Common Council on Anti-Bullying Striving to Be Bully Free, Olean Committee Discusses Successful Campaign

New “State of the art” boot fitting bench at Dekdebruns.

By Chad Neal Dekdebruns ski shop has been part of Ellicottville for over 50 years, 52 as a matter of fact. Greg Dekdebrun is the proprietor of the popular outdoor snowsports retail store and plans on handing it over to his daughter Kylie when he decides to “retire”.

By Nicholas Pircio 95.7 FM, WPIG Eileen Skrobacz is very passionate about the subject of bullying. She’s managed to translate her enthusiasm to her students at the Olean Intermediate Middle School, where she teaches English to sixth and seventh graders. Students there have rallied around the color blue as an expression of their efforts to be kind to one another. And three of those students read their poetry

to members of the Olean Common Council, during a recent meeting. Skrobacz explained that her students took part in a “Don’t Bully Me” writing program sponsored by Olean Mayor Linda Witte, and reviewed by the mayor and her committee. The three top entries got to read their pieces to the Common Council and those in the audience. Those students are Alexander Weakfall, Kya Isaman, and Erin Martin, all in seventh grade. Olean’s Bully Free campaign

dates back to the summer of 2012, when Mrs. Skrobacz noticed a blue tee shirt while walking in the BonTon store. The shirt read, “National Stomp out Bullying Day,” which took place October 7th. She asked for and received the support of the school administration, including principal Gerald Trietley and Superintendent Colleen Taggerty. Another teacher, Angela Mest, suggested making See BULLY page 8

And wasn’t it a beauty? Nature has its own version of “trick-or-treat” you know. And for most of the month, it was a

real pleasure for those of us who relish the crisp weather, the blue skies and the gorgeous palate of colors one can only find in the Enchanted Mountains. And now? We’re down to one last week – one last fling for fall. With the change of season and dimming of the sky, don’t forget to turn your clocks back one hour this Sunday as we try to grasp on to every ounce of daylight we can in the season ahead of us. The transition to November can be a rough one, so you better saddle up and come on into Ellicottville this weekend to see some sights of a different variety. I speak, of course, of the trickor-treaters. Halloween falls on a Thursday night this year, and the early evening hours are for the little ones to parade from house to house, busily collecting candy

while dressed as their favorite animal, vegetable or cartoon. Trick-or-treating hours are this Thursday 5-8pm. Later in the evening, while the wee ones empty their pillow cases and count their loot, there’s no doubt the village will have more than its fair share of slightly more mature revelers and lunatics, also dressed in a wide (and sometimes very strange) array of frightening garb. If you’ve never been to Balloons for their Annual Halloween Bash, Saturday Nov. 2, you are really missing out. So, dear readers, the last weekend of October can hold a lot of fun for folks of all ages. Pull out something interesting, put it on, and c’mon downtown! Happy Halloween, y’all! Until next week …JZ

ECS Updates: Keep Up the Great Work

By Olivia Venezia This week of the October 28th brings another exiting week for students with Quiz Bowl, and ESPRA events along with the remains of Red Ribbon Week. These events bring great benefit for the community and the school. The student council hosted a wonderful assembly during Red Ribbon week. Coucil president Connor Schmick and teacher

Mrs. Zelko made arrangements for some important law officers in the community to speak with middle through high school students. Two officers recounted some stories about the dangers and troubles drugs can cause. Other officers brought in 3 dogs from the K9 unit and showed off the skills these law enforcing canines display, including bomb sniffing, drug sniffing, and the ways a dog can make a criminal behave in the way that the officers wish. The assembly was wonderful and went over brilliantly with the students, Thank you Student Council. Academically speaking, Trigonometry students have the opportunity to stay after school on Tuesdays to work with Mrs. Chamberlin on regents practice. This is a great opportunity for both honor students and those struggling, as they can work to achieve a

good grade and gain positive practice. Another interesting club event is the first Quiz Bowl meeting at JCC on Wednesday October 30th. Students have been practicing every Tuesday -Thursday during lunch to prepare to show off their knowledge against students from another school. The meets are always filled with great competitive team spirit, as the members answer general knowledge questions and try to win the tournament for their school. It’s great to have an event like this showcasing the intelligence and knowledge that these students have. Win or lose, it’s a good event and always brings out the good sportsmanship of our students, as they watch and compete. The results of the meet will be posted in next week’s column. Have a wonderful and safe Halloween students and keep up the great work!

