thriVing industry helped farmers and trade, led tO grOwth Of Villages and tOwns By Patricia Pihl Managing Editor

Fires illuminated the skies in Chautauqua County in the early 1800s, burning constantly for nearly a quarter of a century. Eyewitnesses on the hilltops along the ridge between Lake Erie and the Pennsylvania line report seeing “great volumes of smoke constantly ascending to the clouds.” Also described were “pungent and pleasant odors of burning young leaves, fragrant herbs of the woods and newly cut timber wafting on every breeze.” This happened in all seasons except winter.* Normally, the smell of fire is associated with loss or tragedy and certainly not progress. However,

early settlers in the county found what would be called today “slash and burn” a necessity for survival, taming the vast forested area by cutting down acres of trees to grow crops. Another benefit -the felled trees would then be burned for ashes, which served as a cash crop to help these early homesteaders pay their taxes. Today, talk of a business for ashes might be difficult to understand. However, for many years, ashes were the most important article of trade and readily turned into cash. At the time, lumber was very cheap and freight expensive. A perfect solution for hardwood too heavy to float down the river was found by burning the logs, which would yield valuable chemicals.

INSIDE THIS WEEK Spreading Out Local church plants two more churches in region. See A-6

In what would be considered a conservation and environmental nightmare today, settlers - often with the help of neighbors - would clear three to ten acres, representing a year’s work. According to the book, “Chautauqua County, A History,” by Helen G. McMahon, after the lumber was cut into smaller pieces, teams of horses or oxen would then be used to haul the logs into piles for burning. In fact, Ashville, the first village to be formed in the Town of Harmony, derives its name from having been the largest center in continueD on Pg 13 Black Salts, a major cash crop for early settlers, were poured into hewn out logs, (shown above) and drawn by ox teams to asheries where they were oven baked with intense heat and then cooled. The resulting gray colored “pearl ash” was barreled and shipped to New York and other cities. (Chautauqua County Historical Society).

Chautauqua County Humane Society Pet of the Week

Pets of the Week

This week we are featuring “Daisy” and “Mitsy”. Daisy is a sweet 3 year old beagle. Her owner no longer had enough time for her so she is looking for a new family to be her forever home. She is housebroken, likes kids and does fine with other dogs. Mitsy is a 2 1/2 year old long-haired, full figured girl. She is really lovable, likes to get as much attention as she can and would do well in almost any home. She will need frequent brushing to keep her coat beautiful and free of mats. If you think that you could provide a loving home for either of these pets, please stop in at the Strunk Road Adoption Center to meet them or any of their friends awaiting adoption. You are their 2nd chance at a great life.

CHAUTAUQUA STAR FRIDAY, AUGUST 30, 2013

Contributed Article Alzheimer’s Association

For most of the hundreds of Southern Tier residents who Walk to End Alzheimer’s at the Chautauqua Institution every fall, the reason they walk is personal—they have been affected in some way by Alzheimer’s disease. Across Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties, it’s estimated there are more than 7,500 people who have the disease, with another 22,000 providing some kind of care for them. Among those caregivers is the family of the late Nancy (Littlejohns) George of Olean, who had the disease. Nanette Higgins, one of Nancy’s four daughters, says her mother “would be delighted to see so many people walking to end this disease because it is so isolating…it’s good to see people come together and support each other.” The walk, sponsored each year by the Alzheimer’s Association Western New York chapter, helps sustain the chapter’s outreach, including care consultations and education, as well as funding research aimed at ending this disease. Once again, the Chautauqua Institution will host the walk on Sept. 7. Nancy’s family has been walking for about 10 years as a team called “Nancy’s Girls”. “That’s what she called us…her girls” said granddaughter Elizabeth Galeazzo of Nancy’s four daughters and seven granddaughters. Nancy was also a bit of a prankster, according to her family. “She liked nothing better than to hide and jump out and scare us, especially after we watched

a scary movie!” remembers daughter Ann McIntyre. That slowly changed as the disease progressed, said Nanette. “It was so hard to watch our mother become a stranger to us.” Nancy had Alzheimer’s many years, with the disease progressing as other illnesses impacted her health. “She lost a part of herself with every illness,” said Nanette. These three women are joined on the Walk each year by another dozen family members. “We hope the walks accomplish more awareness for this disease that can affect anybody. And we hope to raise money for continued research for someday finding a cure. Also, we act as a huge support group for each other because we share this common bond,” said Elizabeth. The annual event is open to everyone, and includes a touching Promise Garden ceremony. Every registered walker receives a vinyl flower pinwheel that can be personalized with a message or name. The flowers come in four colors, with each

color representing a reason to Walk, such as having lost someone to Alzheimer’s or providing some kind of support. The flowers are “planted” before the walk, and then retrieved as a takehome/remembrance of their loved one and the event. Registration can be completed quickly online by visiting the Alzheimer’s Association Western New York Chapter website at alz.org/ wny. Walk day activities begin at 9 a.m. at the Turner Community Center on the grounds of the Institution. More information is also available by calling 1-800272-3900. The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is made possible through the generous support of these fine local companies: ElderWood Senior Care, West Herr, Columbus McKinnon, and Tim Hortons, with media support provided by The Jamestown Gazette, Media One Group and WKBW-TV. Fredonia Place Sends Team Fredonia Place, an assisted

living community with a memory care community in Fredonia also has a team participating at Chautauqua Institution Alzheimer’s Memory Walk. Employees and their family members are raising funds by accepting $10 donations for the walk. “We are hoping to raise money, and just as important raise awareness of how Alzheimer’s effects individuals and family,” said Jonelle Anderson, Fredonia Place case manager and team captain. “Not only do we have family members we are concerned about, but our residents are like family.” Fredonia Place is the only facility in Northern Chautauqua County to host an Alzheimer’s support group, which meets the fourth Thursday of every month from 4:30- 6 p.m. at Fredonia Place, located at 50 Howard St. Both caregivers and family members are welcome. For more information, interested persons may contact The Western New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association at 1-800-272-3900.

HEALTH SECTION ymcA focus on Health

By Meg Pickard Star Contributing Writer

Chautauqua County EMS receives an average of 20 calls per day requesting assistance for a fall victim. We have the highest number of fall-related emergency department visits per year in Western and Central New York State with hospitalization costs

upwards of $5.4 million. Our fall-related death rate is the highest in the nation. Things don’t have to be this way. Falls are preventable. They don’t have to be a part of our aging process and rob us of our independence. The YMCA has partnered with the Centers of Disease Control to help disseminate a program entitled Moving

for Better Balance. It is an evidence-based fall prevention program for older adults. It consists of gentle exercises and strategies to avoid falls. The exercises include a core 8-form Tai Chi routine and a subroutine of eight integrated therapeutic movements. Practice focuses on stimulating musculoskeletal and sensory

systems via self-initiated movements such as body weight shifting, unilateral weight-bearing, trunk rotation, ankle sways and coordinated eye-head-hand movements. Research participants who engaged in these exercises at least three times a week saw an average of 55% improvement in their balance within a 26-week period of time.

The research for this program continues with respect to Parkinson patients. As was reported in the February 2012 New England Journal of Medicine, “Moving for Better Balance training appears to reduce balance impairments in patients with mild-to-moderate Parkinson’s disease, with additional benefits that improved functional

capacity and reduced falls.” The next 12-week session of Moving for Better Balance begins Sept. 10. Classes will be held at the Lakewood Y on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 to 9 a.m. and at the Jamestown Y on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 to 10:45 a.m. Advance registration is required. For more information, call 664-2802.

