Ladies from all over Western New York are invited to spend a weekend of pampering, relaxation, and recreation in and around the village of Ellicottville. Girls Getaway Weekend will kick off on Friday, June 2 and continue through Saturday, June 3 with multitudinous activities throughout both days. “Originally, the event started in 2007 and ran until 2011,” said Ellicottville Chamber

of Commerce Membership and Events Manager Barb Pump. “It was created to focus on women’s issues, activities, and interests.” Revamped and back in Ellicottville, this year’s Getaway will begin with a welcome reception at EllicottVillas, located on Route 242 East. The reception will include hors d’oeuvres and wine and beer tastings as well as a gift bag to start the weekend off right.

By Chad Neal As stated in many articles in the Villager newspaper, Ellicottville is ever evolving. Change is constant in this little resort burg and it has been documented to the fullest in the Villager. Three new changes are transpiring now in the village and involve some of the key players in the commerce we share in Ellicottville. Katy’s Cafe is moving down the street, The Law Offices of John C. Nelson are also moving to a new location and an addition to Adventure Bound onthefly has appeared. The Villager has caught up with these businesses and got the low down on the changes. John Nelson answered some questions about his growth and move to his new location on Washington St. in the Ellicottville

1,761 Miles To Another Amazing World

By Carol Fisher, This writer is not a world traveler; not even much of United States traveler compared to some. So, it was quite a delight to be invited to spend five days in Santé Fe, New Mexico with my co-workers, Laura Solly the owner of daff and Arlee Solly, the owner of Kazoo II. Our merry band of six did a good amount of frenetic shopping at the street vendor markets populated by Native artisans seated on the ground and bundled up in their beautiful native designed blankets against the cold and brutal wind.

John Nelson (JN): When I started my own firm four years ago, it was just me renting a small desk from Kathleen (Moriarity) next door. Within a few weeks, I had a parttime assistant and within a few months I needed more space. I’m now at 4.5 employees and myself. We are bursting at the seems in the space we’re at now. V: Who else if anyone is involved in your move? JN: Josh Zolner from Apex Construction has been instrumental in the move. He has been more than accommodating and sees the vision I have for my space.

Fall Festival Discussed

E’ville’s Oldest & Largest Festival to See Small Changes

Ellicottville, NY – Recently the Chamber of Commerce staff and Board of Directors met with members regarding the Fall Festival and how to keep the event moving forward on a positive note.

Hollywood Happening

Annual Event by Gowanda Harley Davidson

Story by John Thomas; Staff Writer Wildlife Habitat A number of citizens attended the Town Board meeting last week regarding the DEC plan to establish a Wildlife Management Area on Poverty Hill Road. Each person there expressed support for the proposal. The plan is to set aside 379 acres of land on Poverty Hill, but the majority of the habitat would be in Mansfield. Kenneth Baginski and Emilio Rende from the DEC presented the proposal to the Town Board last month. Village Trustee Patra Lowes said she was “very excited” regarding the habitat, and wanted to see the project move forward. Grace Kell who lives on Poverty Hill said the area is zoned low density and said, “this is the complete definition of what low density means, and it’s something we should all really want.” Dan Minner lives at the end of Lindberg and added, “It’s a really beautiful area. I see all kinds of wildlife there.” Another woman said it would be a benefit for a healthy community; it would “look good on us.” Jodie Timkey said she “would love to see this project.” There was some question as to why more information wasn’t released to the public before or after last month’s board meeting. Matt McAndrew explained saying prior to last month (April) he had received a request from the DEC to make a presentation to the See “BOARD” Page 7

Don’t you just love national holidays? A threeday weekend this time of year means finally getting around to planting some

posies, enjoying a barbeque on the deck, and having a little down-time to relax with the family. While you’re out there enjoying some sunshine and barbeque chicken, keep in mind we owe our pre-summer break to the thousands of men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. I speak, of course, of those who have perished while serving in the armed forces. If you really think about it, Memorial Day will be a somber day for the many families who have lost loved ones ensuring our country’s

liberty. And for the over 8,000 veterans still living in Cattaraugus County, this is a time for remembrance of the friends lost who served alongside them; those who literally “gave their all.” So, dear readers, by all means, enjoy this wonderful weekend to its fullest. Just make sure you remember – even briefly – why you’re able to live in such a wonderful place at such a wonderful time. It’s all about freedom and it’s about those who contributed to this end in the most honorable of ways. Until next week … JZ-C

