Co. Planning Board Subdivision Approved

Board Reviews Village Project, Discusses Master Plan By Nicholas Pircio WPIG, 95.7 FM At their meeting held last Thursday, February 23rd, the Cattaraugus County Planning Board approved a request from the Village of Ellicottville, thus advancing plans by a private developer for building renovations and new construction. Discussion at the meeting also centered on updating the Cattaraugus County Comprehensive Plan.

proposing a $5.3-million project near the corner of East Washington and Mill Streets. “They are proposing to construct a 4,000 square foot addition to one building, which will be a convenience store,” according to James Isaacson, Cattaraugus County Senior Planner. “The other structure will be developed into a commercial building.” The proposal will move the KwikFill from one side of Mill Street to the other side. Isaacson said,” It will be larger than what is over there now, with twice as many gas pumps. The building to the right (as seen in the diagram on the continuation page) will be a commercial building, with retail and office space.” Sixtyfive parking spaces are planned for See STATION page 13

Town Planning Board Discusses New Developments By John Thomas Staff Writer

At the Town Planning Board meeting Monday night the board heard plans presented by Joseph Jedrzejek to continue with the final plat application for the subdivision being proposed for Jed Lane. The preliminary plat had been approved in 2006, but now the property owner is ready to move forward with phase one of the housing subdivision. A change to sub lot two was discussed. The developer had added an access road across the lot to connect another lot with the road. The board had some concerns about the setback for a house built on that lot. The zoning codes call for a minimum 60 foot setback, but the applicant proposed a front setback of

150 feet. This setback would provide for a minimum lot width of 200 feet, measured at the front yard setback; the minimum lot width established by code. The board also recommended that the remainder lot to be retained by the Home Owners Association should be specified as a non-buildable lot. In reviewing the past application the board found that the final application was substantially in agreement with the original proposal. There was discussion about bringing the existing road up to the standards specified in the application, although Jed Lane will always be considered a private road. The board came up with a list of several concerns including: turning over the lot to the HOA, and improving the road. They voted to accept the plans with See BUILD page 13

I’m Chuck Carlson, and I’m a Dealer for the People. I Believe Everyone Deserves to Drive a Newer, Safer, More Reliable Vehicle. See Me Today, and Drive Away with the Car You Deserve.

Publisher’s Word FYI - Mardi Gras is NEXT Weekend... We’re starting to transition out of Ellicottville’s peak season, but fear not. So, everyone should be happy. Those who can’t wait for springtime can finally see the (warm) light at the end of the tunnel. And if they can’t, then this is exactly what Florida was invented for. And the avid snowsports fans still have thirty or so days of skiing left. Perfect or what? It’s certainly been a very busy, successful and fun winter season in this corner of the Enchanted Mountains. Thanks in no small part to Holiday Valley, HoliMont and our good ol’ Chamber, there’s been plenty to keep locals and visitors alike

“phat and happy” during our snowy months. Seriously, show of hands – who honestly can say they were bored this winter? Anybody? No one? I knew it … It’s a perfect recipe for fun each and every year. Add a dash of vertical, a sprinkle of snow, a tablespoon of gorgeous scenery and a spoonful of creative, dedicated individuals and this little village becomes a fabulous dish to pass year after year! So, dear readers, make plans for F-L-A later this month or next, but please take advantage of this wonderful time of the season in this magical little village. Until next week … Jeanine Zimmer

Kay L. Henning March 19, 1938 - February 15, 2012

Kay L. Henning, 73, Patton Road, Brockway, P.A., died Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2012, at DuBois Regional Medical Center. Born March 19, 1938, in Salamanca, N.Y., she was a daughter of the late Kenneth A. and Olive L. Dunbar Velie Sr. of Little Valley, N.Y. She enjoyed gardening, sewing, cooking and her grandchildren. Kay survived polio when she was 11 and spent 11 months in a iron lung. Her horse flipped over o her at age 14 and she lost a kidney.

At 18, she was in a horrible car accident and spent six months in a coma. About 15 years ago, she had a large brain tumor removed, which probably was a result of her many serious injuries. “The day before she passed away, I talked to her in the hospital and she sounded like herself. She referred to me as ‘Tippy-Toes,’ even though I’m 67 years old, said her brother Bill. “I will miss her and remember the good times we had growing up.” Love from your brothers Allen and Bill.

