For the first time in a dozen years, Clyde Drake led a public meeting when the Concord Town Board convened Thursday, Jan. 4 for its first time this year. Drake, who served as school board president for seven years in the late 1990s and early 2000s, oversaw his first meeting as Concord town supervisor, succeeding Gary Eppolito, who served in the position since 2005. The board met a week earlier than its traditional second Thursday of the month because it held its reorganizational meeting before a relatively short regular meeting. The reorganizational meeting consisted of the passage of more than 20 routine resolutions, including more than 40 appointments by the

County DPW Swayed Toward Four-way Stop at Genesee/240 Intersection

By Rich Place
The public has spoken and swayed the Erie County Department of Public Works (DPW) against constructing a roundabout at the Genesee Road and Route 240 intersection and instead creating a four-way stop. The potential decision comes after attendees at a public meeting in early December — as well as those who wrote letters to the DPW offices — voiced opposition to the idea of a roundabout. “Part of the process is

The Jureller Murder the FBI. The body showed signs of a severe beating, but there was no evidence of a struggle at the scene. When the medical examiner arrived, it was determined that she had been dead for 36 to 40 hours, making it on or around the night of Oct. 7. No bullet wounds were found; four broken ribs and one tooth had been knocked out. No ID was found on the body, but she wore two rings, one bearing the initials of CMJ the second ring SAS. In her coat pocket were ruby Rosary beads and a small white handkerchief. On the black silk dress she wore were two dusty imprints of a heel from a shoe or boot. Nothing else was found at the scene.

1936… A body was found on the Indian Reservation. It looked like an open and shut case of a girl being killed by her lover… but it was far from that. Some men had stopped for lunch and climbed up to the top of the bank to enjoy it. The ground was damp from the recent rains so they headed toward a dry spot, when they saw something lying on the ground. As they got closer, they saw the face of a girl, her lips were parted and she did not move. There were also black and blue marks on her face and throat and they could see she was dead. As the body was on the Reservation, they contacted

At the autopsy, it was found that she had a bluish mark on her throat, but she had not been strangled. There was a long gash behind her right ear, but no fractures. Her second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth ribs were broken, there was a bluish discoloration over the diaphragm, the liver had been ruptured AND she was six months pregnant! With no ID, the FBI released the description of her to the newspapers and radio. Leonard Jureller of Springville called to get more information.

