It’s Mudslide Weekend in Ellicottville, and you know what that means...runners, obstacles, plenty of mud and loads of crazy fun! On Saturday, June 16, the annual Mudslide returns to the slopes of Holiday Valley, bringing competitors of all ages and abilities. Heck, you might also see Superman or Big Foot out on the course! Racers get a chairlift ride up to the starting line at Spruce Lake. From there, competitors can choose from two distances—a 3.5 mile or a 5.4 mile course. Each course boasts numerous obstacles designed to get you down and dirty. This year, the Mudslide will feature three new obstacles, the first of which is located on the top of Tannenbaum and features a series of two giant rollers. Another new obstacle is a balance beam in the ‘big ditch’ area between Tannenbaum and Morning Star, and the third is a wall rope climb on Foxfire for the long course. Both courses end at the giant mudslide down the bottom of the Yodeler slope, and competitors slip and slide their way down the mountain into a giant mud puddle. Make a splash, cross the finish line and celebrate! Want to make it even more fun? Costumes are encouraged, and prizes will be awarded to the most creative.

Father’s Day weekend is the perfect time to show Dad some love (and a great time!) by sharing a memorable experience together at one of the region’s great outdoor events taking place this weekend. From hiking to biking to hitting the links, there are lots of great ways for families to get away for the day and celebrate the special man in their life. Head to Sky High at Holiday Valley, where dad can climb free on June 17 with a paid admission. Take him into the Aerial Park, where he can choose from courses of varying difficulty, making his way from one platform to the next on ladders, ropes, ziplines and everything in between. Make reservations to secure your spot. As part of Griffis Sculpture Park’s free summer series, take dad on a guided hike through the park from noon to 2 p.m. on June 16.

Relay for Life of the Fairgrounds Raises Funds for Cancer Research By Deb Everts

The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life took place all day June 9 at the Cattaraugus County Fairgrounds, part of the year-long fundraising effort that began at the conclusion of last year’s Relay event. Organizer Sherry Charlesworth said Relay for Life of the Fairgrounds is in its third year at the Cattaraugus County Fairgrounds in Little Valley. Prior to that, the Relay was held in Ellicottville at the school grounds for about 20 years. Charlesworth said they were not provided with a staff partner from the American Cancer Society this year, so they were considered a “DIY Relay” and they did this Relay on their own. A total was not available at press time but, as of June 6, the teams who were part of the Relay for Life of the Fairgrounds had collectively raised $18,114.94 with a goal of $40,000, which they hope to raise by October. “We had about 16 teams signed up, but not all of them participated on Saturday. We don’t walk the dirt track at the fairgrounds. We walk around the midway area, which is partly paved and part is surface treated,” she said. “Olean is not doing their Relay this year, so they joined us for this year.” There were various fundraisers at each team booth during the Relay, where the teams sold or raffled off a wide-variety of items. The raffles included drawing for baskets, a picnic table and a 55-inch TV. There was all kinds of food. Each team chose a different board game to represent, so they incorporated that particular game into their fundraising efforts. All the participants have a story about a friend or loved one who has battled some type of cancer or a story of their own. Little Valley residents Charlene Rohwer and her daughter, Michelle Benson, are both survivors of uterine cancer. Rohwer, 62, who battled her cancer in 2000, said her mother had both uterine and cervical cancer, enduring radiation and cobalt treatments. “The Relay means a lot to us because our family — aunts, uncles, grandparents — have battled so many different types of cancers,” Rohwer said.

Little Valley residents, Charlene Rohwer and her daughter, Michelle Benson, are both survivors of uterine cancer. Rohwer battled her cancer in 2000 and Benson fought her battle in 2009, but they are both in remission and doing well.

