The High School Circus: An ECS student’s perspective

By Louisa Benatovich, Student Reporter Success is often coined as one’s ability to juggle the multitude of strangeness that life presents. Some are far better than others, and these elite few soar through life as the ones who have it all. This cacophony of responsibility is supposed to begin after high school, even after college. Life in high school is supposed to be simple, binary: get good grades for a good life. Of course, there are other options — technical schools, special programs and the like — but the principle remains. It should be a simple game of catch, right? Nowadays, high school students juggle much more than their decades-older counterparts. I suppose bias plays its role in that statement, but with depression and anxiety commonplace, who could exactly argue? Standards for universities and employment climb higher and higher, and we stand now in an epidemic where students overexert themselves just to stand a chance at a future. It’s not simple game. It’s a veritable circus. “Yes, I do think school is harder now than it was, say, 50 years ago,” says Meganne Chapman, an aspiring civil engineer. “Now, we have lots of college classes to contend with, most with the same standard as if they were in the college setting.” Chapman, who plays three varsity sports, participates in a variety of clubs, stars in the school musical, plays an instrument, balances a rigorous course load, stays in the top five of her class and holds down a job, gets frustrated when she’s told to slow down. “I’m still a kid. I have a right to experience things,” she said. Chapman’s schedule, though, she acquiesces, does take its toll. She gets between four to six hours of sleep per night. When asked exactly how she balances it all, Chapman’s response is short: “I don’t know.” Sierra Maybee, senior and prospective pharmacist, shoulders a similar workload with the weighty addition of the New Visions program.

“The only way to make myself stay on top of my work,” she explains, “is to force myself to do it when I have the time. It’s especially hard after sports games.” “I enjoy sports. I’m not going to give them up because people think I’m overloading myself,” she continued. “I’ve been playing from such a young age, they’re just a part of my life. Maybee said she doesn’t think she’d be who she is today if not for being forced to balance it all. “The reality is, in high school, students don’t get enough recognition for the stress they go through,” said Ginna Hensel, senior and a driving force at ECS. “We have jobs, play sports, run our clubs, play instruments or sing, help our families and go to school.” Although she can’t tell you how she does it, Hensel said the biggest helpful hint she can give is to find your drive. “Find that ‘chip on your shoulder’ that will cause you to work hard, play hard, and keep going,” she said. “For me, it is my little brother. I know that if I work hard now, I can reward him and myself later in life.” “I stay on top of things by using every second of free-time I have,” Hensel continued. “And I make sure to reward myself after a long week. I always give 100 percent during the week and take a little break on the weekend. Above all, I try to get enough sleep.” As a high school student myself, I see this drive sometimes twisted into something ugly. No longer is it in pursuit of passion, but, instead, in the name of competition. It’s a fencing match, jabs back and forth of who slept less, who worked longer and who did better. It can get toxic, but, as seniors, we like to think we’ve found some sort of balance. We all have our “thing.” Some of us work 40 hours in a week, some take care of sick relatives and some parent their siblings while their mothers and fathers maintain jobs. No one of us is better than the other. This wasn’t written to attract pity or spark some sort of generational controversy. This was merely written as a proclamation. For those who worry about this generation: don’t. We’ve walked the tightrope long enough. We’ll be just fine.

Billy Ray Cyrus coming to Salamanca for May concert The Southern Tier will need to mend its “achy breaky heart” this May when Billy Ray Cyrus performs at Seneca Allegany Resort and Casino. Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday, Feb. 22 at noon.

His first album, 1992’s “Some Gave All” debuted at number one on the Billboard album charts and stayed there for an amazing 17 weeks. The album was fueled by Cyrus’ first single, which would go

on to sell millions of copies and help launch a dance line craze, “Achy Breaky Heart.” Other hits from the album included “Could’ve Been Me” and “She’s Not Cryin’ Anymore.” His second album, “It Won’t Be the Last,” also debuted at the top of the charts and included the Top Ten singles “In The Heart of a Woman” and “Somebody New.” In all, Cyrus has released 12 studio albums and has scored a total of eight Top Ten singles since his 1992 debut. In addition to his successful music career, he has starred in numerous television shows, most notably “Doc” from 2001 to 2004 and “Hannah






Montana” from 2006 to 2011, which helped launch his daughter, Miley Cyrus, into superstardom. Tickets start at $25. In addition to Billy Ray Cyrus, tickets are still available for other unforgettable shows at Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino, including Rodney Carrington, who’s coming to the casino March 9, and The Doobie Brothers, who will be there April 13.

