Town Planning Board Hears Plans for Clubhouse Chalet

Thursday, July 28th, 8pm WEEKLY NOTICE BAND

By John Thomas Staff Writer

Friday, July 29th, 9pm SEAN PATRICK MCGRAW

At the Town Planning Board Monday night Holiday Valley revealed plans to demolish the Clubhouse Chalet and replace it with a building currently dubbed “The Lodge.” Bonnie Koschir VP of Operations at Holiday Valley presented drawings detailing the new construction. Current plans call for the remodeling of the children’s center to start sometime in the fall. A temporary day care facility will be built across the street on the pad of an old Skiers Inn. It will consist of two portable double-wide classroom type trailers. There are hook ups by the pad for water, electric and sewer. The planning board looked over the plans and asked about signage, and lighting. Though no signage was shown on the plans, Ms. Koschir indicated they may establish signage. Demolition of the chalet may begin in March of 2012. Although the ski season will still be going, Ms. Koschir stated that after Mardi Gras most of the skiers tend to move

up the hill towards the Yodeler and Tannenbaum lodges. Construction of the new lodge should be complete by December 15. Parking lots will be built sometime after 2013 as well as the re-alignment of Holiday Valley Road. Reached after the meeting Ms. Koschir spoke to the need for a new lodge. “We’ve replaced Tannenbaum and Yodeler lodges. The main clubhouse is now dated and is the oldest physical plant.” She went on to say that the new lodge will have the same functionality as the chalet, but will be slightly larger and updated. The Children’s Center will be moved into the new lodge, and in its location will be seasonal (rental) lockers, showers and changing rooms for the pools. Its roof will be turned into the Overlook Terrace for people to sit in the sun and observe people at the pool or skiers on the mountain. Public hearings will be necessary to move the project forward. The board moved to schedule a public hearing for the new day care center on See CHALET page 11

CCIDA Meeting

Monthly Meeting Hears EBC Plans, Bonaventure Square By Eric Hund University of Pitt. at Bradford The County of Cattaraugus Industrial Development Agency held its monthly meeting Tuesday, July 26. The CCIDA members reviewed the planned upgrades to the Ellicottville Brewing Company at the meeting. The proposed project would expand the existing building, in operation since 1995, to meet the demands of guests during the peak season, to begin bottling brands produced in Ellicottville, and to offer more events and opportunities to draw in tourists. The upgraded building would be a two-story, 12,000 to 16,000 square foot addition allowing for increased seating, beer production and shopping, as well as a beer garden in back. The estimated cost for the project cost is more than $2.2 million, and is projected to create 20 new jobs. The company seeks New York State sales tax abatement and New York State mortgage recording tax abatement. The CCIDA approved the State Environmental Quality Review of the project.

The CCIDA approved the authorizing of paperwork for sales tax and mortgage tax abatements. Corey Wiktor, executive director of the CCIDA, presented an analysis of the Ellicottville Brewery upgrade to the board that he created using a software program called Inplan. He said that the software, which costs about $10,000, allows planners to predict the total number of jobs and tax revenues produced by a project, including the support jobs, such as retail salespeople, manufacturing, medical and more, as well as all incidental sales taxes generated in the projects construction. He said he would like to work out a deal with the Erie County IDA to contract out the use the software, which is already owned by the Erie IDA, when the CCIDA has large projects presented to them. David Trathen, Holiday Valley Resort’s vice president of finance, presented the board with a planned upgrade to the resorts electrical supply system. See CCIDA page 11

Information Session on Tent Laws

Sneak Peek

Village Holds Seminar for Town and Village on NYS Tent Laws

Architectural Digest of Ellicottville: Privacy by the Pond... page 8

By John Thomas Driving north on Route 240 you couldn’t ask for a more bucolic scene; first the road follows the lazy path of a creek, then unwinds through a green canopy of trees. The forest drops away to reveal a view of green fields framed by grain silos. Traveling on, you go past pastures, fly by fields of corn, and whoosh by wetlands. Off in the distance the forest covered hillsides create a carpet of green.

