Williams says the public should be aware of the deficits faced by survivors as the result of stroke. “Many times society is so fast paced and people are in a rush that survivors will say ‘they don’t give me enough time to talk, or they make me feel inadequate. If they would just give me a

With An Open Mic And A Concert By Guitarist Doug Yeomans Contributed Article Trinity Guitars

Jim Holler of Trinity Guitars will host a special event for owners of Martin guitars and would-be owners of Martin guitars alike. Those attending the September 17th “Martin Jam and Play” will be offered the opportunity to play a new Martin guitar during an open mic to be hosted by well-known local musician, Bill Ward, and at a jam session featuring celebrated guitarist Doug Yeomans. The event will be held at the Trinity Guitars studio at 800 West Third Street in Jamestown, beginning at 1:00 pm, and continuing into the evening. Holler, a celebrated guitar builder in his own right, will open the proceedings by hosting a clinic called “Getting the Most Out of Your Martin Guitar,” which will include instruction in acoustic guitar fundamentals, selecting the most suitable strings for any given instrument, and setting up a guitar to suit individual players’ styles and preferences. The clinic will be followed by a demonstration of several of the many Martin guitars in Trinity’s extensive inventory. At 3:00 pm, Ward will host an open mic session in Trinity’s performance area during which attendees will be allowed to perform their favorite tunes on new Martin guitars. A sound system featuring a PA, speakers and microphones from Trinity’s stock will be provided for

the open mic, as well as the Yeomans concert at 5:30. Dubbed a “Buffalo treasure” by Buffalo News music critic Jeff Miers, Yeomans is a member of the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame and a past winner of the North American Rock Guitar Competition. He has traveled extensively, playing rock, R&B, blues, country and bluegrass guitar in concert halls, clubs, festivals and private events. He also is a seasoned guitar teacher and clinician. Yeomans teaches master classes in addition to programs for school children in which he explains the stringed instruments used in his shows, as well as the music of the Erie Canal and American Roots Music. According to Holler, there are two categories of guitar play-

ers; those who own a Martin and those who are waiting to purchase their first one. “The C.F Martin script logo on the peghead of a guitar, followed by the legend ‘EST. 1833,’ are synonymous with enduring quality and legendary tone in the estimation of many thousands of players,” Holler said. I’m really looking forward to hearing Doug Yeomans play one Martin after another, highlighting their various characteristics and demonstrating their sound.” Attendance at the Martin Jam and Play is free, but space is limited and advance reservations are required. Persons interested in attending the September 17th event should phone Jim Holler at (716) 4993671 or by email to

Fredonia Opera House to Screen “A Little Help” Contributed Article 1891 Fredonia Opera House

The sweet comedy “A Little Help” is the next featured film in the Cinema Series at the 1891 Fredonia Opera House. It will be screened Sat., Sept. 17, at 8 p.m. and Tuesday. September 20, at 7:30 p.m. It’s a movie for anyone whose life has been thrown off-course, out of whack, or simply not turned out the way they planned it. In other words, it’s a movie for everyone, period. Set in suburban Long Island in the summer of 2002, with the psychic wounds of 9/11 still fresh, “A Little Help” takes a comic, searching and profoundly empathetic look at a few pivotal months in the life of dental hygienist Laura Pehlke (Fischer) and her heroic efforts to re-establish a sense of security and normalcy for herself and her son. Roger Moore, of the Orlando Sentinel, calls the film “a wonderfully detailed characterstudy.” Pete Hammond, in BoxOffice Magazine, calls it “a

highly entertaining and richly human movie experience with a gem of a performance from Fischer.” Steven Rea, in the Philadelphia Inquirer says “this is one of the smarter, more honest scripts to be filmed in quite some time. And Jenna Fischer gives one of the smarter, more honest - and vulnerable, and tough - performances by an actress on the big screen in an even longer stretch.” Rated R for language, some sexual content and drug use, “A Little Help” runs 109 minutes. Tickets to the Opera House Cinema Series are available at the door for $7 (adults), $6.50 (seniors & Opera House members) and $5 (students & children) the night of each

screening. For more information, call the Opera House Box Office at 716-679-1891.

Wings Flights of Hope By Scott Wise Star News Editor

There’s no debating the fact that Western New York has more than its fair share of non-profit organizations, each of which have a strong backing of volunteers working to support their respective causes.

New Family Learning Initiative Headquartered At Gateway Center Contributed Article E2CCB

The Erie 2-ChautauquaCattaraugus BOCES (E2CCB) is implementing a bold and comprehensive initiative in the form of a new Literacy Zone to address many educational, social, and community needs in Southern Chautauqua County beginning this fall. The new Literacy Zone will be headquartered at the Gateway Center on Water Street in Jamestown and is being developed by the E2CCB Adult & Community Education Division. It is scheduled to be up and running in the coming days, coinciding with National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week, which is Sept. 12 to 18. Newly appointed coordinator Vincent Quatroche, a longtime local career educator, is optimistic about the benefits the new Literacy Zone will bring to the greater Jamestown community. “We are really excited about building this program from the ground up. Cooperative partners in the Jamestown area will be assisting us in bringing innovative and creative strategies to guide individuals and their families to numerous programs and avenues of assistance,” Quatroche said. The Family Learning Zone at Gateway, the formal name of the Literacy Zone, will provide pathways out of poverty for individuals and their families through innovation and community partnerships. Partners include the Chautauqua Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Council, the Jamestown Community Learning Council, the Joint Neighborhood Project, St. Susan’s Kitchen, Cornell

Cooperative Extension, Community Helping Hands, Prendergast Library, Chautauqua Works, and the Chautauqua County Department of Social Services. According to Quatroche, this holistic approach addresses barriers to education and employment opportunities, and the Family Learning Zone will encompass educational and workforce development initiatives, programs, activities, and partnerships to enhance the quality of life for participants, families, and the community at large. Literacy Zones are the product of a recent reform initiative developed by the New York State Board of Regents and the New York State Education Department to close the achievement gap in urban and rural communities with high levels of poverty and educational needs. Literacy Zones are intended to focus on meeting the literacy needs of a community at all age levels. The State Education Department has established 18 Literacy Zones across the state, and each Literacy Zone along with its satellite sites can provide pathways out of poverty for individuals and families in the following ways: • A continuum of literacy services from the early childhood through adult level, including strong support for parent involvement in their child’s literacy development at home and engagement with the school system; • Assistance and support for at-risk youth to enable them to complete high school and succeed in post-secondary education or advanced training; • Post-secondary transition assistance that enables out-

of-school youth and adults to attain a high school equivalency diploma and succeed in post-secondary education; • Programs that enable out-ofschool youth and adults who are receiving public assistance, food stamps, or families with incomes less than two times the poverty rate to obtain and retain employment; • Incarcerated transition for youth and adults returning to the community from incarceration; • Pathways to citizenship and English language proficiency for speakers of languages other than English; • Workforce development programs, including apprenticeship, career and technical education, and career pathways; • Support for mature workers and senior citizens to enable them to stay out of poverty; • Support for individuals with disabilities and their families; • Transition support for returning veterans and their families, including disabled veterans. According to Quatroche, support will be tailored to meet the specific needs of individuals and families in the Learning Zone community. E2CCB Adult Program Professional Joyce Golden will assist the Literacy Zone as a liaison between participants and service providers. The Literacy Zone is scheduled to be up and running by mid-September with an open house at the Gateway Center planned for late October. For more information, call 484-9811.

In July, residents of Maple Springs held their first annual Maple Springs Garden Walk with the proceeds going to the renovation of the 1946 Herschell Carousel at Midway State Park. “Midway has been an important part of our Maple Springs history,” said Eileen Leary, chair of the Garden Walk Committee. “For generations, children, parents and grandparents have enjoyed the unique rides and entertainment offered just a stone’s throw from our cottages and homes. We wanted to create an event that could help support the future of the park.” Over one hundred people participated in the Garden Walk and raffle, raising $1500 for the Midway Carousel building. “We appreciate the support from our neighbors,” said Bob Wooler, chair of the board for the Friends of Midway State Park. “It was a fun event that brought the whole community together.

2. Human compassion and practical support can be a critical antidote to the powerlessness and betrayal often felt after a “man-made” disaster, where human carelessness or intentional acts cause serous injuries or deaths. Timely help can lessen the severity and duration of the survivor’s physical and emotional suffering. To volunteer or get help, contact your school’s Office of Volunteer and Community Services or local United Way, Red Cross, Salvation Army, house of worship, or animal relief and therapy organizations, etc. To help military, emergency responders and their families, contact local fire, police, and veterans’ organizations and the website Obtain volunteer training and skills before disaster strikes! 3. People show both common and unique physical, emotional, cognitive, and social reactions to stressful events and their anniversaries, based in part on the nature and number of events experienced and the quality of practical help and social support. The community and news media can promote positive healing and remembrances by serving as “compassionate presences/witnesses” who promote survivor’s safety, respect survivors’ unique experiences/needs/ goals, and help them identify resources and contacts without being intrusive and sensationalistic. Websites of the American Psychological Association and SUNY New Paltz Institute for Disaster Mental Health offer resources for disaster preparation and recovery. 4. The majority of people who experience adversity can recover well enough to resume important life activities without needing professional help. People are naturally resilient and can use personal and social memorials/tributes and resources to understand and cope with painful events by maintaining positive

routines and self-care, talking, reading, writing, and using creative arts to promote healing. By helping others, we can pay tribute to lost/ injured loved ones and foster personal healing. 5. Consider obtaining the professional evaluation and help that you and your family deserve whenever traumarelated distress continues to harm your quality of life for more than 3-4 months. Learning mental and behavioral coping skills often helps provide relief from many common stress-related reactions, including: difficulties with eating or sleeping; distressing feelings like anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, or distrust; problem use of alcohol, medications, or other substances, and difficulties with family or work relationships and responsibilities. Professional organizations like the American Psychological Association, American Medical association, and your local Vet Center or VA can provide resource and referral information. Bruce Klonsky, a Psychology professor, and Sandra Vedovato, a licensed psychologist, in cooperation with the SUNY Fredonia campus community and Adams Art Gallery, have co-organized six annual Healing Arts Tributes to community groups facing major challenges like military combat, physical and sexual abuse, and medical/mental health crises. The 2012 Healing Arts program will address the family experience and other diversity issues related to military, police, fire, and other emergency responder service roles. Any student, faculty, or community member who wants to help in tribute planning or nominating military and emergency responders for tribute participation, please contact Bruce Klonsky at klonsky@fredonia. edu or (716) 673-3892 by October 2011 so we can begin formal planning.

Richard White, General Manager of Jim White’s Truck and Auto Center, shares his automotive expertise from a lifetime spent in the auto industry. What I know sitting on the opposite side of the desk, you auto know. Continuing on the question of Lemon Law and how it affects the purchase of a used vehicle… What are the obligations of the purchaser? In the event of a failure of a listed component, the purchaser must notify the selling dealer within the applicable warranty period and deliver the vehicle to the selling dealer. To determine what is or what is not covered, review the copy of the written warranty that you received at the time of purchase. There are six major systems that include coverage for engine, transmission, drive axle, brakes, radiator, and steering. Each system includes named coverage for specific parts. The written warranty should include a list of parts not covered as well as exclusions including failure of a part due to lack of maintenance, collision, altering odometer by customer, towing if not recommended by manufacturer or even racing. There is a complete list on your warranty form. In my many years of experience I have seen everything. We had a customer bring their vehicle in for transmission issues which would have been covered by their limited warranty. However, they failed to disclose that they drove the vehicle into a creek and had submerged the vehicle into the water. The claim was denied due to abuse. Many people like to take their four-wheel drive vehicles off road, which would exclude failure of parts as a result of actions. Things to remember: always make sure to get a copy of the warranty at time of purchase, read it before signing and if not sure, ask questions. You must notify dealer within warranty period if there is an issue. You are responsible to deliver vehicle to the dealer. Repairs are to be made by the selling dealer or at a location he designates. If you have repairs performed at own shop, the selling dealer may not have to reimburse you. Please direct any questions that you would like addressed in this column to my email (

Books are gateways into other worlds. They can take you on a fantastical voyage through space or a perilous adventure in a foreign world. They can tell the life stories of those who have left an impression on human history. Because there are so many books out on the market, older books are lost among the shuffle when newer ones come on to the scene.

ment papers. Unsure what to do, Wolfgang wondered if she should go into a different field of nursing or if she should do something different. In the end she decided to open Novel Destination due

to her close upbringing with the literary world. “…I always loved books,” said Wolfgang. “My whole family has. I taught myself how to read by the time I was four. And books have just always

been a part of our life; whenever we traveled, whatever we did, there was a stack of books.” Unfortunately once a tale is told, people typically aren’t interested in hearing it again. “…I know myself that if you buy a book and only you read it, then you get rid of it in some way,” said Wolfgang. “I’m hearing from a lot of people that they have thrown them away. They’re just filling landfills for no good reason.” In addition to saving landfills from additional needless garbage, Wolfgang is giving these books a second chance at life.

are under $3. Leanin’ Tree greeting cards are made up of recycled paper and soy inks products.

The Grand Opening of Novel Destination-Used Book Emporium will be at 1 p.m. on Sept. 19. Novel Destination sells paperbacks at $3 plus tax and hard covers at $5 plus tax. It shares a building with the Clip Joint Barber Shoppe located at 177 Fluvanna Ave. Novel Destination is open 9:30 a.m. thru 5:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday and 9 a.m. thru 1 p.m. on Saturday.

Nothing has been decided upon and who knows how things will shake out between the current proposals and the final regulations. This simply reminds me of some advice I continually give taxpayers. Stay informed about the changes being made, how those changes affect your tax situation, and make the best educated decision you can in response to the current and future tax scenario. When I talked to my son the other day about tax reform he said, “Is one of the proposals one that would forgive all of my student loans?” Wish-

ful thinking! Over the next several weeks, I will talk about some of the proposals and how they could affect your taxes should they come to fruition.

