Village Seeks United Police Force

Board Discusses Future of Village and Town Police Dept.; Commends Music Festival By John Thomas Staff Writer

The Village Board opened its regular meeting and a public hearing last Monday night. The public hearing was to consider two laws referred to as Local Law #3 and Local Law #4. Local Law #3 is a sewer use law concerning the regulation of private sewers and drains, and the draining of private waste into the public sewage system. Local Law #4 requires “the owner and occupants of land to cut, trim, or remove brush, grass, rubbish, and weeds.” The mayor asked for comment from the floor, but as there we no citizens present, no comment was made. The mayor kept the public hearing open for the rest of the meeting. Copies of the laws are available at the Village Clerks office. The DPW reported on various dig requests they had performed during June. Some homes in the Village have old water meters that need to be replaced, but the owners are seldom around to let the crew in to do the change out. A letter will be sent out to about 25 owners requesting they

During the special events report Trustee Wilkens stated that he felt that the music festival this year was one of the best he’s seen. He went on to say that there were no problems and that the slopes at Holiday Valley were very clean after the concerts. It was mentioned that during the July 4th weekend not a single arrest was made.

commented that no warning is given to the inspected restaurants. No violations or problems were reported. There was general discussion about the Village using the Towns ORI number. An ORI number is necessary See VILLAGE page 10

SBU Launches ArtMobile

Local Woman Joins SBU to Deliver Lessons to Twin Tier Libraries ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y., July 8, 2011 — The Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts at St. Bonaventure University will help schoolchildren and others journey to far-away places this summer, and the only passport they’ll need is a welcome from their local library. This is the third consecutive year that the Quick Center has joined a number of libraries across New York and Pennsylvania as a partner in the Collaborative Summer Reading Program, a national consortium of 49 states that helps offer a themed summer reading program through community libraries. Miranda Armagost, the Quick Center’s education assistant, will load supplies into the center’s ArtMobile and hit the road, delivering lessons once a week at 10 participating libraries. The program begins the week of July 18 and continues through the month. Participating public libraries include those in Olean, Allegany, Portville, Salamanca, Randolph, Cuba and Belfast in New York; as well as Coudersport, Port Allegany and Duke Center in Pennsylvania. Interested children are asked to sign up at their local library. “We saw the opportunity to integrate art into the overall theme of the summer reading program,” said Evelyn Sabina, curator of education at the Quick Center. “It seemed a logical fit, and the libraries have been so welcoming and appreciative. We have this incredible resource right here at St. Bonaventure, but not everyone can get to it. We basically bring the Quick Center to them.” This year’s summer reading

theme is “One World, Many Stories,” so the Quick Center’s focus is on culturally diverse art forms. Program participants will be introduced to Japanese woodblock printing, African mask making, and Native American beadwork. All tie in with collections or exhibitions presently housed at the Quick Center, allowing those intrigued by a particular art form to learn more by visiting the museum. Olean Public Library has partnered with the Quick Center the past two summers and welcomes the program back again this year. “The Quick program is a wonderful fit,” said librarian Mary DiRisio, noting Olean is gearing its program for teens through adults. “It’s designed to go along with the ‘One World, Many Stories’ theme, so the art activities will focus on

how Asian, African and Native American art can tell a story. Each week, participants will learn about art from various cultures and, as a result, make their own art piece, which will be a reflection of themselves and that particular culture.” DiRisio said the Quick program is always popular, and openings fill up fast. Armagost, a Salamanca native, graduated from Buffalo State College with a bachelor’s degree in art education in 2008 and taught in North Carolina for two years before returning to the region. She looks forward to taking the Quick Center on the road. “It’s exciting to be collaborating with local libraries on this summer program, and to be able to expand the reach of this extraordinary arts center,” she said.