LOCAL News Letter from the Editor
Yes, it’s January. It’s snowy and cold and dark much of the time. But, we live in Western New York. I’ve lived here my whole life, and this is nothing new. While it can be easy to give into cabin fever, why bother when there are so many fun ways to pass the time? This long weekend gives way to fun on the slopes, on the sledding hill, or even on the area ice rinks. January is also the perfect time to start fresh, and to really make an effort to stick to those resolutions. Be sure to check out Carlee’s weekly column on this page and learn about easy changes you can make to be a little bit healthier this year. If you prefer staying warm indoors, cheer on our Griffins in basketball, swimming, wrestling, indoor track or bowling. Our SGI page features a weekly sports schedule, and there are competitions almost every evening. And if you really just want to stay home, why not curl up by the fireplace with the Springville Times and learn about all the new and exciting things going on right
A HEALTHIER 2018 YOU
Holiday NutrientConcerts Check By Carlee Frank
Welcome back to the third week of a healthier you! Now that you’ve added exercise to your new and improved diet, how do you feel? Maybe you’re tired and a bit stressed out, or you are energized and hopeful— either way, keep pushing forward. Most of us want to see results the next day, but lifestyle changes take time. Hopefully last week, you were able to sit down with your calendar and block out four times per week to exercise, even if it is only a brisk 20-minute walk. If you haven’t found the motivation to continue, or are just tuning in this week, I challenge you to re-read weeks one and two and join the Healthier You club. Stay determined –your health is worth it! Now, let’s talk about the standard American diet. While your mind might wander over images of apple pie and malt shakes, I’m not talking about the nostalgic foods of our past, but rather the average diet of 20th and 21st century Americans. The standard American diet has been defined as, “rich in red meat, dairy products, processed and artificially sweetened foods, and salt, with minimal intake of fruits, vegetables, fish, legumes, and whole grains.” Now, America is not the only country with nutritional difficulties; nearly every country in the world has portions of its population suffering from starvation, and others eating overly processed foods. So, what makes a food “overly processed”? Think of it this way —our bodies were designed to eat what we can hunt, grow and gather. Some may argue that we could potentially grow the potatoes found in our favorite fast food French fries, but those very same fries also contain starch, dimethylpolysiloxane and dextrose, and I doubt we could grow those ingredients. So, for argument’s sake, let’s focus on what our bodies do need. According to Food Pyramid, we need carbohydrates, fats, proteins and water (the macro nutrients), and various vitamins and minerals (micro nutrients), all of which are found in fruits, vegetables, proteins, oils, etc. Revisiting the standard American diet, a 2007-2010 study by the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that 87 percent of Americans have vegetable intakes below the goal; 75 percent have fruit intakes below the goal; and 86 percent of Americans have dairy intakes below the goal. The study also found that 70 percent of Americans have an “added sugars” intake above the limit; 71 percent have a saturated fat intake above the limit; and 89 percent have a sodium consumption above the limit. So, what does this all mean? Well, when we do not eat the proper nutrients, our digestive system cannot power basic functions such as energy production, cellular repair and growth, or fight off infections, regulate sleep and mood. Over time, eating overly processed foods –such as high fructose corn syrup –can also harm our digestive system. While this all sounds incredibly depressing and hopeless, just wait, there’s hope! We, the average American, can do something about this. We can choose to eat whole fruits and vegetables, avoid processed and fast foods, and be more mindful of what we put in our bodies. Again, ask yourself how your meal or grocery haul can be healthier, but this time keep in mind the additives floating around the market. Begin reading the ingredients section of your favorite foods to gain greater insight into your weekly nutrient intakes. Don’t beat yourself up over the number on the scale. Instead, value your body –we only get one, so let’s treat it well. Next week, we will discuss stretching. Although underrated, stretching is one of the most beneficial activities to the human body. See you then!

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
This weekend, we remember Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. According to the National Archives, “Martin Luther King, Jr. became the predominant leader in the Civil Rights Movement to end racial segregation and discrimination in America during the 1950s and 1960s and a leading spokesperson for nonviolent methods of
achieving social change. His eloquence as a speaker and his personal charisma, combined with a deeply rooted determination to establish equality among all races despite personal risk won him a world-wide following. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Price in 1964 and was selected by Time magazine as its Man of the Year. His “I Have a Dream” speech, which is now considered to be
among the great speeches of American history, is frequently quoted. His success in galvanizing the drive for civil rights, however, made him the target of conservative segregationists who believed firmly in the superiority of the white race and feared social change. He was arrested over 20 times and his home was bombed. Ultimately, he was assassinated on April 4,
1968, on the balcony of a motel where he was staying in Memphis. A monument to Dr. King was unveiled in the national capital in 2012.” On Nov. 3, 1983, President Ronald Reagan signed a bill marking the third Monday of every January, as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The holiday was officially observed starting in 1986.

