Chamber Golf Outing

Annual Event Promises Fun Not Competition

By Sharon Turano Although Ellicottville Central School District officials have seen a spike in new students registering at the district this year, they want others to realize it is not because they are going out of their way to pick up out-of-district pupils. During a Tuesday Ellicottville School District Board of Education meeting, officials said they received a letter from West Valley School officials voicing concern, to which they wanted to respond. “We don’t go out of our way to grab them,” said Board President Carl Calarco about students wanting to attend Ellicottville. They said a bus route that picks up students now attending Ellicottville, who did not previously, has traveled the same route for about 40 years and could therefore pick up students living

It’s been a busy summer. With new businesses, new events, concerts, and a high number of visitors, our local merchants and workers need a break and a bit of fun. That’s the reasoning behind the Chamber of Commerce’s 9-hole Golf Outing. “It’s called an outing not a tournament for a reason,” says Brian McFadden, Executive Director of the Chamber. That’s because the whole idea of the event is to have fun. “We (the merchants) have been so busy this summer, most of us haven’t had a day off.” To be sure the outing is a no-

laboring at anything this weekend! I’m not going to labor on my yard, I’m not going to labor on my housework, I’m not going to labor on the newspaper, and I’m definitely not going into labor. This would be a great weekend to play a little golf, take a little hike, get out the mountain bikes, go on a horseback ride, or take a stroll around the Arboretum. Or you could do a little shopping, grab a bite to eat, do a little more shopping, go out to dinner, head down to the casino, come back and I don’t know about you, see what the nightlife holds but I’m NOT planning on in store. Or you could grab

the camping equipment, make a quick trip to the state park and have yourselves a mini-expedition. Or you could just relax around the ol’ hacienda… None of these activities sound like labor to me. This last weekend of summer is made for one thing – relaxation, and relax you should. You’ve been very productive all summer long and you owe it to yourself (and your family) to spend this long weekend having fun. After all, Labor Day weekend only comes once a year, right? I say, “take advantage.” Until next week… JZ-C

Letter to the Community Tuscan Moon; A Wonderful Event!

My friend Julie and I attended the Tuscan Moon rotary fundraiser on Saturday evening. To say it was wonderful would be an understatement. The food, as usual, was amazing. Donated by various restaurants, you come to really realize what great food these restaurants have to offer. Tom Kneeland’s dessert table is a sight and a tasting to behold. His many scrumptious delights, complimented by Watson’s chocolates, made you want to just stay and eat at that

table until you passed out.... glad Julie dragged me away. From the restaurants who donate the food, the businesses and people who donated items to the silent auction and live auction, which were so amazing, to Brian Dunkleman who was sooo funny, and all the volunteers I would like to say ...You Rock! Greg and Kegs Cappelli and all the people who volunteer their time and efforts have made this the wonderful fundraiser it has become. It is in part to honor Michael

Kerns, who died way too young and was always there to support the arts and sports and everything in between. But the bigger picture is that it helps the Rotary and….. I hope everyone realizes that the money made from this wonderful event is given away, by the Rotary, to help support the wonderful library we have, the Ellicottville food pantry, and to families in need….just to name a few. When you attend an event like this, realize that is what it is all Kudos to all, Joann Duke

Ameri-Can New Additions

Tina Dillon

Washington Street Store Joins with Made In America Stores

Ameri-Can Store owner Liz with Made In America Store founder & CEO Mark Andol, and District Manager John Omlor.

Story by John Thomas Staff Writer Liz Boberg, owner of the Ameri-Can Store in Ellicottville, has announced a business arrangement with the Made In America Stores of Elma New York. Ms. Boberg opened the Ameri-Can Store a year ago featuring local artists and suppliers from both the US and Canada. The eclectic mix of products features clothing, jewelry, home décor items, art, ceramics and photography; all from artists from the area and on both sides of the border. Mark Andol founded the Made In America Store is

