End of Fall Activities

A Spooky Good Time By Alicia Yeager, ALCS Student Correspondent

There are many interesting Halloween events going on in the area this year, and if you’re up for a good scare, gather some friends and family and get ready for a screaming good time. The Nightmare Hayrides on Sommerville Street in Great Valley is “known to be the scariest haunted attraction of Western New York.” From Oct. 5–28, visitors can get the scare of their lives.

The end of the vivid fall colors is the perfect backdrop for hayrides, hauntings and other ghoulish fun in the Enchanted Mountains.

Mansfield Hires Experts to Handle Fire-Related Insurance Claims

Village Board Meeting The Good, Bad and Ugly of Fall Fest

Declares State of Emergency for Purchasing Purposes

Halloween Trick or Treat Set for 6–8 p.m. October 31

By Jann Wiswall

On Monday, Oct. 15, the Town of Mansfield Board of Directors unanimously carried a motion to enlist the services of National Fire Adjustment Co., Inc. (NFA) to handle the complicated insurance claims process related to the fire that destroyed the town’s highway department building and its contents on Sunday, Oct. 7. NFA representatives Bill Troy and Jim Shephard attended the meeting and explained that its licensed insurance adjusters work as advocates for the policyholder – not the insurance company. They know the insurance industry inside and out and will thoroughly research the town policy’s provisions, stipulations and riders to ensure that Mansfield receives the full settlement to which it is entitled. NFA’s first steps will be work with town officials to: -accurately reconstruct the building exactly as it existed – but on paper – and have their estimators provide a thorough valuation; -inventory all contents of the building, such as tools, machines, supplies, office contents, etc., and assign values to each item;

Sprague’s Safety Concerns at Fillmore Street Garbage Bids Received Mayor Charles Coolidge called the regular meeting of the Village of Ellicottville to order at 6 p.m. on Oct. 15, 2012. The meeting opened with two public hearings on two new local laws: Law 3 addresses the rules and regulations regarding water service to village residents and businesses; Law 4 amends the village procurement policy, the use of best value standards for bids and purchasing equipment, which permits purchasing based on other criteria, not just the lowest price. The public hearings were held open for the duration of the meeting, and since there were no public comments, both motions to accept the laws passed. Several people attended the meeting to discuss the good, bad and ugly of Fall Fest 2012. Before comments from the floor were received, Mayor Coolidge made several comments.

“Fall Fest has been a problem for quite a few years,” he said, citing issues with open containers, public drinking and urination, yelling swearing and fighting. “During the daytime hours, visitors pose no problems – it is the evening, after-dark crowds that create the issues, with more assaults this year than ever in the past.” He did speak up for his Village Constable Gifford and Officer Dunkleman, who walked the village instead of patrolling in cars. “Fall Fest is too big,” commented Coolidge. Comments from the public included wanting to know why more police officers weren’t walking the perimeter and side streets, why 65 busloads of college kids were permitted, and why a call to the police department for a patrol request to rid an area of a large noisy

crowd took three calls to finally get a response. “How do we control the problem?” was asked several times, as well as “Why weren’t violators to the open container law being ticketed?” “It’s not a FESTival any more, it’s a FISTival!” commented one member of the audience. Patra Lowes is a member of the Special Events Committee, and she informed everyone that there will be a meeting on Monday, Oct. 22 at 9 a.m., with all committee members and the public is invited to attend. She asked that people come with positive suggestions and ideas for improving the festival, not just to come to rehash the bad issues. Written comments and suggestions can be sent to Patra Lowes at P.O. Box 413, Ellicottville, N.Y. 14731. “We need to rid ourselves See Village Board Page 5

Point Break Farm Produces Champion Friesians Meijs Receives Second Highest Score in North America

By Sue Whistler

A horse is a horse, of course, of course, unless the horse is a Dutch Friesian. There are only 45,000 Dutch Friesians in the world and just 18 approved stallions for breeding in the United States today. Lisa Williams and her husband Dave started Point Break Farm in 2006 on 100 acres in the hills just a few miles east of Ellicottville. Their goal is to promote and preserve the breed integrity of the Dutch Friesian by breeding, raising and training only the finest representatives of these rare and magnificent animals. For the past six years, the Williams have worked to build their herd of Dutch Friesians through careful breeding and management. Lisa runs the training and breeding programs, while Dave maintains the grounds and all the farm equipment required to care for 100 acres of pastures and wooded trails, a 13-stall barn and 15 horses. Lisa has been a horse enthusiast from childhood. She studied under wellknown horse trainer Kenny Harlow to become a certified trainer in natural horsemanship.

