The first weekend in May/last weekend in April is set aside each year for the annual Great Valley Firemen’s Regatta, when the river levels are up to their ideal sailing levels and boaters have a fair shot at good weather. “Ya Gotta Regatta” is celebrating its 36th year and is set to take place this Saturday, April 30. Although only one day is dedicated to the event, it has become tradition for participants to make a weekend-long celebration of it, setting up camp and preparing for a good time. While the Regatta is also known as a canoe race, the participants like to take creative liberty with that notion by racing anything that floats, bringing an enjoyable approach to the event as participants try to outdo each other every year. The Regatta is 14 miles long and boasts enough fun for spectators as well as participants. With five beer stops, food, music and refreshments, you know you’re in for a party.

Taste of the Southtowns This Sunday Restaurants of the Region Participate to Help Sanctuary in Springville BY MEAGHAN O’ROURKE ST. BONAVENTURE UNIVERSITY

Griffis Sculpture Park Exhibit: “The Living Wall” UB Architect Students Showcase Opens April 29... Pg 3 Freshman architecture students from the University at Buffalo have designed and are building a 96-foot-long string of wooden micro-dwellings that will open to the public later this month at Griffis Sculpture Park. Assembly of “The Living Wall” will conclude this week.

Up Close: Cassetta Endowment for the Arts ... Pg 8 In 1995, a man decided he was going to keep arts and music alive at the Ellicottville Central School by challenging the community to raise funds that would provide opportunities for the students.

This Sunday, May 1, 2011 marks the ninth annual Taste of the Southtowns. Bring an appetite and stop by the Springville Fire Hall, Main Street, Springville, between 11 a.m.-5 p.m. for delicious food and great music and raffles. All proceeds from the event will go to Gooseneck Hill Waterfowl Sanctuary. Rosemary Miner and her husband established the waterfowl sanctuary in 1983 when two ducks wandered onto their property. The privately funded sanctuary currently houses 500 endangered and protected birds. Six local establishments prepared their best dishes to serve to attendees and impress four judges at the event. “Professional judges choose dishes like the best meat, best seafood, best dessert, best overall, and judges choice,” said Miner. “We give the winners a big plaque.

GREAT VALLEY FIREMAN’S REGATTA: APRIL 30-MAY 1 ~ GREAT VALLEY, NY


Page 2

~ The Villager ~ April 28 - May 4, 2011

Publisher’s Word “You Gotta...”

We have a conflict of fun this weekend, folks! The only question is “which one do I do”? Well, it depends… The 36th annual Great Valley Firemen’s Regatta is ready to rock this weekend, with over 3,300 participants looking forward to this annual rite of spring. More than 1,500 boats, rafts, and (basically) anything that floats will be plying the waters of

Great Valley Creek on Saturday at 9 am. Thankfully for the “boaters” there will be pit stops along the way to make sure these dedicated paddlers won’t die of thirst. You don’t have to drink beer, but I understand it aids in your paddling technique. I’ll let you know – this year I’m going to be one of the participants and will be enjoying the camaraderie of some of my more intellectual friends. Looking forward to this introspective experience and stimulating conversations. Yup… Even though Great Valley’s annual soiree has been around for 36 years, it’s a youngster when compared to our other, perhaps more family-oriented, event. It’s the weekend for neighboring Franklinville to host their 49th Annual WNY Maple Festival, a weekend filled with entertainment and incredible food. I’ve been to past Maple Fest “All U Can Eat” breakfasts, (they serve pancakes – huh go

figure), and I can guarantee you’ll need a nice nap when you get home! I would recommend for anyone who’s participating in the road races set up for 9 am to eat AFTER the race. And don’t forget to check out the sugaring demonstrations in front of the school – it’s amazing how much work goes into a quart of nummy maple syrup. A quick ‘welcome’ to our newest member of the Villager team – outside sales expert Jennie Acklin. Jenny’s going to fit in very nicely with our gang – she’s a graphic designer who owns her own business and she has a terrific personality! We’re lucky to have her… So, dear readers, whether you “Gotta Regatta” or “Gotta Maple Fest” just make sure you and your family aren’t sitting around the hacienda this weekend. All work and no play make for a really long work week to follow. You wouldn’t want that now, would you? Until next week! JZ

