Westfield Grape Discovery center Hopes to attract Visitors From near and Far oFFiciAls celeBrAte At recent riBBon cutting By Patricia Pihl Managing Editor

The Grape Discovery Center in Westfield officially opened last week, representing the culmination of ten years of cooperation among government and agricultural officials to promote tourism of the largest Concord grapegrowing area in the world. Those efforts came to fruition last week as Assemblyman Andrew Goodell and State Senator Catherine Young along with Helen Baran, president of the Concord Grape Belt Heritage Association, and other officials celebrated the ribbon cutting at the Center. A second ribbon cutting was dedicated to the Star Family Exhibit Room, which provides visitors with the opportunity to learn the history of the grape-growing business in the area with exhibits of the Concord grape and its cultivation from its beginning. While the Visitors Center was launched in 2008 with the purchase of the building, Baran credited Senator Young with ob-

“The grape industry in this region is worth about $340 million; there are more than 2,000 jobs directly associated with grape farming, making it the largest grape growing area in the United States outside of California.”- Andy Dufresne, “Traversing America’s Grape Country.”

connecting the county- Five Years Running updAted dFt communicAtions directory mAkes its wAy to cHAutAuQuA residents By Scott Wise Star News Writer

This year marks the fifth annual publication of DFT Communications’ Chautauqua County Community Directory. The special anniversary brought with it some exciting changes to the county’s main resource for business and residential information. The book, published by Star Media Group, underwent an overhaul in design this year. The design team had a goal of making the book modern while still providing the same great resource to the residents of Chautauqua County. “This year’s book is one that we’re really proud of,” said Dan Siracuse, President of Star Media Group. “We had a great team that worked hard to make the directory a success, and keep it appealing to every age group.” The Beginning of the Countywide Directory In the past, a phone book has been a source only for phone numbers and business listings. As time progressed, the innovators at DFT wanted their signature product to be wide-reaching and go beyond the need for only phone numbers. That’s where the directory came in.

Check out our

“The directory is more than just a phonebook,” said Mark Maytum, President and COO of DFT Communications. “It’s a resource for every member of every community across the county. We wanted there to be a reason for people to get the book; to actually want to read it and see the various things our great county has to offer.” Updated Look The 2013-2014 directory features an overhaul of nearly every section it provides. One big change was moving the frequented yellow pages to the front of the listings. This was done in order to provide readers with easier access to the great local businesses they’re looking for while giving businesses greater visibility to potential customers. Another update was to the community guide section of the book. Besides streamlining the designs, DFT added a section for “Lost Places of Chautauqua County.” Readers of the Chautauqua Star may be familiar with this series, which looks at the various historical areas of our county that have been lost or forgotten over time.

Chautauqua County Humane Society Pet of the Week

Pets of the Week

This week we are featuring “Contessa” and “Delilah”. Contessa is a gorgeous two-year-old kitty that is super sweet. She likes other cats and even has a “boyfriend” in our cat colony room. She is calico with extra toes. She would be fine in most homes. Delilah is a wonderful three-year-old pit bull mix. She loves attention and gets along with most other dogs. She is still active so she will need time to exercise. She loves going for her daily walks and then plenty of cuddle time is what makes her happy. If either of these pets would fit into your home and heart, please stop in at the Strunk Road Adoption Center and meet them. You could be the second chance they are waiting for.

Fourth annual Step up for autism celebration septemBer 28


do MORE with High Speed Internet

Online Learning Contributed Article TRC

Plans are under way for the fourth annual Step Up for Autism celebration, to be held Saturday, Sept. 28, in Celoron. The event is being coordinated by The Resource Center and Filling the Gap, Inc., with support from parents and village officials. The event will begin and end at The Resource Center’s Administrative Offices at 200 Dunham Avenue. Participants will walk to Lucille Ball Memorial Park on the shore of Chautauqua Lake, then return to

The Resource Center (a total distance of about 1.5 miles) for food, children’s activities, a cake auction, and prize drawings. Step Up for Autism was created after local parents lamented that there was no social skills training available in Chautauqua County for children with autism spectrum disorder. So in July 2010, The Resource Center established SUCCESS (which stands for Supporting, Understanding, Changing, Coping, and Everyday Social Skills), a program that helps children and young adults with autism learn

social skills to enable them to better interact with the world around them. In addition to raising money for the SUCCESS program, Step Up for Autism provides an opportunity for community members to show their support for people with autism by taking part in the walk. The suggested entry fee is $20, but donations of any amount will be accepted – organizers just want to have a huge turnout. Those paying the registration fee will receive a 2013 Step Up for Autism T-shirt and lunch the day of the event. Registration begins at 9

a.m., with the walk scheduled to start at about 10:15. There also is an opportunity for people to earn prizes for themselves by raising money online for Step Up for Autism. Prizes range from a $20 gift card for raising $150 for Step Up for Autism, to a $100 gift card if you raise $550.

