Concord Senior Center to celebrate 3rd anniversary Saturday By Kellen M. Quigley A staple in the Springville community for three years now, the Concord Senior Center will celebrate its third anniversary this Saturday with a special open house. From 4 to 6 p.m. on Aug. 17, all are welcome to visit the center at 40 Commerce Drive in Springville to see all that the seniors are up to, enjoy some treats and hear live music. Director Eleanor Eschborn has been at the senior for two of those three years the center has been around, which she said went by fast. In that time, seeing all the people each week has been her favorite part. “See how far we’ve

come from one day a week with lunch, and now we have it four and five,” she said. “We’re busy all the time, we’re starting night things and we’re always open to ideas of anything new.” The Concord Senior Center opened Aug. 1, 2016, but the history of the seniors meeting in the community extends back several decades. The Concord Senior Club had been in existence for about 60 years and had been looking for a new place to meet for a number of years. Eschborn said for a while they had met at the Concord Town Hall, where in the winter it was too cold and in the summer too hot. During this time, the Stay Fit Nutrition lunches

were served at the Salaam Lutheran Church. For about seven years, former Town Supervisor Gary Illapito and the town board had worked on building a new center for the community. It was eventually put before town residents with a vote and was approved. When the new center began, Eschorn said “they really didn’t develop anything at first. I think we’re developing things that people want.” Although named the Concord Senior Center, she said people from many neighboring communities stop by. “We get people from Ashford, Otto, East Otto, Boston, Gowanda and Photo by Morgan Bonn Sardinia,” she said. “We The Concord Senior Center is celebrating its third anniversary this weekend and is get a whole variety.” inviting the public to stop down and see all that the center offers to the community.

Concord Town Board sets Reed visits West Valley site upcoming budget session times to view results of funds By Kellen M. Quigley

Photo submitted Bryan Bower (left), U.S. Department of Energy director at the West Valley Demonstration Project site speaks with U.S. Rep. Tom Reed, R-Corning, during at site tour Tuesday.

By Rick Miller U.S. Rep. Tom Reed, R-Corning, visited the West Valley Demonstration Project Tuesday, saying it helps justify his support for the nuclear cleanup. “They wanted to show

us the results of what $75 million a year for seven years looks like,” Reed said after what has become an annual tour. “To see firsthand the results of the investments is very helpful for me,” the Southern Tier congressman said.

The former vitrification facility that helped convert 600,000 gallons of highly radioactive liquid waste into 275 glass logs is among the facilities that have been removed. Reed said he also likes to meet with and thank See Reed page 4

The August meeting for the Concord Town Board was a relatively quiet one. When accepting the monthly reports, Town Supervisor Clyde Drake said the code enforcement officer is doing a great job, and the dog control officer had to serve 11 summons in the past month and is also working hard. From the courts reports, Drake said the town received over $17,000 from both judges from fines in the past month. He said at a recent town supervisors meeting, fines revenues are decreasing in the bigger towns, but in Concord things have remained about the same. “I don’t know if they’re writing less tickets, but it’s a trend we have to keep in mind,” Drake said. In the Highway Superintendent’s Report, Dennis Dains provided the town board with

his breakdown of the proposed Erie County Plow Contract amounts for the three years. Dains also provided a breakdown for the contract with the removal of Fowlerville Road, which runs between Trevett Road and Springville Boston Road. “Erie County Highway plows both Trevett and Springville Boston roads and would be able to do Fowlerville Road very easily as it intersects both roads,” he said. “Fowlerville Road is very rough with patching only done annually, and it’s not always done every year by the county.” The length of Fowlerville Road is 0.42 miles and the town was being paid by the county per lane mile which is 0.84 miles. When the freeze-thaw cycle comes in the winter months, the road always breaks up, making it harder to plow, Dains said. Damage could

result on the town’s plow equipment and truck chassis. “This past winter, we had spring and main plow repairs from damage caused by the condition of Belscher Road,” he said. “It caused damage to Truck #14 to the tune of $1,600 in parts and inhouse shop labor of $800 to repair the main plow and springs.” Prior to signing a new plow contract with the county for the next three years, Dains recommended the town opt out of plowing Fowlerville Road. The board approved a resolution authorizing Dains to write a letter informing the county that’s what the town plans to do. “I think it would behoove the board to opt out of that and save us some money on repairs,” he added. Additionally, Dains said the county highway See Meeting page 6

