Ridesharing Arrives in Buffalo, Ellicottville See Summer of Music page 3

By Elizabeth Riggs

Ridesharing is finally here! And that means in the Southtowns, too. After a bill allowing ridesharing was approved as part of the state budget in April, ridesharing officially commenced in WNY on June 29. And lucky for the Southtowns, we’re not just talking about the city of Buffalo. The benefits spread to Ellicottville, too! So, what are Uber or Lyft to begin with? They’re smartphone apps that provide ondemand car services that allow users to request private drivers for wherever they may feel like going. The apps use your location to find the nearest driver to you, who will pick you up and drive you to your destination. Interested? It couldn’t be easier to get in on the fun! Just download the Uber or Lyft apps on your smartphone and follow the steps to create accounts. Provide your name,

The area outdoor music scene in in full swing. Grab your lawn chairs, kick off those flip flops and get ready to dance to the music! Griffis Sculpture Park Benefit Concert This Sunday, head to a fantastic benefit concert for Griffis Sculpture Park. In 1991, over 6,000 people attended a benefit concert for the park hosted by alternative rockers 10,000 Maniacs. It was a legendary day that is etched in Western New York music history. Twenty-six years later, 10,000 Maniacs will make a highly anticipated return to the United States’ largest sculpture park on Sunday, July 16, 2017 at 2 p.m. for a full-performance of their album “In My Tribe,” which celebrated its 30th anniversary celebration this year. 10,000 Maniacs “In My Tribe” was named by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the “Top 100 Albums of the 1980s.” 10,000 Maniacs, from Jamestown, recently celebrated their 35th anniversary and continues to progress with new material and touring. The band rose to stardom in the 1980s, with their breakout hit album “In My Tribe.” The albums “Blind Man’s Zoo” and “Our Time in Eden” solidified them as one of the country’s biggest acts with sold out shows, major media appearances, and millions of albums sold. The departure of singer Natalie Merchant in 1993, presented the band new beginnings with singer and viola player Mary Ramsey in 1994. What followed was the 10,000 Maniacs tradition of creating innovative alternative rock with multiple albums and international touring that continues to this day. In the past four years, the band has release three new recordings “Music from the Motion Picture,” “Twice Told Tales”

Village Board Adopts Code of Ethics By Jennie Acklin

Short-term rentals was the first topic discussed at the Monday, July 10 meeting of the Ellicottville Village Board. Steve Frank has one of seven permits issued by the Village, and doesn’t feel the $200 annual permit fee is fair, when so many other homes are rented out on a short-term (less than 30 days) basis without a permit. “I’m tired of paying the $200 when everyone else in the village doesn’t pay the fee,” said Frank. Currently, the village law not only prohibits short-term rentals, but also requires owners

contact information, location and payment information, and when you’re ready to venture out, enter your desired destination. Uber and Lyft both use GPS to figure out the rider’s destination, and locate a driver nearest you to pick you up. Uber offers the opportunity to select a vehicle type, which in the Ellicottville area is limited to UberX or UberXL, which are vehicles with seating for four or six people. (In bigger areas, UberPool is also an option – allowing you to share a ride with strangers for a lower fare.) Still a little hesitant to hop in a complete stranger’s vehicle? With both apps, riders can rest assured that they are in no danger. All drivers are required to pass comprehensive background and DMV checks. The Lyft app also uses a driver rating service in which passengers rate their experience, and only the highest-rated drivers are allowed on the app, while Uber provides riders with a photo of their driver’s picture, vehicle details, and can track their arrival on a map as they wait for an added sense of safety and security. Both apps also give estimated fare costs as soon as a destination is entered, so

there are no surprises with pricing after arriving at your final destination. Further, riders can pay their fares electronically so there’s no need to worry about carrying cash. Uber and Lyft both accept credit card, Apple Pay, PayPal and other electronic payment options. Wondering how much it would cost for a night out on the town? According to the Uber website, an estimated one-way fare from Springville to Ellicottville ranges from about $28-$35. But for those who are just looking for a way to travel around, the cost would be much lower. And the apps could be game changers in places like Ellicottville—a town with a winery, brewery, distillery, and several fun bars and restaurants, but until recently, no taxi or cab services. WNY’s ridesharing movement is also helping to lift the local economy and is making waves for those on the other side of the coin – the drivers. Signing up to become a driver for Uber or Lyft is a fantastic way to make a little extra spending money, or could even be a full-time job for those looking. Uber and Lyft allows drivers to use their own cars, set their

own schedules, and get paid instantly from the apps, as long as they comply with a few specific rules and regulations. Drivers for both services are required to provide proof of driver’s license, proof of vehicle registration, proof of state vehicle inspection, and proof of personal vehicle insurance. Both apps also provide supplemental insurance benefits to drivers when they are working, at no additional cost to the driver. Lastly, both apps understandably have a few requirements for future drivers. Uber drivers are required to be 21 years of age and have a vehicle model year 2001 or newer. For added incentive to signup with either ridesharing app, Uber is also currently offering a sign-up bonus of $150, while Lyft is offering $200. So, put your arm down – there’s no need to hail a cab any longer. Download these two apps today and enjoy your local communities in an entire different way. Maybe even make a new driver or rider friend along the way! For more information on either ridesharing app, download them on your smartphone, or visit their websites: www.uber.com and www.lyft.com.