Benson, 41, fought her battle in 2009 but, like her mother, she is in remission and doing well. “We’ve lost a lot of family members and friends,” Benson said. “The uterine cancer alone is generational for us.” Event Leadership team member Chrissy Butcher of Little Valley raised $85 for her Relay team, Shuhari Karate Dojo, by donning a padded red suit and letting kids take turns punching her to the tune of “Hit Me With Your Best Shot.” Butcher, who works for New Directions in Randolph, said her uncle is a survivor and her grandfather is currently being treated for skin cancer. She and her husband, Jim, used to participate in the Frewsburg Relay, but when Ellicottville Relay moved to Little Valley, they started coming here. “The last two years, we’ve had our own team, Shuhari Karate Dojo, and I’ve been on the committee. I will continue to be here as long as we continue to do this event,” she said. As with every year, Deb Melaro-Brandenstein and her husband, Bill Brandenstein, of Olean, were in attendance to support the Relay. Both of them lost their late spouses to cancer. Melaro-Brandenstein said her first husband, Angelo Melaro, lost his battle in 2007 to renal cell carcinoma, kidney cancer. “After five years or so, I decided to see if there was anybody out there that I would want to start ‘chapter two’ with,” she said. “Then I met Bill, from West Middlesex, Pa., who had lost his first wife

to Lymphoma cancer. He’s the one who got me into the Relay.” Melaro-Brandenstein said, in addition to her late husband, she has lost a few friends to cancer over the years, as well as former classmates and her mother who was a breast cancer survivor. “The Relay is something you do because you hope to make a difference somehow, for someone,” she said. “In terms of fundraisers, Relay has brought the American Cancer Society more funding for research and rides for people to go for treatment. There’s much more that a lot of people don’t know about.” Melaro-Brandenstein said the Luminaria ceremony that concludes the Relay is inspiring and beautiful when all the luminaria around the track are lit. The ceremony is to celebrate cancer survivors and remember those who have battled cancer. “There’s a commonality here,” she said. “Everybody out there knows somebody whose lives has been touched by cancer whether it’s a family member, a neighbor or a coworker. We’ve all lost someone and it’s kind of disheartening to see so many months of work, with so few people showing up.” The fundraising continues through October if people want to contribute or donate to the cause.

........................... SCHOOL & COMMUNITY Three Sign Permits Approved at Ellicottville Village Board Meeting By Caitlin Croft

The June 2018 meeting of the Ellicottville Village Planning Board opened with an architectural review of 21 Elizabeth St. This is regarding a garage renovation and a second story will be added. This will consist of one bedroom, sitting room and bathroom. Because there is no kitchen and there is access via stairs to the first floor of the garage, it best fits the definition of a lock out room. This does not require a public hearing, but notices were sent to the neighbors. All set backs have been met but two and the Zoning Board of Appeals granted two variances for the garage. They asked the applicant to move the garage 5 feet east and 4 feet north so that it matches the existing rear line of the garage. The board discussed how if this were to be rented, it would need a special use permit, but at this time, the applicant will keep it for personal use. This is a Type 2 Action under the

State Environment Quality Review and requires no referral to the County Planning Board. There was a motion to determine this is a Type 2 Action under SEQR and requires no further action; there was a second and ayes carried. There was a motion to approve the Architectural Design with the condition that at this time the lock out room cannot be used for rental purposes; there was a second and ayes carried. Next was three sign permits. The first was an off premise sign for the Silver Fox. There were concerns regarding the jersey barrier that was proposed by the applicant to deter trucks from hitting the sign. The board asked the applicant if they could install balusters instead but the applicant voiced concerns that trucks cut the corner there and if they are damaged he would be continuously repairing them. This brought up a larger issue of deterring the trucks from cutting that corner as they deliver to the local merchants. With the new Town/

Village Engineer, the board decided he would come up with the best solution to protect the sign and deter the trucks. There was a motion to approve the sign as presented with the condition that a working solution is reached to fix the jersey barrier with a planter that would deter trucks; there was a second and ayes carried. Flowers off the Farm, located in the old Ellicottville Inn building at 10 Washington St., applied for a hanging sign permit. All requirements have been met— there was a motion to approve; a second and ayes carried. Gowanda Harley Davidson also applied for a hanging sign permit. This sign would hang from the current brackets that are on the building. There was a motion to approve; a second and ayes carried. There was a motion to adjourn the meeting; a second and ayes carried. The next meeting of the Village Planning Board will be Tuesday, July 10 at 5:30 p.m.

