HM Summer Projects CCIDA Signs Off on Several Projects for HoliMont Story by John Thomas Staff Writer

HoliMont Developments Dave Riley from HoliMont was on hand for the monthly meeting of the CCIDA to give details on several projects HoliMont will be working on over the summer. But first he gave some details on the WestMont Ridge development. He said work on the project is “well underway” with grading for the roads and installation of the sewer and water pipes making good progress. He said they anticipate working out a deal with a developer to build the condo units in several stages. Getting back to the summer projects, Riley talked about several they have planned. He said the installation of

the new quad chair last summer had taken a lot of time, and that some projects were held over for this summer. The projects include: replacing some of the air and water lines to some of the snow making guns, rebuilding a generator, some lift house renovations, and bathroom renovations in the main lodge. He said one project had been on the books for some time, but now they were “finally going to do it.” The plan is to build a “warming hut” at the top of the Cascade Chair. The hut was inspired by the Yellowstone Club in Montana, an exclusive millionaires club with members like Bill Gates and Oprah Winfrey. The See CCIDA page 9

Kicking off the weekend will be the Maria Aurigema Band, her name means “golden gem” in Italian, performing at Balloons Friday at 7:00pm. Maria started guitar lessons at the age of eight. At thirteen she discovered Led Zeppelin, and took up guitar in earnest. Being the only girl in school who could really wail on a guitar

cemented her passion. She studied jazz in Buffalo with Stu Weissman and lists as her influences Pat Metheny and John McLaughlan. Over the years she has played with Jimmy Thackery, Tommy Castro, Kenny Neal, and Coco Montoya. See BLUES page 7

By Wally Holland- To Bob McCarthy and Hushie Dunn: I’d just like to say a few words of thanks to Bob and Hushie,

it’s no great surprise when an Irishman holds a fundraiser at a pub, of course, but for Bob, I imagine it actually works the other way ‘round’. He’s a fellow who sees a night at the pub as another chance to give back to the village. The occasion is about doing right by the people who went before, seeing that they get a proper place to rest, but it’s also about making Ellicottville a little more beautiful for the people here in the village this very night – and for those who haven’t found Ellicottville yet, but will someday.

Owner, West Long, with his sons, thank a wide group of people for making the opening of Good Times of Olean a reality Thursday, July 18. In attendance were State Senator Catherine M. Young and Olean Mayor, Linda Witte.

By Chris Chapman OLEAN -- Looking for that place to go for a game of corn hole? How about a euchre tournament? After a ribbon cutting last Thursday, July 18, that and so much more is now available to those in the area. Good Times has come to Olean. Situated next to a longdeserted putt-putt golf course the new $8 million, 40,000 square foot facility constructed by Long Consulting owner, West Long, with some help by Todd Scott, boasts of a 16-lane AMF bowling alley, complete with state of the art electronic scoring. Have a hard time following your turn? With this system your face can be part of the video scoreboard. The facility is also home to an arcade, three restaurants and an events center, and employs over 150 full-and part-time people, even bringing a few back to their roots. “Our bar manager is from Bolivar,” West Long, owner of the facility, said. “She was working up in the Buffalo area. We were able to bring her home and offer her a place to work.” According to one dignitary, the facility has attracted a lot of attention around the area, as any building its size would, but according to one

of the dignitaries at the ribbon cutting, it goes beyond the Olean area. “The buzz around the Western New York region has been this place, Good Times of Olean,” State Senator Catherine M. Young (R - 57th District) said. “we are always looking to enhance the quality of life in our area and I think this is going to be the right thing to do it.” Olean Mayor, Linda Witte, said the existence of such a project is exactly what was envisioned when the East State Street refurbishing was planned and started to take shape. “[Council President] Ann McLaughlin and I were telling people that, if we fixed the street, something good is going to happen,” she said. “This is the start of a lot of good things.” One of the biggest focuses for the project, according to Long, has been a family atmosphere; something that is a place families can come to together and have fun. That goal may be in reach with beach volleyball courts, batting cages, a game room, corn hole, kan jam and many other recreational activities. Several league possibilities exist as well. Darts, pool, cards and many other ideas abound, he said.