LOCAL Government and News Drake Looks Ahead in First Term as Concord Town Supervisor By Rich Place
For Clyde Drake, being involved in a government body is nothing new. He served on the Springville-Griffith Institute School Board of Education for 10 years in the late 1990s and early 2000s, including seven years as president. He also served for a term on the Concord Town Board before being elected supervisor. Any given weekday, he’s now likely sitting at the supervisor’s desk on the second floor of the town hall on Franklin Street. And as far as that seat is concerned, he’s a relatively new face — previous supervisor Gary Eppolito held the position since 2005. “Since the election, I checked in with him every day just to see what was going on,” Drake said during a recent interview from his office. “In December, I was down there half days. Gary took me to some of the meetings with him.” Last week, Drake ran his first town board gathering as supervisor during its reorganizational meeting on Thursday, Jan. 4. And reflecting on it with an eye to the future, Drake said it’s a clean slate for everyone involved, from
board members to town employees to local residents. “We’ve got such a great board here and I really think we can make a difference,” he said. “It’s a new beginning for everybody.” Primarily, most discussions about Drake’s immediate goals as supervisor centered around his desire to keep the town involved in various organizations. That means having town officials attend meetings like those held by the Springville Area Chamber of Commerce, for example, as well as other groups. “The door is open and I’ll listen to the people,” he said. “We are not always going to agree with them, but we are always going to be listening.” Drake said his desire to serve on the town board came from a request by Debbie King, who served as vice president of the school board under Drake, and also served on the town board. He won election in 2013 and served as a councilman from 2014 to 2017. Last year, after much contemplation, he decided to run for supervisor. “It was tough because I had been retired, we had done some traveling and for the next four years, we are pretty much committed to staying here and fighting the battles,” Drake said.
As far as the job itself is concerned, he discussed the challenge of keeping taxes relatively low while still maintaining funds for town operations and infrastructure. Among those at the top of the list is finding a solution to the aging sewer plant at Craneridge, which he said is over 50 years old. “We will be trying to look for some grant money to try and somehow update that,” he said, noting there is also a sewer plant in the Kissing Bridge area. “I don’t know if it’ll be combining the two of them but, with something that’s 50 years old, you’ve got to sort of start taking a look.” He also hopes he and the board will address the deteriorating snack shack at Community Park. “It’s a lot of things that we’ve got our eyes on but it all comes down to dollars and cents,” he said. “We’ve been getting elected all these years by keeping taxes low. The downside of that is you’ve got to make sure you’ve got some money put away for these big things if they were to come up.” Drake worked as an accountant for General Motors in Buffalo from 1972 to 1993 and for American Axle from 1993 to 2006. He retired but ended up working for Carleton
By Rich Place
Technologies of Orchard Park until 2013. Now he’s bringing his experience as an accountant — including his master’s of business administration degree from University at Buffalo — to the town supervisor’s position. “I’m going to be looking at doing five-year budgets. I did them in the industry for years,” he said. “I’m not going to tell you I have all the answers just sitting here today, but I want to get more into the accounting side of it because that’s what my strength is — to see how we can accomplish this stuff.” Drake also hopes the town and village can find some “common ground” to better work together. He said he’s also been talking with town employees to address any concerns they might have. “Everybody has got a clean slate and we are just going to try and solve as many problems as we can,” he said.
Town of Concord Continues Planning for the Future
The final public information meeting to discuss the DRAFT Town of Concord Comprehensive Plan Update is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 18, at 6 p.m. at the Concord Senior Center, 40 Commerce Drive, Springville. After months of research and public outreach, the consultant is ready to present the Draft Comprehensive Plan Update, and provide local
residents and stakeholders the opportunity to express their views prior to approval of the Final Plan. Some topics to be discussed include: land use and zoning, community character, growth and development, agricultural preservation, recreational needs, economic vitality, community services and other issues and concerns in the community. The Town is interested in updating the comprehensive plan
to help guide the future growth and improve the overall quality of life, provide better economic opportunities, evaluate opportunities for other community improvement. A Comprehensive Plan is one of the most important tools that a community can use to establish a vision for the future and set effective goals and objectives for achieving that vision. The Town has hired Wendel, and architecture,
engineering and planning firm, to assist with the preparation of the Comprehensive Plan. Representatives will present and moderate open discussion to gather input from the public. Residents and other interested parties are encouraged t come out and offer their thoughts on what is important for the future of the community. The formal presentation will start at 6 p.m.
Town Board Continued from front page
its first regular meeting of the year and were surprised to hear of the retirement of parks superintendent Joe Krzemien. “This sort of caught us by surprise,” Drake told the board. Krzemien was responsible primarily for the maintenance of Community Park on North Buffalo Street. In a letter to the board, Krzemien said he retired Dec. 31, 2017 and will make himself available to his successor for advice. “The good thing is there
really is no activity up at Community Park until basically the end of March,” Drake said. “So we’ll have to start advertising.” Also at the meeting, John and Mary Jane Miess addressed the board; the pair have been outspoken advocates for senior-related issues in the town. “I want to publicly thank the new board, specifically Supervisor Drake and Councilman (William) Snyder, for extending an olive branch, as they say, and asking to meet with
Mary Jane and myself,” he said. “They graciously afforded us more than an hour in the supervisor’s office discussing senior related issues. We came away feeling a new sense of respect and courtesy that seemed missing before and expressed a willingness to listen and good faith to suggestions for improvement.” The town board also added a handful of meetings to their upcoming calendar, including a special board
Ellicottville Central Declines Participation in West Valley Pre-annexation Study
meeting at 10 a.m. Jan. 18 to pay bills; a meeting at 6 p.m. Jan. 18 at the Senior Center on the Concord Comprehensive Plan update; and a public hearing at 6:45 p.m. Feb. 8 on the Cold War Veterans’ Exemption. The next regular meeting of the Concord Town Board is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 8 at the town offices inside Goddard Memorial Hall, 86 Franklin St., Springville.
The Ellicottville School Board of Education on Tuesday declined to participate in a pre-annexation study with the West Valley Central School District. A message about recent communication between the two neighboring districts was delivered in a two-minute prepared statement read by Ellicottville school board president Connie Hellwig on behalf of the board. There was no other comment made about the topic during the meeting. “Perhaps in the future, we may be in a position to join in a comprehensive annexation study, but we politely decline to participate any further in the West Valley study at this time,” Hellwig said in the statement. The decision comes after West Valley school officials in mid-autumn requested information from Ellicottville for its pre-annexation study. West Valley also requested similar information from neighboring SpringvilleGriffith Institute, a request that was fulfilled, according to West Valley Superintendent Eric Lawton. At its December meeting, the West Valley School Board was informed by Lawton that Ellicottville had requested compensation to obtain the information. Ellicottville Superintendent Bob Miller confirmed the request, which he said was for two people for a maximum of $350 per person. “Once we received the documents from Costello & Silky LLC, whom West Valley hired to conduct the study, it seemed to us they were requesting some very detailed information for a pre-annexation study,” Hellwig said in the statement. “This document was several pages long, with 46 complex questions.” The Ellicottville School Board in November discussed meeting with officials from West Valley to obtain more information about the study. A meeting was held Nov. 30 with three members of the Ellicottville School Board, Lawton and West Valley School Board president Stephen Kowalski and vice president Kimberly Cizdziel, according to Kowalski. “During our meeting with the West Valley superintendent and their board president and vice president, it became clear to us that both districts lacked interest in any annexation plan at this time,” Hellwig said in the statement. At the December school board meeting in West Valley, both Kowalski and Cizdziel had noted what they felt was a lack of interest overall from Ellicottville school officials at that meeting. In the statement, Hellwig on Tuesday went on to stress the importance of focusing the Ellicottville school district’s time and effort on its own district. “Therefore, as our responsibility is to our ECS school taxpayers and students, we will spend our time and resources concentrating on our home district and continue to embrace change, celebrate success and surpass expectations,” she said. “Our district is in a healthy condition right now. Our enrollment is up, our financial status is strong, we are exceeding state and national standards academically and we have a strong participation and achievement in extracurricular activities.” The statement comes a day after the West Valley School Board’s regular meeting, during which Lawton had informed the board the district proceeded on its own to obtain information from Ellicottville for the study. Lawton said business official Ann O’Brien and Dr. William Silky, director of the education consulting form, gathered the requested financial information. Also at the West Valley meeting on Monday, former school board president Michael Frascella spoke for about six minutes as a member of the public, thanking the board repeatedly for the opportunities it has allowed his children in academics and sports and also commenting on the pre-annexation study. “Thanks for starting up talks again with both districts,” he told the board. “That’s what I wanted two years ago. That’s something that is very important to see where we’re at … you have to put all the cards on the table.” Frascella applauded the school board for choosing to request information in the pre-annexation study from both neighboring districts, stating “you want all the information on the table to make an educated decision what is best for our district and our kids.” He also said the sports merger with Ellicottville, which began in the 2015-16 school year, has had a positive impact on his children. “My kids have made a lot of friends in Ellicottville, my kids still love West Valley,” Frascella said. “My kids still want to be here. I still want my kids to be here. I just appreciate the opportunity they have right now.” The West Valley School Board initiated the preannexation study in late October after approving Costello & Silky LLC to lead the effort. The two districts involved — Ellicottville and SpringvilleGriffith Institute — are direct neighbors to West Valley’s southern and northern borders, respectively.