Health & Fitness:

Consistency is the Key to Fitness

By Kim Duke NETA & AAFA Certified Trainer

Through my years as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor, I have noticed the one main ingredient that keeps people from reaching their fitness goals—consistency! People tend to be impatient when it comes to exercise. Too many times people do not give their exercise plans enough time to reap the benefits they are looking for. No matter what we do in life, we will not achieve the success we want unless we work at it day in and day out for months and months. The same goes for your exercise programs. You can have the best trainer in the world, and the best diet to follow, but if you do not stick with it consistently, you will wind up spinning your wheels. This can be very frustrating for someone who is trying to achieve fitness goals. I feel there are three main components in any exercise program to build lean muscle and lose unwanted body fat: strength training, cardiovascular exercise and proper nutrition. All three are equally important on achieving your goals in fitness. If one is not executed consistently, the other two will suffer and so will your progress. Don’t get me wrong; to assume we can be perfect, 100 percent of the time will just be setting ourselves up for failure. Our goal should be to follow our programs the best we can day in and day out, most of the time. The longer the time you stick with something, the better

you will become at it. Strength training has always been my favorite piece of the exercise equation. Depending on your goals, you should perform some type of strength training with weights anywhere from 3-6 times per week. The importance of strength training is that it will help increase your lean, tone, body mass, thus giving a better shape to the body and increasing your basal metabolic rate. Muscle is like a 24-hour furnace, so we must be sure we maintain or even increase our lean muscle to keep the metabolism on the rise. To help keep you more dedicated, find a workout partner or hire the help of a qualified personal trainer; this way, you are held accountable. I am more likely to go to the gym if I know there is someone waiting for me. Also having a training partner or trainer will keep you more focused and motivated during your workouts and will keep you from getting bored of the same old routine. Cardiovascular activity is necessary to keep the metabolism roaring and help you burn some extra calories that will lead to fat loss. The main reason I choose to do a good amount of cardio is that it allows me to eat more food and still achieve the fat loss results I am looking for. Some people who rely on diet alone to lose fat usually find themselves losing weight but also a lot of muscle. Keeping a little bit more food in the diet, but using cardio to burn more calories will end up in retention of lean muscle while losing the fat. I would recommend doing your cardio first thing in the morning, 30 minutes plus, before breakfast. This way, it is out of the way, and it will really boost your energy for a good portion of the day to follow. It is a little tough in the beginning, but after a week, you will feel so good doing it, you will be locked into a routine. If there is no way you can do it first thing in the morning, do it right after you train with weights or at night after your last

meal. Bring a headset with your favorite music to help the time go faster. The nutrition element can be the toughest piece in our fitness equation. This is where I find that biggest inconsistency lies in most people. Some are good for 2-3 days, and then blow it for 2 days, etc. This vicious cycle will lead to frustration. Instead of following an extreme diet plan, follow a nutrition plan that is moderate and one you feel you can follow every day for most of the time. Find a plan that is filled with the healthy foods you like. No, this does not mean ice cream, but once in a long while, you can indulge and enjoy. Moderation is the key. If you mess up and indulge in one or two of your meals, the day is not ruined, just start back to your diet for your next meal following. Convenience is a big factor that affects the consistency of eating the right foods. I recommend you get in the habit of preparing your own meals ahead of time. This will eliminate the excuses of stopping off at a fast food place because you have nothing to eat. It will eliminate the excuse for skipping a much-needed meal. The best thing about preparing your meals is that you know exactly what you are eating, and have complete control of the food you eat. It takes a minimum of around two weeks of a consistent eating regime to start boosting your metabolism and making results as far as lean muscle gain and fat loss. A consistent routine will take some time to develop. After a couple of weeks, it will be part of your every day routine. Once you hit that level it is smooth sailing, almost “autopilot.” You will get used to it, and there will come a point where you will not even think about it because it will be a consistent part of your daily routine. It is just a matter of convincing yourself that you can do it, and giving yourself time to get there.

