Championship Rodeo Funding for the Arts

Bareback Bron-Riding, Barrel Racing: 8 Events in 3 Days

Special Town Board Meeting Discusses Three Lots

By Eric Hund Univ. of Pittsburgh at Bradford

By John Thomas Staff writer

Experience the thrills of Old Western style competition this Fourth of July weekend at the 23rd annual Ellicottville Championship Rodeo. Owner John Kent, who has lived in Ellicottville his entire life, said as a kid he liked rough riding and breaking a horse to ride, but never had the opportunity to take part in a rodeo. He said memories of his youth inspired to open the rodeo, and seeing so many families spending quality time enjoy the shows, and the excited faces on the little children, make the effort worthwhile. The rodeo will feature eight events, spread over three days, with different contestants taking part in each day’s events. Some of the events at the rodeo are Bareback Bronc-Riding, Girls Barrel Racing, Brahma Bull Riding and the Hardway Buckout Junior Bull Riders. A stick horse race for kids 10 and under will also take place at each show, with stick horses available to purchase

Whether its Oldies Weekend, the Music Festival, the Jazz and Blues Weekend here in Ellicottville, or the Bemus Bay Pops at Lake Chautauqua, almost all the summer events we’ve come to expect receive some support from their county governments. But, in comparing the level of county support for arts events between Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties the difference could not be more apparent. “We have a good relationship with the county tourism office,” proclaims Brian McFadden from the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce. Each year the chamber receives a percentage of the funds collected county wide from the county occupancy tax: casually known as the bed tax. He goes on to say, “100% of the money must be used for advertising, mostly outside the county.” It can’t go to programs or to purchase equipment. The out of county advertising goes to raise awareness of Ellicottville events

Sneak Peek

at the event. Kent said the stick horse race is always fun to watch, and it gives the kids the excitement of performing in front of a large crowd, even if a few are on the shy side. The shows will also feature Clown John Hayden and his animal acts. A fireworks display will follow the rodeo on Friday and Saturday night, and Nashville Country Recording Artist Amanda Nagurney, an Orchard See RODEO page 11

in Western New York and eastern Pennsylvania. The agreement with the county, just signed, runs for three years and then will be redrawn. Mr. McFadden points out that people from out of the area are drawn in by the great events, tend to stay overnight and spend more money at the local restaurants and shops. Because of the chamber’s track record of successful events, tourism has increased and the amount of funds provided to the chamber has also increased. In fact, according to Mr. McFadden since 2005 overnight stays in town have doubled. It’s a different story over in Bemus Bay on Lake Chautauqua. Dan Dalpra, owner of the Italian Fisherman Restaurant has organized the Bemus Bay Pops for the past twelve years. The Pops began as a series of free concerts, and in the beginning received county bed tax support. The concerts, held on a floating stage next to the Italian Fisherman restaurant, See FUNDING page 11

Raccoon Rally Cycling Festival Riders Take to Allegany State Park this Weekend

Inside Business Track: Silver Fox Serves Up New Look For Summer... page 9

The Raccoon Rally Road Race starts this Saturday at 9:30 from Camp Allegany, the Rally headquarters located in the Red House region of the park. Registration begins at 8am.

By Nicholas Pircio WPIG, 95.7 FM

By Dean Whitcomb ‘The Fox’ recently opened an all-new outdoor patio for customers and has pushed forth several new marketing directives for the 2011 Summer Season.

Publisher’s Word “Summertime Fun”

Now that summer has officially arrived, (sorry snow folks), it’s time for some serious fun! And Ellicottville is right where you want to be, by golly. Rave reviews have been pouring in on “Women’s Weekend”, the annual I.A. golf Tournament, and last weekend’s “Muddy Buddy”. If you missed Sunday’s “Golf America Day” at Holiday Valley, you also missed a wonderful opportunity to learn from the best instructors in Western N.Y. for free, zip, nada. The “Sky High Adventure Park” is quickly getting a reputation as a “can’t miss” summertime destination, and judging by the attendance at the beautiful pools at the Valley, one can only

surmise this also is a sure winner for the entire family. Add to this the normal hiking, biking, camping, white water rafting, kayaking, jogging, shopping, eating, and general goofing arounding and you find yourself smack-dab in the middle of a typical summer in Ellicottville! Boring, we’re not… So, dear readers, take a deep breath and get ready for one of the best seasons of the year. It’s going to be busy, fun, entertaining and – awesome! We’ll do our level best to share all that’s available in our own usual informative and entertaining way. Let us know how we’re doing, will you? Until next week… JZ

