An audience of 200 who recently packed into the American Legion in Brocton to hear a presentation on the World War II POW camps in Dunkirk, Brocton and Westfield may have been somewhat surprised by what they heard. The speaker, Dunkirk Middle School History Teacher Ryan Corbett, presented the findings of a research project he and five students conducted on the camps in 2007, which included a 45 minute video history of locals who had a first hand account of the camps and its prisoners. Corbett, who grew up in Dunkirk, said he would hear about the camp growing up, which had been at the fairgrounds, but didn’t know much about it and was surprised by the types of things that were unveiled. The project came about through Corbett’s involvement in the group Teaching American History, (TAH), which was the result of a grant to encourage teachers in Chautauqua County to involve their students in learn-

Almost two-dozen children, aged 7 to 15 participated in “Bring Your Child to Work Day” at Lake Shore Health Care Center in Silver Creek and Brooks Hospital in Dunkirk. The event provided children with an opportunity to see the types of health care careers that are offered and through hands-on demonstrations, to experience the types of work their parents undertake each day. Scott Butler, Vice President of Community Relations for Lake Erie Regional Health System of New York (LERHSNY), said the event is one of the ways to get kids interested in health care careers at any early age, which is intended to help offset anticipated worker shortages in the years to come. At the daylong event, children at both Brooks and Lake Shore hospital toured the buildings, met staff and visited various departments within the hospitals to view facilities and participate in hands-on demonstrations. At Brooks, LPN Theresa Schrantz used a black light to demonstrate to a group of 8-10 year olds the importance of proper hand washing for infection

After they cleansed their hands, they could they re-examine them under the light to see if any remnant of the powder was left, emphasizing the necessity for thorough washing. Eight -year old Jessica Behler donned a surgical mask, gown, and gloves while Schrantz explained how the gear protects against the spreading of germs and disease in a hospital setting. Schrantz also explained the order in which each piece of protective gear should be put on and taken off. Earlier in the day, the children used laparoscopic equipment used in surgery, visited the emergency room, and learned about physical therapy to keep healthy and active. They also

viewed x-rays as part of the Imaging Services Department tour. To complete the day, each child also met their parent for lunch and made a tie-dye tee shirt to commemorate the day. At each hospital, the staff from the department of human resources coordinated the day’s activities.

Chautauqua County Legislator Fred Croscut is seeking re-election for Legislator representing the new District 18, which includes the Town of Sherman and most of the Towns of Chautauqua and Mina, and the Villages of Sherman and Mayville. Croscut will be seeking the Republican nomination in the primary on Tuesday, September 10 in these towns. Croscut has served on the Legislature for 16 years and as a County Legislator, he has held numerous positions including Chairman of the Legislature and Minority Leader. He is also a former member of the Public Safety Committee and currently serves as Chairman of the Planning and Economic Development Committee. He presently is a liaison to the County Traffic Safety Board and is a member of the County of Chautauqua Industrial Development Agency (CCIDA) Board of Directors, CCIDA Loan Committee, Agriculture Advisory Board of Sherman Central School, Farmland Protection Board, Chautauqua Lake Snowmobile Club, and Olive Lodge 575 of Free and Accepted Masons of Sherman. He has also served on the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Mounted Division for 35 years, where he served several years as First Lieutenant; has been Chairman of the Chautauqua County Soil and Water Conservation District Board of Directors for the past four years, and is a lifelong member of the Farm Bureau, where he served as Director prior to becoming a County Legislator. He continues to work hard for the agriculture industry through his membership on the New York State Association of Counties’ Blue Ribbon Task Force and continues to recognize the importance of Chautauqua Lake as an economic driver and the need to protect the lake from erosion and sedimentation through his work on the steering committee of the Chautauqua Lake Management Group. Croscut was the first legislator to meet with Department of Public Facilities Director George Spanos and the County Executive Greg Edwards when the discussion of the closing of the Sherman Shop was

made public. Responding to his constituents concerns, Croscut met with the employees of the Sherman Shop and participated in a town meeting which has now led to the closing being reconsidered and a study to analyze all services provided by the village, town, and county to fi nd the most economical and efficient way to provide these services. Before being elected to the legislature, Croscut served 22 years on the Sherman School Board, where he served for two years as the Board President. He was also a member of the Chautauqua County School Boards, where he served two years as president and eight years as State Legislature liaison. In addition, Croscut is a former member of the Chautauqua County Red Cross Board of Directors, Cornell Co-operative Extension Board, and the Sherman Stanley Hose Fire Department, where he served as president for four years. “All of the positions I have held in the County have given me great insight to the hard work it takes to create jobs in the county and to continue to maintain new and existing businesses,” said Croscut. “My extensive knowledge of agricultural and lake issues have helped me represent the two biggest industries in Chautauqua County which are agriculture and tourism. I would consider it an honor and a privilege to continue to serve the residents of the Town and Sherman and the majority of the Towns of Chautauqua and Mina, and the Villages of Sherman and Mayville.” Croscut said that if elected, he will continue to work with Legislators without partisan politics to promote economic development, lower property taxes, and keep Chautauqua County a great place to live, work, and raise a family. A lifelong resident of Sherman, Croscut continued the operation of his family’s farm and owned and operated a 90 cow dairy operation for 40 years. He is a 1967 graduate of Sherman Central School and 1969 graduate of Alfred Ag &Tech with a degree in Animal Husbandry. He and his wife Shelley reside in Sherman. They have three adult children and two granddaughters.