“ Spirit of Sarah Scholarship”

The Sarah Burke Foundation & Momentum Camps award Bella Bacon

Whistler, BC. After much deliberation, the 2017 ‘Spirit of Sarah Scholarship’ has been awarded to Bella Bacon -13 years old from Ellicottville, NY. She will enjoy a Free Full Package Ski Camp with Momentum this summer in Whistler, BC worth over $2600, where she will be trained and mentored by Olympians and X-Games competitors. Bella is the 6th girl to receive the scholarship since Sarah passed away in 2012. Bella says she’s “so excited to

experience the atmosphere at Momentum and learn from the best coaches.” The judging panel, which includes Sarah’s mother Jan Phelan, Sarah’s husband Rory Bushfield, National Team Halfpipe Head Coach Trennon Paynter and Camp Director John Smart were impressed with Bella’s independent, driven and yet humble approach to skiing. Bella informed us that she is getting ready for camp by playing soccer to stay fit and practicing on her backyard

rail set up, which she paid for and built herself in order to progress her rail skills. Camp Director John Smart says, “Bella shows great talent, dedication and the guts to send it. She also has a quiet demeanor and modesty that her talent hides behind.” Rory Bushfield also added, “Bella is a rad skier. She seems very sweet and I believe she has a bright future.” The ‘Spirit of Sarah Scholarship’ was created in honour and memory of long time coach and former camper Sarah Burke, who died in a tragic ski accident in 2012. One of the causes dear to Sarah’s heart was encouraging young girls to follow their dreams and believe in their skiing abilities. She inspired so many young women through her incredible skiing talent and strength, but more importantly through her demonstration of modesty, kindness and her wonderful approach to life. Sarah was a camper with Momentum for 4 years and a coach for 11 years.

CAMP is the 501 c 3 non-profit organization which has been working for three years to save and restore this Cattaraugus County owned Memorial to its Civil War Veterans. The Ceremony will be on Monday May 29, 2017 at 9:00 am before the annual Little Valley Memorial Day Parade and Cemetery Ceremony.

Horseradish Festival

2017 Hinsdale Horseradish Festival June 3 at Hinsdale Memorial Park

Not only will you find everything horseradish, you’ll find vendors with wine, craft beer, pottery, handmade jewelry, furniture, handmade soaps, country crafts, candles, paintings and more! The festival will be held June 3, 2017, at the Hinsdale Memorial Park, at 1547 Gile Hollow Road in the Town of Hinsdale.  The venue is

ideal! The park is located only one-half mile south of I-86, directly off of Route 16. It’s an easy drive from anywhere in western NY or northern PA. For those of you who are unfamiliar with our festival you may ask “Why a Horseradish Festival? Why Hinsdale”? Well, Cuba has their Garlic Festival, Franklinville has their Maple Festival, Bradford

has their Stink Fest and Olean well there is always something going on in Olean (except for that 1st weekend in June)… and we wanted Hinsdale to be remembered for something. Besides, in the early 1900’s, horseradish really was a “hot commodity” in Hinsdale. Maude Bell and her family grew horseradish right here along the banks of the Ischua Creek and hauled it by horse and buggy to the market in Olean. Here is the schedule: Saturday June 3rd- 11am1pm: TBA. 1:30-4:30pm: Diggin Roots Band (All WNY Music Award-won second place in the Best Blues Band/ Act category). 5:30-8pm: Nick Kody and the Creek Road Band For more information, you can find the event on facebook.

