By Megan O’Donnell St. Bonaventure University

Once again people can expect a western New York tradition to continue on! On February 11, The Ashford Hollow Foundation sponsors its annual snowshoe party. For those of you unaware of what snowshoeing is exactly, me included, a little background might be helpful. Snowshoes are large shoes made of lightweight material that distribute one’s weight over a larger surface, allowing a person not to sink into the snow. Usually if people simple walk through snow with normal boots on, they sink into the snow making it difficult to walk. However, because of the large distribution of weight that snowshoes provide, snowshoes allow people to stay on top of the snow and “floating” along it. The sponsored Moonlight Snowshoe Tour will not only give people an opportunity to snowshoe, but it will allow people the chance to have a tour of Griffis Sculpture Park at night. The tour will go from 5 p.m.-8 p.m. on the 11th. The tour is $50 per person and includes snowshoe rental, chili, live music and, of course, a jolly good time. Balloons Restaurant & Night Club in Ellicottville, N.Y., will be providing All the proceeds from the party benefit the Arts and Education Program of Buffalo. People who wish to join in

Southern Tier West Planning and Development Board Meets in January By Nicholas Pircio WPIG, 95.7 FM Members of the Southern Tier West Regional Planning and Development Board covered a wide range of subjects during a meeting held on January 26th. Executive Director Richard Zink indicated that federal funding for the agency has been received for 2012, and did not indicate any cutbacks.

is to expand (the program) to towns, villages, and other school districts.” Board members agreed to proceed. A second outreach to towns and villages is being conducted under a contract with the New York State Department of Transportation. The contract allows Southern Tier West to take the road scoring initiative began with the counties to the municipalities. The initiative utilizes State road scoring methodology and technology to score the condition of a given road or segment of road according to the road’s physical appearance. Towns and villages can use this information obtained by GPS to make repair decisions such as chipping and stoning by using a standardized road scoring process. Zink also provided an update about the ongoing effort to promote purchase of locally grown foods in

Now, you can find an “All Time High” by taking in her performance at the Seneca-Allegany Events Center on Saturday February 11th, at 7 p.m. When interviewed recently, Rita Coolidge talked about what the audience might expect.

Top row: Ryan Latham,  Mary Ann Marx, middle row: Bill Marx, Mike Russo Bottom: Nicole Marx, Kristen Marx Russo.

By John Thomas Staff Writer - This weekend Holiday Valley is showing a documentary, “The Movement” about five individuals who have learned to ski and enjoy life despite disability. Although none of the Marxes suffer from disability; Nicole is featured in the film. Like the rest of the clan she is an avid skier and sportswoman, who has chosen to follow her passion for outdoor sports. The rest of her family are equally crazy about skiing; starting with father Bill, mother Mary Ann, sister Kristen and her husband, Mike Russo.

Next weekend marks two big ski and snowboard events at Ellicottville’s major ski resorts. On Saturday, Feb. 11 Holiday Valley Ski resort will host, for the fourth time, the Boarding For Breast Cancer (B4BC) event and HoliMont will host the seventh annual Phoenix International Adaptive Race. In conjunction with the Boardroom, Holiday Valley is hosting B4BC.

“My Listings Turn To SOLD!”

22 Years Of Local Real Estate Knowledge


And Then the Gopher Said...

Thousands of people across North America are rodent dependent when it comes to learning whether the winter weather will be with us long or short term. Now, Ellicottville is morally bound to heed the

advice of the one, true, and most revered Punxsutawney Phil, as ‘Inner Circle’ woodchuck wrangler, Mr. Bill Deeley, hangs out here in town during the ski season. Phil said this past Tuesday - “Yep, there’s my shadow – about six or so more weeks of winter” and that’s good enough for me. ‘Dunkirk Dave’ can take a hike, as far as I’m concerned. So, how will you spend the next six weeks? Will you hole-up in your burrow until the warmer spring temperature coaxes you outside? I can tell you our furry buddy does exactly this, and he is – well – quite groggy and a tad chubby when he finally comes out for good. You don’t want that, do you? Assuming Phil’s on the money (and why should we doubt this), 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. For good ol’ Pete’s sake, get out there, brave whatever elements, 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.” Make like a wise fox, not a dopey woodchuck, and have a (snow) ball. Until next week … Jeanine Zimmer

