February is shaping up to be a great month for skiing in Ellicottville, and thanks to the local adaptive ski programs, everyone has the chance to participate. Next Saturday, February 12, HoliMont Ski Area will host the seventh annual Phoenix International Adaptive Race. In addition, Holiday Valley Resort will be hosting their annual adaptive fundraiser, the Penguin Paddle, two weeks later on Saturday, February 26. The Phoenix Adaptive Program, which has been operating at HoliMont for the past 15 years, offers individuals with physical and mental disabilities the opportunity to build both the confidence and skills to learn how to ski. “This race is a way for HoliMont and leaders of the Adaptive Program to give the adaptive skiing community a chance to build their abilities, strengths and expectations,” said Chuck Richardson, Director of the Phoenix Adaptive Program. “By having this race, HoliMont and Ellicottville are allowing the various adaptive ski programs in the region to unite and share their love of the sport while building awareness of the program and

its goals.” He added that those taking part in the race will have the opportunity to demonstrate the pride they take in participating in their favorite pastime, and they will have bragging rights to show their friends in the form of trophies presented after the race. The race is divided into Beginner, Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced groups. Two types of races take place at the event, a personal best race of two runs for the beginner and novice groups, and a competitive race for novice through the advanced group. Richardson expects about eight teams and over 80 racers from around the region, to take part in the race. He added there are usually four teams from the U.S. and four from Canada. He said last year he had individual racers from Austria and Hungry take part in the race, and has had people from as far away as Australia compete in the past. Last year’s event featured the first “Winter’s Warriors” race in which wounded veterans competed against each other in races. Richardson said he expects the veterans to compete again this year, and that they are mostly comprised of SEE ADAPTIVE PAGE 11

Next Saturday, Feb. 12, HoliMont Ski Area will host the seventh annual Phoenix International Adaptive Race (pictured, left.) The skiers participating in the race are part of the adaptive program and are there to build up self-esteem and confidence. Those taking part in the race will have the opportunity to demonstrate the pride they take in participating in their favorite pastime. In addition, Holiday Valley Resort will host their annual adaptive program fundraiser, the Penguin Paddle, two weeks later on Saturday, Feb. 26. This features hundreds of people sliding down the slopes on black garbage bags while lying on their bellies like a penguin (pictured, right). The event is held to raise money to benefit the Lounsbury Adaptive Ski Program for the physically and mentally challenged, a chapter of Disabled Sports USA. Participants donate a dollar for the opportunity to slide down the slope.

Zoning Board Gives Go-Ahead to Condo Development STORY AND PHOTO BY JOHN THOMAS, STAFF WRITER At the Village Zoning Board of Appeals meeting Tuesday night the board gave final approval for John Northrup’s planned Village Place condo development off Van Buren Place. The discussion began with a public hearing to hear Mr. Northrup’s appeal to an earlier Zoning Board decision. Mr. Northrup stated that in looking over the plans for the roof design he had realized the roof was likely to shed snow onto the deck of the unit. He was requesting permission to move the deck around to the front of the condo. In further SEE ZBA PAGE 10

The board expressed concerns about drainage for the development. The architect who has been working on the project was present at the meeting and explained that he had installed a swale along the south side of the property line to help the drainage.

Boarding for Breast Cancer Next Saturday Nationwide Initiave Returns to Holiday Valley: ‘Pink’ about It! BY BRITTANY WHITE

Inside Business: New Trail at SBU ... page 5 On-Campus Recreational Trail, 3 Years in the Making By Nichols Pircio, WPIG 95.7 FM In describing the new trail (depicted above in the yellow line), Associate Vice President Phil Winger said it will link up to the main trail immediately. “What this is, is a shorter on-campus sub-route of the (existing) trail, about three miles in length. So a person starting at the campus could go around the whole thing, or just this partial loop. The other aspect is that it will create another route across the campus near Route 417, but back a bit (from the road.)

Get ready snowboarders and skiers in the Western New York area, because the 3rd Annual Boarding for Breast Cancer Board-a-thon is set for next Saturday, February 12, 2011. Not sure what this event is? Well, it is a wonderful event for snow enthusiasts and even those not so suited for the snow alike, to raise awareness about breast cancer. This occasion will be held at Holiday Valley Resort in Ellicottville, NY. Claiming about 40,000 lives a year, breast cancer is a devastating disease that many organizations have begun to notice and take action against. Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC) has held this event for the past two years in an effort to educate not only women, but everyone, about the risk factors and ways to help prevent the development of breast cancer. With between ten and twelve thousand visitors expected to attend the Board-athon, this event is a great way to send out the message that Monica Steward wanted women of all ages to hear. Monica was the inspiration for B4BC as she suffered from breast cancer at age 26. She was frustrated about the SEE B4BC

This year Holiday Valley is having many different activities in the name of breast cancer. Registration begins at 11am in the Clubhouse Chalet for all those who wish to participate in the day’s events. Starting at noon there will be clinics held specifically for women to learn the basics of snowboarding, so whether you are a beginner wanting to learn how to snowboard or are more advanced and want to move onto the terrain park, the clinics are for you! This year’s goal is to raise $15,000 for the cause.