Point Break Farm Friesians

Lisa purchased p her first Friesi Friesian horse in 2000 and b began training them in 2 2004 after training Appa Appaloosa horses for seve several years. She fell in love with their bea beauty, intelligence, gen gentle nature, and nat naturally smooth gait th that Lisa describes as feeling like you’re “ri “riding a feather.” That love affair has blossome blossomed into a successful breeding and training business. Point Break Farm is currently home to 14 Dutch Friesians with five new foals expected next spring. The farm sells four to five horses a year to qualified buyers. The Friesian horse is best known for its majestic and elegant appearance. They have a jet black coat, with a beautiful, full wavy mane, tail and “feathers” that cover their lower legs. Also known as “black pearls,” Friesians were originally used as war and carriage horses and to pull fishermen’s nets full of clams and oysters out of the sea. They are a breed of horse that is native to the Netherlands. Today, the Friesian horse is often seen competing in the equestrian disciplines of dressage and driving. Competitive driving involves hitching a horse to a light, two- or four-wheeled cart and showing them at a walk and two speeds of trot, with an emphasis on manners and maneuverability. Horses may compete singly or as part of a team. Dressage is defined by the International Equestrian Federation as “the highest

expression of horse training,” where “horse and rider are expected to perform from memory a series of predetermined movements,” Dressage is sometimes referred to as “horse ballet” and is a major Olympic equestrian event. Point Break Farm is nationally renowned for breeding and training Friesians for both disciplines. To insure and maintain the integrity of the breed, each new Friesian must be evaluated at a keuring (the process of evaluating individual horses for certain characteristics) by a twojudge panel that is flown in from Holland each year to inspect new candidates and compare them against the breed standard. Lisa recently returned from a major North American competition in Ohio. She entered eight of her Friesians in various competitions in which they were evaluated for the quality of their performance and movement. All eight received high honors with her 8-year-old mare Meijs achieving Grand Champion status in a driving test by earning the second highest score in North America. This is no surprise considering that Point Break Farm Friesians are consistently ranked among the finest in North America.

CCAC Seeks Member Support to Enhance Quality of Life through Arts & Culture

by Eva Potter

The arts and culture scene in the region is vibrant and diverse in large part due to the extraordinary efforts of the Cattaraugus County Arts Council (CCAC). For over 14 years, CCAC has provided free and lowcost regional artistic and cultural opportunities for all ages and abilities. But they can’t continue these programs and services without generous public and member support. To maintain their mission of promoting “the creation, presentation and appreciation of arts and culture in the region, while nurturing education and commerce in the arts,” CCAC is in the midst of its annual fall membership drive and they’re asking for your help. “The arts council is working to raise the profile of arts and culture in our region, and thereby increase quality of life,” said Anne Conroy-Baiter, executive director of CCAC. “I fully realize that not everyone is going to want to take an art class, or participate in Routes to Art, or choose handcrafted holiday gifts, but our goal is that everyone have the choice to do so. Having a vibrant cultural environment as well as great outdoor spaces, plentiful recreation options, and quality learning opportunities allows people to live fully and enjoy life in our beautiful region.” CCAC’s programing and

events expose visitors and local residents to musical and theatrical performances, art classes and camps for kids and adults, multicultural events, artist exhibitions, free workshops, fine art sales, informational workshops, grant funding opportunities, BOCES high school arts enrichment programs, professional development training and marketing support for artists and arts organizations, member shows, family events and more. “One of the most fundamental things CCAC does is to make the connection between the creative economy – artists, galleries, design businesses, performing arts – and economic development. Arts and culture activities can play a major role in economic development, rural revitalization efforts, job growth, and cultural tourism,” Conroy-Baiter explained. For 13 years, CCAC has promoted quality of life through the arts, and as funding sources dry up, membership support has become more important than ever. If you believe arts and culture have a positive impact on life in the region, CCAC invites you to become a member now. Memberships begin at $15 for students to corporatelevel sponsorships, each with increasing member benefits, including discounts at regional businesses, display ads, decals and website links. Every

member coming on board at $30 and above will receive a limited-edition, ready-to-frame print by noted watercolor artist Sean Huntington (www. For every $25 of membership dues, you will receive one raffle chance for a prize package that includes a garden sculpture by ceramic artist Peter Goergen and a pair of 2013-2014 season tickets for the Southern Tier Symphony. The drawing will be held on Jan. 14, 2013. In addition, CCAC members receive nice discounts to some pretty cool art classes. This fall, you can sign up for Creative Ceramics with Audrey Dowling, Origami Paper Sculpture with Robert Taylor, Pottery for the People with Anne Mormile, Practical Foundations of Digital Photography by Joelle Wolters, Creative Journaling with Deb Eck and Paper Sculptures with Patricia Eckstrom. Also, a new series of Saturday morning art classes for kids begins soon. Yet another perk – the CAPS (Community Art and Pottery Studio) Independent Open Studio Program allows members access to open studio sessions to work independently on clay projects.