I first visited Griffis Sculpture Park about 10 years ago when my kids were little. I was part of a moms group who planned group outings and went with them, not knowing such an awesome place was such a short drive away. From that first visit, I was hooked. Early on, the Rohr Hill side was the preference, with everything pretty close to the road and parking area. My kids loved to climb the giant bug-like metal sculptures in and along the woods, and they made for the best photo opps. As the kids got older and we continued to visit all the time, we started heading to the Mill Valley side, where we could walk along the trails. At first, we’d never get much further than the pond, but the open field was and is home to my favorite mushroom sculpture. Something about it reminds me of Alice in Wonderland and we have many photos of the kids sitting on or under it. Every visit, we’d explore more and more, and eventually made it to the top of the hill by the stage and my girls’ favorite (and probably most kids’ favorite)—the castle! My kids and whatever other kids were with us would perform talent shows on the stage and I’d sit on the hill in front and applaud. As the years have gone by, we’ve been able to stay in the cabins there a few times, attended a workshop where the kids made their own kites, and continue to find new sculptures and areas of the park every time we go. This weekend, the park will host some very well-known musicians for a benefit concert. Be sure to read the article on page 1 and see you how you, too, can enjoy this area treasure!

up their best to the public al fresco. New to Art in the Park this year is “Chalk It Up!” a chalk art contest. A $5 registration fee on the day of the event will give you a 4 ft. X 4 ft. space on the paved basketball court in War Vets Park to draw your chalk masterpiece. A “Best in Show” prize will be awarded in each of two age categories Youth, ages 10 - 15 and Adult, age 16 and older. Kids up to 10 years of age can draw for free in an open area, but there is no prize for this age group. Chalk drawing begins at 10 a.m. with spaces assigned on a firstcome, first served basis. The first 28 entries will get a set of chalk provided by CCAC. Others coming later must provide their own chalk. Those participating in the contest must complete their artwork by 3 p.m. when judging begins. If it rains, the event will be cancelled. For contest rules, go to the Chalk Art Contest page of the CCAC website, www. myartscouncil.net. Taste of Olean / Art in the Park is also an opportunity to recognize some of the

artists and restaurateurs. Art in the Park is a juried exhibit and sale, so ribbons will be awarded for the Best In Show, Best New Exhibitor, and Best Presentation. Taste of Olean will also announce the recipients of this year’s Hospitality Wall of Fame awards, recognizing the individuals or businesses who have made a significant contribution to the local food service/hospitality industry. There is something for everyone at this “double header” event: get something to eat at Taste of Olean and be entertained with live performances on the stage, tour the tent galleries, talk to the artists about their work and purchase pieces directly from the artists while children play in the bounce houses or on the playground. Express your own creativity at the Chalk It Up! Chalk art contest or wander through this beautiful park of mature shade trees and relax to people watch at the many picnic tables or in the dining pavilion. This a family-friendly destination for the entire day.

and “Playing Favorites.” Joining the bill is the percussion rock group from Pittsburgh, PA, Jim Donovan & Sun King Warriors. Donovan was one of the founding members of the band Rusted Root and is nationally known wellness and percussion instructor. Acoustic performer and touring musician Tyler Smilo will open the concert. Born in Texas and raised deep in the Rustbelt of Ohio, Smilo has lived a vagabond’s lifestyle before settling in Erie, PA and taking the city’s music scene by storm. An award winning acoustic artist, Smilo’s Americana influenced folk songs are mostly autobiographical. However, the themes are easily relatable to the “everyman” and his performances both heartfelt and moving. Tickets are $20 advance, $25 day of show. Children 12 and under free. Tickets can be purchased online at www. eventbrite.com Gates for the show open at noon, with music starting at 2 p.m. The concert will feature music, activities, artists, food and beer services. Concert attendees can take in the 250 sculptures that reside throughout the trails of the park, making it the United States largest outdoor sculpture park. The events will be taking place on the top of the hill at the Mill Valley site of the park. Guests must be able to endure a 10 minute walk uphill to the festival site. There will be a shuttle service that will help attendees get to the concert area.

Jess, an award-winning songwriter, has her musical roots firmly divided between both old folk tunes and new indie music, and the result of this combination is her truly captivating writing. It has been garnering the attention of audiences in her hometown of Buffalo, New York and beyond. Drawing on life experiences, honest stories, and the city she calls home, her music is soulful and truly genuine. She will be followed by headliners Playing with Monsters. The band got its start in November of 2014. It was an idea that blossomed from Lead Singer Paul Justinger (Flipside) and Rob Baker (Metal101).

In other business, Miller mentioned that the New York state testing and curriculum schedule changed from a threeday to a two-day format. “It came as a surpise to us,” said Miller. “We knew changes to the standards were coming, but we didn’t know about the testing format. New York State keeps us on our toes as they make these changes. We have a commissioner that really seems to be willing to listen. To me this is an indication that she’s heard loud and clear that three days of testing … is a lot.” Lastly, the Board amended its free and reduced price breakfast and lunch policy in order to meet standards for determining a student’s eligibility. The breakfast prices for 2017-2018 school year are $1.15 for a complete breakfast for kindergarten through 12th grade, and $1.65 for a second breakfast.

Travel WNY: Summer Outdoor Movies

Buffalo behind the Parkside Lodge. This free movie series starts in August and is hosted by the Parkside Community Association. Schedule is as follows:

By Jennifer Weber

As with most events in Western New York in the summertime, there’s never a lack of options available for entertainment. For those who love movies, there’s nothing like a nostalgic, memory-making night under the stars at one of the area drive-in theaters. Head to the nearby Delevan Twin Drive-In, at 11771 Route 16 in Delevan, and take in a movie double header. Prices are $8 for adults, $7 for seniors, $5 for kids ages 4-12 and free for 3 and under.

The ticket office opens at 7 p.m. during the week and at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. You will want to get there early (and enjoy a round at their miniature golf course) to avoid the long lines closer to movie time. Midnight movie tickets are available 30 minutes before show time and are only $6. In addition to new blockbuster movies, the Transit Drive-In hosts the very popular Retro Movie Tuesday series (schedule below). For more information visit www.transitdrivein.com.