WOMEN’S SECTION once in A Blue moon

By Dodi Kingsfield Star Contributing Writer

Last week, the northern hemisphere experienced what some folks call a “blue moon.” To some, it may have seemed like just another full moon, although an incredibly bright one. For others, the blue moon this month was a celestial event worth acknowledging since the rare occurrence of a blue moon only happens every three years or so. This blue moon was of the seasonal type, which means it was an extra moon in the season. A season normally has three moons, but when there are four moons in a season, the third moon of the season is designated as the blue moon. A calendar blue moon on the other hand is the second full moon of a calendar month, which last occurred in September 2012. Whether a blue moon happens seasonally or is the second moon

of the month, this event takes place every few years, making it a “once in a blue moon” or “blue moon special” worthy of recognition. Every month, the moon orbits around the earth, taking approximately 29.5 days to complete the cycle. The phases of the moon are used to describe where the moon is in the sky as it travels around the earth. The part of the moon that is visible to the eye is also the part of the moon being lit by the sun, which makes the moon so bright in the night sky. A new moon is the moon phase where no part of the moon is visible because the sun and the moon are both located on the same side of the earth. As the new moon becomes full, it is referred to as the waxing moon and passes through the first quarter crescent moon at 90 degrees in the sky. At 180 degrees, directly above, the moon is on one side of the earth and the sun on the other, illuminating the entire hemisphere of the moon creating the full moon. As the moon continues to travel around the earth, the visible portion wanes and becomes the last crescent moon of the month at 270 degrees in the sky before returning to its new moon phase of the lunar month.

Since lunar months are shorter than calendar months, occasionally the moon and calendar do not coincide and there is a thirteenth month that occurs in the calendar year. This extra moon often takes place in spring, earning it the nickname “belewe” which meant “to betray”. This spring moon was known as the betrayer, or “belewe” moon of the Lenten season, causing practitioners to fast for an extra month during the pre-Easter springtime. Blue moons that occur during the late summer and fall months, such as the one last week, are sometimes referred to as a harvest moon or hunters moon, which feeds the folk tales of abundant harvests or hunts that take place during this special full moon. Coincidentally, the moon is not the only piece of our natural world that cycles every 28 days. As women, our own natural cycle follows the same phase of the moon. They may not always coincide with the new or full moon phase, but the moon acts as a gentle daily reminder that we are part of the natural earthly rhythms as we experience our monthly cycles or our own maturity from new moon child to full moon grandmother.

The moon acts as a daily reminder that as women, we are all part of the same seasonal cycles, waxing and waning, maturing and rebirthing, planting and harvesting.

The phases of the moon can be used to honor certain aspects of a woman’s life and assist her with the challenges of life’s transitions. For example, one young woman honors each phase of the moon, starting new projects during the new moon, being social during the full and de-cluttering her life during the waning. “The moon and sun and seasons influence pretty much my every day.” Another woman honors “the moon on the first night of my cycle” as she practices her new knowledge of moon cycles and

its affect on her life. Some women use moon cycles as their creative time to write or do arts and crafts, others keep moon diaries or journals to collect their meditative thoughts and some may simply choose to watch the moon traverse across the night sky, taking solace in knowing that like the sun, the moon will always shine. The next blue moon is not scheduled to happen until July 2015 for a calendar blue moon or May 2016 for a seasonal blue moon, but there is a full moon every month to draw us in and

remind us of our relationship to the natural world around us. The next full moon falls on September 19, which is also the autumnal equinox, the first day of the fall season which is a time for harvesting and gathering our hard summer’s work and preparing for the reflective winter months. Take the time on this next full moon to look up and take in the magic of the night sky. While the moon may not be blue or even visible due to cloud cover, it will still be there, you can count on it.

Jamestown Homes receive a Helping Hand from group work camps

Contributed Article Chautauqua Opportunities

Many hands make light work. Driving through as the streets of Jamestown last month you may have noticed homes surrounded tal, by groups of teens and on, adults, working vigorously t, on various home improvement projects. Over 350 r volunteers from near and e far arrived at Jamestown’s Washington Middle School on Sunday, July 21 to begin ork a week long Work Camp. During this week, 50 homes in the city underwent significant changes that not only assisted the homeowners but also helped to change the face of those neighborhoods. Chautauqua Opportunities, Inc. in partnership with the Jamestown Renaissance Corporation, and with Community Development Block Grant funding from the City of Jamestown, sponsored this camp to assist low income and elderly homeowners make necessary repairs and renovations to their homes. The Jamestown Renaissance Corporation and Chautauqua Opportunities worked together to target specific neighborhoods within Jamestown, focusing on transitional neighborhoods and areas of the City where other investment is occurring, such as the neighborhood challenges sponsored by the Renaissance Corporation. Once participants were identified, Chautauqua Opportunities staff worked with homeowners to determine their renovation needs and repairs that could be completed by an all-volunteer staff. Many of the homes received exterior painting, new stairs on front or back porches, minor weatherization repairs and interior painting.

Volunteers were organized through Group Mission Trips, a Christian organization that has served hundreds of thousands of people in need through more than 6 million volunteer hours. Youth groups from around the country came to Jamestown to help those in need and to learn home repair, team building and other important life skills. Many of the youth have participated in “Groupâ€? for numerous years stating that it’s the week they look forward to most in the summer. One of the Group Site Coordinators Annie explained, “This was one of the most disjointed groups of kids I had seen on Sunday, and by Wednesday it was a complete transformation. The determination to finish what they’d started and the realization that working together is the best way to accomplish that‌ has been nothing short of amazing to watch.â€? Group Work Camps aren’t just a learning experience for the youth participants, though. Many homeowners joined in on the work being done at their homes. Homeowner, Kathy R., was a constant presence throughout the week, directing the group of youth that assembled at her home to complete exterior weatherization and interior painting projects. Kathy is a proud homeowner that used to complete many home repairs on her own and has recently been unable to continue this upkeep due to health issues that she has faced.

Rev. Mike and Courtney Anderson, who currently pastor the South Dayton church, will head up the Olean work. Services will be held weekly on Saturdays at 6 p.m. starting Sept. 7. They’ll begin in the Hampton Inn located on Main St. in Olean- a fairly traditional way to start a Family Church. The Family Church Jamestown began in Jamestown’s Holiday Inn, and Starbrick Family Church in Warren’s Holiday Inn. “Our motto for Family Church of Cattaraugus County [South Dayton and

Olean] has been ‘where the promises of God become a reality’� said Rev. Anderson, who, with his wife, has led South Dayton since its inception in 2010. “There is so much in the Bible that God wants for people to have, and it’s our desire to show that to them.� Heading up the North East work will be the Rev. Tim and Penny Pilarski. Currently, Rev. Pilarski serves at the Fredonia church, and will be leaving to launch North East Family Church on Sunday, Sept. 8 at 10 a.m. The church is located at 16 N. Lake St. in

the historic Pennsylvania village. “We are excited about becoming part of the North East community,� said Rev. Pilarski. “North East is a great area, so full of life. Everyone we’ve met has been very friendly.� The Pilarskis are currently attending ministry training school, and have served faithfully in the ministry of helps in Fredonia for nearly two decades. Having just retired from a lifelong career in New York State Corrections, Rev. Pilarski is excited to step into the next phase of his life.

