HIGHS AND LOWS: Some of the best, worst of the week
Here are some of the best — and worst — of the week:
MUSIC ON THE PIER — Well the pier won’t exactly be available all summer, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be good music in Dunkirk. Some of this year’s concerts will take place at Memorial Park. The city may also move the weekly concert to Point Gratiot or Wright Park. But wherever they move it, we’re sure there’s going to be a crowd.
JAMESTOWN GOES NFL — Good luck to Jamestown’s Stephen Carlson. The Princeton graduate who played tight end has signed with the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent. It’s the first time we’ve had someone from Chautauqua County sign with an NFL team since Clymer’s Jehuu Caulcrick, who last played for the NFL in 2011. Buffalo is far and away the most popular team in Chautauqua County, but Cleveland might be number 2. We wish him the best.
TURKEY TIME — Deer season is the most popular hunting sport but turkey might be the second. Spring turkey season began May 1. We encourage all hunters to use caution and advise the public to stay out of the woods in the mornings, when the season is in full swing. Any hunters who have success are invited to contact outdoor columnist Gene Pauszek Wednesdays and Saturdays at 366-3000. He’s always looking for good stories and photos to share.
OLD TICKETS — A box of old speeding tickets that was found in Stockton and turned over to the state is still causing headaches. Residents are getting notifications about the tickets 27 years later. The state should simply put a limit on speeding tickets, that after say three or five years, if they haven’t been processed and it’s not the drivers’ faults, the charges are automatically dropped. People are getting notified that they haven’t addressed these tickets and it clearly wasn’t their fault. Put a policy in place and be done with it.