The House Committee on Ways and Means has concluded hearings on pending free trade agreements with Colombia, Panama and South Korea. During the hearings, Congressman Tom Reed, an outspoken supporter of the trade agreements, pressed administration officials on the delays in bringing the agreements to Congress. “These agreements are critical to creating new local jobs,” Reed said. “I recently hosted a delegation from Korea in the district. There are tremendous opportunities

for 29th district businesses and farmers in particular.”  Reed noted that tariff eliminations in the agreements would create new markets for apple, grape, and dairy farmers. “These free trade agreements mean more markets open to New York products.” Reed cited this morning’s Labor Department report that the unemployment rate has risen to 9.2 percent as evidence of the urgent need for the agreements to move forward. “Our economy and our job market cannot afford anything less than swift action so that

new opportunities and jobs are created for our farmers and manufacturers. These free trade agreements are job creators for Upstate New York” According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, 95 percent of the world’s consumers live outside the United States and approximately 42 percent of all U.S. jobs are connected to international trade, including 3 million manufacturing jobs and 3.9 million agricultural jobs. Congress continues to await the necessary formal submission of the free trade agreements from the White House.

Cleanup for West Valley

Congressmen Reed and Higgins Offer Amendment to Restore Funding

U.S. Representatives Tom Reed (NY-29) and Brian Higgins (NY-27) have together introduced an amendment to increase funding designated for cleanup efforts at the West Valley site, a move aimed at protecting the greater Western New York community and saving money over the longterm. The Reed-Higgins Amendment would restore $41 million to the non-defense environmental cleanup fund in H.R. 2354, the FY 2012 Energy and Water Appropriations Bill.  “Our amendment makes good sense from both a governmental and a financial stand point,” Reed commented. “In the midst of a debt-driven crisis, we must carefully prioritize every dollar we spend. Public safety facilities, especially those containing radioactive waste, must be at the top of the priority list. “The Department of Energy has an obligation to clean up this nuclear waste and to protect

local communities and Congress has an obligation to fund the program at levels sufficient to clean these sites thoroughly and expeditiously,” said Higgins, a member of the Great Lakes Task Force. “The consequences would be environmentally and economically dire if this radioactive waste makes its way into the Great Lakes, the largest source of fresh water in the world.” The Reed-Higgins Amendment would take money for cleanup from two administrative accounts. “Instead of allowing this $41 million  to disappear into the D.C. bureaucracy, our amendment shifts these tax dollars directly to local sites where it is needed most,” Reed observed. “At the same time it responsibly addresses the environmental legacy of previous generations before it becomes a bigger problem for future generations,” added Higgins. Without the amendment, the

appropriation will extend the first phase of the cleanup from 10 to 14 years. With maintenance costs at $30 million per year, an additional 4 years means $120 million in additional necessary funding. That money would be saved by the passage of the Reed-Higgins Amendment.   The West Valley site was established in the 1960s in response to a federal call for efforts to commercialize the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel from power reactors.  While the site was in operation, approximately 640 metric tons of spent nuclear fuel was reprocessed. Reprocessing operations were halted between 1972 and 1976 to support facility modifications, but operations never resumed. The U.S. Department of Energy became responsible for the site through the West Valley Demonstration Project Act of 1980, legislation requiring the Department to solidify the highlevel waste and dispose of it.

Architectural Digest A Little Touch of Walden

Story and photos by John Thomas Staff Writer In 1845 Henry David Thoreau moved to a small cabin on Walden Pond to get away from civilization. Walden, the book he wrote during his time there became the springboard for the environmental movement. Today, the romantic idea of getting away to a gentle simple life in a small cabin by a pond is a notion that is still very much with us today. Well, here’s your chance. Located on Brown Road in Great Valley the home sits in a park like setting surrounded by forest. The driveway passes over gently rolling land, and its grounds would be at home in the finest urban parks. Usually when I go to a house for this column I can’t wait to go see the inside of the house. But even on this hot sultry day I spend about 20 minutes strolling around the nearly 30 acres of property. You can’t miss the pond. It’s about 100 feet across at its widest, and I guess about eight feet deep. I step out on the dock and spot at least two good-sized fish.

