The new school year is starting off well for Ellicottville Central School. Students tested in 4th grade math and 7th grade English Language Arts (ELA) both came in first place for Western New York schools. Altogether students achieving proficiency score of three or four placed ECS in the top seven schools in eight out of twelve tests. The testing area covered the school districts in Western New York, consisting of about 95 schools. In commenting about the results, School Superintendent Mark J. Ward said, “our students did very well in both math and ELA.” He went on to credit small class sizes, a veteran staff, and emphasis on teaching the Six Traits of Writing for the results. In looking forward to the year Mr. Among other changes made this year Mr. Ward says, “We tightened up our policies on eligibility for Ward outlined four goals: 1) Use the participating in athletics and extra curricular activities,” meaning students wishing to play on a team or See SCHOOL page 10

Sneak Peek Architectural Digest: Understated Sophistication ... Page 6

By John Thomas In a town full of quaint chalets, adorable Victorians, efficient condos, and entry-level castles; this house stands out. Its sophisticated lines and quiet elegance make it a home that is at once chic and refined and at the same time comfortable and homey. The home is a toned down version of the Modernist architecture of the 60s and 70s; a non-peaked roof, double banks of windows, and an open floor plan.

Several area communities will host memorial services. Even your attendance makes a difference, so if you’re not able to volunteer service or give blood, attend a service and observe a few moments of silence honoring those that were lost on this tragic day.

By Dean Whitcomb The Villager Staff It is no secret that America changed forever following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Everything changed; our national security policies, airport security, our fears, our thoughts, our lives…everything. It’s almost impossible to come up with anything good surrounding the events

of that tragic day. However, no matter the depth of the destruction taken on that day, there is one important factor that must be recognized, especially by members of the younger generations in America, and that is the growth and recognition of our pride in our nation. From the moment the attacks began, each and every one of us See HONOR page 10

Yard Sales Span Over 40 Miles Yard Sales, Barbecues Set Along Route 16 on Saturday September 17th

By Nicholas Pircio WPIG, 95.7 FM Everybody loves a yard sale. It may be called a garage sale or a tag sale. But whatever you call it, people flock there to find bargains. Come Saturday morning, on September 17th, a leisurely drive along Route 16 through Cattaraugus County should bring your vehicle to a stop more than once. The day will be devoted to treasure hunters up and down the highway, all the way from Yorkshire in the north to Knapp Creek in the south, just before the Pennsylvania line. It’s all thanks to the Route 16 Community Corridor Partnership, a grassroots effort which started the event last year. Besides yard sale items, travelers will also enjoy at least five chicken barbecues along the way, part of a Firemen’s Barbecue Competition. Hours for the competition are from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. Inquiries about the day are pouring in to Scott Miller, who’s helping to

BUILT IN THE USA Introducing the 2011 KIA Optima In Showroom Now

Oh the Signs Of Autumn... The foliage has been losing its usual green freshness throughout the month of August, and signs of autumn are starting to appear. Another change of season is at hand… Kids are back in school, the days are getting shorter and the warm sunny weather is off-set by long chilly nights. The character of our little village adjusts once again, moving from the easygoing summer mode to one of a more energetic nature. Change is around every corner and the urgency to adapt to this new phase is apparent in all things. Far from being simply a time for change in the color pallet of our surroundings, you can see the effects of Autumn on our

political, social and economic environs, as well. In this issue of The Villager, we carry stories about economic growth for local communities and more planned development for the town where we live and raise our families. It seems to me things are starting to bloom in Cattaraugus County - could it be the seasonal momentum effects more than just plant life? I think so… So, dear readers, enjoy the bright warm sunshine this new season bestows on us, and please remember one of my favorite quotes: “Change always comes bearing gifts.” Make it your goal this week to be happy, productive and positive. Until next week… JZ

