By Daniel Meyer Star Contributing Writer

Thunder in the Streets and Downtown Cruisin’ will once again be held August 16 as thousands of automobile and motorcycle enthusiasts flock to the City of Jamestown for a day of familyoriented entertainment. Scheduled to take place on Friday, August 16, the activities will begin at noon and run until 11p.m. Coordinated by the Jamestown Renaissance Corporation, the 10th annual Thunder in the Streets and the 21st annual Downtown Cruisin’ will take place throughout the commercial business district of downtown Jamestown. The motorcycle rally will feature a professional motocross stunt show, a scenic motorcycle run, live musical entertainment, street merchants selling their wares, various children’s activities and the display of hundreds of motorcycles. Since merging the two events together, attendance has significantly increased for the one-day event, providing attendees plenty of choices for entertainment and giving businesses based in Jamestown maximum exposure as thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts visit the city.

Mayville’s hill on Academy Street is a popular site with village children for having the best winter sledding. What they may not know is that directly behind their favorite winter spot lies an area rich in history. Not only was it the site of two former schools, it also had the dubious distinction as the location of the last public hanging in New York State. That notorious event occurred on May 13, 1835, when Fredonia resident Joseph Damon was hanged twice for the murder of his wife. The gallows were on the Sherman side of the hill, according to Mayville historian Devon Taylor, within sight of the old Union School, which stood in the present day parking lot of the Chautauqua offices on Academy Street and Route 430. The building housing the town offices, which was the former Mayville Central High School, would not be opened until 1924. Gone is that first school, along with the home of fur trader Donald Mackenzie, torn down in

1969. Mackenzie is rumored to have been one of the first white men after Lewis and Clark, to make the cross-continent trip to the Pacific Ocean. The book, “Donald Mackenzie, King of the Northwest,” written by his grandson Cecil, states that he accompanied Lewis and Clark, but that has not been confirmed. Born in Scotland, Mackenzie would settle with his family in British Columbia and become a fur trader and eventually an expert on the west. Known as the “Scottish adventurer,” he would become a larger-than-life figure, known for his special talents in handling hostile Indians, and for governing provinces in Canada’s Northwest. Reported to have weighed over 300 pounds and was 6’8” in height, he was said to have been in “perpetual motion.” During his career from 1809 to 1833, he was involved in the historical Astor Expedition, which lead to the ContinueD on pG 13 Right: A historical marker stands near the sight of the Mackenzie home on Academy Street in Mayville.

“A necessary war”

“A Necessary War” At the start of the documentary, I was a bit put off, to be honest. Many of these men were talking about war, about killing people, with a smile on their face. One even chuckled as he reminisced about stabbing a man with a bayonet. However, you could see in their faces- in their eyes- that they knew that what they did was the right thing. Scott Wise “War,” once said, “is necesStar News Writer sary because there is evil in scott.wise@starthe world.

The words the next mentary by Ken Burns man uttered will stick with called ‘The War.’ Maybe me for the rest of my life: you’ve heard of it, but “When we saw that, when if you haven’t I strongly encourage you to watch it. we saw the camps. When History that is forgotten is we saw what they’d done doomed to repeat itself, as to those people, it became necessary.

Psychologically damag-

ing was these men seeing their friends blown apart at the cost of freedom. It was them watching as they fed whole foods to Jewish men, which only served to kill them because they hadn’t eaten more than a spoonful of slop in months. The other part of the documentary that really struck a chord with me was the general unity behind the mission. People didn’t know, entirely, what they were fighting against. They didn’t know of the atrocities the Nazis were committing, but they knew they were fighting for freedom, for democracy. Not just for this nation, but to keep the world as they knew a free place worth living in. That unification has since been lost on this nation. I hope that, and not at the expense of a world war, it returns in my lifetime. The news is so fi lled with anger and dissonance that it makes me wonder how we will ever find a common cause to throw our support behind. After all, with a government that is growing increasingly powerful and a people that are becoming increasingly godless, we are losing the very freedom that our brothers, fathers, grandfathers and forefathers fight and fought so hard for. The County Historical Society is going to be presenting a lecture this month, on Aug. 13, on the POW Camps in Chautauqua County during World War II. I’d encourage you to check it out if you can. Glean a little history, and perhaps form a newfound appreciation for what people suffered and fought for.

Valley Historical Society Holds Quilt Show Contributed Article JS Sipos

The annual quilt show was held at the Valley Historical Society museum building in Sinclairville during the first weekend in August. Handmade quilts are brought in by many people for display throughout the museum. There was no charge for anyone who attended the show. Some quilts date back nearly 100 years, while some are recent. The colors of all of the quilts make for a bright atmosphere in the museum

during the show. Fiber artist Susan W. Sipos of Cassadaga was working on a weaving floor loom in the museum during the show. Shown in the photograph are Lois Anderson and quilt show coordinator Betty Jean Ridout of Sinclairville. The Valley Historical Society was organized in 1977 by the late John and Ruth Smith who saw a need to preserve the history of the Cassadaga Valley area, and the museum was purchased one year later. Albert Olmstead of Sinclairville serves as the president of

the organization, with Larry Barmore as the vice president. Mary Shearman is the secretary and John Sipos is the treasurer. The annual history fair

sponsored by the Valley Historical Society and the Village of Sinclairville will be held all day on Saturday, Sept. 14. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Drinking water before, during, and after your workout is even more important. Drinking 16-20 ounces of water before your workout is suggested by the American College of Sports Medicine. Also, it is suggested to be drinking another 6-15 ounces of water every 15 minutes you are training outdoors. When you finish your training, drink another 16-20 ounces to replace what you have loss in sweat. In the end, drinking water and/or a product with electrolytes would be wise no matter how high or how low the temperature is.

