Canoe or Kayak Area’s Scenic Waters Glimpse Eagles, Ospreys and Other Wildlife It’s beginning to feel like summer. Finally. The temperatures are warming up and so is the water. It’s time to grab the paddles and jump in. Here are some of the best places to take your canoe or kayak to cool off this season. Allegheny River: One of the best sections of this river to float is from the Kinzua Dam down to Warren, Pa. This portion of river is 6.5 miles of great scenery and gentle flow. This float makes for a relaxing day since it requires very little thinking because of the lack of big rocks or rapids. This also makes it very beginner friendly for anyone new to the sport. This section follows PA Route 59 through the Allegheny National Forest. The potential is high for viewing eagles, ospreys, and other wildlife, including the occasional black bear or whitetail deer crossing the river. Allegheny Outfitters is located in Warren, Pa., and offers boat rentals along with a shuttle service for this float. They also offer options for longer floats to locations further down river. Clarion River: The Clarion River is another watershed that runs through portions of the Allegheny National Forest. The closest option for this river is from Ridgeway, Pa., down to Portland Mills boat ramp. This section is roughly 8.5 miles with nothing but forest along its banks. There is very little development along this section and is also another great float for viewing wildlife. Many birds of prey, deer and turkey frequent this area. The Clarion is a much smaller river compared to the Allegheny, so you may have to pay attention for some rocks and shallow gravel bars depending on how

Finnegan’s Wake

A Fundraiser for the Jefferson Street Cemetery By Stephanie Keis Timblin

raise funds for the continued restoration of the Jefferson Street cemetery. The cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012 through the dedicated efforts of the committee. Established in 1817, the cemetery was the first to serve the Village of Ellicottville and contains over 400 burial plots, several of which are considered “paupers graves.” The committee plans to purchase a monument to honor those laid to rest without stones or markers. “Finnegan’s Wake” is an Irish ballad that became a music hall tradition in the 1850s. The song “Finnegan’s Wake” is known to be a staple of the Irish folk music group The Dubliners, and was most recently recorded by Irish-American Celtic punk band the Dropkick Murphy’s. In the traditional version, Tim Finnegan is born “with a love for the liquor,” falls from a Gail Carucci, Bob McCarthy, and Mary Elizabeth ladder, breaks his skull and is thought to be dead. The mourners at his wake become rowdy and Dunbar at the Jefferson Street Cemetery.

In cooperation with the Ellicottville Rotary and the volunteer members of the Jefferson Street Cemetery Restoration and Preservation project, led by local philanthropist Robert McCarthy, a truly unique and Irish whiskeyinfused fundraiser will be held on Friday, July 19 at the Gin Mill, in downtown Ellicottville, to

New Summer Music Festival Lineup Get ready for Friday, July 5 of the Ellicottville Summer Music Festival with a completely different event than Ellicottville has ever hosted before. The Mountain of Laughs “ A HILL-

arious Event” sponsored by the Lucille Ball Comedy Festival has just added two new acts and an MC to their already stellar lineup. The star comedian Tammy Pescatelli, winner of Comedy Central’s Stand-up Showdown and finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing 2, will be headliner for the “Mountain of Laughs” evening. Considered by her national following as “the kind of woman you wish was your sister or best friend,” Tammy has borrowed from her rich Italian upbringing in Cleveland, to share advice on everything from drinking tips to ways of keeping you grounded … all the while making sure the laughs are coming from good clean humor.

Great Valley Assessments Accurate After Revaluation

By Jann Wiswall

In 2011, the Town of Great Valley received the results of a revaluation of property assessments of all parcels in the municipality. The last revaluation had not been done since at least 1954 when records started being kept. Great Valley’s board had

been advised for decades by the town’s assessors, county officials and others to undertake the long-overdue revaluation. Although they can be grueling, expensive and time-consuming, revaluations are important to ensure that taxpayers are not paying more or less than their share

of municipal, county, fire department and school taxes. Unfortunately, they also can be unpopular among taxpayers who fear an increase in taxes. The board ultimately realized that the benefits far outweighed the risks. The result of the revaluation, See GV Assessments page 7

Ellicottville Reviews East Tank Town’s EQ Rate Remains at 100 Percent By Jann Wiswall

The Town of Ellicottville’s Board was encouraged Wednesday evening by a presentation from Dennis Fisher, Customer Relationship Manager of the State’s Office of Real Property Tax Services (ORPTS). Fisher reported that the town once more has a 100 percent Equalization (EQ) Rate for 2013-14. The EQ rate is a measure used by the state to ensure that municipalities

assess properties at full market value in order to equitably distribute school and county taxes. A 100 percent EQ rate is the gold standard of EQ rates. In addition to the presentation from ORPTS, the board was updated on a number of projects by Supervisor John Burrell. Burrell reported that the new courtroom at the Extension Service Building is nearing completion and renovations

of the auditorium are going smoothly. The budget will not allow for complete renovation of the restrooms in the building, however Burrell is pursuing outside funding in order to make those and other potential renovations. Burrell also reported that he had received a letter from the Teamsters giving notice that the union intends to amend its bargaining agreement by the See Town East Tank page 8

