The New York State law has taken many safety issues into account and has placed many regulations to ensure safety of passengers.

Story by John Thomas Staff Writer Starting around June 29 the two most prominent ride-sharing companies in the country will offer their services to residents of Western New York. Rideshare pioneers Uber and Lyft will start rolling out their business model, first in Buffalo and then throughout the Southern Tier. The law allowing ride-sharing is part of the Governor’s 2017-18 budget. Since 2011 ridesharing services had only been allowed in New York City and some parts of Long Island, but the new bill will open service in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Albany, and the rest of Long Island. “Extending ride sharing across New York is a matter of fairness that brings new transportation options and – with it – new economic opportunity and

innovation,” Governor Cuomo said.  “This framework provides for a fair, safe and compressive ride sharing system that will benefit communities in every corner of this state.” The plan had met with opposition from the Upstate Transportation Association; a coalition of cab companies and coach services. They claimed the ride-sharing companies do not do enough to assure the safety of the customers. Another concern was so-called surge pricing; that is drivers who raise their prices during holidays and special events. There have been allegations of price gouging. The New York State law seems to have taken these issues and more into account. Drivers must be at least 19 years old and able to See “UBER” Page 8

The Martin House and Graycliff come together in celebrating the anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wright’s birth.

By Kathleen McCarthy Throughout his long and prolific career, Frank Lloyd Wright brought American architecture to the spotlight. He created designs that were strongly influenced by the natural world, setting homes in the position to flow with nature, almost blending in, to create a peaceful and imaginative setting. Some of his most iconic structures are the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (1959) in New York and Fallingwater (1935) in Mill Run, Pennsylvania. He designed more than 1,000 structures, 532 of which were completed. Many

homes are privately owned, only accessible if occasional tours are offered. Other structures remain as non-profit organizations that offer tours and special events. FLW was born on June 8, 1867 and died on April 9, 1959. Wright was recognized in 1991 by the American Institute of Architects as the “greatest American Architect of all time”. Buffalo boasts seven of Frank Lloyd Wright’s legendary masterworks. Buffalo was a thriving industrial hub at the turn of the 20th century, known as a See “ARCHITECTURE” Page 8

By Mary Seger Question: What do roseate spoonbills, the Native American Music Awards, and a Guatemalan cloth fair have in common? Answer: They all caught the eye of photographer Lee Stein and are featured in an eclectic collection of photos on display until the end of June in the Lakewood Memorial Library’s Gallery Room.

Lee Stein is an artist who creates photographic compositions that are mesmerizing studies of color, light and texture. His world view is flexible: It can narrow to focus on tiny water drops glistening on a tropical flower or expand to capture a spectacular panorama of a desert canyon at sunset.

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 Linda Katherine Yates. Linda is a self described Artist, Gardener and Writer as well as a Naturalist and Environmentalist. She adores all Animals, Nature and the beauty of the Earth. Linda has a weekly column in the Ledger where she reflects on her beautiful garden and illustrates her paintings as well as her photography. Linda writes:    “I was born in Jamestown New York in January of 1950 in the same hospital as Lucille Ball. After the first grade in Celeron, New York my Father Phillip D. Yates moved our family of ten children to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. My exposure to the Carnegie Museum, the Frick Museum of Natural History and the Phipps Conservatory at that young age was a wonderful learning experience that affected my whole life. In the fifth grade my family then moved out to the suburbs and I grew up there in a semi-rural

country setting. After high school I transplanted myself to Cape Cod Massachusetts to work and play and I further discovered my life long passion with Art. After 10 years out of high school I finally began my college education at Cape Cod Community College in West Barnstable Massachusetts. I remained in the Cape Cod area for eight enlightening wonderful, though rather harsh, years. In 1980 I finally left the Cape in search of a warmer climate and applied to the University of South Florida. I returned to Chautauqua Lake for a summer of Art courses at the Chautauqua Institution before my departure to New College in Sarasota Florida. I studied Fine Arts and received a Bachelors degree with high honors. After my graduation I continued to live in Sarasota and was employed and lived on the beautiful barrier Island of Longboat Key. My life was a dream and all of these wonderful locations contributed to my lifelong Art career. In 1987 I returned here to Greenhurst New York to help manage the family owned Sheldon Hall Bed and Breakfast, a historic summer home on Chautauqua

Renting Boats

Several Places to Rent Boats, Kayaks and Jet Skis Weekly Column By Donna Germain Did you know…? There are more than 7,500 lakes, ponds and reservoirs in New York State and over 70,000 miles of rivers and streams. Did you ever wish you had a boat or jet ski to enjoy the summer season here on beautiful Chautauqua Lake? Maybe not, just want to go fishing, kayaking or canoeing. Well there are several places on the lake to rent power boats, pontoon boats, kayaks, and jet skis. There are several marinas that rent boats around

the lake. Renting a boat is not like renting a helicopter. You really do not need a lot of experience or any for that matter to rent a boat. However you must have valid driver’s license and be at least 18 years of age. If you are under 18 and provide a valid boaters safety certificate law states you can rent a boat. Most rental places require you to be 18 despite the NYS law. . Now if you decide to purchase a boat or drive a boat on the lake that is not a rental you must also have a NYS boater’s certificate. Want to fish on the lake? If you are over 16 you will need to

Did you know that women with health insurance in NYS can now get mammograms covered with no cost-sharing? This means that you do not have to pay any out-of-pocket costs for breast cancer screening and diagnostic imaging, and insurers cannot apply the services against annual deductibles or charge patients a co-payment or coinsurance. Important: no cost-sharing applies ONLY when services are delivered by a provider in your health plan’s network. Services may not be covered at all if delivered by a provider outside of your health plan’s network. Check with your insurance company and your doctor for more information, and get screened!

