Pumpkin Mania! By Mary Heyl

Of all the foods associated with the different seasons, there’s nothing quite like pumpkins to get everyone excited about fall! Walk down any grocery aisle, and you’ll be surrounded by all kinds of pumpkin goodies: pumpkin spice cereal, pumpkin pie flavored yogurt, pumpkin bread mixes, even pumpkin beer. Grocery marketing schemes aside, there’s a lot to love about fall’s iconic gourd and so many ways to enjoy it that you can make right at home. Did you know that there are more than 30 varieties of pumpkins? That’s right, like other kinds of fruit, pumpkins are grown in several varieties and they’re a member of the gourd family, along with melons, cantaloupes and squash. The pumpkins found at the grocery store and the pumpkin patch are most likely Connecticut Field pumpkins, an heirloom variety that dates back to the early settlers and is the standard color, size and shape for jack-o’-lanterns! All pumpkins are edible, but some varieties are better for cooking than others, such as the Small Sugar or the New England Pie varieties. Fortunately, the grocery store has taken all of the guesswork out of the process, but be sure to check your recipe and the labels before you buy! Canned pumpkin is just that—cooked, pureed pumpkin—but pumpkin pie filling is pureed pumpkin with added spices and sugars. Get creative with canned pumpkin and try one of these delicious, easy recipes that everyone will enjoy! A regular sized can of pureed pumpkin yields more than what’s required for a

Village Receives Grant, New ATMs Proposed

By Caitlin Croft

The September meeting of the Village Board (VB) opened with good news. The Village received just shy of $95,000 from NYS Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Programs, NYS Energy and Research Development, and NYS Aid and Incentives to Municipalities. The Energy Grant was from efficiencies in the Waste Water Treatment Facility.  Next, Ron Mavity spoke about his ATM Proposal. This is to install two ATMs where the telephone booths used to

The stat seems both alarming and surprising for a football team like Franklinville/Ellicottville: The Titans’ dynamic offense turned the ball over three times Friday night. But before any of those uncharacteristic giveaways, F/E had taken a 22-0 lead. In fact, that was the score 45 seconds into the second quarter. In a matchup of state-ranked Class D teams, No. 8 F/E’s start was so good against No. 16 Clymer/ Sherman/Panama that future miscues were rendered about

pumpkin pie—so what to do with that leftover pumpkin? For a delicious treat, try Chef Meg Galvin’s Pumpkin Dip, which is delicious at breakfast on a bagel or with graham crackers for a snack. In a food processor, combine ½ cup of canned pumpkin, 1 cup of 1 percent milkfat cottage cheese, 8 ounces of softened cream cheese, and 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. Process until smooth and store in the refrigerator up to one week. Kids (and adults!) will love a delicious Pumpkin Shake, Martha Stewart’s go-to recipe for leftover canned pumpkin! In a blender, combine ½ cup of pumpkin puree, 1 cup of vanilla ice cream, ½ cup milk and a pinch of cinnamon. Blend until smooth and enjoy! If you don’t have time to use the leftover pureed pumpkin right away, remember that you can freeze pureed pumpkin and use it in your favorite recipe another time! Although the pumpkin craze seems uniquely American,

pumpkins actually originated in Central America, and they are now grown all over the word, with China being the world’s biggest producer. However, the biggest pumpkin ever grown was in the United States: in Stillwater, Minnesota in 2010, Chris Stevens grew a pumpkin that weighed in at a whopping 1,810.5 pounds! While you may not be looking for a pumpkin quite this large, there are some important things to notice as you’re picking out the perfect pumpkins for your fall decorations. Whether your intention is to select a great carving pumpkin

or choose several pumpkins to decorate your porch into the Thanksgiving holiday, it’s important to check for firmness. Soft spots on a pumpkin, however small, indicate rotting that is already taking place inside the pumpkin and will soon overtake the whole gourd, even though it make look perfectly fine on the outside. The outer appearance of the pumpkin is important to take into consideration, too. Avoid choosing a pumpkin with any brown spots, even small ones, as this indicates that bugs have been chewing on the pumpkin and may have burrowed inside. It’s a good idea to check out the pumpkin stem, too. Not only do you want to make sure it’s strong enough to handle, but you also want to look at the color of the pumpkin around the stem. If it is noticeably dull, the pumpkin was likely damaged by frost, which will make it rot sooner. Stay tuned next week for lots of great Halloween- themed pumpkin ideas! Even if you’d rather not wield a carving knife, there are lots of fun ways to decorate your perfectly picked pumpkins just in time for Halloween.

