More than 300 entrepreneurs and business leaders from across the Buffalo Niagara region are expected to attend the ninth annual full day program. Entrepalooza ‘13 features keynote speaker Susan Scott, best-selling author and founder of Fierce, Inc.

Scott’s books include Fierce Conversations and Fierce Leadership. Entrepalooza ’13 also includes Expo & Experts, featuring subject matter experts presenting interactive roundtables on leadership topics and more than 50 locally-based organizations exhibiting in a tradeshow format. Applications to exhibit and present are currently available on “Entrepalooza is all about bringing business leaders together to build their leadership skill sets and grow their organizations,” said MJ Caliendo, chair of Entrepalooza and CEO of a local Vistage International Group. “Four See LEADERS page 9

Spirits Raises the Roof E’Vill Spirits’ New Addition will Allow for Class Space

Story by John Thomas, Staff Writer

After more than a decade at its location on Monroe Street E-Ville Spirits is raising the roof – literally. A roughly 400 square foot section of the roof at center of the store is going to be raised to create a larger second story. Owner Shannon Carscallen says the change is necessary because “the store is just too small to do what we want to do.” The new area will become an educational center where they will put on wine tastings, scotch educational forums, and other classes. “We want the community to be able to take part in some of the things we are going to do up there,” she adds. The current office and bathroom on the second See SPIRITS page 9

Remedy On Deck

Zoning Board Grants Nature’s Remedy New Deck Story by John Thomas, Staff Writer

Nature’s Remedy owner Gretchen Mendall was at the Village Zoning Board of Appeals meeting Tuesday night to continue her request to extend the deck currently under construction at the back of her store on Monroe. As part of her move last summer, she took over the building formally occupied by the former Double Diamond establishment. She extended the back of the store about twelve feet into the parking lot. The plans included a four-foot deck off the back of the addition. Ms. Mendall had asked to change the plan and extend the deck another four feet to The extension of the back of NaRemedy can be seen along create an eight-foot wide deck off the ture’s with the four-foot deck under conSee ZBA page 9

Checking Out The Tunes & Other Stuff In Ellicottville By Robby & Sherman Wilkens The beautiful sunshine of last weekend has continued on to this week. Now, as we enter May’s second weekend, we may not be floating in SUN & FUN, which has been enhancing Ellicottville’s Spring Time. Last weekend’s Ya Gotta Regatta was a real hit because of the wonderful weather we just experienced and the April snow that kept Holiday Valley open until mid April. That snow added to our creek and river levels, plus the wonderful sunshine, made this year’s Ya Gotta Regatta.....

After being located for the last three years at the Church of Christ on Elizabeth St, the Ellicottville Farmers Market will be moving to its new location on the front lawn of the Ellicottville Town Hall. Organizers felt that although the old location was more than adequate, it was a little off the beaten path and the Town Hall corner location would be much more visible to vehicle and pedestrian traffic. The Ellicottville Farmers Market is sponsored and managed by a local organization known as REAP which stands for Rural Enterprising Association of Proprietors. REAP is a

non-profit corporation created 27 years ago by a group of southern tier New York farmers who were looking for ways to get their farm products directly onto the tables of local consumers. In recent years, being able to buy fresh produce and other products straight from local farms has gained popularity as more and more people become better educated and aware about the advantages of buying fresh and eating healthy. REAP was at the forefront of this trend and has a system of farm market management in place which is second to none. Three years ago, when the Ellicottville See MARKET page 9

Honor Society Salutes Students

Awards Dinner in Olean Tributes National Honor Society Students from 12 Schools in County By, Nicholas Pircio WPIG, 95.7 FM

“Truly amazing” is how guest speaker University President Sister Margaret Carney of St. Bonaventure University described the accomplishments of National Honor Society students at the 42nd Annual Recognition Dinner held on May first at the Premier Banquet Center in Olean. About 400 students and adults were present for the banquet, which pays tribute to Honor Society members from the twelve

Cattaraugus County schools. Sister Margaret reflected on the values of character, scholarship, leadership, and service which are espoused by the National Honor Society. She shared the stories of two persons who possessed these attributes, saying they, “Really transformed the world, and for the second of them, even (helped) create this region of western New York.” The first role model, John Harrison, solved the biggest technical See HONOR page 9