The Jamestown Kiwanis Club is sponsoring an AMBA Wellness Program on Saturday, June 10, 2017 at the Immanuel Lutheran Church at 556 East Second Street from 6-10am. The AMBA Wellness Program includes blood tests for Coronary Disease, Kidney Disease, Anemia, Liver Disease, Diabetes and other types of diseases. The cost for the full AMBA panel, including the Kiwanis sponsorship fee, is $48.00. The following optional tests are also available for an additional fee and require

a separate script from a physician: Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA), TSH, Vitamin D - 25, Hemoglobin A1C and Insure Colon Rectal Kit. Kiwanis President Wendy Wilcox stated, “With the changes in health insurance, many people find themselves with high deductibles to be met before any services are covered. While this has been a valuable program for many years, it is even more so now, as those unable or unwilling to spend hundreds of dollars for routine testing can still get the screenings

needed to maintain their health.” Anyone interested in participating should contact their physician for permission to have the test results sent to their office. For further information or to schedule an appointment call 1-800-234-8888 by June 8th. Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. New members are always welcome.

Heather Zimba Receives Audubon Comm. Nature Center Scholarship

Jamestown, New York, resident Heather Zimba is the 2017 recipient of Audubon Community Nature Center’s Ryan Exline Memorial Scholarship. She is pictured on the right receiving her scholarship check from Audubon Senior Naturalist Sarah Hatfield.

Jamestown, NY – Audubon Community Nature Center awarded its 2017 Ryan Exline Memorial Scholarship to Heather Zimba of Jamestown, New York. Every spring since 2003 Audubon’s Education Staff has raised scholarship funds through their Fledgling Birdathon. Participants look for as many species as possible over a 24-hour period, and generous supporters pledge an amount, either per species or in total. The end result is a $500 scholarship. This scholarship is named in memory of one of its very first recipients. Ryan Exline

was an integral part of the Audubon family for many years, where he assisted with gardening, eagle care, live animal care, and educational programs. A resident of Russell, Pennsylvania, he was pursuing a master’s degree at Duke University when he died in a car accident. His love of nature and of nurturing future generations of “nature nerds” lives on through this scholarship. Scholarship applicants must be local residents pursuing a degree in the natural sciences. Recipients must be passionate about the natural world. Heather Zimba has been

accepted into the Wildlife Biology Bachelor Program at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry for the fall of 2017. While at Jamestown Community College she was active in the Earth Awareness Club, volunteered for Frog Watch USA and Hemlock Woolly Adelgid monitoring, and had an internship last summer at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute. Previous scholarship winners are Taylor West, Brandon Allen, Connor Clendenen, Allison Cramer, Alex Kulakowski, Elyse Johnson, Brenton Maille, Alyssa D’Alessandro, Alexa Vazquez, Tricia Bergstue, Karen Eckstrom, Bill Langworthy, Rex Everett, Ryan Exline, and Eve Gaus. 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.

Recently Dan and Shauna Anderson and a small group of friends gathered at their small farm on Mahanna Road in Bemus Point for Shearing Day. This annual event occurs each May at Alpacaville, as the Anderson’s continue a tradition that was started many years ago by their friend Evelyn Brumwell, a now-retired Alpaca farmer who currently lives in West Virginia. Ms. Brumwell is the connecting link between the Anderson, Eichelberger and Lynch families, who all became involved with raising Alpaca through her farm in Dewittville, NY. Shearing day is not only a time for them to get together

for the necessary task of taking care of their respective herds, but it is also an opportunity for them to share their common interest and a community meal once the hard work is done. Although the social aspect of shearing day is fun and friendly, the actual process requires a strong team that is ready to work hard. The Anderson’s contract with Alley Pac, a shearing service based in Fort Collins, Co., to come for the day and do the shearing, with the assistance of the Andersons and their friends. The Shearing Day event at Alpacaville this year included 18 animals. The entire process took about 3.5 hours, with

the help of their small crew. When all the animals were finished, the workers gathered on the deck of the Anderson’s home to take a much-needed break and enjoy the pot-luck meal. The Anderson’s “Alpacaville” is open to the public Thursdays from 5-8pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 2-5pm.