As gatherers of nature’s bounty, we become more aware of and in tune with the seasonal changes and weather patterns. We also become more aware of the gifts that we are given so we can partake and nourish our families and ourselves. The act of gathering becomes almost spiritual and gives us back that con-

But incorporating a gathering season such as apple or blueberry season into your life may fill a void you were not even aware of. Ancient women developed critical bonds and friendships during their gathering times. There is nothing to stop modern women from going back to their roots and doing the same, one gathering season at a time.

Because The Resource Center is one of the few local providers that accept Medicaid, TRC serves as a safety net for people who otherwise would have difficulty accessing health care services. The Resource Center is one of the largest employers in Chautauqua County, providing jobs to more than 1,600 people – people who spend their paychecks at local businesses. With an annual operating budget of almost $100 million, The Resource Center is an economic engine for the region. TRC Foundation While The Resource Center has made a difference in the lives of thousands of people with disabilities over the years, TRC does not have enough money to provide all of the services people need. In 1995, aware that government

funding of services for people with disabilities may not always be available, TRC Foundation, Inc., was created. TRC Foundation raises money to meet the unfunded needs of Chautauqua County residents with disabilities and other socioeconomic challenges. Over the years, TRC Foundation has allocated more than $700,000 to improve the lives of people with disabilities. The Resource Center and TRC Foundation would not be successful without the support of the community. Because of this, TRC likes to give back to the community, and people with disabilities and their support staff volunteer at dozens of local charitable organizations. To learn more about TRC and fi nd out how you can make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities, visit or phone 483-2344.

17th Annual tRC Golf Classic to tee off August 12 Contributed Article TRC Foundation

Preparations are under way for the 2013 TRC Golf Classic, sponsored by Lake Shore Savings Bank. The 17th annual TRC Golf Classic will take place August 12 at Moon Brook Country Club in Jamestown. The tournament is a four-ball, two betterball event. In addition to the regular tournament, the day features a putting contest among local Special Olympics golfers. Last year’s TRC Golf Classic generated $59,600 in net proceeds. In its first 16 years, the tournament has netted about $1.25 million for TRC Foundation, an organization that works with The Resource Center to meet the unfunded needs of people with disabilities and other socioeconomic challenges in Chautauqua County. Thanks largely to

the tournament’s success, TRC Foundation has about $1.7 million in assets and has contributed more than $700,000 in the form of grants and support projects on behalf of individuals with disabling conditions since the foundation was established in 1995. Lake Shore Savings Bank has been a tournament sponsor every year since the TRC Golf Classic began in 1997. Last year was Lake Shore’s first as title sponsor of the TRC Golf Classic, and officials from Lake Shore Savings and TRC Foundation are pleased to have the bank as the title sponsor again this year. According to Lake Shore Savings’ president and CEO, Dan Reininga, “Lake Shore Savings Bank is excited about our expanded relationship with TRC Foundation. We’ve always considered TRC a vital part of our communi-

ty, and we’ve been pleased to assist in their good work. The bank is delighted to be able to offer our support to this key fund-raising effort.” “We are proud to work with Lake Shore Savings again this year. They are part of the team, and their continued support to our mission shows what kind of results can occur with two great organizations behind you. This event is special to everyone who has participated these past 17 years, and this is especially true to those who need its support,” said Gregg Bender, chair of the tournament’s steering committee. A variety of sponsorship levels are available for businesses and individuals interested in being part of the TRC Golf Classic. For information, contact Bender at 661-1542 or at

RELIGION SECTION Keeping the Faith

Rev. Michael Lokietek Family Church Fredonia

Can you help me better understand God’s sovereignty? God’s sovereignty is something that is often referred to in Christian circles, but is very often misunderstood. For a better understanding, we will first defi ne sovereignty. Sovereignty means “the state or quality of being superior and above all others”. God’s sovereignty denotes that God is all-knowing (Omniscient), all-powerful (Omnipotent), and all-present (Omnipresent). It’s hard for our finite minds to grasp the magnitude of God’s attributes. The Bible tells us that it will only be when we are in Heaven that

we will be able to fully understand these aspects of God’s nature. When most people refer to the sovereignty of God, it is in the context of actions that God takes because He is God; acts that are done outside the will or interaction of man. When God created the world (Genesis 1:1), it was a sovereign act. Acts 1:7 tells us that the end of the world has also been divinely set by His power:”… It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father has put in His own power.” One of the greatest sovereign acts of God, and most difficult to

understand, was to give mankind a free will (Genesis 1:26). Our free will gives us the power to make choices outside of the direct intervention of God. God gave us free will in order that we make the choice to come to Him. God could have made us love Him yet created us with the ability to reject Him and His gift of salvation. I believe that, like any parent, He wanted us to come to Him willingly rather than some sort of forced relationship. Due to the nature of free will, most of the difficulties that we experience in life have to do with our choices and not God’s inter-

action. This can be difficult to accept because it’s much easier to place the responsibility for life’s events and consequences on God rather than on our own actions or choices. While the concept of God’s sovereignty may be hard to accept, it is important to remember that the Bible tells us: “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, declares the Lord” (Isaiah 55:8). We must therefore accept in faith that there will be those things we don’t fully understand until we are united with Him in Heaven.