At the far end, a pipe delivers fresh spring water and creates a relaxing waterfall sound. Across from the pond a small bridge leads over a stream and into the forest beyond. Overhead the trees create a canopy of green over a clearing in the underbrush. The breeze provides a welcome bit of cooling; a perfect spot for a hammock. Up behind the detached two car garage there is a large cleared area for an ambitious garden. As I turn to head towards the house I spot a large bramble of blueberry and raspberry bushes. Score! I help myself to a couple of fresh blueberries. Walking back to the house I notice the lawn is cut to a fine manicure, re-enforcing the park setting. Once inside the house the surprises continue. Dominating the living room is a huge stone wood burning fireplace and chimney. But instead of it being placed up against a wall, it’s almost in the center of the room, so that you can walk behind it. The walls and ceiling are knotty pine wood with rough hewn beams, setting up the perfect cabin atmosphere.

It’s about 100 feet across at its widest, and I guess about eight feet deep.

Comfortable chairs dot the room, and sequestered over in the corner, the one modern intrusion; a wide screen TV. A sliding glass door leads out to a glassed in deck with carpeting and chairs. It’s a brilliant touch, allowing the deck to be used year round. As I step out to it, I notice how perfectly

the trees frame the pond and how the windows frame the view. It was like looking at a giant still life, reminiscent of a Japanese garden. Sitting here in winter with a gentle snowfall must be amazing. Back inside I head towards the kitchen. First there is a pleasant dining area under an

antique chandler. Just past it is the cooking counter with a convection stove. The white Corian counter tops accent the knotty pine cabinets. The window over the double stainless steel sink looks out to the forest. A staircase leads up to a loft that would be the perfect spot for a reading nook

or a home office (if you must). The master bedroom is on the main floor. The wood paneling adds warmth to the room. Here also is a nicely appointed bath with a tub shower combo, and a closet for the laundry. On the bottom floor I’m surprised to find a small kitchenette; a stove and two sinks. Around the corner is a large family room with a soap stone wood stove. It could easily house a pool table, or entertainment center. A pair of sliding glass windows lead out to a stone patio, a few steps from the pond. It would be a great spot for entertaining. The bedroom and full bath also make this a great spot for guests. There is lots of storage on this level as well as a large wine cellar. As I turn to leave I find myself thinking about old Henry David. When you live here you may not be as inspired as he was, but you’re sure to find it a transcendent experience. Once inside the house the surprises continue. Dominating the living room is a huge stone wood burning fireplace and chimney.

Patron Saint’s Feast Day Local Food Tour Scheduled SBU to Honor Feast of St. Bonaventure Friday, July 15th

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y., July 12, 2011 — St. Bonaventure University will host a series of events highlighting the Feast of St. Bonaventure beginning Friday, July 15. The celebration will begin at 5 p.m. Friday with the celebration of the Eucharistic Liturgy in the University Chapel, Doyle Hall. The celebrant will be Fr. Francis DiSpigno, O.F.M., and the newly appointed executive director of Faith Formation, Worship and Ministry and guardian of St. Bonaventure Friary. The homilist will be Fr. Dominic Monti, O.F.M., vicar provincial of the Holy Name Province, former acting president of the University, and a Franciscan scholar. A dessert reception will follow at Café La Verna beginning at 7:15 p.m. On Saturday, July 16, an evening prayer service will begin at 5 p.m. in the University Chapel followed by the Franciscan Institute Medal Ceremony and Academic Convocation in the Robert R. Jones Board of Trustees Room in Doyle Hall from 5:45 to 7 p.m. This year’s medal recipient is Fr. Joseph P. Chinnici, O.F.M., an American church historian and Franciscan scholar who is the recently appointed president of the Franciscan School of Theology in Berkeley, Calif. During the convocation, the Laudatio will be given by St. Bonaventure University President Sr. Margaret Carney, O.S.F., S.T.D., with the Appreciation given by Robert J. Karris, O.F.M., Th.D., a member of the research faculty in the Franciscan Institute at St. Bonaventure. After the ceremony, a dinner and program will follow in Doyle Dining Room.

