Summer at Allegany State Park

Summer is in full swing at Allegany State Park (ASP), New York’s largest state park. Grab a bite to eat at the Park Restaurant, located at the Red House Admin building, where the patio is open for the season, and plan your time at the park! There’s no better way to cool off during a heat wave than by a dip in the lake, and ASP offers two sandy beaches. Red House Lake, which just reopened after being closed for nearly a year due to construction of the Red House Dam, is ready once again to welcome visitors to its scenic waters. Beachgoers will not only enjoy a guarded beach

HV’s Snowsports Director Recognized by Ski Area Management Magazine By Alicia Dziak

After only one season, Holiday Valley Snowsports Director Allie Doro has made great strides, and now she’s being recognized on a national level. Every year, Ski Area Management Magazine (SAM) names 10 resort employees under the age of 30 who are enthusiastic about and committed to leading the industry into the future, and Doro is one of them. Doro, age 28, was nominated for her passion for skiing and her ultimate goal of making skiing fun for guests and staff. According to Katie Brinton of SAM, “The industry is facing several challenges: an aging guest and leadership demographic, static skier visits, climate change, and more. But these rising stars don’t just see the problems, they see solutions, too. And they are eager to help.” “It’s always nice to feel appreciated and this award means just that. What a feeling!” Doro said. “I am extremely grateful for all the support I have from Holiday Valley and in the entire industry right now. At 28, it is what fuels me to make this skier lifestyle into a lifelong career. I feel pretty humbled by the other nine rockstars across North America See Doro page 3

For many Ellicottville students, the pinnacle of summer vacation is not the late mornings or lack of homework, but the Town of Ellicottville’s Park Program. This local outdoor event, free for all attendees, begins the first week of July and boasts a packed schedule until mid-August. Operational five days a week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Park Program is beneficial for working parents and energetic children alike. The Program’s devoted counselors, handpicked by program director Tracy Stokes, do their utmost to ensure a safe and fun environment for all who choose to attend. This summer, along with bi-weekly visits to the Holiday Valley Pool, the Park Program will facilitate excursions to Griffis Sculpture Park, Allegany State Park, and the Buffalo Zoo. Alongside these adventures, scavenger hunts, games of World Cup, capture-theflag extravaganzas, Ellicottville Memorial Library crafting days, and lunches catered by Katy’s Fly-in are offered. Mitchell Sexton, third-year counselor and Ellicottville Class of 2018, notes that the Holiday Valley Pool has been a hit for kids no matter the year. “Pool See Park Program page 5

Continued from front page that won the award as well and am excited to work with them to keep wintersports alive!” After spending five years teaching at Steamboat and Aspen in Colorado, Doro was hired for the 2017-18 season to codirect the Holiday Valley Snowsports School. She will be the sole director in the 2018-19 season, where she will be responsible for 250 instructors and coaches including Ski and Snowboard School instructors, Training Center coaches and the Lounsbury Program adaptive instructors. Doro believes the Snowsports School’s role is not to just teach skiing and snowboarding but to create excitement about the sport in general and make each day on the mountain a new experience. In addition to her role as Snowsports Director, last year she was successful in earning a spot on the PSIA-E Development Team. She feels that her goal of becoming a PSIA Examiner serves as an

example to her staff to push themselves to continue learning and improving their skills and their knowledge of the sport. One of Allie’s initiatives in the 2017-18 season was to emphasize personalizing the guest experience and to make the lesson specific to each guest’s needs. It not only resulted in greater customer satisfaction, but also kept instructors invested in each lesson they taught. Going forward, Doro said, “Some 2018-19 goals are to continue to strive for Holiday Valley to be a fun place to work and play. I also want to increase conversion rates by working on affordable options not

only with the first lesson but with the total investment to ski or ride again and again.” In a recent press release, Holiday Valley’s President and General Manager Dennis Eshbaugh, who began his career as the director of the Holiday Valley Ski School, said, “I’m pleased and proud of what Allie has accomplished in just one season. She brings fresh ideas and a ton of enthusiasm to our company. Along with other young staff on our Administrative Team, she can look at challenges in a different way and come up with unique solutions that work. I congratulate Allie and all of the 10 Under 30 group.”

