The grass may be green, but it’s not growing under the feet of those who work at Holiday Valley and HoliMont. Work at both resorts is continuing this summer in preparation for the upcoming ski season as current guests enjoy the many warm weather activities. At Holiday Valley, they are putting about four million dollars into the resort this summer, according to Marketing Director Jane Eshbaugh. “At the top of the list is our Morning Star high-speed chair lift.” It should be completed by the start of ski season. Eshbaugh says they are relocating the base of the lift, so it will actually be about one third longer than the lift it is replacing. “But the trip up the hill will be less than half the time it used to take.” The reconfiguration will mean extending the length of the Cross Cut and Morning Star ski slopes. Holiday Valley has also put in two new slopes. One is called Bear Cub, located off the Snow Pine chair lift, and is for beginners. Eshbaugh calls this a new area for ski slopes. “The other new SEE SKI AREAS PAGE 9

ECS Readies to Open for New School Year Preparing for the Future: Ellicottville Central Re-Vamps Athletic Field and Robotics Lab Awaits Students BY JOHN THOMAS

At Holiday Valley, they are putting about four million dollars into the resort this summer, according to Marketing Director Jane Eshbaugh. “At the top of the list is our Morning Star high-speed chair lift.” It should be completed by the start of ski season. Eshbaugh says they are relocating the base of the lift, so it will actually be about one third longer than the lift it is replacing. “But the trip up the hill will be less than half the time it used to take.” General Manager Dave Riley is pleased with progress being made on the $22-million expansion project, noting it took only about a year and a half to obtain State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) approval, which is “very quick for a project of this size.” Clearing trees and brush in the roadway area is being done, along with surveying and staking the property. “This will allow people to come look at the thirty-one single-family lots” up for sale under phase one of the expansion project, which is funded through the sale of residential lots and condominiums. The the WestMont Ridge project, formerly known as the Canfield Project, calls for construction of 72 condominiums and 93 single-family lots. It also calls for building a new chalet, a new beginner area, and a new lift-served slope that will be lighted at night. Riley says, “It’s a large project (and will take) seven years or possibly more.”

While students have been off enjoying their summer vacations, the administration and staff of Ellicottville Central School have been hard at work preparing for the new school year ahead. In talking to Mark Ward, superintendent of the school, he sounds excited about some of the changes that have been made and enthusiastic about the coming year. “We’re putting the finishing touches on a new concession stand and press box and bathrooms, for our fans and spectators and student

athletes to enjoy.” He goes on to mention the help received from Jerry Musall and others in the community, “we’ve been very fortunate to get the help of a variety of contractors, some reduced costs, and (other) help in completing this project.” More changes have happened inside the school stating, they “remolded the old shop area and created a modern technology classroom, a lab, and a television studio.” Upgrades to the television studio area will make it more like a real broadcast studio.

Joint Fire Commission Meeting

Monday, August 23 Town Council and Board Evaluates Firefighter Retirement Plan BY JOHN THOMAS In a combined meeting of the Town Board and Fire Commission the two boards heard a presentation from Penflex Inc. regarding the creation of a Service Award Program (SAP) to provide retirement income to volunteer firefighters. Over the years nationally, there has been an 80% drop-off in volunteers for local fire companies. While Ellicottville has not been severely affected by this decline, the number of active firefighters is less than it was just a few years ago. SAPs have proven effective not only in recruitment, but also in retention of volunteer firefighters. Speaking for Penflex, Edward Holohan and David Rogers outlined a program

described as a Length of Service Award Program (LOSAP). The programs act like a simple pension plan to provide retirement income for firefighters who reach a certain age. Laws created in New York State in 1988 allow for the creation of LOSAPs. According to the men, firefighters must meet certain requirements to be eligible for the program; they must be considered active firefighters and must earn a certain number of points during a year to be vested into the system. Points can be earned not only for responding to fire calls, but also for continuing education, attending training courses and drills. When the volunteer reaches the payout age they may receive either a lump sum payment or

monthly payments depending on how the program is designed. At the end of the year the volunteer’s points are added up and a payment is made into the fund on behalf of each of the qualifying firefighters. Payments into the system would be funded by an assessment on property taxes. Mr. Holohan emphasized that the program is completely flexible, and that the Fire Commission has complete control in deciding: how firefighters become eligible for the program, how they earn points, how many points they must earn in a year to be funded by the program, and what the payout age would be. He went on to say SEE FIRE PAGE 9

