Village Board Approves Vote In Favor of Small Animal Law Allowing Chickens

Upcoming Events Jan. 19-21 Country Weekend Kissing Bridge

By Jennifer Weber

The Village of Springville held their regular board meeting on Tuesday, Jan 16 at 7 p.m. at 65 Franklin Street and opened with a public hearing on proposed Local Law 1-2018Revisions to Chapter 60-Animals. Several members of the community spoke in favor of the revisions, with a few suggesting revisions under the section regarding licensing to only owneroccupied properties, the minimum allowed size of the run area and location of the coops and composting requirements. Board members discussed the delicate need to balance and represent the home and property owners’ rights and those of the individual

neighbors in regards to allowing chickens. The board agreed that the Village is concerned with providing a framework for the residents to live together and be neighborly and create a true compromise to help the Village move forward with the issue for the future and thanked everyone for all their hard work on this issue over the years to get to this point. The board voted in favor of the proposed revised law as presented with no changes, with one board member, Nils Wikman voting against the law stating “I believe one person on the board should represent the 300 people in the community who are against having chickens in the Village.”

In other news, the board approved Marc Genter and Jeremy Raynor as members of the Zoning board. The general election of the Village of Springville will be held on March 20, 2018, at 65 Franklin Street from 12 – 9 p.m. The offices up for election are Mayor, one term of four years and two Trustee positions, two

terms for four years each. Nominating petitions are currently available and must be filed at the Village Office, 5 West Main Street, Springville between Feb. 6, and Feb. 13, during regular business hours. The next meeting of the Village Board will be held on Monday, Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. at 65 Franklin Street.

Demonstrations included the art department’s graphic design class showing off their designs for the Springville Village seal and graphic for the police cars, a student safety video, an interactive periodic table, robotics, videos by the sports marketing class that promote SGI’s winter sports, theater, music and more. When the board reconvened, feedback from the board was very positive. Board member Chris Cerrone felt it showed

A Look Back

The Jureller Murder: Part Two Lackawanna. Strangely enough, a very similar case occurred involving Christina’s sister, Helen, who also lived with Mr. and Mrs. Prentice at the time of her disappearance. This week’s story picks up when the FBI was wondering if the two cases were somehow connected. The reports were starting to come in; the marks found on Christina’s dress were that of a five point star in the center of the heel. A factory in Ohio made such a boot with a heel like that. It was estimated that over 1,000 pairs of those boots had been sold in the Buffalo area. A driver from a trucking company says he saw a car parked near the top of the hill where Christina’s body

Last week, this column looked back on the mysterious 1936 death of Christina Mary Jureller of Springville. Her body was found on the Indian Reservation, appearing to have been severely beaten, and it was discovered that she had been pregnant, despite being described by everyone that knew her as a home body who never left the house. Christina’s brotherin-law, Harry Prentice, a former police officer with whom Christina lived (along with her sister/ Harry’s wife) dropped her off at the Springville train station, where she was seen boarding, but never seen getting off the train in her set destination of

was found around 9 p.m. on Wednesday night— a dark sedan with a stripe on the side and a trunk in the rear. Agents looked at Harry Prentice’s car, which matched that description. He was brought in and questioned. He also had a pair of the boots that had the same heel pattern as that found on her dress. He claimed he had gone to Carl Seider’s hotel ( the Western House) across from the railroad station and remained there until just before noon. He went home for lunch, when his car got stuck in the mud for 1 ½ hours. He went back to the hotel, and talked to Joe Seider and Mike Weber until around 6 that night, returned home to eat, and then came

LOCAL News Letter from the Editor A HEALTHIER 2018 YOU

Holiday The Art Concerts of Stretching By Carlee Frank

Hello there! Have you stayed on track with your health and fitness goals this week? So far, we’ve discussed the first steps to a healthy diet, figured out how to fit exercise into our busy weeks and talked about the realities of the current food industry. While these challenges might seem overwhelming now, remain dedicated and you will begin to see and feel changes in your mind and body. Today, we’re taking it down a notch, and relaxing our bodies with a bit of stretching. Yes, stretching. Often times neglected, or purposefully avoided, it is one of the most important activities for the human body as we age. It encourages flexibility, strength and healthy muscle tissue. If muscles are weak and unable to fully extend, we are at risk of joint pain, strains and muscle damage, and prolonged inflexibility can even result in joint damage. Stretching, on the other hand, can prolong mobility into a late age. For many years, trainers promoted stretching prior to physical activity; however, current research shows this may actually harm our muscles. When muscle fibers have been sedentary for extended amounts of time and then stretched, damage may occur. Therefore, the new suggestion is a quick 10 minute warm up, such as a brisk walk while swinging your arms, to activate the muscle fibers beforehand. Finally, during stretching, the Mayo Clinic states we should not bounce, but instead hold the stretch for 30 to 60 seconds. Now that we’ve discussed the science of stretching, onto the art of stretching. It can be done anywhere and at any time; on land, in the water and even in the air – cue visions of aerial yoga. For those of us unwilling to tangle ourselves up in ribbons suspended from the ceiling, however, there are easier ways to stretch. For example, waking up and stretching can focus your mind, relax your body and increase daily mobility; taking a stretch break at work can relieve stress and refocus your mind; and stretching before bed will relax tight muscles and allow you to fall asleep more quickly. Finally, stretching after a workout, when all of the muscle groups are activated, can lead to your deepest stretch. While stretching every once in a while is good, in order to increase flexibility and really benefit the body, stretching must become a daily or weekly routine. Finding time to stretch is easier than finding time to exercise. I have listed four examples above, but if you need more ideas, you can execute a flexed foot calf stretch while brushing your teeth, complete an overhead arm stretch while waiting for your food to cook, or do a fold over stretch while on the phone. As you begin to stamp out time for your body, you will become more aware of your movements and health. Actually, there is a whole practice devoted to flexibility and mind body awareness –it’s called yoga. Yoga was developed in Northern India over 5,000 years ago, and while its origins lie in ancient Hindu practices, many cultures have adopted it over the millennia and either discarded or changed its religious undertones. Now, yoga is practiced by more than 36 million people in the United States, according to a study by Yoga Journal and Yoga Alliance. There are even yoga classes at the Spring Creek Athletic Club and Springville Health and Fitness in downtown Springville. So, if you want to complete your weekly stretching in a fun and engaging group fitness setting, stop by a local yoga class. Many gyms with pools even offer aqua yoga classes for seniors, injured individuals and anyone looking for a unique experience. The weightlessness in water reduces pressure on joints and allows participants to move more freely, which then activates your muscles without the wear and tear. This week I challenge you to stretch in the morning, stretch in the kitchen, or even stretch at work! Let’s commit to improving our mobility and strength. Next week, we’ll delve deeper into the topic of healthy dieting –and the not-so-healthy diet fads. SOURCES:

