VOLUME 6 ISSUE 33
AUGUST 18 - 24, 2017
By Alicia Dziak
With only two short weeks left before Labor Day weekend, it’s crunch time for that summer bucket list! Just because it’s time for back-toschool shopping doesn’t mean the party is over. There’s still plenty of time to squeeze in the last of the summer fun in the next three weekends, and Ellicottville is just the place to do it! Don’t miss your chance for adventure at Holiday Valley’s Sky High, where you can zipline, navigate obstacles, climb to the treetops and soar down the mountain all in one day! Sky High is made up of three components: the Aerial Park, the Climbing Forest and the Sky Flyer Mountain Coaster. The Aerial Park, the largest of its kind in New York State and third largest in the U.S., combines a series of platforms and bridges built in a 4-acre section of the woods near the resort’s Tannenbaum Lodge. The Aerial Park includes 142 platforms, 170 elements and 43 ziplines, with the tallest platform at 68 feet and the longest zip line measuring 350 feet. For rates and to make reservations, visit www. holidayvalley.com/summer/ sky-high- adventure-park/. Those ages ﬁve and up can enjoy the Climbing Forest, which is like a 3D version of a rock wall, and only one of three in the country. There are 10 trees outﬁtted with color-coded climbing holds and the difﬁculty ranges from very easy (yellow) to very challenging (purple). Each climber is ﬁtted with a harness that is clipped into an Auto Belay system. Once a climber reaches the top of the tree at up to 45 feet, they just let go and the belay system slowly lowers them to the ground. There is also a kids’ area with two trees where the

The Great American Solar Eclipse Aug. 21
By Alicia Dziak
On Monday, Aug. 21, a solar eclipse will occur. It will be the ﬁrst time since 1979 that any part of the continental U.S. has experienced a total solar eclipse. While this scientiﬁc event will be best seen in its totality along the path from Oregon to South Carolina, Western New Yorkers will still be able to witness a partial solar eclipse. According to www.buffaloeclipse. org, “A solar eclipse happens when the moon, as seen by us on Earth, passes directly in front of the sun. Once each month, the moon makes a complete orbit (or revolution) around the Earth. The changing angle of See Eclipse page 7

Daily Core Use
By Kim Duke, NETA & AAFA Certified Trainer
Over the years and the last few weeks, I have written articles promoting the importance of a strong core for many things. However, have you ever considered how important your core is for daily activities? Think of your core muscles as the sturdy central link in a chain connecting your upper and lower body. Whether you’re hitting a tennis ball or mopping the ﬂoor, the necessary motions either originate in your core, or move through it. No matter where motion starts, it ripples upward and downward to adjoining links of the chain. Thus, weak or inﬂexible core muscles can impair how well your arms and legs function. And that saps power from many of the moves you make. Properly building up your core cranks up the power. A strong core also enhances balance and stability. Thus, it can help prevent falls and injuries during sports or other activities. In fact, a strong, ﬂexible core underpins almost everything you do: • Everyday acts. Bending to put on shoes or scoop up a package, turning to look behind you, sitting in a chair, or simply standing still — these are just a few of the many mundane actions that rely on your core and that you might not notice until they become difﬁcult or painful. Even basic activities like vacuuming, mopping, bathing or dressing, for example — call on your core. • On-the-job tasks. Our widespread dependence on artiﬁcial support, such as chair backs that shoulder us
from sitting up straight have left many of us with weak spines and soft middles. Jobs that involve lifting, twisting, and standing all rely on core muscles. But less obvious tasks — like sitting at your desk for hours — engage your core as well. Phone calls, typing, computer use, and similar work can make back muscles surprisingly stiff and sore, particularly if you’re not strong enough to practice good posture and aren’t taking sufﬁcient breaks. • Sports and other pleasurable activities. Golﬁng, tennis or other racquet sports, biking, running, swimming, baseball, volleyball, kayaking, rowing and many other athletic activities are powered by a strong core. • Balance and stability. Your core stabilizes your body, allowing you to move in any direction, even on the
bumpiest terrain, or stand in one spot without losing your balance. Viewed this way, core exercises can lessen your risk of falling. • Good posture. Weak core muscles contribute to slouching. Good posture trims your silhouette and projects conﬁdence. More importantly, it lessens wear and tear on the spine and allows you to breathe deeply. Good posture helps you gain full beneﬁts from the effort you put into exercising, too. Weak, tight, or unbalanced core muscles can undermine you in any of these realms. And while it’s important to build a strong core, it’s unwise to aim all your efforts at developing rippling abs. Overtraining abdominal muscles while snubbing muscles of the back and hip can set you up for injuries and cut athletic prowess.