“The people are incredibly friendly and the town is beautiful – we really love it down there.” This is how one “visitorturned-seasonal resident” described our little village in an article appearing in last week’s Toronto Star. The article, entitled “Is it time to buy real estate in upstate New York”, sings the praises of Ellicottville, the location, the

amenities, the streetscape – you name it. Evidently, not only are we an awesome place to be, but a real bargain, to boot! And to think the writer happened to interview two of our best ambassadors for the article – none other than Louise and Larry Oeffling. Nice job, guys. When the story mentioned Ellicottville’s “Victorian charm”, Louise countered by mentioning “the feedback we get is that this (the village) feels more “real” – there’s less of a branded experience.” Very well put, indeed… And so, here you are. We’re at our absolute peak of winter fun. And the ski conditions? Fabulous – the best we’ve seen in quite a few years down this way. Tonite’s forecast calls for (yet another) foot or so of the white gold. Chilly, you bet – but it does sort of go “handin-glove” (pun intended) with awesome skiing and boarding. So, how will you spend the next six weeks or so? Our buddy Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow today, GUARANTEEING an early spring. Will you hole-up in

your house until the warmer spring temperatures coax you outside? I can tell you our furry buddy does exactly that, and he’s quite groggy and a tad chubby when he finally comes out of the burrow for good. You don’t want to be like Phil, do you? Ellicottville residents and visitors alike should get their collective rears in gear! As we all know, the ski season will be over before you know it. So brave whatever elements there are and take advantage of the best darn skiing/boarding in the east! This is also primetime for snowshoeing, ice skating, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing – you get the picture. Wake up each day and announce to whomever is within ear shot “It’s winter and I’m going to love it here. I just can’t wait to get outside and have some fun” (or words to that effect). So, dear readers, one thing’s for certain. Winter is here, it will continue to be here, and it’s going to stay here until Mother Nature says “they’ve had enough.” So get out there and have a (snow) ball. Until next week… JZ

Dave Schumacher Remembering a Holiday Valley Legend; 9/26/1943 - 2/10/2009

Retracing my steps back in time to February 10th, I now realize how much I took for granted. Dave did so much, handling all the BIG farm projects and upkeep of our horse farm, which I am no responsible for. All that Dave did for me I took for granted. Now, every day as I walk to the horse barn, I give thanks for all my many blessings. The love of horses that brought Dave and I together in high school, was a major part of our family unity and love for over 40+ years and continued to be throughout our lives together. Our horses are now the bond that keeps me all together as I always feel close to Dave when I am around my horses. Skiing at Holiday Valley continues to squeeze my heart with so many wonderful memories. I feel Dave’s presence everywhere. The Statement from Dennis Eshbaugh that his fingerprints have touched every part of the gem called Holiday Valley, and that he provided the opportunity for all of us to continue fulfilling his plans and dreams, is so true. I would like to share some interesting excerpts and comments from friends and coworkers that bring back some memories of Dave’s 43 years at Holiday Valley. Bill Fleckenstein: “I imagine Dave pain free, enjoying a ride on a fine horse through a beautiful valley with mountains around him. He has gone ahead to scout the trails for us so he can show us a good time when we get there.” t Steve Myers: “We are in trouble now! He is watching us ,from above, making sure we do it RIGHT!” Kelly Gebauer: “Dave was the person who spoke up for the Mt. Crew and was a fighter for our rights. He was a great man and highly respected. I learned so much from him that it will carry with me for life. He treated me tjust like one of the guys and expected the same.” Annie (Jacobson) Coolidge: When explaining to her children why Dave was gone: “They needed a Mt. Manager to run the ski resort up above.” Bonnie Koschir: “Dave was an inspiration to me and will be throughout my life. I have so many happy and fond memories.” Jann Wojcik, a Springville GI

and retired teacher: “Some men leave their mark on the world by the way they live and the difference they make in the lives they touch.” Geri Hart, fellow employee: “My first impression of Dave was that he was bigger than life. It was Mr. Schumacher, sir. Over the years he became a gentler giant, but a giant nonetheless. What you saw was what you got, and be careful of what you asked for…because he would tell you what he thought with no holds barred.” President and General Manager of Holiday Valley, Dennis Eshbaugh in his words spoken at Dave’s funeral, February 13, 2009: “I thought I was going to have the last word today, but I think Dave is still making his presence known. Yesterday, with rain and then 4” of virtually un-skiable wet snow, high winds that covered the slopes with branches and finally a power failure that shut down some of the ski lifts, we had to close the area at noon. I have a feeling Dave may be giving advice to God on the weather. When preparing my notes for today and talking with friends and fellow employees, a common denominator in their stories was that they had been yelled at. If you knew Dave and he cared about you, then you’ve been yelled at.” Dennis stated that in case you never experienced being yelled at by Dave, he could assure you that Dave was very good at EVERYTHING he did! He added that Dave had

