Spend the Holiday Weekend in Ellicottville

By Alicia Dziak

Hooray for holiday weekends! Having Monday off is the perfect excuse to explore Ellicottville and all that it’s known for this time of year. Whether you prefer your winter fun indoors or out, you’re sure to pack a whole lot of memories into three days! Long weekends mean more time on the slopes. As of press time, Holiday Valley had 12 lifts spinning, giving guests access to 57 trails. On Monday, HoliMont will also be open to the public. It’s the perfect opportunity to check out the private ski area! January is also National Learn a Snowsport Month, and Holiday Valley will be offering some great deals for adults all month long. Learn to Ski or Ride packages (which include a rental, beginner lift ticket and lesson) are half off. The Bring a Friend deal will give your friend half off the Learn to Ski or Ride package and you get a voucher for half off your lift ticket on your next visit. Night skiing anyone? Nine of HV’s lifts run after dark, which means plenty of terrain to cover once the sun goes to sleep for the night. What better time to experience it than over the long weekend? For even more downhill thrills and chills, check out Holiday Valley Tubing Company. Located just four miles from the resort on Route 242 in Ellicottville,

Zoning Amendments Proposed to Village Board

By Caitlin Croft

The January 2018 meeting of the Ellicottville Village Board (VB) opened with minor corrections to the minutes from the December 2018 meeting. There was a motion to approve the minutes as corrected; a second and they were approved. Next, there was a

motion to approve the Department of Public Works Report; there was a second and it was approved. After there was some discussion regarding the sidewalk plows. Currently, the best machine is down and waiting for a new part. The new sidewalk plow that was purchased does not seem to be doing the job

needed with the amount of snowfall we have had this season. After this, Arlene Solly of Kazoo II voiced her need for help when it comes to maintaining the sidewalks in front of businesses in the Village. Currently, the DPW clears the roads at 4 a.m. when there is no foot traffic

Residents of Ellicottville and the surrounding area will soon have a new chiropractic option in town with the scheduled opening Tuesday, Jan. 16 of a satellite office for Bell Chiropractic Injury and Pain. The office will be located at the Ellicottville Square Building, 43 Bristol Lane, off Fillmore Avenue. Bell Chiropractic Injury and Pain, founded by Dr. Darren Bell, is a fullservice chiropractic office, with its primary location at 4535 Southwestern Blvd. in Hamburg. Dr. Bell said the new location in Ellicottville will also be a full-service chiropractic facility and new patients are welcome. Dr. Bell is a 1991 graduate of Life University School of Chiropractic in Marietta, Ga., and has been in practice for 26 years. Since that time, he has been caring for patients and said in a recent interview he works with patients of

all ages, the youngest being a newborn baby and the oldest being 103. He has assembled a team of like-minded medical specialists who are available for consultation and co-treatment when a patient’s needs require it. “I have advanced training in trauma and personal injury, so we spend a lot of time with patients in those situations,” Bell said. “I work very closely with all kinds of medical doctors including pain management, neurosurgeons, primary care doctors, and it works really well.” According to Dr. Bell, he has provided chiropractic care to many high school, college and professional athletes, as well as the former Arena Football League team, the Buffalo Destroyers. He was also the official chiropractor of the Buffalo Jills. In addition, he occasionally gets called to the arena to adjust

celebrities who are in town. In the past, Dr. Bell has been a frequent guest on radio and television and, for several years, he was host of the “Chiropractic For Life” radio show, which was featured on AM1230 WECK in Buffalo. As host, he interviewed various celebrities in the world of health and fitness including the late Jack Lalanne, best-selling author Dr. Bernie Siegel, Barefoot Ted McDonald, who was featured in the book, “Born To Run” and ESPY Winner Kyle Maynard. Bell said he is very familiar with Ellicottville. He spends a lot of time in the area, especially for recreational activities, and loves it. “Part of the reason I’ve always liked Ellicottville is I’m a runner. In the summer, I trail run a lot, so I go to Holiday Valley and run trails there. I’ve actually run trail races there a few times,” he said. “I’m also an avid road cyclist and I ride the roads in Ellicottville.” Bell and his, wife, Dina, live in Hamburg with their three children. The office is located in the Ellicottville Square Building, near Tim & Bonnie’s Pizza and the Ellicottville Times office, just off Route 219. Business hours are Tuesday and Thursday from 8 to 11 a.m. and 3 to 5:30 p.m. To make an appointment, call 649-9200. For more information, email the office at bellchiropracticonline@ or visit