By Bob Kaine Village Trustee Some years ago, Mayor Coolidge and the Board of Trustees recognized that they had a responsibility to ensure that they reviewed special events in the Village to reduce the probability of personal injuries and ensure a proper family environment for our residents and visitors. Patra Lowes volunteered to become the chairperson to organize a Special Events Committee to accept and review applications and proper planning. Three Village Board Trustees; the Chamber of Commerce; the Rotary Club; Village and Town Police Departments; the Fire Department and a few interested citizens represent the Committee. All are volunteers who do this on their own time. When a person or group wants to hold a special event in the Village, they are required to have a permit and request a Special Event Application from the Village Clerk. Last year we became aware of New York State’s codes for the safe installations

On Wednesday, July 27, a seminar was lead by Tom Abritis (Zoning Officer), Ed Fredrickson (Fire Chief) and Tom Markel (of Bravo Events) for members of the Chamber of Commerce on tent safety and installation. The seminar started by reviewing some international examples of things that did go wrong and how they could have been prevented, and then there was a general discussion on New York State’s codes.

and maintenance of tents. Our our local Zoning officer for the Fire application asks if there is a tent Chief and Zoning Officer’s review. or canopy that is expected. If there is, a Tent/Canopy Application and See TENTS page 11 Permit Form must be requested from

SALAMANCA, NY – Seneca Allegany Casino will host this year’s annual Veterans Pow Wow on Saturday, July 30, and Sunday, July 31, 2011. The event, which begins each day at 10 a.m., celebrates the culture and heritage of the Seneca Nation and features dance and drum competitions, arts and crafts, and food. 

 The event, which had previously been held at Veterans’ Park in Salamanca, comes to the grounds outside Seneca Allegany Casino for the first time.  Master of ceremonies will be John Block and Bill Crouse Sr. 

One highlight from Saturday’s activities is an honoring of the original Pow Wow committee members at

5 p.m. Reggie Crouse will facilitate the presentation. 

 “We originally started the Pow Wow mainly to give the kids a chance to learn how to dance Iroquois and Western style, but also wanted to help them have even more pride being Native American and gain respect for other dancers and tribes – no matter where they come from,” Crouse said. “The Pow Wow brings families and communities together, and many travel from thousands of miles away to attend and dance.” 

 A highlight from Sunday’s activities is the finals of the dance competitions at 1:30 p.m.   Hundreds of participants from throughout the country will

vie for $52,000 in prize money during dance, smoke dance, and drum competitions. This year’s head judges include: Joe “Ponchie” Plain (Male Dance), Rowena Roberts (Female Dance), Joshua Johnny-John (Male Smoke Dance), Bev Porter (Female Smoke Dance), and Kenny Merrick Jr. (Drums). The Seneca Allegany Casino Veterans Pow Wow is an alcohol-free event and is open to all ages. Admission prices are $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 5 to 17 and for elders 60 years and older, and free for children ages 4 and younger.   Veterans and active service members with identification will receive free admission.

Reed Speaks on Debt Ceiling Congressman Releases Statement on National Debt Negotiations

“On June 6, 76 Members of the House asked the President to present details of his proposal to prevent a default. Seven weeks later, we had received no response. That’s why this past Tuesday I led 21 of my colleagues to the White House with another letter signed by 65 Members of the House again asking for details of the President’s solution to our debt crisis. Again, no response. In the House, we  have passed a detailed budget

and, importantly,  a bill that would prevent a national default and force us to live within our means. The House has repeatedly presented fiscally responsible solutions while the White House has repeatedly held press conferences. You cannot vote on speeches and rhetoric. Given that we have seen no leadership from the White House on averting this crisis, I hope that the leadership of the House and the Senate can now work out a long-term solution that is best for

our country.       I have come back home this evening and look forward to spending the weekend discussing this issue with constituents at our Saturday town hall meetings: 8:00AM at Cohocton Town Court in Atlanta, 12:30PM at Caneadea Town Hall in Caneadea and 3:30PM at Persia Town Hall in Gowanda. People can also leave feedback through our website, gov or on our Facebook page,”

There are construction photos on our Facebook page showing how much work they have done.” said Mrs. Meyers “ The village of Allegany has been very welcoming to us moving in on Main Street. We also have had some lovely compliments as the building has progressed.” The building will have much more space for the gallery area where local artists can display and sell their work. It’s big enough to accommodate large sculptural pieces should the opportunity arise. There will be a grand opening announced when the building is complete and all aspects of the business are up and running. Anyone interested in the summer kids classes can call 716-373-0326 to register or inquire about them.

