Routes to Art Studio Tour returns next weekend By Deb Everts

It’s back! On May 18 and 19, the Routes to Art Studio Tour is returning to Cattaraugus County. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. next Saturday and Sunday, art lovers will have the opportunity to visit the studios and hubs of participating artists and artisans throughout the county where they will see the artists at work. This self-guided tour will take visitors on a road trip throughout the picturesque countryside to the artists’ studios and hubs in Cattaraugus, Little Valley, Ellicottville, Salamanca, Olean, West Valley, Gowanda, Franklinville and Irving. Tina Hastings, executive director of the Tri-County Arts Council, said the Routes to Art Studio Tour began in 2008 and took place annually until 2014. The arts council and its artists took a hiatus from Routes to Art after the 2014 studio tour,

she explained, but it was always with the intention to return to the event. According to Hastings, community members have been asking for the return of the event every year since. “We had planned to bring the event back for our 20th anniversary last year, but we had to postpone until this year,” she said. “We’re really hopeful that the event will be well received.” Hastings said they hope to build the event up again. There are13 participating artists this year, but the arts council would love to have more artists join in the future. She said TriCounty Arts is here to help promote artists, so the more who want to join in the better. “Many arts events give artists an opportunity to display their work, but studio tours like Routes to Art give the community and visitors to our county the unique opportunity to visit the place where artists

Cattaraugus County Museum hosts new display on the life of ‘Little Louie’

The Cattaraugus County Museum and Research Library is pleased to announce a new display focusing on the life of Louis H. Wiegand, often known locally as “Little Louis.” Though Louie was born in Cheektowaga, his family moved to a farm in Markhams Corners, in the town of Dayton, when he was 2. It was there, with the exception of the years he traveled as a performer, that he spent most of the rest of his long life. In 1875, at age 20, Louie stood 33 inches tall and weighed 33 pounds. He was apprenticed to a jeweler in Dayton until, while attending a performance of the

American Lilliputian Opera Company in Buffalo, he was spotted by the performers and recruited to a career on the vaudeville circuit. For the next 12 years, Wiegand — known on stage as “Prince Louis” — sang tenor and performed with the company all across the country. He performed twice at the White House. When the American Lilliputian Opera Company broke up in 1887, Louie returned to Markhams Corners and took up tailoring for a while —he made most of his own clothes. After a couple more years of vaudeville and a stint as postmaster of Markhams Corners, he retired to a life of farming.

He was said to have raised the plumpest hens for miles around. “Little Louie” passed away Jan. 2, 1945, in his 90th year. Items in this display include articles of Louie’s homemade clothing, his walking stick and several photographs, many appearing on loan from the Gowanda Area Historical Society. The Cattaraugus County Museum is located in the Stone House, 9824 Route 16, in Machias. Our hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday. For more information, visit museum or call 353-8200.

By Kim Duke With The Happy Half marathon and 5k coming up this weekend, I thought it was perfect timing to discuss the simplest of actions that can change your day and others around you as well: the smile.

It is amazing what a smile can do. Studies consistently have shown that smiling is correlated with better health, stronger relationships and longer life spans. One explanation for the health benefits is that a genuine grin significantly lowers stress. Meaning, you can’t fake a smile to get health and mood benefits. In fact, a study published earlier this year found that forced smiles actually will dampen moods. Try these tactics to cultivate and generate more genuine smiles. Smile more often: If you do this consistently,

others around will find themselves smiling too. Trust me, spend some time with a person who wears a genuine smile and see if it is not catchy. Tap into a memory: Recall just one happy time — a trip, a moment, a kiss — that brings these memories alive in your mind. Rethink your situation: Okay, you work indoors. Look out your windows when the sun is shining, get outdoors and take a walk and smile. Focus on the things in your life that you really appreciate and you should be grinning in no time!