WNYMBA Encourages Community Among Mountain Bikers By Alicia Dziak

Summer is the perfect time of year to get outdoors and challenge your body. Whether that means training for a marathon or navigating tough terrain, WNY is full of opportunities to push your body to the limits and to take in the natural beauty of your surroundings. One such activity that continues to grow in popularity is the highadrenaline sport of mountain biking. The Western New York Mountain Biking Association, better known as WNYMBA, started in 1992 to give athletes more places to ride, and boasts a motto of “keeping mountain bikers off the street.” The group got together to stop trail closures, work toward improving access to existing trails and getting permission to construct new trails. “The WNYMBA) prides itself in working with riders of all genders, ages and abilities,” said WNYMBA president Jacob Bodway. For those just starting out in the sport, Bodway said, “My best advice is to be patient and to

start on more beginnerfriendly trails to work up cardiovascular endurance. Just going on one of the many rails-totrails in the region is a good way to get out on some dirt trails without any roots or rocks. The Eastside and Westside Overland Trails in Chautauqua County are also great for beginners who are looking for a bit more challenge (it’s where I started mountain biking). Finally, joining us on a group ride at Sprague Brook is another good way to follow more advanced riders and to gain advice on how to be a better rider.” The group rides he refers ro happen every Wednesday at 6 p.m., when the club holds a ‘no rider left behind’ ride at Sprague Brook or at Hunter’s Creek County Parks. “These rides are geared toward beginner and expert riders alike,” Bodway said. “We typically have a handful of more experienced riders who show

a group of beginners the trails and offer advice on how to best ride them.” Aside from the weekly group ride, the organization has some other special events planned this summer. On Saturday, July 21, the Singletrack Stampede mountain bike race will happen at Sprague Brook. “This race has Beginner, Sport, and Expert classes, so anyone can race, regardless of skill level,” noted Bodway. On Aug. 4-5, WNYMBA will host a weekend clinic/party/ race at Long Point State Park in Bemus Point,

N.Y. “Aug. 4 will be a clinic to provide new and intermediate mountain bikers with the necessary skills to ride WNY singletrack trails. After the clinic, the club will hold a cookout at one of the park’s many pavilions,” explained Bodway. “Aug. 5 is the King/Queen of the Point race, which is a very beginner-friendly race.” Aug. 10-12 is the WNYMBA camping weekend at Holiday Valley. “This is a weekend for riders of all skill levels. We set up camp near Spruce Lake and have a weekend full of group rides, cookouts,

and campfires,” said Bodway. He added that this a family and kidfriendly event, but that for insurance reasons, all who attend must be a club member. Aug. 19 is the 5th annual Harris Hill Hustle race at Harris Hill State Forest in Gerry, N.Y. “This race is rather challenging, but it is open to beginner riders,” Bodway stated. In addition, WNYMBA volunteers design, develop, and maintain trails across the State, working with every major recreation land manager. “We have trail work days all season, with the lion’s share occurring in the spring and fall (summer is for riding),” said Bodway. “Typically, we’ll post these dates on the WNYMBA calendar, the WNYMBA Meetup page, and our Facebook page. Our volunteer trail building days are excellent opportunities for all community members to learn how to build,

maintain, and respect the trails and the outdoor environment.” According to Bodway, WNYMBA works tirelessly with local land managers and stakeholders at the county, state, and national levels, to ensure that mountain bikers have a seat at the table. “We want to ensure that we have continued access to the trails that we have already built and that we have opportunities to build new trails when the opportunity arises,” he said. A good example is at Allegany State Park, where the group is in the first stages of constructing a new 8 mile trail system, with another 12 miles planned down the road. “At its core, WNYMBA is all about having fun! Riding bikes is a super healthy way to relieve stress, get in shape, and meet new people,” Bodway noted. “WNYMBA does its best to encourage the growth of a cycling community in WNY (not just mountain biking).” For more info and to become a member, visit

The snack bar is open, as well as the boathouse, where you can rent kayaks, SUPs, canoes and even bikes and pedal cars to cruise the bike path on. Over at Quaker Lake, the beach is open daily as well, offering plenty of parking, picnic tables and a wide beach for sunning and building sandcastles. A new dock area has been added this year, adjacent to the beach, where you can also rent a variety of watercrafts to enjoy the lake. ASP packs in a full lineup of live music all summer long with special events and their Artists in Resident Program, which unofficially began in the early 1980s. In the early years, concerts were mainly on the Red House side of the park, but as it continued to grow in popularity, eventually the Quaker side of the park was included. Today, concerts are held all week long at various locations throughout the park, including the Quaker Amphitheater, Red House Beach and Red House Administration Building