The Biggest and Best Fall Festival

The weather and a great mix of crafters, artists and vendors came together to bring out families, friends, and an overall great crowd to make the Ellicottville Fall Festival the largest and best in the 42-year history of the event, according the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce. The weekend before and after the event saw large crowds who wanted to miss the traffic of the festival and enjoy Ellicottville’s merchants. The economic impact to the community is amazing. The two-day arts and crafts show saw untold thousands of people make their way through the booths and our fabulous shops. Guests, from toddlers to adults, enjoyed the weekend’s 80-degree temperatures. Thousands took the trip to the top of the hill at both Holiday Valley and HoliMont, taking advantage of some of the best views of autumn colors at both resorts. Holiday Valley was not only filled with leaf peepers, but people looking to get a jump on the ski season with a new pair of skis, or at least new to them at the Ski Swap. Runners and mountain bikers also reveled in

the warm temperatures for the annual 5K and mountain bike races on the hill. Overwhelmingly positive comments have come in to the Chamber of Commerce praising the blend and quality of vendors at this year’s event. Smiles on the hundreds of children’s faces at the carnival by the Washington Square building were a giveaway of the family fun that was to be had all weekend. Hats off to our local bars and restaurants for all the music in the village from Friday night through Sunday. Nearly a dozen venues hosted 27 bands. The food court on Jefferson Street was home to some great vendors with everything from sausage, peppers and onions to turkey legs, pierogis to bison. There were even shish kabobs, soups, fries, Asian noodles, beef on wick, fried dough and the ever-popular kettle corn. Over the course of its 42year history, the Ellicottville Fall Festival has continued to evolve, becoming a better, more family friendly event. As the Chamber of Commerce begins its review of the 2017 Fall Festival, the 43rd Annual Fall Festival, to be held Oct.

6 and 7, 2018 is already in the planning stages. The staff of the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce and all their partners will be working to make the event even better. We are proud that our event gives local charities the opportunity to raise an estimated $50,000 from the festival and provides increased income for our work force and business owners alike. The staff of the Chamber of Commerce wish to thank all involved in making the festival such a success. Special thanks to the DPW crew, Village Special Events Committee, Ellicottville Volunteer Fire Company, Ellicottville Great Valley Ambulance staff, Ellicottville Central School students and staff for helping with the cleanup. We would also like to thank local, county, and state law enforcement, the NYS DOT, the Ellicottville Library for managing our information booth, shirt and poster sales, our great merchants, our resident and non-resident home owners and all the various service partners of the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce.

meaningless. The Titans’ usual leaders led the way again in a 28-6 win that completed an undefeated regular season and secured the No. 1 seed for the Section 6 playoffs. “We came out and we looked fast and crisp, and that’s how we expect to look,” coach Chad Bartoszek said. “This team right here, the Wolfpack … they hit and they were big and they were physical at points. They made us work. You’ve got to tip your hat to them because they answered. Down 22-0, they could’ve caved in. They made us work, and we needed that type of game. We were in a physical battle.” On Senior Night, Brock Blecha, Sam Erickson, Griffin Chudy and Austin Grinols all played big roles for F/E (7-0, 5-0). Blecha completed 10 of 15 passes for 138 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for 52 yards and leading the team with 11 tackles. Erickson, Franklinville’s Homecoming king, caught a 6-yard TD from Blecha on the game’s first possession. The basketball star also had a pair of sacks in the second half. Chudy hauled in a 37-yard touchdown strike that put the Titans up 14-0 with 23 seconds left in the first quarter. On the Wolfpack’s ensuing possession, he recorded an interception when a CSP receiver couldn’t complete a catch and the ball popped out of his hands. Three plays later, Chudy ran for a 2-yard score. Grinols was responsible for two of F/E’s three second-half takeaways, forcing a fumble and recovering it after a long CSP completion and later intercepting a pass. “They’re continuous,” Bartoszek said of his team’s leaders. “Austin Grinols just stepped up huge towards the second half. I mean, holy cow, he made some plays for us. In the first half, it was Griff and Sammy and Brock. Those guys … they keep showing up. They keep playing ball. I think in the second half, we just got into a little bit of a dogfight.” After racking up 151 yards in the first quarter, the Titans were outgained 172-94 the rest of the way. Michael Beatman rushed for 94 yards for CSP (5-2, 3-2). “I am really proud of the guys, the way they bounced back after the first quarter,”