Checking Out The Tunes & Other Stuff in Ellicottville October 19-25, 2012 7 bands 3 DJ’s 1 karaoke show BY SHERMAN & ROBBY WILKENS

As we enter the last half of October and get closer to Halloween. The leaves are falling and the days are getting shorter, yet all is OK. While we don’t have any really scary places, other than maybe the Nightmare Hayride which is, very much, all ages friendly. Therefore, Ellicottville is, and will be, a safe place for kids and grownups alike to visit and have FUN the remainder of October and beyond. As long as the weather cooperates lets get out and enjoy what is left of summer with a round of golf or a bike ride. For golf, just call either Holiday Valley or Elkdale Country Club make a Tee time. Then get out and enjoy the great golf that is available here at least seven months a year. For a bike ride, pick up a trail map in any of our local outdoor stores. With all the beautiful scenery in our neighborhood it should be easy to plan an enjoyable ride. Adding to the FUN this coming week, which begins today, Friday October 19, 2012, my lovely wife’s Birthday, Happy Birthday Robby, through Thursday October 25, 2012 we will have seven Bands, three DJ’s, one complete with a Karaoke Show, several “All Week Sound System Music Happenings” plus all the really great food and drink specials that take place in our wonderful clubs and restaurants making Ellicottville the really neat place that it is, for our residents and visitors alike. Before we get started on the music and like we do most weeks. Here are a few ideas on where you may find some good times that are live band free. First, The Depot will be open Friday through Sunday with their pizza and wing specials available. As we approach Halloween, The Depot, will also offer a way to avoid and experience Doom & Gloom, which is the theme of the new Rolling Stones single. Just to the east of our village we have The Birdwalk Restaurant & Antique Shop. Here you will find great gourmet pizza specials along with a fine dinning menu that will have you returning for sure. Tips Up Cafe is a wonderful restaurant located on Washington Street. Beside an excellent and well prepared fine dinning menu you will get to experience, what we call, Ellicottville’s local home town service with a Tips Up Cafe Smile. Then on Monroe Street, The Barn Restaurant, another local and family friendly place, offers great food, especially the Friday Fish Fry, and drink specials along with all ages friendly service. All of this creates an atmosphere that is a FUN Barn Experience. Kabob’s Kafe will be music free this week. However, you may stop in Kabob’s most any time to enjoy their neat ambiance, a cocktail and a great Kabob’s Kafe Lunch or Dinner. Our music parade kicks of at 7:00 PM Friday in Balloons with the return of “The Black Widow Band”. “Black Widow”, who was here for Fall Fest with Lana on lead vocals, offers one of the most diversified, interesting and totally FUN song lists you will ever see or hear. This wonderful band does everything from classic rock to country and oldies to alternative or contemporary rock. Still our favorite is Lana’s version of Steve Perry & Journey. This gig is done in a style that will create a FUN time for The Balloons Crowd. Following “Black Widow”, “Personable DJ John Barry”

In their recent Balloons Gigs they have included a couple of “Blackfoot” tunes. One of which is “Train”. Stevie B does this neat tune in true “Blackfoot” style.

Major Projects, Recreational Trail on Ellicottville Town Board Meeting Agenda Public Hearings to be Held for 2013 Town Budget and 2% Tax Levy Limt Override Recommendation By Jann Wiswall

The Ellicottville Town Board of Directors discussed numerous issues related to major construction projects, budget issues and recreational trail progress during its monthly meeting held Oct. 17. The “good news,” said Supervisor John Burrell, is that the old highway garage building has been sold and settled, and the highway department buildings are coming along nicely. Building sold: The old highway garage building at Routes 219 and 242 was purchased by Tim Hortons. Funds from the sale of the building will be put in the general fund. Highway Department buildings: Highway Department head Dave Golley was not present at the meeting, but Town Engineer Mark Alianello summarized bids he had received for projects related to both the pole barn and the new main highway department building. Bids are in process for concrete floors, radiant heat and exhaust systems. Alianello showed the board new photographs of both buildings and their current construction status. Steel beams have been erected for the main building. The pole barn is under roof. Engineering Department projects: Alianello reported that materials have been delivered for construction of the water line extension at Routes 219 and 242. The project is scheduled to begin Oct. 29. He also said that the town’s new water rules and regulations have been approved by the Village of Ellicottville; approval by the Towns of Mansfield and Great Valley are still needed. Alianello also reported that the floodplain study contractor has begun work and is making good progress. Police Activity at Fall Fest: Police Department Chief Don Auge reported that Fall Fest