She is survived by a son Kent W. Kuhaneck of Clarence, P.A.; a daughter, Brenda Jean Williams of Brockway, P.A.; two brothers, Kenneth Allen Velie of Lancaster, N.Y., and William James Velie of Flagstaff, A.Z.; and six grandchildren. All services will be private and held at the convenience of the family. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the Carlson-Shugarts Funeral Home Inc. of Brockway.

Community Blood Drive

OGH and Red Cross Team Up for Leap Day Blood Drive Feb 29th Donors will get an extra chance during February 2012 to give the gift of life. Olean General Hospital and the American Red Cross are giving donors the chance to donate blood on Leap Day, which comes only once every four years, by hosting a community blood drive on February 29 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Olean General Hospital , 515 Main Street in Olean. The Red Cross is encouraging all current eligible and new blood donors to come out on this rare

occasion and roll up a sleeve to help those in need of blood. A blood donation can help save the life of a real person in your community. Blood is an essential component for patient care in area hospitals, and the only source of blood is a healthy, volunteer blood donor. Leap Day may be rare, but it is the perfect time of year to show your support and give back to the Olean community, as the Red Cross now serves as primary supplier of blood products and

services to the Olean General Hospital.    As an added Leap Day bonus, all presenting donors are eligible for a chance to keep cozy in an American Red Cross Fleece Jacket. One fleece jacket has been raffled off every day during the month of February. Bradford Regional Medical Center and Olean General Hospital are members of Upper Allegheny Health System.

New Food Studies Program St. Bonaventure Study Abroad Students Enrolled in Program

Carrie Wozniak poses before wheels of cheese during a field trip as part of Umbra
                 Institute’s Food Studies Program. ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y., Feb. 22, 2012 — St. Bonaventure University juniors Alex Teixeira and Carrie Wozniak were among the attentive students taking photos and asking questions as the maestro casaro (master cheesemaker) at a small cooperative in the fields outside Parma, Italy, talked while stirring huge copper kettles with his hands.   “This is a painstaking process, an art,” Antonio Parentelli told the students. “Making perfect parmigiano means hands-on work, not punching buttons on a machine.”   It also requires dedication, the students learned. Parentelli had just returned to work from vacation, only the second one he’d taken in his 35 years of making 200-pound wheels of parmesan cheese. The owners of the cooperative – 12 dairy farmers who own the small cheese factory – are pretty demanding, he said.   For Teixeira, Wozniak and

their fellow students at the Umbra Institute in Perugia, a central Italian city known for its chocolate and its 35,000 university students, the trip to the cheese cooperative was a once-in-a-lifetime learning experience. “I was really surprised at the large amounts of food that could still be produced with a few workers and no hugefactory,” said Wozniak. “The whole trip was awesome.” The St. Bonaventure students are spending a semester in Perugia through the university’s Franciscan Heritage Program, an undergraduate study abroad opportunity underwritten by St. Bonaventure University in association with the Umbra Institute, and serving students from Franciscan-affiliated campuses in the United States. The Franciscan Heritage Program is directed by Dr. Michael Chiariello, a professor of philosophy who has taught at St. Bonaventure since 1970.   Teixeira, a journalism and mass communication major from Mystic, Conn., and Wozniak, an accounting major from Tonawanda, N.Y., are taking classes in Umbra Institute’s new Food Studies Program.   “St. Bonaventure, through my efforts, is deeply engaged in the development of this cuttingedge program,” said Chiariello. “In addition to courses in the sociology, business and environmental aspects of food, I am working with Zachary Nowak, program coordinator, to develop and team-teach a course in food ethics.”   The course will have a decidedly Franciscan dimension, said Chiariello.   “It will cover such topics as

the responsibilities of the food industry; the moral dimensions of diet choices: a meat-based vs. plant-based diet; the environmental aspects of food production; factory farming; genetically modified food production; and, of course, our responsibility to the hungry of the world,” he said. The new program combines a rigorous classroom schedule with food workshops and field trips, said Nowak. “It encourages students to think about the fact that while we eat three times a day, we hardly ever stop to ask the basic questions about how or what we eat. Where does the food come from? Is it important that it be local or organic? What do the labels really mean? These questions are fundamental to life in our globalized world,” he said.  