SENIOR SECTION Fundraising walk to end Alzheimer’s in Chautauqua Contributed Article Alzheimer’s Association

Every 68 seconds across the United States, someone develops Alzheimer’s disease. Across the Chautauqua County region, some 18,000 people are impacted by this disease, and experts predict those numbers will explode over

the next three decades. On September 7, hundreds of people from the area will come together at the Chautauqua Institution to try to turn the tide in the fight to End Alzheimer’s. The Alzheimer’s Association, WNY Chapter, is organizing the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s, which provides the funds that

enable the chapter to offer free help, education and support to area residents who are impacted by this disease, and fund research that will fulfi ll the mission to end Alzheimer’s disease. It’s estimated that some 4,700 Chautauqua County residents have Alzheimer’s, with another 14,000 family and friends providing

some kind of care for those residents. There is no way to prevent, slow or cure the disease and it is now the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. Walk registration is open to everyone, and participants can join as an individual or start a team, and earn a T-shirt and other prizes for reaching fundraising

goals. Registration is fast and simple—just visit: alz. org/wny or call 1-800-2723900. The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is made possible through the generous support of these fine local companies: Elderwood Senior Care, West Herr, Columbus McKinnon, and Tim Hortons, with media

support provided by The Jamestown Gazette, Media One Group and WKBWTV. Walks are also planned on September 7 in Orleans Co. (Medina), Sept. 21 in Erie Co. (Buffalo), Sept. 28 in Genesee Co. (Batavia) and Niagara Co. (Lewiston) and on October 5 in Wyoming Co. (Warsaw).

Village of lakewood Recreating Honor Roll Contributed Article CRCF

Recently, American Legion Post #1286 and The Lakewood Historical Society have partnered to recreate a piece of history and pay tribute to area veterans. According to Anthony Barone, Village Historian, “This has been

a long, overdue honor to the men and women who have served during one of the greatest confl icts in our country’s history, World War II.” An Honor Roll listing the names of Lakewood residents whose military service includes World War II is being recreated from a picture of the original Hon-

or Roll that was displayed in the location now known as Lakewood Beach. Hanson Sign Company is constructing the sign. A grant from the Axel W. Carlson Memorial Fund at the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation kick started the project but additional donations are sought to fi nish the project

by the end of the year. Donations may be mailed to the American Legion Post #1286, 174 Chautauqua Avenue, Lakewood.

The Brooks Memorial Hospital Obstetrics Department participated in a national campaign aimed at improving quality in health care and healthier outcomes for newborns and moms. As a result of a survey completed in the program, the Obstetrics Department was awarded a $4,500 stipend used toward the purchase of phototherapy equipment which is used to lower bilirubin levels in infants.

Health officials agree that an infant’s morbidity, or chance of complications, and mortality risk, increase before 39 weeks gestation. Full-term babies are also less likely to have hearing, vision, feeding or birthweight problems, officials say. The project is part of the New York State Partnership for Patients, a quality initiative to advance the goals of better health, better care and lower costs. Brooks Memorial Hospital’s participation is part of the Obstetrical Safety Initiative. Ms. Atzrott said she plans to continue providing data for future analysis. The federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services had made early elective deliveries reduction a significant priority and provided its state partners with funds for the survey project. By providing statistics from the local hospital and participating in the study, Ms. Atzrott said she believes physicians and patients will be positively impacted by the results. “We want to make a difference,” she said. The hospital is an affiliate of Lake Erie Regional Health System of New York (LERHSNY).




Quality Collaborative Obstetrical Improvement Project. The hospital submitted data to state officials over a six month period on newborns delivered prior to full-term, or 39 weeks. The purpose of the study, in collaboration with other health care organizations throughout the state, is to reduce the number of early elective deliveries by five percent or less and ensure better outcomes for newborns. The study details information on cases where physicians induced labor in women prior to delivering full-term babies, and in cases where pre-term cesarean sections were performed in women between 36 and 38 weeks. The project “has already achieved significant success, reducing scheduled cesarean sections and inductions” in several birthing centers throughout New York State according to state program officials. OB departments are provided with staff support and communication strategies for enhancing the patient experience and educating birthing moms about the risks and benefits of full gestation periods. Why is full-term delivery so important to a newborn’s overall health? “Full lung development and healthier outcomes are achieved the longer babies are in the womb,” Ms. Atzrott noted.

AnnuAl shOwcAse Of trActOrs, mOtOrs And hOusehOld devices will Be held Over three dAys By Daniel Meyer Star Contributing Writer

The annual display of items from the Chautauqua County Antique Equipment Association’s vast collection of old tractors, antique motors and unique household devices will take place next weekend in the Town of Stockton. The 39th annual Chautauqua County Antique Equipment Show is scheduled to take place on Friday, August 16, Saturday, August 17 and Sunday, August 18, with various demonstrations slated to be held on the Antique Equipment Association’s 17-acre park on Cemetery Road. Activities will begin each day at 9 a.m. and run through 5 .p.m as volunteers from the organization welcome visitors to Chautauqua County from all across New York as well as other states, many of who say they regularly plan their summer vacations to coincide with the annual equipment show. A number of tractors each more than 50 years old will be featured in different tractor-pulling demonstrations and a working welldrilling rig that dates back to the 19th century will also be on display. Tractors manufactured by the following companies will be shown: White; Oliver, Cockshutt; Avery; Cletrac;

Hart-Parr; Minneapolice Moline. In addition, attendees can watch a blacksmith master his craft and special demonstrations on butter churning, chair-caning, weaving and spinning will also take place. “We have a little something for everyone,” said Sally Bulger, secretary of the Chautauqua County Antique Equipment Association. “The tractors are always a big draw. This is an event where you can

bring the whole family and have fun and maybe learn a thing or two.” Among the antique home appliances that will be on display are refrigerators, washing machines, stoves and sewing machines. There will also be an old printing press and old machines that were used in the past by craftsmen, including winemakers and shoemakers. As in years past, attendees can expect to be surprised by some last-minute exhib-

its that will be added to the show literally days before the three-day affair is celebrated. There will also be other farm equipment demonstrations, competitive tractor pulls, flea markets and food and beverage items for sale.

