We Could we have asked for better weather on Saturday for the Springville Center for the Arts’ annual Art Crawl? We spent some of our afternoon strolling the streets, stopping into businesses and were pleased with the turnout. Many of the business owners we talked to welcomed the opportunity to showcase their stores and had people coming and going all day. Kudos to the Art Crawl organizers who pulled off a successful event that appeared to benefit all those on Main Street. As the sunshine has continued this week, we’ve loved seeing the daffodils blooming and the trees budding! May is off to a great start! This week, we continue to recognize kids who help make Springville and the surrounding communities a better place to live, work and play. Whether it’s the 7th grade Kids Can Make a Difference projects (see page 2) or the SGI track team assisting at this weekend’s Happy Half run in Ellicottville (see page 4), our youth continue to do amazing things!

Cheers to the Beer and Wine Festival May 12
Celebrate Mom BY ALICIA DZIAK Mom. Whether you’re a little tyke needing her to mend a boo boo, a teenager needing tough love, a young adult needing guidance, or a woman needing a friend (or help with your own kids!) there’s no one in the world like your mom. If you’re lucky enough to still have yours around, Sunday, May 13 is the day to celebrate her and everything it means to be a mother. If you’re looking for a great way to be together, how about brunch? Not having to cook is a gift in and of itself. See Mother’s Day page 12

Residents to Vote on $38.82M School Budget BY RICH PLACE Residents of the SGI School District on Tuesday will have their opportunity to cast a ballot for a proposed $38.82 million budget for the 2018-19 school year that includes a 3.91 percent increase of the local tax levy. The budget proposal will be one of three propositions on the ballot, as voters can also vote for the purchase of school buses and also a $14.73 million capital project that will move the district offices to make room for a new P-TECH program. Along with presentations from school administration May 1 on the P-TECH program, school business administrator Maureen Lee presented the proposed 2018-19 budget during a public hearing and outlined key changes compared to the current spending plan. The public presentation came following months of budget preparation by the business office, school administrators and the

school board, including a line-by-line overview of the budget with the board on March 6. The board unanimously approved the tentative spending plan on March 20 to pave the way for the vote by residents on Tuesday. Perhaps most notable in the proposed budget is the $1.98 million jump in spending — a 5.4 percent increase compared to $36.84 million this year — due mostly to a $1.11 million increase in the special education aspect of the plan. “It’s a pretty big number,” Lee said during the public hearing. “We had additional students who came into the district after the budget was approved last year, and we have additional costs ongoing this year so we are budgeting appropriately for that.” The jump raised the program component of the budget — which is the largest aspect of the three-part plan — by $1.96 million to a total of $29.49 million. The administrative component of the budget decreased $144,309 and the capital component increased only $166,730. Also contributing to the higher budget was $538,422 in employee benefits and $773,568 in contractual increases. To help offset the increased costs, Lee said there was a transfer See School Budget Vote page 5
Battles and Wars BY JOLENE HAWKINS Looking back to the men and women that we will be remembering on Memorial Day, have you ever wondered about all the battles and wars? The Revolutionary battle years were from 1775 to 1783. It was also known as the American Revolution War, between the 13 North American colonies and British Empire. George Washington became the commander of the Continental Army. The battle went on for a total of seven years, with the major victory being at Yorktown VA, giving the colonies their independence from Great Britain. Now we could form our own government and make our own laws. June 18, 1812 found us in conflict again, as the United States and Great Britain fought over the British violations of the U S maritime rights. A note for you: during this time is when Francis Scott Key wrote the words to Star Spangled Banner. He was not being metaphoric with the words as the rockets looked a bit like a giant bottle rockets with a long stick that spins in the air, attached to a cylindrical canister filled with gunpowder, tar and shrapnel. The bombs bursting in air? They were 200 pound cannon balls, designed to explode above their targets. The war ended with the exchange of ratifications of the Treaty of Ghent, in 1815. The last Veteran of the War of 1812, Hiram Silas Cronk, died in 1905, at 105 years old! The Mexican War started 31 years later in 1846, when a Mexican cavalry unit attacked a group of U.S. soldiers in the disputed zone under See A Look Back page 10