Bartlett Country Club recently named Timothy Brushingham as executive chef. He will lead the country club’s culinary team; including Chris Maine and Jason Iacono. Chef Brushingham is a graduate of the nationally recognized Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, and has presented his culinary skills at events such as Super Bowl XLI where he prepared food for luxury suites. A native of Olean; he spent 10 years in the hospitality industry at Holiday Valley Resort and Conference Center in Ellicottville, NY, before coming to the Bartlett County Club. In making the announcement, Club President Frank H. Higgins praised Chef Bushingham’s imagination and creativity. “Members are already applauding his knowledge

of food preparation. Chef Brushingham is a master at blending ingredients to create a dining experience that is memorable in every way. Equally important, he has experience in all aspects of culinary management and is already developing his kitchen team and expanding their range of specialty dishes.” Chef Brushingham delights in sharing his love of cooking, according to Higgins, and is leading cooking demonstrations at the club for members and their guests. Brushingham has introduced wine-paring events, modified the dinner menu to include more gourmet selections and added some tasty variations to the lunch fare. “Members are responding favorably to the menu changes and many are spending more

evenings at the club. We have introduced a special house membership offer to take advantage of Chef Brushingham’s growing reputation”, said club manager Susan Tyrrell. The private club is offering free trial memberships for two months in order to allow guests an opportunity to meet existing members and experience what it would be like to be a member. Starting in February, guests will be welcome to dine at the club, enjoy refreshments in the Grille Room, and will be invited to a welcome reception, the Valentine’s Day dinner, and the first annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration. “Bartlett Country Club is an amazing place, having recently undergone a clubhouse renovation that adds to the membership experience. We have a magnificent golf course with exceptional views and now Chef Brushingham is managing our culinary team. I am confident that 2012 is going to be an exciting year for the club,” said Higgins. By offering two months free trial house memberships, Higgins said the club hopes to optimize Bartlett’s dining services and attract community members who may not be familiar with the quality of the dining room and the social opportunities offered.

me well in my career. Anna and I are very pleased to be able to give back to the school and help support this important initiative.”    The university is in the midst of a $15 million campaign to construct a new building to house its School of Business.    The new center will feature a financial services lab with electronic ticker tape, dean’s suite, corporate boardroom, state-of-the-art classrooms, break-out areas, spaces for student collaboration, team building and faculty research, innovative technology uses, and a commitment to sustainability.     Construction of the building is scheduled to begin by June, with occupancy set for fall 2013.   “The new School of Business center is a key element in our overall strategic plan,” said Sr. Margaret Carney, O.S.F., S.T.D., president of the university.  “We have seen firsthand the power of new facilities on our campus, and know that investing in this building will position us to better compete for high-quality students and faculty who want to be part of a unique and distinctive scholarly environment.”    The $15 million campaign will provide: $10 million for the construction of the new business center; $4 million in endowments for faculty and programmatic support to ensure a vibrant intellectual community; and $1 million for building endowment.   Nearly $13 million has been raised under the leadership of Robert Daugherty, ’77, University trustee and campaign

be recognized with a giant check presentation between the games on February 3, 2012. “I think we are all looking forward to the event to celebrate Dr. Watson and his place in the Walsh family and history,” stated Jeff Worth ’85. “Walsh brought “Doc” into my life on a personal level, and through that experience I was lucky enough to get to know him as a coach. When his son Steve took the position at St. Bonaventure, it opened the door to spend some additional time with the Watson family and Doc, and I’ll be forever grateful for those memories.” Jeff continues by commenting, “I wanted to do my part to honor his legacy, one that from a pure basketball perspective merits its own recognition. But on a personal level, he was much more than that to me and many of his players. I hope that the Walsh family, alumni, supporters, and friends of Dr. Watson will join us for the event. It will be a special night in the Walsh gym.” From 1981 to 1989, Dr. John G. Watson coached more than 60 young men at Archbishop Walsh - not only on the fundamentals of basketball, good sportsmanship and game management, but also on the fundamentals of becoming young men who served their school and their community. He was passionate in his love for basketball and in his role as teacher, coach and mentor. For eight seasons he inspired young Walsh students to strive for perfection and