Village Board Submits Downtown Revitalization Initiative Grant Application By Caitlin Croft

The good news that the Downtown Revitalization Initiative Grant application has been submitted opened the June meeting of the Ellicottville Village Board on Tuesday. The village has been working on the application for some time with the aid of a grant writer, assistant, survey and three public meetings. Those who attended the meetings or provided an email on the survey received a copy of the application. Two checks were also received from the county for the mortgage tax and sales tax totaling just over $100,000. Mayor John Burrell noted this is 3.1 percent higher than last year. Mayor’s Report The mayor will be attending a meeting regarding the New York State Tax Code Update with a focus on the new Charitable Gifts Reserve Fund. Town/Village Engineer Niles Pierson and Burrell attended an Emergency Management Training in Little Valley and it has been deemed the Village Emergency Management Plan (EMP) needs to be updated. Burrell also attended a meeting with Civil Service in regard to the town/village code enforcement officer potentially needing to take the Civil Service test. In addition, Burrell attended two workshops at Holiday Valley, one regarding

the DRI and another on community visioning. Engineering Report Bryan Clark passed Class B Water School. During a pre-construction meeting for the Monroe Street project, some concerns came up. The contractor who bid on the project did not include the exposed aggregate and the new quote is over budget. There was discussion on solutions but the board asked Pierson to continue to look into a solution as the trees that have already been purchased need to be planted soon. The UV Bank Restoration at the Wastewater Treatment Plant has been fixed. Also at the WWTP, a solution has been reached with the Lagoon Master and Pierson projects a 3-4 year payback with the energy savings. The Fillmore Drainage Project plan from the county is almost complete. There was a motion to add a 7’ 5” hydraulic dumping and accept a $1,500 trade in on the purchase of the new street sweeper; a second and ayes carried. There was discussion on standardizing all vehicles in the fleet and then a motion to purchase a Ford truck with trade in; there was a second and ayes carried. Pierson is still holding an invoice from Nussbaumer & Clarke regarding work that the board and Pierson feel has not been completed to satisfaction. Pierson has also found an intern for the Engineering Department and has put our a request

for proposal regarding an IT Consultant. He feels this is the biggest thing that can be done to build the department. There was a motion to accept the report; a second and ayes carried. Sidewalks The mayor asked for a plan regarding sidewalk maintenance be created. Special Events The Rock Autism Festival will be Sept. 1 at the Village Park and the line up will be announced this weekend. Old Business Regarding the Short Term Rental Laws, Village Attorney Kathleen Moriarty is still working on the draft and suggested putting it in zoning not local law. Concerns have been brought up regarding the long term maintenance of the Ski Tree that was installed this winter in front of the 1887 building. Lowes states, “We have to have a plan,” and is working on a solution that is best for a sustaining budget. Village Flushing will begin on June 17. New Business Burrell has asked Moriarty to go through the local laws, remove any duplicates, cross check that they have all been filed with the state. The aim is to be able to digitize and have the laws made searchable for the village website. They next meeting of the Ellicottville Village Board will be held at 6 p.m. July 9 at the Village Hall.