went well from a law and order perspective. Officers warned many revelers about open container laws; all complied when asked to throw their beverages away. He noted that there were 15 officers on duty Friday evening, and 17 or 18 on Saturday. County and State troopers were on duty in addition to local police. Budget Resolution: Town Supervisor John Burrell asked for a resolution to transfer funds from the unexpended funds balance to the building repairs budget line due to unanticipated expenses related to repair of the town cupola. The resolution was carried. Recreational Trail Update: Councilmember Ken Hinman reported that the proposed recreational trail continues to generate a lot of community interest. He thanked Mark Alianello for joining the committee and providing especially valuable expertise. Committee members are meeting with some of Olean’s Allegany River Valley Trail planners to learn more about their project. Hinman also said that he is working with Holiday Valley President Dennis Eshbaugh to ensure that Holiday Valley’s plans for roadway and parking lot improvements take the recreational trail plans into account. Donlen Drive: Councilmember Greg Fitzpatrick relayed information

about his discussion with the bank representative handling the Donlen Drive property. Apparently, a bank handling the original foreclosure stopped doing foreclosures. At about the same time, numerous changes to federal and state laws related to foreclosures were made. The new bank that took over the property was required to resubmit all paperwork according to the new laws. That process is now close to completion. Once approved, the bank will be able to offer the property for sale. Other Business: Supervisor Burrell said that he had signed the necessary paperwork requesting that the County Supreme Court approve the sale of the Cooperative Extension Service building. Approval must be received from the State Attorney General’s office, as well. He also said he received a letter from State Senator Catharine Young congratulating Ellicottville for being able to fund the new transportation building without the need for bonds. The November town board meeting has been moved ahead one week to Nov. 14 at 6 p.m. at the Town Hall. A public hearing will be held at that time to hear comments on the recommendation to override a 2 percent tax levy limit. There also will be a public hearing on the 2013 town budget.

attraction is i open Fridays, Saturdays and d S Sundays d from 7:30-9 p.m. According to John Kent, he and his wife have been operating the hayrides for 22 years. “We get people from all over the country,” he said. “These people drive three to four to five hours [to get here]. It’s amazing.” With seven continuously operating tractors and around 70 freight workers there simply to scare you, it’s a great time. The hayride consists of a 25-minute tractor ride down a haunted path with live creatures, a wooden maze, and haunted barn with a vortex tunnel, with the whole experience lasting 40 minutes. The cook shack offering hot and cold drinks homemade soups, chilies, and cookies is located near a pavilion with picnic tables where visitors can eat, laugh and talk about their scary experiences. Kent said, “It’s a fun thing for families and for both young and old. There are a lot of screams and a lot of laughter.” The haunted barn was just updated last year and every year there is something new. This year, visitors can take a ride on the mechanical bull while bounce houses entertain the younger set for an additional fee. The rides cost only $17 per person and those under age 5 are free. The place is huge and brings in larger crowds with each passing year. “You will run into spots [on the hayride] that will

Letters To The Editor The Dark Side of Fall Fest How about this headline: “Ingrates Attack Local Man”? How do you feel about this headline: “Couple Mugged in Their Own Car at Fall Fest”? After the dust has settled and our local sewer system has swollen beyond capacity as a local community, most of us take a deep breath and begin to get back to our usual lives. One local man this year, however, wasn’t as fortunate. While walking the generally safe streets of Ellicottville, a local man and his cousin were jumped and beaten so badly by a group of out-of-town thugs that they were rushed to the hospital. Meanwhile, on the other side of town, a man and woman sit in their car getting ready to leave and without notice another brutal ruffian forces his way into their vehicle and begins demanding money. I remember two years ago for Fall Fest, after spending way too much money for a few drinks, I decided to head home. I grabbed my skateboard and began skating towards my apartment, which was just a couple blocks away on Adams Street. Quickly, I found myself surrounded by three cops. They demanded that I put lights on my skateboard if I wanted to skate at night and that if they saw me again they would issue me a ticket. These are the same out-of-town cops that huddle in front of the bars and for the most part remain stationary throughout our beloved Fall Fest. I think that we need to seriously examine this past Fall Fest and visualize it as a wakeup call. The alarm is going off! There is a dark side to Fall Fest. A man was beaten almost to death and another man and woman were mugged sitting in their own car! Even though Fall Fest is disintegrating from the onslaught of out-of-town delinquents, it will never become extinct. In the future, please hire a stronger, more prominent police force and have them spread out. Point them in the direction of real predicaments, not towards the guy on a skateboard just trying to make his way out of the chaos. I would hate to read the headline, “Local Man Killed During Fall Fest.” --Anonymous guy who now lives in Franklinville

raise the hair on the back of your neck,” Kent said. The hayrides are exciting, thrilling and, of course, a scary good time for families and people of all ages. For any questions, call (716) 6994839. Another fun Halloween event going on is at Gowanda’s Historic Hollywood Theater located at 39 West Main St. in Gowanda, N.Y. From Oct. 26 - 28 and Oct. 31, the haunted theater will be open from 6–9 p.m. It’s $3 a person to get in and everyone under 5 is free. All of the proceeds from the event will go directly to the restoration of the Hollywood Theater. You can also tour another haunted building by visiting the Haunted Dudley Hotel on every Friday and Saturday in October from 7–11 p.m. The hotel is located at 132 Main St. in Salamanca. “It changes every year,” according to the front desk. “[The people in charge of the event] keep it pretty secret. We never really know what’s going on until it happens, just

