ter, parents seem to have come to expect the best of the writers and creators of television. Expecting that, just because a cartoon is a cartoon, it is acceptable for their child without proofing it. To this day, for instance, I will not allow ‘Shrek’ to be played in my house. I will not allow my sons to see a transvestite bartender parading around as though there is nothing wrong with it. I will not allow shows played in front of my children without my knowing about it, or without my permission. Parents have shucked off responsibility for ease. I am blessed to have an incredible wife who stays at home with our boys and endeavors to raise them into godly children. As Christians, that’s our prerogative, our job description. A parent’s job, by definition, is to raise their children to be moral, productive members of society. But in a society that is increasingly pushing away any semblance of a moral line between right and wrong, how can a parent do that? As shows like the VMAs and other such things become more and more prevalent, and mark my words- they will, we, as parents, must do everything in our power to keep our children safe from it. God has blessed us with an incredible honor and responsibility in providing care and nurture for these sweet creatures. I do not intend to let anyone else raise my boys. After all, to quote scripture, “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.”

Chautauqua County Humane Society Pet of the Week

Pets of the Week

This week we are featuring “Bob” and “Skeeter.” Bob is a three-year-old coonhound mix. He is super sweet, loves to go for walks and likes other dogs. He needs a dog friend that will not be too bossy with him as he doesn’t like confl ict. He would do well in almost any home. Skeeter is a four-month-old short haired fellow that was born to a feral momma. He was trapped and tamed and now he loves people. He would do well in almost any home. He does get along with other cats. If you think either of these great pets, or one of their shelter friends, could be your new best friend, stop at the Strunk Road Adoption Center and meet them. You will be glad you did!

Dubbed by ScienceDaily as “gender equality’s final frontier”, the division of household chores in a relationship continues to remain unequal between men and women, despite the strides made in equality for the past one hundred years. For many women, the distribution of household chores between herself and her spouse is a real bone of contention and can even cause some women to consider ending a relationship. In fact, the sharing of household duties has risen to number three in importance for a happy marriage according to a 2007 Pew Research Poll. Is a clean house really so important that some women are willing to divorce their husbands over whether he empties the dishwasher on time, folds the towels correctly or vacuums the carpet on the wrong day of the week? Apparently so, but for others, sharing household duties success-

I would defi nitely recommend robotic surgery to anyone needing surgery.” What robotic surgery procedures are performed at WCA? • Gallbladder removal • Colon resection • Removal of the adrenal glands • Hernia repair, • Appendectomy • Anti-reflux procedures • Prostatectomy, an operation to remove the prostate gland. “Robotic surgery is the newest advancement in minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgery,” says

Dr. Matthew Chang, M.D., FACS, board-certified surgeon at WCA, who performed Alisha Hill’s robotic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) procedure. “Many of our laparoscopic procedures at WCA can now be performed using the revolutionary robot technology. We are performing robotic surgery to remove the gallbladder, colon cancers, spleens, stomach cancers, adrenal

glands, hernia repair, and anti-reflux procedures. Robotic-assisted surgery offers our patients a more advanced minimally invasive surgical procedure that results in minimal scarring, a faster recovery, and a quicker return to normal activities.” Listen to what patients are saying about robotic surgery? WCA Hospital is the only hospital in the Southern

Tier to offer robotic surgery. To listen to what patients are saying about robotic surgery or to schedule surgery, go to www.wcahospital/roboticsurgery. To get your questions answered by a representative, call WCA Hospital at (716) 664-8614.

WOMEN’S SECTION sharing Household chores fully requires work, just like the relationship itself, and for those that do, their marriages are happier as a result. How did the division of household chores become such an important factor in today’s marriage? Not so many generations ago, women were primarily the stay at home moms and performed domestic duties as their contribution to the household. The man was the typical breadwinner and the woman took care of the house and raising the children. Once women entered the workforce and families required dual income households to survive, maintaining the house became a second job after the day job. For men, their responsibilities hadn’t changed. For women, they had to figure out how to do it all: work part-time or full time way from home, see to the kids needs, and take care of the household. But with the introduction of equal rights and women’s rights, women began to speak up and men began to step up. The change didn’t occur overnight, it was gradual. Despite today’s man doing more than twice the household duties that his father or grandfather did, for many of today’s women, it still doesn’t seem enough. How can that be? Lots of men share in the household responsibili-

