In a society that often favors online shopping and big box stores, Jodi Scanlan has managed to accomplish something that few entrepreneurs can do. Through several years of sharing her unique, handcrafted goods at craft and vendor shows, Scanlan created such a large following that opening a brick-and-mortar store was the next logical step. It has proven to be a very successful one, at that.

Nestled at the edge of the Allegheny National Forest in the City of Bradford, is a fascinating museum honoring Marilyn Horne, a small-town girl who became an internationally acclaimed opera star.

Born to Bentz Horne and Berniece Hokanson Horne, both natives of Bradford, this legendary star once performed in concerts staged in Bradford’s town square. From this humble beginning, she became a main stay of the Metropolitan Opera and appeared in virtually every major opera company in the world.

Matt Canale has worked with wood for as long as he can remember. Like with most kids at a young age, he found joy in the simplest of things - swinging a hammer and pounding nails into a board. But while most adolescents leave that passion at a hammer and nail, Canale’s passion for woodworking grew. Graduating from his grandfather’s basement to helping his handyman father around their house, he ultimately found a career path in it.

The 2016/17 U.S. Air Force Snocross National returns to Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino in Salamanca, NY, February 3-4. For years, crowds have been treated to the sights, sounds and smells (race fuel!) of this exciting event, so let’s fill you in on the back story ...

As one may notice, the majority of focal points in this publication tend to revolve around the ski and snowboard culture, that is so passionately supported by Ellicottville and its surrounding communities. We’d be remiss however, not to spotlight some of the other exciting happenings occurring just outside the village, which draw visitors into our communities from near and far.  One of said activities, is the 2016/17 U.S.

It’s easy to see why Ellicottville is such a fun place to come and play. Two resorts, a town alive with food and drink, and plenty of people you can share the stoke with. If you’re a seasonal (or even regular) visitor to 14731, you understand that this place - not just Ellicottville, but the entire region - thrives on being outside. Just a short drive over Chapel Hill or down Route 417 lies an entire area you may not know existed. These Enchanted Mountains contain much more than machine groomed packed powder, and we’re encouraging you to get out of your comfort zone and explore.

Flash sales at big box stores. Christmas dinner planning. Last minute shopping. Too often, society attempts to reinforce this notion that Christmas revolves strictly around the giving and receiving of material possessions. We live in a consumer world, where drones deliver packages to you that you ordered from your cell phone. It’s easy to get lost in the noise. But this holiday season, the crew at SNOWED-IN implores you to think about the concept of giving a little differently. As a proud alumnus of St. Bonaventure University, I’m taking advantage of this platform to tell you about an incredible, admirable endeavor of the University - The Warming House.

It’s easy to get lost in the noise of the holiday season.
