Keeping Ellicottville’s “Quaintness” & Sticking to the Rules By Sharon Turano

Apartments over Tim Horten’s Zoning Board of Appeals members are sharing the concerns of residents that too many buildings being constructed in the town could result in it losing its “quaintness.” The issue was brought up during a Wednesday ZBA meeting after one board member said residents told him they were concerned about too many apartments being built above Tim Horton’s and whether that will result in highway parking if there are not enough spaces at the restaurant. Although some on the board said the apartments were permitted, the issue of whether more is being built in the town than is needed or will

sell, causing the town to lose its character, was discussed. Procedure of Appeal Also discussed during the session was the procedure for zoning board of appeals’ action. The question arose due to a building permit being granted for a facility with a deck out of compliance before the board granted a variance for the project. Meghan Swanson appeared before the board to request approval for a deck for the house her family is having built since the deck is five feet out of compliance. The house, however, is being built at an angle for privacy, resulting See ZBA page 9

Town Board Moves to Town Center

The Town Board held its official meeting in the new Town Center building on Wednesday night. Still smelling of fresh paint the Cooperative Extension has been spruced up with a new entrance hallway. A fresh coat of paint and new ceiling tiles adorn the auditorium. The judges bench and attorney’s tables also been installed in the new courtroom. Board Member Kenny Hinman chaired the

meeting as Supervisor John Burrell is still recovering from a stint in the hospital. Good News Mr. Hinman said that Supervisor Burrell always starts the meeting with good news, and had some of his own. First, he reported that “John is doing a lot better,” and mentioned he had seen Mr. Burrell at home just before the meeting. He mentioned that the plaque and signage for the Jefferson Street Cemetery has been New signs pointing the way to See BOARD page 9

Publisher’s Word

Something Really Great Is Undoubtedly Around The Corner The summer season here in the Enchanted Mountains is just starting to wind down. You can sense this as you walk down the sidewalks of 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

The Rotary Club and Friends of Rotary put on this special event in honor of Michael Kerns, which in turn helps the Ellicottville Community more than most know. In the words of the Rotary District Governor “ I was impressed with the extent of your engagement in both your community and the world at large.” With their two affiliates “The Foundation for Youth” and “Family Support for Ellicottville” Rotary does more than most know. With a core of volunteers they guarantee that 100% of funds raised go to their many local projects.

Monitoring patients when it is not certain that they are having a heart attack to ensure that they are not sent home too quickly or needlessly admitted to the hospital. “This is a wonderful tribute to OGH leadership, physicians and staff who set their sites on SPCP accreditation when we opened the Chest Pain Center four years ago and have worked tirelessly since to continually improve the standard of care,” said Dr.Ahmad Hilal, cardiologist and medical director of the Chest Pain Center at OGH. “We are extremely proud of our physicians, nurses support staff and emergency services providers. Receiving this prestigious accreditation does not happen without their dedication to quality improvement and commitment to saving lives.” “Cattaraugus County has among the highest rates of cardiac disease and cardiacrelated mortality in the state,” Dr. Hilal said. “The region has a high rate of obesity, diabetes and smoking, which all relate to heart problems. Unfortunately people tend to wait when they think they might be having a heart attack, and that’s a mistake,” Dr. Hilal said. “The average person doesn’t

realize that the sooner heart attack symptoms are diagnosed and treated, the better the chance for a good outcome for the patient. Unfortunately many patients wait too long before seeking help after the onset of symptoms,” he said. “The Chest Pain Center is not only focused on improving the standard of care, but community education as well. It is essential that people know how to reduce their risk factors for heart problems and know what to do if they experience chest pain,” Dr. Hilal said. “From the start our vision for Olean General Hospital’s cardiac program has been to create a high quality destination with a depth and breadth of cardiac care that will serve the members of our community throughout their lifetime,” Finan said. “By meeting SCPC’s strict standards and becoming an Accredited Chest Pain Center, OGH has significantly improved the quality of care for our region.” In September heart care in Olean and the surrounding region will take another significant leap forward when Olean General Hospital opens its new stateof-the-art interventional cardiac catheterization laboratory in partnership Kaleida Health’s Gates Vascular Institute in Buffalo. “With the opening of the new lab, patients in the region will have access to cardiac catheterization procedures and interventions to quickly treat coronary artery disease, significantly reducing both time and distance for residents to travel to receive life-saving heart care,” Finan said. “OGH will be the only hospital in Southwestern New York to have this capability.”