Bench Dedicated to Blou Village Bench Placed in the Name of Local K-9

The Village of Ellicottville has installed a bench that will forever honor the life of Blou, a local K-9 hero who passed away a year and a half ago. The late honoree is possibly the most storied dog in Ellicottville’s history. Blou was more than just a blue-eyed Border collie when he passed away last December. “He was the mascot for the Letters From Home Program, spokesdog for the Almost Home Animal Sanctuary and probably the only dog in history to hear from two sitting American presidents,” said Jay Monti, his owner.

ZBA Discusses Variance

“My Listings Turn To SOLD!”

22 Years Of Local Real Estate Knowledge

Property Owner of Van Buren Place Vacant Lot Wishes to Build

By Nicholas Pircio WPIG, 95.7 FM The Ellicottville Zoning Board of Appeals tried to please all parties involved during a public hearing on June 21st, specifically called to deal with building a new home at 10 Van Buren Place. And although neighbors shook hands at the end of the meeting, the outcome did not leave anyone pleased. ZBA Chairman Matt McAndrew is referring the matter to Village Mayor Charles Coolidge for consideration. McAndrew said the owner of the property, James DiGiore, can proceed with his plans to build a new home on the vacant lot if the village agrees to allow “overhangs” from the house onto a village easement on the southeast side of DiGiore’s property. His is the only empty lot on Van Buren Place. At issue are the proximity of DiGiore’s planned house to the neighboring lots, and the size of

the new home. Neighbors feel the footprint of the new home is too large for the lot in comparison with their own homes, and therefore not in harmony with the character of the neighborhood. DiGiore pointed out that he has followed all the steps required by government since he filed for a variance in February, and has put a lot of money into the home’s design, which he does not want to change. Neighbors also feel that they were not given sufficient notice of DiGiore’s plans ahead of time. McAndrew noted that, “Property owners within a 200 foot radius (of the empty lot) were supposed to be notified, but mistakenly, only those within a 100 foot radius were notified.” Neighbor Pete Widger addressed the meeting with the comments, “There are four statements from property within the 200 foot boundary saying that in our view, the lot is a 75 foot lot. We feel strongly that the fifteen foot side yard setback be

maintained as is in the covenants. We certainly don’t want to be bad neighbors, but it’s just the way we feel about the lot that’s there.” Eamonn Ryan, who lives next to DiGiore’s property, echoed those feelings, stating that, “The house should conform to the thirty foot side yard setbacks and therefore, would not look out of place with all the other houses in the area.” DiGiore said that if you went property by property, you would find more than one property with less than a fifteen foot setback. Widger said he believes variances are granted on the basis of hardship, and did not see a “distinct hardship” in this case. He acknowledged that “everybody’s in a tough spot.” McAndrew said the ZBA’s big concern has always been drainage, both on DiGiore’s lot and on his neighbor’s properties. In conclusion the Zoning Board voted in favor of Mr. DiGiore. He will go to the Planning Board for architectural review.

