CHAUTAUQUA STAR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2013
As I write this, my facebook is being inundated with posts about the first snow fall of the season. This year, as I’ve announced to most of those dearest to me, I’ve turned over a new leaf with regards to the fluffy white stuff. After some significant weight loss, I’ve apparently lost my ability to maintain self-warmth. As such, the end of last winter was incredibly chilly for me; a situation I’d never found myself in before. All that to say this- while I find that the snow is indeed beautiful, I’m slowly changing my tastes to prefer that of a crisp fall day, hovering around 60˚ as opposed to my previous tastes of 25˚. But, winter is coming and there’s nothing we can do about it. And in the words of a minister that I once heard, “you’d better get happy quick.” So what can we do to fight the winter duldrums? How can we fight the reputation that we have amongst southerners
as uptight, depressed and freezing? Easy- find stuff to do inside. Watch a movie with your family. I’m not an advocate of living in front of the television, but I do think that there’s much to be said to its ability to bring a family together (even if they aren’t actually interacting). My wife and I differ on this, and that’s okay. I consider it to be quality time spent with my boy when we snuggle up under a warm blanket and watch Superman stop the bad guy. Mainly because afterward, naturally, he dons his Superman cape and begins to fly around the house, saving all his toys. We don’t need to spend every waking moment in front of the television, and it certainly should not replace loving interaction, but there’s something about a cup of hot cocoa and a movie that makes the inside feel that much warmer. go shopping Really, this is a test to see if my wife is reading my commentaries. If she sees this, it’ll be about thirty seconds before I get a call or text saying that I gave her permission for us to go to TJ Maxx (one of my exercises in love toward her). But in all seriousness, we’re not only supporting the local economy but managing to stay warm at the same time. I may have come around on the cold weather side of things, but I don’t think anything will take away my love for driving in the snow.
It’s a free thrill ride, in my opinion. Free being purely objective here, since obviously driving is far from free these days. Play a game Before we had kids, my wife and I found great joy in a game of scrabble every now and then. Sure, now the toddler thinks the letters are pellets created for chucking at his infant brother, but there are plenty of games that the whole family can play togetherand games that don’t cost a lot of money, or barely any at all. My wife amazes me with the hobbies and crafts that she finds to entertain our kids with, all of which barely touch the monthly expenses. Read a book Sure this is a given (most of the stuff on this list probably is), but there’s no reason that we can’t mention it anyways. Leaders are readers, and if you can get the few moments of quiet time to bury yourself in a good book, do it. Personally, I’m an advocate of non-fiction. I read about a study that reported most successful entrepreneurs read at least one non-fiction book a month. I’ve got plenty of my own imagination, and don’t find that I need to have anyone else take the time to fi ll it. If I can read something that will better my person, then that’s where my time will go. So, while the snow is blowing and the mercury is dropping lower, remember that you can still stay warm inside this winter!
City’s 67th Historical marker unveiled
City Historian B. Dolores Thompson and Mayor Samuel Teresi
Contributed Article City of Jamestown
The Jamestown Historical Marker Committee, chaired by City Historian B. Dolores Thompson, dedicated the City’s 67th historical marker next to the Lucille Ball Little Theatre building at 18 East Second Street. The marker honors the Chautauqua County Political Equality Club. The organization promoted women’s right to vote during the suffrage movement, marking the 125th anniversary of its organization. The late 1800s marked a surge in the efforts to secure the right to vote for women. Since the inception of the United States and its Constitution, women were considered citizens and were required to pay taxes. However, they had no vote in the government to which they paid those taxes and no voice in any of the laws enacted that they were expected to honor. Efforts to secure the right to vote began in June 1848

at the celebrated Seneca Falls, NY, Convention. By the 1880s, efforts were in full swing throughout the country. Small groups sprang up in many small local communities, including in all of Chautauqua County. On October 31, 1888, the Jamestown group hosted a meeting of all the various County groups at Allen’s Opera House (now Little Theatre). They decided to organize as a county organization, which was a first in New York State. With over 1,000 members by 1891, it was the largest county suffrage organization in the United States. Women were finally formally granted the right to vote on August 26, 1920, through the 19th Amendment to the Constitution. Congress had passed the Amendment in June 1919, but the required state ratifications were not reached until the following August. In November, women voted for the President of the United States for the first time in the country’s 144year history. Committee members assisting Ms. Thompson in the marker program are Clair Carlson, Traci Langworthy, Karen Livsey, and Arthur Osterdahl.