So, it was quite a delight to be invited to spend five days in Santé Fe, New Mexico with my co-workers, Laura Solly the owner of daff and Arlee Solly, the owner of Kazoo II. Never having been to the desert, it was quite an eye opener to discover a world so dramatically different, almost opposed to our world here in the northeastern part of the US, where everything in May is green, wet, and lush. It was almost as if we were in another country. Not only because of the dry, desert terrain, but because of the people, the culture, and the architecture. Pictures cannot tell the full story of the row upon row of tiny adobe homes tucked into the dry, red and brown landscape. These homes melt into the landscape unless you purposely seek them out. Even those homes which are more elaborate, carrying two stories on their adobe backs, blend right in. It’s as if they are saying, “we seek anonymity, and an escape from the glaring spotlight of city living, where mansions and unique dwellings are a way of calling attention to our prosperity and/or fame. You really have to see these with your own eyes. Although our merry band of six did a good amount of frenetic shopping at the street vendor markets populated by Native artisans seated on the ground and bundled up in their beautiful native designed blankets against the cold and brutal wind, we still felt a sense of calm and spirituality, undoubtedly conveyed by these, mostly ancient, artisans. Their wares were exquisite: silver and turquoise, brass, stitchery and pottery were offered at every tiny blanket covered floor spots. Their

calm, subdued, almost indifferent demeanor was curious, compared to that of vendors at stalls found at our own fairs. With some, we had to cross a language barrier as we gently bartered for the best price. Moving away from the Native American Market, Arleen and Laura led us to store after store, museum after museum, artisans’ homes/shops, introducing us to more art than we could ever imagine in one geographic region. Faith is a big deal in this region. Our Lady of Guadalupe appears at every turn, just as she did to Juan Diego in 1531 creating a miracle which was instrumental in converting many to the Roman Catholic religion. Juan’s robe is still, all these years later, safely kept at the church in Guadalupe, revealing an image of Mary, which she impressed upon his robe to convince the Bishop that she appeared to Juan, now Saint Juan Diego. On the road, our first stop was a remote adobe church that looked over a cemetery which would make Father Ron at Holy Name of Mary gasp. It was filled with headstones guarded by elaborate fences, photos, flowers, memorabilia, and a small replica of the church itself. We were fortunate to have a native man stop to speak to us. He informed us that a man whose mother was dedicated to all things church, copied the church exactly in miniature, and created an eternal resting place for her within that cemetery, 200 feet from the mother church. Further up the road, we passed a wildly running stream. Laura made a quick turnaround for us to admire it as water is rare, and the stream a gift from the surfeit of snows on the high Sangre de Cristo mountains toward which we were heading, with the hopes

Up Close & Personal:

of getting to Taos. Imagine turning around to admire the streams and waterways that we take for granted here in our lush environment. This high road, very desolate, very brown, with low brush and scrub dotting the rock and sand, led us to a Mission in Chimayo. This Mission is the destination of thousands of pilgrims who work their way up the mountain, some for weeks, on foot, babies and ancients, some carrying life sized crosses, statues and religious artifacts, to leave on high mountain tops or carry to Chimayo to ask for blessings or healing. Crutches line the walls of one of the rooms while fences, trees, posts, or anything that one can attach a cross, heart, rosary or other emblem of hope, faith, or gratitude are literally filled. A side room has a well filled with “holy dirt,” which believers scoop up and bless themselves with, taking more to share with loved ones. Bottom line, although we adore our beloved EVL, we are hardly not the center of the earth, as we like to believe we are. We are totally blessed with an abundance of nature which God/Mother Earth has provided for our pleasure and our wealth. We offer a diverse opportunity for entertainment and physical challenges. In this region, we also find a treasure of amazing shops, talented artisans, fine restaurants for almost every taste (but I do so miss the Sopallias with honey, tamales, lemon ricotta pancakes, and, of course, the margaritas). Travel is great, but with a town like Ellicottville, coming home is always extra sweet. As you find yourself moving about this summer, remember that you are always welcome home to our sweet little village and town. Meanwhile, safe travels. I’ll see you again as I look at our wonderful earth from the view from my deck.