Happy mid-January! While it can sometimes seem like these winter months drag on forever, keeping busy is a surefure way to make them go by faster. Besides spending my workdays (and some evenings) doing all the fun things associated with this paper, I’m looking forward to a busy week of teaching and learning. As I write this, the rest of my week includes going to the SGI school board meeting, coaching soccer practice at Colden Elementary, meeting all the kids signed up for SYI’s indoor soccer league, trying to catch the girls’ basketball game on Friday, coaching a soccer game on Saturday and skiing on Sunday. While my things are sports and social activities, there’s still plenty to do if they’re not your things. Consider volunteering, working out, relaxing, learning something new at area presentations, or trying out a new craft or recipe. Check out this week’s issue to find out about all of those things, as well as numerous opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. January is cold, sure—but it can also be so much fun! Enjoy! - Alicia Dziak, Editor, Springville Times

Meals on Wheels Seeks Volunteers in Springville By Alicia Dziak

If you are looking for a way to truly make a difference right here in Springville, Meals and Wheels for WNY is in need of volunteers. Since 1969, Meals on Wheels for WNY, a nonprofit agency, has been serving the Greater Buffalo area, to provide homebound seniors and disabled individuals with hot, healthy meals every day. The 24,000-square foot state of the art Meals on Wheels commissary is located in Buffalo and prepares almost 6,000 meals per day that are then delivered to pickup sites throughout the region. Volunteers at Meals on Wheels for WNY’s Springville site, at the First Presbyterian Church, at 39 North Buffalo Street in Springville, deliver meals to Springville and Sardinia. “Volunteers pick up their meals at the site location, as well as a list of the clients on their route that day and turn-by-turn instructions to go from stop to stop,” explained Rachel Leidenfrost, Chief Communications Officer for Meals on Wheels for WNY. “Volunteers may deliver in pairs (a server and a driver) or a volunteer may do a route on his or her own. Either way, the volunteer(s) go from house to house. They hop out and deliver each client a hot lunch and cold supper, speaking with each client for a few minutes.” Leidenfrost added that, “Volunteers provide crucial nutrition, friendly companionship and a wellbeing check. At the end of the route, the volunteers

return their equipment to the site and report any concerns (e.g., meals are stacking up in the fridge, Mr. Smith seemed out of sorts, etc.) to the office for follow up by one of our Social Workers or Nutritionists.” Volunteering typically takes 1-1.5 hours midday on weekdays. People typically deliver on a certain day of the week because it works best with their schedule, but it can be flexible. “We always need substitutes as well who might work on any day of the week,” Leidenfrost said. “One of the best things about volunteering is that volunteers can do it as frequently or as infrequently as they’d like, so it can fit into any schedule.” Meals on Wheels for WNY delivers five days a week, Monday-Friday. “Our most vulnerable clients receive weekend boxes with their meals on Thursday or Friday. These boxes have four freshly made and flash frozen meals that just need to be re-heated to enjoy on Saturday and Sunday,” said Leidenfrost. In terms of helping the community, Meals on Wheels for WNY enables clients to stay home with their cherished independence and their memories. “We provide them with the medically appropriate meals they need (regular, diabetic, ground, bland, and renal) to enjoy the highest quality of health possible,” Leidenfrost said. “And both clients and caregivers get peace of mind from having Meals on Wheels near. Our volunteers are in the home every weekday so when

she explained. “Reducing unnecessary outlays onto the healthcare system is good for all of us as taxpayers and community members.” Meals on Wheels for WNY covers 980 square miles in Erie County – going from Clarence in the north, all the way through the City of Buffalo and suburbs and as far south as Angola and Sardinia. (We’re actually the second largest program in the nation out of 5,000.) People who want to volunteer can call the office at 716-822-2002 ext. 21 and speak with our Volunteer Relations Associate Ashley Yerdon. They can also email her at ayerdon@

Community Rallies Around Palmateer Family

By Alicia Dziak

On Jan. 6, the Palmateer family lost their home to fire. Their house, on Hayes Hollow Road in Colden, burnt to the ground and along with it, all of their belongings. Everyone, including their pets, made it out safely, but only with the clothes they had on their backs. In the wake of the tragedy, the SGI community

has come together to offer their help. Last week, students at Springville Middle School held a “hat day” where students could wear a hat to school for a $1 donation. According to middle school principal Shanda DuClon, students and staff raised $375. According to high school principal James Bialasik, at the HS, administration

they notice something amiss, it often serves as an early warning system for families.” Leidenfrost emphasized that volunteers are vital to the program. “None of this would be possible without the volunteers,” she said. “We have 1,700 amazing volunteers, 400 of whom are in the field every single day. They are the lifeblood of our program. We are incredibly grateful for the time they give to us, our clients and the community.” She added that, while it’s not as exciting as the food and friendship and smiles, Meals on Wheels for WNY is also a great financial investment. “We can feed a senior for about $3,000 per year versus the $100,000+ that it costs for seniors to go into assisted living,”

