The principals of Matric were invited to the ceremony by the Pennsylvania offices of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) to represent the numerous small businesses in PA that benefited from the Tax Reform Act. The National Federation of Independent Business has been the voice of small business in the US for over 75 years. NFIB is Pennsylvania’s leading small business association, promoting and protecting the right of its members to own, operate and grow their businesses. President Trump’s attendance was the highlight of the event. He welcomed the numerous small business owners to the White House. The President gave a rousing 30-minute speech.

Did you know….? Red, white and blue, loud bangs, colorful sparks in the air: yes Fourth of July. We celebrate our independence. Wonder how it all started?  It all started on July 4th 1777 when the first fireworks were set off. However many historians believe they were actually developed in the second century B.C. in ancient Liuyang, China. It is believed that

Cruising the lake in a boat, paddling off shore in a kayak, riding a bike around the lake, playing a round of golf or tennis-those are the activities many of us enjoy around Chautauqua Lake. One can surely look forward to a cool drink and delicious meal at the end of the day but still want to remain outdoors in the lovely summer breezes. There is a place on Chautauqua Avenue in Lakewood where one can do just that- Craft. Burgers and Brews. If you haven’t

Publisher’s Word “First Work – Then Play”

As my farmer friend always says: “You gotta make hay when the sun shines”! And if you’re lucky enough to live in this beautiful corner of New York State, truer words were

never said. Walking around our villages, one can see an explosion of work and activities associated with the season. Everything is just coming into its “summer mode” – beautiful flowers, clean streets and squeakyclean storefronts abound – all designed to enhance our lovely ambience. Homeowners also need to get cracking - mowing the grass, sweeping the porch, and tending the garden are just a few of the routine things that need attention. It may be hard work, but couldn’t we just simplify everything by calling it a “labor of love”?

Try not to dismay, my friends… Before you can relax and enjoy, you have to get the serious stuff done. But after the sun goes down, take some time for a nice barbeque, open a bottle of your favorite spirit, and get some rest for tomorrow. You’re going to need it! Just make sure you remember – even briefly – why you’re able to be in such a wonderful place, at such a wonderful time. It’s all about being blessed and fortunate enough to be right where you are at this very moment. So, enjoy! Until next week… JZ-C PGA Tour

REUNION AT MAPLE SPRINGS was written by Bob Terreberry who currently resides in that lovely hamlet on the eastern side of Lake Chautauqua. The work is a quick-paced cozy mystery, which is centered in Maple Springs and the surrounding area. It is the second book in the Colin O’Brien Maple Springs Mystery Series. “I had a lot of fun introducing Colin O’Brien and his friends to readers in MURDER AT MAPLE SPRINGS and I had always intended this first book to be a part of a series. This NEW adventure set in Maple Springs is very different but, as the title says, we can all enjoy a reunion lakeside with old literary friends,” said Terreberry.

Terreberry has lived in the area since 1970 having taught school, has been an active part of the local theatre scene and has served on a variety of community boards and councils. Terreberry and his wife, Irene, are the proud parents of three children and the delighted grandparents of four. Joining with the library and Terreberry to launch this book is Carrie Wolfgang the proprietor of Novel Destination – Used Book Emporium. Ms. Wolfgang is the evening’s sponsor. “Bob and Irene and I have been friends for many years. In fact I baby-sat for their children as a teenager. They returned the favor by keeping a quiet eye on my parents when we kids could

not check in on them. I am pleased to have encouraged Bob’s writing and am happy to be able to help him with this piece of the publishing process,” said Ms. Wolfgang. The book is published by No Frills Buffalo, a publishing company that closely guides authors keeping them highly involved in all aspects of getting their work into print and into the hands of readers. NFB also prints, promotes and distributes their author’s work. Local graphic artist Kathy Cherry has also added to the local color of the novel with a cover illustration and a map of the area that she has created to help the reader to better cuddle up with the novel and the charming milieu of Maple Springs. At the launch on July 26, Terreberry will be there to discuss what he calls “his ongoing adventure in writing.” There will be books available for purchase which Bob will be glad to sign. The event will take place from 6:30 until 8:00 with a brief discussion beginning at 6:45. Light refreshments will be served. In keeping with the reunion theme, Novel Destination Used Book Emporium will provide some “white elephant” gift bags for lucky winners. Good-natured laughs will be a part of the evening too!