Mansfield Reviews Town Insurance Policy Reappoints Assessor

You don’t have to travel far to enjoy a carefree day at the beach. Allegany State Park (ASP) offers two spacious public beaches only minutes from Ellicottville! Quaker Lake, the largest of the lakes within the park, offers a beautiful beach, complete with a large bathhouse, a large grassy area, a playground, and a sandy beach to spread out with your picnic blanket and beach umbrella. There’s plenty of parking as well as a concession stand for hungry guests. The beach area is roped off and supervised, and there is a jumping platform for advanced swimmers. Canoes, kayaks, and nonmotorized boats are welcome in Quaker Lake, but you must bring your own. There is a good launch point to the side of the beach and it’s an ideal way

to experience the tranquility of the lake. “We really enjoy the beach at Quaker Lake,” said Emily Lineen, 36, of Hamburg. “There’s a lot of space to sprawl out, and the playground is right there for when the kids need a break from the water.” Red House Lake also has a popular beach. Like its counterpart on the other side of the park, it offers sand, sun, and supervised swimming. Red House Lake boasts a lot of shady areas for napping after a few hours of swimming. On hot summer days, families can be seen sitting on the grass behind the sand and out of the sun. Winding around Red House Lake is a paved bike path, perfect for an afternoon stroll. Visitors can also navigate the lake via boat by renting paddleboats and canoes at the

nearby boathouse. This is a great way to see the hidden coves and peninsulas jetting into the lake. In addition, the concession stand offers ice cream and other goodies, perfect for a lazy or active summer afternoon. “My family loves going to Red House Lake on weekend summer days,” said Claire Gaul, 49, of Springville. “It’s a short enough drive that it makes a great day trip, and there’s so much to do while we’re there. We also love all the shady areas, which you can’t find at many area beaches!” In addition, Red House Beach will host the sixth annual Full Moon Family Beach Party on Friday, Aug. 9, starting at 6 p.m. This free event will feature live music, face painting, kids’ crafts, a lifeguard competition, a limbo contest, fireworks and more.

If you need another reason to visit the ASP beaches, this free night of family fun is it! The Cattaraugus County Arts Council, in collaboration with ASP, will be holding a fundraising auction at the Beach Party to support arts programming in the park. Talented local artists have turned camp signs, picnic baskets, campstools and walking sticks into works of art. Bring a little extra money and you could go home with a one-of-a-kind treasure. Whether you go to relax, splash around in the water, build sandcastle or just sit on a blanket and enjoy time with friends, take a drive to ASP in the upcoming months and enjoy some of the area’s best summertime fun. Starting this weekend, both beaches will be open 7 days a week, from 11 a.m.–6:45 p.m.

Free Fishing Days in NYS

Visit Our Gift Shop, Open 7 Days a Week!

Did You Know? ASP has two 18 hole miniature golf courses. One is located between the Red House beach and boathouse. The other is located next to the Quaker store and Museum. It’s a bargain to play, and the retro decor makes for great photo ops!

No License Required June 29–30 Each year, the last full weekend in June is designated as Free Fishing Days in New York State. During those two days, anyone can fish New York State waters and no fishing license is required. This event started in 1991 to allow all people the opportunity to sample the incredible fishing New York State has to offer. Since no license is required, it is the perfect time to take a friend or relative fishing. In 2013, New York State’s Free Fishing Days are Saturday and Sunday, June 29 and 30. This is the perfect

opportunity to try fishing for the first time or take a friend or relative fishing. With more than 7,500 lakes and ponds and 50,000 miles of rivers and streams, there are plenty of places to try fresh water fishing in New York. Saltwater anglers may also fish in marine waters or for migratory marine fish species without enrolling in the Recreational Marine Fishing Registry. In addition to the June Free Fishing Days weekend, there are a number of “Free Fishing Events” held in various

locations across the state. Free Fishing Events are DEC sponsored events (such as family fishing clinics) where participants can learn about fish identification, fishing equipment and techniques, fisheries management, angling ethics and aquatic ecology. Each of DEC’s nine regions can sponsor up to four free fishing events per year. Most free fishing events occur during the period from April through October. For a listing of currently posted events, please go to http://www.dec.ny.gov/

outdoor/27123.html, but be sure to check back periodically to see if additional events have been added. So, first time anglers, as well as those who have drifted away from the sport, should take advantage of this opportunity to see how much fun fishing can be. For more information about Free Fishing Days, call the Buffalo fisheries office at (716) 851-7010 of the Allegany fisheries office at (716) 3720645.

