Sneak Peek In This Issue . . .
Over at the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce, Executive Director Brian McFadden is rolling out the welcome mat. “We expect about six thousand folks totally including 2,300 competitors.” He estimates the economic impact on Cattaraugus County at about $3,000,000. “It’s really a big deal (because people) spend a lot of money here.” McFadden is quick to point out you don’t have to be a pro to have a good time.

Willie Nelson Live Next Weekend Legendary Act Hits Seneca Allegany Casino and Hotel Next Sunday, August 15 The iconic American country singer-songwriter, Willie Nelson, who reached great fame in the “Outlaw Country” movement in the 1970’s producing albums that consistently topped the country and pop charts through the early ‘80s, will perform live at the Seneca Allegany Casino and Hotel on Sunday, August 15 at 5pm. He began his career writing famous songs for legendary artists such as Patsy Cline’s “Crazy” and “Night Life” for Ray Price. By the time Nelson was in his late 40’s, he was creating his own fame with singles like “On the Road Again” and “Always on My Mind.” Between 1975 and today, Nelson has received 10 Grammy Awards and in 1993 was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame at the age of 60. Now in his 70s, Willie Nelson continues to tour and has performed in concerts and fundraisers with other major musicians, including Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Dave Matthews. He also continues to record albums prolifically in new genres that embrace reggae, blues, jazz, folk, and popular music.

Up Close: Auge’s Archery, A Family Business Tradition ... page A-5 There’s a picture hanging in an archery shop on Peth Road in Great Valley, NY. In this picture, there’s a man, a bit younger than he is today, maybe a few less gray hairs and a couple less wrinkles on his brow. The shop has changed in both location and in merchandise volume. The “state of the art” equipment he’s standing by in the picture has changed even more in appearance than he has since the date it was taken.

How on earth are we supposed to watch our waistlines when our local Chamber keeps knocking these awesome summer festivals out of the ball
park? It’s been one weekend festival after another, and the quality of each event has been top notch! But why does it seem like I’ve been eating my way through the whole season? Time to ride a little further, walk at a brisker pace and cut those dang calories whenever I can. But not this weekend – no sir. The ever-popular “Taste of Ellicottville” kicks off this weekend – Saturday, August 7th and Sunday, August 8th. Our sidewalks will be filled once again with locals and visitors alike, who’ll be enjoying the delectable treats from area restaurants while
strolling around and perusing our shops and stores. The streets will be lined with tents emanating the most scrumptious aromas, where for a modest fee you can sample many popular and exclusive repasts from our awesome eateries. I’ve heard there will be over 100 menu items to tempt the entire family. So, dear readers, hit the gym, cut the ice cream and salty snacks, do whatever you have to do – you’ll want to keep up with all the fun and food served up by the best little four-season resort in the East – Ellicottville, NY.

Assemblyman Giglio Special Session is Exercise in Futility OLEAN-Assemblyman Joe Giglio (R,I,C-Gowanda) has expressed his frustration with the state Legislature’s inability to take any meaningful action during this week’s special session. Between the drain of taxpayer dollars and complete lack of activity, Giglio labeled this week’s meetings both an embarrassment and a failure. “This week’s special session has been an absolute disgrace,” he said. “Three men in a room with egos bigger than the state of New York have once again
circumvented every law governing the legislative process, accomplishing absolutely nothing but the waste of taxpayer dollars.” Gathering the Legislature in Albany has amounted to a bill of roughly $100,000 per day for taxpayers across the state. Adding insult to injury, no meaningful debate took place and no progress was made, adding to the ever-growing list of failures compiled by the Democrat majorities throughout the year. “The legislative process has devolved into the height
of absurdity,” Giglio said. “This week’s session stands as yet another embarrassment to taxpayers that are being completely failed by floundering legislative leaders, who are flaunting their indifference toward their constituents for all the world to see. Dysfunction in Albany has truly hit a new low, and I find the complete lack of leadership by the Democrat majorities to be absolutely shameful. New Yorkers deserve more out of their legislative leaders than the constant embarrassment that they continue to carry on with.”

