Food and items such as cowboy hats and stick horses will be for sale. Fireworks will take place right after each show, except for the one on Sunday.

Don't get me wrong. I've never met a funnel cake or bratwurst I didn't like and I still can't resist a man in lederhosen; but if you're looking for something completely different from the oom-pah bands and contests involving small children and greased pigs, I've got a great suggestion. Check out one of the annual Seneca Nation pow wows this July. It's an opportunity to learn about our area's oldest native culture and have a lot of fun in the process. The Seneca Nation is one of the original Five Nations of the Haudenosaunee or Iroquois Confederacy which boasts a democratic government that pre-dates the United States Constitution. Haudenosaunee means "People of the Longhouse and is comprised of chiefs from the Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida, and Mohawk. This union was later expanded to include the Tuscarora, becoming the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy. At the time of the formation of the Iroquois League, the original five nations See Seneca Pow Wow page 4 The Ellicottville Central School Board of Education elected Roger Spell as its president and Connie Hellwig as its vice president July 3 during the board's reorganizational meeting. The board also re-elected Spell to a one-year term as a board member and elected Aimee Kilby to a five-year term on the board. The board made numerous other appointments and policies that evening and posted its 2012-13 Board of Education regular meetings schedule, (see page 7). Mark Ward gave the superintendent's report, in which he discussed a recent visit to the West Valley Demo Center. During that meeting with Brian Bauer and Paul Bemba, Ward explored developing a relationship with the center as a possible career path for students. "We would be remiss if we didn't look into it," said Ward. "It is possible that the center will be in operation for many many years to come." Ward also reported on summer training opportunities, SLO's (student learning objectives) and attending the School Board Conference October 25-27 in Rochester. See Board of Education page 7 By Jeff Cole Five hours of power are simply not enough for an upcoming bicycling race at Holiday Valley's Mountain Sports Center. The 13th annual 6 Hours of Power will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 15 at Holiday Valley's worldclass 10-mile course and will feature cyclists from all around the country. Cyclists competing in a solo and two-person tag-team mountain bike race format will attempt to complete the most laps in order to land within the race's winner circle, which means cash, trophies, prizes or a combination of these. To participate, cyclists can preregister or by enter the day of the race.

I have to say that I have never enjoyed a concert series more than the Ellicottville Summer Music Festival last weekend held right here in our own back yard. Holiday Valley and the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce deserve big kudos for throwing one of the best parties of the summer and possibly the year. It was perfect! I grew up in Southern California in the 70's and so I've been fortunate to have seen some really great concerts in some equally great outdoor venues. The School House ski run/Number 1 fairway at Holiday Valley provides one of the best outdoor concert venues ever. You'd have to try really hard to find a spot on the hill to spread your blanket and enjoy the contents of your cooler without having a good view of the stage. Even better, you don't need to wear shoulder pads or a helmet to make your way safely to the nearest portable "facilities" or concession stand...and the scenery is BEAUTIFUL! Sister Hazel kicked off the festival on Friday evening and it's easy to understand why Hollywood has used their music in several box office hits over the past fifteen years. I love their tight harmonies and pithy lyrics. My personal favorite was "Everybody Needs a Go To Karaoke Song". They got that right. The Buffalo Philharmonic on Saturday night was nothing short of fabulous. There was something in their program for every musical taste. Associate Conductor M a t t h e w Kraemer threw everything from Cole Porter to Tc h a i k o v s k y into the musical pot, added a little Ray Charles and Motown for spice and stirred. The result was delicious. What could be better than listening to a live performance of the 1812 Overture while watching one of the most spectacular fireworks displays in the history of the world? Sunday on the hill with The Guess Who was like spending an evening reminiscing with old friends, especially for those of us who grew up with their music in the late 60's and early 70's.

The weather, music and other FUN stuff were wonderful. Our Chamber of Commerce and local clubs really did an excellent job of putting together the very fine entertainment we got to experience. Thanks go to all of you. Hopefully, the July weather we just had will stay with us for a while, so we may continue to enjoy the out-door good times that have been such a neat part of visiting and living here in Ellicottville.