and the gold medal. Figure Skating Figure skating is the oldest discipline in the Olympic Winter Games, making the first appearance in 1908. Currently, the program includes various events: individual men’s and women’s, pairs, ice dancing, and teams. Men’s and women’s single skating consists of a short program, which includes seven elements, and a free program, that includes jumps, spins and steps. Mixed pairs skaters first perform a short program, which also includes seven elements, and then a free program, which includes lifts, spirals, throws and synchronized jumps. In mixed pairs, skaters are judged on the degree to which a pairs’ movements mirror one another. Ice dancing is the only discipline that allows the use of music with vocals, and athletes are judged on how closely they adhere to the rhythm of the music and how they express the character of the music with appropriate emotion. Team events entail representatives of the singles and pairs skating performing a short and free program, and in ice dancing, completion of a short and free dance. Figure skating events

begin Feb. 9. Speed Skating Men’s speed skating has been part of the Winter Games since 1924, with women’s speed skating introduced in 1960, and team speed skating making its debut in 2006. The term “speed skating” explains the sport — athletes travel a specific distance as fast as possible. Twelve sets of medals are awarded in speed skating: 10 individual distance events and two team races. Both men and women compete in the 500-, 1,000and 1,500-meter events. Men compete in the 5,000and 10,000-meter events, and women compete in the 3,000- and 5,000-meter events. In the individual events, skaters race in pairs on separate tracks (the inner and outer lanes). Athletes switch lanes at every lap in order to skate an equal distance. Team events include three members per team. The men’s team event covers eight laps, and women’s team event covers six laps.

Speed skating events beging Feb. 10. Short Track Short track, a type of speed skating in which the athletes compete to cover a 111.12-meter oval ice track as quickly as possible, 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 fourperson 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 and

the tubing park offers hours of downhill thrills. All the fun of tubing without any of the work, Holiday Valley Tubing Company has up to 22 lanes, each 900 feet long with a drop of 100 feet. Some lanes are single width, while others are wider group lanes to allow for linking up with friends. A special Little Tubers area is also available, weather permitting, for younger children. A cozy warming hut is at the base of the hill with a snack bar, fireplace and restrooms. Or you can warm up and rest outside at the giant bonfire pit. Regular hours are as follows: Thursdays and Fridays, 4:30 to 9 p.m.; Saturdays, 11a.m. to 9 p.m.; Sundays, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. In addition, the tubing park is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 15 for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The Holiday Valley

Tubing Company is located on the corner of Route 242 and Bryant Hill Road on the north side of Ellicottville. A free shuttle service to and from Holiday Valley is available every two hours during operating hours, with pickup at the Resort Services Center. For more info, including rates, visit www. tubing. Visit the Sky Flyer Mountain Coaster near the Tannenbaum Lodge and get ready for a thrilling ride down through the snowy woods! The Mountain Coaster is similar to a roller coaster but it is low to the ground and follows the contours of the terrain. You ride alone or with a friend in a “car” attached to rails that pulls you up the hill, then it follows a zig zagging spiraling path down the mountain. You can control the speed of your car with levers on the

sides of the car. Children must be at least 3 years old and over 38 inches tall (without shoes) to ride with an adult, or 8 years and 54 inches tall to ride alone. The driver of a 2 person car must be at least 16 years old. Riders must be able to perform certain physical tasks to participate. The Coaster operates during the winter season from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday through Sunday, and also on Monday, Jan. 15. If you prefer not to brave the elements and stay indoors instead, head to the Village where restaurants and gift shops galore await. Warm up at Katy’s outdoor fire pit, sample some wine at the Winery of Ellicottville, catch some live music at the Gin Mill and Balloons, or even get in some bowling at EVL Bowling. With so many ways to enjoy the long weekend right here in Ellicottville, there’s no reason to leave!