like everyone else that attends.” There are new surprises every year! A typical tour lasts between 15-20 minutes. There is a $12 admission or a $10 admission with student ID. Everyone under 5 is free. The rating of the event is PG-13, so beware! There are “real ghosts, real terror, a real haunted basement, and real haunted rooms.” The guided tour starts from the hotel’s lobby and continues up the staircase to the first floor, where Halloween monsters will greet guests, including some familiar Hollywood characters. The tour carries on along the first floor’s main hallway, and then proceeds down two flights of stairs to the hotel’s 143-yearold basement where there have been multiple reported ghost sightings. Some people have claimed that one of the ghosts seen in the hotel is Charles Dudley, the man who built the original hotel, then known as the Dudley House. If you have any questions about the spooky event, call (716) 945-2002.

By William Thomas

Millie – a fun but murderin’ kinda gal “Just slip out the back, Jack. Make a new plan, Stan. Hop on the bus, Gus. And get yourself free.” In a catchy little tune, Paul Simon came up with 50 ways to leave your lover. In the last twenty years, Millie Weeks of New Glasgow, Nova Scotia has come up with several more. “Look out for the Ford, Gord.” In 1991, Millie drugged her then husband Gordon Stewart with benzodiazepine and then drove the car over him – not once but twice – on an isolated road near Halifax. She then tried to cash in on her dead husband’s Canada Pension. Good luck with that. Revenue Canada will claw back your pension if they find out you greet people warmly at Walmart. Murder somebody and they won’t even let you pay your taxes in installments! So Millie gets a six-year prison sentence but she only has to serve two years because … well, this is Canada, eh! Rob a bank, get life. Kill your spouse and it’s time off for good behavior. I’m sure her lawyer pointed out the fact that Millie had not been drinking and was driving in the proper lane when she mistook Gordon for a speed bump. So Millie does her time here in Ontario and like a lot of seniors she heads for Florida, not so much for the sun and the Early Bird Specials, but to seek her fortune at the cold hands of old men. “Don’t eat that kabob, Bob.” Soon after arriving in the Sunshine State, Millie became the blushing bride of Robert Friedrich. Actually it was Robert who was soon red in the face and choking from an overdose of benzodiazepine. (Man, she must be buying that stuff in bulk at Costco.) Although she was never charged in his death, Mille gained control of her dead husband’s estate. Robert’s

family stopped her from getting most of his life insurance. “I hope you like coriander, Alexander.” Now approaching 70 years of age, Mille earned the nickname of “The Internet Black Widow” when she met another man from Florida through an online dating service. I’m guessing Millie did not list one of her hobbies as killing hubbies. Alexander Strategos was a lonely widower when he met what he thought was “a really classy lady.” On the day Millie moved in, Alexander mysteriously got sick and fell down, injuring his head. Millie managed to steal $20,000 of Alexander’s savings even though he somehow survived a very bad bout with … you guessed it, benzodiazepine. Say what you like about “Murdering Millie,” she shows great product loyalty in her choice of debilitating drugs. Millie served five years in prison on seven counts of theft. It must have been very hard to be in a Florida prison … all those executions taking place and her not being able to get involved. And just last week, Millie was celebrating yet another whirlwind honeymoon at a B&B in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia when her new husband … I hope you’re sitting down for this one … suddenly took ill. “Be careful who you wed, Fred.” The now 77-year-old Millie Weeks came down for a “leisurely breakfast at Chamber’s Guest House B&B in North Sydney and calmly announced that her new husband 75-year-old Fred Weeks was still in bed and not feeling well. Then Millie had a leisurely breakfast and signed the register – “We enjoyed a wonder stay” – before calling 911. I can understand Millie

having breakfast despite the commotion of her husband Fred fighting for his life upstairs because at Millie’s next stay, the beds are kinda’ hard and they definitely don’t give you a choice between link and patty sausages. Cape Breton police arrested Millie Weeks and charged her with attempted murder. Prosecutor Dan MacRury has refused to grant her bail. “Double lock the van, Dan.” Millie attributed her husband’s sickly appearance to a rough crossing on the ferry from Newfoundland. For which, I’m guessing she did not prescribe gravol. This being the Canadian justice system, I’m sure “The Internet Black Widow” will be out soon and dating again. I mean if she only served two years for killing her first husband, what kind of time will she do for making her last one sick? “Just drop off the key, Lee. And I’ll set myself free.” Millie will likely be ordered to do community service work … in a nursing home … as recreational director. And that’s where I’m hoping the judge puts some very harsh restrictions on Millie. “Don’t fall for the fudge, Judge.” Like no long drives in the country with widowers. And no, definitely no murder mystery plays. Also a court ordered bond that would not allow Millie within 100 metres of a punch bowl would be an excellent idea.

