By Anna Hagley We all know Jamestown residents support their town and hold it close to their hearts. The Gebbie family’s dedication to the town incited an idea back in 1964 to start a long lasting unique resource for the town, creating The Gebbie Foundation that is currently involved in bringing local revitalization projects to fruition. The Gebbie Foundation was started by Geraldine Gebbie Bellinger and Marion Bertram Gebbie, sisters, who

passed the torch of responsibility down from generation to generation. According to, their mission has been, and still is, one of commitment to high ideals, personal integrity and compassion for others, while supporting a progressive, community-focused impact on Jamestown. Their historic mission statement is still the literary banner of their goals, stating “The Gebbie Foundation’s mission is to See “GEBBIE” Page 8

By Beverly A. Hazen A small museum that may well be the most unique in the County (and beyond) is in the Cassadaga lakeside community of Lily Dale, recognized as the home of “Spiritualism.” It is the place where mediums communicate with spirits of people who “have passed,” or in layman’s terms, “the dead.”

The Emporium is bursting with fabulous items of vintage clothing – dresses, suits, shoes, hats, gloves, you name it.

Publisher’s Word

Be a Part of the Best Little Paper this Side of Chautauqua County

 The Lakeside Ledger has received so much support since its inception just 5 months ago. We would like to take this space each week and introduce you to our team of writers.        I would like to next introduce Kathleen McCarthy. Kathleen is a woman of change and adventure. Having had many careers and interesting life experiences, she continues to explore and find new directions. She says, “My humble beginnings began in Orchard Park, where I had the good fortune of living three houses away from my maternal grandparents. With my neighborhood friends I explored the woods, the swamps, and the quaint village, as a young girl with a mission. At times the mission may have gotten me in trouble but learning by doing was the way to go. I nursed a baby bat with an eye dropper, took care of sick birds, and brought home kittens, dogs and snakes. I learned to bake pies with Nana and learned woodworking from Pa, who designed miniature tools for me. These skills took me exploring and living in many parts of the country. My beginning love of Chautauqua Lake was my time spent at Camp Newatah, now part of the Lutheran Camp. This was perfect, as I discovered fossils, water sports and nurturing relationships with counselors and made new friends. Special to me was Carol Ann Bemus, my counselor in the youngest “Peter Pan” cabins. Luckily my parents also fell in love

with the lake and purchased our first summer home in Maple Springs, NY. in 1958. The love of the area may have begun much earlier, as my paternal grandparents honeymooned at the Athenaeum Hotel in 1917. College took me to Central NY, University of Denver (access to my love of downhill skiing), University of Florida for the fine Education Department, Hunter College of the City of NY for a Masters in Education, and Boston University for a Masters in Social Work. My interest in helping others took me to teaching in the South Bronx, living in East Harlem, a year- long move to Vermont to raise chickens and my first child. Never one to sit back and let things happen to the underclass, I did community service, tutored and mentored in East Harlem and in Vermont. I taught Special Education, worked as a school counselor and school administrator. I advocated for food programs, day care programs and adequate housing and human rights. I worked in residential treatment programs, taught kids with social/emotional problems, had a private psychotherapy practice in Newton, MA and found time to continue the skiing passion in Maine and Vermont. Raising four kids, nurturing their interests of art, crew, horses and basketball kept me close to the action, sometimes wanting to jump right in. That came later! As my parents kept homes in Maple Springs I was lucky to come back to visit, my heart was always close

Did You Know:

by. Mom enriched my life with her love of literature and libraries. Dad made sure I shared his passion for antique cars, restoration projects and antique car shows in the states and in England. Fast forward, in 2007 my husband and I left the fast pace of Boston and Providence and made the bold move to Maple Springs. Having inherited our home when my Dad passed away has allowed us to step back and plan for our life on the lake. Discovering crew with the Chautauqua Lake Rowing Association has added to the “staying fit” and active theme! Reinventing ourselves, our careers have taken interesting, positive turns. I am thrilled to be writing for the Lakeside Ledger, following Mom’s foot-steps, as she had been the editor of the student newspaper at the University of Buffalo in 1938.”   The Lakeside Ledger is part of the Zimmer Media LLC Newspaper Group and is always looking for story ideas and writers. The Ledger is printed weekly and distributed on Thursdays to more than 400 locations in Chautauqua County (Lakewood, Celoron, Busti, Jamestown, Bemus, Mayville, Westfield and Fredonia). Our mission is to bring you the latest regarding area events, business news, interesting people and community happenings in an entertaining and informative weekly format.    We look forward to working with and for you!  Jeanine Zimmer Carlson, PublisherJeanine Zimmer Carlson, Publisher

Great Deals

Garage, Household & Estate Sales: Weekly Column By Donna Germain Did you know …? Are you looking for some great deals on some old stuff or even relatively new stuff? Need some nice bowls to bring your popular potato salad to the family picnic or reunion. Pick up a nice bowl for a buck or two. Well now is the time to check out the Garage, Household and Estate sales. Several neighborhoods hold street sales. Now with the internet

it is easy to see what the sales have to offer, especially the estate sales & household sales. You can find sales in the local newspaper or online. Household & estate sales not conducted by an individual will state they will hand out numbers at a certain time. Usually an hour before the sale starts. That is your place in line and allows for limited entry into the home so it is not overly crowed. So if you see something you like online, get there early to get your place in line. Most

Living Well Minute:

sales the first day are 100% of asking price, however you can leave a bid or speak to the person running the sale to negotiate a price. The second day is usually 30% off and the third day 40-50% off. This may vary from sale to sale and vendors. So if you are not looking to buy and want to have your own sale, you can contact a vendor or do it on your own. For more information on sales or to contact a vendor go to www. Now you know….