an invincible steel-like presence (imposing). Along with this was an internal drive and fortitude that allowed him to accomplish difficult things with ease but he hid the things that were most important to him. Dennis concluded with, “Dave, God speed on your next journey and may the challenges meet your expectations. May you find a new mountain and may the people be as resolute as you’ve shown us over your life.” Allen “Skip” Yahn, Past General Manager and having worked with him over a 35-year span recalled Dave working closely with former Board Member, Karney Cochran in developing the snowmaking at the Valley. Skip stated that Dave was not only a fellow employee for many years, but also a vital part in building the foundation of Holiday Valley and what it is today. As my life’s journey continues with so many memories of our lives together, I know my life is richer for the experiences and love we shared. I am more aware of Nature’s beautiful gifts and lovely creations that are all around me. I have been truly blessed to have David in my life. To all my friends and family, I encourage you to remember that “life” is so very precious. Please treat each day as it may be your last. Be thankful for all your blessings and NEVER take anything for granted. With Friendship and Love, Linda Schumacher.

Inside Business: SBU New On-Campus Recreational Trail at St. Bonaventure University BY NICHOLAS PIRCIO, 95.7 FM, WPIG

Plans are moving ahead on the campus of St. Bonaventure University for a new, on-campus recreational trail to hook up with the existing 5.6-mile loop known as the Allegheny River Valley Trail, which runs through Olean and Allegany. Campus roads will also be upgraded. University officials say a delay in the bidding process is enot expected to delay the start aof construction on the project this spring. “Bids were sought 0 this fall and were expected th eto be opened December 15 . aHowever, a conflict between agencies over interpretations of state regulations led to a need to revise the bid documents,” according to a news release from Tom Missel, Director of Media Relations and Marketing for St. Bonaventure University. Phil Winger, Associate Vice President for Facilities at St. Bonaventure, says the project will now be awarded in two separate contracts. One is for the road and trail work, and a separate one for the construction of a warming hut and security outpost behind Doyle Hall. Winger notes that, “Since the basic design is not affected, contractors will be able to revise

their bids quickly.” Bidding should take place this winter, with construction expected to begin in April, “as before, when the weather permits.” The project involves repaving many campus roads, along with the new recreational trail spur and the warming hut and security outpost mentioned above. The bulk of the project is expected to be completed by the time students return to campus in August of 2011. In describing the new trail, Winger said it will link up to the

main trail immediately. “What this is, is a shorter on-campus sub-route of the (existing) trail, about three miles in length. So a person starting at the campus could go around the whole thing, or just this partial loop. The other aspect is that it will create another route across the campus near Route 417, but back a bit (from the road.) That will benefit oncampus student pedestrian traffic going back and forth from their apartments to their classes.” SEE TRAIL PAGE 11

Local Ski Shop Receives National Award from Ski Business Magazine BY MEGAN O’DONNELL ST. BONAVENTURE UNIVERSITY

The popular ski shop, The City Garage, won the national award for “Best Vibe” by Skiing Business, an online magazine. Sean Lowes opened The City Garage with his wife in 1999. The ski shop is open year-round and specializes for each season. During the winter, the store specializes in skis: alpine skis, Nordic skis and Twin Tip skis, just to name a few. Then in the summer, the shop switches gears to provide people with the best in technical summer equipment; including, sunglasses, footwear and The City Garage is the only one in the area to offer stand up paddle boards. The latter is a growing trend on the West Coast that is slowly but surely migrating to the East Coast where The City Garage is fully embracing it. Trey Clauss, The City Garage’s store manager, went to Denver, Colorado with Lowes to receive the award. Clauss, who has worked there for nine years and has lived in the area for the past t 15 years, said that this year was a special year. “This was the first inaugural awards that they (Skiing Business) gave out,” Clauss said. t The ceremony coincided with the SnowSports Industries America trade show. Ten ski shops and three sales representatives were given their awards to honor their contributions to the skiing industry. All of the votes casted for the ski shops were done so by ski manufacturers and/or

The City Garage was one of the only two ski shops to win an award from Skiing Business in New York State.

sales representatives, while the voting was reversed for the sales representatives who won. The City Garage was one of only two ski shops to win an award in New York State. The City Garage won the “Best Vibe” award, but was also nominated in the “Best Customer Engagement” category as well. The Best Vibe award really means that the ski sales representatives, the ones they do and do not work with, believe that The City Garage’s customers have “the best overall perception of the store – the lay out and the store itself,” Clauss

said. What goes along with receiving the national award is that The City Garage will be featured on the e-magazine. The shop wrote a brief 300-word history that included the story of Lowes’s conception of the shop to what it is now. The article is to be revealed this month, but the award ceremony is already up on www.skiingbusiness.com.