ties and still do guy jobs like yard work, household maintenance and car fi xing. Some men have become stay at home dads, swapping roles with their higher wage earning spouse and opting to fulfi ll the roles of child raising and domestic duties, normally assumed by the stay at home parent. Yet, sharing of household duties remains a source of marital strife in many marriages. The spouse may feel that

the work should be evenly distributed and isn’t, one spouse may be more critical of the other regarding the ways that chores should be done, or it becomes a parent-child dynamic in the marriage as it relates to chores. There are always those that feel laundry, cooking and cleaning are women’s work and refuse to have their masculinity challenged, but for the most part, today’s man has no problem standing alongside

his woman in the kitchen doing dishes or the laundry room folding clothes. As mothers, it’s our responsibility to teach our sons to do household chores alongside their sisters or father. As wives, it’s our responsibility to ask our husbands for help when we feel overwhelmed so they can share in the household duties and to also assist them in their guy duties that we often avoid at all costs, making us just as

guilty. As partners in relationships, it’s our responsibility to communicate our needs and expectations, to respect each other for our individual contributions and to thank each other for our support, love and sharing of life’s experiences. It’s all in our perception of the equal distribution of work. Rome can’t be conquered in day; it will be more like one dish at a time.

Couples that share household duties tend to have happier marriages that incorporate open and honest communication, mutual respect and common goals.

RELIGION SECTION Keeping the Faith

Rev. Michael Lokietek Family Church Fredonia

Dear Pastor, will God help me even though I made some really big mistakes? There’s an old saying, “You’ve made your bed, now you’ll have to lie in it.” It’s true that our bad choices can lead to hardships in our life (Proverbs 13:15) and that our mistakes can have significant consequences. This is why God wants us to make good choices so that our lives can be blessed and not burdened with results of past missteps. But what should happen when we do make a mistake or a bad choice? Should we fall into hopelessness and resign ourselves to

bearing the guilt and consequences of these poor choices? Will God help us out of the ditch that we dig for ourselves? We can answer these questions with one wonderful word…mercy! The Bible says that God is a God of mercy whose mercy endures forever (Psalm 136). What is mercy? If we examine the concept of mercy, we see that basically, mercy is not getting what we deserve! We read about the history of Israel in the Old Testament. Whenever God’s people cried out for mercy, they received it! Israel had a covenant with God that would bless them if they obeyed

and open the door for calamity if they disobeyed. Psalm 107 gives a summation of hardships for the people of Israel due to their disobedience. Hunger, imprisonment, bitter labor, and illness came their way because of their disobedience to God’s commands. Even though they deserved the bad consequences of their actions, they cried out to the Lord for mercy. What happened? Did God say “deal with it” or “you got what you deserve”? No! God is a loving God Who desires to bless His children. Again and again He delivered them from their selfimposed troubles. The Bible tells

us that Israel is an example to us Christians (1 Corinthians 10:1-6). You may have made some mistakes, but God’s goodness and mercy are more than enough to get you out of any mess you may have gotten into! If you want to set your life right, go before God and repent of your mistake. And ask Him to help you be better. If He needs you to do any “undoing” of your mistake…do it quickly! God is a God of eternal and unlimited forgiveness and mercy. We can never exhaust His mercy if our heart is truly sorry!

because you won’t have to be standing out in the elements while you attempt to unlock the door with a key. The covering also helps prevent ice from building up along the walkway. Finally, installing a good light at all the entrances

will allow you to easily see where you are going and any potential obstacles that might be in your way. With a few modifications, your house can be a very comfortable and safe haven for many years to come.

And since it’s already a place you call “home,” why not enjoy it during your retirement years?

care providers. According to the Alzheimer’s Associations “2013 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures,” there are over 5 million Americans who are living with Alzheimer’s disease and in 2010 there were 83,494 Americans who died of Alzheimer’s. This type of dementia can cause problems with memory, thinking, and behaviors, which can make it hard for individuals who suffer from it, especially the elderly, to complete daily tasks. Alzheimer’s can be very trying on those suffering from it as they may feel frustrated and confused by

their inability to remember names, events, and dates. They may also feel suspicious of others and threatened by losing their independence because of their inability to complete daily tasks on their own. To reduce the feeling of isolation that is often felt by individuals suffering from memory loss and their caregivers, one local option is the Memory Café, which is located at Comfort Today on 17 Gifford Ave. in West Ellicott.

Prendergast Gallery to Feature Jerry Paduano

Paduano’s drawings feature a variety of subjects.