Sheriff’s Accreditation

County Sheriff’s Penny L. Chapman Recieves Certificate of Achievement ALBANY, N.Y. - The New York State Sheriffs’ Association Institute recently held a weeklong Basic School for deputy sheriffs and civilian staff who work in Sheriffs’ civil divisions. All Sheriffs have civil law enforcement functions, which include the service of process, and enforcement of judgments and other court orders and mandates. Sheriffs must keep exact records on such items as judgment interest, fees collected for the county, and disbursements to judgment creditors, and these items were reviewed at the school. This school also covered some of the more difficult and timeconsuming cases that Sheriffs face in their civil divisions. Deputies who are experts in civil enforcement law participated as instructors for the school. Deputies who are experts in civil enforcement law participated as instructors for the school. Twenty-eight deputies and other staff from Sheriffs’ Offices around the State attended the program. This is a two-

Architectural Digest Story and Photos by John Thomas Staff Writer

In Paise of the Elegant Chalet

The phrase “elegant chalet� has a certain oxymoron quality to it. When most people think of a chalet they tend to think of , knotty pine walls, and rough hewn wooden benches passing for furniture. The sort of place where a lumberjack would be comfortable. But the home at 5103 Canada Hill Road fits the phrase perfectly. From outside the chalet presents a slightly nondescript exterior, the lines of the original A-frame are still visible; the new addition juts out from the old roof line. The roof over the covered deck gives some protection for the front door, and keep the snow from piling up. The brown paint on the exterior siding blends well with the forest background. Remodeled in 2009 from top to bottom, every detail of the house was completely re-done: from the floors, to the dry wall, the siding, electrical, plumbing, and floors. The result is a house that blends elegance and sophistication in a way defies the common expectation of

chalet. When you step inside the first thing you will notice is the woodwork. Handsome hardwood floors run throughout the main level. The walls are painted in muted earth tones; not a piece of knotty pine to be found. The great room is spacious, and high up towards the cathedral ceiling a window lets in the afternoon light. Some great leather sofas make up the sitting area across from the entertainment center. The wood tones continue in the kitchen with its walnut cabinets and beautiful counter tops. In the center is a large island that can serve as a prep area or dining table. Best of all its easily movable to reposition it for entertaining. The window over the stainless steel double sink look out to the forest. The glass topped electric range gives the kitchen a sleek modern look and make clean up a breeze. Over in a corner of the kitchen is a little booth for family board games. Just off there is the laundry. A pair of sliding french doors opens to the covered back deck. The cover is a great touch allowing the chef to keep the barbeque fired up all winter. On this level is one

At the landing is a nice wood computer desk for the home office. There is room here for a foosball table and bunk beds for the kids. Just off the this room is the second master suite. It too shares the sloped walls of the other master, and the dark brown walls give it an urban flair. Through the sliding french doors is a private deck.

Brewing Up the Perfect Pair EBC’s Jim Nau Hosts Buffalo State Alumni Beer Pairing Dinner

Inside Business Track Silver Fox Restaurant Serves Up New Look For Summer

By Dean Whitcomb Villager Staff

By Dean Whitcomb Villager Staff

The Ellicottville Brewing Company held a beer pairing dinner on Wednesday, June 15 2011 for the Buffalo State Alumni Beer Club.  The guest organization is made up of Buffalo State University Alumni and their spouses and friends and travels throughout the Western New York Area.  The evening was hosted by one of EBC’s Business Managers, Jim Nau, who works predominantly out of EBC West in Fredonia, but carries on duties in the Ellicottville location as well.     The dinner consisted of five courses paired with five different tastes of EBC’s brews.  The set up was strictly elegant.  Each plate was uniquely decorated and splashed with color, which matched appropriately to each of the beer samples, which were distributed in a sort of miniature whiskey snifter.  Nau led what would be more of an open forum, with a discussion of the making of beer while taking time before each course to explain the dish and sample in front of the group and why it was paired together.  The courses were as follows:     Course 1 Appetizer: Smoked pork belly and corn fritter which was rich, fried, fatty, and slightly spicy, but also a great taste on the palate. The beer pairing: Project 32 which is the pilot brew for the Octoberfest Lager which should be out middle to late August.  It has a rich malty backbone which dominates the palate with slight spicy German hop bitterness. Course 2 Soup: Corn Chowder with basil and mint, which was creamy and chowderlike, (and not to mention, one of the most delicious and warming soups I’ve ever tasted).  It was paired with the Mowmasters Ultra Pale Ale, which is a nice light-bodied summer brew with loads of