Holiday Valley Adds “Muddy Buddy” National Event to Roster in 2011
Auge’s Archery: Sighting in on a Family Business Tradition BY DEAN WHITCOMB
BY MEGAN O’D ONNELL S T. BONAVENTURE U NIVERSITY
Get down and dirty next summer when the Columbia Muddy Buddy Ride rolls into town. Founded 11 years ago, the Muddy Buddy Ride has been offering people the opportunity to once again act like kids and roll around in the mud. The Muddy Buddy Ride is a family event that involves teams of two riding in a leap-froggish way. “One teammate bikes a mile, does an obstacle and starts running. The other teammate runs a mile, does the obstacle and begins riding the bike and they switch on and off like that through the race,” said founder Bob Babbitt. “Then at the end, they wait for keach other and go through the mud pit together … Because of the way it’s set up, anyone can do it because you are only running and riding three miles of each.” The obstacles range from climbing up a will and sliding down an inflatable to crawling through a pit of mud, fun huh? The ride is in cities across the nation, mostly big cities like Miami and Chicago, but starting next June 19 it will be coming to our little corner of the world. The ride is said to be coming here for the next three years “It’s a perfect fit for Ellicottville!” said Katie DiDonato, Inn Manager and the one responsible for getting the ride to Ellicottville. “The ride will start at the Yodeler Lodge and circle around back,” DiDonato said. The route will take place on fire and access roads. Expected to bring in 1,400 competitors next year, the Muddy Buddy Ride will be a great addition to the 26 Monroe Street, E’ville Phone: 699-8990 “The Best PULLED PORK In Town!
from each race goes to the Challenged Athletes Foundations (CAF), which helps to fund prosthetics for those involved with sports. “Most insurance companies see sports as a ‘luxury’ but it’s not,” Babbitt said. (For those involved with sports) it’s a part of their lives.” The CAF is primarily funded through the Competitor group (known for their magazines and other sports involvements), which is the parent of the Muddy Buddy Race. To join in all the muddy fun, check out www. muddy-buddy.competitor. com or www.holidayvalley. com under special events for more information. Babbitt hopes that registration will be available in the fall. As a perk, there are chances to win prizes from the Columbia Sportswear Company.
Ellicottville area activities. “It will be a great fit with our existing customer base,” DiDonato said. “The people that come here and ski and the people who come here for our festivals are the very same people that I think will find this event very appealing. It’s a great reason to be outdoors. You don’t have to be an elite athlete, you can just be someone who enjoys being outdoors.” Since this is a family function, the Muddy Buddy ride offers a “Mini Muddy Buddy” ride. It’s a 600-yard ride that kids participate in. They get to ride a bike, run, do an obstacle and then “go through the mud pit like mom and dad did earlier,” DiDonato said. The ride also has attached a fundraising component. Part of the proceeds

There’s a picture hanging in an archery shop on Peth Road in Great Valley, NY. In this picture, there’s a man, a bit younger than he is today, maybe a few less gray hairs and a couple less wrinkles on his brow. The shop has changed in both location and in merchandise volume. The “state of the art” equipment he’s standing by in the picture has changed even more in appearance than he has since the date it was taken. The interesting part, though, is being able to look over the counter and see him in person. Should you ever find yourself standing there, staring Carl Auge in the face, take note of one thing in particular. Look at the gleam in his eye and the smile on his face as he begins to talk archery to you. Then look back at the picture. You’ll notice that look on his face hasn’t changed a bit. The fact is, when Carl Auge first opened “Auge’s Archery” 19 years ago, it wasn’t about “business.” It was about a family’s love for the sport, itself, and Auge still remembers how it felt in the beginning. “It’s funny how my old shop on West State Street has grown into what it is today. The equipment keeps getting better and better. The selection keeps getting larger. Even the targets we shoot at have changed immensely. Sometimes I can’t believe this whole idea started with a couple of bows and one bag target. It’s like I blinked my eyes and the business grew just like my family did. Now my son’s stepping up to the plate and taking this business to all new heights, and he’s got a son who loves archery just as much as we do. It sure is a family tradition.” Celebrating their third year in their new location, Auge’s Archery, now owned by Carl, his son, Don, and Tammy
Auge’s Archery kicked off 2010 by adding a 3-D Pop-Up shooting range behind the shop. The range is currently set up for twelve 3-Dimensional Animal targets.
Auge, is an Authorized Dealer for Bowtech, Diamond Archery and Martin Archery and is also a full-service ProShop, carrying everything an archer needs as a beginner or a veteran. Additionally, Auge’s Archery kicked off 2010 by adding a 3-D Pop-Up shooting range behind the shop. The range is currently set up for twelve 3-Dimensional Animal targets including deer, bears, turkeys, a wolf, a coyote, an antelope, a boar and a javelina. Most of the targets “pop-up” out of a lying down position, and two move surprisingly different, from a computeroperated air compressor that randomizes their order of appearance. A shooter has between three and seven seconds to make a shot at a scored area located where a clean kill shot could be made on actual hunting game. “It really prepares everybody for hunting,” co-owner Don Auge states, “not that you need to be a hunter to do it, but it’s actually designed to broaden an archer’s skills. It provides the shooter opportunities to shoot from several angles and distances, and also forces he or she to make shots in a limited time frame.” Auge’s wife, Tammy, also coowner of the shop, continued on his remarks, “Binoculars and rangefinders are both useful pieces of equipment, but this range mocks real-life conditions.
When you’re in the woods, there’s often no time for those luxuries. You’ve got to pick a spot quickly and just hit it.” The target point system is based on two rounds of 12 shots, one at each animal. Points are earned by hitting the animal as close to the center of the scoring target as possible, where the highest point totals are given. Adults shoot for a fee of $12.00 and children under 14 shoot for $6.00. The Pro-Shop is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 am to 4 pm, Thursdays from 5 to 7 pm, and Fridays and Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm. The 3D Pop-up course is open Tuesdays from 9 am to 5 pm and Wednesday through Saturday from 9 am to 7 pm. Both the range and shop are open on Sundays by appointment and closed on Mondays. Group reservations are welcomed at the shooting range and can be made by calling Auge’s Archery at 716945-7286 or by stopping into the shop at 6121 Peth Road, Great Valley, NY 14741. The shop and range are conveniently located less than 10 minutes driving distance from the Seneca Allegany Casino and the Village of Ellicottville. Customers may also visit and contact Auge’s Archery on their website, www. augesarchery.net. Auge’s Archery would like to welcome all IBO Shooters to the area this weekend for the love of the sport and competitive spirit.