Ice Cream Cont. From Cover

at One Ice Cream Drive, Dunkirk, NY? The William Wells family opened the first Dunkirk Ice Cream plant in 1914. Although the company has changed hands and names over the past 100 years, ice cream and Dunkirk have remained synonymous. In December 2010, the company was acquired by Arbor Investments. Today operating under the Fieldbrook Foods banner the company has continued the Wells Family tradition of producing quality frozen products from their three manufacturing facilities, a 234,000 square foot facility located in Dunkirk, a 40,000 square foot facility located in Lakewood, New Jersey and a 25,000 square foot facility in Gloversville, New York. Fieldbrook Foods boasts of being the largest manufacturer of private label ice cream and novelty products, which include ice cream cups, cones and frozen items on a stick, east of the Mississippi. What is a private label manufacturer and what do they do? The Ledger had a nice chat with President and CEO Bob Charleston who answered those questions and more. Well, a private label manufacturer makes products, i.e. ice cream, for other companies. And in Fieldbrook’s case, that means lots and lots of ice cream and ice cream novelty products. In 2016, Fieldbrook produced 900,000,000 Novelty ice cream pieces and 15 million gallons of ice cream in just their Dunkirk NY plant. They

Doug Conroe, Executive Director of the CLAintroduced the speakers to the audience. Sue O’Reilly, Science & Data Manager, Adirondack Watershed Institute, presented the cooperative data collection effort between the CLA and the Adirondack Watershed Institute Stewardship Program. This partnership offers data support services to share acquired knowledge and expand collaboration of invasive species collection across New York State. As there are new invasive species, the research and sharing of information is essential for all lakes in the state. Last year the CLA initiated a boat stewardship program on Chautauqua Lake. “Stop aquatic hitchhikers, prevent the transport of nuisance species. Clean all recreational equipment.” is the slogan the CLA is using. O’Reilly shared that the “2016 inspection of 3,217 boats on our lake, 49 aquatic species were intercepted before boats hit the water on Chautauqua Lake.” As boaters come from many states, lakes and locations, the prevention of the spread of invasive species is key. The boats need to be decontaminated with a specific process. www. is a site with further useful information. As Chautauqua Lake has many

are a leading US ice cream producer and they offer a comprehensive portfolio of value and premium quality frozen novelty and ice cream products. With it’s flexible and comprehensive production capabilities, Fieldbrook is an ideal private label and co-packing partner to retailers, contract manufacturing customers and food service operators. The Company is uniquely equipped to provide a complete offering of products. They are one of the largest manufacturers of private label ice cream cartons and novelty items for some of the largest names in the grocery business that we are all familiar with such as Kroger, Aldi’s, and Save-a-Lot. They are also one of the largest third party contract manufacturers of specialty ice cream products for several nationally known companies. Fieldbrook is widely recognized for it’s commitment to unparalleled and responsive customer service, reinforcing customer loyalty and strengthening its position as a category leader. The Company’s frozen stick novelty products include Fudge Bars and Pops, Ice Cream Bars, Toffee Bars, Crispy Bars, Fruit Bars, Ice and Juice Pops, Cream Bars and Pops, Sorbet Bars, Eclair Bars, Pudding Pops and more. They make a vast variety of ice cream sandwiches from the traditional chocolate wafer and vanilla ice cream inside we all know to all kinds of cookies and ice cream combinations. They also make a number of ready to eat ice cream cones. Fieldbrook has become one of the largest employers in the Dunkirk area. They had

planned to add 100 workers in the summer of 2016, but demand took off and instead they hired an additional 100 or 200 total new workers that summer. This brought their Dunkirk full time employment to around 600. Their touch in the local economy can be felt not only through their direct employees but also their suppliers. One of the main ingredients in ice cream is cream. Fieldbrook purchases millions of gallons of their cream products from the local New York dairy farmers and in a way their success has helped maintain many of the local farmers. To insure the quality of their product, fresh cream is delivered daily and used immediately in that day’s production. Fieldbrook continues to invest in constantly improving efficiencies and increasing its production capacities through technology and upgrades. The Fieldbrook management is constantly looking for opportunities to expand their production inside their own plant building. Warehouse cold storage is always at a premium for the company. To preserve shelf life and the integrity of the ice cream flavors the product is stored at minus 25* Fahrenheit compared to frozen vegetables, breads and pastas at minus 5*, or the store at 5 to 10 degrees below zero. Or, even your own home freezer which usually runs at between zero and 5 below. Next time you enjoy one of the frozen delectable concoctions from your freezer stop and think for a second. This may have been manufactured right here in Chautauqua County by one of our hidden treasures.

state launches this stewardship program is essential for protecting our lake. Jennifer Phillips Russo, Adjunct Professor in Environmental Science at State University of New York at Fredonia, has concentrated on research to determine which nutrients, or combinations of, were drivers of algal communities in Chautauqua Lake. Her primary interest is to protect our ecosystems and educate our communities to become stewards of our natural resources. By taking and examining water samples on Chautauqua Lake she has learned that phosphorus and nitrogen are driving cyanobacteria, or bluegreen algae growth. These nutrients enter the lake from agricultural lands and runoff from fertilizer used. New technology has improved the methods for measuring pH, oxygen, conductivity, algae, temperature, and wind speed. A new scientific buoy called Chautauqua Aquatic Monitoring Project, or CHAMP has been placed at the Lutheran Camp, taking readings every 15 minutes to record these factors. These new water quality sensors provide high resolution results in an efficient and effective manner. Jonathan Townsend, Conservation Lands Manager of the Chautauqua Lake Conservancy spoke of The Importance of Chautauqua Lake’s Natural Resources. He said, “the lake is a reflection of the watershed”. His descriptions of the layout of the Chautauqua Lake Watershed helped attendees understand the impact of the land and streams,

