The End of World War I and the American Legion By Jolene Hawkins

One hundred years ago, in 1918 — what was going on? You could buy Shredded Wheat for 11 cents a box, watch Dustin Farnum play Davy Crocket, go to a barn dance and hear a five-piece orchestra from Buffalo play or Archie Warner and his group with fiddle and banjo play. A boxed lunch and dance was only $1. The newspapers had ads in them saying “men wanted” for the Army, Navy and Marines. The papers also featured tractors and equipment for plowing or harvesting, school events, dances, plays, football and other sports and World War I was coming to an end.

There is a prominent building in the heart of Springville with a black and white façade, and inside a spiral staircase reaches upstairs where a piano sits at the ready. You may have eaten here, had drinks here, or simply walked by, but one thing is certain: the Legacy has lived up to its name in Springville. During its 12-year absence, hundreds of individuals waited eagerly

When you read the newspaper, you were able to follow what was going on, and one thing that the newspapers stated, over and over again, was that American patriotism will help us win the war. Through the Red Cross, where a lot of the groups would meet once a week, local families were making and donating items for the soldiers — mufflers, socks, sweaters, quilts, dried fruit, even canning meat sometimes —whatever they could do here and send to the boys. And they were helping on the home front as well for the families left behind, assisting them with wood to warm their houses and food. But what

project work taking place this year at the school campus. And after investigation nearly a dozen different locations in recent weeks and not finding an alternative, organizers decided to cancel

the festival but anticipate its return in 2019 again behind the high school. “It’s a tough one to make but that’s why I want to get the word out,” said chairman Joan Taylor about the decision.

the first meeting at the new location was in the summer of 1993. For six weeks in 1919, our post was called the L. A. Thurber post after Lynn Thurber, in honor of one of our boys who made the

supreme sacrifice in France. By a majority of the votes in the same year, the Post name was changed to the Concord American Legion Post 431 and has remained so since.

happened when the men came home? Was there any help then? The American Legion was organized by service men for service men. Here in the Village of Springville, Town of Concord, the American Legion had 35 members by 1919 and they met in several locations — a room in the Red Cross, as well as some rooms above businesses —before they got a more permanent location in the log cabin that had been made for the GAR. As their membership grew, they needed more room and, in 1991, they broke ground on the location where they are now. With many volunteers from Concord Post No. 431,

The mid-winter recess is here, and with it, an abundance of fun activities to be had. Whether you are hitting the shops, hitting the slopes, or just looking to try or learn something new, this is the time to do it. There are volunteer opportunities, fundraisers, breakfasts, speakers, special events and everything in between coming up in Springville over the break. Take a look at this week’s issue to plan your fun! Alicia Dziak, Editor, Springville Times

A Legacy to Remember Continued from front page

congenial, so homey, that it’s sort of like their own living room,” Winkey said. The Legacy is uniquely designed so that lunch on a Tuesday afternoon and a special anniversary meal on Saturday night fit seamlessly within the restaurant. Winkey said the two-floor building offers variety to his guests. If you want a more casual setting for drinks with friends, downstairs is right for you; however, if you would prefer a quieter and more reserved setting, upstairs is your match. Winkey said the Legacy is an effort to do something beneficial for the town and noted that his adoration for Springville stems from his father, Theodore Winkey. As mayor in the 1950s, Theodore was deeply connected to the residents, which, according to Winkey, has influenced the restaurant’s menu. While it features delicious burgers,

pasta and soups, there are many other hidden gems on its pages. For example, Garlock’s Scacciata is a tribute to the life of Springville-native Dave Garlock. “Basically, it’s a fancy submarine sandwich concept, which really is Dave,” Winkey said. He wants items such as Garlock’s Scacciata to be a tip of the hat to the individuals who’ve made Springville what it is today. Eventually he would like a large part of the menu to reflect these individuals’ legacies, and so far, there are three mouthwatering options. The next tribute meal is called the Zilinski Brothers Triple Play Sandwich. You may have visited Community Park for the Firemen’s Carnival, an SGI baseball game, or the 4th of July fireworks display, but most of us don’t know the