Water Expansion Easement Agreement Recognition

In 2010 the Town and Village of Ellicottville collectively, started planning to expand the water system and the East Tank Project. With the development of this plan, right of way acquisitions were needed for this construction. In doing so, the Town acquired parcels from all of you in 2013. It has been brought to the attention of the Ellicottville Town Board that you had not been formally recognized for your agreeing to grant the Town easements for our water system expansion at no expense to the Town. The Town Board would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for generosity in granting these easements to improve our water system. Sincerely, Ellicottville Town Board

Fredonia Bounces ECLV from Section 1 Softball (10-12) Tourney

Fredonia defeated the Ellicottville/Cattaraugus-Little Valley softball team for the second time by a two-run score to end the 10-12-year-old all-stars’ run on Monday, July 2. ECLV led by 8-3 after four innings and 8-7 after five, but a fell 12-10 in an elimination game at the Section 1 West tournament. Lauren Frascella went 3-for3, Allison Rowland was 3-for-4 and Caitlin O’Neill was 2-for-4. Frascella also struck out nine.

ECS NEWS ECLV Puts Away Cuba in 4 Innings for District 2 Title

Ellicottville-Cattaraugus-Little Valley’s Lauren Frascella delivers a pitch against Cuba on Thursday afternoon. By Sam Wilson

Just like it had in its first two games of the District 2 Little League all-star playoffs, the Ellicottville/ Cattaraugus-Little Valley softball team (ages 10-12) needed just four innings to clinch a return to the Section 1 West tournament. ECLV scored multiple runs in each inning, including four in the second, to build a 10-0 lead through four against Cuba in the finals of the doubleelimination district playoffs Thursday, activating the 10-run rule to end the game. The victors needed just three hits to score their 10 runs, taking advantage of walks and errors with aggressive baserunning to support pitcher Lauren Frascella. “If we can get on base, I want them stealing, I want them capitalizing on it,” ECLV manager Dawn Rowland said. “Softball, being aggressive on the

bases is really, really important because you take every run you can get. Some games are close, some games are blowouts, but I want them to learn the game and by learning to steal, learning to be aggressive, learning to force bad throws, they get better. I don’t care if they get thrown out: I tell them to steal, that’s what I want.” Frascella struck out nine of the 12 outs she recorded, allowing one hit — a leadoff double by Cuba’s Naveah Ross — with two walks and two hit batters. Rowland credited a strong pitcher-catcher battery of Frascella and Allison Rowland and defense behind them for the team’s dominant run through the district playoffs. “Pitching and catching has been pretty strong,” she said. “We really have to get our bats going, but I think today they did well,

they’re coming along and our fielding has been pretty good too. Definitely, our defense. “She’s comfortable on the mound,” Rowland added of Frascella. “I like it. She has a lot of confidence. Allison and her have clicked very well. Allison is not her normal catcher; Allison actually (for) the first time ever caught in the first game. She’s only three games in as a catcher and she’s coming along very nicely. I’m very impressed, and they’ve clicked, they get along well and having that mojo between catcher and pitcher is pretty important.” Frascella also went 2-for-3 and Dakota Familo hit an RBI single for ECLV. Familo, Jaida Mendell and Allison Rowland scored two runs each. Cuba pitcher Mariayah Irvine struck out five. Unbeaten ECLV handed Cuba both of its losses in the tournament. ECLV advanced to the Section 1 West tourney starting Saturday in Fredonia against other district champions from Western New York. ECLV lost its first game, 6-4, to Fredonia on Saturday in the double-elimination tourney. On Sunday, ECLV knocked out Orchard Park with a 13-3 win in four innings. But Fredonia topped ECLV, sending it home with a 1210 loss.

days are when most kids show up and when they seem to have the most fun,” he says. On any given day, the Park Program can accommodate anywhere from 20 to 50 kids. The Park Program isn’t all fun and games, however. “The most challenging part of working at the park,” says Tarah Scharf, third-year counselor and Ellicottville Class of 2017, “is the weather, and not being able to really predict what’s going to happen. If it does rain, we only have the pavilion so it can be tough.” The pavilion is merely a roof over the picnic tables that the park uses for crafts, card games of Spoons, and lunch. With no walls, the