SBU Gets Financial Advice

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y., Sept. 6, 2011 — Five experts in stock portfolio management will lead an all-day boot camp Friday for St. Bonaventure University’s Students in Money Management. “This is a very intensive conference for the students to get up to speed on the many things they will need this year to manage the portfolio,” said Dr. Jim Mahar, associate professor of finance and SIMM adviser. Students in Money Management is an experiential learning program in which students manage a real investment portfolio. SIMM offers students the opportunity to participate fully in all aspects of the portfolio management process; learn and apply equity valuation techniques; and network with alumni and other business professionals. Started in 2004, the fund was worth approximately $197,000 at the close of trading Monday. The fund has consistently outperformed the S&P 500 since it was created, Mahar said. The day will feature individual presentations from the experts, a working lunch that will highlight the history and importance of SIMM, and a roundtable discussion in Dresser Auditorium of the Murphy Building. That 3 p.m. roundtable concludes the SIMM camp; it’s free and open to the public.

Architectural Digest Understated Sophistication

Story and Photos by John Thomas Staff Writer In a town full of quaint chalets, adorable Victorians, efficient condos, and entry-level castles; this house stands out. Its sophisticated lines and quiet elegance make it a home that is at once chic and refined and at the same time comfortable and homey. The home is a toned down version of the Modernist architecture of the 60s and 70s; a non-peaked roof, double banks of windows, and an open floor plan. Yet, as modern as the floor plan is, it still maintains many traditional home elements: a large family room with a gas fireplace, a separate living room with a wood burning fireplace, a formal dining area, and a spacious master suite. Hardwood floors and brick

fireplaces on the main floor soften add warmth to the squared away minimalist lines of the Bauhaus (Modernist) influenced architecture. The bedrooms on the ground floor have thick wall-to-wall carpeting to soften the spare lines from the main level. The laundry and a small workbench are in a small sub level. But, before you think that this home will never cut it with your ski loving family, remember that it’s just across the street from Holiday Valley, and offers a view of the slopes and a quick access to the slopes, golf course and the new Adventure Park. Even better, it’s a short drive to downtown Ellicottville’s restaurants and shops. For more information about this property contact Tina Dillon at ERA Team ERA V P Real Estate, The single pitch roof doesn’t have a traditional peak, nevertheless the snow load slides off the metal roof. The roof line allows a large bank of windows to run along the front and back walls of the home. (716) 474-5646.

Top Left: The stainless steel appliances and black granite counter tops in the kitchen are softened by the beautiful wood cabinets. This efficient space has a gas fired range and oven, and a huge refrigerator (right). Note the stainless steal pot rack over the stove. Bottom Left: The spare lines and repeating windows are echoed in the master bedroom with adjoining bath. The carpeting provides warmth. There are two more bedrooms and another bath on this level. Top Right: Not found in too many homes these days, the formal dining area is separated from the living room by the brick fireplace. Conveniently situated just off the kitchen.

Top: The clean squared lines of the family room reveal the Modernist influence of the home. As opposed to the cold spare feeling many Modernist homes have, the look is softened by the warm hardwood flooring and brick fireplace. Bottom: The repeating set of windows breaks up the view out to the deck and the trees. The second set of windows high up under the roof let in a generous amount of afternoon sun. At the far end a brick fireplace adds warmth to the room.

Film Festival to Explore Culture of Nepal, Global Slave Trade

In Stock Now!

New Fivefinger Models In Stock for Fall Season! ---Thinking About Winter? We Are Too. Skis, Boots, Clothes & Footwear Arriving Daily! We Can’t to Show You! The City Garage 5 Monroe St. Ellicottville


ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y., Sept. 5, 2011 — Three movies with themes that complement the 2011-12 All Bonaventure Reads book “Little Princes” have been selected for the upcoming All Bonaventure Views film festival at the university. “Little Princes: One Man’s Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal” is the story of 29-year-old Conor Grennan, who traded his day job for a year-long trip around the globe. During a three-month stint volunteering at the Little Princes Children’s Home, an orphanage in war-torn Nepal, Grennan learned that the children were not orphans, but had been taken from their homes by human traffickers. The films will be shown in the Rigas Theater of the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts on campus. The viewings are free and open to the public. The following movies will be shown: 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7 — “Returned: Child Soldiers of Nepal’s Maoist Army” tells the personal story of Nepali boys and girls as they attempt to rebuild their lives after fighting a