After one long evening of many singers, Marsh joked with friends about a world record for the song. Research determined a record of 332 verses and singers, set in Milan, Italy in 2009. And so, with the co-sponsorship of Allegany State Park, was born the “Sally’s Hootenanny World Record Attempt 2013.” Set for 3 p.m. Saturday, August 17 at the Quaker Amphitheatre, Sally Marsh, a troop of friends, and an army of volunteers plan on breaking that world record.

Alternative medicines are another form of nurturing that women often indulge in when looking to take care of themselves. Modern medicine can be sterile and distant, while a more holistic approach appeals to women as their bodies change with each passing decade of their lives. Massage, Reiki therapy, acupuncture, aromatherapy, yoga and energy healing are all forms of alternative medicines that nurture and replenish the body, ridding it of toxins and negative energies using ancient methods and teachings. While nurturing the body is crucial, the mind and spirit require nurturing as well. Simple meditation like that found in yoga helps to de-stress a busy mind. Drumming and chanting can also be meditative and result in similar feelings of calm and lightness. For the spirit, more traditional women may fi nd solace in

portunity to travel to Australia, working for a winery he describes as a “topnotch, brand new facility.” Although the process was the same, the equipment used there and the climate for grape growing was entirely different than his experience at home. Kane describes the divergent experiences as “eye opening.” Referring to Presque, he says, “It was nice seeing a Mom and Pop facility that has grown through the years and then go to Australia and see something completely different - it was state of the art.” Production at the Australian winery was close to a million gallons compared with 50,000 gallons annually in Northeast. He concludes: “If you can grown grapes and make wine on the east coast, you can do it anywhere in the world.” In 2011, Kane and his wife Nicki, with Mike and Marion as partners, opened 21 Brix amidst the vineyards and cherry orchards of Olde Chautauqua Farms.

The Solution to Hard Times

Rev. Tim Stahlman Family Church Jamestown

Too often Christians are begging God to do something or provide something that He has already done. Hebrews 4:3 says, “…the works were finished from the foundation of the world.” When did God meet your every need? When did He provide your healing? When was it that God decided He wanted to do something great with your life? When you were born? No! It was before the earth was ever created. God has already made you an over comer before the mountains or oceans ever came into existence. Romans 4:17 gives us amazing insight into the workings of God’s mind. It says, “…God, who quickens the dead and calls

those things that be not as though they were.” The word “calls” in this verse means to “bid forth” or “command into place.” God has already called forth and commanded our victory even when it doesn’t look that way in our natural circumstances. That means that right now there isn’t a problem in your life that God hasn’t already solved. We are not waiting on God to give us answers; He is waiting for us to believe His solutions. Hebrews 4:2 says, “For unto us was the gospel preached as well as unto them but the word preached did not profit them not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.” Notice this verse is describing two groups of people who both heard the gospel of God’s delivering power. Only one group

profited from the message and the other group missed out on what God had for them. What was the variable that provided the solution? Was it the gospel alone? No, it was the gospel plus faith in those that heard it. So it’s possible for you to have knowledge of God’s Word but still not benefit from it. The Word only profits you when you act on it in faith. The Bible is the written transcript of what God declared for you before the creation of the world. 2 Corinthians 1:20 says, “For all the promises of God are yes in Him (Christ)…” Jesus came to be our assurance that God would give us everything His Word promises. What has God declared about your health? Psalm 103:2-3 says,

“Bless the Lord, O my soul and forget not all His benefits, Who forgives all my sins; Who heals all my diseases.” Not only does God promise to forgive me of every sin but He said He would heal my body. What about your financial situation? Proverbs 3:9-10 says, “Honor the Lord with your substance and with the first fruits of all your income. So shall your barns be fi lled with plenty and your vats shall burst forth with new wine.” We must practice these verses with faith. That means we speak them as God speaks them. We declare them as He declares them. We do not stop talking and acting on these solutions until every trial is under our feet!