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Martin Luther King Jr. Day This weekend, we remember Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. 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. 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.”

ECS Declines participation in WV Pre-annexation Study By Rich Place

The Ellicottville School Board of Education on Tuesday declined to participate in a preannexation 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 201516 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 pre-annexation study in late October after approving Costello & Silky LLC to lead the effort. The two districts involved — Ellicottville and Springville-Griffith Institute — are direct neighbors to West Valley’s southern and northern borders, respectively.

HV Freestyle Team Earns 12 Medals at Two Events

By Stan Pawlik

The freestyle skiing competition season is now upon us. This past weekend, the Holiday Valley Freestyle Team (HVFT) had team members competing at Bristol Mountain, NY and Waterville Valley, NH. Bella Bacon, Corgan Garrison and Caleb Darnley travelled to Waterville Valley to compete in the REV Tour freeride event. This is an open event for freeriders that are working to qualify to earn a spot to compete at Junior Nationals and Nationals. Bella led the way with a third-place podium at her first REV tour competition. HVFT’s mogul skiers had a busy weekend as well. Eighteen team members competed at Bristol Mountain in the Eastern Championship Series (ECS) and the Eastern Qualifying Series (EQS). The ECS has the top mogul skiers in the east, competing in single mogul competitions where each skier is individually judged as well as dual moguls where two skiers compete against each other with the winner of the run advancing to the next

round. The EQS consists of events in single moguls, aerials and slopestyle/ freeride. Saturday, there was a mogul and a dual mogul event for the ECS. Sunday had the ECS competing in a mogul event and the EQS competing in two separate mogul events. In the ECS single event on Saturday, Kaitlyn McGuire had the top result for HVFT. She had her best run of the weekend and narrowly missed out on a top 10 result - ending up in 13th place. Mike McGuire was the top male skier with a 16th place finish. In the dual mogul event in the afternoon, both Bryce Butler and Mike had wins. Mike led the way and advanced to the third round before being eliminated while Bryce was eliminated in the second round by the third-place skier. In the single event on Sunday, Mike again had a 16th place result while all three HVFT girls cracked the top 20. Morghan Socha finished in 14th, followed by Kaitlyn in 15th and Lauryn Socha in 20th. Sunday was a busy day for the EQS skiers, with two mogul events being held. Each event consisted of two runs, so it was a

Red Cross Announces Upcoming Blood Donation Opportunities

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. Upcoming blood donation opportunities for the Ellicottville area include: • Jan. 12, 1 to 6 p.m., Free Methodist Church Community Center, 41 S. Main St., Franklinville; • Jan. 13, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, 109 S.

Health & Fitness

Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness

By Kim Duke NETA & AAFA Certified Trainer

We all know that daily exercise is invaluable to keeping our bodies strong and functional. You know the old saying, “If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it”—well, turns out, it’s completely true. You may not feel this way in your youth, but as you age, the less you do physically will play a detrimental role in how you age. This being said, starting an exercise program can be challenging. Making the time to exercise, creating a balanced routine, and setting goals are hard enough, but add to that the muscle soreness that comes with adapting to that regimen, and it may be difficult to stay on track. After participating in some kind of strenuous physical activity, particularly something new to your body, it is common to experience muscle soreness, say experts. “Muscles go through quite a bit of physical stress when we exercise,” says Rick Sharp, professor of exercise physiology at Iowa State University in Ames. “Mild soreness is just a natural outcome of any kind of physical activity,” he says. “And they’re most prevalent in beginning stages of a program.” Exercise physiologists refer to the gradually increasing discomfort that occurs between 24 and 48 hours after activity as delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), and it is perfectly normal. “Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is a common result of physical activity that stresses the muscle tissue beyond what it is accustomed to,”