LOCAL Business and News Springville Native Offers Counseling Services

By Alicia Dziak

In life, everyone comes across times when they might feel “stuck.” When that happens, counseling can be one way of getting back to where one wants to be. A new therapeutic venue is now available right in Springville that offers a variety of services that can help during difficult times. Meaghan Heighway, LMHC, has recently opened up an office at 57 Transit Line Road (inside the Assembly of God Church). “I offer a variety of services, including disability awareness and advocacy, individual counseling, family counseling, couples counseling and group sessions,” Heighway said. “Because of my experience with a physical disability and chronic pain, I knew that I would be able to use my history as a way to serve those in need. I am excited to be opening my new office, which will emphasize that therapy is a ‘Step on the Path of Wellbeing.’”

Heighway, who grew up in Springville, is happy to be returning to her hometown. “My parents are Rev. Stan and Dawn Handzlik, who pastor the Springville Assembly of God church, and have been in this town since 1985, so I was born and raised here!” Heighway explained. “I was homeschooled through high school by my mom, and also established strong ties with the community growing up, by using resources like the public library (still one of my favorite places to be!). I came back to New York after my Bachelor’s and part of my Master’s degree, finishing my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from Canisius College in Buffalo. I am honored to be able to serve in my hometown, as it has blessed me in many ways.” After Heighway obtained her license in Mental Health Counseling from New York, she was considering where to best use it. “I believe that my current office is the best of all worlds, for me – I can work in a community I know well, and also mold it to fit what’s needed in

the village,” she said. “For example, I will be doing a new group, starting Jan. 30, about using our New Year’s resolutions to make lasting change. At least in my experience, change can be challenging – but if we know ourselves and what options we have, we can make it stick. I’m thrilled that I’m in a position to be offering this resource to the town, because I know that I’m not alone in wanting to have my resolutions stick!” Heighway noted that everyone goes through challenges. “Sometimes we just need some extra support while we’re in the thick of it,” she said. “I think that this is what counseling has the potential to do – it can give us the tools and techniques to employ when life hands us the unexpected. I hope that when anyone comes to me, they will come away feeling encouraged, inspired and confident in knowing what tool to use for their situation.” At this time, Heighway does not accept insurance; however, she offers a sliding scale fee that begins at $50 (which she says is less

lot more real,” Wochensky said. “There’s a time clock ticking and suddenly you have to do it.” The addition will feature two entrances — one off North Buffalo Street and another ADA-compliant entrance from the building’s parking lot — with a common room before entering the theater. It’ll also have offices; a much needed aspect, Wochensky said. Plus, the work will allow SCA to show some visual progress to the community. “That entrance will be nice because you’ll see some movement,” Wochensky said. A future project will reverse the theater space, allowing for better basement access and improved accessibility, he said. “We expect the match to come from a variety of sources,” Wochensky said about the grant. “We will do a lot of foundation outreach for regional and even maybe national foundations to see our next step. The good news for Springville is that we are not starting from scratch.” Down the street, work continues inside Art’s Cafe that Wochensky said he anticipates opening this year. For the next few months, work will continue to be behind the scenes as organizers work on a

SCA since its founding. Most notably, the organization was recently awarded a $750,000 matching grant that will be used for two major aspects of its main building. “There are a lot of details we don’t know yet,” Wochensky admitted. “It’s for this building — for an entrance addition to the theater and some additional outdoor work.” It’ll also be put toward some “intensive” work at the theater itself that will reverse its entire layout. “It’s certainly good news and, in another sense, it’s terrifying news because it means we’ve got a lot of work to do to try and figure out how to match that grant,” he said. “It’s just an immense amount of planning to do.” As Wochensky pulled out plans for the new entrance, which will be located to the building’s south, he noted those drawings were dated 2012, a testament to how long such a project has been in the works. Now, it’s time to put a shovel in the ground, likely this spring, and get construction underway. It’s expected work on the entrance will be completed this year. Funding has already been raised to match that aspect of the grant. “This is stuff we’ve been talking about for a long time period but now it’s a

SCA Anticipates Another Busy Year

As Seth Wochensky sat in his office — a loose description given as the space is makeshift and routinely turns into the organization’s workshop space — he talked grants, construction plans, tax credits and more. But Wochensky, executive director of Springville Center for the Arts, also talked programming, didn’t hide excitement about the Art’s Cafe and spoke at length about not losing sight of the organization’s overall mission in the midst of progress. “All this complicated stuff I’m talking about aside, it’s really still about impact to the community,” he said during an interview last week. “At the end of the day, how can we make the best impact to this community?” For sure, there’s been progress for years at Springville Center for the Arts — located at the corner of North Buffalo and Franklin streets downtown. But to the everyday community member, it’s almost been misleading; plastic continues to cover the windows at the Art’s Cafe on Main Street and there hasn’t been much difference to the exterior of the SCA’s building. But that’s all about to change. “A lot of the work is stuff that you just don’t see,” said Wochensky. “Money has been spent on big ticket items that are increasing the longevity of the building like heat, for example.” At the Art’s Cafe, work continues on the inside of the establishment, as work has concentrated on electrical and plumbing, Wochensky said. And then there’s the building’s roof — a green space that is now accompanied by a penthouse, a room at the top of the stairwell that is nearly all windows. That work was just completed at the end of last year. Now a few weeks into 2018, this year could arguably be one of the most visually productive years for