RELIGION SECTION Keeping the Faith

Rev. Michael Lokietek Family Church Fredonia

My child will be going to college next year. I am concerned about all the temptations he will face. Friend, I’m sure that there are many parents who share your same concerns. I believe that the greatest challenge during this time occurs because, as an adult, you are much more aware of the dangers and choices out there while most teenagers, in their limited experience, think they’re ready for anything. The question becomes “how do we prepare our teens for the exposure and choices they will face in the world without making

them fearful?” The most important thing to do while you’re preparing your teen is to pray. This will do two things; it will give you direction when making decisions as well as help you to maintain an attitude of faith through this whole process. Remember, God knows all things that are to come, and you must trust Him with the care of your teen. The Bible says in the Book of Proverbs (3:5-6) “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. (6) In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your

paths straight.” Also, ask God to reveal any area in your child’s life that He thinks you need to “pray extra attention to,” and pray for their spiritual strength so that they maintain their faith despite any unbelieving influences they may encounter. It’s also important that you, as the parent, set the example of walking in trust and faith in your life so that your teen will see the wonderful results of following God. If you are anxious and act as if you don’t trust God to watch over them, you could be creating an emotional and spiritual insecurity

in their heart. Children look to their parents for the example on how to handle things. It is your responsibility to teach them how to face all of life’s situations using prayer and trust. Proverbs 22:6 says to, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” While the methods of teaching your child will change as they age, look for opportunities to share God’s goodness and talk about answered prayers in your own life as you work together to do the tasks required to prepare them for independence.

Five Reasons You Are Not Losing Fat

At this time of year, the temperate outdoors provide perfect walking meditation conditions. On rainy, cold days or dark evenings, walking meditation can be performed indoors but taking it outside adds a natural and holistic perspective. The walk should last about 15 or 20 minutes and should have no purpose to the walk other than to meditate. Before beginning, it’s best to set an intention for the particular meditation but no specific destination for the walk. If feeling relaxed and calm, walk slowly, with an easygoing and steady pace. If agitated or tense, try a fast paced walking meditation to channel the excessive energy and ease the irritated mind. While walking, use deliberate steps and focus on body posture and even breathing. Feel the feet come into contact with the ground and focus on the sensations experienced. Keep the eyes cast down or half closed and go within. Like sitting meditation in yoga class, let the outside noises fade and pass through to prevent a wandering mind and remain focused on the meditation. Walking meditation doesn’t require a large space to practice. A 30 to 40 foot unobstructed path is all that is required to walk back and forth at a steady pace. Don’t choose a path that is too steep or rough since the walk itself would require more concentration than would allow for a proper meditation. The beach or a relatively straight trail would be a good choice for an outdoor meditative walk. An even better option is a labyrinth or a circle pat-

tern that allows a person to walk continuously with no final destination. For an indoor walking meditation practice, select a hallway or large room where one can walk undisturbed and concentrate on this simple meditation technique. Prayer is a form of meditation, which could explain why many labyrinths can be found in churchyards or

spiritual places, available to the public for walking meditation. There are actually a few labyrinths found locally in Chautauqua County, which include the Pilgrim’s Path at Lily Dale, the Circle of Peace labyrinth at the Chautauqua Institution or the Unity Peach Park labyrinth at Delaware and Linwood in Buffalo. If feeling moved, one could also build a simple backyard labyrinth

using stones to designate the paths or mowing a grass labyrinth in a backfield or pasture. Whether taking a sandy beach stroll or a country road walk, walking meditation provides an excellent chance to enjoy the coming autumn season and do something positive for yourself one step at a time.

monitoring changes in your body composition is the first key to success. • Water retention: Proper hydration is critical to fat loss and overall health. However, too little or too much water can cause problems. Water intake requirements are influenced by several factors, like weight and activity levels. A good starting point is to consume 1/2 ounce of water per pound of current body weight. Drink at least 16 ounces first thing in the morning -- pure water is best -- and more if you are thirsty. • Too much exercise: Excessive exercise creates stress and can be counter-

productive when you’re restricting calories, causing loss of muscle mass. Low-intensity activities like walking -- along with minimal strength training to retain muscle mass -- is all that’s needed. • Too much of the wrong thing: Diet is the most efficient way to create a caloric restriction, maintain blood sugar levels, which are conducive to fat loss, and provide all the nutrients you need for optimal health. If you’re not seeing positive changes in body composition, the problem is almost always your diet. • Stress and lack of sleep: Chronic stress can have an adverse effect on hormonal

balance, which can hinder fat loss and cause loss of essential lean body mass. Stress and lack of sleep disrupt many delicate physiological functions. Regularly practicing some method of relaxation and getting seven to nine hours of sleep every night will make a big difference in your fat loss efforts. More information about smart dieting habits and optimal health can be found at Don’t ditch your diet before seeing the results you want. By working smarter, not harder, you can achieve your goals before losing motivation.

SENIOR SECTION Retirement plan tips for conservative Savers StatePoint

Whether you’re a risk taker or a more conservative saver, retirement planning should be a top priority. Taking charge of your savings, regardless of your life stage or savings style, can help to ensure you get “to� and “through� retirement and live the lifestyle you think is right for you. If you have an employersponsored retirement plan, experts say that you can

benefit by taking a closer look at your account to explore ways to combat risk and protect savings for the future. “No matter what kind of saver you are, connecting with a retirement consultant or financial professional can help restore confidence in your retirement plan,� says Chuck Cornelio, President of Retirement Plan Services at Lincoln Financial Group. “These individuals will review your

risk preferences, as well as what’s available within your plan to help you map out a path to retirement that is right for you.� Consider the following five tips that can help you manage risk and volatility within an employer-sponsored account, like a 401(k) or 403(b): • Know your plan: Many options within an employer-sponsored plan are designed to offer capital protection and volatility management. Some can accommodate changing market conditions, seeking to protect growth as the market fluctuates and defend against losses. Knowing what investment options are available to you is the first step to protecting your savings. • Consider lifestyle options: Your risk tolerance may change over time based

on how many years away you are from retirement. For example, investments known as target date funds are designed to manage risk over time without moving assets out of a retirement portfolio, so participants always stay invested. The flexibility of these funds can cover a broad range of risk tolerance. • Explore in-plan guarantee options: Some features in today’s retirement plans include guaranteed income options that can provide savers with a steady income stream in retirement while also offering protection against downturns in the market. • Review your investments: Ask your employer about retirement planning education, online tools or one-on-one support to get a better handle on whether your investment strategy

Suns =CB E6GO`S\¸b



is in line with your overall retirement goals, as well as your risk tolerance. Take advantage of all the resources available to you. • Stay the course: A common mistake people make is letting their emotions lead to actions. Resist the temptation to move out of your investments into areas you think are more stable. The best way to prepare for retirement is to ride the market’s waves and remain

invested for the long-term. More retirement planning information and tools can be found at If you’re enrolled in your company’s retirement plan, remember to stay on track to be better prepared for the years ahead.