Is it summer yet? I’m not too sure we even had spring, with the exception of a few days. It certainly has been a trying time with excessive rainfall, no rain, warm and hot days, cool and cold nights. Welcome to Western New York! Many of our flowering shrubs may need staking when their blooms become soaked by heavy rainfall. One of these is the willowy wands of the butterfly bush. As gardeners, we work very hard to adjust to some of these bizarre conditions. Hopefully, we can now plant our gardens with the confidence that they will grow and we will be able to harvest our cutting gardens and vegetables before our growing season comes to a close. The rains have certainly watered our lawns and gardens — maybe a little too well — and consequently everything seems to be growing out of control. I can barely keep up with mowing much less the weeding. Speaking of weeding, weeding gardens is best done when the soil is fairly damp, not dry. Weeds can be easily removed with a gentle loosening of the soil around them. Be sure to get the entire root or you will see the weed possibly regrow later in the season. We do have an additional problem this season — the Gypsy Moth caterpillar. This is a destructive insect and has been known to devastate foliage on trees, bushes and in gardens. For information on control, contact the Master Gardener Hotline at (716) 699-2377, ext. 127, Mondays and Wednesdays 9 a.m.–noon. If no one is available, please leave a message with your name, telephone number and a brief description of your problem. A Master Gardener will return your call. Remember to deadhead (pinch off dead blooms) petunias, geraniums, marigolds and

other annuals to keep them blooming throughout the summer and into the fall. Some newer varieties of annuals self-deadhead. Check with your nursery for a description of which annuals fall into this category. Shrubs like rhododendrons and azaleas should be deadheaded as they finish blooming and can be pruned at this time. Enjoy your gardens no matter what size, in-ground or in containers. Wednesdays in the Arboretum Starting July 10, the Master Gardeners of Cattaraugus County will present Wednesdays in the Arboretum starting at 7 p.m. A schedule of sessions will appear in this paper and will be posted in various locations in and around Ellicottville. The sessions are free and are presented rain or shine at the Nannen Arboretum at 28 Parkside Drive in the Village of Ellicottville. Everyone is welcome! This is also the perfect time to walk through the Nannen Arboretum and enjoy the beautiful gardens. There is self-guided tour literature available to enhance your arboretum experience.

Her three sports include Varsity Volleyball, Basketball and Softball, and she has served as Team Captain in both volleyball and basketball. In her community, Madison has been a peer tutor, a member of the Ellicottville Rotary Foundation for Youth, and assists in cleaning up the Ellicottville community after the many festivals. On the volleyball court, Madison has been named a 1st Team All-Star, League MostValuable-Player, 2nd Team All Western New York and 2nd Team All New York State; on the basketball court, she has been named a 1st Team All

Star and Defensive MVP; On the Softball field, Madison was a 2nd Team All Star and a recipient of the Golden Glove Award. Madison has also received other athletic honors including being a Channel 4 Athlete of the Month, a Channel 7 Super Seven Athlete of the Week, and a member of the scholar athlete team for both the varsity volleyball and basketball teams. Madison will graduate sixth in her class at Ellicottville Central School with a cumulative grade point average of 104.82 percent. She has been accepted to Alfred State College and will major in Sports Management. She received an Academic Excellence scholarship from Alfred State, where she will also play college volleyball. Mark J. Ward, Ellicottville Central School superintendent said, “When you look at her personal resume of honors, awards, school participation, work and community service, her accomplishments and involvement are absolutely astonishing! In my 38-plus years as an educator, I have never seen a student with such a broad range of athletic, academic and community achievement. Madison, without a question, is one of the most

well-rounded and diversified student-athletes Ellicottville has ever produced.” Scholarship winner Madison Szpaicher said, “I’m humbly honored and excited to receive this scholarship. A huge-overthe-top thanks to those who chose me for the scholarship. The funds will make a huge difference and are deeply appreciated as the smell of fall and college costs come rolling in. I’m in awe of the abundance of blessings I’ve been receiving.” The New York Conference of Italian American State Legislators is a bipartisan organization of New York State Assembly and Senate members of Italian descent. The Conference mission is to highlight Italian-American contributions to the State of New York and to promote Italian heritage and culture. The conference holds an annual Italian Festival at the Capitol and sponsors the college scholarship competition. This is the third scholarship winner from Assemblyman Joseph Giglio’s Assembly District since his tenure in the Assembly commenced in 2005. Szpaicher is one of four scholarship winners selected by an anonymous panel of professors from SUNY Albany.

The Varsity Softball team finished its regular season with a 7-9 record. The Eagles recorded victories over West Valley, Clymer, Sherman and Brocton. These league wins placed the team in 4th place in league and a No. 5 seed in playoffs where we faced Ripley. The ladies learned the joy of winning and how to handle close losses to Franklinville, North Collins and Ripley.

