Weekly Column By Donna Germain

Did you know….? Did you just take a shower or brush your teeth? Thinking about doing the dishes or some laundry? Have you ever just watched the water run and think how fortunate we are to have this clean drinking water. Most people in the rural areas of Chautauqua county do not pay for their water consumption. It comes right out of their well and is pumped into the house. Some areas are on “Public Water” in which they pay for their consumption. I think they may be a little more inclined to watch how much they use.

Jamestown, NY – Media One Radio Group has acquired local radio station WKZA 106.9 FM from Cross Country Communications in a broadcast deal that began in early June and concluded with a grant by the Federal Communications Commission. The sale brings Media One Radio Group’s ownership in the local radio market to a total of seven frequencies. The company was formed in 2002 for the purchase

e s s t e e s d s t o s e n d

This past spring heritage AM station WJTN was granted a translator license to begin simulcasting its programming onto the new 101.3 FM.   Media One Radio Group, President and CEO James T.

Rolling Hills Radio Hosts Two Solo Performers at Shawbucks, November 19th

On November 19 at Shawbucks in downtown Jamestown, NY, Rolling Hills Radio will present two solo performers, Jill Jack and Martin Swinger. Jill Jack - An astonishing 44 time Detroit Music Award recipient, Jill began her professional career singing backup with well-known Detroit country and rock bands. By the late 90s she was writing constantly, fronting her own band and beginning to open for what would become a long list of prominent touring acts -- Bob Seger, John Waite, Emmylou Harris, Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin, Dan Fogelberg, Marshall Crenshaw, Chris Issak, and Loretta Lynn. As well she developed her reputation as headliner at venues & festivals -- SXSW (South by Southwest), Ann Arbor Folk Festival, 30A Songwriters Festival, WYCD Downtown Hoedown, Blissfest Music Festival, The Bluebird Café, The Living Room in NYC, and consistent sell-out shows at the historical Ark in Ann Arbor, MI. Regional touring has branched to successful tours of England and all over America. Jill was also a finalist in the Susanne Millsaps Performing Songwriter Showcase and was chosen as an Americana semifinalist in the International Songwriting Competition for

Fallen (A Love Song). Jack now has 12 Award winning CD’s to her name. “Martin Swinger excels at singing, songwriting, guitarplaying, and being so present with his humor, tenderness, and wild mind that his performances are also deep conversations, soul to soul and heart to heart, about the quirks, surprises, and love that brings us most alive. His songs, ranging from the little plastic parts that hold the world together, to what enlightenment comes from Buddha and Betty Boop falling in love, are whimsically and wisely original and enduring.”​ Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, Kansas Poet Laureate Emeritus Martin is a multi-awardwinning performer/songwriter and seasoned arts educator sharing songwriting skills with kindergarten through adult learners, leading improvisational singing workshops, vocal coaching and mentoring other artists. He is currently recording his 6th CD of original songs. Ken Hardley: “Season nine of this show really gets traction with these two songwriters. Jill belts out the blues and croons some beauties too. With a roomful of Detroit-area awards to show for it. As for Martin, he steers songwriting into some interesting, and even

odd, territory. He’s clearly a gentle poet by nature, and his songs seem to benefit from the guy’s boundary-less psyche. People are going to walk out of this show knowing they have heard a whole bunch of they’d never thought of before.” On upcoming shows this season, Rolling Hills Radio will present Mollie O’Brien, Don Dixon, the Bryan Bowers Band, Folkfaces, Cosy Sheridan, Jen Sygit, and many more. Rolling Hills welcomes its newest radio station, WRAQLP out of Angelica, New York. “Weekly broadcasts of the show are a fine addition to our lineup,” says station manager Don Ash “We’ve been looking to feature the show in our area for some time and glad we could make it happen sooner rather than later.” All live RHR shows take place at Shawbucks, across from Jamestown’s Ice Arena. Doors open — to all those holding or purchasing tickets — at 5:30pm for the “Happy Rolling Hour.” Food and drink are available until 6:15 at which time audience members take their seats and the house lights dim. Audio and video recording begins promptly at 6:30. The bar reopens for 10 minutes at intermission and then again after the show when the audience and performers are invited to a “Meet and Greet.” As always, there are three options for purchasing tickets; Until the show is sold out, tickets are available at the door the night of each show. If you choose, you can call ahead at the Rolling Ticket Hotine (716) 294-0416. Tickets are also available online at http://www.rollinghillsradio. org   Tickets for the November 19 show are $15.00 each.