Demo Day/Demo Rides

Chautauqua Marina’s Open House July 14 Featuring Veranda Pontoon Boats

Mark your calendar now for Sat. July 14 10 am – 2pm for Demo Day/ Demo Rides Veranda Pontoon Boats powered by “YAMAHA” @Chautauqua Marina 104 West Lake Road, Mayville N. Y. In addition to Demo Rides you can stroll across 750 feet of our waterfront and take a look at our waterfront erosion project. We have planted plants natural to the environment and have stoned our waterfront to help prevent

erosion. Join us for hotdogs, demo rides and enjoy our waterfront on Sat. July 14 10 am -2 pm.   Some facts about Veranda Pontoon Boat Construction:  Veranda Pontoons are built to last a lifetime. Every single one has a patented all-aluminum interlocking deck. The unibody construction beats competitors who use screwtogether decks that flex, make noise and has built-in

predetermined obsolescence. Veranda offers a quiet, smooth ride. Aluminum planks create hollow chambers that reduce weight and allow the deck to stay cool. 

Performance: Our boats exclusively use Yamaha Outboards, which set the standard for high performance. Double-toon and triple toons available.   When you combine Veranda construction with optimal performance, you get one incredible boat without the worry of continued, added weight over the life of other boats, reducing performance and integrity. Chautauqua Marina offers New and Used Pontoon and Power Boat sales, Boat Rentals, Ethanol Free Fuel, Service, Storage, Dockage and more!!!! Stop by on Sat.

Audubon Community Nature Center Looking For Local Entries to 2018 Photography Contest

Now could be the time you take the picture that wins a prize in the Audubon Community Nature Center 2018 Nature Photography Contest. This photograph, “Poppies,” by Lynda Younker of Ashville, N.Y., was an earlier finalist.

Jamestown, N.Y. – Brazil, Spain, Australia, and the Czech Republic are just some of the countries whose residents have submitted entries to the Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) 2018 Nature Photography Contest. “Most of the people who’ve entered so far found out about us by googling,” said contest coordinator Kim Turner, explaining that Audubon has received photographs from around the world. “Right now,” Turner continued, “we’d love to see more coming from closer to home!” In 2017, contest winners came from as nearby as neighboring Cattaraugus County in New York and as far away as Hawaii. Turner explained that the contest supports Audubon’s mission of connecting people to nature. “Not

only is the photographer outside, experiencing nature first hand as they seek out compositions and subject matter, but the viewer then also connects through viewing the work. Successful photographs draw the viewer into the shot, inviting them to explore visually, and hopefully build upon their own relationship with nature.” You are invited to submit work that best fits within the concept of this year’s theme, Natural Wonders: Big and Small. First place winners in both the Adult (ages 18 or older, or out of high school) and Youth (ages 8 to 18, or still in high school) divisions will receive prizes of $300 cash plus $75 gift cards to Delaware Camera ( Second place winners will receive $100 plus $50 gift cards to

Delaware Camera. Nature photographer Bill Smith will judge the entries after the July 31, 2018, submission deadline. ACNC will make and frame prints of the winning photographs that will be on exhibit at the Nature Center for one year. Winning photos and 12 finalists (six in each division) will be displayed indefinitely on the contest website (acncphotocontest. com) along with the photographer’s name and city/state/country. Winners will be named in a news release that is widely distributed, including to their local media, when known. To foster artistic development, winners and finalists can opt in to receive a personalized critique from the judge. Full details of the competition as well as images of previous winners and finalists can be found at Audubon Community Nature Center builds and nurtures connections between people and nature by providing positive outdoor experiences, opportunities to learn about and understand the natural world, and knowledge to act in environmentally responsible ways.