Dekdebruns; 52 Year Old E’ville Ski Shop Makes a Few Changes

RegisteR online: Genesee Community College is an affirmative action/ equal opportunity institution

Greg Dekdebrun (pictured, above) learned the trade from his father and will keep it in his family when he decides to “retire”.

By Chad Neal Dekdebruns ski shop has been part of Ellicottville for over 50 years, 52 as a matter of fact. Greg Dekdebrun is the proprietor of the popular outdoor snow-sports retail store and plans on handing it over to his daughter Kylie when he decides to “retire”. Greg’s father Al started Dekdebruns in 1961 when he realized there was a market in Ellicottivlle for ski related hardware, because the two fledgling resorts were proving to be in demand. Al Dekdebrun started Al Dekdebruns Sporting Goods in Buffalo in 1947. Dekdebruns deals in skis, snowboards, cross country skis, snow shoes and ski related apparel and clothing, and also have a “state-of-theart” boot fitting machine and system in the newly renovated upstairs showroom. Making changes has been a popular routine these past few years in Ellicottville and Dekdebruns has joined in the trend. Switching a few things around in the “long and narrow building” that Greg Dekdebrun called “challenging” has made

a noticeable alteration in the store. “We’ve moved all the hard goods upstairs,” said Dekdebrun, “it used to be snowboards upstairs and skis down. And because sales are increasing every year, we are trying to diversify. We are trying to bring different products than the other stores have. Our thought process was to put all the hard-goods on one floor and clothing on another. Our sales are even too, 50/50 hard goods to clothing. And we’ve added more brands as well.” The new boot-fitting bench Dekdebrun recently had made is an integrated boot fitting technology. The images are recorded from a weight sensitive balance sensor. Placing the feet on it allows the computer to find where problem areas might be in the balance of the skier. Dekdebrun told The Villager that the foot balancer is for making custom footbeds for the ski boots. It is also for dynamic foot positioning. “When someone stands on it with ski boots, there is an on screen stance analysis. It also involves seeing if you are bow legged or knock-kneed and how much weight is dispersed

from the heel to the toe. In the end you end up with a flat ski. It checks weight and stance. High tech stuff.” Dekdebrun said. Greg Dekdebrun told the Villager upon inquiry that they “cherry pick” all the merchandise they sell. “We go to Stratton, when they have the big ski show every year and ski on all the equipment,” he answered, “ then we cherry pick the lines from there.” Dekdebruns sells product from many different companies. One of the finds Greg is very proud of selling is the Apex boots. “Apex is a totally different ski boot. It’s unique,” Dekdebrun started, “it starts with a walking boot, which is comfortable, warm and they perform. Then you step into the chassis.” This is the sixth year Dekdebruns has sold the Apex boot that can be used for boarding and/or skiing. They are also the first one’s to retail the Apex boot. Dekdebrun said that the premise of the boot was so it could be used for both sports. He also said if you wanted to see more information on the innovative boot, check out their website Ever changing with the time, fashions and technologies Dekdebruns is keeping up. As the ski industry improves and becomes more popular it is definitely good business practice to pay attention, or risk getting left behind. Greg Dekdebrun and his daughter Kylie are keen to the business and hip to the trends. Like most of Ellicottville’s businesses Dekdebrun’s is in touch with it’s clientele and enjoys a growing business. The legacy of Dekdebruns is leaning on it’s third generation to take the reigns and keep the standards high. The changes in Dekdebruns will help them improve efficiency and the diversity in product will keep customers on their feet.