2008. The store features 100% made in America products. Since opening the first store in Alma, Mr. Andol has expanded the operation, and now has stores in McKinley Mall in Blasdell, Walden Galleria Mall in Cheektowaga, Eastern Hills Mall in Williamsville, Boulevard Mall in Amherst and the Niagara Fashion Outlets in Niagara Falls. The stores now feature some 500 products made exclusively in the USA. With their emphasis on homegrown products, the two stores seem to be a natural fit. Ms. Boberg insists she still will have Canadian products for sale

in her store. The “store in store” will be a separate section inside of Ms. Boberg’s store identified and designated specifically for Made In America products, supplied by Mr. Andol. Boberg has chosen a diverse product line to stock: American flags, home décor, gift items, and some Buffalo souvenir items. She will also sell a portable grill made by Mr. Andol’s own company. Thanks to the store in store concept, Boberg can purchase smaller quantities of items that are ordinarily sold by the truckload. The goods are supplied from the Made In America warehouse. Boberg points out, “I can purchase smaller quantities.” “I’m excited to be a representative for the Andol family and the Made In America dream,” says Ms. Boberg. She adds, “When you buy something 100% made in America, you are supporting American workers and their families, and I’m so proud to represent all that.” About those American flags, Mr. Andol points out, “A lot of people don’t realize that 50% of our flags are made overseas. That’s crazy.” His company goes through a three-step process to be sure that all products including the flags are completely made in the USA. “I think she’s going to be pleasantly surprised,” he says of his venture with Boberg. He points out the many festivals at Ellicottville will help bring in shoppers, and adds, “I think it will be a big win for Ellicottville.” The Made In America Store in store will launch in time for the Rock n’ Roll Festival September 16th through 18th.

Firefighter Arrested

Ellicottville Volunteer Firefighter Arrested on Vandalism Charges Story by John Thomas Staff Writer Last Friday night volunteer firefighter Morgan Manfreda-Morton, 28, was arrested on suspicion of burglary and criminal mischief. The charges stemmed from the discovery last Wednesday of the slashing of several tires on fire department vehicles. The Ellicottville police department in corporation with the county and state police departments investigated the incident. State police arrested Manfreda-Morton without

incident on Friday. She was arraigned in Ellicottville Town Court that night. Her next appearance will be in County Court at an unknown future date. Ms. Manfreda-Morton had been suspended by the department eight weeks ago for personnel issues, according to Acting Fire Chief Rob Germain. Her husband, Fire Chief Kevin Morton had resigned from the department three weeks ago for “personal reasons.” Acting Chief Germain said there had been some “intrapersonal issues” at the department, but they

had been kept “within the department.” He declined to elaborate what the issues may have been. The vehicles involved were an ambulance and a utility vehicle. They were back in service by Tuesday, and operations at the department were not affected. Acting Chief said the damage would be repaired at no cost to the taxpayers. He said insurance will cover the damage. Ms. Manfreda-Morton had been a volunteer with the department for about a year. Village Mayor and volunteer fireman, John Burrell declined to comment.

A Powerful Protein for Longevity network, upon which new cells can grow. Collagen is also required in the replacement and restoration of dead skin cells. Some collagens also function as protective coverings for delicate organs in the body such as the kidneys. Collagen production naturally declines with age, reducing the structural integrity of the skin and leading to sagging skin, the formation of lines and wrinkles and the weakening of cartilage in joints. Collagen is secreted by a variety of different cells, but primarily by connective tissue cells. While young, the body consistently produces collagen, but collagen synthesis begins to decline around the age of 40, with a dramatic reduction in synthesis in women after menopause. By the age of 60 there is typically a considerable decline in collagen production. • Collatrim Plus® is a hydrolyzed collagen in a powder form. It Strengthens the structural system.

for enthusiasts of floating down creeks. The website states that on the “Saturday an amateur dice run regatta will be held with any form of motor-less boat, running the Ischua Creek (Behind the Ischua town barn) & SR 16 to behind the Hinsdale American Legion (Approx. 7.0 miles) There will be five pit stops with free beverages for all paid participants at each stop followed by a chicken BBQ. Transportation will be provided to all entrants. Ample camping will be available on the Legion grounds along the creek. Live music/ DJ will be provided in the pavilion.” The weekend begins with the camping and registration and ends with cash and/ or trophy awards being given out. The registration to enter the regatta is $50 per person and they are trying to go paperless by having on-line registration as their main entry form. Camping costs $45 per site and allows space for two vehicles and tent space. All the proceeds go to the fire departments and legions and also will go towards a scholarship

Cappelli from the Rotary, their fundraising goal was exceeded. The available numbers speak to its success. Approximately 170 people attended, which set a new record. Twentyfour students from ECS volunteered as food servers. There were 48 items in the silent auction, and another eight items were auctioned off by guest auctioneer Brian Dunkleman. The live auction item that sold for the most money was the pen and ink portrait of Bob McCarthy in his Irish Leprechaun hat, created by local artist Shad Nowiki. The winning bid was $575.

