Greater Olean Sports Show This Weekend in Allegany By Nicholas Pircio 95.7 FM, WPIG

Just because it isn’t snowing does not mean you can’t enjoy winter. You don’t even have to go outside! With warmer temperatures interrupting our periodic if brief arctic blasts, why not take advantage of the weather by paying a visit to the Greater Olean Outdoor and Recreation Sports Show, January 28th and 29th. Be sure to note the location. The event will take place at the Daniel Carter Events Center, 2383 West Five Mile Road Extension in Allegany, just off Route 86 at the Allegany exit (24). Meme Yanetsko, the Chief Operating Officer at the Greater Olean Area

Chamber of Commerce, likes the mid-winter date. This year’s event marks the third such sports show, but the first time it will be held in January, rather than September. There was no sports show last year. And it used to be held at the William O. Smith Recreation Center, near Bradner Stadium. So why do the move? Yanetsko said it was a great location because of the park and parking facilities, but timing did not work well for the vendors. She noted, “Charters were still out on the water, and a lot of the outfitters weren’t gearing up yet. This year, knock on wood, we’re looking pretty good.” It should also be noted that Bradford will not be hosting a similar exhibition this year. The Chamber sought out a different location for the outdoor sports show See SHOW page 15

of banked turns and rollers, while the lower portion features medium sized boxes, rails and double jumps. These two events feature head-tohead completion through S turns, over jumps and around gates, and will feature two races a day and are part of the USASA regional qualifying contest. All of the events require a USASA membership to participate, and contestants must

wear helmets during the events. The WNY Series began January 14 at HoliMont Ski Resort, and Holiday Valley hosted a slalom race on Jan. 15. Holiday Valley will also host slopestyle events on Feb. 11 and 12, and the series will also feature slopestyle and rail jam events at See USASA page 15

Publisher’s Word A Mid-Winter Warm Up

This time of year, an integral part of the whole Ellicottville package is the Apres ski activity. I’m referring, of course, to the restaurants and pubs we all love to visit after a long day on the slopes. If you’ve ever been to one of our fine clubs on a busy weekend, you know things can get pretty hectic! Patrons will line up three-deep to the bar waiting not-so-patiently for their favorite libation. Crowds form around the serving station, making life pretty difficult for the poor cocktail waitress who dances her way through the crowd with tray held aloft, rarely spilling a precious drop. These customer service experts do as much for Ellicottville’s reputation as the conditions at the two ski areas. The effort they extend each and every night

is lost on most customers; they make their jobs look easy – fun, even. But to be a professional bartender you need to know more than how to memorize your clients’ favorite drink recipes. You need to know proper techniques, how to interact with customers, handle difficult situations, operate cash registers, maintain beer and soda systems, and (most importantly) how to serve alcohol responsibly. So, dear readers, the next time you stop in to your favorite spot to have a sip, take a moment to appreciate the skill and motivation these good-hearted folks put out there for you. Twenty percent for a tip is the least you can do – smiling back and thanking them is just as important. Until next week Jeanine Zimmer

Parking Ban in Ellicottville Winter Parking Requirements from December 1 - March 31

Local Artist Selected

Fitzpatrick Selected for “Women Create” Exhibit in Jamestown

Ellicottville artist Karen Fitzpatrick’s stained glass window “Breakout” is among the selections for Women Create, the first juried exhibit of women’s art at the new 3rd On 3rd Gallery in downtown Jamestown, New York. Pictured here, the stained glass work will on display from February 11 through March 31.

JAMESTOWN, NY – Ellicottville artist Karen Fitzpatrick’s stained glass window “Breakout” is among the selections for Women Create, the first juried exhibit of women’s art at the new 3rd On 3rd Gallery in downtown Jamestown, New York.   With the February 11-March 31 show created to feature the work of local and regional women, the preponderance of artists come from throughout western New York. Fitzpatrick is the only Ellicottville artist to be included.   Women Create will display

a wide range of art and fine crafts in a variety of media.   A self-taught artist, Fitzpatrick’s interest began with an introduction to stained glass class at Discover Ellicottville in 2003. After a subsequent class in 2006, with trial and error and much experimentation, she completed her first stained glass window for her music room in 2007.   Since then, Fitzpatrick has participated in a number of arts show, primarily in Cattaraugus County where she is a member of the Cattaraugus County