Maoist revolution. Through the voices of former child soldiers, the film examines why these children joined the Maoists and explores the prevention of future recruitment. 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14 — “Everest: Beyond the Limit” was a Discovery Channel mini-series. With unusually severe weather and heartbreaking circumstances, this expedition up the world’s tallest peak becomes fraught with unexpected perils, leading to an emotional journey full of fear, hardship, exhaustion, disappointment and unforgettable triumphs. 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 21 — “Call + Response” is a first-of-its-kind feature documentary that reveals the world’s 27 million dirtiest secrets: There are more slaves today than ever before in human history. The film goes undercover where slavery is thriving, from the child brothels of Cambodia to the slave brick kilns of rural India, to reveal that in 2009 slave traders made more money than Google, Nike and Starbucks combined. Luminaries on the issue, including Cornel West,

Madeleine Albright, Daryl Hannah, Julia Ormond, Ashley Judd and Nicholas Kristof, offer firsthand accounts of this 21st century trade. West draws parallels between the music of the American slaves and the chart-topping hits of today, with performances by such artists as Moby, Switchfoot, Five for Fighting, and Matisyahu, among others, transforming these chilling facts about slavery into motivation for preventing it from flourishing in the future. All first-year students are asked to read the annual All Bonaventure Reads text, which is the cornerstone of the University 101 course. Many other courses will adopt the text, and the entire campus community is invited to read the book and participate in the numerous events planned over the course of the fall semester. Highlighting the fall programming will be a Monday, Sept. 26, campus visit by Grennan, during which he’ll give a public presentation at 7 p.m. in the Reilly Center Arena. For more information about All Bonaventure Reads, visit www.

25 Hour Workday Contest Crowley Webb Celebrates 25 Years with Business First for Contest

BUFFALO, NY – Crowley Webb, a full-service marketing communications agency in Buffalo, is celebrating its 25th year in business. To commemorate this milestone, the agency has partnered with Business First to create an unusual contest. The prize: an advertising campaign for one deserving local startup company produced in one marathon, nonstop, 25-hour day. This could include anything from corporate identity to print ad concepts to digital applications, depending on the needs of the winning client. In any event, it’s going to be a lot of work, which is fitting because the agency just so happens to be launching a new “hardworking” brand position.

“We’ve always been hardworking people, and our work works hard as well. So the hardworking agency position fits like a glove,” said James Hettich, CEO. “Shining a spotlight on this – and helping out a young company at the same time – seemed like a powerful idea.” Businesses will be asked to enter by submitting proposals at beginning, appropriately enough, on Labor Day, September 5. Finalists will then be announced on the Crowley Webb TwentyFive Hour Workday website on November 14. Finalists will be encouraged to ask the general public to vote for them which can also be done on the website. The finalist with the most votes

will be announced as the winner on December 5. Some criteria for entrants include: WNY-based startup company that has been in existence fewer than 25 months; passion for creative thinking and open to new creative direction; and willingness to invest in some media. Contestants cannot be a direct competitor of Crowley Webb or any of their existing clients. Founded in 1986, Crowley Webb continues its growth as one of Western New York’s most successful advertising and marketing communications agencies. For more information, call (716) 856-2932, visit the website www.crowleywebb. com, or connect at https://www.

