Beer & Wing Festival... pg. 8
Annual Beer & Wing Festival, This Saturday August 27th
By Kerra Trivieri This Saturday, August 27th will mark the first annual Beer and Wing Festival in Jamestown, New York. The festival will be hosted and sponsored by Jamestown Savings Bank Arena and Media One Group. The event itself was an idea that was sparked from the success of previous events hosted by the arena this past January and May. “The idea also came about because of the great success we had with our Grapes and Hops Festival and the Taste of the Trail Wine Festival,” said Director of Sponsorship Sales Sherry......
Team and individual registrations are now open for the 12th annual Walk 4 Paws, presented by the Petco Foundation. This is the Chautauqua County Humane Society’s largest fundraiser of the year. The event combines a family friendly 1.5-mile walk through Chautauqua Institution with charitable giving to help provide care for all the animals awaiting adoption at the shelter. The annual Walk 4 Paws event takes place on Saturday, October 1 at the Chautauqua Institution Hall of Philosophy. Check-in begins at 9am, with the official walk starting at 10:30am. Again this year, at 10am, CCHS will feature a runway for pets and their owners to show off their finest costumes and/or tricks. This the costume contest judging will take place. Also, Luke Fodor of St. Luke’s Church will conduct a blessing of the animals prior to the launch of the walk. Awards and complimentary refreshments will follow at the conclusion of the walk. “This is one of our most exciting and largest events all year,” said Jeff Lubi, Executive Director for CCHS. “It’s a fun and relaxing event that allows our participants to tour Chautauqua with their pets and support a great cause in the process,” said Lubi.
It’s early Saturday morning on Lake Chautauqua and the fleet of sleek tournament fishing boats stealthily crossing the narrows at Bemus Point and Stow create a familiar and appealing summer picture. From a more pragmatic perspective it’s a picture of a flotilla of dollars coming into the County. Craig Robbins, Chautauqua County Hunting and Fishing Promotions Director and licensed hunting and fishing guide said that the tournaments provide direct economic impact. “Between Memorial Day and Labor Day there are approximately 2.9 fishing tournaments a weekend on Lake Chautauqua. And don’t forget Lake Erie. It’s a major draw for tourism,” Robbins said. He acknowledged that it is difficult to pinpoint the exact bottom line economic contribution that fishing tournaments make to the County. However he suggests that the 2009 U.S. Fish & Wild Life Service (FLW) estimate that each tournament participant

Publisher’s Word “So Long Summer”
It’s getting to be that time of year – cool mornings and a flat, waveless lake… Try as we might to forestall the onset of autumn, Mother Nature always has other plans for us. It’s time to start thinking about what we haven’t quite gotten to this season, and begin preparation for what lays ahead… The Villager Lakeside Edition sure had a fun summer this year – our events calendar was always chock full of appealing activities for anyone lucky enough to visit this beautiful corner of New York State
during this, our busiest season. But now it’s time to fold up our publishing tent for yet another season – we’re trying our best to not be sad, as good times and new seasons are assuredly waiting just around the corner… And so, I must say ‘thank you’ to all our advertisers and (most of all) our loyal readers for helping The Villager be one of the best little newspapers around. Enjoy what I’m sure is going to be a spectacular Fall, and an epic winter! Until next time… JZ-C