SENIOR SECTION pows, continued From pG 1 more, but information was trickling in, and not what he expected. All that was about to change when he went to place an ad in a local paper which then decided to print a story on Corbett and his students, who were seeking people who knew more about the camps. After the article ran in February of 2007, he says his phone started ringing and didn’t stop until he had talked to 50 people who had recollections of the camp or had actually worked alongside the prisoners on farms or local factories. What Corbett set out to do – create a documentary also changed - as more first hand accounts became available. The oral histories that resulted, he believes, were ultimately a better thing. One of the misconceptions he initially had was that the Dunkirk camp was the only one in the county. That was shattered when someone informed him that Italians had been at the POW camps. He knew Germans had been in Dunkirk. That information lead to the finding that Brocton actually had the first POW camp in the area, which housed the

Although armed guards were at the camps they weren’t exactly necessary. “I thought Nazi’s were bad people, they couldn’t have 320 N. Main St. • Jamestown, NY

been liked.” In fact, many recounting memories of the camp in the video spoke about working side-by-side among detainees, or giving them candy through the fences. Also, those who told their stories stated that most area folks realized these young men had a duty to their country, just as Americans were serving out their duty overseas. The video included accounts by local residents Emerson Cobb, Ed Sunday, Frank Lisa Sr., Mary Tripi, Loretta Madurski, Walter Pazda Jr., Richard Agle, Robert Tadt, Walter Hanlin, Robert Manzella, Harold Synder and Ralph Wadeley. Mary Trippi, of Fredonia who was present at the event, was intro-

duced as an interpreter for the camp, which housed the Italians. Frank Lisa, a medic at the camp, said in the video that he used to take care of the 40 enlisted men and 400 prisoners at the fairgrounds. He said they were always treated in accordance with the Geneva Convention mandates and paid the going rate for their labor. They were also well fed. Many recalled how prisoners were assigned to the local farms and factories, one being Redwing in Fredonia. In fact, the prisoners provided the much-needed labor to a work force badly depleted by the war, and greatly helped the econo-

We’re outgrowing the location- but that’s a great problem to have.” Bringing in the Big Guns As musical performances and entertainment have become trademarks of the Farm Festival, Thompson and her team have pulled out all the stops to bring in some great shows for this year’s festival goers. “Terry Buchwald will, of course, be there for our Saturday night show,” said Thompson. “People love Terry, and we wouldn’t think of not having him there. The other show we’re really excited about is Beatlemania.” Now, before you roll your eyes, this isn’t just any ol’ Beatles act. Beatlemania Now, who is slated to perform Friday night at 7 p.m. on the main stage, is one of the top rated Beatles

to have their show here.” To help with the costs that are incurred from the show, and the festival as a whole, the planning committee is offering folks a chance to win. The Fredonia Farm Festival 57 Chevrolet Custom Built Golf Cart has been on display around the county. Folks can enter to

win for only $10, and all the funds go toward the festival. This year, there are some other new tents that will be on site at Barker Commons as part of the festival. The Fredonia Fire Department, as well as some of social clubs, will be there searching for volunteers, a group

of people that seem to be becoming increasingly scarce. “We’d love to have more volunteers to help with the Festival,” said Thompson. “Groups all over are in need of more volunteers.” Anyone who wants to volunteer for the Farm Festival committee, or to help on site, can visit their Facebook page (www.facebook.

Come out to celebrate the end of the summer months, enjoy friends and family, and see what’s going on in one of the largest community events the north county has to offer.

Liberty Vineyards to Host “dine in the Vines” next weekend laid-back eVeninG will Feature delicious wine and Food at sunset in sheridan By Daniel Meyer Star Contributed Writer

Liberty Vineyards & Winery will host their annual “Dine In The Vines” event later this month as participants will enjoy a relaxing evening featuring a prime rib dinner and award-winning wines in the Town of Sheridan. Despite doubling the capacity of the special dinner outing, the event sold out weeks ago, a testament to the outstanding reputation the one-night-wine-anddine has received from those who have been fortunate enough to enjoy the meal and all of the ambience that comes with it. Participants will begin their evening on Saturday, August 24 by sampling a variety of Liberty Vineyards & Winery wines in the tasting room. While sampling, information will be distributed with details about each wine as the winemakers answer questions before leading a tour of the wine making facility. Weather permitting, after

the wine tasting and serving of bacon-wrapped water chestnuts as a light appetizer, guests will head out to the vineyards for a delicious dinner prepared by 3 C’s Catering. The dinner will be moved inside of the winery in case of inclement weather. The meal will include a full prime rib dinner that will consist of a tossed salad, a stuffed baked potato, a vegetable and a glass of wine, while a delicious dessert brownie and ice cream will be served once the plates are cleared. “Dine in the Vines is our annual prime rib dinner in the vineyards,” said Beth Margolis, marketing and special events manager for Liberty Vineyards. “This laid-back evening of delicious wine and food has grown every year. We nearly doubled our capacity for this year’s event and still sold out a couple of weeks ahead of time. The people who come to this dinner come back again and again. Guests will enjoy a delicious sunset dinner in the vineyards,