Though his tour in Vietnam was short, at just 18 years old the dedication and sacrifice he showed on behalf of his fellow Marines embodies the type of heroics that we all should strive to emulate. Now, as we pass over the John Stow Vietnam Veterans and MIA Memorial Bridge, it will serve as a small token of thanks and an ever-present reminder of the cost it takes to keep us free,” said Assemblyman Goodell. “I am grateful that this

bridge, in such close proximity to his home, is being dedicated to John Stow, a Vietnam veteran, and all Vietnam veterans and MIA,” said Sally Carlson, Town of North Harmony Supervisor. “I think it’s just great that veterans of the Vietnam War are being recognized with this bridge dedication. They have been ignored for too long and were not treated well when they came home. To be named for John Stow is especially appropriate because before I-86 was constructed he personally walked through that location as a youngster every day,” said Jay Gould, Chairman of the Chautauqua County Legislature. When PFC Stow went to Vietnam at the age of 18, he was there for only a few short weeks before making the ultimate sacrifice and falling in battle. His life,

cut far too short, nevertheless had a profound impact upon his family, fellow Marines, community, and entire nation. A true hero in every sense and a leader among his fellow Marines, Stow was a model soldier who garnered the admiration and respect of those who knew him. For this reason, it is fitting that this bridge will bear his name as a representative of all his fellow Vietnam veterans, many of whom went Missing in Action and whose ultimate fate remains unknown. Today, by designating the State Route 394 bridge as the “John Stow Vietnam Veterans and MIA Memorial Bridge,” their sacrifice will receive the recognition it deserves as everyone who passes it will be reminded of those who are to thank for the freedoms we enjoy today.

“John was a real hometown boy who grew up in and loved this community, which our family has lived in for generations. He gave his life and everything he had for us, so it is a great honor and very fitting that this bridge will bear his name and he be recognized in this way,” said Frank Stow, Jr., John’s brother. “The commitment and sacrifice of men like John Stow is an inspiration for us all. As a nation we owe our Vietnam War veterans a tremendous debt of gratitude for what they went through, especially those who never came home. They are role models whose selfless service to our country must never be forgotten and this bridge is one way for us to ensure they are always remembered and honored,” said Senator Young.

Audubon Presenting 8 th Annual Enchanted Forest Contributed Article Audubon Center and Sanctuary

If there are children in your life, you have an opportunity to experience a magical evening with them. The Audubon Center & Sanctuary’s eighth annual Enchanted Forest will delight children and their parents and grandparents on Friday and Saturday evenings, Oct. 4 and 5. Actors dressed in humansized animal costumes will greet them along a luminary-lighted trail. Volunteer fireflies lead the way with lanterns, and the animals tell about their lives, habits, homes, and more. Both children and adults will be charmed by this year’s animals: a great horned owl, bat, spring peeper, spider, monarch and garter snake. Children and adults are

encouraged to wear Halloween costumes. An excellent nature-themed alternative or addition to the traditional Halloween celebration, the Enchanted Forest introduces amazing animal characters that share fascinating, fun (and educational!) information through dramatic and entertaining stories. The walk takes about 45 minutes. Cider and popcorn, indoor crafts, a backyard campfire, and story-telling complete the evening. The fee is $12, $8 for members (Friends of the Nature Center), $6 for children 4-12, and free for children 3 and under. Pre-registration with payment is required to reserve a specific time slot from 6 p.m. through 8 p.m. Tours begin every 10 minutes. Deadline for registration is Friday, Sept. 27; there will be no ticket sales at the door.

School classes are invited to take a Discovery Walk that will include an introduction to some Enchanted Forest animals on Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 2 and 3. Detailed information -- including many pictures from previous Enchanted Forests -- and a registration form are available at http:// audubonenchantedforest. To register, call (716) 5692345 or print and mail the on-line registration form. Tickets will be mailed upon receipt of payment by cash, check or Visa/MasterCard/Discover. The event takes place rain or shine. Sponsors to date for Enchanted Forest 2013 include Carroll Rod and Gun Club, King’s Heating, Stanton’s Garage, Z&M Ag and Turf, Busti Cider Mill, and Whittier Farms. Enchanted Forest is made possible through the dedication of many volun-

Sanctuary is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren.