Cont. From Cover Jamestown, Lakewood, Buffalo, Syracuse and Rochester. Some came from Fredonia State University and area high schools. A few had professional music training, and others are current performers looking for a break. There were even those whose total experience came from behind the wheel of their cars or in the shower before work. Either way, the group was paired down from over 100 applications down to the 26 contestants that took to the stage back on July 11th. The competition began July 11th with 26 singers and performers taking to the stage for two weeks of Blind Auditions. During that time, the judges used only their ears and audience reaction to determine a singer’s true vocal capabilities. After eight weeks of Battle Rounds featuring solo performances as well as head-to-head duet competitions, five competitors survived eight weeks of performing, rehearsals and mentoring to take to the stage this past Monday night. According to Dan Dalpra, Chairman of the Bemus Bay Pops,
“It’s just amazing how their talent matured in just eight weeks.” The “Final Five” represented four counties and three states, anxious to see who would take home over $10,000 in prizes; easily the largest winnings package of any vocal competition of its kind in the Northeast. From recording studio time, professional headshots for the rising stars, a chance to headline at the Hard Rock Cafe in Niagara Falls, cash prizes, additional vocal lessons and more, a winner could easily see their careers progress quickly thanks to taking the first place prize. One of the biggest prizes included a chance to sing with the Bemus Bay Pops orchestra during the famous Labor Day Concert and fireworks extravaganza that will take place on September 3rd. The last contestants consisted of Eric Wilbon of Buffalo, New York, Liz Osborn of Darien, New York, Anthony Horvath of Youngstown, Ohio, Ryan Buzzetto of Lakewood, New York and Angel Rodrigues of Jamestown, New York. Each competitor sang two songs: one each in the first round, returning later to sing their second selection. Eric Wilbon hit the stage with “Human Nature” by Michael
Jackson, before stunning the crowd with his rendition of the classic “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”. Angel Rodrigues sang Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man” then brought everyone to their feet with “If I Ain’t Got You.” Liz Osborn showed her country roots with Sara Evans “Suds in the Bucket” only to follow up with “Stay”. Anthony Horvath delivered the goods on “Ave Maria” and hit the ground running with his Vegasstyled rendition of Sinatra’s “Come Fly with Me”. In the end, it was Fredonia State music grad, Eric Wilbon who took the 2016 title of Chautauqua Lake Choice Winner home with him in front of fellow students and friends including FSU President Virginia Horvath who took time from the first day of classes at the college to come support her former student. Eric will now be mentored by Robin Grandin and members of the Bemus Bay Pops in preparation for his next performance during the Labor Day Celebration. “It’s a dream come true.” said Wilbon who was stunned when he was announced the winner. “I don’t know what to say other than I can see my career laying out before me.”

The exact selection of beers on tap changes with availability from suppliers, but Guppy’s also carries 40 different bottles to choose from. Current owners Doug and Christy moved to Chautauqua Lake and took over Guppy’s almost 9 years ago. Their vision was to create a restaurant with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere with great food at reasonable prices. Since then, Guppy’s not only has local notoriety
as a friendly establishment, but has won TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence for 2014, 2015, and 2016.

Doug and Christy also have a passion for fresh ingredients, so Guppy’s does not use any injected or frozen meats. If you love seafood, beer, good food and friendly atmosphere, then Guppy’s Clambake is for you. Guppy’s is open Tuesday-Sunday all year round. Outdoor patio seating is also available.

Flower Fundraiser Helps Bemus Point Library
Danelle Padd (left) and Librarian Kathleen McCarthy stand among the bouquets and books available at the Bemus Point Library.
Story and Photo By John Thomas Staff Writer Even though the Bemus Point Library is small, it faces the same funding challenges that libraries everywhere face. To be able to keep its door open it must constantly be raising money in the form of raffles, events, and grants. This summer and fall Library Director Kathleen McCarthy and volunteer Danelle Padd have hit upon a unique and beautiful fund raising idea. Now, when you go to the library, you can not only check out a book or video but purchase a beautiful bouquet to take home. Ms. Padd is the owner of the Bemus Flower Field on Belleview Road. She grows flowers for cutting, and now
supplies the flowers being used for the fundraiser. The vases with the flowers are at various locations throughout the library, and for a $3 people can take them home – vase and all. Ms. Padd observes the flowers “make the library more homey. It’s a win-win with a local flower field supporting the local library.” Director Kathleen McCarthy says, “If we don’t sell them it’s nice to have them in the library.” Only 25% of the library’s funds come from the county, town, and village, so McCarthy concludes, “We have to raise most of our money.” Even so, she feels it’s important to keep up with the times. The library has a website and a Facebook page. People can come into the library to use the free Wi-Fi to send email
and surf the web. Or have some quiet reading time in the reading center. There are Lego tables for the kids, and the library stacks all the latest books. The two women point out that Bemus Point is mostly a summer home for people. But while they are here, this is their summer community and they should support its library just as the loyal year-round residents of the village do. The Bemus Point Library began as a women’s group started by Elizabeth Bemus. The Bemus Point Study Club was dedicated to the study of current events. Members were expected to present a “paper” to the group on some subject they had studied. In 1908 the group founded the library in a small building just outside the village. There is a historical marker at the site. In 1965 the library acquired a former garage and fire company meeting hall on Main Street. The study club still exists, meeting from October to May. Now, its sole mission is to support the library. There are only two library staff members, and the library is open Monday, Tuesday, and Friday from 10am-5pm, Wednesday from 1-5pm, Thursday 10am-7pm, and Saturday from 10am-2pm. The Blooms for Books fundraiser is a great way to support the library and brighten up the community.