which directs nutrients and pollutants into our lake. There are 100,000 acres of land in the watershed and about 13,000 acres in Chautauqua Lake. Townsend shared “there’s roughly 300 miles of streams and 14 sub-watersheds”. He said toxins from industry, agriculture, lawn care products, roadways, parking lots and vehicles all contaminate our environment. Townsend emphasized, “Climate change is happening now, not in the future”. The description of “Riparian Rights” is described as the lakefront owner is responsible for cleaning up their shoreline. As the CLA says “A Clean Lake is Everyone’s Business!” Limiting use of lawn chemicals, installation of buffer strips and rain gardens all help improve the quality of the lake. After the presentations and dinner, Paul Stage, CLA Board President shared some important words. He said the #1 problem is Weed Growth and #2 problem is Algae Bloom. He said in the evaluation of herbicides it is not an economically feasible method of weed control. Herbicides would take out the mussel population and affect the muskies, brown bats, bald eagles, and other wildlife. The chemical often used is 24D, which is the chemical Agent Orange. The CLA will continue shoreline clean-up, aquatic vegetation control through environmentally sound strategies, and educate the public about Chautauqua Lake and the tools needed to protect and improve its quality.

center for shipping and manufacturing. FLW was one of the great architects to make their imprint on the Queen City. Darwin D. Martin, an executive at Buffalo’s Larkin Company fell in love with Wright’s vision when he visited Oak Park, Illinois. This visit brought Darwin Martin back to Buffalo, where he convinced the Larkin Board of Directors to have Frank Lloyd Wright design the company’s new office building. The building was built from 1905-1907. This exquisite building, called the Larkin Administration Building, was light with an interior atrium, giving the office workers a light and productive environment. Tragically this building was demolished in 1950. This relationship laid the groundwork for the collection of his buildings standing in Western New York today. Wright’s Buffalo portfolio includes the Martin House Complex (1903-1905), which is one of the finest examples of his prairie period. The Graycliff Estate (1926-1931), on the shores of Lake Erie in Derby, was built as a summer home for the Martin family. The Fontana Boathouse, a mausoleum and filling station were all built nearly a century after they were first conceptualized. The William V. Davidson and William R. Heath Houses, which are still privately residences, complete the collection. This week (June 5-11) kicks off a summer of events in celebration of Frank Lloyd Wright’s 150th birthday. Events at Graycliff Estate: June 6: The “Larkin Company Family Picnic”, recreating the food and fun of the day was held overlooking Lake Erie.

is love. It’s clear that he loves everything he chooses to photograph. A Mayan toddler in a market stall completely surrounded by brightly colored fabrics; a Guatemalan grandmother elegantly garbed in traditional clothing by the side of a rural road; a bright-eyed white ibis; simple wooden fishing boats resting next to a tranquil lake; -fighter jets blazing across a d ncloudless blue sky. Stein sees tand captures the beauty in all rof them for all of us to share. - In fact, taking advantage of photographic technology, he will sometimes bring viewers an experience even better than the original moment. He’ll lengthen an exposure to show the movement of water, or Photoshop out power lines, or create a shallow depth of field to highlight a flower close up. All the while remaining true to the actual experience. A long-time Lakewood resident now retired and living in Florida, Lee and his wife Jennifer still spend summers in Lakewood. And every year, they travel off the beaten path – far off. They’ve gone all over the globe, from Turkey to the Galapagos Islands to Africa and beyond. Their latest trip to Guatemala


Cont. From Cover tenure as County Executive. Mr, Tranum then opened the floor to Mr. Horrigan for comments and presentation. Mr. Horrigan recognized he had only 7 months before retiring so that he might spend more time with his family, but he was very proud of the accomplishments that have occurred in the county in the years he was in office. He also recognized that changes and improvements have happened because everyone has worked together to allow and make them happen. He said he wanted to summarize the goals he had looked at to develop during his time in office. He wanted to work on lowering property taxes, he wanted to increase economic development and he wanted more efficient government. These were his priorities and he developed 15 different focus areas. The 15 focus areas are as follows: 1. Develop our tourism and cultural resources. Make Chautauqua County a premier destination. 2. Focus on our agriculture and foods. Develop and use the Chautauqua Grown 
Brand. 3. Work on both business development and retention. He reported Buffalo Business First ranks us 2nd in our region in these endeavors. 4. Work hard on infrastructure projects as we have a lot to do

this past winter served as the source of about half of his current photography show. Based at Casa Calibrí (“hummingbird house”), overlooking Guatemala’s Lake Atitlán, a 50 square-mile lake surrounded by volcanos, the Steins together with a group of friends explored many of the indigenous villages that ring the lake. Stein explained that it’s not an easy area to explore – the main form of transportation is by boat, augmented by pickup truck “taxis” (which pile 14 or more people in the truck bed), and “toktoks,” three-wheel motorcycles which squeeze three passengers into the back. Viewing Lee’s photos, it’s clear that, as he says, “Color is really big for these people.” He visited a cotton co-op (“Cotton comes from trees down there”, says Lee), where he saw the cotton spun and dyed in brilliant primary colors, with green banana leaves used to set the dye. “Every village has its own traditional fabric pattern,” Stein says. And they are on show in the images he shot at a cloth market, where every candid shot is saturated with color. However, photos of Guatemala only comprise about half of the exhibit. Lee can find plenty of inspiration closer to home. The show