Sean Cornelius, friendly and soft-spoken recently shared with The Villager some of the journey that led to his becoming the successor to Gary Ross, of the Weed Ross Agency. Coming on board in 2014, just two and a half years later on March 16, Sean became the head of the agency that has served Ellicottville, since the fifties. He comes by his chosen profession honestly; his father ran a State Farm office in Kane PA and his grandfather once ran a claims office in McCain County, PA. Sean has a wife, Erin, a psychologist and two sons, Finn –age 2, and Harrisonage 5. As a family they all share a love of the outdoor life. Sean even met Erin on Chautauqua Lake in 2007. Sean’s father and he were racing their sailboat when they flipped over. They were rescued and towed in, by his wife to be! Not your average “first date,” but coincidentally, they were

the legacy of longevity that being “Ellicottville’s Insurance Agency” has meant to so many, for so long! In fact, no other agency has continuously served EVL, generationally speaking! Roseanne has been with Weed Ross since 1974, Kelley for twenty years and Lindsey, ten. Both Roseanne and Lindsey are Evl natives whereas Kelly and Sean, grew up elsewhere. All to create a team uniquely fit to serve the needs of locals as well as newcomers. The Weed Ross office itself has an ethic that matches the sports/fun loving atmosphere of Ellicottville, while their longevity and experience gives them more than ample knowledge to navigate life’s unexpected and sometimes rough water! Sean updated the office to the current level of performing electronic signings for things to a revamp of the “weedross.com” website. Currently dormant; but look for its expected “re-emergence”, in coming months. Weed Ross also has an active Facebook presence. The staff is small family style, not a corporate image. That said, Sean has a total of eighteen insurance companies, national providers as well as local. This allows him to be able to check on the best rates for his clients across a wide range of products for Auto, Home, See SEAN page 6

both living in Florida at the time. She in Miami and he in Jacksonville and the rest…well you know… is their story. Even their dog, Bemus (your regular mutttype, named after Bemus Pt.) went primal on a bobcat who happened to drop in, on one of their hikes! The dog successfully fended it off and sent it running for the safety of the woods. Beyonce ( a French bulldog) loves her family. That love of outdoor life is what drew Sean back to Ellicottville. He started carving it up when he was just ten and twelve years old snowboarding in Erie PA. He worked at the first terrain park in Holiday Valley, also at “Mud, Sweat and Gears.” He graduated St. Bonaventure University with a B.A. in Philosophy/ Pre-Law, in 2003. In his twenties he was working as an insurance adjustor in Florida and was assigned to the “State Farm Catastrophe Team”, traveling throughout the country as needed. He has helped homeowners face such losses as hurricanes, tornadoes, severe water damages, snowstorms, hail events and even wildfires. As we now have year round events with more activities and more varied people being drawn to settle here, Sean is wholly appreciative of his very experienced staff and considers them an integral part of being able to continue

Summer is almost here! Our bodies are ready for new air, new activities, and new emotions. The same way we awake before this season so does nature. Spring and plants have begun to bud and bloom, flowers release their pollen and millions of people are suddenly affected by this change. A common expression of this condition is called hay fever, but the right description for this is Rhinitis. According to herbal expert Steve Horne, Rhinitis is an inflammatory condition that affects the sensitive membranes of the nasal and sinus passages, the eyes and the throat. Allergic Rhinitis may be caused by allergic reactions. There are other causes besides allergies, but whatever the cause, it is not fun to have congested passages. Horne explains that any time the sensitive membranes in your upper respiratory tract are exposed to irritants, inflammation can occur. Tissues swell and mucus is secreted to try to flush the irritation away. He explains that food allergies may play a role as well. Allergic reactions to foods in the intestinal tract will hyper sensitize the immune system and make you more susceptible to respiratory allergies. Common food allergies that may be contributing to rhinitis include wheat, corn, dairy, citrus, eggs, peanut butter, shellfish and soy. Food additives, dyes and preservatives in processed foods may also be a contributing factor. It is always wise to start with an internal cleanse using good quality herbal combinations to support the body in the