Get schooled on wedding terminology

Couples about to embark on their wedding journeys will likely learn a thing or two about party planning once their engagements are over and they are newly married. Wedding planning can seem overwhelming and a tad confusing at times, but a crash course in wedding terminology can help couples make more informed choices along the way. • Blusher: A short, single-layer veil that covers the bride’s face before the ceremony. • Boutonnière: A single flower bud worn by the men in the bridal party. • Canapés: Bite-sized appetizers served during the cocktail hour of a reception. • Civil ceremony: A marriage ceremony conducted by a council official or justice of the peace at a municipal location rather than in a house of worship. • Cocktail hour: Typically an hour-long interlude between the wedding ceremony and the main dinner of the reception. Guests have time to arrive and mingle before being seated. • Corkage fee: A fee some establishments charge to allow guests to bring their own wine. • Dais: A podium or platform raised from the floor where the bride and groom are seated. • Deposit: A percentage of the total cost of service given to a vendor to secure a date for their services. • Dragées: Round, small edible balls of sugar that appear on

wedding cakes. • Escort (seating) cards: Printed cards that direct reception guests to their seats. • Fondant: A sweet, plyable product used to decoratively cover layered cakes. It can be used in lieu of straight buttercream. • Handle wrap: Ribbon or fabric that wraps around the stems of a bouquet the bride and wedding party carries. • Maid/matron of honor: The title given to the woman who assists the bride and stands closest to her at the altar. “Maids” are those who

are unmarried, while “matrons” are women who are. • Master of ceremonies: An individual who will work with the DJ or band to announce the various components of the wedding reception. • Nosegay: A small bouquet or flower arrangement typically given to the mothers of the bride and groom before the ceremony. • Processional/ Recessional: Musical pieces that mark the entrance and exit from the wedding ceremony. • Receiving line: A

line of the key people in the wedding who welcome and greet guests. • Stationery: All of the paper products used at the wedding, including invitations, programs and enclosures. • Tablescape: A word that describes the multiple components of centerpiece designs. Learning some basic wedding terminology can simplify wedding planning.

Tyler Hind poured in 26 points and Kaleb Steward notched 11 to power Randolph on Thursday in a regular season-ending boys basketball victory over Ellicottville. The Cardinals pulled away with a 70-45 win. Logan Grinols and Steven Rowland scored 14 and 11 points, respectively, while Clayton Rowland pulled down nine rebounds and Wyatt Chudy had seven rebounds and five steals for the Eagles, who closed the regular season at 13-7.

Ellicottville played the Cardinals evenly in the second half, but couldn’t overcome an early 17-5 hole. “We started out slow; we just played a little rattled in the first half (with 14 turnovers),” Eagles coach Dave McCann said. “We battled in the second half (only 5 giveaways). We won the third quarter. We played a lot better on both sides. “We were able to improve some things as the game went on, we just could never overcome that slow start.”

By Kim Duke One of the many things I stress as a professional personal trainer is the speed or tempo at which you perform an exercise.

Very often I need to tell clients to slow down, stop jerking and to feel the movement. This cannot happen when your pace is basically momentum with no regard for muscle development. Tempo is definitely one of the most often ignored parts of a workout routine. Many lifters are more concerned with how much they are lifting rather than how they are lifting. When you slow down and focus on your tempo, you will not be able to lift as much weight as you would if you utilized momentum. Weight lifting at a

quicker tempo builds speed, strength, and power, but produces less muscle tension overall so your muscle size won’t increase dramatically. At a slower tempo, there is higher tension in the muscle, which is key to building bigger muscle size (hypertrophy). While researching for this article, I found it fascinating at the variety and scope of tempos created by professional trainers and other experts in the fitness arena. During a workout, it can be argued that tempo training can be included for literally every exercise. It