Olean General Hospital (OGH) announced today that it has earned accreditation for its Chest Pain Center from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care (SCPC), an international organization dedicated to eliminating heart disease as the number one cause of death worldwide. Olean General Hospital is only the ninth hospital in New York State and the only hospital in Southwestern New York to earn SCPC accreditation. The SCPC accreditation recognizes that Olean General Hospital has achieved a higher level of expertise in dealing with patients who arrive with symptoms of a heart attack. The accreditation also means that OGH meets the Society’s expectations in demonstrating the importance of standardized diagnostic and treatment programs that provide more efficient and effective evaluation, appropriate and rapid treatment of patients with chest pain and other heart attack symptoms. In addition, accreditation recognizes the hospital for promoting a f healthier lifestyle in an attempt s to reduce the risk factors for ; heart attack. y “The entire OGH team has g worked tirelessly to bring our Chest Pain Center to a level of . care unmatched in our region, s focusing on training, education e and processes that ensure s the patients coming to our Emergency Department will receive fast, accurate diagnosis for chest pain in line with the highest standards in the nation,” said Timothy J.

Architectural Spotlight A Cosmopolitan Island

Story and photos By John Thomas Staff Writer Who wouldn’t love a home in the woods? While that may conjure images of a log cabin or a “rustic fixer-upper”, this home defies the country home stereotype. This 2007 custom build is solid, modern, and sophisticated. Set on a cleared wooded hillside, with a scenic view, this home would blend well with any up scale suburb. Based on an open floor plan, the great room has a vaulted ceiling matched by a two-story bank of windows. They create a corner for the home and the deck that wraps around three sides of the home. Sliding glass doors

provide access this deck and the awesome view. On the left wall of the great room is a gas two-sided fireplace with a field stone hearth. In the gourmet kitchen grey counter tops tie together the stainless steel appliances, including the six burner Bertazzoni convection and pastry oven. A center island provides extra counter space and a breakfast bar. The walk-in pantry elevates this kitchen to a nearly professional workspace. The dining area just off the kitchen provides space for a huge dining table. Another sliding glass door goes out to the deck. On the opposite side of the great room is the master suite. It is warmed by the same see through fireplace

that is in the great room, a very contemporary detail. There is a sliding glass door to the deck here as well. Downstairs is anchored by the large game room with the entertainment center. Off it are two more bedrooms and another full bath. Two sliding glass doors go out to the patio, shaded by the deck overhead. Altogether the home has four bedrooms and three baths. The home is being offered mostly furnished. Hardly a “fixer-upper”, this home offers the best of contemporary styling and modern comfort. Located on five plus acre on the edge of a forest and it’s only a few minutes from downtown Ellicottville; a grand combination of city and country life. For more information about this home contact Tina Dillon, GRI Licensed Sales Associate at (Pictured Top, left to right) 1. The vaulted room over the great room makes for a dramatic ERA Team VP Real Estate at peaked roof over the deck. The patio can be seen below. 2. The dining room sports a huge dining table.

The highlight of our last weekend in August will be, TheVoodoo Lounge Party, a tribute honoring the memory of Michael Kerns senior.

Tickets are available at $65.00 each at The Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce office, Evl Sprits, The Inn at Holiday Valley or by calling Kegs at 716 699 8758.

