We The seemingly constant flow of people coming in and out of 49 Coffee House & Eatery on Main Street is a welcomed sight and it’s great to see another new business, Dilly Dallies Sauces and Spices, open a few doors down. If a business owner takes that leap and puts merchandise in a vacant storefront, good for them. Now it’ll be our turn as residents to support them. We applaud Jen Weber and her role as executive director of the chamber until her resignation in February, but we’re also excited to see what Ashley Zielinski will do in that role. We talked to her recently and she seems excited about the possibilities that should benefit community residents and businesses alike. As chamber members, we’re on board with helping promote our community in a positive light, too. Speaking of the chamber, kudos to its board members — absent of a director until recently — to organize the Wine & Beer Festival at the fire hall last Saturday. What a treat to see so many people enjoying the tastes of local breweries, wineries and distilleries. Conversations seemed to abound all over the room as glasses were refilled again and again.

Pageant of the Bands May 18-19

P-TECH Project, Budget OK’d By Voters

UPCOMING EVENTS May 19 Pageant of the Bands

BY ALICIA DZIAK The Pageant of Bands is an annual tradition that began over 50 years ago. SGI students run the festival while also performing as an exhibition group in both Jazz and Marching Band. “This is the 56th pageant of bands held here in Springville. It is one of the few remaining band pageants in the entire state,” said SGI high school band director, Joe Gervase. “It serves as a great opportunity for bands of every level to perform and compete while receiving valuable feedback from the adjudicators.” Gervase said that while the pageant itself hasn’t changed much over the years, with the decline of marching bands in our area, the participation See Pageant of the Bands page 7

BY RICH PLACE A $14.73 million capital project that will bring the P-TECH program to Springville was given the green light on Tuesday by district voters. In the annual school budget vote and board member elections, residents by a 396-307 margin passed the third proposition on the ballot to approve the P-TECH project, which will include moving the district offices to the middle school and renovating the current district office building. Voters also approved the $38.82 million 2018-19 budget by a 400-216 margin and approved, 485-214, a proposal to purchase seven 66-passenger school buses as part of the district’s accelerated bus replacement schedule. “We always take it as a vote of confidence when a budget passes,” said Superintendent Kimberly Moritz. “It’s really rewarding for us as a team that the public supports our efforts.” Moritz said she was “delighted” about all the propositions passing but noted she was “concerned” the P-TECH project vote was close and believes there were voters who worried about specific aspects of the project. The superintendent said because of the close vote, she looks forward to continuing to communicate with the community about the project, its impact on the community and answer any lingering questions that remain after the vote. “I think that had a little something to do with people worrying about aspects I hadn’t been able to answer,” Moritz said about the close margin for the P-TECH proposition. “Now I will show it’s not going to cost the local taxpayer anything and it’ll be a great asset for the community.” The P-TECH project has been a significant talking point amongst school administration and the board since the potential for the project first came to light late last year.

Town Board Approves Senior Center Rental Policy


New use and rental policies for the Concord Senior Center, authorization of a new town truck purchase and the appointment of a town court clerk highlighted the May 10 meeting of the Concord Town Board. Unanimous approval by the Concord Town Board of the Senior Center Use Policy and a Facility Rental Agreement was something the board has been working on for a while, said Supervisor Clyde Drake. The policy and rental agreement will better organize which groups are utilizing the facility and how often. There was no formal agreement in place prior to the adoption of the new policy. “We are not trying to eliminate anybody, but we are truly trying to make it a senior center first,” Drake said. Among the language in the policy, it is stated “programs for seniors are given priority” and that the property can also be used in emergency situations as deemed necessary by the town supervisor or a designated representative. The policy also advises that groups other than senior-centric organizations can utilize the town hall as a meeting space. The board also unanimously accepted a resolution to hire Julie Moriarty as court clerk. Drake said the town had previously hired two clerks — See Town Board page 10

What Did You Get Mom? BY JOLENE HAWKINS As Mother’s Day has come and gone, have you ever wondered how some holidays came to be, who started them, and how we celebrate them? In 1908, a woman named Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St. Andrew’s Methodist church in Grafton, West Virginia. Looking through the old newspapers we have, on May 10 of that year, it is asking people to wear a white carnation to pay honor and tribute to the best mother that ever lived — you own. In 1914, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother’s Day be held on the second Sunday in May as a national holiday to honor mothers, and the mothers of Springville were the ones now sporting the white carnations. Ceremonies were in all the churches in town. By 1923, Frank S. Chesbro, owner of Springville Greenhouse, was offering flowers and arrangements for mothers so that people could express those tender sentiments which is so difficult to express in words. Nothing could please a mother more than a gift of flowers! As the years went by, there were ads for fine candy from Teddy’s Candy Kitchen, books, cards and fresh fragrances from Walters’ Pharmacy, and then gloves, hats, shoes, cameras coats, dresses, even washing machines and sewing machines. And we can’t forget jewelry from Sheret’s Jewelry Shop— yes, it is still in business and going strong! For Mother’s Day in 1932, it was recommended to asked young mothers See A Look Back page 8