for visitors of all ages, and there’s no better time to plan your visit! As the days become shorter, it’s important to make every minute of summer count! Before the kids head back to school, take them for an unforgettable experience at Mike and Sue Bean’s A Slice of Heaven alpaca farm, located at 11144 Pope Road. Meet their friendly herd of alpacas, which has recently grown. Just a few weeks ago, Stetson and Belleza’s cria (baby alpaca) was born—meet this sweet little addition to the herd when you visit.
Don’t forget to check out the farm’s Simply Natural Alpaca Gift Shop, which has a great selection of alpaca products. Start the school year out right with a new pair of cozy alpaca socks, which are sure to keep you warm on frosty fall mornings. Sue is excited to demonstrate her new felt loom, which uses alpaca ﬁber and fabric, such as scarves, to make unique gifts. Sign up for lessons by calling (716)3585242! Now is the perfect time to take a drive through Amish country, as late summer means lots of fresh produce picks, like corn, potatoes, beets, green beans, blueberries, peaches and more. Visitors can pick up a map of the Amish Trail, which begins in Randolph and takes visitors throughout Cattaraugus County’s Amish communities. These selfguided driving tours allow visitors to tour at their own pace. For a truly unforgettable experience, take a guided Amish tour this summer with one of Randolph’s experienced local guides.

Now is the time to plan a visit to the Randolph DEC Fish Hatchery, located just two miles east of the village at 10943 Hatchery Road. The Randolph Hatchery is one of just 12 hatcheries in New York State; these hatcheries stock ﬁsh in over 1,200 public waters across the state. The Randolph Hatchery mainly raises brook, brown, and rainbow trout, and stocks public waters in Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, and Wyoming counties. The Randolph Hatchery is most known for stocking brook trout, commonly known as
“brookies,” which are native to New York State and are the ofﬁcial state ﬁsh. Visitors are welcome to explore the hatchery year ‘round as it is open daily from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. For more information, call the hatchery at (716)358-4755. The hatchery is famous for the historic discovery of the “Randolph mammoth”: In 1934, pond excavators at the ﬁsh hatchery discovered the skull and both tusks of a Columbian mammoth that roamed the area some 12,000 years ago! These remains, which have been held at the state museum in Albany since their discovery, are now on display at the Cattaraugus County Museum in nearby Machias. Call the museum at (716)353-8200 to plan your visit! For more information about Randolph businesses and upcoming events, visit www. EnjoyRandolph.org.

“Paradise Valley” by C.J. Box
For three years, Investigator Cassie Dewell has been on a hunt for a serial killer known as the Lizard King whose hunting grounds are the highways and truck stops where runaways and prostitutes are most likely to vanish. Cassie almost caught him...once. Now, Kyle Westergaard, a troubled kid whom Cassie has taken under her wing, has disappeared after telling people that he’s going off on a long-planned adventure. Kyle’s grandmother begs Cassie to ﬁnd him and, Cassie agrees - all the while hunting the truck driver. Now Cassie is a lone wolf. And in the same way that two streams converge into a river, Kyle’s disappearance may have a more sinister meaning than anyone realizes. With no allies, no support, and only her own wits to rely on, Cassie must take down a killer who is as ruthless as he is cunning. But can she do it alone, without losing her own humanity or her own life?
This book is currently available in book format only at the Ellicottville Memorial Library. It is also available as a large print book using our interlibrary loan program. Don’t forget, you can access over 15,400 eBooks and eAudiobooks using your library card!

