Every year, The American Cancer Society puts on an event, a walk, called, “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer”. All over the country, thousands of communities come together and raise money in an effort to honor survivors and raise awareness. This year’s walk is being held in Jamestown, NY at Jamestown Community College on Sunday, October 20, 2013 at 10:00 am. New Stage By ASound llison Martin New Menu • Great Music!

It’s that time of year again: Breast Cancer Awareness month. Our valleys, layered with the colors of a crisp autumn air, are also decorated with shades of pink in shop windows, products, and football socks. With a disease that affects so many of us, this is a time of recognition, as well as a unified push for a cure. It is our job as a community, and a nation, to show support and fight

against a disease that claims thousands of lives each year. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women, and about 1 in 8 U.S. women (just under 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Every year, The American Cancer Society puts on an event, a walk, called, “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer”. All over the country, thousands of communities come together and raise money in an

Ellicottville Central School In Good Financial Order By Sharon Turano Although the Ellicottville Central School District has a nearly $200,000 deficit, it will enter the upcoming year on a good financial note. That was the report of auditors, RA Mercer and Co. during a Tuesday Ellicottville Board of Education meeting. After reviewing the school’s finances for the year ending June 30, 2013, auditors reported the district made $9.8 million in revenues,

High Tea Event, Fashion Show and More this Saturday

Visitors Returning to E’Ville Will Find Exciting Changes By Sharon Turano According to Mayor Charlie Coolidge and Town Supervisor John Burrell, the differences they find will be for the better. “We’ve been extremely busy,” said Burrell. Some of the activity in the town, he said, includes replacing the highway maintenance garage. Burrell said the former garage was built in 1950, when smaller equipment was common. A new $1 million “stateof-the-art” facility that includes lifts and storage has replaced the former one, he said, adding it will be more efficient, safer and more functional. Burrell said Tim Horton’s bought the

The new Kwik-Fill is also the site of a new Cuba Cheese shop, and the Sprague Development site now features the bowling alley, fitness shop, pizza shop and barber shop. The addition to the Ellicottville Brewing Company is “outstanding,” sited Mayor Coolidge.

Fall Fest Recap

Ellicottville’s Largest Event is in the Books for Another Year

Another climax of the year for Ellicottville has come and gone. The annual Fall Festival that brings in tens of thousands of visitors was welcomed with ideal weather. As early birds arrived earlier in the week the hustle and bustle of the weekend was imminent. Tents started being raised and vendors started arriving as well. And Friday started the festival as enthusiasts got out of work and started heading to Ellicottville and one thing that is a constant every year is the

short of projections; it spent $10 million, leaving a $192,874 deficit attributable to a $16,410 revenue loss in the cafeteria and expenses they said were out of the district’s control. Those expenses stemmed from more special education student costs, a retirement and more. In fact, said Superintendent Mark Ward, the district spent less than it did in 2008/2009. He said he was glad fiscally-conservative  board members put money away to weather such a storm without cuts having to be made to education. In other news, the board reported changes made to the capital project include more gym seats and a larger

Submitted By Sue Young Four years ago, a friend of mine reminded me about the dream I had once confided in her. “It is time” she said, “to follow that dream”. It was then that I began a journey with her by my side. She was suffering from breast cancer and as a survivor myself, it was important to us to do this together. So our first fundraiser was for Susan G. Koleman Foundation. The following year, we had decided to work with The National Breast Cancer Foundation to help find a “cure”. What a hard chapter it turned out to be in my life as Bev’s cancer had progressed and I was losing my friend. I decided to continue on and dedicated the day in honor of Bev. It was only 5 days after the fundraiser that Beverly Frank lost her life to breast cancer.