Looking forward, Rev. Lokietek intends to keep going with the trend of church planting. “We’ve started a ministry training center in Jamestown, and we’re constantly preparing ministers to be sent out to start churches,� he said. “God has divinely orchestrated every church we’ve planted, and we’re excited for what He has for the Family Churches going forward.� For more information on the Family Churches, visit fcintl.org.

The Solution to Hard Times Part 3 This natural world is experiencing some difficult trials in these days. Gas prices are on the rise and the world economy is struggling. Major world confl ict is threatening in the Middle East. Diseases are destroying entire continents. There would be plenty to be discouraged about if we didn’t have the solutions to these problems already. Remember back to your school days. Think of how many tests and quizzes you were required to pass. Think of how much stress they caused you as a young person as you studied. But what if you would have had the answers to those tests beforehand? Do you think that would have reduced your anxiety level? Of course it

would. Now think about all the struggles that come against us in this life. Wouldn’t it help if you had the answers and outcomes beforehand? That’s exactly what the Word of God is to us. God knew that the world and demonic forces would test us in life. So what did God do? He gave us all the answers ahead of time! 2 Corinthians 4:18 says, “While we do not look at the things which are seen but at the things which are not seen: for the things that are seen are temporary but the things that are not seen are eternal.� This verse is trying to teach us that we do not have to live under the authority of the seen world. We can and should be living under the authority of the unseen realm where God lives. The unseen realm rules over the

seen world! Remember: We are not to be enslaved to this seen world. That means we do not have to be subject to worry and fear concerning gas prices, wars, disasters, diseases, and the economy. God said He would meet all my needs! (Phil 4:19) He said He would protect me from diseases and evil happenings! (Psalm 91:9-12) That’s what God said He would do for me when I dwell with Him. Now I have the responsibility to be saying the same things as God! This world should not scare us; we already have the answers! Jesus said in Mark 11:22-23, “Have the God kind of faith. For truly I say to you that whosoever shall say to this mountain be removed and be cast into the

sea and shall NOT DOUBT IN HIS HEART BUT SHALL BELIEVE that those things which He says shall come to pass; HE SHALL HAVE WHATEVER HE SAYS.� Jesus is teaching us that our faith based on the Word of God which is spoken out of our mouths has the power to change the natural world. Your faith can cause this natural realm to yield and give way to the promises of God! Notice that faith MUST BE SPOKEN. By declaring God’s Word in the face of circumstances, I am choosing not to participate in this world’s dilemmas. No sense in being broke, sick, and depressed. After all, as one minister said, I have a quarter in my pocket plus all the promises of God.

The seminar will also be helpful for caregivers who are responsible for making Medicare decisions and who need guidance. “Insurance can be intimidating and scary,� Mrs. Sluga added. “There are so many options to choose from that if people don’t know the best choice for their situation, it can have a huge financial impact.� Edgewood Communities is part of Lutheran Senior

Presque Isle for a day, weekend or vacation Presque Isle State Park

By Scott Wise Star News Writer

Some time ago, one of my closest friends took his girlfriend to Presque Isle, Pennsylvania. They often spent their Sunday afternoons on the beach there, but I couldn’t figure out why he was so particularly excited about it. It wasn’t but an hour after they’d left that I received the picture on my iPhoneshe had a ring on her finger. Of course, we were all thrilled for them. But I couldn’t figure out why, when we have so many beaches in this area, he chose to head an hour away to pop the question. This question boggled my mind for around 18 months. Then my wife and I decided to do something special to celebrate our first night out since our second child was born. We sent the kids to Grandma’s and Grandpa’s house, and took off for Erie. What we experienced when we got there was incredible. Maybe you’ve been to Presque Isle, but I hadn’t before this. Sure, I’ve taken more trips to Waldameer Park than I can remember, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Continue heading down the road, down and around the corner, and it’s like stepping into a completely different world. Here we go from the busyness and five lane traffic that is Erie, and pass through a portal into the peace and serenity of a

Grandpa and Joshua, our son, play on the beach at Presque Isle

state park. What you should understand about me is that I’ve had more than my fair share of experiences at state parks. I practically grew up in an RV, with most of our summer weekends spent at various campgrounds around this area and beyond. But there was something about the way that Presque Isle presented itself that made it different. It was reminiscent to me of stepping into a vacation world, almost like the Florida Keys. A long stretch of dry land centered between a picturesque harbor and the open waters of Lake Erie. We continued down the main park road for about fifteen minutes or so, taking in the grandeur of the park. Eventually, we wanted to find a place to get out and experience one of these

beaches that we’d heard so much about. Once we figured out how to cross over to the other side of the peninsula, we stepped onto beach seven. I should pause here and say that this entire trip was a bit of a challenge for me. Usually, I’m a guy who likes to be in control of the situation. If I’m going somewhere I don’t know, I study maps for hours to make sure I know the roads around the area, the townships and the stops we’re going to make. But, in my assumption that Presque Isle State Park was a small beach area, I didn’t prepare. It was exhilarating, though. I had no idea what beach we should visit. Hadn’t read reviews, hadn’t asked anyone. We were able to form a completely independent opinion of the area, and I value that.

As we parked the car and got out, I wasn’t too blown away. There weren’t a lot of people there, and the buildings were all closed up, which seemed odd for a Friday evening in July. But we took off our shoes and walked over a sandy dune to a view that took my breath away. I have lived within 15 minutes of Lake Erie my entire life, and I’ve never seen it like this. The waves crashing over the perfectly placed break-walls brought to life my once calm and serene lake with a power similar to the Pacific Ocean. The perfect sand of the beach was like that of the St. Martin beaches I’d visited in my teens, and the vastness of it all was mind boggling. We decided to walk west on the beach, heading further out toward the

Presque Isle is great for a romantic night on the beach, or a place to take the kids for a fun adventure.

end of the peninsula, and found ourselves flirting and pushing each other into the sand and breaking waves. I intended to stay dry, but it didn’t last long. Holding the hand of my beloved, we just walked and talked for what felt like forever, a peaceful conversation with no toddler or newborn begging for attention in the background. After we heard some thunder and saw a storm rolling toward us over the horizon, we decided to head back to the car. We drove slowly back toward the park entrance and it wasn’t five minutes later we planned our next visit. My parents were celebrating 39 years of marriage the following day, so we’d take them

and our boys out to dinner at the classic style burger and ice cream joint named Sara’s, perfectly located next to the park. I’ve studied some of the history of Presque Isle since then, and the role it played in the development of the city of Erie. It’s amazing how perfectly it was created, harvesting a natural harbor for a city to grow and flourish on trade and business. After our weekend, I can confidently say that- to anyone looking to wander- head to Presque Isle State Park. Whether you stay for an hour, a day or camp at the campground, I guarantee you’ll leave rested, refreshed and in awe of its splendor.