Easing Pain in Difficult Times

Things are really starting to ramp up around here! Just in the past week, I’ve worked with the Springville Soccer Club to help get things up and running for their first week of games, taken my daughter to ref her first travel soccer game in one of our neighboring towns, and attended the middle school chorus, band and orchestra concert. Regents reviews have also started in anticipation of the upcoming June tests, which means late runs to school for parents. Field trip season is also upon us, and a flurry of permission slips have come my way for Darien Lake, Sprague Brook, a Bisons game, Niagara Falls and more. It’s impressive how much a small town like Springville can offer our kids. They get opportunities in everything from sports and clubs to music, art and science. Kudos to everyone who creates these wonderful opportunities for our children! Chances are, I’ll see you out and about in the upcoming weeks as I run from one thing to the next! - Alicia Dziak, Managing Editor, Springville Times

Zielinski Named Springville Chamber Director BY RICH PLACE

Jake and his mom, Kate, helping to take care of his aunt with the Hospice workers

For his project, seventh grader Jake Werner chose to work with Chautauqua Hospice and Palliative Care because they were the organization that took care of his aunt when she was sick. “All of her caregivers were amazing from the nurse to the social worker to the home health aid and the chaplain,” Jake said. “They are all very special people who made a very difficult time for my family easier.” For the service part of his project, Jake worked with the care team to learn how to take of others and assisted with his aunt when she was sick. “I also did a can drive in a few different areas over several months to make $800 to donate to the organization,” he explained. Jake noted that his favorite part of the project was getting to know the workers and getting closer with his aunt. “The workers are incredible people who have a hard job, but they always had a smile on their faces and made sure that they were there as a support for the family,” he said. “They helped so much. My aunt was a very special lady who always made sure that family came first and I will make sure that I do too.” From doing the project, Jake learned to always help out others no matter what the circumstances are. “Even if something seems hard, you get more back than the effort that you put forth,” he said.

For Ashley Zielinski, it seems a perfect series of events has paved the way for her to promote Springville in bigger and better ways through new opportunities. Zielinski has recently been putting her marketing degree to use at JD’s Brew Pub, where she works to promote events at the business with the larger goal of bringing more people into the community. Now she’ll have a bigger platform to promote Springville, as she was recently named the new executive director at the Springville Chamber of Commerce. “My goal with JD’s was just to make Springville better,” Zielinski said. “We need to be bringing more people to Springville because we are the center of Western New York. “This would just give me a bigger platform,” she said about the chamber position. “I’d be disappointed with myself if I did not take the opportunity to do what I think I can do.” The path that led to Zielinski becoming executive director at the chamber encapsulates what she has been doing — and what she plans to do moving forward — at both JD’s and the chamber. She had organized a small business meetup at JD’s, giving the opportunity for small business owners to network. It wasn’t only geared to promote JD’s but also the community as a whole, she said, by allowing businesses to support each other. The chamber held its own networking event the following day. Zielinski met up with Mike and Elise Rose, owners of Sheret Jewelers and board members with the chamber. They mentioned she should apply for the part-time executive director position; after all, she was already promoting Springville in her role at JD’s. Now she finds herself in that position, filling a seat that has been vacant since Jennifer Weber resigned in February. Zielinski attended her first chamber board meeting on May 1 and attended the Small Business Summit on May 3 on behalf of the chamber. She was able to get started in the office on May 7. “I’m just trying to get things organized how I like to organize,” she said about her first week on the job. “It’s been kind of crazy but once I’m organized and things start

to settle down, it’ll be easier.” Zielinski grew up in Angola and is a graduate of Lake Shore Central School. She attended Canisius College and Bryant & Stratton College for her marketing degree. She moved to Springville about three years ago. She admitted with a laugh she originally obtained her marketing degree to appease her parents, who encouraged her to attend college instead of attending, as she put it, “hair school.” But now she’s putting her marketing degree to good use. “I never thought I would use it again,” she said, noting those at JD’s — and now those at the chamber — saw in her the skills she had to be a good marketer. “I really just want to introduce myself to other local business owners and see what their ideas are, because I’m sure they have ideas for this town and they just haven’t found an outlet to get their ideas across,” she said. The ultimate mission for the chamber is to make Springville a destination, and being the center for the network of businesses is what Zielinski said she hopes to achieve. One idea that Zielinski hopes to execute soon is the idea of Food Truck Thursdays around Fiddlers Green Park at the same time concerts are taking place in the gazebo. That could start as early as June 7, she said, should permits and paperwork allow. Zielinski said her boyfriend is from Springville and so are his parents, so she’s heard a lot about the way Springville used to be. And she’s committed to keeping Springville vibrant and making it even more of a destination for travelers to nearby destination communities like Ellicottville and East Aurora. “When I think about planting my roots here, I want this place to be great,” she said. She wants to do that with the help of area business owners and community members, and encourages anyone with ideas to stop in and see her at the chamber office, located inside the Lucy Bensley Center on North Buffalo Street, during office hours of 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays. She can also be reached via email at Jake holds up his donation check with the support of his extended family and Hospice workers who took care of his aunt in her last weeks.