Village of Ellicottville receives state achievement award The New York State Conference of Mayors (NYCOM) has selected the village of Ellicottville as a winner of NYCOM’s Local Government Achievement Award for 2019. The awards program, in its 32nd year, recognized Ellicottville for its Joint Engineering/Public Works Department. “The village of Ellicottville is to be commended for its desire to improve the village through innovation, partnerships and hard work,” said NYCOM President Gary McCarthy, mayor of the city of Schenectady. The village of Ellicottville’s Joint Engineering/Public Works Department is a prime example of successful

municipal collaboration, officials said. The project has not only saved taxpayer money but has improved communication with residents, reduced response times to resident concerns, improved service delivery and is expected to have a positive impact on longterm capital planning and preventative maintenance. “The Joint Engineering/ Public Works Department will benefit Ellicottville for years to come and typifies how municipal officials continue to work diligently to enhance their communities and the quality of life for their residents,” McCarthy said. The award was presented May 5 at NYCOM’s annual meeting in Cooperstown.

Billy Ray Cyrus takes the stage May 18 at casino By Deb Everts

Country music great Billy Ray Cyrus is taking the stage at the Seneca Allegany Events Center Saturday, May 18, when he will perform his hits live at 7 p.m. Cyrus preferred a mullet to a cowboy hat when he first hit the country music scene with his single “Achy Breaky Heart” in 1992. The single became a huge No. 1 hit, which sold over 20 million albums worldwide and dominated the Billboard 200 chart for 17 consecutive weeks. The song was named the Country Music Association’s Single of the Year. The single’s music video spawned a line-dancing trend across the United States. Since his breakout debut 27 years ago, he’s become one of the biggest stars in country music with over 12 studio albums and more than 35 hit singles. According to Billboard magazine, Cyrus’ 10 best songs are “It’s All The Same To Me,” “Achy Breaky Heart,” “Busy Man,” “Ready, Set, Don’t Go,” “Words By Heart,” “In The Heart of a Woman,” “Back To Tennessee,” “When I’m Gone,” “One Last Thrill” and “Some Gave All.” Cyrus has built a career as an actor as well as a singer and songwriter. According to Taste of Country, he’s been an entertainment industry staple through music, theater and television since his introduction as a huge hitmaker in the early 1990s. His “Some Gave All” album enjoyed a

record 17-week run at No. 1, largely due to the popularity of the single “Achy Breaky Heart.” The peak of his career was marked by his album, “Some Gave All,” which also includes the popular ballad “Could’ve Been Me.” The album was the first debut to enter the country charts at No. 1. With more than 20 million records sold worldwide, it’s the best-selling debut album for a male solo artist. His newest album, “The SnakeDoctor Circus,” was released in March. “‘The SnakeDoctor Circus’ album certainly has a lot to say and the music reflects all my influences. My goal has always been to make music that would touch people’s lives around the world. I’m excited about getting the music to the people,” Cyrus said in a press release. TV Guide lists some tidbits about Cyrus. Born in Flatwoods, Ky., Cyrus began singing as a kid with his dad’s Crownsmen gospel quartet. He attended Georgetown College in Georgetown, Ky., on a baseball scholarship, but quit to form a bar band called Sly Dog. For more information about Billy Ray Cyrus, visit Follow him on Twitter and Facebook. Tickets for the May 18 concert may be purchased at any Seneca Resorts & Casinos location, online at, at any Ticketmaster location or ordered by phone by calling 1-800-745-3000.

ECS NEWS & SPORTS Ellicottville students among those recognized at Catt. County NHS dinner By Tom Dinki Last week’s 48th annual Cattaraugus County National Honor Society recognition banquet was attended by some of the area’s brightest and most accomplished students — the kind who likely won’t have much trouble finding fields they excel in. So they were asked to meet another challenge: find a job they’re both good at and enjoy. “Find a job you enjoy doing and you’ll never have to work a day in your life,” said guest speaker Chuck Pollock, referencing the popular quote often attributed to Mark Twain. “Yeah, it’s technically a cliché, but clichés work and endure because they’re true.” About 375 students and educators, representing the 12 National Honor Society chapters in Cattaraugus County, attended the dinner, which was held at Good Times of Olean and sponsored by the Cattaraugus-