Allegany, NY – The building at 51 W. Main Street, originally built in 1900 is being revamped to bring back that old time look and give a fresh facelift to Main Street in Allegany. The building will house The Ink Well, the area’s only art store exclusively dedicated to all aspects of art, which is moving in the first part of July to the new address. “I needed to move from my current location on N. Union Street in Olean, due to a lack of space. When I added framing to the business, I just ran out of room. I have been looking for a long time all over Olean and Allegany, when this opportunity came up. It’s really an ideal building for our classrooms and creating art, as it faces north. We added extra windows, and 2 skylights, to capture all that

“Some of the key events are going to be the speeches and presentations, along with the opportunity to discuss as a group the problems that presidents encounter, or the challengers of presidential leadership,” said Godfrey. There will also be time for reflection and interaction, including a trip to Mt. Irenaeus, the Franciscan Mountain Retreat in Allegany County. “We wanted to build in these opportunities in which people can reflect, talk and cultivate relationships for the future. The input from the scheduled sessions is really important, but the community building among future leaders with current leaders is just as important,” said Godfrey. The academy begins at 1 p.m. Wednesday, July 27, and ends after lunch on Saturday, July 30. Along with St. Bonaventure, AFCU member schools include Alvernia University, Briar Cliff University, Cardinal Stritch University, Felician College, Franciscan School of Theology, Franciscan University, Hilbert College, Lourdes College, Madonna University, Marian University, Neumann University, Our Lady of the Lake College, Quincy University, Siena College, Silver Lake College, St. Francis College, Saint Francis University, University of St. Francis, University of Saint Francis, Villa Maria College, and Viterbo University.

for finding people who will be able to lead these institutions in the future. We want to see Franciscan values continue to be taught to college-level and graduate students, so the AFCU is assuming this responsibility by helping to identify and work with future leaders.” Those attending the Leadership Academy are already in administrative positions at Catholic colleges and universities and are “capable of and interested in” pursuing executive roles, said Godfrey. Academy speakers include Dr. Pauline J. Albert, assistant professor in the School of Management and Business at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas; Dr. Kristine Kiefer Hipp, professor in the Doctoral Leadership Department at Cardinal Stritch University, Milwaukee, Wis.; Dr. Peter J. Holbrook, interim dean of the College of Business and Management, and executive director of the Leadership Center at Cardinal Stritch University; and Sr. Patricia Hutchison, O.S.F., director of the Neumann Institute for Franciscan Studies and an adjunct assistant professor in the Division of Education at Neumann University, Aston, Pa. Co-facilitators for the academy are Sr. Margaret Carney, O.S.F., president of St. Bonaventure University and present chair of the AFCU Board of Directors; and Dr. Richard Artman, president of Viterbo University in La Crosse, Wisc.

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y., July 25, 2011 — Future college and university presidents may be walking about St. Bonaventure University this week as the campus hosts the Association of Franciscan Colleges and Universities’ firstever Franciscan Leadership Academy. Attending the four-day event, July 27-30, will be 17 present administrators at AFCUmember institutions who were selected because of their executive leadership potential. Eight AFCU college and university presidents will also attend as academy presenters, facilitators or participants. St. Bonaventure is one of 21 Franciscan colleges and universities in the United States that belong to the association, which was established in 1997 as a means of supporting member schools in their mission of providing Catholic higher education in the Franciscan tradition. The Leadership Academy is a new initiative; one rooted in present-day realities, said AFCU Executive Director Dr. Kevin Godfrey, an associate professor of theology at Alvernia University in Reading, Pa. “As is the case at all Catholic colleges and universities sponsored by religious communities, the number of sisters and brothers and priests that used to exist to staff these places does not anymore,” said Godfrey. “So we’re responsible