Ellicottville mayor reports on recent state meeting trip

By Caitlin Croft

The regular meeting of the Village Board opened with approval of the minutes from the January 2019 meeting. The board also approved the budget modifications and pay the bills with the condition that there would be confirmation and clarity on one bill from Nixon Peabody regarding recent charges of $2,200. With this, there was discussion regarding applying any legal fees for projects back to the applicant. During the mayor’s report, the board approved Mayor John Burrell to sign the Municipal Solutions contract Renewal with Jeff Smith. Smith is consulting with the village and town on how to best consolidate the Water District. The goal on this consolidation is July 2020. Regarding the DRI Grant, the process is moving along. Burrell attended the NYCOM Winter Legislative Meeting where the hot topics were Governor Cuomo’s budget and Cannabis legalization. In regard to the budget a hot topic is the elimination of AID funding to the villages across the state. With Ellicottville’s own budget coming up, they will have to raise taxes or cut services if this state budget is passed. Burrell and many other mayors across the state are agitated by this. The general consensus with cannabis legalization, if passed, is that they want the majority of tax revenue earned to stay at the state/local level. Burrell discussed the hiring of a new village attorney. He asked that a request for quotes (RFQ) be sent out and recommendations be made so that a decision can be made at the March 2019 meeting. The board approved sending out the RFQ. During the engineer’s report, Niles Pierson, Town/Village Engineer, gave a kudos to the new intern Brandon for taking all of the data collected last summer on the

Water District and using free EPA software was able to plot and create an interactive GIS map of the system. Most mapping software costs upwards of $10,000, so this was a large savings to the town and village. This has already proven useful and has been able to help forcast what type of demand a large project would put on the system. The board approved sending three members of the DPW to water school. There was some discussion regarding pay schedules. When employees attend this training they are given a raise, Patra Lowes, feels we do not need to spend the money to train every employee as most don’t end up in a position to use the training. Pierson advised her that with the new pay schedule, effective June 2019, all pay rates are merit based with annual reviews. Last, Pierson proposed the purchase of a new Sewer truck as the old one is from the 1970s and essentially obsolete and if there was a large issue it would be useless. The board approved purchase of the new Sewer Truck for $338,710. Lowes noted the sidewalks are still treacherous. She has been a firm advocate in the past for clean walkable sidewalks year round. She does not feel we can market Ellicottville as a “walkable” village if they are not properly maintained during the winter months. There are currently three new parties who want to purchase dedication benches in the village. There will be a press release with all names of current bench plaques so that they can be renewed or returned to the original owners. There board also approved Burrell to attend the NYCOM annual meeting in Cooperstown and accepted the resignation of Kelly Bigos. The next meeting of the village board is schedule for March 18 at the Town/Village Hall.



might not be necessary, but it can play a role. There are many reasons to use tempo training. Here’s just a brief list: • Improved body awareness. • Improved control of lifts. • Development of connective tissue strength. • Improved stability. • Focus on muscular elements versus tendinous elements (slow, controlled motion is going to place more stress on the muscles, whereas a bouncy or ballistic motion will place more stress on the tendons, etc.).

Without getting too technical, the most important thing to remember with regards to tempo is that you never want to train at a rate that does not allow you to lift with a smooth and controlled motion. This smooth and controlled motion is critical to your weight training success. Lifting too fast will force momentum to become a major player and will not sufficiently work the muscles. But, most importantly, lifting too fast will lead to jerky motions that can lead to injuries. It is important

to note that tempo is not the only major factor that can derail form, lifting at a slower rate but at a weight that is too heavy can also lead to bad motion and bad injuries. Controlling your tempo will help you improve control, create hypertrophy and help you push past strength plateaus. So next time you’re in the gym, slow down, breathe and feel the muscles working with you. Remember: you work out because you love your body, not because you hate it.

Great Valley town board discusses various projects in Kill Buck

File photo Plans for various projects in Kill Buck are being considered after discussion by the Great Valley Town Board last week, including a new playground and renovations in the pavilion at the Kill Buck Community Park.