FE Titans facebook page photo

Wolfpack coach Ty Harper said. “You can’t get off to a bad start against a great team like that. They’re No. 8 in the state for a reason. But I think after that first quarter, after the first 12 minutes, I thought we battled and it was a pretty even game.” But even though F/E committed three turnovers (one interception and two fumbles on back-to-back plays in the fourth quarter), it finished with four takeaways and shut out the Wolfpack in the second half. “Our defense was lights-out, other than a couple missed tackles here and there,” Bartoszek said. And Bartoszek’s team got one key score after intermission to put the game away, with a 2-yard Blecha keeper capping a 14-play, 48-yard drive after a CSP fumble. Blecha kept the drive going with his arm, completing an 8-yard pass to Deric Leiper on fourth-and-5 and a 16-yarder to Grinols on third-and-16. The undefeated regular season is Franklinville/ Ellicottville’s first in four years as a combined team. The Titans will host No. 8 seed Portville (1-6) in the Section 6 Class D quarterfinals next Friday at Ellicottville’s Ray Gray Field. “It’s awesome,” Bartoszek said. “For me, personally, I didn’t really think about it too much because we’re focusing on bigger-picture things as coaches. But after the game, it was fun to look the kids in

the eye, ‘You’re a senior and you’re 7-0 and you did it on your home field. This team really worked hard.’” (Shawn Campbell is an Olean Times Herald reporter.)

Ward Accepts Allegany-Limestone Interim Superintendent Position

By Tom Dinki

The Allegany-Limestone Central School District Board of Education has offered an interim superintendent position to Mark Ward. The board agreed to offer the role to Ward, a former superintendent of Ellicottville, Olean and Salamanca school districts, during an executive session Oct. 10. Ward, who retired as Ellicottville superintendent in June, accepted the offer Oct. 11. “Mark is a very experienced superintendent,” said Dr. Joe Zimmer, board president. “He was recently a superintendent as of June, so he knows all of the current state regulations, and we believe he has the talent and skills to manage the school district as we search for our permanent superintendent.” Zimmer noted that the board will vote on a resolution at the Oct. 10 regular meeting to officially appoint Ward, who has yet to sign a contract. Allegany-Limestone Superintendent Dr. Karen Geelan announced in August that she has accepted the superintendent post at the Valhalla Union Free School District, and will depart Oct. 31. Ward is set to take over Nov. 1. Ward, 64, figured he would serve an interim role at some point during retirement, and while he said he didn’t necessarily expect it to happen so soon, the opening at Allegany-Limestone intrigued him. “I’d like to think my experience having been a superintendent in three different districts and 42 years in education helps along the line obviously, and what they were looking for is maybe what I could provide,” he said. “Having been in the business a long time, there’s not many things you don’t deal with.” The board only expects Ward to serve about four to six months, as it hopes to have a permanent superintendent start by March or April. Advertisements on the opening will go out in the next few

capital project. “That’s obviously going to be a big part of the next three to five years,” Zimmer said. “So we need to have someone who is going to continue those projects and continue to develop academic excellence in the school, continue hiring quality teachers and administrators, and keep the good reputation of the school district as one of the best in Cattaraugus County.” Ward noted that making sure the capital project stays on course is one of his main objectives, something he’s had experience doing at his three previous districts. However, he added his role isn’t necessarily to change or vastly improve the district — just “steady the ship.” “I’m not the change agent. I’m not there to do that,” he said. “I’m there to pave the way for the next superintendent so that he or she can pick up and just move the district forward in the positive direction that it’s currently in.” (Tom Dinki is an Olean Times Herald reporter.

