The Arena has done something special with Jets' home games this season, creating an amazing atmosphere for families to experience hockey. They prepare an entire lineup of on and off ice promotions for each game including a kissing spotlight, an on ice slap shots and the most popular with the younger crowd; the guest Zamboni riders of the night.

Jamestown, NY – Planning is underway for the Audubon Center and Sanctuary’s annual Talking Phone Book Snowflake Festival on Saturday, February 5, 2011.

Inside there will be exhibits, children’s crafts, bluebird houses to build, a Chinese auction, programs on owl ecology and birds of prey, face painting, and demonstrations of tapestry weaving and yarn spinning, weaving and dying.

Legal Movies To Entertain Local Viewers

JAMESTOWN – The Robert H. Jackson Center will host a series of films about lawyers this winter starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 19, with a showing of “My Cousin Vinny.”

This 1992 movie stars Joe Pesci as a brash Brooklyn lawyer who recently passed the bar exam on his sixth try. He is now representing his cousin and a friend, who have been arrested for capital murder. Fred Gwynne plays Judge Chamberlain Haller, and Marisa Tomei won an Oscar for best supporting actress.

The comedy runs 119 minutes and is rated R.

The seven titles to be shown at the Jackson Center were chosen from a list of the top 25 legal movies put together by the American Bar Association.

“In each one, the action, issues and characters are explored in the context of a legal trial,” said Gregory L. Peterson, president and former chairman of the board for the Robert H. Jackson Center.