Allegany Superintendents’ Association and boards of education throughout the county. From Ellicottville Central School, several students were recognized for their work during their school careers and in National Honor Society. Louisa Benatovich was awarded a $1,000 Betty Pappas Scholarship for her academic achievement and writing ability. Benatovich also received the Scholastic Excellence Award for having the highest combined SAT score on any one test date. Meganne Chapman was named the Outstanding Chapter Member from the Ellicottville NHS. Abigail Sonnenberg was presented the Distinguished Services Award for being the “unsung hero” of Ellicottville’s NHS chapter. Finally, Ginna Hensel was announced as one of 575 NHS Scholarship semifinalists out of more than 11,000 applicants and will receive $3,200 toward her higher education.

Athlete of the Week

Ryan DeKay Baseball

Sophomore Ryan DeKay paced the Ellicottville baseball team to a victory over

Franklinville on Tuesday, April 30, pitching into the seventh inning as the Eagles knocked off the Panthers 6-5. DeKay struck out six batters and he and Wyatt Chudy combined to hold Franklinville to just one run over the last four innings. The Eagles are now winners of three straight at 4-5 before hosting Randolph on Wednesday and playing Panama at St. Bonaventure on Friday.

All the students, in addition to being recognized for their academics and being awarded scholarships, were given parting advice from Pollock, senior sports columnist for the Olean Times Herald. He noted surveys show about 70 percent of Americans are unsatisfied with their jobs and urged students to not become one of them. “Now’s the time for you to start thinking about the 40 to 50 years you have in the workforce,” he said. “If you waste four to five decades of a short life doing a job that makes you miserable, what could be more depressing?” Pollock, who has won 27 New York State Associated Press awards since joining the Times Herald in 1973, gave two simple but important reasons for why he became a sports writer: he was good at writing and enjoyed sports. “Each of you in this room has a skill, something that you do better than most anybody else in this room,” he said. “Your job is to take that asset and turn it into a career because — circumstantially — it’s probably what makes you happy and it’s also what you do best. “And that’s a goal worth shooting for.” FIVE SCHOLARSHIPS of $1,000 each, which honor the originators of the banquet, were awarded to students who competed on academic achievement and writing ability. The recipients were: • Betty Pappas Scholarship — Louisa

How to plant a tree for successful growth

More sunlight and warm temperatures frequently inspire homeowners to spend more time in the great outdoors during spring and summer. Outdoor projects often top homeowners’ to-do lists in spring and summer, with gardens and landscapes taking center stage. Planting more trees around the yard is one popular project that can improve property value and benefit the environment.

Why plant trees? There are plenty of reasons to plant trees. Trees provide a natural form of shade, reducing air temperature by blocking the sun’s rays. This can reduce reliance on air conditioning systems and make it more comfortable to spend time outdoors during the summer. North Carolina State University College of Agriculture & Life Sciences says trees absorb and block noise and reduce glare. They also can trap dust, pollen and smoke. Trees also absorb carbon dioxide and potentially harmful gasses from the air. One large tree can supply a day’s worth of oxygen for as many as four people, while also storing 13 pounds of carbon per year.

if they’re healthy before taking them home. Look for evidence of root girdling, which occurs when the roots circle around the perimeter of the container and surround the trunk. Trees should not have any dead or dormant branches. The DIY Network suggests locating the tree where it can thrive. This means selecting a spot that can make it easier for the tree to grow tall and wide. Avoid planting near the house, where roots can crack concrete or asphalt, and always plant away from underground pipes. Planting the tree Now it is time to amend the soil. It’s not enough to enrich only the soil in the hole where the tree will be placed. Move out into a circular area beyond where the roots

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.

