8 Hughey Alley Ellicottville, NY - 716-699-4672 This Saturday August 25th, Starting at 7:00 “HINTZ OF THUNDER”

The late Michael Kerns was a much-loved, local business owner and philanthropist whose impact on the community is still being felt four years after his passing. Many knew him as the former owner of Balloons restaurant and many more benefited and continue to benefit from his contributions to the Ellicottville Library and various youth programs. The organizer of the Voodoo Moon charitable event, Greg Cappelli, alluded that the true breadth and depth of Mr. Kern’s generosity may never really become public knowledge for the simple fact that he wasn’t interested in laurels or praise, as deserving as they may have been. The Rotary Club of Ellicottville Foundation for Youth aims to honor that selfless spirit and keep the tradition of giving alive this weekend with its annual fundraising party. A good time for a good cause it is. Mr. Cappelli will be the first to tell you that this event doesn’t need praise either; it sells itself because it is in a word, fun. Since its inception this event has quickly garnered a reputation as an upscale but casual must-do and don’t-miss. The New Orleans/Cajun theme will include top-notch cuisine from local dining establishments such as Cajun Crab Cakes from Tips Up, Cajun Catfish from Myer’s Steak House and The Silver Fox’s Shrimp Etoufe. The host will provide the jambalaya and traditional crawfish boil and Watson’s promises a sweet desert table. That’s just to name a few of the culinary delights that will be on hand so leave your diet at home. The Creole tunes will come from the Blue Sky Mission Club who will start playing right when the doors open. In addition to the great music and food, there will be a cash bar, Silent and Live Auctions and Door Prizes. The party starts at 6:00pm this Saturday and goes until whenever. Tickets are $65.00 per head and can be obtained in advance by calling Kegs Keeighly at (716) 699-8758. You can also obtain tickets through local bars and restaurants or the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce. Further information can be had by contacting Greg Cappelli at (716) 699-5626. All proceeds go to the Rotary Club of Ellicottville Foundation for Youth, which is a 501C3 organization (the cost of admission is tax deductible). In short, the mountain bayou awaits so come up and do that voodoo that you do so well! - By Paul Royer

New HV Chalet Coming Along New Lodge on Schedule to Open December 15

By John Thomas - Staff Writer When Holiday Valley announced the schedule for the demolition of the old lodge and construction of the new one it seemed optimistic, even audacious to some people. When you think about completely demolishing the old structure in March and building a new three story lodge in its place by mid December it seems nearly impossible. Yet, according to Jane Eshbaugh of

Holiday Valley that is precisely what they are doing. She says it started over two years ago with “pre-construction planning to have the most efficient demolition, timing the supply of materials, scheduling the contractors, dovetailing work in different parts of the building and an experienced and dedicated General Contractor, Duggan and Duggan.” Ms. Eshbaugh admits that they lucked out with the early the Spring and dry Summer, allowing

construction to go on uninterrupted. Once finished most of the faculties inside will feel the same as before. McCarty Cafe will return with the same cozy feel, but improved customer circulation. The rental and High Performance shops will be new, and the locker space will be increased. Also new in the lodge will be a “cafeteria called the Mountainside See CHALET page 9

the village and feel a certain crispness in the morning air. It’s a sign – a sign of the wonderful change coming very soon, whether you’re ready for it or not. As for me, I just love the on-set of autumn in the Southern Tier. Everyone will continue the summer traditions of golfing, barbequing, and relaxing with a good glass of wine while watching the glorious sunsets. But late August can bring cool mornings and cooler nights – “great sleeping weather”, my mother always says. Short sleeves and shorts give way to sweaters and jeans. And the summer hustle and bustle, (it’s such a short season – we simply must cram in as much

fun as we possibly can), starts to sputter a bit, largely evident during the quiet weekdays. It’s truly one of my favorite times of the year – this “shouldertime” between summer and fall. Well, the change in seasons is inevitable, but we’ll scarcely have time to notice – there’s still sometime left of fun in the sun, and I’m planning on taking every advantage of living in such a wonderful place. So, dear readers – keep an eye on the horizon but live for today and tomorrow. With a happy, upbeat attitude, you just never know – something really great is undoubtedly in store for you! Until next week… JZ

Letter To The Editor Thank You Centurions!

It is exciting to see Ellicottville “leading the pack” of community events. Offering new opportunities for others to discover our Village and Town, For locals to come together and take pride in their hometown and surrounding areas. Many of the people here this past weekend were first timers. They were impressed by how the event was organized, what our area has to offer, and how incredibly accommodating our Village and Town can be. The Centurion staff and volunteers greeted them with big smiles, open hearts and positive attitudes.