The Franciscan Institute Medal is awarded annually to an individual who has made significant contributions to Franciscan scholarship and education. A professor of church history at the Franciscan School of Theology, Fr. Chinnici previously served as the academic dean of the school and for nine years was the minister provincial of the Province of St. Barbara, the administrative region of the Franciscan friars in the West. He was in this post when the clergy sex abuse scandal touched his order — several years before it became a national issue. He has published a book, “When Values Collide,” which blends his own personal experience of trying to do the right thing in a fraught atmosphere, the best socialscientific and psychological research, and serious reflection by a follower of St. Francis on the way the church’s leaders can re-establish confidence and trust. Fr. Chinnici graduated with a doctoral degree from the University of Oxford in 1976. He is a widely known author and preacher and a published expert on both the history of American Catholicism and the development of Franciscan theology and spirituality. 
His ground-breaking work “Living Stones: The History and Structure of Catholic Spiritual Life in the United States” (second edition 1996) has been followed by numerous articles in “U.S. Catholic Historian,” the co-edited “Prayer and Practice In the American Catholic Community,” and significant studies on the history of prayer and on the reception of Vatican II in the United States. Fr. Chinnici has served for the

Dixie Chicks at The Square Martie Maguire and Emily Robinson Scheduled for July 14th

Buffalo, New York – Thursday at the Square will feature the Court Yard Hounds, this Thursday, July 14th at the Erie Canal Harbor Central Wharf! The Court Yard Hounds were formed by sisters and Dixie Chicks members, Martie Maguire and Emily Robison in 2009. The Dixie Chicks lead vocalist Natalie Maines was not ready to break from the group’s 3 year hiatus, so Maguire and Robison formed Court Yard Hounds as a side project. Maguire says, “Sony’s looking at this like an artist launch and we’re looking at it like a new chapter in music… We definitely are going to tour this and make another record. I know this isn’t just a one-time, get-it-off-our-chests, g getthese-songs-recorded-and-goback-to-our-lives thing.” Their first performance as Court Yard Hounds was at the American Music Association’s South by Southwest Mardi Gras show in Austin, Texas on March 18, 2010. Court Yard Hounds debut album has sold over 250,000 copies in the United States. The Dixie Chicks lead vocalist is still on an indefinite break and Maguire and Robison plan to release another Court

Yard Hounds album in 2011. According to Rolling Stone, “Natalie Maines’ feistiness is missed, but Robison, who wrote most of the songs, has a way with a hook - and those harmonies make even the weepiest weepers go down smooth.” Opening up the evening of performance at the Erie Canal Harbor Central Wharf will be Alison Pipitone Band and Rob Falgiano Band. Thursday at the Square is a ten-week, free-to-the-public celebration of music, summer fun and Downtown Buffalo, produced by Buffalo Place Inc. The event draws record crowds into Downtown Buffalo and creates spin-off business for bars, restaurants and dance clubs. For every $1.00 invested into the concert series, $6.38 is

returned into the local economy. For the thirteenth consecutive year, M&T Bank is the Presenting Sponsor of the Summer Concert Series. Once again, Labatt Blue Light is the Featured Act Sponsor and official beer of the 2011 Summer Concert Series. Supporting Act Sponsors include Try-It Distributing, Coca-Cola and The Buffalo News – Gusto. Wardynski’s, BW’s Barbecue, Just Pizza and Hob Nob and Yellow Tail Wines are the Warm-Up Act Sponsors.

Up Close and Personal

The Winery of Ellicottville Prepares for Wine & Food Pairing Night By Dean Whitcomb The Villager Staff   The Winery of Ellicottville will host its first ever wine and food pairing event on July 21st, 2011 at 6 PM and include a tour of the winery and several wine specials and discounts.  The evening is the first of its kind at the winery and will feature five house wines paired with five tastefully prepared dishes by Chef John Haley.  The pairing event will be held upstairs inside the Winery of Ellicottville on Monroe St.    “We have a room upstairs that will hold about 25 people,” says Dominic Spicola, co-owner of the winery, “We’re a very excited and we already have some reservations so we’re really hoping this event takes off. We’re a little limited on space but we would like to start offering one or two of these nights per month so that we can accommodate everyone.”    The evening will feature house wines such as the Chardonnay, EVL Red, Noiret and Riesling.  Spicola raves of the successful release of popular EVL Red.    “This is the best-selling wine we’ve had since its release.  We’ve been going to some nearby wine festivals and showcasing this wine…it’s been the best seller by far.  People seem to really enjoy it.  Aside from the attractive label, it’s really a very unique wine. It starts off very mellow and sweet on the palate and finishes dry.”

