“teaching is the core” Chautauqua laKe Central sChool offiCials DisCuss neW Core CurriCuluM stanDarDs By Patricia Pihl Managing Editor

The recent release of last year’s test scores for New York State’s new Common Core Learning Standards has area school districts gearing up for the coming year with a new, challenging curriculum handed down by the state to assist schools in raising the bar for student performance in English Language Arts and Math. According to a report by State Education Commissioner John B. King earlier this month, only 31% of students across the state met or exceeded ELA and Math proficiency in grades 3-8, in accordance with the new standards. As dire as that news first seemed, state and local education officials were quick to put the news in context for parents and families. In a statement, King stated, “the change in test scores does not mean that students are learning less or that teachers are performing worse than last year.” He went on to explain that “the old scores are from an old test based on the former standards, adding, “this is a new beginning and starting point.” Educators were also quick to point out that assigning judgment to the results may have been premature since materials to support the common core testing have only

Superintendent of Chautauqua Lake Central Schools, Benjamin Spitzer said the district is seeing “the first glimpse of the full implementation of the new standards.” To some extent, Spitzer said, “the cart was put in front of the horse,” since test scores were reported before the common core curriculum materials were made fully available.

High Honors

alleGany resiDent honoreD By senator younG for over 50 years of CoMMunity involveMent Contributed Article



From the PTA and ski clubs to local colleges and historical associations, Francie Potter has devoted herself to public service in Allegany and Cattaraugus Counties through a multitude of groups and organizations. For her decades of selfless service, she was selected by Senator Catharine Young (R,C,IOlean) as the New York State Senate’s 2013 Woman of Distinction for the 57th Senate District. “Francie Potter’s lifetime of giving back to her community should inspire us all. She is the type of person where those who cross paths with her always remember her wit, sense of humor and smile. Given the many hats she wears, Francie deserves our gratitude and recognition. Thank you and congratulations to Francie,” said Senator Young. “I am very honored to receive this award,” said Francie. “I really think that people, if they are able to, should volunteer in their communities where their abilities and talents can be put to use. I hope that what

I do benefits the community in some way, and can serve as an inspiration to encourage others to get involved in their communities.” Because Francie could not attend the Woman of Distinction ceremony held in Albany in May, she was honored with a reception held this evening at the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts at St. Bonaventure University in Allegany. At the ceremony in Albany on May 7, 2013, Francie and other distinguished women from across New York State were honored for their contributions to their communities. The New York State Senate Woman of Distinction honor was created in 1998 to annually pay tribute to those women in our state who have demonstrated remarkable character, initiative and commitment in serving their neighbors, strengthening our communities, and acting as role models that all should strive to emulate. Since moving to Allegany in 1956, Francie always has been a major part of the community and devotes her time and talents to others in a wide variety of ways.

Francie was born in Ann Arbor Michigan where she lived for 20 years. She attended the University of Michigan where she also met her husband Bob in 1954. In 1956, they moved to Bob’s hometown of Allegany so they could both help with the family business, Potter Lumber Company. Three of their children now work at Potter Lumber, which has been a family-run business for over 100 years. Francie and Bob had six children together, and as the children became involved in activities growing up, Francie was tireless in supporting them all. In what she calls her “first gig,” Francie was President of the Parent Teacher Association at Allegany School District, where her children attended. Several of the children also began competitive ski racing at the Wing Hollow Ski Area, which led to Francie joining the Niagara Frontier Ski Council as a board member. This group was charged with governing the ski races that took place in Western New York. Because of her husband Bob’s love of cars, Francie also helped run the Allegheny Valley Sportscar

Association. She held the title of Secretary and wrote and edited their monthly newsletters. She also helped organize their monthly rallies. Francie also served as a Board Member and past President of the Mental Health Association in Cattaraugus County. During Francie’s years of involvement, the Mental Health Association ran summer camps and care services, providing valuable support to those with mental illness. The Allegany Area Historical Association has also been fortunate enough to benefit from Francie’s community involvement. Francie is the Association’s current president, and has been for 15 years. She is also a trustee and the editor of the Association newsletter. In this role, she also serves as the Chair of Allegany Heritage Days, a yearly festival with vendors and entertainment that coincides with the Allegany School District’s annual class reunions. Francie has been a parishioner at St. Bonaventure Church in Allegany for over 55 years and also served as a parish trustee

for 14 years. She continues to serve as a lector and Eucharistic minister. Francie also served as a board member of the Jamestown Community College Foundation for 14 years, which works independently in support of the mission of the college. She has also served on the board of the Olean Child Development Center, which provides after-school and all-day programs and classes for children. Also, for the last 18 years, Francie has been a volunteer at the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts at St. Bonaventure University and often guides tours for visiting school groups. “As an official New York State Senate Woman of Distinction, Francie Potter’s community involvement and selfless dedication to helping make our community a better place to live and raise a family will receive the special recognition that this honor confers, as a fitting expression of our gratitude and admiration,” said Senator Young.