financing program that will allow the business to be a community-owned entity. That will be alongside physical labor that continues to take place there. “We have continued to progress in the inside and we have been chipping away at things,” he said. “And we are really at the point now of waiting to pull the lever, the way I describe it, and really open up the floodgates for the remaining work.” He reminded the community the building will be more than just a café, with artist residences and a workshop also at the location. Work associated with the Art’s Cafe is also going to develop a management team that will be a relatively new concept to the area, he said. “We will still have employees in the traditional sense, but these workermanagers are going to be really interested in this project,” he said. “We are trying to meet other people who are excited about the idea, want to get behind the project, want to get involved and might have the skill set that will link to something.” All this work on the SCA’s two buildings is coordinated alongside its programming — including its major events like the Art Crawl on May 5 and the Gala on June 9.

the “diversity of the kids’ strengths and interests.” Board member Jessica Schuster said her favorite part was hearing the kids talk about their work, and Board President Allison Duwe agreed that the students were “confident and poised” while presenting. Next, the middle school math department presented materials from a professional training session they attended in November. This included a parent resource guide, interactive software used in the classroom and what teacher Cristin Benz described as a “compact version of a study guide for the entire year.” In committee reports, the audit committee will meet in March. Board member Jennifer Sullivan noted that there will be 10 policies ready for a first read in February. Business Administrator Maureen Lee discussed the budget calendar, and said that there will be one presentation of the entire budget at the March board meeting. Next, Moritz discussed the proposed P-TECH (Pathways to Early College High School) program, which is a combined effort between Alfred State College and Erie 2 BOCES. The Springville location would occupy the current district office, and would offer both electrical maintenance and computer information systems tracks. Students from SGI and other area districts would enroll in the program in 9th grade, and the program would last 5-6 years, at the end of which students receive a Regents diploma, as well as an Associate’s degree from Alfred State. Moritz explained that this would be the 38th program of its kind in the state, and that the closest location now is in Dunkirk, although that location offers different courses. Only those entering 9th grade can enter the program; however, students could transfer out of the program at any time. “We are delighted to offer this to our students,” Moritz said. Among the benefits to the community, she listed that it will be an opportunity to transform the district office into a student occupied building. She also emphasized that there would be no cost to taxpayers, as

the local share would be covered by BOCES, who would enter into a 15-year lease with the district. Moritz concluded her report by saying that the district is working on improving their recycling efforts, and that each building will be doing their own thing and creating committees that include students. “We will do better,” she said. In the administrator’s reports, Bialasik commented on the P-TECH, saying that he was looking at it as an opportunity and a good thing for the entire community. He noted that the high school will hold their midterms and Regents exams next week. “We use them as diagnostics,” he explained, adding that they provide a way to give students feedback. He mentioned that Green Springville will be starting their speaker series on Jan. 23, and that two of the scheduled speakers are SGI grads. Parent forums for juniors and seniors are coming up at the end of the month. The senior forum will address much of the year-end “stuff” and the one for juniors will focus on the changing landscape of financial aid. Bialasik also thanked the Education Foundation for their recent donation of a laser cutter for the school’s technology department. “It’s all about production speed,” he said. Middle School Principal Shanda DuClon thanked the board for allowing the math department to come in and present. She addressed some concerns at the middle school level regarding content students were bringing in on their personal electronics. She also noted that there will be no midterms at the middle school level as there have been in years past. Colden Elementary School Principal Marcole Feuz expressed concerns about elementary students and their social media usage. She also suggested board members wear sneakers to the February board meeting, which will be held in Colden, for some interactive activities with Playworks. The next SGI board meeting will be on Feb. 6 in the Colden Elementary School cafeteria.

Winter SPORTS Cross Country Holiday Concerts Skiing and Snowshoeing

By Alicia Dziak

Are you looking for another way to enjoy the great outdoors this time of year? Downhill skiing and snowboarding aren’t the only ways to get your body in motion once the snow flies. If you prefer a different kind of challenge that doesn’t involve quite so much speed, snowshoeing and cross country skiing both offer the opportunity for a great winter workout. Snowshoeing is a winter sport anyone can do. Snowshoes fit right over regular boots, and make hiking over the deep snow and through the winter woods a breeze. Snowshoes have an advantage over cross country skis in rougher terrain, as it’s easier to walk around obstacles, or to quickly change direction, and keep a tight grip on the ground. Cross country skiing requires a little more equipment and know-how, but also offers the user more speed and the opportunity to cover several times more ground with a single step than snowshoeing. While the two sports offer some similarities, trails for each are often not interchangeable, and it’s important to know the trails you’re on, pay attention to signs and follow trail etiquette. (For example, many groomed cross country ski trails do not allow snowshoers on them because they tear up the snow in a manner that makes them hard to ski on.) The southtowns of WNY offer an abundance of opportunities for both sports. The cross country trails along the top ridgeline of Holiday Valley and around the golf course at the bottom of the mountain are generally packed by snowmobile and if weather permits, the lower trails are trackset. The trails on top are open until 3 p.m. and are recommended for those with intermediate skills. For $15, you can purchase a 2-ride cross country ticket for the Mardi Gras, Cindy’s or Tannenbaum lift. Ride up, and you can either ride the Mardi Gras or Tannenbaum chair back down, or ski down one of the easier trails. The easier trails along the golf course at the base of the mountain are open during daylight hours and feature solar lights for a nighttime ski on the golf course, just be sure to stay away from the ponds that are used for snowmaking. Snowshoeing is also available on the lower slopes and on the golf course, but be sure to stay to the side of the cross country tracks. Adventurous and experienced cross country skiers can make use of the miles and miles of mountain bike trails located in the state forest bordering Holiday Valley. These trails are not patrolled or maintained, so take all precautions of a responsible back country skier. Both snowshoes and cross country skis are available to rent at Holiday Valley’s High Performance shop. You can also rent snowshoes and/or cross country skis at area ski shops: Adventure Bound, 16 Washington Street, Ellicottville, (716) 2174047; City Garage, 5 Monroe Street, Ellicottville, (716) 699-2054; Dekdebruns, 18 Washington Street, (716)2754; HoliMont Gear Up Shop, 6921 Route 242, Ellicottville, (716) 699-5582. Once you have your snowshoes or skis in hand, you can head out of town and explore even more. Just a short drive south of Ellicottville, you’ll find Allegany State Park, New York’s largest state park sprawling 65,000 acres. There you will find miles of trails, including Bear Paw, a dedicated snowshoeing trail. The park often hosts special snowshoeing events during the winter months. For more information, contact the Environmental Education/Recreation Department at (716) 354-9101 ext. 236 or like the park page on Facebook. For skiers, the Art Roscoe Trail system features miles of groomed xc trails maintained by Allegany Nordic. Trail reports can be found at www.

