    The supermajority of the Chautauqua County Legislature will be Republican as of Jan. 1, while four Democrat incumbents are on their way out. In the new legislature, 13 of 19 legislators are Republican. "We gained a couple of seats which is very important," said Allan Hendrickson, chairman of the Chautauqua County Republican Committee. Article Photos Vince Horrigan and Larry Barmore celebrate their election wins. "We'll be able to do things we weren't able to do before," Hendrickson said, referring to the economy of the county and "expansion of what we have." "We do what we can for the people we...

    Mysterious Group Buys Building Next to Ground Zero For Mosque Wednesday, December 16, 2009 Jim Hoft A mysterous Muslim group with unknown sponsors has purchased a building steps away from Ground Zero. Hudson New York reported: An identified group with unknown sponsors has purchased building steps away from where the WorldTrade Center once stood — to turn it into potentially one of the largest New York City mosques. At the moment the building, the old Burlington Coat Factory, already serves as a mini-mosque: an iron grill lifts every Friday afternoon for a little known Imam leading prayers a few yards...

    Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, chairman of the soi-disant Cordoba Initiative, has gotten all the attention he deserves for his astonishingly insensitive attempt to build a 13-story mosque and community center at the site of Ground Zero. Rauf has largely escaped attention for his efforts to build a sawed-off version of the same on the grounds of the venerable and historically Christian Chautauqua Institution in western New York State. Although the resistance to Rauf at Chautauqua has not made the news, it is deeply felt, and it is coming from both Christians and Jews. As shall be seen, the forced feeding...

    1/18/2008 - MAYVILLE — It only took two members of the Chautauqua County Board of Health to save the coveted waivers that permit a handful of area clubs, businesses and veterans organizations to allow smoking in their establishments. Until Thursday, it was unclear how determined Board of Health members were to eliminate the waivers, which were first distributed after the state’s indoor smoking ban went into effect five years ago, banning the practice in almost all places of business. But motivated by studies that have pointed to significant health benefits in the wake of the smoking ban, board member Marcia...

    By LEWIS SNYDER 9/8/2006 - A trooper died this week. A young, useful, productive member of society — one sworn to help and protect the citizens of New York — died as the result of a gunshot wound. The shooting was very likely the cowardly deed of one Ralph Phillips — an individual who has never done anything useful in his entire life for society. An individual who, in fact, has been nothing but a drain on society since his first arrest all those years ago. I have some questions I would like to ask. To all those who thought...

    FREDONIA, N.Y. - A state police official said Monday that "the noose is tightening" in the manhunt for an escaped inmate accused of a deadly police ambush, and warned hunters to stay out of the woods where the fugitive may be hiding. Hunters in rural and wooded Chautauqua County are "interfering" with the search and face danger from Ralph "Bucky" Phillips and authorities pursuing him, State Police Maj. Michael Manning said. "They can certainly be mistaken for the wrong individual," Manning said. Many officers are scouring the western New York woods for Phillips, the prime suspect in Thursday's ambush of...