process of detoxifying and elimination, this may help to relief the congestion of the lymphatic system as well as the inflammation of the respiratory system. Sources of fiber such as Nature’s Three or Everybody’s Fiber, along with a good cleansing formula like Tiao he Cleanse or Clean Start are a good place to begin. Also digestive enzymes like Food Enzymes or Proactazyme Plus are a great support to break down undigested foods. Be sure to drink plenty of water as well. Nutritional Deficiencies may play a role in allergic rhinitis. When we lack essential nutrients that are needed to regulate the immune response we can originate an oversensitivity of the immune system. For instance, vitamin C and bioflavonoids (especially quercitin) have been shown to reduce histamine reactions. Citrus Bioflavonoids with Vitamin C is a good blend to supply these nutrients. Deficiencies of calcium and magnesium have also been linked with allergic rhinitis. Many of us are low in magnesium particularly. Magnesium complex can be helpful for some people. Most of us know that Omega-3 essential fatty acids are very important to reduce inflammatory reactions; they may help produce compounds that mediate inflammation, therefore, will often help ease inflammatory symptoms in rhinitis. Other nutrients that may help allergy sufferers include Vitamin A, selenium, zinc, pantothenic acid and antioxidants like MSM and Thai-go. Silver Shield is also an excellent relief supplement internally and externally with a spray nozzle. Breathe Free again… I love using Tei-fu Essential Oil or Breath Deep essential oil blends. Both may be inhaled to help open up blocked respiratory passages. The essential oils may help to reduce inflammation and may also help to fight infection. ALJ formula: Herbal nourishment supports a healthy respiratory system that can be challenged by inhaled irritants. The herbal formula ALJ helps balance the natural eliminative functions of the respiratory

system. It supports healthy lung function and helps support the body during seasonal changes. It also helps promote respiratory tissue health. Here’s how. Fenugreek and mullein contain mucilage, a substance that causes the herbs to swell in water. This creates a viscous, fibrous substance that provides a soothing effect. Fennel has traditionally been used as a cleansing herb and is often used after eating. Indians used boneset during seasonal times when the body needed extra nutritional support. Horseradish has a stimulating effect on the respiratory system, which you can easily discover for yourself by eating a small amount of the freshly grated herb. This herbal formula may improve digestive function and lymphatic drainage. It is a valuable remedy for allergic rhinitis linked with food allergies or problems in the gastrointestinal tract. It is particularly useful for reducing allergic reactions in children, available in capsules and liquid form. Hista-Block is a combination of herbs that acts as a natural antihistamine formula. It contains bioflavonoids, especially quercitin, which stabilize cells in the immune system called mast cells, inhibiting the release of histamine. HistaBlock also contains bromelain, an enzyme from pineapple that breaks down proteins and has been shown to reduce inflammation. The bitter orange in the formula is a natural antihistamine and decongestant too.

What’s Shakin’ In E’ville: Whether Outside or In, Ellicottville Is the Town to Be In

By MouthSayTongue Things are heating up and the sun’s out a little more; it’s a sure sign of spring when the beer gardens and patios start opening up at our local restaurants. Let’s see who’s going to be playing around town. Starting the weekend on Thursday, as we like to do in E’ville, we find ourselves at The Gin Mill at 9pm for Joseph and Johnson. They play a nice acoustic set of favorites that are good for dancing or singing along. Friday gets rolling at Balloons main stage at 7pm with The Bleeding Hearts. These guys have been together since 1989 and play all around the Western NY and PA area and play everything from the 60’s through today. Dj Excite will follow with music in the sound booth and the

bartenders will be serving up drinks till 2am. Back over at 20 Washington Street Two Guys Drinking Beer will take the Gin Mill stage at 9pm. While there’s sometimes more than two guys playing with this acoustic group there’s always more than two guys dancing and drinking. We end the evening at Madigans with Dj Shane O’Mack spinning tunes from 10-2am and lot’s of drinks, pool and foosball. Saturday we’re back at Balloons at 6pm where Freightrain will be providing some awesome blues. This band includes some of Buffalo’s finest musicians and they have traveled around the country and abroad. Dj Goodrich will be dishing up some music and patter in the sound booth immediately following to keep the party going. your boats, farms, local retail businesses, restaurants, mechanics’ garages, car washes and Dr.’s offices! With his eye toward longevity, Mr. Cornelius and staff have moved to 4 Monroe Street, to a separate, stand-alone grey house, sporting a new Weed Ross