The older I get, the more I appreciate my mom. She’s one of those people who puts everyone else ahead of herself, and would drop everything (and often does!) to help someone in need. My mom is kind, thoughtful, creative, the best cook I know and beautiful inside and out. I’m so lucky to live only 10 minutes from her and to be able to see her as often as I do. As we celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend, I will also officially now be the mother of two teenagers. Yes, my baby turns 13 on Saturday. Being a twin myself, I have really come to appreciate my mom parenting two teenage girls at the same time—I know we did not make it easy— not to mention my brother who was only two years behind! There’s nothing more challenging or rewarding than being a mom, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, grandmas, and second moms out there! You are loved, you are appreciated and thank you for all you do! And happy birthday to my sunshine, Lily May! - Alicia Dziak, Managing Editor, Springville Times

Helping Others with Liver Disease

If you agree that you’re never fully dressed without a smile, turn-your-frownupside-down moments are guaranteed at the Seventh grader Riley Ballantyne chose to work Springville Center for the with the American Liver Foundation because she was Arts’ upcoming production diagnosed with liver disease nonalcoholic steatohepatitis of Annie! Making its way to (NASH) in October of last year. “I have been doing Springville May 17-27, the research on my disease and I know that I am not alone story follows the familiar and there are many people, including kids, that are just story of little orphan like me,” Riley said. Annie, who is chosen to For the service portion of her project, she contacted stay at billionaire Oliver the American Liver Foundation and they will be Warbuck’s mansion for sending a thank you when they receive the donations. the holidays. She is taken “I organized a Middle School Hat Day and a SGI staff from her orphanage, and dress down day to raise money,” Riley explained. “I had the clutches of evil Miss to send a letter of approval to the superintendent and it Hannigan. When Annie wins was then approved by the School Board.” the hearts of Warbucks and Riley said her favorite part of the project was the his staff, they set out on an support she received from students, teachers, and staff. epic mission to find Annie’s “I raised $1,000 for the foundation,” she said. “I am parents. Meanwhile, Miss so proud to be part of a school that truly supports one Hannigan, in partnership another!” with her brother Rooster and She added, “I am going to be fighting this disease for his girlfriend Lily, attempt the rest of my life. I want to thank my family, friends, to make some money out of and teachers for helping me be successful!” this unique situation. The production by the Springville Players is directed by Don Wesley, who was an English/theatre teacher and administrator at Gowanda High School where he directed some 90 plays and musicals before taking an administrative position at Orchard Park High School for 16 years. He is an avid student of acting and directing technique and over the past few years has served as an acting coach for musicals at Lake Shore and Hamburg High Schools and for HHS summer theatre camp. Don lives in Gowanda and is a member of SDC, the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society, a national organization of stage directors. For Annie, Wesley assembled a diverse cast. “Our cast members are from several western New York communities including Springvillle, East Aurora, Holland, Williamsville, East Concord, Hamburg, Buffalo, West Seneca, South Wales and Sanborn,” he said. Local cast members include
Maggie Boyle and Brooke Ryzycki (both orphan girls), Donna Benstead (ensemble), Jennifer Weber (ensemble), Charles Weber (ensemble), Jonathan Horton (Rooster Hannigan), Sue Fishbeck (ensemble), Pam Morley (ensemble), and Cory Golabek (ensemble). “We have been in rehearsal since early March, meeting four nights a week from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.” Wesley explained. “We worked on the show in layers little by little learning music, choreography, blocking and finally character work always bending each element to the story line and focusing on the individual exploration of each role by the cast members who must ultimately take over and bring the show and its story to life.” Among the challenges of directing this particular production, Wesley noted the size and lack of wing space at the Mongerson Theatre and limited outfront lighting availability was an obstacle, especially for a major production like Annie. “It’s a musical, so it has music and dance challenges as well as acting and getting the story across,” he said. “There are a lot of roles in the show, over 50. We could never have space for that many performers at the Mongerson, so we use an ensemble, which complements the cast of leading and supporting actors and calls on the 10-person ensemble company to play as many as five roles each.” One such actor portraying multiple roles is Springville Times’ writer Jennifer Weber, along with her husband, Charles. Jennifer is part of the ensemble and also plays Missus Greer and Connie Boylan. “I’m in love with musical theater and always want to get on stage whenever