Last week ESPN was abuzz with high octane, death defying Winter X Games activity. As it has done for years, Winter X 15 rolled in to Aspen, Colorado and took over the town. As is typical with the X Games it was even bigger than the year before. Boarder and Skier X racers went faster, halfpipe specialists flew higher, Big Air artists spun and flipped in seemingly unnatural ways. It was a spectacle to behold and a testament to the love that people have for winter sports. After all, long gone are the days where ESPN televises anything and everything just to fill air time. The X Games are a ratings grabber. For the most part the X Games are a young athlete’s competition. This is an event where thirty year-olds are considered ancient because there is no shortage of 16, 17, and 18 year-olds throwing down and stomping tricks like seasoned veterans. Once again Shaun White dominated the Super Pipe and when it was all said and done, White took home his forth consecutive Super Pipe gold medal. But the highlight of the pipe competition might have actually been the appearance of Kevin Pearce, who made a surprise visit to the halfpipe Thursday night. Thirteen months ago Pearce suffered a brain injury while training for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and ever since his recovery has been nothing short of miraculous. Not able to snowboard yet he was however recently cleared to get his drivers license and to go surfing; with the stipulation that he wore a helmet of course. After all, it was a snowboard helmet that probably saved his life thirteen months ago. Skiers and riders at HoliMont are well in tune with the importance of helmets. In fact it is a policy that in order to enter

The highlight of the pipe competition during the X Games might have actually been the appearance of Kevin Pearce, who made a surprise visit Thursday night. Thirteen months ago Pearce suffered a brain injury while training for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and ever since his recovery has been nothing short of miraculous. Skiers and riders at HoliMont are well in tune with the importance of helmets. In fact it is a policy that in order to enter the terrain park you must be wearing a helmet.

the terrain park you must be wearing a helmet. This season, in an effort to step up the safety level another notch, HoliMont is offering a terrain park certification course at the Terrain Park Building at the top of Wild Thing. People can watch a twelve-minute video and once they pass a quick exam they are given a SmartStyle sticker that goes on their pass to show they are familiar with terrain park safety and etiquette. SmartStyle is a nationally recognized initiative aimed at enhancing the awareness level of terrain park safety. “We’ve had a great response to the SmartStyle program so far,” said Marcus Stephens who helps oversee the SmartStyle program when he isn’t out with the rest of the park crew working on building and maintaining park features. “I’m seeing an impact with it in the park. Kids are calling their drops, waiting to make sure the person in front of them cleared the landing before they hit a feature; it’s definitely

having an effect. We opened our halfpipe last weekend and based on what I saw in the pipe people are paying attention to the SmartStyle concepts.” This is the earliest that HoliMont has ever opened its halfpipe and with the addition of the new Zaugg Pipe Cutter the pipe is the smoothest it has ever been. The walls are consistently thirteen feet high and the pipe is approximately 300 feet long. Once considered the epitome of snowboarding freestyle, the art of riding halfpipe has been surpassed in recent years as more skiers and boarders start to hit “street” inspired features and more ski resorts have decided not to invest in building a halfpipe. HoliMont is stoked to be able to offer halfpipe fanatics a place to come and show off their skills. As always, non-b members are welcome to come enjoy all that HoliMont has to offer every Monday – Friday. Ifb you plan on hitting up the terrain park and halfpipe just remember to bring your helmet! t

History of Contractor’s Day

Last Friday, Hundreds Gathered for an Afternoon of Fun & Networking p Another successful Contractor’s Day event took place at HoliMont on Friday January 28th. Approximately 40 companies brought over 950 employees/clients to the slopes for a fun-filled day of skiing, snowboarding and making new business contacts. The turnout marked the largest number of participants the event has ever had. “Contractors Day is a staple event at HoliMont,” said HoliMont Group Sales Manager Laura Oakes. “Over the years we’ve been able to bring in a broader spectrum of businesses. The overall response this year was very positive. In fact it was the most successful event to date and we’re looking forward to making the event even better next season.” The event began in 1981 when eleven men from Midland Asphalt, ABC Paving Co., Syracuse Supply, Oakgrove Construction, and Holmes and Murphy got together for a day on the slopes to mix some business with a lot of fun. The ongoing success of the event is due in part to the late Dave Pitkin, a member who was instrumental in bringing the event to HoliMont.