STBC Distilling Co.
Southern Tier Distilling Company Now Open
By Lou Drago The long anticipated opening of the Southern Tier Brew Company’s new business venture finally happened the weekend of August 1921, 2016. The brainchild of Southern Tier Co-Founders Phin and Sarah DeMink and their business partner and coowner Ross Seeley, Southern Tier Distilling Company opened for business in the Stoneman Business Park, Lakewood, NY. Several years in the making and licensing, the distillery had five spirits available for samples, mixed drinks and for purchase. It was déjà vu all over again. The first time I visited STB was in the very building and same tasting room that I was in Saturday afternoon to sample STD’s first five approved spirits. The distillery tasting room offered several choices to try their wares. They make two kinds of gin, Dry London and Citrus, a Vodka, Aged maple Spirit (ST’s take on rum) and good old American Corn Whiskey. You can get the liquors straight up on a sampler stave, your choice of 4- one oz. shots. They have a variety of mixers so you have many opinions. The day I was there many samplers were being served. The Moscow mules seemed to be the favorite mixed
drink. I had their sampler stave with 4 of the 5 available spirits-- circus flavored gin, vodka, maple spirits (rum) and American corn whiskey. Good flavors, very strong spirits. Bring a DD if you plan on having the sampler to yourself or a second drink. I heartily recommend taking the tour. After seeing how the liquors are made I knew what to look for as I sampled my spirits. The day I was there Jim Waltz, the head distiller, lead the factory tour. He has been with Southern Tier since October, coming from a larger bourbon distillery. He likes the idea of working in a small “craft distillery”, everything here is done by hand from milling the grains used in the various drinks, to pumping the liquids between the brewing, distilling and aging barrels, to the final bottling and labelling stations. They hand char the inside of the oak barrels used to age their whiskey line of products to give them a deeper color and bolder flavors. (Interesting side note the bourbon aging barrels can only be used once to make bourbon. After that they can be used for other liquors. In the future STB can be making a variety of interesting barrel aged beers.) Jim explained Southern Tier Distilling is licensed by New York State as a farm distillery,

which means they purchase as much of their product from local sources as possible. They are proud to support our local farmers and make the spirits using NY grains from Canandaigua. They purchase 40,000 lbs of corn, wheat and rye a month for production. Their vodka is a wheat based neutral spirit, coming in at 100 ABV. They also use this neutral spirit to make their gin products. They are bottling two types of gin...a London Dry and a Citrus. Juniper is the main botanical to give gin it’s character. They macerate the juniper to open the aroma and flavor. Coriander is milled and added along with other background botanicals. The base is 100% wheat that is distilled twice before infusing the botanicals. The citrus gin is flavored by adding orange and lemon to the mash before final distilling. When you sample the citrus gin the orange and lemon favors really come thru. They make a very fine American Whiskey today. It’s 100% NY corn aged on charred white oak and finished in used bourbon barrels that, in a former life once aged maple syrup, for a very smooth, wellrounded whiskey. I enjoyed my sample of this example of corn liquor. They also use these barrels to make an aged maple spirit, a rum spirit made with sorghum. The maple barrels impart a faint maple syrup and makes a very sweet drink. During our tour Jim pointed out two other liquors ready to go. They have made bourdon, slowly aging in 312 oak barrels. They also have 2X Hopped Whiskey a liquor made like the STB 2XIPA. I and looking forward to the day when the state has approved these spirits for a taste.