Planning Board Discusses the New Sales Approach of the Project BY DEAN WHITCOMB The Ellicottville Town Planning Board was called to order at 6pm on Monday evening, the 23rd of August 2010. All board members were present to discuss matters dealing with the current status and promised progress of construction at Morning Side Estates. Mark Dean, the Architect appointed to the Morning Side Estates project

spoke of the current state of the construction, which has been largely the same since the first three buildings were erected. He unveiled plans for changes to the Board not only in construction, but also in the marketability of the project and the name of the property itself. The original idea of selling the properties individually has been restructured so that the entire complex will serve as a Residence

Club. Buyers will purchase shares of a particular building and may occupy any of the units within it during their stay, or still purchase an entire unit out right. There are blueprints in the works for a Clubhouse that will offer several amenities including a Spa and Fitness Center, Storage for share-holders/owners, a lounge and a proposed outdoor heated pool.

Publisher’s Word

Own a Piece of History... ...in Bradford, PA •••

“What? No Festivals this Weekend?” This is it, folks – the last weekend of August. I’m seeing some early reds and yellows starting to color up the green forest canopy of our Enchanted Mountains. No doubt a direct result of some cooler evenings – feels good, doesn’t it? It won’t be long before we’re awash in spectacular color and up to our eye balls in festivals and fun events – Pumpkinville opens in a couple of weeks, Rock N Oldies weekend is right around the corner, and all sorts of autumn activities will be here before you know it. But this weekend – let’s see… Hmmm… Nope – nothing on the calendar! How could this be? Does this mean we’re actually going to be left to our own devices this weekend? We have to entertain ourselves?

OPTION HOUSE HOTEL, RESTAURANT, LOUNGE located in Bradford Pa is one of Bradford’s historic landmarks. Features 2 restaurants, liquor license, furnished rooms/apartments and contents. An A #1 turnkey dream..Check it out on HISTORICPROPERTIES.COM or Real Living Avista Properties. Mary Brzenski, Assoc. Broker 814-368-4205

How do we do that? What ever will we do? I suppose we could play a little golf, take a little hike, get out the mountain bikes, go on a horseback ride, or take a stroll around the Arboretum. Or we could do a little shopping, grab a bite to eat, do a little more shopping, go out to dinner, head down to the casino, come back and see what the nightlife holds for us. Or we could grab the camping equipment, make a quick trip to the state park and have ourselves a miniexpedition. Or we could just relax around the ol’ hacienda. So, dear readers, when you live and play in this corner of the Southern Tier, being bored is simply not an option - there’s always something fun to do! Enjoy! JZ

Rotary Foundation for Youth & Family Support: A 501c3 Organization With the Michael Kerns benefit “Another day in Paradise” coming this weekend, many people have asked what the Foundation for Youth and our affiliate Family Support for Ellicottville do as a 501c3 organization. To tell the truth we have always been quiet about what the group does as we feel that confidentiality is critical to our success, however a brief outline of some of the things that we do may not hurt. Many know that we made a capital donation of $50,000.00 to the Ellicottville Memorial Library over the past 5 years. Having completed that, we co-donated with the Moss family 5 laptop PC’s and charging station to help alleviate the demand at the Library. We sponsor events that we believe help our community like Americana Folk Art and Music Fair, Children First Festival, the Children’s Halloween party at the Legion & The Irish Christmas. We sponsor numerous children’s activities

and educational programs along with providing $500 scholarships to both BOCES and ECS. We provide a tool kit to students in need at BOCES for the automotive programs when entering and leaving the program to help them get started in their chosen profession. Our Family Support for Ellicottville group was established three years ago to help those in need in our community by promoting a more healthy family environment. From providing school supplies to those ECS students in need each fall to supporting special student travel and education programs, we work closely with ECS to improve the educational experience for those in need. We insure that those who do not have the money for the lunch program or books for further education get needed help. We also send two students to attend the Rotary Slapshot program, a weekend leadership retreat for teens.