effort to honor survivors and raise awareness. This year’s walk is being held in Jamestown, NY at Jamestown Community College on Sunday, October 20, 2013 at 10:00 am. Make sure to sign up, online, at www. makingstrides.acsevents.org. Walkers are encouraged to organize teams, to spread support, but if you’d prefer to fly solo and walk as an individual, you are more than welcome to. Last year alone, over a million walkers across the nation

walked in various Making Strides walks, and raised over 60 million dollars to fund education, research, and support. The money that is raised is used to help people understand screening tests, develop prevention and become educated in early detection. For those who are being currently affected by Breast Cancer, The American Cancer Society uses donations to provide transportation to and from treatments, free lodging for those who are forced to travel great distances for a cure, emotional support programs and “Look Good… Feel Better”, which is a program consisting of workshops that teach beauty techniques to female cancer patients to help with and overcome the appearance-related side effects of the necessary treatments. Whether you are a survivor, a supporter, a business, an educator or a volunteer, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is an event that is both productive and rewarding. This is an event where community members unite to fight breast cancer and save the lives that are affected, both present and future. It is the area’s largest breast

backed up traffic lining Route 219 for several miles north of the town. The new Tim Horton’s on the corner of 242 and 219 was a new sight for a lot of the people arriving from the north as they officially opened last Friday. Friday also saw the bars filling up with thirsty Fall Festivalers as they started out the marathon of imbibing and the food court on Jefferson Street opened up at six until ten for hungry folks. Saturday started out as 250 vendors set up their city of tents See RECAP page 9

Student Council Making an Impact; Many Great Things to Come!

By Olivia Venezia Another short week for our students may be quiet a relief, but in fact many important things are coming up in the school through the student council. This group is quite active in school throughout the year, including taking care of many of the students’ voices as well as taking care of funding for many things. They do many fundraisers throughout the year but perhaps the biggest one is

the fall fruit sale. Starting on October 28th, the student council members will be taking orders for apples, oranges and grapefruit.  This sale is one that generally brings in substantial revenue for the council, and the fruit is delicious! Ordering can be done through student council members and through the newsletter. They will not be accepting orders through the Internet this year. Another important student council function is red ribbon week, which is coming up soon on October 23-31. This year’s theme is “Team Up Against Drugs”. One of the activities planned is an door decorating contest in the elementary school, where the younger kids get to set up elaborate drug-free displays on the door to their classrooms. They always have a blast with this. In addition, the 28th will be the ‘Wear Red’ day and the ‘Team Up Against Drugs’ shirt day will be the 29th, the high school will have an assembly during

these days. The student council will be hosting the Middle School Halloween dance on October 25. This is one of the dances the students enjoy the most as they get to showcase their awesome costumes. The price for the dance, which is open to seventh and eighth graders, is $5, or if you wear your costume, $3. These events are important things to the school, and participation in these events is what keeps us going. Ordering fruit, participating in dances and pledging to be drug free are things that the council sponsors year after year which impacts the school and students, so being involved in these things has a positive impact on our school and our community. Have a wonderful week students and try to check out some of the great things the student council is offering in the up coming weeks, as they are what keeps the school going for such lovely students.

My name is Cassandra and I need your help!

I’m a 26 year old full time student who is about to undergo dialysis. I was diagnosed with stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease in March of 2010. I am a patient at Cleveland clinic in Ohio and also ECMC in buffalo, New York. UPDATE: I am now on dialysis and have had to undergo 2 surgeries to get the PD tube to work. I’m 26 and I’d like to be able to have a family before its too late. I am Blood Type A - I recently had a donor get tested but due to some facts he was denied. I have no one in my family either willing or able to give me a kidney. I am scared that I will not live out my life especially going on dialysis and all i want is to go back to work. I currently suffer with extreme insomnia, I will be awake for 5 or more days before i finally crash. I have slept through school and that’s a very important part of my life. God bless anyone who is willing to save another persons life and I can honestly say that if I could do the same I would. Please contact me at: 716-720-5355 or cassandradelcamp@gmail.com

Santa Sheriff’s Program Santa Sheriff’s Program Kicks Off Tenth Year Of Giving!