park’s history. Winkey said the Zilinski brothers loved baseball so much that in the aftermath of World War II they purchased a plot of land near town and placed a baseball diamond on it. “I named it the triple play because in all of those innings there’s nothing more anticipated for a baseball fan than a triple play,” Winkey said. No matter what option you choose, Winkey asserted that your meal will be superlative. Over the next three or four months, the restaurant will be in an introductory phase. So, while the food and wine options are currently numerous, they will be whittled down as guests choose favorites. “We’ve done that on purpose to allow people to tell us what they like,” Winkey said. Therefore, he urges food lovers to come and sample

the menu and provide feedback. His wife Kathy, he added laughing, sampled the stuffed peppers dish, and although they had been deep in conversation prior to the meal, all talking stopped while she oohed and ahhed over the food. The Legacy closed for a little over a decade so that the Winkey family could enjoy time together, but now they are ready to again be the talk of the town. Doors open at 11 a.m. every day except Sunday, when they are closed, and shut at 7 p.m. on Monday, 9 p.m. on Tuesday and 10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Stop by for a delicious meal, or check out their Facebook page for more information.

“I don’t believe it serves the residents of town and village best,” he said. “I think there is still a lot of room for development along the existing commercial corridor and, I guess, just from an emotional standpoint, I hate to see that land turned over.” Lia Oprea of Sardinia, who said she is looking to move to Springville, also voiced concern at the meeting. “I urge you in your planning not to focus on the industrialization, the commercialization, but to focus on what people come to Springville for,” she told the board. Also speaking was Mark Hebdon, who said he has family who own land in the impacted area and added he is concerned over how land usage could change

moving forward if such a commercial area was created. Town Supervisor Clyde Drake said he would forward all concerns to the comprehensive plan’s master committee, which has been charged with working with Wendel planners to create the plan. The document is expected to be finalized by March 1 before beginning the potential adoption process by the town board. Also at the meeting, councilman Philip Drozd, who is a representative on the Concord Library Board, informed the town board the library has been operating without a librarian since Jan. 20 after director Bridgette Heintz resigned to accept a library position on Grand Island. Drozd said the board

hosted interviews Feb. 1 and that no decision had been made when he reported to the board on Feb. 8. In business at the town board meeting on Feb. 9, the board: - noted they are looking for a chest freezer for the dog control officer because the current freezer is no longer operational. The freezer is used to store dog carcasses found along the road until eventual transport for burial. Those willing to make a donation are asked to call the town clerk at 592-4948; - appointed Morgan Nellis to recreation attendant at the Concord Senior Center to replace Susan Borst; - approved the Cold War tax exemption following a public hearing. The next Concord Town Board meeting will be held on Thursday, March 8.

Public Comments on Comprehensive Plan at Concord Town Board Meeting

By Rich Place

Four area residents spoke up against the creation of the Zoar Valley Road Extension Commercial Area, a suggested addition to the town of Concord’s recent comprehensive plan, at the town’s board meeting on Feb. 8. All four residents — including two who live on land that would be impacted — were against the proposal, which was most recently discussed at the public information meeting on the comprehensive plan in mid-January. The suggested idea, which would turn part of an area near the Zoar Valley Road Extension into a place for commercial development, was very much in its infancy and previously met with resistance from residents at the mid-January meeting. “We love the land — it’s a unique spot,” said resident Judy Wright, who said she owns land on both sides of Spooner’s Creek. “It’s something I want to leave my grandchildren, my greatgrandchildren. And ... when people come in they can drive through this beautiful area and see in the fall how beautiful it is.” Seth Wochensky, another community member, advocated against the idea as he had at the comprehensive plan meeting in mid-January, again calling it “sprawl.”