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y., January 25, 2012 — Understanding the value of education and the importance of keeping business competitive, Edward H. Bastian, class of 1979, and his wife, Anna, have committed $250,000 to St. Bonaventure University’s School of Business Campaign. The gift will be used for a new business center on St. Bonaventure’s 500-acre campus.   “The professional, caring, and success-driven environment at St. Bonaventure University helped shape me into the man I am today,” said Mr. Bastian, president of Delta Air Lines and a member of the company’s Board of Directors.   “The Franciscan values that I learned at St. Bonaventure have served

chair. “We are grateful for the financial commitments that have been made to date,” said Mr. Daugherty, a retired partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. “Now we need the leverage of many.  We need the help of our alumni, parents and friends to make this campaign a success.”     St. Bonaventure’s School of Business is one of only 5 percent of business schools worldwide to hold accreditation by the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).     “We are in demand,” said Carol Fischer, associate dean of the School of Business, adding that some 30 percent of St. Bonaventure’s student body is composed of business majors.   “Our faculty, students and graduates have made the case for this new building,” Dr. Fischer said.  “They have demonstrated through academic excellence and through success in the business realm that St. Bonaventure’s School of Business is worldclass quality.  Reaching our goal in this campaign will enable us to maintain and build upon our traditional strengths, as well as develop new strengths in our distinctive niches such as service learning.”   Donations to the campaign may be made by visiting www. donate or by calling (800) 6641273.      For more on the planned Business Center and the School of Business Campaign, go to www.

Olean, NY—January 27, 2012. Dr. John G. Watson left a lasting impression on Archbishop Walsh Academy as a coach, mentor and friend. On February 3, 2012, the school will honor his memory with a check presentation and banner unveil that will take place between the JV and Varsity basketball games – approximately 6 p.m. In attendance will be numerous Walsh alumni coached under “Doc” Watson as well as members of the Watson family. When Doc passed away last spring, Walsh alumni began talking about ways to honor the man that meant so much to their lives. Led by Jeff Worth ’85, alumni basketball players coached by Doc were asked to contribute to a memorial fund in his honor. The plan was to support the school in his memory and publicly recognize Doc’s commitment to Walsh students as a coach, mentor and friend with a banner displayed in the gymnasium. Through the efforts of this group, more than 40 people stepped forward to donate a total of $10,000 to the school - an achievement that will

never give up - whether on the basketball court, in the classroom or in life. His success on the basketball court was demonstrated with a winning record every season he coached, including the undefeated season of 1985-86 when the team went 18-0 and received numerous accolades. In addition to his coaching duties at Walsh, Dr. Watson or “Doc” served the community of St. Bonaventure for 36 years, including leadership positions of Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dean of the School of Business and as a faculty member. His love for basketball was well known in the greater Olean community through his role during the last 10 years as color analyst for St. Bonaventure men’s basketball games. Doc Watson made on impact on the lives of so many within our community and we are grateful to his family for allowing us the opportunity to honor him on February 3, 2012. His contribution to our alumni student-athletes is immeasurable and the legacy he left behind is shown not only in his own family, but also in the numerous lives he touched here at Walsh. The Walsh community invites alumni, friends and families to attend the dedication ceremony on February 3, 2012. The night is also the last home game for our basketball teams and we will celebrate senior night. The JV game starts at 5 p.m., followed by the ceremony and senior night recognition followed by the Varsity game at approximately 6:30 p.m.

Book Club meets the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 1:30 pm. The February 8th book is “Clara and Mr. Tiffany” by Susan Vreeland. Contact Bev Webster at 945-4089 for more information.

This winter, one thing has been made painstakingly clear… the 2011 season was a gift that we will not be receiving again this year. Unfortunately that’s just how it is in this crazy little snowsports loving world that many of us in Ellicottville reside in. You win some and you don’t win others. You get epic seasons and you get seasons that make you shake your head in total bewilderment. It’s still much too early to call this season a loss and in reality it hasn’t been. When you think

about the lack of snow we have received and the lack of freezing temperatures this season has given us, Ellicottville could be in much more of a dire situation. Ski areas throughout the country have been affected by this bizarre winter pattern and the reality is that Ellicottville has been luckier than most. We’ve been privy to some pretty nice bluebird days, which is somewhat abnormal for the start of the Western New York winter period. Those days have resulted in some very