Beer & Wing Festival
Annual Beer & Wing Festival, This Saturday August 27th
By Kerra Trivieri This Saturday, August 27th will mark the first annual Beer and Wing Festival in Jamestown, New York. The festival will be hosted and sponsored by Jamestown Savings Bank Arena and Media One Group. The event itself was an idea that was sparked from the success of previous events hosted by the arena this past January and May. “The idea also came about because of the great success we had with our Grapes and Hops Festival and the Taste of the Trail Wine Festival,” said Director of Sponsorship Sales Sherry Hutley. Beer and chicken wing connoisseurs will be able to enjoy wing tastings from
various places, such as Wing City and Village Casino, and beer samples in their own commemorative tasting glass. Mouth watering craft beers will be available from Ellicottville Brewing Company, Hamburg Brewing Company, Southern Tier Brewing Company, and more to be announced. “We will have nine different vendors sharing their wing flavors,” Hutley said. “We have also added Four Mile Brewing Company to the list of breweries, which is based out of Olean.” In addition to their beer and wing offerings, the arena will be set up with a celery and blue cheese station with popcorn and Pepsi product giveaways. A DJ and door prizes will also
present during this new and exciting festival. Other participating vendors include Smokin’ Bears Cigars, Clearview Pools, Moosehead Pottery, and many more. Tickets are general admission for the 21 and older crowd and can be purchased online at http:// www.jamestownarena.com/ for $30. Not to be forgotten, designated drivers will also have an opportunity to purchase tickets for $15. Both ticket holders will receive a voucher for five free chicken wings as well. The event will kick off at 1pm on Saturday afternoon and conclude at 5. Jamestown Savings Bank Arena is located at 319 West Third Street.

He said that the July 23, 2016 FLW Outdoors Collegiate Division Tournament offers statistics that help illustrate the economic contribution tournaments provide. That event attracted 64-two person teams from different colleges including Ohio State, Penn State, University of Maine and Michigan State who stayed overnight one or two nights. Robbins said additionally each team included a coach and in some instances family members. He estimated that 250 people
used local restaurants and hotels during the tournament. It also introduced the region to visitors from out of state. Do the arithmetic. Tournaments offer big money to winners. The Penn State Team won the July 23 event of $2,000. The September 24 and 25th, 2016 X Series Championship will attract 100 plus Bass anglers to Chautauqua Lake, and offers a Ranger Z 518 with 150 Mercury Motor as a first prize. The second prize is $10,000. Robbins said that the County reviews the cost/ benefit of tournaments every year. “We evaluate the number of boats and the history of the event’s success annually,” Robbins said. There is another dimension
to the hunting and fishing scene in Chautauqua County and the country than recreation and competition. There are also the outdoor writers. Robbins who authors the Jamestown Post Journal’s “Outside” column every Sunday and writes magazine articles has always enjoyed writing and communications. “The Association of Great Lakes Outdoor Writers will hold their only United States conference at Peek n’ Peak September 12th-15th. Writers from all over the country and Canada will attend, ” Robbins said. He has worked for several years with the Chautauqua County Visitors Bureau to present this conference that includes a dinner at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute.

Building from the Ashes: Keeping Family Tradition Alive
Mike Seagren continues his Mother’s traditions in the kitchen of his LaScala restaurant.
Story and Photo By John Thomas Staff Writer Imagine this scenario. Your family has been in the restaurant business for generations. The restaurant founded by your mother is the place you grew up in, and where your family currently lives. One night you wake up to the smell of smoke. You run downstairs to discover the dining room filled with smoke and the kitchen engulfed in flames. Your wife and child flee outside to safety across the street, and now all you can do is watch the as the smoke turns from gray to black and fire consumes the building. The fire completely destroys the only life you have ever known. “It’s just a building,” he recalls saying at the time. That was eight years ago and it happened to Mike Seagren, owner of LaScala restaurant in Jamestown. But that
building was known as the Old Country House, the restaurant started by his mother, Mona Seagren in 1977. Today we are sitting in his restaurant and banquet facility, converted from the old AmVets building across the street. Looking back Seagren can see that the restaurant business is in his blood. “She (Mom) had a plan from me from the beginning. She kind of groomed me since I was little,” he says. Seagren recalls how she taught him to put cans on the shelf with the label facing out (for quick identification). His mother passed away in 2006. The fire that destroyed her restaurant was in 2008. The next year Seagren bought the former Amvets building and converted it to LaScala. “We went from small to big,” he adds now. Mr. Seagren has kept up with the traditions and family recipes honored by his mother. The restaurant, named for the famous opera house in Italy,
is a large facility that has four private rooms that can be rented for private parties, graduations, and weddings. The main dining room and bar seats about 60 and is decorated in dark woods and chandlers: a traditional yet informal look for an Italian restaurant. It allows the establishment to appeal to folks looking for fine dining and yet won’t discourage families. As Mr. Seagren says, “We want to be family friendly but also elegant.” He describes his approach to the food at LaScala as, “fast food fine dining.” To that end the menu features items from “Create your own Pasta,” for $9.95. Diners choose the pasta from: Spaghetti, Linguini, Fettuccine and Penne. Then they chose the sauce from Marinara, Meat, and Garlic Herb. Finally, they chose a topping: Chicken, Mushroom, Sausage, and Shrimp. Other entrees go from $13.49 for Eggplant Parmesan to Filet Mignon for $42.95. Seafood and chicken dishes round out the menu. But LaScala is known primarily for Prime Rib. Seagren has developed his own technique to create a Prime Rib unlike any found elsewhere. Unlike most places that buy pre-aged meat, he buys his fresh and uses a specially developed “wet” aging technique on the premises. That way he says the meat stays fresher and juicer. Then he uses a propriety spice blend and slow roasts the meat in special ovens to cook the meat “to perfection,” as he says. From the ashes of his mother’s dream, Mike Seagren has built upon the family traditions. LaScala is open Tuesday through Sunday for dinner starting at 4:30. You can call them at 716-6647534.