Arts Council. In her application for the show, Fitzpatrick noted, “My background does not include a formal education in art…… rather, music.  Several of my designs are an interpretation of a song or lyric. After cutting and assembling an actual patterned panel, a new composition often emerges from improvisation with the remaining glass.” She concluded, “My observation: there is no fixed consensus about the nature and essence of art. The concepts of art are defined and redefined by the art world….To all of you who create with heart and dedication!  There’s nothing like it!  It really can feed your soul.”   Women Create’s opening reception will be 6-8 pm on Saturday, February 11, 2012, at Jamestown’s 3rd On 3rd Gallery, 116 East Third Street, adjacent to the Reg Lenna Civic Center. Presented in cooperation with the Arts Council for Chautauqua County, Women Create will be the gallery’s first major juried show and the second major group/multi-artists show since it opened last year.

Letter to the Community From the Loving Family of Edmund P. Szpaicher

While our loss is great, your kind words of encouragement, friendly smiles, and genuine hugs made life a little bit easier as we coped with our grief.

To Whom it May Concern: A Plea to ReOpen Senior Center at the Cooperative Extension

In the Jan. 19th paper there was an article by the director of the Cattaraugus County Department of the Aging, Cherianne Wold. It concerned the upcoming quarterly birthday party at the senior wellness and nutritional sites. She says this is a great time for people to get together. I agree. Only you will notice there is no site listed for Ellicottville. In December, our one gentleman, Lyn, turned 98. I don’t know if he was picked up and taken to a party. The meal sounds wonderful: baked ham, scalloped potatoes, vegetables, cake and ice cream. Please, pay attention out there. Ellicottville, the friendliest, busiest, richest village in the county, has nowhere for it’s senior citizens to meet and eat. Please help… anyone?? Someone?? --Barbara E. Champaigne

Night Sky Class

OLEAN – When John Elmore called Meme Yanetsko this fall and presented an idea to her for a potential Sports Boosters Club fundraiser, she jumped (in the ring) on it! Olean High School Sports Boosters will host the 1st Red & Gold Rumble – a USA Boxing sanctioned event -- at the high school on Saturday, April 21, 2012.

 John Elmore has been involved in boxing since his youth. In the 1970’s, the Olean YMCA was a training site for the Southern-Tier Boxing Club, which was run by the late Larry Twitty.  The late JoJoe Redeye and Jim Terrion of Salamanca trained club members in Salamanca.  Several guys from Olean who participated in the program including John were City of Olean Police Chief Terry Schnell, Rev. Van Gayton,

Stanley Parks, “Jolten” Joe McBride, Jeff Becker, Vince Marra, Tony Labella, Tommy Wilson, Robert Elmore, Tony Wilson, Rick Samuelson, and James Brooks. John is now a USA Boxing certified referee and boxing coach.  In fact, Olean High School hosted a boxing event back in 1973.

 The Red & Gold Rumble’s card will feature between 12 and 15 amateur bouts with members of boxing clubs from Rochester, Buffalo, Niagara Falls, and Erie: St. Martin’s Boxing Club; St. John International Boxing Club; Casal Boxing, WNY MMA, University of Buffalo Boxing Club, and the Bomb Squad.  This event, which is sanctioned by USA boxing, will feature boxers from the clubs ranging in ages from 11 to 24 years old.  Many of the boxers

have won state and national amateur titles. 

“Boxing is a sport that requires dedication and discipline as well as superb conditioning,” stated Mr. Elmore. “My hope is the values taught in boxing will carry over to other aspects of their lives,” he added. The goal of the Red and Gold Rumble is to raise $10,000 dollars for the Olean High School Sports Booster Club as well as money to send Western New York Boxers to national tournaments.  John is a Buffalo attorney, and a proud member of both the Olean High School Athletic and its Academic Wall of Fame.  He credits much of his success to the values and education that he received at Olean High School and this effort is a small way of giving back.  John’s company, Brown Chiari Attorneys LLP has signed on as one of the rumble’s initial sponsors.

 This event is also being coordinated and assisted by OHS students in Mrs. Chris Stavish’s Sports & Entertainment Marketing class. “I had presented to her students in another class early this year on marketing Olean.  When this event came along, I thought it would be a great idea to get the students involved from the first step – promoting, securing sponsors, ticket sales, etc.  With guidance from John, Mrs. Stavish, and myself, we are giving the students the go ahead on this event,” added Meme Yanetsko, OHS Sports Boosters Treasurer.