Sarantis Tsirtsakis 1955-2018
WHEATFIELD — Sarantis “Sam” Tsirtsakis, of Wheatfield, passed away peacefully on Monday (Dec. 25, 2017) in Niagara Hospice House, Lockport. He was born in Sofiko Evros, Greece on Feb. 11, 1955, a son of the late Apostolis and Parthena (Nikolaidou) Tsirtsakis. Sam left home when he was 13 to see what life had to offer outside of his village. He found work at a restaurant in Athens, where he first found his love for working in the food industry. At only 15, Sam joined the Merchant Marines and was able to travel all over the world, eventually coming to America. He moved to New York City where he worked for various restaurants before joining his brother Demitri at his restaurant in Silver Creek. In 1987, Sam opened his first restaurant, the Olympia Family Restaurant in Gowanda, and in 1998 opened his second location on Niagara Falls Boulevard in Wheatfield.
Sam was incredibly proud of his Greek heritage and will always be remembered for the love and kindness he extended to everyone he came in contact with. Sam had a love for bowling, always making sure everyone knew how competitive he was. Sam’s memory lives on through his loving wife, Sarah N. (White) Tsirtsakis; his six children, Apostolis, Evangelos, Nikolaos, Alexandros, Kaliope and Kalomira Tsirtsakis; a grandson, Darren Tsirtsakis; and five brothers, Panagiotis, Vasilis, Giorgos, Christo and Demitri Tsirtsakis.