The seminar will focus on the ongoing restoration of a homemade Hacker Craft originally built by David Lawson Sr., the owner of the Lawson Center in Bemus Point. For those new to the Boat Show, the Antique and Classic Boat Society (ACBS) has established the five boat classifications as the following: historic, antique, classic, late classic, and contemporary. These age classifications, which will all be featured on the 14th, apply to both the boat itself and the motor. Boats are also

Cont. From Cover on-one conversation. They spoke about the history of the Matric Group of businesses and how the TRA enabled Matric to further expand their business and hire more employees in their three facilities. The President’s daughter Ivanka Trump who is a small business owner herself, attended the ceremony as did many members of the Trump cabinet. What is the Matric Group and what do they do? Matric Group is a family owned business, operated by Rick and Terry Turner. Prior to purchasing Matric, Rick was president of another family business, Falconer Glass Products. They are joined in the business by their son Bradley Turner. Brad had worked for Morgan Stanley in New York City for six years before joining his parents in the Matric Group as Vice President of Business Development. Matric Group, headquartered in Seneca, Pa., consists of three sister companies. Matric LTD and Dynamic Manufacturing specialize in printed circuit board (PCB) and other design and assembly services, while Windurance specializes in wind turbine blade pitch technologies. Matric is a full service Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) provider. Since opening its doors in 1971, Matric has become

classified as either preserved - those with at least 60% of their original wood - or restored - boats with less than 60% of their original wood, respectively. “Also, contrary to previous years, there will not be any ACBS judging,” Hopfinger said. “Registrants can come to the event without any pressure, just relax, and have a good time. We will give the patrons an opportunity to vote for their favorite boat to win the ‘People’s Choice Award.’ Only one boat will be chosen for this award, so we encourage everyone to stop at the Info tent to pick up a ballot.” Junior skippers and first mates will also have the opportunity to take part in the day’s festivities as members of the “Youth Judging Program.” Kids ages 8-14 can be guided through the show field as a

group to pre-selected boats where they will interact with owners and learn the history behind each of them. Later in the day, there will also be a Chinese auction as well as the “Start Your Engines” event. “‘Start Your Engines’ will begin with the outboards, followed by the four and six-cylinder inboards, and end with the V-8s,” added Hopfinger. “Hearing those engines roar is such a cool part of the show; you won’t want to miss it!” Registration will begin at 7:30am the morning of the event. The Village Casino Docks are located at 1 Lakeside Drive in Bemus Point, NY.

The winner of Keg Bowling is awarded a custom made trophy that STBC has made every year for the game. While you’re enjoying the game, beer and food, Mosaic Foundation will be on the scene to set the mood with their live reggae tunes. Nathan Arnone, STBC Brand Manager, spoke with The Lakeside Ledger to explain in colorful detail the music-to-

skillful in all aspects of product development and has supported a wide variety of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and industries. Technical competence, market expertise and a customer service focus driven work-ethic make Matric an excellent partner for projects of any complexity. In 1993 Rick Turner acquired the Franklin, PA business. In 1995 he purchased and renovated an abandoned elementary school building and moved his company headquarters to its current Seneca, PA location. Under the Turners’ guidance the past quarter century has seen Matric continued the company’s history of excellence. The business has outgrown their space several times, requiring numerous additions expanding the physical plant to its current 80,000 square foot size. In today’s highly electronic world, it’s critical to stay abreast of technological advancements that are available in the industry. To meet the demands and remain competitive, Matric added the latest state-of-theart equipment. The pass thru tax incentive of the 2017 Tax Reform Act allowed Matric to purchase new equipment to meet the expanding demand for their services. Last fall, they completed a $1.4 million capital equipment investment for the installation of a surface mount technology line, consisting of 13 new machines that can place smaller parts into devices with lightningquick speed and enhanced

precision and accuracy. Now, the company has the capacity to place over 70,000 parts an hour, in hopes of reaching new levels of efficiency and customer satisfaction. The new machinery required more employees. In 2000 Matric began a partnership with Windurance. The Coraopolis, PA based company produces a variety of pitch control platforms for wind turbines from 300 KW up to 10 MW. They also offer hybrid power management systems for off-grid, custom inverter applications. All products are designed to perform flawlessly in the harshest of conditions including: off shore, high temperature, high humidity, cold weather and even the typically damaging effects of lightning. Dynamic Manufacturing Freeport, PA acquired in 2005 can produce low-to-mediumvolume, high-mix board assembly, Dynamic has the equipment and expert partners for your project — all the way from design to finished assembly. Since Dec. 2017 Matric has added over 100 workers at their Seneca plant. They plan to hire an additional 30 plant and management staff. When this latest hiring is complete the Matric Group will have over 400 employees. With the past history of business growth and excellence in product Matric was a worthy representative for Pennsylvania business. For more information see their website at www.matric. com.

