new yorkers can now shop for comprehensive health plans following implementation of ‘obamacare’

By Daniel Meyer Star Contributing Writer

Despite years of battling on Capitol Hill and the shutdown of the federal government earlier this month, the system of health insurance exchanges created by President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act is open for business. In an effort to assist our readers to better comprehend how the new health law will impact your family, the Chautauqua Star is here to help by providing tips on how to understand what your new coverage options are. We will also tell you where to look for free help to choose a plan and attempt to clear up some common misconceptions about “Obamacare.” First off, here are some basic facts: -The program, which some Republican elected officials in our nation’s capital are still seeking to delay in the ongoing power struggle in Washington that led to the government shutdown earlier this month, was implemented as a way to offer less expensive insurance options than what is currently available on the private marketplace. - All plans in New York must offer at least 10 coverage guarantees that include emergency

services, hospital care, pregnancy/baby care, prescription drugs, laboratory services and access to mental health and addiction treatment facilities. - New York is one of 14 states that will have its own health insurance exchange program following an executive order that was issued by Governor Andrew Cuomo. - As of next year, Medicaid in New York State will be covering more people, including lowincome adults without children who had previously been excluded.

- Anyone under the age of 65 with an income of less than 138 percent of the federal poverty level ($15,856 for an individual and $32,499 for a family of four) will be covered. - If your income ranges from 138 percent to 400 percent of the federal poverty level (up to $45,960 for an individual or $94,200 for a family of four) you may be eligible for financial assistance in purchasing coverage through the exchange. - Subsidies will be sent directly to the insurance company, meaning you will not have to pay money

for services and then wait to be reimbursed at a later date. - The level of financial aid you receive will be based on your income and the size of your family. - Approved 2014 health insurance rates on the exchange will be 53 percent less expensive than what is currently on the market because more people will be entering the insurance pool. After digesting all of those tidbits, remember to keep in mind that as of January 1, most people (there will be some exceptions)


Putt-A-Bit miniature Golf

business closed aFter Four decades, still elicits Fond memories witH locals By Katy Wise

If you are a native of this area, then you might remember PuttA-Bit Miniature Golf, located at the D&F Plaza in Dunkirk. A few weeks ago, we reached out for some ideas of ‘Lost Places’ that we could feature, and there was an overwhelming response from residents and former residents to write about the classic putt-putt course. The locally owned business closed almost a decade ago, but it still brings out many fond memories and was a “go-to” place for family fun back in its day. Mike Laurito, along with his wife, Sue, owned the Putt-A-Bit through its last season of business in 2004. The Lauritos were the fourth owners of the business, and owned it for the lon-

As part of a year-long curriculum of professional development seminars, members of Chautauqua Leadership Network’s Class of 2013 gathered at the Cassadaga Job Corps last month to explore the many ethical issues facing today’s leaders in various industries throughout Chautauqua County. During the half-day “Ethics in Business” session, CLN class members participated in a dialogue with five Chautauqua County leaders — all CLN alumni — who provided an overview of the ethical challenges unique to their respective profession: Jodi

What saddens me is that there are videos online of countless conservatives boasting their opinion “ObamaCare is the end of the free world! Socialism is taking over!” Hardly. Our health care system NEEDS work; it’s corrupt and failing. I’m not for ObamaCare, but I’m not against reform. So what’s wrong with a health care system that becomes available to the whole nation? It’s forced, that’s what. ObamaCare is built on the backs of hardworking men and women who earn a paycheck and provide for their families. With laws that enforce payment or fines, and ultimately dictates that your property can end up in the hands of the government if you don’t pay, it is singlehandedly capable of destroying small businesses and large businesses alike. Putting the care of the people solely into the hands of the government is a dangerous step. With power comes responsibility, and if our government has not shown itself able to handle what responsibility it currently has, then why are we giving it more? Yes, our men, women and children need good, dependable health care. No, it should not cost us $1,200 a month for a family of four to be poorly insured. I pray for guidance for our leaders. I may never know the intensity of running a nation, but likewise, I should not have to pay a fee for choosing to remain uninsured. I can choose not to upgrade to iOS 7, but if I am left with choosing between overpriced insurance and a tax fine that can turn into a lien on my personal property (yes, look it up), what kind of freedom is that?

ePA Announces second opportunity for Public Comments proposed ban on boat sewaGe dumpinG into lake erie Contributed Article EPA

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has reaffirmed its initial determination that there are adequate facilities around Lake Erie for boats to pump out their sewage. The determination will allow the establishment of a “no discharge zone” for 593 square miles of the lake, its tributaries and bays, and 84 miles of shoreline that comprise the New York State portion of the lake. The EPA is providing an opportunity for the public to comment on the boat sewage dumping ban for a second time. The EPA initially made a determination in December 2012 that adequate sewage pump out facilities exist and that the state’s proposal to designate areas of Lake Erie as a “no discharge zone” can go forward. The EPA received significant comments questioning the availability of sewage pump-out facilities, particularly for larger vessels, and the EPA conferred with New York State to gather more information. That information gathering is now complete and the EPA is confirming its original opinion that there are adequate facilities. “Declaring this area of Lake Erie a ‘no discharge zone’ would provide cleaner water for Lake Erie and the people who use the lake,” said Regional Administra-

tor Judith A. Enck. “The EPA and New York State looked carefully at the information and agree that Lake Erie has enough facilities to remove treated waste from all types of vessels and keep it from entering the lake.” A “no-discharge zone” means that boats are completely banned from discharging sewage into the water. Boaters must instead dispose of their sewage at specially-designated pumpout stations. Discharges of sewage from boats can contain harmful levels of pathogens and chemicals such as formaldehyde, phenols and chlorine, which have a negative impact on water quality, pose a risk to people’s health and impair marine life. The EPA is encouraging public comment on its proposed approval until Oct. 28. EPA’s tentative determination is available in the Federal Register at: http:// The proposed no discharge zone for the New York State portion of Lake Erie includes the waters of the lake from the Pennsylvania-New York State boundary, as well as the Upper Niagara River and numerous other tributaries, harbors and bays of the Lake, including Barcelona Harbor, Dunkirk Harbor and the Buffalo Outer Harbor. Lake Erie, its harbors, bays, creeks and wetlands support fish spawning areas and habitat, commercial and recreational boating, and plethora of recreational opportunities.

Music Fills The Soul Of Presbyterian Organist Contributed Article Ann Weidman

Whether it’s a flute, organ, piano, clarinet or organ, Lewis Kocher will play it plus write the music for it. Kocher recently began his musical watch at Westfield First Presbyterian Church, and he already has captured the attention of all who listen to his melodious presentations. “Every Sunday, you’ll hear something I wrote,” he promises, with a look on his face that tells you he’s already thinking of the next Sunday. As choir director, too, Kocher also follows an unusual awareness. “I believe that the choir should be heard and not be overshadowed by the music.” Ergo, when the anthem of the day begins, organ or piano may be heard in the beginning, but softly. And there are times when the keyboard stops so each word and note can be heard. As a music director and musician in our region for more than 20 years, Kocher directs the Celtic Morning prayer services at Hurlbut Community Church during its summer season and is pianist for the United Methodist House, both at Chautauqua Institution. He also is a published composer with ALRY Publications, Inc. and recently completed two commissions for new music. You can even see and hear a woodwind orchestra from Spain performing one of his works on YouTube. Among his many musical talents, Kocher has a yen for history. For instance, he can tell you that the organ is much older than the piano, which was born in 1750. Turning to the grand piano – originally

any questions? Westfield’s First Presbyterian Church organist, Lewis Kocher, takes a minute between hymns to talk about his extraordinary talent and experience as a musician and history enthusiast. The public is invited to attend the Sunday services, which begin at 11 a.m., to listen to exceptional music

called a pianoforte - he discusses what the name really means: “It translates as Soft-Loud, so I’m really playing something called the Soft-Loud,” he chuckles. Once in awhile, he likes to accentuate a particular hymn he plays on piano by setting up an electric keyboard next to it. And, the Presbyterian congregation can look forward to more outstanding presentations if Kocher delivers a hymn with the flute, clarinet, violin - wait, almost anything except the family of brass instruments, which he hasn’t yet fully explored. Kocher also presents concerts in England where he has some family. He has performed his original music for the pipe organ there for several years. Whether

in England or America, he presents all his concerts under the name of “Michael Crowtower” which better suits his concert style of neoclassical/new age music. Looking to the future, he plans something special for Advent and Christmas at First Presbyterian, which happens to be the first church to be founded in Chautauqua County. “One little surprise is that the concerts I have been doing in England, I’ll premier in the U.S. in this church, too,” he says with a smile. What he really would like is to expand the choir, which is an invitation for people in Westfield and surrounding communities to join and experience special enticing music, all arranged or written by Lewis

Kocher, alias Michael Crowtower. Kocher also encourages parents to become acquainted with music at church, not just for themselves, but also for their children who would like to join a choir of their own. Should anyone like to contact Kocher, do so via his website, www.crowtower. com. The congregation of Westfield’s First Presbyterian Church cordially invites all to visit some Sunday when the service begins at 11 a.m. Please note that because of special work being done, visitors are asked to enter the side door on S. Portage Street, across from the library.