HOW TO GET TEENAGERS EXCITED ABOUT FISHING

BY JEFF MARTIN

Facing a vacation, sometimes the best planners f ind themselves at a loss over what to do. I found myself facing this challenge last week when, as it happens every year, I was faced with seven days off from my regular job and overwhelmed as to what to do with myself. Making it even more diff icult was the fact that I had my two sons with me and I didn’t want to disappoint and bore them. Because I’m getting back into f ishing and wanting my boys to have the same interest, we spent the f irst day trying to f ind a good place to throw in a line. A family member of mine suggested that I take the boys to the Randolph Hatchery, where the state facilitates the hatching of about 100,000 pounds of f ish annually. It was an overcast, rainy day (a typical start to a vacation!) when we pulled into the parking lot. There was not a soul to be seen. Arranged in single f ile were several cement lagoons, some with steel roofs, prog ressing to a much larger lagoon. Getting out of the car, we marched over and looked into the inky, black water and, as is often the case when f irst seeing them, were amazed at the g reat beauty of the rainbow trout. Looping and coasting along in the water, the g reat rainbow trout f lashed their colorful bodies with g reat enthusiasm. Some appeared longer than my arm. My youngest son let out a cry of excitement and that’s no easy task; he’s often diff icult to excite. We stood there together and watched the g reat f ish, and it wasn’t long until we were walking up and down the property, glancing into each lagoon. There were rainbow trout in adult stage and much younger ones, too — seemingly millions of them. Beside the rainbow there were brown trout, again in various lagoons and in various stages of g rowth. The brown trout appeared far more vigorous and strong, as were the brook trout, who slapped the water with anticipation as we walked near. It wasn’t long until my youngest asked if we could feed them. I found one of the men who worked there and asked for some change so that we could f ill a plastic cup. He vanished inside a building and brought out a large pail half full of pellets, asking only that we share with the other couple who had arrived. The feeding frenzy that ensued excited even my oldest son, a teenager who has diff iculty showing any enthusiasm if it doesn’t deal with teenagerly matters. He called the swimming f ish “g raceful” and “peaceful,” though peaceful isn’t the work I would use when describing the moment when he dumped a cup full of pellets into the brook trout lagoon. The f ish twirled and jumped and smacked the water surface, eating as if they had never eaten before. I spoke to the man in the garage and inquired about some local places in which to f ish. He told me of some, commenting that bring ing children to hatcheries is a good way of getting children interested in f ishing. “It lets them see the f ish,” he said. “Kids need to see f ish to get interested in f ishing. I don’t blame them.” A couple of days later we would f ish outside Cattaraugus village on Route 353. My youngest caught a few sunf ish, as did my oldest. A day after we f ished at Holcomb’s Pond, which is part of the Zoar Valley system. My oldest caught a largemouth bass and, again, my youngest hauled in several sunf ish. I truly think that the hatchery was a big part of their interest in f ishing. There are 12 hatcheries within the state of New York, several of which are located in Western New York. I urge you to visit one. For more information about them, call the Randolph Hatchery at (716) 358-4755 or visit www. http://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor.

swing, ripped his pants, fell down and made a noise that frightened the “Adopt Me Dog of the Week.” Dr. Madan Katria of Mumbai, India, believed laughter played such a vital role in boosting the morale of people living in the slums of Mumbai that he started a laugh club. Each person brought a piece of humour and the hysterical response of the group produced better benefits than therapy. In the workplace, laughter lightens the mood and boosts morale, thus reducing stress. Humour in a place of business creates camaraderie among employees and wards off burnout. Most employees rate a pleasant and happy work environment higher than a wage increase when listing reasons they like their job. But you have to be very careful. Humour is perilously subjective. As American humourist Ray Blount Jr. was fond of saying: “A good joke is like a hefty sneeze. If it’s any good at all, somebody’s going to get some on them.” Choose your victims wisely. The best victim of humour is always you. Self-deprecating humour, poking fun at yourself is a solid and safe form of humour. The next best victim is us. All of us. Observational humour

that takes all of us to task for our human foibles is safe by inclusiveness. The biting satirist Mark Twain was funny but inoffensive because he held all humans to the same (low) standard. “Familiarity,” said Twain, “breeds contempt … and children.” Twain’s stress-reducer? “When angry, count to four. When very angry swear.” To get more laughter in your life and humour in your workplace, be creative. Some hospitals in the States have “humour carts” full of everything from rubber chickens to water pistols to remind the sick that fun should be part of their healing program. Proudly, Canada funds a group called “Clowns Without Borders,” high powered executives who on their own time and dime, don clown costumes in war zones around the world to teach children how to smile and laugh again. Laughter, a weapon of mass resurrection. Nearly a century and a half ago, President Abe Lincoln understood the benefits of humour. “Gentlemen,” he said to his cabinet members, “Why don’t you laugh? With the fearful strain that is with me night and day, if I did not laugh, I should die.”

On what was once a peaceful planet and now appears to be our solar system’s biggest crime scene — the world is in need of humour. Whereas laughter was once a bit of a bonus, it is now a vital ingredient to a happier, healthier life. No longer a luxury, laughter has become a necessity today. Given the complex workings of the human body, the immediate benefits of a good bout of laughter are quite remarkable. First, the heart rate drops and blood pressure eases off. More oxygen is added to the blood and then endorphins are released in the brain characterized as a “natural high.” A calmness takes over the brain assisted by the fact that when you’re laughing you can’t possibly be worrying. Studies show that laughter boosts the immune system helping to fight off infection. People who laugh a lot get fewer colds and have a higher tolerance of pain because of the immunoglobulin produced in the process. But it’s got to be a good laugh, eh? Not a tepid ha ha — “don’t bend over in the garden, Granny, you know them taters have eyes” — kind of laugh. This is the kind of belly laugh you get while retelling the story of how your husband while teeing off at the Humane Society Golf Tournament took a mighty