Cont. From Cover wife of Buffalo industrialist Darwin D. Martin, as a summer home for the family on the bluffs above Lake Erie. This great American tale of a wealthy businessman, his wife’s steadfast influence in an otherwise male-dominated society and an acclaimed architect on the downward slope of his career, and a country on the brink of a financial crisis that threatened to extinguish it all, makes the intriguing Graycliff story, as architecture, finance, and family drama come together. The Martin family sold the property in 1951 to the Piarist Fathers, an order of Roman Catholic Priests from Hungary, who used Graycliff as their motherhouse, but in 1997, with only a handful of priests remaining, the property was put on the market. A developer was interested in the property to tear down the buildings and build condominiums on the prime lakefront location. A group of Buffalo individuals and families came together to acquire, preserve, restore and make accessible to the public the buildings and grounds designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. A non-profit was born, the Graycliff Conservancy, and an allvolunteer group of dedicated preservationists went to work. The restoration has proceeded in stages over two decades but are expected to be complete in 2019 at a total coast of $10 million. What was an initial idea for a Farmer’s Market in 2016


Cont. From Cover the first natural firecracker was a bamboo stalk, that when thrown into fire, would explode with a bang because of the overheating hollow pockets.

been to Lakewood in a while, the restaurant occupies the former site of the Scallion Bistro. Interior updates were done in 2016 and a patio addition was built and completed in the summer of 2017; the patio is a space where patrons can linger outside a little longer. The patio space has all that is needed for a quick shift in the weather. The space has a solid roof, awnings that can protect patrons from wind or rain and a tall heater for the chill. Music is part of the ambiance on the patio. Kev Rowe and Whiskey for Three will be featured on July 13 and 14 respectively. Tables and chairs can be maneuvered to accommodate larger parties. In fact, the entire restaurant can be reserved for a private party. Ryan Thayer, who owns Craft., says that the average private party size is 30-40 people. Food selections can be chosen from the menu or

by John Strawbrich, Building and Grounds Manager, was revisited in 2018 and incubated as The Market at Graycliff. Ryan Gravell, Tour and Retail Manager, jumped on board and the concept was expanded to securing vendors from Western New York, including farmers, producers, and artisans offering products that are crafted, produced, or farmed by the vendors themselves. Graycliff supports local food, products, and vendors that help build and strengthen the local economies. This fun community event is held each Friday in July and August with the exception of August 17th, when Ciderfest will be held. Vendors, including Food Trucks, may change weekly to make this outing a varied event for all to enjoy. Soaps, Candles, Farm Produce, Vineyards, Bakery, Cheese, Spirits, Artisans, EcoPrint Creations, Chocolates, Pierogies, Flowers, Beach Art Glass, and Buffalo-themed products can all be found at The Market. Gravell said, “Being a new market, we were only expecting a few hundred guests to come to our inaugural event [on July 6]. The weather was perfect and they kept on coming! We are estimating that over 2,000 guests joined in and 72 guests toured the home during six evening tours.” As the home is undergoing a complete interior restoration, the tour was just a tease, as so many guests are planning on a return to see the house and gardens completed. He added, “The Town of Evans was so supportive, and our dedicated volunteers were on

hand to lead additional tours and help with parking. Board Members and Staff all pitched in to make the day a success.” With 7 more evenings for The Market at Graycliff, staff have the opportunity to improve parking issues and fine tune the flow of guests to make this the Lake Erie “go to” destination of the summer. The 23 vendors at the July 6 market were pleased with the guest enthusiasm and sales. Patricia Marshall, owner of Lilly Belle Meads of Lancaster, New York said, “It was a bee-utiful night to enjoy some Mead along the water. We sold out of our product and will be better prepared for our visit next week.” Similarly Joey Kwilos of Kwilos Farms of Angola, New York said, “The turnout at the market was better than anything we were expecting.” Emily Kwilos said as they packed up, “ Here is our almost empty truck, 6 flats that contained berries, 6 one-half empty bushels that contained produce and an empty cooler. You are all a legend, thank you.” The Market at Graycliff is open Friday evenings from 4-8pm through August. There is no charge for admission or parking. Additional details about Graycliff and the market are available online at Artist Carrie Tredo of Two Lakes Studios in Mayville, New York, on Chautauqua Lake said, “Such a lovely setting for such a wide array of vendors for the guests to enjoy. As my art is created from nature, I appreciate the natural beauty of the setting, the gardens, just the feel of the experience.”