Night Sky Class

Ellicottville Library Offers Class - Naked Eye Objects In The Night Sky When you look up at the clear night sky can you make any sense out of the beautiful randomness? Do you see anything you recognize beyond possibly the moon and the Big Dipper? If not, possibly this class is for you. We’ll survey the night sky for objects that are easily recognized with the greatest optical instruments known to man; your own two amazing eyes. We won’t be

encumbered by the need for binoculars nor telescopes. We’ll consider a few easily recognized naked eye objects that are visible in each season. Those unpredictable, yet beautiful, events such as the northern lights, shooting stars and comets will be addressed. You’ll also learn about artificial satellites and how to spot them. This class will help you better enjoy time spent

under a clear night sky. The class will be led by long time amateur astronomer Bert Probst. It will meet at the library on consecutive Wednesday evenings November 6th and November 13th from 7 PM to 8:30 PM. The class is designed for adults 17 and older. Class size is limited to 15 so call the library (699-2842) to reserve your place. There is no charge.

For some students, even rfamilies, public school does enot have what it takes. Some rfeel the curriculum is too lax, eothers want more of a structure; still more are looking for an alternative to the status quo. oOne school in the Southern Tier region offers that education, ofrom pre-Kindergarten to Senior eYear. That school is offering a rchance to come in and take a look at what they have to offer this Sunday, November 3, from s11:30 am to 1:30pm, parents and students are welcomed to talk to the teachers and coaches rand talke a look around the school. r Southern Tier Catholic School g(Pre-K through Grade 8), a rperennial fixture of Buffalo sBusiness First’s Top Ten list for public schools, offers one class sfor each grade level. Class sizes average 15 students, according to Director of Admissions and yMarketing, Mary Beth Garvin. s Archbishop Walsh High sSchool, with similar class .sizes, offers the International lBaccalaureate program in yJunior and Senior years, giving students a rigorous curriculum that is designed to prepare students for college through intense classes and innovative teaching methods, to include critical thinking and writing exercises in each and every class. “The dropout rate for college freshmen is right around 50-percent,” Garvin said. “The yreason for that is that they are rnot prepared. We want to make tsure each and every student ehere is ready for that next step. sWe have a college admissions rcounselor that helps guide .students on the path to where sthey want to go.” s Education at the private yschool isn’t reserved to those r

in elementary school nor final years of high school. The middle grades are taking part in the International Baccalaureate Program Middle Years Program. The curriculum, just as rigorous as that in the higher grades, and as effective as those in the elementary grades, according to Garvin, is designed to better prepare students for that final two years of globallevel learning as part of the IB program. The Middle Years Program is being implemented as Southern Tier Catholic and Archbishop Walsh apply for candidacy in the program, as they did with the IB program, prior to full accreditation. To ensure the proper development at a competitive level, on the global scale, students are taught with stateof-the-art technology and classroom design. “You will not see rows of desks, all facing the front of the room,” Garvin said, showing innovated desk centers, each with a technology hub, to encourage collaborative learning within groups. Smart boards are mounted on the walls, big-screened, flat-panel televisions adjacent to each desk cluster, enables teachers to tailor learning to each student. That custom-tailored learning is a benefit of the school having a private school designation, Garvin said. “Being private, we do not have to teach to the tests, as public schools do,” she said. “Our teachers are able to teach curriculum based on where their students are, based on MAP testing.” MAP tests measure on aptitude benchmarks. The tests are given in September, as a baseline, and then in February and June, to measure student progress. “The tests are given in ELA, reading and math,” Garvin said.

“The results allow teachers to better use differentiated learning methods and tailor the curriculum to their students better than what Common Core seems to allow.” Parents looking out for the diplomas can rest assured. Archbishop Walsh offers New York State Regents, Advanced Regents, International Baccalaureate Certificate, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. “Students with the International Baccalaureate diploma have a 50-percent better chance at the college of their choice, over those without,” Garvin said. For the parents, and students, looking for athletic programs, the school offers a wide variety, including boys and girls basketball, girls volleyball, baseball, softball, golf and boys soccer. Just because a family is not Catholic does not mean they cannot attend Southern Tier Catholic and Archbishop Walsh, in fact, according to Garvin, only about 40-percent of families that have children at the school are Catholic. Students are required to go to Mass with their class and with the student body, but no one is required to take communion, in fact, the pillar of faith is not part of the services, Garvin said. The all-important question about the school, but one that Garvin said is not the hurdle many think it is, is the cost of tuition. For a family that is looking to send a child to the Montessori program at the school can expect to pay $5,500. For Kindergarten through Grade 8, $3,950, and from Grades 9 through 12, $6,200 a school year. For Kindergarten through Grade 12, the Diocese of Buffalo does offer financial assistance, Garvin said. “We don’t ever want parents to not look at the school based on price,” Garvin said. “Over 50-percent of our families do receive some financial assistance. We are willing to take a look at what we can do to make the move to the school affordable. We will do what we can to help. We offer academic scholarships and also have work-study programs available.” ArchBishop Walsh is the only private, Catholic high school in the region, Garvin said. “We get calls from parents that have students in some of the other Catholic elementary schools in the area, asking about continuing their child’s education with us.”

