Lighting Lives

By Scott Wise Star Copy Editor

The holiday season is quickly approaching, and it brings with it the joy of presents, hot chocolate, warm fires and reliving family traditions. For some, it becomes more about enjoying the family we have and remembering those who we’ve lost. Chautauqua County Hospice is striving to provide an opportunity for people in this area, and beyond, to celebrate the lives of their family members with their annual Light a Life campaign, now in its fifteenth year. Light a Life gives people the opportunity to purchase a memorial bow or ornament, which is then displayed on holiday trees in communities around the county. “We really want people to have a special way to remember their loved ones during the Holidays,” said Megan D’Angelo for Hospice Chautauqua County. “The Light a Life memorial tree lighting gives them that chance.” The Light a Life campaign is a simple way to not only remember someone, but a way to raise funds for Hospice, which is essential since it’s a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. “We’ll be lighting three trees around the county,” said D’Angelo. “The lighting is always a touching ceremony; people hug, cry and laugh as

they remember. It’s really an amazing experience.” The first tree lighting ceremony will be held at the Jamestown Christmas Parade on Nov. 30. The second is Wednesday, Dec. 5 at 5:30 p.m. at the Medicor Office in Fredonia, and the last is at Hospice’s office in Lakewood on Dec. 7 at 5:30 p.m. Additionally, the Town of Chautauqua will host a tree lighting ceremony on Dec. 5 at 5:30 p.m. In all these townships, residents have expressed their excitement at partnering with

Hospice for the cause. This year, the tree lighting ceremony will be led by Tonia Brown and her family. Brown’s father, Randy Pike Sr., was diagnosed with a brain tumor in May of 2011. In August, doctors determined that his condition was terminal, and Tonia knew it was time to call Hospice. “I knew about [Hospice] before hand, but we hadn’t had any experience with them,” said Brown. “But what they did for us after was truly incredible. My father had a blood

clot in his lungs and he had to go to a rehab facility and everything started going downhill after that.” As a Vietnam veteran, a lot of what Pike endured was symptomatic of Agent Orange exposure. Because of his status as a Veteran, Randy qualified for the ‘We Honor veterans’ program through Hospice, which opened the door for some lifechanging news for Brown and her mother, Judy.

Volunteer Fire Departments Looking for Younger Recruits Local Fire Companies Hope Incentives Will Attract New Members

By DANIEL MEYER Star Contributing Writer

Some of the volunteer fire departments based in Chautauqua County who are having a hard time finding young recruits are hoping some enticing incentives will attract prospective members who are ready to learn and hopefully willing to stay on the job for the long-term. As current members get older and at the same time others either move away or choose to reduce their availability, board members and officers of the local fire companies continue to work on new recruitment concepts to attract new volunteers. The growing concern for volunteer fire departments appears to be an aging problem, with the average age of their current members continuing to increase as active volunteers who eventually become exempt members are not being replaced with younger volunteers.

While a number of factors are contributing, one of the major issues appears to revolve around the continuing escalation in training requirements that are symptomatic of the increased professionalism required of volunteer fire and rescue emergency services. The significant recruitment and retention problem stems from the limited number of incentives for volunteers, family and work obligations and the time and money required for mandatory safety courses, advanced training lessons and re-certification classes. Similar to how the military offers a “G.I. Bill” to military veterans who have proudly served their country, local volunteer fire departments have gotten creative in discovering ways to give back for expenses that firefighters have to endure in order to further their emergency services and fire safety education. To help recruit new volunteers or to give back to existing members, volunteer fire departments located in Chautauqua County will help advance their education through a federal program known as the “Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant.” Designed specifically to help promote the recruitment and retention of volunteer firefighters, nearly $400,000 in federal funds was received by Chautauqua County as part of a four-year grant that allows

for new recruits and existing volunteer firefighters to advance their education and meet the necessary training and safety course requirements. “The majority of the funds are used as a recruitment tool and equally important used as a way to help retain volunteers,” said Julius Leone, director of emergency services for Chautauqua County. “We are always working extremely hard to obtain grants such as the SAFER grant to assist those who help to keep us all safe.” Eligible firefighters have the option to attend Jamestown Community College or a technical school to further their education and gain extra skills that can help them in employment. According to Leone, those who participate in the program must be active volunteers. Despite the fact that firefighters are considered perhaps the most selfless people in the community, most people do not recognize their selflessness goes far beyond responding to fire scenes and requests for emergency assistance. Volunteer firefighters incur personal costs associated with volunteering, such as wear and tear on their vehicle, the cost of gas and the factor that some employers require volunteer firefighters to take personal or vacation time when they are forced to respond to fires during work time.

“People make a lot of personal sacrifice, particularly the very active volunteers,” said Leone. “Their hard work and dedication is appreciated, particularly at this time in our history where we have found that we must reach out a bit more into our community to attract new members to serve.” In order to be eligible for the program, those who participate must actively participate when volunteers are requested. Service can include responding to emergency calls and requests for assistance from the community, as well as participating in fundraising activities and other special events.

Okay, it’s true. I’m a sucker for science fiction. Give me a warp drive, quantum tunneling mechanism and a flux capacitor and I’m set for days. But several studies lately have led me to believe- what if I live to see the day that some of the science fiction I so enjoy ceases to become fiction? Now don’t get me wrong- I don’t believe in aliens or intelligence beyond our atmosphere. You may say“But there’s too much space out there not to have some life on it,” but I don’t buy it. It’s no secret that I recognize myself as a Christian, and I’m fully convinced that space, in

its vast entirety, was created simply for my observational wonder and enjoyment. But, third-kind debates aside, I am simply fascinated by the facets of human imagination and ingenuity when it comes to faster-than-light travel and molecular transportation. According to the laws of physics and general relativity, fasterthan-light travel was impossible. Until, that is, in the 1990s, a Mexican theoretical physicist, hypothesized that it was indeed possible to warp the space around something in order to actually travel faster than light. Of course, there’s a whole lot more to it than what I am capable of understanding at this point, but that’s the gist. Moreover, he specified that the energy it would take to perform such a task would be enormous and, by today’s standards, insurmountable. Recently though, that theory was advanced by another brilliant mind who, by simply changing the shape of a metal ring, reduced the amount of energy needed exponentially. Why am I saying all this? Because I never cease to marvel at the capabilities of the hu-

man mind. We are constantly growing in our understanding and interactivity with the world around us, something that causes us to bring to light new and amazing achievements. You may balk at the idea of science fiction one day becoming a reality, but tell that to someone in 1832. In 1832, the only truly long-lasting and effective way to capture the face of someone you cared about was with paint created from the breaking down of naturally occurring pigments found in plants and rocks. After Louis DaGuerre discovered the prospect of mixing silver with lightreactant chemicals, the first photograph was born. Now, you can take a high-definition video with your cell phone. I think it important not to discredit those things we don’t understand, but rather pursue them. Not with the assumption, or really fear, that it will change us as a people. We must meld our inquisitive nature with a secure foundation of who we are, thus ensuring that any knowledge we encounter will only serve to further and grow us.

Chautauqua County Energy Conference & Expo Highlights Proposed Natural Gas Plant, Green Energy ing “the status of the project now and their application to build the $100 million dollar natural gas electric generation plant which would eventually replace the coal powered facility,” Daly says. “This isn’t a case where the plant wasn’t up to snuff. It was one of the most advanced plants in North America. They are non-competitive price-wise.” He continues, “The cleanest of the fossil fuels is natural gas, so that in itself is great.”

According to Bill Daly, Administrative Director and CEO of the Chautauqua County Industrial Development Agency (CCIDA), the event is “hugely important for people in Dunkirk,” because of the discussion by NRG officials on the status of the natural gas electric generation plant. Officials are scheduled to give a 90-minute presentation, including a question and answer session regard-

Now in its fifth year, the Chautauqua County Energy Conference and Expo has a new venue and has streamline its presentations to four topics including NRG Energy’s plans for a new natural gasfired plant in Dunkirk and wind power projects in the county. The event takes place at Dunkirk’s Clarion Hotel and Conference Center on October 27.

NRG, he says, has “spent tremendous amounts of money updating the old plant- it’s one of the best coal plants in America.” The reason it isn’t running now is that the price of gas is so low, which Daly says has had put the plant at a disadvantage. In addition, the first session of the conference, presented by NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research and Development Agency) will showcase the new website,

Around 20 vendors will also be on hand for the conference., which includes initiatives from the state, federal and local utilities on energy cost savings. Another panel will discuss wind energy and how it has changed significantly in the last few years. According to Daly, “the rules, regulations and sophistication of massive commercial wind farms are ten times what they were when the project was first presented in Westfield 10

Weight Limit Restrictions Imposed on Three County Routes

Elizabeth Bracey, program manager of Project Crossroads, and John Rader, domestic violence officer, set up “Silent Witnesses” at Prendergast Library in observance of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In cooperation with the Jamestown Police Department, the figures are on display near the library’s entrance this week.

Office of County Executive Greg Edwards

Last week the Chautauqua County Department of Public Facilities posted weight limit restrictions on County Routes 8, 10, and 23 to limit the use of these highways to vehicles weighing less than 12,000 pounds per axel. This was a direct result of the notice we received about the pending use of two gas wells located just over the Pennsylvania border in Columbus Township as “injection wells.” The County has been involved in this matter for well over six months since we learned that a company was working to secure use

ture failure of our County highways. While our roads are well built, they were not designed or engineered to withstand this additional punishment and as a result damage would occur and costs would result for the repair or replacement of the roads. All highway users exceeding the weight posted limit should contact the Department of Public Facilities at (716) 661-8400 and apply for an overweight permit Anyone with  special concerns or impacts from this posting may contact Department of Public Facilities Director George Spanos, or my office at (716) 753-4211.

of these old natural gas wells as locations to pump millions of gallons of Marcellus shale wastewater from the drilling operations in Pennsylvania into the ground in what is called “deep well injection.” While many issues are involved in this proposal, the road posting is quite easily understood. The information we received was that 12 tanker trucks per day, 6 days a week for 5 years would be traveling from Pennsylvania onto Chautauqua County roads to reach the location where they would unload the wastewater right at the border of New York and Pennsylvania. This additional heavy traffic would result in prema-

RELIGION SECTION The Weekly Word Abraham: The Father of Faith

Rev. Tim Stahlman Family Church Jamestown

Rev. Michael Lokietek Family Church Fredonia

The solution to hard times lies in what has been planned by our Heavenly Father before the creation of the Earth. God has already made provision for you in all arenas of life. He has already declared you successful, victorious, and provided for in your peace of mind, finances, and health. Too many times Christians are focused on natural problems and not supernatural solutions. A man in the Bible named Abraham lived beyond natural problems and walked in the power of God. We are reminded of his story in Romans 4:17-18. It says, “God had written about

October is Pastor Appreciation Month. What can I do to really appreciate my hard working Pastor? Last week we looked at the most important way of honoring our Pastor, by praying for him/her! No Pastor will be able to do their job without the continuous support of a praying congregation. The God-given destiny of your Pastor and your church are determined by your prayers and support! This week I want to highlight another way to honor

Abraham, I have made you the father of many nations… (and Abraham) believed God in faith even when there was no human reason to believe it would come to pass…” When God told Abraham that he would become the father of many nations Abraham was 75 years old and without a son. Abraham was obviously surprised to hear what God had spoken about him. Abraham had naturally given up on having children. Abraham was like most of us; just following the natural flow of our circumstances. But then something changed. Abraham became aware of what existed for him in the

supernatural realm of God. In the supernatural plan of God, Abraham was to be a father. He was to bless all the earth with his descendants. The thoughts in the Mind of God were higher than the thoughts of man. Abraham could have reacted like many Christians do today and said something like, “If it happens then God must have wanted it for me.” That is a troubling statement that should never come out of the mouth of a Christian. There are many things God wants for His people that they don’t have because they do not use their faith. What does the Bible say about Abraham?

Keeping the Faith your Pastor during Pastor Appreciation Month…and that’s with your support of their leadership as Pastor of your church. When someone serves as the Pastor of a church, it is because God has called them to do so and has placed an anointing on the office into which they are called. They bring their own flesh and blood into the calling along with their own individual talents, skills, and personalities. One of the most valuable truths that you can recognize is our individual responsibilities to the church.

We must first remember that as the Pastor, God holds them responsible for providing an example, leadership, and receiving the vision for the church (1 Timothy 3:1-7). God holds us responsible for submitting to their leadership (Hebrews 13:17). We are not held responsible for the Pastor’s job, only to support them through maintaining a good attitude, respect, and following through with what we should be doing. It is not our job to tell the Pastor what’s wrong with him/her or how the church should

Romans 4:20 says, “Abraham staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief but was strong in faith giving glory to God.” Notice Abraham could have stumbled over the promise and forfeited what God had for him. Abraham could have lived and died without becoming the father of anything. Every Christian must realize that there are essentially two realities you can choose to live from. The first reality is your natural circumstances. These are the things in life that will trouble you and will continue to trouble you if you allow them to. The second reality is the God reality. God

has already spoken things about you that will make you victorious in life. Abraham decided to live out of the God reality. Abraham literally said, “Glory to God, I am a father” even though he had no child. Abraham went to the place where the “real Abraham” was; to the place of God’s promises. Our reality is not our circumstances in life. Our reality is what God had declared in His supernatural Word. We must train our mouths to speak in agreement with God if we want to live beyond this troubled natural world.

be run. People may be quick to criticize or judge a pastor while being ignorant of all the aspects of the particular decision. They may also forget that their Pastor may be making the decision in obedience to God. A better response is to pray and lend a helping hand! Anytime we mention submitting to the Pastor, it would be remiss of me to ignore the presence of abuses of power that have sometimes surfaced in the media regarding the Pastor’s office. As the Apostle

Paul indicated…”Follow me as I follow Christ.” The important part of this scripture is “as I follow Christ.” A church would be foolish to exist without safeguards to protect the church from potential problems. It is not a lack of trust…its Biblical good sense! This makes it even more important to pray for our Pastors…to guard them and to keep them on the path of Christ. Next week…More!