celebrations. Fireworks, sparklers, firecrackers today hit a record $800 million in sales as states relax laws. The only three states that now bans fireworks completely is Massachusetts, Delaware and New Jersey. Although New York State allows fireworks, New York City still bans all fireworks including firecrackers, bottle rockets, roman candles, spinners and arterial devices. Approximately 4 out of every 100,000 people are injured by fireworks. Men

experience most injuries. People aged 25-44 suffered the most firework related injuries. Faulty fuses that take too long to ignite are among the major causes of injuries. I enjoyed the firework show here on Chautauqua Lake in Clarion put on by the rib festival. There are several places to enjoy a good firework show. No need to do it yourself. Let the Pyrotechnics do the job. For more information go to Now you know….

can be customized to fit the theme or needs of the hosts. Thayer says “literally, we can do anything.” Day in and day out, however, is about feeding hungry customers who come from the area around Chautauqua Lake. As its name implies, the restaurant is about burgers-“the best burger around” according to the restaurant owner. To validate his opinion, Thayer shares that the restaurant and its burgers were recognized on a site called I Love on May 25 of 2018. The burgers, a mix of sirloin and brisket which give them a unique flavor, made a list entitled 10 of the Best Burgers in New York State. That honor may be enough to entice you to try one. While the restaurant lists 8 combos to choose from, one can also build a burger and choose from 7 cheeses, and 16 condiments. In addition, there is a Vegetarian Burger and a Game Burger of the month for the more adventurous eater. While the burgers are a focus of the business, they are by no means the only choice

for the diner. Appetizers include Buffalo Cauliflower and Tater Tots covered in pulled pork and other toppings. Sandwiches, rice bowls with different flavor profiles, and entrée sized salads are featured as well. The restaurant dispenses craft brews. The taps change seasonally. Besides beer from STBC, Ellicottville Brewing Company, and Great Lakes Brewing Company, choices from Four Mile Brewing Company in Olean and from breweries as far away as Wyoming are featured. For non-beer drinkers there are mixed drinks and wine available as well. Recently, a Blackberry Moonshine from Tennessee made the drink list and has been a popular choice this summer. Put Craft. Burgers and Brews on your list of places to try when you are ready to slow your pace. Sit, savor and enjoy time near the lake. Walk down to Richard O. Hartley Park when you’re through to enjoy more time outside and to view Lakewood’s incredible sunsets seen lakeside.

Great American Picnic

Silent Auction to Benefit Area Students Sunday July 15 at Chautauqua Inst.

Muskie Magic Children’s Book Book Signing by Local Author July 14th in Lakewood, NY

A Silent Auction will be held at the Chautauqua Institution on Sunday, July 15 from 12 – 2:30pm as part of the annual Great American Picnic. The Auction funds scholarships for Chautauqua County high school literary arts students to spend an all-expense paid week at the Institution, taking classes, attending lectures and concerts, and living on the grounds with a host family. The Auction and Picnic are sponsored by the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle Alumni Fund and take place on the lawn of the CLSC Caroline Bissell, Auction Co-Chair, modeling a cowboy Alumni Hall.

She has Lot 100’ x 300’ lived by it, swam in it, boated $725,000 and waterskied in it, done paintings and drawings of it, Realtors Welcome picnicked by it, watched it’s sun sets and dreamed by it… (716) 969-6576 even skated on it in winter. Now she tells and illustrates a true fish-tale that happened on this lake. While watching her youngest brother, many years ago at age 3, intently sit on the dock waiting for a fish to ‘bite’, she first penned this tale. Of course, it has morphed and been edited a thousand times since the first

