What Ellicottville has in store for you this fall By Kellen M. Quigley A destination for people from across the region and internationally, the Ellicottville area offers plenty for families, friends and more during the fall. It all kicks off with Fall Festival next weekend, Oct. 12 and 13. This is the oldest and largest event in the village that takes place when the foliage of the surrounding hills are ablaze with color. Started in 1975 as a way to get people into the budding ski town of Ellicottville as the winter merchandise was coming into the stores, Fall Festival has developed into a festival that brings in more people than organizers can count and bolsters the village’s business base to keep Ellicottville the exciting yet quaint year-round village it has become. Tens of thousands of festival-goers come to Ellicottville each year and make for a lively weekend of unique foods, fine art, an arts and crafts show, carnival rides, live entertainment and much more. All of the festivities get underway Saturday morning at 10 a.m. when the vendors open for business and the food on Jefferson Street is served. Kids can enjoy carnival rides in the Washington Square parking lot starting at 11 a.m. The following weekend, HoliMont will host its annual HoliCX Cyclocross Race on Oct. 19. Combining the colorful landscape, cool crisp air and smell of nature with a zig-zag course, a splash of mud, some grass and a handful of barriers, the fourth annual HoliCX race has everything a biking enthusiast could want. If you like to watch other people suffer where heckling and cowbells are not only allowed but encouraged, then come out and enjoy the fun as a spectator as well.

Fancy a Hayride? Nightmares are back in Ellicottville By Ginna Hensel

Photo by Kellen M. Quigley Nightmare Hayrides are here again for the spookiest month of the year. In its 29th year, the annual attraction runs weekends through Nov. 3 at 6319 Sommerville Valley Road in Ellicottville.

As the leaves change, the air cools and Ellicottville prepares for fall, the home of the famous Ellicottville Championship Rodeo prepares for the scariest time of the year as it transforms into your worst nightmare. This fall marks the 29th year of the Nightmare Hayrides with visitors making the drive from all over North America for the haunting adventure. Owners John and Karen Kent pour their soul into the makings of this event every year, with each one bringing changes, and this year is no exception. John Kent reported that preparations went smoothly this year as the crew has been working since July to bring you happy haunts. The Haunted Hayride crew has remolded three-fourths of their


a barn, added new building for the demon house, redid the parking lot and more. Kent was careful to not reveal too much about the additions, he to wants people come and see them themselves. this But rest assured: year’s fright fest extravaganza will be chilling as the Kents and their crew “have 29 years of haunting experience.” John Kent also shared about the success stories from previous years, saying the Nightmare Hayride attracts Halloween fanatics from all over North

America. They have had visitors from New Jersey, Canada and other faraway places. Kent reported that they have visitors that will make a five-hour drive for the scariest event around. He says they experience families walking up to their security thanking them. “It really shocks me,” Kent said. People tell him “thank you for doing this for our families.” He says that people just love this place and Halloween. It serves as a bonding experience for families and friends alike. People beg him and his wife year after year to continue their business. Kent was also sure to give his employees credit. “Without them,” he says, “it would not be possible… We are one big family.

Ellicottville Town Planning Board continues discussing solar zoning amendment By Ginna Hensel The Town of Ellicottville Planning Board held its regularly scheduled meeting Sept. 23. The board began the meeting by passing a motion to recommend Tim Zerfas to the Town Planning Board, given there are not any conflicts with his father also on the Board. The board also discussed the upcoming Southern Tier West Fall Planning and Zoning Meeting. There are a few members of the board who plan to attend the upcoming meeting in October. The meeting concluded with the board continuing discussion of the Zoning Amendment for Solar Regulations. The board reviewed the first draft of the Zoning Amendment. Several changes were made to the draft, including adding definitions, clarifying the tier levels and adding regulations. According to the board, the tiers now stand as the following: tier one is a small scale solar energy with energy used for onsite consumption; tier two is a house or a business;

and tier three is utilities, farms and anything else not covered under tier one or two. The board also discussed setting the maximum height of solar panels to 36 feet. A new requirement was added to require all solar panels to have an anti-glare coating. In addition, all panels on houses will have to be placed on the side or back of the structure to shield