2011 will mark the seventeenth year for the “Give the Dog a Bone Tour” on July 30th and 31st, to benefit the SPCA in Cattaraugus County. As in previous years, visitors can expect food, fun, live music, and helpful tips for pet owners. But this time, you can add overnight camping and an extra day into the mixture. This year’s event also has a new location, moving from Gargoyle Park near Olean to Sprint Speedway on Route 16, not far from the animal shelter. SPCA President Kelly Chaffee says some campers have already registered. “You can get in for a one-time price. If you want to camp two nights or (just) one night, it’s all the same price. Thirty dollars gets people into the event for both days.” Chaffee says arrangements are proceeding smoothly. “We’ve got fifteen bands lined up, and we’re excited about that.” She notes that in the past they could only accommodate from eight to ten bands. There was no room for other bands that wanted to play. “But we’ve pretty much accommodated everybody this

year, I think.” She said some top-notch bands are coming. The dates have been shifted from the traditional Independence Day weekend to late July. “We’ve been successful on the Fourth of July weekend for a number of years. But the last couple of years, (attendance) has sort of dropped off a little bit. Some people who have been coming to the ‘Give the Dog a Bone Tour’ for years said it was a bad weekend for them. But you can’t please everybody (with the dates). This way, (having it) on July 30th and 31st gives us a little more time to prepare for it. And you’re not so much in competition with (other events).” What else can people find? Chaffee says, “We have a lot of vendors again this year. We have the bands of course. We have lots of food, we have beverages.” And Sunday promises to be a bit different this year. “That’s what we’re calling a Family Fun Day. It’s where a family can come in for a cheaper price. We recognize it can be a financial hardship for a family with five or six kids to pay full price for each child.” A family of six will be able to get in for a one-time entrance fee of

$25. Money raised from the tour goes directly to the SPCA in Cattaraugus County. “We have about four hundred animals in the building on any given day. Our phones ring off the hook. I can’t begin to tell you how many calls we get for stray and injured animals. The demand for these services is just off the wall.” Local veterinarians who assist the SPCA are “paid in full” from proceeds from the “Give the Dog a Bone Tour.” Chaffee says, “We try to get those animals treated that need it.” Chaffee says the SPCA is besieged by calls from people who want to turn in their own cats or stray cats. Many of these people are from outside the immediate area. “That’s because they don’t want to take them (the cats) to a kill shelter.” (Cattaraugus is a no-kill shelter). She notes that all shelters are overloaded with animals “all the time.” One of Chaffee’s focuses is to get money for spaying and neutering. “That seems to be one of the better plans right now. “ She says that sponsors have been helpful in this regard. “Spaying and neutering, I find, is the best solution.”

George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic to Rock this Thursday Buffalo, New York – The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame says the following of George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic: “If James Brown is funk’s founding father, Clinton has been its chief architect and tactician.” This forefather of funk and his entourage also go by “dealers of funky music, P-Funk, uncut funk and The Bomb” and will be performing at Thursday at the Square this Thursday, July 28th. The group’s biggest hits released in 1978 and 1979 and included “Flash Light,” “One Nation Under a Groove,” “Aqua Boogie” and “Knee Deep,” all of which reached number one on the R&B charts. Clinton was born in Kannapolis, North Carolina in 1940 and developed a passion for music, in particular for doo wop groups, in the 1950’s when living in New Jersey. Clinton will perform at Thursday at The Square this week, six days after his 71st birthday. Opening up the evening of performance at the Erie Canal Harbor Central Wharf will be Taylor Made and The Rod Nickson Project. Thursday at the Square is a ten-week, free-to-the-public celebration of music, summer fun and Downtown Buffalo, produced by Buffalo Place Inc. The event draws record crowds into Downtown Buffalo