became an official Olympic sport in 1992. Short track athletes utilize skates that are higher than traditional racing skates and stiff gloves to protect the hands from being cut by the blades. Short track skaters compete on an elimination basis, in heats of four at a time. After a group start, skaters race to be the first to the finish line. The winner is the one who gets there first and time is not a deciding factor.
Eight sets of medals are awarded: 500-, 1,000-, and 1,500-meter races (for both men and women), and relay races involving four-person teams at distances of 3,000 meters for women, and 5,000 meters for men. Short track events begin Feb. 10. For more info, visit www. nbcolympics.com and pyeongchang2018.com

SGI SPORTS SCHEDULE
Modified Basketball Teams Halfway Through Season
By Alicia Dziak
The youngest of SGI’s basketball teams include the modified levels for both girls and boys, which are made up of students in 7th and 8th grades. At the mid-way point in the season, the boys’ record sits at 1-5. “The record is deceiving, as the boys have been competitive against every opponent, losing by five or fewer baskets,” said coach Gretchen Heichberger, after a tight 3225 loss to Pioneer this week. “The boys play very tenaciously on defense creating excellent defensive pressure,” she added. “As a team, they are still learning the fundamentals of basketball and looking to improve the little things that can create big changes on the court. As the team looks ahead, they are ready to challenge each opponent once more looking for a win!”
Coming off a win last week against JFK, the modified Lady Griffs took a loss on Monday night against Pioneer. “Pioneer is always a tough game for us. I talked with the girls and told them they needed to come out strong in order to play with Pioneer,” said coach Kim Pazzuti. “The first quarter did not go our way but slowly after all the nerves settled, we came to life. We were reading their plays better and not giving up those easy shots down low.” Halley Hayden was the high scorer on the night, with 14 points. Sarah O’Neal added 4 points, and Sydney Fuller, Danielle Henderson, and Elaina Bond each added 2 points. The final score was Pioneer 35 and Lady Griffs 24. Catch the modified squad in action at home on Jan. 22 when they take on Eden at the SGI Middle School.