Park Program attendees have no protection from the elements. Mason Perks, rising 6th grader and threeyear Park Program attendee, is unfazed. The Park Program is one of his favorite aspects of summer. “I love seeing old friends, new friends, and old friends again,” says Perks. William Benatovich, sitting next to Perks, agrees. “Park Program is where I made my first friends when I moved to Ellicottville.” The Park Program caters to all interests and ages. On a sunny day at the park, you might see a 1st-grader playing tennis with his friends, a 3rd-grader spinning solo on the tire-swing, or a 7th-grader painstakingly

placing Melty Beads on a flower-shaped mold. No matter the child, the Park Program creates a safe and social environment into which parents entrust their kids. “The most rewarding part of working at the Park Program,” says Noah Stuve, secondyear counselor and Ellicottville Class of 2018, “is having an impact on children’s lives.” As students age out of the program, like Stuve, they often apply to work there themselves. After seeing the program in action, it is clear that Ellicottville’s Park Program is not only a key component to an amazing summer but a rite of passage.

While you have a pretty good idea of where we’re at now in terms of what’s going on in town, it wouldn’t hurt to take a moment to reflect on how we started out. Or another way of putting it, what I saw when I took on the role of Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce over 20 years ago. Back then, Ellicottville was a ski town that got busy on weekends in the winter months, thanks to Holiday Valley and HoliMont, and pretty much shut down or went into ‘summer hibernation’ after the ski season. Businesses struggled to stay open and pay the bills until fall festival and then until ski season. Our solution, then and now, was to transform Ellicottville into a true fourseason community by putting “Feet on the Street,” which is precisely what we’ve done. Ellicottville now attracts as many overnight visitors during the ‘green season’ as the winter ski season… in fact some years more. And the number one reason for that? Festivals and events. In 20 years, we’ve gone from just a few festivals to an impressive line up of 12 events, from the Summer Music Festival, to the Girls Getaway Weekend, to the ever-popular Fall Festival. Festivals have also been the catalyst to attract wedding and conference groups and new homeowners. Increasing our non-ski season visitor base was what has allowed our resorts and developers

to add more activities in the green seasons. To make all this possible, every year we work diligently behind the scenes to raise money in the form of membership dues (about 9 percent of our operating income), grants, sponsorships and event income, to be able to accomplish our goals as the “Destination Management Organization” for Ellicottville. Without those funds, we simply wouldn’t be the community we are today. And if it weren’t for Fall Festival – by far our biggest money maker— many of the smaller free events would not take place. (Here’s a small aside as well, because I realize there are mixed feelings about this event. Fall Festival finances most of our other events and part of our annual advertising campaign.) Fall Festival also goes a long way to helping other local not for profits raise over $75,000 each year for their local activities. It really is the machine that drives everything else. This is also true now, and in the past, for our business community members. Anyway, to answer the first question – what’s the Chamber up to? More times than not, what we’re up to is getting ready for the next festival operationally and from a marketing perspective. Why? Because festivals and events are the number one reason folks travel after business and friends and family and this is essentially why we have been able to transform Ellicottville into the vibrant, action-packed community that it is today. For many homeowners, they’re what brought you here in the first place. And then not unlike myself, you fell in love with the town. So how do you as a homeowner actually benefit from the festivals and events? Look for some of the answers to that in the next part of this three-part series: Getting Feet on the Street.

The July Village Planning Board (VPB) Meeting opened with a motion to approve the June 2018 minutes; there was a second and ayes carried. First in New Business, the plans for a Single Family Residence were presented. This home has a 1,900 sq. ft. footprint, with an attached garage and accessory apartment above the garage. The home requires a Site Plan Review and Architectural Design Review which require no Public Hearing. The accessory apartment requires a Special Use Permit and a Public Hearing is necessary. This is to be located at 18 Fillmore on Lot #9 of the already preapproved subdivision. This is a permitted use in the Medium Density District. All set back

The application was deemed complete and there was a motion to set the Public Hearing for 5:30 p.m. on Aug. 14; there was a second and ayes carried. Next was a site plan amendment regarding the parking behind 4 Monroe St. The originally approved site plan consisted of four parking spots, three in the back and one in the driveway itself, which was a condition of approval. The applicant

has put in a larger than approved parking lot which was brought to the attention of the Code Enforcement Officer and VPB. The parking lot now consists of six parking spots.