The visit with the parmesan maker was part of a weekend field trip that included a stop at a small prosciutto cooperative and at a family run balsamic vinegar shop.   “I really enjoyed the weekend,” said Teixeira. “It was cool to get an inside look at how some of my favorite Italian foods are made.”   Chiariello said the new Food Studies Program is developing a series of internships that will be modeled after those already in place for Franciscan Heritage Program students. “We have been placing interns with Olio Costa D’Oro, an olive oil producer based in Spoleto, since 2008,” he said.   For more information about the Franciscan Heritage Program, go to For information about the Food Studies Program at Umbra Institute, go to www.umbra. org/academics/food-studies

Dept. of Aging Grant

Catt County Department of the Aging Awarded $250 Grant

Cherianne Wold, director of the Cattaraugus County Department of theAging, is proud to announce the receipt of a $250 grant from Meals on Wheels Association of America (MOWAA) in recognition of the department’s participation in the “Share the Love” Most Meals Contest sponsored by MOWAA and Subaru. MOWAA is one of five Subaru “Share the Love” Event charitable partners. MOWAA created the Most Meals Contest to foster partnerships between local Meals on Wheels programs and Subaru dealerships. Ms. Wold commented, “Our Senior Wellness and Nutrition program staff took the initiative to promote the Subaru event on

Facebook and the Cattaraugus County web page because there is no Subaru dealer located in our county. This was the only way we could participate in the contest and it paid off; now our Meals on Wheels program has an additional $250.” The Senior Wellness and Nutrition program will use the monies to help offset recent budget reductions. The Most Meals Contest grants ranged from $250 to $35,000, and the event ran from November 19, 2011 to January 3, 2012. Subaru donates $250 to the customer’s choice of one of five charities, including MOWAA, for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased during “Share the Love.” Over the past three years,

proceeds from the Subaru “Share the Love” Event have provided funds to MOWAA to support its vision to end senior hunger by 2020. “We are honored to be part of ‘Share the Love’ again this year,” said MOWAA President and CEO Enid Borden. “Subaru is a corporation with a conscience. They understand that providing nutritious meals to hungry and homebound seniors in need is a moral imperative.” For information regarding the Meals on Wheels program in Cattaraugus County, or any other services available to Cattaraugus County seniors, please contact the Department of the Aging at 716-373-8032 or 800-462-2901.

Established in 1825, the 800acre Forrestel Farm in Medina has evolved from a working farm into a horseback rider’s mecca here in Western New York. Mary Herbert, owner and operator of Forrestel, is part of the fifth generation of family members stewarding this historic and highly regarded equestrian center. First purchased by Joseph Ellicott, for whom Ellicottville was eventually named, the property changed hands several

times before it was occupied by Herbert’s Great, Great Uncle Ryan, who farmed the land and later died in a farm-related accident. Mary’s grandfather, Eugene Peter (E.P.) Forrestel later purchased the land from his brother-in-law during the Great Depression. E.P. was an up-and-coming businessman with a passion for horses and a growing love of agriculture. He bred and raised Belgian Draft Horses and fostered a passion for horses in his daughter, Marjorie Forrestel. His legacy of hard work and horses lives on today in Forrestel Farm

Riding & Sports Camp. In 1980, Mary Herbert returned to Western New York after graduating from college and began to develop her own program at Forrestel. What started as a small horseback riding day camp catering to local children has become a world-class overnight camp that hosts children and counselors from across the globe. Providing a well-rounded and traditional camp experience, the overnight camp for girls ages 7-16 includes one- and two-week sessions which cater to the needs of riders with varying levels of experience, and offers other specialty camp activities including pottery, archery, tennis, kayaking and much more. The food at camp doesn’t travel far as it is mostly farm fresh, some of it coming from their own camp garden, and other local produce farms. Not just for girls, Forrestel’s Sports & Adventure Program is an exciting and engaging summer camp opportunity for girls and boys to learn about team dynamics and how their own individual qualities can be used to make a team stronger as a whole. Each day brings a new challenge, with campers learning cooperation and respect for their team in a fun and non-competitive environment. In addition to summer camp, Forrestel has year-round riding lessons, an IEA team for children grades 6-12, trail rides and weekend riding packages, as well as a tour program for seniors and school children. To learn more about this local treasure, contact Forrestel Farm at (585) 798-2222, visit their web site – www.forrestel. com - or attend their Annual Spring Open House on Sunday, May 20 from 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m.