A Look Back: The Travels of Edgar Spaulding – Part 1 By Jolene Hawkins

Looking back in our archives, I was delighted to find that Edgar Spaulding — a local man and one of the photographers here in Springville — recalls his Motor Camping trip that he and his family went on in 1926. So let us begin his journal… I (Edgar Spaulding) have been on the road some seven months, covering over 5,000 miles and have pitched out our tent in fourteen States. We have slept in a house possible seven or eight times. Motor camping has not

been particularly popular in the east, so many believe it is a dog’s life and that all who camp are really bums. We have been out in sunshine and in storm, dry and wet, both cold and warm and in this time, not one of us have had a sick day. A cold is practically unknown among campers. Our appetites, never poor, are something wonderful now. “But what do you do when it rains?” is asked. Rain is not the bug bear that most people think. Campers do not mind the wet. They are not uncomfortable. A good tent does not leak, even after several days of rain. The trouble all is, that when it rains, there

is nothing, absolutely nothing to do. It is for this reason that most campers, when on the road and it rains, pack up and move to the next stop. The one perfect tent for the motor camper is the umbrella tent. They have plenty of head room, are water and mildew proof and can be set up or taken down in ten minutes by one person. The so called auto-tent are no good. They lack head room and are difficult to set up even when there are two in the party to do the work. Our outfit may be of interest and I will give you the list … all of this strange as it may seem being carried on the car together with three passengers and a cat.

We had 1 9 X 9 foot umbrella tent, including poles and stakes, 1 canvas for covering the car, 1 Kamp Kook gasoline stove (large), 1 Kamp Kook gasoline stove (small), 1 oven for the same, 1 gasoline lantern, 1 electric light and shade to attach to the car, 1 candle lamp, 38 pieces aluminum ware all of which packs into a 8 quart kettle, 1 folding cot, 1 folding double bed, 1 folding table, 1 refrigerator basket, 3 folding chairs, 13 blankets, 1 pack basket of establish can stuff, bacon, etc., 2 canvas cases filled with clothes, 3 cameras, 1 Boy Scout axe, 1 trench spade, 1 canvas water pail, 2 wash dishes, See A Look Back page 2

Celebrate summer at ASP’s annual Beach Party By Deb Everts Pack up the family and spend a fun summer evening at Allegany State Park’s 11th annual Beach Party on Friday, Aug. 16 from 3 to 10 p.m. at the Red House Beach area. The event kicks off at 3 p.m. with a showcase of local vendors and organizations sponsored by the Seneca-Salamanca Chamber of Commerce. Visitors will have the opportunity to check out the many great products available in the local area including handmade jewelry, bath and body products, all natural honey and a variety of baked goods. Empire Animal Rescue Society (E.A.R.S.) will be onsite with some adoptable pets looking for forever homes. The music begins at 6 p.m. with Artist-inResidence Ken Hardley, a musician, entertainer and socialite from Upstate New York. Hardley has dedicated his life to restless explorations of a variety of musical and literary mediums making him a performer of broad musical taste and perspective. Whether hosting Rolling Hills Radio, fronting a band, emceeing an event or playing solo, he creates an edgy, warm, funny,