Those stopping into Balloons Restaurant & Night Club this Friday should prepare for a night of diverse rock with “a little bit of an edge” as Rusty Nickel will be performing in Ellicottville for the first time. Formed in August of 2019, Rusty Nickel is made up of Joe Marciniak, Steve Mineo, Sal Barone, Chris Lepovich and Jim Couch, all from the north towns of Buffalo. “We all live in different towns and villages. Kenmore, Tonawanda, Amherst, Wheatfield and North Tonawanda,” said Couch, the group’s lead guitar player and one of the vocalists. “But we all went to school together growing up” Couch said the group started out jamming together once a week for fun, hanging out and having a beer or two. As they got better, the band decided to play out and see what happened. “It was a benefit for domestic violence if I recall, and everyone loved us, dancing through our whole set!” he said. “We were hooked! Started giving on a regular basis after that.” The bandmates all like different eras of music and different genres, playing originals and some covers, which Couch says they call “the Rusty Nickel Twist.” “We love taking cover songs and changing them just a bit to make them our own,” he explained. “Bittersweet Symphony by the Verve is an excellent example of this.” Back in the USSR by The Beatles and It’s Been Awhile by Stained are others they have tweaked and are crowd-pleasers. Rusty Nickel has had a very busy year, Couch said, playing every weekend and sometimes twice a week for months now. They recently nominated Best New Group by Night Life Magazine’s Music Awards. “Some huge gigs for us recently are the Hard Rock Cafe in Niagara Falls, the Niagara County Peach Festival in Lewiston and, of course, Balloons Night Club in Ellicottville,” Couch said. “In the coming months we have backed off bookings so we can focus

on learning some new material. We have already started booking shows in 2020.” Although this is will be the first time the band will play in Ellicottville, Couch said the bandmembers have visited the village before and really enjoyed the area. When Rusty Nickel received the call for Balloons, they were excited to branch out to the Southern Tier. “It’s just beautiful!” he said of Ellicottville. “We are looking forward to performing for a crowd that most likely will be seeing us for the first time. Excited to see their reaction and hopefully add some new Rusty Nickel fans!” Couch said the setlist is diverse with something for everyone, from classic rock to current rock and alternative rock to country rock, with lots of songs to dance and sing along to. “We have so much fun and that usually translates to the crowd having fun too,” he added. “We like to involve the audience throughout the night.” The band has some new material, Couch said, but they plan on adding many more songs over the next couple months. “We have been so busy it’s been hard to focus on new material.” Rusty Nickel really loves performing together, Couch said, and the members all genuinely like each other since many of them have known each other since high school. “We are close friends,” he said. “But mostly we love seeing the audience dancing and singing and clapping along. That is just awesome!” Couch continued. “Makes you feel connected to the people who came to see you. There is no better feeling when that happens!” The band’s line-up has Joe Marciniak on drums and vocals, Steve Mineo on lead vocals and guitar, Sal Barone on guitar and vocals, Chris Lepovich on bass guitar and Couch on lead guitar and vocals. Rusty Nickel will perform live at Balloons, 20 Monroe St. in Ellicottville, at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4. For more information, follow the band on Facebook at “RUSTYNICKELWNY.”

Salamanca to hold 42nd annual Falling Leaves Festival this weekend

Just as the leaves begin to fall, the 42nd annual Salamanca Seneca Falling Leaves Festival is here this weekend with many favorite attractions returning. This year’s festival, hosted by the City of Salamanca and the Seneca Nation of Indians, features many activities, events, contests, entertainers and more for the whole family between Friday and Sunday. “I think it’s going to be better than last year,” said Jodi Scanlan, a festival organizer. “Every year its grown and done well and the community seems to support it, and it’s a fun thing to be a part of.” The organizing committee of community volunteers has been planning for months trying to make this year’s Falling Leaves Festival bigger — and better — than ever. “We’ve got so much going on,” said festival organizer Kathy Sarver. “We try to add a little more every year.” The weekend kicks off Friday afternoon with the return of “I Got It,” which will open in the park at 4 p.m. Then at 5 o’clock, Championship Wrestling will entertain festival-goers with an exciting show, a big hit with the kids last year

that’s sure to entertain them again. Dozens of food and craft vendors will be on-site throughout the weekend, opening at noon on Friday and 11 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. A live DJ will also be in the park 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Once again, much of the festival is free of charge, especially for kids and their families. The carnival rides, children’s activities through the youth center such as face painting and a bounce house, as well as a caricature artist, photo booth and dunk tank are all free to the public. “Everybody can enjoy the festival, and that’s what’s great about it,” Sarver said. “It’s for the whole community.” Several games and contests will take place Saturday afternoon, including a pie-eating contest, a hot dog eating contest and kids games in the park. In order to plan for unpredictable weather, an 80-foot by 40-foot tent will be set up in the center of Jefferson Street Park. For Saturday’s musical entertainment, the WNY Fiddle Kids will take the stage at 1 p.m., followed by the Cold Spring Indian Dancers at 3 o’clock. Capping off entertain