  Chef John Haley will prepare five courses to pair with each of the five wines.  Such dishes will include tastes of salmon, veal and even a dish of baconwrapped goat cheese.  The food will all be served in sample sizes so as not to over-feed attendees.    “The dishes are very tasty and are a great matchup with our wines,” Spicola continued, “I’m not even a big fan of veal, but the way the chef prepared it was just great, especially with the wine we’ve paired it with.  We’re really looking forward to holding this dinner.”    The Winery of Ellicottville will also be holding a second wine pairing dinner on August 18th.  This event however, will be held in a slightly different format.  The wine tastings for this evening of fun will come straight out of the barrel.     “After you bottle wine, if it is served to quickly it may have bottle shock,” Spicola reveals, “With a barrel tasting you can see that the wine hasn’t yet been disturbed.  It has a totally different feel to it on the palate when it’s straight from the barrel.  It’s becoming

increasingly popular to wineries to hold tastings like these.”   Wines offered during the second event will include the Pinot Noir, the Merlot and Syrah among others.     In addition to the introduction of their new Wine Pairing Dinners, the owners of the Winery of Ellicottville are proud to announce that two of their wines were recipients of medals in the Grand Harvest Awards in California.  The “Vidal Blanc” was awarded a Gold medal and “The Sweetest Thing,” was awarded silver.  This makes two medals apiece for the two wines as they were also both recognized in the Florida International Wine Competition.  Bronze medals were also awarded to two other wines recently at the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition.    Reservations are currently being taken and will continue until capacity is reached. Tickets are priced at $45 per person.  Those interested in attending may call the Winery of Ellicottville at 716-699-1055 to make reservations.  Happy tasting!

Efforts to Help NY Farmers Congressmen Reed and Gibson Send Letter on Behalf of Farmers

Congressman Tom Reed (NY29) and Congressman Chris Gibson (NY-20) led the New York Congressional Delegation in sending a letter to the U.S. Labor Department asking them to expedite the H2A visa application process for New York farm workers. Over the past several years, delays have plagued the H2A system, resulting in labor shortages, costly delays, and uncertainty for New York farmers.  In particular, this year, an ongoing dispute between the New York State Department of Labor and the U.S. Department of Labor temporarily impacted individual farmers in the state. “Immigration and farm jobs are critical issues in Upstate,” Reed said. “In meetings with farmers in the district and the Farm Bureau, I hear frustration about the challenges of H2A process. We need to ensure that our farms have an adequate and legal work

force. Family farms are the backbone of our economy – the farms in my district generate a large portion of the commodities produced in the northeastern U.S. including apples, grapes, dairy and other foodstuffs. Unnecessary delays negatively impact our ability to harvest crops in a timely manner. As the upstate economy continues to struggle, our farmers literally cannot afford to wait any longer. This is an issue we will continue working on and I appreciate the bipartisan effort of my colleagues on behalf of our farmers.” “A focus of mine has been maintaining an active dialogue with farmers throughout Upstate New York, which allows me to gain a firsthand understanding of the issues that threaten the profitability and viability of our family farms.  Through my Agriculture Advisory Council, my day spent working on a farm in Valatie, and individual

meetings with New York farmers, I am keenly aware that trouble accessing qualified, reliable labor is a principal problem in our shrinking rural communities. Thus, it is imperative that the H2A program work in a swift and secure manner, to avoid delays, and provide growers with the workers they need to harvest their crops,” said Gibson.“Our family farmers are central to the fabric of our upstate communities, and I remain committed to working on their behalf here in Washington.” Signing the letter to U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, in addition to Congressmen Gibson and Reed, were Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand and Representatives Ann Marie Buerkle (NY-25), Richard Hanna (NY-24), Brian Higgins (NY-27), Kathleen Hochul (NY26), Maurice Hinchey (NY-22), Bill Owens (NY-23), Louise Slaughter (NY-28), and Paul Tonko (NY-21).