The menu includes chargrilled meat and vegetable kabobs, Mediterranean-style rice, crisp farmstead salad, appetizers, homemade icecream and shortbread cookies. This year, for the first time, the dinner also includes brew from the Four Mile Brewing Company. Canticle Farm hosts the 8thAnnual Heavenly Harvest which is a fundraiser to support the Farm’s mission, to feed the hungry, but also to respect the earth. The Franciscan Sisters of Alleghany founded the twenty-acre Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Farm in 2001. It is a non-profit 501C3 corporation. Mark Printz, farm manager, said that the twenty-acre farm, divided by the Allegany River forms the North Farm and the South Farm. There are 7-8 acres in production and it employs approximately 10 seasonal employees and

for a graduating senior from Hinsdale Central School. The Falling Leaves Regatta is a growing annual event and is totally organized and set up to run smoothly and orderly even though alcohol is involved. There are strict rules for the safety of campers and boaters and to make sure everyone has fun. The website has a rule list that states no one under 18 will be allowed to enter without a parent or guardian. And if participants under 21 try to drink at one of the five pit stops they will be removed from the regatta. There is medical assistance and communication at all the pit stops as well. The pit stops are part of the competition for prizes and must be visited in order to win anything. The boater stops at the pit-stop and has a choice of beer or a soft drink while their boat number is checked off and the registrants roll the dice. All of the registrants get a plastic mug for use during the pit-stops and they must be used in order to compete for prizes. The route for the boat race down Ischua Creek starts at the Ischua town barn on Mill Street and is 7.0 miles, but for a shorter route participants can start at Farwell Road for a 5.1 mile float. Anything that floats without

a motor can be registered, but in the past mostly single kayaks were the most popular boats. Anything bigger has to have at least two participants on it. The Ischua Creek is classified as one of the few Class A trout streams by the NY State Dept. of Environmental Conservation. The stream is home to native trout, ospreys, herons, and the American Bald Eagle. Boaters will be likely to see deer, bear, otter, beaver and other aquatic wildlife during their venture. Registration sign in will start at 3pm on Friday the 9th at the Hinsdale American Legion on Route 16 and is easily identifiable by the F-4 Phantom Fighter Jet sitting in front of the post. There is plenty to do on the large expanse of Legion property for the registrants and families, including lighted horseshoe pits, a playground for children and a covered pavilion. There will be around the clock security at the campgrounds and portapotties and also food vendors. The Legion clubhouse is open for members and sponsored guests for legal beverages and also a food menu. For more information, check the website fallregatta. com or call 716-378-7943.

the Cornelius’s of Weed Ross Insurance. Their son Harrison loved McCarthy very much. They have hung it in his bedroom. Other prints of the work are available by calling Greg Cappelli at 4747832. Mr. Cappelli wanted to thank the guest chefs who made some of the outstanding food: Eileen McClure, Jack Atkinson, Ryan Monroe, and Tom Kneeland whose dessert table was truly outstanding. A record number of restaurants participated this year. They were: Balloons Restaurant & Nightclub, Cadillac Jacks, Centerplate, Dina’s, Ellicottville Brewing Company, Ilio DiPaolos Restaurant & Ringside Lounge, John Harvard’s Brew House, Katy’s Café & Catering, Katy’s Fly-in,

Madigans, Monroe Street Brick & Brew. Myers Steak House & Inn, The Birdwalk Restaurant, The Gin Mill, The Silver Fox Steakhouse, Slopeside, Tom’s Mom’s Cookies, Villaggio, and Watson’s Chocolates. Many people said it was the best food ever. Not to be forgotten are the sponsors of the event: M&T Bank, Sysco, US Foods, the Weed Ross Insurance Agency and Darleen and Travis Baugh. Holiday Valley and Centerplate provided the venue and a myriad of support services. Finally, Brian Dunkleman had the crowd howling with his lightning-fast repartee, jokes, and imitations. According to Mr. Cappelli, “He hit a home run and brought the event to a new level.”

“This year, we are adding many new lights to the trail which will interact well with the landscape and sculptures,” Sitler said. “We will also be working with local artists and performers on some special displays throughout the fourweek show.” Night Lights takes about two weeks to set up as there are over 1.25 miles of power lines and 300 lighting fixtures involved at the event. Adults will be charged $10 on weeknights and $15 on the weekend, while children age

seven and up will be $5 each night. All children age six and under will receive free admission. “I hope Night Lights inspires people to come back during the day to explore this amazing place even further,” Sitler added. For more information on Night Lights events and Griffis Sculpture Park, visit http:// or Griffis Sculpture Park is located at 6902 Mill Valley Road in East Otto, New York.