Saturday is the festival dance in the park at 4:30 with live music from Porcelain Busdrivers. New this year, Sunday begins with a community church service at 10:30 with eight local churches coming together. All are invited to attend. And just like clockwork, the grand parade will be the finale of the festival weekend at 1 p.m. Sunday followed by the concert featuring three marching bands in the park. After the bands wrap up their setlists, Buffalo-area singer/songwriter Stephen Piotrowski will perform live in the park. The beer tent in the park will also be televising the Buffalo Bills game. Finally, the climax of the weekend will be the Wind Tunnel Money Machine where 10 lucky ticket holders will have the opportunity to grab hundreds of dollars in cash. “Giving back to our community is always important,” Scanlan said. “It’s a positive thing for the people, and being able to provide something free for families to come down to — free carnival rides and entertainment for the weekend — is a positive sign. And it helps bring our community together.”

also ‘International’ celebrations, such as a luncheon or dinner, or a dance with music from around the globe.” I asked the newly elected copresident, Abby Donoghue, what she was most excited for this year. “I’m excited for all the new fundraising ideas that we came up with and all the different activities we’re planning,” she said. Next, I asked Sammi Lin, the World Language Club’s secretary, about the different fundraisers they were planning. “We’re going to be selling maroon and white (the school’s colors) MardiGras style fan bead necklaces that’ll be delivered during spirit week,” Sammi said. “We do make some profit from our fundraising, but some of our revenue goes to helping people around the world, like poor Spanish communities.” “In the past, Spanish Club has raised money for Natural Disaster Relief through a Fiesta fundraiser, and we also raised over $1500 to benefit families and individuals in Nicaragua and Guatemala through the “Pulsera Project,’” Jamie explained. French Club has done “Crepes for a Cause” and ornament sales to donate to Heifer International, she continued. In an effort to make sure all of the money they earn during these activities can go directly to the organizations we are

Some would say that the clubs, sports and extracurricular activities were the best part of school, and Ellicottville Central certainly isn’t lacking. Among them is the World Language Club. The club recently held elections to determine who would fill their open positions, and I got a chance to speak with some of the winners, as well as their coach, and ask them a few questions. I spoke to Jamie Edwards, one of the club’s heads alongside Mrs. Emborsky, regarding what the World Language Club is and what they do. “The World Language Club is the student activity formerly known as French Club and Spanish Club,” she said. “We have now joined together, and are hoping to not only carry on previous traditions from the two language clubs from the past but also include some additional activities related to other World Languages and Cultures.” One example Jamie mentioned is having a group of seventh graders who are meeting weekly at lunchtime to teach themselves some Japanese. “At our first meeting, we discussed activities that would be specific to French or Spanish,” she continued, “but

serving, the club aims to raise some money through fundraising to cover the incidental or start-up costs of running these events, such as supplies, shipping costs and more. “We are now in the middle of a Spirit Bead fundraiser,” Jamie said. “We thought this would be a fun tie-in to our school pride, as the beads will be delivered to students during Spirit Week. If we do well on the fundraiser, we can also cover incidentals during our full club activities, though there will be other times where student members pay their own way.” For example, Jamie said if they attend a concert or dinner, students cover the costs of their own experiences, and students will donate food for international potlucks. Finally, Elsa Woodarek, the group’s Chairperson of Fun Times, explained what exactly a Chairperson of Fun Times does. “My job is pretty much a bit of everything,” she said. “There isn’t really anything specific that it does, so I go around and add some pizazz where it’s needed.” The World Language Club is already off to a great start, and if they do as well as they did in the years prior, they will raise a tremendous amount of money for the people who truly need it around the world.