Contributed Article Prendergast Library

The Prendergast Library Art Gallery will present “Journey,” the artwork of Jerry P. Paduano, from Sept. 13 through Oct. 11. “I call this show ‘Journey’ because I feel art has allowed me to take a creative journey. I am continually trying new mediums, techniques, and styles. Many artists settle on one way of doing things and continue to improve and master a particular form of art. I’m not there yet, and don’t know that I ever will be. I

like exploring,” he said. There will be an opening reception from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13, to meet Paduano and view his work. “Because I work mostly from photographs, I draw images that spark my imagination, my memories or my emotions, and I hope they do the same for the viewer,” the artist said. A lifelong resident of Chautauqua County, Paduano grew up in Greenhurst. He graduated from Maple Grove High School, where he was an art major. He and his wife Suzette,

who have been married for 37 years, designed and built their home in Panama. They have three children and four grandchildren. “Lately I have enjoyed drawing people. Much of my work is inspired by my family, the grandchildren in particular,” he said. “We love living in the country, the farms, the

wildlife and our animals, so many of my works, including the Amish, depict life around my house and in my neighborhood. Other portraits just make me wonder about the life of the subject, what they were thinking or feeling at the

moment their image was captured,” Paduano said. Library hours to view “Journey” will be 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. The next Prendergast

Library exhibit will be Indian Images, a collection of paintings by George Clever and traditional Delaware Indian cultural items. The library is located at 509 Cherry St., Jamestown. For information, call 4847135.

inFinity loCal MusiC showCase, Continued FroM paGe 1 This is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year. It’s very necessary. Infinity is completely funded by local grant money. We receive a small grant from NYSCA, but otherwise there’s no federal or state funding. It’s all grant writing and local contributions and people that like Infinity that keep us running and help keep the creativity going with the kids. It’s definitely a great community event because it’s a celebration of Infinity, but it’s also a celebration of community being able to help sustain this program. Do a lot of Infinity students go to the LMS to learn about the future of what they’re studying? We certainly encourage our students that are old enough to be out and going to the venues that allow all ages. We do try to have all age venues available so it’s not just people having to go into a bar. We have a lot of younger kids that are engaged in the music community and want to be able to go out and experience it. We also have students from Infinity who will be performing in our café that night so the community members will get a chance to see what Infinity and our students are doing, and get a glimpse of what they’re supporting. Is there one particular event that draws a larger crowd? There’s really not. The great thing about LMS is that people are out and they’re moving all night long. You see tons of people on the street, which you

don’t always see in downtown Jamestown unless there’s a larger event going on. A lot of people have made this an annual outing for themselves. They wait until we release the schedule and they go through and make a plan of where they’re going to go and when. We try to encourage patrons to try new places they haven’t gone to before. It’s a good chance for the venues to get new clientele as well, getting people in their doors that maybe hadn’t thought about going. It’s the same thing for the bands; it gets some bands into some downtown establishments where they might be able to make a connection for a future gig. We try to make it a good experience for everyone involved, getting more customers in the door, getting more audience to promote music to, all the while promoting the arts in the local community. Tell me a little bit about the poster design for this year’s showcase? Gary Peters designs our poster every year. We thought that it really showed our cultural diversity here in Jamestown. It’s an iconic image. Infi nity is very diverse in the types of arts that we try to offer to our students. We thought that it was a great image to show our diversity. The Infi nity Local Music Showcase will be held on September 7 from 6 p.m. to 2 p.m. in downtown Jamestown. For a full schedule and list of venues and bands, visit

marion art Gallery opens season with Xing Perspectives’ on sept. 6 Contributed Article SUNY Fredonia

The Cathy and Jesse Marion Art Gallery at SUNY Fredonia will opening the 2013-14 season with the exhibition “Xing Perspectives” from Sept. 6 to Oct. 13. An opening reception is

planned for Friday, Sept. 6 from 7 to 9 p.m. Both the reception and the exhibition are free and open to the public. This international exhibition from Dutch artists Jacqueline Kooter and Jan Theun van Rees will feature a site-specific installation that will combine the two artists’ areas of interest

– people interacting with their environment and the perception of space in relation to memory. Kooter works in the mediums of painting and video. She is a graduate of The Amsterdam Academy for the Visual Arts. She specializes in site-specific large painterly installations, which sometimes

are related to dance performances, and in the production of meticulously made short animation movies. In these movies she creates an imaginary world in paint, where human figures are moving around; sometimes real people (dancers) and sometimes cut out paper figures. Van Rees is a self-trained

photographer who studied painting at the Academy of Visual Arts in Groningen, the Netherlands. In 2007, van Rees published a photo book, “One Wall Away–Chicago’s Hidden Spaces,” commissioned by U.S. Equities in Chicago. He works as an art instructor for Central College of Iowa at the

Study Abroad program in Leiden, Netherlands. Gallery hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 12 to 4 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 12 to 6 and Sunday 12 to 4 p.m. The gallery, which is located on the main level of the Michael C. Rockefeller Arts Center, is closed Mondays and during campus breaks.