RELIGION SECTION Keeping the Faith

Rev. Michael Lokietek Family Church Fredonia

Dear Pastor, does God care about material things? Part 2 Last week, we saw that God created material things for purposes of good. If they were inherently evil or harmful, God would not have created them. The Bible also tells us that it is not the “thing� itself, but rather our attitude about material things that should be our focus. Money is not the root of all evil but the LOVE of money, to the exclusion of loving and serving God, is! The Bible tells us in Matthew 6:32-33 to keep our focus off daily-living worries, “These things dominate the thoughts of unbe-

lievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. (33) Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.� So, can a person have ample money and possessions and still love and serve God?� Absolutely yes! Did you know that the Bible is fi lled with examples of individuals who were wealthy and served God whole-heartily? It’s an amazing testimony to God’s love that these individuals were blessed with vast amounts of material things. Yet God doesn’t want us to love

the “blessings� more than the “bless-or.� The Bible warns us in (1 Tim 6:17), “Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high-minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. �The Bible says to those wealthy Christians that they should not be prideful or put their trust in money. Notice that God didn’t say that it was wrong to be wealthy. In the preceding verse, God said that He gives us “richly� all things to enjoy! This concept of money is not what is typically understood or taught by most

religious institutions. If we can get a hold of this truth concerning material things, it will really set us free ( John 8:32). Some well-intentioned people resist the concept of wealth by indicating that Jesus told us that “it is more blessed to give than to receive� (Acts 20:35).It is also true that the Bible exhorts us to give to the poor (Gal 2:10).But how can we give anything if we don’t have anything ourselves? God’s intention for money is that it be used for His purposes and blessings. Money is to be our servant and is never to become our master.

the weekly word

Rev. Tim Stahlman Family Church Jamestown

the increase of God Part 3 A man’s character can only run as deep as the things he is devoted to. We are living in a time where devotion to shallow things is in abundance and faithfulness towards eternal matters is in short supply. People are seeking life from things that cannot produce true life. This is a trademark for the last days. 2 Timothy 3:1-4 says, “Know this that in the last days perilous times shall come for men shall be lovers of themselves‌lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.â€? As people become more and more devoted to themselves sorrow will be added to them. Many are attempting to fi ll the void in their hearts with devices that cannot bear that load. Only a life devo-

tion to Jesus Christ can bridge that void and create the abundant life you are looking for. Jesus said in Luke 16:10, “He that is FAITHFUL in that which is least is also FAITHFUL in much‌â€? There is no lack of devotion in our society today. People are devoted to hobbies, sports, money, work, and godless entertainment. They are so devoted to such things that a relationship with God barely registers on the spiritual radar. These things have only temporal glory. Their ability to produce life is offset by the stress it takes to maintain such things. See, the fact is that people DO know how to be devoted; they just have their devotion invested in the wrong places. The devotion that Jesus spoke of

runs deep and is where power is located. Take the land for example. You can make a living on the surface of the land. You can grow crops and raise animals for yourself and see a marginal living fi lled will endless toil. But there are those that dig deep into the land and discover deposits of power. Gas and oil deposits are valuable and produce light and energy for you and those around you. It is the same in a relationship with the Lord. Many people are happy to have a “surface� relationship with Him. But those that dig deep find investments of God’s Glory. Faithfulness is your digging tool. Devotion to the things of the Lord will discover the unsearchable riches of Christ. When you speak to your spouse with gentle words

and hold back the harsh criticism in order to please the Lord you are now digging. When you bring your tithe and give offerings to your local church out of the motive to be faithful instead of rich you are digging. When you honor your boss as if he or she is Jesus Himself you are digging. When there is no such hobby or entertainment that can pull you away from a church service you are digging. When you study the Word of God just to know Him more you are digging. When you close yourself in and lift your hands to God and worship in prayer time you are digging. Sooner or later you will hit a gusher. Faithfulness is a virtue of the heart. Increase apart from faithfulness is an idol.

SENIOR SECTION Can Video Games Keep you Vital? By Diana Rodriguez

Daily exercise, a healthy diet, and taking care of your body are all important elements of senior health. But don’t forget to take care of your brain, too. . What Studies Say About the Benefits of Video games Several recent studies have examined video games as a new way to challenge the brain, keep it young, and promote healthy aging. Though often labeled bad for children’s health because it takes time away from exercise and other physical activity, researchers have found that video games can actually be good for senior health. One study, presented at the Gerontological Society of America’s Annual Scientific Meeting, found that seniors who played Nintendo Wii for an hour a week reported higher positive mood and fewer feelings of loneliness than seniors who watched television for the

same amount of time. Another study, from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, concluded that one-third of participants who played an exercise game on the Wii reported a 50 percent or greater reduction in depressive symptoms. Video Games to Play A variety of games, with different speeds, skills, and rules are good for healthy aging, as they use different parts of the brain and body. One particular study found that the Nintendo Wii system offers a wide variety of games to benefit seniors. There are sports games, like Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort, that require a good deal of spatial skills and some physical ability. For fitness video games, there’s the Wii Fit, a fun way to get exercise and perfect for seniors who may just be getting off the couch — you can do yoga and other exercises to improve balance, all while standing in front of your TV.

EA Active is another fitness video game that can help seniors get physically active while stimulating their brains. Strategy games are good for brain stimulation — one North Carolina State University study had participants play Rise of Nations, a strategy-based computer game, and found that seniors who played it showed improved cognitive function and memory. The skills that are enhanced through video games can help seniors with many daily activities that they may start to struggle with as they age, such as managing multiple tasks, doing simple planning, solving problems, and retaining memory. Cognitive function often becomes impaired or begins to decline as we age, and researchers think it’s because the connections between your brain cells are changing. But keeping your mind engaged, stimulated, and active can help improve brain health. One way to do that, researchers

say, is with video games. Mental Activities for Healthy Aging If video games aren’t your cup of tea, experts also recommend these activities to

promote a sharp, engaged brain: • Testing your memory with games and exercises • Doing daily crossword, Sudoku, or similar puzzles

• Taking a class just for fun at a local community college to learn something new

History of Chautauqua Fire Dept. Focus of Next CCHS Lecture Contributed Article CCHS

The Chautauqua County Historical Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final program of 2013 will take place on the grounds of historic Chautauqua Institution. On Saturday, Oct. 19, Chautauqua Volunteer Fire Department (CVFD) Chief Mark Powers will give a presentation on the history of the fire department. One of the most unique communities in all New York State, Chautauqua Institution rests on 2070 acres of land next to Chautauqua Lake and features wooden housing and other structures that are more than a hundred years old, bunched tightly together along narrow, winding streets. This layout has posed some interesting challenges for

the local fire department and a portion of Powersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; presentation will focus on the history of CVFD and how it has developed a strategy over the decades to address some of those challenges while responding to fire calls at Chautauqua. Chief Powers is also the grandson of James T. Powers, who was named CVFD Fire Chief in 1911. Learn his interesting history as told by Powers, named Fire Chief in 2011, exactly 100 years after his grandfather held the title. The event will also feature a 15-minute illustrated presentation of the CVFD, a tour of the fire station and its in-house museum.

Is it time to schedule your annual mammogram? The Center For Imaging & Medical Arts At WCA Hospital provides state-ofthe-art digital mammography exams. At some point in a woman’s life, one out of eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, in 2011, an estimated 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among women, as well as an estimated 57,650 additional cases of in situ breast cancer. Approximately 39,520 women are expected to die from breast cancer—the second leading cause of deaths in women. What is breast cancer? Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that starts in the cells of the breast. A malignant tumor is a group of cancer cells that can grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. The disease occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get it too. What are the signs and symptoms of breast cancer?