The comments from our visitors were amazing! They will return, not only for future races but to explore our area, visit and support our local business’, bring their friends and families.  All of which is great for Ellicottville’s “Big Picture”, the growth, and quality of life in the place we call “home”. The Centurion Event provided local organizations the opportunity to raise funds thru volunteer participation. Those that helped out had a blast and are making plans for next time. All of this supports our small community of “full timers”.

What a wonderful weekend, hats off to all! The Centurion Staff, the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce, Doug Bush and his local committees. All the Law Enforcement, EMS, DPW agencies. The volunteers, race participants, spectators and helpful locals. If Ellicottville is fortunate enough to host this event again next year, embrace it!  Be part of the big picture, in living color. Participate, volunteer, and welcome our visitors.  They may end up becoming a good customer, a new neighbor, a great friend! - Patra Lowes

Four kids could sleep up here comfortably. Back down on the main floor there is plenty of space for the entertainment center. The dining area is marked by the chandelier and a high dining table. Next to that is the breakfast bar with a pass through to the kitchen. Its wood cabinets match the pine walls. A green countertop give you lots of working space, and the twin sinks are under the kitchen window; in front of which is a Tiffany style lamp. Around the corner is the bathroom that

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!

Inside Business Track Rover Makeover’s

Wagner said that a typical grooming at Rover Makeovers includes a comb, bath, shave, nail trimming and ear cleaning. They even offer flea treatments, if needed.

By Janae Butler Not many people say that they get to go into work everyday into a unique job and setting, but for Teresa Wagner of Ellicottville, she can say the exact opposite. Wagner, owner of “Rover Makeovers,” located at 16 Elizabeth Street in Ellicottville and a native to the city, is a daily pet groomer who owns her own grooming service. She opened Rover Makeovers in 2009, after taking online classes and working with a groomer for a few years prior to that. “I just love animals,” she said. “It’s a really fun job to go into everyday.” Wagner said that in addition to grooming the typical dogs and cats, she has also groomed even guinea pigs and rabbits in the past. Wagner said that a typical grooming at Rover Makeovers includes a comb, bath, shave, nail trimming and ear cleaning. They even offer flea treatments, if needed. Wagner said that it’s ideal for animals to get groomed every 6 to 8 weeks. At Rover Makeovers, Wagner

said the appointments are set up so that only one animal at a time is being taken care of. “We do it that way so that the animals aren’t distracted by others animals that may be around if we were to take more than one appointment at a time.” Wagner said that the owners of the pets being groomed are also welcome to stay while they’re being groomed; and in most cases, it’s encouraged. “The pets are usually a lot more comfortable when their owners are there to watch over,” she said. Wagner said that her business is steady and booming, as there are always people in the town who need their pets groomed. “Sometimes, people may be from out of the area and still stop in when they’re in town,” she said. “But for the most part, all our customers are local.” Wagner said that business is the busiest in the spring, as lots of owners bring their pets in to get their summer coats removed. Wagner said that the winter, specifically the month of January, is their slowest time.

Wagner said that being a professional dog groomer is very rewarding. “It’s great to see both the pets and their owners happy after they’re groomed,” she said. Wagner, who owns 2 dogs and 2 cats herself, said she knows how important it is to have a happy, healthy and groomed animal. Wagner said that another perk of her job is being able to be familiar with most of the pets in town. “I feel like I know and have seen almost every dog in town,” she said. Wagner’s advice to those looking to go into the pet grooming business is to make sure you’re a legitimate animal lover. “You really have to love and be passionate about animals because you spend a lot of time with them,” she said. “You also have to be comfortable with them and not be afraid to get a little dirty; my job isn’t the cleanest one, but it’s still rewarding nonetheless.” To learn more about Teresa and Rover Makeovers or to make an appointment for your beloved pet, call them at (716) 6998345.

symptoms for the victim. The test that could save thousands of lives, but doctors won’t order the test or insurance companies pay for it unless the person has already had cancer. If the blood test was made part of a persons annual check-up thousands of cancers could be detected long before they became a problem. J. (Julie) Carry Moccasin is working to establish the Western Door Community Development Corporation. The money raised will help establish Western Door, obtain grants, and establish a web site. “Everything is ready. We have our by-laws in place,” says Julie who will be president of the corporation. Once established the goal of the organization will be to lobby Washington to enact legislation to make the CA125 test an automatic part of everyone’s annual physical. This simple change could save thousands of live per year. For Ms. Moccasin this

challenge is a deeply personal one. It began on April 12 over year ago when she assumed some abdominal pain was a cramp. But as the day went on the pain didn’t go away. Finally she asked her daughter to take her to emergency. A CT scan revealed a mass in her abdomen, but it wasn’t until she got to Roswell Park that the cancer was confirmed. Three weeks later she underwent surgery where doctors removed a three pound mass of ovarian cancer. She had no history of cancer, so the CA125 test was never administered, and her cancer went undetected for years. After surgery she suffered through chemotherapy and is now in remission. With the founding of Western Door Community Development Corporation, Ms. Moccasin is going to make sure that in the future, this vital test will be a regular part of heath care.