Chautauqua County Humane Society Pet of the Week

Pets of the Week

This week we are featuring “Cyprus” and still more of our kitties. Cyprus is a 3 year old male Husky/lab mix. He is a nice dog that loves to go for walks. Cyprus could use some training on a few of the basic skills. He seems to like other dogs, but only calm, laid back ones. He would do best in a home that likes activity and can take him with. We are also fi nishing up our month long fee-waived cat special. We still have plenty of wonderful kitties looking for their forever home. So if you have been thinking about a cat, hurry in because time is running out. This special ends 8/31. So if you think you can give Cyprus the home he needs or share your heart with a kitten or cat, stop by the Strunk Road Adoption Center and meet all the pets waiting for you.

coMMunitY neWS 3 Grape discovery center announces September OFFER ENDING Grand opening CHAUTAUQUA STAR FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 2013

Contributed Article Ann Weidman

The public is cordially invited to attend the Westfield Grape Discovery Center’s Grand Opening, a mile west on Route 20, between 1:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13. Highlight of the afternoon will be the introduction of an exhibit room dedicated to the Star Family of Fredonia. This room will give visitors the opportunity to learn the history of the grape-growing business in the area with exhibits of the Concord grape and its cultivation from its beginning. Although the center’s conception was launched in 2008 with the purchase of a building, raising money for it took longer, thus its low-key – but official – opening on Memorial Day this year, according to Helen Baran, president of the Concord Grape Belt Heritage Association (CGBHA), originator of the project. “Without the help of (state) Senator Catharine Young, who was responsible for getting us a $1 million state grant, we would have taken longer,” she said. Other sizable monetary gifts for the non-profit endeavor came from Grower’s Cooperative, National Grape/Welch’s, the Baran Family, local grape farm-

Protecting Against Mosquito-Borne Illnesses Mosquito Pools Test Positive for illnesses in Chautauqua County Contributed Article CCDHHS

The Chautauqua County Department of Health & Human Services (CCDHHS) is urging residents to take precautions to avoid mosquito bites and protect themselves from potential exposure to the mosquitoborne illnesses West Nile Virus (WNV) and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE). The DHHS, Public Health Division, has received notification from the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) Arbovirus Laboratory of EEE and WNV positive mosquito pools in southern Chautauqua County. The NYSDOH has a robust mosquito surveillance program which includes regularly testing mosquito pools in various areas in the County and across New York State. While WNV was detected in a mosquito pool in the County in 2006 and 2012, this is the first time that EEE has been detected in Western New York. “The WNV and EEE are serious viral diseases that are transmitted to people through the bite of an infected mosquito. Having said that, they are different diseases caused by different viruses and transmitted by different mosquito species,” said Christine Schuyler, Director of CCDHHS. “The key to safeguarding against these illnesses is to take basic precautions to avoid mosquito bites,” said Schuyler. People are urged to follow these precautions to defend against mosquito bites: Use insect repellent properly. Those that contain DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus are most effective but should be used

with care. Read the product label and use according to package instructions. Limit outdoor activities in areas where mosquitoes are most active and between dusk and dawn which is the peak mosquito biting time. If you have to be outside, wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants, shoes and socks as weather permits. Repair or replace all window and door screens to keep mosquitoes outside. Reduce or eliminate all standing water. Empty or dispose of pails, cans, flower pots, or similar water-holding containers. Clear roof gutters, remove leaf debris from yards and gardens, and clean vegetation and debris from the edge of ponds. Turn over wheelbarrows and wading pools when not in use. Clean and chlorinate swimming pools, outdoor saunas and hot tubs and drain pool covers. Clean vegetation and debris from the edges of ponds Change the water in birdbaths and horse troughs twice a week. Dispose properly of old tires. The risk of contracting either the EEE virus or the WNV runs from June through September with peak activity late July to August. In the last 12 years, New York State has reported 490 human cases of the WNV with 37 fatalities as compared with only five reported human cases of EEE in the last 40 years, all of which were fatal. Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) is a rare illness in

humans but often a deadly disease. It is transmitted by mosquitoes and can affect humans, birds, horses and other mammals. Most people bitten by an infected mosquito will not develop any signs; however, of those who do, symptoms usually appear four to ten days later. Signs of EEE infection begin with a sudden headache, high fever, chills and vomiting. The illness may then progress into disorientation, seizures, coma or inflammation of the brain (encephalitis). It causes death in most cases; however, some people will survive the infection and have mild to severe brain damage for life. There is no specific treatment for EEE; care is based on symptoms. While people of all ages are at risk for EEE infection, children under age 15 and adults over age 50 have the greatest risk for contracting the severe disease. West Nile virus (WNV) West Nile virus (WNV) is also a mosquito-borne infection that can cause illness and occasionally death. Symptoms of the WNV usually develop within 3 to 14 days after exposure; however, it may take up to three weeks for signs to appear in those with weakened immune systems. Many people who contract WNV do not experience any type of illness; an estimated 20 percent of people who become infected will develop mild symptoms including fever, headache, body aches, vomiting, diarrhea and possibly a skin rash or swollen lymph glands. The person’s health usually improves after several days, but they may feel tired, weak and generally unwell for weeks. Less than 1 percent of people infected will

develop severe symptoms that affect the central nervous system. These include headache, high fever, neck stiffness, muscle weakness, disorientation, tremors, convulsions, paralysis, coma, or inflammation of the brain (encephalitis) or of the membranes of the brain and spinal cord (meningitis). Most people will recover completely from WNV, even from a severe infection although in rare cases, death can occur. While people of all ages are at risk for WNV infection, adults age 50 and older and people with certain medical conditions such as cancer, diabetes, hypertension, kidney disease, and organ transplants are at the greatest risk of developing serious symptoms. Vaccine There is no commercially available human vaccine for either WNV or EEE. The best way to protect yourself is to keep mosquitoes from biting you. EEE and WNV vaccines are available for horses in consultation with a veterinarian. For more information on West Nile Virus (WNV) and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), please visit: fact_sheet.htm fact_sheet.htm.

As mothers, we often conduct crisis intervention and try to reason with the bickering or upset child, but this can also backfire. Unless there is the fear of bloodshed between siblings, it’s best to not get sucked

into the meltdown drama, which can be designed simply to gain additional attention from the parent. Younger children are not always capable of resolving the issues alone and may require parental involvement to de-escalate the situation. The type of situation may determine which parent best address

the meltdown or it may depend “on who has the most patience that day”. For others (as in hormonal teenage girls), Dad’s presence or any attempt by Dad to resolve the meltdown can result in a worse scenario. Creative problem solving, calm communication and persistence are all tools called upon to de-escalate the morning meltdowns when they occur. Staggering shower or waking times, leaving early on the bus or putting out clothes and packing lunch the night before are all ways to prevent anticipated morning meltdowns and maintaining peace on a school morning. Rest assured, morning meltdowns are not uncommon and it’s normal to experience them in a household of school age kids. They are a test to our sanity as parents and a gentle reminder that the school year has began once again. Let the meltdowns begin.