Tax Matters Sweeping Tax Reform

By Kelly Haggmark Contributing Writer

If you caught President Obama’s speech last Thursday night, you may have heard him mention reforming our tax code as one of the ways to pay for his proposed jobs act. This may not have seemed very significant to most

Americans, but it could be depending on how extensive the changes are once something is passed by Congress. As a tax professional, I know that there are hundreds of tax law changes every year and keeping up with them can be daunting. Some of these changes can have a big impact on taxpayers in specific categories, but they don’t typically affect all taxpayers and may not have much effect on our economy as a whole. Sweeping tax reform, on the other hand, is something to pay attention to as it can really change things. I will use an analogy. The tax law changes we see each year may be something like the days during our western New York winters where we get 3 to 6 inches of snow. We may

or may not have to shovel our driveways, we should leave a little extra time to get to work, but we will get there, the schools are not closed, and for the most part we go on with our day making minor adjustments. A major tax regulation overhaul is more like one of our major snow storms where we all have to react. Schools are closed, we need to get up really early to get the driveway cleaned out so that we can get out and get to work, and things like air travel and thruway closings may really complicate things. My intent isn’t to say that tax reform is necessarily a bad thing, but it certainly is something to stay on top of as you think about your retirement planning, home buying decisions, saving for your kids

JCC Awarded Military Friendly School Status By G.I. Jobs

Contributed Article JCC

G.I. Jobs, a magazine for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has designated Jamestown Community College a military friendly school. The 2012 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members and veterans as students. The list of schools, as well as interactive tools and search functionality to assist military veterans with their school decisions, can be found at www. “Members of JCC’s faculty and staff have worked diligently over the past several years to understand and provide for the needs of student veterans,” said Eileen Goodling, vice president and dean of student development. “We are proud to have earned the ‘military friendly’ designation and are

dedicated to continuing to provide the environment and services that are most conducive to the academic success of our student veterans.” In its effort to help student veterans find the right school, G.I. Jobs incorporated a survey of student veterans at more than 8,000 schools nationwide. The feedback provides prospective military students with insight into the student veteran experience at a particular institution based on peer reviews from current students. Survey feedback can be viewed at list. “The Military Friendly Schools list is the go-to resource for prospective student veterans searching for schools that provide the right overall experience,” said Michael Dakduk, executive director of Student Veterans of America. “Nothing is more compelling than actual feedback from current student veterans.” Service members and veterans can also meet individual student veterans from various schools on the Military

Friendly Schools website to learn more about personal school decisions and the transition from the military to an academic environment. The 1,518 institutions on the list prioritize the recruitment of students with military experience. These schools offer scholarships, discounts, veterans’ clubs, full-time staff, military credit, and other services to veterans. Methodology, criteria, and weighting for the list were developed with the assistance of an advisory board consisting of educators. A list of board members can be found at http://militaryfriendlyschools. com/Article/advisory-board/. G.I. Jobs ( is published by Victory Media, a veteran-owned business which also publishes The Guide to Military Friendly Schools, Military Spouse, and Vetrepreneur magazines and annually rates the nation’s military friendly employers, military spouse friendly employers, and best corporations for veteranowned businesses.

SUNY Fredonia

A commitment to become fully engaged in campus life at SUNY Fredonia, made on the cusp of her freshman year, has elevated Meagan Allers, now a junior, to the student representative seat on the board of the Fredonia College Foundation. “I am honored to be named to such a high position and have the responsibility to convey the students’ needs on campus to the board,” said Ms. Allers, daughter of Thomas and Laurie Allers of Williamsville, N.Y. In just two years, this Childhood Education/Early Childhood Education major has become deeply involved in numerous community service projects and campus organizations. She has held leadership positions with Fredonia for St. Jude (president and co-president), which raised more than $25,000 in the last two years for Memphis, Tennessee’s renowned St. Jude’s Children’s

Hospital; the Fredonia Student Association Board (sophomore class president); Faculty Student Association (treasurer) and Alma Mater Society (president). Allers is also a member of the Kappa Delta Pi educational honor society and a student representative on the SUNY Fredonia Volunteer and Community Service Board. During her first two years on campus she planned and hosted a “math-a-thon” held at Dunkirk’s School No. 7, and has been a volunteer at numerous events, including the Buffalo News Kid’s Day, Fall Sweep and Maple East Fun Night. The potential for Allers to become a campus leader was apparent to Vice President for Academic Affairs Virginia Horvath from the beginning. “She took the initiative to come to my office to ask me about leadership opportunities, as well as ways to develop her own potential.

Global Pandemics

Randy DeVaul Have you seen the movie, “Contagion” yet? News stories are abounding of a renewed fear of catching an uncontrollable global pandemic virus as a result of seeing this film.

Our very own US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) featured in the film offers tips on how to protect yourself and your family from a pandemic. Remember the ‘Swine Flu’ – later to be tagged as, ‘H1N1’ – that had everyone sure the end of the world was coming during flu season? Remember the ‘Bird Flu’ that was about to end life as we knew it just a couple years earlier? I don’t make light of the potential: it is real and does exist. And, the CDC is on 24/7 to respond to the call whenever a community or country encounters a deadly virus that could quickly

become global. If a pandemic should occur CDC would conduct an investigation and provide technical assistance to cities, states or international partners dealing with the outbreak. This assistance would include consultation, lab testing and analysis, patient management and care, tracking of contacts and infection control (including isolation and quarantine). It’s great to know such an agency does exist and is ready to spring into action. Wouldn’t it be great, though, if we could actually minimize the risk of such a disease spreading so rapidly in the first place? I’m

glad you asked – we can! Many of the respirable-related contagions are considered to be ‘large’ – meaning they don’t travel very far in air. Someone sneezing can propel mucal ‘stuff ’ at a rather high velocity of not covering the sneeze with a tissue or shirted elbow but it is unlikely someone else would actually breathe such a cloud of ‘stuff ’ in to become infected by it. So, similar to the hand sanitizer article of a few weeks ago, we can control more than we often think related to keeping contagions off and away from us. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough


or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. You can also use an alcohol-based hand cleaner. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way. Try to avoid close contact with sick people. Follow the 3-foot rule by creating space around you, whenever possible. Stay home if you are sick until at least 24 hours after you no longer have a fever (100°F or 37.8°C) or signs of a fever (without the use of a fever-

reducing medicine, such as Tylenol®). While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them. Use sanitizers to wipe down or spray commonly touched items. Examples: doorknobs and handles, desk tops, public phone receivers, public toilet seats. Following basic common sense guidelines and a little respect for others will go a long way toward creating a pandemic or from getting the basic flu.

point of bringing in more? Therefore, I will no longer be doing my part to stimulate the economy; I’ve already contributed my fair share to the retail community. I will also say “No, thank you” to the next person who offers me a box of craft supplies. The next question was what to do about the mess in front of me. I could keep moving and organizing the crafty clutter, I could make a donation to a worthy organization, or find a way to actually use what I had with an action plan in mind. I decided that, within one year, if I have not used something, I would gratefully pass it along to a charity. I gave myself a year to realize the creative potential of all of my craft and scrapbook items not only because of the sheer volume of them, but also to have a REALISTIC deadline for my scatterbrained personality. I picked September 11th. I’m not likely to forget that date. It’s going to be an interesting year.

Ask that they not ask you to participate in the activity in question and hope that they understand where you’re coming from. If they agree, you truly have good friends.

them that they hold the note on a debt you intend to take a lifetime to repay. This is exactly the debt we have to all people and God. Romans 13:8 says, “Owe no man anything BUT to love one another…” The Bible teaches us we should rectify all financial debts. However, there is a debt we owe that can never be satisfied though we should repay it on a daily basis. It’s the debt of the God kind of Love we all owe one another; your spouse included. A marriage will only be successful when a husband and wife filter their thoughts on

marriage through the Cross of Calvary. Christ owed nothing but He took upon Himself our debt. You should stop and consider that your spouse owes you nothing but you owe them everything in light of what Christ did for you. This will drive the selfishness right out of a marriage if both sides would take this mentality. Next time your spouse offends you take this to heart. Say to yourself, “I am not offended. After all, I owe them my patience, kindness, and peace.” This will keep us busy until Jesus comes!

Scrapbooking Today On Having Too Much of a Good Thing

By Anne Walterich Contributing Writer

I’ve been on a rampage this week, a one-woman “surge” in my war against clutter. It started simply enough. A friend had given us an old Alaskan vanity license plate that said “ANNJIM.” It then sat on the kitchen table, then on a pile in the living room, then on another pile in the bedroom for about three weeks. I was tired of moving it around the house. It needed to go up on the wall. That led to making the actual decision of where it was going to go. Then, I realized that I would have to move our knickknacks to avoid getting drywall dust on them when I went to hang it. It snowballed. Moving these random items and unnecessary objects then led me into a tailspin of cleaning closets, donating clothes, organizing, rearranging furniture, and, a week later, finally hanging the license plate on our soffit.

Apparently, I get distracted easily. As I cleaned the house, many things were moved into my craft studio for use on projects I will likely never get to. I stood in there after a while, looked at all of the crafty possibilities that surrounded me, and felt shockingly overwhelmed. As Americans, we live in a consumer culture. We buy “stuff ”, and lots of it. Many of us, myself included, fall prey to “buy two, save a dollar” and Keeping it real : my chaos.

Keeping the Faith Advice for College

By Rev. Michael Lokietek Family Church of Chautauqua County

Dear Pastor, I’m a college student and my roommates are pressuring me to do something that I believe is wrong. I want to stick to my beliefs but I also don’t want to lose my friends. What should I do? It may seem like you’re between a rock and a hard place, but I want to reassure you that the Bible gives us guidelines to follow, even when it comes to peer pressure. First of all, I want to commend you for wanting to stick to your beliefs.

God gave us a conscience so we could tell the difference between right and wrong and please Him (Romans 2:15). Whenever we violate our conscience, we lose our peace as a Christian and will eventually go down a path that is not good (I Timothy 1:9). Compromising our values, even when we repent and ask God’s forgiveness, can lead to regretful consequences. This could include losing our reputation and our ability to witness to others. However, if we do the right

thing and suffer for it (like losing friends), we are greatly honored in the sight of God (1 Peter 3:14-17). Secondly, let’s talk about your roommates. Proverbs 17:17 says that, “A friend loves at all times.” That means that if your roommates are really your friends, they will respect your decision to stay away from questionable activity. I would suggest that you sit down and have a heart to heart talk with them. Let them know that

The Weekly Word

Marriage Dynamics Part 13- The Greatest Commandment

Rev. Tim Stahlman Family Church of the Southern Tier

When a couple stands before a gathered company to exchange

vows they are publicly putting their integrity on trial. Vows used to be written in such a way as to eliminate all excuses of why a marriage would fail. The reason for vows would be to put complete responsibility on the ones entering into the marriage covenant. If there is one thing that will test the depths of a person’s character it is marriage. Unfortunately the world is a place that does not pursue Christ-like character and marriages fail as a result. Marriages fail because one or both of the parties involved do not walk in the God kind of Love. John 3:16 says, “God

so LOVED the world that He GAVE His only begotten Son…” Romans 5:8 says, “But God DEMONSTRATED His LOVE for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.” Love is not the God kind of Love until it is demonstrated by giving. Many people think as they stand there at the altar that they are receiving a spouse. No, you are giving yourself away first before you ever receive anything. Your job is not to see what YOU can gain in a marriage but what you can GIVE in a marriage. Marriage is about keeping your vow to GIVE even when it appears like your spouse is

undeserving. See, God thought of marriage, not man. He gave Christ to be crucified when nobody here was deserving. Actually, He gave His Son to save the very ones that were driving nails through His hands. That’s what Love does: It gives the very best you have without a thought of whether it is deserved or not. Can you see how this principle could save a marriage? Your part of the marriage is about the vows you said not the ones you heard. Basically, when you say your vows you are giving your spouse a blank check for the future. You are telling

Mental Health Today

In Memoriam; Early Intervention & Treatment

By Lucy Studd Contributing Writer

In a moment of silence I was remembering the tragic events of 911 and my mind wandered back to a solemn day at one of our mental health meetings. One of our members a Nurse Practitioner now practicing at Johns Hopkins shared an

obituary she read in the Buffalo paper. The article was published with the permission of the deceased woman’s daughter who had the courage who to share with the public the importance of early stabilization and treatment of those who suffer from serious mental illness and lack insight into their illness because they do not recognize it as an illness. I cannot remember the woman’s name but all too painfully I do remember the story and would like to share it with you now. Born in 1932 in Buffalo, NY she attended Westover School in CN and graduated with honors. She continued her education by attending Vassar College for two more years and then onto Florence Italy for a year of finishing school. She had artistic talent and spoke Italian and French fluently. She worked for Time –Life in NYC and in the early 1963 she

earned her BA from Catholic University in Washington DC. She was funny, intelligent attractive and accomplished. She married in 1961 and two years later had her only child, a daughter. She was an attentive and loving mother while she was capable. Up until this point she was able to maintain secrecy regarding disturbing thoughts she had. She suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and by the mid to late 1960’s it became unmanageable. This accomplished young woman tried to end her life and lost custody of her daughter. She then became transient moving from one place to another, living on the streets ending up in New Mexico in the 1980s. Untreated, without support or medication the disease took over and for the following twenty years she lived in mental institutions, half way houses and on the streets.

The paranoia and hallucinations took over she trusted no one, not even her family. Unable to handle everyday life she died alone in December 2004. Her daughter struggled throughout her life to find a meaning to her mother’s suffering, to the reasons she never had the pleasure of her mother’s company and struggling as a young adult to understand why no one helped her mother. She received a poem in sympathy and began to see the gift. I will share the poem with you, the readers as well. “Some live their lives in rainbow hues, when they leave this earth it is big news. Their colors have been displayed in the sky; they are missed by many who ask why. Others live their lives in a forest of trees whisper of sound in the breeze, a shaft of sunlight hitting one place for a moment of time in that space. While maybe not bearers of ex-

travagant color, their presence is felt and lives made fuller. Although your mom was not someone I knew I will celebrate her life because she made you.” I applaud the family in particular her daughter for sharing her life in her obituary so that many could feel the impact of this lost life. Sadly, this is not an uncommon story. Imagine how productive her life could have been and what she may have become with all of her talent had there been a way to engage her into treatment. Her illness could have been diagnosed early and treated properly with available medications and with the support of her family members. After all, isn’t that what we do when family members become ill with any other disease such as cancer, diabetes or heart disease? We look for help and exhaust all possibilities to get them the treatment they need. In this case the

woman may have been freed from her uncontrolled torment and her daughter may have had the opportunity to have known her as her mother, to appreciate her wit, sense of humor, and vibrant spirit. The family would have been spared their frustration and sufferings in watching their loved one deteriorate over time. This may be only a glimpse into untreated mental illness. The needless tragedies families experience could be a thing of the past if only society would see to it that people with mental illness, a disease of the brain, would get medications, help and the support they need. Appropriate enforcement of Kendra’s Law could be one effort to prevent others like the woman in this story from living and dying alone.