Back To School

CCB Sponsors “Back To School Supply Drive”

The America’s Promise team at CCB (Cattaraugus County Bank) is holding a “Back To School Supply Drive” throughout the month of August 2013. The drive is intended to provide area school children with supplies they may need, but cannot afford. Items needed include: Pens, pencils, loose leaf paper, pocket folders, glue sticks, colored pencils, crayons, spiral notebooks, highlighters, liquid glue, construction paper, scissors, erasers, poster board, scotch tape, stickers, wide ruled paper, composition notebooks…. Even book bags, tissues and lunch boxes will be accepted. The national symbol for America’s Promise, a red

wagon, will be displayed in each location through the end of August as a drop-off location. CCB will distribute the supplies to local schools after they are in session in September. “This is what we do as part of the America’s Promise commitment; we help children,” states America’s Promise Team Chair Mary Jo Woodarek. “There are so many children that need these items to enhance their learning experience. CCB is pleased to offer area schools help in this way. Please look for the wagon and donate supplies. Without the proper school supplies, some children may not have the same opportunity others enjoy.” “America’s Promise” members

Olivia Venezia—future 11th grader of Ellicottville School— was announced the winner of the Teen Hunger Games writing completion of Chautauqua and Cattaraugus Counties. Ten participants competed who were affiliated with the county library system. The authors submitted short works of fiction over four weeks of writing. A trophy—which was made by students of the Patterson Library (Westfield), honors throughout the District of Ellicottville School, along with publications of winning submissions, were some of the top prizes awarded. Olivia received praise from association with the Ellicottville Memorial Library. Laura Flanagan, director of the Ellicottville Memorial Library, comments on the event: “Thirty four libraries were notified of the event. As in the real Hunger Games (of both the film and novel), there is only one winner, (where the tributes fight to the death with only one survivor remaining). Olivia will also be awarded with a $25 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble.” The submission began on July 3, 2013 and the final results were posted July 29, 2013. The rules were as follows: Participants must submit fictional prose only, inclusive of one, five-page (maximum) submission per week. The competition was open to teens from thirteen to eighteen years of age, and voters submitted

their two favorite writers each week. I had a chance to speak with Olivia last weekend and she commented on her many artistic talents in the field of art and writing. She submitted the following stories throughout the four-week competition: ‘The cycles of you, Patterns we all follow, Patterns and Cycles, and You (the story that won the competition).’ “I would classify my genre of fiction as a statistical stream of consciousness which is focused upon, on young adult. I let my stories pull together and I base them on thoughts from the main characters, versus actual events.” Olivia aspires to have a career in animation after schooling. She adds, “That is my main goal, however I may develop plans of creative writing on the side.” When asked what novels or stories gave her inspiration for her writing, Olivia said, “I find myself liking a very strange number of books, and literature. While I can’t place favoritism on a specific genre, I really enjoy ones that make you think. Some of my favorites are— which I’m sure have in some ways shaped my thinking— ‘Nothing’ by Jane Teller, ‘Tales of The Madmen Underground’ by John Barnes, and ‘Fight Club’, by Chuck Palahniuk. Of all the books, and many others that line the shelves of my home, I learn how repetition, short paragraphs and wording can affect the reader and I try to use these elements in as many of my pieces.” Olivia also has a taste for the arts as well. “My favorite mediums would have to be pencil, ink, marker, watercolor, and digital medium. The latter, is how I do the majority of my art.  I use, Mechanical Pencils, Ballpoint pens, Sharpies, Prism color (a combination of markers and colored pencils), Copic Markers, or any watercolors I can get my hands on. As for digital media, I use a Wacom Bambo Pen Tablet, and the Paint Tool Sai for software usage.”

Olivia’s style of art and writing is unique. “I write in two different styles, one in a loose more poetic novel form, where I can throw in a high amount of emotion, descriptions and make something really pretty. On the other hand some of my writing has a heavy satirical voice, and can come off as opinionated. This voice is more relative to my non-fiction writing and essays. As for my art, I draw many animals, because they are fun to sketch and it just comes naturally. I prefer a style of heavy, bold lines with soft color as I tend to draw in a ‘cartoonish’ style.’ I believe that is what interests me the most.” Venezia also discussed her thoughts about the competition itself and what the event means for the county libraries. “This was a great contest for the youth of the area; it really showcased the creative talent of young people in the town who frequent the libraries. When I say talent, I do mean it. It was a tough competition, and there were many talented writers with great ideas. It is amazing how this young group of people can write better than some of the older generations. I wish more people would have both entered and voted.  It would have been more interesting to have more readers; since I think a large majority of voters were consisted of friends and family, as this is normal with every contest. In addition, this contest highly benefits the library, because they get recognition, I won this year and there is a very nice trophy at the Ellicottvilleo Memorial Library. I believe thes library’s themselves really needo to keep getting  young peopleN in the doors; it’s dishearteninga to find only ten students hadF entered, but I believe that moret people will join next year.” H A collage of Olivia’sn artwork can be seen on www.r critterdrawsstuff.tumblr.com,s and a few of her stories (thato were apart of the hunger gameC reading event) can be foundw on www.teenhungergames.w weebly.com/read-and-vote.t html.