unpredictable, cerebral atmosphere that the whole family can enjoy. Headlining the music of the evening is the KoKoMo Time Band that takes the stage at 7:30 p.m. The group will play oldies of the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s and Beach Party tunes by Jimmy Buffett and the Beach Boys. Established in 1999, the Kokomo Time Band has played in the 2014 Buffalo Italian Festival, the 2015 and 2016 Falls Street events in Niagara Falls, 10 Taste of Orchard Park events, the 2017 Town of Niagara Concert Series, Seneca Nation of Indians Fall Fest (10 years), Lucy Fest (4-5 years) and the City of Jamestown events including the 2017 McCrea Park Dedication and 2018 Bridge Fest. The band was also honored to play during the Independence Day Celebration this past Fourth of July on the Main Stage in the City of Niagara Falls. Offering a refreshing alternative in local music, The KoKoMo Time Band has nearly 200 songs in their song list that they can tailor to make any concert and/or party event a hit. Current band members include Spencer Drake, virtuosic guitarist and bass; John Guras,

keyboards and vocals; Vince Micheche, bass and vocals; and the band’s founder and leader Jim Steffan, drums and vocals. This family-friendly event will also feature activities for all ages including crafts for kids. Families can sign up for the sand sculpture contest and put their creativity to the test. Building starts at 5:30 p.m. and judging will be at 6:30. The “Ask the Naturalist” table will feature some interactive displays where park naturalists will be on hand to answer visitors’ questions about the park’s flora and fauna. Red House Beach will be open for swimming from 11 a.m. through 7:45 p.m. People should bring lawn chairs or blankets and can pack a picnic supper if they wish. Beginning at 4 p.m., J-Con Concessions will host a chicken barbecue, until sold out.

one canvas one rubber, 1 one gallon thermos jug, many small articles, such as comb, mirror, shaving tools, compass etc. Now this outfit may seem rather large, but there is none of it but what is in use at some time on the trip. In regards to the blankets, it is impossible to have too many. If you are going to sleep out doors in comfort, you must have as much bedding under as you have over. It is advisable to buy all supplies for the day at the first chance that you have in the morning, for if bought then you can go on your way and forget it, but if delayed, is bound to cause inconvenience and trouble. Many campgrounds do not have a store. (Remember this in 1926) Many things that we think are necessary in the home can be improvised for camp use. For instance, an excellent food chopper is a baking powder can. A milk bottle will do fine for a rolling pin. I have seen a camper take an old warming over from a kitchen range, found on the dump and make it into as good a wood heater as one could ask for at a cost of not over ten cents for screws. Another makes an oven for his camp stove from an old battery box found at the same place. It is up to us, however, to get started on our trip. We had as many of you of course know, been camping for some time at Cascade Park (In Springville where the Country Club is now). On September 30th, we made a start. Ethel, Florence and

I as well as Fluff the cat. It had rained the day before and in fat most of the time for many days before, but we pack just the same figuring that things would dry out sometime. Our route was via Painted Post and the Susquehanna Trail to Gettysburg. The cat had calmed down after expressing his opinion for fifty miles or so and everything was running smooth when just as we were entering Canisteo, BANG, there goes the rear tire! This was expected, but not so soon. We put on a new one and kept on. The sky which had been light, was now black and soon it was raining again,

getting colder and colder all the while. At Jasper New York, we felt that we had had enough of it and spent our first and only night in a house for the entire trip. Next week I will share more of this journal of his trip. Do you keep a journal when you travel? We all take photos of what we see and could make up photo albums.

Questions for Bills on O-line, running back Dawkins was at left tackle, where he slumped last year after a solid rookie season, with free agent Ty Nsekhe on the right side. Thus, with that jumbled unit, it’s hard to tell exactly where the line, in major rebuild mode, might be.

By Chuck Pollock So what do we make of the Bills’ preseason opener? It’s waaay hard to tell. Game 1 of the “exhibition” campaign (sorry NFL) is normally fraught with sloppiness, and you know you’re going to see the starters for a only a quarter … if that. Oh last week’s 24-16 win over the Colts at New Era Field wasn’t that untidy … per se. There were a predictable 15 combined penalties for 127 yards and a modest three giveaways (two by the Bills). The real problem was assessing what you were seeing. Buffalo’s offensive line that started the game was center Jon Feliciano, normally a guard, in place of Mitch Morse, the $44.5 million free agent acquisition from Kansas City, currently in the concussion protocol. And, indeed, late in the first half, when backup center Bodine, whom the Bills are supposedly trying to unload, was shaken up, fourth-stringer Ike Boettger was actually the snapper when running back Senorise Perry scored his touchdown. At left guard, Quinton Spain was called for holding on Buffalo’s first series, and at right guard was secondround draft choice Cody Ford, who had been playing tackle. Holdover Dion