of the bad element of Fall Fest,” said Lowes. “It is the (Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce’s) event, and we have to challenge them to fix it and get it under control.” Bill Sprague and Bill Gugino, of Sprague’s Washington Square Development, were also in attendance and addressed the board with concerns of public safety on Fillmore and Elizabeth streets. Sprague’s development is required to close the old entrance to their site from Elizabeth as part of the requirements set forth from the Village Planning Board before a certificate of occupancy will be issued. Traffic will be required to enter the site from Fillmore Street, and Sprague said when large vehicles turn from Washington Street/Route 219, there isn’t enough room to make the turn, requiring vehicles to swing into oncoming traffic lanes, or for vehicles on Fillmore to move over, back up or find other means to get out of the way. Sprague asked for a discussion of the safety issue before he is required to dig up the existing access driveway from Elizabeth Street. A meeting between the planning board, the mayor’s office, and Sprague’s Development was

suggested. Department of Public Works Report covered preparations for Fall Fest, which included removing and storing the Alley Katz’s flowerpots, putting the village benches away for the season, and taking care of signage before and after the weekend. MayBee Alley was blacktopped and the large tree in front of the courthouse and two others in the village were cut down by Wagoner Tree Service. New sander bids were received and a motion was made to approve the purchase for $4,398 was made and accepted. The Sewer Report covered the inspection for the sewer hookup at the Sprague Development site on Elizabeth Street, a dig request for the bottom of Holiday Valley Road, EllicottVillas and 19 Greer. Installation of the creek flow meter and conduit installation was completed in September. New sewer lines were also inspected and mapped out at EBC. A motion to approve a $5,300 expense to Empire GEO Services for the purpose of the soil samplings study below Lagoon 4 was made and accepted. The Constable’s Report

for September included 13 vehicle and traffic summonses, and 11 warnings. Seven open container warnings were given during the month, most of which occurred during Rock n’ Roll weekend. Ten general complaints were recorded, including several fights, and four skateboarding warnings and 22 parking tickets were issued. A payment of $100 was received from previously issued parking tickets and $565 in new parking tickets was received. Three garbage contract bids were received, with very little difference between the prices. NuWay Sanitation of Arcade, N.Y., was the low bid, with a submitted cost of $49,157 per year for three years. Calls were made to check their references and customer feedback was positive. A motion was made and accepted to contract with Nu Way Sanitation for garbage collection beginning in June 2013. Halloween Trick or Treat in the village will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 31 from 6–8 p.m. The next regular meeting of the Ellicottville Village Board is scheduled for Nov. 19, 2012.

Bowhunting for Turkey a Sneaky Proposition Great Valley Hunter Sells Turkey Calls


SPORTSMANS OUTLET HOURS: Mon - Sat: 9am - 7pm, Sun: 10am - 4pm


Jacket $5995 . David Halloran, award-winning turkey caller, hold trophy turkey. by Mary Fox

Bowhunters for turkey have extra time this year to bring home their Thanksgiving turkey, and even two if they have the right permit. Turkey season for bowhunting begins this Sunday, Oct. 21. It is the first time the season has started this early. Bowhunting for deer has also had an early start opening on Oct. 1 this year. Shotgun season for deer and turkey doesn’t begin until Nov. 17, so bowhunters will have plenty of quiet time in the woods to hang out in their tree stands, behind their blinds (a camouflaged tent-like shelter) or sit at the base of trees waiting for those toms to strut their stuff. A turkey’s amazing ability to see and hear makes bowhunting turkey extremely challenging. Because of the short range of a bow (30 yards), the hunter must conceal himself the best he can while bringing the bird in as close as possible. A crossbow is more desirable to some hunters, because you can have the bow drawn while you wait. With a traditional bow and arrow, you must draw when ready to shoot and the turkey can hear the bowstring creak or the smallest twig break. According to the March 2012 issue of Game & Fish magazine, there are different

methods for luring in the turkey while protecting the hunter from detection. Decoys placed within range are used to keep the attention off the bowhunter as he or she is drawing the bow. Decoys provide added incentive for the turkey to come close and can be used as a distance marker to help estimate range. A bowhunter has many movements to make. A blind he can hide behind helps to cover up his movement. The use of camouflage clothing and face paint helps keep the turkey from distinguishing the hunter from a tree or another animal. Sitting at the base of a big tree breaks up the hunter’s outline when the tom approaches. Turkey calls play a big role in turkey hunting with a bow. If you want to bring a bird in close, you must sound like a bunch of hens and it will bring a bird to you. Local bowhunter Daniel Halloran from Great Valley makes turkey calls for the market. Halloran has won many awards and traveled to numerous hunting shows around the country. He met his wife Ashley, who is also an avid bow hunter, at a show in Ohio. At the age of 12, Halloran first experimented with making calls in his dad’s shop. “Those first calls were pretty