“The Banker’s Wife” by Christina Alger

On an early morning in November, a couple boards a private plane bound for Geneva, flying into a storm. Soon after, it simply drops off the radar, and its wreckage is later uncovered in the Alps. Among the disappeared is Matthew Werner, a banking insider at Swiss United, a powerful offshore bank. His young widow, Annabel, is left grappling with the secrets he left behind, including an encrypted laptop and a shady client list. As she begins a desperate search for answers, she determines that Matthew’s death was no accident, and that she is now in the crosshairs of his powerful enemies. This book is currently available in book format only at the Ellicottville Memorial Library. It is also available to download for free as an eBook or eAudiobook version to your own device. Don’t forget, you can access over 15,300 eBooks and eAudiobooks using your library card!

Financial Report; a second and ayes carried. Next, was a motion to pay the bills with the exception of V#1192 for $481.70 and the addition of one payment of roughly $28,400.00. The first was caught by Trustee Greg Cappelli for an overhead door repair. Cappelli suggested looking into what the warranty covers as the door is only 2 years old. The added payment is the first of five payments for the new sidewalk plow, half of the amount will be reimbursed by the town. There was a second and ayes carried to pay the bills. Business from the Floor: There were a handful of community members to discuss three topics, the Monroe Streetscape Project, potholes and chalk graffiti. First, regarding Monroe Street, were questions of

scope of the project was not fully understood by the contractor. It was put out to bid again and one bid was received. This bid was approximately $15,00020,000 over budget. The public had been given the impression that the entire street would become concrete. To this, the board reassured that there has been much time and due diligence put into the project and there will still be green space. Grass has always been tough to keep growing on that part of Monroe Street due to the amount of shade. The board has found a new product that goes underneath the grass that essentially protects the grassroots. The sidewalk will be widened from 5’ to 7’ to give better foot traffic flow and make the sidewalk easier to maintain in the winter time. There were concerns that the

contacted. Cappelli advised that this is where we have a communication flaw and the board is working on long term solutions to increase the flow of communication between the municipality and the residents such as the formation of social media pages. Trustee Spencer Murray noted that even the board is not happy with the current state of Monroe Street and unfortunately sometimes there are things that happen outside of their control with larger projects, but they are doing their best to get the job done. Mayor John Burrell added too that this project is to be used as a model for other parts of the village if we were to receive the Downtown Revitalization Initiative Grant. The Mayor assured that plans are always available in the Village Clerk’s Office for the public to come look at and the entire bid for the project is available as well. Next, Sheila Gallagher spoke regarding the noise level of traffic going over the potholes on Jefferson. She suggested that a sign be put up saying “Rough Road, Reduce Speed.” The Mayor advised that letters had been sent to Frank Cerullo of The Department of Transportation. Correspondence was received back and there

the public that they need to write to their local and county officials who have to depend on their votes to get the street fixed. He also advised that he would have a list of who to contact for each situation in the Village Clerk’s office as of June 10th. There were questions of why a stock response cannot be sent in and the Mayor advised the best is for the letter to be personal and from the individual; that is the best way to get heard. Next was the topic of chalk graffiti. There are several businesses in town that put out sidewalk chalk for kids to draw on the sidewalks. This has turned into people using the chalk to write on the walls of some of the buildings. The discussion on how to mitigate this included ideas such as signage to not allowing the sidewalk chalk. The board advised that we should start to spread the word that the sidewalk chalk is for the sidewalk only. Also, the business owners and workers should pull the chalk in at the end of business hours and if they see someone writing on the wall to ask them not to do that. Last, there was a question of motorcycle parking. It is very noisy in the village with all of the bikes on nice days. It was noted that many resort communities have parking

Downtown Revitalization Initiative Grant, a response should be received by September or October. There was a meeting with Rick Winter and Danny Gare regarding the old ice rink at the park. A synthetic ice material is being investigated and more information will be received soon. Also there has been a request for permanent “no parking” signs and speed limit signs on Monroe Street between Martha and Rockwell. The Mayor believes we will need a new local law to support the permanent installation of the signs. There was a motion to accept the Planning Report; a second and ayes carried. Engineer’s Report: Regarding the Structural Tree Pruning Resolution there was a motion to pass; a second and ayes carried. This will allow the Village to give the work to whom they see fit as opposed to continuously putting it out for bid. This will allow for more streamlined and effective tree pruning. There was a motion to reject the bid for the Monroe Street Streetscape Project and put it out to re-bid; there was a second and ayes carried. Next, there was a motion to accept the bids for $19,355.78 and $43,760.89 to repair VanBuren Drive and Greer Hill; there was a second and ayes carried. Pierson advised that in New York State there is a common thought of keeping “good roads, good” and allow for proper planning on fixing bad roads. If all energy and budget monies are flooded into fixing bad roads only you will find yourself with more costly repairs in the long run. Regarding the Fillmore Drainage Project, they are