Hike

no bikes, horses or motorized vehicles.  Whether you are looking for some relatively easy, interesting hikes that appeal to hikers of all ages and abilities or more advanced technical trails Ellicottville and the surrounding areas can provide the experience that is perfect for you.  Other great local trails include: Pat McGee Trail - This multi-purpose trail will grow to be a county-wide system but at this time it connects the Village of Cattaraugus to the City of Salamanca. You can hike, bike, snowmobile or ride horse on the Pat McGee Trail. Allegheny River Valley Trail - Hundreds of people use this trail that surrounds the City of Olean and the Village of Allegany every day! The Conservation Trail/Finger Lakes Trail - White Blazes - This hiking trail begins in Allegany State Park and runs to Fancy Tract, near Machias. This trail has strenuous climbs and elevations range from 1,300 to 2,300 feet. Conservation Trail - Orange Blazes - This hiking trail runs north from the Conservation/

Finger Lakes Trail junction to Cattaraugus Creek. This trail is moderately difficult with elevation ranging from 1,230 to 1,920 feet. Finger Lakes Trail - White Blazes - This hiking trail continues east from the Conservation/Finger Lakes Trail junction to the County border. This trail is moderately difficult with a peak elevation of 2,078 feet. Information: Conservation Trail - This trail is unique in that for 55 miles from the Pennsylvania border to near Fancy Tract, it is used as the main Finger Lakes Trial. It moves north another 80 miles to Akron Falls Park Finger Lakes Trail System - this system consists of the Finger Lakes Trail beginning at the Pennsylvania border and runs 500 miles east to the Long Path in the Catskills. This trail is marked with white blazes on trees and posts, and identifier discs. This system also has 200 miles of branch trails. These are marked in the same manner except the color is orange. Side trails are marked in blue. Double blazes are used to mark turns or conditions of the trail.

said, two decks would be built to remain in compliance if a variance was not granted. Board members voiced Cont. From Cover concern rules are on the books in the variance being needed. for reasons, and, therefore, Without the deck, it could houses should be built with the meet zoning code, and, she allowed building envelope. The

rules, they noted, are put on the books to protect neighbors. After further discussion, however, they said two decks may impact the neighbors more. They approved the deck, as long as no trees are removed from the property.

Cont. From Cover also has six branch trails and 29 loop and spur trails that extend from the main FLT. These trails offer another 400 miles of hiking bringing the total length of the Finger Lake Trail System to over 958 miles of hiking....pretty amazing and the trail goes right through Ellicottville!  Visit the Finger Lake Trail Conference website here for an interactive map and more information about the FLT.   If you are looking for a more casual hike with some incredible scenery, Little Rock City is a natural outcrop of conglomerate rock on an unglaciated plateau that the whole family will marvel over. There is one trail that goes through the rock formations of Little Rock City and it can be accessed from the end of the turn around loop on Little Rock City Forest Road.  This trial is only open to hikers...