She’s taken on a couple more responsibilities since then like label head and producer. Right on Time is Wilson’s fifth album, her first in three years and we think it’s the best since her first album, Here for the Party. recently caught up with Wilson and here’s what she had to say. Nash: How would you define this record? Wilson: It’s hard on this album. When we were trying to get it uploaded to iTunes we were like “What is it?” There are three or four country songs on there, a couple of rock songs, there’s a forties sounding song, there’s a pop song, there’s a blues song. We cover all of that on this record. I don’t want to just be in the country category. Nash: Unlike past albums, you only wrote one song on this album. How do you pick your songs? Wilson: I’ve got to record the best songs. They have to move me and sometimes I write songs that don’t move me that much. You’ve got to be honest with yourself with stuff like that. Nash: Still Rollin’ is a great song. It has a real seventies Jackson Brown kind of feel. Is that what you were going after? Wilson: Being the one song I co-wrote on the album, it has a lot of my influence in it. Every band you heard in the seventies is an influence in that song. There was no demo on that song and there wasn’t even a scratch

vocal to play for the band. When we got in the studio I just picked up my guitar and said, “it goes like this.” Nash: Do you have a favorite song on the album? Wilson: I do. It’s a Becca Bramlett song called The Gypsy in Me. There are not too many songs anymore that are just that . . . naked. That’s the best word I have for it. It’s stark, alone and real. It reminds me of Les Miserable. The moment when Ann Hathaway shows up with absolutely no make up on and sings that song. You’re frozen for four minutes. Because she really looks like hell and it doesn’t matter . . . it’s beautiful. Nash: Did The Gang of Outlaws Tour with ZZ Top and 3 Doors Down last year have any influence on this album since that was your first tour with noncountry artists? Wilson: I’ve done shows with Kid Rock, Skynyrd and 38 Special so I’ve played to that audience before but yes this was the first like this. It was a great opportunity for me to jump on a tour like that because unless I get out there and cross-reference this for people, some of them may never even know that I can rock. Sometimes little things like I’m classified as a country star get in the way. You can’t go into the rock section and find Gretchen Wilson but the same people that like Kid Rock and ZZ Top like Gretchen Wilson. For me it was an opportunity as a record label and an artist to reach more people. And I feel like ZZ Top has influenced me from the first album. They’ve always been

Dave Stringfellow Honored HV’s Dave Stringfellow Honored As Paid Patroller Of The Year

Dave Stringfellow is a year round employee at Holiday Valley who shifts from ski patrol activities three seasons a year to a monitor and first aider at Sky High during the summer months. As a full time ski patroller Dave has several major off-season patrol related responsibilities. He is the architect of literally miles of fencing that is installed during the winter. He is in charge of lift evacuation equipment, caches and actual lift evacuation drills during the off-season and ski season. The lifts are frequently used during the off-season for social as well as athletic events. He has written both the summer and winter chair lift evacuation plan documents necessary for the state regulators. Dave is also

in charge of maintenance and upgrading of all signage at the resort for hill identification and state inspections in the winter, and the control of summer guests who use the trails for hiking and mountain biking. During the fall preparation for the ski season, he is the patrol’s advisor and instructor for evacuation procedures and training for all resort departments from mountain crew, ski instructors, safety patrol as well as the required ski patrol. During the ski season itself he is a true example of “Joe Patroller”. He runs toboggans, drives snowmobiles, dispatches, and performs OEC skills as necessary.  He is in the patrol room at 7 AM, ready to set up the hill five days a week. He’s

even known to occasionally hike to the top of the mountain and sneak in a few runs before the lifts open. He is a CPR / AED and OEC instructor and first responder for his local ambulance squad. After serving every administrative position possible on patrols and in the region, including Region Director, he has just relinquished the Region treasurer position. National Ski Patrol awards are not new to him and in 2009 he was honored with the Distinguished Service Award. Showing no signs of slowing down Dave continues to set an example for the younger patrollers of what can be accomplished as a leader on their patrol, region, division and as a National Ski Patrol patroller.

NOW HIRING’s Jerry Holthouse Interviews Gretchen Wilson an influence on my life. They influenced me more personally on the tour. Just to know they’ve been doing it this long and they still love it. They still make it work. You always wonder in this business “when am I going to be to old?” It’s just in your face all of the time. Nash: What was it like starting your own label and going from being just an artist to doing everything? Wilson: It took a lot of time to figure it out. You don’t know where to start when you have to buy a barcode. There’s so much to it legally and paper work and setting everything up. I kind of just took it on like everything else in my life. I’m either out of the music business or I’m gonna figure this out and quick like. I’ve always done my best work when I was up against the wall, had very little time and I was stressed out. That’s usually when I make it happen. And I’m fine working under that kind of pressure. The more time I have, I’ll end up screwing it up. Or talking myself out of something I should have done. The real difficult part was the financial aspect of it. What a lot of stars do that I didn’t is partner up with another company and call it Redneck slash whoever. And the reason people do that is it’s a huge risk to take with your own money. But I did not want to have to sit in a room and ask someone else if a song was good enough to go on the record. I felt like I owed myself the opportunity to make the record I had been hearing all these years without having to ask someone who doesn’t have a musical bone in his or her body. Sorry, was that too harsh? Nash: No I get it. Wilson: And you know what? Redneck records will probably never sell 4 million copies of anything out of the box but the good news is, I don’t have to. I’m also not in a twenty-story building paying 400 employees that don’t know what the hell they’re doing. In my mind, all I have to do is make enough money to make more records, and then I’ll be happy. —Jerry Holthouse