Playing the Ponies with Friends at Presque Isle Downs By Jen Pulver Star Contributing Writer

When we set a date with several couples to head down to Presque Isle Downs to attend a horse race I must admit my biggest concern was if I should wear a hat! I didn’t think much about the races, the horses, the jockeys or that I had no knowledge on how to “play the ponies.” What I discovered at Presque Isle Downs, aside from the fact that female attendees generally are NOT wearing large, flamboyant hats is that an evening out at the horse races with friends can be more entertainment than gambling. What was interesting I loved visiting the Paddock to view the horses prior to the races. Of course, as a girl, I was infatuated with horses. The size and beauty of these animals was never lost on me and throughout my life I’ve loved living in our rural area and the opportunity it brings to drive along any back road and see horses in pastures. At the races, the Paddock is where the horses are kept prior to the race and the attendees of the race are invited to visit the area to scope out the “best” horses for their bets. Let me tell you, the horses

are beautiful! As we were able to get fairly close to them they all seemed to be very well kept, and to my unofficial eye, genetically at the top of the species in strength and form. Of course since horse racing is in fact a business it makes sense that the horses are well kept by their owners. For a an expert in the sport, I’m sure this is a time to look at the bone structure, health, and lineage of any given horse but for a novice like myself it was a time to familiarize myself with the horses names and marvel at the amazing stature of the horses. Most of our group of friends were new to horse racing so we admired each horse and began making assumptions on the horses and respective jockey using amusing and absurd assumptions. Random acts by the horses like tail swishing, ear twitching and hoof lifting became “obvious” signs that a particular horse was indeed ready to claim the winning circle that evening. In a side note interesting to gender psychology, most of the men in our group took to looking through paperwork that was provided about “winning” odds, where as the women in our group seemed to gravitate toward non-verbal clues provided by the horses.

In my opinion, neither method seems to bear more relevance than the other when trying to choose the winners. We laughed and teased one another about the choices we were all making and the beginning whiffs of competition were forming among us. Placing our bets I discovered that placing bets in horse racing can be simple or complicated. There are straight bets and exotic bets. Straight bets are the least complicated. They are: Win - You win if your horse finishes 1st. Place - You win if your horse finishes 1st or 2nd. Show - You win if your horse finishes 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. There are also opportunities to place exotic bets which involve specific horses finishing in specific rankings. As imagined these types of bets are much harder to predict-they also tend to pay out greater sums (if you can wager on them correctly.) Basically, our group stuck with straight bets that didn’t cost us much. We sat some races out and participated in others. On my first bet I was a bit nervous approaching the teller to place my bet simply because I had been told to be speedy so as to not hold up the line. Horse race betting in

NOT like buying lipstick at the cosmetics counter— lingering is not encouraged. Some of our group members, having success early on, placed a few exotic bets. We played the following: EXACTA- You’re betting on two horses to come in first and second in an exact order, QUINELLAWith a quinella bet, you’re betting on two horses to come in first and second in any order. As long as your two horses finish in the top two spots, you win. TRIFECTA- You bet that three horses will finish in first, second, and third in an exact order. Of these exotic bets only one quinella paid off and there was a fair amount of gloating to accompany that win. During the Races Now here’s the exciting part of each race…we took our seats and when the race started it was hard not to get

over involved with cheering on “your” horse. Although the races were each fairly quick-each was filled with excitement and entertainment. It was that Superbowl feeling of rooting for a specific winner. Whooping and hollering, the joy of winning and the “failure” of defeat was contagious among our group and those around us. Many times we were up on our feet cheering, if not for our own horse but for another group members horse when our own bet clearly wasn’t going to come in. There were a few instances of a horse we bet on coming from behind which was fun. Between races we chatted about the races but also the things that friends chat about during a get together. Attending the races felt like entertainment, an experience, an outing. It was wonderful to be outside, enjoying the weather while

having the race to focus on periodically. Unlike other sports where the action is fairly consistent and you are paying attention to the game, the horse races had a great pace for a wonderful evening with friends full of conversation, camaraderie and a bit of competition. I liked that there was a lot of history and tradition behind it. Though hardly the Kentucky Derby I was able to see why so many people love that event and all an evening of “playing the ponies” can offer. Truly it was entertaining and for the most part fairly cheap when you consider the cost of most professional sporting events. All in all, we won some money and lost some money. We still had a great time and Presque Isle Downs provided us with a great evening.

Arkwright veternary clinic

On site (Or On farm) Veterinary care fOr all Of chautauqua cOunty

Arkwright veterinary services, located at 2879 Ball Rd. in Cassadaga, is officially open for business.

By Scott Wise Star News Writer

Every time a new business starts in Chautauqua County, we consider it cause for celebration. Hardworking men and women who are doing their part to boost our economy; all the while helping to make the American Dream come to fruition in their lives. Recently, in Arkwright, one such person has realized her dream of owning her own veterinary practice. Katie Ball, DVM, held the grand opening for Arkwright Veterinary Services (AVS) in July of this year, and is a shining example of the benefits of stick-toitiveness. “Ever since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to work with animals,” said Ball. “I’ve always known that, someday, I’d be the one who came to farms and houses to take care of the horses and sheep and all the farm animals. It’s really exciting for me.” Ball, who’s practice is located on a picturesque country road in the hills of northeastern Chautauqua County, has worked with large animals (horses, cows, sheep, etc.) for years. Additionally, she’s had more than her fair share of experience with small animals, having worked at the Fredonia Animal Hospital from 2006 until December of last year. “I could see that it was getting to be too much for me to do the large animal

practice on the side, and still work during the week,” said Ball. “I began laying the ground work; talking to a contractor, working with licensing to get this place rolling. After a little while, here we are.” Ball used to work with a business in the south county area to handle equine, or horse, care. When the recession hit, she made the move to start handling those calls on her own. Since then, her reputation with the horse-loving folk of our area has become one of trust and reliability, especially since horses hold a particularly special place in her heart. “I was that little girl who always wanted a horse,” said Ball, with a smile beaming from ear to ear. “It took my dad until I was 19 to do it, but he got me two horses that year. I still have them now. I love working with horses.” Ball’s practice focuses around general medicine for animals of all sizes. Vaccinations, spaying and neutering and most sicknesses can be taken care of in house. “I’ll refer folks to a specialist if I can’t do it, but we’ve got everything here that we need to do what we need to do,” said Ball. With new cabinets, new kennels, new anesthetic and sterilization machines, AVM still carries that ‘new car’ smell when you walk in. She takes any animal by appointment, and can usually work with emergency situations; especially since her practice is located on

her property. Primarily, though, her passion is for farm animals. “Anything from the family sheep to the 25 barn cats, we’ll take care of it,” said Ball. “I know that a lot of farmers have a lot of animals, and costs can get incredibly high to take care of them all.” Since the practice is based out of a completely renovated attachment to the family barn, overhead is minimal. This allows Ball to keep her costs to clients down. Ball was born and raised in Arkright, and she now lives in the home she grew up in, on property that’s been in the family for generations. The practice, located at 2879 Ball Road in Cassadaga, is even located on a country road named after her grandparents. She attained her undergraduate degree from SUNY Fredonia before heading to St. Kitts to finish her degree program. “It was great for the first few months, but it eventually stopped feeling like vacation,” Ball said of island life. “We’d look for any excuse to get off the island.” After graduating from veterinary school, the next step for a future doctor is to get clinical experience at an actual veterinary practice. Ball landed herself in Wisconsin. In January. “It was quite a change from two and a half years in St. Kitts,” said Ball. She emphasized, with more detail than this article will give, just how many layers one can wear and still handle

caring for a pregnant cow. Moving back to the area in 2006, Ball built, and continues to build, relationships with large and small animal owners in Chautauqua County. Looking to the future, Ball has plans to continue growing her business and focusing on specializing in ‘on-theroad’ care.

“We’ll go pretty much anywhere in a 45 minute, hour radius,” said Ball. “Most of my materials are mobile, and I can diagnose and do some care in the field,” Eventually, Ball sees her business growing to support a full equine care facility, able to handle most horse injuries or illnesses, and an arena for rehab and diagnostics.