LOCAL Business Lions Club Hosts Annual Fundraiser Breakfast Feb. 18

By Jennifer Weber

The 55th annual Springville Lions Club All You Can Eat Pancake and Sausage Breakfast will be held on Sunday, Feb. 18 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Springville Volunteer Fire Department on West Main Street in Springville. The cost for adults is $9 and children ages 5 and under are free. “In the past, the Boy Scouts have helped us with this event so we plan on making a donation to the club with a portion of the

proceeds of this breakfast,” said Jim Miller, vice president of the Lions Club. “Additional money raised will go into the general fund, which helps support different projects through the year such as 80-90 meals for the community on Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas and, in the past, eye cameras for children in the schools.” The club is looking forward to serving about 350 to 400 people this coming weekend at the breakfast. Other fundraisers

include their Chicken BBQ during election years held at St. Aloysius hall and providing the food at the annual Lamb and Webster Auction in the fall. The Lions Club serves the needs of the local community by volunteering for various projects including fighting blindness by conducting vision screenings and raising awareness of eye disease, feeding the hungry, aiding seniors and the disabled and supporting children and schools.

own health and become a personal trainer. Since then, Rorick has spent time developing a meditation class that incorporates his background and varied experience. Rorick’s list of credentials includes Certified Personal Trainer, Naturopathic Nutrition Diploma, Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist, Certified in Weight Management, Certified HIIT Instructor (High Intensity Interval Training), Certified Enzyme and Wellness Specialist, Certified Reiki Master, Certification in Neurolinguistic Programming, Certification in Quantum Touch Healing and Certified Life Coach. He has also studied energy healing, Bengston energy healing metho, spiritual healing and sound and vibrational healing. “I can help heal people with all kinds of different conditions, from fibromialgia to cancer,” he said. The list goes on to include ailments such as

a torn meniscus, a broken shoulder or even the PTSD associated with grief or a broken heart. “Sometimes (people) just need a little push in a slightly different direction,” Rorick said. Rorick, who is also almost done authoring a book, said that there is a difference between fitness and health, and that someone who is very fit can actually be very unhealthy, and vice versa. By focusing on the body, mind and soul, he believes it gives people “a new sense of harmony and stability in your life.” Rorick understands the hesitation when it comes to exploring a new class such as the one he offers, but is hopeful that Springville area residents will be open to the concept. “There’s a lot of misunderstanding when it comes to what meditation is,” he said. “You don’t sit in a corner singing ‘Kumbaya.’” He explained that his class is very guided, and

Anyone interested in learning more can attend a Lions Club meeting, held on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Papa Jake’s Saloon, 243 West Main St. in Springville.

New Meditation Class at Springville Health & Fitness

By Alicia Dziak

For many people, medicine is a way of life and a way of dealing with chronic pain and other health conditions. But what if there was a way to alleviate that pain without a daily dose of pills? Mike Rorick offers his assistance at a new meditation class, offered at Springville Health and Fitness. “I incorporate emotional release techniques,” Rorick explained, noting that the ancient Chinese culture often promotes working on the body’s energy centers (think acupuncture) and that “by releasing the things we hang onto emotionally, we can release physical symptoms.” Rorick, who works full time as an audio engineer, has been studying energy work since the 1990s. Originally from Orchard Park, he has been living in Springville for the past 13 years. He had a lifechanging car accident in 2005, which led him to take charge of his

West Valley Central School Pre-annexation Study on Schedule

By Rich Place

A presentation outlining the results of the preannexation study by Castallo & Silky LLC is expected to take place sometime in early spring, West Valley Superintendent Eric Lawton told the West Valley School Board of Education at its Monday meeting. A date is not yet formalized, but Lawton said Dr. William Silky informed him the findings are expected to be completed in a report by mid-March. From there, the information will likely be presented to the West Valley and Springville-Griffith Institute school boards. He said Silky offered to conduct one single joint presentation with West Valley and Springville or do two separate presentations, and board members informally agreed two separate presentations would be recommended at this point in the study. It was not mentioned during the school board meeting to include Ellicottville Central School, of which some information was gathered as part of the study.