while learning a bit about our wines and wine and food pairing.” Located at 2861 Route 20 in Sheridan, Liberty Vineyards & Winery is family owned and committed to producing award-winning wines for every palate. All of their wines are made using locally-grown grapes, most of them from the family’s own vineyards, some of which have been in the family since the 1860s. Their wine tasting room is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. In the hustle-and-bustle world of being located in the heart of Lake Erie Wine Country and on the Chautauqua-Lake Erie Wine Trail, the owners of Liberty Vineyards & Winery enjoy the opportunity to take some time to chat with the Dine In The Vines participants. “It’s great for us to have a chance to interact with our winery friends and guests and answer questions about wine and winemaking,” said Margolis.

If you have used the Internet much you have undoubtedly come across Wikipedia. If you haven’t run across this site, you should definitely go to It is one of the best online encyclopedias in the world and it is free. What makes Wikipedia so special is that it is the result of a collaborative effort of thousands of volunteers who have created a high quality, openly reviewable product that anyone can update. The concept of a Wiki was first developed by a computer programmer, Ward Cunningham, in 1994. Cunningham basically liked the idea of taking electronic pages of information and categorizing

them or stacking them together. He used a program developed by Apple, Hypercard, to do this function. Hypercard was somewhat limited though as it was really only meant for a single person to use and Cunningham wanted to add a collaborative element to his program. The name “wiki” is a Hawaiian term for the word, “quick”. Cunningham came up with this name of his program from one of the bus shuttle companies in Hawaii. Since Wikis do invite collaboration, they are always open to abuse that can go unnoticed, but most Wikis have a team of moderators that preside over their site. It is important that Wikipedia maintains its integrity, so if someone wants to edit or add to Wikipedia, those recent changes are documented, logged, and reviewed by another volunteer for accuracy. If you want to create your own wiki, you can go to The site is free and is primarily marketed toward education, but you can click a link in the upper right corner of the site that will take you to a general use section of Wikispaces. I have used this site and it is very simple and user-friendly.

be outlined by presenters Jon Schmitz, Jon Martonis, and county historian Michelle Henry. The series focuses on the first settler, the earliest years of settlement, the Holland Land Company, and the formation of Chautauqua County’s government.

Participants can choose a session that meets Mondays, September 9-November 11, or Tuesdays, September 10-November 12. Sessions meet from 7-9 p.m. in the Carnahan Center. To register, call JCC’s Center for Continuing Education, 338-1005.

Students will learn to cast on, knit and purl, create crochet stitches, and follow a pattern. Those who are knitting should bring 10inch size 8 needles, worsted weight yarn, scissors, and a notebook. Crocheters need to bring a size H hook.

So maybe at this point you are asking, “what would I ever use a wiki for?” Keep in mind that wikis can do a couple of things really well: they organize information and they allow for collaboration. Wikis could be used for a group to collect recipes and make their own online cookbook. You could use it in a writing club where people write stories and read each other’s work. Wikis can be used in business to place policies and procedures. Wikis could also be used in business for project management as they can hold attachments like documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. Sometimes when a group of people need to share fi les or information, wikis are just much more efficient than email. Next time you are online, check Wikipedia or create your own wiki. It is fun and easy to do.

Susan Amatuzzo, a SUNY Fredonia graduate and former director at the Jamestown YWCA, has returned to campus as the new director of the Campus and Community Children’s Center. “The childcare center has always been the premier center in my eyes,” Ms. Amatuzzo said, “and I am proud to say that the childcare center is a part of our university.” Prior to beginning her new position in June, Amatuzzo was director of Early Childcare and Education at the Jamestown YWCA. She supervised all staff members of the day care center, which serves children six weeks through 12 years of age and also operates a summer camp. She previously worked as a substitute teacher in the Fredonia and Cassadaga Valley school districts.

Amatuzzo earned a bachelor’s degree in Childhood Education, with an Early Childhood Concentration, from SUNY Fredonia in 2006. She added a master’s in Education/Literacy from SUNY Albany in 2011. She was born and raised in Fredonia and graduated from Fredonia High School in 1985.

At the Campus and Community Children’s Center, Amatuzzo supervises a staff of 40 that provides programming, supervision and activities for up to 70 children, from eight weeks through 12 years of age. She succeeds longtime director Judy Metzger, who retired earlier this year.

Without community support NCCF could not support the community through its grants program fulfilling its mission to “enhance the area in which we live and work.” The NCCF is one of nearly 700 community foundations in the United States today. Founded in 1986, the NCCF is dedicated to improving the community through the promotion of local philanthropy, strategic grantmaking and community leadership. Served by a small staff and governed by an all-volunteer board of directors, the organization has distributed over $9.1 million in the form of grants and scholarships within the community. Truly community in nature, the NCCF is an organization created by and for the people of northern Chautauqua County. For more information, visit or call us at 716-366-4892.