RELIGION SECTION Keeping the Faith

Rev. Michael Lokietek Family Church Fredonia

Dear Pastor, does God punish us when we fail? My dear friend, I’m so glad that you asked this question. I’m sure that many of our readers have wondered about God’s response to our failings. If you’re like me, you feel pretty bad when you perceive that you have failed or not done your best. We can experience feelings of regret and guilt and spend time going over our actions, wishing that we would have done it differently. While we may feel that we deserve to be struggling, what is God’s response to our failure? Does He add to our sorrow by

infl icting us with His disapproval and punishment? Absolutely not! The Bible is very clear that God’s love for us is greater than any human father’s love towards his children (Matthew 7:7-11). Even though a parent’s love does not compare to God’s love, we can use it as an example. I have three daughters. I love them greatly and would gladly give my life to better theirs. Yet, my children were not born fully mature. They didn’t come potty trained, they couldn’t communicate well, and they couldn’t even walk. They failed (and will fail) many times before

they actually mastered any of these areas. Would I have been a good and loving father if I punished my girls when they fell while trying to take their first steps? Absolutely not! I was excited that they were trying. My rejoicing was based on their trying, not their failure. After they fell, I would hug them and say, “Let’s try it again!” God sees our Christian walk as we see our own children’s growth. We will all experience failure and mistakes as we learn to walk as God desires, but please know that God is cheering us on – not scolding us for our mistakes! The

Bible clearly says that God is not holding our mistakes against us (2 Corinthians 5:19). He knew we would fail so He made a way, through Jesus Christ, to allow for Fri forgiveness. 1 John 1:9 tells us that when we sin, all we need to do is 9 a confess it to God and He is faith- Gra ful to forgive us and encourage us 9am Farm to keep going! So submit your mistakes and fail- 10 a ings to God and ask for forgive- Craf ness and direction so you can do 11am Firs better. Take this encouragement Hom and know that no matter what, HeJoe loves you. Chu

ten traveling tips for the elderly By Leonard J. Hansen Aging Care

Travel may be one of the greatest gifts you can give Mom or Dad. The trip may be to visit other family and, particularly, grandkids and great grandchildren. It may be an adventure to a destination, aboard a cruise ship or even a return to a home of long ago. You may accompany your parent; or, if he or she can maintain some independence, the trip may be solo. Either way, there are 10 important steps to take: 1. Research and Plan Ahead Whether you will travel together or your parent will be solo, planning, reserving and confirming must be accomplished sooner rather than later. When the destination is resolved with target dates, research airlines, Amtrak, buses, cruise lines. For air and land transportation, seek the most direct and shortest travel times. If there is a choice of three airlines, for example, enroll your parent in the no-cost frequent fl ier program for each. This should give you access to the lowest fares and possible benefits at the airport and aboard the fl ight, as well as for requesting special services. Know that once very common, most senior discount fares are history except for Southwest Airlines and Amtrak. To find other senior-special offers, go online to 2. Request and Reserve Special Services Request seat assignment in the rows designated for disabled travelers. And, importantly, request cost-free wheelchair service at every airport origination, connection and arrival location. If there is meal service aboard,

advise the reservation system of any dietary needs. If traveling alone, ensure your parent will have human assistance from the counter, through security, to the gate and then to aboard the aircraft. If staffed by an airline employee, there is no cost for wheelchair or assistance. If staffed by Red Cap-type personnel, you or your parent will be expected to tip for that assist. If you are traveling together, you can offer to handle the wheelchair. If you don’t make and confirm all of these requests at the time of reservation, the airline, train or bus line has no obligation to make them available on check-in or while en route. 3. Prepare Documentation A government passport is accepted as the highest level of identification by federal TSA security officers. If you or your parent do not already have a passport, consider applying for such months prior to your travel. Your local post office will have the application forms; or you can go online to access the information and forms. Official photographs are available at AAA offices and at many large drug and department stores. Personal photos are not acceptable. Two copies of the photograph must be sent with your application. Request copies of prescriptions and/or statements of medical conditions from each physician and medical treatment center. Make at least four photocopy sets of the passport, driver’s license, Medicare and insurance cards, travel tickets and itinerary, boarding pass (if secured in advance online), plus any physician prescriptions and/or statements. One complete set is placed in your parent’s hand-carry bag, another in his or her roll-aboard luggage. One set is forwarded to family at the

arrival destination, and one is left at home. Provide a telephone calling card so that he or she can maintain contact. An alternative is to provide a cell phone, perhaps one with a predetermined number of minutes. Program in your telephone number as the first emergency number. 4. Be Practical When Packing Pack light. For a person traveling with at least some limitation, aim to pack everything necessary in a roll-aboard suitcase plus a medium-size over-theshoulder carry-on. Do not check the roll-aboard as luggage, as in-cabin fl ight staff will gladly stash it in the overhead rack. Such will save a lot of time at the final destination airport. All prescription and overthe-counter medications should be placed in a one quart zip-lock freezer bag, including also copies of any prescriptions and/or physician statements in the handcarry bag. Do not place the pill combinations separately into a separate plastic box as “the next combined dosage.” Such will never get through security. Enclose also any medical appliances such as extra braces or first-aid needs. If Mom or Dad is toting gifts to relatives, do not wrap them. Place the items in the roll-aboard luggage. If your parent is traveling alone, before you close up her or his carry-aboard bag, prepare and slip in at the top a note stating “I love you” and “I delight in your new adventure.” 5. Think about Safety, Security and Comfort There are thieves everywhere and, particularly, in high-traffic travel centers. Don’t give the scalawags any opportunity to steal from your parent.

