Coinciding with Ellicottville’s Winter Blues Weekend, January 20-22, produced by the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce, is the annual Harley Day Valley at Holiday Valley Ski Resort. “Our great establishments and venues seem to figure out how to outdo themselves every year,” Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce Events and Membership Manager, Barb Pump said. “We have been adding bands

left and right for the past couple weeks to come up with the 11 that are set, as of right now.” That weekend is also the annual Harley Day at Holiday Valley. Head up and enjoy the slopes, but also head to the Main Lodge where you can experience all there is in the way of motorcycles and riding, once the weather breaks and the roads are a bit See “BLUES” Page 9

Planning for Mardi Gras 25th Silver Anniversary Celebrated March 11, 2017 By Carol Fisher

For the last two hundred years, Cattaraugus County has always celebrated veterans, Native Americans, Santa Claus, dogs and sundry animals (sometimes including camels and zee-donks), landmark anniversaries and holidays with parades. Ellicottville has had its share of those street displays as well as annual winter on-the-slopes parades: New Years’ torchlights on Holiday Valley’s Cindy’s Run, winter carnival dummy downhills on Yodeler and carnival dress-up parades on Mardi Gras trail, or years earlier, on Greer Hill. These costume parades were, traditionally, a way to say thank

Updates For Holiday Valley & HioliMont Ski Resorts “Leave Your Home Run’s In Cleveland”, HoliMont’s Dan Balkin notes, “In baseball, it is necessary to rotate your upper body to smash home runs and earn millions of dollars for yourself and your shrewd agent. In good skiing, we use or upper body in a completely different way.”

ECS Board Meeting

Village Board Discusses Sidewalk Snow Removal

Ward Retires, Upcoming School Budget Discussed

Good News In typical fashion, Village Mayor John Burrell started off the Board meeting with good news. He reported the Village had received checks from both the New York State CHIPS program and the PAVENY program totaling $26,332.54. The Mayor said the money was $8,332.54 or 46.3% more than budgeted income for this period. He reported Jigger Stokes and Jesse Klahn have both received their Class C and D Water Operator’s licenses. He said Tom Dineen has been approved for a Class B license. He offered congratulations to all three men. He also said the Village had taken delivery of the new sidewalk plow. In not so good news Burrell reported the new sidewalk plow had broken down on its first day of use. Before the breakdown, the machine had functioned well, and they are waiting for delivery on the narrow set of wheels that will allow it to be used as a sidewalk plow. Parts are ordered. He also said mortgage tax payments to the Village were less than anticipated. Kelly Fredrickson who is on track to be able to apply for the Code Enforcement Officer started work at the DPW. Implementation of the new Williamson Law accounting software is going well. Village employees are now reporting how much time they spend working on various jobs so the hours can be charged to specific accounting departments. He mentioned the Four Flushers meeting

Ellicottville Central School Superintendent Mark Ward knows the district “will always be a special place” in his heart. That is what he told school board of education members during a Tuesday meeting, when Board President Carl Calarco read Ward’s letter of resignation due to retirement. Although Ward shared thoughts about his years with the district, it was the board members, who shed tears, applause and gave the superintendent a standing ovation. It was such support Ward said he appreciates. He said he is proud to have been able to guide “a very special school,” adding his 50 years at the district has been a great journey. Ward said he graduated in 1971, returning as a teacher in 1975 and has since served as a coach, administrator and more. Outside of his family, Ward said the district has been “the focus of my life.” Ward said the district is one where people take care of each other and make a positive difference in the life of students. Although, he said, he is proud to be part of new improvements to the district, he said he is most proud of the teachers and staff he hired since, he said, that makes him excited for what the future holds. “The best years are ahead,” said the nine-year