Medicare Open Enrollment Contributed Article Putnam Record Agency

There are two main ways to get Medicare. Someone can choose Original Medicare (Parts A and B) or a Medicare Advantage plan (Part C). Original Medicare is provided by the government. Medicare Advantage Plans are provided by private insurance companies. If you decide to choose a Medicare Advantage Plan, you have your choice of plans and private insurance companies that offer them. Some of these plans are zero-premium and include prescription drug coverage. You will pay a share of the cost with Original Medicare Did you know that you contributed to Medicare by paying taxes while you worked? As a result, when you turn 65, you are entitled to Medicare. But remember, Original Medicare does not pay for all of the costs of medical care or hospitalization. You still have to pay a share of the cost in monthly premiums and co-pays. A supplemental insurance plan helps control costs. A Medicare supplement insurance plan helps limit these costs by covering deductibles, co-pays and more, should you

become seriously ill or need to seek a lot of care. The most popular plan is plan F. Prescription drug coverage can help limit drug costs. Any Medicare member can get optional prescription drug coverage (Part D). You have a choice. You can enroll in a stand-alone Part D plan to go with your Original Medicare coverage. Or you can enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan that offers the prescription drug coverage. If you enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan that doesn’t offer prescription drug coverage, you can enroll in a stand-alone Part D Plan. You may pay a penalty on your premium if you don’t sign up for Part D coverage when you become eligible for Medicare, unless you qualify for an exception. Timing is everything. Your first chance to enroll in Medicare is the Initial Enrollment Period or IEP. The IEP is three months before your birthday, your birthday month, and three months after the month of your 65th birthday. To be covered the first day of your birthday month, you must enroll before the month you turn 65. If you enroll during your birthday month or later, coverage will state on the first

day of the month following the date you enrolled. It makes a difference where you live. Across the United State Medicare Parts A and B are the same. It is Medicare Parts C and D that are offered by private companies and may be available only in certain counties, states or regions. There are some Part C and D plans that offer nationwide coverage. Medicare supplement policies offer nationwide coverage and are available by state. Review your choices once a year. A lot can change in a year when it comes to your health. When you choose your Medicare coverage, remember you are not locked in. You can change your plans every year during the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) , October 15-December 7. It is a good idea to check your coverage every year to make sure it still fits your needs. Special Election Period (SEP) You may be able to enroll in or switch plans outside the IEP or AEP if there are changes in your life situation such as: -You retire and leave a health care plan through your union

or employer -You move out of your current health plan’s service area Get started by taking a look at your current coverage. If

The Chautauqua County Mounted Patrol Division

Chautauqua County Mounted Patrol Association vice president Doug Newton is shown with his horse Princess Selena.

By Patricia Pihl Managing Editor

Spotted atop their horses at the Chautauqua County Fair or at parades, The Chautauqua County Mounted Patrol Division has served the Sheriff ’s department for fifty-five years and has the proud distinction of being the oldest active unit in New York State. Combining authority with the majesty of a bygone era, few

would disagree that these certified peace officers and their animals display a commanding presence. What the public might not know is that the mounted patrol- although given police powers for crowd control and search and rescue missions – are unpaid volunteers required to complete 235 hours of training, are certified by the state and continue regular instruction during their service. Doug Newton, Chautauqua County Mounted Patrol Association vice president, has been working with the patrol for over 20 years along with his horse Princess Selena. He says its purpose is not to replace a police officer, but rather to aid and protect regular duty officers. “The horses are much like canines in one sense, there are things that we do that they can’t do.” In a crowd control situation, Newton says an officer on a horse is able to identify and isolate an individual. “That way the regular duty officers can do their job to question or arrest…or whatever they have to do at the time.” Wendy Kendall, also a member of the Mounted Patrol Division adds, “One mounted police officer is equivalent to ten foot patrol officers in a crowd situation. “They (the horses) can be very intimidating, so people naturally just

back off.” Newton says, “I’ve worked for two years at Watkins Glen, which is where I got my crowd my experience (with Princess)…there were over 300,000 people, there were parties, bonfires…and junk all over.” “I’ve gone into crowds where there was a fight going on and all of a sudden everyone just stops and starts looking at the horse. The entire demeanor and attitude of people just changes.” Sometimes, individuals in the crowd even stop and pet the horses, Newton states. Before being deployed by the sheriff ’s department, recruits have to pass a thorough background check and then have extensive preliminary and ongoing training. For their part, horses also undergo training and are screened for a suitable temperament. “Personality is the main thing,” according to Newton. Breed, he says, is less important. “Most of them are quarter horses or crosses. Bigger horses are better in crowds and seem to be more relaxed.” Together, rider and horse complete 48 hours of instruction including obstacle course training and nighttime riding. Mounted patrol officers own and care for their own horses, choosing the horse they feel is best suited for the job. While the division pays for their

uniforms and other business expenses, it’s up to the owners to take care of their horse. “My horse is 23 years old, Newton proudly states, “Next year will be her 20th year working with the mounted division. She gets better every year.” The group has 15 members in its association, ten of which are appointed as mounted deputies. Kendall admits it is increasingly difficult to find

The rewards are well worth it according to the pair and include personal satisfaction and helping the community. Kendall says it is “in her blood,” mentioning a brother, father and husband who served in law enforcement. There’s satisfaction too in the eyes of children and the public who love the horses, she says. And Newton? “I like riding, I have all my life…this gives me an excuse to ride…a responsibility for something.”

new recruits due to the commitment and time requirement – which has gone up in recent years from 80 to 235 hours. In addition, once a month deputies participate in a refresher course on defensive tactics and article 35 (the use of physical force in penal law), and weapons training. “We are looking for recruits, if someone is willing to go through the background check and training.”

Lake Shore Behavioral Health Program Receives National Award

With a national award received for excellence in behavioral health programming at Lake Shore Health Care Center in Irving, NY, are (from left ) Charleen A. Ryan, RN, MA, MFT, Vice President of Acute Patient Care; Nancy Kelleher, RN, MS, program director for the hospital’s Behavioral Health Services; and Laura Norwood, RN, BS, Nurse Manager.

Contributed Article Lake Erie Health Organization

The behavioral health program serving Lake Shore Health Care Center in Irving, NY has been recognized nationally for clinical performance and high quality patient outcomes. Nancy Kelleher, RN, MS, program

director for the 20-bed inpatient unit, said the award was presented during ceremonies on September 28 in San Antonio, Texas at an event hosted by Horizon Health, the largest behavioral health management company in the U.S. “I’m so proud of our team,” Ms. Kelleher said. “They’re a talented group of people

and they love what they do. Because of that, they’re committed to helping our patients get better.” Ms. Kelleher said the award is based on data compiled in 2011 ranging from financial performance to program documentation and the results of a two-day on-site audit conducted by a clinical consultant from the Horizon group. The audit showed high scores in patient satisfaction and “above the national average improvements in patient outcomes,” Ms. Kelleher noted. While Horizon represents over 100 contracts in the U.S., the Irving team rose above six finalists in the region to eventually win the top spot. Charleen A. Ryan, RN, MA, MFT, Vice President of Acute Patient Care, said a distinct feature of the unit is its high quality clinical programming. “The other unique piece of our Behavioral Healthcare here is the high number of Master’s prepared counselors. This really adds to the quality and consistency of care for

our patients,” she explained. Lake Shore Health Care Center’s Behavioral Health Services is a short term acute care setting treating men and women ages 18 and over with acute psychiatric disorders. Each patient participates in the development of a strength based plan for treatment along with therapeutic and recreational activities. Medical Director Israr Abbasi, M.D., expressed pride for the staff and program. “We started out with a goal to make TLC Psychiatry a program where we would want to bring our own family, and it seems our team has done that.” Dr. Abbasi congratulated “the whole team and everyone who deserves credit for this. The hospital has supported us. Management has provided the leadership. The staff has worked hard. We will continue to strive to make this the best place both for our patients and staff.” Jack DeVaney, CEO for Horizon Health, said the award

recognizes a program “for its outstanding contributions to clinical excellence and high quality patient outcomes. The program is a leader in innovative clinical practice and demonstrates clinical proficiency through its clinical team’s contributions to their respective clinical specialties. According to the official, “the recipient of this award provides quality treatment services and educational contributions to patients, families, and the hospital community, provides an outstanding monitoring system, and exceeds clinical benchmarks.” The unit opened 17 years ago at Lake Shore Health Care Center and has been managed by Horizon Health for the past two and a half years. Linda Summers, Chief Operating Officer at the hospital, said the recognition award enhances the reputation of the health system as a leader in service excellence and clinical care. “We promote the importance of the patient ex-

perience in everything we do and this award is an example of the level of excellence we can reach when those expectations are met,” Ms. Summers said. ‘We’re extremely proud of each member of the Behavioral Health team and of everyone at Lake Shore who supports their efforts.” The program is located at 845 Route 5 & 20, Irving, NY. For more information, call 716951-7238. Lake Shore Health Care Center is an affiliate of Lake Erie Regional Health System of New York (LERHSNY).

Frewsburg Native Honored for Her Volunteerism

Contributed Article National Multiple Sclerosis Society

Frewsburg native, Mary Gabalski, is being honored by a major non-profit for her dedication in the movement to find a cure for multiple sclerosis. The National MS Society Upstate New York Chapter is presenting Gabalski with the Volunteer On the Move award at its Champions On the Move Luncheon in Buffalo on Oct. 19. She is one of ten award recipients being recognized for outstanding achievement in the MS movement. In Chautauqua County alone, there are more than 300 people who are living with MS, and more than 3,300 in the Buffalo-Niagara region. The rate of MS diagnosis in the Upstate New York is twice the national average.

Gabalski helps coordinate programs offered by the Upstate New York Chapter’s Buffalo office, and for the past three years, has helped the organization coordinate Walk MS Jamestown. Walk MS is the chapter’s major fundraiser, which takes place in about 20 Upstate New York communities each year. “Gabalski’s dedication is truly inspirational,” said Christy Missico, Walk MS Campaign Manager. “Because of her involvement and leadership, we had more than 100 participants at Walk MS Jamestown, and more impressively – that site was able to pass its fundraising goal by more than $11,000.” For the past five years, Gabalski has served on the board of the Chautauqua Region

MS Society, and the past three as its president. CRMSS is a small, local organization that serves more 200 people with MS in the Chautauqua Region, including Warren, Pennsylvania, and Western Cattaraugus County, and provides educational programs and social activities that inspire fellowship with others who are living with MS. “Being the child of a mother with MS, I have first-hand and life-

long knowledge of the effects of MS on the family,” said

Gabalski. “So I strive to bring normalcy to the lives of those with MS that I encounter. She attributes the quality of life she shared with her mother and sisters to the loving care and devotion of her father. “MS was not going to stop the Dunning Family from having a normal, every-day lifestyle, and my father made sure of that,” said Gabalski. “We took trips, visited friends and family, went shopping, attended community events, ate dinner out and continued life as if there was no constant presence of the wheelchair in their midst.” Gabalski said her efforts today to raise funds for a cure and support MS patients and their families are spurred by

her devotion to the memory of her mother, but more importantly to assure that her nephew, who also has been diagnosed with MS, will live a long and healthy life despite living with the symptoms of this disease, and the belief that during his lifetime, there will be a cure.On the Move is a nationwide educational and fundraising event that helps increase public awareness of MS and the National MS Society, while acknowledging and encouraging the advancement of philanthropists, community leaders and volunteers. The goal of the Champions On the Move Luncheon is to raise funds and empower each other to create a better future for those living with MS.

“Leaves, Paint, Silk & Sun” – that describes the workshop the Audubon Center and Sanctuary is offering where you can learn to make your own unique silk scarf. On Saturday afternoon, Oct. 20 from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m., artist and writer Kathleen Tenpas will demonstrate how to harness the power of the sun to make a beautiful creation. Using a special kind of silk paint that reacts to the sun, workshop participants will learn to apply it to silk, layer with leaves and flowers, and create a one-of-a-kind wearable artwork. A western Chautauqua County resident for most of her life, Tenpas has been immersed in its farms, fields and woods. She is a poet, photographer and fiber artist, having retired from fulltime dairy farming several years ago. With a Master’s degree in Creative Writing from the MacGregor School of Antioch University, she has written for the Dave’s Garden and All Things Plants websites and the Jamestown Audubon Society. Tenpas’s photographs have been displayed at Jamestown Community College, the Patterson Library, and the Wright Gallery at the Arts Council for Chautauqua County. One of her fiber pieces was part of the Women Create exhibit in the 3rd on 3rd Gallery earlier this year. The workshop is planned for outdoors, so dress for the weather. Ms. Tenpas will bring pressed leaves; participants will gather leaves during the class and are welcome to bring some with them. If inclement weather prevails, the event will be inside: the print technique will work without the sun, but will take 24 hours. If the weather is bad, try to bring a flat surface such as a cafeteria

tray or piece of stiff cardboard approximately 24-36 inches long to keep your scarf flat when you transport it. Class size is limited, so reserve as soon as possible by calling (716) 569-2345 with credit card information or coming to the Center to register and pay. Fee is $45; $35 for Friends of the Nature Center. Additional scarves are $8 each while supplies last; participants who wish to make extra scarves can pay the day of the workshop. Audubon education programs are made possible in part through funding from the Johnson Foundation, the Carnahan Jackson Foundation, the Hultquist Foundation, and the Jessie Smith Darrah Fund.

Legendary Mentalist The Amazing Kreskin to Perform at Opera House

Contributed Article 1891 Fredonia Opera House

Legendary mentalist The Amazing Kreskin – the man who has been called the Nostradamus of the 20th century – will appear in performance at the 1891 Fredonia Opera House on Friday, Oct. 19, at 8 p.m. Opera House Executive Director Rick Davis notes that limited seating remains for this unique performance. With a showman’s flair, a comedian’s wit and the capacities of a bona fide mentalist or thought reader, The Amazing Kreskin has, for more than five decades, has dramatized the unique facets of the human mind – his own! His very name has become an integral part of pop culture through-

somewhere in the theatre. If he fails to find it, he forfeits his fee! In 2008, Tom Hanks produced and co-starred with John Malkovich in “The Great Buck Howard,” which was fashioned after The Amazing Kreskin’s life. For more than 50 years, people have been watching him on TV with regular appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, Live with Regis and Kathie Lee, The Howard Stern Show and The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. In fact, Carson’s “Carnac the Magnificent” was a spoof on Kreskin! Now Kreskin has a new cult following thanks to frequent appearances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Huckabee with Mike Huckabee.  Born in Montclair, NJ, it was during the childhood game “hot and cold” that Kreskin’s remarkable ability to find hidden objects emerged. out the world, invoked reguHis ability to read thoughts larly in comedy clubs, comic expanded, and by his teens strips, print stories and TV he also became nationally shows.

their own board game, more than 16 books, their own theme song arranged by the renowned Skitch Henderson at Carnegie Hall, let alone hundreds of appearances on almost every talk/variety show possible. His performances have been seen all over the world, and he has flown more than three million miles to make them. The Amazing Kreskin has received international recognition for extraordinary predictions often dealing with world affairs. Regarding the U.S. Presidential Election in 2008, he logged the results with a written statement made 11 months earlier, on December 6, 2007; His prediction at the time? President Obama! Also in 2008 on FOX Business News, he predicted the results of the Super Bowl three days before the game … that the Giants would win by three points. The final score? 14-17. A few years earlier in Canada, one month before a national election, he predicted the re-election of Prime Minister Martin, and named the exact amount of seats he would carry. On the day after the election, on National Canadian Television, he reflected that the government could collapse in 14 months. He was off by 5 days. On July 25, 2011, on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, he predicted the results of the 2012 U.S. Presidential Election as well as who the Republican party nominee would be, from among more than a dozen candidates running at the time, including two women. His predictions were locked in a safe currently stored at NBC Studios. Asked recently if the Republican candidate he named is still running, he responded, “I will say that I absolutely believe that I am correct.” Reserved Seating tickets to see this iconic figure in pop culture are $30 ($28 for Opera House members) and may be purchased in person at the Opera House Box Office or by phone at 716/679-1891, Tuesday through Friday, 1-5 p.m. They also may be purchased online any time at www.