Fourth of July weekend is a busy time in Ellicottville. Besides the hustle and bustle of the village activities, visitors and residents alike can enjoy the Ellicottville Championship Rodeo, located at 6319 Somerville St., where the Rodeo Team says, “the road ends and the West begins.” The rodeo is celebrating its 25th year bringing the Wild West to the Enchanted Mountains. “When I was a kid, I always wanted to ride in rodeo events, but I wasn’t allowed to,” said John Kent, founder of the Ellicottville Championship Rodeo. “So when I was old enough, I enlisted the help from my friends in the stable business and started up the rodeo.” “This is the biggest rodeo event in the Northeast,” continued Kent. “We’re expecting over 500 cowboys, coming from everywhere from Canada to Texas and Oklahoma.” The weekend event will bring in these athletes for nine standard rodeo events, including bareback bronc riding, saddle bronc riding,

calf roping, team roping, team penning, junior bull riding, steer wrestling, girls’ barrel racing and big-bull riding. The event also features a rodeo clown, and in the spirit of the holiday weekend, there will be fireworks after the Thursday, Friday and Saturday night shows. The fun doesn’t end there! There is also a kids’ stick horse race, where kids 10 and under can bring a stick horse and be part of the rodeo action. Stick horses are also available for purchase at the Rodeo Tack Shop. Registration for this event takes place before the rodeo. “The kids’ stick horse race is a real crowd pleaser,” said Kent. Gates open two hours before

the rodeo begins so guests can enjoy the midway, full of great food that includes a chicken barbecue. “We’re expecting the 25th year to be our biggest one yet,” Kent said. “Our team has worked hard again this year to bring this great family tradition back to Ellicottville.” This unique event takes place on July 4, 5 and 6 at 7 p.m., and on July 7 at 2 p.m. Admission is $17 for adults, $9 for children ages 12 and under, and free for children under age 5. Pre-sale tickets are available until June 30, and tickets will also be available at the gate the day of the shows. For pre-sale tickets and for more information, visit www. EllicottvilleRodeo.com.

Continued from Front Page

not surprisingly, changed the assessments of many properties in the town. Some went up and others went down due to changes in market trends — overall, the townwide assessment went down by a few percentage points. How Revals Differ from Annual Assessments It is important to keep in mind that a revaluation is different from an annual reassessment by the local assessor. During annual reassessments, the town assessor analyzes all the municipality’s parcels to determine which assessments need to be changed from the previous year based on market values and physical changes to the property. New construction on a property and new homes and businesses are added to the assessment roles. Demolished buildings or deteriorating conditions of a home or business might result in a reduction to its assessed value, and many other factors come into play as well. A revaluation involves a much more detailed and long-term analysis that aims to correct over- or underassessment of property that has occurred over time by more accurately reflecting longterm market values and trends of the entire municipality. Typically, revaluations are done by consultants who have access to more robust trending and historical data that leads to more accurate assessments. New York State does not require municipalities to conduct revaluations, but most do with much more frequency than Great Valley had done. Why are Revals Important? According to the State Office of Real Property Tax Services (ORPTS), revaluations are important because they ensure that taxpayers are equitably treated. According to ORPTS, “The longer it has been since a municipality has updated assessments, the more likely it is that some taxpayers are paying more or less than their fair share of taxes.” As a result, says Dan Martonis, director of Real Property Tax Services with

Cattaraugus County, people in Great Valley now have a much more accurate picture of where their properties stand in terms of market value, which is especially important for anyone interested in selling or improving their home or property. For 2013, Great Valley Supervisor Dan Brown said the state has determined that property assessments must be reduced by another 7-8 percent based on further analysis of the market in the two years since the revaluation. But this does not necessarily mean that individual’s taxes in Great Valley will go down. Why? It is important to remember that assessors do not determine property tax rates or bills. They determine property value based on location, comparable property sales and other market factors. The assessments they determine do, however, provide a first essential number in the complicated calculation of a property bill. Two other numbers also come into play. Defining Equalization Rate The first is the equalization rate (EQ), a figure introduced by the state in the 1970s. According to ORPTS, an EQ rate is necessary for the hundreds of school districts and counties that do not share the same taxing boundaries as the cities and towns that assess properties. In order to distribute school district or county taxes among multiple municipalities, the level of assessment of each municipality must be equalized by the state to full market value. Before the revaluation, Great Valley had a frighteningly low EQ rate of 1.7 percent. The state encourages municipalities to have an EQ rate of 100 percent — meaning the assessed value of municipal property equals the market value of that property. In Great Valley, this low EQ rate meant that, essentially, many property owners were significantly subsidizing their neighbors’ taxes. It also was creating difficulties for

