One Summer event that is always in good taste is the annual Taste of Ellicottville. This year marks the 27th annual foodie party, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and Sysco. The dates are August 11th and 12th. noon to 4pm both days. About 18 of the local restaurants participate by setting up tents selling samples of their tasty fare. The main section of downtown is closed to traffic to allow participants easy access to the food booths. Participants will be able to sample everything from pizza, to ribs. Ravioli, to pulled pork sandwiches. But save room for desert; many of the restaurants will be offering some of their luscious deserts. Tickets can be purchased for $1 each, and will be sold during the event. Food items generally go for one to four tickets. Stroll around our beautiful historic downtown, linger by the antique gazebo, and sample great local food. All you have to bring is your taste buds and an empty stomach. - John Thomas

view is simply spectacular! The green forest canopy over the hills and mountains was very striking, and the crystal blue waters of Chautauqua Lake – breathtaking. The boats all looked like tiny dots until my pilot took us in for a closer look. Such fun! I’ve always known how fortunate we are to live in such a scenic part of the state, but getting above it all really gives one an indelible impression of its true beauty. We should all thank our lucky stars to be in this place at this particular time. Enjoy every day to its fullest! Until next week… JZ

In 2005 we established the Rotary Club of Ellicottville Foundation for Youth to address the needs of the less fortunate in the Ellicottville area. The Foundation in that same year established a permanent Youth Center in the new Library Community Center. Beyond the Youth center we sponsor and support a number of worthy causes which are on the attached sheet. In 2010 we established Family Support for Ellicottville, which provides needed support for those families who need help from time to time, be it medical or social support. Our Club officially “kicked off” the funding for the Youth Center on June 25, 2004 with a Celebrity Dinner and Golf Tournament and followed it up with a second event in 2005. With the passing of Michael Kerns we decided to dedicate an annual dinner to his memory

Just when I thought I had reached the peak of my summer fun, I found a whole new level to take it to! Yesterday I had the opportunity to fly over our beautiful Enchanted Mountains and Chautauqua Lake with a talented stunt pilot. The pilot’s marvelous stunt plane allowed me a unique view of our region very few folks get to see. And I must admit, I had my eyes open most of the time… As we swirled, twirled, climbed and plummeted through the sky, my brain worked overtime to identify places and landmarks I knew. For as beautiful our region is from the ground, the aerial

You wouldn’t believe the comments I get on my appearance and my voice,” he said. Ford finally decided to give in to what just came naturally. His shows have become a tribute to the celebrated singer with performances of Cash hits like “Folsom Prison Blues” and “Jackson.” The band also features tribute artist Laura Lucy on vocals as June Carter, Sten Isachsen on lead guitar, Mitch Throop on standup bass, Peter Maine on drums and Les Wheeler on rhythm guitar.   Ribfest Also Featuring: KidZone - Take the whole family out to enjoy Allegany Rockin’ Ribfest!

Architectural Digest A Downtown Diamond

Story and photos By John Thomas Staff Writer Rare is the gem that has everything you are looking for: large rooms, great location, a large yard, and the kind of old world charm that only a vintage house can provide. This house has all that and more. Located in the downtown of Ellicottville this century old home has been beautifully preserved and upgraded over the years. The

original wood floors are intact and still maintain their original luster. The kitchen was upgraded some years ago with new cabinets, counters and appliances. The front living room is adorned with large windows and a brick wood burning fireplace. In keeping with turn of the century home design, the ceilings throughout the main floor all are about nine feet high. The den, study and other rooms still maintain their original wood cabinetry. Also on the main floor is a bedroom,

Around the back is a separate outdoor room with barbeque and room for a picnic table and outdoor furniture. A two car heated attached garage completes home. No diamond in the rough, this home is located in a quiet neighborhood of equally impressive homes. Furthermore, it’s only a few steps to downtown Ellicottville with fine dining and great shops. Add in the year round pleasures of golf, skiing, and the new Sky High Adventure Park at Holiday Valley, and you have a true gem. For more information contact David A. Blanchard GRI Assoc.

The Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts at St. Bonaventure University, in conjunction with The Ink Well in Allegany, is offering a four-day summer art camp for children ages 6 to 11. The camp, Hidden Treasures, will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Aug. 6 through 9 or Aug. 13 through 16. Mornings will be spent in and around the Set on a large corner lot this home is only a few steps to downtown Ellicottville. Note Quick Center on campus, with afternoon activities taking the gabled roof line. place at the Ink Well. Children will walk from campus to the Ink Well each day, stopping on the Allegheny River Valley Trail along the way to enjoy their own bagged lunch. On Thursday, the camp’s last day, they will be treated to a pizza party. Students will explore the Pictured Left To Right: 1) The dining room maintains its handsome original flooring. hidden wonders of art each The chandelier and the large windows create a link to the past. 2) At the end of the large morning and create their own marvels at The Ink Well in the backyard is this outdoor room with a barbeque pit and room for outdoor living. afternoon. “Art is everywhere, and each day, students will reveal these hidden wonders, finding

treasures in daily adventures on the university campus, surrounding areas, on nature walks, and on our daily picnics,” said Evelyn Sabina, curator of education at The Quick Center. “We’ll help them develop an appreciation and understanding of the world through art education.” Students will discover places normally unseen and learn more about the rich heritage of the Southern Tier, said Sabina. They will travel a secret stairway to discover a collection of rare and ancient books, learn about the unique architecture in Allegany and on St. Bonaventure’s campus, meet local artists, reveal the secret messages hidden in special artworks, and go behind the scenes at the Quick Center art galleries.   Their afternoon art projects will include printmaking, impressionist sponge painting and foam board architecture. In addition, all students will leave the camp with a specially

created book of their own design. Ink Well owner Melissa Meyers said the only thing children need to bring with them is “their imaginations.” Students should come prepared for activities outside and dress for each day’s weather forecast. While they will not be taken outdoors in a thunderstorm, they may venture out in a light rain or in cool weather, said Sabina.   Parents will drop off their children at The Quick Center in the morning and pick them up at The Ink Well in the afternoon. If weather conditions make a walk ill-advised, campers will remain at The Quick Center throughout the day.   The cost for the Hidden Treasures summer camp is $119. Scholarships are available for qualifying residents.     To register or for more information about the camp, visit The Ink Well at 51 E. Main St., Allegany, or call the shop at 373-0326.

My name is Sharon Saporito and I need your help!

Hi, My name is Sharon Saporito and I am in need of a kidney due to PKD. I was currently preparing for my transplant when it was discovered that my blood had developed an antibody. I was devastated. The team then tested the remaining three donors and found they also were no longer compatible. I never thought I would be in this position since I had so much support from friends and family. I went from having four possible donors to none. It has been a heart breaking situation to say the least. I am in excellent health except for my kidneys. I am blood type B and could receive a kidney from a B or O blood type. An exchange, I am sure would be possible. Please contact me if you can be of help! 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.

7th Annual Willow Creek Triathlon at Allegany State Park for Veterans

The 7th Annual Willow Creek Triathlon, benefiting Disabled American Veterans, will be held on August 4th, 2012 at Allegany State Park. 2011 title sponsors of the event were Northwest Savings Bank, Zippo/Case, Dresser Piping Specialties. The purpose of the event is to raise money for the Disabled American Veterans Transportation Network. The money raised is used to purchase and maintain vans providing transportation of Vets to and from VA hospitals and clinics. The money donated to the Triathlon stays within the local area, being evenly divided between the McKean and Warren County DAV Chapters. This triathlon is run on one of the most scenic routes in the area. The event begins in Allegany State Park in New York at the Quaker Lake beach house. Quaker Lake is a manmade lake covering 268 acres. The lake is ~40 feet deep and has a 3.8 mile undeveloped shoreline. A blessing is offered for the race participants, event organizers, support teams and spectators. Participants are roughly divided into age groups for the start of the race, with our strongest competitors entering the water first. Swimmers will  enter the water at 5-second intervals. As the morning mist rises off the water, participants splash into Quaker Lake, swim around the lifeguard dock and back to the beach for a total of 300 yards. Once out of the water, the racer crosses the timing pad and run through the beach house to their bikes, beginning the 15mile race to the Corydon Hotel.  The bike route loops around the north end of Quaker Lake and back to route 28-, through the Allegany State Park and then around the Allegheny Reservior.  Totally surrounded by forest, the Allegheny Reservoir is the heart of one of the largest and most popular