rough, I’ll admit. You really had to work to get a turkey sound, but I kept tweaking things always working towards that perfect turkey call. And now my calls are nationally recognized and truly rival the best calls in the country,” he said. For a look at some of his calls and how they work, you can visit his web site at www. Halloran’s turkey diaphragm call is made from latex, his box calls from a variety of different woods, and friction pot calls from aluminum or ceramic in wooden pots. Virtually all turkey hen sounds can easily be imitated in any of the different kinds of calls including smooth, high-pitched or ear-piercing kee kees, loud popping cutts and clucks, extremely realistic raspy high- to low-end yelps and shrill, sassy yelps and cutts. Jason Quinn, a bow hunter from Great Valley, is like most hunters. Life seems to get in the way and he doesn’t have the time to get out as much as he would like. “Part of the experience of hunting is being outside in God’s creation. It’s almost spiritual to get out before dawn and experience the sounds and light of the woods waking up,” he said.

ceiling construction, insulation, electric, plumbing, heating, cement floor installation, garage door repair or replacement, fans, and other items as needed; -authorization to locate and order a replacement plow and grader. The board also agreed that development of plans for construction of a new transportation building should take place over the next few months and that the new structure should be carefully sited and designed to meet the long-term needs of the town. Other Business While the highway department losses and insurance issues took top priority at this first board meeting since the fire, other important business was addressed as well. Two scheduled public hearings were held: one to override the

tax levy limit of 2 percent for fiscal year 2013, the other to hear public comment on the 2013 budget. There were no objections/comments from the public, and both issues were put forward as resolutions and approved by the board. In addition, the board

No Need to be a Super Chef by Liz Bares

Every Wednesday, the New York Times publishes their food section. I look forward to it as some might look forward to Monday Night Football or the latest episode of “Modern Family. “ The food section is crammed with recipes, restaurant reviews, new cocktail creations and little snippets about the food industry. Mark Bittman is usually in this section and has the most entertaining, candid articles about food I’ve ever read. He wrote one a few weeks ago entitled “Excellence on the Plate, Even Without a Chef’s Edge.” It was a recipe from Jean-George Vongerichten – fried sushi cakes with scallops. Bittman, who has been friends with Vongerichten for decades, broke down his recipe to make it seem more doable in your home. Basically, all the ingredients were on the table except the sticky rice, which really “makes” the dish, if you will. Jean-George himself said he makes this dish at home and uses bottled mayo! My point is, even the best

chefs in the world work with what they have at home. There are thousands of beautifully crafted cookbooks out there with mouthwatering recipes. However, if you don’t have access to some of the ingredients, you aren’t going to by the book. If the technique to making the dish is not straightforward, you aren’t going to buy the book. The cookbook industry revenue forecast looks amazing, $1.5 billion by 2016, according to IBIS World Forecast. Why such a huge number? Their guess is more families are eating at home. This number does not include all the Internet recipes out there. I wholeheartedly agree that eating at home is much more satisfying that eating out, sometimes. Although I think some folks feel they need to be a “super chef” to cook at home or need to come up with something different each and every meal, that is just not so. I admit that some dishes at my house are on a heavy rotation week to week. Now that both my kids are in school full time,

I have more time to scour the Internet or cookbooks to find recipes. All you really need to know are the basics – roasting, sautéing, braising, steaming – and have good enough knife skills so you don’t chop off your finger. I’m interested in what you, the reader, would like to know. Several years ago, a few of my girlfriends would come to my house and I would teach them basic techniques on how to cook things. For example, some of them had never roasted a whole chicken before. If you have a question on what to cook or how to cook something, I’d love to hear it. Send your questions to jennie@ ellicottvilletimes. I stumbled across this recipe the other day. I altered it a bit to fit my family’s needs. It is a vegan recipe and I try to make at least one meal in our home vegan each week. These veggie pies are delicious! Served with a salad, you have your entire meal brimming with vegetables. Enjoy!

Veggie Pies Dogs, cats, and chinchillas were blessed this past Sunday at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. Joyful Rescues Dog and Cat Shelter in Cuba, NY was represented by three puppies. They were the squash family named Butternut, Acorn and Hubbard and are ready for adoption. If you are looking for a dog or cat call Joyful Rescues at 372 3661.

Health – Strength Training

By Kim Logel

Hello, friends! Strength training is one of my favorite ways to workout. If done properly, it can be the most efficient and effective training you do for your body. Both men and women can benefit, since muscle mass is the key to maintaining your metabolism and bone density. Strength training also helps to improve coordination, balance and safeguard your joints. However, learning the lowdown on your body’s mechanics will help you

build a stronger, leaner, injuryresistant body. Many people work out daily but haven’t seen improvements in some time. This can be attributed to taking a passive approach to training by distracting yourself with devices versus concentrating and focusing on your body’s movements. Plus, many workouts are based on one-dimensional movements associated with bodybuilding. There’s a lot of pushing and pulling, but rarely are the core muscles (hips, torso, pelvis and lower back) integrated into the training. We need to rediscover and reactivate the core movements we were born with and see in children. Children can lunge, twist, crawl, balance and pull naturally. Somewhere along the line, we stop moving this way and subscribe to workout programs that actually discourage these natural movements.