We try to help the family environment through support for battered women with startup funds, clothing and furniture. During the holiday season we provide families in need with Thanksgiving dinners. During the Christmas season a unique program called “Santa’s Workshop” provides many of those less fortunate with gifts and food to make their holiday a little more special. There are other less visible support programs that are done with the help of our hard-working volunteers. Our major fundraiser every year is the Michael Kerns event and we guarantee that 100% of the funds we raise go to these programs: noting everyone who works the events are volunteers. We hope that what we do helps, but know that the kind donations and support from individuals and business’ in Ellicottville end up serving the less fortunate in our community and we thank you all for your support. ---Rotary Club of Ellicottville

Route 219 @ Wildflower Ellicottville, New York

Olean Signs On for Another Three Years to Host Tournament OLEAN -- The Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball in Olean was a SLAM DUNK SUCCESS! Two hundred ninety four teams played this weekend, which is an increase of 12 teams over last year’s tournament. The tournament had 1,176 registered players. “Olean’s Gus Macker had an increase in players in the 10 and under and 12 and under brackets. We also had a jump in players in the 19-24 year old brackets. We did see a decrease in the 17-18 year old players and in top women’s due to the date of our tournament. We were a week later with many of those players starting fall sports and back to college,” stated John Irving, Gus Macker Olean Co-Chair. The Olean Gus Macker Committee met with the Gus Macker National Staff over the weekend and have agreed to sign on for another three years. Carucci stated, “Our local committee discussed this at our last meeting - although the Gus Macker takes a lot of planning and preparation and committee organization, we realize that this is a great fundraiser for the students at the Olean City Schools. Every penny raised goes towards academics and athletics at Olean City Schools.” For more information, please contact David Carucci at 372-9289, or Meme K. Yanetsko at 372-4433.

Giglio Pushes Job Website Assemblyman Encourages Residents to Use NYS Job Bank Site Assemblyman Joe Giglio (R,I,C-Gowanda) is encouraging his constituents to visit the newly created New York State Job Bank website. Assembled by the New York State Department of Labor, the website serves as a resource for both job seekers and employers. “The Department of Labor has provided hardworking New Yorkers with an extremely valuable tool,” he said. “This website can be a key component in the effort to turn around New York’s

economy.” The Job Bank contains over 84,000 job postings and allows job seekers to post their resumes, locate job fairs and start planning a career. In addition, employers can list their job openings and research the latest labor market analysis. These resources provide a comprehensive and centralized location for business owners to find prospective employees and form professional bonds for the future. “This website offers business

owners the tools they need to successfully utilize New York’s dedicated workforce,” he said. “The success of our state’s economy begins with getting people back to work, and I believe this website can do exactly that. I strongly encourage my constituents to visit the Job Bank and take advantage of the many resources this website provides.” The Job Bank can be accessed by visiting www.laborny.jobs. The services are provided free of charge.

Dr. James Evans, Vice President and Dean of Student Affairs, commented, “PittBradford is indeed fortunate to have attracted a seasoned professional in Dr. Ron Binder. He brings to the college a wealth of experience informed by outstanding work with students at some of the nation’s top public universities. Dr. Binder will prove to be a strong asset to the Student Affairs division in particular, and to Pitt-Bradford in general. We are delighted to have him with us.” A native of Toledo, Ohio, Binder earned his bachelor’s degree at the University of Toledo and relocated to Bradford to be closer to his family. Binder began his duties, which include overseeing residential life and housing,

Buffalo Spine and Sport BY ERIC HUND PITT-BRADFORD UNIVERSITY Area residents with spine and joint injuries can have their conditions treated at The Buffalo Spine and Sport Institute’s Ellicottville clinic. Christina Abt, director of marketing at BSSI, said that BSSI is a non-surgical physiatry practice, a form or rehabilitative medicine, which treats spine and joint related injuries. The group also treats occupational injuries, degenerative and painful joints, chronic headaches and women’s health conditions. Patient treatment areas include back, neck, shoulders, elbows, hands, hips, pelvis, knees, ankles and feet. She said the group’s motto is to “Take back you active lifestyle,” and their goal is to allow their patients to return to their previous level of activities. BSSI features highly trained physicians who focus on comprehensive examinations to determine a patient’s condition, and the group takes a team approach to their patient’s treatment. Abt said that it is common for a physician to spend an hour or more during the initial examination to isolate the location and type of injury to develop the most effective treatment regimen. As a demonstration of the group’s effectiveness, Abt said that recently an individual was referred to the group with a hamstring injury, but after an hour long examination the physician determined that the injury was actually located in the patient’s toe, which allowed for a far more effective treatment of the injury. The Ellicottville branch of the medical group opened in 2008 and is open two days a week. They have physician’s assistants available from 1:30