The classes Contributed Article

by calling 673-9020. Much research in child development points to the important role of music in the growth of children. Not only does making music provide a means for creative expression, but it also develops brain facility. Participation in music at very young ages is often identified as a factor in optimizing intelligence and enhancing potential. Studies show that children who participate in music do well academically. Music

aids language development, social development, emotional development and higher-order thinking skills. Many families today play music for their babies because they have heard about music’s positive effects. Listening to music is beneficial, yet it is but one aspect of music. Actually making music and moving to music are other important ways to aid the development of young children. There are simple ways to

play with music that nurture the whole child and bring happiness to both children and their caregivers. Growing with Music’s free trial classes present musical play ideas from the internationally-acclaimed music curriculum, Music Together® that tailors music learning to the way that children learn—through play and repetition. Often parents feel that their lack of musical talent inhibits them from making music with their child. The

Music Together curriculum takes families past that fear with fun, family structured, non-performance oriented activities. Multi-age groupings in classes allow peer learning, safe boundaries for beginning socialization and enhances parent-child bonding.

Jamestown Public schools announces universal Free meal Programs Contributed Article Jamestown Public Schools

Jamestown Public Schools has been approved by the United States Department of Education and the New York State Department of Education to serve breakfast and lunch at no charge to students in all Jamestown Public Schools elementary and middle

schools through the Universal Free Meal Programs. “Research shows that children who eat a well-balanced breakfast and lunch perform better in school,” said JPS Director of Food Services Walter Gaczewski. “This program supports child nutrition programs and increases breakfast and lunch participation while eliminating any barriers hindering a child(s) ability

to participate.” The programs allow all students enrolled at JPS elementary and middle schools to be automatically eligible to receive free breakfast and lunch. Jamestown elementary and middle schools families do not need to submit a free or reduced meal application to be eligible. “Many Jamestown children

rely on school meals,” said JPS Superintendent Tim Mains. “Our district has a 70 percent poverty rate. If we can increase school meal participation through this program at the elementary and middle school level, we can make not only make progress in childhood hunger but also increase the likelihood of a child(s) success during the school day.”

On our computers, we have several different pieces of software that will play movies and music. You might use iTunes or Windows Media Player, those are generally the most popular and they are free. Over the years, I have found a media player that has worked well for me called VLC. I like it because it is free and it plays every kind of media fi le that I have ever wanted to play. In the past,

tures that VLC has is the ability to stream hundreds of Internet radio stations. You can access these radio stations by opening VLC and clicking the View Menu, then click Playlists, and then click Internet. I like the Icecast Radio Directory, there are tons of channels from all over the world. You can listen to everything from classical music to country. Most of the stations are commercial free. For those that love to tinker with software and computers, VLC allows you to customize it and to do different things that you couldn’t normally do with mainstream media players. Plugins and extensions allow you to change the “look and feel” of the VLC interface with the use of various skins. Other plugins exist that allow for the viewing of Internet TV stations, most of these are foreign channels. VLC also has some nice features that are built-in. The software has a graphic


equalizer that allows you to adjust bass and treble. You can choose from several presets or create your own custom setup. You can also broadcast an audio stream over your home network or over the Internet using VLC. In addition to all of this, you can convert media fi les too. The conversion is slow as it converts as the media fi le is being played. VLC can also display subtitles for those movies that have subtitles distributed with them, and you can adjust the speed of playback. At times I use iTunes and Windows Media Player, they are decent pieces of software, but I always fi nd myself coming back to old reliable, VLC. You can download VLC for free at vlc/download-windows. html. Just click the button for the installer package, install and then give it a try and see what you think.