Bowlers can go to the Snak Shak for a pizza, burger or any other food expected in a bowling facility. If bowlers, or event-goers of any kind, are looking for a bit more a substantial meal, a trip to the Hammer Back Bar and Grill is in order. The Hammer Back has the feel of a saloon. It offers customers a chance to sit and have a signature burger, one of which bears the same name as the restaurant, Hammer Back. One of the things that makes this area special, according to developer, Todd Scott, is the mezzanine that overlooks the events center, just off the bar and grill area. The mezzanine is also an adult game area, he said, housing ping pong tables, dart boards, pool tables and card tables. From the overlook, customers can look one way and watch the bowling lanes. A view over the other side gives way to the 1,400 person events center. The center can be used for concerts, indoor sporting events in the winter, expos, proms and several other uses, Barie said. As the facility opened, the space was being set up for regional blues artists to celebrate the opening, as well as a performance by Country Music star, Keith Anderson. Anderson performed to a full house Saturday, July 20. According to personnel of The Point, situated right next to the events center, the insulation and double door entrance way eliminated nearly all of the sound coming from the show. The sound dampening is a benefit for those that are looking for a quality dining facility, even while a raucous concert, or other event, is going on next to the restaurant. If the Bar and Grill is not quite what is sought for a meal, The Point, a mid to upscale steak and seafood restaurant, brings guests into the historic side of the Olean, Portville and Allegany area with historic pictures, to include an aerial image of Bradner Stadium and the, at the time, newly constructed ball fields of Forness Park. Visitors to the site can expect to pay $3.50 per game for bowling, with a $2 shoe rental. A round of 18 holes on the putt-putt course, one that could be found at some of the best places in Florida, according to Barie, will cost $3 a person. To spend some time in the batting cages will cost $3.

CCB Sponsors “Back To School Supply Drive”

Program Developed To Provide Safe Heating For Senior Citizens In Area

Family Game Night

Vendors Wanted

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

help to ensure that children receive the five resources they need: 1. An ongoing relationship with a caring adultmentor; 2. Access to safe places & structured activities during non-school hours; 3. A healthy start; 4. A marketable skill through effective education; 5. An opportunity to give back through community service.

As July winds down and we just experienced another wonderful festival weekend, The Americana Folk Art and Music Fair, we now look forward to The Ellicottville Jazz & Blues Festival, which is organized by our Chamber of Commerce and will take place r this weekend. The weather, at t this time, looks OK, which will s further enhance the FUN created n by the music of this neat event. s Before we get started and like f we mention every week, the golf , in and around Ellicottville is y great.

THURSDAY our week’s music parade begins with two bands and a DJ. First at 7:00 PM The Town Park Gazebo will have The Lake Effect Men’s A’ Cappella Chorus on stage. Here we have an all male professional group, made up of five guys from Western New York, who love to create music with out the use of any instruments. They mimic instruments and drums to make the song sound like what you expect to hear. However, it is all done with their voices. This will be a neat show. Then at 8:00 PM Thursday Margaretville move’s to The Gin Mill with the return of Scott Kirby. Scott will be performing his brand of Costal inspired Folk Rock or if you wish Beach Rock. Scott is expanding his popularity across the country with his story telling style of song writing and humor, which will make this Thursday Evening Gin Mill Show one you, will not want to miss. Then at 9:00 PM Thursday, The PUB in Great Valley will have DJ Felony and his Karaoke Show returning to entertain their patrons. As always, the attendees will have two options. Be part of the show or just enjoy the FUN times this gig creates.