Breast cancer typically produces no symptoms when the tumor is small and most treatable. Therefore, it is very important for women to follow recommended screening guidelines for detecting breast cancer at an early stage, before symptoms develop. When breast cancer has grown to a size that can be felt, the most common physical sign is a painless lump. Sometimes breast cancer can spread to underarm lymph nodes and cause a lump or swelling. Less common signs and symptoms include breast pain or heaviness; persistent changes to the breast, such as swelling, thickening, or redness of the breast’s skin; and nipple abnormalities such as spontaneous discharge, erosion, inversion, or tenderness. Any persistent abnormality in the breast should be evaluated by a physician as soon as possible! What are the risks factors for breast cancer? Being a woman . . . Just being a woman is the biggest risk factor for developing breast cancer. Age . . .your risk of breast cancer increases as you get older. Approximately two out of three invasive breast cancers occur in women age 55 or older. Family history . . . Approximately five percent to 10 percent of breast cancers are though to be hereditary, caused by abnormal genes passed from parent

to child. Personal history of breast cancer . . . If you’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer, you’re 3 to 4 times more likely to develop a new cancer in the other breast or a different part of the same breast. Race/Ethnicity . . . White women are slightly more likely to develop breast cancer than African American, Hispanic, and Asian women. However, African women are more likely to develop more aggressive, more advanced stage cancer. Being overweight . . . Overweight and obese women have a higher risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer compared to women who maintain a healthy weight, especially after menopause. Being overweight also can increase the risk of breast cancer reoccurring in women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Drinking alcohol . . .Research consistently shows that drinking alcoholic beverages—beer, wine, and liquor—increases a woman’s risk of hormonereceptor-positive breast cancer. Other risk factors include, having dense breasts, lack of exercise, smoking, and low Vitamin D levels. How can you reduce your risk of breast cancer? Every woman wants to know what she can do to

the other side. By examining our own breasts on a monthly basis, a woman learns what is normal for her body and can easily identify when something is wrong or different. It may be normal to have lumpy breasts, but unless a person is aware of that, they can easily become alarmed if they felt a benign lump or a cyst and were not aware it was always there. But if the lumps change or there is a difference between the breasts that wasn’t there before, a physician should be notified immediately so that the abnormalities can be investigated and confirmed or denied as cancer. Ultimately, breast cancer is the reason for performing self breast examinations. No one wants cancer, and breast cancer is the leading cancer type in women, second to lung cancer. It can strike men or women, but is more common in females. Breast cancer occurs in the milk ducts or milk glands and can be invasive to the surrounding breast tissue.

According to the National Cancer Institute, self-examinations have had little to no effect on reducing breast cancer mortality, unlike mammography that has reduced the rate by 15 to 20%.

It is estimated that at least 235,000 men and women in the United Sates will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year alone and 40,000 will die from breast cancer. As a result of these staggering statistics, health organizations stress the use of screening techniques to detect breast cancer early

Surprisingly enough, the breast self examination is no longer considered to be one of those screening techniques, at least not for the general population. According to a recent National Cancer Institute study, self breast examinations have had no significant impact on reducing

the mortality rate of people that die from breast cancer while the use of mammograms as a detection method has lowered the rate by 15 to 20%. The World Health Organization also agrees with this conclusion, going so far as ContinueD on PG 7

around the world pick up litter on beaches or shore lines and record it on data sheets. The information is then compiled to give the Center for Marine Conservation a comprehensive picture of the types of litter that are being thrown into water ways. In the pouring rain, there was no chance to mark the tally sheets and record the various types of litter. So Bill and Diane saved their collection and asked a class from the Resource Center to do the tally work for them.

This photo shows the amount of litter picked up on the Barcelona Beach on Saturday morning, Sept. 21

The trash was spread out on a tarp and the eager members did a fine job of identifying, sorting and recording the accumulated pile of litter. Barb Zeigler specialized in caps and lids and found 31. Jose Reyes found a total of 47 cigar tips and 32 cigarette fi lters. Tony Gugino cheered the group on and was impressed by the five different articles of clothing found. Anthony Corcoran was surprised by at least two hundred bits and pieces of plastic recovered from the beach.

Courtney Ruch compiled the numbers on the tally sheet. Karl Erb, Resource Center personal, was dismayed to see 17 remains of balloons, the most dangerous items to birds and acquatic wild life. Diane Clark of Greystone Nature Preserve offered the activity as an experiential, environmental lesson. The Resource Center team did an excellent and enthusiastic job and are hoping their work will impress citizens to not use our lakes, streams and beaches as personal trash cans.

If you don’t like saving money, then you probably won’t enjoy this article. Recently, I decided to make sure we were well prepared for next summer as far as clothing for our boys goes. I have always been someone who enjoys being prepared, so having our clothing lined up ahead of time (and not having to buy at the last minute) is a big deal to me. I told my mom about my decision, and being the avid sales shopper that she is, she agreed that this was a good idea and wanted to join me.

email for the best coupon combinations. I had a goal of at least three pairs of shorts and five shirts for each of the boys, plus a couple of rompers for my littlest man. I set a budget of approximately $100 for everything, but an anonymous grandparent helped out anyways. Along with all of this knowledge, I kept my expectation level high, saying and believing that we were going to get awesome deals, purchase everything we needed while remaining in budget, and that we had favor throughout our trip. Although this may sound completely irrelevant to adorable baby clothing, I promise you that the two go hand in hand. God cares about my family’s finances, our needs, and the desires of my heart. Scriptures tell us that whatever we confess with our mouth, we will have if we do not doubt in our heart. This is the exciting part, the part that makes every bargain-shopping woman get butterfl ies in her stomach. If you have no idea what I am talking about, I am deeply sorry. Below is a picture of our purchases, but keep in mind these are just the summer clothes. Even if I wanted to take a picture with everything that we bought, it simply doesn’t fit on our couch. With all of the coupons used, we were also able to snag some great things for this year’s fall and winter season, including $20 off of a trendy winter coat for our toddler. We came in under budget, and averaged out to under $2 per item. Andrew, our youngest, got five t-shirts, four polos, two rompers, six pairs of shorts, one fleece outfit for this year, and an elephant lovey that stowed away when the husband wasn’t looking (just kidding, he agreed that it was too adorable to not come live with us). For Joshua, we purchased two tank tops, eight t-shirts, three polos, one dress shirt, five pairs of shorts, one pair of jeans and seven pairs of socks. That’s a whole lot of brand new clothes for around $80. Altogether, there are 46 items, all from quality children’s clothing stores like ‘Carter’s’ and ‘The Children’s Place.’ I hope that any unbelievers now understand why I coupon. May this column inspire you to have fun saving money. Happy Shopping!

Most recently, JSBA was featured on NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national telecast of the Progressive Skating & Gymnastics Spectacular, which was recorded at the Arena last December. The Jamestown Arena is also home to the Jamestown Ironmen, who compete in the North American Hockey League. JSBA has also broadened its horizons with the addition of turf sports to its programming along with a free outdoor concert series throughout the summer. The Arena seeks to move forward with new ideas, an expanded selection of programming and entertainment, but still prides itself on being a community center for Jamestownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth and families alike.

cal schools, the SBHCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medical staff can give yearly physicals, administer vaccinations and prescribe medications. School Based Health Centers are equipped with a nurse practitioner and a medical assistant, with oversight provided by a physician. The JHS SBHC requires parents to enroll their child into the program, but there is no out-of-pocket expense to do so. There are also plans to add preventive dental services to both local SBHCs via a grant The Resource Center will be receiving from the Health Services and Resources Administration. SBHCs across the nation are prevention focused, working to stop or catch a condition early, before it gets too costly or does more damage.

JHS Junior Wins Best High School Fredonia Alumnus Tony Caramia Returns for ‘Dancing Keys’ Recital Film Award Contributed Article

Contributed Article

SUNY Fredonia


Jamestown High School Junior, Nigel Eastman, won the Best High School Film award at the 2013 Boonies International Film Festival in Warren, Pa. His short film, Jiffy, was screened at the Warren Public Library and the Struthers Library Theatre during the festival. He also participated in a question and answer session about the Insomniac Competitive Film Festival for which the short was originally created, and awarded, “best soundtrack.” Eastman, who plans to major in film making in college, was previously awarded third place for his short, Common Sense, at the Western New York Media Art Show held at the University of Buffalo and attended the New York State Summer School for the Arts at SUNY Oswego.

He attended Jamestown High School’s Videoworks

program in his freshman and sophomore years.

