The clans are gathering to the
sound of pipes for the Jamestown
Regional Celtic Festival next
Saturday on August 22. Six pipe
bands from the tri-state area will
play well-known tunes separately
and as a single massed band at the
Jamestown Community College
Campus.
The festival was started four years
ago, and is similar to the highland
games, minus the competition
aspect.
“We didn’t want a competition,
we just wanted time for the bands to
play,” said Doug Clark, a member
of the 96th Highlander Pipes and
Drums which hosts the festival.
Six pipe and drum bands, and seven
clans are attending the festival this
year. Each of the bands will perform
individually throughout the day
and in the afternoon and evening.
Throughout the festival, they will
also play as massed bands.
Next Saturday, pipe bands from the tri-state area will play well-known tunes separately and as a single massed
band. The festival started four years ago and is similar to the Highland Games, minus the competition.

Jamestown’s Landmark Figure
Skating Competition to be Held This
Weekend
Jamestown’s landmark figure skating
competition Skate Chautauqua will be
held this weekend, August 14-15, 2009
at the Jamestown Savings Bank Ice
Arena. This is the annual event that has
given Jamestown a stellar reputation
for producing figure skating events.
Skate Chautauqua has presented
countless National Champions,
National Medalists, International
Medalists, World and Olympic
competitors. Sarah Hughes, 2002
Olympic Champion skated to victory
at Skate Chautauqua in 1997 and
always says that Jamestown is where
her ‘winning streak’ began. Miki
Ando, 2007 World Champion, won
gold medals at Skate Chautauqua just 3
years ago in 2005. Kimmie Meissner,
2006 World Champion, skated to gold
medals at Skate Chautauqua in 2002
and Jennifer Kirk, the 2000 Junior
World Champion was a winner in
Jamestown in 1998.
Who will you see August 14 & 15
at the JSB Ice Arena? You never
know! Can you pick the next Olympic
Champion from the line up? It’s quite
likely a champion will again skate here
this year.
Skate Chautauqua has been the catalyst
that has allowed Jamestown Skating
Club and Jamestown to win the bids
to present the 2005 U.S. Junior Figure
Skating Championships and the 2009,
2007 and 2004 North Atlantic Regional
Figure Skating Championships. All of
this greatly contributes to the economic
development of the Jamestown/
Chautauqua area – and Skate
Chautauqua is proud to make these
major contributions to the community.
The Skating Academy and Jamestown
Skating Club have given Jamestown
a reputation for presenting the highest
level amateur figure skating events
in United States, and as a result have
introduced thousands of visitors to
Jamestown.
The prestige of Skate Chautauqua
can be attributed to the support of the
Jamestown community and volunteers.
Great opportunities are created for
skaters at Skate Chautauqua to be
presented in a professional atmosphere,
be critiqued by World and International
judges, and have valuable interaction
between coaches, judges, and skaters.
The public is welcome to attend Skate
Chautauqua. This year, compliments
of Chautauqua Ice and Jamestown
Savings Bank Ice Arena, admission
to all Skate Chautauqua events is free.
Competition will be held continuously
on Friday August 14 (8am-9pm) and
Saturday August 15 (8am-8pm). Of
special interest will be the IJS (new
judging system) events which will
be held in Rink A both Friday and
Saturday with some of the top US and
International skaters. The IJS events
will be followed by ‘on ice’ critiques
by the National and World Judges and
Technical Specialists.
Skate Chautauqua is presented by
Chautauqua Ice and is sponsored by
Quality Markets, The Post Journal,
Alstar EMS, Warren Times Observer
and WKSN.

When the lights go up on the
SE93’s Chautauqua Lake Idol they
will be shining on some superb
local talent. Shawn Wilder, Kira
Chadwick, and Steve Davis will be
living out a dream shared by more
people than some would care to
admit. The contest started six years
ago in conjunction with the Bemus
Bay Pops concerts and in part due to
the popularity of the American Idol
TV show. “It made sense for us to
celebrate the grand entrance of the
floating stage at Bemus Point with
an event that the local community
could be a part of” says Andrew Hill,
Director of Operations of Media
One Group and Program Director
of radio station SE93. Andrew also
serves as host and producer of the
competition.
About fifty people came to the
audition in May; twelve singers were
chosen to move into the first rounds
Area performers will sing their hearts out for the last of the ever popular lakeside contest.
The public is welcome to attend Skate Cautauqua; admission is free.