Blues & Jazz fest weekend kicks off at 7:00 PM Friday evening in Balloons with The Maria Aurigema Band. Maria is one of the most talented original blues singers and guitarist we’ve seen here in Ellicottville. She has performed here several times in the last couple of years. Her show is always excellent and very Bluzey. Following Maria Aurigema, DJ Flakey Frank will be in Balloons Sound Booth with his party promo skills on display. His skills include danceable tunes and off the wall chitt/chatt till close. Scott Kirby returns to The Gin Mill at 9;00 PM Friday for his second gig of Margaretville in Ellicottville.

Moving to SATURDAY of The Jazz & Blues Fest weekend, an eight band and one DJ afternoon and evening. It all begins at 1:00 PM Saturday in two locations. First The Monroe Street Stage will have Mark Mazur & The Little Big Band featuring vocalist Lori Jacobs Crawford. From this neat band’s bio, you will hear a bluzie jazz mix that will have the audience swaying to the beat. Also at 1:00 PM, The Ellicottville Brewing Company will have The Fredonia Student Modern Jazz Quartet on stage in their Beer Garden. What we know of this quartet is they are undergraduate music students from SUNY Fredonia that perform a contemporary to modern jazz show in a unique style that makes for very good listening. Then at 6:00 PM Saturday Balloons will host a performance by New Jersey Guitarist/ Composer B.D. Lenz. From his web site B.D.

Like last night, they will include FUN & danceable tunes and all-ages’ friendly chitt/ chatt till close. Returning to 7:00 PM Saturday The Silver Fox Steak House will have The LTM Trio doing their rendition of Jazzy acoustic tunes. This Olean trio plays to desires of the venue they are performing in. This being Blues/ Jazz weekend, we may expect to hear that type of a mix. Another FUN music night is on the way to The Fox this Saturday. Then at 8:00 PM Saturday, Hoagy & The Blues Bombers will take the stage in Madigans Up-Stairs Party Bar. Here we have a twenty plus year veteran band from Buffalo playing everything from jazzy blues to down right dirty blues. This will be another interesting and FUN gig in Madigans this Saturday.

the Blues Bombers, you know you’re going to hear some serious hard driving blues. It was Elvis singing You Ain’t Noth’n but a Hound Dog who instilled a love of music in Hoagy de la Plante. It took Hoagy two years to convince his father to buy him a guitar, but when it happened a career was born. By thirteen Hoagy has his own band and was playing his first gigs. In the 1990’s Hoagy formed Hoagy and the Blues Bombers, and they have been known as Buffalos “up-town blues band” ever since. They will be playing at Madigans Saturday night from 8pm until midnight. Virtuoso is a word that gets used around the Speedy Parker Blues Band a lot. Since coming onto the Buffalo music scene in 1999, the distinctively different styling of their blues has made them a favorite of blues lovers everywhere. The members of the band share lead and rhythm parts because each of them is good enough to be front man. Their music list comes from the likes of BB King, John Lee Hooker, Eric Clapton, ZZ Top, and Muddy Waters. Here them at the Gin Mill Saturday (time TBA). The main point of the

Mojo Blues Band is to get five great musicians together and have a great time playing the blues. Their dynamite lead vocals, tight ensemble playing, inspired improvisation, and pocket grooves, provide an engaging, highly danceable, and fun groove. No wonder the Buffalo News called the band “blistering.” They will be rocking the new brewing tanks at the Ellicottville Brewing Company Saturday starting at 10pm. Performing and recording for over 25 years, Mick Hayes is the living example of what contemporary Blues and R&B sounds like today. His Mick Hayes Band will be bringing their blend of rocken and soulful blues to the Monroe Street outdoor stage. In 2011 Mick was named to the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame, in recognition not only for his solo work, but for his outstanding band as well. The open-air venue will be the perfect spot for the bands unique sound. Catch them Sunday afternoon from 1 to 4pm. For more information on all the weekend’s music see Robby and Sherman Wilkens’ entertainment column on page 7.