Architectural Spotlight Story and photos By John Thomas Staff Writer

Setting the Standard in Elegance

To call this home a chalet seems to sell it short. In fact it’s one of the most amazing homes you’ll find anywhere. As sophisticated as any house you would find in Vail, Lake Tahoe, or even Chamonix for that matter; it’s a world class home at one of the best ski areas in the East. The view from most of the rooms and the decks is one of the best views of the slopes at Holiday Valley anywhere in town. The view inside is equally amazing. Hardwood floors, ceilings, trim work, and beams abound. In the great room a field stone chimney rises to meet the tongue and groove ceder ceiling. A two story bank of window frames the view of the Holiday Valley just across the way. The main floor is spacious, but due to the glow of the woodwork, is warm, inviting and elegant. The

kitchen is a showplace of granite counter tops, and ceder cabinets. In the corner a round copper door rotates open to reveal a pantry. It is matched by the copper bar sink. The dining area sits in a glassed in pop-out with views of the slopes. Just off it is a screened in deck for summer time entertaining. The deck on this floor runs along the entire outside. At the far end of the great room is a large guest room with its own deck, fireplace, and large stone tiled bath with marble counter tops. A screened in porch leads to the hot tub and sauna. At the top of the steps to the second floor is an open game room with a pool table. Down the hall is a reading room with a fireplace and wide screen TV. At the end is the master suite; a triumph of contemporary elegant design. Its coffer ceiling glows with the same ceder tongue and groove paneling as in the rest of the house. Another field stone

fireplace is snug in the corner between a set of windows. In the opposite corner is a set of french doors that leads to a private deck. The ground level floor holds the family room with a built in wide screen TV and a wet bar. It’ s a perfect for entertaining. There are two bedrooms here, each with their own bath. There is a walk out to the ground level patio. Outside the three car garage is a heated parking area that eliminates snow removal at the top of the driveway. With four bedrooms, and five and a half baths, this is a home with plenty of room to spread out in. But more than that; it’s an elegant showplace, with a million dollar view of Holiday Valley. Its lifts just are seconds away. Call it a chalet if you must, but remember, there is no place like it anywhere. For more information about this chalet contact Cathleen Pritchard Associate Broker ERA Vacation Properties 716-983-4234.

Checking Out The Tunes & Other Stuff In Ellicottville

Written By: Robby & Sherman Wilkens

As October comes to an end and we celebrate Halloween tonight, the fall colors are brilliant, yet fading fast. Please remember, we all need to watch for the little goblins and witches cruising our Village streets. So, with the PARTY TIME of Halloween Weekend happening last and this weekend, you may wish to find a little time to enjoy what is left of golf season. Holiday Valley’s Golf Season will end after this Sunday. However, as long as the weather cooperates, Elkdale Country Club will still be up and running until the snow flies. Call either course for a Tee time then get out and enjoy what is left of our Great Golf Season. The Village Halloween celebrations began last weekend and will continue through this weekend. The Gin Mill held their Halloween Costume Party Last weekend. Balloons, Madigans and The PUB will celebrate this weekend. And yes are we ready for some GOOD TIMES & FUN. The music and other FUN stuff is now approaching the winter mode. So for the week beginning today Halloween Thursday October 31, 2013 through Wednesday November 6, 2013, we will have eight Bands, four DJ’s, one Headstand For Humanity Event, several Sound System music shows, several Halloween Parties plus all the great food and beverage specials offered by Ellicottville’s wonderful clubs and restaurants. So let’s get started with Halloween THURSDAY, a one band and DJ including a Karaoke show evening. The FUN will probably begin at 8:00 PM in The Gin Mill with Fred & Tuck doing their great, acoustic, folk, rock to country music show. Excellent cover tunes done in F&T’s unique & FUN style will make another super Gin Mill Music Night happen. Then at 9:00 PM Thursday, The PUB in Great Valley will have DJ Felony and his Karaoke Show entertaining their Halloween patrons. As always, the attendees will have two options. Be part of the show or just enjoy the FUN times this show creates.