Jack Quavis – “There Is No I In EVL”

Jack (left) Hanging out at the new Main Chalet at Holiday Valley Resort with the President of I SKI NY, Scott Brandi.

By Kristy Koebel If you’re a local or just visit Ellicottville often, you most likely have heard the name ‘Quavis’ here and there. By day, Jack Quavis is popping in and out of local businesses filming his EVL TV videos, depending on the season, updating his video blog recapping his latest ski trip, and by night he’s snapping pictures of all the fun to be had in the bars and restaurants. Quavis is all over, striving to keep the locals and visitors up to date with what’s happening in this fun little town. Quavis started coming to Ellicottville when he was about 5 years old to visit family friends. The town back then was much quieter but still had a very unique feel to it. He has now lived here for 6 years and reminisced on the atmosphere when he started to come around the town more often. “Everyone was always having fun,” he said. Everyone at the resorts, in the restaurants, and in the bars had smiles on their faces; this gave Quavis the idea to share this great place with whoever he

could and that’s when the EVL Rocks website was born. EVL Rocks has been around for 7 years now, and when it was first created Facebook wasn’t what it is now. Quavis started the website as a place to archive and share these event and nightlife photos he was collecting. It was the perfect place for people who haven’t visited Ellicottville yet to see all the fun they were missing! Jack Quavis was beginning to become pretty well known around the nightlife in Ellicottville. If he snapped your picture, you knew you could find it in the next few days on his website. He started to realize the website was getting a little bigger than he thought when people were actually approaching him and asking for their picture to be taken. While the town visitors were starting to recognize Quavis, he had more on his mind than just EVL Rocks. He embarked on 2 major ski trips the past 2 winters and skied over 60 resorts. This was the start of two other projects, and Not only

New Springville Business Opening at MOC One Speed

Buncy, a longtime skateboarding enthusiast, said he saw a huge hole in the Springville skate scene. “Its main thing is to keep people doing their hobbies,” he said.

By Byron Morgan Kevin Buncy, 23, is planning on opening a new skate shop, named MOC one, on Cascade Drive in Springville. Buncy, a longtime skateboarding enthusiast, said he saw a huge hole in the Springville skate scene. “Its main thing is to keep people doing their hobbies,” he said.

Currently, Springville has a skate park but nowhere to buy skateboard decks or alternative sports gear. “Basically it will be anything I can get my hands on for any street hobby,” Buncy explained. “It won’t be a full line of everything because it’s not a big enough shop, but I’ll be able to order almost anything.” The buzz has already hit the

skate park with a few local riders getting sponsorship with MOC one. Local skateboarder Nicholas Esthimer said he planned to ride for MOC one and is very excited to see a skate shop finally opening. “I feel so lucky to be a part of it (MOC one), and I hope everyone appreciates all the hard work everyone has done to make this fantasy a reality,” Esthimer said. Buncy had planned to open June 1, 2013, but has he run into a setback while trying to set up orders through wholesale distributors. “Working with the distributors is dragging a little bit,” Buncy said, “but I’m working on the website because they want to know how the shop will be.” MOC one shares a storefront with Springville’s NAME tattoo shop. Buncy said he planned for MOC one to share operating hours with the tattoo shop until it gets up and running at full speed. “Everyone coming into the tattoo shop is really excited for the skate shop,” Buncy said of the shop’s location. “They basically go hand in hand.”

