Rumsey receives Great American surprise

By Tom Passmore Steuben Courier

CINCINNATI — Bath Superintendent Joe Rumsey recently was given the chance to be an honorary captain at Great American Ballpark, the home of the Cincinnati Reds, in honor of his son who passed away tragically in 2016. Rumsey’s close friend and former colleague at Prattsburgh, Jim Burke, wrote a letter to the Red’s CEO, GM and PR director explaining Joe’s situation. The Reds responded saying they would let Joe’s friends on the field for pregame batting practice and

It was pretty awesome, the Reds are a first class organization. We got to meet the owner and GM and everyone was just so nice and down to earth. I’ve taken my kids to multiple stadiums when they were growing up, so it was special.” Joe Rumsey

that Joe would walk the lineup up to home plate for the meeting with the coaches and umpires. When Rumsey found out that they were planning to go to Great American Ball Park, he was ecstatic despite not knowing about going on the field. “It was a cool surprise,” said Rumsey. “We’ve had a group of guys from Prattsburgh that go to games at different stadiums every year.” Rumsey, an avid Bills and Sabres fan and lifelong resident of Bath, became a see SURPRISE | 6A

Broadband survey: Immediate need for services Submitted BATH – Efforts to encourage broadband services for all Steuben County residents will continue, spurred by a recent survey indicating only 33 percent of those surveyed reported they receive adequate services.

The recent survey, conducted by ECC Technologies, Inc., in Steuben and Yates counties, showed services to businesses and homes in Steuben lag behind other counties and rate far below state standards. According to the Steuben/ Yates survey there is a clear and

Avoca native aims SLP to host DJ Dance Party to help village grow The Spectator AVOCA — Former Avoca resident Christine E.B. Howard, a Bath-Haverling graduate and founder, owner, and president of Buffalo-based  firm E.B. Howard Consulting, recently picked up the organization’s first municipality close to home, adding to a long list of diverse client pool (ranging from school districts, higher education institutions, various nonprofits, and for-profit startups). E.B. Howard Consulting will be helping the Village of Avoca map out possible grant funding opportunities in alignment with Village’s strategic plan to help fund much-needed upgrades and repairs to municipal properties and departments as well as spur local economic development. “I grew up in Avoca. I know the community dynamic of the village and the surrounding region really well and we really want to see Avoca and the region grow and thrive,” said Howard. Howard hopes this will be the first step in supporting Avoca’s plan as well as possibly delivering similar services to surrounding communities. Avoca was first settled around 1794 and incorporated as a village in 1883. The Village is actively renovating park areas to create a new playground, field, and pavilion on older land that was given to the village. The Village’s aim is to provide residents with the maximum amount of services while keeping property taxes as low as possible.

Guthrie warns of scam

SAYRE, Pa. – Guthrie has been made aware that residents have received fraudulent phone calls that display as coming from Guthrie on Caller ID. Technology allows perpetrators to alter information on the recipient’s caller ID so Guthrie’s name appears. The caller identifies themselves as a staff member of a provider’s office calling to update their records and asking for personal information or reports an issue with a credit card. The scam is not new but has been particularly active in recent days. Guthrie does not initiate phone calls requesting personal information such as social security number or credit card information. The only exception is a call requesting that a patient pre-register in advance of a procedure or test which a patient has already scheduled. Residents who receive such calls are asked to contact local law enforcement agencies. • Submitted



Sen. Tom O’Mara:

Discovery sounds new tick-based alarm The New York State Senate established a Task Force on Lyme and TickBorne Diseases in 2013 to keep attention, public policies and resources focused on this public health threat. Over the last five years, it has become increasingly important work. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), New York State has the third-highest number of confirmed cases of Lyme disease in the nation. Our task force has been actively working, session after session, to strengthen the state’s response through awareness and education, research, and prevention and treatment. State funding has been increased. We continue to build on a foundation of legislation, including this year’s action requiring the state to conduct an impact study on how infectious diseases and blood-borne pathogens, including Lyme and TBDs, may have correlations with mental illness in infected individuals. This new “Mental Health Impacts Report” would enable better treatment of the mental health consequences associated with these infections. Additional legislation would establish an expert-based Lyme and TBDs Working Group to review current best practices for diagnosis, treatment and prevention. Most recently, I joined my Task Force colleagues to call on the state Department of Health (DOH) to study a potentially dangerous tick species found for the first time in New York. We are targeting the recent discovery of the Longhorned tick in downstate Westchester County – the first time this species has been discovered within our borders. This tick is not native to the United States, nor has it been known to inhabit the U.S., but it has now been found in New Jersey, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina and Arkansas, in addition to New York. In a July 25 letter to the state health commissioner, we wrote, “The presence in New York of this particular species raises public health concerns related to the potential spread of Lyme disease and other associated tick borne diseases to individuals and companion animals. Additionally, the Longhorned tick poses a threat to our state’s agricultural economic