Also remember, The Gin Mill serves their excellent, yet reasonably priced, menu till midnight on weekends. Saturday's music parade begins at 6:00 PM with "Only Humen" an Ellicottville veteran and favorite band performing in Balloons. "Only Humen", is an excellent three-piece, FUN, classic rock band with Frank, on bass, Jon on guitar and Rick, The Animal, on drums. This excellent band will be doing what they do best, which is performing wonderful classic rock from the seventies, eighties and beyond in a way that will have a Humenizing effect on the music loving Balloons Crowd. Following "Only Humen" "DJ Flakey or Chatty Frank Watson", Ellicottville's Party Monster, will take over from Balloons Sound & Light Booth. Frank, a resident of "The Disoriented DJ Home", will, as always, keep the party going with his danceable tunes, and FUN chatter till close. Returning to 7:00 PM Saturday, "Acoustic Kuk" will be entertaining The Patrons of The Silver Fox with his neat, acoustic version of many singer/songwriter tunes from the last four or five decades. Kuk's music is always up lifting and done in his unique, audience friendly and entertaining style. This will be a great Silver Fox Music Show. Then at 9:00 PM Saturday, "Roll The Dice" will be ROCKIN The Gin Mill with another really FUN music show. As most of us know, this is a retro to classic rock band that includes Ellicottville's Freddie Joseph. Their music consists of most everything from The Rock A Billy era through the eighties and also includes a bit of a country sound. They are FUN and will create another Super Saturday Music Night in The Gin Mill. After a quiet unwind Sunday we move to Monday beginning in The Gin Mill with their "All U Can Eat Spaghetti Dinner" for only $6.99. The first music of the new week, "Brews & Bluegrass", will begin at 6:30 PM Monday in The Ellicottville Brewing Company featuring music by "The Blue Mule Band".

One mustn't forget that this is the home state of Warren Buffett. That said, it is truly part of what we call "the heartland." And despite the diversity of business and the dynamic cities, it is this part that I find the most interesting and appealing. You can head east through Nebraska shortly after passing Cheyenne, Wyoming. Then it's Sydney, and North Platte and Kearney with a long stretch to Omaha of almost 500 miles from Cheyenne. Through most of this I-80 is within view as the Lincoln appears to be in its shadow. As you roll along the line about every 15 or 20 miles you pass through a small town. All that remains are a few worn out buildings and the all important grain elevators. As they did in the early part of the 20th century farmers deliver their corn and wheat to be weighed and loaded on passing trains. The hopper cars move east to processing plants. And between these towns there is often nothing but endless rows of corn and wheat, squared off by giant trees planted to shield the wind in the 1930's. In fact, if not for a few telephone poles and the giant sycamores, the landscape looks as it must have over 100 years ago. If you are inclined to be a traveler rather than a tourist (travelers are there for the journey, tourists are there for the destination) you can stop your car and get out. This is the heartland. You can see it, smell it and feel it. This is where immigrants from Europe were drawn based on advertisements describing warm weather year round and 12 month growing seasons. Here is where these rugged and brave people from Sweden and Norway came and dedicated themselves to carving a life. They worked hard in the short hot summers and endured the bitter winters. And somehow they managed to tame a wild country. No one in my family came from this area yet it feels as close to `home' as anywhere else. Then you can jump back on the Lincoln and take in more of the heartland. Actually, it's the heart and soul land. Until next time..... www.ellicottvilletimes.com Friday July 6, 2012 While recently rereading John Steinbeck's dust bowl masterpiece, the "Grapes of Wrath" I came across his famous reference to Route 66. Actually, there is an entire chapter dedicated to the road and the path to California. Steinbeck called it "the mother road. The road of flight." The "Mother Road" tag stuck and it is often referred to as such. The road also became known as the "Main Street of America." This phrase, however did not originate with Steinbeck. This was originally used to describe the Lincoln Highway which was built two decades before `66' in 1913. The Lincoln Highway originates at Times Square, in New York City and ends at the San Francisco Bay Bridge. There are over 3,000 miles of road passing through New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada and California. This great road still exists and still winds its snaky two lanes across America. It's not a straight line but a series of curves and turns that cut through the east, the heartland and the west. The English poet William Blake wrote, "Improvement makes straight roads; but crooked roads