Winter Olympics 101:

Biathlon, Cross Country and Nordic Combined By Alicia Dziak

Only a few more weeks before the XXIII Olympic Winter Games kick off in PyeongChang, South Korea. The Olympics offer something for everyone — whether you’re an athlete or not, who doesn’t love a little international competition among the world’s finest athletes? The bonus is that they’re competing in sports we don’t usually get to watch live. Crosscountry skiing, popular in Western New York, plays a big role in some of these competitions. Cross-Country Skiing According to the U.S. Ski Team’s website, “Cross country is organized into two techniques: classical, where the skis move parallel to each other through machine-groomed tracks in the snow, and free technique, where skiers propel themselves in a manner similar to speed skating, pushing off with the edge of their skis. Classic technique is the original, ancient method of skiing. Free technique is more modern, having been pioneered by U.S. Ski Team member Bill Koch in the early ‘80s, and is slightly faster than classical — almost 10 percent faster on average.” Men’s cross-country skiing was part of the first Winter Olympics in 1924 and women’s was added in 1952. Several events make up this discipline — individual races, mass start races, the skiathlon, the relay, and individual and team sprints, all for both men and women. In the individual race, the skiers start at 30-second intervals. In the mass start

race, all skiers start at the same time. In the skiathlon, skiers race the first half of the course on classic technique skis, including boots similar to racing boots, and poles that extend to around the armpit of the athlete. The skier then must exchange them for skating skis and the stiffer boots and longer poles that can extend to the athlete’s chin. The time used to change skis is part of the total time for each athlete. The relay is comprised of four-person teams, in which the first and second legs are skied using the classic technique, and the third and fourth using free technique. The individual sprint events begin with a qualifying round and end with six skiers competing for the gold medal in the final round. Cross-country skiing events begin Feb. 10. Biathlon The biathlon, introduced into the Olympics in 1960, combines cross-country skiing and rifle shooting. Several biathlon events make up this discipline in the Winter Olympics —

individual, sprint, pursuit, mass start race, and mass start relay for both men and women, as well as a mixed relay made up of two men and two women. Competitions include various lengths of ski races interspersed with bouts of shooting. If targets are missed, various penalties are incurred. In pursuit competitions, the start order and intervals are based on the results of the sprint competition. The winner of the sprint competition starts first, and so on. Relay competitions include four members per team, with racers switching in the handover zone where team members need to touch hands. In the mixed relay, the order of racers is female, female, male, male. In mass start races, athletes start simultaneously. Biathlon events begin Feb. 10.

lineup in 1988. It is the only men-only discipline in the Winter Olympics. Nordic Combined events combine ski jumping and a 10 km cross-country ski race. Men’s events include the individual event with a normal hill ski jump, the individual event with a large hill ski jump, and the team event, with two jumps from the large hill and a relay. The individual event, also known as the Gundersen race, takes place in two stages: first, the jump, and second, the race, where the skiers with the most ski jumping points start first, followed by the next best jumper after a gap that reflects the difference in their jumping scores. The Gold goes to the first athlete to cross the finish line. The team event is similar to the individual event, except that teams of four compete. Nordic Combined events begin Feb. 14.

Camp at Allegany State Park This Winter By Alicia Dziak

It’s wintertime and Allegany State Park (ASP), New York State’s largest state park, is ready to be enjoyed by winter enthusiasts. What better way to enjoy it than to spend a weekend or more winter camping with family or friends? The park houses hundreds of cabins, many of them winterized. There are also full-service cottages, on both the Red House and Quaker sides, that include full kitchens, as well as bathrooms with showers. A good way to find the one that best meets your needs is to check out www. There, you can access park maps to find your favorite location, and read details of specific cabins, such as number of rooms and type of heat. Prices range, depending on size and location of cabins, and all this information is provided on the website. (Note that in winter, you must reserve cabins for a minimum of two nights.) In addition to the cottages and various styles of cabins, one of ASP’s two group camps is available to rent during the winter months. Group Camp 5, located between Quaker Lake and the Quaker rental office, offers accommodations for up to 72 people in 18

electrified cabins. The newly remodeled group camp features a large mess hall equipped with a commercial refrigerator, freezer, hot water heater, sinks, shelves and gas cooking range. Once you’ve made your reservations, the park is an open canvas of winter activities! Visitors can enjoy snowmobiling on miles of groomed trails or enjoy the scenery by foot, snowshoes or cross-country skis. There are numerous hills of various grades, so bring your sleds and flying saucers, and feel like a kid again! For the winter sportsmen (and women), ice fishing on the lakes is a popular activity. Even if you don’t fish, taking a stroll around the lake to see the “huts” out on the ice makes for a unique experience. (For more information, visit The park also offers special events all winter long, perfect for filling the time between meals. Third Saturday Treks are free guided walks to various points of interest throughout the park. As the name implies, these treks are held the third Saturday of every month, and are led by park staff, members of the Allegany State Park Friends Group or Historical Society members. The Jan.