markets as this species has been recognized as a disease vector that may infect livestock. Infected livestock may exhibit fatigue, reduced milk production, and in instances of mass infections, death. With New York already ranking third in 2016 in confirmed cases of Lyme disease, and third in 2017 among all states in milk production, these concerns require a more in-depth look to protect the people of our State as well as our agricultural economic interests.” Specifically, we want the DOH to study: • the extent to which this new species has, and is predicted, to spread throughout the state; • the health impacts that the Longhorn tick may have on humans, companion animals and livestock; • improvements to the methods physicians and veterinarians use to report the discovery of this particular tick; and • recommendations for eradicating the Longhorned tick. We believe the study’s results would heighten awareness and education, publicize areas where the ticks may be found, and provide valuable information to local communities concerning increased activity related to the species, information that could help reduce infections. Earlier this year the CDC reported that instances of Lyme disease have almost doubled since 2004 – and the number of cases is likely a great deal higher because of the difficulty in diagnosing Lyme. Lyme and other tickborne disease represent a major concern for everyone who enjoys the outdoors. It’s a serious public health threat that continues to demand our attention, and action. Those who suffer from Lyme disease and other TBDs can endure years of frustration seeking effective diagnosis and treatment. Our task force will continue its work to encourage and implement a state-level action plan and a comprehensive response.



Do we still have the right stuff? By Charita M. Goshay More Content Now

The late Neil Armstrong was the perfect hero. He was so unassuming, most Americans couldn’t have identified him in a police lineup. In terms of spirit and temperament, he was a direct descendant of Wilbur and Orville Wright, the Dayton brothers whose aircraft changed the world in 1903, and Col. John Glenn, another Ohioan who became the first American to orbit Earth. Armstrong doubtlessly was a touchstone for others, including the late Judith Resnick of Akron, a brilliant NASA engineer who lost her life onboard the Space Shuttle Challenger in 1986. Strange how Ohioans — people who live so close to the ground — are at the center of the three most important aviation stories in history. But I digress. Armstrong’s own brilliance and immeasurable bravery were obscured by his lack of self-aggrandizement. No true Ohioan was really surprised when he returned to his farm in Wapakoneta after retiring from NASA.

But on July 20, 1969, on a night hotter than a wool blanket, Neil Armstrong descended from Apollo 11 onto the surface of the moon and changed the world. You probably have to be a certain age to fully grasp the courage and audacity it required for the U.S. to attempt a manned moonshot. Even in the maelstrom of Vietnam and the fight for civil rights, NASA and its astronauts embodied our collective innate belief that we always figure it out; that we could accomplish anything. We are America As Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins took off in their module, the message was clear: We are America. There’s nothing we can’t do. So how we get from there to here?

When did the country that delivered Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins to the moon and back without so much as a scratch, become so afraid, so small, so willfully incurious? How did we go from traversing the Sea of Tranquility to wrestling down in the mud? On July 20, 1969, we accomplished what should have been impossible. Consider the technology in your pocket is more sophisticated than what jettisoned Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins from Earth’s surface. But we did it. America conquered that which had eluded and fascinated man for millennia. So, why can’t we get it together here on the ground? It’s math Perhaps it’s because space exploration are essentially mathematics and physics problems. “Two plus two equals four” is an immutable equation in any language, culture or belief system. You can’t spin, shade or argue against it. In 2018, everything else, it appears, is subject to debate. When its findings are inconvenient, even science, the method by which we ex-

plore the wonders of the universe, is subjected to a level of distrust and second-guessing unseen in times past. The thirst for adventure and discovery once so analogous to being American has been sated instead with the junk food of mediocre entertainment, coupled with endless refills of outrage, courtesy of social media. This month kicks off a yearlong celebration of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. There will be plenty of books and specials and articles extolling the crew of the Apollo and the scientists and engineers who helped make it possible. It celebrates a dream that even transcended that which divided us. It was John F. Kennedy who first proposed the idea, and Richard Nixon who saw it through. Given the level of toxicity and partisanship today, you have to wonder if it could be accomplished today, even with all our know-how. It’s a far distance to fall.