are genius." The Lincoln Highway began at a time before there were dedicated Federal highway funds and four decades before Eisenhower's massive Interstate Building program of the 1950's. It all started with an idea from Indiana businessman and founder of the Indianapolis Speedway, Carl Fisher. He pitched his idea of a "coast to coast rock highway" to other businessmen, particularly in the fledging automobile industry. His approach was simple: build it and they will come. And they will have to purchase an automobile to do that. One of his major supporters was Henry Joy, president of the Packard Motor Company. In fact it was his idea to name the road after President Lincoln. This was a decade before the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC would be dedicated. Not all of his colleagues were in favor and willing to contribute to its construction. Henry Ford was opposed to this idea. Although he certainly No Permanent Address by Tom Naples firstname.lastname@example.org liked the idea of a coast to coast highway, he felt that if it were to be built with private funds the government would always expect the private sector to build and maintain roads. Despite his objections the Lincoln Highway did get built. It remained "The Lincoln" until the late 1920's when the country converted to a number system for highway identification. Before that there was the Jackson Highway, Bankhead Highway, National Old Trails Road, the Dixie Highway and many more. The majority of the `Lincoln' became I-30 with a few pieces merged into US 50 and US 1. Recently, thanks to the interest of the Lincoln Highway Preservation Society red white and blue signs and markers labeled with the original name appear across the long stretch of blacktop. For many years the road enjoyed heavy traffic on its original two lanes. Along the way were countless diners, gas stations, and even an elephant museum and a restaurant shaped like a coffee pot. (Both of these are in Pennsylvania) Today, Interstate 80, a modern four lane road runs parallel to it and seems to have replaced it as a main thoroughfare, particularly in the west. It is the same way I-40 runs next to old 66 for many miles from Texas to California. I have been on some long sections of this road and have never been disappointed with the sights, the small towns and the people. What seems surprising to a lot of people is that my favorite stretch is through Nebraska. Yes, Nebraska. Now most people in the east think that everyone in the cornhusker state wears old overalls, a straw hat and is never too far from a pitchfork. Nebraska is really not like that. Although corn and wheat production are a major part of the state's economy cities Seneca Pow Wow Cont. From Front Page occupied large areas of land in Southeastern Canada and the Northeastern United States. The Seneca occupied territory that stretched throughout the Finger Lakes area in Central New York, and into the Genesee Valley in Western New York. The Seneca people call themselves O-non-dowa-gah, (pronounced: Oh-n'owndough-wahgah) or "Great Hill People. Like the other Iroquois tribes, they lived in longhouses, which were long, narrow bark-covered dwellings that housed several families from the same clan. There are eight Seneca clans, each named for a different animal. They are the Bear, Beaver, Turtle, Wolf, Deer, Hawk, Heron, and Snipe. Clan membership is passed on to children through their mothers. The Seneca Nation of Indians currently has a total enrolled population of nearly 8,000. Pow wows originated with the indigenous Native American tribes of the American West. They began as cultural festivals akin to county fairs that brought several different tribes together to meet, celebrate and compete. The general program has changed very little over the years. This year there are two local pow wows associated with the Seneca Nation. The first pow wow is sponsored by Iroquois Post 1587 and runs from July 1315 at the new Cattaraugus Community Center at 12767 Route 438 in Irving, NY 14081. The theme this year is "Honor All Veterans". Bud Thompson, co-chair of the Iroquois Post 1587 Veterans Pow Wow said Photo submitted by that. "This reflects the Seneca Nancy Scott people's deep respect and appreciation for all veterans, both native and non-native." The theme makes this pow wow really special. There will be color guards from all over the country as well as the opportunity to honor family American flags and our local veterans. Several different Native American Tribes will participate in The "Seneca Pow Wow 2012" which will be held July 21-22 at Veteran's Park on Broad Street in Salamanca, NY. Both events will feature drum and dance competitions as well as traditional, food and craft vendors, educational exhibits, competitive western style and smoke dances as well as drum competitions. I can't think of a better way to enjoy a beautiful summer weekend than soaking up some local culture and honoring our veterans. Hope to see you there! Summer Music Festival CONT.