Architectural Digest Custom Country Comfort STORY AND PHOTOS JOHN THOMAS STAFF WRITER

I am feeling rather fortunate driving up to 6723 Wagner in Concord. There is finally a break in the winter weather madness, and bits of sunlight are dotting the landscape. The snow crunches slightly beneath my feet as I walk across the driveway towards the house. What impresses me most as I enter is the feeling of warmth that it instantly creates. The Oak flooring that spreads out before me has been stained a rich brown. The framing around the windows accents the color, and the drapes refine it. The fireplace at the far end of the living room has a stone tile hearth and is framed by a tile and wood mantle; it seems to radiate warmth even without a fire. The windows that frame the fireplace look out to the pond on the property. The decor in the room is an eclectic mix of Country French and Tahoe cabin; the Earth tones blend beautifully and add to the overall character. Over in the spacious kitchen, the same warm feeling continues. The custom made oak cabinets have the same rich stain as the

floors. A beautifully grained granite countertop encircles the working area. The wood in the cabinets even extends to the hood over the gas burning cook top. An oversized window looks over the sink looks out onto the countryside. On the wall opposite the cook top is the builtin oven and microwave. Just off the kitchen is where the real genius of this custom built home really shows. While your average contractor would have just plunked an island breakfast bar in the center of the kitchen, here it is situated just outside the kitchen area. At first I thought it was a dining table, but then I noticed that it chairs on only three sides. The side of the counter facing the kitchen offers more drawers for storage and opposite that is a huge double door pantry. The island breakfast bar is close enough to the work area of the kitchen to be effective as extra work space, but it is outside the working triangle so it’s not an impediment. The breakfast bar is close enough so guests can perch there and still kibitz the cook in the kitchen. For additional eating space, there is a dining table ideally placed between the kitchen and living room by a double door that leads

out to the deck and barbeque. The table has been cleverly positioned so that guests have a direct view of the kitchen, living area, patio and yard. Down the hallway is the Master bedroom suite. Here the color scheme changes from warm tones to cool grays and blues, accented by the wood trim around the doors and windows. The carpet in the Master bedroom is a lighter shade gray and is complimented by the pale blue walls. The Master bathroom features a sunken whirlpool bath and walk-in tiled shower. The stone tile flooring and granite counter tops echo the grays and blues of the bedroom. Down the hall is another bedroom and full bath. It is at the end of the hallway that the smart layout of the house becomes apparent. Here is the laundry and mud room. The door in the mudroom opens out to the parking area in front of the garage. The large two car garage has its own entrance into the mud room. A concrete walkway next to the garage leads around to the front covered porch and leaded glass door entering into the living room. This helps prevent guests or the UPS guy from knocking at the

I am feeling rather fortunate driving up to 6723 Wagner in Concord. Situated on over seven acres of park-like partially wooded land, this is truly a home for all four seasons. The panoramic views from the deck and front porch look out to rolling country hills, and the large pond can be seen through the oversized windows inside the house.

inside the house. The partially fenced back yard is great for animals. The full basement also gives you extra storage/ space. Its location on Wagner Road is far enough out to give you that county feeling and is still only a five minutes to Route 219 and downtown Springville.

Best of all, it is only ten minutes to Kissing Bridge and thirty minutes to Ellicottville. Anybody who gets to own this house is fortunate indeed. For info about purchasing this custom built ranch style home, contact Tina Dillon at ERA Team VP Real Estate, 716-474-5646.

County CONT. FROM FRONT PAGE Wolfe Road. “That’s because there’s some information that is lacking,” according to James Isaacson, Senior Planner with the Cattaraugus County Department of Economic Development, Planning, and Tourism. Plans were to allow gravel mining on a former agricultural field. “But they obviously want to do something different now, and the (County Planning) board needs a little more information,” according to Isaacson. The matter was sent back to the Town of Dayton. SPECIAL USE PERMIT FOR AMISH-RUN PRODUCE STAND IN LITTLE VALLEY In other action, the County Planning Board approved a Special Use Permit for the operation of an Amish-run produce stand in the Town of Little Valley on Route 353, near the junction of Route 242.

ZBA CONT. FROM FRONT PAGE discussion it was reveled that the deck would be on the second story of the units, but apparently that was not considered a problem. The board expressed further concerns about drainage for the development. The architect who has been working on the project was present at the meeting and explained that he had installed a swale along the south side of the property line to help the drainage. There were other concerns about the condos being seen by the neighbors whose property the project borders. There was discussion about moving the units eight feet closer to the road for a bit more privacy. Mr. Northrup responded that he didn’t think it would make much difference, but

somehow managed to compare the uprising in Tunisia to the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and the start of the First World War. He then went on to explain how Marxist Communists and the Muslim Brotherhood were working together to create an Islamic Caliphate in Egypt. The same thing was bound to happen in every other country from Egypt to Ireland! Seriously. I’m not kidding. Beck tied the whole thing together by saying that the Russians and the Chinese were the true puppet masters and would control the entire world besides South America and us before the whole thing was over. Of course our Muslim President would be more than happy to turn us over to them in the end. A Ha! Obama! I knew it. Thanks for clearing all that up Glenn. You are a man among children. A true Prophet! Beck’s mad rambling aside, what should we be concerned about? The so-called Kingdom States that we’ve supported for all these years could be in serious trouble. I’m talking to you Saudi Arabia. Unlike Egypt, the Saudi royal family has been sitting on top of an oil and blood drenched powder keg for generations. They rely entirely on US military support to protect them from their own subjects. How will we react when this uprising spreads to areas that directly affect our standing and power in the region? Oh yea. There are also those pesky oil reserves to be concerned about. But what could possibly go wrong?