BUT THE biggest question, offensively, last night was running back. LeSean McCoy, who coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane swear is the starter, was held out. Instead Frank Gore, the 36-year-old free agent acquisition, played with the first team (2 carries, 7 yards; 1 reception, 4 yards) in two series. Supposedly, the 31-yearold McCoy will start next Friday at Carolina, but it’s hard not to wonder if Buffalo is looking to trade him given his $9 million cap hit while coming off his worst season as a pro. Then, too, the Bills might have found a gem in thirdround draft pick Devin Singletary, the 5-foot-7, 203-pound running back from Florida Atlantic. He had a game-high nine carries for 27 yards and three receptions for 21 more. But what stood out was the speed and elusiveness he had already demonstrated in college when he scored 67 touchdowns and produced nearly 4,700 yards total offense in three seasons at FAU. THE BILLS defense played well, but against suspect opposition. Elite Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is sidelined with a calf strain that could keep him out until the regular-season opener. Thus, backup Jacoby Brissett got

the start and played only three series in case Luck is out longer. Third-stringer Phillip Walker finished the half and Chad Kelly, Bills Hall-of-Famer Jim Kelly’s nephew, played the third and fourth quarters. OTHER OBSERVATIONS from last Thursday’s game: — First-round draft choice Ed Oliver, the ninth overall pick, was invisible. He was credited with no tackles. — Veteran place-kicker Stephen Hauschka, who had a tough finish to 2018, endured an inauspicious debut, missing a 34-yard field goal — 1 yard longer than an extra point — when it hit the upright in the first quarter. In the last five games a season ago, he was 6-of-11 on field goals and missed a conversion. — Though it came in the fourth quarter with the shock troops in, Christian Wade, the 5-foot-9, 196-pound running back from St. Mary’s University of the United Kingdom, electrified the remaining crowd from the original 58,124 with his speed and quick cut on a 65yard touchdown sprint. Wade, 28, is a retired English rugby player who came to the Bills via the NFL’s International Player Pathway. He doesn’t count against Buffalo’s 90-player roster. — With Gore and, if he isn’t dealt, McCoy, plus Singletary, Perry and even Wade, it’s worth wondering whether T.J. Yeldon, the free agent from Jacksonville, will make the team. He had two carries for 8 yards, fumbling at the end of the second one, and also had a catch for 10 yards.

SENIOR CENTER Continued from front page

On Saturday, Eschborn said each senior group will have a table set up for members so those who attend can see what they do. Erie County will have information about the fitness nutrition and some members of the Concord Town Board may be around to say hi. “I would just love to see different people, not only the seniors, but just any person coming in, because we’re all going to get older,” she said. “Everybody is going to be able to use the senior center at some time.” Also on Saturday, Eschborn said she’ll have a suggestion box out for anyone to give ideas on what they’d like to see the center to do. For now, there are many groups going in the center, including the Stay Fit exercises, yoga, Stitches Quilt Group, euchre card club, the Springville Concord Garden Club, Women’s Club, the home bureau, community crafters and the Concord Senior Club. The Club works in the garden each week and it’s the local seniors who benefit from the vegetables harvested, Eschborn said. “They do the garden out here, they take care of it and then the senior reap the rewards,” she said. The Red Cross Blood Mobile comes to the center monthly, an AARP Defensive Driving Class is presented regularly and many medical insurance representatives stop by the center each month to help seniors with their health insurances.

WVDP site, as well as the demolition of the Main Process Plant — open air demolition or contained. The House has pledged to continue to fund the cleanup to the tune of $75 million a year. The White House has penciled in the same amount in its 20192020 budget. “The Energy and Commerce Committee in the Senate is favorable to the bill” as well, Reed said. “We have to get funding to continue each year. The seven-year bill is a very important signal.