My Favorite Media player I would fi nd that the other mainstream media players would have some types of movies or music that it could not read. This would sometimes cause problems, so when I discovered that VLC can play just about anything, that was reason enough for me to use it. Not only does VLC play Quicktime and Windows Media, but it also can serve as a DVD player on your computer. It has played very obscure music and video types for me, once I used it to play a video that I had recorded on my old fl ip phone! I couldn’t play that fi le through any of my other media players. VLC is very versatile and can do many things with the use of plugins and it has a great open source community that develops new features in the software. VLC is open source, meaning that software developers volunteer and contribute to improving the software and adding more features. One of the fea-

environment. Students are exposed to the knowledge and skills required for professional development including curricula covering basic human communication, speech sciences and technology, professional issues, research methods, speech-language and hearing disorders, theoretical and applied approaches to assessment, intervention, and educational pedagogy. Research opportunities augment the instructional programs by ensuring that faculty, staff, and students are aware of the contribution they all make to the production of knowledge within the field of speech studies. The department actively supports students

in research, scholarship, creative processes, clinical practice, and service to the community. The program also provides supervised diagnostic and outpatient services to communicatively disordered clientele at the Henry C. Youngerman Center for Communication

Disorders on the SUNY Fredonia campus. The Speech-Language Pathology master’s degree is built around two equally necessary sectors: the academic program and the clinical program.

lost plaCes, Continued FroM pG 1 a way for Chautauqua to keep people coming back and continue to compete with other vacation sites. Schmitz adds that the roller coaster was built on the incline behind the present day Norton Hall, which provided the gravitational pull the ride required, with the added benefit of affording a good view of the lake and Chautauqua grounds. The Royal Scooter had a tract of 500 feet and its car reached a speed of 80 miles per hour. “People sat facing towards the middle,” says Schmitz. “There were no seatbelts and this helped to keep people in their seats with little centrifugal force.” Tickets were 25 cents for ten rides. The Institution assured patrons that physicians had not only approved the ride, but also recommended it for health. As part of what he calls the “salesmanship” of the day, the roller coaster was described in this way: “Physicians of high standing recommend it; if you ride once, you will ride again. If you don’t ride at all you miss a novel experience. A fi ne view of Chautauqua Lake and a cool breeze always awaits you at Chautauqua’s circular gravity railway, or roller coaster.” It was further described as one of the largest and best roller coasters in existence, giving people “a chance to ride downhill without snow.” According to Schmitz,

after a few years the roller coaster lost its novelty and was sold to Celeron Park sometime in the 1940s. The only existing image of The Royal Scooter today comes from the back of an old ticket. Seaver Gym Nearby Seaver Gym, recognizable for its distinctive bridge, was still another place with a surprising past. Schmitz says that he believes it was the first place in the county where basketball was played, having been brought in by Chautauqua High School, sometime around 1912. He adds that his colleague, Bill Flanders, who he describes as “a long-time Chautauquan who knows the place better than anyone,” remembers the game being played at the site in the 1920s, and that the space was much too small for the tournaments held there. “If you’ve ever been to

Seaver gym, there is really no place for a crowd,” says Schmitz, who adds that The Royal Scooter was a roller coaster meant to attract crowds to the Institution. there was quite a bit of wagering that went on with the games. “The crowd would often interfere with the games, sticking out legs and tripping players and there was often a lot of trouble.” Bicycle Department and School of Gymnastics According to the Chautauqua Assembly Herald, a bicycle school with riding, rental and sales was opened on Scott Avenue in 1891, headed by Mr. W.S. Maltby from New York City, who was described as “a world champion bicycle rider.” Considered one of a number of special departments within the School of Gymnastics, private lessons in physical education were offered there, including lessons at the bicycle school. Today, bicycling and walking remain the primary means of transportation on the grounds.

The Blue Devils head into the 2013 season minus their top two scorers last season and looking for someone to fi ll that void.

The Fredonia State men's soccer team will look to pick up where it left off when it opens its 2013 season this weekend. A senior leadership group – which includes midfielder Jay Dry (Lockport), midfielders Josh Best (Farmington), and defender Jakob Persons (Albany) as tri-captains – has set high goals for 2013, beginning with a return to the SUNYAC Tournament. The team's last postseason appearance came in 2010. "I think we're looking pretty strong this year," said Persons in a recent interview posted on the team's blog. "A lot of the team has come together a lot quicker than I thought it might." CONTINUED ON PG 2