“Routes to Art” County-Wide Studio Tour Exhibits Artists at Memorial Library in May “Routes to Art” is Cattaraugus County’s open studio tour, in which many local artists will have their studios open to the public .This year, 43 artists will open their doors across Cattaraugus County and Seneca Nation of Indians. The Ellicottville Memorial Library is hosting 3 artists for this years tour: Keith McKale, Jil St. Ledger-Roty, and Dee Smith. They are currently exhibiting a few pieces of their artwork in the library’s gallery space through May, and will be in attendance in the Library’s Community Room with a larger selection of their work on May 21, 22, and 23. Keith McKale is self-taught; he has been carving all his life and using a scroll saw for about 20 years. This is his first year exhibiting in Routes to Art, and in fact, this is the first time he has publicly exhibited his artwork. Keith’s artwork focuses on nature, specifically wildlife, and he uses a variety of wood from his property near Ellicottville. Jil St Ledger-Roty is an award

winning photographer, and says this about her images, “ My photographs are an invitation to go beneath the surface and open the portals of wonder and delight found all around us”. Jil’s evocative images are often photographed while she is hiking with her Australian Shepherd, Selkie near her home in Franklinville. Dee Smith, of Bradford PA, is a watercolor painter of considerable accomplishment, but she continues to push the boundaries of her art, working in a variety of media, and painting a variety of subjects. Says Dee, “It’s exciting to be able to paint a landscape, flower, or still life that provides the viewer with a scene that evokes depth and emotion“. The Ellicottville Memorial Library is located at 6499 Maples Road in Ellicottville, NY. Regular Library hours are 10 to 5 daily except Sunday. Evening hours are 5-8pm Tuesday and Wednesday. The Library Community Room will be open for Routes to Art on

Griffis’ “Living Wall” University at Buffalo Architect Students Opening Reception April 29

The UB School of Architecture and Planning is inviting the public as well as students, professors and critics to attend an opening reception and dedication ceremony for “The Living Wall” at 1 p.m. on April 29 at the main entrance of the Griffis Sculpture Park, 6902 Mill Valley Road, East Otto in Cattaraugus County.

are Clinical Associate Professor Shadi Nazarian and Adjunct Assistant Professors Nicholas Bruscia and Matthew Hume. This year’s Living Wall, which consists of 12 microdwellings, is the second of its kind. Last year’s freshman class erected a similar community of tiny buildings, but the faculty members say that this year’s project will be distinct in the following ways: Last year’s Living Wall was straight. The formation of this year’s wall is closer to that of a boomerang, with a bend in the center. Some of the pods that form this year’s wall are about 12 feet high -significantly higher than any part of last year’s wall. This year’s wall contains a wider variety of geometries, with some individual units incorporating curved or pyramidal forms. Working in groups of six to seven, about 80 students were tasked with creatively transforming uniform, wooden volumes measuring 6 by 6 by 8 feet to incorporate an entrance, day lighting, natural ventilation, and a minimum of five sleeping spaces. The collaboration required at every phase, from design through construction, is giving students a taste of what the profession of architecture is like in the real world. Teamwork is a critical skill for architects, who must work not only with

each other, but with clients, engineers and contractors as well. Currently, the students are fabricating their projects in the architecture department’s Materials and Methods Workshop on UB’s South Campus. After assembling the structures at Griffis, members of each group will spend 24 hours living inside the creations. Occupying the spaces will give students a better understanding of the successes and shortcomings of their designs. Building and inhabiting a common structure also helps to instill a sense of community among freshmen who will be learning and studying together for three more years. Ultimately, The Living Wall challenges us all to think about our notions of privacy and how much space we need to live comfortably. The University at Buffalo is a premier researchintensive public university, a flagship institution in the State University of New York system and its largest and most comprehensive campus. UB’s more than 28,000 students pursue their academic interests through more than 300 undergraduate, graduate and professional degree programs. Founded in 1846, UB is a member of the Association of American Universities.

Freshman architecture students from the University at Buffalo have designed and are building a 96-foot-long string of wooden micro-dwellings that will open to the public later this month at Griffis Sculpture Park. Assembly of “The Living Wall” will conclude this week. The UB School of Architecture and Planning is inviting the public as well as students, professors and critics to attend an opening reception and dedication ceremony for “The Living Wall” at 1 p.m. on April 29 at the main entrance of the Griffis Sculpture Park, 6902 Mill Valley Road, East Otto in Cattaraugus County. The installation will stay up for at least 18 months at Griffis, where visitors will be able to climb on, over and through the interconnected micro-dwellings. Information on Griffis is available online at http://www.griffispark.org. “Creating a full-scale structure gives first-year students an opportunity to see, firsthand, what the design and construction process is like from start to finish. They’ve gone from drawings and models to building a full-scale project,” said Christopher Romano, UB clinical assistant professor and one of four coordinating faculty members overseeing the students’ work.