property owners who wanted to take bank loans to make improvements and for potential buyers and sellers who depended on appraisals to get mortgages. Simply put, lenders did not trust the appraisals they were getting for properties in Great Valley. “We knew we had to get our EQ rate to 100 percent, because we had to make our assessments as accurate as possible,” said Brown. “It’s all about fairness. Some people were paying woefully more or less than they should.” County Tax Rate Affects Tax Bill The second number that determines a tax bill is the county-established tax rate. This is calculated by how much must be raised through taxes to pay for the school district and county budgets after all other non-tax sources of revenue have been subtracted. Using the EQ rate, the county calculates how much each municipality owes based on its total assessed value, and then uses the individual assessments to calculate each property owner’s tax bill. The 2013-14 tax rates will be announced in July. Just because Great Valley’s property assessments changed in 2011 and are coming down again in 2013, one cannot assume that individual property owners tax bills will come down by the same or any percent for a number of reasons. Great Valley’s students attend either ECS or Salamanca schools. School taxes differ by school district and both budgets have gone up by small percentages. Great Valley’s municipal budget increased 1 percent, and county taxes also are likely to increase. While taxes can’t be predicted until all final budgets are announced and tax rates are approved in July, Brown noted that residents can at least be certain that, from a municipal level, Great Valley has worked to ensure their assessments are fair, equitable and based on reliable data.

Head, Heart, Hands, and Health are the four Hs in 4-H, and they represent the four values members work on through fun and engaging programs. The four Hs lend themselves to the 4-H pledge, “I pledge my Head to clearer thinking, my Heart to greater loyalty, my Hands to larger service, and my Health to better living, for my club, my community, my country, and my world!” 4-Hers in Cattaraugus County have a busy summer ahead. It’s fair season, which means kids are making sure 4-H educational requirements are fulfilled. They’re also planning for their time at the Cattaraugus County Fair, being held this year July 29–Aug. 4. In preparation for the fair, local 4-Hers are selling raffle tickets for two $100 gas cards. The drawing will be held on July 22 and tickets can be purchased from any area 4-H member or from the office at 28 Parkside Dr. in Ellicottville. Proceeds will go to the new 4-H snack stand at the Cattaraugus County Fair. “We’re very excited about our new Snack Shack that will be at the fair this year,” said Krista Humbert, 4-H senior resource educator. “4-Hers will be manning the stand and proceeds will go toward our programs.” The 4-H market sale, in which animals that 4-H participants have raised are

sold for meat, will be held at the fair on Saturday, Aug. 3. “The market sale gives 4-H kids an opportunity for showmanship in the ring and allows them to present a story about their experience raising that animal,” Humbert said. Fair visitors can also look for senior 4-Hers dressed in green vests at the fair. They will be ready to answer your questions about the animals and about 4-H programs. Although this time of year a lot of 4-H activity is focused on animals, there are many other opportunities for kids with other interests. “In addition to animal 4-H groups, other 4-H groups are dedicated to focusing on things like crafts, science, technology and math,” explained Humbert. “We also offer programs such as bridge making clinics with engineers.” The 4-H bridge making clinic was so successful this year, that Jacob Ploetz, a member of West Valley’s Clever Clover 4-H group, took first place for his bridge

design in the 2013 Kenneth T. Rybarczyk Memorial Model Bridge contest held at the Wellsville Campus of Alfred State College in April. In addition, new programs are always being developed based on the interests of members. “We’re currently looking for adult volunteers to help develop outdoor shooting sports programs,” said Humbert. “We’ve had a lot of interest and just need volunteers to make it happen. We’ll provide training.” Cattaraugus County 4-H offers such diverse opportunities that there’s sure to be a group that’s a good fit for every youth. Children ages 5-7 are eligible for Cloverbuds, and children to young adults ages 8-19 are eligible for 4-H. New groups are currently being formed. For more information about joining 4-H or to volunteer, contact Krista Humbert at (716) 699-2377, ext. 121, or email kah248@cornell.edu.

Ellicottville East Tank Project Continued from Front Page

end of the year. Highway Department Head Dave Golley said that his department has been very busy digging ditches, cutting shoulders, patching potholes and keeping up with other summer projects. Town Engineer Mark Alianello reported that the Glen Burn subdivision infrastructure construction is moving along and the Tim Horton’s restaurant is officially under construction. He also gave an update on the East Tank project. Alianello and other officials are proposing to change the location of the tank from a site on a steep hill behind the Extension Service Building to another location around the other side of that hill. Construction at the proposed new site would be simpler,

the tank would not be visible from the village, and the tank would only rise 20 feet above ground, compared to a much taller tank at the other location. While there are many decision makers involved in the project, Burrell proposed that, for timing reasons, the board agree to promote the new site as the best location and to proceed from there. The board also discussed the merits of a steel vs. concrete tank. Board member John Northrup suggested that the decision on the type of tank should be determined after bids are received and that the first action must be to decide on the site. The board agreed. Board member Ken Hinman updated the board on the status of the proposed recreational trail. An open house held at the

Extension Service Building on June 11 was a great success, he said. A good crowd attended the event to learn more about plans and peruse maps of proposed routes. “Community support is strong,” he said. Hinman also noted that, after much discussion with consultants and grant writers, the Trail Committee has learned it will need a government entity to serve as both sponsor and applicant for all grant proposals related to the trail. The board agreed that the Town of Ellicottville, at no cost to it or taxpayers, will serve as that entity. The next meeting of the Town Board will be held on Wednesday, July 17 at 6 p.m.