inspiration. But, Patricia has been always surrounded by a ‘fishing’’ family…her father, her sons, her nephews, her grandfather… even her Swedish Grandma fished. Many a pan- fried fresh caught dinner has been enjoyed from Chautauqua Lake, including a stuffed baked MUSKIE, that Patricia remembers her mother baking. Today, Patricia’s brother and her oldest son are both fishing guides in Alaska and Oregon. Her other son also fishes, makes his own lures, and ties flies. He helped Patricia immensely by providing fishing gear and information used in illustrating MUSKIE MAGIC and bringing the story to life. Patricia’s dream was to become an ARTIST and also to illustrate children’s books. In third grade, she took lessons in pastel landscape painting from local artist Adon Trimm. She took the first art course offered by JCC back in the early 60’s, then went on to earn

a BA degree in Art Education from SUCB. She studied ART at the University of Siena, Italy for a whole semester, then did graduate study on site in Mexico on art, architecture and culture one whole summer, before finishing her Masters Degree in Art at Edinboro Univ.of Pa. Patricia taught art education for over 20 years at Celoron Primary School with SWCentral School System. She taught Young Peoples’ ART at Chautauqua Institution for 5 summer seasons. In 2000, she was selected as a Fullbright Teacher Program educator from NY State to visit Japan. She created an authentic Japanese art room when she returned for all her students k-3 at the Celoron School. She traveled to Korea to research illustrations for her children’s book, A HOME for KIM LEE, in 2001. She has studied Illustration and Writing of Children’s Books with Caldecott winner and author, Uri Shulevitz. Also with children’s book authors/ illustrators Dominick Catalano, Lindsay Barrett George, and Judy Schachner. She did all the photography and design for her late husband Gino’s cookbooks: NATURAL ITALIAN COOKING: ZUPPE, PASTA and PRANZI. At present, she works from her own studio, writing, painting and illustrating. She is looking forward to going MUSKY fishing and catching a big one from Chautauqua Lake. She hopes children and adults alike will enjoy MUSKIE MAGIC and thanks Melissa Uber at Quick Solutions with help publishing.

By Linda K. Yates Artist & Gardener The LUSH LIFE  is upon us!  In the gardens now are quiet spots for daydreaming, an abundance of new flowers in bloom everyday, and all of the personal luxuries that gardens have to offer us in mid July.  Gardening in outdoor spaces is recreation also meaning ‘re-creation’ or starting over or doing again. We are refreshing our senses to the entirely brand new summer season.  It’s our chance to start over, to enjoy it more, to do it better.  We have the time to make changes in our lifestyles, our yards, our porches and outdoor spaces. We can maybe take more care of what we are blessed to have. ‘Less is more’ is a good motto in our changing love starved separated world. We can make improvements in ourselves and in our own backyards. By being Stewards of the Earth or our neighborhoods or even our own personal territories we are contributing to the betterment of mankind.

Heat Wave in WNY

Day Trippin:

Tips to Keep it Cool

By Carol Fisher As I generally do, I set out to research what I could about these crazy temperatures we have been enduring over the last few weeks. I even went so far as to try to enlist the aid of Maria Genero from WGRZ Channel 2 News, but, alas, didn’t hear back from her. I guess she’s a busy gal with all the animal rights issues she is involved in. I learned that she became a vegetarian after she learned the truth about our food industry. Atta girl, Maria. That’s practicing what you preach. So, here’s what I found out that I could translate for you. The World Meteorological Organization is specific in its definition by stating that a heat wave is when the daily maximum temperature for more than five consecutive days exceeds the average maximum temperature by 9 degrees. (Canada says three.) So, a series of 95-degree days here in WNY might be considered a heat wave, while not so much in Death Valley, where those temps would be considered normal. Heat waves form when high pressure aloft, up to 25,000 feet, gains strength and hangs over a specific region for several days or weeks,

and then moves very slowly. Under this high pressure, the warm air sinks causing a highlevel inversion which acts as a lid or a dome, trapping high humidity warm air below it, thereby inhibiting convection, leading to a continual buildup of heat at the surface which we then experience as a heat wave. Perhaps some of you remember six years ago, in June-July 2012, when more than 8000 warm temperature records were broken or tied, many untouched since the Dust Bowl Days of the 1930’s. Hundreds of deaths occurred and cities everywhere reported heat buckled roads. Now that was HOT weather! It’s almost impossible to believe, but heat waves take more lives in the United States than do natural disasters like tornadoes, hurricanes, flooding and thunderstorms. But, what probably matters more than what makes a heat wave, is how to stay cool when the heat comes visiting again (this weekend – highs in the low 80’s). I’ve gathered together some solutions that might help you. Air conditioning always stands as the first line of defense. However, if you are in a non-air-conditioned place, use box fans and ceiling fans