Lost Places, continued from pg 1 the county for the conversion of green timber at “asheries.” The first ash factory, built in 1822, was among four that existed in the village to convert hardwood into lye (for soap), as well as potash, or pearl ash. Asheries were common in newly settled areas of North America during the late 18th century and much of the 19th century, converting hardwood ashes for its abundant levels of potassium carbonate and potassium hydroxide. Bear Hunting and Wrestling Matches Historians report that neighbors would come from near and far for the massive fires, which burned for days. Many yokes of oxen were used to skid the logs into heaps for the bonfires, and the event would turn into a massive celebration including drinking, feasting and feats of strength. In the book, “History of the Town of North Harmony,” author Floyd Darrow states, “With

much hard cider during the day, at dusk these workmen gathered for the evening meal, consisting of enormous Johnny-cakes baked on boards, between the upper and lower layers of which, when split, were inserted huge slices of roast venison or bear’s meat.” When the meal was over, it was written that “these frontiersmen gathered about the open camp fires, indulging in stories of wolf and bear hunting, often engaging in wrestling matches and sometimes fights.” “Soft Soap” Harmony historian Pam Brown says after the ashes were collected, farmers would pour water on them to “leach” out lye, which was then used to make a very harsh or caustic-type soap, commonly used in households for many years. Darrow remembers making “soft soap,” as it was called by boiling fat scraps accumulated in the house-

hold with lye obtained from the wood ashes. From lye, potash was also made, which was used in the manufacture of glass. The product was shipped far and wide as McMahon’s book notes, “potash was taken from the kettles and broken up and packed into barrels for shipment on keelboats down the Allegheny to glass factories at Pittsburgh.” Even more valuable than potash, was pearl ash. McMahon says special ovens at the asheries were required to make it, which used black salts made from potash, which turned gray when baked. Similar to baking power, the substance would be used in cakes, corn break, pancakes and biscuits. McMahon states in her book, “Pearl ashes from Chautauqua County were shipped to England by way of Montreal until the opening of the Erie Canal and

to New York by wagon.” In “The History of Chautauqua County,” Andrew Young states that Walter Smith of Fredonia was the most extensively engaged merchant in the county in the sales of pot and pearl ash with sales over a six-year period in the early 1800s ranging from $20,000 to $45,000. Ash, like other products, was affected by supply and demand, and despite these figures, producers were not always adequately compensated and “subjected to heavy loses.” In time, the county’s massive timber reserves would be gone, and with that the ashery business in Chautauqua County, once said to have manufactured more ashes than any other county along the shores of Lake Erie, died. Although no historical reminders of the ash industry remain, its impact on life in the county is undeni-

Settlers made lye, a strong alkali, for household soaps through a process called “leaching” which used ashes and water to extract the chemical.

Dunkirk Historic House Tour 2013 Slated For September 7

Contributed Article Michele Bautista

The public is invited to tour five interesting Victorian homes that were part of a bygone era in the center of Dunkirk by attending the Dunkirk Historic House tour on Sat. Sept. 7

was the home of Robert J Gross, President of Brooks Locomotive as well as Harrell/US Radiator Corp. The yellow brick Georgian Revival dates back to 1907. It then became the Rectory for Cardinal Mindszenty High School in 1952 until it’s closing in 1979. It served briefly as the Christopher Wellness Center and is presently the offices for the STEL Agency. The Eggers art exhibit is located here as well as mums being available for purchase. The Rudge and Beck home, 60 W. Fourth St. This was the first Gross house, built in the mid 1880’s in Queen Anne style. It was recently repainted as a “painted lady” using 13 different colors. Harry Swoyer, manager of the Brooks/Alco Plant, lived there until his death in 1951; his widow until 1968. Former Eggers Home, 438 Swan St. This modest Victorian Cottage style home was built in the late 1800’s. The original owner was the father of George William Eggers, a gifted artist whose art and lithographs will be on display at the Gross Mansion. The father, George A.H.Eggers was described in 1905 as “the leading artist photographer in Dunkirk.” A wonderful photo collection will be on display at the Swan St. home. The Tuning Home at 706 Park Ave. Built in 1912 in the Queen Anne Foursquare style, it retains the classical bits of that era. A Palladian window in the gable end and pediment over the porch entrance are examples of such details. The original owner, Christian Schmidt, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. was the proprietor of a barbershop in the Erie Hotel Highlighted in the tour is at the Union Train Depot. a display of art and works of George William Eggers The home is decorated in the Romantic Vintage style (1883-1958) being shown and features leaded glass at the Gross mansion.

The Gross mansion, located at 715 Central Ave. Built in the 1880s, this

home is a variation on the Queen Anne Foursquare. Some interior features denote the beginning of the Arts and Crafts Movement including French doors and beamed ceilings. Members of the Reed family lived here from 1896-1914. Mary Koch, widow of Frederick and her sons then lived there. Son Fred C Koch was president of Fred Koch Brewery.

The Pucciarelli Home at 629 Central Ave. Built around 1881, the property was owned by Louise Heyl and is an example of Second Empire style featuring a Mansard roof. By 1887, it was owned/occupied by Louise B Arver. In the 1920’s, the Dunkirk Club occupied the building until its sale to a private owner in 1995. Tickets are available at the Dunkirk Historical

Cassadaga Country Club’s Wednesday Women’s League held its annual Pink The Links Tournament to raise funds for Roswell Park and breast cancer research on Saturday. The event was a roaring success and even included a bit of history. Nolan Swanson, teeing off with a 2-hybrid on No. 14, recorded his first career hole-in-one on the par 4. The team heard the ball hit the pin from the tee box, but no one could have guessed that the ball would be waiting for Swanson in the bottom of the cup when he reached the top of the hill. “Without exaggerating,” he said, “I never thought it was going to happen to me. My brother Ryan is a teaching pro. My brother Patrick lives in Fredonia and he’s had three hole-in-ones. I just trumped them with a hole-in-one on a par 4. “I love playing golf,” Swanson continued. “I never thought It was going to happen because I’ve played for so long. My Grandpa Swanson and my dad started taking me down to Sunset Valley down by the Chautauqua Mall when I was eight years old. Close to 30 years I’ve been golfi ng. I’ve owned a course (Pinehurst Country Club in Westfield) for five. I’ve never had one on my own course.” The tournament had a number of different classes with all-men,

mixed and all-women teams. There were over 30 gifts that were donated to the Chinese auction as well as a 50-50 drawing. Robert Basil Chevrolet sponsored a hole-in-one challenge on No. 8, but no one drove off with the new car as Swanson’s ace came on the wrong hole. “For running my first tournament it turned out pretty well,” Tournament Chairman Melissa Kelly said. “It’s good to raise money for Roswell Park because it’s local as opposed to having that money go out to corporate. “All the prizes that were donated were great,” she continued. “Sue Gotowka was very instrumental in getting the donations. Pat Kaus helped getting the hole sponsors. Special thanks also go out to Lori Danforth, Jodi Hoffman, Donna Frost and Nolan Swanson finds his ball in the cup after just one shot on the Nancy Phillips.”

The Bills did sign free agent Matt Leinart on Sunday, but the 2004 Heisman Trophy winner needs time to become familiar with the offense. Should Tuel start against New England, he would be the f irst undrafted rookie directly out of college to start in Week 1 for any team since the NFL merger in 1970, according to STATS LLC. This is not exactly what rookie coach Doug Marrone envisioned when he intended to have his starter in place within 10 days of the season.