A 16" variance for the parking lot setback, and 2.) a People Prefer Pets to Other People? NO! you organically-grown flax seeds. I hope that did not sound too personal or somewhat bitter, but I am not the only one who concluded a long time ago that a family member who drinks from a dish on the floor is a lot more reliable than the tall one drinking from the bottle. When Jonathan Swift's Gulliver returned to England after travelling the globe and meeting the world's complete range of human beings, some the size of his thumb and some the size of the C.N. Tower, he ... moved out of the house he shared with his wife and ... into the shed with his horse. Why? "Because a horse is a horse, of course, of course. And no one can talk to a horse of course. That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mr. Ed." (Sorry but sometimes in order to get through social functions I'll fantasize about playing `one potato, two potato' in the barn with Northern Dancer.) According to the Edmonton Journal, the study also revealed that 53% of Canadian owners find their pets more trustworthy than people. And while 99% of Canadians talk to their pets, 33% have confided deep secrets to their four-legged friends. (That's probably because when their two-legged friends hear the confession they might feel morally obligated to call the police.) I'm waiting for the survey that asks people about their preferences of children versus pets. I'm guessing the results will prove to be a better birth control device than abstinence. The survey went on to detail a list of pet and owner interactions including using their beloved critters and confidantes, matchmakers, personal trainers and even therapists. I'm not sure about that last one. I think that if you truly believe Shania Twain is sending you secret, telepathic sex messages and begging you to come live with her in Switzerland ... well, Drooling Ol' Gus might just shrug but you, sir, should really seek professional help. Instead of Purina spending Horse Resource Fund Cont. From Page 4 their job or gets divorced, the horses are the last concern," Ms. Widger noted. "Our thought in creating Horse Resource was to provide a network that could help. We would match people with resources to people and horses without." According to Ms. Widger Horse Resource has helped find homes for more than a dozen area horses and has assisted the SPCA in Cattaraugus County with many others. "Some of our first horses to rehome were the result of a call from my veterinarian," said Ms. Widger. "She had a client who could no longer care for her horses and we had them in loving homes within a week." As a 501(c)(3) public foundation CRCF will receive donations on behalf of Horse Resource, allowing donors' gifts to be tax deductible. The Foundation will issue grants from the Horse Resource Fund for the purchase of feed and other related needs for rescued horses. Donations to the Horse Resource Fund can be made in care of the Community Foundation at 120 North Union Street, Olean, and online at www.cattfoundation. org.

By William Thomas money on surveys to confirm the obvious, maybe they should just read that letter from a motel owner that's been circulating among pet lovers for at least 20 years. Apocryphal perhaps, but no statement on the behavior of people and pets has ever come close to nailing it like this one. As the story goes, a man wrote a letter to a small American motel he planned to stay at on his annual two-day drive to Florida in the fall. "I have stayed at your lovely little motel many times in the past but now I have a dog. We're kind of inseparable and I was wondering if he too could stay at your motel. My dog is clean, well-groomed and very well-behaved. I know this is a lot to ask but would you be willing to let him stay in the room with me for one night?" The motel owner's reply was swift and to the point. "I've been operating this motel for over 30 years. In all that time, I've never had a dog steal towels, linens, silverware or paintings off the wall. I've never had to call the cops to remove a dog from my premises in the middle of the night for being drunk and disorderly. And no, I've never had a dog take off without paying the bill. So, yes, indeed your dog is more than welcome to stay at my motel. And if the dog will vouch for you, you can stay as well." Only arrogance prevents us from admitting that pets are better beings than people. The privilege is ours. www.horse-resource.org. Interior & Exterior Wash, Dry & Wax A recent study conducted by Harris/Decima and commissioned by Purina concluded that Canadian pet owners prefer to socially interact with their pets rather than other people. Well, imagine that! Human beings in this country would rather hang out with domesticated animals instead of friends and family! Shocking! Are you telling me that you prefer to sit there with Tabatha on your lap who's chucking you under your chin with her paw and purring so loud she almost drowns out the lunatic next door who's playing "Ba Ba Ba, Ba Barbara Ann" at 88 decibels to prove to the neighbourhood he's got even worst taste in music than the guy who went deaf listening to Metallica? You're not saying you'd rather wrestle with Sparky on the living room rug than watch teenagers speed by your house throwing empty beer cans on the lawn? Because if you're saying you prefer pets to people that is a clear violation of human rights � that is, the right of a man to stand too close to you in line at the supermarket, reeking of cigarette smoke and without being asked, regaling you in the highlights of his latest moose hunting trip to Cochrane. A human preference of pets over real talking and upright walking people!?! Really? Exactly how icky have humans become when they place second in a popularity contest to creatures who have fleas and poop in your flower bed?