Q&A Lab’s worn-out tail will soon wag again Q: Our Labrador suddenly stopped being able to wag his tail after we spent a day on the lake. The problem is “dead tail,” according to our veterinarian, who said it would heal on its own. But what caused it? Will it happen again? — via email A: Good news first: Your veterinarian’s right in that the problem will resolve on its own in a couple of days. Because the condition can be painful, your veterinarian may prescribe a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication (NSAID) for a day or two to make your dog more comfortable in the meantime. “Dead tail” (also called “cold tail” and “limber tail”) is sort of a canine version of “weekend warrior syndrome,” a muscle problem that happens when a body is pushed to peak performance without building up strength and stamina first. Typically, “dead tail” is seen in hunting dogs near the beginning of the season after a long day’s work. Swimming in cold water under such circumstances also seems to be a trigger. What causes “dead tail” is muscle exhaustion. The muscles of the tail are used for more than wagging. The tail is also used for balance and, in the water, for steering. “Dead tail” is a pretty accurate description: The tail just hangs down, and the dog can’t even wag it. Treatment is pain medication and rest. Prevention involves taking your dog on a series of shorter outings that demand peak performance before attempting a full day of hard work or play. Veterinarians also suggest stretch breaks for dogs confined for long periods during a day’s outing (such as in a crate, waiting the turn to compete), and ending the good times before the dog is exhausted, especially when cold water swimming is involved. — Dr. Marty Becker Do you have a pet question?

Veterinarians aim to de-stress visits for cats and their owners

Dog’s leg action on a hair trigger

hen I look around the waiting room at one of the two Idaho veterinary hospitals where I practice, I too often see something that concerns me. Where are the cats? Cats have long been the most popular of pets. At the nation’s veterinary hospitals, though, dogs take most of the appointment slots and get most of the wellness care.

Tickling a dog will often get him scratching an itch that isn’t there.

• Every healthy dog has a reflex reaction to any passing skin irritation, whether it’s an insect crawling among his hairs or a fingernail giving a scratch. If nerve endings detect something that’s annoying the skin, the dog’s leg will automatically come up to scratch off the pest — even if there’s no pest there. The response is most pronounced if you scratch a dog on the rump near the base of the tail, along the upper part of the flanks or on the belly — not coincidentally, places where fleas like to congregate. The “scratch reflex” is so predictable that veterinarians will use it to help with their neurological exam when spinal damage is suspected. • Want to avoid a tussle when it comes to trimming the claws on your cat? Don’t trim them until you can massage your cat’s paws gently during lap time. As you massage a paw with one hand, offer an irresistible treat in the other. Make the procedure as pleasant as possible — for both of you. Trim only one nail each day and take off only the tip. • Cats can get heartworm disease as well as dogs. If these microscopic larvae — transmitted by mosquitoes — settle in a cat’s lungs, they can cause big health problems. Found in all 50 states, feline heartworm disease is incurable but 100 percent preventable with medications from your veterinarian. Think your indoor-only cat is safe? Think again! A North Carolina study reported that 28 percent of cats diagnosed with heartworm disease were indoor-only cats. — Dr. Marty Becker and Mikkel Becker

Silver Creek Prepares For Showdown With Randolph Friday By Chris Winkler Star Sports Editor

We all knew the newly revamped Section VI Class D would feature quality matchups week-in and weekout. Consider this the first. Silver Creek (2-0, 1-0 Class D) will host the Randolph Cardinals (2-0, 1-0) Friday night at 7:30 p.m. in a rematch of last year’s Class D final, where Silver Creek won 21-14. “We’d be kidding ourselves if we didn’t think they thought of this game as a little bit of a rematch,” head coach Sean Helmer said. “They probably circled it on their calendars. But Randolph is a different team and so are we. It should be a great challenge for both teams.” The history between the two squads isn’t exactly all that long, as both teams were traditionally split into different divisions. This will be just their fourth regular season meeting in the last eight years, but might just be the beginning of a new rivalry. Both of these teams come in hot, although neither may be as hot as fellow Class D member Maple Grove, but that’s a story for another week — next week to be exact, when Silver Creek heads down to Bemus Point. Each team has got off to 2-0 starts. Randolph, who hasn’t been their usual dominant self, squeaked by Frewsburg in their opener 27-25 before taking care of Cassadaga Valley 27-6. Meanwhile, the Black Knights have won both of their games comfortably, but have had to come from behind in both contests. In their opener down the road against Dunkirk, Silver Creek fell behind 6-0

before rattling off the next 22 points, all before halftime behind senior quarterback John Jimerson and junior running back Zeddie Williams. The Black Knights went on to win 35-14. Last week, after trailing 14-0 after one quarter, Silver Creek again got going from Jimerson and Williams, and scored 34 straight points en route to a 41-28 win. “I wish I knew the problem to our slow starts,” Helmer said. “We’re watching film and trying to figure it ourselves. We’ve identified it, now we have to correct it.” However, one thing is for sure, when Silver Creek does get it going, they

are extremely difficult to stop. Jimerson has been steady, and although Helmer admitted Jimerson is probably a better defender, his influence has been noticeable on the offense. “(John) is a pretty cool customer,” Helmer said. “He’s not afraid to stay in the pocket and take a hit, and that’s helped our guys get open. But he can run too, and it’s all up to how opposing teams want to play us. If they put nine guys in the box, we’re not going to stand pat and run our heads into the ground.” Spearheading the offense along with Jimerson has been a three-headed attack of running backs Williams and Anthony Morales and tight end T.J. Grant — all newcomers to the

offense — that has impressed Helmer the most. “Maybe the slow starts are because of me,” Helmer joked. “Because with those three guys going how they are, it makes my job a lot easier.” Certainly Randolph has some revenge on their minds. The Cardinals, state champions in 2009 had rattled off 22 straight wins going into the Section VI Class D final last year where Silver Creek upended them. “Win or lose, we’ll know where we stand,” Helmer said. “It’s a good chance for us to size our team up. Randolph is such a good opponent that we’ll know just how good or bad we are after the game is over.”

Reigning WNY Player Of The Fredonia Men’s Soccer Off To Year Paige Leaves Jamestown Hot Start, Win Clarion Classic

Inside This Week

By Chris Winkler Star Sports Editor

After carrying Jamestown High School to the Class AA New York State Championship game, Jaysean Paige will not return for an encore in 2011-12. Confirmed from Jamestown athletic director and head basketball coach Ben Drake, Paige will not be attending Jamestown high school for his senior year. Paige has enrolled at Perry County Central High School in Hazard, Ky., where I’m told from a local sports reporter with knowledge of the situation that the school is currently in the process of getting eligibility for Paige as quickly as possible. Their goal, so I’m told, is to have him on the football field, playing wide receiver, Friday night. This season, Perry County is already off to a 4-0 start. The school did not return calls. Last year in basketball, Perry went 25-6 before losing to Wayne County in the state tournament. Paige, the Western New York Player of the Year in basketball in 2010-11, as named by the Buffalo News joined

an elite group of players to win the award as a junior. Notable others included Paul Harris and Johnny Flynn, who both went to Syracuse via Niagara Falls, Will Regan (Nichols) who recently transferred to the University at Buffalo from Virginia and local legends Christian Laettner (Duke) and Tim Winn (St. Bonaventure). Thus, he was in pretty good company. But, reports started to pile in last week about his possible departure and were confirmed this week. “"Players come and go in high school sports,” Drake said. “My goal is to get the most out of them as players while they are here and to try to teach them life skills that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.” Last year, the 6-foot-1 Paige filled the box score nightly; averaging 25.8 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.4 steals per game. He had led Jamestown to a 21-3 record and their second straight Section 6 Class AA championship. Once reaching the state tournament in Glens Falls, the Red Raiders beat Albany’s Christian Brothers Academy before falling to Mount Vernon Continued on pg 3

SUNY Fredonia Men’s Soccer team is off to a strong start after winning their last two games over the weekend to win the Clarion Soccer Classic, putting their record at 4-1 this season. With a 1-0 victory against SUNY Institute of Technology and a 3-2 win against Houghton College, players have high hopes for the remainder of the year as the team prepares for their next game this week. Junior Tyler Williams and senior Corey Paine are two of the mainstays for Fredonia. Both are midfielders. With only a brief resting period between practices and games, both players had a lot to say regarding the attitude and direction of the team so far this season. “It’s been really enjoyable progressing with these guys over the last few years,” Williams said. “Between last year and this, we’ve become so much more of a mesh team working better together, it seems like there’s a new aura to us.” It would seem that teamwork has paid off so far in looking at the record Fredonia carries this early on — already having beaten St. John Fisher, Geneva

College, SUNY IT and Houghton College, some very tough teams. The Blue Devils can attribute their only loss to University of Rochester. “I can see us doing some really good things year,” continued Williams. “Last year we made it to the semifinals of the SUNYAC tournament and ended up losing to Brockport in double overtime, and that was a really hard loss for us — but it also gave us the opportunity to fix some of those mistakes and get better.” Paine agreed. “That (game) was the first time Fredonia State had made it into playoffs in three years,” Paine said. “And we had already beaten Brockport two weeks prior to the semi finals game. This year though, I would really like to win the finals, and I think we can do it. In either case, we’re looking to be the number one seed this year so hopefully that final game can happen here at home.” Both players agreed about the sports facilities at Fredonia State being some of the nicest ones they’ve ever used. With eight seniors on the team, Paine thinks the chances are good that Fredonia will be a tough opponent for all their matches this season. Continued on pg 3

Maruaders Breakthrough Against Eden, Climb On Top Of Class B South By Chris Winkler Star Sports Editor

Talking to Dunkirk head coach Tim Majka before the season started, he talked about how he thought his team was on the rise. After a tough loss to local rival Silver Creek to open the year, Majka’s team might have made the breakthrough they were looking for Saturday. The Marauders edged Eden, the defending B South champions, 12-7 on a fourth-quarter drive capped by junior quarterback Kevin Burns finding senior Mike Donaldson for the game-winning touchdown and less than a minute to play. “Once we got to midfield, Kevin was calm and confident,” Majka said. “On that last play, our line protected as well as we did all night and Kevin laid it in to Mike perfectly in between the defenders.” It was Eden’s first home loss since 2008 and is a team that had gone 17-3 since the start of the 2009 season. “In my tenure, it’s probably the second biggest win I’ve had (he said last year’s homecoming win against East Aurora was first),” Majka said. “It gives us a big confidence boost knowing all teams are sort of going through the division gauntlet right now and it’s nice to know we’re up top of the division” Dunkirk, who sits in first place alongside Olean and Pioneer will be on the road against East Aurora Friday night. “Tim Wade (East Aurora’s head coach) knows what he’s doing over there,” Majka said. “So, we’ll go into the game with a lot of confidence, but that game won’t be easy.” Other big Week 2 winners were Maple Grove, Chautauqua Lake and Frewsburg. Maple Grove is off to an extremely hot start, winning their first two Class D games with relative ease. In what was though to be a grind week-in and

week-out for each member, Maple Grove has made a mockery of it, defeating Portville 36-0 to open the season and I-Prep 38-12 last week. Also in Class D and picking up a big win was Frewsburg, who crushed Nichols 52-16. Frewsburg jumped out early, 36-0 behind running back Thad Johnson. Johnson scored two touchdowns in the first half en route to racking up 189 yards. Head coach Terry Gray’s squad appears to be even better than last year’s 5-3 team. The Bears just barely missed in their opening game against league powerhouse Randolph. In Class DD, Chautauqua Lake might just be separating themselves from the pack earlier than expected. The Thunderbirds blew out Franklinville 44-6 behind senior quarterback and captain Jason McMahon. McMahon threw for two scores, ran one in himself and also intercepted a pass on defense as the Chautauqua Lake led 45-0 heading into the fourth quarter.

Also in Class DD, Forestvile defeated Pine Valley 28-13, Panama defeated Clymer 33-22 and Ellicottville defeated Sherman 22-13. After two weeks only Chautauqua Lake and Panama are still undefeated in league play and interestingly, those two teams won’t square off until Week 6. Meanwhile, the race for the four playoff spots already seems Elsewhere Southwestern continued to roll through Class C South, although got a little bit of a scare from Westfield/Brocton, winning 2114. The Trojans were comfortably ahead 14-0 after a couple of Jake Swan touchdown receptions in the first quarter. But, the offense sputtered a bit from there on out and Westfield trailed by just seven points at halftime. Swan added another touchdown catch for Southwestern. Also in Class C South, Falconer fell to Salamanca 33-18. Back-to-back losses for Mike Genestre’s team is surely not how he wanted the

But, Nick Spitzer’s team will head on the road for their next two games against Westfield and Allegany-Limestone. It wouldn’t surprise me if they were 3-1 heading into their big game with Southwestern. In Class C North, Lafayette was forced to forfeit after having several players suspended. The subsequent 2-0 win moved Bob Ball’s squad to 2-0. Jamestown couldn’t keep up the momentum from a strong opener against Niagara Falls and lost to Orchard Park 31-14. OP jumped out early to a 10-0 lead, but the early dagger came via a Dennis Drew interception, that was returned 70 yards for a score by OP linebacker Ben Johnson, making it 17-0. Forced into a passing game, Drew rallied Jamestown in the second half to push within 10. He tossed one touchdown to Jake Dwaileebe in the third quarter, before finding freshman Zach Panebianco to get the Red Raiders in striking distance. However, OP’s Okoya Anderson put the game out of reach with a 52-yard touchdown run. Silver Creek took out Portville 41-28, but needed to do some from behind again. Portville torched the Black Knights secondary for two long touchdown passes from Portville’s Colte Lowe in the first quarter. Trailing 14-0 heading into the second quarter, Sean Helmer’s squad rebounded rather impressively, though. The three-headed monster of John Jimerson, Zeddie Williams and Anthony Morales took the Black Knights up-and-down the field en route to scoring 34 consecutive points and putting the game out of reach. This sets up a dandy between the Black Knights and Randolph this Friday night.