Moving to FRIDAY, which is a two band and one DJ evening. The FUN begins at 7:00 PM in Balloons with a new band for Ellicottville, Back to The Bars. From their website, we will be entertained by an exceptionally talented fourpiece band made up of some of Buffalo’s most notable talents who will be playing “The best of forgotten classics, one hit wonders, amazing B-SIDES and songs you never thought you’d hear a band play”. This sounds like we will be in for another neat Balloons Music Friday. Following Back To The Bars, DJ Mo Chuck will keep the party rolling from Balloons Sound & Light Booth with his neat danceable selection of tunes and totally FUN conversation till close. Returning to 9:00 PM Friday, The Gin Mill will have Two Guys Drinking Beer on their music stage. Ron and Terry, the two guys, are talented and FUNproducing musicians playing acoustic versions of neat classic rock tunes. Their show also includes some general silliness. Therefore another FUN Gin Mill Music Night is on the way. Also remember, The Gin Mill serves their great menu till midnight on weekends. SATURDAY will have two bands, two DJ’s, a Headstand for Humanity Fundraiser plus at least two Halloween Parties. The FUN begins at noon in Holiday Valleys Driving Range, with a fundraiser for The Lounsbury Adaptive Ski Program called Headstands for Humanity. This will be an attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records for the most people doing a headstand simultaneously in one place. For more information check out their website www. Returning to The Village at 6:00 PM Balloons will host another new band for Ellicottville, Flipside. Here we have another four-piece, very experienced, Classic POP Band that, according to their website, has been a continuing staple in The Buffalo Music Community for over twenty years. They do a neat version of classic rock and party tunes covering everything from Billy Idol and Nickelback to Frank Sinatra and Frankie Valli. Balloons once again comes through in fine style for Ellicottville’s music scene. Following Flipside, DJ Party Monster Flakey Frank, will keep the party going from Balloons Sound & Light Booth with his neat danceable tunes and all-ages friendly, yet off the wall chatter. All of which will keep the Party & FUN going till close. Also remember Balloons will be hosting their Annual Halloween Celebration as part of this FUN Saturday. There will be prizes awarded for the best costumes.

Returning to 9:00 PM Saturday, The Gin Mill will have Three Easy Pieces on 12 Washington Street, Ellicottville, New York 14731 stage. RT Live, Freddie Joseph and Jeff Johnson, who are The Three Easy Pieces, do a really neat version of acoustic, classic to southern and country rock.

Beat on the Street:

(Using Innuendo) What was the Greatest Moment You Ever Had in Ellicottville?

By Chad Neal

Certain situations call for undertones in conversation. Television sitcoms use insinuating terminology all the time that aware adults can openly laugh at. Simple pleasures though do not call for innuendo. Trying to simmer up eventful situations using certain implications and hints about this “bubble of awesomeness”, Ellicottville, the question for this week’s “Beat on the Street” called for innuendo. Calling for the greatest moments in Ellicottville, do not generally need innuendo because most memories in Ellicottville are wholesome, and the great moments that do call for suggestion are usually not remembered so well. The nightlife is only a small part of the “bubble of awesomeness” as there are people that grew up in and around Ellicottville. The stories that could be shared by any of the long time local folks could keep a body attentive for hours, because there is a rich history regarding Ellicottville. The greatest moments though are the simple pleasures that are lodged in the memory bank forever. Using Innuendo, what was the greatest moment you ever had in Ellicottville? Ever!