impressive goggle-tans being showcased in the Main Chalet at HoliMont. True, the glade skiing hasn’t exactly been epic this season but on the bright side a recent study has shown that the average skier has improved their ability to make short-radius carved turns by approximately 13% *. Sure, HoliMont hasn’t been able to build a halfpipe thus far but given the limited time we have had for actually making snow it’s a testament to the Mountain Crew that we even have a terrain park. In fact, more switch tailpress 360-off’s have been thrown down already in the park than any prior season before**. So while Ellicottville may be down in skier visits this season compared to last season the fact of the matter is that there is no shortage of fun to be had because the slopes do have snow on them. The snow is solid, the coverage is good and more often than not the conditions are much better than you would expect as you’re looking out the window of your house and seeing little to no snow on your lawn. By the time this article comes out there will be approximately two months left of the season so take advantage of every opportunity that you get to make your way out onto the slopes and make some turns. You’ll be glad you did. As always, HoliMont is open to non-members every Monday through Friday. We hope to see you here many times throughout the remainder of the season. *Completely made up statistic **No possible way of verifying this whatsoever

Friday February 10th E-Ville Spirits is offering an Educational Scotch Seminar for those who would like to learn more about the history, lore, and making of Scotch Whiskey. The seminar will be at the E-Ville Spirits store on Monroe beginning at 8:00pm. Reservations are required and may by made by calling 699-4474.

Human beings have been brewing adult beverages for thousands of years, and there seems to be no limit to the ingenuity of people to concoct brews. Who would think the same ingredients that go into bread can make such a wide variety of potent potables? As one of the oldest libations Scotch has a unique history and lore. Whiskey brewing is believed to have originated with the ancient Celts. The beverage they distilled was called uisge beatha or “water of life.” It was first mentioned in Scotland when several barrels of it showed up in 1494 on an inventory of the Exchequer. By 1644 the first taxes where placed on its production which brought about the inevitable bootlegging. By 1780 the number of illegal stills greatly outnumbered the legal breweries. The modern era of Scotch production began in 1823 when Parliament moved to decrease the number of illegal stills, and unified the many taxes on Scotch to a single Excise Tax. About the same time a “continuous still” was developed, allowing easier production of a less strong but smoother product. Over the years

Scotland had moved to protect the integrity of its native brew by defining production techniques and labeling regulations. According to Bob Duke at E-Ville Spirits the seminar is “getting to be a very popular event.” He points out that the store stocks 45 single malt Scotchs, and that “we’re getting to be a destination for single malt Scotches.” Their Scotch buyers come from as far away as Ohio, Pennsylvania, and of course Canada. On hand for the evening will be a distillery master from one of their Scotch distributors who will lead the seminar. The master will explain how the barley is cured, how malting is done, and how the Scotch is aged in oak barrels. She’ll explain the difference between single, blended, and malted Scotch. By the end of the evening Bob says, “everyone will have a good understanding how the Scotch came to be in that bottle.” Scotches vary from light to heavy, and as Bob says, “Scotch has something for everyone.” The seminar will last about two hours and there will be time for questions and sampling.

Statement on Rt. 219 Bridge Senator Catharine Young Makes Statement on Rt. 219 Bridge

“The bridge will re-open, which is a tremendous relief to residents and small businesses. The Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Governor’s office were responsive to my request for a quick review, and they did a terrific job in expediting the structural analysis. The DOT has promised they will fix the bridge as quickly as possible. I am grateful for their diligence because the closure hurts our economy and quality of life. My hat is off to Governor Cuomo, his staff, and everyone who weighed in. Our voices were heard.”

Up Close & Personal The Marx Family Stays Close Through Skiing

o s g d

Valleys Lounsbury Adaptive Ski Program, she traveled to Aspen for a three month internship to work with Challenge Aspen to teach disabled skiers adaptive skiing. That was four years ago. At the time she had no idea how an intersection of fate would let her to appear in the film The Movement. Some time earlier the COO of Universal Studios, while skiing at Aspen, suffered a severe collision with a tree. X-rays revealed he had severed his spine leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. In the movie Rick Finkelstien explains how the desire to ski again started to grow, until he felt compelled to return to Aspen and ski once more. Here, he met up with Nichole Marx and her boyfriend, Ryan Latham who are PSIA instructors in Aspens adaptive ski program. A group of filmmakers were producing a movie about the adaptive program and followed Nicole and Ryan around as they retaught Rick how to ski using a mono ski and outriggers. In addition to being an expert in alpine, freestyle and adaptive skiing, she recently received her certification as a white water rafting guide. As her dad says, “she gets paid to do what other people pay to do.” In a very real way it was skiing that started the family. Bill and Mary Ann met through a singles ski club. As soon as they were married and had children the family hit the slopes. Both girls were on skis as young as two and a half. Mary Ann was a nurse who went on to become a nurse manager at Sisters of Charity Hospital in Buffalo. Although she didn’t pursue a path towards ski patrol, she is an avid recreational