The Youth Series At The Reg Lenna Civic Center is adding two shows to its spring schedule. Jamestown High School will present “Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella” in March.  In May, juggler and jester, Nels Cremean will perform “Possibilities”.         Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella will be presented on Wednesday March 21 at 10am as Jamestown High School’s annual musical.   Cinderella works hard to keep up the household, tormented by her mean stepsisters and stepmother.  When the chance to

escape her existence arrives in the form of a fairy godmother, she takes it!   A royal ball, a handsome prince and magic bring this   story to enchanting heights!   The words and music of Rodgers and   Hammerstein will have audiences enthralled. Nels Cremean’s “Possibilities” will be the final show of the Youth Series on Wednesday May 16 at 10am.  In this madcap misadventure, a bumbling yet   endearing “modern jester” models and addresses principles of good   character. Through physical theater, incredible

juggling, hilarious humor, and edge-of-your-seat stunts, he conveys the importance of having   a positive attitude, giving your best, and making good choices. Based   on the principle that every fool has value and potential, it’s a  oneof-a-kind, side-splitting, gravity-defying, thoughtprovoking  performance. The Youth Series is presented by Arts Council For Chautauqua County.  To order tickets call 716-484-7070.   All tickets are $5.  The Reg Lenna Civic Center is located at 116 East Third Street in Jamestown, NY.

Kenneth Brown : “The King of Ellicottville” Passes Away

By Sharon Turano Freelance Writer A man who was known to make everyone smile during his life is continuing to do so even after his death. Kenneth Brown, also known as “the King of Ellicottville, died Feb, 22 at Mercy Hospital in Buffalo. “He enjoyed what he did and wanted others to enjoy,” said Pete Widger about Ken, who Mr. Widger taught to ski. Mr. Widger recalls it was about

1959 when a “fun-loving bunch of crazy guys that were great athletes” travelled from Canada for a skiing lesson. That class, he said, resulted in Ken’s introducing other people to Ellicottville, to where he eventually booked tours. “He wanted to make it better for all he met,” recalls Mr. Widger about Ken, adding even though he was a great hockey player and athlete, he was never one to brag, but, rather was kind to everyone. If people had trouble, Ken

would find the best way to diffuse problems in his search to make everyone happy, said Mr. Widger. “He was full of enthusiasm,” said Mr. Widger. Jane Eshbaugh, marketing director for Holiday Valley, echoed those sentiments. She recalls Ken dressing up in platform shoes with gigantic gloves and decorated in Christmas lights in his quest to be named the “King of Ellicottville” during winter carnival. Soon, she said, others quit trying to beat Ken. “He won so many times people gave up,” she said, adding Ken was in it for the fun. Perhaps that is why he introduced many to the place she said people come to for fun. She said Ken was “kind of like Ellicottville” in that way, as “both could be described as fun”, she said. Although Ken may not have realized he would bring busloads to Ellicottville the day he and some friends with whom he played hockey in Canada with decided to try skiing, some in the village said he did just that. “Ellicottville owes him thanks,” she said, adding Ken put Ellicottville on the map in Canada, from where he originated. Those remembering him after his recent death continue to smile because he shared the sport of skiing he came to love with so many, even if that involved dressing up in Christmas lights striving to be the Village’s King.

“Portraits in Shadow” Collin Everett Returns to Wright Gallery in Jamestown

Collin Everett’s “Portraits In Shadow” marks the return of the Wright Gallery to the area arts scene. The exhibit opened on Saturday February 25 with a public reception at 6pm.  It continues through March 31.