Jolly Old St. Nick made an early visit to the Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office to meet with the Santa Sheriff’s Program Director Deputy Brian Keis to discuss the growing need for area families in the 2013 giving season. He was pleased to find that efforts have been ongoing this year with monthly raffle baskets and that letters will be going out to area businesses seeking local support through monetary donations. These donations will help the program purchase gifts for families in the community. The Santa Sheriff’s Program modeled after a similar initiative in Texas began in 2004 and has been steadily growing. Partnering agencies and schools raise funds and refer less fortunate Cattaraugus County families to the program. Gifts are purchased at area businesses. Youth and volunteers from area schools and other county

agencies wrap the gifts and package them for delivery. In 2004, the goal had been to serve five families; the program grew to 26 families in 2011 and 2012 providing a total of 114 men, women and children. These families were provided gifts, as well as a complete Christmas dinner, along with dry goods donated through the efforts of the staff and students at the Salamanca Middle School. The program hopes to raise the funds to provide Christmas to 40 families this year. As in the past years, the Sheriff’s Office has also pledged funding to the program through a donation from the Employees’ Association and the Supervisor Units, as well as receiving donations from area business and residents, in addition to the raffle baskets. Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Keis, Program Director, sees the Santa Sheriff’s Program as, “a way for us to give back to

the community”. Fundraising efforts continue to grow each year adding new partners. While the program is designed to provide Christmas gifts for area families, it also offers participants lessons in cooperation, volunteering and caring for others. This year the program is looking to raise nearly $10,000 so that the needs of area families can be met. Individuals interested in donating to this project may contact Sheriff Timothy Whitcomb at 938-9191 ext. 2247 or Deputy Brian Keis at 9389191 ext. 2899. Contributions can be made payable to the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation, c/o Deputy Brian Keis, Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office, 301 Court Street, Little Valley, New York 14755. Please indicate in the memo section “Santa Sheriff’s Program”. Together let’s make a families Christmas memorable.

The Pink Pumpkin Project

Locals Get Together To Raise Money For Patients With Breast Cancer

Pictured kneeling l-r Olivia Anzivine, Brynn Ackerman Standing l-r Parker Harris, Peter Harris, Noelle Anzivine, Al Anzivine, Lou Anzivine & Mary Pezzimenti

The project was started in remembrance of my sister-inlaw, Laurie Anzivine Ogle, who died of breast cancer 6 years ago this November. She was the most giving, loving and compassionate person who loved to bless others. IT IS OUR HONOR WE DEDICATE THIS PROJECT IN HER MEMORY. 

Last year my niece, Juliana & I were painting our pumpkins Pink . . .Auntie’s favorite color! When I came home, I asked my son, Lou to draw the breast cancer ribbon on it. He did and he suggested we do this, sell them and donate all the money to our family friend, Pearl Harris (who has breast cancer) who they were having a benefit for. My friends Kim Ackerman, her daughter Brynn, Pam Pezzimenti and her daughter Mary helped decorate also and we raised $250. By selling 25 pumpkins.  This year my friend Leslie Moffet and I met and decided we were going to take things a few steps further and decided to sell raffle tickets: for breast cancer wine glasses (done handmade by Shelby) pink ribbon crocheted hats (done by Jody’s emporium) I Believe in Pink (donated by Lou Anzivine) The his/hers combo pack black & Pink Dozier knife (donated by KABAR) 2 breast cancer ribbon cakes (donated by Kareli Cakes) and the breast cancer ribbon blanket (donated by myself, Olivia & Noelle Anzivine). The

drawings are October 26 and you still have time to get tickets at our Chamber of Commerce Office or at A Jason Clemons salon. We have sold 120 pumpkins this year with 100% of the proceeds going to 3 local women fighting breast cancer. We have been blessed with people sending monetary donations, materials as well as all the pumpkins being donated by PUMPKINVILLE, pleasant Valley Greenhouse & Millers Farm Market. We have had many people help sell, make and my special friend Jean Wright delivered many of them. Next year we look forward to continuing to do more pumpkins and have decided to hold the 1st Annual Pink Pumpkin Project Gala. We will be putting out more information on the Gala and if anyone is interested in volunteering please feel free to contact me at lynnanzivine2010@aol.com. We also have a Facebook page “The Pink Pumpkin Project”. With the Gala, we hope to be able to lighten the financial burden for even more women!