Next up we go to Villaggio where Keith James will be performing an acoustic set. Another local musician who plays around the area and will be providing some dinner music. Big Sauce Trio returns to The Gin Mill at 9pm. These guys make a lot of sound for a trio and their bluesy rock sets will have you on your feet dancing the night away. Down the street at Madigans DJ Swift Will kick off at 10pm and keep the music flowing till 2am. The A-Team will be slinging drinks from behind the pine. Wednesday, Wings, Wagner and Winston finish out at The Gin Mill at 8pm playing acoustic favorites and most songs you request and those oh so delicious wings. I like the drums best. Have a great week and always support live music. logo embodying the foothills of the Allegany Mountains. Stop by for a visit!

Cont. From Cover contractors have always done it one way for so long they can’t break out of the way they’ve always done it. When he’s done, the space is going to be too cool for a law office. (lol) My wife, Sam is also involved in the move. She has to watch me stress about the building issues and deal with double costs for a few months. She always brings me back to reality on everything. Aaron Tiller from MDA Consulting Engineers has been very helpful with working with the Village. The Village has been very responsive and receptive to what I want to do. It probably helps that I’m not putting in a fourth floor adult bookstore and swingers club. (lol) V: What is your law office about? What are your specialties? JN: Well, there’s a ridiculous rule we aren’t allowed to call ourselves specialists, but So, I eSPECIALly focus in vehicle related offenses, DWI, Traffic, etc. Recently, I’ve moved back into civil litigation too. I’m very blessed to have a great staff; both of my legal assistants, Hayley and Chelsye have Bachelor’s Degrees in Criminal Justice. It helps to have those backgrounds when evaluating cases. My new attorney Stephanie Hale worked on Innocence Project type cases, so she brings that experience to the table. Anyway, so we’re very excited about the move. Of course Kathleen Moriarity has been a great landlord and neighbor, and we’ll miss working right next door to her office, but the growth requires us to move. And if I’m ever lucky enough to stop being

While security within the Village has improved over recent years, concerns were raised regarding stricter enforcement of open containers and increased street patrols in the surrounding residential area.

Cont. From Cover board. But then he heard nothing until the gentleman showed up at the April board meeting. He went on to explain a few details about the habitat. It does not include cutting trails into the woods, and the existing trails and ski runs would not be maintained. Although the area would be designated a Wildlife Refuge, hunting and trapping would be allowed. The land would be open to the public for hiking, and no motorized vehicles would be allowed. Mark Alianello said the state would manage the

shopping specials, karaoke at Madagan’s, Sky High and much more. Girls Getaway Weekend will be a great way to get together with girlfriends and do some exciting activities around good company. “We are still looking to accomplish the same goals as in previous years,” added Pump. “We want women to come and participate, engage, educate, have fun, and create memories.”

The deadline for registration is Monday, May 29. Registration can be completed online at www. ellicottvilleny.com and costs $125 total.

a lawyer, Sam and I have a really great secret idea for the space that will be great for the town. And I promise, it doesn’t involve a fourth floor or an adult bookstore. Adventure Bound Adventure Bound onthefly has added and additional department to their store on Washington Street. The Villager contacted an employee, Emily Arena and asked a few questions. The Villager asked “Who came up with the idea for Ellicottville Boot and Shoe? What is being offered? When did it happen? Why? Where is it located?” Emily responded saying, “Ellicottville Boot and Shoe was created by John and Christy Rounds, owners of Adventure Bound onthefly...as a solution to the ever changing weather conditions and many variable outdoor activities in the area. The most important part of your body while on the trails, in and out of water or through rough winters, is your feet. When your feet are comfortable your body is best engaged in the activity at hand. We have collected the best brands for our challenge, Sorel, Salewa, Chaco and Astral. Ranging from hiking boots to flip flops, water shoes to winter boots, the coverage is vast for the clients to choose many options to keep their feet happy. We also carry Point 6 socks that are designed for your desires from running, everyday, hiking tech, and winter weather. Super Feet Soles are offered to best accompany the shoes and get the most extreme comfort and life from the footwear. Every foot is vastly different, we can literally build the best shoe for the range of sizes and we will focus on providing the best experience with the gear on the market.” Katy’s Cafe