“They expressed they weren’t really interested in doing an annexation at this time,” Lawton said following the school board meeting. “I didn’t want to put it out there and upset anybody if they’re not interested but, at the same time, we’d be willing to do a presentation for them.” Also at the meeting on Monday, school business official Ann O’Brien provided the board’s first look at budget planning for the 2018-19 school year. She guided them through the budgeted and projected revenues for this year as well as the general support section of the budget. She did not highlight any substantial surprises, with the general fund revenue up about $100,000 compared to what was budgeted in the current spending plan. So far, O’Brien has budgeted in the 2018-19 budget about $55,700 in additional aid compared to the current year but stressed it’s still early. She also informed the board that the 2018-19 budget will be the final spending plan the district will receive a PILOT (Payment In Lieu Of Taxes)

payment for the Ashford Office Complex. “That is going to go on the tax rolls,” she said, noting the assessed value of the property is $1.78 million. The PILOT payment is scheduled to be $47,495 next school year, O’Brien said. When asked by board president Stephen Kowalski, she said a ballpark figure for anticipated taxes is $65,000. However, because they are on different budget line items, that doesn’t mean the figures offset. “If you were to keep tax levy at zero next year you are not going to make up that $50,000,” she said, later adding, “again, those are conversations that we’ll have next year. It will not impact the 2018-19 budget.”

IN OTHER business at the meeting, Lawton asked the school board for permission to offer the school’s property as a location for the Western New York Dairy and Agricultural Festival after it was learned the event was scheduled to be canceled. “I thought maybe — we have a beautiful facility here — if it could work for them and maybe get some people

here to look at our beautiful facility, I thought it might be a win-win situation,” he told the board. Although the board gave the go-ahead to look into the idea, festival chairman Joan Taylor the following morning declined the offer because of the lack of time and coordination needed to move the festival there. The school board also learned from principal Dan Amodeo that 30 students are participating in this year’s musical, which is scheduled for March 23 and 24. He also said the school on March 1 will be hosting presentations on bullying to students in kindergarten through eighth grade. On that same day, students in grades 6-12 will attend a presentation from two Holocaust survivors. “It’s something our students can really get exposed to and get that experience firsthand of hearing from some Holocaust survivors,” he said. The next meeting of the West Valley School Board of Education is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, March 12 in the school library.

Green Springville Prepares for Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Green Springville kickedoff its first Green Speaker Series in January with a presentation from Colden resident and SGI grad Tracie Hall from the U.S. Green Building Council. Hall’s presentation about “Greening Your Home” presented simple items and tasks for home owners to reduce energy consumption, reduce waste and improve indoor air quality. The second presenter in the Green Speaker Series is Joe Gawron from Buffalo Geothermal. His presentation, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Feb. 20, will cover basic principles of geothermal technologies, how it compares to traditional heating and cooling, and available incentives for homeowners and businesses. “I was surprised to see how practical geothermal heating and cooling is,” said Reed Braman, Green Springville co-founder.

“I always imagined that it would be a large construction process and, while still substantial, it’s practical for many commercial and residential applications.” The Green Speaker Series will continue through April culminating in an Earth Day celebration in

downtown Springville. On March 20, SGI graduate Darren Cotton will speak about the University District Toolshare Program that he founded, while on April 17 PUSH Buffalo and UB Regional Institute will answer questions on solar panels and provide info on Solarize campaigns.

All presentations will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Springville Center for the Arts. A question and answer period will follow all speakers. For more information, contact Reed at GreenSpringville. or on Facebook at GreenSpringville.