Five Weeks of Road Construction

Expect Delays on Routes 62 and 39 in Gowanda On June 17, highway paving began on U.S. Route 62 and NY Route 39 in the Village of Gowanda, Erie and Cattaraugus County. As a result, motorists should expect daily intermittent lane closures on U.S. Route 62 and NY Route 39 in both directions. Patrick Snyder

Hoagies Changes Hands, Enhances Menu Selection Family Friendly Atmosphere with Free Wi-Fi by Eva Potter

Dan “Kuk” Kukulka and Jason Woodarek happened to meet at a mutual event a few years ago. The two had a lot in common with Woodarek owning AJ’s on West State Street in Olean and Kuk owning Hoagies in Ellicottville. Naturally, the two hit it off and “talked a lot of shop” that night, so when Kuk called a few months ago to tell Woodarek he was retiring, Woodarek knew an interesting opportunity had just come knocking on his door. A fixture in Ellicottville, Hoagies has been serving pizza and subs from its Monroe Street location over 26 years and Woodarek knew he could continue the tradition while infusing it with his own personal touch. Woodarek, along with his wife Lisa, decided to go for it and bought the restaurant in April 2013. Woodarek said, “Hoagies’ menu is very similar to AJs with pizza, subs, wings and salads. We use the same style roll for subs and our pizza is also made with fresh dough.” When you stop in and check out the menu, you’ll notice some delicious additions to the menu like pitas, calzones and gourmet salads like the Strawberry Field and Paradise. “We are also adding several new steak subs and chicken subs, and we’ve have upgraded the meats with customcut steak, which we grill to perfection for each order,” said Woodarek. “At AJs, we’re known for our steak subs and we hope to bring that same great flavor and consistency to Hoagies.” Customers will be happy to know that the chicken wing subs are still made in Kuk’s style. “Our turkey subs feature premium Butterball meat,” said Woodarek. To add some heat to your sub, he recommends adding their “new, extra-hot crushed pepper relish that is truly one of a kind.” Sides include fries and onion rings, as well as fresh nachos. If you have a sweet tooth, round out your meal

with a variety of cookies. For chocoholics, Hoagies is hoping to add brownies to the menu soon. Next time you’re strolling down Monroe Street, step inside and say “hello.” You’ll be greeted by friendly staff and an updated interior including warm, earth-toned walls and a TV in the dining room. Hoagies even has sidewalk seating for al fresco summertime dining. Woodarek said the restaurant caters to families of all sizes and welcomes customers to the laid-back atmosphere complete with free Wi-Fi. Can’t make it there but have an insatiable craving for a sub with the “werks,” then you’re in luck. Hoagies offers free delivery during lunch and dinner hours. To accommodate demand, Woodarek said, “During ski season we will most likely expand the delivery hours.” Hoagies is still recruiting drivers, cooks and front counter help as they prepare for the summer festivals and upcoming ski season. During peak ski season, Woodarek said he hopes to have around

10 employees. Currently the day-to-day operations are headed by the mother-son team of Suzette Pietras and Brandon Munson. Pietras handles weekday lunches, while Munson covers nights and weekends. Woodarek said, “Both have several years’ experience in the food industry and have been very instrumental in getting the new Hoagies up and running. They pride themselves on making the customers happy with great tasting food and awesome customer service.” Don’t know what to try first? When asked for his menu recommendation, Woodarek enthusiastically responded, “Try the Meat Lovers Calzone with the extra-hot crushed red peppers on it or the steak and sausage sub.” And don’t forget to check out the weekday specials. Restaurant hours are Monday–Thursday, 10 a.m.–9 p.m.; Friday–Saturday, 10 a.m.–10 p.m.; and Sunday, 11:30 a.m.–7 p.m. For phonein orders, call (716) 699-4696. Check out the new menu at www.hoagiesubs.com.

Town of Ellicottville Planning Board Cancels June Meeting The Town of Ellicottville Planning Board meeting scheduled for June 24, 2013, has been cancelled, because there is no new or pending business.

benefits, equipment, etc., and provides extensive liability coverage. The board asked that an additional short-term “builders’ risk” policy be added to cover the new highway barn while it is under construction. In addition, coverage for the old cold storage barn, which was improved in order to serve as a temporary garage after the fire, will be increased to cover those improvements and replacement values of other property and equipment will be adjusted up or down. Miller and the board also reviewed proposed coverage for each town vehicle and made adjustments based on age of the vehicle and replacement value. Further adjustments will be made based on better estimates of values on older vehicles. The board also asked Miller to provide estimates to add liability coverage to four cemeteries in Mansfield. While none of the cemeteries is owned by Mansfield or anyone else, the town has had to take some responsibility for their maintenance (e.g. mowing), Madison Szpaicher

so the board felt it must cover them as well. In the end, the town’s premium — while subject to change due to these requested additions, deletions and adjustments — will total approximately $20,300 when renewed on July 15. This represents about a $1,200 increase over last year. In other business, the board opened sealed bids from three companies for electrical materials needed for the new highway garage. The bid requests had four components: 1) electrical fixtures; 2) generator and transfer switch; 3) 400-amp panel

Rachel Welch

and associated materials; and 3) wire/conduit/receptacles/ switches. Bids from L.A. Hazard & Sons were accepted for components 1 and 2. Maynard’s Electric was awarded the bids for components 3 and 4. In addition to bid awards, the board reappointed Robin Pearl to a new six-year term as town assessor beginning at the end of her current term on Sept. 30, 2013, agreed to write a letter to county legislators in support of a multi-municipality request to rebuild County Road 13, reviewed the town building inspector’s bi-annual status report, and approved a “working supervisor” position for the Town Highway Department to ensure there is supervisory coverage for Hurley when he is not available. There is also an opening in the highway department for a fulltime temporary employee to work through the summer. The next meeting of the Mansfield Board will be held July 15, 2013, at 7 p.m. at the Town Hall.