HoliMont Update Leave Your Home Runs in Cleveland


r n g e . y l


t e



By Dan Balkin e e Let’s throw ‘em a bone. .You’ve got to hand it to The Great City of Cleveland y– the town had a fantastic dsports run last year. Being .from Buffalo, I know and love an underdog when I see aone – but Cleveland became uthe Overdog in basketball, hand nearly pulled it off again gin baseball’s World Series. sNow, I’ve never hit a home srun. But unless you are in 0a catatonic state, you have probably seen one. Some yburly batter stares down the hpitcher, a fastball whizzes ttoward the plate, the batter rotates his upper body as he swings his bat and, suddenly, one hears a thundering crack as bat meets ball – and presto – the ball skyrockets out of ethe park. Sounds much more fun and dramatic than my psychologically scarring 9th tgrade date dance experience fwith Florence K. Linkletter. s(See Photo 1) e In baseball, it is necessary lto rotate your upper body !to smash home runs and eearn millions of dollars for eyourself and your shrewd In good skiing, dagent. we use or upper body in a ycompletely different way.

e s

~ The Villager ~ Page 5

To make great ski turns, we rely on our lower body for the turning forces, and our upper body for stability. (See Photo 2) Do you see what this skier is doing wrong? He is using a move similar to a baseball swing while skiing down the hill. In other words, he is USING HIS UPPER BODY TO ROTATE IN THE DIRECTION HE IS GOING, NOT HIS FEET AND LEGS. In addition – look where he is rotating his body – UP THE HILL. This creates a host of problems – especially on steeper and firmer slopes. He is turning right. It does not take a rocket scientist to surmise that his next turn would be to the left. In skiing, we should always have our upper body orientated toward where we are heading – and the last time I checked – we are always heading DOWN THE HILL. Watch from your chairlift perch, and you will see many skiers incorrectly rotate their upper bodies in a similar fashion. (See Photo 3) Contrast the above skier with this PSIA ski pro. She is not leading her turn to the right by rotating her left

hand and shoulder up the hill. Instead, her upper body is ORIENTATED down the hill – toward where she is heading for her next turn. Notice the arrows on her legs that indicate she is rotating her lower body (NOT UPPER BODY!) to create her ski turn. Her feet and legs will rotate (twist) in the opposite direction for the next turn. Fun Fact: 65% of your weight is in your upper body / 35% of your weight is in your lower body. That factoid grows strangely compelling if you reflect upon it while eating chicken wings. You don’t want to throw your upper body around while you ski, for that will compromise your balance. Always think of your upper body (65%) as the stabilizing mass that you turn your feet and legs (35%) under. Our PSIA pro in the last picture may not earn millions of dollars, and she certainly does not have a shrewd agent, but to use a great baseball metaphor, she has hit a skiing HOME RUN!

Bonas Professor Published In Journal of Physical Chemistry C Warren PA (814)723-4560 Simpson worked surface. Simpson’s research determined that this molecule can be switched between two spin states, similar to how a light switch is turned on and off.   “These molecules (porphyrins) have great potential to be used as molecular spintronics,” Simpson said. “Understanding and determining molecules that can be spintronics is necessary for producing quantum computers. Quantum computers have the potential to perform calculations faster than currently used siliconbased computers.”  Simpson said the findings are important not only because of the speed of the computers, but also the size of them.   “Current computers have a size restriction due to the physical limitations of the transistors that are used in them,” he said. “However, quantum computers can get past this limitation.”

As we enter Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend and another great ski week. The really FUN times here in Ellicottville will continue and add to the good times that are so prevalent in Ellicottville. We are still on course this coming week with another excellent music and good time line-up. Starting today Thursday January 12, 2017 through Wednesday January 18, 2017, the week before our Winter Blues Festival Weekend, we will have fifteen Music Shows, six DJ’s, two Karaoke events, several Sound System happenings plus all the food and drink specials offered in our neat clubs and restaurants for Ellicottville’s visitors and residents alike to enjoy. THURSDAY we begin with one Band at 8:00 PM in The Gin Mill. That will be Joseph & Johnson doing the first of their two-show week. We will hear acoustic, country, folk, to classic rock music done in their FUN & unique style. Retro Lil Joey might also join in, making another neat Gin Mill Music Night happen. FRIDAY our weekend begins with four Bands and three DJ’s. We begin at 7:00 PM in Balloons with Breakaway on stage. This five-piece WNY Band performs a wide variety of cover tunes from several eras, such as The Beatles, 70’s Funk, 80’s Hair Metal and tunes from the 90’s to today. They will create another FUN Balloons Music Evening. Following Breakaway, DJ Kage will keep the FUN times rolling with neat danceable tunes and party promotion till close. Then at 8:00 PM, Vinnie DeRosa will be performing in Villaggio. Vinnie is part of The Vitamin D Band that plays a steady string of covers and originals in the styles of the original artists. That being Pop, Funk, R&B, Rock, Soul, Reggae and The Blues. Moving to 9:00 PM Friday, The Gin Mill will have country singer-songwriter Sean Patrick McGraw on stage. Sean will be putting on his “Beer Drinking Sean Patrick McGraw Singing