Catt. Co. Museums to Open Doors Saturday

By Rick Miller

Most museums in the county are opening their doors Saturday for Cattaraugus County Museum Day. Fifteen different museum sites have joined in the 2018 Museum Day, part of the New York State Path Through History Weekend. Jacqueline Gardner, a county tourism assistant who helps publicize Museum Day for a variety of county museums, said the goal is to make it easy for the public to visit local museums. “Local history is very important,” Gardner said Monday. “It’s all around us. Museums help you see the bigger picture of our past. It’s really interesting to see how local families contributed” in the past in these museum exhibits. The Cattaraugus County Historical Advisory Committee meets monthly in Little Valley. The county Department of Economic Development, Planning and Tourism helps with publicity and resources, including producing pamphlets on the Underground Railroad in Cattaraugus County and other Paths Through History. In the past, Museum Day was known as the Museum Crawl, Gardner said. Museum Day is an opportunity for museums to not only attract new visitors, but to recruit new members and volunteers, Gardner said. “It gives you a sense of community.” The Ischua Valley Historical Society will have two museums in this Saturday’s Museum Day: The Miner’s Cabin at 9 Pine St., in the village of Franklinville, while the Howe-Prescott Pioneer House on Route 98 will be open from 1 to 4 p.m. Maggie Fredrickson, the Franklinville village historian and member of the Ischua Valley Historical Society, said a special contest is planned to test people’s knowledge of unusual items from the late 1800s and early 1900s. “We’re going to ask visitors to try and identify them and what they were probably used for,” she said, noting that prizes will be given. Several other museums have developed their own question-and-answer programs with some of their exhibits. The museums have free admission, but donations are accepted. Additional Cattaraugus County historical information and maps are available by going online to Participating museums include: • Allegany Area Historical Association Museum, 25 N. Second St. Allegany.

COMMUNITY Public Discussion Dominates Second WVCS Budget Presentation By Rich Place

The West Valley School Board of Education hosted another budget hearing Monday night as it prepares to send the same proposed 2018-19 school budget, as well as a bus proposition, to voters who turned down the spending plan in mid-May. The board opted to allow residents to vote June 19, the date mandated by the state for school districts to put failed budgets up for a revote, on the $9.8 million spending plan that includes a 2 percent increase in the tax levy. A second failure of the budget would force adoption of a contingency budget that does not have an increase in the tax levy for the 2018-19 school year. The district last operated under contingency in 2016-17, when the board chose to immediately adopt a contingency plan instead of putting the failed budget up for a re-vote. The presentation on Monday consisted of roughly a half hour budget presentation that focused not only on economics with school business executive Ann O’Brien but also on academic program highlights with school principal Daniel Amodeo. The prepared remarks and slideshow by the two school officials was followed by roughly an hour of public comment amongst school officials, the board and members of the public. Topics included collegelevel course offerings, an explanation of district reserves, spending per pupil and administrative costs before culminating on the subject of annexation and the study that will be presented next week. Norbert Warnes, a district taxpayer, questioned whether the district will be able to finance the next steps

in a potential annexation study under a contingency budget. Dr. William Silky of education consultants Castallo & Silky LLC is expected to report on the results of a pre-annexation study with the Ellicottville and Springville-Griffith Institute school districts during a special meeting on June 21. O’Brien noted it was advised by school attorneys a consultant could not be hired to do a study under a contingency spending plan without risk of being challenged. “Under a contingency budget you are restricted by the guidelines of the state of New York,” she said. “Basically the board would determine whether or not an expense was a contingent expense and somebody, anybody, could challenge that.” “And the preponderance was, we would lose,” added school board president Stephen Kowalski. Significant time during a public question-and-answer session was spent on the school’s administrative costs, which make up about 12 percent of the overall budget, and Warnes asked what the board was doing to reduce that figure. “We were constantly looking this budget that has been put out,” said Kowalski, “it is the best — we feel — the best effort of working together as a board and the administration to continue to offer to these young people what we’ve done.” The district’s cost per pupil was also challenged and a question was asked to district officials and the board about whether a plan was in place to reduce the amount. “It’s not a point, unfortunately, that has one answer,” Kowalski said.

“We are obviously trying to build some interest and we’d really like to get more students. Everybody does.” He also noted incoming board members have “some fabulous ideas” but it has to be seen how they can put into a system that has many state mandates and regulations. “And you also need to remember options are there, we look at all of them, but you can’t just jump at all of them,” Kowalski added. “We are limited by what we can do and where we can go, and please come next Thursday (to the pre-annexation study presentation).” The budget and bus proposition revote will be held from noon to 9 p.m. Tuesday, June 19 in the school gymnasium. On the ballot will be the proposed 2018-19 budget with the 2 percent tax increase that is within the tax cap, O’Brien said, as well as a proposition to purchase a 22-passenger school bus at a cost of $53,232, which has a local share of $11,818 after state aid. “The very same day that we voted (on May 15) this bus broke down on the side of the road and had to go get some transmission work done on it,” O’Brien said during her presentation. “It’s in rough shape and it’s starting to cost us money.” School superintendent Eric Lawton told the board it will not convene the night of the budget vote but will accept the results during a special meeting at 6:30 p.m. June 21 prior to the pre-annexation study presentation scheduled for 7 p.m. that night. The board reminded the public it is invited to the preannexation meeting, hosted by Castallo & Silky LLC. The meeting will take place in the school auditorium.