Marvin “Joe” Curry Veterans Pow Wow July 14-16

Dance, drum competitions highlight celebration of Native culture A nationwide and international audience will once again convene in Salamanca for one of the most grand and enthusiastic celebrations of Native American culture. The 2017 Marvin “Joe” Curry Veterans Pow Wow will take place at Veterans Park from Friday, July 14 – Sunday, July 16. The annual three-day event will feature a series of exhilarating dance and drum competitions, including what is billed as North America’s biggest Smoke Dance contest, with competitors coming from across the United States and Canada. Over $100,000 in prize money will be awarded during the Pow Wow. The Pow Wow is named in honor of Marvin “Joe” Curry, a member of the Seneca Nation of Indians’ Snipe Clan, who led a long and distinguished career of military service in the United States Navy. Curry served two tours of duty in the Korean War and also served in the Vietnam War. In all, he served on eight warships, including the U.S.S. Little Rock during his military

career. After completing his military service as a Chief Warrant Officer in the 1970s, Curry served as ship superintendent of the Buffalo & Erie County Naval and Military Park for several years before retiring in 1997. He was a strong advocate of veterans’ causes who served the United States and the Seneca Nation of Indians with pride and valor throughout his life. Curry passed away in 2010. “In bringing this annual celebration to our Allegany Territory each year, we honor our culture, our veterans, including the memory of Joe Curry, and the spirit of community that exists across Indian Country,” said Seneca Nation Councillor Rick Jemison, chairman of this year’s Pow Wow committee. The Marvin “Joe” Curry Veterans Pow Wow is being sponsored by the Seneca Nation of Indians, Seneca Nation Veterans Iroquois Post #1587, Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino, and local businesses.

who rent their homes for more than 30 days to obtain an annual permit. They also must have an annual inspection by the village code enforcement officer to check smoke detectors, safety issues and set occupancy maximums. Few village property owners are aware of the law, however, and rent for a day or weekend or week, and often rent to far larger groups than should safely occupy a home. Additionally, no new permits have been issued since 2005, and they don’t transfer with the property. The board discussed waiving the permit fee, and a motion was made and approved to suspend the $200 fee while continuing to require property owners to obtain a rental permit, until such time that the Village board revises the language of the rental permit law. Justice Court Audit Village Judge Jack Rogan addressed the board next about whether or not an outside accounting firm audit was required, versus having the audit completed internally. The state auditor informed Rogan that, “It is not necessary to have an outside audit. The required annual audit may be done by themselves.” In 2016, Rogan asked board member Patra Lowes to complete the audit, and it was presented to the board in July/August 2016. Mayor Burrell refused the paperwork, stating that he wanted an outside audit, according to Lowes. The minutes from July 11, 2016 reported that the court audit report was tabled. Rogan continued to raise the question of why an outside audit was required. “Why do we need to spend the taxpayers’ money?” he asked. The village court has now received letters that the audit

report is delinquent, and Rogan wanted to know why this hasn’t been addressed. Board member Spencer Murray volunteered to work with Rogan and Lowes to produce monthly audits, and complete the 2016 annual audit report. The board approved, and thanked Murray for his willingness to take on the project. Got Grass? Got Mud? The continuing issue of village sidewalks/grass areas was brought up again. Many patches of grass between the sidewalks and streets have deteriorated into muddy strips. Lowes met with the Alley Katz about coming up with a plan, and will be ready to present the final suggestions and drawings as soon as possible. A pilot test area on Monroe Street, between Hughey Alley and Washington Street, has been proposed, where all options of pavers, grass combined with hosta plantings, to a wider sidewalk will be considered. The board requested a possible on-site special meeting for July 24. New Crosswalk Murray asked the board to consider the need of a crosswalk sign and a painted crosswalk in the street for the pedestrian traffic between the Wingate Hotel and Finnerty’s Pub. The possibility of adding a few parking spots in front of Finnerty’s was also mentioned. Village DPW will visit the site with Mayor Burrell, and determine the next steps to be taken. Cattaraugus County Youth Baseball Project In the April 2017 meeting of the Cattaraugus County Board of Legislators, $600,000 was granted to the Olean Business Development Corp. for “repair, maintenance and upgrade of youth baseball fields in the towns of Allegany,

Ellicottville, Franklinville and Portville, and the cities of Olean and Salamanca, designated for tournament play.” Additionally, $50,000 will be allocated for other youth baseball fields located within Cattaraugus County. The Village Board approved the proposed resolution to participate in the project, and will have the contract reviewed and returned to Catt. Co. this week. Town/Village Engineer Resolutions to approve a Town/Village Engineer were made, and included a job description for the position (and a salary range of $80,000 - $120,000 to be shared by the Town of Ellicottville and Village of Ellicottville), approval for the Town to hire an engineer and to enter into a shared agreement with the Village, and establishing an engineering office (a $400,000 grant will be applied for to cover hardware equipment and software for the potential new office, requiring a 10 percent local share.) Code of Ethics Vote Held At the June 2017 regular meeting of the Village board, a public hearing was held on the proposed Code of Ethics. New York State mandates that all municipalities adopt a CoE, and the Village has not complied up to this point. A discussion followed, eventually resulting in Board member Greg Capelli making a motion that the Board take a vote to adopt the CoE as presented in the June public hearing. The vote was taken as follows: Joe DiPasquale YES, Greg Capelli YES, Patra Lowes YES, Spencer Murray YES, John Burrell NO. The next regular meeting of the Village board will be held on Monday, August 7 at 6 p.m.

Prevent Injuries with Exercise

By Kim Duke, NETA & AAFA Certified Trainer

Exercise offers a wealth of benefits. When you exercise, you are giving your body that much-needed ability to move and burn calories, increase muscle mass and rev up your metabolism. And whether you want to believe it or not, exercise actually energizes you. But, one of the greatest benefits of consistent exercise is injury prevention. No matter what age you are, studies have proven over and over that an exercise program that includes cardio, strength training and stretching will not only help to strengthen you, but stabilize you as well. There are two classes of injuries: traumatic and cumulative. Traumatic injuries

are those accidents that happen in sport or daily life, such as rolling your ankle on a trail run or crashing your bike on the morning commute. Cumulative injuries relate to tissue damage that occurs over time as a result of repetitive strain. These types of injuries creep up and may be a function of poor posture, faulty movement patterns, or improper training. The best practice for preventing injury is General Physical Preparedness (GPP). GPP training is the first concept to understand when talking about injury prevention, especially for trauma. It means maintaining a baseline of fitness so that you can respond to physical challenges without harm. The following list has the five main GPP areas you need to improve: 1. Flexibility: Ensure that all major joints, including your spine, have full range of motion and sufficient muscle length. 2. Strength: Keep all large muscles and surrounding stabilizers conditioned and ready to react at a moment’s notice. 3. Agility

What is your reaction time and general coordination like? If properly honed, you can avoid spilling your bike as you swerve to avoid a pedestrian. Run an agility ladder or tire array twice a month minimally. 4. Balance Can you stay vertical over uneven terrain or when carrying an awkwardly shaped object? Single leg medicine ball tosses with a partner are a great balance challenge. Do three sets x 60-seconds on each leg. 5. Power: Do you have the speed to move out of harm’s way in a hurry? Better hope so if you need to dodge a vehicle while on your morning run. A burpee plus a 15-yard sprint is an excellent combo for power generation. Do five in a row at the end of your next workout. Combining these five training techniques will go beyond being beneficial for injury prevention. These techniques will also create a solid and strong athlete. If by chance you are reading this article and are presently injured or rehabbing from an injury, then you’ll want to read my next article!