Shadow Rule

When Your Shadow Is Shorter than You , Take Cover!

Do you know the shadow rule? If your shadow is shorter than you, you should find shade. This is an easy reminder to limit sun exposure between 10am & 4pm, when the sun’s rays are the most intense. If you must be in the sun during this time, stay covered with a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, and a hat, and use sunscreen on exposed skin. Finally, don’t forget to wear sunglasses with 99-100% UV absorption to protect your eyes. Enjoy summer in Chautauqua County safely!

Grand Funk Railroad GFR Plays in Ellicottville July 2 for Ellicottville’s Summer Music Festival Grand Funk Railroad will perform at the Ellicottville Summer Festival on July 2 at 8 PM. Doors open at 7 PM. The Festival runs from June 30 through July 2, and takes place at the Holiday Inn Resort. The Holiday Inn is at 6557 Holiday Valley Road, in Ellicottville, NY. Admission ranges from $30 to $325 for VIP. For more information, please call 800-349-9099 or 716-699-2345. The website is event-calendar/summermusic-festival/. Formed in 1969, Grand Funk was born out of the

ashes of Terry Knight & The Pack, another band from Flint, Michigan. Currently the group includes original founding members Don Brewer (vocals and drums, writer and singer of the hit, “We’re An American Band”) and bassist Mel Schacher. Joining Don and Mel are true “ALL-STARS”-- Max Carl (38 Special, Jack Mack and the Heart Attack, Max Carl and Big Dance), lead guitarist Bruce Kulick (12 years with KISS and credits with Michael Bolton, Meatloaf and Billy Squier), and keyboardist Tim Cashion (Bob Seger and Robert Palmer).

Together, Brewer and Schacher have created a dynamic and multi-talented five piece band that will not only carry on the tradition of Grand Funk hits, but also has the potential to create a new chapter in the legacy of Grand Funk Railroad. With Grand Funk reforming in 2000, this new chapter in the band’s biography is being written daily. Both seasoned Grand Funk lovers and contemporary rock fans--discovering the group for the first time on CDs and VH-1-- will be able to see and hear firsthand that Grand Funk Railroad’s train is back on track.

Retail Produce Auction

CHQ Produce Auction makes Buying Local Foods Easier for Consumers

o g , , , , s l d , e , n 8 e Y l ; 0 1

By Emily Reynolds, Executive Director, e Cornell Cooperative e Extension of CHQ. County T n JAMESTOWN, Cornell , Cooperative Extension t of Chautauqua County’s e Agricultural Program is a excited to announce the that o the Chautauqua Produce e Auction is now featuring a g retail auction in addition to e their wholesale opportunities. r Cornell Cooperative h Extension provides technical s support to the Produce d Auction and its growers. s A new feature at this year’s r Chautauqua Produce Auction . is the addition of a retail n auction, to be held on Monday e evenings, which provide an k opportunity for consumers e to buy smaller quantities ” at retail prices.  Monday . Auctions begin at 5 pm, and . will continue through June with the potential to continue through the season based on

interest. The Chautauqua Produce Auction is located in Clymer at 7844 Route 474. The standard wholesale auctions are every Tuesday and Friday throughout the season, typically May through October, starting at 10am.   The new Monday events will still follow an auction format, but produce will be sold in smaller quantities. This will allow the general public to enjoy smaller quantities that will serve 1-2 people for preservation or consumption. For example, during these retail auctions the buyer who wins the bid may choose one, two or three plants rather than having to buy a whole lot of ten plants as they must do at the Tuesday and Friday wholesale auctions. The Produce Auction operates like a typical auction, but there are many people around to help a new buyer establish an account and learn about the bidding process. Examples

of what you might find at a Monday auction include hanging baskets, 4” pots of flowers, flats of flowers or vegetables, patio tomatoes, eggs, rhubarb, strawberries, baked goods, gardening supplies or planters. A small food stand is also available. There is adequate parking and loading docks available as well.   The wholesale auction has been an asset to our community since 2003, and offers fresh fruits and vegetables, plants, flowers, and other items that are sourced from local growers, primarily from Chautauqua County. They follow a strict food safety plan that is certified yearly and includes a traceability policy for all fruits and vegetables sold at the auction. You can learn more about the Chautauqua Produce Auction by contacting Nancy Westerberg at 716-499-6391 or   Chautauqua County is home to over 1,500 farms, and more than 100 are selling their products directly to consumers, through farm stores, roadside stands, the Chautauqua Produce Auction, and farmers markets.

