There is a well known saying … the things legends are made of. This holds true for so many things in life, but in music it describes the Coasters.  Now in their sixth decade of making music and touring, I don’t think anyone could argue that.

NEW YORK’S AMISH TRAIL

October 4, 2016

Arthur J. Roscoe first came to Allegany State Park in 1925 after graduating from Syracuse University. In 1930 he got a permanent job as a Park Forester. In 1956 he was promoted to Assistant Regional Director. He held that position until he retired in 1968. During his time at the Park, Mr. Roscoe was instrumental in the development of skiing activities at the State Park and as a result, in 1979, he was honored by the Park when it dedicated the cross country ski trail system in his honor.

Normally, I don’t inject myself into storylines, but with this particular article I feel compelled to make an exception.  My father, Nelson Hegeman, was an avid skier in his youth.  He instructed downhill skiing at Glenwood Acres and Kissing Bridge and later, after relocating to Cattaraugus County, spent many hours each winter x-country skiing at Allegany State Park where he was able to bask in the solitude and serenity of the park in all of its snow-covered glory.  I was about two and a half years old when I was first introduced to skiing; my first memory of being on s

The unmistakable voice of Gary Puckett, formerly of Gary Puckett and The Union Gap, will fill the air at The Bears Den at the Seneca Niagara Casino on Friday, Jan. 8 at 8pm. Talking with him recently about his career, it led him to recall some of the memories that stand out vividly in his mind. Puckett, who considers himself a political junkie, went on to tell me about the day he spoke to President Nixon one-on-one on the White House lawn.

The group disbanded in 1970 and Puckett went his own way and started a solo career.

With December upon us, that means snow can happen at any time! We are at the top of the list for counties who receive the maximum snowfall in NY State. It's no wonder we know how to have fun in the snow! How does cascading over the snow on a trail-dominating snowmobile sound? Or exploring the back woods, breaking your own trails on your snowshoes? You can do all that right here, and we’re sure you’ll soon warm up to winter with all the fun activities available right in our backyard.

Do you tire of winter before it even begins? Or how about just after the holidays? Think that there is nothing to do when it's cold outside besides sit under a blanket and try to keep warm? That's not what we think here in Cattaraugus County, the Enchanted Mountains of Western New York. We have many reasons to love winter and the other three seasons of the year.

Most folks generally think of Allegany State Park as a summer destination; a place to hike around for a few hours or maybe a good place to haul the kayaks up to. What they fail to realize is that the park offers a ton of great activities all year round.

As Western New Yorkers, we’re no strangers to winter. Everyone who has lived here for more than a year knows you’re at least locked in for 5 months of snow and cold, maybe up to 7 on an El Nino year. It is an immutable fact. However, what defines our region is the way we’ve adapted to it. Normal people see winter as an excuse to stay indoors, a sort of carte blanche to fully embrace the lazier half of their nature. To be fair, there’s nothing wrong with sweatpants, hot cocoa, electric blankets and Netflix.

From the beautiful landscape of the Allegheny Mountains and the Allegheny River to the city’s exciting gaming facilities, there is no lack of education, entertainment, and enjoyment in Salamanca. A unique cultural experience is sure to await you ... all that’s left to do is plan your visit! 

Known as the “Gateway to Allegany State Park,” the city of Salamanca is located on the reservation of the Seneca Nation of Indians, the largest tribe of the Iroquois Confederacy of Nations. Salamanca is the only city in the United States to lie almost entirely on a Native American Reservation; however, Salamanca’s rich history encompasses so much more than this geographic distinction.

Iconic singer/songwriter Gordon Lightfoot will take the stage for one show on Saturday, Nov. 7 at Seneca Niagara Casino. 

Iconic singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot will take the stage for one show on Saturday, Nov. 7 at Seneca Niagara Casino. This is one of those shows that should be tagged “a must see” for anyone who loves music … just good music with thought provoking lyrics and soothing melodies to go along with them.

I had the pleasure of talking with Lightfoot from his home in Toronto and found him very easy to talk to and told him so, to which he laughed and replied, “Well, it gives me a chance to get things off my chest.”