www.EllicottvilleOasis.com My name is Erica Walker. I am 35 years old. I have most recently been attending Erie Community College in hopes of attaining my Registered Nursing degree. I have about another year before I complete it. However, I’ve decided to take a break from it while attending to my most recent illness. I am trying to be brave and stay healthy enough until I can receive a kidney transplant. Doctors say I’m fairly young to be diagnosed with CKD. I have been receiving dialysis treatments for about a year now. I worked at Interstate Baking Company for 10 years prior to the plant closing a few years back. They made Wonder Bread and Hostess products right here in Buffalo, NY. My boyfriend, Jim, and I have recently purchased and moved into our first home. We’re very excited. Our plans are to marry and raise a family here in Cheektowaga. If you are blood type “A” and would like to be Erica’s living kidney donor, please call Jeanette Ostrom at 716-450-8958 or e-mail Erica at firstname.lastname@example.org To the world you may be just one person, but to one person, you just may be the world. Thank you from the Western New York Kidney Connection.
Local Band to “Jazz it up” August 10th BY ERIC HUND Zazoo will jazz it up at Riley’s Bar and Restaurant on Tuesday, Aug. 10 from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The four-man group is comprised of “Little” Jack Little on guitar, tubettini and finger symbols, Billy Thiel on the sousaphone and harp, Lewis J. Rinauldo on the gutbucket, sirens and whistles, and D. Kim “Cool” Breeze on the scrub board, harp, congas, spoons and various other instruments. Guitarist Little said the band, which has a strong comedic undertone, mostly plays show tunes, and they like to joke around with the audience during their shows. Little said that the group, which formed in the 80s, has recently started playing again after a number of years. He said that the word “zazoo” was a term used in New Orleans in the 1920s and 30s and was a synonym for jazz. Over the years as the word jazz became more popular the term zazoo fell into obscurity. Little said the band was originally named Zazoo Libation Orchestra, and that they were known as the only attack jazz band in business because of their habit of going
The group does practice the songs, but that the actual show is largely a “seat of the pants” performance and that once they hit the stage “all their plans go out the window.”
into a bar, playing a few songs and then leaving without any introduction or explanation. He added that the group is probably the only one to have played in the Barn Restaurant and Lounge’s loft. He further added that the band has played at the Gin Mill, and that they have opened for 27 national acts over the years at a number of upscale presentations around Western New York. Recently the band played at Ellicottville’s Americana Folk Arts & Music Fair. He said that was one of the best parts about the band not needing any sound equipment to play a venue.
Little said that the band would play one set with no breaks. He joked that the band is getting too old to stay up too late on a school night. Little said the group does practice the songs, but that the actual show is largely a “seat of the pants” performance and that once they hit the stage “all their plans go out the window.” Little said there is no cover charge to watch the band play, and that people should arrive early, since there are no reservations for the event. Riley’s Bar and Restaurant is located at 7734 U.S. route 219 in Ellicottville. For more information on Riley’s call 716-699-2359.