Tony Caramia, professor of Piano at the Eastman School of Music and a SUNY Fredonia graduate, will return to campus to present the recital “Dancing Keys” on Thursday, Oct. 10, at 6 p.m., at Rosch Recital Hall. The following evening, Caramia will play in a reunion concert of the 1970s Fredonia Jazz Ensemble. Both events are free and open to the public. In the first part of the recital, Caramia offers music inspired by dance for solo piano, while selections by two jazz greats who have recently passed away are featured later in the program. Caramia will perform a tango, a fox-trot and a dance-inspired selection by American composer/ musician/lyricist Dana Suesse, who was known as “the girl Gershwin,” along with selections by French composer Darius Milhaud and legendary jazz pianist/ composer Dave Brubeck. A waltz medley featuring compositions by Chick Corea, Bill Evans, Mary Lou Williams, Ron Carter and Caramia precedes a short musical tribute to Marian McPartland and Brubeck that concludes the recital. Caramia had the great fortune to play an improvisation of Duke Ellington’s “In a Mellotone” with McPartland on her “Piano Jazz” program on NPR in 2003. “Audiences seem to react favorably and excitedly to the unusual selection of pieces and the diversity of compositional styles, as well as to the integration of composed pieces along with improvised sounds, in the jazz waltzes,” Caramia

said. Theme recitals have been a focus of Caramia, who plays both classical and jazz music, for two decades. “I have long been interested in being as creative in the selection of pieces for a recital as I have in the performance of them,” he said. Caramia performed this recital, or versions of it, at the Dakota Sky International Piano Festival, where he was a guest artist and teacher, the National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy and at Eastman’s Faculty Artist Series in early September. SUNY Fredonia Piano professor Linda Phillips heard “Dancing Keys” at Eastman and said it was outstanding, well-thought out, well-played and wellattended. Three pieces by classical composer Milhaud were followed by two Brubeck pieces because Brubeck studied composition with Milhaud. “This is an example of how he interconnects and thinks through his programming,” Phillips said. At Eastman, Caramia serves as director of Piano Pedagogy Studies and coordinator of the Classical Piano Program. He is a frequent presenter at national and international workshops and a lecturer, judge and clinician. Caramia released, “Tribute,” a CD featuring music of Ellington, McPartland and Brubeck, along with original compositions, in 2006. Caramia has served as a judge for the American Jazz Piano Competition, the Crescendo Music Awards and the Young Texas Artists Competition and is a contributing editor for Clavier Companion Magazine and serves on the Editorial Committee of American Music Teacher.

Recent solo piano publications include: “Shoo-fly Shuffle,” “American Treasures,” “Suite Dreams” and “Jazz Moods.” He has conducted numerous workshops in jazz piano for teachers at Music Teachers National Association national and state conventions, the International Association for Jazz Educators Teacher Training Institutes and the National Piano Teachers Institute. For the Fredonia Jazz Ensemble reunion concert on Friday, Oct. 11, at 8 p.m., also at Rosch, Caramia will play Brubeck’s “It’s a Raggy Waltz” as a soloist and join trumpet player John Maguda, who was a part of the FJE and is now a member of the School of Music faculty, on “Body and Soul.” A 1973 graduate of SUNY Fredonia, Caramia studied under Claudette Sorel, a renowned concert pianist and teacher who was head of the piano area at the School of Music for 13 years. He returned to campus to perform at the dedication concert of the new Sorel Steinway in 2007 and, in 2008, in the Guest Artist Recital series. SUNY Fredonia honored Caramia with an Outstanding Achievement Award in 2010. “I was indeed very fortunate to attend Fredonia, where I learned a great deal about performing and teaching the piano,” Caramia said. “I am thrilled to be returning, especially to perform with some of my colleagues and classmates from the ’70s on Friday evening as part of the ’70s Reunion Jazz Ensemble.”

The penalty will start at $95 or 1 percent of your income (whichever is higher) and will be phased in over time to $695, or 2.5 percent of your income, by

2016. If you are currently uninsured or are seeking to replace the coverage you have, you can start to compare and shop for comprehensive health plans on New York State’s official marketplace at, a web

site which actually crashed from heavy use the very first day it went live due to heavy usage by millions of people wanting to explore their options. The web site allows New Yorkers to choose from 16 different health insurance plans and 10 different

dental plan options under the program that began Oct. 1 despite the federal government’s shutdown. That web site is expected to serve as the main source for the state’s approximate 2.7 million residents currently uninsured who need to sign up for health coverage

Lost places, continued from pg 1 “We just tried to maintain [the original course],” said Mike. “Couples who had visited while dating would come back with their families, and remember what things were like.” With a focus of keeping the original features usable, one of the most common areas of upkeep was replacing that familiar green carpet. With so much time, money and emotion invested in the business, it was bittersweet when it came to a close in 2004. “Miniature golf just wasn’t a priority. People lost interest as other things developed in the community,” Mike said. “But without my family and friends, I couldn’t have done it.” The course, throughout most of its life, was a staple of the Dunkirk/Fredonia community. Jeanette Nichols Rabideau, who grew up in the area, remembers playing on the course. “We loved putt-a-bit for

sure! The kangaroo’s pouch and the twirling seal balancing a striped ball on its nose... I miss that place.” Many others responded to a Facebook post with fond memories, recalling the fun animal themed holes that attracted guests. Putt-a-Bit appealed to many different audiences, mainly because it was such an inexpensive pastime that allowed people to enjoy the good weather during its late spring and summer seasons. Not only families living in the area, but also those that would return to visit the lake every summer frequented the Lauritos’ little spot in the plaza. It was a hit with schools as well, with local classes of young children going on end-of-the-year field trips. Among all these guests, those attending a show at the movie theatre next door (a future Lost Places…) would sometimes wander

over after the show, or if a show was sold out. “We had kids come in wearing their prom dresses, senior citizen groups, and one time a wedding party came for their rehearsal,” Mike remembers, “It was a family oriented thing. Good family fun that was affordable even up to a

couple times a week, then go out for ice cream.” Mike enjoyed nearly all the aspects of owning the course, but his favorite was “the chance to meet new people. I felt like it provided something for our community, something for families to enjoy.” Putt-A-Bit was a business

that truly had family fun in mind. When Mike and Sue’s children were old enough, they also took part in it. “When my kids grew up,” recalls Mike, “they put their time in too. It taught them responsibility.” While the loop-de-loop, windmill and clown’s

mouth (which of course won you a free game if you got a hole-in-one) are no longer around, Putt-A-Bit still lives on in hearts and memories of former puttputters.

Following brief presentations, panel members introduced a real-life ethical dilemma in their field as a case study. Class members then deliberated each case study and presented a resolution to the prob-

They estimate that in 2013 about 232, 340 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women and about 39,620 women will die from breast cancer in 2013. Lee National Denim Day is proud to continue to support the American Cancer Society. Denim Day is committed to improving the everyday lives of those with breast cancer

- past, present and future. Through the event a simple gesture turns into extraordinary support by funding lifesaving screenings in communities nationwide, providing hope and care to those traveling away from home for cancer treatment, and investing in groundbreaking cancer research. “Lee National Denim Day is great way to offer a causal Friday and create something much

bigger,” said Gregory J. Edwards, Chautauqua County Executive. “There are more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States and by letting employees wear jeans to work one day in exchange for a donation it will help fight breast cancer and continue to give hope to everyone who is or has been diagnosed with breast cancer, a cause that is very important to me and many

of our employees.” “We are more grateful every year at the number of organizations like Chautauqua County, who come together across the country and donate to make this grassroots program a continued success,” said Liz Cahill, Vice President of Marketing Communications for Lee Jeans. “This year as we celebrate our 18th anniversary, we’d like to thank all the companies

and people across the nation that have participated in Lee National Denim Day and helped us raise more than $89 million in the fight against breast cancer.” To learn more about the exciting projects funded by Denim Day, visit About Lee Jeans Lee Jeans is a division of VF Corporation. (NYSE:

thy said in the understatement of the year. “The defense has to pick and chose who they’re going to try to take away. Da’Quon (Hollingsworth) has 1,300 yards last year so he’s capable of taking over a game, too.” Hollingsworth has certainly played a major role in this juggernaut offense in Jamestown. The senior running back gained 113 yards on just 14 carries in the opening win and ran in three scores in the win over South Park in Week 3. As unstoppable as Jamestown has looked thus far, Langworthy knows that Class AA still features some very talented teams that are capable of knocking off the Red Raiders even before they reach Ralph Wilson Stadium for the Section 6 championshp game.