Snocross Feb. 16-18

Snowmobile racers make their way around the track at a previous visit by the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series to Salamanca. This year’s event is scheduled to take place Feb. 16 to 18. By Kellen M. Quigley

For the first time since its inaugural event, the AMSOIL Championship Snocross snowmobile event at the Seneca Allegany Resort and Hotel will take place in the east parking lot. “It works great for spectators because there is a large hill to stand on in addition to all the bleachers,” said ISOC Racing spokesperson Gene Shaw. “Viewing is better and another thing that is better is the proximity to everything.” As many as 15,000 people are expected to visit Salamanca during the weekend of Feb. 16 to 18 for the championship series’ sixth annual visit. With that many potential vehicles and the east lot occupied by the races, space will be limited — but officials said there are other places attendees can park. “Parking, as always, is available in our parking garage, which fills up fast, and our gravel lot as you enter the casino where the event was last year,” said casino spokesperson Nadine DiStefano. DiStefano said additional parking will be available off property at the Seneca Nation Administration Building and Seneca Nation Health Center. Shuttles will also be available if parking off site. The stop in Salamanca is the farthest east for the national touring series and is the fifth of eight stops during the 2017-18 season. The first four events have been successes, according to Shaw, with good weather playing a big role. He said recent weather was cold enough this year to make the snow early at the casino, meaning they are ready to go. “We have had cold weather and a lot of snow, so people have been able to enjoy snowmobiling,” he said. “We hope that continues through the rest of the winter.” The casino’s preparations for this year began almost immediately after the previous season’s event, with room bookings starting about a year out. DiStefano said recent preparations have gone smoothly, including the snow making, which starts about a month before the event. “Weather for the most part has been very good this year,” DiStefano said. “One small warm up created an issue for the snow makers but other than that it was good.” By moving the event back to the east parking lot, Shaw said the proximity of everything will be a highlight for the spectators, putting them right in front of the action. “The event center is really close, and people can warm up throughout the day,” he said. “We are excited about the new location and think people are really going to enjoy it.” “We have many vendors in the Events Center, we also have large screen TVs that the guests can view Snocross even if they don’t want to venture outside,” DiStefano said. “We also show it on the television in our two guest bars.” DiStefano said last year’s event had an attendance of nearly 15,000 people, but as many as 18,000 were in attendance in previous years. She said the event brings many new and returning guests to the casino, with the hotel and restaurants becoming busy throughout the event. Shaw said ISOC is thankful to all the parties involved in the event, especially the casino. He said the casino has been a great partner in full support of it from the beginning and hopes to make the event better every year. “It’s going to be a great event with all the best snowmobile riders in the world being there. There is going to be nonstop action,” Shaw added. “I hope people come out to the event this year even if they have or haven’t come out in the past. It is going to be great and a lot of fun for the whole family.” For guests are looking to purchase tickets for this year’s event, they can go to The Logo Shop inside Seneca Allegany Casino or purchase online at snocross. com.

Winter SPORTS Time to Teleski Meal Prepping For Holiday Concerts a Healthier You By Carlee Frank