SBU Releases Publication

Local Franciscans Release Olivi’s Commentary on Gospel of Mark ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y., July 25, 2011 — Franciscan Institute Publications is pleased to announce the publication of “Peter of John Olivi – Commentary on the Gospel of Mark” (ISBN 1576592340) by Robert J. Karris, O.F.M. Peter of John Olivi (12481298), a Provencal Franciscan, was educated in Paris and lectured for most of his academic life in Franciscan study houses, especially in the south of France. His commentary on Mark no doubt stems from these lectures. Karris includes in this volume his translations of Albert the Great’s commentary on passages that are unique to Mark allowing the reader to compare and contrast the expositions of the two contemporaries. Olivi begins his commentary on Mark by explaining the brevity of his treatment. His commentaries on Matthew and John lie behind him. In the light of that work, he proposes, we can read Mark easily. And

so he divides and summarizes Mark, pausing only at passages particular to Mark’s account. Robert Karris turns the resultant brevity of the commentary into a happy opportunity to look closely at Peter Olivi’s work on Scripture. With his introduction and notes to his translation of the commentary, Karris invites today’s reader to watch closely as Peter Olivi operates on Mark in a late 13th-century classroom. It is definitely a Franciscan classroom: “In many of Olivi’s comments about Christ’s disciples,” Karris observes, “he seems to have left behind the historical disciples of the 1st century and is talking to his present day disciples.” The result is a close and successful look at the exegetical work of an outstanding Scripture scholar of the Middle Ages. Robert J. Karris, O.F.M., is a Franciscan priest of the Sacred Heart Province. He earned an S.T.L. (Licentiate in Sacred Theology) from Catholic

University of America and a Th.D. (doctor of theology) from Harvard University in New Testament and Early Church History. Fr. Karris is a former professor of New Testament at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago and a former Provincial Minister of Sacred Heart Province and General Councilor of the Order of Friars Minor. He is a research professor at The Franciscan Institute of St. Bonaventure University. He has been widely published and is the General Editor of the Works of St. Bonaventure Texts in Translation Series. The most recent volume in this 15-volume series is Defense of the Mendicants with an Introduction and notes by Karris and a cotranslation by Karris and Jose de Vinck. He is a past president of the Catholic Biblical Association of America and for the last four years he has preached in more than 120 churches in the United States on behalf of the poor served by Food for the Poor.

Architectural Digest Privacy By the Pond

Story and Photos By John Thomas Staff Writer Driving north on Route 240 you couldn’t ask for a more bucolic scene; first the road follows the lazy path of a creek, then unwinds through a green canopy of trees. The forest drops away to reveal a view of green fields framed by grain silos. Traveling on, you go past pastures, fly by fields of corn, and whoosh by wetlands. Off in the distance the forest covered hillsides create a carpet of green. It’s as countrified as you can get while remaining only a few miles away from town. The home sits at the end of a shaded driveway. Built in 2005 and recently upgraded it has the feel of new construction. The first thing you will notice, standing in the gravel covered parking area, is the quiet. Just the wind rustling the trees and a few birds singing. Looking around you can’t see the road or any other houses through the forest. If you like privacy, this is the home for you. Far from a rustic cabin, this home is every part a modern contemporary house. It’s steeply pitched metal roof room means it will have

no problem shedding the winter snow load. Inside the contemporary wood flooring in the kitchen and living room set a modern and sophisticated tone. Walnut cabinets and granite patterned counter tops give the kitchen a rich look. The cathedral ceiling over the kitchen adds to the sense of spaciousness. White appliances enhance the clean modern look, and the widow over the double stainless steel sink looks out the the pond – more about that later. In a corner of the living room sits a wood stove, the one item in the house that looks like an antique. Next to it is a high definition television. The large window and the sliding glass door let in the afternoon sunlight and create a bright pleasant room. Just off the living room is the master bedroom. It’s quiet and cool and would make for easy sleeping. The bathroom off it is spacious, and features a nice tub/shower combination. The ground floor is rounded out with a large entrance hallway that has a closet for the laundry, and a large guest/storage closet. Upstairs is a large room that could be divided into two rooms that could be just about anything. At one end is a nice bathroom with a

shower stall and a big walk in closet. A second master suite would be an easy fit here. The rest of the space would make a fine third bedroom, sitting area or home office. Just off that is a private balcony that overlooks the pond. Back downstairs the sliding glass door in the living room opens out to a deck. Shaded by a canopy of trees its two levels are an inviting place to sit, relax, and enjoy the view of the pond. It’s adorned with lilly pads just beginning to blossom, and is about 75 feet long and about 10 feet deep. A couple of large fish swim in lazy circles, and a croaking frog can be heard. It’s about the only sound, except for the wind and the birds. Over at one side of the pond is a gentle slope that could provide a spot for launching a kayak or a raft. Standing at the far end of the pond, you notice woods in every direction. Over by the side of the house a hammock has been hung between two trees, the perfect spot for a long afternoon snooze. It’s hard to imagine a more harmonious setting for a home; surrounded by forest, a backyard pond, and only the sounds of nature. An island of peace and privacy to escape from this crowded noisy