How Burrowing Wildlife Can Damage Your Lawn

Soft, spongy lawns may be indicative of various problems underfoot that occur relatively sight unseen. Barring a septic system backup or considerable flooding, insects or animals may be to blame. In many areas, burrowing wildlife can wreak havoc on landscapes. Identifying which critter is causing the damage helps homeowners develop the most effective solutions to issues involving wildlife. Moles Moles will spend much of their lives underground, rarely coming up to the surface. They spend their days digging long tunnels from their dens in search of grubs, earthworms and tuber plants all year long. Moles can be gray, black, brown, or gold and will be between six and eight inches in length. Their wide front feet are designed for excavating, and moles have very small eyes and angular snouts. Many times moles are to blame for zig-zagging lines across a yard. Channels are typically dug between five to eight inches below the surface of the soil, according

The tunnels are only about 1.5 inches in diameter and one may see small molehills of excavated soil in areas around the yard. Mole tunnels can be followed through the yard thanks to the appearance of elevated ridges on the surface of the soil. Voles Even though their name is similar, voles look nothing like moles. They are also known by the name meadow mice and look more like mice than they do moles or gophers. Voles are small as well and primarily feed on foliage and plant roots. It can take a trained eye to differentiate between holes created by moles and voles, but foliage eaten

around an entry or exit hole suggests the presence of voles. Unlike moles, voles don’t create soil masses on the surfaces of landscapes, which can make recognizing infestations more difficult. Groundhogs, gophers, prairie dogs Groundhogs, gophers and prairie dogs also are burrowing rodents. These rodents are larger than moles and voles. Groundhogs, also known as woodchucks, are the largest of the group, followed by prairie dogs and gophers. Prairie dogs tend to be more social than groundhogs and gophers and may be seen congregating together. Gophers tend to stay below ground and will pull food into their burrows, says the Florida-based A Wildlife

Groundhogs’ size and desire to forage and eat their fill above-ground often make them easy to spot.

In the instance of moles, using a grub-killer can diminish their numbers. Wire mesh fences buried underground can deter digging into garden beds. Homeowners who are

vigilant about disrupting burrows and tunnels may encourage rodents to relocate. If burrowing wildlife prove problematic, homeowners can work with professional exterminators to assess the situation.

The 2018 Raccoon Rally is on our doorsteps featuring the longest running Mountain Bike Race in the region in the demanding mountains of the Allegany National Forest. Allegany State Park plays host to one of the longest standing traditions in cycling in Western New York drawing competitors from several surrounding states. The Raccoon Rally offers cyclists and families one of the most picturesque and memorable quad busting days of cycling action annually. Over the years, the Rally continues to evolve delivering a cycling tradition to thousands of participants. Thank you for supporting this long standing event and we look forward to another great 2018! For 2018 Sunday’s Cross Country Mountain Bike Race once again blasts off and finishes at the top of the mountain/ Summit area in Red House at 10 a.m. utilizing most of the Art Roscoe Trail System and Thunder Run Singletrack. Novice, Beginner, Sport & Expert classes

battle it out for awards and prizes in several age groups. There’s a course for every level of mountain biker at the Raccoon Rally. First 250 entrants receive a Raccoon Rally Finishers Keychain!

Registration/number pickup opens at 8am at the Summit Area warming hut. Rain or shine. For 2018 there will not be a road event, as focusing on Sunday’s XC races are the priority for this year.