Re-Power Dunkirk S upport Our Local Economy efforts continue to repower nrg By Greg Edwards, County Executive

I would like to thank everyone who has demonstrated their support for RePowering NRG by writing, emailing, calling, or speaking to the Public Service Commission (PSC). The PSC will be making their decision soon and although we have joined together and shown our

full support for the project as evidenced by the public hearing, we cannot let our efforts fall to the wayside. I have heard from local union leaders that we are losing the battle in Albany to save NRG as many environmentalists have been speaking out against the project. We must continue to show our support for

NRG’s RePowering Project as it is an important opportunity for our County and we must continue to encourage and engage others to share their support as well. By RePowering NRG’s Dunkirk plant with clean natural gas, it would save existing jobs, put hundreds of New Yorkers to work,

ensure a reliable source of power for Western New York, reduce energy costs for consumers, and provide a secure and stable tax base for years to come. Please show support for this project by: Emailing secretary@dps. and including the email subject “Case No. 12-E-0577.”

Audience members listen to speakers at the Repower Dunkirk event in SUNY Fredonia’s William Center

discovery of several western rivers. According to the book, “Chautauqua County on the National Scene,” Mackenzie heard of a lovely little lake near the eastern end of Lake Erie, where he chose as his home when he was ready to retire, spending his remaining years in Mayville. However, even in retirement, he continued to make contributions to history. Among the distinguished visitors Mackenzie enter-

account states that Mackenzie was a close friend of Judge Peacock, the land agent, and is said to have been with him in his office on the day in 1836 when armed men marched on the land office. The story goes that Mackenzie resolved to defend the land office with his life and picked (Peacock) up bodily with many of the valuable papers and carried him up the hill to his own house.” It was during that raid by the mob of early settlers,

which destroyed everything except for the old stone vault, which still stands today near county office buildings. A self-made man, Mackenzie amassed a large fortune in his time and came to Mayville to build a brick mansion where he and his wife and 11 children lived. It is said that the family donated the property for the original school. Cecil Mackenzie writes that in one of his grandfather’s trips to Buffalo, “he

was thrown from his horse at a point known as eighteen-mile creek and was badly injured. While he lingered for six months, he never recovered the state of mind, which had made him feared in the handto-hand encounters of the Northwest.” He passed away January 20, 1851. Buried in the 4 1/4 acre family plot, near his home, Mackenzie’s body was moved to Mayville Cemetery, where other family members were also buried.

Commenting about the project, Chautauqua County Executive Gregory J. Edwards said, “With a name already known to many in Western New York, we are excited that Nowinski brand pierogies will now be produced right here in Chautauqua County, creating significant new jobs for the local economy. This is a big win for us and another excellent job coordinating assistance and incentives by the CCIDA.” Federal and State elected officials were also involved in the project, providing support and resources to the new company. U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand stated, “Nowinski Pierogies has made a wise choice in locating their production facilities in Westfield, and I thank them for investing in Western New York’s economy,” Gillibrand continued, “This welcome addition to Westfield’s industrial corridor can bring up to 50 jobs to the area, and I am confident that Nowinski Pierogies will be thrilled with our dedicated and skilled workforce in Chautauqua County.” New York State Sena-

tor Catharine Young also extended congratulations saying, “Food industries are economic drivers in our region, and it is exciting to have Rae Foods as the newest manufacturing company in Westfield. Everyone loves pierogies, especially when it means that we are gaining more

than 50 new full-time, permanent jobs. We are grateful to the company for their entrepreneurial spirit and $2.5 million investment in our economy. State and local economic development officials worked together to make this venture a reality, with a nearly $275,000 incentive from the state. It is

tained and advised while in retirement were Daniel Webster and William H. Seward, who later served as Secretary of State under President Harrison. It is noted that he gave advice on where the international boundary should be established for Oregon, and also may have planted the seeds that led to the purchase of Alaska from Russia.

We then launched a review of local and state economic incentives available to attract the company to New York State. Elected officials from the Federal level all the way to the local level were engaged together and led the charge in providing support and resources to Beverly and Rachelle at every turn. I would especially like to note the assistance provided by County Executive Greg Edwards, New York State Senator Catharine Young, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Westfield Mayor Michael VandeVelde, former Mayor David Carr, and of course the tireless effort of Aaron Resnick of the Westfield Development Corporation.” Through actions taken by the CCIDA Board of Directors the company will receive a 10-year Payment in Lieu of Tax schedule, $640,000 in AL Tech Revolving Loan Fund financing for working capital, machinery and equipment, abatement of sales tax during the construction

period, and also abatement of mortgage recording tax. Additional economic incentives were also approved by Empire State Development. Aaron Resnick offered congratulations and gratitude to the owners for choosing Westfield as their location. “Representing the Westfield Development Corporation and its Board of Directors, I am thrilled to welcome Rae Foods, Inc. to Westfield, New York. It has been a pleasure working with the Rae Foods Executive team, in partnership with local, State and County representatives and economic development agencies to bring together the necessary real estate, fi nancing and incentives to support the establishment of this exciting new business venture.” Many in Western New York are already familiar with the Pennsylvania brand of Nowinski Pierogies, which are currently sold as six varieties in local corner markets: potato and cheddar, potato and sauerkraut (kapusta), potato and roasted garlic, potato with cheddar and jalapeno, sauerkraut, and cheese.