BY RICH PLACE With a selection of tropical jams playing in the background, Dylan Wheeler stands behind the counter at his new store, Dilly Dallies Spices & Sauces, wearing shorts and flip flops. Not only is winter weather gone, but a slice of the tropics has made its way to Springville through the opening of the new business at 53 East Main St. that offers a variety of hot sauces, barbecue sauces, spice rubs and more. And in the midst of all of it, Wheeler is living the dream. Inspiration for the new business is a combination of Wheeler’s passion for spices and sauces coupled with visiting a similar store his uncle operates in the tourist town of Tarpon Springs, Fla. “He shows up to work in flip flops and shorts and has tropical music going,” Wheeler said. “Nobody is in a bad mood when they walk into a spice shop — everyone is in a great mood, listening to music and the whole nine yards. That’s what I wanted.” When an opportunity presented itself to move into 53 East Main St., the previous home of Locals Lifestyle, Wheeler made the move. Although he admits he almost found himself “dilly dallying” before he made the final decision. “I was pondering one day ‘should I do it, should I not do it’ — should I take the plunge?” Wheeler explained. “I looked up and in my dining room was this sign.” He pointed to a wooden sign he purchased at Lulu

Belle’s down the street a few years ago that read “Life is Short — Don’t Dilly Dally.” “I looked up and that sign was there,” he continued. “So I thought it was a literal and figurative sign that life is short, don’t dilly dally. So that’s where the name came from.” The fact the sign came from Lulu Belle’s a few doors down from Dilly Dallies fits into Wheeler’s idea of keeping things as local as possible when establishing his business. Plenty of aspects to get the business up and going were local, he said. Among them, Springville resident Brady Benz of Benz Custom Woodworking built all the wooden fixtures throughout the store. Another local, Derek Davie of Anchors End Tattoo Shop, designed the logo and it was local Cam Taylor of TGX Taylor’s Generation X that printed the logo on the sign and window. Wheeler began moving into the business just before May 1 to prepare for the Art Crawl. But a week before the crawl, someone shattered one of the store’s front windows with the new vinyl decal on it, creating a noticeable hole for passersby on a busy Main Street. But Wheeler admitted he wasn’t going to slow down with getting his business open and certainly wasn’t going to dwell on it or complain about it. “I’ve got this attitude where it happened, there is literally nothing I can do about it right now,” he said. The window was covered up with a plywood sign painted by Stevie Irving — who operates Irving

Artistry locally — that read “Give to the Community – Don’t Take From It” until a new window was put in on Monday. The plywood sign now hangs in the store. Wheeler previously worked in retail management for more than 20 years before opening his own business. He chose to sell sauces and spices because it’s something he’s interested in and something that’s not offered anywhere in the area. “If you opened up my fridge, the whole thing is filled up with hot sauces or some kind of marinades,” he said. “I’ve tried probably 85 percent of this stuff.” The inventory ranges from hot sauces, barbecue sauces and dry rubs to bloody mary mixes and Cuba Cheese Shoppe cheeses. He said he has hot sauces that “range from zero to more than 10.” One of his goals is to constantly be bringing in new products so a customer will see something new with each visit. “It’s trying to do something for everyone,” he said. “It’s not just the hot stuff. It’s not just the barbecue stuff.” Wheeler said the store will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. An official grand opening — including demos from some of the vendors — is planned for June 1. For additional information on the store and the grand opening celebration, visit Dilly Dallies on Facebook or call the store at (716) 601-8099.

Ryan Stedman Varsity Softball

Ryan is a scholar athlete and is a leader on and off the field. She is in her final season of softball and will be missed at second base next year. Nominated by Coach Kim Pazzuti

Sarah Kester Varsity Softball Sarah is the starting picher for the Lady Griffs and has been for the last four years. Her speed and accuracy are incredible and has sparked a couple colleges’ interest. Whatever Sarah chooses to do, she will excel and have a smaile on her face doing it. Nominated by Coach Kim Pazzuti

Brett Russell Boys Track

Brett Russell had a new personal record in the steeple of 40 seconds on a cold and rainy night, and took two first place finishes in Depew and Maryvale in the mile and two mile. Nominated by Coach Joseph Marvin

By Coach Kim Pazzuti On Tuesday, the varsity softball team brought home a playoff win. On a beautiful afternoon, the

Griffins traveled up to Newfane for a postseason game. Sarah Kester pitched a fantastic game with eight strike outs; and the

defensive behind her were spot on. The outfield, made up of Meadow Wittman, Marin Lehr, and Nicole

Sacilowski, ran perfect angles to catch each ball that sailed out there. Ryan Stedman made each play at second base look easy, and Meghan Rehauer took her time and made perfect throws to first base. Olivia Fisher, behind home plate, let nothing by her. Sarah Kester’s bat was on fire, hitting two doubles and a triple. Meadow Wittman had two doubles, Ryan Stedman and Nicole Sacilowski each had two RBIs, and Olivia Fisher hit a double, single, and had four RBIs. Next up, the girls face off against Olean, in Olean on Thursday. Good luck girls!