Country Kinda Night”. A great country music night is on the way to The Gin Mill this Friday. Also at 9:00 PM The PUB in Great Valley will have DJ Felony and his Karaoke Show performing. Like always, The PUB Patrons will have two options, be part of the show or just kick back and enjoy The Local & FUN PUB Good Times. Then at 10:00 PM Madigans will have DJ Nelz & DJ Tyler Swift on duty in their up-stairs Party & Dance Hall till close. Also at 10:00 PM Mike WhiteChaple Jack will be performing in Balloons Back-Bar. This being his first performance in Balloons, we believe he will be doing a bit of a solo Blues Show. This should be an entertaining Friday night in Balloons. Moving to SATURDAY when seven Bands and three DJs will be entertaining The Ellicottvilleites. We begin at 3:00 PM in The Holiday Valley Lodge, T Bar with Jay McDonnell doing his solo acoustic folk rock show. Jay’s line up contains acoustic folk rock tunes from Rockers like Jackson Brown, James Taylor, Cat Stevens and several others. This talented singer will occasionally surprise us with a blues tune. So after a day on the slopes, stop in The T Bar to enjoy Jay’s neat show. Then at 6:00 PM Balloons will have The Jeff Jenson Band on stage. This touring Blues Band puts on an excellent show. They have toured with and opened for several well know Blues Artists. Also, they are noted for breathing new life into the blues scene. Following The Jeff Jenson Band a DJ will take over playing neat danceable tunes and party promotion till close. Also at 6:00 PM Madigans will have a three piece version of The Party Squad, Buffalo’s Premier Party Rock Band. Dave, Mark and Joe will be doing their wonderful show consisting of cover classic rock tunes done in their neat and unique way. FUN times will be happenin Saturday in Madigans. Next at 8:00 PM DNR on TAP will be in Villaggio doing their Rock N Blues Show. This four piece Band does cover Blues tunes from the 70’s into the 2000’s in their version of inspired Blues which creates a really FUN Rock N Bluzey Show. Then at 8:30 PM Seth Adams will be doing a show in The Igloo of The Ellicottville Brewing Company. Here we have a singer/songwriter who, according to his web-site, writes compelling songs with honest lyrics. His music

is like The Counting Crows, Tom Petty and Ryan Adams. This should be a FUN show. Next at 9:00 PM The Gin Mill will have Mo Porter on stage. Mo Porter is a Rock N Bluzey party-promoting & FUN band. Their play list is classic rock to blues done in a FUN, party time way. Mark, Chuck, Jim and Bill will be this weeks version of this really great band, who always make a really good time happen.

First at 6:00 PM The Ellicottville Brewing Company will have Mark Gamsjager & The Lustre Kings doing a show in EBC’s Igloo. This four piece traveling Band bills themselves as doing R&R The right way. They perform all over The U.S. digging deep into early Rock & Related Styles of Rock-ABilly to Gospel in a way that is totally entertaining.