The Practical Intuitive
In the Garden:
Vicki Wagoner – The Practical Intuitive Many people feel that taking care of others is far more important that taking care of themselves. Why? Because they feel taking care of oneself is selfish. I used to think so too until I began on my spiritual path of selfawareness, self-worth and self-love. Years ago I attended T. Harv Eker’s The Millionaire’s Mind Enlightened Warrior week long retreat in upstate New York. I had some amazing experiences that helped further shift outdated misconceptions from childhood abuse by my father. And, since he lived a short distance away in Schenectady, I knew it was time for another one of our “talks” in order to do some more tweaking of our relationship. As Dad sat in his favorite chair, I began rubbing his neuropathic feet because I knew he would be a “captive” audience. For four hours I did most of the talking because there were things that I needed to say and I wanted him to hear. After some resistance and several attempts to “escape”, Dad said, “Thank you for helping me see my life
from a different perspective.” We reached another level of understanding and mutual respect. By focusing on what I had to do for me, we both benefited. A few days later I was guided to buy a simple $20 gold band at Walmart. It’s a priceless symbolic reminder that I must love and appreciate myself first so that I can then share that feeling with others. It’s what I call the Boomerang Affect or, Karma - “What goes around comes around”! Here are some ideas that I hope you will incorporate into your life to remind yourself that you must take care of you in order to take care of others! • Read books, blogs, magazine or online articles that challenge, inspire and empower you. • Sign up for online webinar classes that resonate with you. • Attend local Meet Up groups, workshops, yoga or meditation classes. Participate in a weekend or week long personal retreat. • Express yourself - We all have something interesting, inspiring and important to say. Speak it! If verbal conversation seems challenging, write it down or type it out. Use your voice through painting, crafting, photography, singing or dancing. • Celebrate “small” accomplishments Celebrating big accomplishments is a given - “Employee of the Year”. Celebrating little things is the foundation that builds selfrespect and self-love. For example, celebrate organizing the closet; making that long overdue phone call; or, you cooked dinner three times this week. (If I did that my
husband would be doing his happy dance!) • “Thank you!” - We say “thank you” to others all the time. Start saying “thank you” to the part of you that takes such good care of you because you’re still here - “Thank you for taking time to relax”. • Ask for assistance – How many times have you said, “I don’t want to bother anyone for help”? People like to help if given the chance. It makes them feel good and you get more comfortable with receiving, which you deserve! • Pamper Yourself - Create time to do things you enjoy and make you feel special – get an ice cream cone; take a nap in the middle of the afternoon; get up before the kids to enjoy your coffee and read; take a walk in the woods. • Be your own BBF - Many of us tend to treat others better than we treat ourselves. If your best friend got an award or needed a hug, you would be their biggest cheerleader or greatest source of comfort. Be your own best friend! Congratulate yourself often, be kind if you fumble and remind yourself all will be ok if you are hurting. • Have a symbolic remembrance – whether it’s inspirational quote written on a sticky note, a rock, feather or a simple gold ring, let it be a reminder that YOU MATTER!