Skrobacz said, “The students signed pledges to be nice, to make Olean Intermediate Middle School a bully-free atmosphere, which is what we’re striving for.” Skrobacz says the emphasis is on being bully free, as opposed to being anti-bully. “If we create a bully free environment, then the students aren’t in in that position where they might engage with a bully. We try to prevent bullying as best as possible in our school.” The blue theme went over very well. A few students died their hair blue, and one boy who wore

a blue shirt, shorts, socks and even blue sneakers said, “I think I can tell everybody that I’m not in favor of bullying.” The message spread throughout the entire Olean City School District and was embraced at all the schools. At Washington West Elementary School, Principal Linda Nottingham described the scene there as a sea of blue. Mrs. Skrobacz is convinced the bully free campaign is doing some good. “Absolutely!” She explained there are a number of upcoming activities slated for November. Students at the Intermediate Middle School will gather for an assembly where sixth graders who wrote poems, and were selected as the winners by the mayor and her committee, will be recognized, and other activities will be held at that time. “In December and January, we’re going to line our halls about being bully free, in order to just keep reminding the

students how important it is to be in a safe atmosphere. “ Then in March, with a grant from the Olean School District Foundation, students will hear Joel Penton, a former Ohio State football player who will encourage students, “To stand tall and to make positive choices. So we have a lot going on in our district. And I know the administrative council is looking into hosting the ‘wear blue’ every Friday as a constant reminder throughout our district.” Penton says while students are often told what not to do (don’t be a bully), but they are rarely told what TO do. Skrobacz says, “We’re really working hard in the Olean City School District to make it a safe, comfortable environment for our students. And I think we’re headed in the right direction.” She can be reached at the Olean Intermediate Middle School, at 716-375-8061.

The brew masters will explain why they made the pairing and speak about the beer. New this year, the food selected will be grown and purchased within a 60-mile radius of Holiday Valley. Amish Valley View cheeses, Amish breads, Wendell’s poultry, Silver Creek grapes, and Watson’s Chocolates will be just some of the foods pairings.

Holiday Valley Resort, the


Cont. From Cover By Chris Chapman “We need to do a better job than we are doing, in telling people who we are and what we are, and this is a good place to start.” Ward 6 Alderman Nate Smith voiced his opinion just prior to the vote to refer the resolutions to the regular council meeting, Tuesday night, that would see the change of Olean’s North Union Street for good. The resolution, as well as three others were approved and the city accepted federal funds of $6.5 million to make the project a reality. Construction of the new vision is expected to take two years, from shovel to ribbon cutting, Lebsack said, but that would be after close to a year of preconstruction engineering and design work to receive proper approval from state and federal transportation officials. The first shovel is expected in September of 2014, Windus said. The design, as presented to those in attendance, will remove the seven signaled intersections on the street. Five will have roundabouts: the intersection of Union Street and State Street, Main Street, Wayne Street, Jamestown Community College, and the Olean Center Mall entrance. The intersection at Wayne will have a mountable roundabout to accommodate large, multi-axle trucks from Dresser-Rand, used to ship units to customers, according to Lebsack. The other two intersections will not remain as they stand. The intersection with Laurens and Delaware Streets will be what are called right-in, right-out intersections. As traffic permits, those at the intersections will be able to merge onto North Union Street. Traffic from North Union will be able to drive onto a smoother angle to simply drive onto those streets, as well. On the other side of the driving lane, a six-foot wide bicycle lane will buffer drivers from the 17foot, diagonal, pull-in parking. Parking will be on either a stamped concrete or other permeable material, to allow

Ellicottville Brewing Company and Southern Tier Brewery, are teaming up to sponsor the event. There will be over 30 of the best breweries and wineries from New York State participating, and most of those will have more than one beer or wine available for sampling, making for a total of 100 handcrafted beers to try. Brewers include: Sierra Nevada, Magic Hat, Great Lakes, Saranac, Southern Tier, Ellicottville Brewing, John Harvard’s, Ithaca, Rohrbach, Woodchuck, CB Craft Brewers, Original Sin Cider, Harpoon, Voodoo, Three Heads Brewing, Bronx Brewing Company, Long Trail, Hebrew and Otter Creek. Several well known New York wineries will be at the festival as well, including: Winery of EVL, 21 Brix, Willow Creek, Schulze, Leonard Oaks, Glenora, Fulkerson, Merritt and Miles Wine Cellars. Big Leg Emma, a popular dance band, will provide music again this year. Attendees will receive a festival glass for sampling. If you need something to nosh with your beer or wine the food court