SGI Grad to Compete at Regionals for Hammer Throw

BY ALICIA DZIAK Emily Zebrowski, who just finished up her sophomore year at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), where she majors in mechanical engineering and has a summer internship lined up at Moog, has more to be proud of than academics. The 2016 SGI grad is on her way to regionals for track and field, competing in the hammer throwing event. This accomplishment comes after Emily competed in the Liberty League Championships, held on her home field at RIT, taking first place in hammer throwing against at least 30 other competitors, and taking fourth place in discus. While captaining SGI’s girls track team in high school, Emily said her

track coach, SGI Phys. Ed. teacher Mark Heichberger, encouraged her to try hammer throwing. She picked it up quickly, and currently holds the school record. “Coach Heichberger influenced me a lot,” Emily said. “He was always positive and always pushing me to not only be a better thrower, but to be a better person.” Upon entering RIT, Emily decided to continue on with her skills, and her leadership was noticed by her college coaches as well. As only a sophomore, she is one of the team’s captains. Emily will compete at regionals at Brockport this week, and from there, may have the opportunity to go to Nationals, held in Wisconsin. Good luck Emily!

Last weekend, they played Iroquois and lost in the last minute of the game 7-6. Sydney Fuller played an outstanding game, one timing the ball in for two goals while also taking strong draws. Other goals that game were followed by Deanna Johnson, Lizzy Clark and Brooke Kazmierczak. Strong defense was played by Lizzy Clark and Cassie Adanti.

Club Soccer Season Underway

VARSITY BASEBALL Wednesday, May 9 Springville 6, East Aurora 3 The Griffins swept the Blue Devils this season with a 6-3 win last Wednesday. Springville also beat East Aurora for the Griffins’ first win of the season on April 23. In the latest contest, Springville tallied 5 hits included 2 each by Shaun Wright and Evan Elkins. Logging 1 RBI each in the game was Jarrett Wolf, Mike Sobota, Matt Evans, Cody Wells and Austin Lux. After the Griffins jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the third inning, the Blue Devils provided a scare in the fourth by tallying 3 runs. Springville improved its lead with 2 runs in the sixth.

Monday, May 14 Springville 11, Pioneer 7 The Griffins scored 2 runs each in the first three innings to start the game off well and didn’t look back, defeating Pioneer for Springville’s fourth win in a row. Dan Robertson had 5 hits in the game and Austin Lux had 4. Four players — Jarrett Wolf, Robertson, Shaun Wright and Lux — each tallied 2 RBI. JV BASEBALL Wednesday, May 9 Springville 8, Eden 6 A 5-run second inning sparked the Griffins JV squad to an 8-6 win on May 9. The team survived a scare as Eden mounted a 3-run rally in the game’s final inning. Nick Emmick had 2 hits and Keaton Wnuk tallied 2 RBI in the win. On the mound, Emmick tallied 4 strikeouts in 5 innings of work. Thursday, May 10 Iroquois 13, Springville 6 Springville attempted to mount a comeback with 5 runs total across the third and fourth innings, but a 4-run sixth inning by Iroquois increased their lead on the way to the win. Alex Elkins fanned four batters in a 2 1/3 innings pitched. Friday, May 11 (doubleheader) Springville 12, Tonawanda 0 Springville 6, Tonawanda 4 An 8-run second inning in the first game and 5 runs in the first two innings of the second game propelled the Griffins in the doubleheader. In the 12-0 win, Travis Mansfield for Springville tallied 5 RBI and Nick Pfarner struck out 4 batters. Tonawanda was limited to only 1 hit in the first contest. GIRLS TRACK Payton Rowe won the 400 hurdles at the Pembroke Invitational and came in 2nd place in the 100 meter hurdles. Payton also was the lead leg of the 4 x 100 meter relay team that finished in 2nd place. Payton is a team leader and has won the 400 meter hurdles in every meet that she has run them in this season. We finished the league season 2-2. We had two wins by a large amount and two losses that both came down to the last two events. That puts us third in the division: East Aurora 4-0, Alden 3-1, SGI 2-2, Depew 1-3 Maryvale 0-4. Our main goal now is to run, jump, and throw as many personal best times or distances as possible and to have as many athletes qualify for sectionals as we can. We had a very good league season. If a few races went our way, we could have been division champions this year. We lose four seniors that have all been major contributors (Elle Russell, Mackenzie Engel, Lizzy Miranda, and Corrin Sacilowski), but we have a really strong group of girls coming back next year. (including all four members of our record breaking 4 x 100 team).

U12 boys vs. Orchard Park Photos by Tim Oakley

BY ALICIA DZIAK Starting a soccer club. It doesn’t sound like it would be that big of an undertaking, but behind the scenes, it’s been something that started last August. After months of preparations, the Springville Soccer Club’s two younger teams competed in their first games on Monday. The U12 boys, coached by Brian Jenis, took on Orchard Park at home and came away with a big win. The U14 girls, coached by Jason Bond, headed to Akron and came up with a loss despite their best efforts. For the next 10 weeks, both of these teams will play every Monday. The club’s two older teams—U16 girls and U16 boys—are slated to start games next week.