I see a performance,” she said. “I did a few musicals in high school but nothing else until now. N ot really sure why now— right place, right time, right amount of gumption to try out?” Annie has been a learning experience for Jennifer. “The biggest challenge by far is how much time it takes to practice and get the show ready,” she explained. “I’m amazed at how much work is done by so many volunteers who do the work because they love it. It’s truly impressive.” She added that, “It’s probably the most fun I’ve had doing something for myself. I love being a part of this cast. Not only do I get to sing and act (and pretend to know how to dance) but I get to do it with my husband, one of my best friends from college who tried out, and a dear friend who has been doing musicals in WNY for years and years. The cast instantly bonded and I am already thinking about missing seeing them every day after the production ends!” Jennifer’s husband, Charles (Chuck) Weber, plays Bundles the laundryman, a servant in many Warbucks mansion scenes, Bert Healy in the radio show scene and Louis Howe, President Roosevelt’s secretary. “I auditioned on a whim along with Jen, and I was hoping at best for ensemble,” Chuck said of landing his multiple roles. “I haven’t been in anything since high school.” Chuck said working on the songs was the biggest challenge for him, as he doesn’t consider himself to be the world’s greatest singer. He must have worked hard, though, because he ended up with a solo number in the play, which he said has been his favorite part. “The radio show is a blast to perform!” he said.
Another local cast member many audience members are sure to recognize is Donna Benstead, music teacher at SES. While Donna has directed numerous school plays over the years, this is her first time acting in one. “I’ve always wanted to be in a musical, and since both of my sons are out and on their own, I thought it would be a good time to try it. ‘Annie’ is one of my favorites!” Donna said. She said she liked not being in charge of the entire musical. “I’ve truly enjoyed letting someone else take care of the many details involved in putting on a musical,” she noted. “It’s been so fun for me to see what my students experience when participating in one of my musicals.” Donna said her favorite part of being in Annie has been the new friends she’s made. “We are like a family now, and we miss each other over the weekends,” she noted. “I also have enjoyed singing all of the songs; I love to sing!” “We are excited to be opening on the 17th and ready to have our audiences join us,” Wesley said. “They can look forward to a classic story of the 1930’s based on the highly popular comic strip about ‘Little Orphan Annie’ with great music and inventive staging. The Broadway production ran for over 2,300 performances, and we are certain our production will be enjoyed by everyone, young and old alike.” Performances May 17, 18, 19, 25, 26 at 7:30 p.m. and May 20 and 27 at 2 p.m. Due to high demand for tickets, an additional show was added Thursday, May 24.

LOCAL News Village Board Addresses 37 S. Central Ave.
Board Signs Two-Year Agreement with Fire Company The Springville Village Board took action toward remedying a distressed property that has been the subject of much conversation at recent meetings. The board unanimously approved for Michael Kaleta, building inspector and code enforcement officer, to issue a notice of remedy to the property owner at 37 S. Central Ave., a large green structure near the corner of Woodward Avenue. The board also set a public hearing for June 18 on the property’s condition. “If there has been no action prior to the hearing and it remains unsafe and uninhabitable, then there is a course of action the board will take at the hearing,” said village attorney Paul Weiss to the board. The action by the board on Monday came after Kaleta summarized his report on the building’s condition after he, along with an engineer from Encorus Group, surveyed the structure. They entered the building after receiving an administrative inspection warrant, he said. Both the reports by Kaleta and the engineer, which were accepted by the board, suggested the building is structurally unsafe and should be demolished. “It’s my professional opinion that this house and garage are unsafe, unhealthy and a nuisance,” it was stated in Kaleta’s report as read by Mayor
William Krebs at the meeting. “I do not believe that this house is salvagable and for public safety issues these buildings should be demolished and removed at once and I have posted the property as such, that they are unsafe to enter.” Kaleta also summarized his report to the board, stating the first floor had “terrible conditions” and there is a “gaping hole” in the second story rear apartment. He said in one spot, water is running straight off the roof and into the building. There was car parts and car manuals scattered in the structure, he said. The notice of remedy, which essentially instructs the property owner to make the property safe again, comes after the board resolved that the code enforcement officer has established the reasonable likelihood of an unsafe or dangerous condition. Also at the meeting, the village board unanimously approved a two-year lease agreement with the Springville Volunteer Fire Company Inc. for the rental of space at 405 W. Main St. for the village’s fire apparatus. The approval came less than a month before the current 10-year lease agreement was set to expire on May 31. The two-year agreement, effective June 1, includes a payment of $1,000 per month from the village to the Springville Volunteer Fire Company Inc., Krebs said, and also notes the two entities will meet quarterly
to discuss the storage and future arrangements. The two sides had previously met but could not come to an agreement. At a previous meeting, the village had rejected a proposal of the revised recent 2008 agreement and countered with a proposal of its own. The fire company declined that counter proposal as well as a subsequent one. This agreement is the third between the village and fire company for the use of fire hall space. The first agreement was for 20 years beginning in 1988, and the second, 10-year lease, began in 2008. Matt Dygert, president of the Springville Volunteer Fire Company, could not be reached by press time on Wednesday. IN OTHER BUSINESS, the village board: • approved a BAN resolution for $1.57 million for the village’s upcoming sanitary sewer project; • approved two contracts with Watts Engineering pertaining to the Springville Bike Walk Enhancement Project. One was $35,496 for the final design contract and the second was for $78,237 for construction inspection; and approved the new Village Seal, designed by SGI senior MacKenzie Engel. The next meeting of the Springville Village Board is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, May 21 on the second floor of the public safety building on Franklin Street.
Colden Native and SGI Grad Announces Campaign for 147th District BY RICH PLACE
Surrounded by supporters on the front steps of the East Aurora Village Hall, Luke Wochensky, a Colden native and SGI graduate, announced his candidacy Tuesday for the 147th district of the New York State Assembly. Now an East Aurora resident, Wochensky said he took 18 hours on Monday visiting all 30 towns in the district and talked to a handful of residents including farmers, students, small business owners and local government leaders. During a speech announcing his candidacy, Wochensky repeated a mantra that is evident in his political logo, on his website and throughout his young campaign: he cares about small rural communities and is ready to take on the challenges they face. “We need a positive and independent voice for our small towns who can get things done,” he said. He admitted he “really, really, really” likes rural Western New York, a place he said he is “fortunate” to be able to call home. He graduated from SGI in 1998 and graduated from Union College and Ohio State University before going on to earn a law degree from Herzen State Pedagogical University of Russia in St. Petersburg. “I’m fortunate to still have my family here, still have friends I knew when I was as young as my son, Motvey,” he said. “But I’m a little bit disconcerting because a lot of those friends are not able to live