skier. Bill’s professional life involved residential pool sales, but his passion was clearly with skiing. As Nichole and Kristen got older, Bill took them with him on weekend ski patrol duty. Even if the girls were off skiing elsewhere, the family met up for lunch; a tradition that continues to this day. Kirsten has forged her own path with ski patrol. She began training for ski patrol at the tender age of 15. After receiving her degree at Boston University she went to work in human resources at Canon Design, and currently works at ADP. She is now Assistant Patrol Director at Holiday Valley, as well as Eastern Division Ski and Toboggan Trainer /Evaluator staff member, conducting ski training clinics at Holiday Valley and other Eastern ski resorts. It was through her instructing that she met her husband Mike Russo, now in his sixth year of ski patrol. She also does mountain survival training; teaching recruits how to build an igloo should they get caught in a storm. In 2010 she was awarded the WNY regions “patroller of the year.” Dad credits her 20 years of ballet class with giving her the strength and poise to handle a fully loaded toboggan down a steep run. Looking back, Bill credits skiing with helping the family develop the close bonds they now enjoy. “The kids going on ski patrol every Sunday, kept us close together as a family” Bill says. He goes on, “ski patrol is like an extended family, and it’s kind of bonded us together.” The film The Movement will be shown and Holiday Valley this Saturday the 4th at 7:00pm.

Architectual Digest Solid, Secluded and Spectacular

Story and Photos By John Thomas Staff Writer Anybody can buy a ski condo and join the crowd in a bunch of lilliputian cookie cutter digs. Some skiers see a ski country condo as just a crash pad between runs, and that’s fine. But, there are those to whom a home in ski country is more than just a convenience. They want a place that feels like a home, has some style, and offers a chance to get away and unwind any time of the year. This home is just minutes from Holiday Valley and HoliMont, but is set in a secluded forest on two acres of land. It’s a place to relax, unwind, and get away from the crowd.

This distinctly contemporary design benefits from the beautiful woodwork throughout. Large south facing windows flood the inside with sunlight. The ground floor has a large entryway, a game room, two bedrooms and a full bath. Upstairs the second story with its high ceilings, and large windows is light bright and airy. The height of the ceiling is impressive and the bank of windows glorious. The wood burning stove in the living room provides warmth in winter and takes the chill off those cool summer nights. The high ceiling give the kitchen and dining room an open feel, and the hard wood floor adds warmth. Two more bedrooms and a full bath round out the

second floor. Oak trim and six panel doors give the home a more substantial feel. The two upstairs bedrooms each have their own balcony. The two acre wooded setting is perfect for a sense of isolation. The home is on a dead end street so there is very little traffic to disturb the quiet, and you can feel secure as the neighbors are not too far away. Close to hiking on state land, the casino, and golf, you can come and relax any time of the year. It’s a well built, unique, and stylish home, and a step up from the cookie cutter.

Truth Or Consequences Obama the Myth

Koran. These attacks and many more are obviously false but many folks, despite the evidence, refuse to see the truth and the GOP candidates, when not trying to kill each other, keep adding to the Obama myth.  My personal favorite is the “weak on foreign policy” Obama.  The Obama who wants to read terrorists their rights.  The apologist Obama.  Remember when Seal Team Six read Bin Laden his rights just before they blew his head off and tossed him in the ocean?  Yeah, that guy.