the implanted steel and make sure the senior has that documentation with them. Oftentimes, personnel will ask the elder to step aside and perform a wand screening, rather than passing through the sensors. If your parent is in a wheelchair, security will use a wand while he or she is seated. Dress your parent in easilyremoved (but safe) walking shoes. Security will probably want them removed. Present, if pertinent, any physician statement regarding your Mom or Dad’s medical condition or limitation. Before traveling, explain to Mom or Dad that the security process is vital to her or his safety. 8.

a homework desk, consider keeping all homework and study tools in a bin or box that children can take out and use every day. Keep all essentials in one place to help avoid time wasted looking for the dictionary, ruler, calculator or other tool. Create a routine – each child has their own homework best time. Some work best right after they get off the bus. Most children need a break first: snack or playtime, allowing your child to select the time is critical. Hold them to it. If it isn’t working, then together, change the plan. On days when your children don’t have any homework, spend at least a little time going over

current lessons. Making a daily commitment will help reinforce lessons already learned and will also help establish a known routine wherein children expect to do some schoolwork every day. Show an interest – expand upon what your children are learning with a trip to the library, watching a television or fi lm, or by sharing personal or family experiences. A little praise goes a long way – praise for getting started, praise for staying on task, praise for neatness, praise for effort, praise for completion, and praise for packing it up. Stressing perseverance and effort in a task helps children work longer and harder, because

they recognize their success is based on how hard they work. Read together – shared reading should take place every night, either with the child reading aloud, the parent reading aloud, or taking turns. Play by number – math facts should be practiced every night, whatever the child is working on in school. That will be one of the best ways to keep your child on top of skills, as well as a daily assessment of those skills. In addition to the tips offered by Miller, parents can also help hone their children’s work habits by incorporating the following:

Map out assignments – Help children plot homework on a schedule so they have simple reminders of daily, weekly or long-term assignments. Include other engagements like sports or music lessons to help kids have a clearer picture of their own schedules. This can help build time management skills. Lessons in planning and prioritizing – teach children to make lists of what they need to do each night in order of priority. As your child accomplishes each item, have him cross it off the list. For children who had difficulty staying on task, breaking large projects into smaller, more manageable tasks can help.

are engaged in listening carefully. You probably can’t – and shouldn’t – try to record every word the teacher is saying; instead, listen for the main points and the examples. Use bullet lists to make studying easier. The margins of your notebook can be useful when you’re reviewing: you can summarize (defi nition of an amphibian), comment (controversial position), or use a star to highlight an important concept.” The key concept to developing a method of notetaking that works best for you is to practice mindful listening. Our minds are often scattered and unruly, which is why the practice

of mindfulness can be so important. You have to be present in order to listen and take in what is being said. This helps students transfer what the teacher is saying into ideas that can be put down on paper. Students who are prone to “zoning out” may want to ask permission to use a voice recorder. This way if key elements of the lesson are missed, they can be played back. This method also helps students fi ll in gaps when taking or studying notes. Once listening skills have improved, students can go onto to other note-taking pointers. Sequencing material is

important, so notes should be dated and numbered. If references are made to chapters that correlate to the textbook, jot those down so they can strengthen the notes. Students should consider writing notes on one side of the page so that they can each be laid out side-byside. Students should develop their own method of abbreviations and symbols to cut down on the amount of writing needed. Notes needn’t be in full sentences; phrases are equally effective. If a teacher writes something on a chalkboard, puts text up on a projector or

repeats something several times, it should defi nitely be written down. There is a good chance that information will be on the test. Students may want to review note-taking strategies with one another. Maybe there is a successful method employed by one student that he or she can share with classmates. Rewriting or typing notes helps ingrain the information in the brain more than simply rereading it. Note-taking is an important, life-long, valuable skill students should make the effort to learn to ensure success in school and beyond.

ally as well as for administrators. As far as helping students adapt, Olson says that it is up to teachers to set the stage for students by creating a routine and learning environment for the kids, who, she says will then step up to the challenge. “This is a five year learning project…after (the kids) have had several years under their belt and they’ve closed some of those gaps, they will come to 7th grade with the skills they need.” According to the group, students who do poorly on the tests will still be required to be enrolled in AIS (academic intervention services). However, Olson says the district uses multiple measures to assess kids, explaining that students are monitored throughout the year, with those learning

necessary skills and having the option to drop added instruction. To assist students and parents, Spitzer says the state will provide a data portal to track progress including homework requirements and performance scores. To further assist parents, the state has created “Parents Backpack Guide to Common Core Standards to provide resources to support

children’s learning (see parent-and-family-resources). In addition, for a better sense of what the common core looks like in action in classrooms, parents may view the video entitled “Teaching is the Core” at: resource/teeaching-is-thecore.

CurriCuluM ChanGes, ContinueD froM PG 1 they have no way to evaluate correlations between the way questions are worded and any difficulty children might encounter. To more fairly evaluate individual student progress, Olson said the state is using what is called “gross scores” to determine how much students have grown in their understanding of a subject matter over the year, regardless of their test score. The new curriculum, she adds, emphasizes critical thinking skills, with less emphasis on rote memorization. “Students will be required to show additional steps in problem solving skills,” she adds. “That is the level of rigor that has increased to go with college and career readiness.” It’s what she describes as academic scaffolding - students

in grades 3-8 will possess the necessary skills for entry into 9th grade, to prevent remediation in college. In terms of instruction, Spitzer says students will be spending more time on a few important subjects, whereas in the past, teachers were required to cover a myriad of subject areas in a shorter amount of time. Olson says that means the additional time is spent in a less-structured format where students work in groups, or with project based activities. For instance, in math, she states, “so instead of the teacher saying this is how you do it and practicing it five times, teachers will provide the concept and solution, and ask students to work backwards, or apply it to a real world situation.”