Emerling Ford Receives Ford’s President’s Award For the 20th Consecutive Year

By Alicia Dziak

Springville’s Emerling Ford has recently won the Ford Motor Company President’s Award for a 20th consecutive year. No other Ford dealership in New York State can make that claim, and only two other dealerships in the entire nation can match it. The dealership received the award based on the excellent sales and service experience it provides to Ford customers. The winning score is based on customer feedback, submitted online or through surveys. “I am proud and excited that the dealership received Ford’s President’s Award,” says Carl Emerling, President of Emerling Ford. “Everyone on the staff works diligently

and more importantly, together as a team to deliver a superior customer experience. It is gratifying to know that our customers feel comfortable doing business at the dealership and their responses to Ford helped us earn this recognition. Everyone at Emerling Ford realizes how important it is to take care of the customer, and work toward that common goal.” Emerling attributes this award to the 86-person staff . “Our employees care about our customers and we take care of our customers,” he said, adding that it’s not any one thing, but a general attitude of treating them well. “We treat people fairly and follow up on commitments,”

he noted. “It’s mainly personal attention.” Emerling also attributes much of this accomplishment to General Manager John Woodruff. “John’s leadership has a lot to do with our success,” Emerling noted. “He makes sure everyone is taken care of.” The President’s Award, combined with the high amount of repeat/referral business they do, is a nod to the dealership’s sales, service, collision and parts departments. Emerling Ford is located at 150 S Cascade Drive in Springville. For more info, visit www.emerlingford.com.

Griffis Sculpture Park Hosts 10,000 Maniacs This Weekend

Progress On Heritage Park, Franklin Street

By Alicia Dziak

Griffis Sculpture Park is truly one of the hidden gems of WNY. If you’ve never been there before, this will become apparent as you head up and down rural roads to get there. While the park is located only a short distance off Route 219 between Springville and Ellicottville, at 6902 Mill Valley Road in East Otto, upon arrival, you feel miles from modern civilization. Open May through October, the park features over 250 large scale sculptures dispersed through miles of hiking trails. Each sculpture was placed with the natural setting in mind, creating

By Derek M. Otto

a truly unique experience between art and nature. But a memorable day trip is not the only reason to visit the park. They also offer special events throughout the season. History repeats itself at Griffis Sculpture Park this weekend when the 10,000

Maniacs return for a sure-tobe-epic benefit concert. In 1991, over 6,000 people attended a benefit concert for the park hosted by alternative rockers 10,000 Maniacs. It was a legendary day that is etched in Western New York music See Griffis page 6

Ridesharing Arrives in WNY

By Elizabeth Riggs

Ridesharing is finally here! And that means in the Southtowns, too. After a bill allowing ridesharing was approved as part of the state budget in April, ridesharing officially commenced in WNY on June 29. And lucky for the Southtowns, we’re not just talking about the city of

Buffalo. The benefits spread to Springville, too! So, what are Uber or Lyft to begin with? They’re smartphone apps that provide on-demand car services that allow users to request private drivers for wherever they may feel like going. The apps use your location to find the nearest driver to you, who will pick you up and drive you to

your destination. Interested? It couldn’t be easier to get in on the fun! Just download the Uber or Lyft apps on your smartphone and follow the steps to create accounts. Provide your name, contact information, location and payment information, and when you’re ready to venture out, enter your desired destination. Uber and Lyft both use GPS to figure out the rider’s destination, and locate a driver nearest you to pick you up. Uber offers the opportunity to select a vehicle type, which in the Springville area is limited to UberX or UberXL, which are vehicles with seating for four or six people. (In bigger areas, UberPool is also an option – allowing you to share a ride with strangers for a lower fare.)

BBQ Fest and Softball to Benefit Boys & Girls Club

By Alicia Dziak

On Saturday, Aug. 12, join friends old and new at the first annual BBQ Fest & Softball Tournament to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Springville. The Community Park will play host to this event, which will feature food and fun! “Due to the lack of snowfall for our 13th Annual Snowshoe Softball Tournament this past winter, the Boys & Girls Club needed to find an alternative fundraiser,” said Andy Bobseine, director of the Boys & Girls Club of Springville. “ The BBQ event was added to bring more spectators to the

softball tournament.” Local WNY BBQ vendors Jake and the Fatman, Rebel Yell BBQ and Babz BBQ will be selling their award-winning

items from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The $10 ticket gives you 10 individual tickets to purchase a BBQ sandwich, brisket or See Boys & Girls Club page 3

The regular meeting of the village of Springville was held on Monday, July 10. Trustees Robert Moriarty, Terry Skelton and Officer-in-Charge of the Springville Police were not present. In the village administrator’s report, Liz Melock asked the board to approve $2,420 in budget transfers to close out the fiscal year ending June 30. She asked the board to approve

the advertising for bids for the CDBG project that close on Aug. 7 at 2 p.m. The project is for water main replacement on Franklin and Church Streets. Melock then asked the board to approve the preliminary spending for the TAP grant. TAP grant monies will be used to better improve pedestrian and bicycle traffic in the village between parks and schools. Eighty percent of the grant is

Street and downtown areas. Houses are a bit different than a business district, and in Springville, some of the houses were once part of the business district. By that, I mean that See A Look Back page 7

Shakespeare in Delaware Park: The Merry Wives of Windsor and Macbeth Shakespeare in Delaware Park, located at Shakespeare Hill, 199 Lincoln Parkway, Buffalo is one of the biggest free outdoor Shakespeare festivals in the country and has been a beloved addition to the Western New York summer theater landscape for the last 42 years.

