Kwik Fill Expansion Gas Station Slated to Open the End of October By Nicholas Pircio WPIG, 95.7 FM Work on the new Kwik Fill and Red Apple gas station and convenience store is continuing in Ellicottville. And developer William Paladino is pleased with the progress being made. He said, “We are hoping to get the Kwik Fill open by the end of October.” As for the other buildings, Paladino says work will continue through the winter. “We hope to get those buildings in shape so we can lease them out sometime in early spring (of 2013).” As for the interest in those buildings, Paladino feels that to date, there has been a decent amount of interest,

which should grow. “Once we start making some improvements to the exteriors, and show people what it’s really going to look like, there will be a lot more (interest). We’re very excited about the project, and we’re very excited about the prospects.” Paladino is the principal partner in a Buffalo company, 4646 Group, which is constructing a $5.3-million project in downtown Ellicottville. The new Kwik Fill and Red Apple gas station and convenience store is moving across Mill Street from its former site. The new location will feature more gas pumps and greater efficiency for See KWIK FILL page 8

Southern Tier West Developments Board Explores Local Branded Food, Broadband Access

By John Thomas, Staff Writer Bush’s job at Holiday Valley is to create web videos of their upcoming events. Not only does she create the videos, but she stars in them to give viewers a personal account of what the upcoming events are. For example, in the Mudslide event done each spring, participants run a series of obstacle courses through the mud at Holiday Valley. In the Mudslide teaser video found on Holiday Valley’s website, she explains the event and also runs a series of obstacles herself, in all their muddy glory.

A the last meeting of the Southern Tier West Regional Planning and Development Board Executive Director Richard Zink outlined the funding situation and programs currently underway. In short, federal funding seems to be intact for now. On September 13th the House passed a continuing resolution to keep the federal government in operation

through March 15th 2013. The resolution requires agencies receiving federal funds to outline how received funds will be allocated among various programs. The continuing resolution actually includes an 8 billion dollar increase in overall spending for most federal programs and services.

Demo Nearly Complete Old Signore Building Almost Gone

It’s an eye sore that’s been hard to miss as you come into Ellicottville on Jefferson St. but the large building that was once the steel furniture plant of Signore is gone. Since the beginning of August bulldozers have been busy taking down the building that has been closed since 2006. The morning of September 25 marked the near end of the demolition project. This has been a long time coming. The site was previously used as a former manufacturing facility that fabricated metal lockers and cabinets. Contamination

from spills, leakage and other plant operations was addressed in the late 80s and early 90s. To remedy the issue, Signore had to use on site ground water extraction and treatment systems and long term groundwater monitoring. According to the Department of Environmental Conservation, in 2002 Signore was granted permission to discontinue the use of the onsite groundwater pump because the groundwater contaminate concentrations were non detect or below State drinking water standards. Signore ceased operations and abandoned the facility in 2006.

In 2008 Iskalo Ellicottville Holding purchased the property and entered the Brownfield Cleanup Program in 2011. Iskalo Development Corp. of Amherst will now be able to clean up any contamination that remained on site. An additional investigation is also scheduled to begin following the demolition of the building to assess additional contamination issues. There are no definite plans for what will now rise above the rubble that was once Signore; however the developer is proposing mixed residential / commercial use of the area.

with SBU Theater students 8:30 a.m. in Garret Theater on campus, said Ludwig Brunner, interim executive director of The Quick Center. “In meeting Mr. Klausen personally during the last year, I learned that at this stage in his astounding career there is one thing dear to his heart: giving back,” said Brunner. “He loves to meet and talk with students to give his advice on how to start a career, build it by always maintaining the highest standards, taking risks and, most of all, dedication to the job. I think students and people of all ages will find this an exciting afternoon. We are very proud and grateful that Mr. Klausen has agreed to visit St. Bonaventure University.” In the evening, The Quick Center will present a fundraising event, “Emmy Night at the Quick Center,” in honor of Klausen, starting with cocktails at 6:30 p.m. and dinner on the stage at 7:30 p.m. Proceeds will benefit the establishment of a Visiting Masters Fund to enable similar programs in the future. A few single tickets at $75 are still available for the event. For reservations, call Juliana Bordonaro at 716-375-2464. The Quick Center’s galleries are open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Museum admission is free and open to the public year round.