The Staten Island Yankees swept the Auburn Doubledays by winning 2-1 on Tuesday night League to claim the New York-Penn League championship in 2011. W L After defeating archrival 2 0 Brooklyn in the semi-finals 1 0 two games to one, the Yankees drew the Doubledays, who 1 0 had to win the last two games 1 1 of their semi-final series 1 1 against Vermont to get into the championship. 0 2 After winning Game 1 9-2 0 2 Monday night, the Yankees returned to Richmond County Bank Ballpark for a chance to win the championship. League Yankees left fielder Zachary Wilson got things off to a good W L start by hitting a leadoff homer2 0 un in the bottom of the second 2 0 to give the Yanks a 1-0 lead. 1 1 From there on, the pitching staff that has carried the Yanks 1 1 all year long took over. 1 1 Matt Tracy threw six shutout 1 1 innings before handing it off to 0 2 the bullpen. Tracy, a rookie who had struggled for much of his 0 2 first season, allowed just three base runners and didn’t allow an Auburn runner to reach second base until a two-out double in the sixth inning (which was

also his second last batter). Zach Arneson and Philip Wetherell threw scoreless — and hitless — seventh and eighth innings, respectively to keep the Yankees up 1-0. In the bottom of the eighth, Staten Island added some insurance with their star players Mason Williams and Tyler Austin doing the damage. Williams, a former fourth round pick and center field prospect, led things off with a single. He then advanced to third off a wild pitch and came around to score when Austin singled him home three batters later. But, Auburn wouldn’t go out easily. Carlos Alvarez rudely welcomed in Yankees closer Branden Pinder with a single. When the next batter Matt Skole reached on an error, putting runners on the corners, the Doubledays were more than alive. But Pinder calmed down and gave up a run in favor of a sorely needed out. He got Justin Miller to hit a sacrifice fly and after getting Angelbirth Martina to hit into a force play, the Yanks were one out away from the title. Pinder obliged and got Caleb Ramsey to ground out to first base weakly.

Random Thoughts From Behind The Wheel

Chris Winkler COMMENTARY

If you happen to get to know was me through my weekly colker umn, you’ll begin to occasionally pick up just how big of a ownsports fan I am. one My favorite teams will pop up er, in this space at one time or the another. Often times, I’ll be letting those of you concerned me about my general happiness know how ecstatic I am that the Buffalo Bills or Philadelphia Phillies won. Other times, - I’ll be rambling on about things or that I just really care about. Brace yourself; this is one of those times. er, res- This past weekend, I had the pleasure of heading down to Knoxville, Tenn., to watch the n, Cincinnati Bearcats take on k the host Volunteers. n No, I’m really not a fan of a either team, but that’s not the point. College football is a playoff system away from becoming my favorite sport. Regardless, a good friend of mine is a graduate student at Cincinnati and got us a good deal in the Bearcat student section. Besides when you’re a guy like me, you don’t let a chance to catch a college football game slip away. But, when you spend about 22 hours in a vehicle over the span of four days, you let your mind wander. Friday — Buffalo to Cincinnati. Why can’t every game be like Saints-Packers? Admittedly, I like college more than the pros, but it’s hard to watch a game like that and not yearn for one more quarter — in this case overtime — like a 4-year-old in line at the — grocery store with his mom. But why have I had to been y to the victim of watching terrible football for the last decade, plus? Don’t I deserve to root for a winning team? ay- So every once in a while I get yler to see how real NFL football is played, realize how far away the und Bills are, and then go back to t, thinking about college football. e Saturday — Cincinnati to wild Knoxville. ore How good is the SEC? me It’s 8 a.m. and I’m the only awake — thankfully I’m the ut one doing the driving. The roads are quiet and beautiful SEC country is still sound r asleep like the rest of this gle. mini-van. I feel like a proud Clark Griswold, weaving in between the absolute gorgeous Smokey Mountains that are ere almost good enough to call the trip over right there. But enough about this nature of stuff, is Tennessee any good? The SEC East is wide open. e Georgia lost to Boise State and rth I can’t say they looked very forlay, midable in doing so. Florida is y really just OK and despite the d immense amount of talent on the South Carolina sidelines, kly. Steve Spurrier just doesn’t win a lot of big games. Kentucky and Vanderbilt are, well Kentucky and Vanderbilt. Is this a sneak peak at a potential dark horse in best conference in football? I think so. In the West division, it’s not


even fair. Alabama and LSU are probably the two best teams in the country — apologies to Oklahoma — and Arkansas and Mississippi State are legitimate Top 15 or 20 teams in the country. And oh yea, there’s also Auburn, who won the national championship a year ago and owns the nation’s longest winning streak. Sunday — Knoxville to Cincinnati. Can the Bills really win today? One, Tennessee people are really nice and two, the Tennessee football team is very good. Also, Southwestern could probably hang 30 points on Notre Dame’s “defense”. But like many of you, I spent plenty of the day remembering what happened 10 years ago. Me? I was just a 14-year-old kid starting high school that really didn’t know what was going on. Regardless, from a sports perspective, it’s just one of those magical moments in sports when you realize that it doesn’t matter who wins or loses because we’re all rooting for the same team, the best team in the world. But, the Bills are on my mind too. Heck it’s opening day, and I have been waiting nine long months to completely forget about last season. There’s always that hint of optimism for every sports fan when their team embarks on a new season. But can this offensive line possibly hold back Tamba Hali and the Kansas City Chiefs front seven? Won’t we miss Lee Evans? Can we score enough points? Stopping Jamaal Charles isn’t even worth daydreaming about right now. Monday — Cincinnati to Buffalo. We’re going to the Super Bowl. No doubt about it. Mark it down. Buy your tickets. OK, I’m ahead of myself, its just one game. But, come on, the Bills just obliterated a defending division champion, 41-7. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw four touchdowns and no interceptions. Both of the running backs got going. Stevie Johnson really is that good. Oh, that’s who Scott Chandler is. Su-per Bowl! Su-per Bowl! Need I remind myself it’s just one game. Regardless, the Bills couldn’t have been much better, which is refreshing to say considering it’s often said how they couldn’t have been much worse. They moved the ball with ease and made it relatively difficult for the other team to do the same. Simple huh? But, it was just one game. And these Chiefs aren’t exactly of the 2010 version. Quarterback Matt Cassel was nursing an injury, although it’s hard to imagine Tyler Palko would have done much worse. But they’re also missing star tight end Tony Moeaki and an injury to pro bowl safety Eric Berry depleted their secondary in the first quarter. My point is, it’s nice to blow somebody in your first game, but these Chiefs probably aren’t going to be 10-6 again. On the realistic side, teams don’t just beat the you-knowwhat out of a playoff team on the road and then limp to a four or five win season. This Bills team is good. But just how good remains to be seen. And of course, my 8-8 prediction in last week’s column doesn’t look so far-fetched now does it?

Merchants Crowned Baseball Champs In MSBL By Mark Benton Contributing Writer

For the fourth consecutive year, the Gowanda Merchants Baseball Team has won the Men's Senior Baseball League. Their latest championship was recorded on Sept. 9 with a 3-2 win over the Dunkirk A's. Although the championship game was played in Dunkirk, the Merchants were the designated home team based on their better season record. They had also defeated the A's in both of their regular season meetings. The A's wasted no time in taking the lead as they plated two runs in the top of the first inning. A double by the A's Doug Baker was a key hit for the visitors. Gowanda pitcher Rick Johnson then settled down and only allowed one hit

LEWISTON, N.Y. — Junior Brian McKenna won the medalist crown at the Little Three Championship Tuesday, and the St. Bonaventure golf team finished in second place of the 36-hole tournament played at Niagara Falls Country Club. With his first-place finish, McKenna earned himself an invite to the 2012 Porter Cup — one of the most prestigious amateur golf tournaments in the world — next year right back at Niagara Falls C.C. For the second year in a row, Canisius won the Little Three title with a team score of 619. The Bonnies finished seven shots off the Griffs' pace with a 626, while host Niagara finished well back of the pack with a 660. After shooting an openinground 316, the Brown and White shaped a 310 out the second 18 of the day on the par-70, 6,621-yard championship course. McKenna fired rounds of 4-over 74 and 5-over 75 in extremely gusty winds to

earn the medalist title by one stroke. Senior Kevin Lewis shot an 80 and a 79 to finish second on the Bona roster with a 159. Making their first collegiate appearance on the links, freshmen Brian Jurkiewicz and Pierce Terrance both finished with a two-round total of 162. After opening with an 86, Jurkiewicz responded with the second-best Bonaventure round of the second 18 with a 76 – bested only by medalist McKenna. Terrance was consistent throughout the day, shooting rounds of 80 and 82. Joining the group at 162 — and rounding out the Bona scoring for the day — was Greg Horvath. The junior shot the exact opposite of Terrance, firing rounds of 82 and then 80. The Bonnies will be back in action this coming Sunday and Monday when they host the 23rd Annual Leo Kennan Invitational at Olean's Bartlett Country Club. Niagara will be amongst the field of 11 teams with St. Bonaventure, which has won the title 14 times, including last year when McKenna finished as the medalist.

all-around play and Joey Campion's leadership and toughness. The kids who are returning have worked real hard this summer and we still have high expectations for our program. That won't change.”

SUNY FREDONIA continued from pg 1 “We’ve got an excellent core group of players this year,” Paine said. “We have eight seniors, and that’s more than any other year I’ve been playing. There’s still a lot to be learned but at the same time the guys on the field are all pretty well accustomed team players and we all work extremely well together because we’ve been playing so long together. There’s a strong sense of camaraderie amongst us.” His midfielder partner agreed. “We’ve become a very technical team this year,” Williams said. “At the same time we have a lot to work on still. It’s hard to go 90 minutes straight especially on a field like ours. It’s good because the competition between players is also high and that keeps everybody playing at their best. “Everybody on the team is fighting for his chance to be playing during a game and that really keeps us on top of our game at an individual level. By feeling like we all

have to fight for our spots on the field, it keeps us going as a good team.” However, both players admitted Fredonia still has some work to do if they want to reach their team goals this season. “At the same time, we’re not perfect yet,” Paine said. “We need to get better at getting to the ball and not giving up any corner or penalty kicks, which are undoubtedly our biggest current weakness. It’s important to always be a coachable player, there’s always something new to learn about playing soccer and players’ need to be able to adapt and improve as conditions change from team to team.” There are 14 games left for the Blue Devils and head coach P.J. Gondek. With five more games to be played this month, the Blue Devils are going to be on the road for the next four starting with a trip downstate to play John Jay University.


Golf September 15, 2011 Edition – Sports Section – B

Golf In his first competition in 2003, announcer Dan Hicks described the Presidents Cup sudden-death playoff as “Two heavyweights of golf fighting it out to win the competition.” He was right about one thing — the two players chosen to clash heads to decide the outcome of the event were heavyweights: Tiger Woods, the No. 1 player in the world for the USA, vs. Ernie Els, the homeland hero battling before 23,000 partisan fans watching live and millions on TV — just the kind of ending the fledgling Presidents Cup needed to establish its own identity. But it was not to be, because the golf world was robbed — it was the Showdown at the O.K. Corral, only it wasn’t OK because there wasn’t really a showdown. Captains Conciliatory, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, decided to change the rules after the combatants matched pars for three playoff holes. They said it was getting dark and there was too much pressure for any two people to shoulder, so they declared a tie. “Both Gary and I feel that both teams have won,” said Nicklaus. “What do you think this competition is all about? It’s about goodwill in international golf. It’s not about who wins and loses.” Comments from the Surly Pro: Goodwill??? Golf is boring enough without throwing in goodwill. Who wants to watch Gandhi giving Mother Teresa a 20-footer to halve the match while we all hum “Kumbaya.” In the game paper/ rock/goodwill, everything tops goodwill. How do I know these things? Simple deduction: Who did captain Fred Couples choose with a captain’s pick? Remember, he could have chosen wholesome Keegan Bradley, who (as we are told after every swing by TV announcers) is related to Pat Bradley, a former ladies champion (much female goodwill here); or an amateur like Patrick Cantlay, who shot 60 at the Travelers Championship (much amateur goodwill here). But Couples didn’t — he chose Tiger Woods, proving that Tiger tops goodwill — unless, of course, you count the goodwill of TV executives, advertisers and golf fans everywhere. • 366.9200 (Dunkirk/Fredonia) • 338.0030 (Jamestown)

Insider By T.J. TOMASI


The surly pro on Tiger and the Presidents Cup



Firing up your 3-metal

One of the toughest things for many average golfers to learn is to trust the loft on their 3-metal club. A 3-metal features a clubface with a loft angle from 13 degrees to 16 degrees — for the uninitiated, that’s not a whole lot more to look at than the loft angles found on most drivers (9 degrees to 11 degrees on average). The average golfer’s brain sees a vertical clubface at address that looks as if there is not enough loft to get the ball airborne. So instead of swinging on a shallow path that allows the clubface to sweep along the ground into impact and then take a sliver of divot after impact, the average golfer takes the club up and back down on a steep angle, a mistake from which it is hard to recover. To avoid this, let’s start with ball position. Simply put, many golfers play the ball too far forward, as if they were playing a driver. The problem is, when you’re hitting your driver, the ball is teed up, and you actually want the driver clubhead to be moving upward into the teed ball at

impact. That ABOUT THE WRITER same upward Dr. T.J. motion with a Tomasi is a teaching fairway metal, professional however, is a in Port St. mistake. With Lucie, Fla. Visit his the 3-metal, Web site at address the ball so that it’s about halfway between the center of your stance and your left heel—in other words, off your left chest, or the logo on your shirt. During the backswing, make a conscious effort to take the club back low along the ground; this will allow you to sweep the club on its arc and essentially slide the bottom of the clubhead into the back of the ball at impact. Transfer your weight to your front side by turning your upper body around your front leg as you come into impact. In the followthrough, try to extend your arms and “chase” the ball along the ground with the clubhead.

Note how the clubhead sweeps the ball with weight balance on the balls of the feet. There was no divot from this pro’s swing because this shot was from a tee.

Keep your head behind the ball through impact and extend your arms at the target on your follow-through.


Size matters The famous book “The Search for the Perfect Swing” by Alastair Cochran outlines the idea of doubling the size of the hole to 8.5 inches. His calculations show the likely effects: “(i) the near certainty of holing from six feet, (ii) the virtual elimination of three-putting, and (iii) the very good chance of getting down in two shots from fifty yards.” This was written in the late ‘60s, and now, ’ finally, someone finally did just that. Jack Nicklaus put on a 12-hole tournament featuring the big 8-inch hole as part of Labor Day activities at Muirfield Village. To further encourage fast play, contestants were to be penalized one stroke for every five minutes over the allotted time. The standard cup size of 4.25 inches is, of course, arbitrary to begin with, having been chosen by handiness rather than calculation: It was the size of the pipe lying around the maintenance barn in 1829. It was officially adopted in 1891 by the Royal & Ancient and has been used ever since. The Insider Takeaway: Perhaps they should “outlaw” the belly putter and “in-law” the big hole.