The Falcon’s Club is a new development by a father and son team
which is just in the finishing stages of the first set of condos that have
been revamped. The Falcon’s Club, formerly the Falcon’s Nest, sits
down a long swooping drive to unobstructed views of Chautauqua Lake.
The refurbished and updated condos are some of the largest on the lake.

of eliminations. After giving
the first contestants a week
without eliminations to work
out their jitters, and rehearse
some songs the competition
started with performances and
eliminations every Monday
night at the Pops concert
location on Bemus Bay.
As the competition has gone
on contestants have had to
perform up to ten songs over
the summer. The performance
nights were organized around
musical themes, constants
had to work up songs from:
the Beatles, to Andrew Lloyd
Webber, as well as country, and
classic rock. The judges made
comments to the singers and
those are not eliminated went
on to perform the following
week. For the most part the
judges keep their comments to
constructive criticism, unlike
on that TV show, says Andrew,
“Do we have a Simon Cowell
per say? No!”
In talking to finalist Shawn
Wilder, his enthusiasm almost
jumps through the phone,
“I’ve had so much fun! I’m
so happy I’ve gotten this far.”
He goes on, “You have no
idea the feeling, you know,
of being up there in front of
everybody, when everybody
is watching you and your
singing with the band…it’s
just overwhelming.”
The performers chose an
appropriate for the week and
send a copy to John Cross
and the Babalu Band (the
Idol performance band). They
are then given just two run-
throughs of the song with the
band on performance night.
While this might intimidate
another singer Shawn seems
to thrive on it, saying of
the band, “Oh man, they’re
amazing! They’re wonderful
guys. They have fun right
along with you. They make
your song theirs and you
make their song yours…It’s
awesome!”
Shawn admits that some of
the music themes put him out
of his country music comfort
zone, but he appears to have
handled them well. Shawn
sees himself pursuing a career
in country western music
and is considering moving to
Nashville.
Another of the finalists is
Kira Chadwick, who is no
stranger to performing, having
done numerous musical
theatre performances in the
area. She, like Shawn seems
to be having a blast, “I’m just
so happy and thrilled that I
made it to the final three!”
Unlike Shawn, Kira seems to
be happy singing just about
anything, “I like a little hip-
hop, a little country, I love
classic rock, I like anything…I
love show tunes.” But singing
is not in Kira’s career path, as
she plans to be a kindergarten
teacher.
Rather than be competitive
the finalists appear to become
good friends, Kira, her
boyfriend and Shawn have
been known to go out and
sing karaoke together, and
both speak highly of each
other and Steve Davis (I was
unable to contact Steve before
publication). No matter what
happens on Monday night
those that don’t win are sure
to be thrilled for the winner.
No matter what career path
the contestants choose, SE93’s
Chautauqua Lake Idol will
give audiences a glimpse of
future greatness.
Idol
It’s the middle of August
and the living is easy! Perhaps
‘relaxing’ would be a better
choice of words, as life here
really starts to slow down to
a nice little pace about this
time of year. Perhaps it’s the
weather, or the water, or the
happy people who are just so
darned glad to be here. But
one thing’s for sure – if you’re
living or visiting Chautauqua
County right now, you are one
fortunate individual!
After all, we’re blessed
with beautiful lakes,
gorgeous grapes, wonderful
wineries and more culinary
opportunities than you can
possibly tackle in one summer
of overeating. Chautauqua’s
cultural events are quite
literally second to none, and
the resort centers available to
us are truly amazing. But we
try to experience it all anyway,
don’t we?
Well, that’s totally
understandable. Just
remember to have fun, be nice
to those who serve you and
take deep breaths of the clean,
crisp air. It’s just good for your
soul! Until next week… JZ-B
“They’ll come out as
individual units and then
play two tunes together,”
Clark said. The morning
massed band will play the
tunes “Scotland the Brave
and Wings” and “Bonnie
Dundee.” The clans will be
introduced during the massed
band and led off the field by a
solo piper.
“We’re trying something
new,” Clark said about the
evening massed band. The
units will march onto the field
individually, then gather in a
semicircle to play two sets of
tunes (“Green Hills & Battle’s
Ore” followed by “Amazing
Grace”).
The massed bands are an
impressive site and sound,
Clark said. “We get about 100
pipers. It’s pretty cool.”
Although the pipe bands are
the focus of the festival, they
aren’t the only part. Celtic
themed food and vendors
will round out the festival,
along with area Celtic music
and dance groups. The Anita
Mountain Highland Dancers,
from Erie, PA, and the Olean
Area Irish Dancers, from
Olean, NY, will perform,
along with the music groups
Step In Time and Celtic Creek.
Both groups are area husband
and wife teams. Step In Time
brand their music as “Celtic
Eclectic” while Celtic Creek
works to keep the traditional
Celtic styles alive.
The festival also includes
Scottish heavy athletics, such
as the caber toss (tossing
a long, tapered pine log),
hammer and stone throw.
Although the pipe bands won’t
be competing at the festival,
the heavy athletes will be.
“They’re not just amateurs,”
Clark said, “these athletes
are competing for prizes.”
Jamestown is home of The
96th Highlanders Pipes and
Drums, and they represent
Chautauqua county, but the
band includes members from
surrounding areas. They have
competed and performed at
highland games and festivals
in New York, Pennsylvania,
and Canada. The band
has used many of their
performances to raise money
for the families of firefighters,
police, and members of the
military as well as victims of
Hurricane Katrina.