days, and the application process will close by the end of November, said Zimmer, adding that the board hopes to conduct finalist interviews in early January. “It’s a relief for us to know we have a very experienced superintendent that has agreed to take over the position while we search for a permanent,” he said. The board’s search consultant, Western New York Education Services Council, conducted focus groups last month with district administrators, teachers, parents and students to receive input on the type of candidate they’re looking for. Zimmer said the board reviewed that feedback Oct 10. “They’re looking for someone who is focused on student achievement, someone who is a good communicator, someone who engages with the community,” he said. He said the board feels the district was on a good trajectory with Geelan, and is looking for its next superintendent to continue the initiatives that have already been started, including the district’s upcoming $17 million

be. They will be similar to the one currently outside of Katy’s Café. There was one member of the public who spoke out against it: “The line of sight would be detrimental to shops; the previous phone booths obstructed sight lines in the first place.” The ATMs will also serve as informational kiosks displaying events, maps of the community and have a live camera. This information would be shared with the police and village if needed. The proposal will be taken into consideration by the VB. Ed Rick of the Gin Mill spoke about the second egress installed to the side of Villaggio. Many of his complaints are civil matters and cannot be solved by the VB. The Code Enforcement Officer (CEO) is working with the owners of the building to correct any issues with this second egress.  Mayor John Burrell attended the 219 Bridge Dedication for Gerard ‘Jess’ Fitzpatrick.

the ceremony. Jess was an avid Notre Dame fan and it was his Alma Mater. State Assemblymen Joe Giglio ended his portion of the dedication with “God Bless and Go Notre Dame.” There will be a meeting regarding Fall Festival where all community members are encouraged to attend. “This will be to discuss the festival and find way to improve,” states Spencer Murray, VB Trustee. It will be held on Oct. 25 at 6 p.m. at the Village Hall.  Department reports were discussed and approved. During the Village Planning Board Report, the short-term rentals regulations were brought into question. Village Planner Gary Palumbo is considering the issue to see if the regulations are part of the zoning regulations on behalf of the VB.  There is a new committee to be chaired by Village Trustee Greg Cappelli and co-chaired by Ann Northrup regarding short term rentals in the

Village. “Northrup has done extensive research into the matter and will be a great fit for the co-chair position,” Cappelli stated. During the CEO Report, Kelly Frederickson stated he was satisfied with Fall Festival this year, but would like to improve upon tents and their exits for next year.  The new parking on Park Street was highly effective and used well during Fall Festival. The VB expressed their satisfaction with the outcome of that project.  There have been inquiries for four to five more dedication benches to be placed in the Village.  The efforts for the joint Town and Village Engineer position is moving forward. It has been narrowed down to three candidates and second interviews have been conducted.  The next meeting of the Village Board will be held on Nov. 13 at 6 p.m. at the Village Hall.

The Rotary Foundation for Youth Presents new Notebook Computers, Modular Drones and Robotic Cubelets. Over the past number of years the Rotary Club of Ellicottville has been funding equipment to provide special training to our local youth. Working with the Library The Rotary has been supplying laptop computers for anyone to use when in the Library, this year providing two new laptops to begin to replace older models. The Rotary Club of Ellicottville, in discussions with Library Director Laura Flanagan decided to provide a fun way to get kids involved with robotics and coding. Laura wanted to have some

after school workshops to open up these exciting disciplines to our local students. There will also be kits available for use by anyone interested in creating outside of the formal workshops. Working with the Rotary District 7090, the Ellicottville Club applied for and was approved for a grant to buy 6 Airblock Modular Drones and 6 sets of Modular Robotics “Cubelets.” The Modular Drones and Cubelet kits are a fast and easy way to inspire kids to become better thinkers. Cubelets robot blocks make robot building remarkably simple. There's no wrong way to build with Cubelets just snap the robot blocks together and see what robot behaviors

emerge. The drones come with magnetic attachments so configuration is only limited by the student’s imagination. They can build their drone without any tools in any mode: drone mode, Hovercraft mode, triangle mode, spider mode, etc. Then they can develop a code, using drag-anddrop graphical programming software to learn programming & aerodynamics, control the robot, and get creative to enhance performance. The Rotary District provides a matching grant of up to $2,000.00 to Clubs that meet the criteria annually. The Rotary Club of Ellicottville contributed $2,500.00 for a total of $4,500.00 to provide

the new equipment for use by our community. Laura said that the Library “Greatly appreciates the generosity of the Rotary Club of Ellicottville and Rotary District 7090 and the strong relationship that we maintain.” These are a great addition to the Library and will provide a fun and educational program for many who want to explore these cutting edge technologies.