here in the district where they want to live. “We need to work together to ensure the young people can stay here and make a good living,” he continued. “We need to work together to ensure that our communities receive the resources they need and deserve. We need to work together to ensure our Main streets are receiving the loving care they need to thrive. And we need to work together to protect and preserve our precious agricultural lands and natural resources.” With his college degree, Wochensky pursued a legal career as an attorney and partner with an international firm representing American and European companies abroad before returning home to the Aurora/Colden area. During his tour of the district on Monday, Wochensky said he discovered a common theme amongst many of those he met with. “All of them have the same concerns: they are passionate about their small towns, passionate about their communities,” he said. “They have passionate
residents but they are fighting against the odds. We need to find innovative ways to restore our historic village centers and work to find ways to put life back into some of our greatest local institutions.” Wochensky is seeking to unseat Assemblyman David DiPietro, who was elected in 2012. The 147th district includes the southern portion of Erie County and all of Wyoming County. “What I heard from people throughout the district yesterday strengthened my resolve to win this election and become your next New York state assemblymember,” Wochesnky said. “Over the next several months I will prove to all of you that I am willing and able to put in the hard work that it requires to properly do this job. We will push the issues that actually really affect our daily lives.” Wochensky lives in the village of East Aurora with his wife, Katya, and son, Motvey. His campaign has launched social media pages at facebook.com/lukeforny, on Twitter @lukeforny and a website, lukeforny.com.