Garden Gone Wild
It’s Lily Time in Lindaland: Stalking, Deadheading, Pruning and Raking is Garden Consultant Linda Yates’ Passion
BY LINDA YATES
Hey! It’s Showtime in Lily
land! The summer show has
finally arrived despite the
unseasonal and exceptionally
rainy weather. The gardens are
aglow with colour even though
it’s overcast. Quick, run out, a
bit of sun! We don’t want to
miss a thing right now. It’s
an incredible palette of every
conceivable colour and texture
so amazing that I cannot take
my eyes off of the scenery.
It’s Lily time in Lindaland I
call it. It is my happy place
no matter what the work load.
Staking, deadheading, pruning
or raking, it is my joy and
passion here.
The chores give time to enjoy
the flowers, to hang out with
the fragrances, to take time
out from the human race and
mingle with Mother Nature
for a while. The rewards are
greater than I ever expected.
It is a gardener’s dreamland
of discovery and delight. It IS
a big show with a new trick
around every corner. Forgotten
flower friends return each
year to greet me, new friends
surprise me; all rise to the
occasion of Show time! ‘The
Queen has arrived’, the Queen
of the gardens that is.
The show offs and the
unmistakable beauties are here.
I tag this title to the Oriental
fragrant tall lilies, especially
the pure white Casa Blanca.
They have their schedule and
show up for their yearly debut.
“We’re here” they proclaim
all fresh and smelling sweet.
So I run out and take photos
of them promptly before they
have their freshness washed
by the unending rain. There
are so many different varieties
and colors and being a Lilium
collector there are a few here.
Let’s take a tour and see what
we encounter. First, a huge
white Oriental with outward
facing petals with tiny maroon
speckles. Next we see a yellow
star, a Citronella Strain,
speckled with black spots, 5
feet in height. Moving along
there is a famous tiger lily
from the far east long known
as L.tigrinum, a Turk’s-cap
flower who is orange with dark
purple spotting and 7 feet tall.
The lilies are accompanied
by many other blooming
perennials, especially lots of
day lilies, phlox and monarda.
There is a lovely tall stand
of Black Beauties who bear
distinctive blooms of deep
maroon-red with a narrow
white edge, green star center
and long protruding anthers,
it’s petals tightly reflexed. It
is nearly shrub-like and long-
lived and multiplies readily
by offsets. It’s a winner! Here
are a half dozen-brandy new
pink 5-foot tall oriental’s
that just opened today and
are looking so fresh. They
have a backdrop of clear pink
hollyhocks and purplish-pink
monarda, so sweet! Through
the arbor we have some
Stargazers mingling with tall
pink anemones robustissimus
and every shade of phlox and
purple-pink coneflowers.
Moving away from the house
and the sun gardens we call
them, we have in the Dawn
Redwood bed the oversized
O.T. (Oriental-Trumpet
hybrids) topping out at nine
feet tall with a dozen blooms
of the palest yellow waxy
flower and so highly fragrant
as to perfume the entire yard.
It’s undoubtedly the perfect
compliment. At the Moon
Garden the stately all white
Casa Blancas and Lilium
auratum reside alongside lots
of shasta daisies, white phlox,
false dragonhead, lobelia and
cleomes. Earlier there are tall
white Trumpet lilies and later
there will be the ultimate and
last to bloom Speciosum lilies.
Speciosum translated means
“good looking,” “showy,”
“splendid” and “brilliant,”
all aptly describing what
many consider to be the most
beautiful of all Oriental lily
species. They actually are the
last to bloom in late August
and early September. Such
a treat. I call them white
butterflies.
Elsewhere in the gardens is
every colour in the spectrum.
All blending beautifully,
all happy together. Behind
the formal garden the royal
purple Gypsy Queen clematis
and the Lavender-blue
General Sikorski clematis are
reblooming. Well gardening
friends, another huge rainstorm
has blown in and toppled lots
of nice specimen plants which
is very disheartening because
we have waited an entire year
for these plants to bloom.
Some staking is in order and
it is still very wet and today
unusually murky and muggy.
A not fun situation for garden
chores.
We seem to be between a
rock and a hard place with
our green thumb endeavors
lately. It’s too wet, rainy,
sultry whatever. Oh well, like
housework it can wait till
later. Let’s have lemonade and
just look at the gardens for a
change; enjoy the colours and
shapes and textures.
Enjoy the moment because that
is all that is guaranteed. And
know that Showtime will also
fleet. Let’s take it all in every
chance we get; take pictures,
make notes and sketches and
journals. It’ll be a marvelous
read in the OFF-season. Linda
Yates is a garden consultant
who also gives tours or her
own spectacular property. She
can be contacted at 716-483-
2668.