Cont. From Cover China to a close-knit family. His father and uncle were chefs in China and Japan. He learned about cooking, spices, and ingredients at a young age. He carefully learned to prepare many various dishes by watching, then by doing. He travelled to Japan to work with his father in his restaurant there. As Calvin continued travelling to Thailand, Singapore and the United States, he learned more about flavors and spices as well as the combination of foods from different cultures. Calvin relocated to Seattle, Washington in 2012 where he ran an Asian Restaurant and continued to learn and create more dishes, drawing from the many cultures he had experienced. Being far from friends and family he decided to move to Brooklyn, New York. This exciting move and neighborhood inspired him to continue to create new dishes. As he had friends in this geographic area he and his wife began to consider a move to Western New York. When the opportunity presented itself he decided to buy the restaurant at 816 Foote Avenue in Jamestown. He brought a chef from Seattle and a Thai chef from Thailand. As he had trained in Japan, he is an expert in the preparation of Japanese dishes including Hibachi and Sushi. Asian Fusion is a term that has developed by chefs, as a combining or “fusing” of cultures with


Cont. From Cover Celoron hungry it would have been their own fault because in addition to the barbecued meat there was all types of other foods—there were fries, “bloomin” onions, cotton candy, funnel cakes, popcorn, candy apples and pizza along with all kinds of drinks for young and old alike. This all brings back faint memories of the historic amusement park of times a long time ago.   Rib cooking teams were Smoking Joe’s Hog Wild BBQ, Sgt Oink BBQ, My Happy Place, Pigfoot, and After Hours BBQ.  After all these an adult beverage garden was available with cold beer, malt beverages and a selection

different ingredients, spices, and sauces. Even the presentation of foods has varied and creative new ideas are appearing in restaurants throughout the world. Chefs around the globe found that there is combined power in bringing in flavors from different cultures. Calvin Wu has done a spectacular job as a young chef to combine so many aspects of what it great about Chinese, Japanese, and Thai ingredients and flavors. Every day he gets fresh deliveries of supplies, foods and spices, some from New York City. Thai basil is unique and flavorful, a taste different from regular basil. Curries from Thailand are very different from curries from India. Thai curry has a mild and different taste, not strong and pungent like Indian Curries. The food quality and presentation is spectacular. Artfully arranged with attractive garnishes make every dish picture perfect. Service is pleasant and professional. Staff is sure to check back to make sure you are satisfied or need anything additional. Authentic Japanese, Chinese and Thai dishes are all served with soup, salad, and rice. The salad dressing is homemade and tasty! Portions are just right, neither delicate nor oversized, perfect for the average diner. Calvin wants to please the customer and will cater to allergies, spiciness levels, or special requests. The restaurant serves beer, wine and sake. A vast variety of lunch specials are available. Having dined at Tokyo

& Beijing twice I have experienced the Thai and Sushi menu. I chose the Thai Special Dinner with soup, salad, and rice. Having lived in New York City and Boston I often ate out, Thai being my favorite. The Shrimp Pad Thai at Tokyo & Beijing was with a delicate, yet slightly spicy flavor. It was a delight to eat great Thai food in Jamestown. My friend had the Thai Green Curry with Shrimp (with soup, salad and rice), which was described as tasty, flavorful and with tasty shrimp. My next visit I had two sushi selections. I had the unique opportunity to have Calvin prepare the Golden Jamestown Roll, a deep fried sushi roll with crab, cream cheese with sweet chili sauce (I asked to leave the eel sauce out, not being very adventurous). I am not sure what was better, the roll or getting to watch him create it, with the freshest of ingredients. The sushi was the best I have ever had! Next I ordered the Rainbow Roll. As you can see in the photo, this was a work of art. It is a California roll wrapped with salmon, tuna, white fish and shrimp with avocado. I chose having it made with just shrimp but not the other fish. The special effect was the flashing cube placed on the plate, which alternated in different colors. The cooked shrimp was tender and fresh. I highly recommend this new restaurant. They are featuring 30% off your order until 12/31/16, eat in or take out. w w w . 716-708-6801

Cont. From Cover support appropriate charitable and humanitarian programs to improve the quality of life, primarily in Chautauqua County, by focusing on children/youth/education, arts, human services, and community development.” They function with an eight-member board of directors as well as a small staff of four. The Gebbie Foundation is making big waves in what they see as a Renaissance of Jamestown, currently supporting about a dozen local projects, and investing roughly $3 million a year into the Jamestown area on projects both large and small. Recent projects have included The Northwest Arena, transforming a historical block of Jamestown into an economic engine, in which 250 thousand people come through its doors each year. They are also involved in The National Comedy Center development, which is set to attract an additional 120 thousand people a year, further boosting economic growth. Additionally adding to Jamestown’s appeal, they contributed to developing 44 market rate apartments in the Wellman Building.