Registrations are being accepted at Chautauqua Lake Central School for two public swimming pool programs that will begin in October. For each ten-week program, registrations must be received in the District Office by 4 p.m. on Fri. Sept. 27. Checks will not be cashed until that date. No payments are accepted at the pool. The Adult Pool Program for ages 18 and up will be held on Tuesdays, 6:30-7:30 p.m., starting October 8. Aquatic Exercise class will be taught, and two lanes will be available for lap swimmers. The Family Swim Program will be held on Wednesdays, 6:30-7:30 p.m., starting October 9. One lane will be available for lap swimmers. Swimmers ages 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult, who must stay to supervise but need not swim. Registration is open to individu-

als or to families (up to 4 swimmers each evening). Registration forms for both programs are available in each school office and at Locate the Swimming Pool link on the left side of the home page. Forms are also in the literature rack at the main (center) entrance to the school building. If sufficient registrations are not received in the District Office by the announced deadline, the program will be cancelled and payments returned. If each program runs, additional registrations may be accepted after the deadline as space allows, but registrations received on the day the program meets will not be recorded until the following day, so use of the pool will begin the following week. Both programs will be offered again in the winter, with registrations due by 4 p.m. on Fri. Jan. 10. If there is sufficient demand, a sixweek spring series will also be offered, with registrations due by 4 p.m. on Fri. April 11.

Birthday or pool parties may be arranged by rental only. For rental information, including the fee schedule established by the Board of Education, see the Facility Usage link on the left side of the home page at Swimming Lessons (for students in Kindergarten through grade 5) will be offered on Saturday mornings, starting in January. Swim & Dive Club (for students in grades 3 and up) will be offered after school two days a week, starting in January. For both programs, pre-paid registrations must be received in the District Office by 4 p.m. on Fri. Jan. 10. Questions? Call Pool Coordinator Michaelle Alonge, 753-5800, ext. 1109. During the school day, calls may be directed to voice mail. Please leave a message. For questions about renting the pool or other facilities, call the Community Relations Office, 753-5802.

off by thinking that it’s too difficult or too esoteric,” he explained. It’s also a welcomed departure for Steinberg. His last book, “Jews and Judaism in the Middle Ages” was a scholarly text that examined Jews and their often misunderstood place during that era. “I often work in highly specialized fields, and I’ve gotten tired of writing for an audience of 15,” Steinberg joked. “I also have a really strong feeling that my profession has a done a great job of taking literature away from people, that is, of making it seem inaccessible.

taining a grant of $1.3 million allowing the project to move forward much more quickly. “Without the help of state Senator Catharine Young, we would have taken longer,” said Baran. Harold Smith of the New York State Wine and Grape Foundation remarked, “The Discovery Center seed took a while to germinate and grow. Today, we celebrate the center coming into fruition, much the same as the grape vines are coming into fruition again this year.” Smith thanked Senator Young, The Cornell Cooperative Extension, as well as the work of many dedicated citizens. “The wine and grape foundation thanks you, Senator Young and Assemblyman Goodell, as strong supporters of agriculture and the grape industry this county,” said Smith. Other sizable monetary gifts for the non-profit en-

the area’s rich viticulture history. The center includes a tasting bar, where visitors may sample wines produced in nearby New York and Pennsylvania as well as non-alcoholic beverages and other grape products, as well as a gift shop with many specialty items.

Assemblymen Goodell said, “While we thank the funders, even more important than the funding was the personal commitment of the people that made this a reality. As you know, funding is a tool, and that tool only produces results when people use it. “This is really the beginning of what we want to do in the future- it is that future that we always need to be focused on.” The idea for the center happened by chance as

Baran explained, when Dave Momberger, building and operations chair for the GDC, happened to see a billboard for a cranberry discovery center while on a business trip to Wisconsin. Momberger would take the idea back to home as something that could work for the area’s extensive grapegrowing region. Former Cornell Cooperative Extension director and GDC executive director Andy Dufrense was also credited by those attending the ribbon-cutting for his long-time commitment to the project. In his 2011 book, “Traversing America’s Grape Country,” Dufrense encourages travelers to “just get off the interstate and see everything” particularly when it comes to growing and enjoying grapes.” He has stated, “The grape industry in this region is worth about $340 million,” adding “there are more than 2,000 jobs directly associated with

Led by a record-breaking performance from their senior quarterback Jake Sisson, the Jamestown Red Raiders overcame an early deficit on their way to a 50-28 win over Kenmore West on Saturday. The Red Raiders have now outscored their opponents by a combined score of 102-42 in winning their first two games of the season. Sisson had a game to remember as he threw six touchdown passes and finished the game 21 of 40 through the air for a Western New York record 508 yards. Yes, 508 yards. He broke the previous record of 492 yards set in 2010 by Williamsville South quarterback Joe Licata — who is currently playing at the University of Buffalo. Sisson’s mark is the fourth highest in New York State history with Syracuse CBA’s Greg Paulus holding the record at 543. Despite the lopsided final score, Jamestown didn’t exactly have control from the get-go like it did in Week 1 against Niagara Falls. In fact, the Red Raiders were down 28-24 with about six minutes left in the third quarter before Sisson really caught fire and tossed three quick touchdown passes to give Jamestown the lead and some cushion. The top target in Jamestown’s dynamic passing attack was receiver Zack Panebianco, who hauled in nine catches for 223 yards and a pair of scores. Ben Larson added five catches for 78 yards and also

scored twice. Stephen Larson was good for four grabs, 90 yards and a touchdown. Nearly lost in Sisson’s incredible day was another school record. Kicker Quinn Lee Yaw nailed a 47-yard field goal, the longest in Jamestown football history, that gave the Red Raiders a 24-14 halftime lead.

Fredonia took it to host Falconer, 42-6 on Friday night. Matt McCarthy only carried the ball seven times, yet accumulated 139 yards and three touchdowns for the Orange and Black. His touchdown runs were of 25, 55 and 39 yards and he added a two-point conversion run as well. Fredonia led 28-0 before the first quarter came to a close and was on cruise control from there on out. The Golden Falcon offense was not without its punch, but it couldn’t keep pace with the Hillbillies’ attack. Jacob Youngberg led Falconer with 87 yards on 21

carries and DaShawn Jackson scored on a 5-yard run for the lone score of the game.