Most movement starts from a remarkable muscle called the transverse abdominis. Think of the TA as nature’s weight belt. It originates from the lower spine and wraps around and attaches to the ribs, abdominals and pelvis. When we draw the belly button in toward the spine and up toward the ribs, we’re essentially tightening a belt, ensuring protection of the pelvis and lower back. Your natural weight belt stabilizes the pelvis and supports the torso. The body can be retrained to be more explosive, flexible, elastic and functional. I want you to realize that there is no reason to burden yourself with limitations. Knowledge is empowering. Once you understand the science behind what you are doing and truly participate in the workout, you will be able to enjoy the benefits and freedoms of increased physical activity and an overall stronger and more resilient body.

Makes 10 muffin-sized pies

Crust: 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon sugar ½ teaspoon salt 1 ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon cold Earth Balance margarine (I used soy free that I got at Nature’s Remedy – you could also use just veggie shortening like Crisco) 2/3 cup COLD water 2 teaspoons ground flax seed Whisk dry ingredients together, then cut margarine into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse ground breadcrumbs. (I use my Cuisinart to do this, but be careful not to over mix it or the crust will be hard.) Whisk the flax seed into the water, then add to the dry ingredients. Work the dough into a soft dough ball, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least a half hour. (Can be made a day ahead.)

Pie Filling: 4 cups butternut squash (there are some beautiful squash available at local farmers markets), diced into small chunks ½ cup minced shallots 1 teaspoon olive oil salt and pepper to taste 4 cups total of diced veggies (potato, carrot and I threw in a parsnip and a turnip) 2 small yellow cooking onions, chopped 2 cans white kidney beans or cannellini beans 2-6 cloves of garlic, chopped 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon sage ¼ cup white wine 2 teaspoons poultry spice or mix of thyme, sage, marjoram and savory salt and pepper Toss squash, olive oil, shallots, potatoes, carrots, and any other root veggie you have, salt and pepper together. Place on a cookie sheet with parchment paper or tin foil and roast at 450 degrees for about 30-40 minutes until veggies are soft and slightly golden brown. While veggies roast, heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add beans, onions, garlic and sage. Toss to coat and season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat a bit and cover. Sauté for about 10 minutes until veggies are soft and a bit golden. Then add wine and cook until the wine is slightly reduced. Next, add oven-roasted veggies to saucepan, sprinkle poultry season on top and toss together. Adjust seasonings to taste. Reduce oven to 375 degrees. Remove pastry from fridge. Cut dough ball into 2/3rds (so one side is larger). Return the smaller section to fridge. Sprinkle flour on work surface. Roll out dough to about 1/8” thickness. Cut dough into circles, round cookie cutters work great for this. Just make sure the cutter is large enough so the dough disc will fit into the muffin tin with some overlap. Cut out 10 discs. Oil the muffin tins a bit and place each disc into muffin tin, making sure to have some overlap on the top. Roll out the smaller section of dough into the same thickness. Cut 10 discs. Fill each muffin tin to the top with the cooled veggies. Fit dough disks on top of each muffin tin and pinch the sides of the dough together to seal the crust. Cut a venting hole into each pie. Bake for 34-45 minutes. The dough should be slightly golden. Let cool and gently remove the pies from the tins.

Community Christmas Cantata Rehearsals Begin Concert Dec. 3 at 3:00 p.m. On Sunday, October 14, at 1:00 p.m. rehearsals for the Community Christmas Cantata began. The choir will meet at the United Church on 53 Elizabeth Street in Ellicottville, for eight Sundays leading up to the concert at 3:00 on Dec. 16th, 2012. All 90 minute sessions will begin at 1:00 except Oct. 21, which will be at 7:00 p.m. Also, no rehearsal will be scheduled for Sunday, y, Nov.

25th, during Thanksgiving break. It is the hope of the director, Annette Ieda, that each choir member will be able to attend at least 6 of the 8 rehearsals. Practice CDs and scores will be available to singers to take home. Mrs. Ieda is hoping for at least 40 people to join the choir. Her husband, concert pianist James Ieda, will be the accompanist. companis p is i

This year’s Cantata is a newly written work by Larry Shackley entitled “A Blest Messiah Born.” Mrs. Ieda stated that “Since the work includes solos, SATB ensembles, instrumental parts, and even a song for “children’s voices,” it will have appeal for singers of all ages.” All area musicians are encouraged to join this “community project.”