By Kellen M. Quigley Various projects concerning the sewer system, community park and potential playground were all discussed last week at the Great Valley Town Board’s regular meeting. The board has been working for a couple months on a grant to have a study done on the Kill Buck sewer system, but needs the cooperation of the hamlet’s residents for the income study to have a better chance of securing the grant. “The people in Kill Buck that will be part of this sewer district that we’re studying to see if it’s feasible will be getting an income study report,” said Town Supervisor Daniel Brown. “It needs to be completed and sent back or else this whole thing is waste.” According to Brown, the project would only affect homes off the Seneca Nation territory, which essentially means all properties north of Route 417 between Great Valley Creek and Hardscrabble Road. “The Nation didn’t want to work with Salamanca and Salamanca didn’t want to work with them, but they said they’d both work with us,” he explained. “There’s a 20-foot area running down 417, and that’s the only place the sewer can go.” Brown said there has been a lot more work involved in beginning the project than what

the town originally had thought. Although the town has been approved to receive the funds, there were many more requirements that have to be met, said town clerk Toni Evans. “Toni and I have done our part up through doing the income study report,” Brown said. IN ADDITION to the sewer project, the town has also been looking ahead to use of the community park this summer. Evans said six weekend dates between June and August have already been booked. “When you think about how many Saturdays there are available, six of them are already taken because everybody wants to have a party,” Brown said. Brown said one question the town has received a few times is if there is a stage for live music. Although the stage at the pavilion has been removed, he asked the board if they want to look into converting a small area where the old kitchen is into a stage. “There’s nothing in the kitchen now, it’s all opened,” he said. “I’d

like to get a commercial sink in where we store the tables in the other building.” He said by having a sink and clean-up area in the building where the restrooms are located, the town would only have to winterize that facility instead of that building and the pavilion. Along with work on the pavilion, the town is looking at the possibility of a new playground at the park. Town Attorney Peter J. Sorgi said he’s been in contact with the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation about applying for a grant for new playground equipment. “We would need someone to put in writing what exactly we’re doing, what the history is and the size of the property,” he said. Brown said he had been in contact with people who worked on the Highland Avenue Playground project in Salamanca in 2018, which was also partially funded by the Wilson Foundation. Sorgi said the application has to be submitted by June.

Angling for a better creek

DEC evaluating response to Upper Cattaraugus Creek proposal

By Rick Miller

The state Department of Environmental Conservation is evaluating comments received last month on plans to restore connectivity to more than 500 miles of Upper Cattaraugus Creek and its tributaries. The draft Upper Cattaraugus Creek Fisheries Restoration Plan by DEC coincides with the lowering of Scoby Hill Dam on Cattaraugus Creek near Springville by 25 feet. The draft plan is a roadmap for fisheries management practices following the planned fish passage project at the Springville dam. The project, slated for 2021, includes building a fish ladder for steelhead trout while maintaining a sea lamprey barrier. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced the Springville Dam Ecosystem Restoration Project in August 2017. The 38-foot dam produced electricity for the village of Springville until 1997. It will be lowered to 13 feet. The fish ladder, combined with trap and sort capabilities, will keep invasive species like the sea lamprey from reaching the Upper Cattaraugus. The dam has blocked connectivity with 34 miles of Cattaraugus Creek between Lake Erie and Springville for 100 years. There is limited access to Cattaraugus Creek below the dam. Much of it is in the Zoar Valley Multiple Use Area and the Seneca Nation of Indians Cattaraugus Territory. Despite limited access, the creek is considered the highest quality steelhead stream in New York state by the state Department of Environmental Conservation. “Lower Cattaraugus Creek is regarded as one of the premier destinations in North America for steelhead anglers, and upper Cattaraugus Creek provides excellent angling opportunities for resident rainbow and brown trout,” DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos said in a statement. “This plan seeks to enhance Cattaraugus Creek as a premier destination in Western New York for a

Photo by Rick Miller The Scoby Hill Dam in Springville that cuts off the Upper Cattaraugus Creek from the Lower Cattaraugus Creek will be lowered by 25 feet in 2021. A fish ladder will be installed to let steelhead trout migrate above the 34-mile Lower Cattaraugus, but prevent the invasive sea lamprey.

year-round, high-quality sport fishery.” The Scoby Hill Dam stretches 300 feet across Cattaraugus Creek between Cattaraugus and Erie counties. Lowering the dam in the $7 million project and allowing steelhead to migrate into the 557 miles of the Upper Cattaraugus Creek and its tributaries will increase the opportunities for steelhead fishermen, according to DEC. There are already more than 30 miles of DEC fishing access above the dam where anglers will begin seeing steelhead over the next 10 to 15 years. “I’m in favor of allowing fish to move upstream,” said Vince Tobia, owner of Cattaraugus Outfitters, who probably knows Cattaraugus Creek’s fishery as well as anyone. Providing proper safeguards are in place against the sea lamprey getting past the dam, Tobia said he thinks the trout fisheries above the dam will be fine once the creek is opened up. It will lead to natural reproduction by the steelhead in tributaries in the Upper Cattaraugus, Tobias said. “There’s more high-quality water upstream,” he said. “Ultimately, the goal is more naturally reproducing fish.” The DEC stocks more than 90,000 “Washington strain” steelhead yearlings a year in Cattaraugus Creek below the dam. DEC has confirmed about 17 percent of the steelhead in the creek and its tributaries are from natural reproduction.