It’s Festival Season! BY MARY HEYL Memorial Day Weekend is almost here, which means it’s time to mark your calendar for the many festivals taking place this summer throughout Cattaraugus and Erie counties! Whether you enjoy arts and crafts, locally-made horseradish or live music, there’s something for every member of the family to enjoy all summer long. Twin Maple Event Management (TMEM) is hosting its third annual series of artisan festivals at Granny’s Boot Antiques, home of the Grevpode Gallery, at 10761 Miller Road in Springville. Now through September, Granny’s Boot hosts a monthly outdoor festival featuring artists, exhibitors, demonstrators, music, food and more. Each month features a different theme: May’s festival, which takes place on May 19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., is fiberthemed! In this case, fiber refers to any kind of animal fleece that can be made into a warm garment or unique craft! Demonstrators will be on site showing visitors how fiber can be spun into yarn, and there will also be weavers showing visitors how to use this hand-made yarn. From felted items to knitted items, there will be a variety of crafters and artisans who use this unique medium to make all kinds of beautiful pieces. Like all TMEM artisan festivals, this event is free to attend and children are welcome! For more information, including vendor registration, visit Saturday, June 2 is the Hinsdale Horseradish Festival taking place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Hinsdale Memorial Park at 1547 Gile Hollow Road in the Town of Hinsdale. Just a half mile south of I-86, the park is easy to find and the perfect venue for “everything horseradish.” Hinsdale’s connection to horseradish dates back to the early 20th century, when a local woman, Maude Bell, and her family grew horseradish along the Ischua Creek and transported it by horse and buggy to sell at the markets in Olean! Of course, there will be plenty of opportunities to eat and buy horseradish, as well as a variety of other items from festival vendors, such as wine, craft beer, pottery, handmade jewelry, furniture, handmade soaps, crafts, candles, paintings and more! This year’s festival includes a car show from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., as well as live music until 8:00 p.m. For more information, visit the Hinsdale Horseradish Festival’s event page on Facebook. “Become Greek for a day” at the Buffalo Greekfest from Friday, June 1 through Sunday, June 3!

will become a center for the program, which is expected to teach electrical construction/maintenance electrician and computer information system programs. Students will graduate from the program with not only a Regents diploma but also an associate’s degree. Attendees will consist of students across Erie 2 BOCES, including five from Springville who will begin the program next year. Now that the vote passed, the next step is for the project’s architects to refine plans and submit to the state Department of Education for approval. That aspect of the process is estimated to take about 40 weeks, Moritz said. It’s hopeful the bid process and construction will begin early next year. The program will begin this September in the high school building but will exceed the space by the 2020-21 school year, warranting the new P-TECH campus to be open by September 2020. Also on election night, unopposed school board incumbents Daniel J. Miess and Tyler Sullivan were reelected to their seats after earning 502 and 550 votes, respectively.

How To Create An EyeCatching Gallery Wall

Gallery walls, also called moment walls, are one of today’s hottest home decor trends. Gallery walls enable homeowners to create visually appealing groupings of photos, frames, wall art, and much more to dress up any room in the house. Gallery walls can make a statement in the living room, add finesse to an entryway or showcase special items along a staircase. One need only do a quick internet search or browse through lifestyle magazines to see examples of gallery walls for inspiration. Anyone with a little determination can design a gallery wall. • Find your muse. The first step to creating a gallery wall is to choose a theme. If floral prints are your thing or you love abstract art, build your gallery around these elements. You can even use color or frame style as the coordinating factor. • Take your time. Some people rush into creating gallery walls, and that can be a mistake. Spend time picking out pieces and trying different combinations before you take out the hammer and hardware. The mix should

be captivating and look like it was a curated collection. Some pieces can be highend, while others may be picked up at flea markets or even be your own artwork or photography. • Experiment with dimensions and levels. Gallery walls need not be restricted to flat photos on a wall. Texture and depth can be used in wall designs. Intersperse shelving, sconces, wooden letters, clocks, and more to make the gallery even more eclectic. Feel free to build the gallery around items that are in the house, such as windows or televisions. This can help electronics blend into the design. • Establish your focal point. Pottery Barn suggests making the center of the display at eye level, roughly 66 inches off the ground. Then build the gallery out

from around that focal point. There are many patterns that can be built into the gallery, from “spiralâ€? to “centeredâ€? to “reflectionâ€? designs. • Create a template. Lay the gallery design on the floor and cut newspapers or other paper to the size of each piece. Use masking tape to position these guides on the wall, trying a few arrangements until you are happy with the finished product. Then replace the paper with the artwork. • Hang items with precision. Don’t skimp on technique. Use a ruler, level and the right tools. This ensures pieces are straight and in line with others. Gone are the days when large pieces of artwork fill empty walls. Gallery designs add statements and can balance rooms in creative ways.