Fall Bucket List: October Spirit at Local Distilleries By Jennifer Weber

With the end of October and Halloween around the corner, it's time to start thinking about staying warm over those long, chilly Western New York nights. Picture that sip of whiskey in front of the fireplace, just waiting for you to enjoy. One step further, imagine that spirited bottle coming from a local Western New York distillery. Over the past five years, a dozen or more distilleries have popped up in Erie, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua and Niagara Counties, thanks to changes in the New York State Farm Distillery Law. While many of these bottles can be found at your local liquor store, a visit to distillery itself becomes a weekend adventure worth a few hours of your time. Many of these local businesses not only offer tastings and onsite storerooms, but also educational tours, events and restaurants on site making each visit a true tourist (in your own backyard) destination. Time to check out a different kind of spirited adventure this weekend and pick up a bottle of local goodness along the way. Cheers!

Give for Greatness 2017 Grant Applications Now Being Accepted

Program of Arts Services Initiative of WNY to fund cultural organizations in 5 counties Arts Services Initiative of Western New York (ASI) announced that grant applications are now being accepted for its Give for Greatness program.  Grants providing general operating support in the amount of $1,000 each will be distributed thanks to several fundraising initiatives throughout the year.  Information and the simple online application are available atwww.giveforgreatness. net and www.asiwny. org.  Applications are due no later than Nov. 9, 2017 at 11:59 p.m.  Funding will be awarded to the successful applicants before year end.  To be eligible, an organization must meet all of the following criteria: • Have 501c3 or NYS CHAR 500 status (current or pending) or be fiscally sponsored by another organization that meets

this criteria; • Have cultural activity or programming as its primary purpose; • Be located in Erie, Niagara, Allegany, Cattaraugus, or Chautauqua Counties; • Have a current operating budget of under $300,000; • Receive less than $15,000 in county funding (or no county funding) for programs or operations; and • Be willing to recognize Give for Greatness and ASI as a funder if funds are received. Funds for the Give for Greatness grants were raised through several fundraising events throughout this year (2017): • Lawyers for the Arts; • Individual Donations; and • Program operating support

from Fund for the Arts. “This year ASI continues to offer general operating support for small- to mid-sized arts and cultural groups in the 5 counties of Western New York,” ASI Associate Director Jen Swan said. “We are excited to provide this unique funding stream to organizations, as it’s difficult for non-profit groups to find general operating support as compared to programmatic support from a variety funding sources.  This grant program is able to impact multiple organizations creating an array of arts and cultural activity in our community, while engaging with diverse audiences in expansive geographic locations across our region and ASI is proud to be a part of that.”

New Restaurant

Zerbian started in the restaurant business as a teenager, washing dishes at the Shoreview and then serving at the Brown Derby, both in Willowick, a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. He worked his way up over the years, having been a bar manager at Shooters in Cleveland, a manager at the Telemark and the Gin Mill in Ellicottville, and beverage manager at the Seneca Allegany Casino. Tom has been President of Cadillac Jack’s, Inc. since the restaurant opened in 1993 at the base of Holiday Valley. Cadillac Jack’s relocated to 24 Monroe Street in downtown Ellicottville in 2015. “It’s bittersweet,” says Zerbian of his retirement. “I’ve met so many interesting people over the years, many of whom have become close friends. I

Continued from front page

will miss that, but it’s time for the next chapter in my life.” Zerbian, whose wife Tina and sons Alec and Camron, have been key partners and supporters in the business, won’t be passing the torch. “Our sons have their own lives and fantastic careers. I can’t wait to watch them grow in their own ways.” The Public House of Ellicottville will be the third restaurant to open under the

direction of Sara and Frank Testa. They currently own the Public House of Buffalo on Hertel Avenue and the Public House on the Lake in Hamburg. They are excited about joining the Village of Ellicottville, as it has always been a favorite place of theirs. They will be offering a great selection of craft beer drafts and bottles, wine and craft cocktails. Their menu consists of house-made items using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. They aim to bring a comfortable, inviting, social gathering spot. October will be the last month for Cadillac Jack’s, one of the Village’s most highly rated restaurants, and one known for its casual approach to upscale dining. Look for the Public House of Ellicottville to open its doors in November.