They were expected to win and they did. But it was their next two games against Salamanca and Southwestern, two teams considered in the upper echelon on the league, that had the potential to defi ne their season. Consider that test passed with flying colors. Fredonia (4-0 overall, 4-0 Class C South) took care of business at the Orange Bowl with consecutive wins over its rivals and now stands in great shape to finish the regular season undefeated.

Falconer A Team On The Offensive Balance Is Key For Streaking Wildcats Rise In Class C South By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

By Stefan Gestwicki Star Sports Editor

Falconer Golden Falcons

Head Coach: Dan Krenzer Seniors: A.J. DiMaio, Cole Staurt, Nathan Burnett, Jimmy Schwab, Tyler Walker, Cody Dustin, Cory Cardone, Jummy McDonald, Kyle Peterson, Jacob Youngberg, Kyle Ross, Jacob Stinson, Drew Irwin, Ryan Lank. Juniors: Jake Penhallow, L.J. Spangenberg, DaShawn Jackson, Tareek Hannold, Ryan Dustin, Aaron Mee, Drew Beckerink.

2013 Schedule

9/6 vs. Salamanca (Loss 12-0) 9/13 vs. Fredonia (Loss 42-6) 9/20 at Allegany-Limestone (Win 45-28) 9/27 at Silver Creek-Forestville (Win 28-14) 10/4 vs. Gowanda 10/11 vs. Portville 10/18 at Southwestern Coming off a season in which they went just 1-7 and having just three wins over their past two seasons, you could excuse anyone who tempered expectations when it came to the 2013 Falconer Golden Falcons. Then came an 0-2 start and this season appeared to be going in the direction of the last two. But suddenly Falconer has won two games in a row with a resurgent offense, a bend-but-don’t-break defense and a never-giveup attitude. The schedule-makers didn’t do Falconer any favors despite opening the season with a pair of home games. Those two home games had the Golden Falcons up against preseason Class C South favorites Salamanca and Fredonia, respectively. Falconer gave Salamanca all it could handle in a 12-0 loss. The Golden Falcons were in the Warriors’ red zone twice, but were unable to score. If they had converted on both of those opportunities there would be a surprising 3-1 team residing in Falconer. The defense wasn’t able to keep things quite as close against the Hillbillies in Week 2 as Fredonia rolled to a 42-6 win against an overmatched Falconer squad. Fredonia scored four times in the first quarter and led 28-0 before that first horn sounded. The promising part of their second game was that the

Golden Falcons offense was able to find the end zone against a stout Fredonia defense and moved the ball down the field on a handful of drives. Jacob Youngberg picked up 87 yards on the ground while DaShawn Jackson took the ball into the end zone from 5 yards out. A sensational day from running back Cody Dustin helped Falconer to its first win of the season in Week 3 against host Allegany-Limestone. The senior running back picked up 376 yards on the ground and scored five touchdowns as Falconer rolled to a 45-28 win. Dustin was a workhorse with 38 carries in the game as he nearly bested Curt Jones’ 2004 school record of 391 yards. The surprising thing about this game was that even with the huge offensive output from the backfield, Falconer still trailed 21-18 at halftime. It took a huge scoring second half for the Golden Falcons to clinch the win. Perhaps Silver CreekForestville didn’t watch any tape of that 376-yard performance by Dustin because Falconer’s Week 4 opponent had no answers when it came to stopping the senior running back. Dustin ripped off another 379 yards — including a pair of 80-yard touchdown runs — as the Golden Falcons rolled to a 28-14 win in Silver Creek. On the first play of the game, Dustin took the ball 80 yards to the house for the first of his four scores on the game. That set a precedence for the evening as he also scored from 40 and 35 yards out to go with his two 80-yarders. Falconer is now a team oozing with confidence after a pair of convincing wins. Of course the offense will continue to be run through Dustin, but DaShawn Jackson comes in to spell Dustin and is every bit as capable of taking the ball to the house at any given moment. Falconer will host a struggling Gowanda team this coming week in what is its 2013 homecoming game. More season highlights: Jake Youngberg tallied 15 tackles in Week 3’s win; Ryan Dustin scored on a 1-yard plunge and also threw a 17-yard score in Week 3; The Falconer defense forced a turnover on downs against Silver Creek-Forestville after the Black Knights marched down to the 5-yard line.

Head Coach: Bob Krenzer Seniors: Andrew Graham, Ryan Robson, Devon Moorhead, John Luden, Trevor Gleason, Chris Greiner, Dylan Scouten, Joe Spacht, Jon Spacht, Jake Toy, Corie Alger and Nick Eades. Juniors: Ethan Lyon, Austin Coutrney, Jeremy Cole, Brandon VanCuren, Nate Ottaway, Skylar Beatman, Jake Card, Nate Abata and Kenny Smith. Sophomores: James Miller, Trent Meeder, Jared Bates, Devon VanCuren, Alex Foti and Sam VanVolkenberg. Freshman: Korey Ayers.

2013 Schedule

9/6 at Franklinville (Win 12-0) 9/13 at Clymer (Win 28-0) 9/21 vs. Cattaraugus-Little Valley (Win 38-8) 9/26 vs. Pine Valley (Win 32-6) 10/4 at Frewsburg 10/11 at Nichols 10/18 vs. Panama The undefeated Sherman Wildcats have looked about as good as any team in Class DD this season, outscoring their opponents by a combined score of 110-14. That includes back-to-back shutouts against Franklinville and Clymer to open the season. But coach Bob Krenzer has been at coaching thing for long enough that he knows that his team hasn’t really won anything yet, especially with Frewsburg looming on the schedule. “This game against Frewsburg is a huge game for the league,” he noted. “It sees whether the rest of the league can compete with them, being a bigger school. We’ll find out. We’d like to think we can com-

pete with them. We also like the underdog role.” It’s not a given that Sherman would be any kind of an underdog with how the Wildcats have played this year. In Week 1, Devin Moorhead rushed for 102 on 16 carries as Sherman’s offense scored both its touchdowns in the second half after a scoreless first half for both teams. Korey Ayers found paydirt on a 6-yard run and quarterback Andrew Graham hooked up with Dylan Scouten for a 14-yard touchdown for the Wildcats’ other score. Sherman really took it to rival Clymer in Week 2 with a 28-0 win. It was a win marked by dynamic play from the Wildcat defensive line as it harassed the Pirates ball carriers all game. Graham provided the biggest highlight of the game when he escaped pressure and took off on an 82-yard touchdown run that put Sherman up 14-0. Graham also threw for a pair of scores in the game as the visitors had no trouble on either side of the ball. “We have pretty good bal-

ance,” Krenzer said of his team. “We have confidence on both sides of the bal. The kids give you everything they’ve got. Our receivers can catch has well as any team I’ve seen. Our running backs are really good, too. I don’t know if we can combine all of that into a great season or not. We’ll find out.” Their next game against Cattaraugus-Little Valley was one that Krenzer was admittedly nervous about as CLV is a much larger school than Sherman. As it turns out, size isn’t everything as the Wildcats ran wild in a 38-8 blowout. The one score was the first points that Sherman allowed all season. It was again Moorhead leading the charge with 139 yards on 23 carries while finding the end zone twice. Graham added 89 yards on 11 carries with two touchdowns of his own. A Week 4 matchup with Pine Valley saw something not seen all season — the Wildcats playing from behind. The Panthers scored first, but Graham responded with a 50-yard

touchdown run on the next possession for Sherman. A Moorhead 12-yard score not long after gave the Wildcats a 16-6 lead and they didn’t look back in winning 32-6. The game featured Krenzer coaching against a former player of his, new Pine Valley head coach Erich Zollinger. “Erich was one of the most dedicated, hard-working players I’ve ever had,” Krenzer said of Zollinger. “I wish him all the luck in the world.” The Wildcats’ game this week at Frewsburg is one that’s been circled on the calendar for a while. It’ll provide a big measuring stick for Sherman. “Every game is a big game,” Krenzer commented. More season highlights: Nick Eades recorded six tackles and a pair of sacks in the Week 1 win; Moorhead grabbed a pair of interceptions and added 10 tackles in Week 2 while Scouten also had 10 tackles and an interception in that game; Jon Spacht racked up a dozen tackles in a Week 3 win.