says David O. Draper, professor and director of the graduate program in sports medicine/athletic training at Brigham Young University in Provo, UT. To be more specific, says Draper, who’s also a member of the heatresponsive pain council, delayed onset muscle soreness occurs when the muscle is performing an eccentric or a lengthening contraction. Examples of this would be running downhill or the lengthening portion of a bicep curl. “Small microscopic tears occur in the muscle,” he says. “The aches and pains should be minor and are simply indications that muscles are adapting to your fitness regimen,” says Carol Torgan, an exercise physiologist and fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine. No one is immune to muscle soreness. Exercise fanatics and body builders alike experience delayed onset muscle soreness. But for the deconditioned person starting out, this can be intimidating. People starting an exercise program need guidance, Torgan says. “To them, they might feel very sore, and because they aren’t familiar with it, they might worry that they’ve hurt themselves. Then they won’t want to do it again.” Letting them know it’s OK to be sore may help them work through that first few days without being discouraged. So what can you do to alleviate the pain? “Exercise physiologists and athletic trainers have not yet discovered a panacea for DOMS,” says Draper, “however, several remedies, such as ice, rest, anti-inflammatory meds, massages, and stretching after your workout have been reported as helpful in the process of recovery. People don’t stretch enough. Stretching helps break the cycle.” Take it easy for a few days while your body adapts, says Torgan. Or try some light exercise such

as walking or swimming, she suggests. Keeping the muscle in motion can also provide some relief. It’s also a process of muscle conditioning. Torgan says delayed onset muscle soreness also has a “repeated bouts” effect. “If someone does an activity, they will be inoculated for a few weeks to a few months — the next time they do the activity, there will be less muscle tissue damage, less soreness, and a faster strength recovery.” This is why athletes often cross-train and vary their routines to continue to challenge and develop their muscle strength. It is important to distinguish the difference between moderate muscle soreness induced by exercise and muscle overuse or injury. “If soreness prevents you from performing daily activities associated with living and work, then that is too much soreness,” Draper says. “It can psychologically deter someone from continuing a workout program.” However, moderate muscle pain might go a long way to keeping someone on the path to fitness. I personally feel I have pushed myself the hardest when I feel soreness after a workout. Not that feeling no soreness means I have done nothing worthwhile for my body. Your goal should always be to train hard enough to stimulate gains in your fitness level and then to back off and let your body adapt to the gains. Remember— where there is no struggle, there is no strength. You will NEVER REGET WORKING HARD! “Soreness can serve as encouragement in a workout program because people like immediate results. Muscle doesn’t visibly [grow] overnight; nor does your time in the mile drop from eight to six minutes,” says Draper. “So something like soreness can give people encouragement that they are in fact working the muscle.”

see what various cameras throughout the district observe. The upgraded security system — which features 66 cameras both inside and outside of the school building — was paid for through the SmartSchools Bond Act, Miller said. “We are not sitting in our offices looking at this,” he told the board. “Trust me, we’ve got much better things to do. It’s there if we need it and that’s the beauty of it. If something is broke, if there is vandalism, if something is stolen out of a locker — we have the ability to go back.” Miller exhibited the various features of the system, beginning with the ability to drag camera views into a nine-screen pane with all cameras streaming simultaneously. With the click of the mouse, a specific camera view can be made full screen and, with some clicking and dragging, the camera can be zoomed to a specific area. The system features single and double cameras as well as cameras that take panoramic shots. “They are motion activated so they are not recording at all times,” Miller said. “If something is happening in the hallway it does pick it up and it does record it.” The motion activation feature reduces the storage the system uses, he said. Then, as he clicked on a gymnasium camera and peeked at an ongoing basketball game in real time, he used a timeline to rewind the action by an hour. “If we’re onto something within a couple of days, we are good,” he said about the length of time a recording is available for viewing. The cameras also