p.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays and Dr. Michael Geraci, Jr. is available to treat patients on Fridays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Geraci co-founded BSSI with Dr. Frederic McAdam in 1988 as a way to offer an integrated, team approach to non-surgical treatments. Their physicians are nationally recognized as progressive medical practitioners, and they are nationally respected as authors for leading medical journals and as presenters for practice-related conferences. The BSSI physicians are dedicated to continuing education through bi-annual sponsorship of education seminars and an annual inhouse Fellowship program open to practicing physiatrists across the United States. They also dedicate their energy to educating their patients and community about the constantly changing techniques in the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation. The physicians use state-ofthe-art diagnostic treatments and non-surgical services that include advanced sports rehabilitation, pain alleviating x-ray and ultra sound guided injections, functional physical therapy and custom designed exercises, targeted women’s health services and Botulinum therapy for chronic pain conditions. Their staff works with new patients to help them understand and deal with their injuries, and then work as a team to custom design the best treatments to help the patients regain their former lifestyles. BSSI emphasizes the role of medical exams and the patient’s medical history during their evaluations, and they supplement that information with lab work and imaging studies. They pride themselves on practicing what they call old time medicine. BSSI’s staff works with

other area physicians, surgeons, physical therapists and chiropractors to set up consultations and treatments needed by the patient. Abt said that BSSI physicians succeed in returning over 80 percent of their patients to their previous level of activity, and that the practice has received a 94 percent patient satisfaction rating. She said BSSI also has clinics located in Williamsville, Orchard Park and Lockport. BSSI accepts all insurances, including worker’s comp and disability, and they accept Canadian patients. Abt said patients only need a referral if one is required by their insurance company, and that they are fully setup to work with Canadian insurance system.

Shults Auto Enters a New Spotlight

“Marine Grade,” Solid Cherry

BY MEGAN O’DONNELL ST. BONAVENTURE UNIVERSITY Shults Auto Group takes their business to a new level. A new commercial is up and running on Time Warner Cable, but you may notice something new. For the first time, “Shultsy”, their animated mascot, will be broadcast to TV’s throughout Southern Tier New York and Northern Pennsylvania. However, the cute little car will not just sit there, he’ll talk, wink, beep and make viewers everywhere put a smile on their face. “I wanted our graphics people to create a happy, sparkling clean car with a big smile who would become the focal point,” Dave Burns, Director of Marketing said. Originally, Shultsy was created to showcase Shults Auto Spas by adding a little zing to the campaign. And soon enough the shiny car needed a name. “Most everyone loved the happy little red car,” Burns said. “So I decided to name him Shultsy in view of he becoming the future mascot of the Shults Auto Group.” A company out of Buffalo did the initial animation to Shultsy, but for the commercial Time Warner did more tweaking to make it ready to air! The new commercial on Time Warner is on many different networks such as, CNN, ESPN, TBSC, TNT and the Weather Channel. The impact of the commercial is already being felt at franchises across the region.

~ The Villager ~ August 26- September 1, 2010

Architectural Digest Country Grandeur STORY AND PHOTOS BY JOHN THOMAS

It’s a dreary rainy day as I head up the driveway to 5300 Partridge Hill Circle; and my mood is almost as foul as the weather. The green of the huge front lawn and the surrounding forest seems intensified by the gray low hanging clouds. I walk across the front of what seems to be a well made and pleasant ranch style home. But when I walk through the front doors an interesting transformation takes place; my mood lifts as I discover a beautifully remodeled, and tastefully decorated interior. The front door opens to a small foyer. Here begins the beautiful hardwood flooring that extends throughout the living areas on the main floor. Moving into the hallway I notice the molding around the ceilings that give the home a polished look. Shortly I’m in a virtual palace of a kitchen. The dark cherry cabinets that line the three walls exhibit a craftsmanship all too rare in homes these days. In the center of the kitchen is a bi-level, V-shaped counter that functions both as a breakfast bar and work counter. The granite countertops pick up hues from the creamcolored tile backsplash, and sleek stainless steel appliances give the workspace a distinctly modern look. The range and oven are propane fired and over them is a convenient microwave