Brown trout are also stocked in the creek. There are some native brown trout in some tributaries as well. Tobia said he feels the steelhead can coexist with the trout in the Upper Cattaraugus and its tributaries. “You are going to have natural reproduction (of steelhead) in the Upper Cattaraugus,” he said. “Hopefully it won’t affect native brook trout” that spawn in some of the tributaries. The Upper Cattaraugus starts at Java Lake Outlet in Wyoming County. Major tributaries in Cattaraugus, Erie and Wyoming counties include: Spring Brook, Hosmer Creek, Clear Creek, Elton Creek, McKinstry Creek, Lime Lake Outlet. The only concern Tobia said he has heard was that some fishermen thought the steelhead might present too much competition for brown, brook and rainbow trout in the Upper Cattaraugus. Tobia believes there is enough of insects, baitfish and habitat in the Upper Cattaraugus and its tributaries to go around with the introduction of steelhead after the dam is lowered and the fish ladder installed. “I think it will be OK,” Tobia said. “The DEC has done the studies. I don’t think the effects will be that much in 10-15 years. There will be a lot more (fishing) access and opportunities” in the Upper Cattaraugus. The full draft study is available on the DEC’s website.

‘The Storyteller’s Secret’ by Sejal Badani

Nothing prepares Jaya, a New York journalist, for the heartbreak of her third miscarriage and the slow unraveling of her marriage in its wake. Desperate to assuage her deep anguish, she decides to go to India to uncover answers to her family’s past. Intoxicated by the sights, smells, and sounds she experiences, Jaya becomes an eager student of the culture. But it is Ravi — her grandmother’s former servant and trusted confidant — who reveals the resilience, struggles, secret love and tragic fall of Jaya’s pioneering grandmother during the

British occupation. Through her courageous grandmother’s arrestingly romantic and heart-wrenching story, Jaya discovers the legacy bequeathed to her and a strength that, until now, she never knew was possible. This book is currently available in book format only at the Ellicottville Memorial Library.

County Wide Trail Committee expected to discuss expanding trails By Rick Miller

Cattaraugus County’s County Wide Trail Committee was expected to meet Thursday to talk about the next step toward its goal — connecting and expanding existing trails. “We plan on talking about funding we’ve applied for from the Appalachian Regional Commission to GIS all trails in the county and develop an app for smartphones so people can tell where they are on the trails and where access points are located,” said Kate O’Stricker, development specialist with the county Department of Economic Development, Planning and Tourism. “The app will also show restaurants and other amenities near trail access points,” she said. The committee will also discuss signage to tie the countywide trail system together. “If you look at snowmobile trails, they are well-marked,” O’Stricker said. “Our trails will need signs that are easy to read and understand. We’ll be putting out a request for proposals for the design of the signs.” Cattaraugus County is waiting to hear about its ARC grant request, O’Stricker said. Some new trail construction is expected to start this summer with two sections of the proposed EllicottvilleGreat Valley Trail, O’Stricker said. The trail was first proposed five years ago. “It’s going very slow, but it will be great. They’ve applied for several grants.” Filling in the gaps in the existing trail system will take a long time, she admitted. “It’s very slow, but we’re making progress.” O’Stricker will ask attendees to briefly update other members of progress on their trails since the last meeting of the committee last year. “We hope to get a better picture of where the gaps are and