Middle and high school principal Erich Ploetz had a handful of brief updates since the last time the board met in early December. Among them, he informed the board the school’s robotics teams traveled to University of Rochester on Dec. 10 for their regional competition, with the best finish being 10th of 60 teams. The fifth grade team won the Core Values Award. He also said more than 2,500 non-perishable food items were donated through the school’s homerooms as part of Project Christmas. Also, Ploetz quizzed school board members following his recap of the middle school spelling bee, which was held Jan. 3. The winning word was “regenerate” but he said he was surprised at what he felt was the most difficult word, “agog,” which stumped a handful of students in the early rounds. The next meeting of the Ellicottville School Board of Education is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 23 in the high school library.

Camp Turner Receives $4,000 Grant for Wilderness Adventure Equipment

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 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 Counselor-in-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 threeday 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 15- and 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.

Special State Law Only Way to Resolve Great Valley Tax Problem

By Rick Miller

Barring passage of special state legislation allowing the Great Valley Town Board to correct a town budget error, it appears taxpayers are stuck with a steep increase in 2018 county taxes. More than 50 taxpayers attended Monday’s Town Board Reorganization Meeting at the Great Valley Town Hall where Supervisor Daniel Brown apologized for the error that occurred when the town applied much less sales tax to the town tax levy than was available. About $490,000 in sales was available, but only about $75,000 was applied to the town tax levy. Meanwhile, none of the nearly $500,000 in sales tax revenue was applied to county taxes. “It was woefully low,” Brown told the residents. “We could have used a much bigger amount. There are a couple of different avenues to try to correct it.” The town board had intended to apply the sales tax revenue to the town tax levy, thinking the town tax would decrease at the same rate the county tax would increase. The town previously had the county apply its share of the county sales tax toward county taxes in the town of Great Valley. Daniel Martonis, director of the Cattaraaugus County Office of Real Property Tax Services, said the wrong number was inserted into the budget. “If it had been the same as the county budget, it would have been a wash,” he said. Town taxes would go down while county taxes went up buy the same amount. “Unfortunately, I don’t see anything that happens before we start printing the tax bills,” Martonis said. Towns are supposed to get a letter each year about their next year’s sales tax estimate. One resident, Hugh Dunne, blamed the supervisor and the town

board. He said his taxes went up by $600. When Dunne suggested two town trucks had been purchased with the sales tax money, Brown replied, “Those two trucks had zero impact on this budget.” One man in the audience said, “I just want to know how you will fix this.” Brown said, “There’s no easy way. The best option is to ask the State Legislature to pass a special law to let the town redo the budget.” Town attorney Peter J. Sorgi said he and town officials plan to speak with State Sen. Catharine Young, R-Olean, and Assemblyman Joseph Giglio, R-Gowanda, in the next few days to see if a special law can be passed. By redoing the budget, residents with tax bills $300 to $500 more than the 2017 tax bill could get a rebate from the sales tax that wasn’t applied to the town tax bills, Sorgi said. If that does not work out, next years town taxes will be substantially less. It won’t be an issue in the future, he said. Matonis said in response to a question that the error may mess up escrow accounts. A woman standing at the back of the packed town hall courtroom said that

seniors on a fixed income don’t have the extra $500 or $600 to pay their taxes. “We’re screwed,” she said. A man in the audience asked if the board “is committed to resolving this problem next year.” He was told that everyone should see a savings next year equal to the increase. Brown called a special meeting for Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. at the town hall to bring residents up to date on the situation before the end of the month when town and county taxes are due. If people pay their taxes late, a fee and interest is added. “I’m sorry this happened,” Brown said. “We used numbers we thought were safe. I’m the supervisor. I’ll take the blame. We were advised to take the sales tax.” Councilman Gerald Musall said in hindsight, he should have questioned the estimated sales tax numbers. “As a board, we were all responsible. I was just as ignorant as Dan,” he added. Musall said he would like to see taxpayers get rebates this year. “It’s going to be tight as hell, but I would hope we’d have enough to give everybody a rebate.”