hood unit. Over the sink a window has a view of the pond on the property. Just off the kitchen is the dining area. It shares the view out to the forest, and has a set of French doors that open to the wrap-around deck. Along the wall that is shared by the living and dining rooms, is a panel of spectacular windows that bring in the view of the forest. There are two large windows in the center and two smaller windows on each end. My eye skips from window to window lingering longer on the larger windows and shorter on the smaller ones; it’s like a sort of visual jazz. Over in the living area the windows fill the room with soft light. A propane stove provides warmth and atmosphere. Down the hall a bit is a room that could be used for many things; currently it’s a library, but could also be a media room, den, or extra bedroom. The gas burning fireplace and hardwood floors add a cozy touch. Upstairs are two large bedrooms; both featuring high arched ceilings. With its high ceiling, spacious layout and reading alcove, the master bedroom is so large it dwarfs the king sized bed. Equally huge are the his and her walk-in closets. The windows look out to the tree tops and a gas stove provides a spark of romance. The second bedroom on this floor is almost

equally impressive. Between the two bedrooms is a full bath with a huge shower stall. Descending to the basement I come across what can only be described as a spa. For some well-deserved pampering you could start off with a session in the sauna, and then move across the hall for a relaxing soak in the Jacuzzi tub. If that isn’t enough, the bath features a full-sized shower with a bench. Down the hall is a large family room set up as the entertainment center. There is plenty of room for exercise equipment or a pool

table. The back wall is plumbed and wired for the addition of a full service bar. Also on this floor is yet another really big bedroom. This is a house in which you can really spread out. And speaking of spreading out, back on the main floor I discover the oversized two car garage. It has two separate outside entrances and connects to the house via a rather large mud room. Between the garage and the mud room, there is plenty of room for storing every sort of outdoor gear you can imagine. Outside the five acres of rolling I’m in a virtual palace of a kitchen. The dark cherry cabinets that line the three walls exhibit a craftsmanship all too rare in homes these days.

The granite countertops pick up hues from the cream-colored tile backsplash, and sleek stainless steel appliances give the workspace a distinctly modern look.

In the fight against obesity, we often hear of various solutions to this growing problem. Nowadays, many people are obese or overweight, exhibiting tell-tale proof of poor nutritional choices and inactivity. Type 2 Diabetes- once only found in adults- is now on the rise in our offspring. What’s the solution? I always stress to my clients that the answer lies in four words: balance, choices, commitment and lifestyle. Consider proper nutrition and exercise: you can’t have one without the other. There must be a co-operative balance

warm-up and 10 min. cool down of stationary stretching. Resistance training should occur 2-4 times/week for 30-60 mins., with a 10 min. cardio warm-up and 10 min. flexibilty cool down added on. Flexibility stretching exercises need to be done 5-7 times/week for 10-20 mins. at the end of every workout. Yes, it takes time and effort to look after your body. It also takes self- discipline and chronic commitment, which doesn’t come from a bottle or the latest diet or fitness fad. Unfortunately for many of us, it’s only when our health or shape suffers, that we finally decide to do something about it. Here, it’s vital to realize that there’s no easy, quick solution and that positive, long-term effects come from a lifetime commitment to a healthy lifestyle of proper nutrition, daily exercise and stress management. It’s only through this realization and choice, that we can then achieve safe, genuine, longlasting health and proper body composition.

between them, as energy output needs to match or exceed energy intake. If you depend on diets with caloric restrictions or diet pills for losing weight, you won’t achieve long-lasting results. Instead, success lies in food choices, portion size, your glycemic index and load, metabolism and a commitment to exercise. By consuming natural, nutritionallysound foods in moderation with portion consideration and dietary balance, a controlled and comfortable body weight can be achieved if coupled with routine, active exercise. Exercise. Many people can’t seem to find the time to exercise, citing their busy schedules as the culprit. Here, a short daily diary will reveal where time is being spent on sedentary activities (i.e. watching T.V., reading, sewing, talking on the phone, texting, computer, etc.) With this new-found insight, some inactive times can be replaced with enjoyable, physical activity. (Try scheduling in your workouts into your daily agenda!) A safe, effective exercise program must include cardio, resistance training and flexibility. Cardiovascular activity should be performed 4-6 times/week at a moderatehigh intensity for 20-60 mins., excluding the 10 min. cardio

