18 women's and sledge hockey world championships next year. The eight-team women's championship will be held from Jan. 4-12. The sledge hockey championship will be held April 24-May 2, and also feature eight nations. The selection of Buffalo, announced Wednesday, strengthens USA

NHL's Sabres and the city as a hockey market. The increased interest in Buffalo coincides with the Sabres building a two-rink entertainment and hotel complex, which will be connected to their downtown arena. The rinks are scheduled to open in September. The Sabres are already hosting USA Hockey's next two annual All-American Prospects games. Buffalo also is a candidate to host the 2018 world junior championships.

The Bills are on the market after the team's Hall of Fame owner and founder, Ralph Wilson, died in March. Wilson's estate hired an attorneys and an investment banking firm last week to oversee the sale. They are expected to begin contacting prospective ownership groups by the end of next month. A new owner could be identified by as early as the end of July. The new owner would require approval from 24 of the NFL's 31 owners. New York City real estate mogul Donald Trump has already announced his interest in buying the team. Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly has also said he has had talks to partner with numerous ownership groups. Golisano's entry into the bidding process does not come as a surprise.

He first discussed the possibility of buying the Bills not long after purchasing the Sabres out of bankruptcy in 2004. Golisano said he would especially become involved in an ownership group if there were any fears of the team relocating. Wilson's death has raised concerns about the franchise's longterm future because of the possibility the team could be sold and eventually relocated to a more prosperous market such as Toronto. Golisano sold the Sabres in 2011. Later that year, he became involved in a group that failed in a bid to purchase the Major League Baseball Los Angeles Dodgers. The 72-year-old Golisano made his fortune founding Rochesterbased Paychex, a payroll processing firm.


His net worth was most recently estimated by Forbes to be at about $2 billion. He's from Rochester, but now makes his home in Florida. He came to prominence in New York in the late 1990s, when he made three unsuccessful gubernatorial runs. Congel was previously a principal at Pyramid. He has most recently run into difficulties attempting to redevelop the Medley Centre mall outside of Rochester. The mall is now vacant. Earlier this month, The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reported that Monroe County officials voted to declare that Congel was in default of his tax deal by failing to invest at least $165 million to redevelop the property. Pyramid's holdings, by comparison, have been lucrative with the com-

pany estimated to bring in estimated $5 billion in annual revenue from its 17 properties. The land the Shops at West Seneca are located upon are partially undeveloped and on the site of a former mall. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has said a new stadium would be the next step in securing the team's long-term future. New York state has also hired an architectural and design firm to identify between three or four sites across the region that could serve as the team's new home. The Bills are essentially locked into playing at Ralph Wilson Stadium through the end of the 2019 season under the terms of the lease the franchise reached with the state and county in December 2012.

win races at the end of the season.'' Few had done that better when it counts than Johnson. He's collected 14 Chase victories in his six title runs, including a pair last season that led him to title No. 6. It's a recipe, combined with the No. 48's typically solid performance, Johnson was certain would prevail no matter how many outside the race shop raised questions. ''Of course, we want to win early and often,'' Johnson said. ''But we were holding steady in championship points. In my opinion, I don't believe there will be 16 different winners.

''I felt like a strong championship points position would get us into the first phase of the Chase,'' he added. ''Granted, tonight simplifies things.'' Next week comes Dover where Johnson owns a record eight victories, then Pocono where Johnson's won three times. When Johnson broke through for his first crown in 2006, he and Knaus used the formula to add four more in one of the series' most dominant stretches. After Johnson finished sixth in 2011 and third in 2012, he was back on top last season and moved one step closer to the record

with two drivers who were part of NASCAR's first Hall of Fame class five years ago. Johnson, who had a Hall of Fame vote as Sprint Cup champion, isn't thinking much about that yet. The 38-yearold star is eager to build on his dominant showing in Charlotte. Johnson took his first pole of the season Thursday and was strong in practice Saturday. He led 165 of the 400 laps, proving his strength at the start before settling into the rhythm of NASCAR's long, long night. Johnson led 10 different times, including a final time with nine laps left

when he swept past Kenseth in Turn 4 and was never pressured on his way to the checkered flag. With a race win fi nally checked off his to-do list, Johnson can concentrate on prepping for the 10-race playoffs later on. Johnson earned the 11th career Coca-Cola 600 victory for car owner Rick Hendrick, who's got no doubt Johnson and Knaus are pointed to another big season. ''What they've been able to accomplish together, it's been amazing,'' he said. ''I always say I'm just glad I don't have to race against them.''

A Pe rsonal Injur y Law Fir m


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

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

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