The next move that will be noticed by many locals and visitors is Katy’s Cafe moving from their current locale on Washington Street two small blocks north to the building where Coffee Culture was, next to Madigan’s. The Villager caught up with Katy Arena, the proprietor of Katy’s and garnered some information from her. The Villager asked her why they were moving and Arena answered in an email response; “It just seemed like the right move. Our fiveyear lease is up at the end of spring at our current location. I do love our space, however it just became too small for our growing customer base. During weekends I am often asked ‘where is the rest of the dining room’ or ‘is this it’? Our current location only seats about 30/35. The new location should seat 60+ on the inside and there is plenty of room on the patio for seating as well. The availability of space and parking were key factors in our decision making process.” Arena also said they are planning a tentative opening on June 2. With the growth the Villager asked about taking on new staff members and other changes, she replied thusly, “We are hoping to hire some new employees and extend our hours, especially during winter and summer seasons. In the future I am hoping to expand our coffee menu. We will be starting out with what we know and going from there I want to say thank you to all of our customers. I would never have been able to do any of this with out all of you. We have grown so much over the last five years and I can’t wait to see what the next five will bring. I am really looking forward to the move and hope to see everyone at the new location enjoying breakfast on the patio.”

a huge economic engine for the village generating in excess of 10 million dollars in revenue and provides a major trickledown effect for all levels of employees, notfor-profits and residents who receive more than $50,000 from various donations and events they manage.

provide an excellent blueprint for future festivals.

forest and grassland areas. Mr. McAndrew said the DEC had told him without a letter of support from the Town Board; the deal would be dead. All present expressed their desire to have the Town issue the letter. The DEC is having two appraisals performed on the property and will pay the going market rate. The funds for the purchase and maintenance will come from federal funds provided by the Pittman Robertson Foundation. The board voted to issue the letter of support to applause from the group. Supervisors Report Supervisor McAndrew spoke about the Four Flushers meeting on May 16. He said there is a large

to-do list in the Town. Mark Alianello mentioned staff had been able to solve the back-up data problem with the CUPPS computer. He said the master water meters continue to be a problem, and they will look at a program to start replacing them. The water leak by Fitzpatrick and Weller began underground and had flowed into the creek by their building. That was why it took years to discover. Once the leak was fixed, the demand on the Village well declined by 30%. The well in the trailer park needs maintenance; it used to draw about 400 gallons per day, and now is down to only 250.

My name is Joey and I need your help! Joey is 23 years old and in need of a kidney transplant. A transplant with a living donor would give him the best possible chance and the best possible results. Joey has worked for the Amherst Highway Department since he graduated from High School, loves basketball (especially Kobe Bryant) and hockey. He just recently adopted a second dog from the SPCA. He has lived his life for the fullest for 23 years. Joey’s family members have been ruled out as donors. He needs some help again. Joey is blood type “O” If you are interested in donating please contact joesimonick@cs.com or 716-633-7990 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. Published Every Thursday / AD DEADLINE: Mondays at 4pm

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!

Board

Cont. From Page 7 Mr. McAndrew had a meeting with the major players in creating the Director of Public Works position. Grant writer Diana Chihak attended and said there might be a consolidation grant for village services available. The job description for the position should be completed next week. The water agreement with the Village expires at the end of this month, but the joint Public Works Department has yet to be created. A motion was passed to extend the agreement until December 31. The state is urging municipalities to share as many services as possible. Mr. Hinman attended a meeting of the County Supervisors to discuss ideas. Any agreements between municipalities will require public hearings which will be held in Town Center. Police Report Officer in Charge Don Auge reported the Relay for Life Fill the Boot Drive collected $2,800. He said it was not bad considering it was held the weekend of the canceled Regatta. The Officer said a lot of vehicles got stuck in the camping fields in Great Valley. Auge reported the patrol rifles and ammo had arrived. In June, there will be training on them for his officers. The police department received a letter of thanks from Tony and Tiffany Giannicchi. Mia Giannicchi called 911 to report a stranger

