12 Feb 20180Jamestown, N.Y. – When Willow Fodor joined Audubon Community Nature Center’s Board of Directors recently, she learned that one of her responsibilities would be to help with fund raising.
Then Fodor had an idea: She could prepare dinners before the GreenUp Jamestown Events planned for St. Luke’s Episcopal Church on February 28, March 7, 14 and 28, and May 2.
As Fodor explained, “Catering the GreenUp Jamestown events while supporting Audubon combines two of my passions: Food and Nature. I recently joined the Audubon board and was excited to learn that one of our initiatives this year will be looking for ways to use our time and...

22 Jan 20181When Clem Worosz was a kid growing up in Dunkirk in the 1940s, he found his way to South Roberts Road — the west side of the avenue to be exact — where there was a large tree. Nailed to it was a bushel basket, sans backboard.
The width of the road was the court.
A basketball career was born.