In a pre-parade conversation, last March, with one very beloved Bobby McCarthy, he clearly reminded me that he was in the room at Holiday Valley with me and Jane Eshbaugh, when the Village parade was born. For those of you who don’t know the story, let me take you on a little trip back to mid-February, 25 years ago. At that time, it was my privilege to help Arleen Solly make her grand opening of Kazoo II a success. But, I needed to find a way to get people to come into the village, off the slopes, and away from the good times at HoliMont and Holiday Valley where revelers were having fun celebrating at their respective winter festivities. Initially, I had approached Jane with another suggestion, but the conversation turned reminiscent of “the old days” and I mentioned that it would be such fun to bring

Dances and merriment filled our streets and buildings all those many years ago at the early stages of the ski industry in Ellicottville. I mentioned a parade of sorts, and Jane responded, “good idea. Why don’t you do that?” Once I picked myself off the floor realizing what I had just committed to, we set to work with the initial framework where we would choose the King and Queen of Holiday Valley’s Winter Carnival at the culmination of that street parade, in the Gazebo, by applause. Now, here’s where I tell you why our parade has been called Mardi Gras all these years. It has absolutely NOTHING to do with the pre-Lenten parades and Mardi Gras festivities in N’awlins (as some say in “The Big Easy”). Remember, I mentioned Bob McCarthy a few sentences back. Last year, while discussing the 2017 event (which, alas, he planned to participate in), we both laughed as we remembered how the parade all started. When I asked if he recalled why it ended up being called Mardi Gras, he said he indeed did. I wanted the parade to be generic, open to any theme. It was to be festive, and bright, and happy. And, since the parade in town is just an extension of the winter carnival parade at Holiday

Valley, on Mardi Gras, it made good sense to name this one in town Mardi Gras as well. Perhaps we might not have the many discussions about the name every year if we had the foresight to call it “Mardi Gras Downtown.” And there, my friends, you have the rest of that story. Now, stay tuned. The story is just beginning anew! This is the 25th Mardi Gras Parade to march on Ellicottville’s streets. The Silver Anniversary will be celebrated on Saturday, March 11th!!!! All stops will be pulled. All systems GO! The Fabulous, Fun Parade last year was a mere prelude to what is in store this year. The highly successful and crazyfun Bacchus Ball was a test run. If last year’s positive and delighted responses from the participants are any indication, tickets will be HOT items this year. When you see them for sale on the Ellicottville Chamber website, scoop them up ad plan your most elaborate costume! The Friday, March 10 tickets will be limited by the accommodations of the venue. Don’t miss the fun. Watch the Chamber website and this Villager paper for more details as they become available. Mark your calendars. Be part of the parade, or be a spectator. Either way, be part of the fun. And, I’ll see YOU there as another chapter is made in Ellicottville’s history.

face a street or the parking lot for the hotel. Planning Board Chair Nancy Rogan noted the bank had been cooperative in reducing the size and number of signs. The bank reduced the size of the main M&T logo over the entryway and had reduced the number of signs down to three, one on each of the visible sides. The board allowed an M&T logo on the kiosk for the ATM because it is part of the structure. The bank removed the logo from the In and Out direction signs, creating a simple In or Out sign with an arrow. M&T said they would put in plants at the base of the signs to soften the look.

The board also inquired about the film the bank was planning to apply to the windows on the entrance. The bank representative said it is a security film to allow customers using the ATM in the vestibule to have privacy. The board determined this was allowed. Two motions were passed, one approving the three logo signs on the façade of the building, and a second approving the logo on the kiosk for the ATM. The direction signs did not need approval because the bank removed the logo and promised plantings at their bases. Chair Rogan thanked the bank for their cooperation.

PUBLIC NOTICES COLLECTOR’S NOTICE Notice is hereby given that I, the undersigned, collector of taxes in and for the Town of Ellicottville, County of Cattaraugus, State of New York, have received the warrant for the collection of the taxes of the said town for the present year, and that I will attend at the place and dates named below, for thirty days from the date hereof, from 9:00am until 4:00pm, for the purposes of receiving payment of said taxes. Further, take notice that taxes may be paid on or before January 31, 2017, without charge of interest. On all taxes collected after such date there shall be added interest of one percent for each month until the return of the unpaid taxes is made to the Cattaraugus County Treasurer on the 1st day of April, 2016 Town Hall • 1 W. Washington St. in Ellicottville, NY 14731 • Monday-Friday 9:00am to 4:00pm (except Holidays) Robyn George, Town of Ellicottville Tax Collector, December 31, 2016