~ August Delights~
By Linda K.Yates ~ President Jamestown NY Garden Club The Annabelle hydrangeas have now turned from off white to a limey green while the larger shrub hydrangeas Limelight and Tardiva and the PG (Paniculata Gradiflora) trees are just now coming on in their lovely blousy ivory panicles. The sedums Autumn Joy are budded up tightly in a shade of pale green and in the shape of little trees. There is one single Casa Blanca lily waving goodbye from her float; long live the Queen. I have just counted seven to eight different shades of pink Phlox and there are many white ones and even an almost purple one. These are definitely the stalwarts of the late August borders. The bee balms have gone to seed and are no longer blooming, but the coneflowers are taking up the slack. The trumpet vine (Campsis) has finished
The Ipomoea (Morning Glories) are truly in their glory
blooming but has produced huge beanlike seedpods. The Morning Glories are truly in their glory now. It is their time! The velvety trumpets are a regal deep purple facing upwards to the heavens. I take ridiculous joy in them. They are all volunteers from last year and the year before. The Echinacea (cone flowers) have daisy-like flowers with satiny pink petals with a rust orange center with green deep inside the cone. The bees and butterflies love them immensely. There are just a few random orange tiger lilies dotted around the gardens like exclamation points! The perfect symmetry of their Turks cap petals is simply alluring. The all white Moon garden was a bit of a flop this year but is starting to straighten out a bit now that the white phlox are coming on. The urn in the center is a nice focal
point and worth it’s weight in gold. A nice combination of plants in an urn is a great distraction from some garden flaws, and can be somewhat controlled a little better. I really enjoy the urns all summer and especially now as the plants have matured. The urn in the white garden has elephant ears with Caladiums, Acidanthera, (Orchid Gladioli) and purple passion as the trailing vine. The urn in the formal garden has an ornamental cabbage, caladiums, an exotic flowering pepper plant, variegated English Ivy, Purple Verbena, a trailing succulent vine and a trailing Blackie (Sweet Potato) vine. They make wonderful eye catching and/or distracting centerpieces. A lot of the late summer foliage is heart shaped.

Date Night with Tara:
Recipes from Across the World: Fattoush & Humus
I am Tara Jungquist a world traveling healthy foodie from the Chautauqua Area. My best friend and I celebrated finishing our jobs in Kuwait with a trip to Petra, Jordan which is a Middle Eastern version of the Grand Canyon. We vacationed in a small town called, Madaba famous for a large Byzantine-era mosaic map of the Holy Land, BC. My best friend aka ‘trip budget nazis’ booked a hostel with a traditional breakfast provided. Up to this point, I wasn’t fond of Arabic food despite having grown up in the Middle East. Starving after hiking all day to a breathtaking view, the High Point of Sacrifice in Petra, we had nothing to eat but those snacks. This time when I tasted the tart freshness of the Fattoush and the creamy savoriness of the Humus, I saw hearts. Upon moving back to states, I couldn’t find Arabic restaurants that compared. My sister hunted down authentic family recipes from her Lebanese friend, adapted to right.
Ingredients: • 3/4 cup Italian parsley, roughly chopped • 3/4 cup mint, roughly chopped • 1/4 cup Romaine lettuce, roughly chopped • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped • 1 Radish, thinly sliced • 1 English cucumber, quartered • 1 tsp/ to taste Sumac, tart flavored berry (Food hack: Can be found at specialty grocery st ore.) • 2 tablespoons olive oil; 1&1/2 lemon, juiced; 1&1/2 garlic cloves, finely minced • 2 small pita bread, cubed and toasted with olive oil
Olivia Barone: Keeping Chautauqua Tradition Alive
Instructions: Step 1/ Cut pita bread into cubes and drizzle with olive oil on a baking tray. Toast in oven at 350 degrees. Step 2/ Chop and combine mint, Italian parsley, onion, tomatoes, romaine lettuce, and cucumbers. Step 3/ Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Toss with salad to combine. Add toasted pita. Step 4/ Add salt, pepper, and sumac to taste. Garnish salad with radish slices. Serving: Can be done an hour ahead and best eaten the day made.

Story and Photo By John Thomas, Staff Writer
The first question most people ask Olivia Barone is how does a young linguist, teaching French at Jamestown Community College, come to run the Englewood bed and breakfast in the Chautauqua Institution? It would help to know that she is a fourth generation Chautauquian; her parents brought her there when she was a little girl, and her mother’s parents attended before them. They would Authentic Humus (Dip or Spread) stay in a small apartment on (Serves 6) Nutrition Facts (per serving): 219 Calories the grounds. But her parents were looking for an excuse to Ingredients: Amazon.com.) stay at the institution full time. • 1 can of chickpeas • 1 lemon, juiced and 1&1/2 So, in 1982 they bought the • 1/2 cup water and 1 ice cloves of garlic cottage that now houses the cube (Food Hack: Ice cube • Kosher salt, to taste B&B.