Roofing Jobs Act of 2011 Congressman Tom Reed to Introduce Legislation for New Jobs

During an appearance at Upstate Roofing and Painting in Brighton, Congressman Tom Reed announced that he will introduce the Roofing Efficiency Jobs Act of 2011 when Congress reconvenes in Washington after Labor Day. Reed’s bill, which will create a 20-year depreciation period for commercial roofs (instead of the current 39-year period) will create nearly 40,000 roofing manufacturing and construction jobs nationwide. “The average lifespan of a typical commercial roof is only 17 years,” Reed explained. “This

legislation corrects an inequity in the tax code by aligning the depreciation period closer to the life span of a commercial roof. This bill is a win-win. It is a win for roofing manufacturing and construction jobs, it is a win for businesses wishing to install more energy efficient roofing, and it is a win for the economy.” As part of the legislation, an existing roof system must be replaced with a commercial roof that meets benchmark energy efficiency (“cool roof”) standards to qualify for the 20 year depreciation

period. Accelerating the installation of cool roofs could reduce U.S. energy consumption by upwards of 11. 4 trillion BTU per year and save small businesses and consumers millions of dollars in energy costs. Reed was joined at the announcement by Dave Pastore, President and CEO of Upstate Roofing and Painting, Roger Gutheil of GMR Associates, Ron Haney, Business Manager for Roofers Local 195 and Dan Richardson, Business Manager of Roofers Local 203.

Healthy Children for a Successful School Year

By Lilian Dirito , C.N.H.P. Wellness Consultant There is a school supply list that we follow thoroughly before school starts every year. There is also perhaps the most important supply list for our children: their healthy body supply list. Statistics show that obesity in children has more than tripled in the past 30 years. Two facts that really concern me as a parent are: the obesity increase on children aged 6 to 11, which has gone from 6.5% in 1980 to 19.6% in 2008. The second one is, that in children aged 5-14, the leading cause of death after accidents is cancer. Also, in the last two decades, type 2 diabetes, a disease usually diagnosed in adults age 40 years and older, has been reported among children and adolescents with increasing frequency in the United States. Let’s help our children to have a healthy start every day: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day: Good sources of protein are crucial for a healthy start. It helps to nurture the brain to think, focus and perform physical activity. Protein also helps to keep sugar levels balanced throughout the day. Smoothies are a great choice to bring all those important nutrients first

thing in the morning if you and your children can’t go for the whole cooked meal. Coconut milk is a good choice, because coconut has Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFAs), these good fats are very important for the brain and are not stored right the way, but rather used in the body as energy. You can also use almond milk or rice milk, which can be easily made at home. To either type of milk you choose, you can add a different fruit or fruits every morning. Raspberries, blueberries, black berries are a good option for their high content of antioxidants. Peaches are in season now and they make a very tasty smoothie. You can also add pecans or walnuts (for children five and older, avoid if there is any allergy to nuts), pumpkinseeds (are very high in zinc, an important mineral for keeping the immune system strong), ground sesame seeds (high in vegetable protein and calcium), ground flax seed, a tsp of Chia seeds (very high in protein and omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids). Bee Pollen is another complete form of protein (called a super food) plus it has all the vitamin B’s in high amounts. If you need a sweetener, use Stevia. Once you have all this ingredients, you can opt to add a protein powder that has a variety of nutrients to complement the smoothie like Love and Peas (made with yellow pea protein, beans protein, antioxidants from pomegranate, berries, grape seed extract, rice bran, bamboo fiber and Stevia as sweetener. Blend it and serve. Because it is in a liquid form, it is rapidly absorbed, easy to drink and delicious tasting. Snack and lunchtime: Use natural sources of drinks. I personally encourage my children to drink water. Water is an essential nutrient their

bodies need. No added sugars are necessary. Some studies show that a mere 2% drop in body water can trigger problems like fuzzy short-term memory and trouble with basic math. Organic yogurt with chia seeds sprinkled on top and their favorite chopped fruit. An avocado sandwich, you can mix the chia seeds in it too for a complete little meal. Fish or chicken fingers sautéed in coconut oil are delicious and can be made the night before. Try to add vegetables to their lunch, but don’t stress out so much if they don’t want them, you can make up later at home. I always include them to add color and eventually they eat them, especially carrots, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. Research also shows the importance of supplements for children. Minerals and vitamins are necessary for growth and tissue repair, immune strength and healthy digestive system. I like Sunshine Heroes MultiVitamin and Mineral, Super Omega 3 Chewables in a delicious fish shape, Calcium plus Vitamin D, Elderberry Immune and Probiotic Power. These formulas contain a proprietary blend of whole foods, fruit juice concentrates and micronutrients, supplying health-protective antioxidants and phytochemical nutrients.