The A-B-C’s of a Body’s Vibrant Health...Part 1

Through the years I have learned how important it is to start activating our bodies as a first step to achieve self-healing and vibrant health. To be able to do this process three different body systems are involved. Steven Horne and Carl Robinson, both advocates of natural healing and Master Herbalists describe it as follows: “All cells need a supply of oxygen to fan the spark of life (energy), a supply of nutrients (fuel to produce energy and heat) and a constant removal of waste materials (which utilizes water). These three needs are represented in the body by the three major systems that permeate almost every tissue in the body. They are the circulatory system, the lymphatic system and the nervous system. The circulatory system supplies oxygen and nutrients to every cell in the body, thus it is the source of fuel for the life process. The lymphatic system removes much of the waste from around the cells, so it represents the need of all cells for constant removal of wastes. Finally, the nervous system provides electrical stimulus to all body tissues to promote healing and

we develop positive attitudes and emotions through different paths like positive affirmations in present tense, deep breathing, visualization, aromatherapy, homeopathics and enzymes among other techniques, we provide an electrical stimulus through the nervous system that activates the healing energy of the tissues. Enzymes are the “spark plugs” of the life process. Every biological function of the body is controlled or aided by the action of enzymes. Raw foods contain these enzymes, as do many of the cultured-foods, raw yogurt, sauerkraut, etc. However, enzymes are destroyed by heat, so a diet consisting primarily of cooked and processed foods is lacking in natural enzymes. We can find the major plant enzymes to supplement our daily nutrition in the enzymatic combination Proactazyme. Proactazyme contains: Protease, an enzyme used to digest proteins.; Lipase, an enzyme that breaks down fats; Amylase and Glucoamylase, enzymes that supplement the secretions of the saliva and aid the digestion of starches in the food we eat; Cellulose and Pectinase, which help process plant fibers like cellulose. Food Enzymes, according to the Herballure Hart book, Food Enzymes are a broad-spectrum digestive enzyme supplement formulated to aid digestion of carbohydrates, fats and proteins and ease digestive problems. Food Enzymes can also improve the absorption of vitamins and minerals, help maintain normal pH levels, detoxify the colon, and stimulate the growth of healthy intestinal bacteria.

Truth or Consequences created FOX, oversaw the rise of the British media giant News of the World and owns both the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post. He wants revenge for something and he’s going to get it no matter whom he tramples on the way to his version of the truth.  Unfortunately for Murdoch a reckoning is coming and, for once, we’re going to get a glimpse inside his closet.        News of the World, in case you missed it, no longer exists.  England’s best selling tabloid is currently embroiled in a scandal that has rocked Murdoch’s empire to its very core.  It began with the disappearance of a teenage girl who’s phone was hacked by investigators hired by the paper and has snow balled from there.  It has since been revealed that phones belonging to a host of British celebrities and politicians have also been hacked along with the phones of relatives of British troops killed in Afghanistan and American 9/11 victims.  The stoic British Empire, it seems, can only be pushed so far.      But who’s really to blame?  Murdoch and his minions are sleaze balls.  This is a given.  But who eats the shoveled slop?  We do…Casey Anthony, anyone?  America has been held captive by this circus for three years now.  We’ve hung on every word of the trial and listened to the lynch mob mentality driving the news cycle.  Murdoch and those like him are only feeding the masses.  News of the World was a marketing giant in a world where newspapers were supposed to be dying.  He knows

repair. It is the system that is supplying the spark of life to regulate and control all of the life processes”. Activation is one of the four steps to natural healing introduced by Ed Millet, but has been greatly expanded by Steve Horne and Carl Robinson. A stands for Activate. That means we have to start the spark of life to stimulate the process of energy within the body. B stands for Build. That means we have to supply the body with the nutrients it needs. Finally, C stands for Cleanse. This means we have to get the waste material out of the system. The great activating systems in our body are the nervous system and the glandular system, as they regulate the life process and control the body’s energies. Our nerves and glands respond to our thoughts and our moods, thus the principle of activation must involve our thoughts and our emotions as well. Positive thoughts and joyful feelings enhance the healing power of our body, while negative thoughts and dark feelings depress our body’s ability to heal. Good nutrition and emotional healing make the activating process more successful. Living foods contain strong life energy; they provide more than chemical substances to the body. Horne explains that living foods also contain a source of life energy or light. They “enlighten” and “enliven” our minds and bodies. The more we refine and process a food, the more de-vitalized or de-natured it becomes. Refining food causes it to lose its vital energy or vitality. This loss of light or vital energy causes the nature of the food to break down. The food becomes “dead” and cannot fully participate in the life process. According to Horne, when