SATURDAY 10/5 JV & V Volleyball: at Olean Tournament (SBU Richter Center)

The Titans, who held JFK (2-2) to 80 yards, have outscored opponents 127-32. “Our defense played phenomenal,” F/E coach Jason Marsh said. “We had a great game plan and executed it well. Once again, up front our offensive line was moving

Senior Jordan Grinols made the most of his six carries at running back on Friday night against visiting John F. Kennedy. Grinols had 99 yards in Franklinville/ Ellicottville’s home game in Franklinville and scored three touchdowns to pace the Titans.

The Ellicottville girls volleyball team gave Olean everything it could handle at home in the first and third sets. A tough second set, however, left it little chance of pulling off the upset. Adele Dwaileebe recorded 11 kills and three digs and the Huskies maintained control in downing the Eagles 25-21, 25-12, 25-19 in a CCAA East contest

on Tuesday. Olean (8-1, 6-1) remained a game back of Portville for first in the league standings while Ellicottville fell to 4-6 (2-4). “Game 1, we were neckand-neck,” Ellicottville coach Katie Auge said. “We’d go up and then they’d go up. Game 2, we crumbled right from the start. We couldn’t get anything going. Game 3, we had more fight, but we just didn’t have any

time left.” Grace Parr added five kills and four aces, Sophia Renaud had 23 assists, six digs and three aces and Destiny Custer had 11 digs and three assists for the Huskies. For Ellicottville, Cyrene Moore had four kills, two aces and two blocks and Heli Kongats (2 kills) and Jenna Hadley (2 kills) added five and four digs, respectively.

Springville/West Valley 3, Ellicottville 0 Springville/West Valley swept the Eagles, 25-12, 25-13, 25-16 on Thursday, Sept. 26. Cyrene Moore had five kills and two blocks for Ellicottville (4-5), Makenna Smith added eight assists and four digs and Heli Kongats marked four kills, six digs and four blocks.

HEALTH & FITNESS: center your weight over your feet. This also helps you maintain the correct form while exercising, which results in fewer injuries and greater gains. And working on balance can even strengthen your abilities in tennis, golf, running, skiing — and just about any other sport or activity. Not an athlete? It still pays to have good balance. Just walking across the floor or down the block requires good balance. So do rising from a chair, going up


and down stairs, toting packages and even turning to look behind you. Poor posture isn’t necessarily a bad habit, either. Physical reasons for poor posture include, people who sit for long durations/work on a computer or just stare at their phones are subject to the following imbalances: Inflexible muscles that decrease range of motion (how far a joint can move in any direction). For example, overly tight, shortened hip muscles

tug your upper body forward and disrupt your posture. Overly tight chest muscles can pull your shoulders forward. The “core muscles” of the back, side, pelvis and buttocks form a sturdy central link between your upper and lower body. Weak core muscles encourage slumping, which tips your body forward and thus off balance. The good news: You can improve your posture with a few simple tricks.

Located at 11 Washington St., between Dina’s and the former M&T Bank building, the store’s main focus will be on gently used books, vinyl records and turntables. Owner Scotty McGee and his fiancée, Rachel Northrup, are both avid readers and they’d like to share their passion with the community. They’ve been working hard all summer and into the fall refurbishing the old brick walls and tin ceiling, installing and varnishing new wood floors and adding a fresh Photo by Deb Everts coat of green paint to the People who love to read and listen to music will exterior. soon gather at McGee’s Books & Curiosities where Northrup is wellthey will find gently used books, vinyl records and known in Ellicottville turntables.

longer need and want.” As far as the curiosities go, McGee said they have a lot of ideas about what they want to bring into the store in the future. They’ve discussed DVDs and new books, but people have also suggested other things including stationery, candles and coffee. He said many of the ideas are great, but they’ll have to bring those in later on and see what works. “We’ve talked about a lot of different ideas and adding ‘Curiosities’ to the store name will allow us some freedom to play with some of those things,” he said. “We’ll probably carry a few socks, but only those related to books and reading. We also plan to bring in some apparel, but that would also be related to literary.” One of his goals is to be able to donate one book for every book he sells, so he’s looking for organizations that might be interested. He’d also like to connect with local organizations and help as much as he can with people that need books. McGee said he’s trying to get his doors open by Ellicottville’s Fall Fest. He’s planning a grand opening celebration for Nov. 2 when everybody will get a free book of their choice. He hopes the store will draw people who love to read and share their opinions on the books they’ve been reading. As long as people can carry the books in, McGee will accept donations of gently used books. He said they can be older books, but they need to be intact and in good condition with no mold. Until his shop opens at 11 Washington St., people may drop books off at the Purple Doorknob at 9 Monroe St. If anyone has more than two boxes of books, they can call 687-8238 and arrange for someone to pick them up. To find out more about McGee’s Books & Curiosities, call 687-8238 or visit the store’s Facebook page that is currently being developed.