sunlight on the moon causes the waxing and waning of the moon’s phases. “...Even though the sun is much larger than the moon, the two bodies are at just the right distances to make them appear to be the same size in our sky. This means that the bright yellow disk of the sun, known as the photosphere, can be blocked revealing the sun’s atmosphere which is called the corona. When this happens, a beautiful ring of light appears, the stars are visible in the middle of the day, birds stop chirping because they think it is night time, and people experience a few minutes of eerie “totality” darkness in the middle of the day.” On Monday, Aug. 21, Western New Yorkers will be able to witness about 75 percent of the sun obscured by the moon. The partial eclipse will begin about 1:11 p.m., last about two hours and 39 minutes, with the maximum occurring at 2:33 p.m. If you’re interested in getting the most out of the experience, several local venues will be hosting special events to celebrate. Check out Eclipse-O-
Rama at the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library Central Branch. This event on Saturday, Aug. 19, includes free family activities, crafts, demos about the sun, planets and astronomy! For more info, visit www.buffalolib.org. Whitworth Ferguson Planetarium at Buffalo State College will be offering special programming Saturdays at 6 and 7:30 p.m. through Aug. 26. The 2017 Great American Solar Eclipse is a presentation about the mythology, history, and science of eclipses with a focus on this year’s eclipse. This program will also discuss how the partial eclipse will look from Buffalo, where you can go in the area for special viewing opportunities, and how there will be a total solar eclipse in Buffalo in 2024. It concludes with a 10-minute tour of the constellations, planets, and other celestial objects in the night sky. Total program is approximately 45 minutes long. All attendees get a free pair of eclipse glasses to safely view the eclipse. Buff State will also host the Eclipse View and Do on
Aug. 21 from 12:30 to 4 p.m. Free and open to the public (park in the R-14 Lot on Rockwell Road), the event will include safe eclipse viewing (telescopes with solar ﬁlters and free eclipse glasses) as well as fun and educational activities, astronomy activities, food trucks and more. For more info, visit www. fergusonplanetarium.net. Head to Penn-Dixie, Aug. 21 from 1 to 4 p.m., where there will be extra telescopes on site, fun hands-on astronomy activities for all ages, and free solar viewing glasses for the ﬁrst 1,000 guests. Admission will be free for members and $4 for the public. No pre-registration needed. For more info, visit penndixie.org. While the partial eclipse can be seen from just about anywhere, it’s important to view it safely. Be sure to read up on the safety precautions of viewing at www. buffaloeclipse.org.

to all areas of concern in the village. The current plan is to extend, or widen the sidewalk somewhat, so that the snowplowing won’t dig up the grass. A honeycomb “geo-block” system will be installed, which permits the grass to grow up through it, yet offers a stable base. Six trees were removed, and six new trees will be relocated and planted in the spring of 2018. Village Benches There are currently 55 memorial benches around the village, with requests for at least three more. Over the summer, the village DPW crew has replaced the aging wood on all the benches with new tight-knotted cedar wood. Village Park Stadium In 2016, Chris Woodarek replaced the roof on the Village Park stadium, along with other buildings, with materials bought by the Village of Ellicottville. This summer, all the boards on the seating area of the stadium were replaced by village DPW crews. All that is left is to seal the boards. The stadium will seat up to 250 spectators. Additional work may include enclosing a storage area and constructing a concession stand. Job well done!
Morton Retires from DPW Harold Morton has submitted his letter of intent to retire, effective Aug. 31, 2017. Morton has worked for the village of Ellicottville since January 1987, retiring as DPW Superintendent. He intends to take a little time off, and then continue working part-time as a laborer and consultant where needed. When the new village/ town engineer is hired, the responsibilities of the DPW Superintendent will fall under the engineering position. Hiring Advertising for the position of Town/Village Engineer is underway, with several applications received to date. The engineer position has a salary range of $80,000 $120,000 and will be shared by the Town of Ellicottville and Village of Ellicottville. The Village will also be advertising for a part-time summer staff personnel, needed for mowing the Village Square, Village Park, soccer ﬁeld, arboretum and other properties, watering and maintaining the village ﬂowers, leaf collection, as well as many other duties required by the DPW. The next meeting of the Village Board is scheduled for Monday, September 11, 2017.