Cont. From Cover an internet entity – this article may introduce the company to many in the greater Chautauqua County community – is also on Amazon and Etsy. According to Susan, the company specializes in retail sales. However, the market for their product is growing as artificial flowers are used by landscapers and store displays used by such merchandisers as Ralph Lauren. Susan said that the company and product


Cont. From Cover Why is that, you might wonder? The Backstory Gallery and Emporium owner Mike Dykeman and his late partner Craig Young together amassed one of the largest collections of vintage clothing in the world, which became the go-to wardrobe resource for top film costume designers. No matter who you are, you have definitely already seen dozens -- if not hundreds -- of items from the Dykeman-Young collection. It provided wardrobe for period movies such as Casino, Titanic, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Seabiscuit, Pearl

Gregory J. Edwards, CEO of The Gebbie Foundation, spoke with the Lakeside Ledger about the aforementioned projects, and shared details of a current exciting plan. The Gebbie Foundation is providing funding for Jamestown Brewing Company to take over the Grants Department Store building on 3rd and Washington, converting it into a full service microbrewery, restaurant and banquet facility for up to 250 people. He was generous enough to give us a sneak peek of what to expect, sharing the rendering photo. The brewers are a father and son duo, inspired by the history of a pre-prohibition brewing company by the same name. G Patti Development will develop the building for Jamestown Brewing Company to occupy. This location is nestled near the The Northwest Arena, National Comedy Center and other social activity in the heart of the city. Their goal is to begin brewing beer by the end of the year. Seeing the streets of Jamestown being transformed into a onestop-shop for entertainment while still maintaining its classic charm is something The Gebbie Foundation is proud to be a part of, although they maintain a humble position, preferring to do their work in the background and allow the improvements to speak

for themselves. While being a nonprofit organization with a current focus on revitalization plans, they are unique in their ability to not only financially support projects, but also pair quality development agencies with the projects to transform visions into their best reality possible, having, for instance, connected the Jamestown Brewing Company with G Patti Development. Edwards likens their strategy of supporting successful projects to playing threedimensional chess, explaining that they strive to first create an environment optimized for a particular project, even if doing so takes years of initial investigation, research, studies and analyses. He mentions such examples as the Urban Design Plan that started a dozen years ago, as well as the AECOM Strategy. Much like one must create the groundwork and environment to call “check mate” in chess, The Gebbie Foundation understands the importance of doing so to ensure success for the projects in which they are involved. Edwards sums up this renaissance of sorts flawlessly, stating “the sidewalks no longer roll up at 6 o’clock in the evening in Jamestown.” To stay updated on all that the Gebbie Foundation has stirring, visit them at www.

Derek Milliman, operations director, has worked for Afloral for the past nine years. A Jamestown resident he graduated from Jamestown Business College. Milliman said that the company employs 13 full time, and has a large ware house space in Ohio and Florida office. Milliman also said that two popular flower providers are Silk Vision, a Chinese company and Real Touch Flowers, a Canadian

Company. Real Touch flowers seem to combine the both of two worlds, the longevity of artificial flowers with the feel of real flowers. He said that cascading bouquets are regaining popularity and calla lilies are replacing the formerly popular peony. Susan has developed a business which is growing 8-10% annually. She would say her successful, growing business is due to her “wonderful staff,” Milliman, who enjoys his work, would say that “Susan is an amazing person to work for, and there is no one who knows the business more than her.”

Harbor, The Producers, and a host of others. The collection’s vintage clothing also helped to create the iconic 1960s look for the television series, Mad Men. And for 15 years, that legendary – and massive -- collection was housed in Jamestown, in a 40,000 square-foot building on Jones-Gifford Ave. Dykeman says that Jamestown was meant to be just a temporary transition point when he and Young planned to move to Cooperstown after 20 years in Los Angeles. But business heated up so quickly after they got to Jamestown, they never had a moment to complete the move. So here they stayed. “I could run the business from the moon – if the

moon had shipping,” says Mike Dykeman. So for 15 years, shipping companies transported Dykeman-Young collection vintage clothing across the country. Once a piece had been used by a principal actor in a movie, it was tagged and archived, never to be used again. In 2009, the DykemanYoung collection was sold to Western Costume Company, the largest costume shop in America. It took nine 53-foot tractor trailers to transport the 50,000 pieces back to California, where it took Western Costume more than a year to organize and barcode every item.

a a n Cont. From Cover r y rThis museum is located in sthe former 1889 one-room mPomfret Schoolhouse #6 at ythe corner of Library and ,East Streets. Historian and nmuseum curator, Ron Nagy, Gencourages people to visit, whether they are believers in ySpiritualism or not. “There’s lsomething for everyone to -see,” Nagy said, “even if it is gjust the old things.” eOne of the displays presents dthe story of the Fox Cottage nin Hydesville, NY, and here’s fwhere one learns about the ,real beginning of Modern eSpiritualism. It is said that the sFox family moved into a house tin late 1847 that was reportedly s“haunted.” The mysterious .raps they experienced became esomewhat annoying until ttheir playful 9 and 11-year old ,daughters started exchanging nraps with the unseen guest. fThis led to “communicating” rvia raps corresponding to eletters of the alphabet and having the guest respond sto soundless hand motions, ,confirming that the guest could o“see.” The guest revealed that nhe, Charles Rosna, a pack ”peddler, was murdered in the thouse and his body buried sin the cellar. (It had been .noted that the pack peddler had suddenly disappeared.) This phenomenon caused quite a stir and drew attention sfrom outsiders, which then hled to the growth of Modern ySpiritualism. eYears later, in 1915, the d e d e Cont. From Page 8 a nd g Stepping up into the 2 floor Dykeman-Young Vintage d gEmporium is like stepping rinto another world. First-time ,visitors often say they can’t dbelieve they’re in Jamestown. gSomeplace that cool, that eunique, that original – it ecould hold its own in any city, anywhere. The first thing you notice is the clothing. s When Mike Dykeman sold 5the collection, he retained sownership of the archives – all gthe wardrobe items which had gbeen worn or used in a movie. eSo his Emporium is bursting awith fabulous items of vintage ,clothing – dresses, suits, shoes, ,hats, gloves, you name it. And each one is sprinkled with -stardust. It comes complete owith the “continuity tags” used ,by professional wardrobe staff, nnoting who wore it, the name tof the movie, and the actual tscenes it was worn in. Talk oabout a unique, customized kgift item – maybe a Matt nDamon fan who is also a egolfer would want the shirt he wore in The Legend of Bagger Vance. And there are dozens more to choose from and the items are constantly changing. The Second Thing You Notice Is Everything Else