‘I Love Lucy’ Mural Completed On Show’s Anniversary Final touches made by artists in Lucille Ball’s hometown

Contributed Article Steve Neilans

Community members and a group of 50 museum visitors gathered to be a part of Jamestown history on Monday morning as Gary Peters Jr. and Gary Peters Sr. put their finishing touches on the largest ‘I Love Lucy’ mural in the world. A portion (a heart-shaped coat button) of the mural had been previously left unfinished so it could be completed on October 15th, the 61st anniversary of the first airdate of ‘I Love Lucy’. The image of Lucy, Ricky, Ethel and Fred on the mural is from the iconic ‘I Love Lucy’ episode, ‘California, Here We Come!’ Over 500 man-hours were put in by both Gary Peters Jr. and Gary Peters Sr. to paint the 1,800 square foot portrait over Brooklyn Square in downtown Jamestown. Almost 30 gallons of paint were required (some of which were donated

by the local Sherwin Williams store) and there are various hidden ‘I Love Lucy’ messages in the mural, including the mural scene’s episode number, 110. This was the fifth ‘Lucy’-related mural completed by Gary Peters Sr. and Gary Peters Jr. in Ball’s hometown of Jamestown, New York. The first ‘Lucy’ mural in Jamestown was completed 12 years ago, and this most recent mural is being completed on the heels of ‘I Love Lucy’ being voted as Greatest TV Show and Greatest TV Comedy of all-time in the nationally-televised Barbara Walters’ special, ‘The Best in TV – The Greatest Shows of Our Time.’ Lucy fans can also help make the lighting of the first colorized ‘I Love Lucy’ mural possible by becoming a ‘Mural Luminary’. By donating towards the illumination project, fans will directly support the lighting of the mural. The names of these

‘Mural Luminaries’ will be listed at To make a donation, contact 716.484.0800 during normal business hours or e-mail To view photos of the event online, visit the Lucy Desi Center’s Facebook page.

The dual attraction is open 7 days a week, Monday – Saturday 10am-5pm and Sunday 11am-4pm. The Lucy Desi Center for Comedy is located at 2 W. 3rd Street in Jamestown, NY. The Lucille Ball Comedy Festival The Lucille Ball Comedy Festival, or “Lucy Fest,” embodies Ball’s vision for her hometown legacy: a celebration of the comedic arts held annually on the weekend closest to her birth date, August 6th. This year’s festival ran from August 1st-5th and featured performances by Paula Poundstone, Lucie Arnaz, Tammy Pescatel-

li, Story Pirates, Billy Gardell from CBS’s Mike & Molly, the best “Lucy, Ricky, Fred & Ethel” impersonators in the world and much more. This year’s festival was brought to you in part by YNN, the TV media sponsor of Lucy Fest 2012. Lucy Fest 2013 will be August 1-4.  Additional information on the festival can be found at According to an economic impact study conducted by Buffalo firm Paradigm Economics and commissioned by the Lucy Desi Center for Comedy and the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation, the 2011 five-day festival saw 13,000 in attendance and had a direct impact of $3.6 million on Chautauqua County.

Both the reception and the exhibition are free and open to the public.

Highlighting the program was the vocal performance of Timber Wolf Inductee, Evin Thomas-Wilson (Ellicottville), who sang The Climb by Miley Cyrus. Performed acappella, her angelic voice lilted inspiring lyrics expressive of the determination necessary to reach goals such as achieving Timber Wolf status: “The struggles I’m facing, The chances I’m taking, Sometimes might knock me down, But no, I’m not breaking” Keynote speaker at the ceremony was Tyler, a student leader from the Timber Wolf Club. In his congratulatory remarks, he reminded the inductees of their leadership

role in the student body, “We are role models on campus and we should continue to promote a positive environment. Confront peers when they’re being negative, and stand up for the kid who isn’t strong enough to stand up for themselves.” The centerpiece of the ceremony is when staff members, who have been selected by the student inductee, take a position on stage, literally and figuratively, “standing behind” the inductee to act as a spokesperson. The staff gives testimony of the inductees’ accomplishments. One such spokesperson was James Butcher, who is the intake Coordinator at the Randolph Children’s Home. His testimony supported the induction of tenth grade student, Savannah (Niagara County), “Savannah is always positive. She is very goal directed- few people have the kind of dedication to a goal that she has.” Equestrian instructor, Stephanie Canon served as spokes-

person for Zach, a residential student from New York City. “Zach, you have proven how strong you are. By becoming a Timber Wolf, you have earned the respect of your staff, teachers and peers. You have gone above and beyond to reach this goal.” Teacher Heather Hyde spoke on behalf of another inductee, Matthew, an eighth grade student (Gowanda). She commended his determination. “He is very driven to be successful. His class work proves that he cares about his education. He sets and achieves goals.” At the close of the ceremony, the newly inducted Timberwolves signed their names on a huge banner bearing the campus norms of: respect, safety, responsibility, and goal direction. This banner bears hundreds of signatures from former inductees over the last ten years. Following the ceremony, a receiving line formed for all guests to express their congratulations.

SUNY Fredonia School of Music Announces First Annual Madrigal Feaste, A Feast For the Senses!

Contributed Article SUNY Fredonia

The SUNY Fredonia School of Music is delighted to announce a new holiday tradition for the community. On Friday, Dec. 7, the School of Music and Department of Theatre and Dance will present the first annual Madrigal Feaste dinner theater performance, held in the newly renovated Williams Center. This traditional 15th-century royal feast and musical program is truly a feast for the senses, with authentic food, costumed performers, rousing music and merriment on a grand scale. The festivities begin at 5:30pm with an open bar, and the seated dinner and music program will begin promptly at 6pm. Tickets are $65 per person and are available at the Ticket Office: 716673-3501 or online at www. “We are excited about offering the Feaste this year, and we hope it will become a new

Fredonia tradition,” said Dr. Karl Boelter, School of Music Director. “This is no ordinary dinner. Full of pageantry, lots of sublimely performed music, entertaining personalities, and a large share of fun, the evening will be memorable and will put you in a great holiday mood.” This collaborative event features talented faculty and students from the School of Music and the Department of Theatre and Dance. The Fredonia College Choir is the featured choral ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Gerald T. Gray, who had the vision for bringing this historical dinner theater tradition to Fredonia. “As a high school student,” commented Dr. Gray, “I had the joy and privilege of performing in a Madrigal Feaste in my hometown, and it was a true highlight of the year. There was something magical about the festive music, beautiful costumes, grand

banquet dinner … all coming together to create something unforgettable. That is what we would like to bring to Fredonia. It is a magnificent way to begin the holiday season, and we hope the community will come out and join us for this unique and memorable event.” Theatre and Dance professor, Dr. James Ivey will lead a troupe of actors for the event, and will also be featured in the all-important role of Master of Revels. “Gerald [Gray] approached me about collaborating on the Madrigal Feaste when I told him that I had directed such events in the early part of my academic career,” explained Dr. Ivey. “I said that I would be willing to help with the ‘dramatic’ portion of the evening, as I teach a class in the form of commedia dell’arte, early opera, and their scenic designs. Five of my students from the class will be extending their classroom experi-

ence into the Madrigal Feaste. I will be playing the Master of Revels, borrowing from my own bag of tricks as the Capitano character from commedia, which lends itself to the Madrigal form quite well.” A particularly special highlight of the evening will be Charles and Shirley Erbsmehl featured in the roles of King and Queen. “It is a joy to have Chuck and Shirley Erbsmehl as our King and Queen,” said Dr. Boelter. “They are great citizens of Fredonia, and avid supporters of the School of Music. Whether helping us to meet our scholarship goals or playing in the New Horizons Band, these are two people who love to participate. We are honored that they will be our first ever official royalty!” Mr. and Mrs. Erbsmehl will don period attire and join the rest of the performers at the royal banquet table on a central stage, while audience members dine and enjoy

strolling singers and various chamber ensembles throughout the evening. Each course of the feast will be heralded with a traditional song, and audience participation is encouraged! At the heart of this festive event is a traditional 15thcentury feast. The School of Music is pleased to announce the royal banquet menu, which includes an open bar at the beginning of the evening followed by a seated dinner and musical program. The meal begins with Pate Terrine, Winter Sausage, Aged Cheese and Crusty Bread, followed by a fanfare heralding the traditional holiday Wassail beverage. A peasant-style soup made with russet potatoes and deep green kale will be served next, followed by an entrée of choice. Choose from the Beef and Stout Pie, featuring slow, beer-simmered beef accented with black currant jam, or slow-roasted Cornish Game Hens with fresh herbs,

lemon and butter finished with natural jus. A vegetarian option is also available; the Vegetables Wellington Redux features fresh vegetables and rich goat cheese baked in a puff pastry wrapping and finished with tomato sauce. The meal is accompanied by wine and beer service, traditional root vegetables and a wild rice blend. A dessert of festive Buche de Noel served with hot coffee and tea is served during the final concert of choral music, bringing the evening to a rousing close. The festivities begin at 5:30pm with an open bar, and the seated dinner and music program will begin promptly at 6pm.

National Fuel Provides Winter Heating Forecast Modest Increase on the Heels of Record Warmth, Totaling $8.40 a Month

Contributed Article National Fuel

While those that forecast the weather are still hard at work determining what the winter will hold for Western New York, officials at National Fuel Gas Distribution Corporation (“National Fuel” or the “Utility”) have good news for their customers based on initial analysis. Given last year’s record warmth, customers may experience a slight increase from a year ago, though heating costs are still near the lowest in more than a decade. The current forecasted seasonal bill for an average residential customer for the winter of 2012-13 (November through March) is $657, compared to last year’s warmest winter on record of $615. Based on an assumption of normal winter weather, National fuel customers could experience an overall seasonal increase of $42 or $8.40 per month. Had last year’s Western New York winter been “normal,” the average residential bill would have been $705, which is higher than what is forecasted for this coming winter season. “Before we talk about what’s ahead, it’s important to look at the winter behind to give proper perspective,” said Karen L. Merkel, spokesperson for National Fuel. “Last winter was 23 percent warmer than normal in fact it was the warmest winter on record – ever. The average bill last winter for the season was $615, a 17.8 percent decrease from the previous winter of 2010-11.” When comparing the outlook for the winter of 2012-13 to historical normal average winter heating bills, the total cost this year is expected to be down from 10 to 30 percent when you look at

the three, five- and 10-year historic averages. If customers are wondering why natural gas heating prices are significantly lower, National Fuel’s cost for natural gas is the lowest it has been in more than 10 years, and this is largely attributable to the abundant supply of domestic natural gas, namely the Marcellus Shale play. The increase in Marcellus Shale gas is positively impacting New York customers by keeping natural gas costs low despite the fact that there is no production here. Shale gas provides the largest source growth in the U.S. natural gas supply, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA). National Fuel’s supply diversification is key to reliability and the Utility’s ability to purchase natural gas at the lowest possible cost while ensuring security of supply. The Utility has a variety of natural gas supply sources and uses a combination of proven methods that allows tremendous flexibility to adjust purchases – including forward pricing, monthly pricing and the use of underground storage. “All of the Northeast market demand for natural gas is currently being met by Northeast production; hydraulically fractured shale gas is supplying Western New York with its natural gas and is significantly contributing to the lower heating bills that our customers are experiencing,” Merkel said. Given what is a very stable price environment for the winter heating season, National Fuel officials realize that there will be customers who will have difficulty paying their monthly heating bills. Customers who may need help managing their

bills should consider joining the budget plan where predictable monthly gas payments can make budgeting easier. The plan divides an estimated annual bill by 12 (or by the number of months the budget plan will be in effect). If interested, please call 1-800-365-3234. The Neighbor For Neighbor Heat Fund will remain open year round in an effort to make heating grants more accessible for the elderly and the disabled. The Home Energy Assistance Program will open next month – on Nov. 19 – and the maximum natural gas grant will be $450. Customers are encouraged to apply as soon as the program opens – by mail, telephone, online or in person. For additional information, please call 1-877-443-2743 or visit the website at “Thanks to a collaborative partnership with Erie County and New York state, more than 87,500 National Fuel customers received a greater proportionate share of HEAP grants than other utilities’ customers across the state,” Merkel said. “This translates to very real financial relief for Western New York-area customers needing assistance paying their heating bills.” National Fuel Gas Distribution Corporation is the Utility segment of National Fuel Gas Company, a diversified energy holding company that is engaged in a number of natural gas-related activities. The Utility provides natural gas service to approximately 500,000 customers throughout 11 counties in Western New York.

Q&A ‘Moving Day’ perfect time to keep cat in Q: After losing a couple of cats (they disappeared and were never found), we decided to turn our remaining cat into an indoor pet, with the idea of adding another cat or kitten after we move after the school year ends. So far, turning Bodega into an indoor cat has not gone well. He is so determined to get out that we eventually give in and open the door. Should we keep trying or just wait until we move? — via email A: The best time to convert a freeroaming cat to life indoors is when you move into a new home. A cat can’t miss territory he has never explored, after all. But even if you’re not planning to move, you can still convert your cat. The change requires resolve on your part and a determination to provide your cat with everything he needs to be happy indoors — good food and fresh water, a clean litter box, a scratching post, toys and, most important, your companionship. Does such a change come easily? Probably not. Cats are highly territorial, and the day you reduce your cat’s territory by cutting him off from the outdoors is the day you’re going to start hearing about it — lots. Your cat will be astonished at your stupidity at first: “Hey, you! I can’t believe you’re so dumb that you forgot how to open the door!” Later, he’s positively outraged at your failure to respond: “The door! The door! Pay attention! I want something.” Don’t give in, no matter what. If you allow the insistent meows and pointed stares to wear you down to the point of opening the door, you’ve taught your cat a lesson you’d rather he didn’t know: “All I need to do is put up a fuss, and I get what I want.” If you try to keep him inside again, he’s going to be even more obnoxious about getting out. Be patient, but firm. Dissuade him from the door with a shot from a spray bottle, and keep him occupied with games and attention. If he likes catnip, get a fresh supply to rub on his toys and scratching post. If you do not open the door, the noisy demands will decrease and eventually end. Within a couple of weeks, your cat will start to settle into his new routines, and you’ll no longer need to worry about the dangers he faces outdoors. — Gina Spadafori Do you have a pet question?