Approximately 7,000 fans came through the gates during the fi ve performances to cheer on the competition, which included some of the nation’s best rodeo cowboys and cowgirls. In addition, more than 3,400 patrons enjoyed the famous beef barbeque dinners. The All-Around Cowboy Award goes to the cowboy who wins the most money while competing in at least two events. This year’s winner was Justin Thigpen from Waycross, Ga., who won the tie-down roping event and placed third in the steer wrestling to take home a total of $2,402.14 and a Montana Silversmith crafted belt buckle awarded by the fi re department. Thigpen won more than 50 buckles and 11 saddles while competing in high school rodeos and is now ranked fourth in the nation in the allaround standings. Jacobs Crawley, Stephenville, Tex., took home the most money, earning a check for

$2,986.17 with his fi rst place in the saddle bronc competition. However, he was not eligible for the All-around title as this was his only event. He is a former National Collegiate Champion and has qualified for the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas the past two years. Rodeo chairman Tom Atwell wishes to thank all the fans who supported the rodeo, the loyal sponsors, and the more than 300 volunteers who made it possible. All proceeds benefit the Gerry Volunteer Fire

Department. Next summer the rodeo will celebrate its 70th year running July 30 through August 2. The prize money comes from sponsors, the fi re department and entry fees paid by the competitors. These entry fees range from $70 to $150 depending on the event. The odd figures in award money are the result of a 5% fee from the winnings deducted by the PRCA headquarters. The top three money winners in each of the seven events are:

The biggest fundraiser of the year for the Boys and Girls Club of Northern Chautauqua County went off perfectly at Shorewood Country Club on Friday. The NRG Boys and Girls Club Golf Tournament drew a full slate of golfers on a pristine morning for golf. Everyone came to have a good time and support a great cause. “We get a lot of the businesses in the area that really help out the kids,” Tournament Chairman Mark Coyle said. “It benefits the kids the most. This is a tournament where you really get something back with the prizes and food, but it helps the kids and that’s the most important part.” While the money raised isn’t earmarked for a specific project this year, it marks the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Boys and Girls Club. “Right now it helps us stay solvent,” Coyle noted. “The Boys and Girls Club has struggled from year to year to make ends meet. This is something that really helps us. It’s not something that goes to a specific project, but it just keeps us going.”

The Boys and Girls Club of Northern Chautauqua County provides a number of services to the youth of the area.


“It provides summer camps for kids and after-school programs,” Coyle added. “We take them to ball games. They go and do

community services and clean up beaches and flower beds. It basically gives these kids a place to go after school so they don’t just go home and become latchkey kids. We have events like basketball games, we have snacks and food, we have computers, we have pool tables. It really gives them something that they might not get at home.” The tournament itself was fi lled with extra fun and excitement in addition to 18 gorgeous holes of golf. Fredonia Chrysler was the hole-in-one sponsor on No. 4. If anyone had gotten an ace on that hole they would have been driving a brand new 2013 Chrysler 200 home. There were closest to the pin contests on all the par 3’s as well as longest drive competitions for men and women on No. 7. “We have some great donations,” Coyle added. “Sears gave us a lawn mower. Walmart gave us a TV. We have a cooler full of cheer. That’s a raffle. We have a 50/50 and Chinese auctions —all of the baskets were donated by local businesses or people.” Of course none of this could have been possible without the hard work of Coyle, E.J.

another look into preseason predictions

By Stefan Gestwicki Sports Editor

Nobody likes being wrong. Everyone likes making predictions. Predictions are almost always wrong. There’s a hard truth in that vicious triangle of statements. It’s one that, as a sports writer, I am faced with every day. At the beginning of the Major League Baseball season I wrote team-byteam predictions for every squad in both the American and National Leagues. Some look good right now. Some make it seem like I’ve never watched a baseball game in my life. Either way, it’s fun to look back at how I’ve done so far as well as look ahead towards the looming pennant chases. coNtINUED oN pG 4

The show will be broadcast nationally on NBC on Sunday, Jan. 5, 2014 (1-3 p.m. EST). Following the initial telecast on NBC there will be two rebroadcasts of the show on AXS TV (a national cable network owned by Mark Cuban and Ryan Seacrest).

50/50 to Support pollino cancer Fund rescheduled For Saturday

nO BETTER Way TO SpEnD a SaTuRDay mORning Than gOlfing

By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

My golfer’s diary will follow my golf outing(s) for the week. I’ll look at how course conditions, weather, equipment, playing partners, etc. affect the game we love. Please 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: You don’t have to be a zero handicap to enjoy the game. As I kept an eye on the weather report during the week, Saturday looked like it had the makings of an ungolfable (I’m assuming that’s a legitimate term) day. Cold and wet was the prediction. But alas, when Saturday morning finally rolled around the skies were clear and conditions were absolutely ideal for hitting the links. Bryan and I joined my friend Craig as well as Forestville volleyball/golf coach Jack Dugan at Pinehurst Golf Club in Westfield. As luck would have it, we’d all be in for quite a treat. After a modest first three holes, Jack accomplished something that some golfers go their whole lives trying to achieve — a hole in one. Yes, with one swing of his 7-iron on No. 4, Jack erased a history of close calls, lip-outs and woulda-beens. Having played the same course the day before, he tried a different club than he usually does. His 8-iron wasn’t working so he went with one more club. He gave it more of a punch and we all watched as the ball hit the bottom of the green and rolled up towards the cup. When we lost sight of the ball nobody