Hightlighted At Westfield,-Mayville Rotary Club Session

Rachael Snyder (right), American Red Cross (ARC) of Western New York Chapter Recruitment Specialist, shares some information with John Hamels (left), Westfield-Mayville Rotary President Elect. Snyder spoke about ARC volunteer opportunities during the Oct. 30th meeting of the Westfield-Mayville Rotary Club at The Parkview in Westfield.

Rachael Snyder, Volunteer Recruitment Specialist of the American Red Cross Western New York Chapter, described the various fundamental principles, services and volunteer opportunities of the American Red Cross (ARC) during the Oct. 30 meeting of the Rotary Club of WestfieldMayville, which was held at The Parkview in Westfield. Club President Elect John Hamels welcomed Snyder and introduced her as the guest presenter. Snyder said, “Rotary and the ARC actually have quite a bit in common, such as local and international volunteer efforts.” The latter lists its mission statement as “The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.” Snyder noted that during high school she was an Interactor, which is the Rotary group

of secondary students who conduct various volunteer service projects. “ARC was founded by Clara Barton on May 21, 1881. We are not government affiliated, and, like Rotary, we offer services around the world,” stated Snyder. She noted the seven fundamental principles of the ARC as humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality. Her Rotary program focused on various aspects of volunteer services. Snyder said, “At ARC we like to say sleeves up, hearts open and all in.” She discussed the eight categories of ARC volunteer services as disaster response, preparedness education, service to the armed forces (which is the oldest), health and safety training, international humanitarian services, fundraising, leadership, and blood services. Snyder noted that

in the Western NY region, there is a great need for services related to house fires and flooding. She said, “ARC assists families affected by house fires about 180 times per day, and it assists 1,400 people per hour every day.” Snyder continued, “We have a high need in Chautauqua County for volunteers to join our Disaster Action Team (DAT). Members of DAT can serve as disaster responders and help to set up shelters, be disaster public affairs volunteers, join as community preparedness presenters and serve with the home fire campaign team.” ARC’s services to the armed forces opportunities include Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) volunteer, VA hospital volunteer, Hero Care Network Regional Caseworker, community outreach and events, Reconnection Workshop Instructor, and administrative support. Snyder stated, “Ninety percent or above of our workforce consists of volunteers.

Annual Audubon Event, Saturday, November 17th

Audubon Community Nature Center’s Thanksgiving with the Birds, Saturday, November 17, features a great meal followed by a presentation by SUNY Fredonia Associate Professor of Art Peter Tucker. Tucker will share what he has learned about how constructed habitats can help wildlife. For instance, could the Flicker house pictured here help the bird that inspired Jamestown native Roger Tory Peterson to change how we see the natural world? New this year is the opportunity for two to eight year olds to participate in Nature Play Day while the adults enjoy the presentation.

Jamestown, N.Y. – You and your family are invited for a potluck dinner, presentation, and fun outdoor activities at Audubon Community Nature Center’s Thanksgiving with the Birds on Saturday, November 17. Begun in 1965, this annual event is Audubon’s oldest continuing tradition. Families with young children are especially encouraged to participate this year as the November Nature Play Day for two to eight year olds will run at the same time. Parents and other caregivers are encouraged to bring the kids and drop them off at the Nature Play Area or stay with them,

if they prefer. Nature Play Day is free thanks to a grant from the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation Legacy Funds. At 11:30 a.m. you can gather to mix broth-based soup contributions into a big pot over an outdoor fire. The flavor of this concoction changes with each addition. Audubon provides the roasted turkeys, potatoes, and beverages for the indoor buffet dinner that begins about 12:30. Participants are asked to bring a side dish (dressing, vegetables, salad, or dessert) and their own table service, including a mug for soup. Following dinner, Peter Tucker will share what he has