Eri Schutt of 16 and 15 yards, respectively. Enlow added 47 yards on seven carries on the ground. But instead of stewing about being handed their first loss of the season, the Panthers went right back out and put a 34-8 hurting on Pine Valley at home in Week 3. Craig Shelton was the work horse in this game as he gained 182 yards on 21 carries. While Shelton was getting the majority of the yards, it was Enlow who showed off his nose for the end zone with 90 yards on 17 chances and three trips across the goal line. Again the quarterback Payne wasn’t asked to do too much, but was still very effective as he went 7-of-10 for 86 yards and a touchdown. Panama lost the shutout last in the game when Mike Isula was able to punch the ball into the end zone for Pine Valley. Week 4 featured one of the more anticipated games of Class DD this season as the 2-1 Panthers hosted the 2-1 Frewsburg Bears. After falling behind 12-0 at halftime, the Panthers methodically chipped away

until eventually they had scored 20 consecutive points and earned a 20-12 win. In fact, the game was even closer than the score as Enlow plowed into the end zone from 8 yards out with just 45 seconds remaining in the game. With that insurance score in hand, the Panthers improved their record to 3-1. Jacob Short was an animal for the Panama defense with 17 tackles and a sack. Dylan Bergman added nine tackles as the Panthers kept Frewsburg off the scoreboard for the final two-anda-half quarters of play. Panama hosts its final home game of the regular season when they host the unpredictable Cassadaga Valley Cougars this week. The Panthers then go on the road to play Franklinville and Sherman to close out the regular season schedule. More season highlights: Bryce Payne threw a touchdown and ran for another in Week 4; Ricky Eddy rushed for a 19-yard touchdown in Week 3; Jacob Short and Dylan Bergman each had 12 tackles in the Week 3 win.

dunkirk marauders

Head Coach: Tim Majka

2013 Schedule

9/6 at Alden (Loss 32-7) 9/13 at Springville (Loss 7-6) 9/20 vs. Pioneer (Loss 35-6) 9/27 vs. Olean (Loss 35-21) 10/4 vs. Depew 10/11 at East Aurora 10/18 vs. Fredonia After a one-year hiatus from coaching, Tim Majka is back roaming the Dunkirk sidelines in 2013. While the Marauders (0-4 overall, 0-3 Class B South) have yet to get that first win of the season, the intensity Majka brings to the team is evident on every snap – an intensity that the coach never lost even during his time away from the game. “Quite honestly it never left me,” he said. “There were times last Fall where I was walking around my house and I didn’t know what to do with myself. I talk to the kids in school all the time. I was in constant contact with (assistant coaches) Mario Muscerella and Jim Quinn, who were still on the staff last year. It was a sounding board with them because I wanted to keep my finger on the pulse of it. There was no rust. To use the old cliché it’s like riding a bike. It’s always there.” The schedule makers did the Marauders no favors as the Maroon and White opened on the road the first two weeks of 2013 against the two teams that played each other at Ralph Wilson Stadium last year – Alden and Springville. The first game was ugly as Alden ran away with it 32-7, but Dunkirk gave Springville

all it could handle in a narrow 7-6 defeat. “It’s always tough opening on the road,” Majka admitted. “They were long trips to boot. “But we get three in a row at home so we can hopefully gather ourselves.” Despite the struggle to get wins, the Marauders have had a number of players that have stepped up this season. “Nick Barlette had a little bit of a thigh injury in Week 1 so he wasn’t a full go,” Majka said. “Nick Bomasuto runs the ball hard so we came into the season thinking thuner and lightning with those two switching them in and out. Our quarterback ( Josh Goodwin) is a junior so we knew there would be growing pains there but we knew we could rely on our running game. “Lucas Lugan has been phenomenal on both sides of the ball,” Majka continued. “Coming into the season we earmarked him to play tight end. We asked him to sacrifice and move to center. He’s there and makes all of our line calls. He plays defensive end, too. Springville stopped running to his side because he was so dominant.” In the most recent game, Marauders arguably outplayed Olean but ended up losing 35-21, after the Huskies were able to score three times in just over two minutes time. But a positive that came out of the loss was that Majka and the offense may have finally found its go-to guy in the backfield. Even though it was Barlette and Bomasuto that were expected to lead the charge, it was Rashad Graham that picked up 147 yards on 23 carries. He rushed for a touchdown

and returned an interception for a touchdown. Gage Austin fi lled in at quarterback in that game and played very well despite the final stats being just 4-for-12 for 30 yards and a pair of interceptions. On of the interceptions came on a beautifully thrown ball on 4th-andlong that an Olean defender wrestled away from the Dunkirk receiver in the corner of the end zone. You’d never guess this was an 0-4 team by speaking to the up-beat Majka, who has seen his team improve every week. “We just want to play sound football week in and week out,” he said. “We want to get technically better at the game. Then the other goals will come. At the beginning of the season we talked about being in the top four (in Class B South) and being in the playoffs. Now we’re looking at being in the bowl series.” And like most coaches, Majka wants to see his team fi nish strong and play good football down the stretch. “Every league game is huge,” he added. “It’s our MO in Dunkirk that we like to do things the hard way. Our backs are against the wall now. We’ll see what the kids are made of. I have a feeling they’ll want to come out fighting. We’ll see what they’ve got.” More season highlights: Quarterback Josh Goodwin escaped pressure and took the ball 34 yards to the house in the first quarter of Week 1; Richard Pickens returned a punt 58 yards to set up Dunkirk’s lone score in Week 2; Lugan recorded 10 tackles and a pair of sacks in Week 3.

chautauqua Lake-maple grove thunder dragons

Head Coach: Curt Fischer

2013 Schedule

9/6 vs. Portville (Win 13-0) 9/13 vs. Nichols (Win 49-6) 9/20 at Cassadaga Valley (Win 56-0) 9/27 vs. Randolph (Loss 35-7) 10/4 vs. Westfield-Brocton (canceled) 10/11 at Ellicottville-West Valley 10/19 at Clymer With just one loss on the season, the merger between Maple Grove and Chautauqua Lake has clearly produced a solid football team. The Thunder Dragons are probably disappointed with their loss to Randolph in their latest game, but there’s little shame in losing to the defending New York

State champion and No. 1 ranked team in the state. The first game in the history of the combined programs produced an impressive 13-0 win over Portville. Tyler Furlow provided the key play on defense when he not only stopped a Portville drive inside the red zone, but took his interception back 54 yards to fl ip field position. Furlow also added eight tackles in the win. The offense wasn’t explosive Week 1, but Ryan Miller managed 130 yards on 22

carries, including a 26yard touchdown scamper. Kyle Mayer added a 2-yard touchdown plunge for Chautauqua Lake-Maple Grove. “I would say definitely our offensive and defensive lines are doing a fabulous job right now,” CLMG head coach Curt Fischer said. “It’s been hard. My kids at Maple Grove basically grow up in this system from midgets on up, but we’re still learning new things. We don’t even have half of what we want in yet.” ConTinUed on PG 5

2013 Schedule

9/6 vs. Fredonia (Loss 55-8) 9/13 at Salamanca (Loss 43-18) 9/20 vs. Gowanda (Win 20-0) 9/27 vs. Falconer (Loss 28-14) 10/4 at Randolph 10/11 at Southwestern 10/18 vs. Allegany-Limestone It’s been a rough start to the merger between Silver Creek and Forestville’s football programs in 2013, but there are also plenty of positives to take out of the young season. First off, the schedulemakers didn’t do Silver Creek-Forestville any favors by having the Black Knights open up against the top favorites in Class C South — Fredonia and Salamanca. Yet, SC-F held its own against both teams for long stretches during those games. “We started very slow last year and were able to turn things around,” SC-F head coach Sean Helmer said. “It could have been a disastrous season but we had some seniors that really led the turnaround. We had a nice run. We’ll try to do that again this year.” In addition to absorbing some of Forestville’s best athletes in the merger, Silver Creek also now has the added advantage of added experience on the coaching staff as Scot Greenough and Greg Greenough both came over as assistant coaches. “We have a great staff,” Helmer beamed. “I’m really enjoying the work these guys put in. They are