Cottage was transported in sections and reassembled in Lily Dale, already a gathering place for Spiritualists, Liberals and Free Thinkers. Spiritualists from around the world visited the Cottage until it burned down in 1955. On display is the peddler’s trunk, a family Bible and a charred board from the Cottage. March 31, 1848, the day contact was made with Rosna’s spirit, is considered the beginning of Modern American Spiritualism. Many photographs of mediums and of the community’s history cover the museum walls. A significant foyer display is devoted to Susan B. Anthony, leader of the Woman’s Suffrage movement. While this may seem “out of place” at Lily Dale, the truth is that Susan B. Anthony was a frequent visitor. Lily Dale grew in popularity and prestige with Anthony in attendance, as thousands arrived by train during the rise of the Woman’s Suffrage movement. In honor of the Centennial Anniversary of a woman’s right to vote in N.Y. State, Lily Dale is celebrating “Woman’s Day” on August 27 with reenactment of celebrations from its early days. A strong connection with the American Indian is evident at Lily Dale. “The American Indian honored their ancestors,” Nagy said. “They talked with them and when they buried them, they elevated them. They didn’t throw them in a box. They lived simple, natural lives.”

Many of the Spiritualists in the early 1900’s chose Indians as their Spirit Guides. There are Spirit Paintings, including the portrait pastel painting “Unity,” and its original glass cover showing paint residue, which appears to be deepening in color as time passes. A basket of silverware sits unobtrusively on display, but the spoons are distorted and twisted, tangible examples of the power of mind over matter. Nagy will teach a Spoon Bending Party Workshop this summer. “I don’t demonstrate; participants bend the spoons. I have fun,” he said. A “Spirit Photography” notebook sits on a counter. It’s a collection of photographs Nagy regards noteworthy, many revealing a sphere or circle, called a Spiritual “Orb.” “That is an anomaly,” Nagy said. “Phenomena happen, but you can’t make it happen. You never know,” he said. Also shown are photographs of children (deceased), held in place by a concealed mother or propped up by a wooden support, the deceased posing for a last photograph with siblings. Expect the unexpected at Lily Dale! All are welcome. Museum hours: Saturdays 11 am – 2 pm until June 24 (free); Daily 11 am – 4 pm during season (Fri., June 30 – Sun., September 3 - $15 Gate Fee). Saturdays September 11 am – 2 pm until third week of October (free). Lily Dale Assembly Workshop Program lists summer schedule. (716)595-8721.

Mike Dykeman and Craig Young didn’t just collect vintage clothing. They collected vintage everything. They traveled all over the country, exploring the small towns of America, and shopping, shopping, shopping all the while. You’ll be awed by the selection of vintage pottery, jewelry, purses, scarves, glassware, and shelves and shelves of vintage textiles, including table linens, drapes, blankets, fabric yardage, and more. Vintage hand-painted skirts (and lots of other vintage clothing that isn’t from the movies.) Walking sticks. Tiles. Sunglasses. Samplers and quilts. More vintage representations of the American West than you ever thought existed, from beaded belts to cowboy boots to a Hopalong Cassidy lunch box – “the very first character lunchbox” says Dykeman. A room devoted to vintage kitchen wares. Lots and lots of Jamestown memorabilia – from photographs and postcards to programs and advertising to actual packaging from long-gone, old Jamestown stores. It all really has to be seen to be believed. Best of all, every single thing in the store is in perfect or near perfect condition.

Mike Dykeman says he took his time choosing the items he collected, “If you’re going to put your money into something, you might as well buy the best.” But rest assured, he was a very smart shopper and you’ll be impressed by how reasonable his prices are. One Flight Up: The Gallery On the 3rd floor, the Dykeman-Young Gallery is features regularly changing art exhibits in two airy, bright, high-ceilinged galleries. Right now, in Gallery 1, the photography show “Exposure 2” features the work of 8 local photographers whose assignment was to present a positive image of Jamestown. In Gallery 2, “Atom Age Art” features the work of Arkansas artist Dale Hogeland, whose abstract, retro compositions look like something that might have been hanging on the walls in the offices of Mad Men. The Dykeman-Young Galley and Vintage Emporium, 100 E 2nd St., Jamestown, (716-483-5772) is open from 1 pm until 7 pm, Tuesday through Saturday.