Each summer Use the brand Al Wadi, Al since then the cottage has Akhdar Tahini, try if you See “RECIPE” Page B7 been filled with loyal guests
who mostly return year after year. “You have to make people want to come back,” is Barone’s secret for enticing people to return to her B&B every year. For her, that means building bonds among the guests and herself. The front porch is a favorite gathering place; “There’s community, there’s food, there’s coffee, everybody’s talking to each other, and by the end of the week, we’re having discussions. There’s camaraderie; there’s joy.” As we converse on the deck, the music from the amphitheater drifts down the street in front of the cottage. The feeling of being truly part of the Chautauqua experience is unmistakable. At times that connection can be very close. Barone tells me how for three years, Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward stayed at the Englewood while

their daughter was dancing with the Chautauqua Ballet. Because the house is close to the “Amp”, sometimes the speakers will walk by. She has chatted with Bobby McFerrin, and seen the likes of essayist Roger Rosenblatt, and novelist Ann Patchett. “I was sweeping the porch one day when (actress) Andie McDowell walked right in and asked me for directions.” Being immersed in an organization that encourages forward thinking has its effects. For the continental breakfast she serves, Barone uses only “local organic and sustainable foods, big bowls of fruit, and gluten-free, organic cereals. Everything is high quality.” All paper products within the house are made from recycled materials, and she composts about ten pounds of waste per week. Anything that can be recycled is, and she buys only American-made towels and sheets for the nine guest rooms. “We’re and ecofriendly house,” she says with a distinct note of pride in her voice. Offseason Ms. Barone has a house in Mayville and resumes her teaching at JCC. The guesthouse is not insulated, so it can’t be used for winter quarters. This year she will be obtaining her doctorate in French. But it’s clear her heart belongs inside the gates of Chautauqua. As she says, “The guest house is really the center. We’re feeling the heartbeat.” For information about the Englewood Guest House call Olivia Barone at 518-4956808

Architectural Spotlight The Resort on Main, Weekly Rentals Downtown Bemus Point
Story and Photos By John Thomas, Staff Writer Chautauqua Lake has its share of history from the first wooden boats to ply its waters, to the Stow Ferry and the Casino. Life around the lake has evolved with the times. A current example of that evolution is 33 Main Street, The Resort on Main. The Bemus family had built the cottage in the 1920’s and
the Proctor family owned it for a long time. Last year, Janine and Gordon Phillips purchased the property and decided to transform it into a rental house. The transformation began last October. The home had great potential; however, was in need of many improvements. From top to bottom, the wiring was completely replaced, new windows were installed, ceilings were refinished and the beautiful
hardwood floors restored. The kitchen underwent the greatest transformation. Walls were removed; therefore, opening up the kitchen into the dining room. All new cabinets, Quartz countertops and appliances were added to transform the kitchen. By May of this year, the metamorphosis was complete. The result is a comfortable and modern home that still reflects the relaxed lifestyle of the lake. Now the resort on Main is

open for families to rent. It’s a weekly rental and available from May-September, with the turnover day on Saturday. October – April, the property is available for a four-night minimum stay. The Resort on Main is within walking distance to a boat dock, entertainment, restaurants and shopping. However, the home is quiet and relaxing enough guests may not want to leave. While sitting in the front parlor, the
bay windows take in the view of the street. The large dining room is great for family gatherings, while gathered around the table or sitting at the countertop. The spacious and attractive kitchen is well designed and will make any meal preparation easy. There are five bedrooms and two baths; enough space that two families could easily share the rental. There are two covered porches for relaxing and taking in the sights and
sounds of Bemus Point. The property has it’s own driveway for private parking. The resort is a short drive to Ellicottville, famous for Holiday Valley Ski Resort, Chautauqua Institution, and within walking distance to the Bemus Bay Pops. “ A little something for everyone in all seasons.” For more information, contact Janine at (716) 969-7489 or visit www.theresortonmain. com.