“The physical motion is wrong. To get that stress off his body is a piece of cake — the guys working with him just don’t know. Sean knows some stuff, but what’s going on with Tiger is not correct. That’s why he keeps breaking and that’s why the ball keeps going sideways.” — Rocco Mediate, about Sean Foley, Tiger’s coach. DON’T MISS IT

The Krutch II putter First Adam Scott, then Phil Mickelson and now — you? The Krutch II Putter is a long-shafted putter that anchors in your armpit with a straight arm down the grip — and here is where it’s different: You face the hole while you putt more, like pool. When you face the hole you don’t have the negative optical distortion like you do in traditional putting. It comes in four standard sizes to fit golfers ranging in height from 5 foot 4 inches to 6 foot 4 inches tall. It is available in red, white, blue and black. The putter is USGA conforming, but you must stand to the side of the ball, i.e., you cannot straddle the target line. The Krutch II Putter is $199.99 at

ASK THE PRO Q: I have a short par-3 course in my area, but the longest hole is 80 yards — it’s only nine holes and I’m wondering if it’s much exercise or should I hit the gym instead? — “Bones” R., via email A: Well, Bones, things have changed in the exercise world, and now the experts are advising that even a “little bit” of exercise (10 to 15 minutes a day!) can work wonders for health. And what better way to do it than to walk while you play golf. A very large study by the American Heart Association shows that even when your exercise is less than the 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity a week recommended by the federal government, you still receive benefits. Other recent research suggests that you need to interrupt your sit-to-work routine by getting up and walking around. The same goes for watching TV. USA Today reports that “meeting the guidelines of 150 minutes a week is not enough if you spend

the rest of your time on the sofa or sitting at a computer.” Another study published earlier this summer showed that sitting for more than six hours in a row can increase the risk of death — more so in women than in men. If you are more analytic type, wear a pedometer and measure the number of steps you take every day, Taking 500 to 1,000 steps every few hours is a good goal and 10,000 a day is the total most experts recommend ( pubmed/16901027). Let’s say you play nine holes at 80 yards each and tack on 20 yards for missed greens etc. That totals 100 steps per hole or 900 steps, which satisfies the above recommendations for a two-hour block, plus you get your vitamin D from the sunlight. Then go to the gym. (To Ask the Pro a question about golf, e-mail him at:


How to warm up The purpose of warming up is twofold: It gets the blood flowing into the muscles you’ll need to execute your golf swing, and it allows you time to put aside non-golf concerns so that your mind is free to focus on the task at hand. There are three stages to a proper warm-up routine. (Consult your physician before you try any of them.) 1. Stretching • To stretch your lower back and thighs, stand facing your cart and hold on to the handle of the seat with both hands. Then, slowly bend both knees as you stretch your lower body away from the cart until your arms are fully extended and you are in a squatting position. Hold this position for 10 seconds and then repeat the exercise three times. • To stretch your hips, rest a golf club shaft across your upper back and stand about 30 inches away from the side of your golf cart. Keeping you right foot stationary, plant your left foot onto the floor of the golf cart. Now, with your left leg bent, slowly shift your weight until it’s over your left foot, making sure your left knee does not extend past your toes. Repeat this stretch three times with each leg. • To stretch your shoulders, stand with your back to the cart about 18 inches from the side of the cart. Then, with your left arm at shoulder height, reach back with your left hand and grasp one of the rails that supports the roof of your cart. Now, slowly turn your body away from your extended left arm until you feel the stretch in your left shoulder. Repeat this stretch three times with each arm. 2. Swinging without the ball Start slowly, using a sand wedge and make a continuous series of swings without stopping. Keep going for about a minute. 3. Gradual increase in distance Tee up 10 balls and using a 7-iron, start a series of progressively longer swings. The first three balls should fly about 20 yards, the next five in increasing 10-yard increments (30, 40, 50, etc.) and hit the last using your full swing. One final thought: This should be your warm-up procedure whether you are about to start a practice session or a round of golf. GOLF BY THE NUMBERS

Scrambling scores tell the up/down story The “scrambling” stat on the PGA Tour is defined as “The percent of time a player misses the green in regulation, but still makes par or better.” This is an important stat because it protects your birdies, meaning that if you hit 12 greens in regulation, then you miss six; and if you make three birdies a round and you’re Steve Stricker at 66 percent up/down, then you shoot one under par (six missed greens X .66 up/ down = four pars — two bogies + three birdies = 1 under) vs. if you’re Ernie Els at 47 percent, who would shoot even par (six X .47 = three pars — three bogies birds + three birdies = even par. Multiply that over four rounds, or four strokes more than Stricker, and that is a lot to give away in one tournament. Here are the Top 10 through The Barclays as of Aug 28, 2011: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Ironmen Sweep Opening Weekend Over Chicago seemed to start any worse. Thankfully, they had Joey Ballmer in between the pipes, as the goaltender stopped 11 of 12 Chicago shots in the period. But right before the period ended, a couple of rookies picked up their goaltender and the rest of the team as Nick Bingaman scored on an assist from Zack Szajner to combine on the first goal in team’s history. Ironic a few players playing in their first NAHL game scored the first goal for NAHL’s newest team. “Before the game we were all pretty nervous, but personally I was just excited to get the season going,” Zack Szajner said. “There was a nice crowd in Chicago and it created a great environment to get that first game under my belt. At first the game was a little slow and sloppy, but once we all got settled in, it was like any other game.” From then on, it was all Jamestown. Anthony Stempin scored seven minutes into the second period and Drew Slaton — who assisted on Stempin’s goal — got one of his own just 30 seconds later to give Jamestown some breathing room. In the third, Wes Elrod scored

If there was ever a way to start a season, especially an inaugural season, head coach Dan Daikawa and the Jamestown Ironmen might have just done it this past weekend. Visiting the Chicago Hitmen for two games Friday and Saturday night, the Ironmen went out and swept the weekend series with a 4-1 win Friday night followed by a 7-5, come-frombehind victory that at least momentarily put the Ironmen in first place in their division. “It is always a good note to start the season off with,” said assistant captain Jon Smith. “It helps build confidence throughout the team.” However Friday’s game wasn’t exactly the ideal start. After being given a power play to start the game (due to a player crossing the red line in warmups) and a two-man advantage just a minute into the game, the Ironmen couldn’t manage to score. After Mike Fazio scored for Hitmen and the Ironmen took a penalty on the next shift, things couldn’t have

with assists from Stempin and Bingaman to give the Ironmen an easy 4-1 victory. “After Friday nights win, there was a different attitude among the guys,” Zack Szajner said. “We all got that monkey off our back. The first game there were a lot of jitters, but night two we got to settle in and play our game.” It was the same old story, though, Saturday as the Ironmen dug themselves a big hole, trailing 2-0 early and 4-2 after two periods of play. “Honestly our first win made us a little too loose for the

game on Saturday night,” Smith said. After trading goals since the 2-0 score, Jamestown again started the scoring in the third period with Bingaman’s second of the season a minute into the period. However, when Chicago again answered the goal with one of their own, things seemed over with Jamestown trailing 5-3 with a little more than 11 minutes left to play. “Coach (Daikawa) kept preaching to trust and believe in each other,” Smith said. “He really made us come together

a shot harder than most players in the league, and when I saw an opportunity to get him the puck with an open lane for a shot, I had to, and he buried it.” Later, Drew Slaton put the finishing touches on Chicago, scoring the team’s seventh goal with assists from Beaulieu and Aaron Arm. “In the 3rd period we came out and played the game the way we are suppose to play it,” Smith said.

Corey Beaulieu started the scoring at the halfway mark and Anthony Coles netted the equalizer three-and-a-half minutes later. “Once we were able to simplify our game and play mistake free hockey we took over,” Zack Szajner said. Zack Szajner played a big role in the eventual game-winner as the Ironmen were given a power play with less than five minute remaining in the game. Zack Szajner found Elrod up top and the defenseman drilled in his second goal of the season. Interesting considering Elrod went scoreless in 44 games last year. “Going into this possession we just wanted to slow things down and get quality shots,” Zack Szajner said. “(Elrod) is our biggest threat on the power play.

Djokovic Completes Season With U.S. Open Win, Third Major Of Season

Contributed Article Associated Press

NEW YORK — Bothered by pain in his back, ribs and cramping legs, Novak Djokovic was face-down beside the court in Arthur Ashe Stadium, getting massaged by a trainer. Having dropped a set against defending champion Rafael Nadal, Djokovic's grip on the U.S. Open final appeared to be starting to slip away and, worse, his body was breaking down. His confidence? That, more than any particular stroke, is what Djokovic credits with transforming him from a top player to a great one -- and it never wavered one bit Monday night. Producing a nearly perfect performance to match his nearly perfect season, the No. 1-ranked Djokovic returned brilliantly, whipped winners from all angles and beat No. 2 Nadal 6-2, 6-4, 6-7 (3), 6-1 in a match chock-full of lengthy, mesmerizing points to earn the first U.S. Open championship of his career and third Grand Slam trophy of 2011. "In big matches, the winner is decided by small margins, a couple points. I guess the winner is the one who believes in victory more," said Djokovic, who is 64-2 with 10 tournament titles. "I guess it just clicked in my head. Through the last couple of years, I didn't change my game in any major way. ... But I'm hitting shots that maybe I wasn't hitting," he explained. "I'm going for it. I'm more aggressive." It's sure working, particularly against the man he replaced atop the rankings, Nadal. A year ago, it was Nadal who won three major titles, includ-

ing a win over Djokovic in the final at Flushing Meadows. That defeat helped Djokovic realize he was being too passive at key moments on his sport's most important stages and set him on a path that's led to one of the greatest seasons in the history of men's tennis — or any sport, for that matter. "I've had an amazing year," Djokovic said, "and it keeps going." Nadal led their head-to-head series 16-7 at the end of 2010. And since? Djokovic is 6-0 against Nadal this year, all in tournament finals — three on hard courts, including Monday; two on clay; and one on grass at Wimbledon. Djokovic also won the Australian Open in January, and is only the sixth man in the 40-plus years of the Open era to win three major titles in a single season. "Obviously I'm disappointed," Nadal said, "but you know what this guy is doing is unbelievable." With a couple of months left, Djokovic can set his sights on the best win-loss record in the modern era: John McEnroe went 82-3 in 1984, although that only included two Grand Slam titles, because he lost in the French Open final and didn't enter the Australian Open. Roger Federer was 81-4 in 2005 with two majors, exiting twice in the semifinals. Rod Laver (1962, 1969) and Don Budge (1938) are the only men to win all four Grand Slam tournaments in a year. The biggest change Nadal has noticed in Djokovic? "He's confident enough in every moment to keep believing in one more ball, one more ball," Nadal said. "His forehand is not more painful than before. His backhand is not more painful than before. Serve's the same."

Of all of Djokovic's skills, the one that separated him the most Monday was his return. He repeatedly sent serves back at Nadal's feet, forcing errors or giving Djokovic control of the point. That helped Djokovic accumulate an astounding 26 break points and convert 11. Consider this: When Nadal completed his career Grand Slam by winning last year's U.S. Open, he was broken a total of five times in seven matches. Another telling statistic: Four times Monday, Nadal broke Djokovic — only to have Djokovic break right back in the next game. That's exactly what happened in the third game of the second set, which lasted 17 minutes and featured a bit of everything: 22 points; eight deuces; six break points; a time violation warning against Nadal (Djokovic was admonished later in the set); complaints by both men that the glare from the stadium

Lions Top Bucs For First Opening Win Since 2007 Contributed Article Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. — The Detroit Lions picked up where they left off last year and are building confidence with each victory. A season-opening 27-20 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday already has them off to their best start since 2007, although coach Jim Schwartz stressed that it's important to keep a turnabout that began in December in perspective. The Lions have won five consecutive regular-season games. Throw in a perfect preseason this summer and they've won the last nine times they've taken the field. “I think that we will leave it right where it is. We won our first game of the season,” Schwartz said. “Preseason doesn't count for anything. ... Last year was obviously last year. We have a long way to go, there's a lot of improvement we can make as a football team. We're not going to worry about that or anything else. What we need to worry about is playing the best we can play.” Matthew Stafford threw for 305 yards and three touchdowns and was not sacked, showing what he could mean to Detroit's chances of ending a decade of futility and making the playoffs if he's healthy. The improved Lions defense pressured Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman, held Tampa

Bay's running game in check, and didn't allow an offensive touchdown until there were less than two minutes remaining. Even more encouraging, Detroit prevailed despite Stafford having an interception returned for a touchdown, special teams allowing a long kickoff return that set up a field goal, and several costly penalties, including an unsportsmanslike conduct call that stopped the clock and gave Freeman a chance to lead a potential gametying drive at the end. “I don't want to discount the value of a win, particularly a win on the road, but we've got to play a lot better than we played today,” Schwartz said. “We had way too many mistakes that kept Tampa in this game. I guess a sign of a good team is you can have those mistakes and still come out with a win. But we did some things that are inexcusable and they will not continue.” Stafford completed 24 of 33 passes, including TD throws of 1 and 36 yards to Calvin Johnson and 11 yards to Tony Scheffler. The interception he threw glanced off the hands of intended receiver Will Heller and was returned 28 yards by Aqib Talib for the lone touchdown Tampa Bay managed until Freeman threw a 5-yard scoring pass to Mike Williams with 1:35 remaining. The Lions, who haven't finished with a winning record since 2000, lost four straight

to begin 2010. Stafford was hurt in the opener and went on to miss 13 of the team's remaining 15 games. Stafford, who missed 19 games over the past two seasons because of injuries, led four scoring drives of at least 70 yards against a defense that was on its heels most of the day. The Lions outgained the Bucs 147 yards to 4 in the opening quarter and finished with a 431-313 advantage in total offense. Johnson had six receptions for 88 yards. His 36-yard TD reception came on a perfectly thrown ball on fourthand-2, and the 6-foot-5 receiver reached above Talib to make an acrobatic grab on a lob throw for the 1-yard TD that put Detroit up 27-13 in the third quarter. “We have so much confidence in him,” Johnson said of Stafford. “He puts it up there for me, I've got to go get it. He's our coach on the field.” Freeman, selected 16 spots behind No. 1 overall pick Stafford in the 2009 draft, was 28 of 43 for 245 yards. He was intercepted once and sacked twice. “It's really frustrating because we felt like, for sure going into it, it was a winnable game. ... We just have to find a way to score points earlier,” said Freeman, whose growth a year ago during his first season as a starter keyed a surprising 10-6 finish that nearly produced a playoff berth. “You hate to start the season out 0-1, but it's the first game of the year,” Freeman added. “It's not going to make or break anybody.”