In these shadow sculptures, the sculpture itself, composed of various items, is not the only work of art. The sculpture is completed when a light shone on this assortment of objects reveals its purpose, in the form of a shadow.  Light and shadow alone compose this instant portrait.  Each sculpture utilizes a material that might have been discarded.  These objects are given purpose when light is projected on them to reveal a hidden image. Collin Everett is a senior at Falconer High School.  He has been interestedin the arts since he began piano lessons at the age of five.  During his time at Falconer, he has also expanded his art to other forms.  His

drawings and sculptures have been represented at the schoolwide Art Show for several years and have won recognition. He hopes to hive this passion for art and sculpture a usefulness that extends beyond its ordinary form by studying architecture.  In the future, he plans to attend a college studying both music performance and architecture. The Wright Gallery is located on the 2nd Floor of the Arts Council For Chautauqua County at 116 East Third Street in Jamestown, NY. Gallery hours are 10am-4pm, Monday through Friday. Private viewings off-schedule may be made by calling 716-664-2465, ext. 227.

Architectural Digest Bring the Gang

Story and Photos By John Thomas Staff Writer

Approached from the outside this cedar exterior chalet on Northwood seems to be a modest ski home. It looks like a family of four could shoulder in for a ski weekend. But that impression changes quickly when you go through the front door. The main living area is on the entry level floor. The master suite and two other bedrooms are on this level as well as two full baths. There are also the kitchen, dining room, and living room on this level. Walk into

the living room and you get the first sense of the real size of the place. The living room is large and comfortable, and its tall bank of windows frame the view of the slopes at HoliMont and Holiday Valley. The lower level offers another complete living area. The stairway to the ground floor is right inside the front entrance. This level could accommodate guests or family comfortably. This level has a large family room, reading room, full bath and 2 more bedrooms. But it also has a complete kitchen. The two more bedrooms and one baths here

bring the total to five and three respectively. Add to this a sauna, and a sitting room with its own entertainment center, and you have a house large enough for family and guests. Since this is Ellicottville, everything is close by. It’s a short drive to the slopes and a short walk to the downtown shops and restaurants. In Summer, Holiday Valley Golf is near, as are other courses, and Allegheny State Park is just a bit further. For more information about this chalet contact Dave Blanchard, GRI Assoc. Broker at Holiday The back of the house reveals its true size: two stories with lots of room to spread out. Only Valley Realty at 716-699-3954. the main level is visible from the street in front.

Truth Or Consequences One Mans Faith Is Another Mans Sword

Bonded, Insured and Proudly Celebrating 32 Years of Service

Doug Arrowsmith

In 1960, while seeking to become President of the United States of America, John F. Kennedy was forced to defend himself and his religion against a calculated barrage of attacks from the GOP and other forces on the right who doubted his abilities as a leader. It wasn’t his lack of faith they questioned but, rather, the faith he chose to follow.  John Kennedy was attempting to become Americas first Catholic president and his opponents questioned his loyalty.  America or Rome?  The Pope or the Constitution?  During a campaign stop in Houston before a gathering of ministers Kennedy addressed his detractors by stating that he  “believed in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute.  Where no Catholic prelate would tell the President how to act, and no Protestant ministers would tell his parishioners for whom to vote.”  He went on to state that he believed “in an America that is officially neither Catholic, Protestant, nor Jewish…Where

religious liberty is so indivisible that an act against one church is treated as an act against all.” Kennedy, admired and revered now, was an “Obamalike” divisive figure in 1960.  America loved or hated him.  Then they shot him.      Fast forward to 2012.  Another Presidential election and another young, Catholic Congressman seeking the Highest political office in the land.  When asked about that famous Kennedy speech, Rick Santorum said that it made him “want to throw up.”  He says that he doesn’t believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute.  These are strange days my friends.  Strange days indeed.      The Constitution is a funny little piece of paper.  It’s the original optical illusion.  Ten people can look at it and see ten different things.  Santorum seems to be a big fan of the Constitution, as do the other candidates running this year.  I’ve never heard of a candidate running for any office who didn’t claim an absolute reverence for our most famous document.  The problem lies in interpretation.  Santorum and his ilk seem to have no problem envisioning an American Theocracy.  A fundamentalist, Christian state where all others are shunned or, at least, marginalized by their different faiths.  How else can one explain his reaction to the Kennedy speech?  A speech that seems to reinforce and reiterate a good chunk of our founding principles.  Playing to the lowest common denominator

