highs and lows Some of the best, worst of the week

Here are some of the best — and worst — of the week:


LIGHTHOUSE ON SCREEN — Tonight is the world premiere of “Widow’s Point” starring actor Craig Sheffer. The movie by Fredonia native Gregory Lamberson was partly filmed at the Dunkirk Lighthouse. The movie will be shown during the Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival, but if you can’t make tonight’s 7 p.m. screening, the Fredonia Opera House will be playing it Sept. 13.

COCKAIGNE TO HAVE SKIING — We’re not trying to rush the end of summer by any means, but it looks like skiing will finally return to the Cherry Creek area. Cockaigne Resort reopened last year but did not offer skiing. The owners expect to have skiing offered this winter. It will give us something to look forward to once the snow falls.

COACHING TWO — A lot of high school students play both baseball and football. For Chautauqua Lake students, their coach will remain the same. Fredonia native Bryan Bongiovanni has been appointed the head coach for both football and baseball for the upcoming year. We wish him the best and hope the students he coaches benefit from it.


WHAT’S NEXT? — With the advent of our expanded weekend edition that begins on Aug. 31, the “Highs and Lows” column will be retired. However, we will beginning an online-only feature that will be posted Sundays headlined the “Sunday shoutout.” We will celebrate achievements by an individual or community each week. You can find the new feature, starting Sept. 1, at www.observertoday.com under the OBSERVER’s View