will be selling bratwurst, French fries, and pizza. According to Jane Eshbaugh of Holiday Valley, “It’s amazing because it gets better each year. The music is wonderful, no one wants to leave!” The festival will run from 3:30pm to 7:30pm on the 9th. Presale tickets are $50 and are available to purchase online at or at Wegmans. Last year the event sold out early, so check for tickets soon. Complimentary shuttle service will be provided from the Inn at Holiday Valley, Tamarack Club, Alpine Meadows, Wildflower and Snow Pine Village. Space is limited and reservations are required. Holiday Valley Rental Properties, the Inn at Holiday Valley, and the Tamarack Club are offering special lodging packages to stay overnight and attend one or both of the events. Call 716-699-2345 for event tickets and reservations. Use the number above or call the toll free number 1-800-323-0020. In a year packed with great events, the food and beer pairing and the festival are two of the best.

storm water drainage, Lebsack said. The remainder of North Union Street will be reduced from four lanes to two, 11-foot wide lanes with a one-foot buffer along the side of an 8-foot wide, raised median. The median would not be continuous, Windus said. Several mountable, lower-grade medians will be installed for emergency vehicle turnarounds. The median will be grasses and permeable materials to allow for snow melt-off in the winter, as annual plowing will coat the center islands with mounds of snow, as has been done in the past. Sidewalks are planned to be extend into the current street area an additional two feet to allow for more chance of sidewalk activity by vendors and retail shop owners on the street. While the streetscape design, with five roundabouts, a median and lane reduction, have been the point of public discord, the project fills a deeper need, according to City Director of Public Works, Tom Windus. He made sure to point out to the members of the Common Council, as well as the near-50 people that attended the public information meeting, Council Committee of the whole and the regular council meeting, that the project centers around the replacement and repair of century-old water and sewer pipes under the main street in the heart of the city. For some time, officials with the State DEC have been after Olean city officials to make the needed changes and upgrades of those pipes. The Federal TIGER Grant, one of only three awarded in New York State, will allow those infrastructure needs to be met, and will give the city a chance to make the changes approved by the members of the council, Tuesday night. According to figures presented, the infrastructure needs would total well over $1 million that, if city officials had not approved the grant, would have come from the taxpayers’ pockets. The amount would not have ended there. Fines imposed by state agencies would also total in the millions of dollars, according to Windus. The project to replace the infrastructure, as well as replace the thoroughfare, would be done

in quartered sections of the street, Jeffrey Lebsack, of Hatch Mott McDonald’s Buffalo office, said. “The work would start at one end, on one side of the street,” he said. “We want to minimize the impact we have on the businesses that are already on North Union Street.” The project is interrupted by an at-grade crossing of the Western New York & Pennsylvania Railroad, just south of the Olean Center Mall. That area, a dividing line on the street for decades, will see some change as well. WNYP President, Carl P. Belke, said Monday, to the board of the Southern Tier Rail Extension Authority, that the project offers a chance to make some changes to the crossing, through state and federal funds available to railroads. THe project could even result in that section of Olean being determined to be a quiet crossing, where the familiar sound of the train whistle will no longer need to be sounded as the locomotive approaches the crossing. The two large crossing gates that currently stand guard at the crossing, the kind of thing the rail industry does not like to have at such a length, could be replaced with quadrant gates, providing a better sense of security for the traffic on the street, as well as pedestrians walking the newly designed streetscape. Belte said meetings with Windus and Olean City Mayor, Linda Witte have also provided possible solution to the problem of tying water and sewer lines under the rail crossing on the street. He said there may be casings to be able to slide lines under the existing rail bed, if not, he would be willing to aid in the boring of the soil to provide the path of the infrastructure repairs. Resolutions accepting the grant, providing a project account line, funding that line and approval to sign contract with Hatch Mott McDonald as project consultants, with city lead, were approved by 7-to-0 votes. All councilmembers were present. “I applaud each and every member of this Council,” Jeff Belt, PResident of SolEpoxy, in Olean, and a member of Gov. Cuomo’s REgional Economic Development Council for western New York. “You are making history here, tonight.”