Exhibition at St. Bona’s

Quick Center Features Photography and Poetry of Etsuko Yuasa

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y., Jan. 20, 2012 — A photography exhibition by Japanese artist Etsuko Yuasa opens Wednesday, Jan. 25, at the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts at St. Bonaventure University. The exhibition, titled “Visual Poetry,” will be accompanied by poems written by Etsuko, which will be exhibited in both Japanese and English.   The opening will include a 4 p.m. lecture by the artist in the Quick Center’s Rigas Theater. The lecture is free and open to the public.   The daughter of famed cinematographer Kazutami Hara, Etsuko’s early years were filled with art, especially drawing and painting. As a teen, she developed interests in film, oil painting and design, but it was through still photography that she thought she could best express herself.   She enrolled at Tokyo Polytechnic University in 1982, and a year later visited

Los Angeles as part of a photographic thesis project. She was captivated by the American lifestyle and way of thinking. After school, Etsuko spent eight years as a photograph coordinator in the commercial photo industry, but became interested in the stylist aspects of photography. In time, she changed her focus from photography to being an independent stylist, working with TV and film celebrities to help bring together the “look” for a photo shoot.   Later, she would refocus on photography while continuing to be a force in the stylist industry. The curator for this exhibition is Chisato “Kitty” O. Dubreuil, assistant professor of art history at St. Bonaventure, who pursued the project after a chance meeting she had with the artist outside Tokyo’s Hara Museum of Contemporary Art in 2010. Dubreuil was with her husband, David, a former commercial

photographer, who saw Etsuko with a camera and struck up a conversation. The acquaintance turned into a long-distance friendship, and on a return visit to Japan last year, Dubreuil invited Etsuko to exhibit her work at St. Bonaventure.   “Her photographic work grabbed our hearts,” said Dubreuil. “They illuminated small glimpses of everyday lives, which most people don’t pay attention to. She is an extraordinary talent. She brings me back to the quiet times of the past, and I wanted to bring her work to America.”   The exhibition, Etsuko’s first in the West, is housed in the Quick Center’s Kenney Gallery and runs through March 11.   Quick Center galleries are open to the public at no charge from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. For more, visit quickcenter.

Catholic Schools Week

January 29 - February 5, 2012 : Commemorating the Importance

OLEAN, NY—January 23, 2012 –Southern Tier Catholic School and Archbishop Walsh Academy will celebrate Catholic Schools week from January 29 to February 5, 2012 with a number of activities held throughout the week – all aimed at celebrating the theme of this year’s national event and commemorating the importance of a Catholic education and its’ availability in every community. This year’s theme, provided by the National Catholic Educational Association, is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Academics. Service.” The theme focuses on three priorities that Catholic schools establish that make them stand out from other educational institutions. Children are taught faith – not just the basics of Christianity, but how to have a relationship with God; Academics, which in Catholic

schools are held to very high standards in order to assist each child in reaching his or her potential; and Service, the giving of one’s time and effort to help others, is taught both as an expression of faith and good citizenship. “Catholic schools week is a celebration of our faith and commitment to serving others,” states Tom McGlinn, principal of STCS and Walsh. “Our week-long observance of this national celebration is focused on Faith, Academics and Service – allowing us to acknowledge the impact a Catholic education has on every child.” Throughout the week, students will continue their normal academic schedule with special activities planned around the learning environment. Mass will be celebrated with the entire school, along with academic

challenges on the Catholic faith and discussions on the Saints taking place throughout the week. Students will work within their art classes to produce arts and crafts projects that will be given as gifts to the Pines during a visit that will also include the Walsh Choir performing. The school community will come together to work on projects that benefit the school including organizing rooms and beautifying the campus. In the spirit of community giving, the students will also collect canned goods to benefit the local food pantries that need additional supplies. The weeklong celebration will end with a pep rally to celebrate not only the school’s commitment to Catholic education but also to honor senior night for the boys’ basketball team for their game scheduled on February 3, 2012.

