While I am glad someone likes living here..you didn't mention my reason for staying..lol. The weather here is safer than almost anywhere else in America. We don't have (yet) forest fires, mud slides, hurricanes, few if any tornadoes, temps of over 100 degrees, and few floods. Excusing the normal sunset bay and forestville and now joined by Brocton..hey..at least Dunkirk is still pretty safe. Next time..simplify your long windedness.

Hey lindsay and judeye, here is the biggest mystery of all, besides life. How does the world we know and live in , decribed as Newtonian (after Isaac Newton)arise from the world of quantum physics, where probability rules.You activists are stuck in the observable world. The real world arises from the invisible,werner von heisenberg world. hey judeye, you might know this. No man has seen god at any time. This is not nano technology spoken by the ancient prophets, but a description of the worlds actual foundation.The ancients knew this, but our modern libs are thoroughly confused. You activists kind of missed this as it is a bit more difficult to understand.support your public school libs, get that graduation rate lower !

hey lindsay and judeye, i wondered why I never heard of berry even with a 1500 book library. A flaming liberal ! he is saving the planet. I read what i could on the net. He is awash in feel good stuff, does not know the true meaning of nuclear physics, dislikes coal, etc !. Wow, just more crazy ideas from the left. Judeye and Lindsay, if thats all you read, no wonders you are confused . I love confused people ! Rutherford left his parents farm, good thing he did. Hs science accomplishments changed the world. berry would still be down on the farm. we need the farm, but we need deeper thinkers like Rutherford. Save the planet gals ! I cant wait to see you try.

Lindsay, dont fall into the Ida tarbell trap or host of other activists who want to stop progress. The people I learned from, all guys had this one trait. You idolize berry, they genuflected before portraits of the great inventors. Yes grown men genuflecting and even shedding a tear , no joke, for the privilige of knowing the greatest minds in history. besides that they made great money and everyone purchased their chemical goodies. So long live the refineries, petrochem and the great minds that built them and run them. Nary a woman in the bunch. farming ?, thank fritz Haber whose chemist wife suicided, after a period of depression . Good ole Fritz, bread from air. Golly machines are great, eh lindsay ? Even a cow is a fabulous chemical plant . Living walking, ruminating, making protein and expelling my favorite stuff, methane , hydrocarbons. No wonders the libs hate them.

Lindsay, you will never win me over to the politics of want and ration. farming is honorable and better than darn near everything our govt does. You read your stuff, i have read the lives of the great inventors, tesla, schockley, Curie, rutherford etc. Want only entered their lives as they wanted to eliminate it. Oh, I forgot one of my favorites, John D Rockefeller and Std Oil. Think of the pioneer women who simply burnt the trees for the ashes . It was the cash crop. the timber was not the valuable item. Industry gave us the world we got. It saved the whale and the forest.Golly, I love chemicals and electricity. If it aint hydrogenated or carcinogenic, it generally is no good. Without life, chemistry and my beloved hydrocarbons would be impossible.

Hey you guys, it's Lindsay. Thank you so much everyone for the feedback. It really means a lot to me and I love to hear the things you share that were sparked by reading the articles. And Steiner, sweetie, good for you for your cautious skepticism. You keep reading and by golly, I will win you over if it's the last thing I do! :p Thanks again, to all.

This is a great part of the state and a great part of the country. One of the last bastions of freedom in a state overrun with liberal drivel and rights-infringing legislation. With some clear thinking and intelligent guidance from local leadership it could remain that way for years.

Very Nice Job!

Yes we have much to be proud of in this area.

“...And we pray, not for new earth or heaven, but to be quiet in heart, and in eye clear. What we need is here.” ? Wendell Berry

By the way, also enjoy Roo Haven and its owners.

Keep up the great job of writing inspiring articles that remind us all of what is truly important in life.

Nice job,Lindsay! Loved the imagery and the way you describe what we take for granted. You bring this area alive and make me realize how good we have it. Keep up the good work; you got it, kid!

(con't) could be here again. So much so, that they are in the process of looking for their own home with property in northern Chaut. County! And it's so good to see houses in this area selling right now they way they are. I haven't seen houses sitting on the market very long here lately, and that tells me that maybe people are realizing the uniqueness and simply choosing to stay. I know of a few young graduates hope to find jobs here to stay local. And while I hope to see that one day, too, I also hope that our leaders realize we have to do in in a way to preserve the things that keep many from moving away and even some to come back.

Wonderful article, Lindsay! And I found every word contained in your article inspiring! And I can relate. You see, my husband and I - like so many of the youth in this area - moved away for "greener pastures". We were gone for about 4 years. I will never forget our last visit to my husband's mother's house that fateful 4th of July. He spend the morning working on her yard. Something we could never do in the grassless and concrete dominated courtyard that we shared with the 40 other residents of our apartment complex in DC. That 4th of July, it hit me. The simple life is the happiest life. And life can be simply wonderful here in our beautiful Chautauqua County. So, 2 years, 2000 sq. ft. and 7 acres later, we find our weekends are spent much different weeding, planting and pruning. We enjoy every minute. And it has to be contagious. I am so happy to say that my parents during their very own visit from NC to our home for the Memorial Day holiday realized how simply happy they

hey Lindsay, I think you are still depressed ! Rationing ahead for America ? Only if the dumbocrats have their way and stifle new productivity. we were supposed to run out of oil and gas , but thanks to fracking we are increasing production big time. You read too much liberal drivel, not suprising as you are a young woman. Young women flock to the democratic party as they seem to always need help.Dont worry Lindsay, guys like this poster will and have invented things for plenty in life. Scarcity only exists in the darkened mind of a liberal. witness Obamas war on carbon, he is bound and deternimed to bring back cold and want, to save the planet ! He is just another clueless liberal, knowing nothing of science.