17th TRC Golf Classic Another Big Success

Jammers Enjoy Two-Game Cushion At Break By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

The Jamestown Jammers sent an impressive seven players to the New York-Penn League All-Star Game on Tuesday. The team justified that distinction with a league-best .615 winning percentage and a two-game division lead with a 32-20 record. It was a short week for the Jammers as the All-Star break was Monday and Tuesday, but the weekend prior was made up of the team’s longest bus ride of the season as it traveled to Vermont and Tri-City for three games each against the Lake Monsters and the ValleyCats. After splitting the fi rst two games of the series in Vermont, the Jammers leaned on the arm of Chad Kuhl for a seriesclinching 4-0 win. Kuhl spun fi ve one-hit shutout innings to earn his second win of the season.

It’s a great tournament that gets the mission of The Resource Center out into the public’s eye. At the same time it raises money for a very good cause in the TRC Foundation.” The mission of The Resource Center, according to its website, is “to support individuals with disabilities and other challenges in achieving maximum independence, contributing to their community, experiencing lifelong growth and enjoying quality of life.” “The money raised goes into an endowment fund for the foundation,” Bender added. “Based on the charter of the foundation they’re allowed to spend so much of that each year.” The TRC Golf Classic has been held for 17 straight years







Kolb Shows Signs Of Progress In 2nd Day Of Practice By John Wawrow AP Sports Writer

Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb is showing signs of being a fast healer. A day after limping through his first practice since twisting his left knee, Kolb came out scrambling and firing one completion after another Tuesday. It was an impressive enough outing for coach Doug Marrone to suggest the seventh-year quarterback is on track to play in Buffalo's preseason game against Minnesota on Friday. ''I was happy today,'' Marrone said. ''He looked really good to the point where we're going to get him ready to play.'' Kolb had missed eight days of training camp and the Bills' preseason-opening 44-20 win at Indianapolis on Sunday after slipping on a wet rubber mat in practice Aug. 3.

It’s only preseason. Whether it’s to stop yourself from getting too excited about the Buffalo Bills’ chances in a weak AFC or whether it’s to stop yourself from burying quarterback E.J. Manuel as a bust every time he makes a mistake — just keeping telling yourself that it’s only preseason. It’s hasn’t exactly been a secret that Manuel is the future of the franchise since he was drafted No. 16 overall in the 2013 NFL Draft. The rookie showed resilience if nothing else in his first live NFL action. He started poorly. Okay, he started very poorly. The offense was only able to move the ball when Manuel was turning around and handing the ball off to C.J. Spiller. Even that strategy backfired when the two botched an exchange and Manuel was charged with a fumble. CONTINUED ON PG 4



Lake Erie Fishing Hotline Contributed Article Department of Environmental Conservation

The hot walleye bite near Buffalo has fi zzled out and the large schools of walleye have moved west. Anglers trolling from the Buffalo departure buoy along the international line towards Sturgeon Point are now catching mostly smallmouth bass, some undersized walleye and the occasional keeper. The better walleye action can now be found between Cattaraugus Creek and the Pennsylvania border near Barcelona. Dunkirk anglers are reporting decent walleye catches in 7085 feet of water, on stickbaits and worm harnesses run 55-70 feet down. Walleye are scattered off Dunkirk, so a may take a little searching. Fishing quality has been building over the past 10 days off Barcelona, and trollers are now seeing good catches of walleye, including some limits. Walleye are widespread with anglers catching fi sh in 75-140 feet of water. Catches are concentrated around the thermocline (60-70 feet down), so stickbaits and worm harnesses run between 55-75 feet down is a good bet. Barcelona trollers also see the occasional steelhead, brown trout or lake trout mixed in with their walleye catches. Anglers should not overlook the shallower reef areas when searching for walleye. Some walleye anglers do quite well around reefs by casting and retrieving weight forward spinners tipped with nightcrawlers or by bottom bouncing with worm harnesses along the deeper edges. Most of the reef walleye caught are from the 2010 year class (16"-18"), with the occasional larger fish mixed in. Good reef spots include Seneca Shoal, Myers Reef and Evans Bar. Yellow perch reports remain scarce. However, some decent catches have be had lately, just west of Cattaraugus Creek in 5060 feet of water. Emerald shiners are the best bait, if you can find them. There has not been much chatter about smallmouth bass either. When fishing for smallmouth bass in late summer, keying on deeper water structure (25-45 feet of water) is a good bet. Drop-shot rigs combined with crayfish, minnows, tube jigs or other plastic baits works well. For more information see the Smallmouth Bass Fishing on Lake Erie page. A group of anglers targeting lake trout out of Barcelona did very well last week. Spoons trolled near the bottom produced good catches at depths over 80 feet. The larger lake trout were in the 18-22 pound range. Earlier this week, a DEC survey showed a strong concentration of lake trout outside Brocton Shoal

in 80-115 feet of water, especially between 90-95 feet of water. August is the top month to fish Lake Erie for this underutilized species. Head for prime depths of over 90 feet deep, northwest of Dunkirk to the PA border. Downriggers with spoons run near the bottom is a very productive method, although lakers may also be suspended in the water column.