Free performances take place Tuesdays through Sundays at 7:30 p.m. You will definitely want to get there early, not just for a great spot on the hill (chairs are welcome, but near the top only; blankets allowed near the stage) but also to ensure a good parking spot nearby.

For more info, visit www. shakespeareindelawarepark. org. If your idea of outdoor theater is a little less high-brow and a little more historical beer drinking while riding on a bus, how about trying out the Double Decker Bus-Murder Mystery Tour: Death at Doug’s Dive. Performances begin on Saturday, July 15 and take place every Saturday through the end of August at Flying Bison Brewery, located at 840 Seneca Street. Tickets are $30 and includes the murder mystery adventure on a double decker bus that stops at three or more historic taverns in Buffalo. “During this historically accurate mystery, you’ll come to know Doug, the owner of Buffalo’s most notorious waterfront dive. Set in the year 1866, Buffalo’s colorful

waterfront red light district comes alive–following Doug’s death! This is a fully interactive evening of sleuthing.  You see the crime scene, you interview the witnesses, and you collect clues in order to solve this mystery based upon true events in Buffalo’s history.” For more information, visit www.buffalodoubledeckerbus. com.

This year the festival runs from Thursday, July 27 through Sunday, Aug. 10. All events and exhibits are FREE of charge and there are sure to be several outdoor theater performances included in the 2017 schedule which will be posted online before the end of the month.

Letter from the Editor

I first visited Griffis Sculpture Park about 10 years ago when my kids were little. I was part of a moms group who planned group outings and went with them, not knowing such an awesome place was such a short drive away. From that first visit, I was hooked. Early on, the Rohr Hill side was the preference, with everything pretty close to the road and parking area. My kids loved to climb the giant bug-like metal scultpures in and along the woods, and they made for the best photo opps. As the kids got older and we continued to visit all the time, we started heading to the Mill Valley side, where we could walk along the trails. At first, we’d never get much further than the pond, but the open field was and is home to my favorite mushroom sculpture. Something about it reminds me of Alice in Wonderland and we have many photos of the kids sitting on or under it. Every visit, we’d explore more and more, and eventually made it to the top of the hill by the stage and my girls’ favorite (and probably most kids’ favorite)—the castle! My kids and whatever other kids were with us would perform talent shows on the stage and I’d sit on the hill in front and applaud. As the years have gone by, we’ve been able to stay in the cabins there a few times, attended a workshop where the kids made their own kites, and continue to find new sculptures and areas of the park every time we go. This weekend, the park will host some very well-known musicians for a benefit concert. Be sure to read the article on page 1 and see you how you, too, can enjoy this area treasure! - Alicia Dziak, Editor, Springville Times and Ellicottville Times

Emerling Ford Receives Ford’s President’s Award For the 20th Consecutive Year

By Alicia Dziak

Springville’s Emerling Ford has recently won the Ford Motor Company President’s Award for a 20th consecutive year. No other Ford dealership in New York State can make that claim, and only two other dealerships in the entire nation can match it. The dealership received the award based on the excellent sales and service experience it provides to Ford customers. The winning score is based on customer feedback, submitted online or through surveys. “I am proud and excited that the dealership received Ford’s President’s Award,” says Carl Emerling, President of Emerling Ford. “Everyone

on the staff works diligently and more importantly, together as a team to deliver a superior customer experience. It is gratifying to know that our customers feel comfortable doing business at the dealership and their responses to Ford helped us earn this recognition. Everyone at Emerling Ford realizes how important it is to take care of the customer, and work toward that common goal.” Emerling attributes this award to the 86-person staff . “Our employees care about our customers and we take care of our customers,” he said, adding that it’s not any one thing, but a general attitude of treating them well.

“We treat people fairly and follow up on commitments,” he noted. “It’s mainly personal attention.” Emerling also attributes much of this accomplishment to General Manager John Woodruff. “John’s leadership has a lot to do with our success,” Emerling noted. “He makes sure everyone is taken care of.” The President’s Award, combined with the high amount of repeat/referral business they do, is a nod to the dealership’s sales, service, collision and parts departments. Emerling Ford is located at 150 S Cascade Drive in Springville. For more info, visit www.emerlingford.com.

To the editor: I wanted to give a public “thanks” to the organizations and individuals that have made the latest set of local Little Free Libraries possible in the Greater Springville area. Thanks to a generous grant from the Springville-Griffith Community Education Foundation, free book exchanges are now located at Colden Elementary School, the Boys and Girls Club of Springville, and the Rail to Trails park on Main Street. The village of Springville also installed a Little Free Library at Heritage Park with the support and encouragement of Mayor Bill Krebs, Administrator Liz Melock and Superintendent of Public Works Ken Kostowniak. They were enthusiastic and helpful in getting these set up and adding another amenity for residents of and visitors to our community. These free book and magazine exchanges that are open to all. If you have a supply to donate that will not fit in one of these locations, please contact me at karamariek@gmail.com. Do you want to help with “stewarding” these libraries or learn about starting your own? Contact me or visit littlefreelibrary. org. - Kara Kane

Thanks to the efforts of the Cordelian Club, the Bertrand Chaffee Hospital Foundation received a gift that will fund equipment in the Emergency Department. The purchase of an ocular tonometer, which measures eye pressure, and additional equipment for the ED will proceed because of this donation. Each year, the Cordelian Club coordinates a party like no other in town. This year’s theme was a tribute to Prince, and it continued a long tradition of dances that have changed with the times but have always supported the hospital.