Forestville Nets Win Over Silver Creek

By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

The Forestville Lady Hornets improved their overall record to 4-1 and their CCAA East II League record to 3-1 with a win over Silver Creek, Monday in high school volleyball action. Forestville downed the Black Knights (3-2, 1-2) in straight sets, 25-18, 25-22, 25-14. The Lady Hornets were supposed to be vulnerable this year after losing a plethora of seniors to graduation last year. “We had the approach that we’re going to turn the page,” Forestville head coach Jack Dugan said. “Last year is gone and we’re moving forward. I’m not looking at this as rebuilding and neither are the kids … I have nine seniors and two juniors. They all know the system it’s just that they’re getting more opportunities than they did before. Overall they’ve adjusted quite well. “As far as how we’re playing, we’re getting there,” Dugan con-

Gowanda APA League

Fessenden, Laumer & DeAngelo (716) 484-1010

go about writing about the American League wild card race because it might have changed by the time I fi nish this sentence. There are literally six teams that still have a shot at a playoff bid. The Texas Rangers and Tampa Bay Rays currently sit in the pole position and would play each other in a one-game series if the playoffs started today. The surprising Cleveland Indians just keep winning and are now just half-agame behind the two leaders. The Baltimore Orioles are just two games back despite having the Major Leagues’ worst record in one-run games this season. The New York Yankees and Kansas City Royals are both 3.5 games back and with so many teams to catch and pass, their playoff odds are quite low. But holy smokes! Six teams vying for two spots? There could be as many as three teams that win 85 games and don’t even get into a one-game playoff. That’s incredible. Another aspect of these races that’s incredible is that no team has clinched a division or even a playoff spot yet. How is that even possible with just two weeks

remaining in the season? By the time this is published the Red Sox and the Dodgers (and possibly the Braves) will have clinched divisions by far, but here it is on a Wednesday and no playoff spots are technically determined yet. And the best part of all these races? They aren’t meaningless like when teams in other sports are battling for the final playoff spots. No, the Milwaukee Bucks are not going to win a seven-game series from the Miami Heat. But you’re telling me the Reds couldn’t go into Atlanta or Los Angeles and take three of five from one of those teams? Or the Rays couldn’t knock off the Tigers or Red Sox in a short series in which they can send David Price, Matt Moore, Alex Cobb and Chris Archer to the mound? No, it’s pretty clear that as amazing as this race to the playoffs has been and will be, the playoffs themselves will be even better. I can’t wait.

D i a ry


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. Some people go golfing to get away from their wives for a few hours, but my wife expressed interest in going with me recently, so I’ve taken her with me a few times in the past few weeks. We’ve been going to The Vineyards Golf Course in Fredonia. It’s perfect for many reasons. First off it’s very close to our house so we can get there and start golfing quickly once we get out of work. Secondly, it’s a relatively short course. There are no par 5s and a bunch of par 3s. It gives me a chance to work on my irons while giving her a doable course without frustrating her. Thirdly, the owner Rick and his staff are always very nice to us. The other golfers on the course are great, too. I never feel like the group behind us is getting impatient because of our intense slowness. We let them through when we get the chance and everyone is always very pleasant. The first few times I went

with my wife, Adriel, I played absolutely terribly. Maybe I was nervous playing in front of her or maybe it took a while to get used to waiting for her to hit the ball three or four times before I got to hit again. Either way, I was slightly embarrassed because my scores with her were nothing like what I usually bring home on my scorecards. But this last time we went out to The Vineyards was great. The weather was just about perfect for an Autumn afternoon and there were very few people out on the course for us to slow down. Not only that, but I played very well and ended up carding a 40 – my best score at Vineyards this year. The round started very well for both Adriel and myself. I hit a 4-iron off the tee, nearly chipped in and had a tap in for par – just like you would draw it up. Adriel usually struggles badly on No. 1 because she goes weeks without picking up a club and it takes a while to get it back. This time however, she nearly got inside of my tee shot. Granted, hers was a low line drive that hit the cart path, bounced straight into the air shot 100 yards towards the green. It was crazy, but effective. No. 2 is one of my better holes as it’s just a straightaway par 4 without too much in the way of reaching par. After my drive I was thinking birdie, but my iron shot was yanked way left and then my chip shot was lousy and I

ended with a double bogey. Frustrating, but not a round killer. Luckily, “6” would be the highest I’d have to write on the scorecard – for my scores at least. No. 3 was a bogey thanks to a f lubbed chip. Chipping has undoubtedly been my best area of golf this year since I started going with the chip-and-run tactic rather than trying to use the lob wedge and hit it up in the air. I’ve even taken to using my hybrid to putt it from the fringe on many occasions. Unfortunately, I still have setbacks and this chip was just putrid. I more than made up for it and got my confidence sky high with my first two shots on No. 4. My drive was straight onto the fairway and crushed. The ground was soft so there wasn’t much roll, but I was still very happy with the shot. I pulled out a hybrid shot and proved it was actually too much club as I landed the ball on the green but it rolled off the back. Again I nearly chipped in and had a tap-in for par. Unfortunately No. 4 was Adriel’s undoing. It took her many, many shots to finally get the ball in the hole. To her credit though, she didn’t give up. She said her officially score was 14, though I told her most people max scores out at 10. I also told her one of the keys to golf is putting the last hole behind you. You don’t gain anything by dwelling on how poorly the last hole went. All