Architectural Spotlight Paradise Found

Story and photos By John Thomas Staff Writer What would you give for a secluded home on over ten acres of land that backs up to woods and has a private pond? What if it was even better? What if it also included an income property and large two-story barn for storage? What if I stop asking questions and just tell you about it? Located about fifteen minutes out of Ellicottville, on the Franklinville/Machias line the home is on a generous piece of property. Two of the acres are a pond with a dock. The

income property is a separate three-bedroom house adjacent to the storage barn. Across the pond is the main house, some cleared open area, and the rest of the property is forest. The main home is as spacious as the property. The ground floor has two family rooms, one of which sports a large wood-burning fireplace, perfect for an evening reading by the fire. A second family room can house the entertainment system for those who like a lighter diversion. A large master bedroom is here as well as a roomy bath with a large whirlpool tub. Up on the second floor is

the kitchen and dining room. The spacious kitchen has wood cabinets and lots of counter space. The dining room is one of the largest you’ll find anywhere. It can accommodate even the grandest of dining tables. The deck off the dining room faces the forest. But it’s the deck off the kitchen were you’ll spend most of your time. It overlooks the pond and the view of the hills a short distance away. Looking down I can see several fish swimming in lazy circles. Another master bedroom and large bath are on this floor as well. The third floor is unfinished and can be turned into anything you might desire. So what would you give for a quiet rural dreamland, and a touch of paradise? The answer is that anything it takes would be well worth it. For more information on this home, contact Dave Blanchard, Licensed Associate Broker with Holiday Valley Realty Co. 716-699-3941.

The home is close to the edge of the pond, with steps down to the dock.

(Pictured left to right) 1. The view from the upstairs deck is of the two-acre pond. The rental house and barn are on the opposite side. 2. The dining room is fit for the grandest of large family dining tables.

(Pictured left to right) 1. The main family room has a fieldstone, wood-burning fireplace. Perfect for curling up with a book on a winter evening. 2. The kitchen has lots of space for cooking for a crowd, plenty of cabinets and counter space. 3. The second family room has plenty of room for relaxing, and entertainment center or game tables.

Checking Out The Tunes & Other Stuff In Ellicottville

Written By: Robby & Sherman Wilkens

The beautiful sunshine of last weekend has continued on to this week. Now, as we enter May’s second weekend, we may not be floating in SUN & FUN, which has been enhancing Ellicottville’s Spring Time. Last weekend’s Ya Gotta Regatta was a real hit because of the wonderful weather we just experienced and the April snow that kept Holiday Valley open until mid April. That snow added to our creek and river levels, plus the wonderful sunshine, made this year’s Ya Gotta Regatta one of the best ever. Because of the weather, the golf conditions at both Holiday Valley and Elkdale Country Club are going strong. Holiday Valley’s back nine opened last Friday, in time for the beginning of Men’s League and is in quite good shape. Call either location for a T time, then get out and enjoy the good times that a round of golf brings to those who play. Our music and other FUN STUFF are also right up there.

Vitamin D is headlined by Vincent DeRosa. From their web site, this three or maybe four piece rock, soul, pop band’s music has a neat positive flare while making funk, fresh music. Their one love is the universal beats that they create from the influences of Jimi Hendrix, Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley, James Brown and the like. This really neat show will draw a crowd. So you may wish to arrive early to enjoy Balloons wonderful Fish Fry before the FUN really gets going. Following Vitamin D, Personable DJ John Barry will take over with his very friendly, LIVE, Personality Show Off Show from Balloons Sound & Light Booth. As always, John’s show will include neat danceable tunes and FUN conversation till close. Returning to 9:00 PM Friday, The Gin Mill will have Two Guys Drinking Beer on stage. Ron and Terry, the two guys, are also the heart and soul of the band West, who played here last weekend. These two talented and excellent musicians will create a very FUN Gin Mill Music & Party Night with their good tunes and general silliness. Also remember The Gin Mill serves their excellent and reasonably priced menu, till midnight on weekends. Also at 9:00 PM Friday Madigans will be hosting Big Ken’s, Chance and Ken’s Mothers Day Appreciation Party featuring the music of The Untouchables. This multi-instrument veteran WNY Rock ‘N’ Roll Band performs a neat blend of R&B, Oldies Rock, and Classic Soul along with several other music styles. They design their show to the likes of the crowd. This annual Madigans Mother’s Day Event is open to all who wish to honor their Moms, while enjoying a really FUN Madigans music night.

Conquering Inflammation and Pain

By Lilian D. Dirito, C.N.H.P. Certified Natural Health Professional Holistic Wellness Coach

In the last few years there have been several studies and research in regards to inflammation at a cellular level. Inflammation is now cited as the primary culprit of dozens of diseases ranging from heart disease to dementia and diabetes. A large number of recommendations have been suggested from diet changes to supplementing with Omega 3 oils, antioxidants and more. There are several factors to consider in preventing the inflammation of the cells. Your body reinvents itself or recreates itself regularly. The skin cells are completely replaced in 28 days, the skeletal system is rebuilt about every five years. Since the body is constantly regenerating itself, the new cells require certain nutrients and building components to function properly and be healthy. When you give your body the nutritional tools it needs it will prevent disease and heal itself one cell at a time. Inflammation is part of this process, the cells get toxic, the oxygen is not circulating, they cannot absorb nutrients properly and as a result they are slow in eliminating waste and toxins.