BY ALICIA DZIAK On May 12, the Happy Half and 5K return to Ellicottville for the third time. The race, organized by Doug and Gwen Bush of Endurance Factor LLC, begins and ends at Holiday Valley, and the course takes runners over the rolling hills in Cattaraugus County. Like any race, a lot goes on behind the scenes before the race and race-day, and the Bushes choose to work with local groups, which then, in turn, receive a donation. One group they have worked with over the years is the SGI girls’ track team. “We started working with (race organizers) about five or six years ago with the EVL Half in the fall,” said SGI track coach Mark Heichberger, who said SES teacher and Ellicottville resident Mila Clauss connected them. Heichberger added that when the Bushes started the Happy Half a couple years later and asked the girls to help, it was an easy yes. “The kids seem to have a great time and Doug and Gwen are great to work with,” he said. Among the girls’ responsibilities, they are in charge of putting the runners bags together on Thursday evening and handing out packets during the pre-registration on Friday, “On Saturday, we hand out race packets, direct runner where to go, handle a bag check, hand out water and food at the end, and distribute awards,” Heichberger added. For their work, the track team receives a donation, which they use to help defray the cost of their annual overnight trip. “This year we attended the Penn Relays in Philadelphia,” Heichberger said. “I love SGI. They are wonderful and we love working with them,” said Gwen Bush of Endurance Factor.. “It’s just a great group of kids. They are fantastic and I couldn’t appreciate them more!” Endurance Factor also works with the Ellicottville Sports Boosters in the same way, and Gwen said she really likes working with kids and “future runners.” Heichberger agrees that it’s a worthwhile experience for his team. “It’s a good experience for the kids to see an actual half marathon and to see what goes into putting it on,” he said. At press time, there are still slots open in the race, but Gwen said they are going fast! Race day registration will also be available is space allows. For the latest info, visit happyhalfrun.com or their Facebook page. Gwen also encourages spectators, and enthusiastically said how fun the race is to watch. “The runners love encouragement,” she said. The after-party, catered by Holiday Valley’s Centerplate, will also have food available for purchase to non-runners. In addition, guests are asked to bring non-perishable food donations for the Ellicottville Food Pantry. After the race, Endurance Factor makes a food donation, as well as a monetary one, to the food pantry. “We always like to give back,” Gwen said. Photos by Jaime Dickinson

from the retirement reserve of $284,650 and from the reserve for bonded debt for $636,123. A total of $675,000 will come from health insurance contributions. The tax levy was also increased by $621,644 to a total of $16.52 million. The increased tax levy stays within the tax cap, Lee noted. She added that throughout the budget, some costs were reduced in an effort to help balance the budget. “We had $240,133 in other decreases, so to try and offset that high special education cost, we found
other places without ... cutting any programs, without cutting any staff,” she said. The second proposition on the ballot will be for the purchase of seven 66-passenger buses and three 16-passenger buses as part of the accelerated bus replacement schedule. Lee said this is the third year of the initiative to reduce the turnover of buses to approximately every five years. These two propositions will be in addition to the P-TECH project vote as well as the school board election, which is uncontested. The seats of
Daniel J. Miess and Tyler Sullivan are both up for re-election this year, and the two incumbents are running unopposed. The school budget vote and board member election will be held from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday, May 15 in three locations throughout the district: the high school main foyer at 290 N. Buffalo St. (Polling District 3); the Colden Elementary School, 8263 Boston Colden Road in Colden (Polling District 2) and the Collins Center Fire Hall on Main Street in Collins Center (Polling District 1).
P-TECH Project Will Be Third Proposition on Ballot BY RICH PLACE Along with the traditional opportunities to vote for the upcoming school budget, bus purchases and board members, residents in the SGI School District will have the chance Tuesday to vote on a $14.73 million capital project to bring a P-TECH program to Springville. The proposal will be the third proposition on the ballots during the annual school budget vote. The project, if approved by voters, will move the district offices to the middle school and, by September 2020, will transform the current district office building into an educational center in partnership with Alfred State College and Erie 2 BOCES. The program will be utilized by all 27 districts in the local BOCES system, including SGI, and graduates of the program will receive not only a Regents diploma but also an associate’s degree. “The typical P-TECH student is the student who likely would otherwise probably not go to college,” explained SGI Superintendent Kimberly Moritz during a public hearing on the project on May 1. “It’s a student we want to help get to that diploma and then get into the industry and get into working, and Alfred State is very interested because it helps prepare tradesmen, which is something that we all know we desperately need in this day and age.” Moritz and the school board have learned a lot about P-TECH, which stands for Pathways in Technology Early College High School, since being introduced to it late last year. She said program officials had originally been eying the Colden Elementary School as a
potential location, but attention shifted to the district office building on Newman Street, in part, to allow the building to be eligible for state aid as a student space. The P-TECH program is scheduled to begin this September by utilizing two classrooms with 21 students — including five from the SGI district — in the SGI High School. It will grow during its early years, including utilizing four or five classrooms the following year, Moritz said. “I have to say the excitement from the families we met with was unbelievable,” she noted. “This is a great opportunity for kids and families. But you see we can’t sustain this program in this building after those first two years. That’s why this project has been moved along quickly, because we want to make sure it’s ready to open in September 2020.” A bit untraditional during a hearing on a capital project, Moritz spent the majority of the time during the May 1 meeting on the program itself rather than the financial implication. That’s due partially to the uniqueness of the partnership between Alfred State, Erie 2 BOCES and the school and also, as Moritz said, because the project has no direct financial impact on Springville residents. “We will always own the building and the space, as it’s renovated,” Moritz said. “There is no local share to the taxpayer because we have a lease agreement … that the Erie 2 BOCES will pay the local share as a lease payment to us.” The school board approved that lease agreement later in the May 1 meeting in anticipation of the upcoming vote. It also included that Erie 2 BOCES will be responsible for
utilities. When asked what could happen if the program is not as populated as expected, Moritz noted that although the program is new for this area, there are dozens of them already experiencing success around the state. However, if it did not meet expectations, the financial burden will not fall on the district. “It’s not our financial risk,” she said. “It is the financial risk of Alfred State and BOCES because of our lease agreement.” The program will be fully staffed with its own principal, counselor and nurse in addition to both the general education and trade program teachers, Moritz said, noting that staff will be paid for by Erie 2 BOCES. Questions during the public hearing included one about green space after one of the architectural drawings appeared to have the district office building close to Newman Street but, in reality, will retain about 30 feet of green space as it is currently situated. Another question was about parking, and Moritz said the middle school lot — where “there are countless empty spots” on a given day, she said — will be utilized. Plus, bus drop-offs for the program will be staggered from the Springville district’s drop-offs. The Springville P-TECH campus will allow students to study either electrical construction and maintenance electrician or computer information systems. “The students who (middle school principal) Ms. (Shanda) DuClon has talked to at the middle school are very excited, they see it almost as like this new lease on educational life for them,” Moritz said. “It’s not the same pathway that everyone else is following.”

