BATAVIA, NY – Batavia Downs Casino begins 64th season of live, harness racing on Monday, July 26. Pacers and trotters will meet at America’s Oldest Lighted Harness Track for 72 exciting dates of racing.

The 2010 season features a new post time of 6:40 for all evening races. Three matinees will take place on Aug. 29, Sept. 6 and Oct. 11, each with a post time of 1:15. For all racing promotional giveaways and handicapping contests, patrons may begin swiping their Player’s Club cards at 5 p.m. at the Players Club.

“The new 6:40 post time is designed to be more convenient for our patrons,” says Michael D. Kane, vice president of operations and live racing at Batavia Downs Casino.  “The new time should also increase the nightly handle, especially in the early races."

New for the 2010 season is a Pick 6 wager on races 7-12 with a $2 minimum. The Pick 6 will start out with a guaranteed pool of $1,000. Based on past popularity of Batavia Downs Casino’s annual Pick 6 Contest, the new nightly Pick 6 wager is sure to be a hit with race fans.

“We are excited about the new Pick 6 and believe it will be a nice addition for our patrons,” Kane said.

Also new this season is a fourth Daily Double. The Late Late Daily Double for races 10-11 has been added to the wagering menu. This will be in addition to the previous Early Daily Double (races 1 & 2), Mid Daily Double (races 4 & 5), and the Late Daily Double (races 8 & 9).

The Batavia Rotary Club has partnered with World Vision’s Get a Kick Out of Sharing, a nation-wide effort to acquire 250,000 new and gently used soccer balls for children in need world-wide.

Batavia Rotary Clubs’ contribution of 500 new soccer balls and 50 hand pumps will be on their way to poverty stricken areas of South Africa, Nigeria, El Salvador, Mexico and American Samoa.  “Given the numerous benefits of physical activity, the popularity of soccer world-wide and the satisfaction that comes from learning and playing soccer, the Batavia Rotary Club is pleased to collaborate with a reputable organization committed to helping children and their communities reach their full potential,” stated Ted Hawley, Batavia Rotary Club president.

 Children love soccer.  But many of the world’s children live in poverty and have never played with a real toy-let alone a real soccer ball.  Instead, they play with balls made of rags, leaves or wads of plastic tied together by strings.  Play is an essential part of childhood.  With World Cup play underway in South Africa, the timing couldn’t be better for a donation of 500 soccer balls to nations world-wide.

The Batavia Concert Band’s 86th anniversary season of music-making and free public concerts begins tonight at 7 in Batavia’s Centennial Park.

Additional concerts and parades will feature the band at other locations and times, including Batavia’s popular July 4 Picnic in the Park at Trigon Park in Le Roy.

The Batavia Concert Band’s repertoire is wide-ranging in origin, period and style: Sousa-style marches, Broadway show tunes, classical adaptations, fun songs for kids of all ages, big-band and swing numbers, popular songs from hit musicals and movies, rock favorites arranged for concert band -- and everything in between.

The band consists of 40 to 60 or so brass, woodwind and percussion players ranging from talented local high school students to 60-year veterans. Many have professional experience, and the rest are advanced amateur musicians. All love to play.

The conductor’s podium will be shared this season by veterans Wayne Burlison, Jane Haggett, Phil Briatico, Brad Meholick, Bob Pastecki and Keven McLaud. Derek Reiss and Dizzy again cap this year’s Concerts in the Park on Aug. 11, as a benefit fundraiser for the Batavia Concert Band.

Founded in the early 1920s, the Batavia Concert Band has brought musical pleasure to the region every year except during WWII. It currently enjoys financial support from GO-ART!, concert sponsors, program advertisers and individual patrons.

The band also sponsors a “Taste of Western New York” gift-certificate raffle from selected area restaurants, 50-50 raffles at every concert, bake sales and other low-key fundraisers.

Regular season concerts are at 7:00pm, Wednesdays, in Centennial Park (in case of rain, in the Genesee County Nursing Home).

All concerts are free to the public of all ages. Light refreshments are usually available. Bring the family, some friends, lawn chairs or a blanket… and enjoy!

The Batavia Rotary Club announced today that it has pledged $100,000 to United Memorial Medical Center (UMMC), to be fulfilled over a five-year period.

“The Batavia Rotary Club has a rich history of generous donations to critical community partners such as UMMC,” said President Ted Hawley. “Our members spend countless hours on fundraising activities and events; the Father’s Day Fly-In Breakfast is the most recent example..."

Today's pledge comes a year after the club made its final payment on another multi-year pledge to UMMC, which totaled $250,000.

The momentum for the latest donation plan stems from UMMC's announcement in October about the surgical expansion project in front of the hospital at 127 North St., Batavia. The project includes a one-story addition to the front of the main hospital building. A total of five operating rooms will double in size from 300 to 600 square feet, plus there will be one treatment room and 19 private recovery beds.