SGI Coaches Corner Girls’ JV Basketball, Coach Chris Mathewson
Last Thursday the Girls JV Basketball team improved its record to 4-2 with a 49-35 victory over host Maryvale. Cora Boundy led the Griffs with 13 points, numerous assists and excellent defensive pressure. Three other Griffs scored in double figures Gracie Attebery with 11, and Rachel O’Neal and Melanie Barry with 10 each. The Griffs turned around a 19-18 halftime deficit by outscoring the Flyers 31- 16 in the second half. Girls’ Varsity Basketball, Coach Bob Gainey
The varsity girls basketball team opened up league play on Thursday night and lost 48-33. The girls had a difficult time throughout the evening containing Maryvale on the offensive boards. Although there were times of solid play, most notably from Jess Engel, the team couldn’t quite hit their stride for the duration of the game. The loss puts the girls at 3-3 overall and 0-1 in league play. The girls dropped their game on Monday night to a very good Lake Shore team by a score of 65-26. The girls dealt with some difficult pressure in the backcourt which led to some unfortunate turnovers with Lake Shore turning those mistakes into points. Despite the score, the Lady Griffs never quit at any point during the game. Scorers on the night included: Grace Zabawa (6 points,) Mackenzie Engel (6 points,)
Leah Frank (4 points,) Ivette Lewandowski (5 points,) Kelsey Zabawa (3 points) and Ryan Stedman with 2 points. The highlight on the night came when section 6 awarded their “Character of the Game” participant. This award is given to a player from each team who best reflects: strong character, hustle, sportsmanship, and positive communication (among other traits.) Kelsey Zabawa was the recipient of the award and a well-deserved honor for everything she did last night. Congratulations Kelsey! The girls are back in action on Thursday night when they host Iroquois. Bowling, Coach Kevin Farner
Last week, the bowling team had one match versus Eden. The girls won 6-1; their record for the season is now 3 wins, 1 loss. Emily Leverentz had the top three game series with 490; Cece Krezmien had the high single game with 180. The boys also beat Eden by a 5-2 score. They are still undefeated with a 4-0 record. Emmitt Collins had 231-562, Nick Abdo 204-551, and Tom Starks 210-541 we’re high scorers. Abdo leads our division in average with 206; Collins is third with 194. Next up are road matches at Lackawanna on Wednesday and Eden on Thursday.

SPRINGVILLE Area Happenings MARK YOUR CALENDAR
Pistol Permit Recertification Outreach in Springville Jan. 19 County Clerk Michael P. Kearns and County Legislator John Mills have announced a pistol permit recertification outreach will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 19 at Concord Public Library, 18 Chapel St., Springville. The clerk, legislator and staff from the county clerk’s office will be available to answer any questions regarding the recertification process. Hard copies of recertification forms will be made available at the outreach. “I understand there are many people who disagree with and are frustrated with the NY SAFE Act. However, with the deadline for re-certification fast approaching, I do not want to see any citizen lose their pistol permit because they did not recertify their license,” said Kearns. “I have made resources available at the county clerk’s office to assist with re-certification. I encourage all pistol permit holders to recertify as soon as possible.” “I would like to thank Clerk Kearns for hosting these outreaches,” said Mills (R-Orchard Park). “Though I strongly disagree with the SAFE Act, it’s important pistol permit holders know the rules and regulations so they can continue to lawfully own their firearms.” Because of provisions in the NY SAFE Act, pistol permit holders who received their permit prior to Jan. 15, 2013 must recertify with the New York State Police by Jan. 31. This is the first year this requirement is in place. Over 50,000 pistol permit holders in Erie County have yet to recertify. Those needing to recertify can pick up hard copies of the state’s recertification form at each auto bureau in Erie County and at the Pistol Permit Office. Those forms must be mailed to the New York State Police, Pistol Permit Bureau, Building 22, 1220 Washington Ave., Albany, NY 12226-2252. Additionally, 20 computer stations located at Erie County Hall, 92 Franklin St., Buffalo, are available with a direct link to the pistol permit recertification website at www.troopers.ny.gov/firearms. Further pistol permit recertification outreaches will be held across the county in the coming weeks, dates and locations will be announced shortly. Anyone with questions about the outreach or recertification process can call Kearns’ office at (716) 858-8866.