lights was bothersome; seven exchanges that lasted at least 10 strokes. After a 28-shot point, Djokovic leaned over and put his hands on his knees, his chest heaving. Nadal was the one who faltered, though. He double-faulted to set up break point No. 6, then — on a great defensive lob by Djokovic — put an overhead into the net. More remarkable than all those breaks of serve was the way Djokovic seemed to break the will of the reliably relentless and indefatigable Nadal. At the end of the first set, when Djokovic reeled off six games in a row, and at the end of the match, Nadal wasn't even chasing Djokovic's shots. "It was a tough match," said Nadal, who owns 10 major titles. "Physical, mental, everything." Yes, and Djokovic turned this U.S. Open final rematch into something of a mismatch. He entered this year with one

Grand Slam title, at the 2008 Australian Open. Djokovic attributes his surge to a variety of factors, including a vastly improved serve, better fitness — owing, at least in part, to a gluten-free diet he doesn't like to discuss in any detail — and, mostly, a seemingly endless reservoir of self-belief dating to December, when he led Serbia to its first Davis Cup title. Djokovic began a 43-match winning streak there, a run that ended with a semifinal loss to Federer in the French Open semifinals. The only other blemish on Djokovic's 2011 record was a loss to Andy Murray in last month's Cincinnati Masters final, where Djokovic stopped playing while trailing, citing a painful shoulder. That was the 24-year-old Serb's last match before heading to Flushing Meadows. His shoulder was fine in New York, clearly, and while he was treated by a trainer and took painkilling pills in the late going Monday — which is why his serves slowed to the 90s mph in the fourth set — he overcame it. With both men playing fantastic, court-covering defense in a grueling contest that lasted 4 hours, 10 minutes, there were more than two dozen points that lasted at least 15 strokes. Djokovic quickly turned things around after falling behind 2-0 in each of the first two sets. Those were tiny deficits compared to what he dealt with in the semifinals Saturday: He lost the first two sets to Federer, then faced two match points at 5-3, 40-15, before smacking a cross-court return winner that sent him on the way to taking the last four games. By backing up that victory on

Monday, Djokovic became only the second man to defeat Federer and Nadal during the course of one Grand Slam tournament. Juan Martin del Potro did it en route to the 2009 U.S. Open title. The only time Djokovic truly faltered at all in the final was in the crucible of the third set, when he showed signs of being bothered by his lower back. His level dipped, and Nadal made one last stand. Djokovic went up 3-2 only to get broken, then served for the match at 6-5 and was broken again when he made two unforced errors, the second at the end of a 21-stroke exchange. "When I lost that third set, it wasn't fun," Djokovic said. "I knew I wasn't physically there." But in the fourth set, Djokovic was in control from the start, breaking in the second game with a forehand winner, then cruising from there. When Djokovic ended it with another forehand winner, he raised his arms, then tossed aside his racket and dropped to the court. He pulled off his shirt and threw it into the stands, then put on a dark hat with "FDNY" written on it — a nod to Sunday's 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, which both he and Nadal mentioned during the trophy ceremony. "The bottom line is that that's the whole point — to win Grand Slams — because these are the tournaments most important and most valuable in our sport," Djokovic said. "Right now I feel drained emotionally and physically and mentally." Then, motioning with his right hand at the silver chalice that forever will carry his engraved name, Djokovic added: "But I have this trophy here, and this is what I was fighting for."

Newton Sets Rooking Passing Record, But Panthers Fall To Cards

Contributed Article Associated Press

GLENDALE, Ariz. — All that was missing in Cam Newton's spectacular NFL debut was a victory. For all of his big passing plays and Arizona's many miscues, the Cardinals beat Newton's Panthers 28-21 on Sunday. Newton threw for 422 yards and two touchdowns, setting the record for yards passing by a rookie in his NFL debut and tying Matthew Stafford's mark for most yards by a rookie in any game. Newton earned the respect of his opponents in the process. “He's a big, athletic, strong quarterback,” Arizona inside linebacker Paris Lenon said. “The guy can run the ball and throw the ball well. He's definitely going to be a major force in this league.” Newton's big numbers came even though the playbook he's using remains limited. “We really had to pare it back an awful lot and it's going to grow each week,” first-year Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. Newton completed 24 of 37 passes with one interception. “He was everything everybody didn't expect him to be,” said Steve Smith, who caught eight of those passes for 178 yards, including TDs of 77 and 26 yards. “He was on point, he made some great runs, he made some great reads, made some fantastic throws. He made some throws out there that honestly as a receiver it made it easy to catch them.” The statistics seemed to mean little to the big, young quar-

terback, who was unbeaten in his BCS championship season at Auburn. “The last time I lost a game was Navarro Junior College,” Newton said. “What do you want me to say, it feels great? It is not a comfortable feeling for me.” The Panthers had first down at the Arizona 11 late in the game, and even got an extra down on an offside call, but failed to score. “There's going to be a lot more things I can look back on tomorrow after I watch the film,” Newton said. “One thing I know is you have to capitalize. When you're in the red zone, you can't take the sack, you can't digress.” Newton overshadowed a nice Arizona debut for Kevin Kolb, who was 18 for 27 for 309 yards, including touchdown passes of 48 and 70 yards. Kolb talked about the negatives, most significantly Arizona getting inside the Carolina 6 twice in the second quarter and coming up empty. “You look at what could have been,” he said. “When you go back and analyze it I think you are going to see that besides five plays, we dominated them. Even on defense, they could probably say the same thing. That's a big deal for us.” Arizona trailed 21-14 going into the final quarter before Kolb connected with Early Doucet for the 70-yard score. Then rookie Patrick Peterson, the No. 5 overall pick in the draft who had trouble with Smith much of the day, took a punt back 89 yards for what proved to be the game-winning score.

“With me being a defensive back, I barely have a chance to get my hands on the ball,” Peterson said. “That's why I love punt returns so much.” Peterson began to strut, not realizing Carolina's Mike Goodson was gaining on him. Peterson glanced around, realized the error of his ways, and sprinted away, diving over the goal line to put Arizona ahead 28-21 with 7:15 to play. It was the second-longest punt return in franchise history. “Yeah, he was pretty close,” Peterson said. Kolb said “anybody else fair catches that thing.” “That just shows you the confidence that he has in himself and how tough of a kid he is,” Kolb said. “He's going to be a major weapon for us.” With the help of a roughing-the-passer penalty against Clark Haggans, the Panthers drove downfield late and had first down at the 11. Four consecutive passes were incomplete, but an offside penalty on fourth down moved the ball to the Arizona 5 and gave Carolina one more chance. Newton threw over the middle to Goodson to the 2, but he was a yard shy of the first down and the Cardinals ran out the clock. “I don't think it's about survival, I think it's about overcoming,” Doucet said. “It says a lot about our team and our coaching staff. Last year we had some of those same situations and we didn't come out with a win. We ended up losing the game.”

“It nd r e me up

we are improved over last year and I thought we'd play well. I believe in our men, and they went out and did some very good things today." It started with the opening kickoff. Dexter McCluster fumbled the return to give Buffalo prime field position, and Fitzpatrick hit Chandler moments later from 4 yards out for a 7-0 lead. The Bills tacked on another score later in the first quarter and never looked back. "We felt like we knew we were going in for seven when we got that turnover," said Fitzpatrick, who finished with 208 yards passing. "That was a great start to the game." Fred Jackson added 112 yards rushing for the Bills, who hadn't scored 40 points in an opener since beating the Los Angeles Rams 40-7 on Sept. 6, 1992. Chandler came in with one catch in 14 career games. He had five for 63 yards against Kansas City's inept pass defense, which was missing Eric Berry most of the game after the star safety sustained a knee injury in the first quarter.

56 yards on the ground -even though he was facing a defense that ranked last in stopping the run last season. The Bills didn't have much problem stopping it Sunday. They didn't have much problem with anything. "We had a chance to make some plays and we didn't make them," Chiefs coach Todd Haley said. Even when Kansas City put together a promising drive, things went haywire. Cassel appeared to find tight end Leonard Pope from 19 yards out for a touchdown early in the second quarter. The officials reviewed the play, though, and determined Pope's left knee came down out of bounds while he was still juggling the ball. Cassel was sacked by Spencer Johnson on the next play, and Ryan Succop missed a field goal. Buffalo promptly went 50 yards for a field goal and a 17-0 lead, and added another field goal after Charles fumbled on the first play of the Chiefs' ensuing possession. The Bills scored 20 or more

points four times last season; they had that many with 5:38 left in the first half Sunday. "When things started going bad, they just went bad," Chiefs defensive tackle Kelly Gregg said. "Landslide." Kansas City finally mounted a scoring drive that Cassel finished off with a short touchdown pass to Charles, but Chandler added his second TD grab after the break, and Fitzpatrick tossed his fourth TD pass when he found Donald Jones later in the third quarter. There was a somber atmosphere at Arrowhead Stadium most of the day, and not just because of the score. As one of the main venues selected by the NFL for Sept. 11 tributes, a field-sized American flag was unfurled before the game. American Idol winner David Cook sang the national anthem, and military flyovers were conducted before kickoff and again at halftime. Gailey earned a measure of revenge against a team that fired him a couple of years ago. "It feels good," Gailey said. "You're lying if you say it doesn't. It does."

Women’s Soccer Defeat Penn State-Behrend At Clarion Classic Contributed Article

Fredonia State Sports Information

A long shot by Catie Hale skipped off the wet grass and into the net early in overtime as Fredonia State defeated Penn State Behrend, 1-0, in the final game of the 2011 Clarion Classic at University Stadium. As the Blue Devils (2-2-0) and Lions (2-3-0) battled through 90 minutes of regulation, nightfall arrived and heavy dew formed on the University Stadium grass. Hale took advantage of the conditions when she fired a seemingly innocent shot from about 40 yards away. The ball bounced once and skidded high over the right shoulder of Behrend goalkeeper Heather Klimuszka. Time of the goal was 3:37 into the overtime. Klimuszka finished with eight saves while Fredonia State's Meaghan Meszaros stopped four to earn the shutout. The win securred second place for the Blue Devils while University of Rochester claimed the title. The Yellowjackets (4-0-0) won both their games, including a 2-0 victory Saturday over the Mount Union Purple Raiders.

Elizabeth Martens and Ellen Coleman scored first-half goals and Bridget Lang made two saves for Rochester. Coleman was selected tournament MVP. The goal by Martens began as a corner kick, followed by a scramble in front of the net. Coleman's goal was off her own rebound follwing a shot from within the 18-yard line. The victory lifted the Yellowjackets to 4-0 while Mount Union fell to 3-2-1. 2011 CLARION CLASS ALLTOURNAMENT TEAM Most Valuable Player: University of Rochester senior forward Ellen Coleman. Rochester — junior defender Kristina Diaz, junior goalkeeper Bridget Lang and junior forward Rachel Wesley. Fredonia State — junior goalkeeper Meaghan Meszaros, senior forward Reilly Condidorio and junior defender Maddie Brown. Penn State Behrend — senior midfielder Lindsey Steinsdorferdorfer and sophomore midfielder Sam Vasy. Mount Union — junior midfielder-forward Jackie Lowdermilk and junior midfielder Aly Rice.

Martinez just eight yards in front of the net to beat goalkeeper Mitchell Mack. However — unlike in its loss to Radford — the Bonnies had a counter to the early strike, this time from sophomore James Reed. For the third game in a row, the Illinois native found the back of the net, as his finish in the 38th minute started the Bona comeback. Vanino found Reed in the box with a pass, and from 15 yards out he floated a shot over the head of HPU keeper Michael Chesler. The goal came just four minutes after another shot by Reed caromed off the post. "James Reed had a great weekend," Mahler commented. "The game-tying goal he scored was a very composed, clever finish in chopping the ball over the goalkeeper." The score remained knotted through the close of regulation, but it was High Point with the better run of play throughout much of the second half. Following a Reed shot in the 65th minute, the Panthers fired off seven shots in the final 25 minutes of regulation while the Bonnies did not attempt a single one. After trips to Virginia and North Carolina each of the past two weeks, Bonaventure will return home for its first home game in three weeks on Friday against Canisius. Kickoff opposite the Little Three rival is set for 4 p.m. from McGraw-Jennings Field on the St. Bonaventure campus.

St. Bonaventure Sports Information

WEST POINT, N.Y. — After falling behind in the 16th minute, St. Bonbaventure senior midfielder Hannah Lapp bent in a corner kick to help the Bonnies (4-2-1) secure a 1-1 double-overtime tie with Virginia Military Institute (22-1) Sunday afternoon at the Army Soccer Classic.

Lapp knotted the score for good in the 22nd minute, as she lifted a high, bending corner kick just inside the far post after Dakota Carroll's shot was deflected. St. Bonaventure limited the Keydets to just three shots over the final 65 minutes and earned a 39-8 shots advantage overall. VMI's Amanda Berrios turned aside a game-high 12 shots in goal to preserve the draw,

including diving stops and deflections off the crossbar that kept SBU from victory. SBU keeper Megan Junker (32-1) made five saves and has a 0.74 goals against average in over 609 minutes of action between the pipes this year. St. Bonaventure concludes the Army Soccer Classic with a 1-0-1 mark that is currently good for a first-place tie with

host Army. The final standings and All-Tournament team will be announced at the conclusion of this afternoon's contest between Sacred Heart and the Black Knights. The Bonnies remain unbeaten in their last four games (3-01) and will return to action on Friday against Canisius in the first game of the Big 4 Tournament hosted by Niagara University.

St. Bonaventure Sports Information

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The men's tennis team wrapped up its season-opening weekend this past Sunday morning at the Navy Blue Invite against Binghamton. Playing out of the No. 5 singles slot, sophomore Javier Ortiz was blanked in the first set, but responded to defeat Ruben Haggai, 0-6, 6-4, 1-0 (10-6), to earn the lone SBU win of the match. The invite did not count toward a team's overall record; however, individual matches did count toward a player's record. The match against the Bearcats was the third in as many days for the Bonnies, who faced Temple on Saturday for the first time since April 2006. Against the Owls, freshman Trevor Haskell picked up his first collegiate win as he

teamed with Ortiz at No. 3 doubles to defeat Stanislav Stekolshikov and Li Tang, 9-7. Luis Guevara picked up the lone SBU singles win of the match as he downed Stekolshikov, 7-6 (7-4), 7-5.

Buffalo Sabres, Alumni Help Celebrate Completion Of Miracle League Field Contributed Article Buffalo Sabres PR

The Buffalo Sabres and the Buffalo Sabres Alumni Association were on hand today to help celebrate the completion of the Miracle League of Western New York Field Presented by the Buffalo Sabres, a baseball field and complex designed for children with disabilities. The Sabres, through its Buffalo Sabres Foundation, and the Buffalo Sabres Alumni Association each donated $75,000 for the construction of the complex. The completion of the complex, which is located in Grand Island’s Veterans Park, was celebrated with a one-inning baseball game with representatives of the Sabres playing alongside 40 participants of the Miracle League of WNY. The complex will serve as the playing field for The Miracle League of WNY, the local chapter of the nationally organized Miracle League, which provides the opportunity for disabled athletes from around the country to play organized baseball. Besides a specially designed playing surface, the complex features a concession stand and bathrooms that are wheelchair accessible.