WOMEN’S LACROSSE CONTINUED FROM PG 1 TWO ALL-CONFERENCE RETURNEES: With Kleine out, the top returning players are seniors Kristi Putzig (Williamsville) and Shannon Letina (Clarence). Putzig, a forward, was third in scoring in 2012 with seven goals – three to win games – and 17 points. Letina, a defender, started all 17 games she appeared in. Both players were selected Third Team All-SUNYAC. Also back are five players who were starters for at least half the 2012 season: senior midfielders Catie Hale (Lockport), Maria Green (Loudonville), and Mary Bruton (Palmyra); junior defender Maggie Horan (Livonia); and sophomore defender Sarah Lindovski (Baldwinsville). Hale was the top scorer among the quintet with two goals – both gamewinners – and eight points. Among Horan's 19 starts (in a total of 19 games) were two in goal as an emergency replacement when Meszaros went down with an injury. Letina could also step into goal should the need arise in 2013. Bruton, Hale, and Horan are the 2013 tri-captains. The 28-player roster includes 14 freshmen. It's the largest freshmen class since the current seniors were a 13 strong in 2010, and it's the second time head coach Chris Case

has welcomed this large a freshmen class. The only other time came in 2007. Case enters the 2013 season with a 111-80-21 coaching record. SCHEDULE AT A GLANCE: The home portion of the season begins Sept. 6 vs. Penn State Behrend on the first day of the Blue Devil/Clarion Hotel Classic. The Blue Devils will also face Mount Union during the Classic, which concludes Sept. 7 and includes two games by the Blue Devil men. The Virginia trip this weekend, the Clarion Classic, plus games vs. St. John Fisher and William Smith will give the Blue Devils six straight non-conference games at the start of their schedule. They will play three additional non-conference games, plus their normal nine-game SUNYAC schedule, beginning Sept. 27 at home vs. Brockport. Other home SUNYAC opponents are Geneseo (Sept. 28), Buffalo State (Oct. 5), Potsdam (Oct. 18), and Plattsburgh (Oct. 19). The four SUNYAC road games are at Cortland (Oct. 11), at Oswego (Oct. 12), at New Paltz (Oct. 25), and at Oneonta (Oct. 26). The first round of the SUNYAC Tournament is scheduled to begin Nov. 2.

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. No one ever plays golf as much as they wish they did, but these past few weeks have been torture with the severe lack of golfi ng in my life. I’ve still been able to get out once a week, but that’s not nearly enough to keep one’s game honed. That little rant aside, I had an awesome time playing at Hillview Golf Course in Fredonia this past weekend. I had nothing to do all day so Bryan and I decided to play a full 18 holes. The course was in fantastic shape. Actually, “fantastic” probably doesn’t even do it justice. The greens were awesome and the fairways were healthy and full. There are few holes that sons as a Blue Devil. Smith I’ve ever played that give me more problems than and Jeremy Voigt, another No. 1 at Hillview.

FSU MEN’S SOCCER CONTINUED FROM PG 1 The senior group also includes midfielders Luke Tylutki (Pittsford) and Chase Lipshie (Port Jefferson Station), and defenders Dino Salcic (Penfield) and Joe Pagano (South Wales). Tylutki was Second Team All SUNYAC the past two seasons, while Lipshie is back after missing the entire 2012 season with an injury. His return to form was noticeable during a pre-season scrimmage vs. Jamestown Community College. Tylutki and Dry had one goal each in last year's win over Hobart. What makes that significant is that returning players accounted for only seven goals last year. In addition, it marked only the second time all season players on the 2013 roster scored goals in the same 2012 game. Dry is the leading returning scorer. He had four goals last season, two of them to win games. Tylutki, Best, and sophomore defender Mike Biggane (Amherst) finished with one goal each. The 2013 roster includes five players who started in at least half the Blue Devils' games last year: Dry, Biggane, Tylutki, sophomore defender Keith Braun (Elma), and junior goalkeeper Michael Schreiner (Spencerport). Schreiner started 13 of the 19 games last season and posted a 5-71 record with a 1.85 goals against average. He started all nine SUNYAC games. NEW NAMES, EXTRA DUTIES: Head coach P.J. Gondek, who's beginning his 14th season, has 10 newcomers on the 26-player roster – eight of them freshmen. One of the freshmen, forward Brandon Schick (Cheektowaga), has displayed a scoring touch during the scrimmages and pre-season drills. The key losses among last year's senior class are forward Tyler Williams, who led the team with 12 points (including four goals), and midfielder Ryan Smith, who earned post-season awards in each of his first three sea-