Inside Business Track

Architectural Spotlight A Wooded Wonderland

Story and photos by John Thomas Staff Writer I’m driving up a winding road through a forest so thick I begin to wonder if I should watch for Ewoks. But the most exotic life I come across is a deer, who takes off the moment he spots me. At the top of the hill I spot the house through the forest, a great blue and gray structure. Standing in a clearing the house looks like a barn from the outside. Off one end of the home is a garage and a cover for the large pile of fire wood. The gabled metal roofs of the garage and the house are a pale blue to match the sky. Over the garage is a spare rec room or bedroom. Approaching the front door it seems to be a large barn style home, but the exterior gives no hint of the spectacular inside. Inside is a triumph of timber frame construction. Just past the entryway the vaulted ceiling looms high overhead. Looking down from the wood paneled ceiling my eye traces down the huge exposed beams along the walls and down to the windows on the far wall. My eye comes to rest on a beautiful brass electric candelabra. It is high over my head, and yet I notice it’s only about a third of the way up the

massive river rock chimney for the wood burning fireplace; the ceiling is that high. Just outside the sliding glass doors is a large deck with a forest view. Like all timber frame homes, the woodwork throughout the home is incredible. The kitchen is to die for; a professional grade workspace with a six burner gas stove with a griddle and a swing arm that delivers hot water to fill a soup pot on the stove. The stone floor and wood cabinetry make the space as elegant as it is functional. Just off the kitchen is a large mud room that connects to the garage. It also contains two more ovens for entertaining

a crowd. Just off the living room is a palace of a master bedroom. Its post and beam ceiling and cherry floors create a warm atmosphere. The master bath has a large whirlpool tub. Upstairs are two more bedrooms, each featuring handsome woodwork, and a full bath. The bottom floor has a rec room, two more bedrooms, and a full bath. A sliding glass door leads out to the hot tub. At 7200 square feet, 5+ bedrooms, and 4.5 baths, this is not a small home. When you figure in the oversized two car garage, with a separate entrance for the lawn mower, and a separate barn for all the power toys, you realize it could be your own private wonderland.

operations; Ronn Tritto, vicepresident of marketing and development, and Robert Irwin, facilities manager. All have experience in the entertainment, hospitality or marketing fields, but have turned their attentions to the new endeavor. “Hutchins’ passion is to have glamping motivate area families to come together for a wilderness vacation that provides plenty of opportunity for family fun and bonding,” said Tritto. “The Woods at Bear Creek will offer the region an additional lodging and tourism experience,” he said, adding resort officials will reach out to Ellicottvillearea businesses to collaborate and partner on package deals and activities, while offering a unique outdoor experience. That experience is all about glamping, which, they report, is “a growing global phenomenon” that combines camping with the luxury and amenities of a home or hotel. “Glamping allows travelers to experience nature without the hassle of finding camp space, carrying their tents and erecting and taking down their own tents,” said Tritto. “Its fresh air in absolute leisure,”

he said. Tritto said the management team’s focus is to provide guests with a relaxing vacation, along with get-a-way experiences that will create lifelong memories. “Turn off the cell phone, add a do-not-disturb sign to your text messaging, set aside your child’s DS and explore the tranquility and beauty of Ellicottville,” he said, adding the resort presents a perfect setting to reconnect and bond. In fact, reports the resort’s website, exhilaration is “the feeling you get when the only thing coming between you and your Smart Phone is a zip line.” In addition to that zip line, featured activities include hiking, wildlife tours, a 20acre spring-fed lake with its fishing, kayaking and canoeing, an Olympic-sized pool, tennis courts, athletic fields, skiing, horseback riding, a drivein movie theater, campfires, massage therapy and more. There will be themed weekends, concerts, wine and beer tasting, fitness weekends, hayrides, reunions, weddings, girls’ night out packages and more. Meals will also be available in casual and formal dining settings, along with all-inclusive meal packages from which campers can choose. Other guests are also invited to dine without camping in the restaurant that overlooks the lake. For more information, visit www.thewoodsatbearcreek.com