from MDA Engineers for $1,600 more to finish the GIS mapping project. All the data has now been collected and Phase No. 1 is complete. Now the data needs to be properly formatted so that it will be compatible with the Cattaraugus County GIS. There was a motion to increase the contract with MDA Engineers by an amount not to exceed $1,600; there was a second and it was approved. Next, there was a motion to approve the engineer’s report; a second and it was approved. Nick Dobmeier advised on the Sludge Removal Project, the tests were received, and all eight metals tested for by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act were not detected. The results will be sent to the Department of Energy Conservation and they will pursue quotes for sludge removal.

There was a motion to approve the Sewer Report; a second and it was approved. Next, was a motion to approve the Code Enforcement Report; there was a second and it was approved. Fredrickson advised on the Zombie House at 33 E. Washington and it is in the process of being sold. In Special Events, there was a motion to approve the Mardi Gras application; there was a second and it was approved. Last, there was a motion for the Village Attorney to investigate a new method for Sewer Demand Rates; there was a second and it was approved. There was a motion to adjourn in memory of Mayor Charles R. Coolidge, who served the Village as Mayor for 18 years, 1998-2016. May he rest in peace. The next meeting of the Village Board will be Feb. 12 at 6 p.m. at the Village Hall.

and minimal cars parked. Solly feels that 4 a.m. is too early and by 9-10 a.m. when the customers are arriving, the sidewalks can easily be covered again. She also noted that with a couple empty store fronts on her side of the street, it can be tough because they don’t get maintained by shop keepers. Mayor John Burrell then advised they are currently working with three new vendors to have sidewalk plows brought down for demonstration and tests by the DPW workers who would be using them. Trustee Spencer Murray thanked Solly for her input and said they will do what they can to keep up with this winter’s abundant amount of snow. Next was a presentation from April Hartloff of The Financial Guys. She was informing the Village of the new NYS Paid Family Leave Act. This program is mandatory in the private sector and optional in the public. This act gives employees paid

time off to bond with a newly born, adopted, or fostered child, care for a family member with a serious health condition, or assist loved ones when a family member is deployed abroad on active military duty. Hartloff advised that a decision must be made as the deadline was Dec. 1, 2017, but if the village chose to opt out they could opt in at any time. There was a motion to opt out; a second and the Village opted out. Nancy Rogan, Chair of the Village Planning Board, and Gary Palumbo, Village and Town Planner, were in attendance to present their proposed zoning amendments. First there was a motion to approve the Planning Report; a second, and it was approved. There are a few major changes: first, to eliminate the Floor to Area Ratio for the Village Commercial and Historic Overlay Districts, due to so many village buildings’ footprints equaling the size of the lot;

second, to reduce the size of accessory buildings from 75 percent of the principle structure to 70 percent. In the calculation for Floor to Area Ratio, they would like to only include the principle building in the formula. Third, change the Open Space to 20 percent requirement. Fourth, they simplified the lighting regulations. Fifth, to add specific uses for the buildings on the Four Corners Overlay District. Sixth, roof tops signs are not permitted. The last one caused some major discussion and that is to require a permit for sandwich board signs. There are some businesses that depend on their signs. Code Enforcement Officer Kelly Fredrickson advised that there has been abuse in the past and the current regulations are not being followed. A permit would create a basis to enforce the already menial regulations. Murray said he would get all the business owners together to help find the best solution for all. There

was no action taken on the proposed zoning amendments. Next, there was a motion to approve the December Financial Report; there was a second and it was approved. In the Mayor’s Report, there was discussion regarding fixed rates with Energy Mark, the Village’s energy provider. Energy Mark is working with the Village to get the best rates possible and the Mayor will keep the board informed as more information arises. There was a motion to have the Mayor sign the Inter-municipal agreement for Shared Services of the Town and Village Engineer. There was a change from the one that was approved last month, the line regarding the salary. It now reads they will be paid in accordance with the Town and Village Engineer Employment Contract. There was a second to the motion and the Mayor was approved to sign. There was a request