of the green. I’m not even sure if the water is meant to be a hazard. It looks like a drainage stream or runoff from the pond on No. 5. Either way, I splashed down just perfectly and had to take a six on the hole even after nearly chipping in from my drop. I missed a birdie putt on No. 2 that would have been a great way to get back into it. No. 2 at Hillview is a very doable par 5. I can’t reach the green in two, but some big hitters probably could. I’ve hit on birdies before, but on this rusty afternoon I threeputted my way to a bogey. It took one more hole before I was warmed up. A terrible tee shot and then a botched second shot put me in terrible position on No. 3. That’s always frustrating because it’s another hole that I can sometimes score on. Actually, Hillview is a course I usually play pretty well on. A lot of that has to do with the condition of the greens. They’re not scary fast, but they’re fast enough that you can count on your ball rolling true. I then started a nice string of three consecutive pars on Nos. 5-7. Bryan and I both got a three on the fi rst par 3 of the course on No. 5. His shot was a little far and on the back of the green while mine was just short on the fringe, but both of us converted as we should. We actually both recorded par on the long par five No. 6, too. It may

have been the fi rst time ever that we both had par on back-to-back holes. He struggled a bit on the par four No. 7, but I actually made it in four for the fi rst time ever. It’s probably the signature hole at Hillview as the green is surrounded by a scenic grove of trees. Here’s what usually happens: I hit a decent tee shot to the right so I have a look into the green. Then I toe my second shot and it goes way off into the right, maybe into the woods. This time (actually both times through the hole) I decided to just be stubborn and aim my second shot right at the giant tree that blocks the green. Both times my ball landed softly at the base of the tree and gave me a great look at an easy chip shot. It will never be an easy hole, but at least it worked out for one day. I fi nished the front nine with a 44. That is, if not my mean, at least my mode score. I swear every other round I play I shoot a 44. I knew I could play better because I started off so slowly, but I also sank a few long putts that certainly helped my score on that front nine. The back started off terribly once again. After a great drive, I just couldn’t put the ball in the hole and ended with a double bogey again. I followed with a pair of pars however, so I was three shots better on the back nine after three

Lake Erie Fishing Hotline between Dunkirk and the PA border at depths over 75 feet. Flashy spoons run off downriggers near the bottom can bring in consistent catches of lake trout averaging 6-8 pounds, with the occasional fish pushing the 20 pound mark. Yellow perch action generally heats up in late summer. On Thursday, anglers found feeding schools deep off Cattaraugus Creek and Silver Creek in 70-85 feet of water. Minnows fished near the bottom produced good catches including some limits. Some decent perch catches also came just east of Dunkirk in 6070 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 “pin heads” and too small to put a hook through, but the patient dipper can fi nd some larger shiners mixed in. Smallmouth bass fishing has picked up around reef in shoal areas. Good areas to try include Seneca Shoal, Myers Reef, Evans Bar and Van Buren 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.

Upper Niagara River

Thick schools of white bass were providing some awesome fishing at Broderick Park. The white bass are

keying on schools of small emerald shiners moving along the shoreline towards Lake Erie. 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 fi nally 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. Drifting outside weed edges with a 3-way bottom bouncing rig and crayfish is a good bet.

holes. A bogey, par, bogey still left me two shots better. I missed a super easy par putt on No. 16, but a bogey followed by another bogey on No. 17 still left me one shot better headed into No. 18. No. 18 is not an easy hole. It’s listed as a 236-yard par 3 and plays every yard of that. I’ve hit some pretty good tee shots with my three wood, but generally I just hit a terrible tee shot G and leave myself fighting W just to save bogey.

agency and it could pay big dividends for Chris Johnson, who hasn’t lost a step but hasn’t had any room to run the past few seasons. Honestly, this is probably a last-place team in a lot of divisions, but hopefully they can beat the lowly Jaguars for third place.


Denver Broncos (1st) — This is the easiest call of any division. Peyton Manning proved he’s over his neck operations and he has all kinds of weapons with Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and Eric Decker making up one of the best wide receiver trios in the league. The defense suffered an unexpected hit when Von Miller was suspended for six games, but their schedule is easy, the division is weak and Manning won’t let them slip for even a second because he knows his window is closing. No one would be surprised if the road to the Super Bowl went through Denver come January.

— One bad year can be considered an aberration, but two terrible years in a row probably signifies the end is near for Phillip Rivers in San Diego. He’s never been much of a fan favorite with his icy demeanor on and off the field and now his play gives fans an excuse to call for his head. Apparently Ryan Mathews is healthy, but fans will believe it when they see it. They’re nothing special on defense and are probably doomed for a 6-10 season at best. At least they get to play Oakland twice.