“It’s creating those critical thinking skills which they can transfer outside the classroom.” Josh Liddell, principal of Chautauqua Lake Secondary School says another characteristic of core standard is that it is crosscurriculum. “For example, we have an ELA teacher who has been working during the summer with a social studies teacher and a reading teacher to cover a specific book in the common core standard for that grade level. They are all working together on the same text, so the kids are going to be getting material that is truly across the curriculum, which is really a positive thing.” Liddell adds that it will be a major shift for teachers in what they do instruction-

Teacher Attends Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy Contributed Article Jamestown Public Schools

Ring Elementary School third grade teacher, Kim Austin, recently returned from the Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy in Jersey City. Ms. Austin was chosen, from a highly selective process, to attend the all-expenses paid Academy along with two hundred, third through fifth grade teachers from across the country. During the six-day Academy, teachers participated in hands-on learning activities revolving around the Common Core Math Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards. The Academy also provided speakers including Barbara Morgan (teacher-astronaut), Cathy Seeley (mathematics educator, speaker, and writer) and Dr. Calvin Mackie (award winning mentor, writer and motivational speaker). ExxonMobil engineers met with teachers to talk about their profession, education, and what encouraged them to pursue a career in the math and science field. The Academy offered the opportunity to earn three master credit hours

at no cost to participants, a yearlong membership and free access to National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), a one-year subscription to Children and Science Magazine, and free books and materials to go along with instruction.

“This was a wonderful experience, and I am so glad that I had a chance to participate,” said Ms. Austin. “Instructors engaged us in inquiry-based learning activities and modeled instructional techniques that can be easily incorporated into the classroom.

the price is Right at Gentleman Jack’s By Erica Yunghans Star Contributing Writer

For a town that once boasted a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for the number of bars it had, there aren’t very many liquor stores. Gentleman Jack’s East Main Liquors at 19 East Main Street in Fredonia is one of those stores and will be celebrating a grand opening under new ownership and management at the end of August. Co-owners Tracy and James Schulenberg decided to buy the store and the building after it had been on the market some time. “It’s been for sale and it sounded like it would be fun, interesting,” Tracy said. “The price (of the building) just kept going down, lower and lower,” James added. Gentleman Jack’s is also the neighborhood liquor store, fitting right into the character of the block of businesses on East Main. “We live right down the street,” Tracy said. “It’s real close to home and it sounded like something we would enjoy doing.” The space was previously known as Heenan’s East Main Liquors before the Schulenburgs bought the building including the storefront. The new owners replenished the store’s stock, which proved to be a worth-while effort, giving them the chance to customize what they have for

sale based on input from customers. “We do a lot of requests.” Tracy said. “If somebody can’t find something we’ll fi nd it.” she added. “That’s why we waited so long to do a grand opening because (the store) was empty and it takes a while to build up the inventory.” “Half our store is from requests,” James added. A number of the customers who have come in to the store have been from the surrounding region, the Schulenbergs said. Customers have come from Cassadaga, South Dayton, and elsewhere to fi nd what they were looking for. Gentleman Jack’s also features a wide variety of wines from most of the wineries in the region. “Nearly one whole wall of the store is from wineries around here,” James said. Gentleman Jack’s East Main Liquors store hours are 9 a.m., until 10 p.m., Monday through Saturday and noon until 6 p.m., on Sunday. Their grand opening celebration, which will feature 10 percent off a customer’s entire purchase and free wine tasting, will be Thursday, Aug. 29 through Sunday, Sept. 1.

Koch’s Brewery was a staple of the Dunkirk community for most of the 20th century. Many members of the Facebook page remember businesses like this with photos and stories.

area. Throughout the latter part of 20th century, when the majority of the group’s members were growing up, business and production was a booming part of the Dunkirk/Fredonia

economy (and still remains that way today). Although the face of the area has changed, the heart is the same. “It was a great way for people to reminisce about

the way things were when we were growing up,” said Szach, who now resides in Richmond, Virginia. After graduating from Dunkirk High School in the 1980s, Szach went to SUNY

Buffalo and left the area shortly after. “But, I still come back yearly to visit,” he said, stating that the fourth of July was the best time to return to the north county and see old friends. One of the key parts of the page that helped to influence its rapid growth was ‘Remember When…’ series that a number of members took part in. “Basically, people either found old pictures or articles and posted them, asking if anyone remembered them,” said Szach. “Or they just said, ‘hey, do you remember…’ A lot of conversations were started that really played a part in the page growing bigger.” Another key part has been, needless to say, the food posts. Frequent images of local pizzerias and the former Koch’s brewery can be found on the Facebook page, along with stories that often begin with, “remember that one time...?”. Szach, while one of the

two administrators for the page, is not one of its more frequent posters. That honor would most likely go to Tim Donnelly, a former resident who grew up in 50s and 60s Dunkirk. “I’ve been on the Facebook page for about a year or two, and I very much enjoy it,” said Donnelly. “I started collecting old photos of Dunkirk about ten years ago. So much of Dunkirk changed with Urban Renewal that when I got out of the Navy, much of the town I’d left behind was gone, so I started looking for pictures from my youth.” Donnelly noticed that he was not the only one who found enjoyment in looking at old pictures of the area and reminiscing about his childhood. “The photos I post seem to bring life to the webpage,” said Donnelly. “I add a few pictures every few days, and I see others bringing out their old pictures as

well, then discussing their memories with each other. I’ve found dozens of old friends and neighbors on there.” For the Future Going forward, Szach looks to keep things moving as they have been. “It’s been pretty great, actually,” he said. “I do monitor the page, just to make sure that nothing inappropriate or out of context is being put up, but for the most part people have been great about it. They keep it focused on being a place that people can go to and fi nd old friends, reminisce and laugh about what things were like when they were kids.” To check out the page- or join the open group- go to groups/261724590508818, or just search for ‘I grew up in Dunkirk/FredoniaNY’ on facebook.