10th Annual Beer & Wine Festival : November 8-9th, 2013 : Holiday Valley


Bourbon Tasting

At E-Ville Spirits & Wines Saturday, October 19th At 7:00PM

d Tasting 5 from the Balcones s Distillery and a Corsair Quinoa e Whiskey s Texas Single Malt Whisky ---- A unique style of malt s whisky — Texas made, Texas s proud. Balcones Texas Malt g Whisky is born of hundreds n of years of distilling tradition g transformed by a deep sense of s place. Mellow notes of sautéed g pears and ripe fruit mixed , with a lingering toasty malt & character. We are very excited that this whisky which we have p worked so hard to produce is d finally ready to release. We f hope you enjoy it. Brimstone --- Purification through fire — a Texas oak d e fire, that is. Rather than using d Scottish peat smoke, this onek of-a-kind whisky is smoked l with sun-baked Texas scrub n oak using our own secret e process. The result is a whisky g full of fresh youthful corn and e light fruit notes married with a . bold smokiness. Brimstone is e the world‘s first wood smoked . whisky ... a Texas campfire in e a bottle. Balcones Rumble is l

made from the finest local wildflower honey, mission figs, turbinado sugar and natural Texas Hill Country spring water and aged to perfection in small oak barrels. Rumble defies categorization, both in ingredients as well as the final product. It has elements reminiscent of tequila, scotch, young cognac and rum. Baby Blue is a unique corn whisky made from atole, a roasted blue corn meal. Baby Blue isn’t bourbon nor white lightning. It has the freshness and verve of traditional corn whisky but with a refined complexity. The result is a round nuttiness and roasty overtones with a smooth finish. Baby Blue was the first Texas whisky on the market since prohibition, and is the only craft-made whisky to have received a 5-star rating from F. Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal other than Balcones “1” Texas Single Malt. True Blue --- Since the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897, ‘100 proof‘ has long stood for quality and authenticity.

True Blue 100 carries on that tradition. 100% of the whisky in this bottle was born, raised, and bottled at Balcones – from mash to glass. True Blue 100 retains the depth and complexity of over-proof spirits with the softer edges, supple textures and fuller fruitiness that slight dilution can bring. Rich notes of honeyed citrus, stone fruit and cinnamon and a rich, roasted corn palate. Perfect “as is” or with as much water as you prefer. Quinoa Whiskey --American whiskey pot distilled from quinoa and malted barley Quinoa is a South American grain crop grown for its seeds. Quinoa adds an earthy and nutty flavor to the whiskey. Quinoa seeds come in red, white, and black varieties. This whiskey uses red and white quinoa grains. * $10 fee to hold reservation ($10 fee goes towards your bourbon purchase) Please make reservations at the store; there is a limited space! RSVP 699-4474 or email E-Ville Spirits.

Mansfield Town Hall Mansfield Area Historical Society Offers Presentation

On October 17th, 7 PM at the Mansfield Town Hall, the Mansfield Area Historical Society offers a presentation “The Life of Josiah Hollister, a soldier of the American Revolution and Prisoner of War in Canada.” Marilyn Eddy Siperek will provide an overview of Josiah Hollister’s family history and his  life.   Glenn Sanders will offer readings from Josiah Hollister’s journal providing first hand information of his experiences as a continental soldier struggling during the War for American Independence.   In his heart wrenching journal, Hollister provides a glimpse into their lives of a prisoner of war and of a patriot before and after the

revolution. The presentation will include a brief genealogy of his Hollister family in America, offering insight regarding the making of a Patriot and of the mindset that led to the Revolution. Some of the local families known to have ties to the Hollister family are: In the Mansfield area, where the Hollisters and descendants resided beginning in 1821: Norton, Burroughs, Skeels, Eddy, Bowen. In the Franklinville/Machias area, where the Hollisters resided beginning in 1811: Phillips (also Olean),  Nelson, Jones, Chapman, Bullock, Kingsley, Easterly, Talbot, Ackley by marriage, as well as Coleman by marriage.

In the Great Valley, where the Hollisters resided beginning in 1816: Nelson, Norton. Key excerpts from Hollister’s journal will be read by Glen Sanders offering first hand accounts of the life of a member of a militia, capture by the enemy, transport to prison in Montreal, making his way home by foot after release, and his attempts to reunite with his family. Copies of his journal will be available with a donation fee before and after the presentation; please see Phyllis Krug. Please join us on October 17th at 7 PM at Mansfield Town Hall, 7691 Toad Hollow Rd.   Refreshments hosted by Marilyn Hintz.