of the largest radio controlled aircraft rallies in New York, and the first to feature giant scale model aircraft. Last year’s rally featured 67 guest pilots who brought 131 model aircraft. Jim Goodemote, STARS member and rally organizer, said he expects between 50 and 100 pilots, and STARS Vice President Richard Say, said there has been as many as 130 pilots in the past. Say said that in the past the air show has attracted modelers from all over the U.S., and even from Canada and Europe. Both men said that the weather would play a large role in the turnout. Say said one of the best reasons to come to the air show is the opportunity to see scale models of a variety of aircraft. He said that some models are scale replicas of common craft, such as a Cessna, it also features a number of historically dated aircraft that are almost impossible to see full-scale anymore, such as replicas of the craft created by aviation pioneers and World War 1 and 2 craft. Goodemote added that one of the members would be flying a model helicopter on Saturday morning, and that he expects to see a model B-29 and B-17 at the show. Goodemote said there would also be some pilots flying electric models starting Thursday, July 14, but they would not be part of the official rally and would not have set flight times. The aircraft flown in the rally usually have between a 5 to 10 foot wingspan, which are classified as giant, or quarter scale, models, and can be electric, gas or even fully

Center in downtown Olean. Meme Yanetsko of the Greater Olean Chamber of commerce explains that, “Each year we have corporate sponsors who help us with all of our events. This year we have fifty=one of them. We asked all of the “Taste” participants to give us some of their samples, and we gave the corporate sponsors a chance to preview some of these before the (actual) Taste.” The main event takes place Sunday, July 24th, also on the JCC Olean campus. Dates have shifted over the years, but this marks the fourth straight year it will be held in July. Organizers appear to have found a home there on the busy summer calendar. Yanetsko is hoping our sunny weather pattern will prevail. “Obviously last year was bad because it did rain. It didn’t wash out the whole event but it’s rain or shine. We tell everybody to adapt to the situation.” What will visitors find at the Taste of Olean? Everything from familiar favorites to new delights are on the menu. Yanetsko notes that out of the


Cont. From Cover whenever an authority issues a ticket or makes an arrest that is reported to the state. The Village has been using the Towns ORI number, and is requesting to continue to do so. To this point the Town has been noncommittal towards the request. The mayor expressed the opinion that the Town would like to see the Village do away with the constable position. This would leave the Towns police department the sole police authority in the Village and Town. The mayor said he did not want to see that happen and would make inquiries with the county about forming a Village police department. There was discussion about needing an information meeting

functional turbo jet engines, with the rarer aircraft being highlighted during the rally. Say added that, over the two days of the event; up to 2,000 visitors have attended in the past, though in bad weather, and during weekends with a number of other events occurring, that number can be much lower. He added, the air show is not a competition, and it offers hobbyists an opportunity to view each other’s projects and designs and to fly together and socialize. He said the air show began as a way to build friendships and connections among scale modelers from various clubs. In order for a pilot to take part in the air show, he or she must be a member of the Academy of Model Aeronautics, and they are required to meet AMA safety standards and to have flown their aircraft before registration. Say said model aviation is older than full-scale manned flight, and prior to radio controlled aircraft there were often national events held on military bases where hobbyists would fly models using either line to control the craft, or letting the models fly free of control. STARS, which was founded in New York State in 1938 as the Olean Model Airplane Club, is one of the oldest model aviation clubs in the U.S., and the club helped develop quarter scale models in the 1970’s. The Olean airport will be closed to full-scale aircraft activity during the show, so the model aircraft pilots have full access to the skies over the 2,000-foot grass runway. Refreshments will be available both days of the air show. Members of STARS will provide wine and cheese to the participating pilots and their families on the evening of July 16. Goodemote said the Cattaraugus County/Olean Airport could