Resistance move strengthens shoulders

By Marlo Alleva More Content Now

Strong shoulders not only look good, but they help hold your body tall and aid in proper posture. Their health and strength is imperative to our daily needs. Most upper-body moves have some positive effect on our shoulder region, but direct exercises have the best results. Our move today is a front resistance band raise. You will need a light to medium band. This move focuses on the front portion of the shoulder. It will also work your chest and upper back. Proper form is imperative for flexibility and functionality, and safety also. Begin this move by standing tall and gripping the resistance band in the hand that you will use first. Loop the band under one or both feet, depending on the level of resistance you desire. Roll the shoulders back and down, and engage the core. Extend your starting arm out in front of your body keeping the elbow slightly soft. Palms facing down, proceed to lift the arm to shoulder level, or as close as you can. Once you reach your fullest amount of resistance, return the arm to starting position. Continue this lift and lower movement for at least 10 times then repeat with other arm. Keep these sets moving, alternating back and forth after each set, giving yourself three to five sets on each side. This angle of resistance will be working your shoulder region


slightly different than most upper body moves and can be slightly awkward at times. Keep the resistance light and correct form is a must.

This shoulder raise is great for any combination of upper-body exercises, and good on its own for target work.

Continued from 1A fan of the Reds during the “Big Red Machine” era that included the likes of Pete Rose and saw the Reds win back-to-back World Series titles in 1975 and 1976. Burke had to tell Rumsey about the extracurricular event about two weeks before, despite trying to keep it a secret. “He about wet his pants when we told him,” said Burke. “It was great for us seeing him smile and laugh. Something he hasn’t done a lot of in awhile.” Rumsey enjoyed the whole experience in his favorite club’s park. “It was pretty awesome, the Reds are a first class organization,” he said. “We got to meet the owner and GM and everyone was just so nice and down to earth. I’ve taken my kids to multiple stadiums when they were growing up, so it was special.” In addition to the game, the group visited “Little Fenway” outside of Cincinnati, a small version of Boston’s Fenway built by Tim Naehring, Vice President of Baseball Operations for the New York Yankees who played for the Cohocton Red Wings and Burke during the summer of 1986.


Continued from 1A The need is there: Local libraries in rural areas report people line up for access to personal computers and laptops. The mobile Internet units they offer patrons are constantly being checked out for use. The lack of state-standard Internet speeds also has a direct impact on business, especially those in Steuben rural regions. Citing a cost of more than $50,000 to hook into a nearby Internet cable, one agri-business owner said, “I could modernize my farm with internet as it would allow me to use internet apps and modern equipment. I could expand and grow my farm, maybe even hire a few people.” Steuben officials recognize the county presents unique challenges to broadband connection. The sheer size of Steuben is an important issue, with more than two dozen towns to serve and three large population centers in Bath, Corning and Hornell. Roughly half of county residents live in rural mountainous areas spread out from the Finger Lakes to the Pennsylvania border. “We know there are stumbling blocks. We know this is a challenge,” county Manager Jack Wheeler said. “It’s one of the reasons we joined with other counties and agencies in the region to set up the Southern Tier Network.” Despite Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s pledge in 2015 to achieve statewide broadband access this year, there appears to be no specific funding now available to improve access in Steuben. The survey recommendations for communities and potential providers include: • Outreach and Education: In order to attract new carriers and encourage current carriers to expand their coverage, communities need to better understand the benefits and need for better access to the Internet. Broadband has become a necessity, especially in rural areas, with recent advancements in telehealth, online education, and e-commerce. • New potential customers for providers: Often providers are unwilling to invest or expand services into rural areas. The survey provides very specific marketing data to carriers that can be used to justify new investments. • Access to the Southern Tier Network (STN): The fiber network is an incentive to both existing and competitive providers who would not need to build their own fiber infrastructure to reach customers. The study data along with maps of the STN fiber network are available for interested providers. • Pursue funding: Work with STN to apply for state and federal grants to expand broadband coverage.