Town Board

Continued from front page Moriarty and Debra Smith, who both serve as village court clerks — on a temporary basis before moving forward with this permanent decision. The two temporary positions were established after there were no qualified candidates for the job when it was originally posted, Drake said. “To be truthful with you, both village clerks were interested in the job but according to our policy, we have to give town residents preference,” he said. The board also approved Highway Superintendent Dennis Dains to proceed with the purchase of a new town truck, at a cost of about $227,000. The purchase will be a “piggyback” bid off a bid by Cattaraugus County, Dains said. Drake said the purchase replaces a 1999 model that was experiencing a handful of issues. “Denny does a good job looking at his trucks and making repairs when he has to, but it comes to a point where you are throwing good money at bad equipment,” Drake said. Drake told the board money from reserves will fund about $200,000 of the total cost and some funding will be used from the sale of the old truck. He noted he doesn’t expect the town to borrow any money for the purchase. IN OTHER BUSINESS, the board: • approved a resolution supporting the cleanup of the West Valley Demonstration Project in nearby Ashford, stating in the resolution “the site should not be used for long-term waste storage;” • approved Springville Center for the Arts to use the shared parking lot on June 8 for setup of the organization’s gala and mini-golf event on June 9. The SCA will also use tables and chairs from the town hall for the event; • learned the all-class reunion is expected to be a larger event this year with a craft vendor section after requests came from vendors who ordinarily rent space at the Dairy Festival, which is not taking place this year; • learned the Town Highway Department has been conducting spring cleanup work, including cleaning up from the windstorm in early March throughout the town. The next meeting of the Concord Town Board is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, June 14 in the Town Hall on Franklin Street.

At 76, Glenwood’s Charlie Miess to Pedal 547 Miles for Cancer Research Yes, you read that headline correctly. Glenwood cyclist, Charlie Miess, 76 years young, will take off July 29 from New York City and pedal seven days, arriving in Niagara Falls on Aug. 4. He is riding to raise money for cuttingedge research at the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. Charlie lost his mother to ovarian cancer when she was only 63 years old. He also lost his first wife and several others in his immediate and extended family to various forms of cancer. Happily, there are survivor stories as well among his friends and family, thanks largely to Roswell Park. Combining his love for bike riding and his passion to help end cancer, Charlie’s goal is to raise at least $3,500 for cancer research on this—his magnum opus of bicycle riding. He’s hoping that some of you out there in reader-land will be inspired to donate on his behalf for this worthy cause. Donation information is included at the end of this article. If you live within 20 miles of Springville, it’s likely you’ve seen Charlie out and about over the past few years. Despite being older than dirt, he dons his cycling jersey and spandex shorts (oh my!), jumps on his sporty 27-speed bike, and pedals from Glenwood to Springville every chance he gets. He generally follows a convoluted route so that he has at least 16 miles to his credit before the first stop at McDonald’s for a breakfast sandwich and coffee. After a brief flirtation with the girls behind the counter (Hi Sue, Ashley, Marcie, Lisa and Lisa) he settles down with some of the other retired regulars for a little friendly gossip. Soon Charlie is on his way again. It might be to

the end of Henrietta Road to inspect Blesy’s picturesque dairy farm (go Upstate Farms!) or down Peter’s Road to Schichtel’s Nursery to ensure they’re doing a proper job growing their trees (he thinks they are). If he feels energetic, he may even take a side trip over the hills to West Valley before returning to Springville to do a little light shopping. If you happen to be walking down the sidewalk as he goes by, it’s quite likely that he will wave and say something like “Beautiful day, today, ain’t it?” Charlie believes that the worst insult a person can give another is to pass by without acknowledging their existence. He even extends that principle to animals. When he passes a pasture full of cows and several interrupt their grazing to give him their best impression of a bovine smile, he can’t help but respond with: “G’day ladies.” Horses get a hearty “Hi horsy.” Dogs are greeted with a “How ya doin’ Poochie?”—unless, of course, the pooch is about to sink his teeth into Charlie’s ankle. In that case, the conversation turns ugly real fast. Some of you may have seen him only through the windshield of your car and he may have waved and mouthed a friendly “thank you” for respecting his right-of-way. Charlie tries to be considerate to motorists because he knows that a confrontation between a man on a bicycle and 2000 pounds of rolling steel can end only one way. He often wishes more bicyclists were aware of that simple fact. If you shop at Lowes or Tops or Walmart, you may have seen him clomping around the store in his stiffsole biking shoes while trying to look nonchalant. He always slips on a pair of baggy shorts before entering

a business establishment so he doesn’t end up featured in one of those “Walmart Shoppers” photo series that you often see posted on Facebook. On occasion (rare occasions, mind you) he may stop at Cheap Chollies (Hey Kathy) for a bottled libation to be reserved for special occasions at home. With shopping done and 30 or 40 miles under his belt, he unbuckles that belt, strips off his baggy shorts, and blissfully heads back to Glenwood in form-fitting spandex. Charlie rides because he loves bicycling and likes to stay fit. And, as mentioned earlier, he is also passionate about fighting cancer. For the past 12 years, he has participated in the Ride for Roswell providing the minimum fundraising requirement mainly from his own pocket. However, this year’s week-long ride from NYC to Niagara Falls involves a whole new level of giving and he’s hoping for some help. It’s called the Empire State Ride and is also organized by Roswell