Hall & Parker Exhibit at SCA

Linda Hall and Ann Parker will be coming together to present a joint exhibit, Hometowns & Endpapers, in the Harold L. Olmsted Gallery at Springville Center for the Arts. This show incorporates pieces from Hall’s Hometowns of WNY collection and Parker’s Endpapers collection featuring her photography, and runs from Saturday, July 22 through Saturday, Aug. 19. Linda Hall, President of East Aurora Arts Society, grew up in Western New York. She gets her inspiration from the Southtowns Scenic Byway area. With over 15 paintings in her collection, Hall uses a variety of shapes and colors to give the viewer a different perspective of the towns they live in and travel to. Hall uses acrylic paints on board and canvas. Ann Parker has been a photographer for over 30 years. She took a liking to endpapers, patterned pages at the front and back of books. After taking pictures of them, she manipulates them, using threedimensional shapes and objects to create something new and original. Parker’s endpapers are printed and mounted on rigid gator board or metal.

provided with Federal Funds and the other twenty percent comes from the Village. Melock asked the board to approve the resignation for the caretaker, Lester Dunn. The job is a part-time job and has been posted on the village website. She reported two correction petitions for corrections on tax bills. The board moved to approve the annual village wide garage sale Aug. 2-5. Participants are asked to get a garage sale permit and register at the Trading Post. A small donation is asked for being put on the map handed out to people. Superintendent of Public Works Ken Kostnowiak reported that chipping and oiling of village streets was rescheduled for July 11 and 12. Residents on streets being chipped were notified door to door. Work on the Heritage Park is moving along, restrooms are installed and details of maintenance are being vetted out. Work on the crosswalks along Franklin Street is about eighty percent complete. He asked the board to approve the hiring of Amanda Reichert to replace another summer hire that is leaving. Kostnowiak noted that the parking lot at 65 Franklin Street will repaved on Thursday, July 13. In Nick Budney’s absence, Liz Melock read the police

report. Springville PD responded to 492 calls with 49 patrol shifts in June. Policing has gone up 53 percent since the same time last year. Erie County Sheriffs office responded to 485 calls in June. David Klenk reported that the fire company has been busy and that standing by for fireworks was one of their added duties for the month of July. They will be on standby for fireworks at the All Class Reunion July 21 at Fireman’s Park. The first annual Fire department car show will be held at Fireman’s Park on July 29. Alan Chamberlain reported that there were 155 emergency calls at the control center. In new business, Seth Wochensky of the Springville Center of the Arts presented two resolutions to the board for grant applications. The applications were for a grant to NYS Parks for the acquisition of the former Baptist parsonage on Buffalo Street. The house and property are currently used for special events at the SCA. The other grant is a larger grant that will allow for the final stages of the renovations of the former Baptist Church. The next would be the construction of the accessible entrance and work on the theater space. Mayor Krebs notified the board that David Guadagna submitted a letter of

Still a little hesitant to hop in a complete stranger’s vehicle? With both apps, riders can rest assured that they are in no danger. All drivers are required to pass comprehensive background and DMV checks. The Lyft app also uses a driver rating service in which passengers rate their experience, and only the highest-rated drivers are allowed on the app, while Uber provides riders with a photo of their driver’s picture, vehicle details, and can track their arrival on a map as they wait for an added sense of safety and security. Both apps also give estimated fare costs as soon as a destination is entered, so there are no surprises with pricing after arriving at your final destination. Further, riders can pay their fares electronically so there’s no need to worry about carrying cash. Uber and Lyft both accept credit cards, Apple Pay, PayPal and other electronic payment options. Wondering how much it would cost for a night out on the town? According to the Uber website, an estimated

one-way fare from Springville to Ellicottville ranges from about $28-$35. But for those who are just looking for a way to travel around, the cost would be much lower. And the apps could be game changers in places like nearby Ellicottville—a town with a winery, brewery, distillery, and several fun bars and restaurants, but until recently, no taxi or cab services. WNY’s ridesharing movement is also helping to lift the local economy and is making waves for those on the other side of the coin – the drivers. Signing up to become a driver for Uber or Lyft is a fantastic way to make a little extra spending money, or could even be a full-time job for those looking. Uber and Lyft allows drivers use their own cars, set their own schedules, and get paid instantly from the apps, as long as they comply with a few specific rules and regulations. Drivers for both services are required to provide proof of driver’s license, proof of vehicle registration, proof

resignation on the Zoning Board of Appeals. At this time, the village has two vacancies on the board. During Trustee reports, Alan Chamberlain stated that he was impressed at the turnout at the master plan for the Town of Concord on June 27. He noted he was happy with the millings on the Rail to Trails trail. The millings make traveling the trail much easier. Nils Wikman was impressed with the process of the archeologist focusing on the new Emerling Dealership on Cascade Drive. Krebs noted that Erie County will be having meetings on the tax saving plan. The plan is to combine services with different municipalities in a way to reduce spending by sharing. County Executive Mark Poloncarz will present how to consolidate different services. There will be meeting at ECC South on July 19 at 5:30 p.m. He also noted that Charter Communications has approached the village to start negotiating for a cable franchise in the village. He noted that the current contract doesn’t end until May 2020. The next meeting of the Village Board is scheduled for Aug. 14 at 7 p.m., 65 Franklin Street.

of state vehicle inspection, and proof of personal vehicle insurance. Both apps also provide supplemental insurance benefits to drivers when they are working, at no additional cost to the driver. Lastly, both apps understandably have a few requirements for future drivers. Uber drivers are required to be 21 years of age and have a vehicle model year 2001 or newer. For added incentive to signup with either ridesharing app, Uber is also currently offering a sign-up bonus of $150, while Lyft is offering $200. So, put your arm down – there’s no need to hail a cab any longer. Download these two apps today and enjoy your local communities in an entire different way. Maybe even make a new driver or rider friend along the way! For more information on either ridesharing app, download them on your smartphone, or visit their websites: www.uber.com and www.lyft.com.

If you’re one of the many who considers Allegany State Park (ASP) your home away from home, summer is a great time to revisit all your favorite places and activities, as well as discover new ones. Head to the largest of New York State’s parks and enjoy 65,000 sprawling acres of outdoor fun. While cabins must be rented for a minimum of seven nights this time of year, camp sites can be reserved for fewer, and there are many to choose from. To check out what’s available, visit www.reserveamerica. com. You can also head to the park for the day. ASP’s naturalist-led daily programs make learning fun. Enjoy nature walks and scavenger hunts, learn about plants and animals and discover cool places in the park. Ten new programs have been introduced this year, like Wetland Walks, Night Hikes and Team Challenge Games. For more info, visit www.facebook.com/ alleganystatepark or pick up the schedule at either rental office inside the park. Through mid-July, Allegany State Park’s Environmental Education Department will offer hikes to view the rare Synchronous Fireflies – once thought to exist in only a handful of places in the world. The Photinus Carolinus species, also known as the Synchronous Firefly, flashes only from late June to midJuly. In 2012, the Firefly International Research and Education Team came to study the local firefly species, and confirmed its existence in the Branch Creek area of Allegheny National Forest. After lead naturalist, Adele Wellman, and other volunteers and naturalists from Allegany State Park received the training necessary to identify the species, the park naturalists looked in similar habitats and were able to identify the Synchronous Firefly for its first confirmed sighting in New York State. For information on other programs, please check Allegany State Park’s activity schedule at www.facebook. com/alleganystatepark , or call (716) 354-9101 ext. 232.