Intersection Continued from front page
listening to the public and, being public servants, we are supposed to serve the public,” said Charles Sickler, Erie County deputy commissioner of highways. “It was pretty loud and clear that they don’t want a roundabout even though we think it’s probably the better choice.” Sickler was quick to note, however, that his department still considers a four-way stop as a safer alternative than the current configuration, which has traffic at Genesee Road, as well as nearby Sibley Road, stopping while commuters on Route 240 pass through.
The decision to improve the intersection came after the Erie County DPW last October announced federal funding had been secured for the study, design and construction of intersection improvements there following a review that spanned three years of traffic reports on the site. Sickler said a four-way stop scenario would only require installing signage, which he estimated to cost about $900. In 2016, the Erie County DPW reported construction on the selected alternative was anticipated to begin this spring with a budget of $760,000. “We’ve got a few more “If the public wanted zeros to add in there, so we something that was not safe will probably do some road and would not work then we paving” within the bounds would not do that,” Sickler of the intersection, Sickler said. “A roundabout would said. work.

Another option presented at the public meeting in early December was a traffic signal, but it was determined the option was not viable because of the lack of volume of vehicles passing through the intersection. David Askinzai of Clark, Patterson & Lee presented the roundabout option because of the reduction in fatalities at roundabouts, he said, citing federal studies. The recommendations for the project came following a three-year traffic study that spanned June 2013 to May 2016. A total of 27 accidents took place there during that time period, with 25 being right-angle accidents, Askinazi said. He noted the accident rate of 4.81 accidents per million vehicles is 13.74 times higher than the regional rate of .35 accidents per million vehicles. However, Matthew Willibey, a past chief of the East Concord Fire Department, said since larger stop signs and “cross traffic does not stop” signs
were installed on Genesee Road at the intersection in November 2016, there has not been a single personal injury accident there. The study — and the process to acquire funding — to remedy the problems at the intersection began before the signs were installed. Sickler said, in addition to comments from the Dec. 4 meeting, the county DPW received 18 letters concerning the intersection, with 14 of them against a roundabout. Four of those letters against a roundabout came from the East Concord Fire Department on its letterhead, he said. Sickler said it’s expected the signs will be erected this spring, and that electronic signage must be displayed for 30 days before signs go up to inform commuters of the upcoming changes. “The all-way stop will work probably just as well,” Sickler said. “Like anything else, if people obey the signage and all, we won’t have a problem. What people do and what we can control is not always what we want.”

Red Cross Blood Drives
This January, National Blood Donor Month, the American Red Cross has an urgent need for blood platelet donors of all blood types to make an appointment to give now and help address a winter blood donation shortage. Severe winter weather has had a tremendous impact on blood donations already this year, with more than 150 blood drives forced to cancel causing over 5,500 blood and platelet donations to go uncollected. In New York, 10 blood drives were forced to cancel due to last week’s winter storm, causing 235 donations to go uncollected.

Camp Turner Receives $4,000 Grant for Wilderness Adventure Equipment
Experience the healing power of nature as you relax in New York’s first authentic European-built salt cave.
• Signature salt stone massage • Infared sauna • Lemongrass foot scrub • Ladies packages • Salt Lamps and more! Gift Certificates available. Camp Turner recently received a $4,000 grant that will enable the continuation of its wilderness adventure programs. Shown are some female campers wearing backpacks rented from an outfitter. The new packs will be similar to the ones shown in the photo. By Deb Everts
Thanks to a $4,000 grant, children from all over 1:15 AM the region will be able to continue to enjoy Camp Turner’s thriving and growing wilderness adventure programs. Camp Director John Mann said Camp Turner wishes to extend its gratitude, appreciation and thanks to the Cattaraugus County Youth Bureau, Senator Catharine M. Young, R-Olean, and her staff for the generous grant in support of the program. “Campers at Camp Turner have the opportunity to sign up for multi-night wilderness camping trips, which require the use of tents and backpacks,” he said. “The funding from the Cattaraugus County Youth Bureau has enabled us to replace and upgrade our old, worn equipment with new, quality products from Cabela’s. These upgrades should ensure the viability of the backpacking program for a decade to come.” Camp Turner features
several backpacking programs that will benefit from this grant, including the Explorer and Counselorin-Training (CIT) programs, as well as outdoor living skills activities. According to Mann, the wilderness adventure programs are held during the summer months for older campers. He said there are at least two backpacking trips scheduled this summer as part of the regular summer camp program. “We’ve been doing these two-week programs for quite some time, but both programs were revived last summer,” Mann said. “Initially, we had backpacks donated to us by the ROTC at St. Bonaventure. The reason they donated them was because they were too old and worn out for the ROTC kids to use.” According to Mann, the backpacks were used at Camp Turner an additional nine years after they were donated. He finally decided to find a way to get new backpacks because they
were starting to breakdown. Then somebody suggested he apply for a grant. “The new backpacks will be important to both the Explorer and CIT programs. I couldn’t have run these programs without replacing the equipment,” he said. “It had to happen some way or another. The backpacks and the tents weren’t going to last another summer.” Explorers is a two-week, high adventure program for serious campers, aged 14-16. Mann said the group is going to take a four-day, three-night backpacking trip this summer. “The last five years, we’ve done it through Allegany State Park on North Country Trail,” he said. “The four years before that we did it on North Country Trail, but up in the Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania. Each year, it’s been on different routes and I haven’t decided the route for this year.” Mann said campers in the CIT program are also going to do a three-day
www.EllicottvilleSaltCave.com 32 West Washington Street, Ellicottville NY backpacking trip on North Country Trail. During the second week of the program, they do the trip that includes Sky High Adventure Park’s high ropes course at Holiday Valley and some other service learning opportunities. He said the two-week program gives 15and 16-year-olds who want to work at camp a lot of training so they can become future staff members if desired. According to Mann, regular summer sessions at Camp Turner offer three days and two nights of camping fun to children from all over the region. He said it’s not only a fun trip, but it’s also an educational one. Originally from North Tonawanda, Mann and his wife, Sheryl Soborowski, live in Great Valley. Mann, who has served as director for 16 years this summer, said Camp Turner provides

