Anniversary Celebration: 40 Years and Still ‘Driven to Keep You Driving’ The Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce and local officials were on hand to help mark a very special milestone for a local business. At the northernmost part of our county lies a local business that has clearly built a solid foundation. Jim White‘s Truck and Auto Center in Irving is celebrating 40 years of continued service to the community. Owner Jim White began selling cars in 1971 with his brother at ‗White Brothers‘ in Sheridan, New York. After some success, Jim took what knowledge and expertise he had gained to Irving, opening what was then called ―Jim White‘s Used Cars.‖ ―His slogan when he first started was ‗An Honest Deal from and Honest Dealer,‖ said Jim White‘s son, Richard White, who is now the firms‘ manager. Apparently the slogan has become a business model, since the company now known as Jim White‘s Truck and Auto Center is now a large used car dealership with a service guarantee. July 2011

―We offer a new first time buyer program, which requires you to only have been at your current job for six months,‖ said Richard White. ―We have over a dozen lenders providing a full spectrum of financing alternatives with flexible payment and down payment options.‖ Jim White‘s Truck and Auto Center has also made the advancement to become a fully usable online resource with their web site, www.jimwhites.com. As a Carfax Advantage Dealer, their site features great options to fully check out the cars without even having to leave your living room. They have also introduced staff and new specials through a Facebook page. Jim White‘s Truck and Auto Center is open Monday through Thursday from 9 am to 8 pm, Fridays from 9 am to 6 pm and Saturdays from 9 am to 4 pm. For information phone 716-934-3580. The Voice

Saturday, May 28. Family, Friends and patrons gathered at Mancuso Service Center to celebrate the official ribbon cutting for their new Automatic Car Wash and Detail Center. There was free food for all including hot dogs and pizza along with KIX Country 95.5 and the sun made a special appearance in between the clouds. Four Generations were represented making this a truly family owned and operated business while Shelley (Mother),Tony (Father), and (Son) Tony Jr. and Regina his wife run the day to day operations. On hand to perform the Ceremony were members of the Fredonia and County Chamber of Commerce supplying the giant scissors operated by Fredonia Mayor Stephen Keefe. Located at 242 E Main Street Fredonia for 57 years the Mancuso‘s have been a key member of the business community and to show their appreciation lowered the price of gas for the day well below the national average. Other services offered by the Mancuso Family and their wonderful staff are towing, full service auto repair, kerosene, propane, and inspections.

Cha ut a uqua PT Presents Fa ll Prevention Seminar The next in a series of Helping You Help Yourself Free Seminars presented by Chautauqua Physical & Occupational Therapy is titled "Finding your Balance to Prevent a Fall.‖ Falls are a leading cause of decline in older adults and their ability to live independently. Preventing a fall is clearly the key. Many feel they have no control over whether or not they fall, however, this is simply not correct. Research shows that a physical therapy evaluation can have a huge impact on preventing a fall. Increasing one's balance through basic exercises that can be done at home are effective ways to have a positive impact along with some simple adjustments to one's home environment. The event is free and open to the public but space is limited. Light refreshments will be served. A Tai Chi demonstration by Sam McLean will be included. Call 488-2322 to reserve your seat. Chautauqua Physical & Occupational Therapy is celebrating 15 years in our community and is located in the Riverwalk Center, 15 South Main Street, Suite 220, Jamestown.

community leaders volunteered to participate in a focus group highlighting leadership traits. Their discussion was designed to glean information from those who are already leaders themselves and to capture ―best practices‖ in an effort to create the strongest program possible for participants. JBC President, David Conklin, was pleased with the response from local business, education, and government groups. He said, ―We are fortunate to have so many people within our community who have an interest and willingness to help with this leadership initiative. In the end, it will be the participating students who will benefit from the considerable bank of knowledge and ideas that the focus group generated.‖ Leadership Launch, which is endorsed by Senator Catharine Young, is designed to provide high school seniors in Chautauqua County with an opportunity to enhance their leadership skills. High school teachers and counselors will be receiving further information and program nomination forms in the near future.