On 4.5 acres, in Catt/LV District. 8 Min from EVL � CPR/AED/First Aid Infant/Child/Adult � NYS Inspected � � CACFP (Food Program) � Health and Safety � � Background Check � Elementary Principal Connie Poulin discussed a summer six-week special-education program under contract with BOCES, so that school buses and minivans will be seen "out and about". Bob Miller, high school principal, gave an update on summer school attendance, which is down from 20 students last year to five to 10 this summer. He presented regents results and compared them to 2011, detailing sciences, social studies, mathematics and English in three categories: Pass with 65 percent, Pass with 85 percent and Pass with 90 percent. Fifteen more students took the exam this year. Students in the 65 percent pass category had an overall decline of 2 percent. Students in the 85 percent pass category had an overall decline of 13 percent, with an increase of 22 percent in science and a decrease of 40 percent in English. Students in the 90 percent-plus pass Sheep Show; Miniature Horse Pull at 1 p.m.; Miniature Horse Show at 3:30 p.m.; Cat Show at 6:30 p.m. (Entertainment Pavillion) Aug. 2 - Junior Department and Open Class Beef Show (Master Showman to Follow) at 9 a.m.; Rabbit/Cavy Showmanship at 9 a.m.; Dog Knowledge Test at 5 p.m.; Dog Obedience Test at 6 p.m. Aug. 3 - All Breed Horse Show at 8:30 a.m.; Grand Championship Livestock Showman Contest at 10:30 a.m.; Barnyard Olympics at 2 p.m. Aug. 4 - Open Class Dairy Show (Colored Breeds) at 8:30 a.m.; All Breeds Horse Show at 8:30 a.m.; Market Animal Sale at 1 p.m. Aug. 5 - All Breeds Horse Show at 8:30 a.m. Fair-goers might also enjoy going on any or all of the fair's 21 rides, including the Cliff Hanger, the Flying Bobs and the Zipper. As for her hopes for this year's fair, Ms. Charlesworth said that they are probably the same as always: that it's successful, everyone's safe and .. that we don't have much rain. She said the fair's hometown feeling and all-around value are what keep people coming back. "We have a lot of local vendors and a lot of 4-H and agriculture but then we have big-name entertainers and monster truck shows and motor events, so it kind of spans from every angle," she said. This article is the first in a series of stories that The Ellicottville Times will run on the Cattaraugus County Fair. Next week's fair article will focus on musical entertainment and grandstand events. category had an overall decline of 2 percent, again showing a strong increase in science (31 percent), but a decrease of 34 percent in English. Miller also presented a report on an algebra pilot program initiated by ECS Teacher Melissa Reedy. She developed a pre-algebra program for the 2010-11 school, followed by algebra in the 2011-12 school year, which showed a significant improvement in test results. A test group of 10 students scored in the below-65 percent range in 2010, then showed score results averaging in the upper 70s after completing the pre-algebra/algebra program in 2012. Miller commended Reedy's initiative in creating the program and ECS may be sharing the program with other schools. The next meeting of the newly elected Board of Education will be at 7:30 p.m. July 31 in the ECS high school library.