includes some images of the Native American Music Awards, held just up the road in Salamanca, as well as spectacular shots of an air show in Titusville, Florida, not far from the Steins’ home. Of course, anyone who is at all familiar with Stein’s work will not be surprised to find one wall of the art show devoted to birds. Lee has long specialized in avian photography, and he’s taken full advantage of a bird sanctuary near his Melbourne, Florida residence to create beautiful portraits of his feathered friends there. Among the exotic spoonbills and ibises and black-crowned night herons are two faces more familiar to us northerners -- great blue herons, photographed during what they probably thought was a private moment of avian passion. Two little photographic gems are almost hidden behind a door, so be sure to look to your left as you are exiting the exhibit. That’s where you’ll find two images of “ecstatic dance” being performed in a studio in Pittsburgh’s South Side. One is a clever composite of three shots of a single dancer which are combined almost seamlessly. It’s a wonderful finish to a brilliant show – you don’t want to miss it!

in those areas. 5. Improve and develop education and libraries. 6. Reduce unemployment are create workforce development—we have had a ½% decrease in unemployment but need to do more. 7. Take environmental responsibility by taking a strong look at our environmental waste disposal and water resources. 8. Keep historic preservation 9. Provide and have” active living” which will make our county a year round destination. 10. Preserve energy in our county 11. Focus on and make people aware of human trafficking, 12. Focus on housing and blight elimination are important matters for us all. The Chautauqua County Land Bank is becoming very important in this field. 13. Improving healthcare is another important issue. New hospital affiliations are improving this but we are also dealing with addiction and drug problems. 14. Combine entities and services of local government to create need more efficiency. 15. Focus on at community and human services. County Executive Horrigan then summarized his points: 1. We need to lower taxes 2. We need to develop a 5 year financial plan. 3. We need regional solutions. 4. We need to grow existing businesses. 5. We need to keep new

businesses coming. At the end of Mr. Horrigan’s comments Mr. Tranum did a short interview of the County Executive and it went as follows-1. (Tranum) Mr. Horrigan what do you feel is one of your greatest accomplishments? (Horrigan)”We have consensus in all areas that will allow us to grow the county. 2. (Tranum) Mr. Horrigan what do you feel is one of our greatest challenges? (Horrigan) “Opioid drug problem. A waste of our people.” 3. (Tranum) Mr. Horrigan what are your thoughts on the sale of the County Home? (Horrigan) “It was a very difficult problem and a deeply personal one. It did however free us from some serious financial obligations.” 4. (Tranum) Mr. Horrigan what do you think about completion of the sewer around Chautauqua Lake in the next 5 years? (Horrigan) “Thee is an excellent chance of getting it done.” Mr. Tranum thanked Mr. Horrigan for attending along with the other attendees. County Executive Horrigan told everyone that even though he was retiring he would still be available for help during that retirement. He said our greatest challenge going forward would be that we need more people moving here along with more collaboration and sharing. Final words were “the county is moving and thriving.”

Day Trippin’:

Shakespeare to E’ville

Romeo & Juliet to be Performed at the Gazebo; August 11

Ellicottville, NY – It’s arguably the most famous story of star-crossed lovers and the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce is bringing it to town this summer. Cosponsored by the Cattaraugus County Arts Council, William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet will be featured in the gazebo lawn in Ellicottville on August 11, at 8pm. “When people think of Ellicottville, they think of music and bands,” Chamber Executive Director, Brian McFadden said. “While that is a part of who we are, we want people to know that we also have an appreciation for, and are an outlet for much more. What better way to do this than to provide a free performance of Romeo and Juliet to everyone, put on by professionals that know and understand the art?” The play will be performed by Shake on the Lake, a Silver Lake, NY, based Shakespearian troupe

that has been bringing the Bard’s pieces to Western and Central New York since 2012. The organization’s goals are creating a fun, family-friendly, outdoor production of Shakespeare to high artistic standards. They look to use cost-effective, green production practices and have been known to use refurbished and repurposed items in their productions. Shake on the Lake also helps sponsors find ways to make performances low-cost to offer a higher accessibility to quality performances. In previous years, the troupe has performed Twelfth Night, The Tempest, The Comedy of Errors, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. They tour the region performing to bring The Bard’s acts to as many as possible, performing in Geneseo, Letchworth State Park, Dansville, Darien Lake St. Park, Orleans County Marine Park, Attica, Arcade, Springville, Groveland

Prison & Silver Lake. Make sure you bring your chairs or a blanket and come out to enjoy an hour and a half of live Shakespeare. Before that, come out and see what’s going on with Ellicottville’s Stroll the Streets from 5-8pm.

to change their location and or colors, probably because I moved them or maybe was trying to save them when they had been crowded out. Unfortunately I’m afraid I have lost a lot of them, especially the Bearded Iris. They are not easy for me to grow, but it hasn’t stopped me from trying. The front garden was once edged in the softest light blue old fashioned looking tall Irises that are completely gone but have been replaced by a few big white ones. I think the mystery is that I never toss out any accidently uprooted or struggling Iris ryzhomes and will save them forever until I can get them back into the ground. So the white ones must have been salvaged but the blue ones are gone! Gardening is not easy and it is not glamorous. It’s hard work and it can be sad and

once started seems impossible to quit. My memory of my original Iris collection is that they were all colbalt blue and deep purples, a sky blue and whites. I now have a whole different array of old fashioned purples where the blues used to be. It’s okay but it’s sad to lose your favorites. I once had a black Iris, an orange, and a soft peach. Yep, they disappeared. I lust after the old stands of Iris that I see in passing old farmsteads and homes in the country that have these huge massive groupings of all one colour of Iris in a full sun exposure. It’s a sight I love but cannot have here. I have a shady wooded lot and they struggle. I seem to have much better luck with the Siberian type. They like the acidic, damp and even boggy soil here.