Celebrate Winter: Snow Day Fun

“Oh the weather outside is frightful” has never been more true than this winter! From frigid wind chills to white-out conditions, the past several weeks of winter have been unpredictable, which is why life in Western New York is a constant adventure. Since our homes and our vehicles are prepared for whatever comes, it’s time to prepare ourselves for a weekend of healthy indoor fun, as cabin fever and actual fevers are just as real a threat as lake effect snow! Nothing captures the joy of winter quite like a snow day (at least for the kids), but a day inside can be a real challenge for mom and dad! Making homemade play dough is a great way to pass the time and have some fun in the kitchen, too. To get started, mix 1 cup of white flour, 1 cup of warm water, 2 tablespoons of salt, 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar, 2 tablespoons of cooking oil and 1 3-oz package of instant gelatin together in a small saucepan. Mix until most of the lumps are gone. Cook over medium heat, stirring continuously, until the mixture thickens into a ball of dough. When the mixture feels like it can’t be stirred anymore, the dough has been formed! Next, place the dough on a floured cutting board and wait for it to cool (about 20 to 30 minutes). Let the kids help knead the dough, adding in flour until it is no longer sticky (about ½ cup). Now, you can add extra food coloring or glitter, or simply enjoy the gelatin color of the dough! Make more dough with other flavors of gelatin (recipe can be cut in half for smaller batches). Store the dough in airtight

containers for up to three weeks. While the kids are occupied with their new play dough creations, you can take advantage of the free time to make an easy, delicious dinner that will help you stick to your New Year’s Resolution, and keep the family healthy, as it’s loaded with immune system-boosting ingredients. Creamy Tomato and Spinach Pasta is chock full of tomatoes, an excellent source of lycopene, as well as vitamins A, C and K, which are all helpful in fighting colds and infections. The recipe also has plenty of garlic and onions, two allium vegetables with natural detoxification powers that stimulate immune response and reduce inflammation. Let the healing begin! To start, bring a pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add 8-12 oz. of your favorite pasta (farfalle and ziti are good choices) and cook until tender, about 7-10 minutes, then drain. While the pasta is cooking, dice a small onion and mince two cloves of garlic. Cook both in a large skillet

with 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until onions are translucent and softened. Add 1 15-oz can of diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano (or a plain can of diced tomatoes plus ½ teaspoon each of dried oregano and dried basil). Add ½ teaspoon of salt and stir to combine. Add 2 tablespoons of tomato paste and ½ cup of water to the skillet and stir until the tomato paste is dissolved into the sauce. Turn the heat down to low. Cut 2 ounces of cream cheese into small pieces and add them to the skillet. Use a whisk to stir the sauce until the cream cheese has fully melted and the sauce is creamy. Next, add ¼ cup of grated parmesan cheese and whisk until melted again. Stir about ½ cup of fresh or thawed spinach into the skillet and add the pasta until it is well-coated with the sauce.

Really Fun Kids' Lessons

We love kids at Mountain Adventures Ski and Snowboard Program! Our very own clubhouse, the Creekside Lodge, is conveniently located next to the Holiday Valley Lodge, just across the creek from the School Haus beginner's area and steps from the Day Care Center. After the full day class is over, kids may keep their rentals until 4:30 so they can ski with Mom and Dad to show off what they've learned. Mountain Adventures and the Day Care Center are open daily during the winter season. Penguin Hill is a special area for teaching 3 to 5 year olds snowboarding skills.