Architectural Spotlight Story and photos By John Thomas Staff Writer

A Home for Every Season

Ask any realtor and they will tell you that no one likes to show or see a house in bad weather. On this dark day I expected the interior of this home to be rather dark. But upon entering I was surprised by the bright interior. The reason for it is obvious at a glance, the tall wall of south facing windows let in a cascade of bright cheery light even on this drab day. Just inside the front door is a mudroom with benches, and hooks for wet gear. At the far end of the great room are the windows. The view extends over a pear tree to the slopes at HoliMont. As great as the view is it has to compete for attention with the grand, fieldstone, wood-

burning fireplace. Overhead the knotty tongue and grove pine ceiling adds to the warm atmosphere. It ‘s a great choice, that ceiling, for it adds warmth to what could otherwise be a cold imposing great room. Opposite the fireplace is the kitchen. It takes advantage of the space to spread out and provide lots of cabinet and counter space. The oak cabinets blend well with the stone tile floor and the breakfast bar provides a quick eating spot for power mornings. The dining table is close to the windows and under a chandler that hangs from the ceiling high overhead. Wood framed sliding glass doors lead out to the deck. There is a bedroom and a full bath on this level. Upstairs in the loft is the master bedroom. It looks down

on the great room and across to the windows that frame the view. Down on the ground level is a family room, with the entertainment center. Off the family room are two bedrooms and a game room, large enough for a pool table. There is a spare room here as well as a full bath and the mechanical room with the laundry. Despite its small footprint and simple design this home packs in 2700 square feet of living space. And for a home in ski country this one is hard to beat. Close to the slopes in winter and in the summer: golf, biking trails, and the Mountain Adventure Course at Holiday Valley. An excellent view, and those bright sunny windows make this the kind of home that could brighten even the darkest day. For more information on this home contact Amy DeTine, Licensed Real Estate Associate Broker at ERA (Pictured Top, left to right) 1. This sunny day view shows the bank of widows that brighten Team VP, and HoliMont ERA. the interior. 2. The fieldstone fireplace compliments the large windows. The ceiling is knotty pine tongue and grove paneling. 3. The master bedroom is in the upstairs loft. 716-583-3769.

Checking Out The Tunes & Other Stuff In Ellicottville

Written By: Robby & Sherman Wilkens

After another Fall Festival that was well attended, Ellicottville will now look forward to Halloween, Thanksgiving and the start of Ski Season. With the great weather we had for last week’s festival, it will be fairly difficult to think snow. Hopefully, golf will still be still on many of our minds. Even with more fall like weather predicted for later this month, both Holiday Valley and Elkdale Country Club are open for business. Just call either place, make a Tee time, then get and enjoy what is left of our Great Golf Season and the Good Times golf brings on. One more note before we get started, Robby’s Birthday is this coming Saturday. Happy Birthday Robby and have a really FUN Day. Now on to the music and other FUN stuff happening here in our neighborhood. Starting today Thursday October 17, 2013 through Wednesday October 23, 2013, we will have eight Bands, four DJ’s, several sound system music events plus all the food and drink specials offered by the excellent clubs and restaurants here in The Ellicottville area for us all to take part in and enjoy. THURSDAY, the music week begins with one Band and one DJ show that also includes a Karaoke show. We should get started at 8:00 PM Thursday in The Gin Mill with Fred & Tuck returning to do their acoustic folk rock to country music show. Cover tunes that are always performed in Fred & Tuck’s unique style will again make another FUN Gin Mill Music Night happen. Then at 9:00 PM Thursday, The Pub in Great Valley will be host to DJ Felony and his