you can do is go on to the next tee box. I continued to play very well. One of the hard things about playing different courses all the time is adjusting to different greens. Sometimes they’re a little stiffer some places or maybe faster at others. Putting is such an enormous part of the game and dropping a couple long ones can really make for a superb round. Now that I’ve played at Vineyards a handful of times this year I fi nally started putting well. That is, until the last three holes when I developed a bad case of the toilet bowls. On all three holes I lipped out putts. Two of them were for par and another was for birdie. It never feels good to have a putt jump out on you, but when it’s for birdie it’s an extra punch in the gut. I shot my best round at Vineyards at 40, but Adriel also shot her best of her three rounds at the course this year with a 65. Her first time out was a 72 I believe and then a 68. So she’s steadily improving and more importantly, she’s having fun. As I’ve told people many times, if you’re not having fun while playing golf you’re doing something wrong. Yes it can be frustrating at times, but don’t let your score ruin your good time. Stefan Gestwicki is the sports editor of the Chautauqua Star.

Geno, E.J. Prepare For Clash By Dennis Waszak, Jr. AP Sports Writer

EJ Manuel and Geno Smith were two guys with big arms and even bigger dreams when they first met at a football camp in South Florida a few years ago. They kept in touch with occasional text messages through high school and then college, where Manuel starred at Florida State and Smith at West Virginia. By the time the draft rolled around in April, both quarterbacks were considered fi rstround possibilities. Manuel went to Buffalo at No. 16, a bit higher than some projected. Smith, once mentioned as a possible No. 1 pick, slid all the way to the Jets in the second round at No. 39. ''I stood up,'' Smith recalled Wednesday of his reaction when Manuel was drafted before him. ''I congratulated him and that was it. I was happy for him. I was happy for every single guy that got drafted.'' Smith, however, went through the embarrassment of having television cameras focused on him as each pick was made in the fi rst round - without hearing his name. ''I'm past that now,'' Smith said. ''I hate to talk about it because I'm focusing on what we have here, which is a great opportunity, (a) good team and we've got a tough matchup coming up on Sunday.'' That's when the attention will again be on the fi rst two quarterbacks drafted, when the Bills (1-1) and Jets (1-1) square off. It's the 106th game in the series, and the fi rst featuring a pair of rookie starting quarterbacks. ''To be compared to EJ, I'll take it,'' Smith said. ''EJ's a great guy. He's accomplished a bunch in his career and I think the

FSU Goes 3-4-5 And Wins At Behrend

Blue Devils Sweep; Madison Earns Third All-Tourney

WEEK TWO HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL RESULTS CONTINUED FROM PG 1 Youth is the name of the game for Southwestern as Weinstein and Sandbloom are both juniors and Pannes is a freshman. Junior running back Hunter Peterson churned out 86 yards on the ground while sophomore Brenden Kennedy picked up another 57 yards. The win was not a flawless one for Southwestern as the Trojans struggled with fumbling and lost a couple in Allegany-Limestone territory. Tanner Hoose booted a 22-yard field goal and had two extra points. Kennedy recovered a fumble in the end zone to account for the rest of Southwestern’s scoring. Salamanca 43, Silver

ly the defensive line, proved to be too much for Clymer to break through against as the Wildcats took care of the rival Pirates, 28-0, Saturday afternoon. Andrew Graham threw for a pair of touchdowns and also took off and scored himself on a long 82-yard run in the fi rst half. The offense had plenty of success when the ball was in running back Devin Moorhead’s hands as well as he gained 148 yards on just 15 carries. The Sherman defense, which shut out Franklinville 12-0 last week, has yet to allow a point. Moorhead CLASS DD was a key to that defense Sherman 28, Clymer 0 with a pair of intercepSherman’s defense, especial- tions and 10 tackles. Dylan Scouten also added 10 Creek 18 Sherman Williams scored a pair of touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough for Silver Creek-Forestville to earn its first win of the season as Salamanca cruised to a 43-18 win. Williams had scores of 2 and 4 yards and Jacob Lewis tossed a 42-yard scoring strike to Brandon VanZile, but the Silver Creek defense continued to struggle with the big play. Tadd Beattie rushed for 182 yards on just 14 carries, including a 74-yard touchdown dash, to lead the Warriors to a 2-0 record.

tackles while adding a third Sherman interception. Jared Dunnewold and Garrett McAfoose led Clymer with 11 tackles apiece.


Springville 7, Dunkirk 6 Wet, sloppy conditions made for a low-scoring game between the Dunkirk Marauders and the Springville Griffi ns. Dunkirk jumped out to an early 6-0 lead thanks to a short field set up by a 58-yard punt return by Richard Pickens. From the Springville 2-yard line, Nick Bomasuto punched the ball across the goal line for the first score of the game. Dunkirk had four fumbles in the game and it was the

one right before halftime that proved to be the most costly. A botched exchange between center and quarterback was pounced on by a Springville defender and set the Griffi ns up at the Dunkirk 8-yard line. Justin Dewitt capitalized for Springville with a 1-yard touchdown dive moments before the first half came to a close. The second half featured a series of three-and-outs and fumbles by both teams. Bomasuto led Dunkirk’s defense with 12 tackles while Lucas Lugen had a great game with 10 tackles and a pair of sacks. Bomasuto also led the offense with 62 yards on 10 carries. Maple Grove-Chautauqua

Lake 49, Nichols 6 Kyle Mayer threw for 155 yards, Jonah Tanner hauled in a screen pass and took it 68 yards for a touchdown, the Thunder Dragons found the end zone on three of their first four possessions and Maple Grove-Chautauqua Lake had no trouble knocking off Nichols in a non-league high school football game. So far the Maple GroveChautauqua Lake merger is a roaring success as the team has won convincingly each of the first two weeks. Kicker Riley Beaton was a perfect 7-for-7 on extra point attempts as the Thunder Dragon offense gave him plenty of chances to hone his craft.