Health & Fitness: Building the Female Workout Program One of the many reasons I decided to become a personal trainer was because one of my first trainers was a man — a man who trained ALL of his clients like they were men. Now, you know I advocate training hard — following many of the rules men follow to get great results. However, the mistake that some fitness professional make is taking that basic program design approach and applying them to both their male and female clients. The problem is that most women are not looking for large biceps, pronounced pectorals and bulky calves. The majority of women I have trained desire a smaller waist, capped deltoids, a nice back, and shapelier legs and glutes. Most women are not seeking the body of a strongman. They’re seeking the body of a fit, lean, strong woman and that’s quite different than a man’s body. Lifestyle Differences If someone asked me to sum up the conversation differences I have with male versus female clients, I would explain that an average male client works hard, trains hard and rests. A typical female client lives a lifestyle of constant demands and stress, and comes into a workout session and uses that time to vent. Most of my

By Kim Duke neta & afaa Certified Trainer

female clients juggle work, families, housework and so much more. Today’s average female client lacks rest and recovery. Their adrenals are significantly overtaxed and they’re not adapting well to constant stress. Therefore, developing a program that is effective and efficient is the best approach. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a great way to boost fat loss, but not always the best approach for all female clients. Weight training with compound moves and lighter weights can also do wonders to boost metabolism without taxing the body so that it requires days of rest. Most women are multitaskers. They do not have the time to be so sore that they cannot complete the many tasks that lie ahead of them.

Physiological Gender Variance There are also physiological differences in the male and female body that should be considered in program design. Research shows that, on average, women have greater flexibility than men. Female clients also have the consideration of hormonal phases and cycles of their lifespan that men do not have. Pregnancy, postpregnancy, menstruation, premenstruation, menopause, pre-menopause and postmenopause all present hormonal shifts and extreme periods of decreased energy for consideration. Putting it all together Women are complex, definitely unique and varied. With all the physiological differences, they create a very specific puzzle that needs to be carefully pieced together by a professional trainer that understands and appreciates all the shifts and stresses that a female body undergoes month to month. Creating a program for a female requires time, patience and consistency on the part of the client and on the part of the trainer. Results are not guaranteed — they are earned!

together because I haven’t been to the store and “Magic Fridge� doesn’t exist yet. The other night I had the following in my house: quinoa, strawberries (fresh from Thropp Farms), some leftover feta cheese, leftover chicken masala and a garden FULL of mint. (Seems like mint is the only thing thriving in my garden this season.) At any rate, I needed to use up most of the perishable items to make way for grocery day — my fridge is pretty small. I made a salad of sorts with the quinoa, strawberries, cheese and mint. I kept the chicken cold and added a sauce of

Directions: 1. Rinse quinoa well in a fine mesh sieve. Place in a saucepan with two cups of water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, stir and bring heat to low, then cover. Let simmer for 15 minutes or until all water has absorbed. 2. Turn your oven on to 350 degrees. Add a few tablespoons of pine nuts to a cookie sheet. Roast in oven for about 8-10 minutes or until you smell roasted nuts. 3. Whilst quinoa is cooking wash, hull and cut your strawberries. Chop up your mint (you may need to add more if you like a strong mint taste). Crumble up your feta cheese. 4. After quinoa has cooked, fluff with a fork and add strawberries, cheese, pine nuts and mint. Drizzle your olive oil over the top and add some salt and pepper. With your fork mix everything together gently and store in fridge until mealtime. Storm Wilson

The Difference Between Pitch and Chip Shots by James Arbogast Instructor, Mel Sole Golf Schools

People get the pitch and the chip confused most of the time. The chip is a low shot with lots of run out. The pitch is a high shot that lands soft with very little run out. I carry four wedges in my bag â&#x20AC;&#x201D; most people carry two. With four wedges, I have no gaps in distance from 100 yards and into the cup. Since 80 percent of your score is from 100 yards and in, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want gaps in yardage. To hit a good pitch shot, you have to have the proper setup.

First, play the ball forward in your stance off your instep. Then with 80 percent of your weight on the front leg, open your stance up so the feet are left of the target. Use your left arm like the hand of a clock and keep your grip light on the club. Use your arms, not the hands, to take the club back and through. Your hips donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn on the backswing, but you will turn and face the target on the follow through with your belt buckle and chest. Next time you practice, try this setup and shot â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it will save you strokes.