Welcome to week eight of a Healthier You! I have a question: when did you eat last, and what did you eat? If you are similar to four in 10 Americans, you skipped breakfast and snacked for lunch (ABC News, IDEA). Furthermore, a 2014 Nielson poll found that snacking purchases — such as Greek yogurt, nutritional bars and candy — grew by $48 billion in one year, whereas overall grocery spending increased by only $1.8 billion. This means people are either overeating as a result of increased snacking, or eating too little as a result of less balanced meals. Therefore, we must reevaluate our eating habits as a population. Many studies have found that the average workweek for Americans is 46.7 hours, and another 50 percent say they work more than that. It is no surprise, then, that we have less time for balanced meals — so, this is where meal prepping comes into play. Meal prepping is the weekly preparation of meals for a period of time greater than two days. Meal prepping allows you to eat more healthily, budget more efficiently, save time throughout the week and set up a weekly routine. You can meal prep five days a week, seven days a week, or simply meal prep your lunches – it’s incredibly versatile. Let’s take it step by step. First, choose balanced meals that feature protein, necessary vitamins and minerals and healthy carbs, such as legumes, meat, fruit, vegetables and dairy. For example: overnight oats with berries for breakfast, quinoa salad with black beans, mushrooms, spinach and salsa with sliced banana on the side for lunch and a lettuce wrap with chicken, tomatoes, cheese and hummus and sweet potato mash on the side for dinner. Next, go to the store and pick up all of the necessary ingredients. If you aren’t budgeting, simply select whatever you need. If you are budgeting, however, be creative — you can make tasty food for only $30 a week. YouTube is a wonderful resource for meal prep ideas and ideas for individuals with dietary restrictions. Lastly, choose one day a week, such as Sundays, to cook and store your meals. There are multiple containers in which you can store your meals: mason jars, Tupperware or Bento boxes. However, no matter the container, it’s important to store the food items properly. If you don’t think they will store well together, simply separate them within the container. For example, separate the lettuce and fillings of a lettuce wrap and construct it just before eating so it doesn’t get soggy by the end of the week. Additionally, if you choose to meal prep for a full week, save the least ripe fruits, vegetables and other ingredients for the end of the seven days. Now that you know the steps, let’s discuss the benefits. Meal prepping can save you upwards of $60 each week, as the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the average household spends $3,008 dining out each year. How many times have you run out of time to cook and stopped by a fast food joint instead, or stood in front of the fridge for 20 minutes only to come away with a doggy bag from the night before? Meal prepping alleviates all of these problems. You won’t have to spend time cooking or searching for food — instead you can use that time on projects, or with friends and families. As you set up a weekly routine, you will feel less stressed, and hopefully more productive. It will also help you to eat healthier food and curb your snack cravings. So, experiment with meal prepping this week, and you might discover a new-found passion.

55th Annual Springville Lions Club

You’ve probably heard the terms — telemark skiing, freeheeling, teleskiing — they all mean the same thing, but what exactly is that? In a nutshell, telemark skiing utilizes a different boot and binding than traditional downhill skiing, and the major difference is that the heel is free and able to lift off the ski. Telemark skiing is a versatile skiing style that allows the freedom to ski both at the resorts and in the backcountry, with the idea that free heels allow for easy climbing and open possibilities for efficient touring.

Celebrating the SGI Community

By Gwendolyn Fruehauf, SGI Student Reporter

Life can be difficult, no matter where you are in life. We all have something that gets us down. But we also all have a community that can cheer us up. A community is, according to Merriam-Webster, a unified body of individuals. And, like so many other aspects of our lives, this definition can be interpreted however and whenever we want. So, what is community? To get multiple perspectives on this discussion, I asked a few students at Springville High School to explain what community means to them. “Community is a group of closely knit people who work The library will be closed your chance to meet three Potter fan could want!

They come together a lot and really care about each other,” Stressinger explained. Students go to the same school five days a week. They are immersed in the same environment on a day-to-day basis.

Wedding Trends 2018

Another big décor trend for 2018 is a move away from traditional pastels to brighter color schemes. Brides magazine cites peach, apricot, vibrant green and coral as popular colors that pair well with other neutrals, including metallics. “Rose gold continues to be popular,” said Mueller, “and it really looks nice paired with other colors throughout the seasons. Purple and mauve mixed with a rose gold or a rust metallic has been popular for fall weddings.” Bright colors are echoed in other décor choices; according to The Knot, the biggest online wedding planning service, balloons are making a comeback and are a great, easy way to incorporate lots of color at the reception! Instead of emphasizing tradition, 2018’s weddings are more about reflecting the individual personalities of the couple. Selecting a venue that has special meaning to the couple is very popular, as those who live in the “Enchanted Mountains of Cattaraugus County” often choose Ellicottville because of its beautiful landscapes in the heart of ski country. What better place to capture a love of the outdoors, and especially skiing, than to plan a wedding near the