New Rotary Club members are always welcome – come to a meeting and see what it’s all about. Meetings are held every Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. at the Ellicottville American Legion on Maples Road. If you’d like to donate to the Rotary Club of Ellicottville, please send your check to: Foundation for Youth PO Box 101, Ellicottville, NY 14731.

Cyclocross Returns to HoliMont Oct. 22

Bicycle riders love the fall and all the season brings— crisp air, blazing colors and cooler temps. Add in a zig zag course, some mud and a handful of barriers at one of the most scenic spots around and you’ve got a cyclocross race. HoliMont is hosting its second annual HoliCX2 race Oct. 22. Cyclocross originated in Europe and by most accounts it was a way to train during the off season for long bicycle races like the Tour De France. In 1910, Belgium hosted the first national cyclocross championship and in 1924, Paris, France was the location of the first international race, Le Critérium International de Cross-Country Cyclo-Pédestre. In 1950, UCI regulated its first cyclocross race which happened to be the world championships in Paris. It wasn’t until the 1960s that cross racing got some traction in the US. Participation grew threw the 90s bike boom and is still growing today. Boulder, CO is one of the country’s hot beds for cross and hosts numerous races and events throughout the year. As for the local scene, there are many sponsors and promoters holding races all over Western New York. Two years ago, a local legend and

“Heart of the Raincoast: A Life Story” by Alexandra Morton & Billy Proctor Along British Columbia’s remote central coast lives Billy Proctor, a fierce mainlander who has spent his entire life on the water. He became a commercial fisher-man at age seven and as his operation grew, so did his respect and understanding for the fish. Eventually Billy came to realize that his beloved fish were vanishing, some to near extinction, and he understood that it was time to take action. Originally published in 1998 and now a Canadian bestseller, Billy's stories convey his profound respect and admiration for the lands and waters that he has spent his lifetime working on and fighting for. This book is available at the Ellicottville Memorial Library in book format only. Also, check out the free Libby app to download over 15,000 digital books and audio books – all you need is a library card and a PIN number. Happy Reading!

Randle Patrick McMurphy, played by Rick Manzone, realized that being the only sane person in a psychiatric hospital was not the easy way out after all. McMurphy’s decision of choosing time in a psychiatric hospital over time in prison turned out to be a mistake. He finds it especially difficult to deal with the head nurse, Nurse Ratched, played by Tammy Catalano. Follow McMurphy as he takes over the yard and develops relationships with the other admits in the hospital. This dramatic comedy has humor throughout the show, but there is darkness as well. The show is directed by Edwin Heary, who previously helmed The Crucible and Of Mice and Men, and co-directed by Pamela Morley.

A Slice of Heaven Alpacas & Simply Natural Alpaca Gift Shop Randolph has something wonderful in store for you. Be sure to stop by the Fish Hatchery to feed the fish and learn about Randolph’s unique archaeological history. On May 19, 1934, when the hatchery was being created, pond excavators discovered what appeared to be animal remains. As it turns out, these excavators stumbled upon the remains of a Columbian mammoth! While most mammoth excavations yield little more than some tooth and tusk fragments, the mammoth remains in Randolph include both tusks, which have a combined weight of approximately 150 pounds and the skull, which weighs about 200 pounds. The remains date back about 12,000 years and have been identified as a Columbian Mammoth, not a woolly mammoth, which would have stood more than fourteen feet high. Because the mammoth was discovered on state lands, it is the property of New York State. This discovery was made on a Saturday, and by the following Wednesday, the mammoth remains were already on their way to Albany to be curated at the state museum to prevent further deterioration. To learn more about what is now the most complete mammoth