Day Trippin’:

Penn Shore Winery

Penn Shore Winery and Vineyards, North East PA.

By Lou Drago Penn Shore Winery is the oldest continuously operating family farm winery in PA. The Commonwealth first approved farm wineries in 1960. The #1 token was issued to a Harrisburg area farm, but that winery never opened. The Penn Shore Winery first opened for business in 1968 and operated under the #2 medallion. The current ownership of PSV is the true definition of family farm. Jeff Ore spent 20 years working for BF Goodrich. After relocating his family seven times in that 20 years he and his wife Cheryl decided it was time to set down more permanent roots. Those roots included fulfilling a lifelong dream of owning a winery. In 2004, Jeff visited the owners of Penn Shore who were ready to retire, a deal was struck and the Ore family became the proud owners of the #2 medallion. Jeff and Cheryl are joined in the business by their 3 children. In the past 13 years the Ore family has witnessed a growth spurt both in their personal business and in the Erie wineries. When they started in 2004 there were just five winemakers in North East. There are now 11 wine makers in North East PA area. The Lake Erie Wine trail stretches

from Erie PA to Dunkirk NY and has 24 family wineries. Each winery has a unique story. The Penn Shore wines have transitioned from just four sweeter styled wines to now over 25 varieties with a range from the sweet Concord base to drier more complex reds and whites. In the beginning, Jeff nearly stopped producing the sweet wines but the original four wines have remained popular with their loyal customer base. Originally, the local grape farmers grew sweet Concord grapes for Welch’s, but the Welch Grape business changed and less Concord grapes were needed. To survive the grape farmer experimented and found the soil and climate conditions ideal for a greater variety of grapes. From what at one time was nearly 100% sweet Concord grape growers to the farms today which offer over 30 varieties of wine grapes. As the grape varieties expanded so did the North East wine businesses. The Penn Shore wines are 100% PA grapes with nearly all purchased from the immediate area farms. As their farms experiment with new variety and a stable supply becomes available the wineries add new vintages and PSV is no different. Lambruscano is the Penn Shore oldest wine and one of its best sellers. It is blend of the sweet Concord grape that our area was once best known for and, as Jeff says with a twinkle in his eye, a secret French grape. The wine starts out rather sweet, almost too sweet for me, but as it warms on your palate the flavors mellows and the finish made this a wine to look forward to having a full glass at home.

Bianca is a semi dry white wine, look for the nice citrusy nose and berry fruit flavor on the tongue. Their Burgundy is a hearty dry red, a little thin compared to some Burgundies but the strong aroma, and the nice grapey finish made this a good tasting glass. Penn Shore makes a nice assortment of dry Vintage (single grape variety) wines. Their Merlot is a very smooth very drinkable medium bodied dry red. The wine sets on the tongue and has that slight back bite I expect in a Merlot. Noiret is a dry red that starts with a peppery profile and finishes with an oaky flavor. This is a flavorful Noiret that will pair well with barbequed meats. Another dry red was the Cabernet Sauvignon which was mellow, fruity oak barrel aged wine. Baco Noir is a dry red French hybrid grape. The wine is oak aged which imparts an earthy flavor. Chancellor is another dry red made from French grapes without the oak aging the fruity flavor was light. As we said before we like trying various Reislings. Penn Shore’s Reflections of Lake Erie is had a slightly tart, great peachy nose and great flavor on the tongue. This was a very nice semi dry Reisling, definitely a bottle to take home. Seyval Blanc is dry, crisp white wine with slight citrusy finish. This wine would be great served chilled on a hot summery night. I enjoyed my visit with the Ore Family and their style of wine making. Some nice warm Saturday afternoon I recommend you visit Penn Shore Wine at 10225 East Lake Road North East PA. I think you will agree it was worth the short drive.

Garden Girl: Loving

What a Great Time of Year!

By Linda K. Yates Artist & Gardener   I’m trying to find ways to stretch out the best of this wonderful month of June. I’m so excited about everything to the point that I find it hard to decide what to do next and what to focus on. It’s literally hit or miss. If I don’t do things as I see them they won’t get done. I’ve been attempting to keep up with the weeding but I also have been trying to get the plants that I winter over in my sunroom back outside to use in the hanging moss porch planters and into the urns and other outdoor containers in various garden spots.  I suppose I spend too much time trying to decide what combos to use or what goes where but I try to be creative about it and I am far too fussy for certain. I tell myself every spring that I have enough plants and I do try to reuse them as long as I possibly can but I cannot resist looking in every local greenhouse and nursery for something new and exciting and special. It takes time to get everything in it’s proper spot and I labor over the details. I’m close to having everything set at least in that category. The gardens on the other hand are always in a state of progression because like women’s work, they are never done.     But what a great time of the year June is for all of this


Practical Intuitive:

Treat Yourself as You Would Your Best Friend

Vicki Wagoner The Practical Intuitive

outdoor activity and splendor! I can’t get enough of it nor get over it. I am going to drag it out. I am not going to say ‘time is flying’. I am going to get up early and stay up late. I’m going to walk outside first thing in the morning barefooted and sneak in an after supper walk in the evening. There is so much to see it’s incredible! I am endlessly impressed by Mother Nature.   I can’t begin to describe the beauty of the June gardens to give it the merit it deserves. It’s best to be seen in person. But here goes a quick overview of the grandeur. The fantastic Foxgloves are the highlight right now. It’s the flower that grows on me more every year. I love their height, colors, their easy care and I keep moving them into as many places as I possibly can. There is a major grove where they seem to prosper so I use that spot as the main Foxglove

nursery and move them out from there. They are fantastic against the edge of the woods but also are looking marvelous in a new spot this year. It makes gardening even more fun to have new surprises. They are really the charmers in a cottage setting.    The peonies are fabulous this year also. They are nearing their peak performance now so I am inviting people over to see them as much as possible. I have the windows open tonight and can smell them now. It’s a very distinct and wonderful fragrance. The air has been so full of heavenly scents lately. The Dames rockets,  Mock Orange shrubs, Beauty bushes, Locust trees, wild Roses and the freshly mown grass fill the air. I’m going to enjoy every minute of this month of June to savor into the rest of the year. It’s my favorite! I hope you are feeling it too. Cheers!   

Best Friend

Best friends are such a treasure. We often treat them better than we do ourselves. We support, encourage, believe in and would do just about anything for our best friend. The question is, why do we sometimes treat ourselves with less respect and importance? Some of us were taught that taking care of their own needs first was rude and selfish. Others feared being perceived as self-absorbed or arrogant. These beliefs often came with a cost. We neglect, ignore and even minimize ourselves for the sake of others, including our own best friend. I work with many clients that seek attention, affection and love from someone else, including their best friend. It is a scientific and spiritual fact that what goes around comes around. To have a loving, respectful relationship with someone else, one needs to have the same relationship with themselves. Since you learned how to treat others better than yourself, the good news is that you can teach yourself how to reverse that false belief. It starts by making a commitment to treat

yourself the same way you do others. With consistency and honesty, being compassionate, respectful, patient and understanding of yourself, you’ll soon become your own best friend. Before you know it, your self-compassion, selfrespect and self-love will grow and you are feeling great about yourself! How do you become your own best friend? Here are some ideas to start the process. • Be honest about how you treat yourself. Are you as kind, loving and supportive to yourself as you are to your own best friend? If so, good for you! Or, are you your own worst critic? Degrading, demoralizing, minimizing who you truly are? • It’s important to be aware of your inner self-talk. Do you tell yourself “I’m stupid, ugly, lazy”? Or, “I’m intelligent, beautiful, ambitious”? Whatever you focus on and repeat you begin to believe. • We are all good at something. Maybe you are a good listener; organizer; gardener; or crafter. Whatever it is, recognize it, compliment yourself and feel proud. • Appreciate and celebrate your little accomplishments which all add up to appreciate what it took to celebrate the larger ones. • Pursue your own dreams and passions just like you would encourage your best friend to do. • Set boundaries around your personal and work relationships, remembering you are just as important as they are. • Every day you make sure

you charge up your cell phone. Make sure you remember to prioritize your schedule to take some time to recharge yourself. • We all make mistakes, or, choices, as I prefer to call them. Be kind with yourself by being forgiving of yourself, having gratitude for the lesson learned and having the wisdom to focus on moving onward. • Occasionally, treat yourself to something special because you deserve it - a fancy dinner; a sparkly bauble; an ice cream cone. • Periodically take a vacation from all your responsibilities - turn off your phone, unplug the tv, pull down the blinds and spend time with yourself. Believe me, the Universe will still be revolving without your assistance for a short time! • Use daily reminders that you are your own best friend. It can be a sticky note on the bathroom mirror; a reminder on your phone; an inspirational quote on your screen saver; or, an uplifting newsletter in your inbox. • Over twenty years ago, I made the commitment to be my own best friend. To ensure that I would remember to be compassionate, patient, respectful and loving to myself as I am with others, I bought a simple gold band that I wear on top of my wedding ring. A constant reminder that whatever goes around will come around because it starts with me. Are you willing to challenge yourself to change how you think and feel about yourself?

Bones of Steel: Osteoporosis

Spatial planning - part two

Females Over the Age of 50 Developing Brittle and Fragile Bones

Spatial planning is taking existing space and reworking

By Maria P. Perron, ASID it to achieve a result fitting the needs of the homeowner. Vintage House Design Inc In part one of “What is Spatial Planning”, we made a big deal about having a solid plan that addresses all your interior needs; ensuring everything you need is in place before hiring a contractor. We discussed some of the benefits of hiring a professional to develop your plan and the cost savings realized by doing so. Here are more benefits when you allow a professional to stand by your side through the process with clear plans that achieve your personal goals. Priorities In developing a good plan, it is best to design the complete project, not simply what you need done now and what you see happening down the road. The plan becomes your SOP, your blueprint for renovation and revitalizing your interiors in total. From that plan, a professional can assist in prioritizing how the project is completed; which area(s) should be undertaken first and which parts of the project could easily be completed at a later date. Working in phases is smart for any budget and alleviates the stress of doing everything at the same