The Silver Fox Restaurant in Ellicottville, NY has always been known to offer the finest of dining experiences in an upscale atmosphere.   Owner Mike Nickolson proudly operates the year-round business with a highly trained staff, top-of-the-line food offerings and a special reserve of wines and bourbons.   The experience at the Silver Fox is truly one-of-a-kind and beginning this summer, it has become even more unique.      ‘The Fox’ recently opened an all-new outdoor patio for customers and has pushed forth several new marketing directives for the 2011 Summer Season.  The patio is the newest addition to the restaurant, which has been relatively unchanged structurally since opened by Mike Nickolson and his father, Gerry in 1974. The patio adds seating for roughly 40 guests and has also brought in live acoustic music weekly every Saturday through the summer season. Always known for it’s savory steaks, The Silver Fox recently added an all-new “dry-aged” steak to its lineup. The dryaging process differs from the typical wet-aging in the fact that it produces an extremely tender and flavorful cut of meat by aging the steak for roughly 72 days before it is delivered to a restaurant for sale and consumption. The wet-aging process takes just under two weeks and is the most commonly offered cut of steak in restaurants all throughout the United States. In fact, only about 5 restaurants in the entire country offer dry-aged steaks on their menus. This addition brings a salivating new twist to the already exquisite menu collaboratively produced by Mike Nickolson and Master Chef, Jack Atkinson.

citrusy hop aroma but low hop bitterness.  It was designed to be the ultimate choice for refreshment on a hot summer day, quenching your thirst without filling your belly.    Course 3 Salad: Roasted beet salad with homemade ricotta Sea Salt and Fresh basil.  It was by far the most beautiful dish served.  The dish was served with EBC’s Summer Wheat  beer, which is a German Style  Hefeweizen.  It is best described as an unfiltered wheat beer and typically has a pronounced banana aroma and slight flavor reminiscent of cloves, which is complimented by a slight spice flavor.       Course 4 Entrée: Short Ribs and Sweet Pea Risotto.  This was by far the richest dish of the evening, but the risotto was cooked perfectly and very satisfying.  It was served with EBC’s  Black Hops dark pale ale, which is a bit of an oxymoron, but delicious nonetheless.  Black hops has the traditional caramel, maltybody and flavor, but with just a touch of roasted barley, giving it its darker color and a slightly drier finish.    Course 5 Dessert: Vanilla Panna Cotta and Berries, which was similar to vanilla custard with a rich blueberry topping.  It was served with

the Cattaraugus County Cuvee.  This is strong blonde ale aged on American oak for 3 months. It uses Canadian 2 row barley Belgian Cara-malts and a touch of American wheat mixed with American Cascade and English Golding hops.  The taste Starts slightly sweet and malty, but then fades into an array of flavors like green banana citrus and vanilla, and eventually dries out from the oak tannins.  It was a perfect dessert beer paired with the sweet dish finisher.    If you’ve never attended a beer pairing dinner or brewing classes at EBC…do it already!  Nau’s knowledge and passion for brewing and the company as a whole was present in every description and brewing lesson.  Smiles were contagious between the staff and table of guests, which made the evening even more of a success.  The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, the beer was cold and refreshing and the food was to die for.  Buffalo State truly had their taste buds tested on a great evening.     For more information on EBC or any tastings, classes or other events, visit EBC online at www.ellicottvillebrewing. com, or just swing in for a pint and ask the staff!  Don’t miss out on the fun!

Always known for it’s savory steaks, The Silver Fox recently added an all-new “dry-aged” steak to its lineup. The dry-aging process differs from the typical wet-aging in the fact that it produces an extremely tender and flavorful cut of meat by aging the steak for roughly 72 days before it is delivered to a restaurant for sale and consumption.

Open Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 4:30 pm through the summer, The Silver Fox will be offering two new promotions for all patrons: Friday Date Night and a Golf Scorecard Discount.