By Dan Balkin “TWO EDGES – FOUR EDGES – TWO EDGES” - I love those words. I’ll admit that they don’t have the resounding ring of “Ask not what your country can do for you…,” or “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall” or “I can’t get no, Satisfaction, no,no,no, hey, hey, hey - that’s what I say.” Indeed, those quotes contain some of the most important words uttered since the advent of single malt scotch. But I digress. So what exactly is “Two Edges – Four Edges – Two Edges? It is the mantra of the accomplished skier. Any parallel skier knows that one switches edges every time one turns. That is the two edges to two edges part. The key to this

ski tip is thinking about “four edges.” Ok, let’s keep this simple. If we are skiing across (traversing) a ski hill, we are on our uphill edges. Some skiers rush from one set of edges to another set of edges when they turn. This is essentially a defensive move. Their idea is to try to get the skis to turn as quickly as possible so as not to pick up speed. That is understandable - but the rushed turn creates a host of problems – most notably the fact that skis that are wildly swung from one set of edges to another set of edges can never slice through the snow in a clean carving arc. This is where “Two Edges – Four Edges – Two Edges” is useful – especially the “Four Edges” part. The sensation of feeling “four edges” describes

the feeling of momentarily flattening our skis between turns. It means that we will slow down the transition between turns and allow our ski tips to draw us into a turn – as opposed to violently thrashing the tails of our skis sideways. That move allows us to progressively “feed” our ski edges into the slope. This is especially important if one desires to carve on ice. For, it is almost impossible to wrestle a ski into a carving arc once it has started sliding across a firm slope. On ice, carved turns are most effective when the edges near our ski tips bite into the ice first. By slowing down our turn transition (that is, thinking about flattening our skis onto “four edges” as we transition from turn to turn), we give our edges a fighting chance to hold on ice. You can control your speed by allowing your carving skis to climb back up the hill until you hit that sweet spot where your speed is in control but you still have enough momentum to help initiate the next turn. The four edges frenzy has even caused J.L. Hinklebottom (famous revisionist historian) to rephrase history. Jack: “Ask not what two edges can do for you, ask what four edges can do for skiing.” / Ronnie: “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down the wall of two edged skiing and allow people to find freedom with four edges.” /Mick: “ Hey, hey, hey, four edges is what I say.” Whatever.

Lights, Camera, Action!

Learn More About Our Commitment to Safety and Your Responsibilities If you’ve been to Holiday Valley over the past year, you might have noticed a young woman on a snowboard with a video camera. Well, that’s probably Ashley Baron, our very own, very talented videographer. Baron may have the best job in the world, she acknowledges. The avid snowboarder who majored in film production rides all around the mountain to catch the action with an eye toward giving viewers a real feel for the

entire resort and the abilities of our skiers and riders. “This is such an active place that draws such amazing athletes,” says Baron. “There’s always a story to be told.” More than 65 artfully produced and edited videos already have been posted on YouTube ( valley) and Vimeo (vimeo. com/holidayvalley or vimeo. com/4278terrainpark) and more go up every week. Topics include

everything from coverage of opening day, long ski weekends and all the big competitions, to folks just having fun on a great powder day or a piece on the new mountain coaster ride. “There’s a pretty good chance you could see yourself on camera one of these days,” Baron says. Check out the sites to see if you’re already a star, and while there, sign up for email notification of new video postings.

Moms Deserve Vacations Spend a Relaxing Day at Holiday Valley

Do you ever feel like the family vacation is for everybody but you, Mom? Well, it doesn’t have to be that way at Holiday Valley. With the kids safely enrolled in ski school and day care, and Dad off skiing with his hot-dogger friends, why not treat yourself to a fabulous day on your own or with your girlfriends? Your day might look something like this: 9:45 am: Enjoy a hot “cuppa” at McCarty’s Café next door to Creekside where you can observe the kids, read the paper or check your email using our resort-wide free WiFi. 10:15 am: Stroll over to the Tamarack Club for your massage, mani/pedi or facial appointment at the relaxing, invigorating Falling Waters Spa. Call 716-677-9700. 12:00 pm: Meet the girls for a bite at John Harvard’s Brew House in the Tamarack Club and

enjoy the fabulous wine list and great-for-sharing appetizers. Or pick up lunch to go and picnic on one of the many outdoor patios. While at John Harvard’s, order a hearth-baked pizza for pick up at dinner time. 1:00 pm: Hit the slopes! Take some runs with your friends or lessons from the pros. Not in the mood for downhill? How about a little cross country or snowshoeing on the many miles of trails along the golf course, at the top of the mountain or on state forest land that connects at the top of the trails? 3:00 pm: Meet up with the kids at Creekside to take a few runs and let them demonstrate the new skills they’ve learned during their lessons. 4:00 pm: Refresh your vacation wardrobes at the Mountain Shops (in the Clubhouse Chalet and Yodeler Lodge), where