Alliance with Community Hospitals Strengthens Capabilities Upper Allegheny Health System (UAHS) today announced that Olean General Hospital (OGH) has become a new member of the Pennsylvania Mountains Healthcare Alliance (PMHA), a consortium of 20 community hospitals dedicated to enhancing the ability of member hospitals to provide patient centered community-based care. UAHS member hospital Bradford Regional Medical Center (BRMC) has been a member of PMHA since 2005. “Our membership with PMHA allows Olean General Hospital to collaborate with premier community hospitals in the region to better adapt to changes in the healthcare field,” said Timothy J. Finan, president and CEO of Upper Allegheny Health System and member hospitals Bradford Regional Medical Center and Olean General Hospital. “Our affiliation with PMHA allows

Olean General to gain access to multiple programs and services that will help ensure enhanced efficiency and effectiveness for many hospital departments.” Since 1998, PMHA initiatives have delivered millions of dollars in value to its member hospitals. PMHA has been involved in the creation of selfinsured risk pools in the areas of medical malpractice, health and dental insurances, which have helped to insulate member hospitals against the rising cost of insurance premiums. Recently, PMHA has worked diligently in strategic areas such as supply chain, revenue cycle and technology. Other members of the PMHA include ACMH Hospital (Kittanning, PA), Bradford Regional Medical Center, Brookville Hospital, Charles Cole Memorial Hospital (Coudersport, PA), Clarion Hospital, Clearfield

Ellicottville, New York

The education of our children is of utmost importance. No, math, science, and literature are not the only important subjects in school; art and music have their own significance too. However art and music programs are quickly disappearing from schools as many do not see them as “important” to a child’s education. What would life be without melodies and rhythms as well as watercolors and brush strokes? In 1995, a man decided he was going to keep arts and music alive at the Ellicottville Central School by challenging the community to raise funds that would provide opportunities for the students. Tony Cassetta wanted to give something back to a community that had given him so much, and thus created the Cassetta Endowment Fund. Tony had built friendships and a wonderful life in Ellicottville since 1960, and enjoyed many seasons of skiing and community activities. So he set up this fund originally by donating $10,000 to the Ellicottville Central School. Mr. Cassetta asked members of the community to match his donation and he would add another $10,000 on to the grand total. The community met and surpassed their goal and ended up with a grand total of $32,000 to fund programs dedicated to art and music activities. Tony, who had become the “trustee” of this fund, deposited the money with the school into three different bond, stock, and CD accounts. This way, the interest and gains on the three accounts could then be used to put on programs for the

The Cassetta Endowment Fund was designed to reach out to bigger populations (of students) with enriching programs from which they can learn. students at the school. It was a much better idea to invest the money and gain from the initial $32,000 instead of spending it. This way there will always be money coming from that first lump sum that the community raised so many years ago. The Ellicottville Central School has held numerous programs for all ages of students over the years. Fifteen to be exact, and over those years the fund has “earned” about $80,000 from interest income and capital gains. Students have visited Toronto, Sheas Performing Arts Center, and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in the past, and this past Wednesday April 27th students traveled to Kleinhans Music Hall to see the Philharmonic Orchestra perform. The theme of the program was Science and Music, and the school is excited for students to experience such great musicians in a world-class music hall. The fund however is not only used for trips, numerous artists and musicians have visited the school to instruct students and give techniques on many art and musical subjects. These programs are also not decided on completely by one person. Tony teams up with staff from the school to plan the events at an annual meeting. This is where all the magic happens to provide the students with such enriching opportunities. The school is already planning their

next adventure to attend the renovated Burchfield Penney Art Center near Buffalo State College. Mr. Cassetta believes that many students in the school need to experience these programs and trips rather than favoring a few students; approximately 275 kids attended the event at Kleinhans Music Hall. Many people asking for sponsorships to go places and attend programs have approached Tony, but he has turned them all down. His vision is to expose as many students as possible to these great opportunities and he states, “I believe it is important that rural children gain urban experiences that city children have on a daily basis.” The Cassetta Endowment Fund was designed to reach out to bigger populations with enriching programs from which they can learn. Without the assistance from Mr. Cassetta and the Ellicottville community, these opportunities would not have been possible. Even after all these events students and staff have attended, plus the visitors to the school who have been brought in to teach the children though this fund, it is still brimming at $35,000 for future programs and will continue to gain funds. Any questions can be directed to the Ellicottville Central School Principal, Mr. Robert Miller.