After fi nishing second in the conference tournament, the Pioneers earned an at-large bid into the NCAA Division III Tournament for the fi rst time in program-history.

“Obviously sport fishing is important in our area,” Goodell continued. “It brings in hundreds of thousands of dollars every year. It’s a great concern to maintain the quality of the Great Lakes. It’s a partnership that involves all of us. We look forward to continuing that partnership.” After the fishing was done and the boats were back in the harbor, the group migrated to the Conservation Club where everyone was treated to a fantastic fish fry lunch. Before eating, a few experts were given a chance to further educate people. Charter captains Tom Marks

and Larry Jones detailed improvements that could be done to the area docks and Rich Davenport of the Erie County Fish Advisory Council spoke of the direct economic impact that fishing has on our area. “I had a great time not only fishing but also learning a lot about the industry,” Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz said. It’s an industry that shouldn’t just bring in money from outside of New York State. Take a Saturday morning off and charter a boat to experience the joys of fishing on Lake Erie for yourself.

National Marina "Scout Lake Day" was held on Aug. 3 at Chautauqua Marina in Mayville. The event was sponsored by Chautauqua Marina and hosted by Cub Scout Pack 126. More than 60 youth participated in the Youth Fishing Contest and 49 participants in the Safe Boating Course. Participants, family and friends gather for a day full of events and activities. Many of the youth learned how to tie a fly knot for the first time. Assemblyman Andrew Goodell attended the event and spoke with participants in the New York State Safe Boating course about operating a boat safely and the importance of being a good captain.

BILLS HELD 90 MINUTE SCRIMMAGE ON MONDAY CONTINUED FROM PG 1 The veteran free-agent addition is competing with rookie fi rst-round draft pick EJ Manuel for the starting job. The update wasn't as positive for receiver T.J. Graham, who was held out of practice a day after straining his groin. Marrone doesn't expect Graham to return until after the game Friday. The Bills are already down their two most experienced receivers. Starter Stevie Johnson is expected to miss at least another week after pulling his left hamstring on Aug. 2. Brad Smith is also sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Also Tuesday, starting safety Aaron Williams limped off the field and did not return after experiencing what Marrone called cramps. Reserve offensive lineman Thomas Welch twisted his ankle near the end of practice while attempting to catch a pass in the end zone on a tackleeligible play. Welch was shoved down by linebacker Nigel Bradham before he could make the catch. Kolb looked like a completely different player than a day earlier, when he hobbled around the backfield and struggled to complete a pass.

Wearing only a sleeve on his left knee on Tuesday, Kolb showed great mobility to avoid being sacked by Alex Carrington. On the next snap, Kolb dropped back and completed a long pass over the middle to Marquise Goodwin. Later, he hit Da'Rick Rogers on another deep pass. ''He had some great reads, some great throws, and loved having him out there,'' offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said. ''It was good to have him back.'' Before practice, the Bills released reserve punter Brian Stahovich, in a move that opened the door for

incumbent Shawn Powell to retain his job. Powell enters his second season after replacing long-time veteran Brian Moorman a month into last season. The Bills had signed Stahovich following a minicamp tryout in April in order to compete with Powell. At Indianapolis on Sunday, Stahovich averaged 41.3 yards on three punts, landing two of them inside the 20. Stahovich played at San Diego State, and was initially signed with Indianapolis last year. He was cut before the start of the season.

plan, Spiller proved he hasn’t last a step as he broke runs of 15 and 17 yards on his first two carries. Oddly enough, the most impressive player on either side of the ball was probably that ‘other’ rookie quarterback — Jeff Tuel. The 6-foot-3 rookie out of Washington State was 19-for-23 for 212 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Yes, that all came in the second half against the Colts’ third-string defense, but he can’t control who he’s playing against, all he can do is go out and move the offense. He did all that was asked of him and more. I don’t think any kind of quarterback battle between Manuel and Tuel is likely to happen, but how great

of a story would it be if Manuel was riding the pine and Tuel was getting snaps in Week 1? Again folks, it’s the first game of the preseason. Unless the team (or a team within the division) suffers a major injury, let’s wait until the season starts to jump to an extreme. No, one preseason game is probably too early to say the Bills are going to go 19-0 and win the Super Bowl or say the Bills are going to go 0-16 on their way to the first pick in the 2014 draft. It’s early, but at least the season is officially here. Stefan Gestwicki is the sports editor of the Chautauqua Star. Comments on this article or any other can be directed to stefan.