In addition to annual scholarships, the Batavia Rotary Club contributes money to many youth and human service organizations in Genesee County, as well as to international projects. For example, each year, Rotary selects three high school seniors -- one from Batavia High School, BOCES and Notre Dame -- to receive a $1,500 annual scholarship for each of the four years the recipient is in college.

Genesee Community College Professor of Biology Maureen Leupold and Assistant Professor of History Garth Swanson, were selected to participate in the annual reading and scoring of the College Board's Advanced Placement (AP) Examinations earlier this month.

College instructors must apply to the College Board and are then invited to participate. Instructors must be teaching a college-level course in the subject they are reading in order to qualify.

Each year, the AP program gives more than 1.5 million capable high school students an opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses and examinations. Based on their exam performance, successful students can receive credit and/or advanced placement when they enter college.

More than 2.9 million examinations from more than 30 AP courses were evaluated by more than 10,000 AP readers from universities and high schools. Representing many of the finest academic institutions in the world, these educators came from the United States, Canada and abroad.

Leupold traveled to Kansas City, Mo., to grade AP biology exams, while Swanson traveled to Kentucky to grade AP history exams. This was Leupold's first opportunity to be a part of the reading. Swanson has participated in the reading component four times.

Jerry Kozlowski has been named associate vice president for Workforce Development at Genesee Community College. He has been serving at the dean of The BEST Center at Genesee, which provides consultation, training and advice for local businesses.

He begins his new position July 1 and will assume greater responsibility for administering customized workforce-development programming. He will also oversee strategic and tactical planning in the growth of workforce-development services.

Kozlowski began his tenure at Genesee Community College in 2000 as a faculty member in the business department. In 2002, he helped found, develop and serve as dean of The BEST Center, (Business Employee Skills Training). In 2004, he assumed the managerial role of Genesee's network of campus centers, which included the construction and opening of a sixth location in Lima last October.

As dean of The BEST centers, he oversaw academic programs in the four-county GLOW region (Genesee, Livingston, Orleans and Wyoming) and supervised a staff of more than 30. This area of responsibility accounts for approximately one-quarter of the college's total enrollment.

"At all community colleges, workforce development has become a key and expected component of the community college's mission," said college President Stuart Steiner, Ph.D. "Our Board and local sponsors have certainly praised us for our success in this area, and we have the hope and expectation that we can continue to build on that success. Jerry is the ideal candidate to meet those new goals and secure the future success of The BEST Center."

Kozlowski was the recipient of the prestigious State University of New York Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Professional Service for academic year 2005 - 2006 in recognition of his consistent leadership and outreach activities.

He's a member of the Leadership Genesee Class of 2004 and serves on the following boards: New York State liaison for the American Association of Community Colleges; member-at-large, GLOW Workforce Investment Board; member, Genesee County Empire Zone Board; member, Genesee County Economic Development Center (GCEDC) Economic Development Focus Group; and vice chair on the Board of Directors for the Genesee County Chamber of Commerce.

He is also a former business columnist for The Batavia Daily News.

Kozlowski is a resident of Clarence Center and is an adjunct graduate school professor for Medaille College, a former executive of Tops Markets, Inc., and a retired officer of the Air Force with 25 years of service as a commander, instructor, speechwriter and program manager.

Genesee Community College's picture book was recently honored in New York City, earning a pair of top honors in the 2010 Communicator Awards.

Each year, they recognize creative excellence in advertising, corporate communications, public relations and identity work for print, video, interactive and audio. The competition is one of the largest of its kind in the world, drawing more than 9,000 entries annually.

"We strive, as I think every college does, to put our best foot forward in showcasing our campus," said Virginia Taylor, Ph.D, Genesee's vice president for student and enrollment services. "But to be judged as excellent in this regard by such a distinguished group is flattering and humbling."

The picture book is the college's flagship publication for traditional student recruitment. It received the international competition's highest accolade, the Award for Excellence, in two categories.

In the Communicator Awards' brochure/viewbook category, the college was one of only seven Award for Excellence recipients. In the brochure/photography category, only Genesee and the pioneering aerospace corporation Lockheed Martin won.

"I'm particularly pleased that our photography received acclaim because everyone featured in the picture book was a Genesee student when we shot the pictures for it, said College Recruitment Communications Specialist Hal Legg, who developed the publication.

"The success of the piece depended completely upon their commitment to it. This award is really for them, and they certainly deserve it."

The International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA) hosts and judges the competition. It is an assembly of industry leaders from various disciplines of the visual arts. Membership in the academy is by invitation only and includes creative professionals from companies such as Yahoo!, Disney, HBO, Polo Ralph Lauren, Condé Nast, MTV, Coach, Estee Lauder,, Victoria's Secret and Wired.

"We were once again amazed at the high level of work we received for this year's Communicator Awards," noted IAVA Director Linda Day. "Our entrants always seem to find new and creative ways to push the envelope of possibilities across all mediums."

Winning twice at the Communicator Awards adds to the picture book's critical success. In April, it received a Platinum Award at the Hermes Creative Awards, hosted in Arlington, Texas, by the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals.