Schumer: Tariffs reduced The Spectator

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer announced last week that, following his push, the U.S. Department of Commerce has lowered the rates on the tariffs on uncoated Canadian groundwood paper imports imposed earlier this year, that severely impacted New York’s already at-risk community newspapers and paper producers. “Lowering these unwise and unjust tariffs is a positive step in the right direction to support our already at-risk community newspapers, the American paper industry and the many jobs it supports. Our local newspapers are fundamental to vibrant communities and healthy democracy, which is why I fought so hard to push the U.S. Department of Commerce to low-

hearing or continue to reserve those rights. “I have no comment at this time,” said Casella, when asked about the case. “It’s still ongoing.” If Khouzam decides to waive the preliminary hearing at Benton Town Court the case would be transferred to a Yates County Court. Yates County Deputies arrived at the scene at about 5:55 a.m. Monday, located the victim and took Khouzam, who was then walking on Arrowhead Beach Road, into custody. Khouzam did know the victim. The victim was then taken by Life Net helicopter  to Strong Memorial Hospital, where she underwent emergency surgery to head and upper body injuries. Deputies also discovered a

small mixed breed Chihuahua dog inside the home allegedly killed by Khouzam, belonging to the victim, deputies said. The dog was transported to Cornell University Animal Hospital for forensic autopsy. Khouzam had been arrested last Sunday by Yates Deputies in Branchport, as a mentally ill person who was an endangerment to himself or others, deputies said. He was taken to Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hospital. Deputies said Khouzam was released from the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hospital late last Sunday evening and went to his Branchport address. The investigation into the incident continues by the Yates County Sheriff ’s Office and the Yates County District Attorney, officials said.

IN BRIEF Bath Church sets sanctuary tours The First Presbyterian Church of Bath will again open its sanctuary for tours on Wednesdays Aug. 15, 22 & 29 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Tour guides will be on hand to help visitors observe the impressive work of Louis Comfort Tiffany who created the sanctuary’s interior design ca 1895-7. It has been said that “his rich materials and colors and his use of symbolic motif combine to create an effect rarely found among American Protestant churches”. We invite you to visit this magnificent sanctuary and see for yourself the abundance of symbolism that Tiffany used for the praise and worship of God! The church is located at 6 E. Morris St. in Bath. • Submitted


Printed across the screen in the opening moments of “Christopher Robin” are the words “Deep in the Hundred Acre Wood ...” They’re accompanied by sepia drawings, delicately animated, of some of A.A. Milne’s cherished characters. Then everything switches to live action, with young Christopher Robin (Orton O’Brien), in those woods, having a big, funny, messy celebration with his pals: Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet, Owl, and the rest. Though it’s a happy time, there’s a tinge of melancholy in the air, because it’s a farewell party for Christopher who, according to additional words on the screen, is “leaving his childhood behind,” and heading off to boarding school. But some viewers might miss part of that plotline because they’ll be so fascinated by the realism of the stunning CGI work in the animal characters. It shouldn’t take more than a few seconds for anyone of any age to decide that they’re real. Once their wonderfully developed personalities come into play, everyone will be so wrapped up in what they’re watching, there will be no further thoughts of “how did they do that?” Hopefully, plenty of attention will be paid to the dialogue which, as it should be, is equally as important as the visuals. There’s Christopher saying goodbye to his pal Pooh, promising, “I won’t ever forget you.” Then, in an instance of smooth, swift, storytelling, all of it done before the opening credits are finished, young Christopher is orphaned, grows up to become adult


Christopher (Ewan McGregor), meets and marries Evelyn (Hayley Atwell), goes off to fight in World War II, comes home and starts a family, and lands a job as an efficiency manager at a large luggage company. But as an adult with responsibilities, he breaks his promise and forgets about Winnie the Pooh and all of his pals and the good times in Hundred Acre Wood. Alas, he’s also forgotten how to be happy; he’s now all serious and stuffy. And the drudgery of his job keeps taking him away from spending time with his wife and daughter Madeline (Bronte Carmichael). “I haven’t seen you laugh in years,” says Evelyn just after Christopher says he can’t go away to the country with them because he has to work. There’s a different kind of trouble in Hundred Acre Wood. One morning Pooh (voice of Jim Cummings) wakes up and can’t find his friends, so he heads to London to ask Christopher for help with this dilemma. The meeting does not go smoothly, at least not for Christopher, who later admits he hasn’t thought about those good old days for 30 years, even though Pooh says he and his friends have thought about Christopher every day.