was sure if the ball was in the cup or if it had rolled off the back of the green. I pulled out my phone and videotaped Jack walking the 140 yards to the green. He actually looked behind the green before peaking into the cup and seeing the now-trophy ball. I know golfers who have played for years and not only have they never had a hole-inone, they’ve never even seen one. To have seen one in my short playing career I feel very fortunate. Even with his heart still racing on the next hole. Jack had a look at a birdie putt. He left it just low, but an ace followed by a par is a nice little run on the scorecard. I, meanwhile, played a very average front 9. I started slowly as I always do, unable to really get loose just taking practice swings. I took a 5 on the par 3 that Jack aced, which was my first double-bogey on a par three in quite a long time. My highlight of the front half was probably the par I recorded on No. 6 — a 491 yard par 5. I followed that with a par on No. 7 — a scenic par 3 over a pond. As usual, however, I royally

messed up No. 9 despite a very good drive. I’m not sure what it is about that hole, but I can’t seem to get the ball on the green. I ended with a 46, which felt about right with no birdies and a few double-bogeys. After a round of adult beverages in the clubhouse to celebrate Jack’s accomplishment, we headed out to play the back nine. I would have had an excellent round if not for No.11, which I butchered to the tune of a snowman. It started harmlessly enough as I was on the front of the green after three shots, but then I bounced my putter and hit the ball about halfway up the hill and it promptly came right back to me. Then I went past the hole on shot number five and down the hill on shot number six. It was just a trash hole, one that killed my chance at a great round after just two holes. I did, however, play very well after that. My best hole of the day came on No. 14. A doozy of a drive left me probably 35 yards from the green. Jack “challenged” me to birdie the hole. Well after a little pitching wedge action and a 10-foot putt, that’s exactly what I did.

Then as if that wasn’t good enough, I managed a par on No. 15, which jets out to a mind-bending 573 yards. I totally and completely credit my new 3-hybrid with being able to accomplish that feat as my second shot was a blast with that bad boy. It still took a very tough uphill putt to reach par, but boy did that feel good after I took an 8 the last time I played the hole from the blue tees. I made a nice par on No. 18 to fi nish the round at 44, giving me a 90 for the day. It was a solid performance, but one I can defi nitely improve on. Bryan shaved an incredible 12 strokes off his score from the front nine to the back nine. Part of the was a rough first playthrough, but he played one of his better rounds of the season on the back 9. Craig golfed for the first time all year, but definitely showed improvement with each swing of the club. Part of his struggles is the fact that he’s a tall guy and has trouble forcing himself to stay down on the ball. When he straightens up he tops the ball and rolls in lightly up the fairway. When he stays down on it he can really have some nice shots. Jack just edged me out with an 88, but no matter what he did on any other hole, he’ll only remember his hole-inone on No. 4. Will I be that guy who never gets one or will I get one my next time out? I’ll let you know. Stefan Gestwicki is the sports editor of the Chautauqua Star.

Thigpen showed his allaround skills as he was the only cowboy to succeed in the tie-down roping, tying both of his calves in a total of 20 seconds flat. The Painted Pony Rodeo’s bulls were more than a match for the cowboys as John Jacobs of Timber Lake, South Dakota, was the only rider to stay on for the required eight seconds, and he did it on both of his bulls to post a big lead in this event with a total of 163 points. The cowgirls barrel racing saw very close competition as the ten riders posted times less than

two seconds apart. The fastest time went Kassie Hohenstein, a Minnesota cowgirl, at 15.38 seconds followed by Rebecca Weiner from Gloversville, New York, at 15.90. Rodeo clown Dusty Barrett and young Dusti Stockton, who is the youngest trick rider in PRCA rodeo today, combined skill and comedy on their Roman Riding ponies to provide one of the most entertaining acts ever in the Gerry arena. All proceeds go to support the Gerry Volunteer Fire Department as they respond to 350 fire and emergency calls each year.

Saturday Brought Fast Times And High Scores At Gerry Rodeo Submitted Article Paul Cooley

The rodeo athletes were at their best on Saturday night in the closing performance of the Gerry Volunteer Fire Department’s 69th consecutive PRCA rodeo as new times and scores were recorded in four of the seven competitive events before another near capacity crowd under perfect weather conditions. The bareback event set the tone for the evening as Kyle Brennecke from Grain Valley, Mo., rode a bronc named Chip-N-Dale for a new high on the week of 81 points. The previous high had been 77 points set by Josh Cragar, Columbia, Tenn., on opening night. This was followed in the

saddle bronc competition as Jacobs Crawley traveled from Stephenville, Tex., to post a 77-point ride on Painted Pony’s horse called Big Mac, tying him for the best ride of the week. Crawley was not done, however, as he later rode painted Pony Rodeo’s National Finals Rodeo bronc New York Mega Millions for 84 points to take the saddle bronc title in Gerry for the second straight year. The steer wrestlers made it tough on the steers as two cowboys posted faster times than the previous time set on Wednesday night. Jacob Rounds, a New York cowboy from Broadabin took over first place as he tossed his steer to the dirt in 4.7 seconds, followed by Mike Cliver III, Westfield, Pa., who posted a time of

5.3 seconds. Placing third on the night was 58 year-old Joe Bell, Sr., who had a time of 8.5 seconds in his 35th visit to compete in Gerry. The team ropers had four teams post scores faster than the previous high of 7.7 seconds as all three teams were under seven seconds. The fastest time at 6.3 seconds was set by Rob Toth, Wolcott, Conn., and Fred Brunelle from Schuylerville, N.Y. with the other three teams posting times of 6.7, 6.8, and 6.9 in very close competition. The tie-down ropers found the going tough as only Darren Morgan, Fort Edward, N.Y., could come close to the 9.9 seconds time posted by Jeremy Olson, Cottage Grove, Wis., on Thursday as Morgan tied his calf in 12 seconds flat.