Cont. From Cover

ordered and should be here in six weeks. Hinman reported on a discussion John had with National Fuel. Instead of abandoning the gas lines on Fancy Tract and Canada Hill, they are going to repair them. He said this would be good news for the residents of those roads, as they will keep gas service, and won’t have to go on propane. Inmates from the Collins Correctional Facility will be spending eight days working on the landscaping at the Arboretum. Supervisors Report The Supervisors 2013 Financial Report was accepted as submitted. There were general positive comments that Town Center was ‘looking nice.” Hinman reported that they are working on installing the new phone and Internet lines. He said the cost for the service would remain about the same. He said also that insurance costs would be about the same as before. Hinman said the Village had been kind enough to put up the new signs on Maples and Park Side indicating the new Town Center. The department reports were accepted as

submitted. Officer in Charge Don Auge, the Officer in Charge, reported on five or six meetings he has had with the Village Special Event committee, two bar owners, and other law agencies regarding Fall Festival. He said the two bars that sponsor tents for the festival have been very cooperative in trying to establish a plan to avoid some of last year’s trouble. He said the plan is a “big step forward for everybody.” Live music in the tents will stop at 11:00pm, recorded music until 12:00pm, and the tents will close at 1:00pm. He said he will be meeting with the other village bar owners, and this year will have zero tolerance for noise and open container laws. He mentioned that this year the county sheriffs department will be submitting a bill for their help during Fall Festival. Last year the county had used some grant money to assist the town for free, but this year they do not have the grant. Highway Department Dave Golly reported his department has been doing their usual maintenance of the roads. He said the new radios have been installed in the trucks and they are “really nice.” He reported that the final work on the town’s DPW building is going well. The electrical and lighting is pretty

much done, and the power washer is up and running. Engineers Report Mark Alianellio reported he had met with the owner of the property chosen to house the East Tank Project. The owner has suggested a different part of his property for the water tank. The new location would require more pipes to tie the tank into the water supply, but would need a shorter road, and installation would not require crossing any wetlands. Alianellio said he is looking a various pipeline configurations considering: the tank, Tim Horton’s, the Glen Burn project, and Morningstar. He has to run some computer models, but thinks the new location could save the town some money. The engineer reported the company that did the flood plain study has responded to some questions FEMA had regarding what is happening with Morning Star Estates, which was indicated on the map. There have been discussions with the Planning Board about construction hours at the Glen Burn Trail project. Apparently there have been complaints from the neighbors about construction noise very early in the morning. At this point the board went into executive session to discuss the resignation of Judge Kerns. The public meeting was adjourned.

Grant Received

Botanical Gardens Recieves Grant From Buffalo Bills Youth Foundation

For the second year in a row, the Buffalo Bills Youth Foundation will fund a portion of the Plant Pals program at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens with a grant of $2,500. This grant will provide 220-second graders in the Buffalo Public Schools with a unique field trip to the Botanical Gardens to experience hands-on lessons about the plants we eat and good nutritional practices. “The Buffalo Bills are proud to support the youth in the Western New York community and assist in providing them with opportunities to become better educated and more physically fit through our 2013 Youth Foundation’s grant program,” said Ralph Wilson, Jr., Bills Owner.” Created in 2011 with a grant from the Margaret Whitehead Foundation, Plant Pals is aligned

to the New York State Standards for Science and provides lessons for second graders in the Buffalo Public Schools at no cost. These students experience lessons on vegetables, fruits and grains and start to build an understanding of the plants we eat and the biology behind those plants. Additionally, students gain knowledge of proper nutritional practices and an appreciation for how plants are essential for our physical and mental well-being. Plant Pals also addresses the epidemic of childhood obesity by providing students with the opportunity to learn about proper nutrition through a hands-on educational experience. Schools play a critical role in helping to encourage healthy behaviors and Plant Pals program introduces second graders to plant life, and paves the way for

the Project Empower program at the Botanical Gardens, targeted to third graders in the Buffalo Public Schools. The ultimate goal is to prepare students for fourth grade science lessons that lead up to the New York State Science Assessment Test. Established in 1986 by the Buffalo Bills, the Buffalo Bills Youth Foundation (BBYF) is a not-for-profit organization that primarily supports charitable organizations that emphasize improving the quality of life for youth in Western New York. Nearly 200 thousand dollars in grants were awarded in 2013, and over three million dollars in grants have been awarded since the BBYF’s inception. For more information on the Buffalo Bills Youth Foundation or the Bills in the Community, please visit buffalobills.com or call 716648-1800.

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!