By Katherine Preston Wellness Consultant Often, people will focus on the physical aspect of better health. However, other dimensions of wellness need to be addressed in order to achieve total health. “Wellness” is a term that refers to a person’s complete state and sense of well-being. There are six dimensions to “wellness”: physical, social, emotional, spiritual, vocational and psychological/mental. All of these dimensions are needs which are co-dependant. They must all be met for a person to be “at peace” with him/herself. At times, the ability to meet these needs may be challenged, effecting an individual’s mental health and emotional wellness.

carriers) also stay active and sharp by creating paths of communication between our muscles and mind. Hand-eye and eye-foot co-ordination skills, balance and gait can definitely benefit from physical activity. Our emotional wellness can also improve, as we destress with fitness. Exercising in the company of others can also meet our needs socially. It’s very important to create a balance between both fitness and non-fitness activities. With a variety of activities, the brain is forced to recall different pathways, thus staying alert and sharp. Groups/ clubs can provide the social, vocational, emotional, psychological/ mental and spiritual health we need. Remember the importance of variety and balance. Keep it fun- for both a healthy body and mind! Personal Training Tip of the Week: When performing abdominal crunches, always avoid a straight spine and stiff neck. Round your back, drop your shoulders and chin very slightly when both rolling up – and unrolling- your body when doing a crunch. Lift and control the movement with your abdominals- never with your neck. Contact: absfit@cogeco. ca

Statistics show that, for many in today’s society, this is a daily reality. Fitness and proper nutrition can play major roles and have a very strong effect on our physical and mental health. Nutritionally, our daily food intake should be based on the following: 50- 55% complex carbohydrates, 2530% high quality protein and 20 % good fats. In fact, complex carbohydrates are needed for our brain maintenance and nervous system. Foods rich in sugars, additives, colorings and salt, cause havoc on our mental wellbeing and should be avoided. Meanwhile, we are familiar with the many physical benefits of exercise. Regular exercise can decrease tension, worry, stress or negative feelings through physical exertion. Physical activity is a great coping strategy and stress buster! When engaged in physical activity, our brains release the “happy” chemical “serotonin”. Exercise also increases the communication between our brain and numerous bodily systems. Regular exercise can result in weight loss, increased energy, a strengthened immune system and a more positive mood. When doing physical activity, our brain’s neurotransmitters (message

By Doug Arrowsmith You couldn’t picture one without the other and, a few years back, I found out why.  I had been growing disillusioned with the state of the music industry for a long time by then.  With the downward spiral of music sales in full swing and the seeming inevitability of digital sales taking over I was looking for an alternative that would preserve the integrity of the only thing that mattered to me.  The sound.  Somewhere in the storage room that used to be a bedroom in my parents house a hidden treasure was buried.  My first stereo.  A behemoth of wooden speaker cabinets, turntables and cassette decks and, ironically, the best sounding stereo I had ever owned.  Also in the room?  A mountain of vinyl.  A goldmine of sonic rapture.  I dusted the old warhorse off, spliced a few cables and plugged her in.  She was still alive.  I reached into a pile of albums and picked one at random.  Born to Run.  With the turntable running and the needle dropped I sat back,

turned it up and waited.  Then there was the sound.  There was the answer.  By the time I had reached the final song on the second side my mind had been made up.  Music and vinyl just went together and then Jungle Land began.  What was this?  Was this the same Springsteen song I had heard a thousand times before?  Where the hell had I been?  Music and vinyl.  Bruce and Clarence.  One without the other?  Never.      What was it that Clarence Clemons brought to that song and, for that matter Rock N’ Roll in general?  There certainly had been better sax players.  Bird Parker comes instantly to mind.  Bird, however, never had lyrics to work with.  In Jungle Land The Big Man truly shined.  He became something that no other sax player would ever be.  He became the interpreter of those lyrics.  He brought all of the lost hope, angst and failed dreams of Jungle Land to life.  He became the emotional soul of everything that was happening in that particular moment in time.  The “Rat” was going to die and, by the time Clarence’s solo was over, you already knew what was coming. He  told you what was coming before Bruce did and it was amazing.  And it would only get better from there.      That particular day at my parent’s house I flipped the album and listened again.  While it was playing part of the joy of vinyl came back to me.  The Album art.  Something digital music will never have.  Born To Run isn’t particularly flashy in it’s black and white