Allegany State Park continues its series of hikes called “Third Saturday Treks.” As the name implies, these free, familyfriendly hikes will take place on the third Saturday of each month from April through October. The treks will be led by park staff and summer interns. This month’s Third Saturday Trek takes place July 15 on Bear Paw –one of the park’s newest trails.

Quaker Lake will also be the site for the annual Rock the Park celebration on July 21. Picture the scene: a beautiful summer evening in Allegany State Park, great live music -and you smack in the middle of it! It can all be yours to enjoy at Allegany State Park’s 6th annual Rock the Park! This year’s event takes place on July 21 at the Quaker Beach area. The day kicks off at 3 p.m. with a local vendor showcase. Various merchants and

organizations will be on hand to familiarize park patrons and local residents with the many great things that are available to them in the surrounding area. At 5 p.m., Park Naturalists will host an “Ask the Naturalist” program that will feature several interactive nature displays. At 6 p.m., it’s time to “Rock the Park” with opening act and Allegany’s own Artist in Residence, Jess Chizuk. Jess, an award-winning songwriter, has her musical roots firmly divided between both old folk tunes and new indie music, and the result of this combination is her truly captivating writing. It has been garnering the attention of audiences in her hometown of Buffalo, New York and beyond. Drawing on life experiences, honest stories, and the city she calls home, her music is soulful and truly genuine. She will be followed by headliners Playing with Monsters. The band got its start in November of 2014.It was an idea that blossomed from Lead Singer Paul Justinger (Flipside) and Rob Baker (Metal101). The idea was simple— create a band that allows all members to play what they always wanted to, whether they like the song or just the challenge of the song. Since that time the idea has taken off and the group continues to grow in popularity including playing multiple music festivals and opening for national artists like Scott Stapp of Creed! For more information, contact the Environmental Education/Recreation Department at (716) 354-9101 ext 236 or check out the park’s Facebook page. The annual Beach Party will be held at Quaker Beach on Aug. 18, with music by Keith James and Sean Patrick McGraw and Kevin McCarthy, as well as face paitning, kids’ activities and fireworks. Enjoy free outdoor movies at the Quaker General Store several nights a week. Pick up the schedule at either rental office inside the park. Of course, if it’s less scheduling you’re after, take your pick from miles of scenic hiking trails on varying terrain throughout the park. Climb Thunder Rocks, explore Little Ireland, visit the Fire Tower, go fishing in Science, Red House or Quaker Lakes, or grab a bite on the patio of the Park Restaurant. ASP is a haven for outdoor summertime fun. And since it’s just a short drive away, why not plan a trip or two or 10 there this summer? You won’t regret it!

Marvin ‘Joe’ Curry Veterans Pow Wow July 14-16 Dance, Drum Competitions Highlight Celebration Of Native Culture

A nationwide and international audience will once again convene in Salamanca for one of the most grand and enthusiastic celebrations of Native American culture. The 2017 Marvin “Joe” Curry Veterans Pow Wow will take place at Veterans Park from Friday, July 14 – Sunday, July 16. The annual three-day event will feature a series of exhilarating dance and drum competitions, including what is billed as North America’s biggest Smoke Dance contest, with competitors coming from across the United States and Canada. Over $100,000 in prize money will be awarded during the Pow Wow. The Pow Wow is named in honor of Marvin “Joe” Curry, a member of the Seneca Nation of Indians’ Snipe Clan, who led a long and distinguished career of military service in the United States Navy. Curry served two tours of duty in the Korean War and also served in the Vietnam War. In all, he served on eight warships, including the U.S.S. Little Rock during his military career. After completing his military service as a Chief Warrant Officer in the 1970s, Curry served as ship superintendent of the Buffalo & Erie County Naval and Military Park for several years before retiring in 1997. He was a strong advocate of veterans’ causes who served the United States and the Seneca Nation of Indians with pride and valor throughout his life. Curry passed away in 2010. “In bringing this annual

celebration to our Allegany Territory each year, we honor our culture, our veterans, including the memory of Joe Curry, and the spirit of community that exists across Indian Country,” said Seneca Nation Councillor Rick Jemison, chairman of this year’s Pow Wow committee. This year’s Pow Wow will feature the return of the Cultural Tent, where attendees can make authentic crafts and learn about Seneca and Native culture, including many of the different dance styles that will be featured throughout the weekend. Also making an appearance will be the newly crowned Miss Indian World 2017 Raven Swamp from the Mohawks of Kahnawake Territory in Quebec. Contests will feature several dance styles from various tribes attending the event, including our own Iroquois Smoke dance, as well as Fancy Dance, Grass Dance, Traditional Dance, and Jingle Dance. Special dance competitions will include Original Iroquois Style Women’s Shuffle Dance, Men’s Chicken Dance Special, Sweetheart Team Dance Special, and the Veterans Dance Special. In addition to the dance competitions, the

Pow Wow will also feature the Drum Contest and Hand Drum competition. On Friday, admission is $5 for all ages. Veterans and military personnel (with valid ID) and children age 4 and younger will be admitted free of charge. Grand Entry is scheduled at 7 p.m. on Friday. Grand Entry begins at Noon on Saturday and Noon on Sunday. Gates will open at 10 a.m. Winners will be announced on Sunday evening, before the conclusion of the Pow Wow. Daily admission is $10 for adults and two-day passes are available for $15. Admission for students age 5-17 and seniors age 60 and older is just $5. Native crafts, artwork, and food will be available from a wide variety of vendors, with booths opening at 5 p.m. on Friday and at 10 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. The Marvin “Joe” Curry Veterans Pow Wow is being sponsored by the Seneca Nation of Indians, Seneca Nation Veterans Iroquois Post #1587, Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino, and local businesses.