has become common practice during this campaign and attempting to distort history and subvert the constitution has become the go to move in this years political play book.     Religion has become, as it was in 1960, the low blow move of 2012.  Santorum has accused the President of following a “phony theology,” and refused to question or correct audience members who have accused the President of being a radical Muslim.  In fact, almost every candidate in the GOP field has made some sort of veiled reference to nut job claims about Obama’s religion.  Santorum, of course, has failed to grasp the simple fact of Kennedy’s original message.  If this were 1960, it would be Santorum who would be defending himself against claims that he is somehow “different” because of his “odd” beliefs.        We’ve seen how theocracies work.  We know that, in the end, they will fail.  One mans faith is another mans sword and that is not how America works.  Kennedy knew this and stood up during a very dangerous period of history and proclaimed his independence. Kennedy knew that, just as the bible proclaimed,  a persons relationship with their God was a private matter.  Today, however, there are forces at work that would distort both the bible and the constitution. It’s becoming harder and harder to distinguish between the candidate and the preacher. The next president or the next evangelist.  Is this what we want?  Is this America?

When we think of the different organs in the body, the skin might not be the number one in our list. The skin is not only an organ, it is the largest organ, and it represents 15 percent of the body weight. Like other organs your skin is extremely sensitive and it reacts to changes in your diet, your general activity and life style in general. Sleep well and look good: When you sleep seven to nine hours every night, it is one of the best ways to keep the skin young and radiant. When you don’t sleep enough hours, your cells lose the opportunity to repair and rejuvenate. Drink water, preferably live water that

has a more alkaline pH than just regular water from the tap. Water will keep the skin hydrated, flexible and soft. Water will also help to eliminate toxins from the body. Avoid Smoking: Smoking deprives the skin from absorbing nutrients and changes the skin tone to a more pale color, sometimes it looks yellow or grey. It also contributes to make more deep and premature lines. Nurture your skin from the inside out: A healthy diet is important, raw food, specially veggies in all different colors. Supplement your diet with vitamins and antioxidants, for instance, Vitamin E, C and A. It has been shown that antioxidants help to minimize the signs of premature aging, because they reduce the free radical damage, another option for antioxidants is Thai-go Juice, a mix of amazing fruits charged with nutrients. Super Omega 3 Oil are important too, it could be fish or flax seed oil. Keep Active: Physical activity stimulates the nutrients in the blood flow through tiny capillary vessels in the skin. Regular exercise promotes the production of collagen, which may help diminish premature aging. Using organic skin products is very important as well. I personally like NYR Organics, with natural essential oils that give your skin an amazing touch of nutrition and

beauty. Like the skin, the hair and nails also change as we age. The hair grows slower and starts losing pigmentation. The nails tend to be thinner, they break more easily. There some herbal combinations that can make a healthy hair, skin and nails. HSN-W is one of my favorite formulas; it is a nutrient rich herbal blend that supplies vitamins, minerals and trace minerals, including calcium and silica, which are necessary for the growth and maintenance of healthy hair, skin and nails. Horsetail is one of the main ingredients. It contains more silica than any other herb in a form that is highly absorbable. Silica, also referred as silicon, is a trace mineral found in highest amounts in the hair and skin. Silicon is essential for the formation of collagen and elastin, which are proteins responsible for the elasticity, tone and texture of the skin. Therefore, silicon deficiency can lead to poor skin quality, as well as dry, brittle hair and soft, weak nails that break or split as they grow. It also contains Dulse, a red algae with high amounts of iron, calcium, iodine, magnesium, manganese and potassium. Rosemary promotes circulation, strengthens the capillary vessels. Sage has strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and helps with circulation as well.

There is a lot of “overlap”a between country & oldr time.   Old time focuses oni (mostly) tunes & songs that weres popular before 1940, countryi focuses on songs popular afterr 1950.  Also old time is primarilyw tune (instrumental) based, butw every so often we’ll sing an oldw song. g More information visit http://e or contact Howard Blumenthal, 814-3684057, howard@blumenthals. com.

professional riders, “anybody at any fitness level can participate.” He promises that “anybody who pulls the trigger” (starts the race) will be supported along the way. He adds, “they always cross the finish line with a smile on their face.” Riders aren’t the only people invited to take part, volunteers are needed every day of the event and all along the course. He invites everybody to come and volunteer to be “inside the fence,” promising that all volunteers will have a great day. Centurion also invites local non-profit organizations to take advantage of the event by taking utilizing their Charity Partnership Program. Any charity that organizes a 25-member team can use the race for fund raising, and receive a lot of support from Centurion. Over the years Centurion has earned an excellent reputation for supporting the communities where it holds events.