COMMENTARY CONTINUED FROM PG 1 With presumed starter Kevin Kolb sidelined after a freak injury caused by a rubber mat, Manuel got the chance to play the entire first half. It was the two minutes before halftime that provided Manuel’s brightest flash of brilliance. Pinned at their own 5-yard line, the Bills marched 95 yards to the go-ahead touchdown — a 17-yard strike from Manuel to Dorin Dickerson.

It was certainly a day of ups and downs for the rookie signal caller, but if anyone expected anything different, they’re delusional. First off, he was the only quarterback taken in the first round and even that was a shocker to nearly everyone. This isn’t a guy as polished as an Andrew Luck or as dynamic as a Robert Griffi n III. Secondly, all rookies go through an adjustment period. It’s just not the same game as in college. Bills fans need to tamper their expectations when it comes to Manuel. He has the potential to be very good — elite even — but it’s probably not going to be this year. Also working in Manuel’s favor was the fact that No. 1 wide receiver Stevie

Johnson sat out the game with an injury. Though fellow rookie Robert Woods looked very strong and should give the Bills another weapon in what could be a potent offense. I’m not sure how the Bills do it, but they always have a dynamic kick return game. I thought the return game was the only reason to bring back Leodis McKelvin because let’s face it, the guy isn’t exactly a shutdown corner. But after watching Marquise Goodwin break a couple tackles and racing 107 yards for a touchdown, I think I’d be okay if he returned kicks this year. I was worried a few years ago when the Bills let special teams coordinator Bobby April go, but apparently he wasn’t the brains of the

outfit after all. The defense looked improved, too. Hopefully new coordinator Mike Pettine can implement some aggression into a unit that quite frankly was terrible last year — and every year for as long as I can remember. Pettine might prove to be the biggest addition to the Bills in the offseason. Forget Manuel, Woods, linebacker Manny Lawson — Pettine can really help get the most out of Mario Williams, Marcel Dareus and others who struggled last year. The other new coordinator, offensive coordinator Nathanial Hackett, promised to give the ball to Spiller until he pukes. While a preseason game isn’t exactly the best test of that game-




Dufner Holds Off Furyk At PGA For First Major Title MLB Power Rankings By Paul Newberry AP National Writer

Jason Dufner walked off the 18th green, after casually pumping his fists in what passed for a raucous celebration. There was a familiar face waiting for him. The last time they met in this situation, it was Keegan Bradley accepting the Wanamaker Trophy. This time, it belonged to Dufner. Granted, it was two years later than it should have been. That only made it sweeter. ''I'm proud of you,'' Bradley said, giving his buddy a hug. ''Thanks a lot,'' Dufner replied. ''It means a lot for you to be here.'' With ice in his veins and a determination not to let another opportunity slip away, Dufner claimed his first major title with a two-shot victory over Jim Furyk in the PGA Championship on Sunday. There was a certain symmetry to the way it went down, for Dufner to get the biggest win of his career in the very same tournament that produced his biggest heartache. On a Sunday afternoon in 2011, Dufner strolled to the 15th tee at Atlanta Athletic Club with a four-shot lead in the PGA. He promptly dumped his ball in the water, while Bradley started making birdies up ahead. By the time they had both finished 72 holes, it was all even. Bradley, of course, won the playoff and Dufner kept insisting he would get another chance. ''I was probably over what happened in Atlanta, 95 percent of it, by the time we got back home,'' he said. But, he conceded, ''You always carry those scars with you.'' They didn't show on a warm, sunny day at Oak Hill, a venerable course that Dufner considers one of his favorites. After he rolled in a testy little 3-footer to save par at the first hole, he went on cruise control. His tee shots were long and accurate. His irons were dead solid per-

that short of a putt to cap this off.'' Henrik Stenson (70) finished three shots back, missing a chance to become the first Swedish man to capture a major championship. Another Swede, Jonas Blixt, was four behind the winner. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson were long gone by the time the leaders teed off. Woods' winless streak in the majors is now more than five years long, and this one was especially perplexing. Just a week earlier, he wrapped up a dominating seven-stroke victory at the Bridgestone. He never got anything going at Oak Hill, putting up four Jason Dufner holds up the Wanamaker Trophy after straight rounds in the 70s winning the PGA Championship golf tournament at Oak and fi nishing a whopping Hill Country Club, Sunday, Aug. 11, 2013, in Pittsford, N.Y. 14 shots behind Dufner.