Inside the contemporary wood flooring in the kitchen and living room set a modern and sophisticated tone. Walnut cabinets and granite patterned counter tops give the kitchen a rich look.

In a corner of the living room sits a wood stove, the one item in the house that looks like an antique. Next to it is a high definition television. The large window and the sliding glass door let in the afternoon sunlight and create a bright pleasant room. The sliding glass door in the living room opens out to a deck. Shaded by a canopy of trees its two levels are an inviting place to sit, relax, and enjoy the view of the pond. It’s adorned with lilly pads just beginning to blossom, and is about 75 feet long and about 10 feet deep. A couple of large fish swim in lazy circles, and a croaking frog can be heard. It’s about the only sound, except for the wind and the birds.

By Lilian Dirito , C.N.H.P. Wellness Consultant According to Sunshine Sharing Publication, aminoacids are basic components that can be assembled to form many different structures. Aminoacids are the building blocks of the body. The genes in DNA are blueprints that enable the body to splice aminoacids into long chains called peptides and polypeptides. These chains are then linked to form proteins, the basis of all body structures. Proteins regulate the body’s functions. Enzymes are proteins that either assemble compounds the body needs or take apart compounds the body no longer needs. Many hormones and all neurotransmitters are based on aminoacids, too. Aminoacids can even be burned for fuel when the body needs energy. There are twenty-two aminoacid building blocks. Ten of them are considered essential because the body can’t synthesize them. These essential amino acids are arginine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. The remaining amino acids can be synthesized from these ten. Herbalist Steve Horne explains

that aminoacid deficiencies can occur when people eat too many simple carbohydrates (sugar and white flours)and not enough protein. The quality of protein matters (I couldn’t agree more), since amino acids can be denatured through processing and overcooking. Amino acid deficiencies can also occur from digestive problems. To utilize protein, Horne says, the body has to deconstruct the proteins we eat and convert them back to amino acids. This process starts in the stomach, where hydrochloric acid and pepsin break proteins down into peptides and polypeptides. There are some herbs that are natural sources of readily available aminoacids. These include three of my favorite supplements Spirulina, Super Algae and Bee Pollen. Spirulina is a high source of pre-digested protein, very easy to assimilate and rich in aminoacids. It is a high-energy food and may act as an appetite suppressant, because it brings direct nutrition to the cells with high protein content, so the body feels nurtured and not hungry. Super Algae combines Spirulina with two other algae: Chlorella and Klamath Lake blue-green algae. Super Algae is great brain food. The aminoacids it contains can enhance memory, concentration and learning. It also helps to balance blood sugar levels and take away craving for sugar. Bee Pollen is also rich in amino acids and contains every other nutrient needed by the human body. It is a great super food for athletes, weak or debilitated people or those just wanting to increase their energy and improve their health naturally. Bee Pollen is also in the herbal combination Energy-V. The amino acid l-arginine has become very popular in

the last few years due to the discovery of arginine’s role in the production of nitric oxide, a neurotransmitter that dilates blood vessels, which may help in reducing blood pressure. It also helps in improving circulation to different organs in the body, including enhancing erectile function in men. It also boosts sperm motility, which in turn enhances fertility, this ingredient is in Men’s X-Action Reloaded; as well as it is a key ingredient in the circulatory boosting formula Solstic Cardio, a formula that is very helpful for before and after exercising. L-Lysine is an essential aminoacid that is deficient in grains; research suggests that lysine is involved in the immune system and its ability to fight viruses, particularly the herpes simplex virus. This makes it useful as a remedy for cold sores, canker sores, fever blisters and genital herpes. Cysteine is another sulphurrich amino acid. It plays a critical role in the production of glutathione, an important intracellular antioxidant that helps protect the body from toxins and heavy metals. L-Cystine is found in Megachel, which is used to chelate heavy metals and improve circulatory health. One form of this aminoacid is N-AcetylCysteine, a supplement used to help liver detoxification.