Inside Business Track Kless Boys Auto Success on Wheels BY DEAN WHITCOMB VILLAGER STAFF There aren’t many businesses in the Southern Tier like Kless Boys in Delevan, NY. The full-service auto repair, body shop and used car lot is quite impressive even just by appearance. If you’ve ever driven by it you can’t miss it, especially in Delevan. It stands out like a shining star, but its inner clockworks aren’t something to miss either. Kless Boys originally started in a small shop of about 1500 square feet. Now, they operate with a workspace of about 17,000 square feet. The business, owned by three brothers, Mark, Mat and Andy Kless, has grown by leaps and bounds since its inception in 1995. The three boys opened the shop shortly after graduating from Alfred State University (yes...all three of them!), but they had always been into cars together. “We’re just the three kids who were always playing with cars and never grew out of it,” states Mark Kless, “Dad had a body shop in high school and after that we got a dealer’s license in college to pay our way through school. We just love automobiles.” Kless Boys now offers it all. The auto repair portion of the business offers anything from “A to Z” from parts, to fluids to anything a car could need. The body shop portion of the business mainly performs collision and insurance work. However, Kless Boys is an Independent collision shop, which means that they aren’t restricted to a certain price range, brand name or level

Kless Boys originally started in a small shop of about 1500 square feet. Now, they operate with a workspace of about 17,000 square feet.

We just love automobiles.”

of performance by insurance companies. Mark Kless attests to this fact being one of the many reasons the business offers “better work than other businesses like this. Our work is nearly all referral and reputation based. We’ve built a great reputation.” Kless stands by the belief that customer referrals are one of the most important part of any business with heavy feet. He believes that bringing people in from all over the area based on the reputation their services have given them has allowed them to taste the success they’ve seen. Kless Boys is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 until 5:00 and on Saturdays by appointment. Located at 10921 Route 16 in Delevan, the

business is truly a finely tuned machine, inside and out. They perform repair work and beyond for a broad market covering a large portion of Cattaraugus County and the Pioneer School District, which is where the three boys were raised. “We’re just a strange dynamic,” says Mark Kless, “ the 3 of us just thrive together. We eat lunch together daily and never fight. We wouldn’t have it any other way. We’re proud of what we do and to be a part of our home community,” Kless continued, “When you’re trying to provide a great business to an area like ours you have to ensure you’re always giving the community a reason to be proud of you. That’s what we try to do every day.”

Wind CONT. FROM COVER

nor disapproves the wind farm project, according to Allegany Town Planning Board Chairman Bob Philips. The next step is a joint public hearing before the Town Planning Board and the Allegany Town Board. It will be held May 16th, at 7:30pm at the Allegany Senior Center on Birch Run Road. Philips clarified the action taken during the planning board’s April 27th meeting by stating, “ The issuance of the FEIS means that this board has adequate information to facilitate the weighing of social, economic, and environmental factors relevant to the Allegany Wind Project under SEQR. It does not imply approval or disapproval of the project. At the public hearing on May 16th, this board will deliver a detailed

Trails CONT. FROM COVER So, some riders headed south to set their wheels spinning, but they shouldn’t have to wait much longer. The calendar says May is almost here, and with any luck, the mountain bikers will soon be taking to the hills around Ellicottville for yet another good riding season. Jon Sundquist heads up the Western New York Mountain Bicycling Association (WNYMBA). He’s been part of the bicycling scene for a good many years, and is anxious to once again ride the local trails. This year, he’s promoting a visit by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) trail crew from May 6-8. Sundquist provides some background. “Our club has been a member (of the international group) since we founded ourselves in 1992. The trail crew started up in 1997. They teach people how to build trails correctly.” Sundquist notes that the reason they now have so many nice trails dates back to that time, after convincing the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) of their intention of “being serious to do things right.” Fifteen years ago, “There were no trails there

statement of findings, and a decision on the project (will be made) on or after June 13th.” Philips went on to explain that the statement of findings and decision is probably going to be between forty and eighty pages long. “And because of that, it may not be ready by the 13th.” By issuing the FEIS, “We’ve gathered information we now can use to help us make a determination. We did not make a decision.” A link to see the FEIS will be posted on the Town of Allegany web site. During the joint public hearing on May 16th, the Allegany Town Planning Board will deal with a special use permit and a site plan for the Wind Farm Project being proposed by Everpower LLC. The Allegany Town Board will cover its portion of the project, which involves a wind overlay corridor. Philips says if the Town Planning Board denies the project, it does not go to the