Truth or Consequences Ten Years After

By Doug Arrowsmith     “What we need in the United States is not division; What we need in the United States is not hatred; What we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world.”        Shortly after he received the news that Martin Luther King had been assassinated, Bobby Kennedy approached a waiting crowd at a campaign stop and delivered the horrible news in the most eloquent way possible.  His words resonated and were embraced by a nervous and grieving nation.  Not long after that speech someone shot him in the head.  And so it goes.  Over and over again until we’re left wondering if we even deserve another chance.      We had another shot at redemption on September 12th 2001.  The day after the world

ended. We could see through the veil of smoke and tears that nothing would ever be the same again.  We could see that we had been rocked to our very core and that we had been fundamentally changed.  We embraced more freely  and we let the tears flow.  I can barely remember what I did yesterday but I remember that awful day and the week that followed like it just happened.  I can also remember hanging my head in sorrow when I realized we were about to squander our chance to find those better angels that lived in all of us.  We had a chance to prove to the world, friend and foe alike, that we were better then we seemed.  That we were truly a blessed and united nation.  That we were capable of living up to our own standards.  We blew it of course.  We held on for as long as we could and then we flew off the deep end like we always do.      So, here we are.  Ten Years later and still standing.  Barely.  Not only are we still at war with phantoms, but we’re also at war with each other.  We’ve killed the bogeyman responsible for those terrible days and so we search amongst ourselves for imaginary traitors and thieves.  We see enemies in every face and embrace our own paranoia with pride and determination.  We have lunatics masquerading as heroes and patriots who promise us a brighter future using code words for hate and fear and demagoguery.  We place hope in catch phrases

business community to foster better educational and career awareness among the students. 2) To continue to focus on student achievement and academic excellence through raising students test scores. 3) Continue reviewing courses to assure that students are being taught the most relevant courses in the best way. 4) Assure that those students who want to go on to college are ready for the college curriculum. In addition to expanding the computer lab to accommodate an entire class the school has also made strides in adapting new technology, for example the iPad. Last year the school started a small program with a few iPads in the classroom, and found it so successful


Cont. From Cover began to wonder what we could do to support our country, to support the families of victims, to support the city of New York and Washington D.C., to support one another, and to support our troops in what was surely an upcoming battle. This was not only the “good” that came out of this day, but it was a reassurance that our nation’s foundations are still honored over 200 years after our Declaration of Independence. In a moment where our nation was in one of it’s darkest hours, those that had the ability to take action (all of us) saw it only as their “responsibility” to take action. We did whatever we could to support the continued freedoms and ideals of the United States of America. America once again needed her people to raise her flag and stand strong, and we did. We gave blood. We gave time and attention. We helped with cleanup efforts. We gave kind words and support. We gave our all. It was our job. So, this Sunday will mark ten years since the September 11th terrorist attacks and our job is nowhere near done. It shouldn’t ever be. There are countless ways to give and honor those lost on that day


Cont. From Cover does not have to drive away from the road to find a sale.” Community selling points will be marked in each town, to alert bargain seekers. For somebody interested in having a sale, the best thing to do is to contact Scott Miller at 307-5887, or preferably through an e-mail address that’s been set up for the event at Anyone seeking information about the sales should also contact the same e-mail. Last year, Miller says there were about “75 to 100 garage sales. Seeing as how well