learned about whether humans can make homes that aid threatened or beneficial insects and animals. An Associate Professor of Art at Fredonia State University of New York, Tucker spent a sabbatical investigating how constructed habitats can help wildlife and which animals could benefit the most. Tucker designed projects that use local materials and has built beehives primarily from dumpster discards and nest boxes from discarded furniture. He finds that perhaps the most important part of his project is exploring opportunities for education, outreach, and community participation. The Nature Center’s Blue Heron Gift Shop will be open for holiday shopping during this delightful event hosted by Janet Forbes and Alan Brown. Participants are asked to pay $6, and reservations are appreciated by Wednesday, November 11. Call (716) 569-2345 during business hours or reserve online on the Programs page at auduboncnc. org. Walk-ins are welcome. Audubon Community Nature Center is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, N.Y., and Warren, Pa. To learn more, call (716) 569-2345 or visit 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.

address to the nation, ‘I’ve spoken of the Shining City all my political life. In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, Godblessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That’s how I saw it, and see it still.’” (Read “Reagan: An American Journey” by Bob Spitz) Back in history, John Winthrop, who, with a thousand others escaped King Charles’ repression of Nonconformist religious thought, allegedly said, when landing in Salem Harbor aboard the Arbella in 1630: “For we must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill, the eyes of all people are upon us. . .” President-elect John F. Kennedy (#35 – 1961-1963) said, in an address to the Massachusetts Legislature (1/ 9/61), “During the last 60 days I have been engaged in the task of constructing an administration….

Bush (#43 – 2001-2009) had his city on a hill moment after September 11, 2001 when he framed the war against terror as a moral response, a mission blessed by God that the rest of the world would join in. ‘America was targeted for attack because we’re the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world,’ the president said. ‘And no one will keep that light from shining.’” Finally, President George H.W.

Water Cont. From Cover Our planet is 75% covered by water, which is why we are called the Blue Planet. 97.5% of that water is salt water. We only have 2.5% of freshwater to drink and utilize. World wide we use 10 billion tons of fresh water a day. Believe it or not when it comes to household use, flushing the toilet consumes the most water. A standard toilet uses about 3.5 gallons of water per flush. If you were to flush a low-flow toilet it uses about 1.6 gallons or less. Studies show that after installing a water efficient toilet the next best water saver is a high efficiency clothes washer. Standard top-loaders use about 34 gallons per load and a high efficiency washer uses about 15 gallons or less. Taking a shower comes in at number three for consuming the most water. The average eight-minute shower uses about 17 gallons of water. We waste about 5 gallons of water a day just brushing our teeth; if we brush twice a day that is about 3650

gallons a year. About 75% of Americans admit to leaving the water running while brushing their teeth. The average American consumes about 5 liters of water per day in a moderate climate. This is not to mention the “virtual water” that is what we call it when we do not really see it being used. Virtual water is used in agricultural and manufacturing. Agricultural is the largest consumer of water alone. Agriculture alone can consume 75 to 90% of a region’s available freshwater. Did you know that 1 ton of grain requires 1000 tons of water? The steak you eat requires 1,232 gallons. I bet that never crossed your mind. The water consumed to produce our food plays an even bigger part in our consumption – it amounts to 3,496 liters a day per person. This is invisible water that we consume without knowing about it. 1 kilo of chocolate requires 24,000 liters of water.1 piece of paper needs about 10 liters. Unbelievable, right? No one ever thinks about this. A lot of organizations and environmentalists are saying that our water supply is dwindling, but very few take

it seriously. Why should we take it seriously? We see water everywhere. But it is a fact that over one billion people in developing countries do not have access to safe drinking water. The USA on the other hand, uses 3.9 trillion gallons of water per month. According to the World Health Organization, 80% of all diseases in the developing world are water related. By 2025, the United Nations estimates that 30% of the world’s population residing in 50 countries will face a water shortage. Water shortage is a bigger problem today than ever before. Not only are we using up our available supply, our population continues to grow and with it, the demand. Global warming is compounding the problem. Unless we all take it seriously, soon we will have a water crisis on our hands. A study shows that the United States water consumption is up 127% since 1950. We will live on a blue planet without a drop of water that’s safe to drink. So, let’s all make a conscious effort to see how we can cut down on our usage. Remember every drop counts. Now you know….