HARVEST CELEBRATION Septemeber 20, 2013

"HArvest Moon CeMetery tour" Contributed Article Festivals Fredonia "One of the most beautiful cemeteries in Western New York is Forest Hill..." So begins the history of the cemetery located in Fredonia, New York (Fredonia is located at Exit 59 off I-90). On October 18-19, 2013 Festivals Fredonia, Inc. - noted for its Ghost & History Tours, will host horse-drawn trolley tours every half hour through the cemetery. Come hear the tales of the founding families, local heroes

and some of the most notorious villains from around the area all told by knowledgeable guides. If you're lucky, you may even hear the stories of the past from the dearly departed themselves residing within the cemetery gates. The tours begin at 7 p.m. and run until 10 p.m. The trolleys will load passengers at the gazebo in West Barker Commons Park on West Main Street in downtown Fredonia and return to the same area. Last year the trolley tours sold out – don’t be left standing in the cold – call now for reservations. The

tour is appropriate for ages 8 and up. Reservations can be made by calling Time Pieces Gift Shop at 716679-4818. Tickets are $12.50 each and will include refreshments served in the gazebo at tour's end. For more information check out the website at www.festivalsfredonia. com. Persons interested in volunteering to help out with this event may contact Mary Jane Starks at festivalsfredonia@

leArning is A liFelong eXperienCe Contributed Article SUNY Fredonia Lifelong Learning Lifelong Learning and Special Programs at SUNY Fredonia offers a variety of learning experiences for students as well as community members. Through its Fredonia Academy, Lifelong Learning offers many noncredit learning opportunities. SUNY Fredonia traces its roots to Fredonia Academy, which officially opened in 1826. To honor the college’s beginnings, Lifelong Learning launched a 21st century Academy. Here, faculty and staff share their knowledge and expertise with the college and surrounding communities – much like the Academy’s faculty did so long ago. Through J-Term (January 6-17, 2014) and Summer Sessions (May 19-August 1, 2014), undergraduate and graduate students are offered traditional classroom instruction, online learning, and study abroad experiences.


The Lifelong Learning Credit Program is designed for those who would like to begin (or restart) their college studies on a part-time basis. This program enables individuals to apply to SUNY Fredonia and enroll in regular undergraduate courses for credit.

CArnivAl lovers eXpeCted to FloCk to elliCottville tWO-Day eVent Will likely DraW tens OF thOUsanDs tO the reGiOn By Daniel Meyer Star Contributing Writer The region's oldest and largest community celebration will take place next month just when the foliage of the surrounding hills are ablaze with color when the annual Ellicottville Fall Festival is held. Scheduled for Saturday, October 12 and Sunday, October 13, the weekend will feature tens of thousands of festival goers taking in all of the sights and sounds that comes with eating unique foods, perusing a massive art and craft show, enjoying carnival rides and listening to live musical entertainment. So as temperatures cool and the leaves continue to change color, people from throughout Western New York and beyond are planning their weekend trips to Ellicottville for the annual festival, which regularly attracts attendees from Pennsylvania, Ohio and parts of Canada.

What started in 1975 as a simple event has grown into a can't-miss party destination for many, including many seasonal Ellicottville property owners who come to town to get their chalets ready for the season. Downtown Ellicottville virtually shuts down each year to become a festival and craft haven for Columbus Day weekend as the two main intersections are filled with hundreds of arts and craft vendors, carnival rides and games for the entire family. “This has become a ritual for a lot of people,” said Brian McFadden, Executive Director of the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce. “Not only is it Canada’s Thanksgiving, but many people who live in Canada and own property in Ellicottville designate that weekend as the time to get here and open things up and get ready for winter.” Located approximately 60 miles from Buffalo and roughly the same distance from Canada, Ellicottville becomes the place to be during the weekend celebration that welcomes plenty of nearby Chautauqua County residents

to visit the many shops, restaurants and other business entities that make up Ellicottville's hustling and bustling central business district. The Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce manages this event, with officials saying it is easily their largest festival in terms of total attendance. Ongoing

efforts to keep the massive crowds under control result in making the festival family friendly, especially in the evening hours when many festivalgoers gather to enjoy the various entertainment options that include live performances by a wide variety of musicians. Continued on pAge 8

Questions tHe History oF puMpkinville ABout puMpkins Contributed Article Pumpkinville Pumpkinville enjoys the claim of being the oldest original pumpkin farm in New York State. In fact, research shows it might be the oldest continuously operated pumpkin farm in the United States. In the early 1960s, Joe and Helen Halloran’s teenage sons, Tom and Dan, planted a few pumpkins and people stopped by the roadside to buy them. Over the years, they began adding more pumpkins, displays and buildings to the farm. In 1996, the Pawlowski family took over Pumpkinville making it more of an entertainment destination for families wanting to do something on a fall afternoon. Dan and Diane and their children Lisa and Jim combined their creativity with hard work to grow Pumpkinville into the regional tourist attraction it is today. More than 100,000 people visit Pumpkinville


Contributed Article

Today, Pumpkinville is a 200-acre family-friendly fall entertainment facility. One of its highlights is a cider mill that dates back to the 1870s and was refurbished in 2004. Visitors can enjoy the unique experience of seeing apples squeezed and experience the sights, sounds and aroma of cider making.