Brightly colored with personalities to match, budgies are wonderful pets. • The birds commonly known as parakeets in the United States are more properly called budgerigars, or just plain budgies. That’s because although all budgies are parakeets, not all parakeets are budgies. Budgies are by far the most popular parakeets and perhaps the most taken for granted. Because of their small price tag and easy availability, they are often treated as throwaway birds — easily purchased, easily disposed of, easily replaced. This attitude keeps people from valuing these birds for their affectionate personalities and appreciating them as lovely little pets. If worked with, some budgies even become very good talkers, albeit with tiny little voices. • An aging population and competitive real estate market has helped to put an end to “no pet” policies in many older apartment complexes, along with an easing of restrictions limiting the size of dogs. The Wall Street Journal reports that new rental complexes are being developed to be not just tolerant of dogs, but welcoming. The recent story cites an architect who says 75 percent of the apartment complexes he designs for construction nationwide will be built with dog parks. • Few beliefs are as widespread and commonly held as the one that incorrectly suggests pets be tranquilized for an airline flight. That might be because many of us would prefer spending our time in the air asleep, and we figure our pets would prefer the same. But the fact is that tranquilizers increase the risk of flying for pets because the medication impairs the efficient functioning of an animal’s body at a time when such efficiency can be essential to keeping it alive. Tranquilizers are not routinely recommended for most flight-bound pets. If you think your animal is the exception, discuss the issue with your veterinarian. – Dr. Marty Becker

Chautauqua County Humane Society Pet of the Week

Pet of the Week This week we are featuring “Marble”. She is an eighteen-month-old short haired tabby calico. She is very sweet, but can be a bit on the shy side until she gets to know you. She prefers to pick her own spot for attention and doesn’t like to be picked up much. Marble was found as a stray and brought to CCHS. Her perfect home would be quiet with a family that would let her take things at her own pace. If you think you might be right for Marble, meet her at the Strunk Road Adoption Center Cat Colony Room. She is ready to have a loving home of her own.

Church Continued from page 8

It was about 1936 the church dropped Episcopal from the name, becoming just Methodist. The first musical instrument was a pump organ, later a piano and on Aug. 28, 1947, a new Hammond organ was dedicated. In December of that year, Christmas programs were celebrated with Rev. V.H. Oviatt at the Dayton Church and a week later at Perrysburg. A community Christmas carol service was held Dec. 19. Sometime during the 1940s, Sunday school attendance dropped off but began to pick-up again in the 1950s. In March of 1954, a diagram of the church showed a plan for a kitchen, dining room, restroom and Sunday School classrooms. Sunday School attendance was again on the rise- from 42 in 1951 to an average of 69. The diagram also showed the sanctuary had three sections of pews with four rows in each section. By June, the dining hall, kitchen and school rooms

1934. Lighting for the church was first done with candles, then oil lamps, then gas and finally with electric. In 1896, stained glass windows were installed to replace the plain glass. By 1899, several changes took place: ladies were instructed to hire a janitor at a price which was not to exceed $40 a year; Pastor C.B. Carr was instructed to have a penny collection each Sunday evening for church expenses; the parsonage was painted and it was decided to build a porch on the parsonage. It was also decided necessary to repair and paint the church. Skipping ahead to the 1930s, the church was refurbished and a new choir room was added at the back of the church. By 1934, there were 78 active members, 13 nonresident members and about 83 in Sunday School. It was noted that the congregation was more than a quarter of the entire village population. By this time, the property was valued at $13,000.

were being built and the congregation pledged to raise more than $15,000 for the project. At this time, parishioners consisted mainly of workers of the three big state institutions in or near Perrysburg- J.N. Adam Memorial Hospital, Gowanda State Hospital and Thomas Indian School. The oldest member of the church was Mrs. Anna Hall, who joined in 1899. The 100thAnniversary Celebration was held with a week of services between Sept. 28 and Oct. 4. A lot happened in the 1960s. In November 1965, the first Kris Kringle Bazaar, which was to become an annual event, was held in conjunction with the Dayton church. The was a two-day affair with about fifteen booths, door prizes and babysitting so adults could shop. The Dayton church served a ham and salmon loaf dinner one day and Perrysburg Methodist to Perrysburg United Methodist. In the summer of 1968 the parsonage, needing

much repair and no longer being used, was torn down. A few years later the area was smoothed, graveled and used for parking space. On Aug. 19, 1970, the Methodist Church at Dayotn burned down folowign a lightening strike. Member of that church transferred to Perrysburg and, in 1973, the church name was again changed. It now became Perrysburg/Dayton United Methodist and has continued to use that name ever since. Many other things transpired in the 1970s. There were 14 pews purchased at a cost of $267 each. This did not affect the total number of people that could be accommodated. At a later date, these pews were fabricated on both the seat and back. The front entrance of the church was changed with the steps now enclosed and making it possible (in the 1980s) to install an elevator, a nursery room and a bathroom. A new furnace installation with three thermostats and a kitchen

unit was started in late 1979 and completed in early 1980. Improvements in the 1980s, included a water system and drain, insulation in the attic, improvements made to the steeple, chimney was patched, work was done on the rear doors, vinyl siding installed, a few new windows put into the social room. Ceiling fans were installed in the sanctuary, and many other things. Throughout the 1990s, programs and improvements continued even though attendance started dropping. In 1998, a campers fund was started to help youth pay to attend church camp. The last time any youth attended camp from our church was in 2005. There were six, and two went to Kingdom Bound. Since then, there have been no youth programs as they grew up and moved away. We would like our church to grow and to have more young families attend. There is no longer a Sunday School, although we have rooms and

supplies for one. If you’re looking for a church home, we welcome you to join us each Sunday at 10 a.m. On Oct. 17, 2004, a special program was held to commemorate the 150th anniversary of our church. In the 2000s, insulated clear class windows replaced all the old ones in the sanctuary and Plexiglas was painted with religious designs to install on the inside so they looked a lot like stained glass, new insulated windows were installed in the fellowship hall and kitchen, new front entrance doors were installed and other major improvements and purchases have been made. Fundraisers that help pay for these project are chicken and biscuit dinner, yard sales and our annual Falling Leaves Bazaar which is in its 36th year. We invite you to join us on Oct. 27 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. for our Falling Leaves Bazzar.

Light Continued from Page 1 “We were trying to get my parents finances in order since we knew my dad would need long-term care,” said Brown. “After Hospice came in, they took a huge financial burden off of my mom.” Because Pike was a Veteran, the VA would pay for all of his long term care, a fact that his prior short-term care social worker failed to mention, but Hospice knew financial assistance was available- having worked with many veterans and their families. As soon as their Hospice social worker found out about his Veteran status, they worked with them to gain much needed financial assistance. As if having such a heavy financial burden lifted wasn’t enough, Hospice stepped in to provide constant professional care for Randy Sr.- and relief for Judy. In November of 2011, Randy Pike Sr. passed away. While

the services that Hospice provided during those three months were no doubt invaluable, Judy continues to be in contact with them. “I still get letters, just asking if I need someone to talk to or to see how I’m doing,” said Judy. “What Hospice did for us was so wonderful. They made it so I didn’t have to worry about him. They’d come to me and say ‘you go out for a few hours. We’ll take care of him.’ At first it was hard, because I felt like nobody could take care of him as well as I could- but that was all in my head. I’d come back and he’d be just fine. I can’t say enough for them.” It isn’t only the lighting of the trees that provide the opportunity for remembrance, though. Prior to the lighting, the trees are decorated with hundreds of bows. For a donation of $5 to Hospice, anyone can have a bow placed on a tree before it is lit. Ad-

ditionally, they are offering ornament gifts for people who give larger amounts. “We want people to know about all Hospice can do for them,” said D’Angelo. “It isn’t just care for someone who is dying. Our slogan is Caring for your family like family - and we mean it. We want to help, and helping people remember with Light a Life is just one way that we can do it.” If you’d like to purchase a bow or ornament in memory of someone- go to www. “We’re also looking for people who want to act as workplace coordinators,” said D’Angelo. “If we can get the word out, we can help more people through Hospice.” To become a workplace coordinator, contact D’Angelo at (716) 338-0033 or

By Chris Winkler Star Sports Editor

When I asked Jamestown head football coach Tom Langworthy for season goals before the year started, the fifth-year head coach calmly repeated a line he had probably told his team all offseason long. “Win all of our home games,” Langworthy said back in August. “Get back to Ralph Wilson Stadium and win a sectional championship.” So far, so good. Jamestown’s win over Clarence last week clinched the league championship and overall No. 1 seed. But even though Langworthy said he’s proud of his guys, they still have a lot more to accomplish. “Our guys deserved to call themselves league champions,” Langworthy said Tuesday. “Nobody will ever be able to take that away from them. And I was happy for them and our staff for that. “But, we have to move on,” he said, knowing what is still at stake. With the Clarence win winning the league, it means if Jamestown can finish off the first goal of winning home games, they’ll be clinching the second goal at the same time. That’s because the Red Raiders earned the No. 1 seed and have homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. That is, until the sectional championship game, which is held at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Nov. 3. Thus, they’re two home wins away

from a return trip to the Ralph. “Home field is huge,” Langworthy said. “This is a big game for us.” That big game will be Friday night at Strider Field against Hutch Tech (1-6, 1-3 AA North). If the Red Raiders can win, they’ll play the winner of Frontier and Niagara Falls (at Niagara Falls Saturday) at home next Friday night. But first things first and that is the Engineers. Hutch Tech won just one

game this against Riverside, but was only outscored 164-92. In addition, they played two of Jamestown’s opponents, Niagara Falls and Kenmore West, pretty tough, including just a seven-point loss to Kenmore West “They’re fast, they have a lot of speed,” Langworthy said. “They can run a pro set and some spread. They’re a big, athletic team.” Still keeping his team grounded will be important. After all, Hutch Tech

was just a one-win team that made the playoffs because of a smaller division. “We’re telling the guys their record in the playoffs is 0-0,” he said. “Just like ours.” What Jamestown has going for them is an exceptional offense that is averaging nearly 32 points per game.

Fredonia State Sports Information

ITHACA, N.Y. — Fredonia State women's volleyball used a balanced attack Saturday to complete a weekend sweep and win the Ithaca Invitational championship in the Ben Light Gymnasium. The Blue Devils improved to 1411 with their four weekend wins, including 3-0 wins Saturday over St. Lawrence and Ithaca. Freshman setter Kelly Edinger was named Most Valuable Player of the tournament, and junior outside hitter Hannah Manning was selected to the alltournament team. Edinger had 27 assists in a 25-23, 25-20, 25-15 victory over St. Lawrence. She also had 31 assists, one solo block, and four block assists in the 25-16, 25-14, 25-17 victory

over Ithaca. In addition, Manning had seven kills in the St. Lawrence match to share team honors with senior Lindsey Olson. In addition, freshman Meredith Smietana and freshman Jessicaa DiChristopher had six kills each, and freshman Paulina Rein had five kills. Defensively, freshman Lauren Hokaj was credited with 17 digs. DiChristopher had two blocks and two block assists, and Smietana had four block assists. Manning had four service aces in the Ithaca match. Rein was the top hitter with eight kills. Olson and DiChristopher had seven kills each. Hokaj added eight more digs. Smietana was credited with one block and six block assists, and DiChristopher added one block and four Continued on pg 2



Things just didn’t go the way Sean Helmer probably envisioned them for the Silver Creek football team in September. A season that was supposed to be one of returning to Class D prominence seem spoiled just two weeks in. They undoubtedly seemed completely over four weeks in. That’s because Silver Creek was 1-3. Sure they were guaranteed to make the playoffs — like every other team in Class D — but after a 37-14 pounding at home at the hands of Portville, the Black Knights 2012 season seemed like a lost cause. Silver Creek went toe-to-toe with Maple Grove — something nobody has been able to do this year — before literally fumbling away a win against Randolph. At that point, they might have been able to chalk it up to just not being their year. But things started to turn around with a 30-20 win over Catt/Little Valley in Week 5. They rode that momentum and spun it into three straight wins and now the Black Knights will host Frewsburg in a playoff game Friday night with a spot in the semifinals on the line. Part of the turnaround has been thanks to senior running back Zed Williams. Williams again went over the 100-yard running mark Friday night against Chautauqua Lake in a 34-0 win. But Williams has also helped anchor the defense that has really turned

it around over the last two weeks. Besides the shutout last week that included a defensive touchdown, Silver Creek’s defense also shutdown Frewsburg in Week 6 by holding the Bears to 12 points. Frewsburg, on the other hand, has struggled since opening the year hot. The Bears have lost three in a row since starting 3-1 and have seen their usually dominant offense sputter since Week 2. Still, they can remind themselves of last year, when they went into Silver Creek in Week 7 and turned their season around and wound up winning three straight to earn a trip to Ralph Wilson Stadium. The winner will move on to play the winner of Randolph and Catt/Little Valley. Elsewhere in the crowded Class D playoffs, undefeated Maple Grove will host winless I-Prep. The Red Dragons, the No. 1 team in the state, are the overwhelming favorites in the league and have shown very few weaknesses. With a win, they’ll meet the winner of the Chautauqua Lake and Portville. That game will be at the home of the fourth-seeded Thunderbirds, who also come into playoffs a bit cold. Dan Greco’s team was 3-0 heading into Maple Grove in Week 4 and haven’t been able to get their offense out of the funk it spun into following a shutout against Maple Grove. Including that game, Chautauqua Lake has scored just 22 points in Continued on pg 2