Karaoke Show. As always, this neat show gives The PUB’S Patrons two options. Be part of the show or just enjoy the local good times that happen regularly in The PUB. Moving to FRIDAY, which is a two Band and two DJ evening. The FUN kicks off at 7:00 PM in Balloons with The Brother 2 Brother Band on stage. Brother 2 Brother is a neat group of five talented musicians with a passion for the groove. They offer a selection of great songs spanning several generations and musical styles. Their song list includes everything from Billy Joel to Sting and The Doobie Brothers. This will be another FUN & entertaining Balloons Music Evening. You may wish to arrive a bit early to enjoy a Balloons Fish Fry. Following Brother 2 Brother, DJ Mo Chuck will keep the FUN times rolling from Balloons Sound & Light Booth with his neat danceable tune selection and entertaining chit/chat till close. Returning to 9:00 PM Friday The Gin Mill will have Two Guys Drinking Beer back on stage. Ron and Terry, the two guys, are two talented musicians and will create a FUN Gin Mill Music & Party Night with their neat classic rock cover tunes and well conceived, general silliness. Also remember, depending on the crowd, The Gin Mill will serve their great menu until midnight on weekends. Also at 9:00 PM Friday, DJ Mister Meaner, pronounced Misdemeanor, will return to The Pub in Great Valley with his FUN tune selection and interesting chit/chat that will have The PUB crowd enjoying the PUB GOOD TIMES even more. Moving to SATURDAY, a two band and one DJ evening. We begin at 6:00 PM in Balloons with The Stevie Project on stage. Joseph Michael Mahfoud, who is The Stevie Project, does a neat tribute show celebrating the music of Stevie Ray Vaughan. Besides the excellent cover tunes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Mr. Mahfoud will do several more Smokin Blues tunes. Therefore if excellent blues are your thing, Balloons will be the place to be this Saturday. Following The Stevie Project,

DJ Flakey Frank Watson, Ellicottville’s Party Monster, will be in Balloons Sound & Light Booth. We are unsure if his pass has been extended or he has escaped from The Disoriented DJ Home. Either way, his really FUN innovative plan of party continuation, trend setting chitchat and neat tune selection will happen till close. Returning to 9:00 PM Saturday, The Gin Mill will have Ray D O’Flyer in house. Ray D O’Flyer, or Radio Flyer, as we always say, is a neat Honky Tonk Oldies to Retro Rock N Roll Band playing tunes from the fifties and sixties in a way that always returns us to Rock N Oldies days. This FUN band brings out the bobby socks, poodle skirts and slicked back hair for all us good time Rock N Roll party people here in Ellicottville. Another excellent Gin Mill Music Night is about to happen this Saturday. Then after a music quiet and football friendly SUNDAY we move to Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday all of which are one-band evenings. MONDAY starts off us at 10:00 PM sharp in Madigans with Church on Monday. Reverend Jack and Deacon Dan will be ROCKIN Madigans Up-Stairs Bar with their mainly original Honky Tonk to Rock-A-Billy tunes. This is a great and FUN way to start your music week. TUESDAY at 7:00 PM, The Twobadours, will return to The Gin Mill doing their acoustic southern rock to country music show. Red Grae and RP Jones have really made Tuesday a great music night. So stop by The Gin Mill this Tuesday to enjoy a great Twobadours show. WEDNESDAY at 8:00 PM our week’s final music gig begins in The Gin Mill with Joe Wagner & John Winston on stage doing their traditional acoustic folk to southern rock music show. Friends, Bongos Freddie, Retro Lil Joey and Pink Gary London might also join in for even more music FUN. The excellent chicken wings The Gin Mill serves as a Wednesday special enhance the music and good times. C U Round The Music Scene Good Stuff No Worries.

WNY Kidney Connection

Help Support WNY Kidney Connection - No Donation Is Too Small

WNYKidneyConnection. org, which began as a grassroots effort, is a free website for communication between potential living kidney donors and persons on the Buffalo Kidney Transplant Waiting List. After finding a donor for my son on a national website we felt the need to help people in our own community who were in the same situation—people who need a kidney and have no one who matches in the family. The organization’s mission is to make that connection so that more people will be able to give and receive the Gift of Life…one connection at a time. The Reality: 119,952 are on the national Waiting List, 567 of our neighbors are currently on the local, Buffalo-area waiting list, 18 people die every day in this country because of the lack of organ donors.