She comes to us from Grassroots Gardens WNY, where she served as executive director since 2014, overseeing a network of more than 100 community and school gardens in Buffalo and Niagara Falls that transformed vacant urban land into active spaces for food production and urban wildlife habitat. Before her work with Grassroots Gardens, she served as WNY Regional Director for United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. She is a graduate of the University at Buffalo with a Master’s degree in Urban Planning, where she specialized in community development. Melissa lives in North Buffalo with her son and birding partner, Nick, and tries to spend most of her free time outdoors, hiking or in her garden. “I am extremely proud to join Buffalo Audubon’s team of dedicated educators and volunteers in their efforts to connect people of all ages and backgrounds to nature through birds. It is a true honor to take part in the work of such a prestigious organization, and to follow in the footsteps of Loren Smith, who I have long admired for his work in bringing Buffalo Audubon Society into a new era as a regional leader in conservation. I look forward to collaborating with peers and stakeholders to preserve vital habitat throughout the region, and create awareness of Beaver Meadow Audubon Center as a destination for visitors and residents. As a birder, nature enthusiast and non-profit leader, I have truly landed my dream job! “ Melissa began work as Executive Director on Thursday, April 26th. The Buffalo Audubon Society is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization that promotes appreciation and enjoyment of the natural world through education and stewardship.

that club members were always asking her to work for them after hours. Dave, who was still welding at the time, would often join her in the evenings and soon AGB became a joint effort between the two of them. AGB specializes in natural hardscapes that combine the talents of both Claire and Dave. “I learned a lot on movies about what works with your eye. It’s like art,” Claire said of her designing role in the company.
Dave brings his love of building things and knowledge of welding. “I’ve spent all my life in the woods and everything I do has that feel to it,” he said of the numerous custom pieces he constructs for customers that complement the landscaping design. Dave’s unique pieces include trellises, swings, bird baths and really anything the customer can dream up. Dave’s love of creating ironwork art also inspired him to start his own business, Black Feather Iron. “I create functional art, whether it’s railings or wine racks,” Dave said of his craft. “At AGB, we connect people with the natural landscape and all of its elements, plants, soil, water, stone,” said Claire. “During the design process, we take into account how people live, work and relax. We work with the homeowner to creatively and responsibly meet the needs of each as an individual. We take time to listen and understand their ideas and concerns, applying professional skills to develop a plan, and implementing that plan with expertise.” For more info, visit their Facebook pages (A Growing Business Landscaping and Black Feather Iron) or call (716) 592-1491.