very dedicated coaches. The players are great kids, too. They’re great athletes with solid work ethic. We’re really gelled and that was kind of a big worry coming in.” The opening game with Fredonia looked like it was going to be a close contest. Both teams scored a touchdown early in the opening quarter and the score remained 8-8 until Fredonia broke the plane with just seconds remaining in the fi rst quarter. That score opened up the floodgates and the Hillbillies went on to win convincingly, 55-8. “I think Fredonia is the best team in Class C South,” Helmer noted. “We’ll see.” Week 2 brought about a road contest with Salamanca, which was another preseason favorite to be the class of C South. Running back Sherman Williams was able to get into the end zone twice and Jacob Lewis tossed a 42-yard touchdown to Brandon VanZile, but the Silver Creek defense struggled to stop the Warriors. “I think we always hang our hat on our defense here at Silver Creek,” Helmer said. “We always have tough, physical kids and we always expect to play great defense. Some years we have a better defense than others, but year in and year out I think that’s something we pride ourselves on.” That defense really stepped up in a big way in Week 3 at home against Gowanda. It forced a turnover in the fi rst quarter that set quarterback Jake Nosbisch and the offense up at the Gowanda 9 yard line. Nosbisch took it into the end zone himself for the early lead. Then with just 10 seconds left in the half, Nosbisch

hit Kraig Gilbert for a 60-yard touchdown and a 13-0 halftime lead in an eventual 20-0 win. Unfortunately, the Black Knights were unable to keep that momentum going into their Week 4 contest with Falconer as the Golden Falcons’ Cody Dustin ran for nearly 400 yards and four touchdowns. SC-F dropped the game 28-14. After Dustin took the fi rst play from scrimmage 80 yards for a touchdown, SC-F actually played a pretty good game, bending but not breaking on defense and moving the ball against the Falconer defense. Another 80-yard touchdown from Dustin was a back-breaker however as a banged-up Black Knight defense couldn’t answer the bell. The schedule doesn’t get any easier this week as SC-F takes to the road to play Randolph — New York State’s No. 1 ranked team in Class D. “We always tell the kids we want to get better each day and each week,” Helmer added. “It’s a long season. You have injuries and a lot of things that can happen. It’s not a sprint. It’s more of a long race. We can always work to get better and we’re always moving in the right direction. Our goal is to play in the stadium. We want to be division champs and all of those things. We set pretty lofty goals every year.” More season highlights: Nosbisch was named MVP of the Grape Bowl in Week 3 after having a hand in all three Black Knight touchdowns; Sherman Williams picked up 110 yards on 22 carries in Week 4; Jacob Lewis hauled in four receptions for 100 yards in Week 4.

good condition.” Collver made his first career start at quarterback in Week 1 against Pine Valley and led the Bears to a 35-0 win on the road. Gray didn’t ask the young signal caller to do much, but when he did Cullver answered the bell. “I think he took a total of about 12 snaps as a freshman last year,” Gray said of Cullver. “He was very poised. He runs our offense with consistency.” Coming into the season, Gray wasn’t sure exactly how his offense would look. “We weren’t sure if we wanted to run to set up the pass or pas to set up the run,” he explained. “Both parts have been pretty efficient. We’d like to be very balanced so we can capitalize on things teams try to take away.” Week 2 brought about more of the same efficient success in a 38-12 win over Class DD foe Franklinville. Gray opened up the playbook a little bit more for his young quarterback and Collver responded with touchdown passes of 35, 35, 27 and 11 yards. He finished 8-of-14 for 104 yards through the air. It wasn’t just the aerial assault that was working for the Bears as Trevor Spicer rushed for 103 yards on just 13 carries to pace the ground game. Unfortunately, Week 3 brought about a non-league matchup with every team’s worst nightmare — Randolph. The defending Class D New York State champions are well-known to be loaded at nearly every position. The Cardinals showed their prowess in spades in a 42-8 win over Frewsburg. Of note in the game however, was that Frewsburg became the first defense to keep Randolph’s first team offense out of the end zone

and also became the first offense to score on Randolph’s first team defense. Neither of those feats exactly made it a game, but you have to take the little things against a team like Randolph. A Week 4 matchup with Panama was Frewsburg jump out to a 12-0 lead as the Bears seemed poised to improve their record to 3-1. But 20 unanswered points by the Panthers nixed that idea as Panama came back to win 20-12. Kevin Rodgers led the offense with 91 rushing yards on 14 attempts, but the Bears were only able to must two first towns in the second half. Frewsburg had the ball with time winding down in the fourth, but Collver was sacked to end the game. Frewsburg gets back-toback home games against Sherman and Clymer to try to get back on track before finishing the regular season on the road against Cattaraugus-Little Valley. “We’ve played all those teams,” Gray added. “It’s going to be good solid football. I hope we can keep competing. “Our football team is about the development of young men,” Gray pointed out. “We have a huge character development program and a leadership committee. That’s what I want to see. I want to see our kids develop in the classroom. I was to see them develop as a family on the football team. If we can do that it will lead to wins.” More season highlights: Garrett Steele caught three of Collver’s four touchdown passes and had 73 yards receiving in Week 2; Kevin Rodgers and Zach Haller each had a sack in Week 2; Trevor Spicer picked off Randolph quarterback Mitch Maycock in the first half of Week 3 action.

versity of Mt. Union before spending the past two seasons as jayvee coach at Chautauqua Lake. This is his first full season as a varsity head coach, but he’s definitely a guy that knows football. “We have a good core of tight ends and receivers,” he added. “We’re trying to do some things around them. We just need to make sure our blocking is very good. We should be alright once that is sorted out.” Through four weeks, that has not been sorted out. In Week 1, the Panthers ran into a big, strong, fast Frewsburg team that raced out to a 35-0 win in Pine Valley. It wasn’t exactly the ideal way to start a head coaching career and it was made more difficult when starting quarterback Dan Weaver exited

with a shoulder injury. In Week 2 the Panthers welcomed Cassadaga Valley to Pine Valley and were treated to a 42-12 loss to the visiting Cougars. The game actually started pretty well for Pine Valley as they forced and recovered a fumble on Cassadaga Valley’s opening possession. Unfortunately the offense would pick up just one first down before turning the ball over on downs. With a short field, the Cougars got into the end zone and never looked back. Week 3 was one to forget for the Panthers. The rushing attack managed just 35 yards against Panama in a 34-8 loss. Considering the total lack of offense, the Pine Valley defense more than held its own. Panama’s

defensive line was just too much for the Pine Valley offensive line to handle. Another mismatch was evident in Week 4 when winless Pine Valley traveled to Sherman to take on the undefeated Wildcats. Both teams remained that way as Sherman won, 32-6. The opening quarter had Pine Valley thinking upset after quarterback Dan Weaver took off on a 40-yard touchdown run that gave the Panthers an early lead. Unfortunately, Andrew Graham matched that with a 50-yard touchdown run for Sherman. The twopoint conversion pushed the Wildcats to an 8-6 advantage and that’s as close as the Panthers would get. Perhaps the most winnable

game remaining on the Pine Valley schedule comes this week at Clymer against the Pirates, but Zollinger isn’t looking at it that way. “It’ll be very interesting,” he admitted. “Obviously all of the home games are big for our seniors. The league is full of good teams and good coaches who have been at it a lot longer than I have. “It’s an awesome honor to be coaching at my alma mater and I’m looking forward to the rest of the season.” More season highlights: Receiver Bryce Jay hauled in 49 yards and a touchdown in Week 2; Dylan Granger took over as quarterback late in the game and threw a touchdown to Killian Abers in Week 2; Calvin Snyder tallied 10 tackles in Week 4.

Mid-season Review



SoUtHWeSterN NeedS to BUiLd off Hot Start coNtiNUed from pg 1 The Southwestern Trojans have a recent history of great success on the football field. The team won New York State Class C titles in both 2008 and 2009 and was in the state finals in 2011. Last year saw the team struggle to a 3-6 record, but no team coached by Jay Sirianni should be considered anything but a legitimate threat to the Class C South title. So when the Trojans began the season 2-0 after winning on the road in Gowanda and at home against Allegany-Limestone, the preseason favorites in the division took notice. Junior quarterback Noah Weinstein scored all three of Southwestern’s touchdown in Week 1’s 20-14 win in Gowanda. Two of those scores came in the fourth quarter. The Trojans allowed Gowanda running back Brandon Geiger to gash his way for 204 yards on 30 carries, but a win is a win. While it was Weinstein that found the end zone three times, his 16 carries for 55 yards was good for only the third-leading rusher on the team behind Hunter Peterson (eight carries, 71 yards) and Jake Chamberlin (four carries, 57 yards). Corey Breyerton intercepted a pair of passes for the Trojans while Jordan Breyerton was the team’s leading tackler with 11. Weinstein again paced the offense in a Week 2 win over Allegany-Limestone. In the Trojans’ home opener, Weinstein tossed touchdowns to both Mike Sandbloom and freshman Niko Pannes. He finished 6-of-13 for 110 yards through the air. Again the win wasn’t the cleanest by Southwestern. The team struggled to hang on to the ball and lost a pair of fumbles inside Allegany-Limestone territory. But the team upped its record to 2-0 nonetheless. There’s no column for ‘ugly wins’ or ‘close losses’ in football. A win is a win. Unfortunately, the Trojan magic ran out in a 32-16 loss to Olean in Week 3. Southwestern fumbled on its first pos-