Cont. From Cover where both the Town and Village Engineers, himself, the Town Supervisor, and Jeff Smith of Municipal Services attended. The discussion of creating a joint Department of Public Works head for both the Village and Town is ongoing. Mr. Burrell said the Admar Company that sold the new sidewalk plow to the Village is offering to give the Village $15,000 on trade-in for the old Skid-Steer. The money could be applied to the Village’s share of the cost of the new sidewalk plow. Harold Morton was not at the meeting, but the Mayor said the DPW has been very busy dealing with the extreme amount of snowfall. Engineering Nick Dobmeier from Nussbaumer and Clark was recognized as the replacement for Mike Smith who has retired. Mr. Dobmeier said he was excited to be reporting to the board and had “big shoes to fill.” He said he is about ready to issue a Certificate of Substantial Completion for Southern Tier Construction’s (STC) portion of the Wastewater Treatment Plant upgrade. He said that work should be ready for “close-out” by the end of this week, and O’Connell Electric’s work should be done by the end of the month. The Engineer said the state has funds to reimburse the Village for a Risk Assessment Flash Study. The Village


Cont. From Cover Ellicottville superintendent, whose retirement takes effect June 30, 2017. In other news: A presentation was given from Ward, who said the state tax cap and mandated requirements leave educators “hoops to jump through” when putting together a

would hire Nussbaumer and Clarke to assess the safety of the electrical equipment in the upgraded treatment plant. Mr. Dobmeier reported that the infrastructure information that had been logged into the new Toughbook laptop had been accidentally deleted. However, one of the engineers had a backup of the info on a flash drive and restored most of the data. There was a discussion about using cloud storage as a backup in the future. The department reports were accepted as submitted. Snow Removal Trustee Wilkens oversees the Village’s sidewalks and said the Village needs a sidewalk maintenance policy. He said Washington Street from Jefferson to Tops is in good shape, but some of the side streets are not. It was mentioned that some business owners maintain the sidewalks in front of their businesses, and others do not. It was pointed out that is it illegal for anyone to shovel or plow snow into the streets. Mayor Burrell said the Village has employees performing snow removal (the sidewalk plow) from about 4:30am until 12:30pm. From then on, snow removal is up to storeowners. He said, “We need a partnership with downtown businesses to take care of the streets.” Burrell added the Village had just bought a pallet of ice melt and was willing to give it to store owners. Trustee Wilkens said he would go door to door with bags of ice melt asking storeowners to keep the sidewalks clear. He said,

“We need to deal (with snow removal) on a partnership basis.” Multitude of Variances David and Andria Anderson addressed the board with concerns they have about the house under construction at 35 West Washington. They said the home is being built next to theirs and is only 7’4” away from their home. Furthermore, it is two stories tall and the lot it sits on was built up about 18” making the home unreasonably tall. Mr. Anderson said he had reviewed the building plans and permits and found a “multitude of variances” approved by the Code Enforcement Officer. They are waiting on a report from Mr. Abriatis regarding the variance granted. Mr. Anderson said the structure has had “tangible impacts” on their home. He said they “can’t see Ellicottville anymore.” The couple said the new home has cut off the sunlight from the windows on the southern side of their home, resulting in higher heating bills. There is a large icicle hanging from the home’s roof directly over their ski locker. Andria Anderson said the second-floor window on the new home looks directly into their bedroom window. The Andersons said on at least three occasions there had been opportunities for notification regarding the construction, but they had received nothing. They said the first time they heard about the house was when they received a text from a friend in September. The Mayor thanked the couple for attending the meeting.

budget that is then voted on by the public. Ward said work on the upcoming school budget has begun. “It will be difficult,” he said, adding state revenues are not expected to be favorable. There will be an upcoming assembly from High School Principal Robert Miller about what he is planning regarding keeping youth safe in the digital age. He said about five agencies, including law enforcement, are expected

to speak to students about everything from cyberbullying to inappropriate behavior on the Internet or phone. He said the dangers of pictures, what they can lead to and when pictures they post can still be found by law enforcement will all be topics of discussion. Both Miller and Elementary Principal Connie Poulin agreed they also have concerns about computer-based testing for students.