Jammers Drop to tie atop Division By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

With an impressive record of 36-23, the Jamestown Jammers are tied for the best record in the entire New York-Penn League. Unfortunately, the other team with a claim to that distinction — the State College Spikes — also resides in the Pinckney Division. While the Jammers have been fairly consistent whether they’re at Diethrick Park or on the road, the Spikes boast a staggering 22-7 mark at home while they’re just 14-16 on the road.

The Jammers welcomed the Spikes to Jamestown with a two-game division lead on Friday, but the Spikes shut down the Green and Purple’s offense to the tune of a 2-0 win.

Byrd Signs… See B-5

Dahl Takes Kinzua Classic Title See B-2

Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd has signed his one-year, $6.9 million franchise tender Tuesday night. The signing comes after the two-time Pro Bowler missed all of the team’s offseason workouts, and nearly all of training camp.

Attention Area Coaches And Schools

Shane Carle spun seven magnificent innings for Jamestown. He allowed just four hits and a walk while striking out four. He lowered his season ERA to 2.12. Unfortunately Roberto Espinosa (1-2, 3.38) couldn’t keep the Spikes off the board and was saddled with the loss. With the division lead down to just one game, the Jammers entered Saturday’s game looking for a split of the two-game set with State College but instead found themselves on the losing end of a 5-3 score. Shortstop Adam Frazier and first baseman Edwin Espinal each recorded three hits and the Jammers combined for 10 base knocks, but it wasn’t enough to keep State College from evening up the division race. Once the Spikes left town, however, the Jammers returned to their winning ways with three straight wins. The streak started Sunday with a 7-1 win over the visiting Auburn Doubledays.

ranking the nfl’s starting Quarterbacks

By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

If you’ve read any of my columns since I took began as sports editor of the Chautauqua Star back in January, you probably know that I make an awful lot of lists and I love to rank anything and everything. Well I came up with a new idea the other day to do occasional position rankings in various sports. I plan on doing NHL goalies, MLB closers, NBA point guards, etc. But for my first one, as we are just a couple short weeks away from the start of football season, I’m going to rank the 32 NFL starting quarterbacks. It’s arguably the most important position in all of sports (with maybe only starting pitchers having an argument) and you need to have a good one if you want to win. I’ll rank them Nos. 1-32 but also break them into categories. coNtiNUED oN pG 4

For some reason people like to focus on Wilson’s shortcomings and not his rocket arm, decision making abilities and natural leadership. Griffin can be one of the game’s best, but he needs to stay healthy. Kaepernick needs to concentrate more on football and less on posing nude in magazines and trying to patent kissing his bicep.

Cutler is hanging on by a thread in Chicago. He gets yet another offensive system to use and call me skeptical, but I don’t see it working out.

Better fantasy options than real-life QBs:

Cleveland Browns 25) Jake Locker, Tennessee Titans – Here we have a nice mix of old and new. Tannehill and Locker definitely have potential and their GMs got them some weapons in the offseason so they could make a leap this year. Smith and Schaub are interchangeable to me. They won’t kill you, but if you desperately need to make a play, are they really the guy you want? Weeden is an odd case, but showed signs late last year that he has what it takes to play in the NFL for at least a few years.

the great unknown:

26) E.J. Manuel/Kevin Kolb, Buffalo Bills – Both guys have been hurt with Manuel now out the rest of the preseason. Kolb gets a bad rap, but he really hasn’t played that much in the NFL so he might have what it takes if he’s healthy and has a decent offensive line.

Not that I ranked them so low, but that you have to watch them “throw” the football this year. Flynn might be okay, but probably not. Freeman has been trash (at best) for two straight years. Ponder is horrible at everything except handing off to Adrian Peterson. Rivers is not only bad, but all of his receivers are now hurt. Butt Fumble. I’m convinced Gabbert is only the starter so that the Jaguars can get the No. 1 pick and get his replacement. What a disaster he’s been.

No. 3 might be the shortest par 3 on the course, but it’s not exactly easy. There is growth all to the right and behind the green. Naturally I got scared and ended up short left, which isn’t the worst thing in the world except I botched my chip and was still very short on my way to another bogey. No. 4 featured my best and worst shots of the day. My drive off the tee went straight up in the air, hit a tree and bounced to the right onto the fairway of No. 2. It’s already a fairly difficult par 4 and I made it much longer and harder by putting a row of trees in my line. Well I was able to save face with an absolute blast from my 3-hybrid. I got the ball up over the trees and all the way up near the green. My chip sailed past the hole a little bit, so it took me two putts to get back, so my run of bogeys continued. If I had to pick a signature hole for Vineyard Golf Course, it would be No. 5. It’s kind of a long par 3 with the green surrounded by a semi-circle of trees. Again I hit a nice shot, but used the wrong club and ended up short. A chip and two putts left me with, you guessed it, a bogey. Three consecutive par 4’s make up Nos. 6-8 with No. 7 being the most difficult hole on the course. It’s not terribly long, but there’s a pond placed right in front of the green, so your second shot needs to clear the pond, but land softly enough to stay on the green. I was very pleased with my shot off the club, but it hit the front of the green and rolled all the way off the back. I was left with a PGA-level difficulty

lie. It was on an incredibly steep slope in some serious cabbage. Do I swing hard to make sure to get my club through the long grass or am I too scared of hitting it back over the green and into the pond? I wasn’t super happy with my shot, but I got it onto the green where I two-putted for bogey. Finally I got a par on No. 8. My best tee shot of the day was followed by a dandy 8-iron that left me smack in the middle of the green. Even my usual two putts were good enough for par when I was on the green in regulation. No. 9 is the site of my firstever birdie on a par 3 so I was pretty excited to play it again, though it’s not an easy hole by any stretch of the imagination. It’s scenic as there’s a nice pond in front of the tee box, but the green is sloped like crazy. I had a nice tee shot that I thought was on the green, but it was dusk by the time we reached No. 9 so I couldn’t quite see where the ball landed. When I got there I was disappointed to see that it was just short of the green and that I had to chip. A decent chip left me with a makeable par putt… which of course I missed for yet another bogey. So I was consistent on the day, but consistently bad. Not awful, but I wasn’t real happy with my score of 43 on a course with no par 5s. That said, I’m anxious to play the course again because I know I can do much, much better. Stefan Gestwicki is the sports editor of the Chautauqua Star.