Kentucky, Fans Revel in Big Blue Madness By Gary Graves Associated Press

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Repeating his take that Kentucky fans are crazy during Big Blue Madness, Wildcats coach John Calipari also acknowledged their justification to go wild. And as a group of Wildcats legends raised the school's eighth national championship banner to the Rupp Arena rafters Friday night, so did fans' enthusiasm. Calipari marked the start of practice by recognizing the latest contribution to Kentucky's proud tradition, hoping it motivates this year's squad to continue it. ''I came here to win national titles for you,'' Calipari said as a capacity crowd at Rupp roared. Kentucky's latest recruits appeared ready to do that. A capacity crowd was introduced to much-heralded big men Nerlens Noel and Willie Cauley-Stein, forward Alex Poythress and guard Archie Goodwin. Transfers Julius Mays and Ryan Harrow also debuted. Cauley-Stein's White squad held off Noel's Blue team 56-55 in the scrimmage. Kentucky opens Nov. 9 against Maryland. ''This is about celebrating the start of the season, but we're still going to celebrate the 2012 national championship,'' Calipari said. ''We're here to celebrate the tradition of this program.'' The celebration of Calipari's first championship as Wildcats coach and expectations for this year's freshmen contributed to an electric atmosphere. Fans went crazy when the arena went dark at 7:30 p.m. and music blared to the entrance of Kentucky's women's team. They were followed by T-shirt giveaways, 3-point shooting contests and a cheerleader performance that built anticipation for the Wildcats' first Continued on pg 4

playoffs with the loss, but still get a home game. Dan Greco’s team has lost three out of four with its offense clearly the main problem. They’ve scored just six points in their three losses and just 16 points in the lone win. The other league champion from Chautauqua County was the Jamestown Red Raiders. Jamestown went 6-1 and clinched the league title in Clarence with a 27-21 win. Perhaps most impressively, the Red Raiders passing game continues to roll. Quarterback Jacob Sisson rallied his team from down 21-7 to throw for three second half touchdowns to give Jamestown a memorable win. Sisson ended the day with more than 300 yards passing and four touchdowns. The big game countywide this past weekend was another installment of the Dunkirk-Fredonia rivalry. Again it was Fredonia taking out their archrivals for the 14th year in a row. But again, it was Dunkirk keeping it close and nearly pulling one out. Fredonia won 21-14, but saw Dunkirk travel into Fredonia territory late in the game, threatening to tie. The loss pushed Dunkirk to 2-5, but the Marauders will play in the Chuck Funke Consolation bowl system. The four team-playoff has them opening up at Medina. Fredonia finished 5-2 and was the No. 3 seed in C North. The Hillbillies haven’t been seeded this low since 2009, but certainly appear to have enough talent to make a run. Fellow county schools Westfield (4-3, 3-2 C South) and Cassadaga Valley (3-4, 2-3 C South) are also in the sectional playoffs and will play on the road to open. Southwestern (2-5, 2-3 C South) and Falconer (1-6, 0-5 C South) will play in the Chuck Funke Consolation bowls. Finally in Class DD, Sherman/Ripley (6-1, 5-1 DD) beat Forestville 47-6 to force a three-way tie on top of the league. Ellicottville won the tiebreaker. County schools Clymer (6-1, 5-1 DD) and Panama (2-5, 2-4 DD) will join Sherman in the playoffs. Forestville (0-7, 0-6 DD) and Pine Valley (2-5, 2-4 DD) will play in the consolation bowls.

County Football Power Rankings — Red Raiders claimed AA South with a 27-21 win over Clarence. QB Jacob Sisson is having a tremendous year. Home games at Strider until Ralph Wilson, if they can win. Last week: 1. This week: Hutch-Tech.

2. Maple Grove (7-0)

— Only five teams went undefeated in Western New York this year. Red Dragons were one of them. Same fate as Jamestown, home games until the Ralph. LW: 2.

4. Silver Creek (4-3)

— That’s three in a row and four out of five for Sean

7. Westfield (4-3)

— Tough loss to Salamanca lost the Wolverines a home playoff game. Now, they’ll head all the way up to Wilson for a first round matchup. LW: 3. TW: at Wilson.

8. Chautauqua Lake (4-3) — T-Birds were 4-1, but have been outscored 69-6 since. Depth was an issue for Dan Greco, perhaps fatigue with tougher schedule is catching up. Still earned home playoff game. LW: 7. TW: Portville.

9. Frewsburg (3-4)

— Similar to Chautauqua Lake, Frewsburg was 3-1, but has now dropped three straight. They got hot in last year’s postseason, though. We’ll see if Terry Gray can replicate that success. LW: 10. TW: at Silver Creek.

10. Dunkirk (2-5)

— No, the Marauders didn’t beat Fredonia. No, they didn’t make the playoffs after losing four straight. But they are in the Chuck Funke Consolation Bowl tournament, a positive step for first-year head coach Rob Genco. LW: Not ranked. TW: at Medina.

JAMESTOWN EARNS POSTSEASON TOP SEED continued from pg 1 seven coming in the past two weeks against Orchard Park and Clarence. His four TD passes last week was a season-high and helped the Red Raiders erase a 21-7 second half deficit. Sisson has also passed for at least 100 yards in each of the seven games of this season. “We started off slow against Clarence and one thing we’re preaching is to set the tone early,” Langworthy said. “Those first eight minutes, first

quarter, we need to come out and really play our kind of football. We can’t wait until the second quarter to play at maximum capacity.” Part of the slow start was because Clarence keyed in on running back Da’Quan Hollingsworth, who until this past week, had eclipsed the 100yard rushing mark five games in a row. But the Red Devils decided to stack the box and it kept Jamestown’s offense stuttering early on. It was

also the first game this season that Hollingsworth was held without a touchdown. Getting him going again might be at the forefront of plans for Langworthy. But his offensive gameplan has been pretty hard to predict with all of the options he has going right now. “Every week, part of our gameplan is to run the football,” he said. “Clar-

ence wanted to take that away from us and we thought it was a better option to throw the ball. But we don’t want to be dictated by other teams. It’s just nice to have both parts of our offense working so well.” So that’s the plan for Jamestown this week. Even though Jamestown’s offense has looked unstoppable at times, Langworthy keeps his weekly goals attainable.

“It’s about executing, it’s never about scoring on each possession,” he said. “We feel like we can score 30 points per game and play solid defense, we’ll be OK. “And that’s what it’s about, to continue doing what we’ve done,” he continued. “It’s playoffs so coaches are more intense, players will be more intense, but we just have to do what’s got us here.”

October Thoughts

Chris Winkler COMMENTARY

It truly is the best time of the year if you’re a sports fan. OK, maybe those hockey fans out there that have grown restless by the day will disagree, but it’s harder to find a time of year that has as much going on as October. Fact is, you’ve had a harder time figuring out what to carve in your pumpkin over finding a sporting event on TV. Of course if you’re like me, you’re having a rather difficult time figuring out which event you’ll have to leave unattended with so much going on. We’ll start in in Major League Baseball. No I am not a Yankees fan. I’m also not very fond of the St. Louis Cardinals or San Francisco Giants. After all each of those three teams has ended my Philadelphia Phillies’ season at some point during the last three years. But, even though those are three of the four teams remaining, I can’t help but be completely enthralled in this year’s postseason. It was fun watching the Yankees struggle with the Baltimore Orioles, a team that didn’t appear to have a single player that represented a major league hitter. Still, the Yankees won a series behind the heroics of none other than Raul Ibanez, a player my Phillies decided not to resign this past year. Boy, was the really rubbing it in. But, we had all five divisional series go the distance. The Cardinals erased a six-run deficit in Game 5. The Cincinnati Reds nearly did the exact same thing before falling short. They were the first NL team to ever lose a series after leading 2-0. And the A’s-Tigers series wasn’t short on drama either. The A’s erased a two-run deficit in what could have been their last inning of the 2012 season. They fell short in Game 5, but that had to be expected with Justin Verlander starting that game for Detroit. Still, even without my team in it, October baseball once again did not disappoint. It’s one of those highly-anticipated events that makes the casual fan realize just how much they love the sport. It’s regular season is probably too long and can seem pretty meaningless, but like NCAA basketball, it’s postseason is high drama and can’t-miss TV. Sure I’m probably going to have a miserable time watching somebody win the World Series, but it likely won’t lack for entertainment. Just let’s keep the games from ending past by bedtime, OK guys? On an ironic opposite end of the spectrum, I haven’t had much interest in watching the Buffalo Bills or the National Football League. Look, I have nothing against the NFL, but when your team stinks year

after year, you tend not to care about what everyone else is doing. After back-to-back embarrassments, Buffalo tried its hardest to find a new way to lose another game. I swear I’m not making this up, but I really think I’m saying that each and every week now. Still, with the Bills driving, and already up a field goal with three minutes and change left in the game, head coach Buddy Nix inexplicably decided to have Brad Smith — his wildcat quarterback — toss a deep ball into the end zone. For the record, Smith was 0-for-1 with his only pass intercepted in 20 games with the Bills before that pass. So, naturally, why wouldn’t you decide to have him throw in that situation? The Bills had no business throwing in the first place with the run game going as well as it was. Still, Gailey decided to throw with his third-string QB. Which brings us to Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Bills are 3-3, but they’re not going anywhere really. They’re 29th in passing yardage and seemed completely hesitant to let Fitzpatrick throw much down the field. They relied on screens and slants and it won’t take a genius to realize you can’t beat too many teams in today’s NFL with that. They’re a mirage, but I do think they can win six or seven games. Hopefully, that’s not good enough to have Gailey think he can keep Fitz. Even more, hopefully it’s not enough to have Ralph Wilson think he can keep Gailey. No, October hasn’t brought hockey like it was supposed to, but I’m a basketball guy anyhow. The NBA preseason has started and truthfully one of my favorite holiday sporting events is near — Opening Night on Halloween. It’s right up there with NBA’s Christmas now that Texas-Texas A&M on Thanksgiving is gone. No, I’ve told you before, I’m just not an NFL guy. Even college football on New Year’s has lost some flavor. And I have to say, even though it’s just not fair, the invention of Super Teams is good for the NBA. This era is about to blow the roof off the Magic-Bird, Jordan-everybody else era’s of the past. Finally, I’ll save my college football plug for another week. But, high school football playoffs begin this week. It’s so much fun to watch teams play in do-or-die games as they all frantically try to accomplish a goal of reaching Ralph Wilson Stadium. We have the benefit of having an NFL stadium in our area and kids from Wilson (on Lake Ontario) all the way down to Frewsburg compete for a memory of a lifetime. Not many kids can say they played on a professional field or for a state title. My state championship in basketball is still one of my all-time favorite memories. Even for me, who has just about all of his favorite teams eliminated, it’s my favorite time of the year. For your sake, hopefully you have some rooting interest, but even if you don’t, it’s going to be pretty hard to miss it over the next two weeks.

The St. Bonaventure Hall of Fame induction maintains the tradition of honoring outstanding representatives of the Bonnies’ athletics heritage at a time when the campus and local communities can join in the celebration. As in 1969, it offers St. Bonaventure University an opportunity to “Unfurl the Brown and White” and express its appreciation to the standard bearers of athletics and University traditions.

ference, another all-SEC national championship game is still a long shot. Oregon's schedule is backloaded with strong opponents and the Ducks will likely be able to close the gap in the computers if they keep winning. The Ducks play Arizona State on Thursday (5-1) and still have games against Southern

California and Oregon State left, and a possible Pac-12 title game. Florida has some tough games left, too, starting Saturday against South Carolina. With half the season still to play, there are plenty possibilities and teams still alive. Teams with one loss, such as sixth-place LSU, seventh-

place South Carolina, ninthplace Oklahoma and 10thplace USC are still very much in the race as long as they keep winning. Oregon State is in eighth, the lowest rated of the unbeaten teams. This is safe to say: If Alabama keeps winning, the Tide will play for its second straight national title, and third in four seasons. Alabama has never before been first in the initial standings. Seven times since the Bowl Championship Series was implemented in 1998, the team that was first in the initial standings went on to play in the BCS title game. Seven times the team that started second played for the BCS title. And only twice has neither of the teams that were in the top two spots in the first standings reached the title game.

''This is exciting and having it in the evening is more convenient. But even if they held it at noon, it would still be electric. We're UK. We're obnoxious.'' Seventh grader Morgan McDonald was planning a party before her father surprised her and friend Halle Cline with tickets to their first Madness. ''He just asked, 'What are y'all doing tonight?' and gave us tickets,'' McDonald said. ''I changed my mind about the party.'' Women's volleyball opened the festivities, the first time a match was held at Rupp. About 8,000 saw Kentucky sweep Mississippi State by 25-18 scores. Spotlights and loud music followed to introduce Kentucky's women, coming off their second Elite Eight appearance in three years. And Wildcats coach Matt Mitchell again showed guts in his dance impersonation by channeling MC Hammer, working the baggy pants and sideways moves, albeit slowly and carefully. ''I just want to thank Hammer,'' said Mitchell, who mimicked Michael Jackson last year.

done for ''about six, seven years'' by his count. It paid off: he was fourth in line, getting his four allotted freebies and giving them to friends despite a bunch of lucrative offers from Wildcats faithful. ''People were offering money right off the bat,'' said Sturgill, wearing a blue ''Tent City Starts Here'' T-shirt. ''I just wanted to see what they'll have. It's going to be a fun night.'' Jody Sturgill was a popular man walking around the concourse, mainly because of the blue Darth Vader costume. The padded outfit has served him well, getting him tickets to many games; several members of the Wildcats' women's basketball team even autographed it. Rather than camp out like most fans, Sturgill got up in line at 2 a.m. that Saturday

morning (without the costume) and got four tickets to his 15th Madness. ''I probably could've stood outside and gotten tickets because folks love the outfit and a lot of them are Star Wars fans,'' the 41-year-old said between posing for pictures. ''But I just decided to get tickets the normal way. I wasn't going to miss this.'' Others just used connections. Tickets for Leslie Delk's two previous visits to Madness came from his uncle and former Wildcat Tony Delk, most recently in 2010. This time he tapped former Kentucky graduate assistant coach Brandon Weems, who hooked him up with a couple of lower bowl seats near the concourse. ''I could've called him (for

''Vilma has not and could not receive a fair hearing as long as Goodell presides. The supposedly fair and neutral arbitrator at the Appeal Hearings has prejudged the evidence, publicly proclaimed his conclusions in advance of the Appeal Hearings, and so vehemently endorsed the allegations against Vilma publicly and in advance of the Appeal Hearings that he could not possibly have acted in a fair and neutral manner.'' Vilma is facing the longest suspension of four players punished in connection with what the NFL has said was a pool that rewarded Saints players with improper cash bonuses for hits that injured opponents. Saints defensive end Will Smith was docked four games, free-agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove seven games and Cleveland linebacker Scott Fujita, a former Saint, one game. Smith's punishment also remains unchanged from

what Goodell initially handed the basis for his rulings. The panel noted that punishments down. Hargrove's suspension was reduced by one game and should not have anything to do with cash paid out of the he was given credit for five Saints' pay-for-performance games missed as a free agent.