Field County Grant. Refuse: There was discussion regarding the Casella trash removal contract. Pierson advised that approximately 30 man-hours per week are being allocated to cardboard and brush pick up. Lowes and Pierson will work together to ensure the Casella agreement is properly adhered to and this should reduce the man hours allocated by the village. Old Business: Discussion on the Short Term Rental Law was discussed. This will amend the the Zoning Law for less than 30 Day Rentals. The applications will be handled by the Code Enforcement Officer. Once this law is complete it will help implement the plan the board has been working on. There was a motion to allow Pierson to sign the New York State Municipal Energy Program paperwork to look into shared utilities. Next, there was a motion to request John Nelson to remove the Ski Tree by the August meeting of the Village Board; there was a second and ayes carried. There was a motion to reinstate a committee that oversees the four corner district and will not be comprised of more than six people; there was a second and ayes carried. New Business: There was a motion that the Village Board is in favor of the Intermunicipal Agreement for the Water Distribution System, if the Town Board passes the Village Board will sign; there was a second and ayes carried. If there is a draft in front of the board the next month a Public Hearing could be set for September. The next meeting of the Village Board is Monday Aug. 13 at 6 p.m. at the Village Hall.

Homeowners interested in installing pools in their backyards need not worry about the potential impact of such decisions on surrounding landscapes. According to the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals, there are 10.4 million residential and 309,000 public swimming pools in the United States. Although the average monthly temperatures in Canada are lower than those throughout much of the United States, many Canadian homeowners still have pools in their backyards. Quebec is home to the most pools per capita for Canada â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with some estimates suggesting the province has more than 300,000 backyard pools, according to Pool and

Spa Marketing magazine. Many homeowners wonder if the chlorine and other chemicals in pool water have any affect on the lawn, particularly if pool water robs lawns of vital nutrients they need to thrive. But the resource All About Lawns says most people neednâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry about errant drops or even higher levels of overflow. It all comes down to the selectivity of grass. Blades of grass are particular about which nutrients from the water they absorb and in what quantities. Lawns are largely unaffected by chlorine. Furthermore, soil can withstand chlorine when kept at applicable sanitary levels (which generally range between two to three

parts per million), at high acid levels. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much more than is usually contained in pool water. Pool water is also maintained in the neutral range at a pH of 6.5 to 7.8, which is safe for plants. Should the pool water test at a higher acidity or alkalinity, it can adversely affect landscapes, particularly delicate plants. Pool owners should be diligent about smart application and storage of pool chemicals. Powdered or liquid chlorine and other water chemistry products that spill onto grass or plants may cause damage. In safe amounts, chlorine should not adversely affect lawns and other plants that surround pools.

National Comedy Center Launches Lenny Bruce Exhibit

To celebrate the opening of its Lenny Bruce exhibit, the National Comedy Center grand opening week will include a discussion on “Comedy and the First Amendment,” and commence a fundraising partnership with the Lenny Bruce Memorial Foundation. The National Comedy Center, opening Aug. 1in Jamestown, N.Y., is the first non-profit cultural institution and national-scale visitor attraction dedicated to the art of comedy. The Lenny Bruce Memorial Foundation, founded in 2008 by Bruce’s daughter, Kitty Bruce, combats alcohol/drug addiction with scholarships and education. The Center’s exhibit will feature storytelling of Bruce’s legacy as a stand-up comedian, social critic, and satirist, highlighted by rare artifacts courtesy of Kitty Bruce and the Lenny Bruce Memorial Foundation. Items include Bruce’s iconic trench coat, which he began wearing as a matter of course owing to his being taken to jail directly from the stage; his typewriter; a hand-annotated manuscript for his book “How to Talk Dirty and Influence People”; a personal letter to his father (from jail); court transcripts; Governor George Pataki’s pardon letter and more. Bruce was convicted in 1964 on obscenity charges and was posthumously pardoned by Governor Pataki in 2003, the first in the history of New York State.