(the McCarty Hill/Rock City State Forest near Route 219). In the past fifteen years, we’ve put those (trails) together and we’ve been real successful.” Since the late 1990’s, the trail crew has paid several visits to Ellicottville. This year, they’ll be working on the new Mesa Trail. The Mesa Trail is actually a loop that comes off the Eagle Trail, which was built a few years ago. First, there will be a classroom presentation to go over the principles behind lying out, designing, and building trails. “Then we’ll go out (and get busy) after lunch.” That’s on Saturday, May 7th. You should mark that date down, because all are welcome to come out and lend a hand. Sundquist says, “They can be cyclists, they can be hikers. Last time we had them (trail crew) here in 2004 we had a lot of equestrians. Anybody is welcome to attend the event, and it’s free.” The classroom session will be held at the Holiday Valley Training Center. Times will be posted on the WNYMBA web site, www. wnymba.org. So what’s the correct way to build a trail? It’s neither quick nor simple. Sundquist explains, “Anybody can go out and rake away leaves and cut some branches. If you build trails right, they’ll last indefinitely. You want to build them on the

side of a hill if at all possible and have water flow over the trail, rather than flow down on the trail or accumulate on the trail. What you want to do is cut the trail into the side of the hill, what they call a bench cut. So you’re almost cutting a flat surface into the side of a hill.” He cited a trail in Georgia where pouring rain hit one day, but by that afternoon it was fine, because it was built correctly. “A lot of our trails are built that way, which is why (the local system) is a success.” To make a good trail, Sundquist says you must have a good combination of engineering and art, where scenic vistas are incorporated into the design.

Opinion:

Truth Or Consequences Marshmallow Head

BY DOUG ARROWSMITH Not long ago, after the supposedly triumphant victory of the Republican/Tea Party coalition in the mid-term elections, I said that it was a blessing in disguise for the Democratic Party and, more specifically, for President Obama. My reasoning was that mainstream or more centrist members of the GOP were now beholden to the wacky ideas of the Tea Party. Well, here we are. Less than a year later, and The Donald is now considered to be the front-runner in next year’s Presidential election. Crazy? Sure. But take a look at the rest of the field and “crazy” doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface. To get an idea of how far down the rabbit hole the GOP has allowed itself to be led one need look no further than Trumps main campaign point. There isn‘t one. That’s it. Trumps entire, perhaps imaginary, run for the White House seems to hinge on the idea that Barack Obama is not a natural born citizen of the United States of

America. He claims to have gone so far as to hire a team of private investigators to look into the Presidents birth. He hasn’t actually done that of course because he’s also a habitual liar but that’s beside the point. What amuses me though is the fact that this is playing out like a dream for the Democrats. Trump simply cannot be told to shut the hell up about this nonsense and every juicy tidbit that comes out of his mouth is like manna from heaven to those of us on the left. Some folks question why the media even bothers paying attention to this crazy, marshmallow head. I say bring it on. Give us more. If this is what next year’s election is going to look like this should be a cakewalk. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised to find out that Trump was a plant sent in to make the GOP look like fools. Now there’s a conspiracy for ya’ll. Now, lets be perfectly clear on one thing. Barack Obama was born in 1961 in the state of Hawaii. Every rational human knows this. The topic isn’t even up for debate. All the evidence is clear. All the records are available. The Birthers, however, aren’t having it. You could build a time machine and take a birther back to 1961 and put them in the actual hospital room where Obama was being born and they’d still tell you to your face that it was a lie. Which brings me to the Naturalization Act of 1790. Written just three years after the adoption of the Constitution, the Naturalization Act was designed to clear up any