Park to raise money for cancer research. So you see, when he pedals his . . . er . . . derrière about town, it’s for the purpose of training— training to ride up to 91 miles a day on that trip across the state for the most worthy of causes. And if that doesn’t move you, perhaps you have a soft spot in your heart for a crazy old man who’s trying to make a difference. He would be most grateful. No amount is too small. If you wish to make a tax-deductible donation on Charlie’s behalf by credit card, please go to CharlesMiess on your computer. If you prefer to donate by check*, please make the check payable to Empire State Ride and mail to: Empire State Ride PO Box 644 Buffalo, NY 14240-0644 * Don’t forget to put Charlie Miess’s name on the check’s memo line.

Maple Madness to Benefit The Children’s League BY ALICIA DZIAK The Children’s League, located on North St. in Springville, has been in operation since 1961. Originally known as The League For The Handicapped Preschool Learning Center, it went through a name change a few years ago. As the Children’s League has continued to grow and evolve, the need for more space, specifically the need for a multi-purpose room, has been recognized. According to a recent press release, this past year, Soderholm Engineering Associates, Orchard Park, NY completed a feasibility study which developed design and construction costs for The Children’s League. This addition will include: a multi-purpose room for large group gatherings that can also be used as an indoor playground during inclement weather, an evaluation room for therapists, a classroom, a kitchen, and bathrooms. The $1.5M project will need help from fundraisers, as well as grant money. One fundraiser effort is Maple Madness, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Springville, which will be held on Saturday, June 2 at Wendel’s Sugar House, at 12502 Vaughan St. in East Concord. “The Kiwanis Club of Springville and Kiwanis International share a mission to improve the world by making lasting differences in the lives of children,” explained Margaret Chapman, event co-chairperson of the Kiwanis Club of Springville. She said that Springville Kiwanis first became involved in supporting The Children’s League’s programs eight years ago by holding their first 5k race to raise funds for its Autism Program. “Upon developing a working relationship with The Children’s League, awareness was raised as to the need for adding on a multi-purpose room to allow development of space for large group family events and a place for the children to engage in much needed movement activities, especially during the winter when the playground is not available,” Chapman said. According to Chapman, five years ago, the Niagara Frontier South Division of Kiwanis initiated fundraising efforts for this project. They recognized that The Children League provided valuable services to children and their families within the Division’s geographical area that is composed of 17 clubs across WNY.

Two years ago, Marty Wendel, owner of Wendel’s Poultry, offered to sponsor the event locally at his place of business free of charge. “The Wendel family is very communityoriented and willing to help in any way they can,” noted Chapman. “It’s their way to give back to a community that supports them. Wendel’s Sugar Shack is a perfect place for people to gather and enjoy fellowship. Maple syrup provides a sweet theme to build upon.” Maple Madness is a 21 and over event, and will be held on Saturday, June 3 from 6 to 10 p.m. Admission is $20 and includes music by JT & Jon Law, light refreshments, a silent auction and maple tastings. Guests are invited to enter a maple appetizer and/or maple dessert with a chance to win a prize for the best! Beer, wine and pop will also be available for purchase. Donations are also needed for auction items, contest prizes, or sponsorships with monetary donations. The Children’s League is a 501 (c) (3) not for profit organization and all donations are considered tax deductible. If you would like to make a donation please make checks payable to The Children’s League c/o Margaret Chapman, Kiwanis Representative, The Children’s League, 393 North St., Springville, NY 14141. Pre-sale tickets are available at Wendel’s and at the Children’s League, and those buying theirs pre-sale will be entered to win a $100 gift certificate to Jake’s Greenhouse. Tickets will also be avilable at the door. “People who come are assured they are supporting and improving the quality of programs for the children and their families that attend The Children’s League,” noted Chapman. Monies raised go directly to The Children’s League multi-purpose room account. Future fundraisers that also support The Children’s League include: • Aug. 4 -9, Annual Christine Padasak Memorial Autism Awareness 5K & Family Fun Walk ( funds raised to support training and to purchase educational materials). • Sept. 22 - 7th Annual Night Under the Stars this year at the Springville Country Club ( funds raised to support general funds).