Board members noted that the intersection coming off the hill from Ellicottville can be hazardous, but said parking for the seasonal produce stand is well away from traffic, while the stand itself sits a safe distance from the intersection. LOCAL GOVERNMENT FIGURES MADE AVAILABLE SOON Board Vice Chairman Paul Mager discussed the fact that local government figures from the U.S. Census Bureau should soon be made available. Officials are waiting for census figures for counties, towns, villages, and cities. Currently, the only census data that is out are the state and national figures. Isaacson said, “They’ll start rolling out more and more information throughout this coming year, and we’re keeping an eye on it.” New data should start arriving in March or April. PROPOSED SEWER DISTRICT FOR LIME LAKE AREA Board members also discussed a proposed sewer district for the Lime Lake area.

The system would make use of the Village of Franklinville wastewater treatment facility. The matter is currently under consideration. Plans involve creating a sewer district and tying residences and businesses around Lime Lake to that sewer district. Approvals are being sought from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Currently, everything around Lime Lake is on a septic system. COUNTY SECRETARY RETIRES At the end of the meeting, the County Planning Board thanked Margaret Pusczc for her many years of secretarial service. Although officially retired as a full-time employee, she will continue to work part-time, two days a week. Isaacson said,” She will train another person to fill in her shoes. There’s a lot of institutional knowledge to pass on.” Margaret Pusczc has worked forty years for the county, and 29 years with the planning board.

added that he would be willing to plant trees in the neighbors yards if they requested. A board member pointed out that there are already trees in the area and that privacy should not be a problem. Another pointed out that they had notified the residents in the area of the public hearing, and that none of them were in attendance. There was mention that the plans for the development call for the units to be arranged somewhat cockeyed in relation to the planned road. The architect mentioned that this is the current style and said people no longer like the “all lined up look.” After further examination of the plans it was decided that only units one and two would benefit from being moved closer to the road. A motion was made to approve the plan for the development with the provision that units one and two be moved four feet closer to

the road. The motion passed. In other business that evening a gentleman appeared before the board asking for a variance to build a house at #10 Van Buren. It seems the house he has planned for the lot would cover and easement set aside for improvements (gas, sewer and water lines) to cross the property and go up the hill behind Van Buren, should anybody want to build on the hillside. In a bit of serendipity for the gentleman, John Northrup spoke up and said he is the owner of the hill and that no one is ever going to develop that land. After a bit more discussion the ZBA suggested that the gentleman take the matter to the Village Board and ask them to abandon the easement. Mr. Northrup said he would be willing to make a statement to the Board that he has no plans for the hill. The gentleman said he would do so.

EAETES R F TIM

All is not well in the land of the Pharaohs and, because of that, we’ve once again found ourselves forced to rationalize our support of strong-arm dictatorships around the world. How have we, America, the land of the free the home of the brave, managed to find ourselves, time and time again, tangled up with snakes? What does Egypt mean to us? Why is Mubarek an ally of ours and how does Glenn Beck manage to find Communists and Archduke Franz Ferdinand under every turned over rock? I realize that it’s sometimes hard to find the humor in certain mega-situations but, God willing, I can try. So, what separates the heroes from the villains in the eyes of the United States? I’m not talking short term here. I’m talking big picture stuff folks. Egypt, despite the fact that it’s a bully-state, has been one of our longest serving allies in an otherwise chaotic region of despots and criminals. Seeing a million people rampaging

through the streets of Cairo demanding the heads of government leaders must be a bit discouraging to the folks in the State Department who didn’t see this coming. Mubarek doesn’t stand a chance and that has us (and the rest of the world) shaking in our combatready boots. Seriously though, isn’t the disposal of a dictator by popular uprising better than sending in the troops? Our hands are clean in this for once. Our concern, for good reason, has to do with the so-called domino effect. Lets not forget that this all started in Tunisia, a country that I and most Americans, know absolutely nothing about. Who replaces the strongmen that we’ve supported for all these years and how do these new leaders feel about us? The demonstrators in Egypt right now aren’t exactly happy with us right now because of our support for the thirty-year reign of good ole Hosni. Sure we’re concerned but at least with Egypt, we shouldn’t be. Egypt is the most populated Muslim country in the world. It’s also the most diverse. Our concerns (and Becks) that some sort of Taliban-type regime will replace Mubarek are unfounded. Education, diversity and population always trump fundamentalism. So what worries Glenn? The boogeyman. That’s what. I really have to stop watching Glenn Beck. Last night, however, I noticed that Beck had broken out a second chalkboard. This must be serious! In the course of one very painful hour Beck