time. The added benefit..... your plan is complete. It’s on paper, drawn to your needs. It doesn’t have to change. Yes, it can, but you shouldn’t have to reinvent the wheel. Aging-In-Place Not to bring up a sore subject, but we’re all getting older. Not only that, we all have personal, physical issues that plague us from time to time. A professional can help you determine how your plan can benefit you for years to come; adding in those factors that affect you now or may affect you later. In this way, your interiors become a respite allowing you to remain in your home, be safe and function at your physical best. Product Selection It is crucial to engage in conversation regarding products as they can make/ break your finished result. There are basic guidelines and good/better/best choices that affect your budget. A professional can develop scenarios allowing you to make intelligent decisions. With the ability to shop on line, there are more choices than ever that mostly create confusion. Most of us like

to see/feel/touch a product before we invest. We also appreciate others’ feedback on how the products work and how they may have benefitted the user. Your designer has purchased from many manufacturers and may prefer to work with certain companies due to how the product is built, how it performs over time and company policies and warranties. They can also verify information such as return or exchange policies. Some manufacturers offer trade pricing that allows designers to share that break with you which means you will generally end up paying less than retail. Working with your designer will ensure your finished product looks and feels the way you intend; assisting with furniture size, window treatments, layouts and much more. Cost Savings and Efficiency A designer’s focus is not to spend all the money you have, but rather to develop an interior plan in a manner that creates a beautiful, cohesive finish. A professional will seek See “DESIGN”



Osteoporosis is a “hot” topic if you are a female over the age of 50. Osteoporosis is defined as a medical condition in which the bones become brittle and fragile from loss of tissue, typically as a result of hormonal changes, or a deficiency of calcium or vitamin D. The current medical tests compare your bone density to a 25 year old when bone loss occurs naturally as we age. Fosamax is a drug that is regularly prescribed for osteoporosis. This drug is a metabolic poison that kills osteoclasts which are cells that remove unhealthy bone from your body. It is well documented that Fosamax

will increase bone density but what you are not being told is that 4 years later, the bone actually becomes weaker even though it is more dense. This is because bone is a dynamic structure that requires removal and replacement of bone to stay strong and this drug does not build any new bone! Osteoporosis can be helped with diet, lifestyle and the correct nutritional supplements. The most important nutrients are calcium, magnesium, zinc, boron, copper, manganese, silica, vitamin D, vitamin K, vitamin B complex, vitamin C and CoQ10. The best way to get adequate amounts in your diet is to eat whole

unprocessed foods. Some of the best foods include: dark leafy greens, fruit, raw almonds and nuts, wild caught salmon, avocado’s, full-fat plain yogurt and dairy products and grassfed organic meats. Also, weight bearing exercise and adequate sunlight are extremely important for strong bones. As for taking supplements, whole food supplements are best. If you are concerned about osteoporosis, we can help you with a comprehensive program designed to improve your overall health.

The event raised over $8,000 for the Rowing Association with 59 donated baskets/gift certificates for a raffle and 16 donated items for the Silent Auction. The money will go towards new equipment. The goal is to fund a new boat

The Chautauqua Golf Club announces that their 31st Annual Pro-Am Charity Golf Tournament will be held on Monday, June 26th. The event will have an 11 :00 AM shotgun start and a two best ball format. All proceeds will benefit the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy, as they continue their efforts to improve the health and vitality of Chautauqua Lake and its surrounding watershed.  The “Score One for the Lake!” tournament welcomes both male and female amateurs playing Chautauqua Golf Club’s Lake Course. Each foursome will include a visiting PGA professional from the Western New York and Northwestern Pennsylvania areas, making for an exciting day of golf.  Lunch will be served on the course, and the event will

conclude with an awards dinner at the club’s Double Eagle banquet facility. Various opportunities to sponsor the event are available and may be tax deductible.    The event serves as a major fundraiser for the Conservancy, with proceeds from prior year tournaments supporting vital pollution prevention, watershed education and land conservation projects and programs. The conservation of wetlands at Whitney Bay and Whitney Point and facilitating lakeshore buffers and stream erosion control projects are examples of recent projects assisted by this tournament. Pro-Am Chairman Bill Locke stated, “The CWC Pro-Am tournament funds activities which address the root causes of the pollution that fuels plant and algae growth in our lake.

These activities include watershed conservation projects and conserving the important habitats that provide clean water to the streams and lakes of our Chautauqua region. The Conservancy works with landowners to enhance shoreline habitats, control soil erosion, re-establish healthy vegetated buffer strips along streams and reduce nutrients entering our waterways from lawn care and other related activities.  Stopping these problems at their source is essential to a healthy lake. Maintaining a healthy, enjoyable lake is essential to our economy and benefits all area businesses and residents.”  More information is available at the CWC’s web site at www. or by calling the CWC at 716664-2166 or the CGC at 716357-6211.  Area businesses are especially encouraged to sponsor this event.  Photo caption: The Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy will be the beneficiary of the Chautauqua Golf Club’s 31st Annual PGA Pro-Am Golf Tournament.  Pictured from left are event chairman Bill Locke, PGA Professional Troy Moss, CWC Board Director Dr. Jeanne Wiebenga and CWC Executive Director John Jablonski III.