But hold on. This is not a sad and dreary movie. It’s sweet and charming, it’s often outright hilarious, and it’s wistful and whimsical. After some comic misadventures in London, Christopher does go back to Hundred Acre Wood where, because he’s now a man, not a boy, he can’t quite fit into the places he used to play. He also admits to Pooh that he’s not who he used to be, that he’s lost direction in life. Lest things get gloomy, there’s Pooh’s pals to deal with. Tigger (also Jim Cummings) likes to bounce around and sing. He gets a lot of laughs. But the most giggles come from the actions and words of woe-is-me Eeyore (deep voice of Brad Garrett), he of little faith in himself. The story eventually brings all of the main people and animals to the Wood, then back to London on an “expedition.” Its subject matters range between “Your dreams can all come true” to “What happened to my dreams?” With Christopher Robin at the center of it all, the main concerns are whether or not he’ll find himself, and if he’ll figure out what’s most important in life. On the way to those answers, the film will keep everyone watching totally engrossed and loving every minute of it.

The tradition of deer hunting in Western New York By Oak Duke

WHAT’S UP at MOSSY BANK PARK August 12, 2018 – Rains at the end of July and the beginning of August certainly broke the dry spell which had been on-going at Mossy Bank Park since late June. Total rainfall in Bath for July was ultimately 4.64 inches, most of that falling in the last week, breaking the 4-inches over 4 weeks threshold for good fungal fruiting. Additional lighter rainfalls so far in August should insure the presence of mushrooms for a while. Mushrooms and other members of the Kingdom Fungi are the most obscure and under-appreciated group of organisms among the three macroscopic kingdoms: Plants, Animals, and Fungi. But fungi are as vital to a working ecosystem as any of the other life-forms. Fungi’s major ecological roles are that of: saprophytic decomposers, recycling dead plants and animals; parasites on plants and animals, especially arthropods; and mutual symbionts, living in close and obligate association with the roots of almost all higher plants. Many people encountering forest fungi find them strange or even disgusting. Mycologists, those who study fungi, are continuously amazed by the forms, relationships, and ecological roles of these fascinating organisms. Even mycologists find some of them strange, like the one commonly called Lobster Mushroom, a seasonal inhabitant of Mossy Bank Park. You may have noticed that I did not list the scientific name when I mentioned Lobster Mushroom. If you look in most field guides, they will note the Latin binomial for Lobster Mushroom as Hypomyces lactifluorum. Usually when you look at a Lobster Mushroom, that is correct for the fungus you are seeing; but it is more complicated. This fungus, the whole of which resembles in size and shape a lobster’s claw (hence the name), presents a finely bumpy, bright reddishorange surface which is indeed the ascomycete fungus, Hypomyces lactifluorum. If you pick a bit of the surface material off, and examine it in a microscope, under those tiny bumps are the characteristic asci (spore containing vessels) of an ascomycete. Yet the overall size and form of Lobster mushrooms appear much more typical of basidiomycete mushrooms in the genera Russula and Lactarius. Moreover, there are rare times when you find a Lobster Mushroom only partially reddish-orange, and the rest of it looks exactly like one of those other two genera. That is because they really are


D. Randy Weidner still part Russula or Lactarius. The Hypomyces is a parasite on those other mushrooms, growing on the surface and ultimately changing the whole underlying mushroom. When the Hypomyces has finished consuming the basidiomycete, you can no longer tell what the original mushroom it attacked once was. Yet Lobster Mushroom has long been known as a popular, good-tasting, edible mushroom. Should one be concerned that it was formerly another mushroom? Some Russula and Lactarius mushrooms are good to eat, but few are as flavorful as Lobster Mushroom. Several Russula and Lactarius species are very acrid, too hot to eat. A few Russulas make you vomit. Knowing this made some people skeptical about eating Lobster Mushrooms. But take heart (and fork), because recent chemical analysis of Lobster Mushrooms reveals the Hypomyces radically alters its prey mushrooms’ composition, in a good way. Comparing the percentages of six chemical groups, the Lobster Mushroom revealed significantly less phenolics and terpenoids, those chemicals likely responsible for the nasty tastes and toxins, when compared to an uninfected Russula species. Of greater gastronomic importance, there was also much more lipid and more amino acids in the Lobster Mushroom as compared to the Russula, the likely reason it becomes more savory. This long awaited, practical scientific study should delight all you mycophagists (mushroom eaters). Now reassured, go forth and gather those forest Lobsters, and bon appetit! Special note for kids and grown-ups alike: come to the Mossy Bank Pond site on Saturday Aug. 18, at 10 a.m., and join nature photographers Ron Good and Dawn Sutherlin to get some pointers on improving your outdoor photos. Bring a camera or just your cell phone, and capture interesting subjects around the pond, at the pollinator meadow, or take advantage of the opportunity to photograph some avian raptors supplied by Tanglewood Nature Center.