you’ll find top-quality men’s, women’s and kids’ apparel at very competitive prices. You’ll also find HV logoed items and sundries. 5:00 pm: Pick up that pizza and head home for a relaxing family evening. OR get ready for date night! The Children’s Learning Center (716-699-3933) has a list of local babysitters for evening child care (advance planning highly recommended). 7:00 pm: You and the hubby can enjoy some night skiing, a trip to Ellicottville for drinks and live music or a visit to the always-hopping Seneca Allegany Casino. Of course, there are many other activities available at the resort – and we won’t blame you if you also schedule a nap! Visit www. to see all the options for your custom-made Mom’s day.

Open Jam in Bradford Country Music Every Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday

The Tuesday Night square dance will not be happening over the winter months.  We hope to start dancing again in the spring. We will be playing “old time” tunes & songs every Tuesday at the crook farm every Tuesday at 7pm “Old time” is mostly fiddle tunes, some songs, and all acoustic instruments are welcome.  We will sit in a circle (not a performance) and share tunes.  Listeners are welcome, & if we get dancers & a caller we

may do a square or two.  This is a good environment to learn new tunes & practice a new instrument.  Lead by Howard Blumenthal There is “country” music at the crook farm every Thursday & Friday evening. This is an open, local country music jam, dancers & country musicians are invited to these sessions also.  The repertoire is mostly popular country from the 50’s & 60’s, mostly songs. Lead by Larry Combs.  Starts @ 7:30pm

There is a lot of “overlap” between country & old time.  Old time focuses on (mostly) tunes & songs that were popular before 1940, country focuses on songs popular after 1950.  Also old time is primarily tune (instrumental) based, but every so often we’ll sing an old song.

“Kaleidoscope” To Launch UB Center Seeking Mentor United Arts Appeal 2012 Fund Drive on Feb 3rd and 17th

United Arts Appeal of Chautauqua County board members recently sent letters to local businesses and selected individuals, requesting their support for the arts in 2012. . Pictured here are (standing, from left) Dan Pierce, Elizabeth Bush, Rick Davis, (seated, from left) Julie Newell, Lissa VanDewark, Sally Ulrich, Stephanie Rogers, and Shane Hawkins

Jamestown, NY - The United Arts Appeal of Chautauqua County is creating a special event to launch its 2012 fund drive. Kaleidoscope will be presented on Friday, February 3, at the Fredonia Opera House and again on Friday, February 17, at Jamestown’s Reg Lenna Civic Center. Beginning at 7 pm and emceed by Jamestown’s comedy improv troupe, The Unexpected Guests, both evenings will feature samplings of performances including folk music, ballet, theater, chamber players and singers. All eight UAA member organizations -- the Chautauqua Regional Youth Ballet, Community Music Project, 1891 Fredonia Opera House, Infinity Visual & Performing Arts, Jamestown Concert Association, Lucille Ball Little Theatre of Jamestown, Reg Lenna Civic Center, and the Western New York Chamber Orchestra -- will contribute to the delightful evening! This year we are presenting

Kaleidoscope to give the entire community the opportunity to see the great arts offerings in Chautauqua County, said Rick Davis, UAA board president. In addition, door prizes of free tickets to presentations by all the member organizations will be given away each evening. Admission for either performance is only $5. Tickets for the February 3 performance in Fredonia can be reserved by calling (716) 679-1891 and for February 17 in Jamestown by calling (716) 484-7070. Tickets will also be available at the door. UAA board members recently sent letters to businesses and selected individuals throughout the county. The letters included an invitation to Kaleidoscope and asked for support for UAA members and the many smaller groups and independent artists that receive UAA funding. This is the only request we make of the local community, Davis noted. Our focus is on soliciting businesses because of the strong impact a healthy arts community has on the local

economy. We are also deeply grateful for funding from the county, local foundations, and individuals. In 2011 the United Arts Appeal received major support from Chautauqua County, the Jessie Smith Darrah Fund, the Hultquist Foundation, and the Reg and Betty Lenna Fund. Patrons (contributors of $1,000+) for the 2011 Fund Drive were the Community Development Association, Lyndon and Melanie Gritters, and Matric Limited. M. L. Feather, KeyBank, Phillips Lytle LLP, Dr. Bruce Rockwell and Wegmans made Special Gifts ($500+), and Donors ($250+) included Carlson’s Jewelry, Fessenden Laumer & DeAngelo, Margaret S. and F.