OUTDOORS & Entertainment Numerous Allegany State Park Cabins Getting Upgraded If you’re an Allegany State Park enthusiast, you know there are hundreds of cabins in the park ranging from the large Taft cabin with two porches and running water to the very basic Creekside cabins just one trail over. Some cabins appear to have been recently updated, while others could use some TLC. If spending your summer days at the park is high on your priority list, your options for updated cabins are about to increase. Ryan Cabin Trail Renovations The 10 historic cabins on Ryan Trail received major exterior renovations last summer and fall with the help of HistoriCorps (which saves historic places for public benefit through partnerships that foster public involvement, engage volunteers and provide training and education), a not-for-profit building preservation organization that trains volunteers to learn how to restore historic structures. Their crews focused on a number of building tasks on the exteriors of the cabins including stabilizing support piers, installing new roofs and copper flashing, repairing and replacing portions of siding, rehabilitating windows, repairing flooring and steps and was capped off with painting of the entire exteriors. Alfred State College also participated on this unique collaboration between HistoriCorps and Allegany State Park. As HistoriCorps wrapped up


Cabins on the Ryan trail have been renovated and are once again rentable to park patrons.

their project work late last fall, park tradespersons went to work over the winter months on making some additional improvements to the cabin interiors. The pine paneling in each cabin was sandblasted using a special corn media in order to remove the old darkened finish, much of which had graffiti. Wood burning fireplace inserts were installed along with refinishing the fireplace mantles. Once that special process was completed, staff re-coated each cabin interior with clear finish. Kitchen areas of each cabin were also repainted and updated with new refrigerators and cook stoves. Finishing touches are just being completed, including installation of new roll-up shades for privacy and all floors are being painted. This much needed work will ensure these historic cabins built in the 1930s are

Fifteen new cottages have been built in the Cain Hollow area of the park. These new 600-square-ft. full service, three-season cottages feature a bathroom, and comfortably sleep 4-5 with one full size bed, one twin bed and one full size futon. They will also include linens and kitchen utensils. “We’re hoping the first seven will be ready by the end of May, with the remaining eight ready two weeks after,” said Mark Barbera of ASP Partners LLC, the licensee for development of the cottages inside the park. (ASP Partners was also responsible for building the newer Bova and Parallel cottages inside the park, although Barbera notes the new cottages are smaller.) Nestled in the hills behind Quaker Lake, Barbera said the cottages offer spectacular views of the valley. “People will love the location,” he said. The cottages can be reserved at www.reserveamerica. com once they’re completed; stay tuned to the park’s Facebook page or the Friends of Allegany State Park’s Facebook page for info as it becomes available.

Rusted Root Lead Singer to Perform with New Band in Ellicottville

If you’re like me, who went to college in the 90s, you’ve at least heard of Rusted Root. My freshman year at RIT was one I considered my “alternative days” when it came to my music taste (which morphed into my “hip hop days” by the next year). I, of course, was a member of Columbia House and BMG and stocked my (free?) CD collection with everything from Blues Traveler and Weezer to Alannis and Jewel. But topping all of my favorites from those days n was Rusted Root. Classics like “Send Me on My Way” would often be stuck in my head, and even as I write this article, there it sits: “I would like to...reach out my hand...” Over the years, I’ve attended a handful of Rusted Root concerts to hear their catchy roots rock. The last time I saw Rusted Root, they were playing at Ellicottville’s Summer Music Festival at Holiday Valley two years ago. They sounded just like I remembered them from t back in the day. This year, when the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce released the festival schedule, I was

UpRooted’s new sound, which Glabicki describes as “more groove-oriented” with more guitar work. (Take a listen! Head to youtube and search “Man Not a Machine.”) “These guys are really solid, inspiring and intuitive,” Glabicki said of his bandmates. “They know where the music needs to go and they just take it there.” Glabicki noted that the show will be improvisational. “The groove can change every night and the meanings of songs change every night,” he said. “Sometimes we’re

as surprised as the audience on where the music goes, and we like it like that.” Of his return to Ellicottville, Glabicki said, “It’s a great town— a cool place with a unique vibe and a lot of culture.” He’s looking forward to spending the pre-show time in Ellicottville “soaking up something” and checking out the local eateries. “I’m a foody!” he said.

Event Center The Trading Post Community Care Center will host its next fundraising effort, “Hike 4 Hunger,” on Sunday, June 10 at Sprague Brook Park. Check-in starts at 11:30 a.m. at the casino shelter and the hike begins at 12:30 p.m. Hikers are invited to sign up, ask friends and family to sponsor them and bring pledge cards/donations to check-in. Prizes will be awarded for the four highest donation totals. In addition, there will be a post-hike cookout, games, themed basket raffles and a 50/50 raffle. Participants can register and pledge forms can be downloaded on the Trading Post’s website at

tradingpost. Organizers are looking for more people interested in getting involved by donating a gift or theme basket or volunteer to help at the park. To volunteer, call (716) 440-8703. The event will support the goal and mission of the Trading Post’s Community Kitchen and Food Pantry, which is to reach out by “Showing God’s love by sharing a meal with our neighbors and offering a hand of friendship.” Over the last several years, the Trading Post Community Care Center has seen a rise the number of families, especially seniors and working families, needing help with food, clothing, housing

and other basic needs. The Trading Post consistently serves over 5,000 hot meals per year and logs more than 1,000 volunteer hours to accomplish this work. In our rural area, many seniors and those who are disabled struggle with fixed incomes and many families are trying to live on low wage incomes. Due to these factors, the Trading Post has seen the need to continue its outreach and are seeking more caring volunteers to reach out through our Community “Soup” Kitchen. The Trading Post offers a “free hot meal” to the public every Wednesday at noon and it is open to anyone!