Time was, and not so long ago, (at least to those of us who are past the mid-century point in our lives,) when it was a fairly unique and a special event to get a deer, any deer here in Western New York. After all, this is New York state. We like to forget that fact sometimes, but are reminded of it every year when we get our taxes. Course we have always had taxes, but wildlife such as deer, bear, and wild turkey were very rare, if not nonexistent in those years between World War I and World War II. Many folks believe that there has always been a deer season here. But in fact, there were virtually no whitetails in Western New York not so very long ago. During the first deer season here in the Southern Tier (about 1939, depending on the county) hunters harvested a few bucks, and the season lasted only for a few days. But along with the opening of the first deer season here, the men and women of Western New York and the Southern Tier were caught up in the turmoil of World War II. Many of the men who were not carrying guns afield were carrying weapons abroad. But after they won the Great War, and came back, many started participating in this “brand new” local outdoor sport - deer hunting, something that they did not experience at all in their youth. And there was a lot to learn, not only about hunting the wily critter, but just as importantly, also about the proper care of meat and preparing the venison for the table. Early on, some folks were turned off by their first attempts at preparing and eating deer


High racked six-point in velvet in late July. meat. Their venison had a strong, gamy, wild taste and was tough when fried in a pan like bacon. We’ve learned a lot over the years in the proper preparation of venison for the plate. The delectable deer meat we enjoy after each successful season, from the little filets, seared that melt in the mouth, the steaming pot roast, smothered in onions and veggies where the meat falls off the bone, or the utilitarian ground venison, used in so many dishes from burgers to meat balls. Back in the early days, many folks just didn’t realize that venison needed to be treated differently than beef or pork partly because there is so little fat marbled into the meat. And this very low fat, cholesterol, and triglyceride count are some the reasons venison is such healthy and good eats. As time went by, more and more whitetails became organically part of the culinary tradition throughout the Appalachians. Some families prepared venison as a

unique and special meal, such as sausage, or salami, while others served it up more as a special treat, such as grilled backstraps. And still other families began to consider deer meat as the staple in the freezer with steaks, chops, and ground. With two deer licenses to a family, it was possible, even in the early days to “put up” or process a few deer. And that’s a lot of healthy eating, a bounty of meals for the average family. As time has gone on there’s been a steady expansion of the hunting tradition (which in a way we also mean the culinary tradition) getting passed from generation to generation; from father and mother to son and daughter. But it doesn’t always stick, that is, sometimes a son or daughter doesn’t feel their heart beat harder and their blood race a bit as deer season’s opening day approaches. The dream of the trophy buck has not captured everyone’s imagination. And it is not for everyone to pull a dead

deer up one hill or down another or to wait on a stump for hours in winter’s bone-numbing cold or sweating in Indian summer-like temperatures in a hot hunting outfit. And others of us feel a tremendous drive and desire to deer hunt. The feeling of anticipation fires up our minds and seethes under our skin. We yearn to get up in the trees and love the hunt itself. And we hanker for the taste of fresh venison, seared on the grill, maybe delicately marinated. But this mind set of the avid deer hunter is still a relatively new localized, community-wide sentiment in much of the rural landscape of Western New York where the whitetail deer thrives in now close to record numbers. Deer hunting today, now well into the 21st century, is an integral part of our culture here in Western New York, and actually part of our spiritual heritage as the generations of deer hunters have gone by when a time, not so long ago, didn’t even exist.