Contributions to the United Arts Appeal are tax deductible, and contributors are offered a range of benefits for their generosity, including free admissions to selected performances and recognition in printed programs and on the UAA’s website.

Up Close & Personal The History Behind Salamanca Snowsnake Competition

By: Meaghan O’Rourke St. Bonaventure University This Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 28 and 29 marks Salamanca’s annual Snowsnake competition. The competition begins at 11 a.m. and will go on until dusk, said Jenny Ingrao, member services and events manager at the Salamanca Area Chamber of Commerce. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the Erie Rail Yard on North Main Street across from the Salamanca Rail Museum. Snowsnake is an ancient Iroquois game played in the winter months. “It’s a long running tradition that used to be a men’s only sport,” said Ingrao. “Men’s only meant that it was only men competing and viewing it. Now they’ve opened it up so that everyone can view it.” Traditionally a men’s game, it was used to sharpen individual’s hunting skills and open communication between territories. “Now it is just a popular winter sport,” she said. Today, Native teams travel between territories to compete against each other in the highly competitive game. The game is played on a track piled approximately three and a half feet high with snow that gradually slopes downward to its end. A log is placed at

the top and dragged along the track, which can be longer than 1,600-feet, to create an icy trough about five to six inches deep. Ingrao thinks the mild winter should not be a problem in terms of building the track. She said that local businesses have allowed their plowed snow piles to be shipped to the track to ensure enough snow for the competition. Each competing team has shooters and shiners. Shooters score points by throwing the snowsnake down the trough and shiners maintain the snakes and determine if the long or short snake will be used in each throw based on weather and snow

conditions, track length and the thrower’s ability. A snowsnake is a straight stick that has been shaped or smoothed with one flat side that when made correctly is smooth and flexible. The shooter who throws the snake the furthest wins; some reports have recorded shooters throwing their snakes more than a mile. The winning team is generally awarded with prizes. The biggest prize, however, is the bragging rights until the next competition.

Architectual Digest More Than Potential

Story and Photos By John Thomas Staff Writer High up on Woodward Road is an old farm house; sitting pretty on four acres of hilltop, the house and barn well maintained over the years. The view from the front porch looks over Hencoop Hollow and goes on for miles. Mature trees surround the house, and around the back is a pond, currently frozen and covered with snow. The lot is mostly cleared and has plenty of room for an ambitious garden. In the barn is plenty of room for storing a variety of multiwheeled toys. Or beyond that: an artists studio, exercise room, or a great space for a barn

dance. Good things continue inside the home, the large rooms all have beautiful woodwork, and the hardwood floors appear to be original. Just off the garage is a large family room. It’s big enough for several game tables, and still has room for part of it to be sectioned off for a spare bedroom. Just off the parlor is a spare bedroom; decorated in blues and pastels. There is a half bath just off the kitchen. The stairs lead up to the second floor where there is a large master bath and bedroom. At the end of the hall is a spare room, under the cathedral ceiling, that could be a play room or home office. Next to the garage is a separate room equipped with a

hot tub. Not many farm houses move into the modern world and still maintain their old country charm. The large rooms, generous land and barn mean this home maintains as much potential today as it did many years ago. It’s a bit of country charm for the modern age. Furthermore it’s only two miles from downtown Ellicottville with its skiing, golf, shops and restaurants. Stop by for an Open House this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Jan 28 & 29, both days 1-5 p.m. For more information about this property contact Cathleen Pritchard, Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker at ERA Team VP Real Estate 716983-4234.