December 14, 1949; lead vocal, rhythm guitar) and Teddy Gentry (b. January 22, 1952; vocals, bass) form the core of Alabama. Owen and Gentry grew up on separate cotton farms on Lookout Mountain in Alabama, but the pair learned how to play guitar together; the duo also had sung in church together before they were six years old.

in funding requests, with only about $450,000 expected to be available to the region which includes Cattaraugus, Chautauqua and Allegany Counties. Zink says the top five ranked projects have a good chance of being funded. However, the top six ranked projects are invited to submit a final application. On Thursday July 18th, seven sponsors gave presentations of their projects to the Southern Tier West Board. Based upon pre-applications and the presentations, the Board made their final recommendations. The Southern Tier West Board is recommending six projects for funding as follows: Improve Economic Viability of Small-Sized Manufacturers The first proposal is for $100,000 in Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) funding for a Board- sponsored project, the goal of which is to improve the economic viability, productivity and competitiveness of small and medium-sized manufacturers, of less than 250 employees. The program will be marketed through the Industrial Development Agencies, which will contact businesses in a three-county area. That’s

hut will be very simple, heated with a fireplace, and will have limited food service: soups, sandwiches, and soft drinks. The request to the CCIDA was for sales tax abatement for the various projects totaling $401,954. Ontario Knife Company The CCIDA also reviewed the final SEQR (State d Environmental Quality s : Review) resolution for the t Ontario Knife Company. The s company wants to acquire a n five-acre parcel in Franklinville. d The parcel includes an existing s 75,000 square foot building. f They intend to remove part of : the building and add on a new n f :

according to Ginger Malak, Senior Regional Development Coordinator for Southern Tier West. Equestrian Trail System Another recommendation seeks $93,449 from the ARC toward Phase IV of the Equestrian Trail System in Chautauqua County. The goal is creation of an equestrian trail network to generate increased entrepreneurial activity and job opportunities, strengthen the local and regional economy through diversification, and build on the natural assets of the region. Expanding JCC’s Criminal Justice Program Also receiving a recommendation is a $125,516 ARC funding request from Jamestown Community College, to expand the college’s Criminal Justice program to provide a strong forensic laboratory component that replicates real-life crime investigation experiences. JCC says program graduates will benefit, as will current law enforcement employees. Strengthen Quality of Health Care Practices A Southern Tier West Board project proposes to strengthen primary health care practices’ quality of care, through the implementation of the National Committee on Quality Assured Patient Centered Medical Home 2011 standards. The request is for $25,000 in ARC funding. The program will assist doctors streamline their offices for

better care, for example with keeping electronic records, according to Malak. She notes that the Olean Medical Group is very involved with the project. Sustainable Food Education The Southern Tier West Board is also recommending a request from Belfast Central School in Allegany County, to expand the school’s Aquaponics program, providing new areas of student research. Aquaponics is defined as a sustainable food production system that involves aquaculture or the raising of aquatic animals such as snails and fish, combined with hydroponics, or the cultivation of plants in water. ARC funding would be $28,737. Arts Business Incubator at SUNY Fredonia The final project recommendation is from C-PACE at SUNY Fredonia, for establishment of an arts business incubator. The goal is to increase the capacity of artists to operate more efficiently and effectively, and to nurture new arts or creativeenterprise businesses, thereby strengthening the creative economy and supporting tourism in Chautauqua County. This project is seeking $486,166 from the ARC. Zink says that in September, the project final applications will be forwarded to the New York State Department of State for the next level of review. Submission to the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) will follow.