outside their home when she was home alone. Mia called her mother as well who immediately rushed home to discover multiple officers were already there checking on the situation. The stranger turned out to be the father one of Mia’s friends. The parents wrote the letter to thank the department for taking the call from a young girl seriously and responding so quickly. Highway Department Tom Scharf said he had obtained bids for gravel from Machias and the county that were very close. A motion was passed to authorize him to purchase gravel from the lowest bid or the county. He said it is time to replace the ’08 Ford 550 truck. He obtained a price of $101,000 for a new 550 with a plow. Mr. Scharf said the new truck would work with the old sander. The board authorized him to make the purchase. Scharf said he had rented a broom (street sweeper) and had cleaned the Town’s streets. He said it worked much better than the tow-behind sweeper and suggested the town think about purchasing one in the future. Engineering Report Mark Alianello said work on the HVAC system in Town/Village Hall is going well. They have installed the furnaces in the rafters above the ceiling of the storage room. The work should be completed in midJune. Work on the booster station by Holiday Valley is going slowly. They had some flooding damage and some other issues, but the company is working through them.

Beginner Ladies Clinics : May 24th, 2017 : Holiday Valley Resort

Clerk Audit Greg Fitzpatrick performed an audit on the Clerk’s Office for fiscal year 2015-16. He said Robyn had collected $1,300 in alarm fees for 52 alarms in town. Mr. Fitzpatrick suggested sending out alarm registration forms with the tax bills to make more residents aware of the Alarm Law. EVGV Trail The Ellicottville Great Valley Recreational Trail Committee is holding a Ham and Turkey Raffle on June 4 at the Legion. Tickets are available at Watson’s Chocolates. Mark Alianello reported the wetlands scientist had completed his report on the first leg of the trail and submitted it to the Army Corps of Engineers. The final design of the route between Town Center and Tim Horton’s is taking shape. They are ready to sign easement agreements with the five property owners along the path. The Board determined the Town will be the agency to sign the easement agreements. There was a discussion about who will be responsible for maintaining the trail in the future. After a discussion, the board said the committee should bear the responsibility. Mr. McAndrew said the new EV charging stations at Town Center are working. They were installed as part of the NYSERDA grant application. (See EVL Charges into the Future story this issue). McAndrew said the paperwork for the grant had been submitted, and now it’s “wait and see.”

Beat on the Street:

What was the Best Surprise You Ever Received?

By Chad Neal Being surprised is an every day thing somewhere and somehow. They don’t generally come too often individually, but right now out there someone is being surprised by something. The good surprises are obviously the better ones, because the bad ones can cause grief and sadness, which I believe wholeheartedly no one enjoys. The pure flood of certain chemicals and hormones that flow over one’s brain during a beautiful surprise is outstanding. We’ve all been surprised in our lives and more than once. When a very young baby hears a loud noise, that surprise startles her, because it is a surprise. Surprises can happen in many forms, many good and many bad. Basically it is a situation or happening that caught the surprisee off guard. Sometimes a conspiratorial surprise will cause a person to inhale deeply and in all actuality respond as though they are in danger. And naturally occurring surprises are deemed as divine fate. The happiness starts when that initial reaction is downplayed, after the “phew” moment is had and the smile and laughter come. What was the best surprise you ever received?

Jane C.- Being told I was having twins.

Matt H.- Puberty. I was confused.

Melissa E.- Finding a light in the darkness.

Rebecca W.-My son Eli !! Went to the Dr., I Jolene D.-My best friend Emily A.- The surprise had an IUD in, no way and love of my life John of a pure and genuine was being pregnant in another on my radar. 6 months K. asked me to marry character pregnant? Whattt??!! human. him.