Injuries Are Just Part Of The Game

By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

The recent news that Buffalo Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore is going to miss 6-8 weeks with a wrist injury is perhaps the most crippling injury suffered in the NFL this preseason. Yes, there are guys that have been ruled out for the year already, but no one who meant as much to his team as Gilmore. A rookie last season, Gilmore was one of the few players who exceeded expectations in 2012. Even with the defensive line shooting blanks for most of the season, Gilmore routinely locked down the opposing team’s top wideout. He allowed Jarius Byrd to play his typical ball-hawking style. Now the Bills are going into the season with Leodis McKelvin and Crezdon Butler as their starting cornerbacks. That’s not good for people who are scoring at home. CONTINUED ON PG 2

Lake Erie Fishing Hotline Contributed Article Department of Environmental Conservation

Overall, the walleye fishing has been slow this past week with the better, but modest catches to the west. Barcelona trollers have been working hard for a few walleye in 75-110 feet of water, with stickbaits and worm harnesses run between 65 feet down and the bottom. Most Dunkirk anglers are concentrating efforts in 80-95 feet of water. Trollers have also picked up a few walleye in around 65 feet of water off Dunkirk. Cattaraugus Creek trollers have been heading out to the international line and working west at depths over 80 feet. West of Dunkirk, walleye trollers also see the occasional steelhead, brown trout or lake trout catch. Run “cheater lines” for some supplemental steelhead action. A cheater line can be 6-8 feet of fluorocarbon line with a snap swivel on one end and spoon on the other. After you have dropped your downrigger ball to desired depth, attach the snap swivel to downrigger fishing rod’s line. Toss the lure into the water and the cheater line will slide down to the bow in the line, approximately half way down. Yellow perch fishing has been Upper Niagara River hit or miss this week.

White bass are easily caught near the surface when they push a school of emerald shiners to the surface (to feed on). Small white twister tails on a hook or small jig head and emerald shiners work great. Broderick Park anglers also report decent yellow perch fishing. Repairs to Bird Island Pier have finally been completed and the barricade has been removed. Anglers can once again fish from this pier that separates the Black Rock Canal from the Niagara River. Smallmouth bass fishing is generally good at this time of year on the river-side of the pier, south of the Peace Bridge. Boaters target smallmouth bass around Strawberry, Motor and Grand Islands.

Inland Trout Streams

The area trout streams are in good shape with moderate flows and cooler temperatures. Tricos are still hatching at first light, but is usually over by 9 AM. Trico emergers and spinners work well at that time. Stimulator patterns and terrestrials (ants, beetles, grasshoppers, crickets) will also draw trout to the surface. Productive offerings for spinning anglers include worms, salted minnows and small inline spinners. If you are a catch-and-release angler and use spinners, it is good practice to outfit your spinners with a single hook rather than a treble hook.

RED HOT JAMESTOWN JAMMERS CONTINUED FROM PG 1

The four game winning streak began Saturday against Williamsport after the Jammers had dropped two straight. And down 1-0 and getting no hit headed into the bottom of the eighth inning, the streak was in peril of climbing to three games.

geon Point, but they are tight lipped on some days. Out of Cattaraugus Creek good catches have been found at times in 55-75 feet of water. A couple favorable catch reports have also come off of Silver Creek in 55-65 feet of water. Emerald shiners are the top bait, but are likely not available at bait shops (worth a call around however). Schools of emeralds are showing at the foot of Sheridan, foot of Ontario and Broderick Park. Most are young of year and too small to put a hook through, but the patient dipper can find some larger shiners mixed in. Smallmouth bass fishing has been decent out of Buffalo around reef areas such as Seneca Shoal and Myers Reef. 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. The best time of year to target lake trout on Lake Erie is now! Spoons trolled near the bottom at depths over 80 feet is often very productive. Last 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.

ninth save of the season. The Jammers again found themselves down 1-0 late in the game against Williamsport on Sunday. Entering the bottom of the seventh, the Jammers were quickly running out of chances before the home team was able to put up a four-spot on the scoreboard thanks in part to Elvis Escobar’s first home run of the season – a two-run blast with two outs. Chad Kuel pitched the first five innings very effectively but didn’t factor in the decision as he went five innings and allowed just one first-inning run. He struck out three, allowed five hits and didn’t issue a free pass. Roberto Espinosa earned the win with a scoreless inning of relief and McKinney slammed the door for his 10th save. A lingering storm on Mon-

day left the field in unplayable condition, forcing the Jammers’ scheduled game against Mahoning Valley back to a Tuesday doubleheader. The twinbill was all Jamestown as the Jammers won the first game 8-0 before taking the nightcap with a 1-0 nailbiter. In the first game, the Jammers plated three runs in the third and four in the fourth and the game was all but over before fans even found their seats. They pounded out 13 hits, led by Escobar’s three knocks. Harold Ramirez, Adam Frazier, Wyatt Mathisen, Edwin Espinal and Dannny Collins each had a pair of hits in the rout. Isaac Sanchez drew the start for Jamestown, but it was basically a three-man job as Sanchez went three innings and Justin Topa and Oder-

man Rocha each tossed two shutout frames. Topa (5-2, 1.78) earned the win. The second game featured only seven combined hits for both teams, but Jamestown pushed across a run in the second inning and the pitchers made it hold up. It was again a combined effort by the Jamestown pitching staff as Buddy Borden got the start and threw four shutout innings with seven strikeouts before Andy Otamendi and Henry Hirsch finished off the shutout. The Jammers have just three home contests remaining in the regular season. A three-game series against State College on Monday, Sept. 2 through Wednesday could very well decide the Pinckney Division. Monday’s game is at 4:05 p.m. while Tuesday and Wednesday’s contests

York Giants. Smith struggled badly, throwing four interceptions and stepping out of the back of the end zone for a safety. You can justify it any way you want, but so far Smith doesn’t look like he belongs in the NFL. What Ryan did next was beyond comprehension. He inserted incumbent starter Mark Sanchez into the game in the fourth quarter of a preseason game. Sanchez is terrible, yes, but he’s played in the league for a number of years and everyone knows what he’s capable of. There was no reason at all for him

to be in that game. The result: Sanchez was scrambling for his life against guys who were looking to make an impact in their chase for a roster spot. He actually made a pretty nice play rolling out of the pocket but was drilled as he released the ball. At first glance, I certainly thought it could be as severe as a broken collarbone. He left the field with his shoulder wrapped tightly. To compound matters, Ryan was indignant to reporters following the game. Has there been any evidence that this guy is actually a good coach and not just a media sound byte? The point is that no injury is a good thing, but they happen. They happen in the regular season too. The Miami Dolphins lost Dustin Keller, the Ravens lost Ed Dickson and the Chiefs lost Tony Moeaki, so the tight end position has taken its lumps for a number of teams. Arian

Foster and Maurice JonesDrew have both sat out most of preseason because they’re nursing injuries. The Packers lost starting left tackle Bryan Bulaga for the season. That’s the one that might have the most immediate impact next to the Gilmore injury. Mark this down: Every single week of the regular season we’ll see a very valuable player go down for a significant length of time. Every team is going to deal with injuries and there’s little anyone can do to avoid them. So rather than complain about your team being banged up, just hope that the next guy on the depth chart can step up and do his job. Injuries have always existed in football and they always will. Deal with it. Stefan Gestwicki is the sports editor of the Chautauqua Star. Comments on this article or any other can be directed to stefan. gestwicki@star-mediagroup.com.