25,000 square foot addition. They will be turning the building into a facility for manufacturing high carbon stainless steel cutlery. The company is requesting certain exemptions from certain sales and use taxes, property taxes and other taxes in order to build the facility. The resolution for Ontario Knife was approved. Executive Report: In his Executive Directors report Corey Wiktor reported that due to the various projects the CCIDA was involved with during 2012, between 70 and 100 Full-time new jobs have been created in Cattaraugus County. He noted three projects in Ellicottville alone account for much of this growth. Wiktor also reported that job retention in the county was high last year as well. He reported on the Start-Up New York program coming out of the governor’s office. The program creates

sales and property tax incentives for companies to move onto state owned properties or SUNY campuses around the state. The idea is to create business development areas within a mile of SUNY campuses, where students could receive on-the-job training. Wiktor announced that Cuba Cheese Shop is opening in the restored brick building in the Quik-Fill complex (a 2012 adaptive re-use project). He said he has been having many conversations with businesses, trying to convince them to move to New York. He said there are numerous impediments to businesses moving into the state, among them are: regulations, high property taxes, income taxes, and workman’s comp rules. Mr. Wiktor said he spends a lot if his time showing companies how CCIDA can help “level the playing field,” for companies considering the move.

Architectural Spotlight of Ellicottville The Perfect Log Cabin

Story and photos By John Thomas Staff Writer If Ellicottville is considered a great adventure town: skiing, cross country and down hill, mountain biking, the Sky High Adventure Park, then this must be the perfect adventure home. Set on 19+ wooded acres, with trails for hiking and mountain biking, and close to all the sports the town provides, this home would be perfect for the adventure minded family. But, unlike so many log cabins that are dark, dingy, and remind you why the phrase “roughing it” contains the word rough. This home is bright, cheery, and melds country living with modern sophistication. Natural

woods abound throughout the home and are showcased in the great room. The Brazilian Teak hardwood floors throughout the first floor set off the fieldstone hearth for the Vermont Casting wood burning stove. Just off the great room is the master bedroom. Looking up past the exposed beams, the high ceiling peaks over the upstairs loft. The loft can sleep six or more and has its own bath. The kitchen the stainless steel appliances are a counterpoint to the oak cabinets and granite counter tops. A stacked washer and dryer and a full bath with a granite counter top are here as well. Step past them and out to the threeseason porch. It’s a light airy room, perfect for relaxing in the evening and entertaining.

Outside is a 2-story barn for stowing ATVs, snowmobiles, bikes and ski gear. There is a covered storage for wood and a spot for having campfires. All your wood can come from your land. You couldn’t ask for a quieter get-away spot for raising a family of Daniel Boons. All together the home will sleep 8+ and provide a great spot to entertain. With nearly twenty acres of land with trails through the forest, you may not need to go to town to have a great adventure. For more information on this home, and an Open House here on Saturday, August 3rd from 1 to 4 p.m., contact Melanie Pritchard Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker at ERA Team VP Real Estate, 716-480-8409.

Clockwise: 1. Nestled in the woods, this log cabin offers plenty of modern conveniences. 2. The dining area is just off the kitchen, and the computer desk in the background. 3. The sleeping loft will sleep four to six people. 4. The cozy master bedroom is on the main floor.

(Pictured left to right) 1. The great room is warmed by the wood burning stove. You can see the exposed beams leading to the loft. 2. The kitchen floor has the same hardwood floors found throughout the main level. The modern appliances blend with the oak cabinets. 3. The screened in porch offers three seasons of extra entertaining space.

Lucille Ball Comedy Festival; “Live From Jamestown” to Record 8/1-8/3

“Getting these album tracks out is a great way to let the world know about the comedy coming out of Jamestown,” said Journey Gunderson, executive director of the Lucy Desi Center for Comedy. “Ball wanted her hometown to be a place of celebration for all things comedy.”