The Florida State product was the first and only quarterback taken in the first round. Had Manuel not been ready, the Bills would have had no choice but to have undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel start on Sunday. Manuel's injury complicated the Bills plans at quarterback. He was supposed to have been competing with veteran free-agent addition Kevin

Kolb for the starting job. That competition ended when Kolb sustained a season-ending concussion in a 30-7 preseason loss at Washington on Aug. 24. Kolb has since been placed on injured reserve. The Bills spent last week scrambling to add quarterbacks by signing free-agent veteran Matt Leinart and acquiring Thaddeus Lewis in a trade with Detroit. Leinart was cut on Friday, a day after he struggled in a preseason loss to the Lions. Lewis was also cut, but has since been signed to Buffalo's practice squad.

MLB Power Rankings (through september 6, 2013)

By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

These weekly power rankings are based on more than just standings. They are the opinion of just one person and meant to facilitate discussion. Feel free to disagree with the rankings and send your thoughts to 1) Los Angeles Dodgers 83-55 Yasiel Puig is news, whether it’s hitting, slacking off or getting hurt. The guy sells. 2) Atlanta Braves 85-53 No one has more wins, but you still feel like they’re flying under the radar in the N.L. 3) Boston Red Sox 83-57 Jon Lester outdueling Max Scherzer was a great omen for Red Sox Nation. 4) Detroit Tigers 81-58 Just rest Miggy. For a full week even. This is about the World Series, not Triple Crown. 5) Pittsburgh Pirates 81-57 ‘Cutch hit his 100th homer and the Pirates got win No. 81. Good night in Milwaukee. 6) Oakland Athletics 79-59 A’s crushed some serious contenders in getting back into the hunt in the A.L. West. 7) Texas Rangers 80-58 An upcoming series with Pittsburgh could be a World Series preview. No, really. 8) Cincinnati Reds 78-61 Aroldis Chapman is just nasty. A 106 fastball is dirty, but a 92 mph slider is just unfair. 9) St. Louis Cardinals 79-59 The offense has gone totally stale. Maybe they’ll get hot at the right time again. 10) New York Yankees 74-64 The offense is humming and the Bronx Bombers look playoff bound. 11) Tampa Bay Rays 76-61 They picked a bad time to go cold. Yanks, Tribe and O’s right on their heels. 12) Cleveland Indians 73-65 Chris Perez is a roller coaster in the 9th but the Tribe is still hanging around in the Wild Card. 13) Baltimore Orioles 73-64 Chris Davis has fallen off the 61-homer pace, but should reach magical No. 50 shortly. 14) Kansas City Royals 72-66 Coco Crisp has been otter than any hitter in baseball as the Royals are rolling. 15) Washington Nationals 70-68 Bryce Harper has had a rough week, but there’s no excuse for losing track of outs. 16) Arizona Diamondbacks 69-68 Generally a .500 team doesn’t make the playoffs. Maybe next year D’backs. 17) Colorado Rockies 65-75 Carlos Gonzalez got pinch-hit for? Perhaps he’s not all that healthy after all. 18) Toronto Blue Jays 64-75 If you like terrible pitching and lots of home runs, the Blue Jays are the team for you. 19) San Diego Padres 62-76 Congrats to Will Venable on a new two-year contract. He’s had a quietly solid year. 20) Los Angeles Angels 64-73 Lousy pitching + no payroll flexibility = probably more losing next year, too. 21) Seattle Mariners 62-76 Taijuan Walker is in the Majors and that’s exciting no matter what the standings say. 22) Minnesota Twins 61-76 Justin Morneau is really not with the Twins anymore. That just feels strange. 23) Philadelphia Phillies 63-76 It hasn’t been very sunny in Philadelphia this season. Injuries and poor play aplenty. 24) New York Mets 62-75 Losing Matt Harvey has sucked all the energy out of this entire franchise. Let tanking begin. 25) San Francisco Giants 61-77 Remember how they’ve won two of the last three World Series titles? No, me neither. 26) Chicago Cubs 58-80 The Wrigley Field renovations are exciting, but the team won’t be good for a few years. 27) Milwaukee Brewers 59-79 Another five-game losing streak is nothing for this sorry franchise. It’s been that kind of year. 28) Chicago White Sox 56-81 They’ve got some work to do to avoid being the worst team in the Windy City. 29) Miami Marlins 52-85 A threegame streak is proof that these guys really don’t want to lose 100 games. 30) Houston Astros 45-93 The three-run home run in the 9th was awesome. The 12-inning loss was inevitable.