Men’s Soccer Battles To Tie On Senior Day Contributed Article

Fredonia State Sports Information

FREDONIA, N.Y. — Fredonia State and Potsdam traded goals before settling for a 2-2 tie Saturday in SUNYAC men's soccer at University Stadium. Tyler Williams had one goal and one assist for the Blue Devils, who trailed by deficits of 1-0 and 2-1. Mike Schreiner finished with 12 saves in the Fredonia State net. The Blue Devils ended the day with a 3-3-1 SUNYAC record. They are 4-11-1 overall. Potsdam returned home 1-3-3 in the SUNYAC and 3-8-3 overall. Potsdam's Alessio Vitale opened the scoring at 5:19 when he converted on a short give-and-go with teammate Tom Benedetto.

Williams scored his fourth goal of the season at 18:04 to forge a 1-1 tie. His shot from beyond the 18-yard line deflected off a Potsdam defender into the net behind goalkeeper Joseph Glackin, who finished with three saves.

The momentum quickly swung back toward Potsdam. Eduardo Figueroa was credited with his fourth goal in two days — including three Friday in a 4-3 win at Buffalo State — when he scored at 20:11 after forcing a Fredonia

State defender into a turnover. Fredonia State's Jay Dry completed the scoring at 32:12. A long pass by Williams set up Dry's bicycle kick and second goal of the season. Both teams had dangerous scoring chances during the second half and into the two 10-minute overtimes. A penalty kick segment was held after the second overtime and Fredonia State earned a 5-4 advantage for post-season seeding purposes only. Williams and five other Fredonia State seniors were recognized during a pre-game ceremony. The Blue Devils have one remaining home game — Oct. 23 vs. Hobart. Prior to that, they face Oneonta and New Paltz in SUNYAC road games next weekend.

Bonnies Drop A-10 Home Opener To Duquesne, 3-1 Contributed Article

St. Bonaventure Sports Information

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. — The men's soccer team (3-10, 1-2) dropped their Atlantic 10 home opener to the Duquesne Dukes (5-8, 2-1) by a score of 3-1 on Sunday afternoon. Dukes leading scorer Joshua Patterson added to his team lead with two more goals today giving him 10 for the season. It was Patterson who got the scoring started in this one when he took a firm cross from Simon Gomez in the 17th minute and fired the shot past senior goalkeeper Abel Bautista. The Bonnies were unable to keep Duquesne away for along as just nine minutes later, Dukes midfielder Karter Sell sent a ball across the front of the net that would be received and spun home off the head of defender Nathan McCann. It was McCann's first score of the season. Emmett O'Connor was able to set up a clean scoring chance for Daniel Iannacito in the

43rd minute that Iannacito finished, but the score would be wiped out by an offside call against the Bonnies. O'Connor would not pick up an assist today putting his pursuit of the all-time assist record on hold for another week. The Ajax, Ontario native is in sole possession of third place on the all-time assists list with 18. The career record currently stands at 22. At the half the Bonnies would trail 2-0. They attempted just two corner kicks to Duquesne's six. SBU, who has had some

recent trouble with yellow cards, were called for just one foul in the first half. Duquesne outshot the Bonnies in the first half 8-7. Abel Bautista made four saves but would be pulled in favor of sophomore goalkeeper Bobby Diaz at the start of the second half. The SBU offense found its legs in the second half as it was able to put constant pressure on the Dukes who played a more defensive style game in the second stanza. SBU had taken every shot in the half until the 66th minute when

Duquesne's Joshua Patterson broke free to score his second goal of the game unassisted. That would give the Dukes a seemingly secure 3-0 lead. Less than a minute later however, a corner kick by Bonnies junior James Reed resulted in a scrum in the box. Brad Vanino was able to gain control and move the ball along to Kaine Moar who pushed the ball across the line for his second goal of the season. SBU would dominate the corner kick and shot tally from then on but were never able to put another ball in the back of the net. Kaine Moar had a golden opportunity in the box in the 84th minute but the Duquesne goalkeeper, freshman Sam Frymier, made an outstanding save to preserve the 3-1 lead. SBU would muster a few more shots but to no avail. The final score would hold at 3-1. The Bonnies will be back in action on Friday (Oct. 19) at 3:00 p.m. against the Flyers of Dayton. SBU did not face Dayton last season.

St. Bonaventure freshman Taylor Cole, meanwhile, was defeated in her quarterfinal Flight B match. In a Flight C qualifying match, Archer bested Niagara's Taylor Cochran, 8-1, but lost to Youngstown State's Carolyn Jesko in the quarterfinal round.

Duquesne Outduels Bona, Claims 3-2 Win Contributed Article

St. Bonaventure Sports Information

PITTSBURGH — After taking a 1-0 lead just 12 minutes into its game Friday night against Duquesne (5-8-2, 1-3-1 Atlantic 10 Conference), the St. Bonaventure women's soccer team (5-91, 2-3 A-10) failed to hold onto the advantage as it dropped a 3-2 contest to the Dukes at Arthur J. Rooney Field. The loss snapped a two-game winning streak for the Bonnies and gave the Dukes their first A-10 win of the season. Freshman Abby Maiello and junior Alyssa Lapp scored Bonaventure's two goals, which came 74 minutes apart. "It was a disappointing result because we played well enough and scored two goals on the road, which is usually enough to win," head coach Manoj Khettry said. "We had the majority of the possession and also the chances, but just didn't convert enough." Maiello's third goal of the season put SBU in front early. Sophomore Brittany Charles sent a cross to Maiello to add to her team-leading assist total, which now stands at five on the campaign. The lead was extremely short-

lived, however, as the homestanding Dukes responded with an Amy Vinopal goal from 25 yards out just three minutes after Maiello's strike. The goal was not only Vinopal's first of the season, but also the first goal scored by Duquesne in its five A-10 games. The two teams went to the halftime break mired in that 1-1 tie, and the score remained that way until the 70th minute when Rachel Baker headed home a cross from Kahli Hale. The eventual game-winner came 13 minutes later when Baker this time used her passing to set up Vinopal's second goal of the game to put an end to a four-game winless streak for Duquesne. Bona got a late goal from Lapp, who scored her second goal of the season in the 86th minute on a shot from about 20 yards out. However, it was not enough as the Bonnies dropped their second game in the last five meetings to their rival. "If we don't lose our concentration and give up a third goal with less than seven minutes remaining, we have a chance to win," Khettry said. "But I have to give credit to Continued on pg 11

Bracket Bonanza

Section VI Playoffs Kick Off Friday By Chris Winkler Star Sports Editor

Class AA

The favorites: Jamestown, Orchard Park. Orchard Park would be the overwhelming favorite had it not been for Jamestown’s Week 6 upset of the Quakers at Strider Field less than 14 days ago. But the win gave Jamestown homefield throughout the playoffs and forced Orchard Park to have to win a road game (barring a Lockport loss) at Lockport in the sectional semifinals. Jamestown, meanwhile, gets two games at Strider Field and avoids both OP and Lockport until at least the championship game. Contenders: Lockport, Frontier. Hard to call divisional champ Lockport a sleeper, but fact is the North Division never does much in this tournament. Besides North Tonawanda — who has since moved to Class A — the North Division hasn’t won a title since Lockport in 2003. Before that, it was 1990, which was also won by the Lions. Frontier hasn’t been to Ralph Wilson Stadium since 1984, but is on the same side of the bracket at Jamestown, who they beat back in Week 5. Sleepers: Clarence, Niagara Falls, Kenmore West. Niagara Falls does have a home game against Frontier, but the Wolverines went 3-4 and were really a shell of what most thought they would be. Plus, even a win would send them to Strider, where they lost 35-7 earlier in the year. Kenmore West has to play at Orchard Park to open and didn’t do all that well with Lockport, either. Clarence probably is the best bet among these three, but the Red Dragons would likely have to win road games over Lockport and Orchard Park just to reach the Ralph. Longshot: Hutch Tech. Longshot might be nice for the Engineers. They went 1-6 with their lone win over winless Riverside. Defense was respectable, allowing just 23 points per game, but the offense never broke 20. Projected winner: Orchard Park. Before the year started, I predicted (in the Star’s football preview) that Jamestown would win AA South, but Orchard Park might get the last laugh on a neutral field. I see a rematch of last year’s title game in the future, but your guess is as good as mine.

JFK has won six in a row since losing to Fredonia, but unfortunately have the Hillbillies on the same side of the bracket. Fredonia has beat JFK up each of the last two meetings. Same fate hits AlleganyLimestone. The Gators are 5-2 and might be the most dangerous team in this league. But they have to beat Fredonia at home in the first round, something they did not do earlier in the year when they lost to Fredonia

13-12. Of course, the Hillbillies have to win road games over both just to get to the stadium and their road struggles have been well evident this year. They’re just 1-2 away from the Orange Bowl in 2012. Sleeper: Westfield. Hard to figure the Wolverines out. They did go 4-3, but a closer look says they didn’t beat anyone that finished over .500. Still Bob North’s squad could give Wilson some

son (if the Lakemen win) in the second round. I like the winner of Fredonia-Allegany Limestone to reach the final.

Class D

The favorite: Maple Grove. The Red Dragons haven’t lost a league game — or a Section VI game — since 2010. Only two teams were within 20 as they outscored opponents 209-49 this year. Contenders: Randolph, Silver Creek. These were two teams that were within 20 of Maple Grove, but they’ll have to knock off each other just for a

Class C

The favorites: none. This is about as wide open as it gets. Defending champion Southwestern surprisingly isn’t here. Runner-up Cleve Hill has to go through an incredibly-tough road slate and perennial power Fredonia has the same road fate. Neither No. 1 seed reached the Ralph last year. Could be the same in 2012. Contenders: Salamanca, JFK, Wilson, Fredonia, AlleganyLimestone, Cleve Hill. You could call Salamanca the prohibitive favorite, but the Warriors were in this position last year and lost in the first round (at home) 20-2 against Akron. Worse yet, they get 5-2 Cleve Hill in the first round, a team that reached the sectional final last year and could have been the No. 1 seed had they won the season finale.

troubles and we already know they can play with Salamanca. Longshot: Cassadaga Valley. The Cougars snuck into the playoffs by beating Southwestern in Week 6. I wouldn’t rule them out against JFK, but the road will only get tougher with Fredonia or Allegany-Limestone after. Projected winner: Salamanca. I truthfully think there’s an argument for six teams, with none more deserving than another. But, my guess is Salamanca because of homefield advantage. Drawing Cleve Hill was a disaster, but that’s a long trip for the Eagles and an even longer one for Wil-

chance at Maple Grove. Still, Randolph is red hot, winning four in a row by a combined score of 172-18. Silver Creek is just as hot winning three in a row by a combined score of 98-32. And nobody played Maple Grove harder than the Black Knights. Sleepers: Chautauqua Lake, Portville, Frewsburg. Chautauqua Lake looked like they could be the No. 2 team in the league, but stumbled late in the year losing to Randolph and Silver Creek 69-6 in the last two weeks. They do get a home game against Portville in the opener, a team they beat at home 12-6 in Week 2. Portville was 3-1 after dismantling Silver Creek in Week 4, but has struggled since. Road game with Chautauqua Lake won’t be impossible, but won’t be easy either. Regardless, the winner has to travel to Maple Grove. Frewsburg also looked like the No. 2 but have lost three in a row, all by double-digits. They’d have to beat Silver Creek and Randolph on the road before getting to the Ralph. Not easy, but not impossible. Longshots: Catt/Little Valley, I-Prep. Combined, they were 0-12 against the rest of the league. Near impossible road games to start won’t help the cause either. Projected winner: Maple Grove. How can you not go with the Red Dragons after the season they had? I think they’ll cruise into the Ralph before getting a stiff game from Silver Creek.

Class DD

The favorites: none. As predicted in the Star’s high school football preview, a three-way tie on top of Class DD has left this league as much of a question mark as any other in Section VI. The top three are all legitimate teams and both Sherman and Clymer own wins over Class C playoff teams. Contenders: Ellicottville, Sherman, Clymer. Ellicottville’s lone league loss was in overtime to Clymer. They came from behind to beat Sherman and haven’t really had a problem with anyone else besides a nonleague loss to St. Mary’s. Sherman crushed Clymer in the opener (at home) and receives that same game in the first round. They could have went 7-0, but stumbled late against Ellicottville, but struggled with Franklinville after that as well. Clymer’s the hottest team, winning six in a row since the 32-0 loss to Sherman. They also went on the road and beat Panama in the first round last year, so they’ve certainly been here before. Sleepers: Panama. Sure, the Panthers went 2-5 and have lost four in a row, but they really played Sherman tough in Week 4. Plus, all they have to do is win one game to get the Ralph for the first time since 1984 and is something that slipped away last year in the first round. They’re more than motivated. Longshots: none. Projected winner: Sherman. I’ll go with the Wildcats, my preseason pick. They’ve never been to the Ralph and have a home game against Clymer to accomplish that. Plus, I like their chances for revenge against Ellicottville.

Bills Re-Sign DE Merriman To Bolster Banged-Up D

By Nick Mendola Associated Press

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. ike (AP) — Shawne Merriman is am back in Buffalo after the Bills d re-signed the free-agent passanrushing star to bolster their -6 banged-up defense. y st The Bills (3-3) announced the signing Monday, after return-6 ing home from an extended West Coast trip, and a day after a 19-16 overtime win at Arizona worked them into a n four-way tie for first place in the AFC East. auos- ''You can never have too her. many guys that we believe s to can rush the passer,'' coach Chan Gailey. ''We'd rather not go into a game with just three e defensive ends.'' ee its. Merriman returns to the Bills two months after the team he cut the three-time Pro Bowl selection in part because it wanted to develop several younger players. Buffalo's priorities have since changed ey, after the team's depth has been depleted at defensive 2 end. Veteran end Chris Kelsay ue. said the adjustment will be es easier since Merriman knows se the territory. ''Shawne's a great dude,'' Kelsay said. ''He's a guy who came right in and fit well (with) a the great personality. We don't son have a lot of egos on this team and he fit right in, so it's good re to have him back.'' Mark Anderson is out indefinitely after he required

surgery last week to repair a left knee injury. Veteran defensive line Spencer Johnson has missed the past two games with an ankle injury. The 2005 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, Merriman earned the nickname ''Lights Out'' while generated 39 1/2 sacks through his first three seasons before injuries slowed his production. Merriman combined for just six sacks, playing in just 23 games over his past four seasons. The Bills that take the field will have momentum on their side despite scrapping their way through an ugly road win in Arizona. Left for dead in the desert after two blowout losses in which they were outscored 97-31 overall and allowed a combined 1,201 yards over the two-game stretch, Buffalo battled back to .500 against the Cardinals and further crowded to top step of the division. ''We all played hard, that's

the biggest think to look for,'' defensive tackle Marcell Dareus said. ''We're working towards being a better team. Just finishing the game for the most part.'' The much ballyhooed pass rush lived up to its preseason hype Sunday, sacking the Cardinals six times and keeping quarterbacks Kevin Kolb and John Skelton on the run. Mario Williams had received considerable heat for a slow start after signing a $100 million contract in the offseason, but turned that temperature on the Cardinals with 2 sacks and a number of hurries. ''That was the best game our defensive front has played all year,'' Gailey said. ''I really believe that if we can keep working, we can create those types of problems for people week in and week out.'' Kelsay concurred. ''They really gave us the freedom this game to just line up

and play,'' he said. ''We had a really simple game plan. We knew what we had to do.'' The Bills needed the strong defensive performance after a questionable Wildcat passing play for Brad Smith yielded an interception late in regulation that allowed the Cardinals to drive for a game-tying field goal. ''We thought we had a chance to hit the home run and ice the thing right there,'' Gailey said. ''In hindsight? Bad call.'' That's all in the past as the Bills prepare for a Tennessee team that is 2-4 and should be well-rested after beating Pittsburgh late Thursday. Wide receiver Stevie Johnson said the opponents aren't the issue. It's the Bills' effort that will dictate their success. ''When we play a full game, we can play with anybody,'' Johnson said. ''It was an ugly win. ''But we got it.'' NOTES: In addition to the Merriman signing, Buffalo also resigned safety Delano Howell and released defensive tackle Jay Ross and center David Snow. ... Gailey said Monday that Spencer Johnson and starting right guard Kraig Urbik both have chances to be available Sunday. ... The Bills will welcome fifth-round draft pick and cornerback Ron Brooks back to practice on Wednesday from the injured reserve list. ... The win at Arizona was Buffalo's second on the road this season. They won just two total away from home last season.