The Lucille Ball Comedy Festival has released its finalized line-up, including the announcement of 16 rising comedians from across the country whose performances will be recorded for the live album “Live from Jamestown: The Lucille Ball Comedy Festival”. The album will be recorded in the Tropicana Room during Comedy Late Night, 10:30pm August 1, 2 and 3, and is co-produced by Rooftop Comedy. Comedians performing during the recording include Jackie Kashian, Myq Kaplan, Harrison Greenbaum, Cy Amundson, Keith Alberstadt, Joe Machi, Kelly Collette, Josh Gondelman, Jim Tews, Mark Normand, Andy Sandford, Andy Hendrickson, Calise Hawkins, Andi Smith, Kelly MacFarland, and Sean Keane. These comics’ credits include Comedy Central, Conan, Letterman, Fallon, Ferguson, Last Comic Standing, and awards including CMT’s Next Big Comic and the Andy Kaufman Award. “Rooftop Comedy is proud to co-produce these showcases as

well as the first-ever live album from Lucy Fest,” said Dominic Del Bene, managing producer of Rooftop Comedy Productions. “We’ve been working with the festival for years now and are thrilled to see the caliber of talent that comes to Jamestown to celebrate the memory of Lucille Ball every summer. The album is going to feature some of our favorite comics and we look forward to sharing it with the world later this year!” While Comedy Late Night includes adult and “blue,” uncensored material, the album product will include the cleaner portions of sets. The live album will be available on iTunes, Pandora, Sirius/XM, Spotify and wherever hilarious mp3s are sold. CDs will be available at the Lucy Desi Museum, the LucyDesi online store and Amazon. com. Space is limited to 90 seats each night. “Getting these album tracks out is a great way to let the world know about the comedy coming out of Jamestown,” said Journey Gunderson, executive director of the Lucy Desi Center for Comedy. “Ball wanted her hometown to be a place

of celebration for all things comedy.” The Lucille Ball Comedy Festival will also feature a Pandora Comedy™ ‘Comics to Watch’ showcase on August 1, hosted by Tammy Pescatelli, a fan-favorite from the 2012 Lucille Ball Comedy Festival. This 8pm show will be “cable clean” and feature Keith Alberstadt, Joe Machi, Cy Amundson, and Jackie Kashian. Previously announced headline acts include Bill Engvall, Kathleen Madigan, the GIs of Comedy, the leads from the hit touring stage show I Love Lucy® Live on Stage, and Lucy Radio Comedy Live Onstage directed by Gregg Oppenheimer, son of I Love Lucy creator, Jess Oppenheimer. Lucy Radio Comedy Live Onstage will be performed in the style of old-time radio, complete with actors standing at microphones on stage, sound effect, and performances by the Jamestown Harmony Express. Featured performers include Richard Lambert, Margo Davis, Len Tobin, Lee John, Corinne Fredrickson, Vince Joy Jr., Dan Scapelitte, Floyd Moore, Mike Nichols, and Colleen Schwanekamp. The festival will also feature daily festivities at the newlyrenovated art deco train station including beer and wine, a live auction featuring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz estate memorabilia and a wardrobe of high-end designer fashion (Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Manolo Blahnik, Prada and Dior) donated by Young & the Restless star Melody Thomas Scott, appearances by Lucille Ball’s 25-year personal secretary Wanda Clark, hometown bus tours, comedy workshops, latin dance and conga classes, grapestomping, conveyer belt candywrapping from iconic I Love Lucy episodes and much more. Tickets for the album recordings and all shows are available by visiting, or calling the Lucy Desi Center for Comedy at (716)484-0800.

Enjoy one of the fastest growing wine festivals in the Northeast! Filled with wine, food, music, crafters and fun! What began in 2007 by William Merritt of Merritt Estate Winery, the America’s Grape Country Wine Festival has bloomed into a wine industry cornerstone in Western New York. Dozens of wineries from across New York State travel to the area to sample and sell their best-selling wines to consumers from the tri-state, twin-tier region. Joined by artisan food producers, handmade craft vendors and several sponsors, the wineries proudly display their products that (in many cases) have spent decades in the making! The festival was first held in 2008. Thousands of visitors have attended through the years and thousands were pleased! New to the festival in 2011 was a headline concert in the grandstands of the Chautauqua County Fairgrounds featuring Sean Patrick McGraw and Uncle Kracker! Over 1,500 people gathered to hear the national performer’s belt out popular songs from the radio under the bright lights. In 2012,