Fundraising for the field began in July 2010 and quickly attracted the attention of the Sabres, the Sabres Alumni, the Town of Grand Island and several other corporate sponsors, all of whom donated time, money and resources to build the complex. Members of the Buffalo Sabres Alumni Foundation were on hand in April 2011 for the groundbreaking and construction was completed four months later, well ahead of the one to two years it usually takes for a project of this kind. “We are extremely thankful for the support from the Buffalo Sabres and the Buffalo Sabres Alumni, not only for their donation but also for their involvement in our organization,” said Teresa Hooper, the president of the Miracle League of Western New York. “It means a lot to our players and volunteers to have their heroes cheer them on and show their support.” “Our volunteers were excited to find Larry Playfair working in the mud and stone right along with us on a daily basis, as well as Rene Robert helping with construction and staining of the picnic tables,” Hooper added. Both the Sabres and the

Sabres Alumni Association are committed to providing support to non-profit organizations in the Western New York area that are dedicated to making the region a better place to live and work. “We’re always looking to help worthwhile organizations that share the same beliefs about making our community a better place for everyone,” said Playfair, President of the Sabres Alumni Association. “The Miracle League of WNY will be making sports available to everyone, regardless of their ability, and we think that’s very important. We’re thrilled to be a part of this project.” The official opening of the Miracle League Field of Western New York Field Presented by the Buffalo Sabres will be on Sept. 11, when the Miracle League of WNY will host an open house at the complex from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend and tour the facilities, as well as find out how to get involved with the league.

Fans and 5991 fellow drivers enjoy the conflict, but Johnson needs to put the feud aside as quickly as possible or risk letting it spoil his Chase hopes. “I think it’s going to be a great Chase for the fans, exciting ones for the drivers this year,” he said. “I think it’s real difficult to pick a clear favorite.”


Busch, Johnson clash in Virginia

With lineup set in Richmond, 2011 Chase starts in Chicago



2,012; tied for first

After a mediocre summer, the No. 29 team went back to the setups they were running earlier in the year and now appear to be poised to challenge for the title. “We went back and looked at the races that we felt like we were the fastest at the beginning of the year, and we put that stuff in at Atlanta and we ran in the top 5 all day and came [to Richmond] and did the things we traditionally do and had a solid weekend from the time the car unloaded off the lift gate,” he said.


Jeff Gordon (finished third) 2,009; behind -3

He’s been the hottest driver on the circuit the past three weeks and shows no signs of slowing down. “To win three races [so far this season], to run the way we have and just gain the momentum, have a shot at winning [at Richmond], man, this team could not be more pumped and excited about getting this Chase started,” he said. “And Chicago is a great track for us.”


Matt Kenseth (finished 23rd) 2,006; behind -6

Richmond was, in his words, “a disaster,” but he has been fast in recent weeks and is one of the drivers who has momentum heading into the Chase. “We didn’t finish all those races up there, but we had three kinds of different tracks, and I thought we had a topthree or -four car at all three of those tracks,” he said. “I know we got top 10s, but I knew we needed to do a little better than that. I feel pretty good going to Chicago.”




Kurt Busch (finished fifth) 2,003; behind -9

He seems to be enjoying trying to play mind games with Johnson, and his Penske Dodge team, including teammate Brad Keselowski, has come on strong this season. “We always get to answer questions that maybe we’re behind the eight ball by only having two Dodges out there, but we put both of them in the Chase,” he said. “Both guys now have a shot at the championship. It’s been a great, solid season for us.”


Ryan Newman (finished eighth) 2,003; behind -9

After missing the Chase last year, he and his veteran crew chief, Tony Gibson, have been rock solid this season. He said he’s “really thankful for everything that Tony Gibson and all the guys have done. Pit stops have been much better, communication has been much better. We just really have to shine up everything and sharpen our pencils and make sure we’ve got everything ready to go for the next 10 races … We’ve won a battle, now we have to win the war.”


Tony Stewart (finished seventh) 2,000; behind -12

With just three topfive finishes this season, he’s had a sub-par

season to date, but he’s picked up the pace in the past few weeks, and run strong enough to remain in the top 10 even though he’s winless so far. He said he likes his underdog position. “It’s the least amount of pressure for us than any other teams out there right now,” he said. “I feel like the last two weeks it’s kind of shown what this team is capable of and the strength behind it to be in this kind of a clutch situation and get ourselves in [the Chase].”


Dale Earnhardt Jr. (finished 16th) 2,000; behind -12

His three top-five and nine top-10 finishes are the fewest of any Chase driver. He barely made the cut, and his team at this point does not look like a title contender. He’s still looking for his first win of the season. “We had a pretty good run at it going the first 15 races, and for whatever reason we sort of fell off and forgot some things or over-engineered something,” he said. “But we need to look hard at what we’re doing.”


Brad Keselowski (finished 12th) 2,000; behind -12

He’s been the surprise story of the season so far, with three wins, two of them coming after he broke an ankle in a crash at Road Atlanta. He’s one of the two wild card drivers, so he gets no bonus points as the standings are reset. He said he and his team still have some work to do. “If we can find a little bit more speed I feel like we can be a serious contender in the championship,” he said. “We’re doing a good job executing. I feel like we’re out-finishing what we’ve got for speed, and that’s what good teams do.”


Denny Hamlin (finished ninth) 2,000; behind -12

After coming so close to winning the title in 2010, he’s stumbled through the regular season and barely squeaked into the Chase by way of the final wildcard spot. “There’s only one place to go from where we’re at right now, and that’s forward,” he said. “We’re very fortunate to be here, obviously, with the tough season that we’ve had and the ups and downs and the [Did Not Finishes] and whatnot. It’s kind of a second lease on life for us and our season.”

Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Jeff Gordon and Brad Keselowski seem to have the most momentum heading in the season-ending, 10race Chase for the Sprint Cup, but it’s a run-in between two former series champions that has fans buzzing as the circuit heads to Chicagoland Speedway for Sunday’s Chase opener. Kurt Busch and Jimmie Johnson had two incidents during the Wonderful Pistachios 400 at Richmond International Raceway on Saturday night. Busch spun Johnson early in the race through contact he says was unintentional. Johnson believed otherwise, and spun Busch later in the race. The second incident did little harm to Busch’s car, as he finished fifth. Johnson spent time behind the wall while his team repaired his car, and he wound up 31st. It was another in an ongoing series of runins between the two, the most recent of which occurred in the closing laps at Pocono Raceway last month. Busch said Johnson was the culprit this time. “Well, we had 398 other laps, and with the way that we raced each other, I got into [Turn One] hot, locked up my left front [brakes], slid up into him,” Busch said. “And then you could just see the payback coming from a five-time chump.” Busch also said on TV – but later denied saying – that he’s getting under Johnson’s skin, as evidenced by the retaliatory move. “That’s not something you see from Jimmie Johnson every day, so I know we’re in his head,” Busch said. “If we’re going to race this way, he’s got to worry that there are ten other guys in this Chase, not just the 22.” Johnson said the incidents are a byproduct of NASCAR’s relaxed rules on wrecking and retaliation. “I think that we’ve seen it from the start of the season, and even last year and in other times,” he said. “When someone feels wronged, a lot of times people are going to take that opportunity to get even and settle it, then and go on with it. “So it seems to be turning that way, absolutely. I can remember an instance at Homestead last year. I can remember stuff, a lot of different places, a lot of things going on. The ‘Boys have at it,’ certain things are in effect.” Johnson said he isn’t looking for trouble in the future, but he also said he planned to stand his ground. “I have no intentions to run people over,” he said. “The incidents that have happened have been accidental in the past when [Busch] was in the 2 car. He knows that, and moving forward, I’m just not going to let people run our race car over. There’s been a lot of contact going on, and that’s why I retaliated [Saturday].” But Johnson also said that neither he nor Busch will benefit from an ongoing feud. “Moving forward, I think we’ve raced together the last two weeks, three weeks and been just fine on the race track,” he said. “We can do it. It can be done. We had eight, nine years before that where everything was fine. It’s possible, and I think it’s in both of our best interests, to get it behind us and go forward.” There’s no clear winner as yet in the Johnson-Busch battle, other than the people looking for a little something extra to spice up things. Matt Kenseth said he’s enjoying the dust-ups, and he’s also glad he’s not involved. “I will tell you, it’s nice to not be in any of that stuff,” he said. “I love watching it. It’s great, great entertainment, seeing what’s all going on. “Everybody likes conflict, I guess, to a point. Most people don’t like to be a part of it, but it’s fun to watch.”

Harvick folds Nationwide, Truck series teams to focus on Cup Kevin Harvick said last week that he’s shutting down his Kevin Harvick Inc. race teams so he can focus on his day job at Richard Childress Racing, and the goal there of winning the Sprint Cup championship. Harvick won’t field any Camping World Truck Series teams next year, and his two Nationwide teams will be folded into the RCR camp. Harvick’s decision also says a lot about the struggles facing independent teams in NASCAR’s Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series. If his team, which has been a consistent winner of races and championships, can’t make it work, especially in the truck series where it has 39 victories, who can? “I think when you look at the expectations that we put on the company to race, it obviously … costs us more to race the vehicles than probably some of the other people with no overhead,” he said. “The truck series is a great series. It is a lot of fun. I would love to continue driving some races in the truck series as we move forward. It’s just a point where we felt like we needed to make some decisions from a business standpoint… “Sometimes you just feel like you have got to get something out of it. We were winning races and loved to be a part of that, but, in the end it’s business.” But that doesn’t mean it was an easy decision.

“Obviously one of the hardest conversations I had to have was with Ron [Hornaday Jr.], telling him where everything was going, and he was a big part of helping us to get to the point that we are at today,” Harvick said. “It is fun, don’t get me wrong, it is fun to go out and win truck races and be a part of it. We have been able to win championships, and I think that’s one of the great things about where we are at with the decision.” But he said his bigger goal is to win the Cup title, and that’s where his focus is now. “This is no knock on anything, but really the only thing that I want to do that we have not been able to accomplish in my career is win a Sprint Cup championship,” he said. “Cup cars make it all go around. Richard [Childress] and I have talked about this a lot. Without the Cup car being successful on Sunday or Saturday night whatever the case may be, trucks don’t exist, Nationwide cars don’t exist and the sponsors aren’t there. “We are lucky that the sponsors are all there and things have gone good over the last several years. That Cup championship is what we are after.” And not having a race team to run should make that goal easier to reach. Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 29 Chevrolet, celebrates with a burnout after winning “It takes an extreme amount of pressure off of me as a driver and an owner,” Saturday’s Sprint Cup Series Wonderful Pistachios 400 at Richmond International he said.

A Masterpiece Amidst The Autumn Foliage The Graycliff Estate The Graycliff Estate, designed by renowned American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, is a masterpiece of his mid-career Organic Style. Located south of Buffalo, NY on the shores of Lake Erie, Graycliff awaits your discovery. A world away from the work-aday world, Graycliff was designed for the pleasure of Isabelle R. Martin, the wife of industrialist Darwin D. Martin. With breath taking views over the lake, and the tranquility of three buildings set amidst more than eight acres of grounds and gardens-all designed by Wright-Graycliff has become known nationally as one of his most gracious residences. Designed between 1926 and 1931 as the summer estate of the Martin family (for whom Wright also designed a city residence, in Buffalo, NY) Graycliff is an easy drive from the western part of

Route I-86, in Derby, NY. Although reservations are required, there are several tours daily during the autumn, and several different types of tours as well. Wright designed Graycliff for Isabelle R. Martin and her husband Darwin, intending to provide a spirit of “repose.” In this, he succeeded, for the tranquility of the setting, coupled with the breathtaking architecture create a sense of utter relaxation. Enjoy great architecture amidst the beauty of nature at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Graycliff. With ample free parking and a lovely gift shop, Graycliff is a must-see for those traveling to or through the area. For more information or reservations, see: CAll 716-947-9217 or email

Flavor of the Week – Kangaroo Cafe By Dusten RaDeR Entertainment Editor

Dunkirk has a great new place to satisfy hunger and quench thirst cravings. The Kangaroo Cafe is a place where guests can dine on delicious home made creations or to enjoy a real espresso drink in a comfortable atmosphere. The Kangaroo Cafe isn’t just a business to owners Genene and Tim Adamczak of Dunkirk. Their entire livelihood is invested in the shop. To them, it is a passion and a dream that was finally recognized when Tim was laid off after 31 years in garbage collection. Being laid off turned out to be a blessing in disguise that motivated them to create their own story of success. “Until Tim got laid off we never would have considered taking the risk,” said Genene. “Before he got laid off it was just an idea. But, when he lost the job I said well, lets look at that idea now.” The idea developed into a reality that is quickly turning out better than the two would ever have imagined. “I truly believe things happen for a reason and the lay off had to happen for this business to happen,” said Genene. “Facing adversities is a part of all of our lives. We simply couldn’t let it beat us without taking a chance and risk. Our faith in God has been our strength. Without our faith we are nothing.” Work by local artists lines the walls of the Kangaroo Cafe. It has become an outlet for creators to express themselves on a therapeutic level. It lends to the experience at the cafe. Where, guests can feel safe and secure inside the pouch of the Kangaroo. “We’ve been told by customers that if they have a stressful week as soon as they open the

door they feel comfortable and at home,” said Genene. “We’ve taken that homey feeling to an extra level. So much so that we’ve found people sleeping in the back room and have had to wake them up. We wanted to convey that it’s cool and upbeat but still relaxing even though there is something energizing about the room.” “Coming here is like going to your mother’s or grandmother’s house,” added Tim. “You have a place to sit, relax and eat.” The comfortable home away from home feeling is precisely what Genene and Tim want their guests to feel. One of the first things customers see as they enter is a quote on the wall that reads, “Friends Gather Here.” There is a piano in the front room that guests are allowed to sit down and Continued on page 7

Continued from page 6 play whenever they like. She eventually hopes to find a local artist to paint the piano. There is also a place on the wall for a mural that Genene also hopes to find a local artist to paint. The feeling even translates into the food and drinks. Everything on the menu is homemade and from recipes created by Genene. The good food starts in the morning with breakfast sandwiches, wraps, quiche and waffles. There are a number of waffles to choose from including blueberry, chocolate, Belgian, cheddar bacon, wheat germ, oat and flax seed. The quiche also have a few options to choose including ham and Swiss, bacon and others. For lunch guests are greeted with a variety of sandwiches and wraps that provide some classics as well as a few unique twists. Among the grilled specialty sandwiches to choose from there is a turkey berry that includes warm turkey, whole cranberry sauce, Swiss cheese and topped with coleslaw. During Thanksgiving Genene plans on making a homemade corn bread stuffing to add to the sandwich. There is also a Cubano, French dip, Caprese, Italian Melt and a Monte Cristo. It comes with ham, turkey and mozzarella served on grilled panini white with raspberry sauce and dusted with powdered sugar. The menu features home made soups like the five bean chili and black bean soup. There are also lettuce based salads as well as pasta salads. “We also plan on adding a few dinner entree options towards the end of September,” said Genene. “There will be one or two options to choose from that are things I’m used to making as a meal for my family. We decided to add it for guests who want more than a sandwich.”