Hasselbeck To Start His 3rd Straight vs. Bills




By Teresa M. Walker Associated Press

as NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The — Tennessee quarterback Matt Hasselbeck will start his and third straight game when the ass Titans visit Buffalo on Sunday, and injured Jake Locker could be healthy enough to return in a week. Doctors checked Locker's left, oss non-throwing shoulder again r. Monday. o Coach Mike Munchak said he didn't have the results, but that - the quarterback is healing. ''I wouldn't think he'd play this week,'' Munchak said. ''He's nd doing better, much better than n he was last week at this time. d He'll probably start doing more ed activity this week. But again, ut we'll just have to wait and see le how he does the next couple days, how fast he comes along. I would imagine it would take him another week.'' Locker first hurt his shoulder d in the season opener against st New England, and he dislocated the shoulder Sept. 30 in . a loss at Houston. Munchak said they are lucky enough to have Hasselbeck available to 5 start and allow Locker to heal w, without rushing him back. r- Hasselbeck led the Titans (2-4) s, to 10 points in the final 4:19 one last week to beat the Pittsburgh the s ay . how players on team approach ted. subsequent games. Vilma and the NFLPA initially n. filed suit in July, but the matter my was placed on hold when the ever NFL appeal panel vacated the e a initial player suspensions on r technical grounds and the disciplinary phase started over. nge Much of the content of Monday's legal filing outlines

Steelers 26-23. That doesn't mean there is a quarterback controversy in Tennessee. ''If he was healthy enough to suit up, we'd feel he's healthy enough to play,'' Munchak said of Locker. The Titans worked out for an hour Monday after a weekend off following their muchneeded win. Locker wasn't available in the locker room after the session, and Hasselbeck only talks once a week when starting. Munchak said Locker wanted to play against Pittsburgh and the Bills (3-3). ''But he physically can't, so he's all in now for Matt to do well because he knows if Matt does well, the team does well and then hopefully at some point Jake will be coming back and leading this thing and obviously we want to be in the playoff hunt,'' Munchak said. ''It's going to take a group effort to get that done.'' Before the Titans can even think about being in the hunt for a playoff spot, they have more immediate concerns of trying to win consecutive games for the first time this season. They last won consecutive games at the end of last season against Jacksonville and at Houston to finish with the franchise's first winning

record since 2008 at 9-7. Munchak said they now have a chance to do something at 2-4. ''We have a lot of work ahead of us believe me,'' Munchak said. ''There's no reason we can't put some wins together. If you do that, then you work yourself back into it and that's the good thing is that there's still a chance to work yourself back into it if you can win four, five games in a row, which is a big if. We haven't done that yet. We haven't won two in a row yet.'' The Titans still have given up more points (204) than any other NFL team. The running game is mired in last place, even though Chris Johnson has run well in two of his past three games. He had his best performance ever against Pittsburgh, running for 91 yards. Still, they feel revived after the much-needed win and the chance to rest over the weekend. Receiver Nate Washington said every offensive player knows they cannot be complacent, not after the plays they didn't make against Pittsburgh. He also sees mistakes that still must be corrected. ''We can't overlook it as just another weekend off for a little time to sit at home,'' Washington said. ''We have to take advantage of this to get our bodies back and make sure

our minds are where they're supposed to be.'' Tight end Jared Cook, who spent much of the weekend sleeping, said the Titans must remember how much it hurts to lose compared to the great feeling when they win to keep that winning spirit. He also agrees with Washington that the offense executed much better against Pittsburgh. ''It's just a matter of keeping a push and keeping it moving and making sure we all stay on the same page and continue to execute because when we execute, there's nobody I feel like can stop us,'' Cook said. Notes: Tommie Campbell will miss the Buffalo game. Munchak said Campbell, who hurt his left ankle covering a punt return, remained in a walking boot Monday. ... DT Jurrell Casey (shoulder) is expected to practice Wednesday, though he could be limited. ... LB Colin McCarthy (right ankle) also is expected to practice Wednesday after playing every defensive snap for the first time this season against Pittsburgh. ... Rookie S Markelle Martin (right knee) will practice Wednesday, starting a three-week window for the Titans to decide whether or not to active the sixth-round draft pick from Oklahoma State off the physically-unableto-perform list.

Byrd's Picks Help Bills Top Arizona 19-16 In OT By Bob Baum Associated Press

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — A record kick tied it for Arizona, a tipped one kept Buffalo in the game, and Rian Lindell's chip shot field goal from 25 yards gave the Bills an improbable victory. The three kicks took place in the final frantic moments of a typically wacky NFL game in the desert Sunday and sent Buffalo on its way home with a 19-16 win after two weeks of embarrassing defeats. Jarius Byrd's second interception of the game set up Lindell's game-winner 3:50 into overtime, which ended Arizona's home winning streak at eight games, one shy of the club record. Byrd, limited in practice last week with a chest injury, picked off a pass from John Skelton, who had replaced justice permits a person to be the injured Kevin Kolb, and punished without having had returned it 29 yards to the the opportunity to substanArizona 6. tively review, investigate and Arizona's Jay Feely made a question the evidence and franchise-record 61-yard field the sources of such evidence goal with 1:09 left in regulaagainst him or her, and then tion to tie it 16-all.

''You don't think there is any way a guy is going to make a 61-yarder,'' Gailey said, ''and then you think for sure he is going to make the short one and he doesn't.''

It looked like another stunning Arizona comeback when Feely, whose previous long was 55, nailed the 61-yarder, the third 60-yard plus kick in the league this season — an NFL record.

Steelhead Fishing Starting To Pick Up By Steve Peacock Star Outdoors Writer

Fishing on Lake Erie is pretty much over for this year. Oh, there might be an occasional diehard out there but most people have their gear all put away for winter. It also becomes hard to get a good windless day this late in the season. I think you are probably better off changing gears and targeting the fish that run up the tributaries to spawn. In our area brown trout and steelhead are the two main species that run our local

creeks. The guys fishing on the Cattaraugus Creek have been catching fish but it has been slow and steady. I have heard reports of fish being caught from the mouth near Sunset Bay all the way to Springville. I haven’t heard of a single fish coming from any other local stream yet, we still need more cold water in the creeks. Right now is a great time to go fishing in the lower Niagara River. The river fills up with large fish from Lake Ontario looking for a place to spawn. The gear that we used to catch our local steelhead is not enough to take on the

salmon that are in that river. One of these days I’m going to make the drive and go fishing there. I talk quite a bit about hunting for deer but let’s not forget about all of the other hunting opportunities around here. Most all of the small game seasons are open right now. The turkey and water fowl seasons both open near the end of October. If you like to hunt furbearers, that season also opens near the end of October, the exception is Coyotes, which opened at the beginning of the month.

Lake Erie Fishing Hotline Contributed Article Department of Environmental Conservation

Cattaraugus Creek remains the top option for steelhead anglers, with a current flow of about 160 cubic feet per second and emerald green coloration. Decent numbers of steelhead are spread out up through Gowanda, however catches are better in the lower section. All other Lake Erie tributaries are very low and clear. Few steelhead have moved in and settled into the larger holes (lower sections), but are very finicky. Lake Erie steelhead commonly hit natural baits like egg sacs and worms, flies such as egg imitations, streamers and bugger patterns, and lures like minnowtype stickbaits and in-line spinners. Anglers can also target steelhead from the Cattaraugus Creek breakwall or off creek mouths by casting spoons, spinners and stickbaits. Windy weather has kept most anglers off Lake Erie this week. Previously, anglers saw excellent yellow perch catches

between Cattaraugus Creek and Sturgeon Point in 65-70 feet of water. Dunkirk anglers saw decent catches in 60-70 feet of water.

Chautauqua Lake

Fall is a good time to target muskellunge on Chautauqua Lake. Some musky anglers troll along weed edges in 1016 feet of water, while others target suspended musky 20-25 feet down over 30-35 feet of water. Trolling with large, 51/2 to 8 inch minnow-type stickbaits (especially perch pattern) is a good bet. Fishing with tube jigs, plastics, crankbaits or live bait (golden shiners, leeches, crayfish) near weed edges are good bets for hungry bass.

Upper Niagara River

Smallmouth bass prospects are good in the upper river. Traditional baits like golden shiners, crayfish, tube jigs and plastics work well when drifting with a bottom-bouncing rig along weed edges. Cooling river waters usually turns on the muskellunge fishing in the river as well. Drifting with large 8-10 inch tube jigs or casting large stickbaits are good bets around Strawberry

Island and near the Huntley power station. Boaters at the head of the river are catching a mix of bass and walleye.

Surplus Broodstock Trout Stocking

Randolph Fish Hatchery has been conducting their annual fall stocking of broodstock trout in Cattaraugus and Allegany Counties. All breeder trout stocked are over 2 years old and are stocked in waters where trout fishing is permitted year-round. The following waters have been stocked with surplus broodstock trout and may get more if they are available: New Albion Lake, Case Lake, Harwood Lake, Quaker Lake, Red House Lake, Allen Lake, Birch Run Pond and the Genesee River (from Wellsville to PA border). If you need more fishing information or would like to contribute to the fishing report, please call or e-mail Mike Todd (716-851-7010; or Jim Markham (716-366-0228; The fishing hotline can also be heard at (716) 679-ERIE or (716) 855-FISH.

Crosby Optimistic NHL Season Will Be Salvaged NHL Schedule: What Would Have Been…

Associated Press

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Sidney Crosby wanted to spend last Thursday watching the NHL drop the puck on the 2012-13 season while prepping for the Pittsburgh Penguins' opener the following night. Instead, the most recognizable face in hockey planned to flip on the Pittsburgh Steelers and wonder when the NHL lockout will end so he can get back to work. ''It's not something you want to be doing in October, you'd rather be starting the season,'' Crosby said. ''It is what it is. You can't really do much but sit and wait.'' And wait. And wait. While NHL owners and players' representatives met in New York trying to get past an impasse that has already wiped out the first two weeks of the season, Crosby and a handful of teammates went through drills in a quiet suburban Pittsburgh ice rink. There, in front of a dozen curious onlookers — including one child wearing a skeleton t-shirt and three female fans videotaping with their noses pressed to the glass — the Penguins captain tried his best to put a positive spin on hockey's second work stoppage in less than a decade. Wearing a black jersey with the NHL Players Association logo on it, the sport's most popular player insisted the league hasn't squandered all of its goodwill. ''It's still early,'' Crosby said. ''There's still time for decisions to be made and time to make sure nobody does something they're going to regret.'' Crosby, who signed a 12-year, $104.4 million extension over the summer, remembers being in the junior ranks when the league wiped out the entire 2004-05 season. He doesn't quite have the same pessimism now, but allows a substantial gap remains between the two sides. ''I think we're willing to make a deal,'' Crosby said. ''I don't think there's a deal to be made right now. There's their deal and then there's our deal and they want their deal.'' So Crosby will continue to work out and stay ready. Un-

like some of his teammates — including reigning league MVP Evgeni Malkin — he has no plans to play elsewhere this season. Crosby has only caught the highlights of Malkin's play in the Russian KHL but added his good friend ''looks ready to go'' when or if the NHL reopens for business. The 25-year-old Crosby believes he'll be ready too. He's become the de facto organizer of the somewhat informal player workouts. The numbers have fluctuated over the last month. There were eight Penguins in attendance on Thursday, including veterans Pascal Dupuis and Matt Cooke. Former Penguin Mark Recchi, who retired following the 2011 season as a member of the Boston Bruins, also got in some time. Crosby has enjoyed the reunion with his former linemate, though he'd prefer to be around more familiar — and younger — faces in the near future. Following two basically lost seasons in which he dealt with concussion-like symptoms, Crosby insists he's as healthy as he's ever been. He spent last week in Vail, Colo., getting in some altitude training with about 18-20 other players and was bumped around quite a bit without any issues.

He certainly looked fresh dashing up and down the ice on Thursday, his white helmet with the No. 87 on the back of it a blur as he skated nimbly around a series of pylons and more than a few teammates. Crosby is eager to wipe away the taste of last spring's ugly first-round playoff exit when the Penguins were thumped by the rival Philadelphia Flyers in six games. As anxious as he is to go after a second Stanley Cup, he's also aware there's something more at stake than his own personal goals. That's why he hasn't gotten frustrated by the lack of progress in discussions, and in a way the turmoil he's dealt with over the last 20 months has helped prepare him for the current labor stalemate. ''When I went through all that stuff, a lot of things you can't control, you just have to be patient,'' he said. ''It's kind of a similar scenario here. You just have to be positive and hope for the best.'' Crosby would like to believe the owners are negotiating in good faith. He's heard talk about a predetermined deadline the owners have to not get serious about things until midNovember. He'd like to believe that's not the case.