“A Star Is Born”

Showing At the Fredonia Opera House, November 10th & November 13th

FREDONIA – The next feature film in the Opera House Cinema Series is “A Star is Born,” starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. It will be screened on Sat., Nov. 10, and Tues., Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m. In this new take on the tragic love story directed by and starring Cooper, seasoned musician Jackson Maine (Cooper) discovers - and falls in love with struggling artist Ally (Gaga). She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer… until Jack coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally’s career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jack fights an ongoing battle with his own

internal demons. Mark Daniell, in the Toronto Sun, calls the film “an instant movie classic that will have audiences falling in love with his brand new creation.” Adam Graham, in the Detroit News, calls it “a delicate love story and triumphant tribute to the artistic spirit.” Richard Roeper, in the Chicago Sun Times, calls it “the best ‘A Star Is Born’ yet, and one of the best movies of the year.” Randy Cordova, in the Arizona Republic, says “somehow, Cooper has made a Hollywood fairy tale seem utterly believable and magical at the same time.” R for language throughout, some sexuality/nudity and substance abuse, “A Star is

Born” runs two hours, 16 minutes. Lake Shore Savings Bank sponsors the Opera House Cinema Series. Tickets are available at the door for $7 (adults), $6.50 (seniors & Opera House members) and $5 (students) the night of each screening. A book of 10 movie passes is available for $60 at the door or online at Thanks to the generous support of an anonymous donor, the first 20 SUNY Fredonia students at each screening are admitted free.

The Tuscan Moon is a major fundraiser during August but now it is time for the second major fundraiser everyone looks forward to all year long, Bob McCarthy’s Irish Christmas. It’s finally here! Friday, November 30th, 6pm. Located in the heart of the village, Ellicottville Brewing Company’s flagship location, 28 Monroe Street, hosts the event. This is the 13th Irish Christmas and it just keeps getting bigger and better. A few changes have been made to better adapt to the large and generous response. “The Voice of Ellicottville” Bob McCarthy, is often quoted about the event, “I love doing Irish Christmas which is a night of Irish magic.” Sorely missed after passing in 2016, his spirit and generosity, especially towards the community’s youth, lives on and strong with this celebration. McCarthy’s wagon will be parked all day where new toys and gifts are collected for Santa’s workshop and the Sheriff’s Santa Program. All drop-offs of donated toys and items are greatly appreciated. Families and children less fortunate will be assisted with Christmas through the generous donations. In addition to McCarthy’s wagon, some of Bob McCarthy’s creations that have been donated will be

They also created the special pie boxes that will be perfect accompaniment to The Fabulous Pie Auction. Come hungry and come ready to try and win pies for yourself and holiday giving. Kilt or no kilt, bring your Irish enthusiasm for featured musical guest, Seanache. You’ll be transported to an Ireland winter wonderland with the songs and tunes of the old country. Bring your dancing shoes too, as traditional Irish music is all about dancing, clapping, joining in, and the ‘craic’ (fun). For the occasion, you will be able to enjoy fine Irish food fare offered by local

establishments Katy’s, Dina’s, Madigan’s, The Silver Fox, or Villagios. You can order Irish at EBC or directly off their menu as well. Events that give back to the community always need help from the community. If you would like to help, The Rotary welcomes donations at P O Box 101 in Ellicottville, NY 14731. Include an email address if you would like a receipt since all donations are tax deductible. Bob McCarthy’s Irish Christmas brings Christmas joy to many families in the community and is the perfect opportunity for locals and visitors alike to share with and for the community. Join the festivities November 30th for a memorable event, a little blarney, and fabulous holiday spirit.