Twenty-six years later, 10,000 Maniacs will make a highly anticipated return to the United States’ largest sculpture park on Sunday, July 16 at 2 p.m. for a full-performance of their album “In My Tribe,” which celebrated its 30th anniversary celebration this year. 10,000 Maniacs “In My Tribe” was named by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the “Top 100 Albums of the 1980s.” 10,000 Maniacs, from Jamestown, recently celebrated their 35th anniversary and continues to progress with new material and touring. The band rose to stardom in the 1980s, with their breakout hit album “In My Tribe.” The albums “Blind Man’s Zoo” and “Our Time in Eden” solidified them as one of the country’s biggest acts with sold out shows, major media appearances, and millions of albums sold. The departure of singer Natalie Merchant in 1993, presented the band new beginnings with singer and viola player Mary Ramsey in 1994. What followed was the 10,000 Maniacs tradition of creating innovative alternative rock with multiple albums and international touring that continues to this day. In the past four years, the band has release three new recordings “Music from the Motion Picture,” “Twice Told Tales” and “Playing Favorites.” Joining the bill is the percussion rock group from Pittsburgh, PA, Jim Donovan & Sun King Warriors.

Concert attendees can take in the 250 sculptures that reside throughout the trails of the park, making it the United States largest outdoor sculpture park. The events will be taking place on the top of the hill at the Mill Valley site of the park. Guests must be able to endure a 10 minute walk uphill to the festival site. There will be a shuttle service that will help attendees get to the concert area. “The concert is a benefit concert and it will go towards making improvements at Griffis Sculpture Park,” said Nila Griffis, Executive Director of the park. “We have several new pieces that were

installed from/as a final project from UB Architecture students. They are created on site and can be found along the path leading up to the upper section of the sculpture park and near the stage area.” If you can’t make it to the concert, the park is an awesome place to explore any day of the week this time of year. Since the early 60s, the steel sculptures of Larry Griffis, Jr. and other international artists have been residing in the woods, fields, and even ponds of Griffis Sculpture Park. The park is actually split into two sections: Rohr Hill Road Site and Mill Valley Road Site. The Rohr Hill area is characterized by towering sculptures set in fields and woods just off the road. The Mill Valley Road Site features both a smooth walk area, as well miles of trails through a variety of terrain. “I believe that people continue to come to the park because it is so unlike any other venue - when it was in its conception phase, it was Larry Griffis who wanted to create something that didn’t exist in the United States...a place where you could enjoy art and nature - without the white walls and no touching signs. A place for families to come and interact with the art instead of being told ‘no,’” Griffis said. “We often do school tours and to see the joy on the students’ faces when running, playing and interacting with the nature and art is something that is so wonderful!” For more info, visit www. griffispark.org.

Classified Ads A Look Back Continued from front page

some of the houses were businesses on Main Street and were moved from Main Street to their current position. That is the case for much of the north side of Eaton Street, where many of the houses were small storefronts or barbershops in a former life, so some of the structures are older than what the property title states. With the history of fires we have had in our village, amazingly, there are two houses in the village that are still standing and can be given the title “oldest house in Springville” —The Eaton House on North Buffalo Street and the former Samuel Cochran Home and Forest Hotel on Cochran Avenue. Both were built in 1823. Peregrine Eaton a was a son of Rufus Eaton, the founder of Springville. Rufus surveyed the land and cut parcels to sell, which became Main Street and the old part of the village— Franklin, Buffalo, Main, Mill, Pearl and Church Streets. Christopher Stone, the first settler, built a small structure on Buffalo Street before leaving Springville to continue west. (A replica cabin was built on the spot several years ago.) It is believed that Stone left because of the lack of water. He had set up his settlement of dry creek, which is still the dry creek on Buffalo Street. Samuel Cochran was born in Vermont in 1785. He would marry and with his new wife Catherine, moved to Painted Post. They realized that water was not plentiful there and propaganda from the Holland Land Company listed what is now Springville, Cold Spring. Being unhappy with the lack of water, Samuel came in 1808 to build his temporary home. His wife and child returned in 1809 and had to remove snow from the primitive cabin before they could move in. A few years later, Cochran built a better log cabin at the corner of Franklin and Central avenues. He built a better frame house on Main Street in 1823. At this time, that portion of Main Street was not in the village. The village ended at what was West Avenue, or today’s Central Avenue. As soon as the house was up, travelers passing through would ask to spend the

night and it became a public house in 1824. At one point, it was called the Forest Hotel, and Cochran ran the business until he died in 1844. He was the first permanent settler in the entire town of Concord. Now this is not a misprint. Cochran built the house on Main Street, and the Cochran House was one of the properties that would be moved. In 1883, the Buffalo Rochester and Pittsburgh Railroad came to town. The house was moved to Cochran Avenue and continued to operate as hotel. (The carriage house wasn’t moved, however, and is still standing on Main Street, three house east of Cochran Avenue.) Rufus Eaton arrived in Springville in 1810 and had purchased a good portion of the land that Christopher Stone had settled. He arrived in Springville when he was 40 with his wife and eight of his 11 children. He and his brothers had experience in setting up villages. When he was 16, he and his brothers started the township of Eatonville in Herkimer County. Rufus Eaton built the first sawmill, was the first Justice of the Peace, and donated much of the land around the village that was used for the Presbyterian Church, old cemetery, village square, Chapel Street and old Griffith Institute. Eaton is most noted for being the first postmaster in 1820. In those days, the postmaster named the post office, and Eaton named the post office Springville. In 1823, The Eaton family built a stately house on Buffalo Street. The house stayed in the Peregrine Eaton family until the 1850s when the Joslin family rented the house. In 1860, the Joslins bought the house and the house is still in the Joslin family. That’s almost 160 years in one family. One of the unique things about the house is that it pretty much the same house it was in the 1800s with the exception of a small addition to the side. The Eatons remained in Springville many years after Rufus died in 1845. Eaton Street, Eaton Park and Eaton Pond(Trout Pond) are all reminders of the family legacy.