specimen discovered in New York State, check out the newly installed informational sign at the hatchery during your visit! Next week is Randolph’s Witches’ Night Out on Friday, Oct.27 from 6-9 p.m. During this fun, ladies-only event, Randolph businesses will be working together to bring you a fun night out on the town, with a Halloween twist! The event takes place in the adjoined buildings of Randolph Retail Company and Yarn for Ewe at 127 and 129 Main Street. The evening kicks off with a fun fall fashion show hosted by Randolph Retail Company and Yarn for Ewe featuring new fall fashions paired with handknitted sweaters, ponchos, and accessories—whether you like to shop or knit, you’re sure to be inspired! Enjoy relaxing on-site salon services by Senn-sations Salon and Day Spa, sample wine from Countryside Wine & Spirits, and have some spooky refreshments throughout the evening, which will be catered by Pete’s Place. Attendees can also take part in one (or both) of the make-and-take workshops taught by Creating Keepsakes and Yarn for Ewe. Never painted before? No problem! Vicki Reding, owner of Creating Keepsakes, will

teach you how to paint a lovely autumn leaf mini canvas in this workshop. Knitters will enjoy creating this little pumpkin— great décor item for the whole season—in Yarn for Ewe’s workshop (some knitting experience is required). The whole evening, which includes both workshops, wine and refreshments, is just $25 and is sure to be an unforgettable experience! Contact Yarn for Ewe at (716)267-2070 to learn more and sign up. Tickets can be purchased in person or over the phone! If you’ve never visited Randolph, there’s no better time than Small Business Saturday on Nov. 26. This holiday season, avoid the chaos of big-box stores and chains and shop local for your gifts right in Randolph! On Saturday, Nov. 25, Randolph businesses will be offering great sales and specials to celebrate this national shopping day and kick off the holiday season.

ASP News: New Playgrounds Planned for 2018

Two new playgrounds, at the Allegany State Park’s Red House Beach and Quaker Picnic Grounds, will officially open to the public in the spring of 2018. Most of the equipment at each site will be constructed from black locust in a natural style designed to encourage children’s curiosity about nature. Both playgrounds will have a fun mix of equipment for imaginative, explorative and active play, including a zip line and a giant spider web. The image is a computer rendering of what part of the Quaker Picnic playground will look like. Stay tuned to the park’s Facebook page for more info.

In the last decade, working the core has become all the rage.716 But core consciousness is | 592 | 2711 no mere fad. Awareness of the importance of a strong, stable core is the key to a stronger more injury-resistant self. Aside from the obvious aesthetic benefits of maintaining a lean, tight core, there are important functional

pluses as well. Imagine easing back pain, improving posture and balance and being able to lift heavy objects without strain or stress. A strong core allows you to execute everyday movements with ease, even as you age. Core training is an insurance policy for keeping the body performing at peak levels. There are three key elements to core training and fitness:

1. Breathing 2. Form 3. Speed Breathing. Think of the inhalation as an archer’s bow before launch, and follow it with a deep exhale on the positive or extended portion of the movement as if you were releasing the arrow. Aim for slow and controlled negative followed by an explosive positive. Form. Every exercise has its proper starting position, movement path and action. Maintain control through every repetition; controlled exercise develops strength, stamina, flexibility and ease of movement. Speed. Neither rush through your reps nor greatly slow them; instead adopt a neutral pace that you can sustain throughout the set while keeping proper form. You want to focus on completel exercises in a full range of motion and not letting momentum do the work your core should be doing. For best results, less is more: aim to lengthen the muscle, then contract and squeeze. Place the tension on the core muscles you are working without recruiting muscles you are not.

Sky High Continued from front page

350 feet. For rates and to make reservations, visit www. sky-high- adventure-park/. Those ages five and up can enjoy the Climbing Forest, which is like a 3D version of a rock wall, and only one of

three in the country. There are 10 trees outfitted with colorcoded climbing holds and the difficulty ranges from very easy (yellow) to very challenging (purple). Each climber is fitted with a harness that is clipped into an Auto Belay system.

Emerald Lawn Service Plus Residential & Commercial

Fall Cleanup • Snowplowing • Wood Pellets for SALE

Once a climber reaches the top of the tree at up to 45 feet, they just let go and the belay system slowly lowers them to the ground. There is also a kids’ area with two trees where the youngest climbers can climb about 6 feet up and climb back down. For rate info, visit www. sky-high- adventure-park/ climbing- forest/. The Mountain Coaster takes riders up the hill in their own car and lets them control their own speed on the way back down. While the coaster’s summer season is almost done, it reopens in the winter before Christmas. If you don’t want to wait until spring to experience the rush of Sky High, make plans to go this weekend or next! Visit for more info.