Pumpkinville also features a variety of attractions including thousands of pumpkins in the Pumpkin Yard, a Six-Acre Corn Maze, the Pumpkin Jumpin’ Pillows, The Singing Chickens, Pumpkinville Mining Company, Hay Rides, Cow Train, Farm Animals, Storyland, Corn Cannon, Crafts, Di’s Pies & Bake Shop, homemade fudge, pumpkin donuts, the Apple Barn, the Pavilion and much more.

Pumpkins are grown on all continents except Antarctica.

Pumpkinville will have something to interest every member of the family no matter what their age.

The pumpkin is a squash and it is part of the cucurbita family which also includes cucumbers.

Where Can yOU GrOW pUmpkins?

When DO yOU start plantinG pUmpkins?

It depends upon what kind of pumpkin you’d like to grow. Giant pumpkins seeds should be planted indoors between April 25 – May 15 and then move to the outside only after the first leaves form. Seeds for field pumpkins, the kind you use for Jack O’ Lanterns, should be planted indoors from May 15 – June 15 and moved to your garden after two weeks. Miniature pumpkins should be planted indoors from May 25 – July 1 and moved to the garden after two weeks.

hOW DiD pUmpkins OriGinate?

It is believed that people began growing pumpkins in Central America. Seeds dating back to 5,500 B.C. have been found in some areas of Mexico. Research shows that it was a staple in the diets of Native Americans, who introduced it to European settlers.

When Was the First pUmpkin pie maDe? No one really knows when, but it appears that early settlers in America used the pumpkin for the crust. They hollowed out pumpkin shell and filled it with honey and spices and then baked it.

are pUmpkins GOOD FOr yOU?

Pumpkins are very good for you to eat. They contain a lot of Vitamin A and potassium and are high in fiber.

What is the histOry OF the JaCk O' lantern?

The legend goes back hundreds of years in Irish History, but, the original Jack O'Lantern wasn’t a pumpkin. As the tale goes, Stingy Jack was a miserable, old drunk who played tricks on everyone including the Devil himself. Stingy Jack tricked the Devil into climbing up an apple tree and while the Devil was there, Stingy Jack placed crosses around the tree trunk. The Devil couldn’t get down the tree, so Stingy Jack made him promise him not to take his soul when he died. The Devil promised and Stingy Jack removed the crosses. When Stingy Jack died, he went to Heaven, but Saint Peter said he was too mean and too cruel and had led a miserable and worthless life on earth. So Stingy Jack wasn’t allowed into heaven. He then went down to Hell and the Devil kept his promise and would not allow him to enter Hell. Jack had nowhere to go but to wander in the darkness between heaven and hell. He asked the Devil how he could leave with no light, so the Devil tossed him an ember from the flames of Hell to light his way. Jack placed the ember in a hollowed out Turnip, one of his favorite foods which he always carried around with him. For that day onward, Stingy Jack roamed the earth without a resting place, lighting his way as he went with his "Jack O'Lantern". In the 1800's a couple of waves of Irish immigrants came to America. The Irish immigrants quickly discovered that Pumpkins were bigger and easier to carve out. So they used pumpkins for Jack O' Lanterns.

Busti Apple Harvest Festival to Feature Restored Mill Operational Gristmill Forty Years in the Making

Contributed Article The Busti Apple Festival Committee With Contributions by Patricia Pihl, Managing Editor Held the last Sunday in September, The 39th annual Busti Apple Harvest Festival will take place Sunday, September 29, in Busti on the grounds between and around the gristmill and museum. This year for the first time, the festival will feature the 1838 historic mill working, grinding the grain. For 40 years, the Busti Historical Society’s chief goal has been the eventual restoration of the Mill. The historic 1839 mill was finally completed this year and festival-goers will be able to view its operations, with demonstrations held for the first time. The gristmill also has new exhibits and will be open for tours.

After 40 years of renovations, the Busti Mill will be fully operational for demonstrations at the Busti Apple Harvest Festival on September 29. (Photo by Patricia Pihl).

Norman Carlson, charter member of the Busti Historical Society, stated, “we invite everyone to see it (the mill) and how it fit into life in the 19th century.” The monumental task of moving artifacts from the Busti Mill into the new storage barn has been accomplished in preparation for the Apple Festival. The flour dust created by the grinding requires the removal of all the display artifacts that have been shown for years on the first and second floors of the mill. Items too large for display in the museum building had remained in the mill as long as it was not in operation. Now the Society has built a new building behind the recently acquired house that was originally the residence of the early millers. Last Sunday volunteers took 11 truckloads of items across the road from the mill to the new building. Approximately 85 more objects are being moved including some of the heaviest, oldest, and most fragile. This has been done mainly on subsequent weekends along with all the other work of preparing for the 39th annual Apple Harvest Festival. Along with space in the new building, much extra ground

Take an Amish Tour of the Countryside

By Dodi Kingsfield

Amish tours are available as guided or self-guided trips, depending on a visitor’s comfort level or sense of adventure. A typical guided tour requires making reservations in advance (the guides themselves are not Amish) and meeting the guide at a predetermined location where they will join you in your car and guide you and your party through the Amish countryside, sharing their knowledge of the Old Order Amish traditions and community. They will guide you through the rolling countryside to see Amish farms, shop at Amish artisans for goods and even eat Amish food. Personalized Amish tours can be made through the Leon Historical Society (http:\\leonhistoricalsociety.webs. com) or the Randolph Area Community Development Corporation (716-3589701, ext. 208). Carol Lorenc of Amish Flair Tours in Cherry Creek (716-9623412) offers her unique Amish tour that concludes with an Amish style lunch at the Cherry Creek Inn for all participants.