Over the past five years, WNYKidneyConnection.org has been the meeting place for altruistic, potential living donors across the country and recipients in western New York. We have had great success so far, having introduced eleven donors and recipients who have gone on to receive successful transplants. They were strangers who would not have met had it not been for the Kidney Connection website. The WNYKidneyConnection. org website is provided completely FREE to everyone on the Buffalo region’s Transplant Waiting List, and our only benefit is the incredible feeling we get when a successful transplant occurs! We strongly believe that people should not be denied a lifesaving transplant because they cannot afford the nonmedical expenses involved with finding a living donor. Because

Beat on the Street:

What Was the Craziest Thing You Saw at Fall Festival? Every year Elliocttville’s Fall Festival brings in a throng of visitors. The festival is so huge it is a culmination of the year for many a local. Two weeks surrounding the event are buzzing with anticipation and recollection. The weekend takes up more time than just a few days for those who are part of the above par service and set up. And the camaraderie and holiday feeling of the weekend makes a surreal setting in and around Ellicottville, because the vendors and visitors change it completely for those three days. It is quite the exhibition to see the festive partygoers enjoying their libations: there is an old saying from Samuel Johnson, “He who makes a beast of himself takes away the pain of being a man.” The party is the reason for many of the visitors to come here and they expect to have fun, though they may not necessarily remember it. One-upping one another is a constant activity and the sights and sounds amaze anyone who is paying attention. What was the craziest thing you saw at Fall Festival?

Allegany Artisans Studio Tour 2013 October 19 & 20, 2013 10AM-5PM

25 years ago, a group of artists and crafts people joined together as the “Allegany Artisans” and opened their studios to the public for a weekend. The artisans chose their name to represent their proximity to the Allegany foothills and called their event “The Allegany Artisans Studio Tour.” This venture became an annual cooperative event and grew to include artisans of diverse styles, tastes and traditions working with clay, wood, metal, fiber, jewelry, paint, glass, and paper.

Over the years, many Allegany Artisans have established an audience and market through participation in regional, national and international events but they have maintained their relationship with friends and neighbors through the annual Allegany Artisans Studio Tour. Only a few of the studios keep regular business hours throughout the year. Many studios function primarily as workshops but artisans are often willing to open their private spaces to visitors by

appointment. This is one way to shop locally and directly. Please contact individual artisans to make arrangements. Area artisans interested in joining the 2014 Studio Tour should Contact Us to apply next spring. Membership is open to artisans living/working in Allegany County. See Membership information. If you would like to be on our mailing list send your name and address in an email to Allegany Artisans and type Studio Tour in the subject area.

former site of the town highway garage for $325,000. Using those funds, along with surplus the town had, the facility was able to build without putting the cost onto taxpayers. The new Tim Horton’s will also open soon, with four apartments also at the site. In addition, he said, the town has purchased the former Cooperative Extension building and is transforming it into a town center. Burrell said the building is being remodeled, with town courts being housed there, along with one village court. An auditorium that seats 225 is also being revamped, which Burrell said is important for all in the area since weddings and other events can be held there. He said Cattaraugus County Department of Aging lunches will also be able to be served

along Washington and Monroe streets and commerce reared it’s capitalist head. Money started being exchanged all throughout town and business owners were grinning for 48 hours straight. Fall Festival is the largest event held annually in Ellicottville and in the past it was even more welcomed than it is now, because the summer months weren’t as lucrative as they are these days. And the rule of business applies this weekend; especially as supply and demand call for a slight raise in prices at the bars and beer tents. As folks shopped the vendor-lined streets and the retail shops around the village, stopping in one of the public houses for cocktails was on the agenda of a lot of people. The lift line at Mardi Gras was long all day long and the party at the top of the hill proved worth it as most of the chair-lifters stopped at the tent for some beer before hiking back down to the bottom as they enjoyed the postpeak deciduous trees still bright with Autumn colors. As the vendors tied in their wares and draped their tents for the evening and live music was rocking from the tents at Balloon’s and EBC the sun started it’s dip behind the hill and the bars filled to capacity. The servers in restaurants and bars soon became overwhelmed,