session of the game – a sign of things to come. The Trojans turned the ball over five times in the first half alone. Luckily the defense was playing pretty well to keep Southwestern in the game or this one could have gotten ugly in a hurry. But alas, Olean only led 13-7 at the break despite having those five takeaways in the first half. The teams traded touchdowns in the third quarter as Olean capped a 58-yard drive with a score before Southwestern answered back with a 65-yard drive capped by a 3-yard run by Hunter Peterson. A broken play may have made all the difference in this game. Wil Bathurst was back to punt for Olean, which would have given Southwestern tremendous field position. Instead, Bathurst didn’t punt but paused, and took off 15 yards for a first down. Four plays later Bathurst hauled in a 54-yard touchdown pass from Chance Anzivine and that’s as close as Southwestern would get for the rest of the game. It’s not often a loss boosts a team’s confidence, but Southwestern’s 28-21 defeat at the hands of Fredonia had to be good for the team’s morale. Fredonia is now 4-0 and considered the clear head of Class C South. But

Southwestern proved that it can play with the best of the division. A few bounces here or there and perhaps the Trojans knock off the Hillbillies. Southwestern used a little trickery to gain an advantage as Sirianni called for an onside kick to open the second half – similar to what Sean Payton did in the Super Bowl a few years back. The Trojans recovered, went 48 yards down the field and Weinstein took the ball in from 7 yards out to cut the Fredonia lead to 21-13. Amazingly, Sirianni again dialed up the onside kick and the Trojans again recovered. This time, they didn’t need any time-consuming 10-play drive because Hunter Peterson was kind enough to break the first play of the drive 38 yards for a touchdown. Weinstein hit Josh Ulinger for the two-point conversion to knot the score at 21. For nearly a full quarter the teams traded punches but neither could break the tie. But then Matt McCarthy found some breathing room with just over 11 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and took the ball 24 yards for the go-ahead and eventual game-winning touchdown for Fredonia. Still, Fredonia had been pummeling everyone in its path this season and Southwestern gave the Hillbillies all they could handle at the Orange Bowl. The schedule doesn’t get a whole lot easier for Southwestern as it also travels to play Salamanca this week before ending with two home games against Silver Creek-Forestville and Falconer. More season highlights: Peterson churned out 86 yards on the ground in Week 2 while Brenden Kennedy added 57 in the same game; Tanner Hoose connected on a 22-yard field goal and booted a pair of extra points in the Week 2 win; Kevin Balardo led the team in rushing in Week 3 with 93 yards on 13 carries; Kyle Moran contributed eight tackles, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and a blocked kick in Week 3.

caN StrUggLiNg pirateS rigHt tHe SHip? coNtiNUed from pg 1 This year, only the first part of that has been true and the 0-4 Pirates continue to struggle through injuries, errors and an increasingly tough Class DD. The Week 1 shutout came at the hands of the Panama Panthers, who defended their home field to the tune of 21-0 over the invading Pirates. Special teams is often an overlooked factor in football, but it was a pair of special teams blunders by Clymer that basically cost the Pirates a chance to win the game. First came a muffed punt return left Clymer pinned way back against the shadow of its own goalposts early in the second quarter. Three runs and zero yards later, the Pirates sent out the punt team with the hopes of flipping field position. Alas, that punt traveled 35 yards into the hands of Panama’s Dillon Mescall who promptly returned it 35 yards back to the original line of scrimmage. Panama scored a touchdown just moments later and Clymer wouldn’t be

able to fight back. The Pirates’ first chance at redemption came against rival Sherman at home in Week 2. Unfortunately for the home team, Sherman came out and broke some big plays en route to an early lead. After a Jake Wiggers punt pinned Sherman deep in its own territory, the Pirates defense was fired up hoping to get the ball back in good field position. Instead, Sherman’s Andrew Graham broke off an 82-yard touchdown run nearly untouched down the left sideline to up the Wildcats’ lead to 16-0. The Clymer offense wasn’t all that bad despite the lack of points on the scoreboard. Three times the Pirates moved the ball into the red zone, but came up empty each time. A pair of interceptions and a turnover on downs were to blame for those promising drive stalling. Clymer fi nally found the end zone in its Week 3 matchup with Franklinville, but the Pirates still

came up on the short end of the scoreboard, 25-12. Wiggers was a differencemaker early as he carried the ball 17 times for 100 yards and was consistently finding room to run against the Franklinville defense. But an injured ankle forced the Pirates’ star player from the game in the second quarter and proverbial wind was taken out of the team’s sails. Quarterback Matt DeStevens did find Mitch Einink for a 21yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, but it was a too little, too late for the Pirates. Week 4 presented something of a mismatch as the Cattaraugus-Little Valley Timberwolves defended their home field with a 40-6 win over the Pirates. The game started about as well as it could have for Clymer as the first possession of the game saw DeStevens march the offense down the field 70 yards before capping off the drive with a 6-yard keeper for the score. But a bad snap on a punt

touchdowns…in the first quarter. His runs in the opening quarter measured 67, 43 and 19 yards, respectively. On the day, Miller finished with 154 yards on the ground on just nine attempts. “If you ever watch him, he has so much wiggle,” Fischer said of his quarterback. “He can plant and cut. He is very durable. He is a very, very nice player.” So at 3-0 entering their much anticipated showdown with Randolph, the Thunder Dragons were brimming with confidence. Unfortunately the Cardinals showed exactly why they’re the defending state champions

“We have the ability to be the best team in Western New York,” the coach added. “We just need to execute and do what we need to do. Frontier is very strong. Orchard Park is very strong. People might say we’re the favorites (in Class AA) but in my opinion it’s too early to tell. Our job is to worry about our own team. “Our season goes like this,” Langworthy continued, “we try to win every single game at home. We’re going and favorites to do it again. then, Fischer just wants to see to try to win the league.

Until of interceptons in Week 3.

tHUNder dragoNS LooKiNg StroNg coNtiNUed from pg 3 Week 2 had CLMG go up against non-league opponent Nichols and not only come out with a win, but come out with a huge win, 49-6. The offense scored on three of its first four possessions. Mayer led the way this time with 155 yards on the ground. Then came a chippy, 56-0 demolishing of Cassadaga Valley in a downpour on a Saturday afternoon in Week 3. Junior quarterback Miller was the offensive catalyst from the get-go in this one. Not letting the weather affect his game plan, Fischer repeatedly called Miller’s number. The result: Three

resulted in a safety and Justin Forester and Kyle O’Donnell each scored a pair of touchdowns for C-LV as the Timberwolves poured it on. Again without Wiggers, it was Garrett McAfoose who answered the ball for Clymer. The senior running back filled in admirably with 102 yards on 23 carries. The Pirates host fellow winless Class DD team Pine Valley this week in a game that will definitely see one team get its first win of the season. Clymer will close its season on the road against Frewsburg and then at home against the Maple Grove-Chautauqua Lake Thunder Dragons. More season highlights: Punter Jake Wiggers looked like toast when he scrambled nearly 30 yards behind the line of scrimmage to escape a Panama rush in Week 1, but he somehow, some way got a punt away after all that; Wiggers also escaped for a 53-yard run in Week 3 before leaving with an injury.

as good as Jamestown has been so far, Langworthy expects his team to be even better by the time that game rolls around. “We’re getting better every week,” he said. “That’s how you get to where you need to be. If you’re peaking in Week 4 than the end of the year is going to be very disappointing. We want to ride that peak throughout the rest of the year. I don’t expect us to be perfect in Week 3, but I want us to be pretty close to perfect in Weeks 11, 12 and 13. The players need to be students of the game. If we play with enthusiasm and passion, we’ll have a good product on the field.” More season highlights: Kicker Quinn Lee Yaw booted a schoolrecord 47-yard field goal in Week 2; Reciever Zack Panebianco hauled in nine catches for 223 yards and two touchdowns in Week 2; Cameron Harberberger notched 12 tackles and a pair of sacks in Week 3.