The college faculty and staff are grateful for the recognition that these awards bring.

"Our campus and what goes on here is such fantastic subject matter," Legg said. "While a lot of work went into this project, I think this (accolade) is just as much a reflection of the college's vibrancy. What comes through in the picture book, I think, is the energy of the people and the place."

Here are some highlights from the June 7 meeting of the Genesee Community College Board of Trustees. It:

Approved a $261,150 change order for renovating the existing Batavia Campus tennis courts. The original tennis court work, planned as part of the recent athletic facility upgrade project, was put on hold until the remainder of the work was successfully completed.

Heard Nominating Committee member Glenn R. Morton report that the committee is recommending that Trustee Charles R. Ruffino serve as chair for the 2010-2011 year; Maureen Torrey Marshall, vice chair; and Diane D. Torcello, secretary. The board will elect officers at its July 19 annual meeting.

Also, Taylor reported that 270 area high school seniors had enrolled in Genesee courses this summer through the Genesee Promise Plus program, up from the 255 high school seniors who enrolled last year. She noted that high school seniors still have almost a month to register for courses, so the number of seniors participating in courses this year will probably be higher than 270.

Heard Director of Development and External Affairs Richard Ensman report that cumulative gifts to the Genesee Community College Foundation between 1985 -- the year it was established -- and 2010, totaled $8.82 million.

Last week, the Genesee Community College Board of Trustees approved $852,900 in contracts for the construction of a new art gallery at the Batavia campus, subject to review and approval by the architects for the project.

Low bidders winning the Board's approval were: Steve General Contractor, Inc., of Caledonia -- general construction ($590,000 base bid and $648,000 total bid with allowances); T. Bell Construction Corp., of Rochester -- mechanical ($112,700 base bid and $122,700 total bid with allowances); Thurston Dudek LLC, of Ontario -- plumbing and fire protection ($43,200 base bid and $53,200 total bid with allowances); and Concord Electric Corp., of Rochester -- electrical ($107,000 base bid and $117,000 total bid with allowances).

The art gallery will be located east of the existing Genesee Center for the Arts lobby. The one-story gallery will have about 1,700 square feet of exhibit space, as well as storage and work space.

The gallery will house modular walls which can be used to accommodate a wide variety of exhibits, including visual works, sculpture, ceramics and other media. The gallery will be built with "smart technology," which will make new media and web-based exhibits possible.

The new gallery will be used for student instruction, as well as exhibits of work by students and artists throughout the region. The college has formed a community advisory committee to help develop policies for the new gallery and involve area arts organizations in exhibits.

The art gallery was designed by Joy, McCoola & Zilch, of Glens Falls, award-winning architects for colleges and universities throughout the northeastern United States. The firm also designed the Wolcott J. Humphrey III Student Union and the Conable Technology Building, which won a juried award for excellence from the American Institute of Architects. Target date for completion of the facility is late October.

The new art gallery will add an exciting new dimension to the college and a new opportunity for community outreach, President Stuart Steiner said.

"Throughout the College's history, we have taught the fine arts and exhibited artistic works as best we could," he said. "But our exhibit space has been very limited. A professionally designed gallery, with modern and secure exhibit space, will be a wonderful resource for our students, our region's arts community, and residents of our region."

The gallery is being financed with funding from the State University of New York Construction Fund, and gifts from the Genesee Community College Foundation and Genesee Community College Association.

Three Genesee Community College instructors will embark on an English language collaboration program in Sao Paulo, Brazil this summer.

They will travel to the South American country to teach English to students at FATEC Americana, a state-run, technology-based institution. Those traveling abroad include
Charley Boyd, English professor, Connie Boyd, director of the Human Services program and Susan Drexel, Sociology assistant professor.

They will travel to Brazil July 8 to 26 to teach language as well as to share information about culture, history and geography. The collaboration between Brazilian students and American instructors will allow for a dialogue to discuss the differences and similarities between the two cultures.

Instructors will focus on topics that contrast the two cultures' holidays, climates, history, current events, politics, job seeking as well as cultural elements such as music and

The collaboration grew out of an initial visit to Genesee from Osvaldo Succi, International Relations advisor and Rafael Ferreira Alves, Ph.D, director at FATEC-Americana in October 2009.

"We seemed to click from the very first meeting and the relationship has strengthened as a result of weekly online meetings," said James Goodwin, director of Curriculum Development at Genesee.

"This relationship between Genesee Community College and FATEC is the ideal way to engage teachers and students alike, not only to learn about another culture but to learn about a particularly diverse one," Goodwin said.

"Brazilians have a reputation for being happy, enthusiastic and high-spirited and the warmth we have experienced so far affirms a culture very much centered on relationships."

Brazil has a very exciting schedule over the next six years with the 2014 Soccer World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games. With the success of this partnership between Genesee and FATEC, the two institutions hope to build on each other's strengths and cultivate a longstanding multi-cultural relationship.