And there had been no indication the rookie first-round draft pick had been bothered by an injury following the game.

''EJ Manuel had some swelling in his left knee this morning and was examined by our medical staff,'' Marrone said. ''An MRI revealed that he will need to have a minor knee procedure and that has been scheduled. He will miss the remainder of the preseason and then be re-evaluated at that time.''

''The first guy that I heard from today before I heard anything was Rian just saying he was wishing me luck and he wanted the best for me and he was happy for me,'' Hopkins said. ''I think that's just an accurate representation of the kind of guy he is, just not bitter or anything like that but genuinely happy for a guy that he's only known a few weeks.'' Hopkins has impressed with his leg strength ever since joining the Bills, but he has battled consistency issues. In the preseason, he has connected on all four fieldgoal attempts, and has three touchbacks on seven tries. ''I've felt a lot more comfortable here recently just with the tempo and getting used to practices and games,'' Hopkins said. ''For the most part, my mechanics are good. I'm breaking down film and making sure I'm documenting why I feel like I'm feeling better and being successful. And I think that's all just part of trying to be a pro.'' NOTES: Receiver Stevie Johnson said after practice that he will return to game action this Saturday against the Washington Redskins. Johnson, battling a left hamstring injury, had extensive work on the practice field Monday. After practice, Johnson said he was anxious to test the leg against another team but cautioned that he is not yet back to 100 percent. ''I'll be out there on Saturday just to see how everything feels as far as game speed,'' Johnson said. ''It actually is not healed yet. It's a work in progress.'' ... The Bills are 2-0 this preseason and have allowed just 36 points.

Buffalo's youth movement continued on Monday when the Bills released longtime kicker Rian Lindell. Lindell, the most accurate kicker in franchise history, was let go after 10 years in Buffalo. His release means that rookie Dustin Hopkins has won the team's kicking competition. ''It's always tough when you have to release a player like Rian Lindell,'' coach Doug Marrone said. ''A true professional that's obviously been with the organization for quite some time. And I have a lot of respect for him.'' Lindell leaves Buffalo with a field goal percentage of 83.3. He connected on 225 of 270 field-goal attempts here. Lindell's status with the Bills had been in question the past two years. Buffalo has drafted kickers in each of the past two drafts, Hopkins and John Potter. Hopkins, 22, had significantly more power on his kicks throughout training camp than Lindell, 36, who relied more on his victory, going seven innings accuracy and consistency with eight strikeouts while from shorter distances. And Marrone felt that Hopkins surrendering three hits, took control of the competidefeating the third-place tion as camp progressed. Roanoke Rails, 2-1.

Byrd Signs Bills’ 1-Year Tender By John Wawrow AP Sports Writer

Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd has given himself more than enough time to be ready for the start of the regular season after signing his one-year, $6.9 million franchise tender Tuesday night. The signing comes after the two-time Pro Bowler missed all of the team's offseason workouts, and nearly all of training camp. Buffalo will hold its final practice in suburban Rochester on Wednesday afternoon before returning to its headquarters in Orchard Park, N.Y. A person familiar with Byrd's plans told The Associated Press that the player is not in the Buffalo area and intends to join the team within the next couple of days. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Bills have only announced that Byrd has signed. The person added Byrd's decision to sign the tender came without any assurances from the team that it won't apply the tag again next offseason. The Bills have the option to do that once more to prevent Byrd from testing free agency. Bills president Russ Brandon has only said the team will continue its attempt to sign Byrd to a long-term

contract once it is allowed to after the season. The two sides failed to reach an extended deal before a July 15 deadline. The timing of Byrd's signing should not come as a surprise. The move was made to give Byrd enough time to assure him of collecting his entire salary. Had he waited another week, the Bills - under NFL rules - could have been put in a position to ask the league for a one- or two-week roster exemption, during which time Byrd would not have been paid. That option is now off the table, with Byrd having two weeks to prepare for the Bills' opener against New England on Sept. 8.

Byrd, a second-round pick out of Oregon in 2009, has 18 career interceptions - tied for the NFL's thirdhighest total since 2009. Byrd is expected to be a focal point of the team's new scheme under defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. Speed and versatility have been the foundation of Buffalo's defense and the team has used a variety of pressure packages this preseason. That approach would appear to play to Byrd's strengths by creating opportunities for him in the secondary. Byrd is not expected to play in Buffalo's third preseason game Saturday against Washington and it's uncertain if he will be ready to play in the team's preseason

finale Aug. 29. Earlier on Tuesday, general manager Doug Whaley said Byrd will have some work to do to learn the new system. ''A lot of it's just installation and the mental part of it,'' Whaley said. ''It's a new system, it's an intricate system and safeties do make a lot of calls so he's missed that. ... So he's going to have some ground to make up but he's a professional. I know he'll come in here ready to work and try to contribute as much as possible.'' When Byrd returns, it's expected that he will replace third-year pro Da'Norris Searcy in the secondary. Former cornerback Aaron Williams has impressed since making the switch from corner to safety this offseason and is listed as the team's top strong safety on the depth chart. Byrd is Buffalo's top free safety. Byrd was Buffalo's most consistent defender in 2012 and was added to the Pro Bowl roster as an injury replacement. He led the Bills with five interceptions and four forced fumbles and finished fourth on the team with 76 tackles. The three players ahead of him on that list - George Wilson, Nick Barnett and Kelvin Sheppard - are no longer with the team.