RED BULL BUTTERCUP: MARCH 5TH, 10AM-4PM ~ HOLIDAY VALLEY RESORT


February 3-9, 2011 ~ The Villager ~ Page 11

Adaptive CONT. FROM FRONT PAGE Sit Skiers and three or four track skiers. The event will also feature a demonstration of the equipment used in adaptive skiing, such as the Snow Slider, Mono Ski, and Dual Ski. The fee to enter the race is $40 this year. “This is a family oriented learning experience for students with special needs,” said Richardson. Adaptive ski programs are one of the fastest growing activities in ski areas, and the expansion of the Phoenix Adaptive Program over the years has had a great impact on the growth of the sport in the North East. Richardson said that the Phoenix program is one of only three in the region, including the Lounsbury Adaptive Ski Program at Holiday Valley Resort, and one at Kissing Bridge Ski Resort. Richardson said the program is equipped to handle special needs individuals, and all people with physical and mental disabilities are welcome to join the program. He added that the Phoenix program serves members and guests of members on Saturdays and Sundays, and that the Phoenix program’s offshoot, the Dick Freedman Outreach Program offers the adaptive skiing lessons for the public on Sunday afternoons. At Holiday Valley Resort, the very popular Penguin Paddle fundraiser features hundreds of people sliding down the slopes on black garbage bags while lying on their bellies like a penguin. The event is held to raise money to benefit the Lounsbury Adaptive Ski Program for the physically and mentally challenged, a chapter of Disabled Sports USA. Participants donate a dollar for the opportunity to slide down

B4BC CONT. FROM FRONT PAGE lack of awareness concerning breast cancer among young women. She along with the other co-founders wanted to create awareness through the things that they all loved, snowboarding and music. Through this compilation of passions, the founders created an organization to raise money for research and educate young women. Sadly Monica did not see her inaugural Boarding for Breast Cancer Snowboard and Music Festival, as she passed away three months prior to the event. Thus, the organization has strove to show communities all over the U.S. that good health practices and early detection are vital parts to fighting breast cancer. They also provide support and a welcoming community for all those who are affected by breast cancer to turn to in their time of need. To find out ways to help B4BC their website is www. b4bc.org. This year Holiday Valley is having many different activities in the name of breast cancer. Registration begins at 11am upstairs in the Clubhouse Chalet for all those who wish to participate in the day’s events. Starting at noon there will be clinics held specifically for women to learn the basics of snowboarding, so whether you are a beginner wanting to learn how to snowboard or are more advanced and want to move onto the terrain park, the clinics are for you! From noon to five o’clock both Silent and Chinese auctions will be held for everyone to attend in the Chalet. Gift baskets, clothing, goggles, and other sorts of snowboarding accessories are just a few

Trail CONT. FROM PAGE 5 The new trail loop has been in the works for about three years. Winger said he’s glad to see the project finally coming to fruition, noting that while it’s a long process, “it’s a little shorter than completing Route 219 to Buffalo.” Work for the new trail

the slope while showing off their best and craziest moves. Mary Ellen Racich, program director of the Lounsbury Adaptive Ski Program, said members of Holiday Valley’s ski patrol created the program in 1988 in memory of Bill Lounsbury, their friend and fellow ski patrolman who taught himself to ski on one leg after losing a leg to cancer. After his death, people began sending monetary donations to the ski patrol as memorials, and the group used the money to purchase special equipment and fund the creation of the adaptive ski program. The program accommodates individuals seven days a week and groups on weekdays, teaching persons of various disabilities to become skiers and to attain a degree of fitness previously unknown to them. It also provides a full range of adaptive equipment for the skiers of all abilities, including specially engineered devices for wheelchair users. In 1988, there were 4 instructors and 14 students, and they taught 32 lessons that year. Racich said today there are 50 volunteers in the program, which now offers 225 to 250 lessons a year, and that the program is so popular that it is by reservation only. She said the program is open to anyone between the ages of 5 and 75 years old, and they can cover all types of physical and cognitive disabilities. Racich added that they now offer a scholarship for disabled children from the area if they can show a desire to ski and financial need, and that this year two kids took part in the scholarship program. Racich said that the Penguin Paddle is the program’s main source of the funding used to purchase equipment and train volunteers. Jane Eshbaugh, Holiday Valley marketing manager, said anyone could participate in the Penguin slide if they want to, or they can sit back, watch the races, and try