a great opportunity for young campers to make new friends and keep their minds active over the summer and during winter break. He said the kids get to try some cool, new activities and reconnect with the presence of God in nature. Camp Turner is a resident summer camp offering a full schedule of programs and activities for children ages 7 to 16. The campers come from all over Western New York. The Department of Youth and Young Adult Ministry of the Catholic Diocese of Buffalo has operated the not-for-profit camp since 1923.
The camp is located on the Quaker side of Allegany State Park. More details and information can be found online at campturner.com, or by calling 354-4555.

A Look Back Continued from front page
Prentice and Mrs. Sylvester Smith, and ID the body. They told them that Christina had lived on Waverly Street with the Prentices. Wednesday morning, Oct. 7, Harry Prentice had driven her to the train station on West Main Street as she was taking the 10:19 train to Buffalo. She was going to visit her sister Ethel who worked in Buffalo, and then later she was going to Salamanca to visit another sister, Mrs. Flyod Kightlinger. She only had a small bag with her. Christina was described as a home girl, never going out with men. She was home almost every night, only going to church, the movies or to visit a neighbor. She was not known to date, or stay out late. The news of her being pregnant was a shock. When the family gathered together, Harry told how he had driven her to the depot, leaving before she got on the train. Ethel said she never arrived in Buffalo. Investigators went to train station next. Yes, she had been seen, and did purchase a one-way ticket to Buffalo and did indeed board the train, with five other people. She should have gotten off in Lackawanna, but no one saw her get off the train. Thirty to 40 other people did get off that train, but not her. At the eight stops between Springville and Buffalo, the baggage rooms were checked for any parcels that were left, and none were found. Her photo was shown and no one remembered seeing her. Miss May Yost said she had spoke to Christina on Wednesday afternoon, when they were both waiting for the train from Springville. Mrs. Lagarda Bordmen said that Christina sat behind her on the 6 p.m. train. A discovery was made less than a mile from where she was found. A black leather bag containing night clothes, stockings, and toilet articles was found, all identified as being Christina’s. A black purse was also found, with money and the contents being hers as well. A very similar case of disappearance was brought up… that of Helen Jureller, Christina’s older sister. In 1930, Helen was rumored to be pregnant when she, too, disappeared. Helen also lived with Mr. and Mrs. Harry Prentice … Harry drove her to the railroad station, and no one ever saw her again. (Harry Prentice was a police officer at the time.) The family received a letter where she claimed to have committed suicide, but the body was never found. Now the FBI was wondering if the two cases were connected. Stay tuned to next week’s Springville Times for part two of this Springville murder mystery from over 80 years ago.