That’s what we need for the Senate.” The funding bill comes up in the Senate in September. With both the House and White House backing the West Valley cleanup funding, “It bodes well for us,” Reed said. “I’m seeing the physical results of the demolition,” Reed said. “This is very helpful for other (DOE) sites like Hanford, Washington. They share equipment. They share best practices.” Reed said his message

times a year, the center hosts concerts with live bands performing and the tickets sell out in no time. Eschborn said they’re also working on getting a van for the center to transport potential patrons who otherwise couldn’t get there to and from the center. “Of course I couldn’t do it all without my staff,” she said. “My staff is fantastic. I have the best staff in the world, and volunteers.” While the center has been trying to grow more, among the challenges has been finding out what people like and want to see and support. Until then, anyone in the center is considered a success. “I don’t care how many people are here,” Eschborn said. “If one person is in here, that isn’t one person sitting at home staring at their four walls.”

Doane Gregory Milo Ventimigalia (right) and his furry co-star Enzo (voiced by Kevin Costner) in “The Art of Racing in the Rain.”

By Kellen M. Quigley Movies about animals have been around since almost the beginning of Hollywood, but ones about dogs in particular seem to be the family films that stick with kids long after they’ve grown. There’s the much better dramas such as “Old Yeller” and “Marley & Me,” the adventurous stories like “Homeward Bound” and even the animated classics like “Lady and the Tramp.” A recent revival of dog movies for families has been hitting theaters in the past few years, and the most recent one, “The Art of Racing in the Rain,” has a lot of what makes those films general crowdpleasers, but also a lot of what makes these stories fairly disposable. The thing about a lot of these movies is they don’t cost a lot of money to make and their productions aren’t all that complicated, but because nearly everyone loves puppies, it’s an easy profit when parents, kids, grandparents and whoever else can all go to see it together. While “The Art of Racing in the Rain” is no way a bad movie, it certainly isn’t great. Filled with cliches, groan-worthy plot choices and mediocre acting, this film would work a lot better on the Hallmark or Lifetime channels. But it also has an adorable dog, so it can’t be that bad. Told from the point of view of golden retriever Enzo (voiced by Kevin Costner), the story follows Denny Swift (Milo Ventimiglia), a racecar driver who has had plenty of experience on the racetrack that can be used to successfully navigate everyday life. Besides his career, Denny has three loves of his life — his beautiful wife (Amanda Seyfried), their young daughter and Enzo, who wants to be reincarnated into a human, something he once saw in a documentary on TV. But just as with racing, Denny and Enzo have

several unpredictable obstacles thrown in their way to achieving their dream of competing in the Formula 1 pro races. Through it all, they stick together and don’t give up on reaching their goals and being each other’s best friend. One of the things that does bring this movie up a notch above a lot of disposable products like this is Costner’s narration throughout. Even if it is often a little monotone, so much of what Enzo sees and does is impacted by believing Costner as the voice of this dog. Unfortunately, the script as a whole doesn’t help much. Although the overall story isn’t terrible, it’s the structure, most of the scenes and even lines of dialogue that are total cliches from dozens of other films. Costner may be saying them well, but the lines are not well written. Part of that is the movie not always knowing what it wants to be. Yes, it’s the life of a dog and the trials and tribulations he goes through with his owner, but it’s also an underdog sports movie during the racing scenes. And then it’s a romantic comedy when Denny meets his wife. And then in the second half, it becomes something else again, whiplashing with no consistent tone or motivations. I was surprised when nearly every moment shown in the trailer popped up in the first 40 minutes with over an hour of movie left. And then that last hour unfolded and I totally understood why it wasn’t advertised. This is where the majority of the groan-worthy cliches and inexcusable decisions come in. Thank goodness for the dog, because without him, this section of the movie isn’t even worthy of Lifetime or Hallmark. However, those are the only negative aspects of the film, which is overall fairly watchable, mostly due to it being well made. The director, Simon Curtis, also helmed the Oscar-bait movies “My Week with Marilyn” and “Woman in Gold,” which were also just a step above cheesy TV movie fodder, but were made extremely well and appealed to a general audience, just like this. There are lots of soft, fuzzy moments as well as some heartbreaking ones littered throughout this film’s runtime, but none of that matters if you don’t really like dogs. Because while this is a fine family film that is appropriate for almost anyone, without the dog, I don’t think I’d care at all.