20 trek will explore the wintery Bear Paw trail up at Summit Warming hut area. Hikers are asked to meet at Summit Warming Hut, site 16, at 1 p.m. and to come dressed for the weather. The hike will last approximately two hours. For more information, visit the Allegany State Park Facebook page or contact the Environmental Education/Recreation Department at (716) 354-9101 ext. 236 or After the hike, take in some live music in the beautiful lobby of the Red House Administration Building for the park’s “By the Fireside” series. This month’s featured performance is by Nick Kody. Influenced by a wide range of rock, blues and country music, Kody offers a unique and diverse interpretation of the Americana genre through both his recorded work and live performances. Whether solo or backed by the Creek Road Band, Kody’s live shows display hard work,

high-caliber musicianship, good friends and great times. The show takes place on Saturday, Jan. 20 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Whether visiting the park for a weekend or over a school break, it’s easy to find just the right balance between relaxation and activity in the park. Plug in the Crockpot before you head outside your cabin for the day and reward yourself with piping hot chili when you return from a hard day of play. Add in some hot cocoa, a card game, and great conversation and winter might just become your new favorite season to spend at ASP!

Celebrate Winter: Food and Crafts to Stay Warm on Cold Days

By Mary Heyl

Winter is the perfect time of year to learn something new—not only is January the time of year for resolutions, but there’s plenty of time to put them into practice! This month, resolve to try something new, whether it’s a new recipe, sharing some homemade fun, or learning to finger knit with your children or grandchildren. Snowy days mean there’s nothing but time to put these ideas into practice! Jolinda Hacket of loves to make Tortilla Pie, an easy, delicious recipe that will warm up the whole family on a chilly day! To get started, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine 2 cups of chopped onion (fresh or frozen), 1 ½ cups of chopped red pepper (fresh or frozen), 2 minced garlic cloves, ¾ cup of salsa, 2 teaspoons of ground cumin and 2 cans (15.8 oz each) of black beans, drained, in a large skillet. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently for 3 minutes. Arrange six 6-inch corn tortillas in the bottom of a 9x13” baking dish, overlapping as necessary. Spread half of the bean mixture over the tortillas and sprinkle with 1 cup of shredded Monterey Jack and/or cheddar cheese. Repeat the layer with six

finger knit. Finger knitting (otherwise known as French knitting) is a fun, easy way to make long, colorful chains that can be mini scarves for dolls and stuffed animals or braided together to make a scarf for you! All you need is a pair of scissors and some heavyweight yarn to get started. Kate from offers a detailed photo tutorial of finger knitting—a great way more tortillas, remaining bean mixture and one more for kids to pass the time, even while watching TV. cup of cheese. Cover with Clamp the end of the yarn foil and bake for 15 minutes. between your thumb and Serve warm and garnish the palm of your hand. If with tomatoes, sour cream, olives or whatever toppings you are right handed clamp it in your left hand, and if you like! For the crafty kid in your you are left handed do the opposite. Create a figure life, give these adorable glove animals a try! Nearly eight with the yarn around your first two fingers. everyone has a stash of Create a second figure eight gloves without mates, and directly above it. this activity is the perfect way to use them. All you need to get started is some gloves, needle and thread, stuffing, buttons, ribbons, pompoms and any other embellishments you like! Start by folding the thumb and two middle fingers that are not needed for ears inside the glove and whipstitch across the opening with the needle and thread. Next, stuff the glove with fiber fill and fill the fingers (future ears!) if you want them to stand up, or leave them empty if they will be folded over. Stitch the opening for the hand closed. Teach your little ones how to sew a button and create the face for the stuffed animal (for non-sewers or young children, use craft glue to attach the buttons and embellishments). Stitch the ears down and experiment by folding back the fingers or use the fingers as arms and legs! Even if you’ve never tried knitting and don’t have any knitting needles, you can

Leaving the second loop in place, lift the bottom loop over the top of it and slip it off the end of your finger, repeat with the second finger. You can now let go of the end which has been clamped between your thumb and the palm of your hand. Give it a gentle tug. Repeat the stitch by making another figure eight, lifting the bottom loops over the top loops and slipping them off your fingers. Continue knitting using this technique. When you are happy with the length, slip both of the loops off the ends of your fingers and hold them in one hand. Snip the yarn with your scissors and thread the end of it back through both loops, gently tugging the end of your rope. You’re done!