It pains me to say this but, for now, they might as well just scrap the whole idea. Of course I’m talking about Park 51, the supposed “Ground Zero Mosque”, which has the entire nation suffering from a bad case of the vapors. My suggestion has nothing to do with the hysterical ranting of “Fixed” News or the racist tendencies of the protestors. Scrap it because it’s the safe thing to do and, believe me, I never take the safe way out. I came to this conclusion after watching media coverage of Sunday mornings dueling protests at the proposed site of the Islamic cultural center. Things were getting a bit heated and both sides were doing their level best to outshout the other side. Suddenly there was a scuffle. A group of “anti-mosque” demonstrators had confronted and surrounded a man in the crowd. He was black and wearing a white skullcap, obviously, the enemy. It took police intervention to get the man out of the crowd intact. Turns out

he wasn’t a Muslim or part of the protest. He was a ground zero construction worker on his way to lunch. That’s when it hit me. These people are every bit as fanatical as the nut jobs responsible for the 9/11 attacks. They are willing to attack based on misinformation, racism, religion and appearance. They don’t care what gets built near ground zero, after all, there are several strip clubs within two blocks of the site, their hatred is their motivation and nothing will stand in their way, not even the fact that their actions ensure the victory of the terrorists they oppose. So my motivation is safety. No one will ever be safe near the former Burlington Coat Factory in question. Despite the Constitution and the freedom of religion it guarantees. I wrote a column last week that I thought was pretty straightforward. If you love and respect the freedoms guaranteed by that sacred document you must support the rights of everyone to worship where and when they want. Seems simple enough. Then my inbox filled up. Apparently several of my more conservative leaning readers have decided that the constitution is irrelevant and I should beat feet out of the country. Oh well. I tried. Now here’s what really vexes me. Who the hell do you think you are? I’m talking to you Middle America. What right do you have, not only to trounce the Constitution, but also to decide what gets built in the Big Apple. Over and over during the immigration debate in Arizona I kept hearing that

very argument from libertarians everywhere. “What right do you have to make decisions for Arizona?” Fair enough. Now, the majority of Americans seemingly oppose the construction of the building in question and they have that right, however, the majority of New Yorkers support it. So what right do you have making decisions for a city you will, in all probability, never see? Don’t bring up the fact that 9/11 makes it a national issue because if that were true you’d be protesting at the Pentagon which has had an actual Mosque inside it for years. I can’t send a simple e-mail to a congressperson from another district but a candidate from Kentucky can rant away about a nonexistent mosque in New York? Get over yourselves. There are many people who oppose the building out of legitimate concerns over terrorism but there are many more racists and fear mongers using the issue as a political weapon. So just move it. I wish it wasn’t necessary but it just might be. Trust me, if I could I’d stand watch at the front door myself trying to protect the worshipers inside but that wouldn’t help either. At this point the building is just providing fodder for every Paladino freak in the state and the nation. Eventually someone’s going to get hurt. When a site is finally found and approved a giant copy of the Constitution should be slapped on the frond door for all to see. No one would dare attack the building or the people inside it then. Would they? Comments? Email Doug at: shakedowndoug@hotmail.com

Ski Areas CONT. FROM COVER slope is actually a glade, which means it’s a run with lots of trees in it. That’s part of the challenge, being among the trees.” The new Gobbler Glade will be located off a slope called Woodpecker, and is for expert skiers. Eshbaugh notes an increase in the size of snow making capacity on two of the main ski slopes, Champaign and Independence. In addition, Holiday Valley has purchased six new rails for their terrain park. “They will be in an area for people (snowboarders or skiers) learning to ride the rails, so they can get the hang of it before using the bigger parks.” And in the tubing park, expansion of the warming hut at the base provides an additional

ECS CONT. FROM COVER

The changes will affect some of the lower grades as well as the high school kids, “We’re going to be introducing a new seventh and eighth grade technology curriculum this year.” Technology programs begun last year will be expanded. “We started a robotics program last year; (this year) we bought the software and the high end computers – they require a little bit more powerful computer. So we’re locating these computers in this area,” He goes on to reflect, “In the old days, technology was a lot about wood shop and metal shop and things like that.” It

Fire

CONT. FROM COVER that there are two basic ways the program can be set up. A Defined Contribution Plan is easy to administer as the annual payments into the plan are easy to predict. A Defined Benefit Plan sets a target payment for the firefighters depending on their length of service, and can be more challenging to administer, as annual contributions to the plan can vary depending on market conditions. Defined Benefit Plans generally result in high payouts for the retiree. He stated that in general investment costs for the program can vary quite a bit, but average about $500 per volunteer per year (maximum is $700.) Ellicottville has about 48 active volunteer firefighters.