appearance but, in it’s own way, it speaks volumes.  Bruce, with a knowing smile, leans over the Big Mans shoulder during a solo and just watches.  You can almost see the amazed head shake that surely followed. He knew.  He needed the Big Man.  Without him the songs, although still amazing, lacked something.  Dylan is the best songwriter who ever lived but you never really know what he’s feeling.  Springsteen bleeds raw emotion in his music and it’s the Big Man who conveys the emotion through his sax.  It’s all right there.  In that smile.  It’s all you need to know.      It doesn’t really matter how you feel about the E Street Band or, for that matter, music itself.  Everyone loved Clarence.  Now he’s gone and the world just got a little more lost.  The Big Man died on Saturday from complications due to a severe stroke suffered on June 12th.  There have been greater sidemen but there has never been a better duo than Bruce and Clarence.  I’m not sure if the E Street Band will ever play again but I can take a little comfort knowing that Clarence’s last show with the band happened last year in Buffalo.  For my part, I’m still buying every album I can get my hands on and my old stereo, long since silenced by time and use, still hangs on my wall in a place of honor.  She has been replaced by a flashier USB turntable that, although great, still lacks a certain something. Just like the E Street Band without Clarence.  RIP Big Man.  You’ll be missed.

maybe even introducing people to some new favorites they’ve never heard before. “This year, we literally have something for everyone, including families, the over40 crowd and even younger, edgier audiences,” said Brian McFadden, Executive Director of the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce. The festival weekend starts a day early this year on Thursday as Sudden Urge – Gettin’ Down with Dance & Disco –ushers in the festival from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. as part of the free Ellicottville Gazebo Series. Then on Friday, July 1st, the festival will move down to Holiday Valley’s Main Stage where it will welcome Rusted Root at 8 p.m. (opened by The Villager’s own maestro, Dean Whitcomb) Saturday, July 2nd, Ellicottville will be overtaken by KC and the Sunshine Band, a hallmark band of the ‘70s and ‘80s with hits such as “That’s the way (I like it),” “(Shake, Shake, Shake) dShake Your Booty” and many fother classics people have come rto love. e n n l s - Cont.

have each year attracted 250 thousand people to Bemus Point. Over the years the county board has reduced the amount of bed tax money available for the concerts. In 2007 the Pops received $12,500, in 2008 $10,000, support was increased in 2009 to $15,000, but in 2010 slipped to $9,806, this year support has dropped to$3,775. The county recently revoked $8,800 in support it had promised the Pops for county bicentennial activities. The money involved comes from the county bed tax and not from county taxpayers. In a letter to the Chautauqua County Legislators Mr. Dalpra pointed out several things: the Pops are a 501(c) 3 non profit organization, the majority of seats for the concerts are free, most seasons they lose money, and that the Pops “produce one of the biggest economic development and cultural promotion impacts in the

Those who enjoy cross-country should take in the Raccoon Rally Short Track Cross Country Race, starting at 1pm.

Kent said, “People come up to me and say once you come to the Ellicottville Championship Rodeo you’re hooked, and will keep coming back every year.” People come from all over the country to see this rodeo, with some coming from Texas, California and Florida, he said. He added that he has pre-sold more tickets this year than ever before, and that this year’s show is going to have the largest crowd in the history of the event. He credits a more active ad campaign in magazines, posters in eight regional malls, and actively handing out over 25,000 flyers at various parades, carnivals and dairy festivals this year. Shows will run Friday, July 1 at 7 p.m., Saturday, July 2 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sunday, July 3 at 2 p.m. with the gates opening to the public 2 hours before each event.