connect these gaps.” A year-long trail study was completed in October 2017 by Barton & Loguidice of Rochester. “We’re surrounded by trails in Cattaraugus County,” O’Stricker said. The Finger Lakes/North Country Trail cuts north to south through Cattaraugus County and there are trails in Allegany, Chautauqua and Erie counties that match up with trails in this county. Trail benefits range from improved health stemming from the exercise of walking to an economic boost for communities with popular trails. Recommendations from the trail study include: • Add a Genesee Valley Greenway connection to the Finger Lakes/North Country Trail systems in Hinsdale. • Add a trail connection with the ErieCattaraugus Rail Trail in Ashford and connections to the North Country/Finger Lakes trails. • Expand the Allegheny River Valley Trail along the Allegheny River to Salamanca, and continue west along abandoned railroad beds to the Chautauqua County line. • Extend the Pat McGee Trail into the city of Salamanca to connect with the Pennsy Trail and Allegany State Park. Also, extend the Pat McGee Trail north of Cattaraugus to Gowanda. • Build a multi-use trail from Franklinville and Ellicottville trail systems to the Pat McGee Trail. • More ADA-accessible trails including widening the Allegheny River Valley Trail and paving the Pat McGee Trail. • Create a comprehensive signage system for the trails. Plans for marketing the trails to the public and setting up trail events. • Incorporate an economic development strategy into the local trail plans.

Body armor donated to Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office K9

K-9 Nichols, a 2-year-old German shepherd of the Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office, works to protect and serve our county. This spring, Nichols will be protected himself by a bullet- and stab-protective vest thanks to a charitable donation through a nonprofit organization, Vested Interest in K9s Inc. Nichols’ vest is sponsored by a fundraiser hosted by Cattaraugus-Little Valley School District and will be embroidered with “Gifted by Cattaraugus Little Valley School District.” Delivery is expected within several weeks. Vested Interest in K9s is located in East Taunton, Mass., and its mission is to provide protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies throughout the United States. The nonprofit was established in 2009 to assist law enforcement agencies with this potentially lifesaving body armor for four-legged K-9s. “I am so grateful to the Cattaraugus Little Valley School District and Vested Interest in K9s for helping me keep Nichols safe,” Deputy Tim Pence, K-9 handler. “The sheriff’s office is proud to serve such thoughtful members of our community.” Vested Interest in K9s has provided more than 3,300 protective vests in 50 states, through private and corporate donations, at a value of $5.7 million. The program is open to dogs actively employed in the U.S. with law enforcement or related agencies who are certified and at least 20 months of age. The donation to provide one protective vest for a law enforcement K-9 is $950. Each vest has a value between $1,744$2,283; a vest’s average weight is 4 to 5 pounds. In December, Sheriff Timothy Whitcomb announced the deputization of Nichols, who started training with Pence

No other community can offer nearly a dozen musical acts within a fourblock area in only two days. With a wide range of venues, there is always something for everyone. Brian McFadden, chamber director, said with the success of Winter Blues Weekend, they spoke to all of the music venues in the village last year and asked if they would like to do another event. “Our intention is to provide options for those who do not ski to visit Ellicottville for a mini-vacation, hence the two-day event,” he said. “It also gives day trip skiers/boarders a reason to maybe spend the night. With all of the great entertainment in the village, it would be a shame that they wouldn’t find a way to capitalize on it. McFadden said this year, there are so many acts that would like to play in

Friday, Feb. 22:

Ellicottville that it’s hard to choose. “It’s the weekend after Presidents’ Weekend, which is huge in Ellicottville and a sellout,” he continued. “Last year, we built this new event for the weekend after which is typically a slower weekend. The event was an overwhelming success — almost equal to President’s Weekend.” A number of different musical acts are expected to perform over the weekend offering a variety of musical genres for people’s listening pleasure. Over the two-evening span, Winter Music Jam will feature bands at Madigan’s, Balloons, Villaggio, The Gin Mill and the Ellicottville Brewing Company (EBC). For any changes or updates, visit or call the chamber at 699-5046.

Two parcels recommended for county’s agriculture district

By Rick Miller

in April. Nichols is a dual-purpose K-9 trained in narcotics and patrol and certified in tracking and article search; he and Pence are part of the Special Response Team of the sheriff’s office and they have helped the Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force on several cases. Nichols is the first K-9 exclusively assigned to an actual road patrol position for the sheriff’s office. Pence and Nichols train one day a week and they collaborate with all of the other K-9 teams in the surrounding counties for the training. Nichols is named after late Undersheriff Billy Nichols, who passed away in 2015 after 30 years of law enforcement service. For more information on Vested Interest in K9s, call (508) 824-6978 or log on to The organization accepts tax-deductible donations through its website, or they can be mailed to P.O. Box 9, East Taunton, Mass., 02718.