President inexplicably paused and congratulated Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta for something that had happened earlier that night. That brief “good job tonight” remained a mystery until the next morning when we learned that a Seal Team had just parachuted into Somalia, killed nine pirates and rescued two hostages including an ailing American Aid Worker. The Pirates never knew what hit them.  Other bands in the country, including some who are also holding hostages immediately began scanning the sky wondering when the next strike would occur.  That, my friends, is how to terrify a terrorist.        This most recent operation obviously wasn’t an isolated incident.  There was, of course, the death of Osama led by members of the same Seal Team. There have been other operations in Somalia or in coastal waters near the horn of Africa which have also gone smoothly.  We’ve taken out terrorists in Yemen who never saw it coming and, of course, those Iranian nuclear scientists keep blowing up.  If this proves anything it proves that the President knows what he’s doing as far as modern warfare is concerned.  We have the best trained and most technologically advanced Special Forces in the world and, when used properly, nothing can stand in their way.      Of course, the Republicans running for their lives in the Primaries will never mention any of these accomplishments or give credit where credit is due. They would rather you just see the Muslim-In-Chief who hates America, wants your guns and money and stumbles blindly around the world coddling Terrorists and dictators.  To bad for them that President is a Myth.

By: Lilian Dirito, C.N.H.P Wellness Consultant

Statistics show that unless we start making important changes in our lifestyle, one in EIGHT women will get breast cancer. According to some researchers, one of the main concepts we need to learn is that breast cancer is primarily an estrogen-dependant cancer. That means, it is triggered by exposure to excessive amounts of estrogen, not just estrogen our body produces, but environmental chemicals that mimic estrogens. So, the first step is to keep these negative estrogens also called “xenoestrogens” in check. It is also very important to have a healthy diet by eating organic fruits and vegetables, and avoiding meat and chicken treated with hormones and antibiotics. Estrogens are commonly fed to dairy cattle and chicken to increase milk and egg production, this is in addition to pesticides residues that wind up in these foods. Another source of xenoestrogens based on Steve Horne’s research, is plastics. Some examples are soft plastic toys, soft plastic containers, and water bottles. There are also xenoestrogens in some laundry detergents, household cleaning products, shampoos, perfumes and cosmetics. Your body has natural means of defense to destroy excess

estrogens. The liver is one of the main organs in charge of breaking down these toxins. You might think, then let the liver do its work! However it is not that simple, because the liver has more than 500 different functions, it gets over worked and when it gets full of toxins it is hard to get them out of the body. For the liver to be able to detoxify it needs to get good nutrition to function properly. Foods high in sulfur are very important, like garlic, onions and cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, mustard greens and turnips. There is also a sulfur compound as a supplement from cruciferous vegetables called Indole-3 Carbinol that is particularly helpful in breaking down excess estrogens. It can be used as a supplement by women wishing to reduce their risk of breast cancer, for fighting breast cancer and other ailments caused by excess estrogen like hot flashes before and during menopause. Herbal liver cleanses such as All Cell Detox and EnviroDetox can also help the body breaking down not only xenoestrogens, but other chemicals as well. It is important to nurture your body with pH balance nutrients and antioxidants, like Ultimate Green Zone and Thai-go or Super Orac. You also need good fats in your body from nuts, avocados, deep ocean fish and coconut oil, or supplement with Flax Seed Oil or Super Omega 3. New research shows the importance of supplementing with Vitamin D. Researchers at the University Of Rochester Medical Center followed 155 breast cancer patients months before and after surgery. Low vitamin D levels were seen in the presence of biomarkers of aggressive tumors.  Women with triple-negative tumors were three times as likely to have low vitamin D levels

when compared with other breast cancers. The best ways to increase your vitamin D levels is to absorb the sun’s rays and to consume it through food and high quality supplements. Also enhance the health of your breast by making sure your glandular system is working properly and your hormones are balanced. For starters, experts recommend getting an adequate intake of iodine. The thyroid is the bigger user of this awesome nutrient. The second user is your breasts. Natural sources of iodine may help women with breast cysts as well. Iodine can be found in supplements like Kelp, Dulse and concentrated Black Walnut. I personally like the herbal combination Master Gland; it has these nutrients and more to support the entire glandular system. Pro-GYam, a progesterone cream helps to balance hormones and block the action of xenoestrogens. Also, the use of underarm antiperspirant deodorants blocks the release of toxins from sweat glands in the armpits and contributes to lymphatic stagnation. Try using Nature’s Fresh with a little of your favorite essential oils or a natural organic deodorant from NYR Organics. Last but not least, keep your lymph moving! The breast is part of the lymphatic system, it is very important to keep it clean and moving. Exercise, especially jumping in a rebounder is very helpful. Also realize that long periods of worry and anger can be internal toxins, draining your health. Take some time to experience joy, laughter, love and peacefulness through relaxing with friends, family and companion animals, spending time in nature, walking, dancing, yoga, tai chi or other forms of movement (like Zumba Fitness), watching funny movies, meditating, drawing, painting or using your creativity in other ways