In addition to plenty of good things to munch on there are drinks to wash it down. The coffee currently featured at Kangaroo Cafe is provided by Finger Lakes Roasters. But, eventually there are plans to feature a Buffalo based roaster called Golden Cup. There is also real espresso pressed to

make lattes, Macchiatos, cappuccinos and other specialty drinks. According to Genene Chai is becoming a very popular drink and during the warm days of summer the real fruit smoothies are also a big seller. According to Tim the mango smoothie is a local favorite. “We offer traditional drinks like a real authentic Macchiato, Lattes, Cappuccinos and other espresso drinks,” said Genene. “But, also like to play with the flavors by making unique drinks like pumpkin spice and peppermint patty lattes.” The goodness doesn’t stop with food and drink though. There are also a ton of home made baked goods for dessert, to accent a great cup of coffee or espresso drink. The most popular and highly complimented of the bunch is the peanut butter pie.

Continued from page 7 brownies, cookies, muffins and cupcakes are on the menu too. And, Genene sometimes makes specialty baked goods like German Chocolate cake. “I like to make a lot of things that I grew up with that offer a feeling of nostalgia,” said Genene. “We’ve done black and whites and we’re also bringing back the Whoopie Pie. I want people to remember things their Grandma used to make or things they would get when they went to the corner store.” There are more reasons to come to Kangaroo Cafe than food. Guests can also enjoy live performances by local musicians, work by local artists and eventually the shop will host informative classes. One example is the supreme coupon lecture that will teach participants to save money. There is a lounge area in the back that guests can use to study, watch television, relax or let their kids play with the toys. There is also a chalk board that patrons can write on to leave comments, write poems or express themselves. “We love the community and we understand that in order for us to survive we need their support,” said Genene. “So, we want to give back to them by offering art and music classes as well as lecture series. In the hallway we have a chalk board that reads “Espresso Yourself ” and I think this atmosphere makes people want to express themselves.” Kangaroo Cafe is located at 3969 Vineyard Drive in Dunkirk and is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. There is also a location at 20 Central Avenue on the boardwalk of the Dunkirk Pier that offers a selection of specialty drinks. For more information call 716-203-7215 or find them on facebook.

Bar of the Week – El Azteca By Dusten RaDeR Entertainment Editor

Even though Summertime is almost over it’s never a bad idea to cool down with a Margarita. El Azteca is a Mexican Cantina and restaurant with a large selection of tequila, beer and even free chips and salsa while guests enjoy their drinks. To satisfy those cravings for authentic Mexican experience there is no better place in Dunkirk than El Azteca. El Azteca has been family owned and operated since opening two years ago. Owner Arturo Negrete and his Assistants Jesus Escalante and Alex Martinez work hard to create an authentic south of the border experience. “People love it here because they can sit and relax with music and watch some T.V.,” said Escalante. “We try to make people feel at home when they are sitting at the bar. They can read the paper, hang out with their friends or come for an after work drink.” The atmosphere in El Azteca is accented by a stylish theme. Paintings imported from Mexico line the walls depicting Aztec warriors, gods and are also calendars. There are also murals painted in the restaurant. It is all to make guests feel like they are in a Cantina in Mexico. The selection of alcohol at El Azteca was determined by the Negrete and his crew. Their intention again was to create a feeling that guests are in Mexico. The flavors of drinks go well with certain Mexican dishes to create an authentic experience. A good example is having seafood with the original Margarita. “The original Margarita gives you a feel like you’re in Mexico,” said Escalante. Guests can enjoy the original Margarita on the rocks or as a

frozen blended drink. They always come topped with a fresh slice of lime and the rim coated with salt. There are other flavors of frozen Margaritas as well including strawberry, mango and peach. One ingredient that Margaritas cannot be made without is the Tequila. El Azteca carries a wide variety of tequila to choose from. There are about 20 different kinds of tequila to try. Patrons can either take a shot or try a margarita made with the any kind. “Every Mexican place needs to have tequila because it’s the only place in the world you can make it,” said Negrete. “So we carry a lot of it for people that Continued on page 10

want to try something new, make a change or for those who know what kind is the best kind of tequila. We cover all tastes from the lower all the way to the top.” If hard liquor isn’t what guests are looking for there is also a large selection of Mexican beers to sip on. Examples include Corona, Dos Equis, Negra Modelo, “We chose the beers because wanted to bring our flavor from Mexico,” said Escalante. “There are light beers, dark beers and of course Corona is the best seller. Negra Modelo brings a lot of good flavor to seafood, enchilada dishes and is a great combination with spicy foods.” While enjoying a drink at the bar guests can order anything off the entire menu. There are plenty of delicious appetizers to try as well as entrees. Great dishes to enjoy while having a drink include the Azteca dip which is ground beef, pico de gallo and cheese sauce. According to Escalante guests can

never go wrong with the cheese dip it is a favorite of many customers. The Queso Fundido is another good choice and comes with chips and melted cheese topped with a Mexican sausage called Chorizo. As far as entrees go Escalante recommends trying the Burrito Tejano. This 12 inch burrito is filled with steak, beans, rice, pico de gallo topped with melted cheese and served with lettuce and guacamole on the side. Whether ordering food or not guests are provided with free tortilla chips and salsa. “The salsa combines very well with the Mexican beer,” said Escalante. “We make our own chips fresh from home made tortillas and the salsa is made fresh as well.” For those looking to save a buck there are always specials going on at El Azteca. Saturday through Monday there is a special on domestic draft beers for $1.49 and $1.99 for Dos Equis draft. On Tuesday, Wednesday

and Thursday there is a special on domestic beers for $1.99 bottles and Mexican beers for $2.49 a bottle. All day on Friday includes a special on Bud Light Lime for $2. “We offer specials on drinks all day everyday,” said Escalante. “We don’t offer specials on food

because everything is special here.” For that south of the border feeling there is no better place than El Azteca. Stop in for authentic food, drinks, music and atmosphere, all of which lend to a perfect Cantina experience. El Azteca is located at 3953

Vineyard Drive in Dunkirk and is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 11:30 a.m to 9 p.m. on Sunday. For more information visit elaztecamex. com or call 716-363-0300.

Go Places – Mojo’s Preview By Dusten Rader Entertainment Editor

For the last seven years Mojo’s of Jamestown has been an integral part of the music scene in Chautauqua County. Owner Gib Taylor started the venue unaware of how popular it would become. Today, it plays host to about 100 shows a year for both local and nationally touring acts. The following is a message straight from Taylor about how Mojo’s has evolved into a staple of the community. Mojo’s of Jamestown Contributed By Gib Taylor Mojo’s opened seven years ago with a strange idea, let bands play what they write. I have often told people that I know little about music and have no musical skills, but I know that if someone creates music they should share it. Musicians are artists, creative and sometimes

a little crazy but they love what they do. I have been lucky enough to have some great employees help me with booking the bands, Matt Baxter for instance. He took on the roll of booking bands about five years ago and has done and amazing job. We have had bands from 14 different countries come play at Mojo’s, some from as far away as Tokyo. Mojo’s is a small venue but we have usually about 100 shows per year. We love to have the local music supported by the visiting bands. The confusion of diversity has really been an interesting dynamic of Mojo’s. We have had Bagpipes playing at 6 p.m. and a rock band at 9 p.m. That is the fun about this little spot in Jamestown, you just don’t know what you will hear. When we first opened I was told by many that nobody will go to a bar to see original music, but I disagreed and seven years later we are still

open and embraced by musicians and fans from around the country. The goal of Mojo’s has always been to give back and so we try to do year round charity work for Infinity Performing Arts, and again the local bands are so supportive they always help. In ending this I would like to say

thank you to the local media for their help and to people that keep the music here. I am not sure if the community realizes how many people have heard of Jamestown worldwide because they played in a small bar here. For a full Go Places feature on Mojo’s check back next week in the Entertainment Section. It

will include an interview with Gib Taylor, photos of the venue and a schedule of upcoming events. Until then, don’t miss Winslow with BandHanna on Friday, September 16 at 10 p.m. and Lazlo Hollyfeld with Universe Shark on Saturday, September 17 at 10 p.m.

Artist Profile: Well Worn Boot By Dusten Rader Entertainment Editor

Though Well Worn Boot’s music can be described as folk rock n’ roll the band is full of surprises. Part musical production and comedic performance their live show quite the adventure. They bring wild outfits, tons of hand made props and even open the show with poetry read by Plainsman. The band consists of Plainsman the Flute of Boot, his trusty steed Horse on guitar, the infamous Baby Buckingham on Bass and Swampass on percussion. Baby Buckingham and Swampass both got their names from their mothers and the horse could only neigh his name. But, their front man Plainsman’s title was earned. He never knew his parents so his name was bestowed upon him by the people who raised him. “For a while people were calling me Daddy Long Legs then I went ahead and rid of that,” said Plainsman. “Then people were calling me Cactus Jack and I went ahead and rid of that too. Finally people started to call me Plainsman. And I suppose that’s the one that stuck. Just a name really. Better than Pigpen or Quicksand or something like that.” The band was formed when Plainsman and his trusty steed Horse met Baby Buckingham in Tin Can County at the Cyclone Circus in the Hall of Mirrors. “It was tough because Baby Buckingham didn’t know much music and discipline is a big issue for us,” said Plainsman. “He is very young and he is only three years old. People immediately dismiss the man’s music when they hear he is only three years old because there are preconceptions about age. It makes me sick to my stomach.” “It makes me really angry,” added Buckingham. “Then I gotta

play my bass because if I don’t I’ll end up killing them all.” And, he isn’t kidding. At the end of many of the band’s shows Baby Buckingham finishes by tearing out the neck of Plainsman. He has concluded their performance on numerous occasions in this manner including the recent performance at the Dunkirk Lighthouse Cultural District Fundraiser. Horse and Swampass had to carry Plainsman off stage while Baby Buckingham stood drenched in blood before the audience. Somehow Plainsman survives the vicious attack or is revived by voodoo magic. Either way, he always ends up making it to the next show. “Music is an outlet that allows

a person to express themselves in a fantastical and extravagant way,” said Plainsman. “And for Baby Buckingham when it comes down to it it prevents him committing certain crimes that would be considered by modern day society to be “illegal.” So, Baby Buckingham plays his bass for therapeutic purposes. He used to get in trouble a lot so he learned to play while alone in his room. “A squirrel would come into my room so I killed him and took some of his bones and whiskers then stretched them out to make it into a bass,” said Buckingham. “But, it didn’t work so I had to buy my own.” Plainsman’s story of learning to play the flute is a bit more adventurous. He was raised in the wild desert by a band of natives who presented him with the flute as if it was a gift that he was meant to have. “I learned to play about twenty years ago from a tribe of people that were native to the land,” said Plainsman. “I was living with them out in the desert and they said, “Here’s a flute” and I responded, “This looks like some sissy stuff ” and they said “It is some sissy stuff ” and I

responded, “perfect.” When asked about where he learned to play guitar Plainsman’s trusty steed the Horse responded with only a “neigh.” His skill with the instrument has become the stuff of legend. Not many horses out there are able to strum a guitar with their hooves the way he does. Well Worn Boot’s live shows are not an average run of the mill experience. The band creates set pieces to accompany their music. Most recently they featured an owl that would spin it’s head to look at the audience with its large watchful eyes. “There is a certain amount of craftsmanship that goes into what we do,” said Plainsman. “Primarily it comes from dead animals and using their parts with other random bits of the earth like rocks and soil. Not dirt, soil, they teach you that in science class. We put it all together and for example we made an owl.” “We’re also going to begin making earthenware pots,” added Baby Buckingham. Creation is an important aspect of the bands performance. But, so is destruction. According to Plainsman if they aren’t kickin’ ass they don’t care. “Destruction is important to us because when I look around this country and see all that’s been put out before us I think that it is for us and I’m going to do whatever I want with it,” he said. Another unique part of the experience comes right at the beginning of the show. Guests are wowed by a reading of a quote by Walt Whitman. “I don’t like to bore the audience with poetry,” said Plainsman. “But when it comes down to it we are all fans of the arts. So, we read a little Walt Whitman at the start of the show to let everyone Continued on page 13

continued from page 12 know that we’re hip to it. We know the deal. I like the Canonical Texts, Charles Dickens and the whole deal man. But, ya see, I also listen to Obie Trice. There is a spectrum of entertainment and of the arts, you can’t just limit yourself. It’s all just mumbo jumbo.” Live shows are always a wild time for the band. But, one of their greatest adventures happened to them while wandering the desert. Completely out of anything to quench their thirst Plainsman convinced the group to eat some cactus. “Three days later I found myself with a rattlesnake in my hand,” said Plainsman. “I started swinging it around. It turns out that it was long enough and even though it has no legs it used its muscles in its body to turn around and nip my nose to pierce it. I immediately pulled out a stud I had been holding in my pocket since 1974 that I got from a Little Feet show when I was on tour. And, I stuck the stud in my nose, threw the


snake on the ground and put the heel of my boot in that mother!” Even though they are a wandering bunch of minstrels they are proud to call Chautauqua County their home. They are so proud in fact that they wrote a song about it. “We’re home bread all American sons of a guns,” said Plainsman. “We love the scenery, the people and the experience. There is an overall thing you get living in an environment like this. The culture evaporates, sinks into you and you spit it out. There is this communal thing that goes on, it’s cyclic really. You know, YEAH!” The band’s next show is at The Tap Room in Westfield on September 24 with Mr. Boneless. Then again with Mr. Boneless at Mojo’s in Jamestown on October 1. Then on October 22 they will play in Hornell, for the “Mustache Ball.” For more information visit their website at or find them on facebook. Baby Buckingham bites Plainsman. (Photo by Dusten Rader)