For the first time in three years, the Cattaraugus County Agriculture and Farmland Protection Board approved the addition of two farms totaling 180 acres in Allegany and Machias, respectively. Agriculture District Law protects farming operations against what are considered unreasonable local regulations unless public health is threatened. It can also provide benefits that help keep farming economically viable and keep land in active agricultural use. Farmers can also save on property taxes under agricultural assessments, but being in an agricultural district is not necessary. An owner of at least seven acres of land which produces at least $10,000 a year, or less than seven acres with production

of $50,000 or more is eligible to be included in an agricultural district. The County Legislature will hold a public hearing in March before considering adding the new parcels the Cattaraugus County Agriculture District No. 5, said county planner Paul Bishop. Those acres will bring the number of acres under consolidated agriculture district status in the county to more than 239,500 acres, or between 28 percent and 30 percent of the land in the county outside Allegany State Park and the Seneca Nation territories, Bishop said. One of the parcels being considered for addition to the agriculture district is a 130-acre parcel on Morgan Hollow Road in Allegany. The owners began last year with laying hens and plan to expand to mushrooms and berry

bushes this year. In Machias, a Riceville Road resident asked to include 50.4 acres where a community-supported agricultural project is planned. The board re-elected David Zilker chairman and Barbara George vice chairman. Crystal Abers, director of the county Department of Economic Development, Planning and Tourism, said plans for the annual FarmerNeighbor Dinner in April are well underway. Officials are currently looking for a speaker for the event which draws more than 300 residents to the West Valley Fire Department Banquet Facility. Abers also said any agriculture projects for the next round of the state Consolidated Funding Application would be welcomed. An open house on the new grant applications featuring state officials will be held March 13 at Olean Business Development. In another development, Richard Rivers, executive director of the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Cattaraugus County, said a meeting with county lawmakers will be held later this month to seek funding to add an agriculture specialist. The specialist would become part of an agriculture team in counties across Western New York, Rivers said. The Extension is also working on a Farm-toSchool program to provide locally-grown fresh vegetables to cafeterias in Franklinville and Hinsdale, he said.

FEBRUARY FUN Continued from front page

Many different acts are expected to perform over the weekend offering all different kinds of music for people’s listening pleasure, as opposed to Blues and Jazz. All the venues will have live music that weekend, but there’s always lots of great live entertainment in Ellicottville every weekend. Also on Friday is Ladies Day at Holimont, which will be shinier than ever. Show up in your favorite metallic outfit, costume or character. There will be door prizes and raffles, prizes for best costumes and more. Local DJ Spencer will be onsite and attendees can participate in the air band/lip sync contest. Visit holimont. com for more information. This Friday at Holiday Valley is also Telestock, a day of peace, love and telemark skiing at the Yodeler champagne Sundeck. There will be free tele demos and special lift ticket rates for

participants. For more information, call the City Garage at 699-2054 City Garage. The fun continues Saturday at HoliMont Ski Resort with its inaugural “Frosty CX” fat bike race comes to the resort Feb. 23. The new, non-skiing event features hardy souls who set out to conquer the snow on their fat bikes, which are basically mountain bikes with humungous tires that are made for snow. The event gets its name Frosty from winter and the CX from cyclocross. This first-time event for the area will be a fat bike race in a cyclocross race format which allows the spectators to see most of the race. Loud Performance Products from Bemus Point will be bringing out their SnowDog groomer to help get the course in tip-top shape. Participants may register for the FROSTYCX 19 -

Fat Bike Multi-Lap Race online at On the day of the race, registrations will begin at 12:30 p.m. at the bottom of HoliMont’s Sunset Slope. Racing starts at 1:15 p.m. at the bottom of Sunset. An impromptu party will be held with beer tastings sponsored by 42 North Brewing Company, in East Aurora. He said people are asked to bring snacks of their choice. It will be outside with group rides up to the shelter for those interested. Also Saturday is the annual Penguin Paddle at Holiday Valley. The slide features hundreds of fun-loving people who put on a helmet and don a black garbage bag, then slide down Yodeler Slope on their bellies like a penguin to raise money for Holiday Valley’s Lounsbury Adaptive Ski Program (LASP).