BY ALICIA DZIAK For regulars at Allegany State Park, it seems like an eternity since the bridge leading from the Red House main entrance to the Administration Building was closed in order to rehabilitate the dam. The project has closed down the road since last summer, and also included lowering Red House Lake in August so that it has not been accessible to swimmers and kayakers since that time. However, the wait is nearly over, as the dam project is on schedule for a July 6 completion date. Work on the lake stone embankment and backside earth embankment resumed in May. Spillway apron removal and reconstruction also began in May. Roadway installation work, including the lakeside trail and guiderail, will be completed in June. According to park manager Tom Livak, “The lake level will be returned to normal pool elevation by mid-June, but the contractor will do everything possible

to make it sooner if the weather cooperates and all remaining bridge/ spillway/apron items can be completed.” The lake and lake basin remains closed to the public at this time as concrete work continues on the new bridge and spillway area. Lake levels are expected to return to normal pool elevation sometime in June,
but no date has been set since weather may affect timing. Due to the unusual weather events of the past few months, Red House Beach will not be open on Memorial Day Weekend. As an alternative for patrons, plans are underway to open Quaker Lake Beach for swimming on Memorial
Day Weekend and the weekends following until the beach opens daily for the start of peak season on June 23. Red House Beach is expected to be open for the beginning of peak season, if not sooner. Stay tuned to the park’s Facebook page for info.

BY MARY HEYL Mom always says the best gifts are from the heart! Make her proud by exploring your DIY side this Mother’s Day to make some extra special gifts that she will cherish. You, too, will enjoy the memories of making these gifts, as well as making her day! The best part? You can find most of the supplies you’ll need right here in Ellicottville! Nothing says “relax and enjoy” like breakfast in bed! Treat Mom to a tasty homemade breakfast that’s impressive but surprisingly easy to make: Quiche Lorraine. This classic cheesy egg dish will make her day, and it’s much easier to eat quiche in bed than syrup-covered fare! Stop by EVL Cheese Company at 5 E. Washington Street and get 8 ounces of Swiss cheese or 4 ounces of Swiss and 4 ounces of her favorite cheese, like cheddar or gruyere. Grate the cheese and blend it together before refrigerating. To get started, preheat the oven to 425 degrees and fit a refrigerated pie crust into a 9-inch pie plate. Fold the edges under and crimp. Prick the bottom and sides of the crust with a fork and bake for 6 to 8 minutes until lightly browned. Cool
the pie crust on a wire rack and reduce the heat to 350 degrees. Next, cook 1 pound of bacon, cut into ½ inch pieces, in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring often, for 7 to 8 minutes or until crispy. Drain the bacon on paper towels. Sprinkle it over the bottom of the pie crust. Next, sprinkle ¼ cup of chopped green onions over the bacon and then sprinkle ½ cup of grated cheese over the onions. Whisk together 6 large beaten eggs, 1 cup of heavy cream, ½ teaspoon of salt, a dash of red pepper, a dash of white pepper and 1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg. Carefully pour the mixture over the cheese. Sprinkle the remaining half cup of cheese over the egg mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until lightly browned and set in the middle. Cool 15 minutes before serving. Keep breakfast sweet by adding a tasty treat from Ellicottville’s delicious bakery, Cupcaked! Of course, you can’t go wrong with a tasty cupcake, but you can also order traditional breakfast/brunch treats like scones, muffins, cinnamon rolls and more. Stop by Cupcaked at 22 Monroe Street or call 3788850 to place your order.
If flowers or perfume are stand-bys that you’ve resorted to many times before, try a DIY twist on these classic gifts. Use basic sewing skills to make Mom or Grandma sweet-smelling lavender sachets that she can tuck into dresser drawers, her suitcase or linen closet! Think of her style, favorite colors, animals, flowers and more! One yard will make several sachets or, if you’d like to make a variety, consider purchasing a few different fat quarters. Cut 5” squares from the fabric (you can cut several squares at once). Stack two squares with the right sides facing inside. On a sewing machine or by hand, start sewing 1/8” to ¼” in from the edge all the way around the square, leaving at least a ¾” opening. Carefully cut off the corners and turn

the square right side out. Flatten and use your fingers or a pencil to push out the corners. Sew around the edge again, leaving the opening the same size. Use a funnel or a rolled index card to fill the square with dried lavender. For a longer-lasting scent, add a couple of drops of lavender essential oil as you’re filling the square. After the square is filled, shake it to settle the lavender. Be careful not to over-fill! Sew up the opening and get started on your next sachet! Mom, Grandma, or whoever the special Mom-figure in your life is will love this thoughtful gift that makes life a little bit sweeter—just like she does.