Centurion was founded by Graham Fraser to promote the sport of cycling. A former Iron Man Triathlon participant and organizer, he was the principal organizer of the Subaru Triathlon. Graham spent years organizing many triathlon events across the US. Over time he was a little less willing to maintain the training discipline needed to engage in the sport, but found that the cycling portion of a triathlon was something he still enjoyed. He found that organizing charity bike races gave him a new direction, and would help raise awareness of cycling the country. Registration and trail maps for the Ellicottville race can be found on their web site This message was brought to you by the official Newspaper Sponsor of the Centurion Cycling event: The Villager.

Updating County Comprehensive Plan The County Planning Board also discussed updating the county’s 30-year-old Comprehensive Plan, or vision, for growth and community development. They are being assisted by Laura Ryan of Buffalo, who has a background in mechanical engineering and agriculture, and has worked with state and local government e agencies. She stresses creativity and problem solving, while s acknowledging that resources may be limited. Ryan told the l board she was there to listen to a their suggestions. Eventually,

public input will be sought to develop a new Comprehensive Plan. Ryan said she will continue to work with the planning board as it sets its goals. Goals for the county as suggested at the meeting would address familiar concerns such as keeping young people from leaving the area, insufficient housing, and property being taken off the tax rolls. Another goal would be to strike a balance in the use of land for agriculture and gravel mining. Also, how do you attract foreigners to develop a business? And what products do foreign markets want? Referring to people now in their 30s and 40s, board member Robert Keis noted, “All of western New York is missing a complete generation of talent.” Crystal Abers added that water, sewer, and high-speed internet are all issues.

As the board composes and ranks a list of priorities, they stress that the current discussion is very preliminary. Isaacson believes it will take at least a few years to develop the Comprehensive Plan, and that it took three years to do so in Chautauqua County. Public forums could begin this summer. Isaacson said the important to keep in mind is to focus on, “What do we value in our communities? What makes Cattaraugus County special, and what draws people here?” Ryan explained why it is important to update the Comprehensive Plan. “In the global economy that we’re in right now and the state of economic affairs, it’s more important than ever to incorporate creativity and innovation into a strategic plan that will be not only progressive now, but to future generations.”

finding full time work, and may need to move home. He wants to add a one bedroom apartment as a auxiliary to an existing barn. The area is designated low density housing and the board pointed out that there are already several existing residences on the lot. It was suggested that he split the lot into two parcels, which would give him room to build an apartment. For a while it appeared that Mr. Obenauer would not get approval for his plans, one of the board members stated, “As it stands now it can’t be done,” referring to the three buildings already on the property. However, in an

attempt to find a way to grant his request, the board looked at the zoning laws to find the exact definition of an accessory apartment. In looking over the laws, it appeared that there might be several ways to accommodate his plans. The codes indicate that a lot can have more than one principal use, which might allow for another auxiliary building, or he might be able to split a lot in two and build on the second lot. It was felt that the town attorney should be consulted. The board moved to accept the application as incomplete until the Town Planner has a chance to consult the Town Attorney.

Together, Brewer and Schacher have created a dynamic and multi-talented five piece band that will not only carry on the tradition of Grand Funk hits, but also has the potential to create a new chapter in the legacy of Grand Funk Railroad. With Grand Funk reforming in 2000, this new chapter in the band’s biography is being written daily.    Both seasoned Grand

Funk lovers and contemporary rock fans-- discovering the group for the first time on CDs and VH-1-- will be able to see and hear firsthand that Grand Funk Railroad’s train is back on track. “We’re Comin’ To Your Town, We’ll Help You Party It Down, WE’RE AN AMERICAN BAND!!!” Check out next week’s Villager for an interview with the band.