Always Be Receptive To The Inspiration That Is Everywhere

By Linda K. Yates Artist & Gardener

It’s fun to be under a Black Locust tree in early June on a sunny warm day when it seems to be raining petals from the tree’s Wisteria like white blossoms. Their wonderfully sweet fragrance fills the air as the puffy little sweet pea petals cover the ground. Even the dog seems to notice the illusion. The graceful Beauty Bush (Kolwitzia) is in full bloom with pale pink speckled orange miniature trumpet flowers. Alliums are coming and going as there are many different sizes and varieties taking their turns. The Foxgloves are opening as well as some of the Peonies. The ferns and hostas are looking luscious and the Lupines are divine.  But I suppose the highlight of the gardens now, if I have to choose one, would be the Irises. Most of them are in their full regalia and glory with the exception of the Japanese Iris, who bloom a little later this month.  I classify the two groups as Bearded Iris and the other as Siberian Iris. I do not believe that is entirely correct but the Beardeds like to be high and dry and all of the other smaller flowered types (sibirica) prefer damp soil and will even grow in water. Everyday is a new surprise with the Irises. They seem

Practical Intuitive:



Inspiration is everywhere – books; songs; tv shows; motivational speakers; quotes on Facebook – the list goes on. Some of the most influential and inspirational events have involved people in my life. Below are only a few of the many that have inspired me! My sister, Kathy, has been an inspiration about living beyond perceived handicaps - emotionally, mentally or physically. Having had polio, hospitalized for over six months, she has a leg and foot that are deformed. With our father’s influence of having the belief of mind over matter, my sister was physically active her whole life, including playing on her high school girls’ softball team and being captain of the girls’ field hockey team. When I was in middle school, I met Yolonda. Having numerous health issues and born physically deformed, she was also brilliant, sensitive, and had a great sense of humor. And, because I was extremely introverted, we sensed a mutual acceptance of each other, instantly becoming best friends. Unfortunately, others saw only the physical side of Yolanda and made fun of her.

Always feeling the need to protect her, she’d smile and say to me, “It’s okay. They don’t know better”. Having a heart of gold, wise and loving beyond her years, she taught me the gift of forgiveness and acceptance of others. I have a very dear friend who is one of the most amazing women I have ever had the honor and pleasure to know. Strong in heart, mind and faith, she demonstrates incredible perseverance to shift her perspective of an extremely abusive past, continuously moving forward, living in the present moment with fullness and authenticity. I am in awe of her incredible strength, courage, wisdom, compassion and commitment to love herself, to become her own best friend. I loved my mother, yet she was rarely available, emotionally or physically. Most of the time, working long hours, she came home exhausted. Add living with my father, who was a ticking time bomb, doing her best with the help of my grandmother to raise seven children, left little time to be alone with her. It was a rare and treasured gift when I could be. Once I was upset about someone making fun of me. Her sage advice, “It doesn’t matter what anyone says about you as long as you know who you are” still inspires me and I often share it with others. I want to publicly thank the owner and editor of this newspaper, Jeanine Zimmer-Carlson, for being an inspiration. Well, maybe more accurately, the one who pushed me off the preverbal diving board to get me to write these articles. Always having

the desire to write, I often found an excuse to dodge the challenge. It was during a game of Words With Friends with Jeanine that I messaged, “Have you ever thought about having someone write an inspirational column”? She quickly responded in her Jeanine-style way, “Sure. When do you want to start”? Gulp! Thank you, Jeanine, for the push and confidence in me! You are a dear friend! The one person who I feel that has had the greatest effect on my life, whom I often refer to as my guardian angel, my maternal Grandma. Her unconditional love and acceptance was my saving grace as I was growing up in a turbulent home environment. She would talk with me, listen to my stories, guide and encourage me. Even when she was scolding me, it was with love and the intention to inspire me to always be my best. She is the reason I chose the name “Grandma” when the first of our two beautiful granddaughters were born. Rick is definitely one of the other most inspirational people in my life yet I gave him a reprieve in this article! Whoever or whatever has inspired you, please take time to offer thanks and gratitude for the effect it has had your life. And, always be receptive to the inspiration that is everywhere!