slopes and capture a special moment on the ski lift? The couple’s personality is also reflected in the food and beverage choices at the reception! According to Bridal Guide magazine, the signature cocktail is always a classic choice to serve at the reception. However, Mueller has noticed couples looking for something else to be served in a martini glass. “A mix of stations creates a more social reception, and the mashed potato bar has been a popular choice! Guests fill a martini glass with one of two kinds of mashed potatoes, a sweet mashed or a rustic style, and select their choice of toppings including different gravies, cheese, and bacon, of course!” Mueller noted that couples who enjoy sushi often include it among their reception offerings, and last year, she noted that more sushi was served at receptions than ever. Whether you’re in love with just a few or all of the latest wedding trends, your big day can be the perfect expression of your unique style and taste! With all of the great services and experience that Ellicottville has to offer, your wedding day is bound to be everything you pictured and so much more.

If the holidays brought you a marriage proposal, the clock is ticking to get your wedding plans underway! From securing a venue to dress shopping to choosing among themes and colors, there’s no shortage of details to figure out before the big day. Even if you aren’t getting married this year, it’s great to keep an eye on the trends, especially with a royal wedding right around the corner this spring! Read on to learn more about this year’s wedding trends and how you can incorporate what you like (and avoid what you don’t!) in your wedding plans. According to Katelyn Mueller, catering sales director and certified wedding and event planner at Holiday Valley Ski Resort, 2018 is just about booked for the year, with only four openings. It’s certainly not too soon to plan for 2019, especially for the busiest months. “Just like 2017, September and October are really popular months to get married, as the foliage is beautiful that time of year,” said Mueller. “Incorporating greenery in the décor is very popular, as it works for weddings planned throughout the year, including the fall!” Brides magazine concurs, citing greenery as a great alternative to decorating with tulle and lace. “Couples seem to prefer a more natural look, especially with flowers. We’re seeing a lot more wild flowers being incorporated into the décor—flowers that you would actually see in your backyard,” explained Mueller, who is looking forward to her sixth wedding season at Holiday Valley this year.

Fuller Qualifies for States

SGI ATHLETES OF THE WEEK 243 W. Main Street, Springville, NY

Ivette Lewandowski Varsity Basketball

Ivette is averaging 17 points over her last two games to go along with five assists per game over that stretch. She led her team in scoring last week versus Cheektowaga in avenging an earlier 15-point loss to them a few weeks ago. Nominated by Coach Gainey

Wyatt Fuller Varsity Swimming & Diving

By Coaches Ryan Dygert and Duane Boberg

On Friday, Feb. 9, Springville Boys Swimming and Diving competed in the Class B Championships at Maryvale High School. Qualifying for the meet was Jon Boberg, Elliot Emley, Wyatt Fuller, Dominic Hartenstein, Zach Hughey, Jackson Richert, Blaze Schleble, Dakota Schelble and Eric Schweickert. Unfortunately, Zach was unable to take part as he was sick for the competition. Starting off the competition was the diving portion of the competition featuring Fuller, D. Schelble and Reichert. Reichert was able to show off his determination and grit through competing through the entire meet, even after making contact with the board during the second warm ups. This is an extremely mental obstacle to overcome in the middle of competition and no small feat. D. Schelble was able to secure a third place finish earning his first topfour finish in a postseason 11-dive competition. Fuller took first place in the competition while also earning a State

Championship Qualifying score, where he will compete in Long Island on March 2. Following the diving portion, the swimmers then took to the pool. In the 200 Medley Relay, Schweikert, B. Schelble, Boberg and Emley were able to place 10th. In the 200 IM, Boberg scored points for the Griffins with an 11th place finish. The 50 Freestyle saw both Hartenstein and Emley just miss out on scoring positions, taking 17th and 18th, respectively. The 200 Freestyle Relay saw B. Schelble, Hartensteinm Emley and Boberg take sixth place. Lastly, the 400 Freestyle Relay was able to take 10th place with a season best time by 11 seconds thanks to the swims of Hartenstein, B. Schelble, Schweikert and Emley. The next competition for the team will be Sectionals at UB Alumni Arena with Prelims on Thursday for the swimmers, and swimming and diving finals taking place Friday.