Planning CONT. FROM COVER There will be an outdoor putting and chipping green as well as a fire pit added as well on the grounds of the property. Central offices and a Reception desk will also be located within the Clubhouse. The additional buildings still yet to be constructed may be utilizing the same amount of ground space but will be reduced in terms

room for warming up and games. Over at HoliMont, the Canfield Project has been re-named the WestMont Ridge Project. “In terms of where we’re going with it, we’re pretty much right on track,” according to General Manager David Riley. HoliMont is trying to secure final plan approval through the Town of Mansfield. Riley hopes to get it by October. On October 9th at 1 p.m., HoliMont will have a groundbreaking ceremony for WestMont Ridge. “Shortly thereafter, we will start the presale of some of the phase one lots. If that goes well, we will probably start groundbreaking in the spring of 2011 for putting in the roads, sewer and water.” The project calls for construction of 72 condominiums and 93 single-family lots. It also calls for building a new chalet, a new beginner area, and a new lift-served slope that will be

lighted at night. Riley says, “It’s a large project (and will take) seven years or possibly more.” Selling some of the condominiums should start fairly soon but “will take a little longer (than the phase one lots) to get organized.” Riley is pleased with progress being made on the $22-million expansion project, noting it took only about a year and a half to obtain State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) approval, which is “very quick for a project of this size.” Clearing trees and brush in the roadway area is being done, along with surveying and staking the property. “This will allow people to come look at the thirty-one single-family lots” up for sale under phase one of the expansion project, which is funded through the sale of residential lots and condominiums.

would seem that a leap from wood shop to robotics is a pretty good leap. But even a leap that embraces television and robotics is not enough to keep students current. Nevertheless, Mr. Ward and staff constantly strive to keep pace, “Just look at the iPhones, and cell phones. One of the things that we’ve talked about even this summer; we said ‘How can we capture that technology and use it in the classroom?’ Rather than making forty rules to prevent you from using your cell phone, let’s find ways be able to use the cell phone.” He goes on to tell me about his own Blackberry and even mentions that Facebook - when kept under control - can be useful. “We have to respect the world the young people are in and

capture them in that world.” Even the music program has benefited from new technology, “We added a small (computer) 78 CONEWANGO RD, RANDOLPH, NY 14772 • JUST 25 MINUTES FROM ELLICOTTVILLE! lab into the music department so that they can use software with the students, in both the instrumental and vocal music programs.” Still Mark realizes that technology is no replacement for solid academics. “The new Commissioner of Education for New York State is really going to push the envelope on testing and accountability for students.” He goes on to say, “The scores that were acceptable last year will not be acceptable this year.” Yet the many challenges don’t diminish his enthusiasm for the coming year telling me, “We’re excited about this whole adventure!”

David Rogers spoke to the investment side of the program. Not only is he a partner in Penflex, but is an investment manager with RBC Wealth Management. He stated that the fire commission can establish a program for the invested money that can be as aggressive or as conservative as they chose. He said that he manages the money with a combination of securities and fixed income assets; setting a target of around a 5.5% annual return. He stated that the fire board would be given a complete list of investment assets and annual financial statement showing exactly how much money is in the fund. The two men went on to emphasize how closely they would work with the fire board in designing the Ellicottville program, and would set up workshops and training sessions

for the staff to properly administer the program. They pointed out that there must be a public referendum and simple majority voter approval to establish the program. There was discussion about trying to get a ballot measure on the November 2 election, but the boards decided that it would not give them enough time to properly inform the public about the proposal. It was pointed out that the costs for a special election to decide the matter are not prohibitive. A motion was made to continue with the steps necessary to design the program and establish 2011 as the base year. The motion passed. No discussion was held as to when the referendum would take place. The boards thanked the two men for the presentation and a motion was made to adjourn.

of square footage. Current units have been built in the range of 3,400-3,600 square feet and units to be constructed will now be built in the range of 2,2002,800 square feet. The official name of the property itself has also changed. The official title for the complex will now be known as “EllicotVillas,” instead of the current, “Morning Side Estates.” Mr. Dean assured the Board that although many changes are being made to the seemingly stagnant project, that construction of the

Clubhouse would begin in Spring 2011 and that there would still be a cohesive look throughout the new complex despite changes in construction plans. The Board agreed that all the changes brought forth by Mr. Dean were not only necessary but also refreshing in the progress they promised on this project. Mr. Dean will meet with the board again to present completely changed blueprints and firm plans for approval in the near future. The meeting was brought to a close at approximately 7:10 pm.