entire county.” Reached for comment Mr. Dalpra said the county legislators, “don’t truly understand the impact this thing (the Pops) has.” In the letter he details the kind of economic impact the Pops and other related events at Bemus Bay have on the county, estimating that this season the concerts will bring in 481 thousand people, and over $12,000,000 in revenue to Chautauqua County. In the letter Mr. Dalpra quotes extensively from the County’s 20/20 Comprehensive Plan. In it the legislators state several goals including: maintain and improve recreational opportunities, invest in regional arts and entertainment, and strengthen partnerships with economic developmentminded agencies throughout the region. In our conversation he pointed out, “we’re doing what they asked for.” He went on to say, “all these things (the concerts and events at Bemus Bay) attract more and more people.” In referring to the cut backs in county support he added, “what’s wrong with that picture?” At the end of

the letter Mr. Dalpra offers a blunt warning to the legislators. “We will review all options at the end of the current season, and determine if we care to accept offers from communities in other regions who value the 480,000 people and $12 million impact we can bring to them instead of to Chautauqua County.” Wednesday evening Mr. Dalpra attended a meeting of the Chautauqua County legislators where they voted not to reinstate the $8,800 pulled from this years funding for the Bemus Bay Pops. Back in Ellicottville Brian McFadden is still sanguine about Cattaraugus County funding. “We’re incredibly lucky to have two great ski areas (Holiday Valley and HoliMont) in town.” The two areas made Ellicottville popular in the winter many years ago. When Mr. McFadden took over the chamber he set a goal of making the town a name brand tourist destination, by sponsoring great summer events, “and I think we’ve done that,” he adds. Apparently the county agrees.

challenging,” with competitors looking for the fastest run down the slope. The pre-entry fee is $25, with the race day entry fee at $30. Race day entries are always welcome, but come prepared with the appropriate body armor of helmet, knee and shin protectors. Participants will ride to the start of the course. If the words “wild”, “unpredictable,” and “amazing” spark your interest, then Thunder Rocks is the place to be for the Raccoon Rally Trials Competition. Organizers say, “A fresh set of hands is taking control (of the event). Riders from across the nation can expect Class A courses, judging, and management.” You can sign up the day of the event at Thunder Rocks, if you dare! Sunday’s action features the Raccoon Rally Cross Country Race, the largest single event of the entire weekend. The “fun and

challenging” course follows the Art Roscoe Cross Country Trail System. Cyclists can expect a variety of long and short climbs and descents, fast downhills, and a one-mile gravel road start and finish. The fun begins at 10am, with various skill level groups leaving at different times. There’s a pre-registration fee of $25, and $30 the day of the race. Sunday’s activities also include the Raccoon Rally Bike toss at 1 o’clock, where the idea is to see how far you can toss a “junker,” which will be supplied. There’s also a kids race at 2pm, which is free for all kids and is broken into three skill levels. Proceeds from the Raccoon Rally help support the Allegany Nordic Ski Patrol, the American Diabetes Association, and the Western New York Mountain Biking Association.

But then on Sunday, July 3rd, the music festival takes on another facet as the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra takes the Main Stage by storm at 7:30 p.m. with the Sounds of Disney – kids from 2 to 92 will be finding something to sing about. However, that’s not all the famous BPO will be playing. In honor of the Fourth of July the next day, the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra will perform “Stars and Stripes Forever.” As if that isn’t enough, a spectacular show of fireworks is choreographed to highlight the every note of Stars and Stripes Forever. Both of your eyes and ears will get a treat that Sunday. As the headlining performances will be firing up the Holiday Valley Main Stage, the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce says it’s easier than ever to enjoy these shows. Just buy a ticket, bring your own blankets or chairs to the bottom of the slope and make yourself at home. Tickets for Rusted Root are $25 and both the tickets for the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and KC and the Sunshine Band are $35 each. However, if you hurry now and buy the tickets pre-sale, which is available until this Saturday, the 25th, you can save $5 per ticket! Either stop

There are 14 weeks left on your contract, and as discussed, these remaining weeks will run on an every other week basis. Below is your run schedule. Any questions, or if you have any changes to either of these ads, just let me know.

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!