Time toConcerts Relax! Holiday By Jennifer Weber

Breathe in deeply. Welcome to January and a New Year! Along with the regular resolutions we all start off the year with—eating better, getting more exercise, starting yoga or mediation—why not start off this year with a smaller commitment, one you can easily accomplish with minimal effort and make yourself feel good? All it takes is walking in the door and committing to taking time for yourself to relax and breathe in fresh air, sweat out some toxins, float in absolute stillness, immerse yourself in gong mediation or enjoy a massage or spa day for relaxation. Start off your journey to stillness by taking a trip to a Salt Cave for a taste of Halotherapy. The Ellicottville Salt Cave located at 32 West Washington Street in Ellicottville recreates a “healing microclimate found in natural salt mines throughout the European Himalayas.” Inside you will enjoy time in a relaxing room made of all natural salt, wood along with a water feature that acts as a “natural halogenerating ionizer.” In addition to sessions in the salt cave, they offer massage therapy and infrared sauna packages. For more information, call (716) 699-2068 or visit www. Another adventure in relaxation awaits in a dark, still sensory-deprivation floating tank. Silver Essence Floating Spa, located at 6 Los Robles Street in Williamsville, offers the opportunity to escape the stresses of life and enjoy time in a private float room, floating and suspended in a dense water solution of pure Epsom salt without any sound or light. According to their website, “as you lay in absolute tranquility, every muscle is allowed to gradually relieve its functional tensions. Your entire body, including internal organs, muscles and bones will be, for the first time, completely rested and at ease.” The spa also has infrared sauna packages available. Helpful hint, check out Groupon for a current offers at the spa listed below! For more information, visit call (716) 568-7985 or visit Now for something completely different— why not try a Gong Bath at Yoga Parkside located at 2 Wallace Avenue, Buffalo. Yes, a gong bath. The website describes this event as a “meditative sonic experience, where the participant is “bathed” in sound waves from various gongs, led by Liz Holland, MM Percussion Performance of Ancient Alloys.” Bet you never thought about adding that to your bucket list! For more information, call (716) 772-8092 or visit www. If something more hands-on is your thing, head over to R Space Yoga and Wellness Studio located at 8823 State Road in Colden for a Traditional Thai Yoga Massage, which combines aspects of Ayurvedic medicine and yoga which “works the entire body focusing on the “sen” lines, activation of acupressure points, and simple yoga stretching.” Sounds pretty blissful, right? R Space also offers a myriad of yoga and wellness classes to choose from. Aerial yoga anyone? Want to learn about Essential Oils?

It’s been a busy winter for SGI’s wrestling team, whose athletes were recently spread out throughout WNY attending various tournaments. Wrestlers compete in 15 weight classes, ranging from 99 lbs. to 285 lbs. “We plan accordingly to get our athletes to the tournaments that are best suited for their abilities,” said coach Mark Vogel. “Our ultimate goal is always to get our athletes quality matches. We can drill and condition and wrestle live in practice all day long, but there is no replacement for actual matches against opponents from other schools. Because of this, we’ll may send several athletes to a JV tournament where they’re more likely to get 4-5 meaningful matches against athletes of their own caliber, while another group of wrestlers may go to a Varsity tournament elsewhere.” The first weekend of January brought much success to the Griffins. In JV action, Nick Brown and Aaron Keyser took first place at the Franklinville tournament, while Rhett Butzer and Devin Hitchcock took third place. Hayden Taylor, Nate Weber and Sam Weber each took fourth place. At the Ripley tournament, Quenten Leicht took second place, Shilo Rogers took fourth place and Jared Hecht wrestled excellently, finishing with a record of 3-2. Lastly, at one of the biggest tournaments in the state, Mikey Evans placed second at the Officials tournament at Niagara County Community College. “In New York State, the number of athletic competitions are based on a point system, and wrestlers are able to earn 20 points over the course of a season,” Vogel explained. “Individual dual meets count as one point and tournaments

count as two points. Teams will typically have eight dual meets, leaving athletes 12 points for tournaments. As a result, the maximum number of tournaments athletes may participate in is six. Those athletes looking to wrestle in the postseason benefit from maxing out their points and therefore benefit from wrestling in all six tournaments.” As Vogel and the team look ahead to the remainder of the season, he noted, “We have a decent mix of veteran wrestlers looking to advance deep into the postseason and newer wrestlers still learning the sport and working towards that ‘next level.’” According to Vogel, freshman wrestler Mikey Evans won the Division II 99-lb. weight class in section 6 last year and will look to build upon his success heading into the postseason. “We’ve had some great wrestling coming out of the 120 and 126-lb. weight classes from Jared Hecht, Nate Cottom, Hayden Taylor and Nick Brown,” Vogel added. “We can enter two athletes per weight class for the post season so we will continue to see how things shake out and have those discussions as a team when we get closer to that point.” Vogel also said that Shilo Rogers has been a crucial wrestler for the team at the 106 and 113-lb. weight classes, and that Quenten Leicht has come on strong at 182 lbs. and has been a positive influence in the practice room since starting. “He started late in the season for us, but we’re thrilled he’s there, and as a sophomore, he’ll be an integral part of the team for the foreseeable future,” Vogel said of Leicht. Come cheer on the Griffins wrestlers on Friday, Jan. 26 when they take on Depew/Cleve Hill at home.

Varsity Girls’ Basketball, Coach Bob Gainey

The Varsity girls basketball team played host to Iroquois last Thursday night and lost 67-31. Despite the lopsided loss, the Lady Griffs played hard for all 32 minutes and gave themselves multiple opportunities to stay in the game. Ryan Stedman played aggressively on the inside and perimeter, Grace Zabawa was excellent getting the ball out in the open court, Sydney Rosati was tough at the top of the zone defensively, and Mackenzie Engel was a physical presence on the interior. Ivette Lewandowski was fantastic, scoring 15 points on the night and battling on both ends of the floor. She showed a lot of toughness and heart throughout the game. Varsity Bowling, Coach Kevin Farner