at the facility. The eight-acre arboretum is also going to be run as a park. Burrell said the building will be handicap-accessible and house cooperative extension staff whose positions could have been moved to another local if the building was not purchased. He said the purchase of the building also looks out for future town needs since office space remains available. “We’ve had a good year,” said Burrell. He said the town is fortunate to have an industry. While, he said, that does not center around manufacturing, tourism and the jobs it brings are good for Ellicottville, along with the whole county. Mayor Charlie Coolidge echoed the Town Supervisor’s sentiments, citing village accomplishments. He said those include sidewalk replacement, well cleaning, moving the assessor’s office to the site of the code enforcer’s office, so the two can work better together. The new Kwik-Fill, he said,

is also the site of a new Cuba Cheese shop, and the Sprague Development site now features the bowling alley, fitness shop, pizza shop and barber shop. The addition to the Ellicottville Brewing Company is “outstanding,” he said. “It’s been an excellent year,” he said, adding he feels a lot has been accomplished, with housing prices increasing, too. “Ellicottville is holding its own,” he said, adding it has a lot to offer. Both officials cited future plans including work on the east tank, which will hold 35,000 gallons of water to help serve area growth, along with improving fire protection. A new bike, walking trail is being undertaken, along with the possibility of a visitor’s center at the former Kwik-Fill are also projects the two plan to undertake in the future. For now, however, visitors returning to the area this fall already have changes to enjoy, report the Village’s Mayor and its Town Supervisor.

but held steadfast to their respective posts. A strange thing also happened because of the anticipation of “more trouble than it’s worth” the World Famous Gin Mill closed their doors at 9pm Saturday night. And the regulations that were implemented due to concerns in safety and noise ordinances kept the establishments at the Fire Marshall’s capacity and closed the live music tents at an earlier hour. The State Liquor Authority also did a sweep of the bars looking to share in some of the much needed profits the places earned by looking to fine for anything they could find. Saturday night did however prove to be a great evening with minimal problems, save the usual open container and public urination tickets. Many locals do have some complaints about plenty of problematic visitors acting as though they are entitled to do as they wish. Ellicottville is known to be a party town and with large festivals such as the one in early October and there are bound to be troublemakers and miscreants. As day broke on Sunday and the vendors started opening their tents and stores and businesses opened for business, the weather held up to it’s promise. Plenty of sunshine all day until it started raining in the early evening into the night, cleaning the streets of the dust and dirt kicked around by the horde of weekenders. The streets opened up as the last of the vendors packed their goods and headed out of town and many people wanted to

drink away the sorrow caused from yet another NFL hometeam loss. But that didn’t stop the local workers who finished up their long weekend and headed to their favorite watering hole to exchange stories and congratulate each other on a weekend well done. The Sunday Spectacular as it has been called is the one night that is looked forward to most during the Fall Festival by the local faction. The annual Autumn event in Ellicottville has grown since it’s humble beginnings in the 1970s. The weekend starts on Thursday evening and folks are still milling about come Tuesday. As many folks in town brainstorm for solutions to problems caused at Fall Festival it may be evident that it needs to be drawn out a little longer so as to accommodate all who want to visit the area to enjoy it’s natural beauty of the season. The weekend was another success and the buildings, streets and trampled grass are getting back to normal. Another Fall Festival has come and gone and the count down to next years grand event has begun. Mayor Coolidge said “from what I had seen during the day on Saturday it went very well. Reports Saturday night was it went well. The busses were still a problem, but our local police, the Sheriff’s office and State Troopers did a great job. I had a couple people come up to me and told me it all went fairly well. The Special Events Committee and everyone involved odd a good job.”

the legs raised vertically above them in a straight line with the body, and either the hands or forearms flat on the ground, or the hands straight at the sides of the body. 2. Legs must be straight and together. 3. If a participant ceases to be in the headstand position at any point during the designated time period, they will be disqualified. For the purposes of this record, ‘simultaneous’ means that all the participants must headstand within five seconds of a signal being given. Only those who achieve this within this fivesecond window may be counted, all others do not count towards the final total. 4. Participants must simultaneously headstand, holding for a minimum of 15 seconds. Any performers who do not participate fully for the entire time must be deducted from the final total. There is NO age limit. We have a tutorial video so you can to learn and practice with, at www.headstandsforhumanity. com/videos.