Stories” tour, in which Adkins honors ordinary people doing extraordinary things. To quote Adkins, “A lot of people get attention for the wrong reasons, but the true measure of a hero is serving others. On Great American Heroes, I will introduce the real people who fit that bill. They devote themselves to others and deserve all the applause they can get. These heroes will inspire you, make your heart swell and your eyes tear up. This show does more than tell some good stories, it affirms our faith in others.” Episodes of Great American Heroes will re-air on Sundays at 8 p.m. (Eastern Time) following the August 22nd premier. The

program will highlight heroes in ten communities across the country. The summer wildfires wreaking havoc throughout the west have affected the Trace Adkins tour. He had to cancel a concert scheduled recently for Cle Elum, Washington. Adkins said, “I cannot in good conscience stage a concert while the community is under such strain…I know all too well what residents are feeling as they evacuate their homes.” Tickets for the Trace Adkins concert at the Seneca Allegany Events Center start at $65. All ages are welcome, but anyone under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

to sell. Improved services and amenities: Easier access to the slopes with improved circulation and flow of traffic without having to use exterior stairways.” Originally the plans called for moving the daycare into a temporary facility, but as construction has continued, the daycare remained in the same building. The daycare will move into the new lodge when it opens December 15. According to Jane, “The new location will make it easier for children to access the slopes for lessons that include day care. There is space for up to 48 children on weekends. The old Day Care will be demolished and the area will become a multiple use plaza.” The construction has had little impact on golf or the other

Holiday Valley facilities. With McCarty Cafe not available for the golfers mid-game snack, the food was moved to a chalet closer to the course. The change has helped maintain the pace of play. “The Golf shop and all holes remain the same, as does the Cabana Bar and pools.” By the time of the grand opening December 15, Holiday Valley will have pulled off something of a minor miracle; a Phoenix like rising from the ashes that will create a new lodge on a par “or even better than Yodeler.” It will be a testament to the skills of dozens of people: Holiday Valley management, general contractors, sub-contractors, and laborers, to bring a so large project in on time. As Ms. Eshbaugh says, “We are very conscious of keeping on task.”

some menus and do a mock or pretend sit down at the restaurant. We can make great choices that we can enjoy but at the same time will be really helpful for us.” Williams believes that restaurant customers should advocate for themselves in terms of what they request at the restaurant for their meal. Williams say their program differs from other weight management programs in that it really focuses on the individual. Often people are a given general or blanket recommendation like “Eat cabbage every single day for a meal” or “You should never eat before 6 a.m.” Williams notes that this is not appropriate for different situations, where someone might to lower cholesterol, while another person might want to slim down for a wedding or someone works a third shift. “Those are entirely different needs. So we look at the individuals in the program and focus on where they are now and want to be and help lead them to success in that regard.” Fay says “On Your Weigh to Good Health” is a six week program that runs for two hours every Tuesday evening from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. “Mike really listens to everyone attending the program and makes sure he is addressing their needs.” If a person who eats out often, he will address that. If they are trying to learn to cook at home,

he addresses cooking skills and how to prepare a healthy meal at home. Fay says all of the feedback from the program has been “absolutely wonderful.” She notes that Williams also addresses whether the people have children or grandchildren in the family because, “There is no magic food in this. This is healthy eating for the whole family, and it’s a wonderful program that he (Mike Williams) has put together.” Fay notes that interested individuals should check their own insurance programs, since many of the plans are beginning to cover weight management programs. “That’s because obesity and diabetes caused by obesity is such an epidemic and is very costly to the insurance companies and the person.” Obesity also causes other costly/debilitating diseases such as sleep apnea, arthritis, heart disease, cancers such as esophageal, breast and colon. We are very pleased that Blue Cross of WNY pays 100% of the fee. The next series of classes starts September 11th. Anyone with questions about the program should call 716-375-6270 or 375-6083. To sign up, call Olean General Hospital central scheduling at 716-375-6401. Classes are held at the main hospital building, 515 Main Street in Olean, in the first floor education center.

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!