The Springville boys and girls varsity bowling team competed in two road matches last week, Jan. 10 at Lackawanna and Jan. 11 at Eden. The boys suffered their first defeat of the season at Lackawanna in a tight 4-3 contest. The home team won the total pin fall by only 12 pins (3915-3903), and that was the point that ultimately decided the match. The Griffs were once again led by their standout senior Nick Abdo with a 224 high game and a 640 three-game series. Other notable scores: Gage Marvin 202-538, Matt Warner 204, Matt Agle 200 and A.J. Slippy 190. The boys bounced right back into the win column the next day at Eden, bringing home a 5-2 decision. It was a very balanced victory, led by Warner with 554, Emmitt Collins 551, Marvin 549, and Abdo 541. Tom Starks also pitched in with a 190 game. The girls won both of their matches with 7-0 shutouts. At Lackawanna, Cece Krezmien led the scoring with personal highs of 227-575. Beth Schneider added a personal high 526 series, and Emily Leverentz chipped in a 480. The Eden match was the Lady Griffs’ top team effort of the year. The 10 girls who participated in the match had a very respectable average score of 149 per game. Emily Leverentz once again shined with 231-549, Beth Schneider shot 200-504, Megan Schneider 191, and Krezmien 193. The games rolled by the Schneider sisters were both personal highs. Both teams now stand at 5 wins, 1 loss and have punched their tickets to the Section 6 championships. The teams wrap up regular season play with home matches Jan. 16 versus J.F.K., Jan. 17 against Pioneer, and away contests the Jan. 18 and 24 at Holland and Pioneer, respectively.

On Jan. 13, the SYI Griffins U16 girls’ soccer team won 3-2 over Holland. It was a fight to the finish, and the game winning goal came with 40 seconds left on the clock.

Register Now for Universal Pre-K Pending approval of the New York State Budget, the Springville-Griffith Institute Central School district is anticipating operating a Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) program for the 2017-2018 school year. S-GI will continue to serve students for 3 hours a day, 5 days a week, for 180 days on the traditional S-GI school calendar. We continue to proudly partner with the Early Bird Child Care Centers. The primary purpose of the UPK program is to provide four-year-old children with the opportunity to access high-quality programs that prepare them for future school success through the development of strong foundational skills in early literacy and mathematics. Science and social studies themes are also explored. The goal is to encourage and support student learning using a studentcentered approach utilizing strong instructional content that is tied directly to the New York State Common Core Pre-K Standards. If your child is currently receiving special education services through the CPSE, please contact Kathryn Werner, Director of Special Education at 592-3256 before completing this form. To be eligible, your child: • Must be age four (4) by December 1, 2018. (A child who is age-eligible to attend kindergarten is not eligible

for the UPK program). • Must be a resident of the Springville-Griffith Institute Central School District (Section 3602-e of Education Law). • Must meet all medical record and immunization requirements for school attendance. • Parents must make a commitment to regular daily attendance. The Springville-Griffith Institute Central School District UPK Program offers an equal opportunity for all eligible students to participate in one of the 60 projected slots. A lottery will be held to determine enrollment for September 2018. Therefore, if more than 60 applications are received, students not selected in the lottery process will be added to a waiting list should a slot open during the course of the school year. Whether or not a child receives morning or afternoon UPK services is determined by the child’s position in the lottery draw. Families with multiples (twins, triplets) will be drawn as one during the lottery in an effort to keep families together. If you are interested in your child attending a UPK program for the 2018-2019 school year, please complete the survey application, available on the district website at under the Academics and Universal Pre-K link.

back to the bar a little after 7 p.m. He denied knowing that Christinia was pregnant and said he had no idea who the father might have been. He knew of no plans for an abortion, and claimed that he himself had not been intimate with her. He also claimed he had nothing to do with Helen, the older sister’s, disappearance six years earlier. During the investigation, it was reported by the Orchard Park Police that a man named William Dunn had information—that while he was waiting for a bus on the corner of Davis and West Quaker on Oct. 7 around 11 p.m., he noticed a couple arguing in a dark Ford V-8 coupe. The woman left the car, and he heard the man say he would agree to whatever she wanted. She returned to the car and it headed west on Quaker. Dunn identified the photo of Christina as the woman he saw. He did not get a good look at the gentleman with her. At a service station down the road from there, the owner of the station, Ed Bain, said that a dark colored coupe had stopped, where a gentleman had purchased some ginger ale. He got a good look at the couple— she had been crying, her hat was off and they were using the glove box lid as a tray for their drinks. Bain also IDed a photo of Christina, and gave a description of the man with her. With no evidence at the girl’s home to link her to any man, the authorities felt little doubt that she had met her death of an ill-fated association with someone who was responsible for her condition. What about Helen Jureller? Although she was declared legally dead by the Surrogate Court in Buffalo, there is not one single record available to throw any light on the circumstances of her disappearance. Harry Prentice was the driving force behind the declaration, only two years after her disappearance. Those that knew Helen said she was an attractive 22-year-old, dark haired and popular with everyone. She was employed as a waitress at the Melba Inn (New Canaan, Ct. where they lived) and Oskar Jacobsen, a cook at the same place, was very fond of Helen. Harry Prentice did not like her dating Oskar, and was usually waiting for Helen when she got off work. One night, following a banquet, she did not finish her shift until 11 p.m.; a guest offered to take her home since he did not think a young lady should be out so late alone. When they arrived home, a police car was there and Harry Prentice (remember, he worked for the police) got out of the car; he was mad. Harry took the girl by the neck and pulled her out of the car, and then yelled at the driver. Helen was dismissed from her job due to the pregnancy. Harry took Helen to the railroad station where she was going to visit some family. She did board the train, but was never heard from again. There was no evidence to implicate Harry Prentice. Now you must make up your own mind… what happened? Who is guilty? Come down and read more at the Lucy Bensley Center, 23 North Buffalo Street in Springville. The Center is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the second and fourth Sundays of the month from 2 to 4 p.m. For more info, call (716) 592-0094.