Vitamins are needed as cofactors, where they work together with minerals and essential fatty acids to bind cellular messages made of aminoacids to other cells. Minerals transfer energy. For instance inside the red blood cells iron is responsible for transferring oxygen from red blood cells to all other cells in the body.

The number one reason is that it helps to slow inflammation, which it is well known it can cause chronic pain and many other ailments. 2.- It may neutralize free radicals and the damage they cause. 3.Provides superior antioxidant protection against free radicals, toxins and pollutants. 4.Helps to relieve chronic pain from joints, back and neck. 4.-Soothes the gastro-intestinal tract from inflammatory conditions. 6.-Safeguards the brain from oxidative stress. 7.- Prevents oxidation of LDL cholesterol in the blood vessels and the brain. 8.- Optimizes liver function by protecting lover cells and triggering liver activity. 9.- Prevents premature aging throughout the body by protecting cells, slowing inflammation and reducing cellular damage. 10.- Improves oxygen utilization in the brain and throughout the body. Turmeric contains an unusually high level of an active ingredient called curcumin. Widely studied by numerous prestigious

research institutions around the world, curcumin is a potent antioxidant that can be isolated, standardized, and encapsulated. A study published in the November 2006 issue of the Arthritis & Rheumatism demonstrated that curcuminoids in the body inhibit the production of certain chemicals (enzymes) that communicate to the body to produce inflammatory proteins. Dr. Heuvel says that many people wonder if you can use the food-grade turmeric powder from your kitchen spice rack to achieve these therapeutic benefits. Research shows that in order to get enough of the active ingredient (curcumin) to achieve the full benefits of turmeric, you would need to consume 26.3 grams (26,300mg) of the root on a daily basis. In superior quality supplement products like Curcumin BP, the turmeric content is standardized to contain a guaranteed amount of the active constituents. This blend of concentrated curcuminoids known as the C3 Complex, which provides a quantified 95% of the curcuminoid activity proven to be significantly more effective than the powdered root. Turmeric and curcumin are generally regarded as safe. It should not be used by people with gallbladder conditions as it stimulates bile acid secretion. It is also not recommended to be taken during pregnancy. For more information please call Nature’s Remedy in Ellicottville at 716-699-4372.

problem facing 17th century navigators. His invention, the maritime chronometer, was eventually adopted as the standard mechanism for solving the problem of how to establish an accurate measure of longitude. Before the chronometer, ships, lives, cargoes, and naval battles were all lost, because there was no way to be sure of the accuracy of any given location. The second person mentioned by Sister Margaret was Nicholas Devereaux, the land developer who, along with others such as Dewitt Clinton and Martin Van Buren, persevered in the dream to build the Erie Canal and thus open up the country for economic development. The Erie Canal, said Sister Margaret, “Was in the nineteenth century what the internet is for us today. It was the linkage that gave New York the right to call itself the Empire State.” Sister Margaret told the students that these men persevered against enormous odds to achieve their goals. “They were incredible examples of qualities you possess and that you are being asked to hold on to as bedrock foundations for the rest of your life.

She envisions more classes on various topics and hopes to be holding classes at least once a month. Bob Duke is hoping to expand on their popular scotch seminars. Interest in them has grown since they started holding them two years ago. Presently attendees must cluster around the many wine racks, and as Duke says, “clutter up the center of the store.” At present most of the seminars are held in January, February and March. Duke says the new

space should allow them to broaden the schedule. Plans call to create a space that matches the rustic style of the downstairs store. Shannon has contracted with local artisans to create furniture made from old wine barrels. The new space is not the only thing that Carscallen has in mind for the store. She wants to start offering wine and food pairings in conjunction with some of the local restaurants. Though participating restaurants have not been selected yet, it will be one more way that E-Ville Spirits will be raising its profile in the community.

considerations. The area behind the buildings along Monroe is private parking for the stores and restaurants. Board members asked if the new deck would cut down on parking. Ms. Mendall replied that most cars when they park pull right up to the building (or deck) so parking would not be affected. It was determined that snow removal would not be affected. In looking over the plot plans it appeared there was a four-foot right of way designated on the

spot where the deck was to be built. It was explained, years ago when Mr. Fitzpatrick sold the building he had established the right of way for customers from adjacent stores to cross along the back of the establishments. Now all that area is common parking and the right of way is no longer needed. “A right of way to nowhere,” quipped one of the board members. A motion was made to allow the variance to build the eight-foot deck, which passed.