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Villager

confusion as to what constitutes a “natural born citizen.” It states “the children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond the sea, or out of the limits of the United States shall be considered natural born citizens.” There ya have it. Even if the birther fantasy of a Kenyon born Barack Obama had any basis in fact he’d still be a natural born citizen because his mother was. End of story, right? Wrong. The Birthers have declared the 1790 act to be unconstitutional. Which, of course, means that the millions of children born while they’re parents were traveling, studying, living, serving or even trapped abroad aren’t citizens in the eyes of the Birthers. Sorry John McCain. That means you to. That’s right, John McCain couldn’t have been President because he was born in Panama on an American Military base and the constitution never mentions military bases. I guess, for the Birthers at least, the last presidential election was a contest between two foreigners. Weird. Just like Trump’s hair. Anyway. As I mentioned earlier, the Republican victory in last year’s midterm elections was clearly a victory in disguise for the Democrats. As long as candidates like Trump are out there and considered to be legitimate front-runners the Democrats should be fine. All they have to do is stick to the actual issues and people like Trump, the man who would sell the world, will continue to blather on in deference to his Tea Party overlords. Hilarious.

Architectural Digest Stylish, Smart and Slope Side STORY AND PHOTOS BY JOHN THOMAS STAFF WRITER There are ski condos and there are ski condos. But, what makes one unit stand out above the rest is often the matter of a few details. In the case of 7 Plum Ridge a lot of details add up to a pretty special unit. Start off with the fact that Plum Ridge is located practically inside the HoliMont ski area. Add to this, the condo is an end unit, meaning less noise from neighbors and you have the makings of a pretty special place. It’s on the inside where this condo really stands out. Coming through the front door, the custom interior jumps out at you from the start. Right at the front door is a handsome wood paneled entryway. The dark stain and the details on the wood work suggest an English country cottage. Hooks, cubbies and racks for holding skis and winter gear are right by the door, all sporting the same dark stain. This aristocratic touch extends into the rest of the condo. The dark stain is picked up by the hardwood floors that extend throughout the main level. Dominating the living room is a huge wood burning fireplace. Its stone facing and hearth create a rustic and traditional look. Cut into the stone facing above the firebox is an alcove for the wide screen TV. You can enjoy a roaring fire and catch up on 30 Rock. Skylights cut into the cathedral ceiling let in the afternoon light and add to the spaciousness of the room. A glass door leads out to a deck nestled in the tree tops. The wood trim around the windows, the dark stained hardwood floors, and the leather sofas give the room a noble flair you just don’t find in the average ski condo. Radiant floor heating works with the fireplace to keep the place cozy in winter. Standing in the living room, I realize something: this highly successful remodel has

created an almost Tudor style, understated, rustic, elegance; a far cry from a crash pad for rowdy skiers. Over in the dining area, a crystal chandelier hangs over a beautiful wood dining table. Against the wall is a built in dry bar. Its granite counter top blends with the dark woods of the cabinets. Below the counter is a mirror lined wine rack. The mirrors create the illusion that the rack extends down into the floor below; very cool. Also in the bar is a built in wine chiller; very smart. The granite counters and dark cabinets are repeated in the stylish U-shaped kitchen. Some of the cabinets have a glass front, breaking up the facade and preventing the kitchen from looking like a dead end. A double window over the sink allows more light to filter in. The glass top range, chrome sink and appliances create a sophisticated counterpoint to the handsome cabinets. Just off the dining area is a modern surprise: a circular staircase. It leads up to the top floor sleeping loft. It houses a couple of twin beds, and a full bath. The pitch of the roof here makes it most desirable as a kid’s bedroom. A standard staircase leads from the main floor down to the bottom level. Here are

two bedrooms, as well as the mechanical room. The master suite is the larger of the two bedrooms, and has a large tiled bathroom with a shower stall. At the end of the hall is a third bathroom (also tiled) that serves the other bedroom on this floor. Examining all the ski trip mementos in the hallway and the ski themed furniture in the bedrooms tells me that this is very much a ski oriented home. A lot of condos boast “ski-in ski-out convenience,� and so as I left the unit I decided to test the claim. A twenty second walk across the parking lot took me to the edge of one of the runs at HoliMont. A short easy run -goes right down to one of the lifts. Looking up the hill I can see an easy run comes down to where I am standing: about as convenient as it gets. But the slopes aren’t the only thing the home is convenient too; it’s just a short drive to Ellicottville’s downtown restaurants and shops. Anywhere you find ski areas, you’ll find ski condos, but seldom will you find a condo that can add so much quiet elegance and style to a ski get-away; special indeed. For more information on this condo contact Tina Dillon at ERA Team VP Real Estate (716) 474-5646.