team that includes LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Ray Allen. Oden was thrilled to play three consecutive games of full-court, 4-on-4 last week. The goal is simple: play basketball again. ''I'm 25 (years old) now ... I've got an old body,'' Oden said. ''I understand. My body is not going to be (like it was) when I was 18 and able to run all day and jump over people. I can't do that. It's just not going to happen. My knees, the wear and tear, I understand that. ''But I'm a play as hard as I can. I'm going to try to jump over people and I'm going to try to run all day. If my body lets me, I'll do it.'' St. Vincent Sports Performance has been the center of Oden's rehab efforts. That's where he trained to prepare for the 2007 draft with Mike Conley, Jr. and Carl Landry. Mario Chalmers, Gordon Hayward, Alec Burks and Patrick Patterson have also gone through the NBA predraft training program at the facility. Executive director Ralph Reiff said Oden is no longer

rehabbing from the surgeries. He's fully training to prepare for the season. The Heat had their staff at the facility monitoring Oden well before he signed. Everyone knows his status. ''My body's just getting used to playing again,'' Oden said. ''My knees do feel good. I'm able to walk. I'm running, jumping. I'm doing everything. ''It's going to maintenance for the rest of my life. I've got to warm up to warm up and then play. I understand that now.'' So, why Miami? San Antonio, Cleveland, Dallas, New Orleans, Sacramento and Atlanta all showed interest. That smile reappeared, frustration and disappointment a distant memory, before Oden answered. ''My friends told me, 'If you take out the possibility of getting hurt again, what other choice is there?''' Oden said. ''If I take out the possibility of getting hurt, why would I not play with the champs? ''If LeBron decides to get another ring, I get one too, now.''

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 73-47 Thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the fan that fell to his death at Turner Field. 2) Boston Red Sox 72-49 The Sox continue their run at having home field advantage throughout the playoffs. 3) Los Angeles Dodgers 69-50 You know a team is hot when it can face Matt Harvey and emerge with a victory. 4) Detroit Tigers 69-49 A threegame skid hasn’t hurt too much as MoTown enjoys as six-game division lead. 5) St. Louis Cardinals 68-50 You just get the feeling that this team is going to go on a tear any day now. 6) Pittsburgh Pirates 70-48 Let’s just hope Starling Marte’s dropped fly ball Monday doesn’t become a Sid Bream. 7) Texas Rangers 69-51 Getting Alex Rios to replace Nelson Cruz was a huge step towards winning the West. 8) Cincinnati Reds 67-52 Quietly the Reds are just 3.5 games back in the ultracompetitive N.L. Central. 9) Oakland Athletics 67-51 The A’s needed to win three of four against Toronto and that’s exactly what happened. 10) Kansas City Royals 62-55 They’re off to a 9-4 start to August but a five-game set in Detroit looms this weekend. 11) Cleveland Indians 64-56 That six-game losing streak was a shame but there’s plenty of time for Tribe to rebound. 12) Tampa Bay Rays 66-51 Maybe 12th is overreacting to a 6-game losing streak but they have to get healthy for sure. 13) Baltimore Orioles 65-54 Say what you want, but Chris Davis launching home runs makes baseball more fun. 14) Arizona Diamondbacks 61-57 To those of you who thought the N.L. playoff teams were set, meet Paul Goldschmidt, MVP. 15) New York Yankees 61-57 That Alfonso Soriano pickup looks better and better with each ball he hits out of the park. 16) Washington Nationals 58-60 Before we declare them back in the race, try to remember they only beat Philly and San Fran. 17) New York Mets 54-63 David Wright gets hurt. So what do the Mets do? How about go on a tidy little 5-1 run. 18) Colorado Rockies 56-85 Carlos Gonzalez gets hurt. So what do the Rockies do? How about sweep the Pirates. 19) San Diego Padres 54-65 Good news: They’re 31-27 at home. Bad news: They’re really, really bad on the road. 20) Seattle Mariners 55-63 Is it unthinkable that this team fi nishes at .500? They’re 7 games under at this point. 21) Toronto Blue Jays 54-65 Looking at this roster, I still can’t believe that they’re this bad. Wait ‘til next year…I guess. 22) Los Angeles Angels 53-65 Every time I look at the standings, the Angels have lost 3 in a row. Do they ever win? 23) Philadelphia Phillies 53-66 Chase Utley must love the city of Philadelphia. Why else would he stay? 24) San Francisco Giants 52-66 My nephew went to a Giants game for his 4th birthday. That’s all I got. Disappointment. 25) Milwaukee Brewers 52-67 Getting Aramis Ramirez back at least helps them play the role of spoiler this time of year. 26) Chicago Cubs 52-67 The Cubbies just went an astounding 33 innings without scoring a run at home. 27) Minnesota Twins 53-64 Rookie Andrew Albers has allowed six hits in 17.1 innings to open his career. Kudos. 28) Miami Marlins 45-73 Jose Fernandez’s starts are right there with Harvey in terms of can’t-miss-itude. 29) Chicago White Sox 46-72 Even though they’re out of the race, you know their fans are happy when they beat Detroit. 30) Houston Astros 38-80 My mom always said if I don’t have something nice to say don’t say anything.