2-3 full time employees. Printz, majored in marketing at Rockport College and an Allegany lifetime resident, said that his marketing degree is “useful”. Canticle Farm also runs and supplies the Canticle Farm Market which is open Tuesday’s from 2:00 to 6:00 pm and is a vendor at the Olean R.E.A.P Farmers Market. According to its website Canticle Farm raises 35 varieties of tomatoes, 20 varieties of lettuce, 10 varieties of beans, 15 varieties of squash, 7 varieties of carrots and 12 varieties of onions. There is also a Winter Market, which offers winter vegetables and meat, cheese, and baking goods venders on Tuesdays at the same time. As a member of the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) movement, Canticle Farm generates income in large measure from the Spring sale of shares of the future produce to community members . This income allows the Farm to pay its planting costs. It also establishes

a relationship between the community member/ purchasers and the farmer which is the basic goal of the CSA farming movement. Printz said the vegetables are certified naturally grown and follow all the United States Department of Agriculture standards for organic vegetables. Canticle Farm began in 1998 when six members of the Justice and Peace Committee of the Franciscan Sisters of Alleghany attended an Earth Conference in Sylvania, Ohio. They were impressed with the possibility of starting a CSA farm. They did not let any grass grow under their feet and the Farm became an active ministry of the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany in 2001 and a 501 C3 non profit corporation in 2003. Its mission, to reverence, protect, and honor the sacredness of God’s creation, is translated into action by educating residents on sustainability, See HARVEST Page 9

Beat on the Street: If You Could Instantly Gain a Skill You Don’t Presently Have What Would It Be?

By Chad Neal Skills we possess are gained as we grow in life. Sometimes the skills are learned through training and some are learned by living everyday. Sometimes skills seem natural in some people as well. As humans we are limited to the powers we have, and can only dream of having a super power like flying or mind reading. Having an extra talent that most do not is highly revered. It’s a good thing to be able to make life better somehow by having a little more knowledge and expertise in any such subject. Knowing how to make a situation less difficult or say even less deadly will definitely be held in high esteem. Just a little more knowledge in any subject can make it a better day for anyone involved. Learning as much as possible is a superior way to making life easier and with less struggle. Alas we can’t all know everything. If you could instantly gain a skill that you don’t presently have, what would it be?

Pennsylvania, especially the Bradford area. They have also connected with the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford attracting summer interns as well as lecturing at the University. “Our commitment is to provide 20% of the harvest to agencies which serve the poor. Through grants and other donations 30 to 35% of the summer harvest over the past four years went to 12 different local organizations including the Olean, Hinsdale, Limestone, Cattaraugus County Community Action, Salvation Army, Creekside Chapel food pantries; and the Bradford Women’s Domestic Violence Shelter, Genesis House, the Warming House,

Friendship Table in Bradford, and the Bridge, Sacred Heart Church, Portville,” she said. The Farm continues to improve its operation adding an enclosed wash station in 2011; a third high tunnel for growing in 2012 and solar panels on the barn roof. It is also a member of the Southern Tier West Regional Development and Planning Board Task Force and in 2011 began Camp Creation for children grades 1-6.

of their way to sway other districts’ students to attend the school. District officials said they have had about 600 new registrations this year, with many of the new families planning to come to the district moving within its boundaries. Before taking other action in preparation for the start of school, officials also took a

look back at last year. At the high school, 384 credits were earned by students taking Jamestown Community College courses. Students saved $76,000 by taking the courses while still in high school. Board members also approved advisors for the upcoming year, along with some substitutes, cafeteria workers and other staff.

are not a good golfer, and we encourage non-chamber members to come play as well,” says McFadden. Teams are encouraged, but if you don’t wish to put together a team, sign up, and the Chamber will put you on a team. McFadden emphasizes the non-competitiveness of the event, “It’s a social thing more than anything.” There will be some prizes awarded at the end of the evening, and everybody has a chance at winning. There is no point in living and working in a resort town if you don’t get to take advantage of it. The Chamber’s 9-hole Golf Outing is a chance for us to enjoy a great golf

course, and a terrific dinner all served at one of WNY’s finest resorts. Come out, enjoy your friends, relax with a few holes of golf, and remember why you live here. “It’s a chance for all the business members (and non-members) to take a break from the busy summer we’ve had and spend an evening socializing with their neighbors.” Sign up early; there are only 64 slots for the golf. To sign up, you can send a check made payable to the Chamber to PO Box 456, Ellicottville, NY 14731. You can register by phone by calling the Chamber 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Friday.