COMMENTARY CONTINUED FROM PG 1 It’s just a crushing blow that has left Bills fans screaming that the preseason is too long. Of course, running back C.J. Spiller also appeared to injure his knee (apparently he’s fine) while scoring a touchdown in the same game, so you can understand their angst. Another injury to hit a Bills starter is more serious and potentially career threatening. Quarterback Kevin Kolb was kneed in the back of the head while scrambling and suffered another concussion. Kolb, you may remember, suffered a concussion while with the Philadelphia Eagles that opened the door for Michael Vick to make his triumphant return to the NFL. Multiple concussions are not something that you want on your record. First off, it’s incredibly dangerous to a player’s future after the game. But also, a team is far less likely to sign a

guy with a history of concussions. A guy like Kolb just isn’t worth the risk. Fans who are calling for a shorter preseason just don’t get it. Injuries are part of the game. You simply can’t simulate live action in practice. Yes, guys like Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady are probably fine playing just a handful of series in the preseason games. But a guy like undrafted rookie quarterback Jeff Tuel (who is slated to be the Bills starter for Week 1 against the New England Patriots) could really use that playing time. Not only that, but preseason is all about roster battles. Coaches need to see which backup wide receivers can play on special teams. Or which backup linebacker would best be suited to play in the event of an untimely injury. The players are auditioning for 31 other teams should they get cut, too. It’s not just for the players either. Coaches

need to get accustomed to calling plays in real time. Defensive coordinators need to be able to read an offense and adjust. So yes, you’re going to see a lot of injuries over the course of the preseason that will make you wish that coaches didn’t play certain players, but the preseason is a necessary evil. All of this said, what Rex Ryan did in the New York Jets latest debacle was an absolute joke. He played rookie quarterback Geno Smith for the first three quarters against the New

Golfer's

D i a ry

APPARENTLY I’M A HOLE-IN-ONE MAGNET — YES, I SAW ANOTHER ONE

By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

My golfer’s diary will follow my golf outing(s) for the week. I’ll look at how course conditions, weather, equipment, playing partners, etc. affect the game we love. Please keep in mind that I only started golfing last year, so yes, my scores are hardly that of a scratch golfer. But that’s what makes golf great: You don’t have to be a zero handicap to enjoy the game. My brother-in-law Scott has been playing golf his whole life. He’s never seen a hole-in-one. Forestville golf coach Jack Dugan has been playing golf his whole life and coached some very good players, but until he sank one a few weeks ago, he had never seen a hole-in-one. I’ve now seen two in the matter of three weeks after I witnessed Nolan Swanson ace No. 5 at Cassadaga Country Club during the Pink The Links Tournament on Saturday. The unusual thing about No. 5 is that it’s a PAR FOUR. Yes, Swanson (coincidently the owner of Pinehurst Golf Club in Westfield) used a 2-hybrid and aced the short, but uphill par four. It was the first ace of Swanson’s long golf career. My group was teeing off on the par 3 No. 6 right behind No. 5’s green when we heard a ball strike the pin. We turned, but didn’t see a ball on the green. We assumed it had ricocheted into the rough, but when Swanson made the climb and found his ball in the cup, the celebration was on. He ran around screaming, laid on the ground and

hugged anyone within reach. But you know what? He more than earned it with an amazing feat. Congrats again to Nolan. As for my play in the tournament…I wish I didn’t have to write about it. The front nine was arguably the worst I’ve played all year. I had played a practice round on Friday and really thought that I was in for a good day on Saturday, but I was horribly wrong. On the plus side, I had a great group to spend the morning with as Star Media Group salesman Jason Ferguson joined myself and two of my oldest friends in the world Josh Torrance and Matt Meyer. The latter two and myself made something of a Northern Chautauqua Catholic School Class of 2000 reunion. The tournament raised money for Roswell Park and breast cancer research, so no matter how poorly I played it was great to be part of the event. Cassadaga Country Club did a wonderful job as always.

Chevrolet was a hole-in-one sponsor and anyone who sunk an ace on No. 8 would ride home in a new car. Naturally, my group started on No. 8 so we were far from warmed up when our shot at the car came. That said, my best tee shot of the day probably came on the hole as I landed on the back of the green. No one won the car, if you were wondering. We got off to a nice start on No. 9 and were just inches off the green with a very good look at eagle. Well four terrible chips and four missed putts later we were left with a tap in for par. That was basically the story of our day. All four of us are adequate golfers, but with the exception of Josh’s drives off the tee (which were wondrous to behold), no one played like it. I was definitely the worst culprit. I struggle with my drives from time to time, but Josh was wailing the ball, so I wasn’t worried about my drives being askew. What really irritated me was my lack of touch on my chip shots.

It was ugly. corporate. After a pedestrian two-under on the front nine, I really started to play better in the back and we put up a fiveunder, but it was too little, too late as the winning team was an impressive 15-under par. That was Swanson’s team. Again, as unimpressive as my performance was, it was so nice to be out playing in a tournament for a good cause. And as I’ve written before, never be nervous about playing in a tournament. I was nervous for a tournament early in the year, but an older golfer told me “The thing about golf is everyone stinks.” That really rings true. It’s a very hard game, but if you’re not having fun, you shouldn’t be out there. I’m sure there are still plenty of charity tournaments to come in September and maybe even October.

"Rob told me it's still baseball and not anything more," said Sheehan. "Don't be shy and work to improve." Sheehan has quickly taken to the experience. "It's different baseball. Here it's baseball eight hours a day. I'm really enjoying it." Sheehan was signed by Fran Riordan, a Canisius High School grad (1993), and the winningest manager in the Frontier League's history. "It's great to see both of those guys pursuing their goals," said Palisin. "Rob was the type of player that always showed the younger guys how it's done, and has set a great example for Brian." This summer, Herrmann was selected to play in the Bundesliga All Star Game representing the Paderborn Untouchables. The Untouchables open the post season this weekend with a five-game set against Heidenheim.

Herrmann also participated in the European Cup Tournament in Barcelona, Spain, where the team played in the Olympic Stadium. "All of the teams in the bracket are the best in Europe," said Herrmann "Two from every top country make it in, so we were fortunate enough to play the two best teams in all of Europe." He also played for the EU International Stars for a tournament in the Czech Republic called Prague Baseball Week. "The tournament was amazing and our team of misfit American import players won it all in the end. We beat both the German and the Czech WBC teams to win the championship." Herrmann was a four-time All SUNYAC selection for the Devils and among career leaders in nearly every offensive category.

FINAL PREPARATIONS FOR THE BILLS CONTINUED FROM PG 1 And that wasn't the only unsettling news to greet the Bills, who returned to practice in preparing for their preseason finale against Detroit Thursday. Top cornerback Stephon Gilmore will miss between six and eight weeks after breaking his left wrist against Washington. It's an injury that further depletes a cornerback position that already lacks experienced depth behind Leodis McKelvin. Running back C.J. Spiller has been excused to be with his family near Jacksonville, Fla., where his step-grandfather Hubert Allen Jr. allegedly killed two people and shot two others before killing himself on Saturday. Marrone said the team has been in contact with Spiller, but there's no timetable as to when he'll return. Chris Hairston, who was supposed to compete for the starting right tackle job, was placed on the season-ending reserve/non-football illness list. Hairston has not practiced after opening training camp on the physicallyunable-to-perform list. And two-time Pro Bowl safety Jairus Byrd didn't

Tennessee Tech last summer after the Volunteers suspended him indefi nitely for violating team rules. Rogers said the suspension was the result of him failing multiple drug tests. In Buffalo, Rogers had difficulty earning playing time among a young, talented group of receivers, which includes rookie secondround pick, Robert Woods, and rookie third-round pick Marquise Goodwin.