Rollerblade chase ends with 3 charged Steuben Courier CORNING — A police encounter with a 17-year-old male leaving a Maple Street residence last Wednesday morning — on rollerblades and carrying a garbage bag — led to the arrest of three people. Corning City Police Chief Jeff Spaulding said patrolmen attempted to stop Damon O.L. Harris, 17, of Stanton Street, Corning, on a vehicle and traffic law violation on Davis Street, moments after he left the Maple Street residence, which police said was known for drug activity. Spaulding said Harris briefly eluded patrolmen, fleeing across the Hugh Gregg Elementary school property, into a neighboring back yard and running into a Maple Street residence. Patrolmen reportedly responded to the area and determined the residence to be the same that Harris had originally exited. They also observed two vehicles leaving the area, Spaulding said. Police conducted traffic stops of both vehicles. Harris was located in the rear of one of the vehicles, police said. He was sweating profusely, not wearing shoes and wearing a polo shirt backward. Harris was identified and taken into custody. Police said Harris was found to be in possession of a quantity of methamphetamine, police said. Further investigation revealed that Harris had thrown the bag he was seen carrying into the back yard of a residence on Davis Street. The bag was recovered and found to contain five one-pot type methamphetamine labs and other items commonly used in the manufacture of methamphetamine, police said. Patrolmen then  interviewed Julie Sweeney,  43,

of 15 Maple St., the operator the vehicle  Harris occupied, who  was also taken into  custody when she was  allegedly found to be  in possession of a switchblade knife. The second vehicle seen by patrolmen leaving the Maple Street scene was also pulled over by police in the Wegmans parking lot on Bridge Street, police said. After an investigation and a K-9 sweep patrolmen reportedly located multiple drugs and contraband in the passenger compartment of the vehicle. The vehicle, driven by Jonathan Ruggles, 29, of 1989 Watauga Ave., Corning, was found to contain a quantity of methamphetamine, acetaminophen and oxycodone tablets, oxycodone hydrochloride tablets, suboxone film, amphetamine tablets, and other paraphernalia indicating an intent to sell the drugs, according to police. Harris was charged with unlawful disposal of methamphetamine laboratory material, tampering with physical evidence, seventh degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and other traffic infractions. Sweeney was charged with fourthdegree criminal possession of a weapon. Ruggles was charged with third-andfourth degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, five counts of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and second-degree criminally using drug paraphernalia. Police said the investigation is still ongoing and more charges may follow. Harris and Ruggles were arraigned in Corning City Court and sent to the Steuben County Jail, police said. Sweeney was issued an appearance ticket and released on her own recognizance. Each is slated to appear in Corning City Court at a later date.

Public Health notes National Immunization Awareness Month Submitted BATH – With National Immunization Awareness Month beginning this week and schools opening soon, Steuben County Public Health officials remind parents and guardians of the importance of keeping their children’s vaccinations up to date. Babies under the age of 2 should be vaccinated to protect them from 14 serious diseases, and school-age children are required, by law, to continue with a recommended vaccination schedule for the best protection against preventable diseases, according to Steuben Public Health. The timing of vaccines is decided by studies showing when protection is strongest, so children also need to receive vaccines for diseases they are likely to be exposed to later in life. Building strong immunity early is important for the best protection for the child – and those around them. Healthcare providers and patients should work together to make sure all the recommended vaccines are received on time for the best protection, officials said. “Vaccines don’t just protect the individual child,” county Public Health Education Coordinator Lorelei Wagner said. “Immunization is a shared responsibility. Vaccinating each child can help protect the entire community — especially babies who are too young to be vaccinated or protected fully.” The need for vaccinations does not end in childhood. Every year, tens of thousands of adults in the U.S. suffer from diseases that could be prevented by vaccines, such as influenza, pneumonia, hepatitis B and the human papilloma virus (HPV). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s schedule for immunizations,

Did you know? • Vaccines are safe. Vaccines go through many tests before they are used, and they are carefully monitored after they are licensed for safety. • The human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine is most effective when given by age 12. Children have a stronger immune response than older teens and they are less likely to have been exposed to any form of HPV. The HPV vaccine has been proven so effective that children less than age 15 now only need two doses of the vaccine. • By receiving the flu shot and Tdap vaccine to protect against whooping cough, pregnant women can protect themselves and give their babies some disease protection to carry into the first few months of life before babies are able to receive vaccines or be fully protected by their own vaccines. by age, is located at https://www.cdc. gov/vaccines/schedules/easy-to-read/ child.html. Steuben Public Health participates in the Vaccines for Children and the Vaccines for Adults programs and has vaccines available for those who are uninsured or under-insured. Call (607) 664-2438 to schedule an appointment for vaccinations.