Gweniviere Bush - Creating Web Marketing For Holiday Valley

By Janae Butler While some people have normal, routine jobs, there are others who get to have different experiences every time they prepare for work. Gweniviere Bush, who works for Holiday Valley, gets to embark on something new every time she goes to work. Bush’s job at Holiday Valley is to create web videos of their upcoming events. Not only does she create the videos, but she stars in them to give viewers a personal account of what the upcoming events are. For

example, in the Mudslide event done each spring, participants run a series of obstacle courses through the mud at Holiday Valley. In the Mudslide teaser video found on Holiday Valley’s website, she explains the event and also runs a series of obstacles herself, in all their muddy glory. Bush, who has been helping create these videos since last spring, said that she has a specific mission for each one created. “My goal with these videos is to be informative, yet entertaining,” Bush said. “We create these videos so people have an opportunity to see everything that offered at Holiday Valley in an entertaining way they’ll remember.” The videos are usually a minute to two minutes long, and when feature videos are done on events, they usually run about three minutes long. In the summer, Bush said that updates are typically done once or twice a month and during ski season, updates are done once a week to every other week. “During ski season, there’s events happening literally every weekend, so we have a lot more action and opportunity with the videos,” she said.

Bush said that the process for creating one of the videos is pretty basic, as she meets with the marketing team so she knows what they want to be covered, then she works with the videographer, Ashley Baron, to figure out how she wants to convey the event via video and then create the video. “Typically, we just figure out what we want to say, and what we think would be entertaining to an audience, and then put it into a video form and then go from there,” Bush said. After she and Baron shoot the videos, they are edited and then put up on the website. Bush said that upcoming events at Holiday Valley include a Fall festival event, a wine and beer event festival and some mountain biking opportunities. “Holiday Valley is a great place that has fun opportunities for everyone, so it’s my job to make sure that everyone sees what is going on and what we have to offer,” Bush said. To check out Bush’s videos and for information on upcoming events at Holiday Valley, go to their website at www. holidayvalley.com, and then go to their Video/Media page.

schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and ADHD are some of the major disorders now known to involve imbalances in neurotransmitters. Your nervous system is probably the most nutritionally sensitive system in the body. Long before you develop actual physical conditions from poor nutrition, you will feel the mental and emotional effects of a lack of good nutrition. These include fuzzy thinking (“brain fog”), absentmindedness, mental confusion and nervousness. Later they develop into more serious problems such as chronic insomnia, anxiety, depression and memory loss. So, it becomes very helpful to understand how to nourish this important system properly. The brain is 70% water; so it is very sensitive to dehydration, so if you want to think clearly and protect your grey matter, start by drinking ½ ounce of pure water for every pound of body weight every day. (That’s 75oz or a little more than a half-gallon for an average 150-pound person). Next, 5060% of the “dry” weight of the brain is fat, with 35% of that fat being omega-3 fatty acids. So, it is crucial to supplement your brain with omega-3 oils from fish like Super Omega-3 or vegetable sources like Flax Seed Oil. You can also find this essential fatty-acids in hemp seeds, chia seeds, avocados, salmon fish, ground flax seed, sardines, black walnuts, organic raw coconut oil, to mention a few. Besides fat, the brain also needs amino acids from protein. The neurotransmitters we mentioned earlier are built from aminoacids. Meals containing adequate protein tend to increase levels of dopamine and norepinephrine (which results in a more alert mind and a better mood).

To solve a Sudoku puzzle, place a number into each box so that each row across, each column down, and each small 9-box square within the larger diagram (there are 9 of these) will contain every number from 1 through 9. In other words, no number will appear more than once in any row, column, or smaller 9-box square. Working with the numbers already given as a guide, complete each diagram with the missing numbers that will lead to the correct solution. Good luck!