‘What Rose Forgot’ by Nevada Barr

Rose Dennis wakes up in a hospital gown, her brain in a fog, only to discover that she’s been committed to an Alzheimer’s Unit in a nursing home. With no memory of how she ended up in this position, Rose is sure that something is very wrong. She avoids taking her medication, putting on a show for the aides, then stages her escape. The only problem is, how does she convince anyone that she’s not actually demented? Her relatives were the ones to commit her, all the legal papers were drawn up, the authorities are on the side of the nursing home, and even she isn’t sure she sounds completely sane. With the help of her computer hacker/recluse sister Marion, thirteen-yearold granddaughter Mel, and Mel’s friend Royal, Rose begins to gather her strength and fight back by taking control of her own life. But someone out there is still determined to kill Rose, and they’re holding all the cards. This book is currently available in book format only at the Ellicottville Memorial Library. You can also download it for free as an eBook or eAudiobook version to your own device using your library card.

Fall and winter can be tough on your home and your wallet. As temperatures drop, chances are your furnace will be working overtime. This results in two things - greater energy consumption and higher heating bills. In fact, costs associated with heating and cooling a home year-round typically comprise two-thirds of the average energy bill.

Try these easy DIY projects to help cut down on energy loss

It’s a nearly-scientific fact that you can solve most any problem by putting dirt on it. Scraped knee? Dirt. Embarrassing bald spot? Dirt. Nagging mother-in-law? Dirt. Lots of it. Juuust kidding. The point is, when people need a little more excitement in life, they probably just need to add a little dirt. And that’s where KIOTI tractors come in. Intuitively designed to dominate the dirt, these machines make it an easy decision for anyone also inclined to favor the filthy.

and expenses: 1. Replace worn weather-stripping around doors and windows. Worn weather-stripping can create drafts and let heated air out, stressing your furnace and compromising your comfort. Replacing it takes little time and is a low-cost, high-impact solution. 2. Top up or replace old insulation in your attic. A poorly insulated attic is a primary source of energy loss. Also, over time, some types of insulation can settle and compact, allowing heat to escape through gaps. Experts recommend topping up or replacing attic insulation with a dimensionally stable batt insulation like Roxul Comfortbatt. Aim for an R-value of at least R-50 or a depth of roughly 16 inches. 3. Insulate basement headers and walls. Uninsulated basement headers are common, especially in older homes. They can act as

a gateway for heated air to escape. Fixing the problem is fast and easy. Simply cut Comfortbatt mineral wool insulation to fit the cavity and compress into place. Doing this throughout your basement will prevent heat loss and can potentially save hundreds of dollars each year. 4. Caulk around windows. Cracks and crevices are a source of heat loss. They can also be an entry point for water/moisture, as well as for unwelcome insects. Preventative maintenance, such as caulking, can improve energy efficiency and prevent costly repairs. 5. Change your furnace filter. Make it a point to check your furnace filter monthly, always changing it when it’s dirty. This will improve the performance and efficiency of your furnace, saving you money.

Also that weekend, Holiday Valley, New York state’s largest ski resort, is hoping to have the snowmakers and the ski

lifts running for the open day of the 2019-20 ski season, weather permitting. Check for more info. The opening day at HoliMont is tentatively scheduled for midDecember each year. Check for the latest updates. Then on Dec. 7, celebrate the holiday season with A Christmas Stroll through Ellicottville, including a living Nativity, complete with a camel, all downtown in the village. The stroll was created in 1987 by a group of citizens who wanted to organize such an event, deciding that they wanted a live nativity scene, with children dressed as angels and shepherds, who walked around the village and met at the gazebo. There, the baby Jesus was presented and caroling presided. The tradition has continued on for the past 28 years. For more information on all that’s happening in Ellicottville, visit