RODEO finals continued from pg 1

Only one bull rider was successful in riding his bull for the full eight seconds. A cowboy from Schriever, La., rode a bull called John Doe for a score of 78 points for the second best score of the week, seven points behind the 85 scored by South Dakota’s John Jacobs in the opening performance. The cowgirls found the going a bit slow in the barrel racing as only one of the ten riders was able to break the 16 seconds mark, with Lisa McCarthy from Cream Ridge, N.J. circling the barrels in 15.89 seconds for the third best time of the week. The most courageous ride was made by Conny Doble, Woodman, Wis., who rode for a time of 16.35 seconds despite being legally blind.

More than 80 kids eight and under took part in the kids' rodeo on Saturday at the Gerry Fire Department's 69th annual PRCA rodeo. Molly Bernier (left) from Ludlow, Mass. and Jeremiah Green,Coudersport, Pa. received their Best Dressed Cowgirl and Best Dressed Cowboy awards from Ashlee Lattner, Miss Teen Rodeo New York.

Commentary continued from pg 1 In the American League East, I drank the Kool Aid and predicted the Toronto Blue Jays would win the division. You may have noticed that Toronto currently sits in dead last in the East. Yeah, not my best call on that one. The rest of the division actually looks similar to how I have it, just with each team bumped up one spot due to the Jays’ issues. The Red Sox have bounced back in a big way, just like I predicted. The recent acquisition of Jake Peavy helps solidify the rotation and brings a true gamer into the clubhouse. Tampa and Baltimore will continue to duke it out with Boston for the division title. The Yankees are a bit of a wild card. I thought they’d finish in last. Even though they’ve performed far better than most expected, they’re still only in fourth place and now it looks like Derek Jeter might make another trip to the DL. Though still very much in the playoff hunt, it’s going to be hard for the Bronx Bombers to pass as many teams as they need to. The American League

Central is playing out how most experts thought it would, though perhaps a little closer than originally thought. The Detroit Tigers are the class of the division and should be able to hang on for another title. The Cleveland Indians and Kansas City Royals have both been crazy hot and are contending for the A.L. wild card spots. Minnesota and the Chicago White Sox each had the pieces to trade away for prospects but failed to do so at the deadline. Minnesota has a few very highly touted prospects in its system, but Chicago really could have used a return for Alex Rios or Alexei Ramirez. Both teams are totally out of contention for 2013, just as many expected. I’m not sure anyone could have predicted what’s been going in the American League West, where the Los Angeles Angels have defied all odds by being one of the worst teams in the league despite running out superstars Mike Trout, Josh Hamilton, Mark Trumbo and Albert Pujols

(currently injured) on a daily basis. The pitching has been banged up, but there’s no excuse for being eight games UNDER .500. The A’s just keep winning despite a lack of superstars. I had them fighting for a wild card, but it looks like they’re going to win the division again because Texas is going to lose a big bat when Nelson Cruz is suspended. The Rangers may still sneak in, but the loss of Mike Napoli and Hamilton has really hurt their offense. Houston is bordering on being the worst team of all time. Yes, we knew they’d be bad. Okay, we probably even knew they’d be this bad. At least they’re building a solid farm system and their team of the future. On to the National League, where the N.L. East makes me feel incredibly smart. I may have been the only person outside of Georgia that picked anyone but the Washington Nationals to win this division. Not only are the Atlanta Braves leading the pack, but they have a double-digit lead.

The Nationals are proving that they are a young team. Davey Johnson’s World Series-or-bust motto is looking a lot more bust these days. The Phillies failed to do anything of revelance at the trade deadline and are destined to waste another year floating around .500. The New York Mets have a bright future with Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler, but that future is not now as the rest of the roster (except David Wright) is a train wreck. The Miami Marlins also have a bright future and have actually been winning some games since July. They’ll still finish in last, but have separated themselves from Houston for title of “Worst Team in Baseball.” This is the only division in which I have all the teams picked correctly so far. The Pittsburgh Pirates continue to be the story of the ultra-competitive National League Central. At 23-games over .500, not only do the Buccos lead the division, but they sport the best winning percentage in MLB. Of course, like many

I thought for sure that it’d be the Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals duking it out for division supremacy. The Cards are right there and the Reds would make the playoffs if they started today, so those predictions aren’t too bad. The Chicago Cubs are far better than most people think, even after trading Matt Garza, Alfonzo Soriano, Scott Feldman and Scott Hairston. The Milwaukee Brewers are in the midst of a hellish season in which the face of their franchise turned into the face of PEDs and is suspended for the rest of the year. Carlos Gomez and Jean Segura, however, give the Crew two young, exciting players to sell to their fans. At this point in the season, exactly no one would be shocked to see three playoff teams come from this division. I’m more than a little embarrassed about my predictions in the National League West. The L.A. Dodgers have righted the ship and currently hold a 5.5 game lead. After all their offseason moves that’s

exactly what I thought would happen. The rest of the division, however, is in shambles. I had the San Francisco Giants in second — they’re currently in last and an astounding 12 games under .500. The Arizona Diamondbacks led the division most of the year before falling to second after LA got hot. I had the D’backs in 4th. I thought the Padres would be one of the worst teams to ever take the field, but they’ve showed signs of life and are currently in third place in the division. The Rockies started hot, but have since proven that they’re the Rockies and are buried in fourth.