Hairston, who was expected to compete for a starting job at right tackle, was placed on the season-ending reserve/ non-football illness list. He's been bothered by a nagging back injury and hasn't practice after opening training camp on the active/physically-unableto-perform list. The Bills also reached an injury settlement and released guard Keith Williams.

USA Hockey Team Expects To Be A Favorite In Sochi By Larry Lage AP Hockey Writer

The U.S. hockey team has fl ipped the script since the last Winter Olympics. The Americans expect to be a favorite to win gold in six months at the Sochi Games after saying they were underdogs in 2010, when they won silver and were a goal away from knocking off the host Canadians. ''The only people that thought we had a chance were probably the guys in the locker room, or our coaches and management of USA Hockey,'' Chicago Blackhawks star forward Patrick Kane said Monday. ''This time, it's different.'' USA Hockey invited 48 of its top prospects - including 16 players from its 2010 team - for off-ice workouts and meetings at the Washington Capitals' training facility. ''Even though we invited 48 guys, I got calls from a few agents, 'Why not my guy?' I get that,'' said general manager David Poile, whose day job is running the Nashville Predators. ''We put some guys on the board that aren't at this camp that we should be looking at. We're totally open-minded. ''We have to take the 25 guys that give us the best chance to win.'' The players will get picked to play based on their body of work and how well they perform early in the NHL

season. The final roster is expected to be announced on Jan. 1 after Detroit and Toronto play in the Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium. Brian Burke, the team's general manager in 2010, set up an advisory group to assemble the roster. Poile plans to follow the model over the next four months. NHL general managers Stan Bowman, Dean Lombardi, Dale Tallon and Paul Holmgren along with scout Don Waddell will assist Poile, Ray Shero, the team's associate GM, Burke, the team's director of player personnel and USA Hockey executive Jim Johannson. ''We'll have much harder decisions to make, picking this team than we had 2010,'' Burke said. ''That's what you want.'' The advisory group met for five hours on Sunday, spending some of that time on talking about a possible roster and some tough decisions it will have to make. ''We have 16 returning Olympians that have a chance to make the team,'' Poile said. ''We've got way

more depth, and way more quality than we had in 2010.'' Six goaltenders were invited to the camp, and three will make the trip to Sochi. Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller was named MVP of the ice hockey tournament at the Vancouver Games, but he's not a lock to keep his job because Los Angeles Kings star Jonathan Quick has been perhaps the world's best at stopping shots the past two seasons. NHL goalies Jimmy Howard, Cory Schneider, Craig Anderson, along with 20-year-old prospect Josh Gibson, also are in the mix. Miller, despite his performance in 2010, was not named to the team's leadership group that includes defenseman Ryan Suter and forwards David Backes, Dustin Brown, Ryan Callahan and Zach Parise. While it would be a big surprise if any of those leaders didn't end up representing the U.S. in Russia, they don't have any guarantees. ''Nobody has been given a position,'' Poile insisted. Twenty-four forwards and 18

defensemen are attending the pre-Olympic camp, some of whom, such as 18-year-old Seth Jones, are there simply to experience what it is like to be around the country's best hockey players. Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma, who succeeds Ron Wilson, said his job is to pass along some information and messages to the players over the course of a few days to get them ready for a quick turnaround at the Sochi Games. The NHL has some games scheduled on Feb. 8, and the Americans - along with the other players in the league from other countries - won't have much time to prepare for their first game. ''We won't see these guys for another six months,'' Bylsma said. ''That's not comfortable for a coach.'' Bylsma, though, seems at ease with Team USA publicly liking its chances to win gold for the first time since the Miracle on Ice victory over the Soviet Union in 1980. ''It's a different expectation and different mindset,'' he said. ''Four years ago, we were under the radar and it certainly was a younger team and didn't have those expectations. This is a team that largely was in Vancouver and was in the gold-medal game and was a shot away from winning a gold medal. ''Now, the expectation is much different. We're going over to Sochi, Russia, with the mindset of winning a gold medal.''

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 stefan.gestwicki@star-mediagroup.com. 1) Los Angeles Dodgers 77-55 Can anyone beat a 1-2 punch of Clayton Kershaw and Zack Grienke in the playoffs? 2) Atlanta Braves 79-52 It’s hard to argue with the most wins in the Majors, but injuries are a concern. 3) Boston Red Sox 78-55 Shane Victorino just put up 7 RBI in a rout against Baltimore. Sox have 2.5 lead in East. 4) St. Louis Cardinals 78-54 It’s impossible to pick against the Cards in the Central after that series win against Cincy. 5) Detroit Tigers 77-55 Justin Verlander looks human this season. No worries, he’s still got gas in the tank for a run. 6) Texas Rangers 77-55 No team in baseball has as many road wins as Texas. That’ll be huge if it makes the playoffs. 7) Oakland Athletics 74-57 A series win against the Tigers proved to fans and the team that they’re not going away. 8) Tampa Bay Rays 74-56 A threegame skid has knocked them out of first, but no one expects them to fall too far. 9) Pittsburgh Pirates 76-55 Sinking ship? Landing Marlon Byrd and John Buck just seems like a desperation move. 10) Cincinnati Reds 74-59 The Reds have now won three of their last 30 series in St. Louis since 2003. That ain’t good. 11) Cleveland Indians 71-60 Terry Francona would absolutely be my pick for Manager of the Year if I had a vote. 12) New York Yankees 70-62 Alfonso Soriano has been laughably hot since joining the team. A nice A-Rod distraction. 13) Baltimore Orioles 70-60 This .500 baseball trend they’re on isn’t going to catch the Rays or the Red Sox in the East. 14) Arizona Diamondbacks 68-63 Five games behind in the wild card. That can be made up in the blink of an eye. 15) Kansas City Royals 67-64 A threegame winning streak has the arrow pointing up, but is it too late for the Royals? 16) Washington Nationals 66-65 Hey! They’re over .500 again. Oh wait, they were shooting for a World Series title. 17) Colorado Rockies 62-72 Remember when this season started off with such promise? That sure unraveled quickly. 18) Philadelphia Phillies 60-72 How cool was it to see Roy Halladay back on the mound and winning? Class act that guy. 19) New York Mets 59-71 The Mets got a potential steal by getting 2B Dilson Herrera from the Pirates via trade. 20) Los Angeles Angels 59-71 The Dodgers’ resurgence has to only make this season more painful for Angels fans. 21) Seattle Mariners 59-72 A fivegame losing streak basically erases any hope of a .500 season in Seattle. 22) Toronto Blue Jays 59-74 Who is the biggest disappointment? The Blue Jays or the Angels? That’s a tough call. 23) San Francisco Giants 59-73 Tim Lincecum will defi nitely be the most interesting free agent in recent memory. 24) San Diego Padres 59-73 The battle for last place with the Giants and Rockies is going to be a nail biter to the end. 25) Milwaukee Brewers 58-73 The Brew Crew really enjoys being a spoiler. They’ve beat some tops teams recently. 26) Chicago Cubs 56-76 Try to remain calm as you watch Alfonso Soriano go ape-crazy in New York, Cubs fans. 27) Minnesota Twins 57-73 This is the one terrible team with a bright future. There are studs in the Minor Leagues. 28) Chicago White Sox 55-76 Quietly, the Pale Sox have won eight of their last 10 games. Okay, nobody cares. 29) Miami Marlins 49-81 Their elimination number is down to three. So much for those title aspirations in Miami. 30) Houston Astros 44-87 There’s nothing more I can say. I’ve ragged on the Astros all year. It’s getting old.