''We had a good idea it wasn't going as fast as we would have liked but I don't think anyone gave up being positive,'' he said. ''You just realize negotiations are going to take a little time. If anything you'd like to see a little progress and we haven't seen any of that.'' So Crosby will continue to show up four days a week to stay in shape, hoping he can scrounge up enough teammates to get something resembling a hockey practice in. It's not ideal, but he's not quite ready to tell agent Pat Brisson to start seeking out a place for him to moonlight overseas while the NHL irons things out. ''If there's a point where I think that I'm not going to be ready to start the season unless I go and play somewhere else (I might),'' he said. ''But we're not to that point yet.''

''It's incredible,'' said Cory Martin, the 26-year-old son of Rick Martin. ''I'm still looking at it. You can see I can't take my off it. I never got to see him play. I wasn't born when he was playing.'' Perreault and Robert also mentioned their late teammate. ''Our mission here was to put a great show on the ice for the Buffalo fans,'' said Perreault, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1990. ''The French Connection was something very special. We had some great years together. It's a great honor. It's a very special night. We sure miss Rico, but it's part of life.'' Said Robert: ''It's difficult. Every time there is something that involves Gilbert and I and we talk about the French Connection, he's missed. He was the one who brought this weather because this morning it didn't look too good.'' Along with the statue, the plaza features five brick columns that are covered in plaques bearing the names of all 401 Sabres alumni. Each column represents a decade of Sabres history and they all support a pedestrian walkway, which features a pictorial display of players throughout the franchise's history.

BILLS’ OT WIN continued from pg 9 time since he sprained his left ankle in the season opener, an injury that cleared the way for Kolb to reclaim the starting job. Skelton's fourth-down pass to Larry Fitzgerald got Arizona close enough to try the record kick, which cleared the crossbar with room to spare. ''He told me he could make it,'' Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt said. ''That's why we kicked it there on fourthand-10. I thought our best option was for him to kick it with the way he was feeling.'' The Bills then punted, and in an attempt to keep the ball away from Patrick Peterson, Shawn Powell's 30-yard kick went out of bounds at the Cardinals 47. Skelton's 28yard pass to Fitzgerald set up the 38-yard try. But Feely, who earlier made two from 49, was thwarted by Carrington's tip. ''It was scary,'' Carrington said. ''I thought it was still going to go in because the ball still kept on going but then hit the post. My heart dropped for a second.'' The Bills took the overtime kickoff, advancing to the Arizona 35 with the help of a pass interference penalty against Sam Acho. But Buffalo chose to punt. The ball nearly was downed at the 1, but was ruled a touchback, setting up the ball at the 20. From there, Skelton's pass into traffic was intercepted by Byrd. Two plays later, Lindell had just his third field goal of the season — and the Bills had

gained some redemption following to miserable weeks. Ryan Fitzpatrick, who grew up in nearby Gilbert as a Cardinals fan, completed 18 of 32 for 153 yards, but the Bills did most of their damage on the ground. C.J. Spiller carried 12 times for 88 yards, including a 10-yard touchdown run. Fred Jackson gained 53 yards in 16 attempts, with a 1-yard scoring run. Kolb was 14 of 26 128 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He scrambled five times for 66 yards. Arizona's sputtering ground game, without Ryan Williams after he was knocked out for the season with a shoulder injury, got a surprising day from William Powell, who gained 70 yards on 13 carries. Fitzgerald caught six passes for 93 yards, including a 9-yarder for a touchdown. In the process, he topped 10,000 yards receiving for his career even though he's 10 months shy of his 30th birthday. Skelton, who beat out Kolb for the starting job in the preseason, was 2 of 10 for 45 yards. The Bills stayed in Arizona to practice last week after the 45-3 loss in San Francisco. ''We were away from the distractions and it was just us here in Arizona,'' Byrd said. ''It was a chance for us to soul search, get corrected what we needed to get corrected without the distractions of being at home. It was great for us mentally.''

SBU SOCCER continued from pg 7 Duquesne — they put away their chances and we didn't." Bonaventure dominated the opening 15 minutes of the game prior to Duquesne's equalizer as they attempted the match's first five shots. The second half started much of the same way as the Bonnies attempted the first four shots of the stanza. In fact, the Dukes first shot on frame came on their goal in the 70th minute. "Duquesne's first goal was scored against the run of play and we lost our rhythm," Khettry surmised after. "The same thing happened in the second half. We were getting the majority of the chances and had the lion's share of possession, but we gave up another goal against the run

of play." Senior Katie Kerkman made her third straight start in net for the Brown and White and allowed three goals while making three stops. Her counterpart, Devon Tabata, stopped six Bonaventure shots on the night. The Bonnies held a 16-8 shot advantage, but the Dukes put six of theirs on frame (75 percent) compared with eight for the Bonnies (50 percent). St. Bonaventure returns to action next week when it heads to Ohio to battle Dayton on Friday night at 7:30. The Bonnies then conclude their weekend in the Buckeye State with a matchup against Xavier on Sunday at 1 p.m.

Adults who are interested in returning to college to complete their bachelor’s degree should investigate the ADVANCE Program at D’Youville College. The ADVANCE Program offers adults the opportunity to complete a bachelor’s in business management in as little as 18 months while attending classes only one night per week (classes are held 6-10 pm), and most students only take one class at a time. This is all without disrupting the student’s personal and professional life. The ADVANCE Program is designed with the adult learner in mind. Classes are smaller, taught in a seminar format, and only last five weeks. Additional required college credits

can be earned through several alternative methods. Internet Courses, Internships, Challenge/Clep Exams or courses offered other than during evenings are available to students who transfer in fewer credits but still want to complete their degree within a brief period of time. “Your entire bachelor’s degree can be earned during the evening,” said Dr. Dion Daly, business department chair. The ADVANCE program emphasizes leadership in the business environment. Because so many companies are undergoing changes, managers must be trained to lead the workforce through periods of disruption. “Similar to the way business is conducted, our students get the

necessary tools to advance in today’s workforce. Courses are taught by professors with experience in business and management, so students get a unique combination of practical theory and real-life experience in each course. The seminar format also allows adult learners to share their own professional experiences,” said Jackie Milbrand, ADVANCE Program Counselor. Another example showing that D’Youville has the adult learners needs in mind is students are not required to meet once a week in study groups. “It’s difficult to be away from home a second night of the week to meet with a study group” says Dawn, a current ADVANCE Student. “We can still meet as a group when we need to, but

it’s optional, not required like in other programs.” The tuition cost for the ADVANCE Program is very competitive with other local adult degree completion programs, and financial aid is available for qualified students. Payment options are also available for those looking to finance their education. Adults interested in finding out more about this unique leadershipbased program should contact the ADVANCE Office at 716-829-8090 or visit D’Youville’s website at Classes begin in January. Information Sessions: Tuesday, November 6, 2012 Tuesday, December 4, 2012 To register for an information session or to

This year, SUNY Empire State College graduated its largest class with more than 3,400 graduates. Unlike many other colleges, our graduates tend to be older (average age 36) and are more likely to have been holding down demanding jobs, raising families and participating in community activities while they learned. That’s because Empire State

College was designed for motivated learners. You can study independently, either through oneto-one studies with a faculty mentor at one of our 35 New York state locations, online, or a combination of both. You also may take study groups with your peers or cross register at another college. At Empire State College, the best way to learn is determined by you. You will be guided by your assigned SUNY faculty mentor who will


assist you in designing a degree program that fits your needs, identifying your prior college-level learning, and helping you to plan how to fulfill the academic requirements you will need in order to complete your degree. With your mentor’s help, you will tailor a degree program that meets your needs and aspirations. Empire State College also provides college degrees for our active and returning men and women of the military. In 2012, nearly 200 military men and women earned degrees to help them advance in their military careers or transition to civilian jobs. The college’s Office of Military and Veteran Education employs specialists, often former military themselves, to help our active and returning service members plan a degree program that is rigorous, yet which they can complete during their deployments or stateside.

Mentoring equals Personalized Education You’re unique … your education should be too. SUNY Empire State College mentors help you design the degree that’s right for you. They respect your knowledge, value your experience, and help you realize your goals. And, with study options that include face-to-face mentoring, study groups and online courses, you choose how and when to study. So why wait? Get started today. Apply by November 1 for the next term.

Utica College is a private, comprehensive college located in central New York. The College features many of the advantages of a large university – such as excellent academics and highly accomplished faculty – with the intimacy and very personalized student experience of a small private institution. The College’s academic program integrates liberal and careerrelated learning in a highly student-centered

and teaching-focused environment. Utica College’s undergraduate programs are organized within three schools: the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Business and Justice Studies, and the School of Health Professions and Education. Within these three schools are 37 undergraduate majors, 20 master’s degree programs, two professional doctoral degree programs, and a number of preprofessional and special programs. The College’s programs are accredited by the Middle States Association of

Schools and Colleges. Since its founding in 1946, Utica College has been a dynamic center of higher learning, with signature programs, innovative research, and a global outlook that has earned it an international reputation for thought leadership in economic crime management, health professions, and other fields. Utica College’s 128-acre primary campus is located in a predominantly residential section of west Utica, approximately three miles from downtown Utica and

in close proximity to a historic performing arts center, a highly acclaimed fine arts center, and other amenities. The campus houses the Frank E. Gannett Memorial Library, the Ralph F. Strebel Student Center, seven residence halls, and administrative and academic buildings. Academic facilities include F. Eugene Romano Hall, a stateof-the-art learning center for programs in the health professions, and a brand new facility to house UC's worldrenowned Economic Crime and Justice Studies programs.

JCC Even before students decide on a school for their secondary education, area colleges have their success in their sights. The motto of Jamestown Community College, “Caring, Challenging and Connecting,” is more than just a slogan, as the school and its officials strive to give students the tools they will need to ensure their success during their first year and throughout their college experience and beyond. Eileen Goodling, vice president and dean of student development at Jamestown Community College characterizes the preparation as “an organized and meaningful trajectory” as students are paired with individuals and the resources that will help to ensure a positive college experience. A large orientation at both the Jamestown and Cattaraugus campuses

before the official start of the semester helps students get to know each other and ultimately make connections and increase their comfort level. “Our goal is to connect them with the organizations, faculty members and get them mixing with each other,” says Goodling. Starting the Sunday before the start of classes and a day after residence hall students move on to campus, the full-day orientation has both small and large group activities with the objective to break the ice. “Some of it is for them to see our faces and we want to be able to say ‘if you need anything, come talk to me.’ ” By the end of the day, students have made important connections with new friends and faculty, to get them started on the pathway to success. Once classes begin, an extended, five-week orientation begins called the student success seminar, intended to give students the skills necessary to be more

successful in college. Some of the topics covered include campus life, the importance of being involved in clubs, organizations or student government. Other areas may include how to use the reference library, or the on-line learning sources, or what they may expect from the health center or career counseling. Students are always expected to think about their goals, even if those goals change says Goodling. “The job of the college is to help the students understand their aptitudes and interests and to move students along the trajectory of their careers or their transfer plans,” says Goodling, “we empower them to be responsible for their own experience.” SUNY at Fredonia According to David Herman, vice president for student affairs at SUNY Fredonia, the college is helping to connect with perspective students on their website through social media. “When students

apply to Fredonia there are blogs from other students and from and a admissions department representative.

“Approximately 940 people use the site, Herman says where they can ask questions, follow the activities of

Hilbert College has made curricular changes in their business program to create new B.S. degrees in business management to reflect the current and future needs of what companies and organizations are looking for in the managers. The program, originally geared towards

business administration, now focuses on building management knowledge, skills and competencies critical to meeting the challenges and opportunities of today’s complex and global economy. The degree places an emphasis on research, quantitative and statistical analysis, information technology, communication and

leadership skills, ethics, global business, and cross-culture management. Business management students may now take a focus on Global Business Management (GBM) within the program, which provides them with a unique skill set for global business employment. GBM is designed to prepare students with its strong culture and language component, for careers with multinational and domestic corporations, NGOs, and government agencies. Upon graduation, these students are also ready for graduate programs in global trade and business.


Hilbert’s major in Small Business Management (SBM) leads students through this specialized area of the U.S. economy, which creates the majority of new jobs today. The specific skill

set and knowledge that is needed to start, organize, and operate a small business is the focus of this business program. Classes in farm management and operations are also available to support the surrounding area’s small farm business dimension. The Sports Industry Management (SIM) program at Hilbert gives students a strong business foundation, so they may thrive within many different environments. Graduates are prepared to work for large companies like New Era, manage health centers, supervise golf pro-shops, or seek sales and marketing opportunities in various sports-related industries. In addition to adding these specialized and specific management courses at the advanced level, a new fieldwork requirement for all


Hilbert students, helps to synthesize course work material with

applied skills through experiential learning.

Maybe you’re good with numbers. Maybe you’re more of a “people person.” Or perhaps you like working with technology. But just being drawn to something isn’t the same as having a career path. If you want some guidance turning your passion into your career, Bryant & Stratton College can help. Bryant & Stratton College provides people just like you with the guidance they need to choose a career path and the help they need to map out a plan to get that career. Paul Bahr, Director of Bryant & Stratton College’s Western New York campuses, explains it this way: “For some people, it’s really hard to

know what kind of career you want. There may things you’re good at, but the missing piece is how to turn that into a career. It can be very confusing and frustrating. And that’s where we can help.” Bryant & Stratton College has a Career Services department staffed by experts who can help you decide what career path you are best suited for. They’ll listen to you, work with you, and explain your options. Bahr goes on to explain, “If you’re good with numbers, then you might want to study accounting. If you’re more of a people person, maybe a healthcare career would suit you best. And if you like technology, there’s a career path for that as well. In fact, we just introduced a new Information

Technology degree program with a focus on Mobile Applications Development.” In addition to their Associate’s and Bachelor’s degree programs in growing industries like healthcare, business, technology, hospitality and the legal field, Bryant & Stratton College provides their students with a careerfocused education and plenty of personal attention and support.

Allegheny College is the premier college in the country for students with “unusual combinations” of interests, skills and talents. Over and over again, we hear from leaders in business, government,

orientation for freshman, transfers and parents. The two-day orientation brings in five groups of 200. According to Herman, “we get rave

reviews on it and parents love it.” He says it’s also an opportunity for parents to sign up for email and get a weekly report of what’s going on in campus life.

JCC students participate in orientation activities in 2010.

According to Herman, orientation is divided into three components over the course of the first few weeks and semester. During week one, there are both fun and educational activities to help freshmen get acclimated and involved. Often, returning students will help the freshmen class move on to campus. Week two is comprised of “activities night,” during which student organizations set up tables where students can learn about the 130 student organizations on campus, and sign up for what interests them. “MAP” Works (Making

After getting the results in the fourth week, residential hall staff will reach out to students, who may be in need of assistance. “By the time they come back the second semester, if they haven’t done well, we can intervene.” In addition, Herman says, “our goal is to have a good second year retention rate.