that this year they purchased 22 iPads. “We found they were valuable; they’re great for classroom instruction,” says Mr. Ward. Teachers can sign up for the iPads, check them out, and hand them to the students for an in-class assignment. The school also developed a new attendance policy. They established maximum number of days a student can miss without facing a penalty. Go over that limit and a committee will connive to evaluate the reasons for the absences; a student who was legitimately sick would likely not be in trouble. But a student found to be skipping school would face some type of discipline. According to Mr. Ward, “we truly believe that being here is important,” adding that, “parents need to realize that school is important.” He points out that students who develop a casual attitude

about school often develop an equally casual attitude about work and don’t succeed. Among other changes made this year Mr. Ward says, “We tightened up our policies on eligibility for participating in athletics and extra curricular activities,” meaning students wishing to play on a team or other activities, will have to perform well academically. The requirements will be made clear to students, “consequences for mistakes will be clearly spelled out,” he adds. One more change for the year involves and increased awareness of bullying. Although the problem is not considered severe in ECS, Mr. Ward says, “more if it happens than we realize.” The school has signed on with a program called OLWEUS; a state sponsored bullying protection program, “we want the kids to feel that this is a safe place to be.”

and to show pride in being an American. How will you do it? Here are a few options in case you’re still looking for ways to help. Give Back: The American Red Cross is always in need of blood donors and Disaster Action Team Volunteers. In the wake of the numerous weatherrelated disasters suffered thus far in 2011, the need is even greater. Visit the Southwestern New York Chapter of the American Red Cross online at for a list of locations to give blood and the latest relief efforts and volunteer opportunities. Participate: Several area communities will host memorial services. Even your attendance makes a difference, so if you’re not able to volunteer service or give blood, attend a service and observe a few moments of silence honoring those that were lost on this tragic day. On Friday September 9th a series of services and activities will begin in Olean, NY honoring the anniversary of the attacks. The 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive will kick off the events at the Olean Center Mall from 10am until 6 pm, giving away commemorative t-shirts to the first 300 donors. On Saturday, The First Responders Fair will open from 1-5pm at Bradner Stadium featuring a “carnivallike” atmosphere for the whole family. Fire departments from around the county will be

present putting on equipment and practice demonstrations and local recruiters will also be present. On Sunday, September 11th, a remembrance ceremony will take places both at Olean High School and at Bradner Stadium. The school’s program begins at 2 o’clock and features a performance by the Olean High School Orchestra and an unveiling of a special 9/11 Memorial sculpture. From the school there will be a Walk of Remembrance over to Bradner Stadium for a final remembrance ceremony. Mayor Witte of Olean and Senator Cathy Young are both expected to speak during the ceremony, which will end with a 21-Gun Salute. Honor: It doesn’t have to be public. Take a few moments on your own and reflect on everything being an American has allowed you to do and have. Realize your freedoms and rights as a citizen in the United States. Think about all that was ripped away from the victims of these terrible attacks and memorialize them in your own way, whether it is in words, artistic expression or in thought. Everything makes a difference, even personal reflection. September 11, 2001 changed everything for Americans. Take a moment on this ten-year anniversary and show your support in this great nation. You have the ability…now make it your responsibility.

things went last year, this year there should be a minimum of 100 sales.” Miller would like to thank Chuck Struble of Hinsdale and the Cattaraugus County Tourism Department, who are also fielding “many inquiries” about the date. “This is a grassroots effort we’re trying to put together in our spare time, an event which will highlight some of Cattaraugus County, while helping some of the residents and businesses along Route 16.” He notes that every town and village along the road, including the City of Olean, have been invited to participate. As for the chicken barbecue component, Miller notes that fire departments, American legions, and VFWs along the way are being encouraged

to hold their barbecues on September 17th, “so as to make some money for their coffers.” A few private barbecue stands will also be open that day. The chicken barbecues will be marked by signs. At the Cattaraugus County Tourism Department, Deb Opferbeck called last year’s initial yard sale event a “phenomenal success. People keep calling to find out when it is (this year),” and for details about the day. She notes that outing the event together has been a challenge for the handful of organizers, so they (the Route 16 Community Corridor Partnership) are always looking for help with any of their projects, to promote the Route 16 businesses and tourism.”