their luck with the raffle or silent auction. She said money raised from the auction, raffle, food sales and entry fee really helps the program. Racich said all participants in the slide receive a gift, which is usually a small toy. She said the gift goes back to their habit of giving toys away to the kids during the early years of the program. Racich said about 400 people show up at the event every year, and that the group usually sells around 300 garbage bags to those who want to take part in the slide. The sliders are divided into seven different groups based on age, starting with kids 4 to 6 years old, and a mixed doubles run where two people share one oversized bag. Raffle prizes include a 20112012 Combo Pass to Holiday Valley, a $500 dollar travel voucher for airline tickets, and a pair of high performance skis from Dekdebrun Ski Shop. A food tent will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. offering a wide array of snacks, drinks, and sandwiches for a $5 donation. Registration at Creekside Lodge runs from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the base of Yodeler. The silent auction will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the base of Yodeler, the raffle tickets are on sale all day at Yodeler, and the drawing starts at about 2:30 p.m. The Penguin Races begin at 1:30 p.m. for the youngest age group. To learn more about the Phoenix Adaptive Program, contact HoliMont Ski Resort at 699-2320. For more information on the Penguin Paddle, contact Holiday Valley Resort at 6992345 or visit their web site at www.holidayvalley.com. Contact Lounsbury Adaptive Ski Program at 699-3504, or visit their web site at www. lounsburyadaptive.org.

things that will be auctioned off. Even an autographed snowboard from Danny Kass, two-time silver medal Olympian and professional American snowboarder, will be sold to the highest bidder! There will also be many vendors and information booths on breast cancer hosted by B4BC to educate everyone who attends this event. Breast cancer is the second highest diagnosed cancer in women right behind skin cancer in the United States according to breastcancer.org specialists. In the middle of the day an activity called “Breast Trick” where skiers and snowboarders will ride through the terrain park course to end at a specially decorated pink surprise. Finally prizes will be given out at 5pm to winning participants and biggest fundraisers for the day. For more information about the day’s events you can go to Holiday Valley’s website and even download a registration form. Now how exactly did Holiday Valley Resort get involved with B4BC? Pat Morgan arranged to host the first event in 2009 and ever since it has been a success! In 2009, about $5000 was raised and it was doubled in 2010. This year’s goal was set at $15,000 but with the loss of Western New York Breast Health, last year’s gold sponsor, fundraising efforts have been put into overdrive. Holiday Valley Reality and Rental Management and Buffalo MTI are still sponsoring the Board-a-thon event as Bronze level sponsors. This is a great help towards achieving the goal of $15,000. Jane Eshbaugh states that, “The involvement throughout the resort is amazing. From the food and beverage staff right up to customer service, everyone here is doing their part to make this event a success once again,” which is shown through the

numerous ways the resort is raising funds for B4BC. Hearts have been sold by the bars and dining facilities to be placed around the resort which benefit the breast cancer awareness event. Skiers and snowboarders have been given the option to add $1 to their ticket into the park to donate to the cause, and every dollar counts! Want to know how to get involved in fundraising? Up until the day of the event, resort goers can donate a dollar with the “Pink Lift Ticket Option,” which is a perfect way for those who do not think they can attend the event on February 12th can do their part in donating. Pink Ribbon Wish Bracelets will also be available in Customer Service for two dollars, so you can show your support all the time. B4BC and Holiday Valley Resort are in need of donations for this event and sponsorships; not only will the money be going to a great national and local cause but this is the best opportunity to get you or your business’ name out there to the Holiday Valley community. Contacting Holiday Valley by phone (716-669-2345) or visiting their website (www. holidayvalley.com) can lead you to sponsorship information and ways to donate. Funds raised at the Boarding for Breast Cancer Board-a-thon will not only go towards the B4BC cause, but it will also benefit our local Camp Good Days which is a support camp designed for breast cancer survivors to get outdoors and enjoy life while celebrating their struggles and triumphs over this disease. The camp is located in Branchport, NY and the special Women’s Oncology Program will be receiving part of the funds raised this year. For ways to help the camp you can also find information online at www. campgooddays.org.

Hi! My name is Denise, I am 40 years old. Most of my family is in the area. I have 4 nephews and a neice here that I like to do things with. I have a dog, Cassie, who is my best friend. I miss being able to take her for walks. I am not able to walk her after dialysis, I am just to tired. I was a member of the ladies auxiliary at the volunteer fire company for over 10 years but had to give it up because of dialysis and my illness. I have been sick most of my life and would love to just have a more normal life. I have a job at Target but can only work 1 day a week because I have to go to dialysis 3 days a week. I can’t work more at this time because I am usually very tired after dialysis and I have a lot of pain in my legs from the accesses in my legs and can’t stand for long periods of time. If anyone is willing/able to help me out, it would mean the world to me. I just want to be able to work, do things with my family, go on vacations, and just not be in so much pain! Please help if you can. It would change my life for the better. You would be giving me the best gift ever. 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.

To solve a Sudoku puzzle, place a number into each box so that each row across, each column down, and each small 9-box square within the larger diagram (there are 9 of these) will contain every number from 1 through 9. In other words, no number will appear more than once in any row, column, or smaller 9-box square. Working with the numbers already given as a guide, complete each diagram with the missing numbers that will lead to the correct solution. Good luck!