On Feb. 9 at Class B Championships, Wyatt Fuller participated in the Diving Competition and took first place in the event. However taking first wasn’t the most impressive feat— it was that he scored 462.2 points, qualifying him for the NYS competition in only his second year of the sport. Nominated by Coaches Boberg and Dygert

SGI Coaches Corner

Girls’ Varsity Basketball, Coach Gainey

The varsity girls basketball team pulled off an incredible win on Wednesday night, Feb. 7, as they defeated Cheektowaga. 43-39. The girls were down for the majority of the game but wouldn’t quit as they battled throughout the evening. Ivette Lewandowski was incredible offensively as she scored nine of her game high 19 points in the fourth quarter. The defensive effort was outstanding as Kelsey Zabawa, Sydney Rosati and Ryan Stedman were incredible with containing the Lady Warriors. Bella Oakley was a force inside and had a big finish in the fourth quarter to catapult the Griffs towards a lead. The best part about the win was seeing the entire team rally around one another and avenge an earlier season loss, which saw the girls lose by 15 points. Other scorers on the night included: Kelsey Zabawa with six points, Sydney Rosati with five points, Leah Frank and Grace Zabawa had four points, Ryan Stedman and Bella Oakley each added two points and Jess Engel chipped in one point to help the Griffs to the big win. Great job ladies! The girls returned to action on Monday night when they traveled to Iroquois but dropped that final league game of the year by a score of 62-32. Despite the loss, the score was much closer than the final represented. The girls played incredible team defense through the first 16 minutes with holding Iroquois to 26 points. Sydney Rosati, Kelsey Zabawa and Ryan Stedman were excellent defensively. Ivette Lewandowski led all scorers with 23 points. Ivette did a great job running the point guard position and making tough shots throughout the night. The girls wrapped up their regular season schedule Wednesday when they played host to North Collins at the high school. The game, which took place after press time, was the final time the SGI seniors played on their home floor. Thank you to those who came out and supported these terrific girls along with the rest of the team! Indoor Track, Coach Joseph Marvin

Planning for this year’s Dairy Festival — originally scheduled for June 1 to 3 — was already well underway and had included a nearly completed preliminary schedule. Taylor said the schedule is often completed in February so event promotion can begin. The village board in November approved the process for the Dairy Festival to move forward with planning the festival behind the stores on Main Street, which was also listed as the location on the festival’s website. “We thought they were going to have it back there,” said Springville Mayor Bill Krebs on Tuesday. He said the event’s site plan presented to the village board included allowing a lane open for emergency vehicles and also leaving space for tenants’ parking. But following announcement of the event’s cancellation this week, Taylor said there wouldn’t be enough room to accommodate all rides, entertainment, vendors and parking. Krebs noted that the village board had OK’ed closing South Buffalo Street and using part of the Springville Youth Incorporated (SYI) property for the festival as well. The mayor said he showed committee members other potential locations, including the other side of Main Street, in Heritage Park, in Fireman’s Park or suggesting the parking lot of the Springville Village Shopping Center on South Cascade Drive. “The village would have liked to see it in our village center but they had their own requirements, the space they needed and they ultimately decided they couldn’t have it,” said Krebs. Other locations looked at by the committee included the Concord Senior Center off Waverly Street — which was not permitted because it would set a precedent of allowing other nonsenior groups and festivals to use the facility, Taylor said — and the Gentner’s Commission Market auction site.