Harley Day : January 21st, 2017 : Holiday Valley Resort

Tea Shop and Cafe

Union Tea Shop and Tea Cafe Opened January 2nd, Olean

Tea time is coming to Olean. Union Tea Cafe and Tea Shop officially opens to the public at 7:30 a.m. Jan. 2. The cafe is located on the first floor of Olean Business Development’s headquarters at 301 N. Union St. The boutique eatery brings something unique to the Olean area. “The tea industry is something that’s booming right now,” said owner and founder Amy Sherburne. “When I’ve traveled, I’ve been to a lot of cafes where all they focus on is tea. There really isn’t anything like that in the Olean area, and we’re happy to give people an option for something different.” Taking center stage at Union Tea is an expansive selection of loose tea — everything from traditional favorites such as Earl Grey and varieties of green teas

to rarer blends such as Dragonwell, Gunpowder and Silver Needle. All teas sold at Union Tea Cafe will be on display with samples available for customers to smell and inspect. In addition, the cafe will sell Utopian Coffee and have iced teas available. Working with Union Tea staff, customers can also develop their own custom blends of tea. Union Tea will offer a breakfast menu boasting baked goods, bagels, a signature waffle sandwich, and fresh-baked scones among other choices. For lunch and dinner, the cafe’s menu will feature homemade soups, sandwiches, farm-totable salads with house-made dressings, and daily specials. “Our full menu is up on our website, and one of the great things our site allows people to do is order online,”

Sherburne said. “People can also purchase gift cards through the site and have them text messaged or emailed to who they want to give them to.” At 2 p.m. each day, Union Tea will offer a “High Tea” service. “Just like the High Teas in London, we’ll offer a variety of small sandwiches, a quiche or hash brown bake, sweets and confectionaries, and a pot of tea, of course,” Sherburne said. “We’ll have a different baked good each day for the high tea, which will be something we come up with to keep variety. We think it will be a wonderful experience for less than $30 for two people.” Union Tea will maintain regular business hours from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m Mondays through Thursdays; 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Fridays; 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays; and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays. It will also be open for special events. “We’re very eager to open up and welcome in the community. A lot of people are excited for this and we’ve had a lot of great conversations with people about their favorite types of tea,” Sherburne said. “Tea is really a part of people’s lives.” For more information on Union Tea Cafe, visit www. or call 716-701-4014.

Beat on the Street: What Celebrity Do You Think You Look Like?

By Chad Neal Celebrity, what a concept. To be recognized just about everywhere you go, whether adored or despised. So many famous people in so many roles and again our country is relying on a celebrity to run our show. The irony of this is all of the fans of our new celebrity president are showing the rest of the world that America is obsessed with celebrity. Another irony of this whole thing is that when the actors are working they are pretending to be other people. And the fact that many people idolize famous people makes it a strange cycle that really goes unnoticed. With the social media bandwagon celebrities are mocked, adored, bashed and loved by those with opinions. But to be a famous person one has to realize that being rated, however, is all part of the game. One thing that is a neat occurrence is when someone resembles a person of distinction. There have been stories about prominence finding look-a-likes to take their place and to otherwise thwart unwanted notoriety. Most people have been told they look like someone famous. What celebrity do you think you look like?

Spencer M.- The tennis player Novak Djovovic.

Bob O.- The late Chris Farley of SNL fame.

Kelsey K.Campbell...or Winehouse.

Artwork at the Library Artwork at the Library – currently we have artwork in our gallery area that was created by Ellicottville Central School students. We have a variety of Laural Burch cats designed by the 2nd graders, radial designs by the fifth graders, and fish bowls by the 1st graders. In addition, the Studio Art class used blocks of wood to showcase their talents. Come check out these interesting pieces of art. A special “thank you” to the art teacher, Lillian Lechner, for sharing her student’s creations.