“Comedy and the First Amendment: How far is too far and who decides?” will spotlight how comedians use humor to speak truth to power, but not without the consequence of censorship, lost work, and even criminal prosecution. Panelists include Kitty Bruce, attorney Paul Cambria and comedian Lewis Black. This event will take place in Jamestown at the Robert H. Jackson Center on Thursday, August 2nd at 4:00pm. Kitty Bruce will lend personal stories of her father’s battles with the law as he plied his comedy craft, often in defiance of obscenity laws. An expert on First Amendment rights, attorney Paul Cambria has represented many prominent individuals including sexually graphic magazine publisher Larry Flynt and musicians DMX and Marilyn Manson. Lewis Black, known for his trademark comedy rants about current events and politics, has been a vocal fan of Lenny Bruce and the importance of his legacy. A fitting setting for the event, the panel is produced in partnership with the Robert H. Jackson Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing public awareness and appreciation of the principles of justice and the rule of law. Robert H. Jackson, a native of Jamestown, and a U.S. Supreme Court Justice, was the Chief U.S. Prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trials (19451946).

Working closely with treatment programs, the Lenny Bruce Memorial Foundation oversees many aspects of addiction service, works with approved facilities designed to save lives, and provides scholarships for those who do not have the insurance or financial means for such treatment. Donations to the National Comedy Center Lenny Bruce Memorial Partnership will support both the Lenny Bruce Memorial Foundation in its rehabilitative endeavors and the National Comedy Center in its continued efforts to tell the story of Lenny Bruce’s legacy and impact as a pioneer of comedy and freedom of speech. Other events during the National Comedy Center’s grand opening week include appearances by Amy Schumer, Lily Tomlin, original cast and writers of Saturday Night Live Dan Aykroyd, Laraine Newman, Garrett Morris and Alan Zweibel, Lucie Arnaz, and more than 30 comedy artists. The National Comedy Center embodies Lucille Ball’s vision for her hometown of Jamestown to become a destination for the celebration of comedy in a way that educates, fosters and inspires. Featuring more than 50 immersive and interactive exhibits designed by leading museum design firms in the world, the 37,000 square foot National Comedy Center visitor experience tells the story of comedy from its origins through the present. Tickets may be purchased by visiting by calling (716) 484-2222, visiting the festival box office located at 2 W. 3rd Street, Jamestown, NY 14701 or by going to www.

Dover, where Don Pedro, Prince of Cordelia has Arragon, pays a visit to landed with a Leonato, the governor of French army Messina. Accompanying to rescue her Don Pedro are two of father. There, his officers, Benedick Lear and and Claudio, as well as Cordelia are his illegitimate brother, reconciled but Don John. While in in the ensuing Messina, Claudio falls

for Leonato’s daughter, Hero. The young lovers are soon betrothed. Meanwhile, Benedick verbally spars with Beatrice, the governor’s clever niece. Each declaring, a little too emphatically, that they cannot stand the other. To pass the week before the wedding, Don Pedro, Leonato and Claudio conspire to sport with Benedick and Beatrice in an effort to make them admit their love for one another. Both Benedick and Beatrice will be tricked into believing that the other has professed a great love for them. The wedding of Claudio and Hero approaches, but Don John, with the aid of his companions, Borachio and Conrade, plot against it, bringing Hero’s virtue into question. Claudio falls for the ruse and denounces Hero at the altar. Friar Francis convinces the family to announce that Hero has died of grief from the proceeding. Hero is

hidden away while the family tries to uncover the truth. Beatrice alone maintains Hero’s innocence, and after professing her love to Benedick, implores him to confront Claudio and defend Hero’s honor. Borachio drunkenly boasts of his part in the plot to defame Hero, and is arrested by the night watchmen. He and Conrade are turned over to Dogberry and Verges, the bumbling heads of the local constabulary. After a hearing before the Sexton, the villains are found out, and Hero is exonerated. But, Don John has managed to escape from Messina. Leonato tells Claudio, that he will allow Claudio to marry one of his nieces in Hero’s place—a niece that turns out to be none other than Hero herself. Claudio and Hero are reunited, Benedick and Beatrice wed alongside them, and they receive the news that the bastard Don John has been apprehended. Free performances take

place Tuesdays through Sundays at 7:30 p.m. You will definitely want to get there early, not just for a great spot on the hill (chairs are welcome, but near the top only; blankets allowed near the stage) but also to ensure a good parking spot nearby.