Welcome to the Third World

happening here is a battle about the debt ceiling and the Tea Party’s efforts to block anything and everything the President supports, asks, requests or even says. The fact that George W. Bush signed the energy act requiring more efficient bulbs into law in 2007 seems to have gone unnoticed because these folks keep referring to this as an Obama issue.  But who needs facts when you’re trying to prove that obsolete technology is some sort of inalienable right?      So there they were.  Debating By Doug Arrowsmith light bulbs while the nation limped towards default.  The Last year, after a small but desperation in John Boehner’s vocal Tea Party cabal helped the voice was palpable.  He’s the GOP take control of the House poor sucker who championed of Representatives, I warned these folks towards election.  that there would be unavoidable He’s the one who’s now stuck conflict between the baggers and with them as he attempts to the mainstream GOP members please everyone to no avail.  of Congress.  Well here we are.  He’s the one who wants to The seemingly routine path to crawl under a rock and wait to raising the country’s debt ceiling be kicked out of power by his has ground to a screeching halt own party.  He’s the one who is and debate between all sides stuck leading a party that wants has devolved into a childish the right to use outdated, energy and tantrum strewn national sucking light bulbs while living embarrassment.  Where are in asbestos houses and drinking the Tea Party representatives?  gallons of lead paint because, Smirking in the corner flipping darn it, it’s their right to do so!  everyone off and wasting our This is what debate in America time with a ridiculous light bulb has become, an ideological debate.  Where else would they quagmire driven by vendetta be? and hatred.  Oh yea.  Remember      Light bulbs, according to that debt ceiling clock?  Still those tea people, are a national ticking. threat to our freedom and must      We have less then a week to be stopped everything else be do something…less then a week damned.  More specifically, until we default for the first time compact fluorescent bulbs must in our nation’s history.  How be stopped.  It’s all a ruse of easy should this be?  Well those course but you’re not supposed who keep invoking Ronald to know that.  What’s really Reagan’s name like he was

some sort of right wing messiah keep forgetting that he raised the debt ceiling seventeen times during his presidency. George W. Bush?  Seven times.  This should be easy.  It’s almost like someone in power wants to see Obama fail.  That couldn’t be it.  Could it?  Is it really a coincidence that all of the shortterm solutions being touted by the right would have this very debate being fought again during next year’s election preventing the President from devoting any energy towards his campaign?  Nah.  That couldn’t be the plan.  That would mean that the Tea Baggers would rather put political gain ahead of the nation’s financial wellbeing.  They wouldn’t do that. (Sarcasm intended)      These people are all idiots. That’s really what it comes down to.  None of them, right or left, gives a crap about you.  They are about holding on to power and kicking the other guy to the curb. They all know that fighting two wars and not raising taxes will destroy an economy.  They all know this but without defense budgets and rich supporters they have no reelection money. Simple.  Instead they want to end so called entitlements while making you believe that it’s for your own good.  Never mind that you’ve been paying into Social Security your whole life. They want that money so they don’t have to take it away from their rich, Wall St. pals.  This is the debate now and, as far as I can see, there’s nowhere to go from here but down.  Welcome to the third world America.

Cont. From Cover August 29th at 6:00pm. They also scheduled a second public hearing about the new lodge for August 29th at 6:12pm. This somewhat whimsical sounding schedule has method behind it. If the first public hearing runs longer than 12 minutes, the second hearing begins after the first hearing is concluded. But if the first public hearing ends quickly and the second hearing had been scheduled for