Truth Or Consequences Newt 3.0

Newt. Praise Jesus and pass the popcorn because this is going to be the greatest cheesy horror movie ever made!      So how did the Party of Lincoln get here?  It started with their coddling and manipulation of the Tea Party.  Party leaders and GOP insiders recognized early on that the Baggers weren’t going away and would have to be dealt with one way or another.  Unfortunately, for them anyway, they chose to embrace the loony’s and invite Doug Arrowsmith them into their homes rather than distancing themselves from them and pointing out   This was the week.  This how dangerous they were.  Big was the one I’ve been waiting shots and corporate CEO’s for.  I’ve known, or at least desperate to defend their way had an inkling, that this was of lives and bottom lines began coming.  The “big Kaboom!”  to systematically manipulate The week when the Republican the Tea Party platform to suit mainstream and the wacky their own needs.  What they Right finally called it off.  It’s failed to realize was that if not going to be an amicable they could manipulate them split or even one of those then a devious slight of hand uncomfortable divorces where artist like Newt would have everyone pretends to still be no problem bringing them into friends for the sake of the kids.  the fold.  Republican leaders This is going to be a full-on “call figured that they could lull the the cops someone has a gun” Tea Party people into a false domestic incident.  On one side sense of acceptance and then you have the basically sane, pawn them off on someone economically conservative like Michelle Bachman or Ron wing of the GOP.  These are Paul when the election rolled the Washington insiders who around.  They figured that their know, no matter how disgusted attacks on Newt in Iowa would they get, that it takes two sides have rendered him impotent by to accomplish anything in DC.  this point in the primary season.  These are the folks who hated They forgot who they were Ted Kennedy but wept when dealing with. he died.  On the other side?       Newt Gingrich is guided Remember the movie “Children by vengeance.  Even his own of the Corn”?  Well that’s pretty former Republican colleagues much what you have on the from the 90’s have described other side and they’re being him as “evil.”  He shut the led by a murderous, pitch fork government down because Bill wielding man/boy named Clinton made him sit in the

back of Air Force One. Newt is convinced of his own moral and intellectual superiority.  In his mind he will always be the smartest man in the room.  Newt has quietly bided his time.  To him this is not just a Presidential campaign.  This is revenge on a party that tossed him out of the Speakers chair and Washington. Win or lose, Newt sees this as his opportunity to destroy the party’s hand-picked Golden Boy.  And that’s where the Tea Party comes in.  The Baggers are also guided by vengeance. They see a nation that is leaving them behind and rejecting their outdated ideals.  They resent Barack Obama for taking away their America and they will do anything and embrace anyone who shares that resentment. They look beyond Newts obvious moral failings.  They look beyond his lobbyist past. They look beyond his lack of religion.  All they see is his fire and resentment and it’s like looking into a mirror.  As Newt wages war on his own party he also carries the torch for a war on Liberal America and the Tea Partiers will be his army.       I’m not big on watching political conventions.  Usually, by the time a convention rolls around, the nominating process is a mere formality.  Party members have fallen in line by then.  Oh boy is this year going to be different.  There is so much hate and resentment in the GOP rank and file right now that this convention might look like World War Three and Newt will be standing front and center with a bomb strapped to his chest.  Happy Days are here again!

Frank Zappa (1940-1993) was an American composer who immersed himself in his craft with equal parts vision and vigor. Over the course of 80 albums—first as the leader of the Mothers Of Invention and then as a solo artist—Zappa raised the bar in a rock world that spent most of its time embracing the ordinary. Dweezil Zappa is becoming more proactive in the continued public display of his father’s music for years to come. Zappa Plays Zappa is a seven-personstrong ensemble dedicated to keeping Frank Zappa’s music very much alive. Zappa Plays Zappa is the synergistic result of what happens when a vibrant repertoire of music is learned by a stellar band and worshipped by an audience weary of Pro Tools. “It seems to me that people my age (38) and younger know the Zappa name a little bit, but they don’t know a lot about the music,” says Dweezil.  “I feel that Frank’s music needs to be proposed to a new audience.

Ellicottvillas n At the town planning board s Monday night Mark Dean, tarchitect for the Ellicottvillas rshared ownership complex, –presented revised plans for the new clubhouse. The drawing presented had height sdimensions indicated on the yelevation drawings. The highest ,point of the building is the roof of the turret located at the back lof the building. The height as measured from the center of rthe cone is exactly 35 feet. Mr. Dean said he would “try to pull it down just a bit,” to allow for any ,mistakes during construction. If rby chance the final constructed sheight exceeded 35 feet the yproject would have to apply for sa variance, which could take lsome time. Mr. Dean indicated ethat some interior ceilings are ,fairly high to create ambiance pand that “there is room” to make dadjustments. He said he could adjust some ceilings four or five inches to create some leeway in gthe height. f Parking was the next issue ato be discussed. The original nplans for the project called dfor 182 parking spaces, and lthe revised plans now show r190. The architect explained the had increased the number sof spaces to allow for events ain the clubhouse. There was a esuggestion from the board about tadding extra landscaping to esoften the look of the complex and help hide parked cars.