Getting started Visit a garden center or nursery and select a tree that will be hardy in your planting zone. Choosing native trees can increases the likelihood that the new tree will adapt to its surroundings. Also, inspect trees to determine

will start so that roots can expand and properly anchor the tree. The next method of success is to ensure that the tree has a large enough hole to contain the existing root ball and allow for roots to grow and expand. Better Homes and Gardens experts say to prepare a hole that is two to three times as wide as the root ball of the tree. Treat the root ball gently. If the roots are wrapped in burlap, remove the burlap or push it to the bottom of the hole. Backfill the hole with soil and check that the tree is straight. Stake the tree to help it stay upright and straight until the roots anchor it more effectively. A layer of mulch around the base of the tree can prevent weeds and reduce water loss. Water daily for several weeks until the roots have fanned out. It’s best to leave trees be for the first growing season, only removing broken or diseased limbs. Resist pruning and shaping until the tree has survived its first growing season.

At least one passenger in Camp Kids Route 219 crash in serious holding fundraiser condition, hospital indicates By Brian McClellan

An injured man involved in a crash between a pickup truck and a farm tractor on Route 219 was believed to be in serious condition as of Tuesday, May 7. The accident, which was reported at 6:09 p.m. May 6 on Route 219 southbound between Great Valley and Salamanca, resulted in four injuries, according to a Cattaraugus County emergency dispatcher. County officials on May 6 said two people were transported to Olean General Hospital and two were transported to Erie County Medical Center.

According to a family friend who spoke to the Olean Times Herald, Hunter Bishop, of Great Valley, was operating the tractor at the time of the accident. His brother, Austin Bishop, was standing on the power take-off. Both brothers were reportedly transported by Mercy Flight to ECMC. A representative of ECMC stated on May 7 that Austin Bishop had been discharged while Hunter Bishop remained in serious condition. A dispatcher May 7 said further details on the crash would have to be issued by New York State Police, who had not released further information by press time.

The Taylor sisters, Chloe and Nicky, are as different as night and day. As adults the sisters become virtual strangers although at least it appears that they have both found happiness. Now, more than 15 years later, their lives are drastically different and Chloe is now married to Nicky’s ex-husband Adam. When he’s murdered by an intruder at the couple’s East Hampton beach house, Chloe reluctantly allows her teenage stepson’s biological mother, her estranged sister, Nicky, back into her life.

spend so much of their time creating their work,” she said. “These studios are full of creativity, and give guests a chance to really connect with artists, and to ask questions they might not when they just attend a festival booth. Plus, this is a great chance to begin to build a collection of work from your favorite artists.”

NEW ARTIST Eric Holbein said Cattaraugus County is a gorgeous part of the state to wander around this time of year. He said it’s a great time to get out and see the artists in their studios and native environments. “I think the art studio tour is a great thing,” he said. “We’ll be part of reviving something. It’ll be fun and we’re excited to be a part of it.” Holbein, a ceramic artist, said he’s been doing pottery for about 12 years and his focus is on beautiful, functional art. He started the age-old tradition while studying as an art major at Houghton College. Holbein said he fell in love with ceramics when he took a class in his senior year and he’s been doing it ever since. “I’ve always worked a lot with my hands doing landscaping, masonry and carpentry, so ceramics was a unique direction for me. I’m very hands-on so the tactile, 3-D nature of clay really clicked with me,” he said. “I like the whole process of building kilns and firing because it’s really intriguing to me.” Hailing from the Rochester area, Holbein said he learned how to paint with oils when he was 16. After receiving an associates degree in graphic design from Finger Lakes Community College, he decided to get back into a more fundamental education and traditional arts at Houghton. Prior to settling in Cattaraugus, Holbein and his wife lived in Corning and East Africa working with an organization, so he’s been kind of setting up different shops and studios all over the world. Holbein’s current studio, New Albion Clayworks, is located on his wife’s family farm, just outside the village of Cattaraugus. He lives with his wife, Maria, and two-year

old daughter, Illa. The couple is expecting a baby boy in July. “The property was a dairy farm back in the 1950s and ‘60s. It’s currently not a working dairy and we’re raising beef cows now, but it’s still somewhat of a functional farm,” he said. “I converted the old milk parlor into a studio where I’ve worked for a couple of years.” To find out more about Holbein and his ceramic art, visit The event is free, plus each artist will have a raffle box for guests to enter to win one of two baskets of artwork donated by many of the participating artists.