bills held 90 minute scrimmage on monday continued from pg 1 Manuel threw two interceptions on his first eight attempts, before closing with two touchdowns, and scoring another on a 1-yard run. ''I felt like I didn't start out how I wanted to, obviously,'' said Manuel, whose first throw was intercepted and returned for a touchdown by cornerback Leodis McKelvin. ''The biggest thing for me was just to show that I could fight back, move past it. Obviously, it's not going to be the last interception I throw in my career.'' The scrimmage was held 10 days into training camp in suburban Rochester, and in advance of the Bills' preseason opener at Indianapolis on Sunday. By unofficial count, because the team did not release statistics, Manuel completed 9 of 17 attempts for 113 yards. He threw a perfectly placed 27-yard fade to T.J. Graham in the left corner of the end zone for his first touchdown. Manuel then hit Drew Smith on a 10-yard fade in just about the same spot for his second score. The downside came on the interceptions. Manuel misread which way receiver Robert Woods was going to cut, allowing McKelvin to jump the route. On his next interception, Manuel's pass was batted at the line, and the ball fell into the hands of linebacker Arthur Moats.

Manuel said. ''Even though you face some adversity, sometimes I feel like you could still learn from those things and still get better from them.'' On the upside, McKelvin's interception continued what's been a solid camp for the sixth-year player competing for a starting job.

MLB Power Rankings (through AUGUST 7, 2013)

By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

These weekly power rankings are based on more than just standings. They are the opinion of just one person and meant to facilitate discussion. Feel free to disagree with the rankings and send your thoughts to 1) Atlanta Braves 69-45 Yes, a 12-game winning streak is almost always good enough for a No. 1 ranking. 2) Detroit Tigers 66-45 Though a 10-game streak and five-game lead in the division is nothing to sneeze at. 3) Boston Red Sox 69-46 Who would have guessed that a potential John Lackey injury would scare Sox fans? 4) Pittsburgh Pirates 68-44 At .607, the Buccos have the best winning percentage in the Major Leagues. 5) Los Angeles Dodgers 62-50 Hope you didn’t blink. Big Blue went from last place to a five-game division lead. 6) St. Louis Cardinals 66-46 Experts are still deeming the Cards as the best team in the N.L. It’s hard to argue. 7) Tampa Bay Rays 66-46 Miggy and Crush Davis are good, but Evan Longoria might be the true MVP of the A.L. 8) Cincinnati Reds 62-51 They’ve been stumbling lately, but the Reds still enjoy a 5.5 game wild card lead. 9) Oakland Athletics 64-48 A Bartolo Colon suspension would have been a major hit to their playoff hopes. 10) Texas Rangers 64-50 They’re 3-0 since the Nelson Cruz suspension. Expect them to take a dive relatively soon. 11) Cleveland Indians 62-51 If the playoffs started today the Tribe would be in. There weren’t many that predicted that. 12) Baltimore Orioles 62-51 Kudos to Nick Markakis for ripping PED users. He’s the anti-Brady Anderson. 13) Kansas City Royals 57-53 These guys haven’t made the playoffs since mullets were cool. Wait, mullets were cool? 14) Arizona Diamondbacks 57-55 Paul Goldschmidt’s MVP stock has tumbled as the D’backs fall from contention. 15) New York Yankees 57-55 A-Rod got suspended? Wait! Why did no one tell me about this? Stop the presses! 16) Washington Nationals 54-59 Bryce Harper should just be thankful he doesn’t get pegged every game. 17) Toronto Blue Jays 53-60 Yuck. This is MLB’s 17th best team? There are a lot of terrible teams out there. 18) Seattle Mariners 52-61 Josh Johnson just outdueled Felix Hernandez. Don’t adjust your sets. That’s a true statement. 19) San Diego Padres 52-61 Buying low on Ian Kennedy could be a key to turning this franchise around. Shrewd move. 20) Colorado Rockies 52-62 Carlos Gonzalez’s MVP stock has tumbled as the Rockies fall from contention. 21) Los Angeles Angels 51-61 I don’t care who you are, that J.B. Shuck catch and fall into the stand was awesome. 22) Philadelphia Phillies 51-61 Is it too late to made deadline deals? Yes. But not too late to fire GM Ruben Amaro. 23) New York Mets 50-60 Don’t be surprised if the Mets shut down Matt Harvey soon with an innings limit. 24) San Francisco Giants 50-62 According to, the defending champs are down to a 0.7% playoff odds. 25) Chicago Cubs 49-63 Starlin Castro has their highest qualified batting average at a puny .245. 26) Minnesota Twins 49-61 Remember when the Twins were the model franchise with playoffs and a low payroll? 27) Milwaukee Brewers 48-65 It’s still mind-boggling that this team didn’t sell off any pieces at the deadline. WHY? 28) Miami Marlins 43-68 Dead last in runs, batting average, on base and slugging percentage. Your 2013 Marlins. 29) Chicago White Sox 42-69 For one series the White Sox mattered because of Alex Rodriguez. Your 2013 White Sox. 30) Houston Astros 37-75 Their best player ( Jose Altuve) has a .318 on base percentage. Your 2013 Astros.