(turned to summer mode) to promote air circulation. Always take advantage of the cooling power of water. Fill buckets or basins and soak your feet. Wet towels and bandannas can have a cooling effect when worn on the shoulders, neck or head. Take cool showers or baths, and consider using a spray bottle filled with  cold water for refreshing spritzes throughout the day. Head downstairs. A basement is a cool refuge from the midday heat. Eliminate extra sources of heat: turn odd incandescent light bulbs, computers, TV’s and appliances. Eat fresh foods that do not require cooking. Maintain an adequate level of hydration: you’ll need to consume more water than you usually do. Sweating  profusely? Replace electrolytes by eating a small amount of food with your water or by drinking speciallyformulated electrolyte replacement drinks. Thirst is the first sign of dehydration; drink sufficient amounts of fluids before you feel thirsty in order to prevent dehydration. Avoid alcoholic beverages and caffeine, as both act as diuretics and promote dehydration. For a homemade “air conditioning” system, sit in the path of a box fan that is aimed at an open cooler, or pan filled with ice. Visit public buildings with air conditioning:  Libraries, grocery stores, shopping malls, coffee shops, and movie theaters can all be good places to cool down. Don’t eat large, protein-rich meals that can increase metabolic heat and warm the body. Do be able See “HEAT” Right

Third Annual Enchanted Mountains Brew Fest, set for this Saturday July 14th at Olean’s Four Mile Brewing.

By Nicholas Pircio

The suds will be flowing and the camaraderie growing when you take in the Third Annual Enchanted Mountains Brew Fest, set for this Saturday July 14th at Olean’s Four Mile Brewing. Sample a variety of regional craft beers from 2-5pm, amid the company of fellow brew and music lovers. Jay Beattie, one of three partners at Four Mile Brewing, is excited about bringing the fun to his brewery along the banks of the Allegheny River. On hand will be twenty-plus brewing friends from across the Empire State. You buy your ticket, $40 at the door, and you get to sample all the different brews. “We’ll have


Cont. From Left to recognize the symptoms of heat-related illnesses and true heat emergencies (heat cramps, heat rash, heat exhaustion, heat stroke). Call

between 27 and 30 different either cideries, breweries or distilleries down here, take a sample cup, and go sample the beers for three hours.” Beattie says Four Mile is friends with all of the breweries taking part in the Brew Fest. “And we’re the first ones to really organize a beer festival in Olean, which is pretty neat, something the public can get into.” This marks the third Brew Fest hosted by Four Mile Brewing, and this year, the dates were changed to avoid conflict with the St. John’s Italian Festival and other events that may be going on downtown. The beer samples will be found outdoors in the Beer Garden, with the various brewers lined up under small

tents. Beattie says, “We’ll have a DJ playing, and after the beer festival we’ve got the Stick Tights playing from 5-9pm. We’ll be serving food out here; it’s a really neat thing for the community to experience, it’s fun!” Patrons will also find $10 designated driver tickets at the door. Breweries will be coming from Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Medina. You’ll also find some of the big national brands like Long Trail, Otter Creek, New Belgium, Magic Hat, and Genesee Brewing. Beattie says this is the biggest event of the year for Four Mile Brewing. Tickets should go fast. “There will be more product here than you can sample!”

emergency services (911) in the event of a heat emergency and try to cool the victim until help arrives. Keep a cautious eye on children and frail elderly. And, finally, remember that pets also suffer when the temperature rises. KEEP THEM OUT OF CARS! Cooling animals (dogs, rabbits, cats, gerbils)

by giving them a “cool” bath or shower will help keep their body temperature down. A cool towel on a tile floor to lay on, a cool towel or washcloth laying over the skin next to a fan will also help cool the animal. Make sure they have plenty of cool water to drink as well. EZPZ – Stay Cool!