Summerfest Photos by Ron Kubicki Page 8 (716) 699-4062 Ellicottville Times www.ellicottvilletimes.com Friday July 6, 2012 By Barbara Kozlowski, Master Gardener What gardening season we have had so far! Early warm weather in March, heavy snow in April, May and June with a mixed bag and now July's heat. Have to love Western New York. We should glad we didn't receive the nasty rains and winds that occurred to the south of us. If you are at all like me, I'm checking on my new plantings in the vegetable garden daily. I check to see if watering is necessary, if any harmful pest are devouring my plants and of course pulling any weeds that have sprouted overnight. So far, so good! Controlling garden pests is almost a full time job unless you did some companion planting to encourage the beneficial insects and discourage the harmful ones. When you are checking your plants, take a bucket of soapy water to drop any harmful insects in. But try identify the insect so the beneficial insects are not the ones ending up in the bucket. Weeds are also garden `pests'. Mulching or pulling them on a regular basis will stop them from robbing your plants of the nutrients in the soil. Weeds should not be pulled from `bonedry' soil. This can effect any moisture in the soil. Water first, then gently tug at the weed to insure getting the whole root, shake the soil back into the garden and compost the rest. Now that we see more and more flowers appearing, remember to `deadhead' - remove spent flowers - to encourage longer flowering and/or repeat flowering. This works especially well with annuals but perennials benefit from `deadheading' also. You don't have to wait until flowers are spent, cut flowers for a lovely bouquet for your porch or to share with friends. Our lawns are taking a beating with the hot, dry weather. Unless you are able to deep water your lawn frequently - a good inch or more - keep the grass a little longer. The longer grass will protect the roots from drying out. Grass is a cool weather crop and will go dormant during periods of little to no rain or watering and excessive heat. When the rains and cooler weather return, your grass will again begin to grow. WEDNESDAY IN THE ARBORETUM begins on July 11th at 7 pm. The schedule for these informative sessions appears in this paper and we look forward to seeing you there. Also, the Master Gardeners will have plants available for our `Picka-Plant'. This is a fund raiser for future Master Gardener programs like GARDENING DAY in the Spring.

"Saturday's Pet Parade" � Ellicottville Times Photos Lawrence, who runs www. heartrateup.com, which hosts 6 Hours of Power among numerous other outdoor athletic events throughout the year in Western New York, said 6 Hours of Power is a unique and appealing event because it promotes performance, endurance and pure power of any mountain biker. "It's the racer against himself or herself, 10-mile laps of some of the most manicured and demanding single track on the east coast, a spectrum of talent from several surrounding states and Canada and a positive vibe second to few in the industry," he said. Our volunteers, local shops and national sponsors pour their hearts into 6 Hours of Power and we are happy to have the support of a terrific venue such as Holiday Valley," he said. Classes for solo cyclists are based on age and include under-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49 or 50-andup. Male, female and coed teams will compete in one of three combined-age groups: under-30, 31-45 or 46-and-up. Single- speed cyclists riding solo or with a team will not be divided into age groups. With all bikes in the racks at 9:45 a.m., cyclsists will begin the race with an 1/8th-of-amile LeMans-style running start then retrieve their bikes and continue on the course. According to www.heartrateup.com, the first water station will be at mile three, which has a short recovery section that leads to "a beautiful and challenging singletrack haven on state land. The second water station includes "another recovery area and flat gravel section that lets riders recover for the trip back down the mountain to the transition area." At the transition area, riders must dismount and walk their bikes through the timing area, where their lap times will be recorded. Riders can then rest, eat or hydrate and proceed on the course through the 4 p.m. cutoff time. Cyclists can set up their pit areas just beyond the transition area from 6-8 p.m. or at 7 a.m. on race day. The race will officially end at 6 p.m. In addition to the race, 6 Hours of Power will feature a post-race pasta party at 4:30 p.m., door prizes and awards, the latter of which will be presented as follows: Overall solo male, solo female and overall team winners will receive cash, trophies and prizes. Trophies will be awarded three-deep in all age groups (male and female), plus a product prize for firstplace in each solo group. Trophies will also be awarded three-deep in the male, female, co-ed and single-speed divisions and a product prize will be presented to the firstplace winner of each. Mr. Lawrence said that heartrateup.com is luck and proud to keep the tradition alive and to work feverishly to host a practical, supportive and demanding endurance event. "Our volunteers, local shops and national sponsors pour their hearts into 6 Hours of Power and we are happy to have the support of a terrific venue such as Holiday Valley," he said.