kind experience is an unguided
walk (bring a flashlight) that
takes about 45 minutes and
visitors are encouraged to
walk the trails as many times
as they would like. Visitors
start their walk by a small
pond that is illuminated with
numerous colored lights,
including some that change
colors. The trail then enters the
forest via a very smooth trail.
There are benches throughout
the trails, in which visitors
are encouraged to sit, relax
and enjoy seeing the forest
in a different light. Some
installations contain music.
The trail eventually brings
you to a cozy little café in
the woods, where sometimes
you will find a musician or
instrumentalist entertaining
the crowd. There are picnic
benches available and cookies
and coffee served inside the
café. This Saturday, August
15th, folk-rock duo, John and
Mary play at the café. More
entertainment is expected
to be announced in the next
week.

The Falcon’s Club is a new
development by a father and
son team which is just in the
finishing stages of the first
set of condos that have been
revamped.
The Falcon’s Club,
formerly the Falcon’s Nest,
sits down a long swooping
drive to unobstructed views
of Chautauqua Lake. The
refurbished and updated
condos are some of the largest
on the lake. On the expansive
grounds, the new tennis court
is already in place; soon the
rest of the grounds will be
landscaped to “golf course-
like” presence, according to
Donna Breen of Century 21
Turner Brokers. Additionally,
a basketball court for the use
of the condo owners has also
been recently completed.
The owners are in the golf
course business and use this
background and knowledge in
revamping the new landscape
design. This gorgeous piece
of property sits on six hundred
feet of lakefront, with dock in
place.
The project will ultimately
house 16 condos and a few
small cottages. There’s lots of
space to play, both inside and
out. Children will find the site
particularly appealing what
with lots of room for a football
game right on the lake. The
townhomes are on the
Southside of the lake and take
advantage of the spectacular
sunsets that Chautauqua Lake
has to offer. “When finished,
it’s going to be a fantastic
place” said Breen. “the condos
are large and the amenities
are amazing” she said. They
afford the owners privacy and
ease of maintenance. While
homes require maintenance
and constant upkeep, owning
a condo gives the owner
the freedom to come and go
without having to worry about
mowing the lawn or trimming
the hedges. The condominiums
are being fully refurbished and
include hickory floors, granite
counter tops in the kitchen and
bathrooms, high ceilings and
an abundance of space for the
growing family. Each unit is
between 2,700 and 3,500 feet,
giving the homeowners ample
space to lounge. The condos of
the Falcon’s Club Townhomes
are really large by other
standards on the lake. One
doesn’t feel claustrophobic as
you do in many of the lake’s
townhomes. Also, the views
are amazing, looking over the
lawn and onto the lake beyond.
Each unit has a two-car
garage, three bedrooms and
two full baths. They also have
upstairs and downstairs washer
and dryer facilities, which
makes things very convenient
for the homeowner. All the
homes are three stories, with
the first floor including a
rec/media room and garage.
One can picture curling
up with some popcorn and
having the surround sound
filling the room, watching a
good movie on a projection
screen. Upstairs contains an
open floor plan in the ‘great
room’ style, which is ideal
for entertaining with the
kitchen flowing directly into
the living area. A fireplace
completes the coziness of the
living room. Upstairs boasts
vaulted ceilings and skylights
above and the sumptuous
carpet below your feet. The
generously sized master has
two large closets and a well
finished master bath with
dual shower heads and glass
enclosure. The additional
bedrooms are large and airy
and have been painted with
rich colors. Fixtures are high
end as is the quality of the
finish. The condos sat empty
for sometime, but now they are
being updated to their former
glory.The Falcon’s Club is
located just west of the Viking
Trader on the lake’s Southside.
For the family looking for ease
of living, and a large amount
of breathing room right on the
lake, these lakeside condo’s
are a good investment. With
lots of room to play, how can
you go wrong? For more

alongside Julie and Steve
Rockcastle owners of the
Great Blue Heron property.
The well-maintained festival
grounds lend itself perfectly
to the attraction with its ample
parking and smooth trails
through the woods. After two
weeks, organizers are happy
with the response they have
seen. Attendees have been
giving them praise for this
ambitious effort. They also
say that they have received
visitors from Buffalo,
Pittsburgh and other far-
off locales. Night Lights is
aiming to be a complimentary
tourist attraction during the
summer and fall months. For