BY DOUG ARROWSMITH When, exactly, did it happen? When, after decades of trying to claw our way out of the muck, did we slide back into a morass of intolerance? When did the diseased and cursed voices of the bigots and fear mongers become the voices of reason? When did the uneducated and downright stupid begin to influence the nation with their warped understanding of history? Where are the voices of reason? Why aren’t we shaming these people into silence? Why aren’t we chasing them back to their backwoods hovels and swamps? The rest of the world is laughing at us, as our collective stupidity is displayed, top shelf, for all to see. I’m getting tired of our reputation as an enlightened people being tarnished by a few boozed-up crackers with microphones. It’s time to take our country back starting now! Yeah I’m fired up. I’m fired up because I can tolerate all sorts of stupid behavior, but as a reader, and a human, I cannot, and will not, tolerate a book burning. It’s a crime against humanity not just an insult to our nations
history. Try telling that to the fundamentalist nut jobs of The Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida. The terrorists who belong to the Center, under the orders of Terry Jones, the leader of their Christian cult, plan on celebrating the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks next month with a mass book burning. The book in question, of course, is the Holy Quran, which will open up a whole new can of holy-roller worms. Just writing about these slimy zealots makes me sick. They’re no better than the terrorists they fear; Terrorists, who incidentally, have victimized and murdered many more of their fellow Muslims, than they have Americans. The 9/11 Quran burning is, however, only a small piece to a much larger puzzle. A puzzle that includes everything and everyone from the race baiting Glenn Beck to the immigration inspired fear mongering of the supposed “sunshine” state. How did we get here? We’re supposed to lead the way. We’re supposed to be the light at the end of the tunnel. We’re America for Gods sake. Lets at least pretend to know who we’re supposed to be and what we’re supposed to stand for. Our understanding of race and religion has always, in one form or another, torn us apart. Just as we insisted that people of color use separate entrances and drinking fountains we, at the same time, coveted our role as the worlds enlightened leader. Our double standards have always been just below the surface, occasionally boiling over into full-scale conflict. We say, “Give us your huddled masses” but only if they’re
white, Christian European huddled masses. We defy our founding fathers without even remotely trying to understand what they actually stood for. In Texas, rather than acknowledge the fact that Thomas Jefferson was for the separation of church and state, the school board simply erased his existence from their textbooks. We boldly state that we are a melting pot of races and religions but we burn the holy book of the world’s largest denomination without a second thought. We elect a black president while accusing him of being a racist. We celebrate the anniversary of Dr. King’s “I have a dream” speech by holding a Tea Bagger rally at the very spot where our Country’s racist tendencies were finally acknowledged. Now this. A book burning on the anniversary of the worst day most of us have ever lived through. The fanatics that piloted those jets on 9/11 claimed to be good Muslims but they represented Islam about as well as the fanatics that are planning the book burning represent Christianity. Evil is evil no matter which prophet is claimed. The good Christian Arizona suburbanites claim Jesus while sending Mexicans back to the drug fueled insanity of the border regions say they are Americans but they might as well be studying the same warped evil that all good fanatics claim as religion. This insanity is not America. This insanity is not who we are. We’re better than this and, as the world watches, we should be raising our voices in defense of who we really are. We are America.

St. John Building
CONTINUED FROM FRONT COVER Holiday Valley Bow Hunters Open. If you want to try your hand at bow hunting, now’s your chance. “You don’t have to qualify. You just sign up and shoot the same course as the qualifiers do. McFadden notes that registrations for the Championships “are up” and the vendor show opens August 11th. “We’ll have about sixtyfive or seventy vendors,” some of whom will appeal to other interests besides bow hunting. Then there’s the fun set for Thursday and Friday evening at Holiday Valley’s Tannenbaum Lodge, starting around 5 o’clock.“It’s the spectator side of it, we’ll have shoot offs.” Participants try to win prizes like Rolex watches, all-terrain vehicles, or “whatever they’re shooting for that night.” They will be able to enjoy a chicken barbecue and relax at the bar, and “enjoy these pros and semipros shooting for prizes.” Those taking part in the Championship stay for the better part of a week. McFadden says that because participants come from all over the country and the world, they “typically bring their families and make it a vacation.” People will start filtering in this Saturday. The pros get in

As for lodging in Ellicottville, McFadden notes that “we’ll have it all filled up.” He said that Triple-A Campground in Franklinville sent the Chamber of Commerce a “wonderful e-mail” that they are sold out once again. “There won’t be many rooms left in the county.” At Holiday Valley, they’re busy getting the courses ready. Marketing Director
Jane Eshbaugh says the kids will not be forgotten, as there will be plenty of activities for children. “They’re happy while the parents are down on the courses.” And the public is welcome to check out a trade show. “They’ll have bows, targets, and anything you would need if you’re interested in bow hunting.” It’s outdoors, with various companies setting up booths. This is the third year Holiday Valley has hosted the Bow Hunters Championship. “It brings a lot of people to the area and is great for the whole area.”