Update CONT. FROM COVER order and the minutes from the previous meeting were brought to the table, reviewed and accepted. The Project Review Report was brought to discussion. Board members and representatives alike reviewed the four projects at hand. One such project was A Rural Business Enterprise Grant for the Town of Ripley, which was to cover improvements in the Town of Ripley Route 5 West Water & Wastewater System. The renovation of a community facility at Chautauqua Resources, Inc. into the administration building for The Resource Center was discussed as well as The Great Lakes Restoration Program. This program was sponsored by the NYS DEC and aims at a Niagara River Area of Concern (AOC) Water Quality Assessment. Another project sponsored by the NYS DEC was also reviewed and is entitled Xenobiotics in Fish from NY’s Great Lakes

Town CONT. FROM COVER Hardwood to create a satellite office on US Route 219 near Cotter Road. A salesperson working for M. P. Caroll Hardwood would work from the office, which will be located within a currently existing barn, and use it to store flooring samples. The company would not conduct retail sales from the office, and the salesperson would only use the space a few times a week. M. P. Caroll Hardwood is located in Cheektowaga and manufactures high quality hardwood flooring. According to a State Environmental Quality Review, no significant effect would result from the construction of the office or the installation of the sign. The board members noted the sign was within accepted town parameters, and approved the application on the conditions that the company would remove the sign if the office ever closed, and that the company notifies the board if they ever changed the office’s functions. Dorothy and Ross Taylor of Horn Hill Road approached the board to voice their concern over potential oil well hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in the community. Dorothy Taylor said if fracking were to take place in Ellicottville the potential risks to drinking water, and the water used to make snow at Holiday Valley Resort and HoliMont Resort, could potential destroy the community. Ross Taylor said that any negative environmental effects would also cause property values to drop and prevent landowners from selling their property. He said he would like the board to ban the practice within the town. Board members said that there is some question as to whether or not it is legal for communities in New York to draft laws banning the use of hydraulic fracturing. They added that they could not control drilling through the

than one plaque.” Miner said the menu features more than 20 items prepared by Chanderson’s in Yorkshire, Colden Country Inn in Colden, Desperado’s in Angola, Riley’s of Ellicottville, The Shop in Delevan and Theo’s Family Restaurant in Arcade. All of the items are less than five dollars. Some of the dishes include sausage potato soup, mini Reuben sandwiches, Asian chicken lettuce wraps, turtle cheesecake, Maine lobster cakes, ribs, Baklava and pulled pork sandwiches. The event, which is free with the purchase of meal or raffle tickets, will feature performances by Joe Wagner and John Winston and The Rustic Ramblers. Wagner and Winston will perform from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. The Rustic Ramblers will perform 1-5 p.m. “We will have music playing constantly,” Miner said. Fifty raffle and silent auction items have been prepared for the

Waters. The project is in “Fund Phase 2 to monitor concentrations of polychlorinated biphenyls, organochlorine pesticides and mercury in edible fish from NY’s Great Lakes System.” The four projects were assessed by the board and accepted. The Executive Director’s report for the month was highlighted by the discussion of the regional broadband initiative being taken by the board. Southern Tier West has received confirmation of resolutions being passed by three towns in Cattaraugus County agreeing to provide a $5,000 match toward the broadband project. The director is scheduled to meet with five other towns in May in hopes of receiving confirmation from each as well. In total, nine towns in Chautauqua County and five towns and Cattaraugus Count would benefit from this project. New items of business for the month began with a report on the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC). The discussion reviewed an initiative taken by the organization to offer Federal Technical Assistance

Workshops. The workshops offer education on the ARC itself and allow participants to hear from “at least 6 different Federal agencies about current grant programming available to local governments, economic development organization, community colleges, non-profits,” and several other areas as well. The nearest workshop will be held May 18th at the Radisson Hotel in Corning, NY. Registration is held online at www.arc.gov/events and onsite at 8:30 am the day of the workshop. The US Census Bureau released the 2010 Redistricting data on March 24th, 2011. The data “provides Total Population, Age (18+), Race, Ethnicity, Total Housing Units and Occupance vs. Vacancy for every geographic area within the state of New York.” The presentation of the data was concluded with a short graphic demonstration of how the harvested data can be utilized by a planning and development board. The meeting was called to adjournment after no public comments were raised for discussion. The next meeting is set for May 19th.