department has done a lot of road work on roads in the town, including Snyder Road, Abbot Hill Road and Belscher Road. “Around here, they’re doing a good job,” he added. IN OTHER BUSINESS, the town board set its first three budget sessions for discussing the 2020 budget. The town board plans to meet on Tuesday, Aug. 27; Wednesday, Sept. 11; and Tuesday, Sept. 24, all at 6 p.m. at the town hall. Drake said they’ve sent out notices to the various town departments to submit their requests for the upcoming budget. He noted that the meetings are open to the public if anyone wishes to attend. Next, the town board authorized Drake to sign an agreement with the county concerning certain zombie properties in the town. Drake said this is different from the land bank process where the town is notified when

parcels are delinquent on real property taxes. “They have a database going, and we’d be able to go in the database and see what properties are behind on their mortgages,” he said. “We can decide by looking at the houses if it’s something we want the Western New York law people to go after the banks and either force them to put them up for sale or at least do required maintenance and lawn work so it doesn’t become an eyesore.” Town Attorney Brian Attea reviewed the agreement and did not have any issues with it. Also, the board passed a resolution recognizing Robert G. Smith II, a member of Boy Scout Troop 524, for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout and congratulated him for his hard work and dedication to the program. The next regular meeting of the Concord Town Board is set for Sept. 12 at 6 p.m.

Summer Things to consider before warming up next to your first fire this winter can make even the coldest winter day more enjoyable. Fireplaces may not get much use in spring or summer, but come late fall and throughout the winter, the fireplace can be a great place for families to gather. Before fireplace season hits full swing, homeowners might want to brush up on a few fireplace facts so they can safely enjoy nights spent sitting by the crackling flames. The Chimney Safety Institute of America advises homeowners with fireplaces to hire a CSIA-certified chimney sweep to clean their fireplaces. After a lengthly period of non-use, various issues could be affecting the chimney, many of which might not be noticeable to an untrained eye. Professional, certified chimney sweeps have extensive knowledge of fireplaces, making them valuable resources who can let homeowners know if any safety issues developed since fireplaces were last used. The National Protection Agency recommends that chimneys be swept at least once per year. A full inspection of the chimney might be in order as well. Chimney service technicians will conduct thorough examinations of readily accessible portions of the chimney exterior and interior and accessible portions of the appliance and the chimney connection. The CSIA recommends that homeowners

who plan to use their chimneys as they have in the past request a Level 1 inspection, which will examine the soundness of the chimney structure and flue as well as the basic appliance installation and connections. Technicians also will verify if the chimney is free of obstruction and combustible deposits. Homeowners also should inspect their chimney dampers before lighting their first fires of the season. Dampers should open and close smoothly. If not, a service technician can help fix or replace the damper. Firewood is another thing homeowners must consider before lighting their first fires of the season. The CSIA says that well-seasoned firewood works best, noting that wood that is not well-seasoned will produce more smoke than heat. In addition, the home improvement resource This Old House recommends using dense wood that’s

been split and stored in a high and dry place for at least six months. Oak is an example of dense wood that, when stored properly, can make for an enjoyable fireplace experience. Avoid softwoods like pine. Pine can produce a lot of creosote, which is a byproduct of wood combustion. Creosote is highly flammable, and as it builds up in a chimney, the risk for a chimney fire increases. Choosing the right wood, making sure it’s well-seasoned and having a chimney professionally cleaned can reduce the risk of a creosote-related chimney fire.