How to Taste Cheese Back For The Summer

Part 1: The Human Senses of Smell and Taste & Inseparably Linked

By Riko Chandra Chesemaker, Cheesemonger, Co-owner Reverie Creamery, Artisan Cheesemaking and Cheese Shop “Every piece of fine cheese you savor has a story to tell. It begins with outward appearance and aroma, continues with a series of momentary taste impressions, and ends with much longer period of contemplation. The crux of the matter is taste, and the first thing to remember about taste is that the nose does most of the work.” (Max McCalman) The human senses of smell and taste are inseparably linked. Together they provide a spectrum of flavors and sensory pleasures. But how does taste actually work? The human tongue is covered with thousands of papillae. Each contains hundreds of taste buds, located on the front and back of the tongue. The roof and sides of the mouth contain taste buds, however they are in lower quantities. Though we use the tongue to taste,

Harbison, a soft-ripened cheese (like brie) wrapped in a strip of spruce bark from Jasper Hill

how can the statement above saying that “the nose does most of the work”, be true? After all, you would think that the nose is for smelling and the tongue is for tasting. Here is the explanation. When you like the flavor of something, most of the perception is based on the aroma of what was consumed. Even if it does not seem like you smelled what was being eaten, aromatic molecules still added lots of information as you chew. According to Adam Centamore, some research suggests that, unlike the receptors the tongue uses to detect taste, chemoreceptors in the nasal cavity are highly specialized. Wait a minute, what are chemoreceptors? They are special detectors that sense airborne aromatic molecules and pass coded

electrical information on to the brain. Remember, when you have a stuffy nose, no matter how delicious tasting a bowl of hearty chicken soup your mom made, it will be tasteless. We have to understand though, if you don’t have any reference to such information in the brain, then it becomes new information. What I am trying to say here is, if you smell a piece of cheese that smells briny like fresh oysters but you never once had fresh oysters in your life, then you probably say in disgust, “what the heck is that funky fishy smell?”. You still make some correlation to a certain group of objects. If you think a cheese or wine has the aroma of pineapple and you have never seen or See “CHEESE”



Jamestown’s 139 Year Old Farmers Market Returns

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (June 6, 2017) – The Jamestown Renaissance Corporation is eager for this Saturday, June 10th, opening day of the newly rebranded farmers market. The Jamestown Public Market will operate on the 200 Block of Cherry Street every Saturday, June through October from 9am-1pm. “Most people don’t realize that the Jamestown Farmers Market has been around since 1878! The name Jamestown Public Market was added to the city directory in 1913” says Christina Breen, Market Manager. “We wanted to preserve that piece of history and honor the efforts of past farmers and artisans who fought for over a century to keep this tradition alive.” The change to the Jamestown Public Market was not only an opportunity to highlight the historic value of the market, but to encourage the expansion of amenities to mirror other successful public markets across the nation. Also new this year, JRC has scheduled the 21-week event to take place on Saturdays. This change has been

what Chautauqua County has to offer. This year, JRC has partnered with Univera Healthcare to sponsor the market amenities to encourage full success and revenue retention for participating vendors. JRC staff works hard to garner sponsorship and relationships with community partners to lessen the burden on vendors by charging a small vendor fee each week. In years past, vendor fees were eliminated for an entire season due to increased sponsorship. It has been the mission of the market to emphasize sustainability and maximize profits for local small businesses to keep our regional economy strong. The market operates next to the Pearl City Arts building, which is quickly filling up with a variety of art, wellness, food and retail related businesses. “We feel privileged to be sharing the same block with a diverse group of businesses. We are hoping more people will become familiar with all that downtown has to offer this summer” says Breen. “We are counting on our community to show up every Saturday to shop and support local!” The Jamestown Public Market will feature free live entertainment from local musicians each week along with outdoor seating, food demonstrations and tastings, wellness events, and much more. This summer’s featured farmers include Abers Acres, Scotts Farm & Greenhouse and J & E Produce. For Peate’s Sake Homestead is back for their

in discussion for many years, as community members and downtown business owners continue to suggest that weekend hours will improve attendance by accommodating people who work during the week. It also allows participants to enjoy free parking for the event. “Saturdays are a busy day for farmers but Jamestown’s market has proven worthwhile for them, so they are enthusiastic to see what a Saturday morning market will bring this season. We are hoping for a great turnout, which leads to improved foot traffic for downtown businesses and increased profits for vendors and farmers. Increased attendance also helps us acquire data needed to expand to a year-round indoor market at some point in the future” explains Breen. This potential expansion is directly related to the amount of support received from local residents this summer. The Jamestown Public Market is proud to be considered a small business incubator in Jamestown. Local farmers, artisans, bakers and chefs convene downtown to showcase the bounty of See “FARMERS”

Sculpture for Lakewood Local Artist Donates Carving to Village Appreciating Sailing

Photo, Left to Right: Rick Turner, President, CLCSF, Vince Liuzzo, artist, Cara Birrittieri, Lakewood Mayor

Lakewood has a new edition to its waterfront as of Sunday, June 4. Lakewood Mayor, Cara Birrittieri, and artist Vince Liuzzo unveiled the sailboat sculpture as part of the Live Laugh Love Lakewood Community Wellness Day. The carving was started as a demonstration on Chautauqua Avenue during the snowy Christmas in the Village event. Liuzzo, co-owner of The Tree Guys of Jamestown, worked all day in the snow that day and continued the project indoors over the spring. The goal was to donate a carving to the village, which would bring

attention to one of Lakewood’s community assets. During the June 4 event, Birrittieri said, “Thanks to the Tree Guys, and Vince Liuzzo’s artistry, we now have a centerpiece and an icon which establishes once again, that the wonderful sport and recreation of sailing is not only part of Lakewood’s history, but is here to stay long into our future.” Board members of the Chautauqua Lake Community Sailing Foundation, a nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to promoting sailing to the public and located at the