Fred Sinclair, representing Allegany County, asked whether the regional approach will complement local efforts, or rather, “Promote a healthy competition.” While not having an answer, Zink said he’s hoping that existing programs already functioning in the counties will be allowed by the Federal Department of Agriculture and Markets. Chautauqua County Executive Greg Edwards suggested that locally grown food products could be marketed to schools. Zink said that perhaps farmers could join together to provide storage units or a commercial kitchen, “to provide refrigeration and other things necessary to make it happen.” Edwards described what he called a “food hub” that could

to do a week of shows near Valentine’s Day, “Which is by far the biggest holiday in Japan. I just fell in love with the idea of Valentine’s shows, and then I did them here for a long time. It’s just a great time to sing really romantic music.” Coolidge wrote a couple of Valentine’s songs and is hoping that plenty of romantically inclined people come out to listen. But have no fear, Rita Coolidge will play her most loved songs, like “(Your Love Has Lifted Me) rHigher and Higher,” “We’re All tAlone,” and “The Way You nDo the Things You Do.” She eadds, “We’ll probably be doing some Native music, a little jazz, y

serve the entire three county region from a central location. The idea will be studied by Southern Tier West. Efforts to reduce greenhouse gasses within a five-county region are being explored through a study funded by a $998,000 grant through NYSERDA, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. Zink notes that the goal of the study is to make recommendations “To reduce the greenhouse gasses by 80% by the year 2050. The final contract has not been sent from NYSERDA yet, but we are anticipating it next week, at which time we will work with Allegany County to get it signed. We’d like to start this process as soon as possible.” The “exhaustive” eight-month study should be completed by October 31st of 2012. Zink said, “We’d really like the Southern Tier to be noticed during this study. It’s something that could easily be swallowed up by (the) Buffalo-Niagara (region).” Edwards commented about a “congestion problem” with regard to electricity. He compared the current electric

grid to “Taking a system that’s designed with ten inch water pipes and replacing them with four inch water pipes. As a result, electricity we produce here we can’t sell in other markets. For me it’s a very important thing, because it’s on the verge of putting NRG out of business. In Dunkirk, that’s by far the largest property tax payer. 145 employees work there.” Edwards also commented on economic development efforts with the Seneca Nation of Indians. “From my perspective we have a very good relationship with the Senecas, recently driven by President (Robert) Porter. That is not true across the state.” Edwards cited pressure being built in the Oneida region and other areas, “Which makes it harder for us here to have an economic development partnership with the Senecas. I will try to use what we’re able to do here as an example of what could happen in other areas around the state.” The next board meeting of the Southern Tier West Regional Planning and Development Board is scheduled for Wednesday, March 15th.

some blues, and a little rock and roll. My show is pretty eclectic , but I think it holds together well because myself and the band are the common thread.” About her hits, Coolidge tells about a time she went to see Luther Vandross at the Hollywood Bowl. She’s a big fan of his and the two are now good friends, but she was “devastated” at the time because he did not perform his biggest songs. “Since then and for the rest of my life, I will be doing those (my hit) songs. “ She mentioned that James Taylor once said, “When I recorded ‘You’ve Got a Friend,’ little did I know that I would be doing it every single show for the rest of my life.” Can you find romance in today’s music? Rita Coolidge tells us, ”You’ve got to look for it and you will find it. A

lot of it is in country music. There are songs on (Lady) Gaga’s records that move my heart. She did a Thanksgiving show singing songs as if they were all ballads. And it was amazing! So I think you just have to dig in and look.” Another example is Christina Aguilera with her tribute to Etta James. “I never heard anything like it, I was in tears. Certainly romance is alive. Come to Rita’s show!” Is Rita Coolidge planning any new recordings or projects? “I’ve got one that may or may not come out. I’m not really at liberty to talk about, but there are things in the wings.” Tickets for Rita Coolidge start at $20 and are available through Ticketmaster and the Seneca Allegany Events Center of the Seneca Allegany Casino.