earlier, it's just not worth it. It's a bad break to the leg, and he needs time to go through the process of healing, rehabilitation, all those things.'' Martin's arrival was the only transaction SHR was ready to announce on a busy day of musical seats. Kurt Busch had reportedly been offered a deal to drive a fourth car next season for Stewart-Haas Racing, and is mulling that offer and others. Stewart said last month the organization was not ready to expand to four cars in releasing Ryan Newman. ''Obviously, there's options out there,'' Zipadelli said. ''We're looking at everything that's there. There is nothing done. Right now, we're focused on (Newman), trying to win another race to make it into the Chase and getting Mark fitted up in this car and heading to Bristol to do the best job we can.'' Newman, who won at Indianapolis, is 15th in the standings and out of Chase spot with three races left until the 12-driver Chase field is set. Stewart is 18th and dropping in the standings and Danica Patrick is 27th. SHR will remain at least a three-car operation next season when it adds Kevin Harvick. Waltrip said Martin achieved all the goals both he and the team set when he began a 24-race schedule in the No. 55 in 2012. Martin nearly won at Michigan before running out of fuel with four laps left. MWR announced last

week that Vickers will drive the No. 55 Toyota for a full Sprint Cup schedule beginning next season. ''No one wants to see Tony out of the 14, but I am appreciative of the opportunity to get more seat time in the 55 as a result,'' Vickers said. Waltrip said MWR would now turn its attention toward signing No. 55 crew chief Rodney Childers and keep him with Vickers for next season. ''Brian is poised to race for a championship,'' Waltrip said. ''The job he's done in the 55 on a limited basis has been really impressive. To be able to be a part timer and grab a win like he did at Loudon, that's just amazing in this day and age.'' It took some cooperation to get this deal done. Martin needed MWR and sponsors Aaron's and Toyota to let him out of his deal to jump to SHR and drive a Chevrolet. Martin could now help send the No. 14 into the owner's standings portion of the Chase and knock out an MWR team. Martin, who has five runner-up series finishes and no championships in a three decade Cup career, said he has yet to consider his plans for 2014. ''A week ago, I was going to race a partial schedule,'' he said. ''Now, I'm racing all but one with a whole new situation with what I feel like is a lot of challenges and a lot of pressure. ''And I don't want to think about 2014 at all right now.''

He’s having a flat-out historic season. 4) Texas Rangers 73-53 They’ve made up a ton of ground and now lead the A.L. West by a game-and-a-half. 5) Tampa Bay Rays 72-52 That was a rocky few weeks in early August, but the Rays are back among the elite. 6) Boston Red Sox 74-54 Far from a flawless team, but the Sox look close to a lock for a playoff spot come Oct. 7) Pittsburgh Pirates 74-51 So far so good on their West Coast trip. Eight wins away from breaking ‘The Streak.’ 8) St. Louis Cardinals 72-53 Who would have guessed that the Cards would lean heavily on Joe Kelly’s right arm? 9) Cincinnati Reds 71-55 Six of their last nine games of the season are against Pittsburgh. Must-see TV for sure. 10) Oakland Athletics 71-54 This just in: Aussie Grant Balfour is a really good closer (31 saves, 1.84 ERA, 1.06 WHIP) 11) Cleveland Indians 68-58 Upcoming series’ at Atlanta, at Detroit and vs. Baltimore could bury the Tribe…or not. 12) Kansas City Royals 64-60 A threegame slide has seen them lose some ground, but their pitching is thriving. 13) Arizona Diamondbacks 65-59 The way Patrick Corbin shut down a potent Reds lineup once again proved he’s legit. 14) New York Yankees 66-59 How big of a story would it be if A-Rod helped the Yankees make the playoffs? 15) Baltimore Orioles 67-58 Chris Davis continues his onslaught, but the O’s are losing ground in the A.L. East race. 16) Washington Nationals 61-64 Can anyone explain why the Nats traded for David DeJesus and then put him on waivers? 17) Colorado Rockies 59-68 Pirates fans everywhere are still baffled about how this team swept the playoff-bound Bucs. 18) New York Mets 58-66 With a couple key moves, this team would not be far from contention. Playoffs in 2014? 19) Seattle Mariners 58-67 At least Seattle fans will have the Seahawks to cheer for in a few short weeks. 20) Toronto Blue Jays 57-69 Is it good when your team’s ERA leader (Mark Buehrle) is sitting at 4.23? 21) Philadelphia Phillies 55-70 At least Philly fans will have the Eagles to cheer for in a few short weeks. 22) San Francisco Giants 56-69 At least San Fran fans will have the 49ers to cheer for in a few short weeks. 23) San Diego Padres 56-70 At least Friar fans will have the Chargers, though that might be even more torture. 24) Milwaukee Brewers 55-71 Jean Segura is hitting just .260 with no home runs and just two RBI in 73 August ABs. 25) Chicago Cubs 54-71 Starlin Castro is hitting just .188 with 1 RBI and 1 run scored in 64 August ABs. 26) Minnesota Twins 55-69 Justin Morneau could be traded by the time this is published. He’s been red hot for weeks. 27) Los Angeles Angels 55-70 Mike Trout can’t be MVP. Without him the Angels would be…4th in the A.L. West. 28) Chicago White Sox 50-74 A fourgame winning streak has pushed the winning % over .400. It’s the little things. 29) Miami Marlins 48-76 That line drive home run that Giancarlo Stanton hit to dead center was just insane. 30) Houston Astros 41-84 They officially are WORSE than losing two out of every three games. -187 run differential.