Lakewood waterfront, and many local sailors attended the unveiling, along with the Mayor and Deputy Mayor, Ted McCague. The boat was carved from a large spalted hard maple and took approximately thirtyfive hours to complete and weighed over 1500 lbs. in the beginning. According to Liuzzo, this project furthers the mission of Team Tree Guys of Jamestown, and Sherwood Arts, which is part of Involvement, Neighborliness and Charity (INC), a Jamestown charitable organization. “This is another way we hope to connect the dots between local communities, and organizations like CLCSF, and residents who can benefit and advance from such opportunities. The overall goal is to highlight the unique and empowering activities available in our local communities, and in this case sailing here in Lakewood,” says Liuzzo. For more information on Community Sailing in Lakewood, contact Hunter Farris at 716-720-1550 or visit . For more information on the carving and other Tree Guys projects visit or call 716.450.8873.

with our sense of smell. The bottom line is the more you explore, the more you experience with so many different kinds of foods, you will be rewarded with an impressive vocabulary of cheese descriptors. You can say a cheese to have beefy, oniony, grassy, barnyard aroma. When you taste Loire valley style aged goat cheese you can say … the core of the cheese is pasty and chalky in the very center with tart lemony taste, but just under the rind it is creamy and slightly pungent with a distinct goat milk taste. When you taste long aged Parmigiano-Reggiano, you can say that the cheese is granular with strong umami taste. What is umami taste? Well, in a couple weeks we will explore the component of taste. The more you understand what they are, the easier you will able to describe the cheese and this is applicable to other foods as well. In the mean time,

believe me that in such a little piece of cheese, it can have complexity in terms of aroma, texture, flavor more than any other foods. Harbison, a soft-ripened cheese (like brie) wrapped in a strip of spruce bark from Jasper Hill (where I studied cheesemaking) is the image for this article. It is served with fresh radishes and carrots to contrast and compliment both flavor and texture. Can you imagine the aroma and taste of this cheese? Well, also imagine, a cheese named Winnimere, also from Jasper Hill, which is just like Harbison, however, it is washed repeatedly with brine creating a completely unique and complex taste and aroma. So, be fearless and adventurous! This weekend, try few little pieces of those odd looking cheeses with strange names that you want to get acquainted with but have not had a chance to do so… Stay tuned for Part 2.

Author McCalman, also said aspiring connoisseurs of fine food and wines in America are disadvantaged because in this country we are brought up to shun anything that smells, strong, pungent, funky – in other words, interesting. Billions of dollars are spent each year by the personal hygiene, cosmetics, and homehome products industries developing and marketing products that mask natural odors.

St. Bonas at PGA Tour

Celebration Of Life

Ryan Swanson, Head Golf Coach at SBU Lands Spot at

St. Bonaventure head golf coach Ryan Swanson is heading the PGA tour at Peek n’ Peak.

By Nicholas Pircio Fresh off the golf course, Ryan Swanson took time recently to talk to The Ledger about playing in an upcoming major event. Swanson, the head golf coach at St. Bonaventure University, will head to a familiar venue, the Peek n’ Peak Resort in Clymer. There, he will join fellow golfers in the PGA Tour LECOM Health Challenge. Dates for the event are July 6-9. Swanson has played in the Challenge before, but unlike

in the past, this time he will not have to go through a oneday qualifying process, since he’s been given a sponsor exemption. Previously, Swanson captured the Chautauqua County Men’s Amateur Championship in 2007, while an undergrad on the St. Bonaventure golf team. Swanson says he’s excited to be playing this year. “I grew up at Peek n’ Peak, playing and working there. I call it my home course from 1995 until 2009. I’m very excited to be back there, and I now live only ten minutes away. I’ll work to prepare the right way to get the most out of it.” Swanson hones his golf game by playing on the Western New York PGA circuit, typically on Mondays and Fridays. “I’ll be devoting a bit more time at least in the coming four to five weeks, and actually get the clubs out of the trunk of the car in between tournaments and practice.” Since he’s played in the Challenge before, Swanson said he more or less knows what to expect and what to work on; that it’s just a matter of preparation.

friends. And now I know a lot more people for having a profession and being the Bonaventure coach, and I certainly hope people come out, not only to support me, but to support the event and see some of the best players in the world come in to our region.”

acquainted with any of the other golfers in the field, Swanson knows he will be going up against some of the world’s best. The Tour is the developmental tour of the PGA Tour, and features some of the top players in the world who are seeking to earn their PGA Tour card. Viewers are encouraged to tune in to the Golf Channel all four days to catch at least parts of the Challenge. Best time to watch, according to Swanson, is during the midafternoon hours. You can also follow the tournament on social media, and on the website. Swanson notes that there is a cut in the playing field after July 7th. “So I’m guaranteed to play on the 6th and 7th. If I make the cut, I’ll get to play on Saturday and Sunday, too.” Playing in the Challenge can only benefit the St. Bonaventure University golf program. “I think any publicity we can get is good.