Cont. From Cover

He said the project began as a means of lowering utility costs, since their current contract with National Grid was ending, and the new rates they would have been significantly higher. The company looked into generating their own power, but National Grid offered to allow them to connect to the transmission center located on Mill Street. The connection would create a single 115 kilovolt-amperes line, which would make the resort one of National Grid’s larger customers, and would help the resort keep its costs down. The line would run underground from the transmission center to the resort, which would require the line to cross railway lines, private property, a stream, and U.S. Route 219. The project also includes an addition to a building at the resort to house new switchgear for the transmission line. The project would create a stable power connection at the resort, and would allow the resort to control power issues at the various facilities themselves. The improved power supply would also provide adequate energy for a future upgrades to the resort, and it is one of the resorts largest capital expenses with a total investment cost of over $2 million. The application for the project seeks NY State sales tax abatements. The board approved a resolution authorizing a public hearing on the project. The board approved a resolution for a preliminary SEQR to be performed on the project. Craig Marlatt of Ross Wilson and Associates updated the CCIDA on the Bonaventure Square project. The project, which is being developed on an 18-acre plot held by Saint Bonaventure University, would offer a pedestrian friendly site featuring apartments for students and faculty, a nationally branded high-end hotel, a 200,000 plus


Cont. From Cover In most cases, there are fees and insurance forms that have to be submitted separately. On Wednesday, July 27, a seminar was lead by Tom Abritis (Zoning Officer), Ed Fredrickson (Fire Chief) and Tom Markel (of Bravo Events) for members of the Chamber of Commerce on tent safety

8pm the second meeting cannot begin until the announced time; meaning the board might have to sit around for an hour or so. There was discussion about the Town Boards realization that any law they might pass banning the practice of fracking in the town could be illegal; opening up the board to legal entanglements. There was mention that Town Supervisor John Burrell wants to put together a committee of members of the town and village boards, and the Town Planning Board to discuss ways the Comprehensive Plan for the town might be re-worded to prevent fracking within the

town. It was pointed out that the Comprehensive Plan is advisory only and does not carry the weight of law. One of the board members mentioned that he had seen a sign in the Summerville Road area advertising lots for sale. No one on the board could recall any subdivision being approved for that area. One of the board members mentioned that she would ask someone to go and check the sign out. The minutes for the meetings of March 28th, April 25th and June 6th were approved with minor corrections. The meeting was adjourned.

square foot sports complex, entertainment center, bookstore and space for retail shops. Plans for the sports complex include ice hockey rinks, artificial turf fields for soccer and lacrosse, and tennis courts. The project is aimed at filling in niche roles with little competition in the region, while accentuating already existing tourist destination in the area. Wiktor said the Bonaventure Square project compliments the already strong tourism of Cattaraugus County, and the facilities would greatly benefit Saint Bonaventure University by offering more activities to draw in students to the campus. Marlatt informed the board that the site plan for the project could be approved by the Town of Allegany as soon as their next meeting. He said the first phase of the project would begin as quickly as possible following the approval. The Bonaventure Square project has been under design for over 2 years. Marlatt said the plans for the apartments and bookstore have been finalized, though the sports complex designs would not be finished until a site plan approval, due to the cost. The facility is projected to create 300 jobs and an additional temporary 400 construction jobs. The applications for the project include NY State sales tax abatement and NY State mortgage recording tax abatement. The CCIDA approved a public hearing resolution for the Bonaventure Square project. The CCIDA approved a resolution for SEQR for the project. Wiktor introduced Paul Pfeiffer of the Buffalo Niagara Enterprise to the board members. Pfeiffer, who is the BNE’s investor & public relations director, thanked the board members for their investment in the BNE, and informed them that Wiktor would hold a seat for the CCIDA on their Investor’s Board. He said that eight businesses have expressed interest in

He said it appears that the income would be above projected amounts this year, even after removing $115,000 from a preliminary plan to sell scrap from unused railway lines, which the board tabled until next year.

The seminar started by reviewing some international examples of things that did go wrong and how they could have been prevented, and then there was a general discussion on New York State’s codes. Our Zoning Officer, Fire Department and the Village Board are required to monitor and approve the planning before a permit can be given, then there must be an inspection prior to the opening of the event.

The reaction from the fifteen attendees was positive and the information was eye opening for all. Hopefully, the application process will become a little bit easier now. The Mayor and the Village Board take the Special Events process very seriously, and it is only after a recommendation by the Special Events Committee is given to the Village Board that a vote is taken to allow a permit to be given to an applicant.

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