issuing of permits either. They added that placing a law on the books that was unenforceable would achieve nothing, and could potentially cost the town a large amount of money in legal fees. The board members noted that the water used in this process must pass through a water treatment facility after it has been used, and, since the water treatment facilities of the town and village would not be able to handle the materials, it could be possible to prevent the practice this way. The board members agreed that the practice is a concern, but they added that they needed to review legitimate scientific evidence from both sides before they could make any decision. Members noted that too much of the current debate is focused on hearsay and hysteria, and that many people seem to want to limit conventional drilling as well as fracking. The board members said the matter is not really within their power to control, and that the Town Board plans to discuss the issue at their next meeting. They said any real action in response to this practice would have to be enacted by the Town Board to have a real effect. The board briefly discussed a proposed ATV park and camping ground on Horn Hill Road. The members noted that the Town of Ellicottville prohibits the creation of ATV parks within the township, but said a camping ground could be created with approval of a special use permit. The board members noted, however, that they have not received a formal proposal on the project, and that the individual interested in creating the project does not currently own the land. Dorothy Taylor also approached the board to voice concern over the proposal on behalf of her neighbors on Horn Hill Road. She said many of her neighbors were worried over how the campsite would obtain water, and how it would dispose of waste. She added that Horn Hill Road is not designed to handle large amounts of traffic, and that children living along the road

may be at risk from the increased traffic. The board members acknowledged her concerns, though they said that the review process for environmental impact would also look into many of these concerns. They added that part of their duty is protecting individual property rights and encouraging proper development of the area, and that they would not prevent a proposal that is in line with town zoning codes and receives SEQR approval. The board members continued reviewing their draft of regulations concerning subdivisions as part of a Town Board request. The members reviewed the process for obtaining a final plat approval during the meeting, focusing on creating a process that allows projects to move from preliminary, middle and final plat approval quickly, without making it difficult for the applicant to achieve the goals of each step. The members noted that the goal is not to prevent expansion and growth within the town, but only to regulate the process and to prevent potential liabilities the town may face from unfinished projects. The members suggested various improvements to the wording of the documents, which included requiring plans for drainage to tie into future projects, and a map detailing the location of the project to be included with their initial application. The board members also voiced their concern over the process of getting non-municipal public utilities, such as gas and electricity, connected to the sites prior to final plat approval. The members noted that most utility companies would not connect their services to a sight until final plat has been approved, but this prevents the town from regulating how the services can be run within the subdivision. The board agreed to contact representatives from some local utilities to get their input on the issue. The board tabled the review until their next meeting.

event, too. “There’s something for every one,” Miner said. Items include a basket of barbecue items from Alexander’s, themed baskets, filled beach totes, garden tools and hanging plants among many other things. Miner said the drawing will be at 4 p.m. and there’s no need to be present to win. “You write your name and phone number on the ticket and we can call you when your win,” Miner said. Tickets, which are $10 for 25 and $20 for 75, may be purchased at the events. Door prizes including buffets to Ponderosa and Pizza Hut will be awarded throughout the event. The Gooseneck Hill Waterfowl Sanctuary is currently home to 500 birds including three endangered species from all over the world. The sanctuary is home to 11 of the world’s 600 NeNe Geese. The NeNe Goose is native to Hawaii. The sanctuary is also home to 100 Red breasted geese and 30 Lesser whitefronted geese. The 47 other bird species that live at the sanctuary are protected. “Very few bird sanctuaries remain open in the United States

we’re the only one in this part of the country,” Miner said. “We invite people to come for a guided tour. The birds will come right up to you and eat out of your hand. They’re very friendly.” The sanctuary is open 2-5 p.m. for guided tours each Sunday in July and August. Groups of 20 people or more are invited to make reservations to come for tours throughout the year. Since Gooseneck Hill Waterfowl Sanctuary is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization, all donations to it are tax deductible. Donations may be sent to the sanctuary at 5067 Townline Road, Delevan, N.Y. 14042. All donations help the birds and are put toward their food and improvements to the sanctuary. For more information about the sanctuary and Taste of the Southtowns call (716) 942-6835 or email rosebird@frontiernet. net. Be sure to visit the website: gooseneckhillwaterfowlfarm. com, too. “If we weren’t doing this to help preserve the species there would be hardly any birds left for future generations,” said Miner.