Snowboarders will be held April 1-5, and the Nationals for Skiers April 8-10, both at Copper Mountain, CO. Pat Morgan, Holiday Valley’s Terrain Park manager, said the USASA has held competitions at Holiday Valley since the founding of the WNY Series. Chuck Allen founded the USASA in 1988 to offer his children, who were snowboarding enthusiasts, a safe and regulated competition to show off and test their skills, and following funding from TransWorld SNOWboarding Magazine, the group became the first governing body for competitive grassroots snowboarding. Pete and Donna Greene founded the WNY Snowboard Series in 1994, also as a way to offer their kids a chance to compete, and initially only offered Half-pipe and Slopestyle events. The chapter was very successful, with 35 competitors from the WNYSS participating

in the 1995 Nationals. Boorman became director of the chapter after the Greene’s retired in 2004. The USASA and its regional chapters have enabled all ages and groups to participate in organized events, and the club has established rules for the five major disciplines. Boorman said there are currently over 5,000 members in the USASA, with 32 regional chapters across the nation. He added that the USASA’s motto is fun, fair and safe competition for all. On-line registration will close at 10 p.m. on the Thursday before the event. Contestants may cancel their event registration up to 48 hours prior to the event, by contacting Boorman. If you have any questions, or are interested in more information, visit www.usasa. org, or www., contact Boorman at 585-455-5213, or email him at andrew@wnyss. com.

Sponsors are CUTCO Company Corporation, Ka-Bar Knives, Ron’s Gun Shop, Microtel Inn of Olean, Premo Limo, Hertz/Mallory’s Autobody, and Amazing Aerial Visitors to the sports show can browse, shop, and even schedule a spring fishing charter, according to Meme Yanetsko. “Most of the fishing charters are coming with their calendars, so you can charter your boat trip out on any of the lakes or ponds.” As for past attendance (in September of 2010), the show probably attracted about 50 vendors and 1200 visitors. Yanetsko says this year, “With 41 vendors, I am happy with that number. They are all in the (sporting) industry and are all paying vendors. This year we are really targeting hunting

and fishing, as well as the other (outdoor recreational) sports.” Among this year’s attractions are special guest Roger Raglin, producer of the popular television show “Roger Raglin Outdoors.” You can check out the Camp Cando Recreational Home by Owl Homes outside the Events Center. There will be raffles for sporting goods prizes, or you can ask Dr. Al-Humadi about sports medicine or arthroscopic treatments. Dr. AlHumadi is attending courtesy of Olean General Hospital and will give a presentation as well as take questions. Hours for the Greater Olean Outdoor and Recreation Sports Show are Saturday January 28th from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday January 29th from 104. Admission is $3 for adults, $2 for students and seniors. Children 12 and under are free with an adult.

making a close review of the plans the board noted that there seemed to be plenty of room for snow storage after plowing. There was some discussion about when the sewer and water lines had been laid out according to the complex’s original plans. With the elimination of one building and addition of the clubhouse, some of the water and sewer leads will not be used. They had been inspected and approved by the town, but with construction of the new clubhouse some of the old lines will be unused. The town had to go back move, refit and reinspect the new lines at a cost of $3500. Town Engineer Mark Alianello felt it was appropriate that the complex reimburse the town for the expense. A suggestion was made to stripe a crosswalk in front of the clubhouse to facilitate a crossing area for pedestrians. After more discussion the board came up with a list of changes for the plans and stepped through the next stage of plan filing for the architect. A motion was made to conditionally accept the plans also long as other drawings are presented with the changes and the project pays any outstanding PIP fees. The motion passed. Buffalo Ranch Development Mr. Sal Iadicicco presented the board with a plan to develop the old Buffalo Ranch on Horn Hill Road. He showed the board plans to create thirty-five, five acre lots for single-family homes and a section of town homes along Horn Hill Road. He plans to build out the development in stages, starting first with just to or three of the five-acre plots. First he will build model homes for project, as the first houses sell develop the town homes, and build out the rest of the single family homes as the market allows.

This promises to be a truly inspiring and fascinating film with a local flair: Holiday Valley Ski Patrol official Bill Marx’s daughter (who is a former Holiday Valley Adaptive Instructor and is currently a Level 3 Alpine Adaptive Instructor in Aspen), Nicole Marx is an instructor in the film.

In parallel with the film, Warren Miller created “” to increase recognition and funding for local adaptive-sports groups.