outdoor recreation complexes in the northeastern United States. With mile markers along the way, participants will weave through the forest to Giordano’s New Corydon Hotel.  Bikers dismount at the Hotel and put on their running shoes and head for the Willows Restaurant, 3 miles up the road.  About one hour after the start, the first place winner crosses the finish line.  Spectators, committee members, family and friends cheer the racers on until the last tri-athlete comes in. The Willows Restaurant venue provides more fun and entertainment with raffles, food, refreshments and a band.  Place finishers are determined by the electronic timing devices provided by Runner’s High.  Awards are given for the winners in the following categories: Top racer. Top 3 overall male and female individuals, top female team, top male team, youngest combined team, oldest combined team and the top in each age group. Age groups are <15 years, 1619, 20-24, 25-29, and so on, at five-year intervals.  The last age group includes triathletes 70 years and older.  For the clydesdale team division, all members of the team must weigh over 200 pounds individually.

budget of $10,000. Not only does the show’s staff work to change the restaurant, but also the lives of its owners and employees in its bid to make the establishment a successful one. Oleander staff referred comment to Food Network officials about the visit, and Food Network officials could not be reached to comment. Irvine has been on various television shows and served as a chef for celebrities, royalty and more before bringing talents to Olean recently. asked us about getting that particular band booked, and this year we were able to pull it off,” she said. “We’re excited to see how many of their followers we bring in.” Bragg also said that the event is sure to have a promising turnout, as both the camping and temporary dock on the marina sold out back in February, before an official date was even set for this year’s event.

Day Trippin’

Near Woodstock, NY

When I was introduced to the raw food diet for the first time I had mixed feelings and wasn’t sure what to expect. I of course have had and prepared some different raw dishes growing up like Mexican chopped salsa, guacamole, pico de gallo, veggie juicing, cauliflower ceviche and salads, but to have an entire meal with nothing cooked and no animal protein whatsoever was different.The first class I took changed the way I looked at foods, specially raw foods,it pretty much changed my life. The first time I took a raw food class was amazing to see that after having 5 courses in a couple of evening hours I felt so good and so light. I Slept great that night and the next morning felt more energized and vibrant. No, it wasn’t my imagination, it was real. Raw foods energize our body and spirit in a very special way. First of all the recipes one can prepare are delicious, that to me and my family is very important. When you make a meal that is 100% nutritious and delicious you have achieved a higher level of nourishing your body. The vibrant flavors and colors you are able to combine are fabulous. Raw foods have much more nutrients and fibers than cooked foods do. The enzymes are active and present, because there

The Beauty of RAW foods

Healthwise is no heat applied. The life force of fresh vegetables, fruits, seeds and nuts is just invaluable. Briggitte Mars author of Rawsome! Says: Raw foods are digested easily and quickly, in 24-36hours as opposed to 48100 hours for cooked food. Your body’s vitality won’t be sapped from breaking down hard-todigest foods. A raw food diet strengthens the immune system, thereby preventing illness and helping you overcome nagging ailments. I love the fact that eating raw meals consistently may help to improve the health of those suffering with inflammatory unbalances like arthritis, asthma, high blood pressure, cancer, diabetes, menstrual problems, digestive ailments, allergies, obesity, psoriasis, skin conditions, heart disease, diverticulitis, weakened immunity, depression and hormonal balance. Brigitte points out that your eyes will become brighter and your voice more clear. Skin and muscle tone will improve. Memory and concentration may become sharper. You will feel better and have more energy. Raw food eating is great for weight loss as well, because you can melt away those extra pounds without being hungry or doing hard to adjust changes. You can maintain your weight optimally for as long as you wish while eating raw. One more thing I like is the fact that you don’t have to use the stove, no gas, no packaging, no pollution, you never have to clean the oven either! Raw foods are living foods, their nutrients and enzymes are intact, more so if they are organic. They may be dehydrated, frozen or fermented, but not heated to a temperature over 110 F. Steamed vegetables are usually cooked at 212F. Unfortunately, many vitamins lose potency at about 130 F. Vitamins A,D,E, and K are destroyed in cooking. Cooking disrupts the structure of indoles, which may have anticancer compounds found in vegetables like broccoli and cabbage. In his book Eating for Beauty, Dave Wolf and advocate of natural health and raw foods, says

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!