accommodate campers, though there are no power or water hookups at the site. The STARS Flying Club is dedicated to promoting the hobby of building and flying radio controlled model aircraft, and is composed of members living within 50 miles of Cuba. Say said STARS goal is to promote model aviation and the enjoyment of it in a safe and sane manner. They have a flying field located near the intersection of Oil Spring Road and Route 446. Visitors are welcome at the flying field and at club meetings. The club holds its meetings at 7:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month at the flying field in summer and in room 124 of the College Center at Jamestown Community College in Olean in winter. The AMA is the world’s largest model aviation association, representing a membership of more than 150,000 in 2,500 clubs across the country, and is the official national body for model aviation in the U.S. The AMA is a self-supporting, non-profit organization that promotes model aviation, along with education, development, advancement and safeguarding of model aviation activities. For more information on STARS, or to register as a pilot for the show, visit their website at For more information on the AMA, visit their website at STARS would like to thank the Cattaraugus County / Olean Airport Support Group, the City of Olean, the Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Country Fair, Dollar General, Dollar Tree, Graphics +, Miller’s Farm Market, Ried’s Food Barn, Save-A-Lot, Service Store Park & Shop, and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. for their support of the Rally.

fifteen or so food vendors taking part, “The Old Library and Beef and Barrel have been here almost every year (since the beginning.) Restaurants know that yes, you want to attract new customers, but you still must have those mainstays. Who doesn’t want to have a beef on weck? But we also encourage restaurants to showcase a new (food) item.“ She cited an example of Options Café bringing their key lime ice cream pie chocolate pop, which must be kept frozen. The Taste preview gave Options a chance to see how best to serve the item during the Taste of Olean, where the expected heat will provide a challenge. Canticle Farms has become a yearly participant. Known for their organically grown produce and run by the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany, they hope to promote the fact that locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables are available. “You can buy a portion of the farm, and it’s worked out well for them.” Jumbo’s East Side is new this year to the Taste. Their Texas Hots can disappear fast, which they did during the Taste preview. Yanetsko says,” I’m glad they’re on board, letting people know where they are (and what they offer.)”

Joining Taste of Olean at JCC will be Art in the Park, a juried fine arts show that has been around for many years. Previously held separately, it has been part of the annual Taste since the two events teamed up at JCC. “If you’re going to have Art in the Park you’ve got to have food, so why not put the two together?” Something new this year will feature new cars on the back parking lot from Paul Brown Dodge Kia and Rick Bokman. And don’t forget the musical entertainment being lined up by the Theater Workshop of Olean. Family fun will be provided by the Olean Family YMCA, with face painting for the kids and more. CUTCO Cutlery will host demonstrations under the CUTCO tent. 2011 marks the fifth year of the Taste of Olean Hospitality awards. This year’s inductees are Neal and Denis Goodemote, Paul and Mary Psathas, Anthony Zampogna, and James Pappas. They will be recognized at 1:45 p.m. in the CUTCO Theater right on campus. Additional information about the Taste of Olean can be obtained from the Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce at 716-372-4433, or at taste@

with residents as to the need for the East Tank Project. Plans were made to hold a meeting August 10th at 6pm, no location was discussed. During the special events report Trustee Wilkens stated that he felt that the music festival this year was one of the best he’s seen. He went on to say that there were no problems and that the slopes at Holiday Valley were very clean after the concerts. It was mentioned that during the July 4th weekend not a single arrest was made. There will be a change for the upcoming Jazz Weekend. The main outdoor performance venue will be moved from Monroe up to Jefferson Street in front of the post office. The main reason is that Jefferson is a wider street and even with the band tent set up, emergency vehicles can still get through. HoliMont is still intent on raising the clock

in front of the 1887 building. Harold Morton is looking at the cheapest possible way to do it, but it will still cost about $1,300. HoliMont will pay the entire cost of the project. There was some concern that raising the clock could mean the dial would be obscured by tree limbs. The mayor reported there is still a surplus in the general fund, but it is slowly going down. He expressed hope that the economy would begin to improve soon and that state tax revenues would return to previous levels. At this point the mayor closed the public hearing and proceeded with the votes on the two laws. A motion was made to accepted Local Law #3 which passed on a role call vote. A motion was made to accept Local Law #4 which passed on role call vote. With that the meeting was adjourned.

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!
