Page 2 WELLSVILLE DAILY REPORTER, WELLSVILLE, NEW YORK Monday. March 5. 1973 Bolivar citizens protest proposed zoning plan By DAN BABco*ck BOLIVAR Many Bolivar residents are concerned over the proposed zoning ordinance for the Village of Bolivar as proposed by Kendree and Shepherd Planning Consultants, Jamestown. Signs have been placed in downtown merchants' windows to alert residents to the fact that there is an ordinance, and, as far as concerned residents are concerned, there is time to fight it. A major concern of those opposed to the ordinance is that Bolivar is too small a community to warrant a toning ordinance of soch proportions.

The document is 52 pages long. An informational meeting on the zoning ordinance will be held at Bolivar Central School at 7:30 p.m. March 15. Only seven members of the public attended the last informational meeting Feb. 15.

It is the understanding of concerned citizens that there will be no opportunity to vote on the proposal. Bill Jones, publisher of the "Moneysaver," said last week, "As we understand it. if the Planning Committee approves the Zoning Ordinance and presents it to the Bolivar Village Board and they pass it it will be on the books 10 days after it is advertised in a legal notice." Thomas Slavin. owner of the Bolivar Western Auto, said, "As far as Bolivar is concerned, a blanket policy is no good. Bolivar is just not that big.

Bolivar needs ordinances, not a blanket policy." Chuck Trueblood, of the Bolivar Charbroil, said he was against it because it would "create problems." March 2 a petition was started to oppose the zoning ordinance. It says, "We, the undersigned, residents, or non-resident real property owners in the Village of Bolivar, hereby register our disapproval of the proposed zoning ordinance for the Village of Bolivar, as contained in proposal of Kendree and Shepherd Planning Committee, January 1973. "We request that the Planning Committee for the Village of Bolivar reject such proposal, or in the alternative submit the Hospital notes JONES MEMORIAL Census: Adults 64, Babies 3 Operations 2 Admissions Mrs. Clifford Clark, Bolivar Cynthia Armstrong, Scio Harvey Decker, Truax Rd.

Upstate Dem cites budget ELMIRA, (UPI) An Upstate Democrat has conceded that the chances of Congress loosening the hold President Nixon has on the 1973 federal pursestrings are "shaky," so he's looking forward to the 1974 budget. Rep. Samuel S. Stratton Sunday night criticized the unspent millions for domestic programs in the 1973 budget and predicted the Democratically controlled 93rd Congress would "win its impending showdown over the priorities of the fiscal 1974 budget sometime this fall." "I think our prospects for winning the fight over the impounding of unspent funds from the 1973 budget are shaky," the Amsterdam Democrat told a Chemung County Democratic dinner.

"But the battle for the shape of the 1974 budget is really what counts, and if Congress can manage to stay within the present $269 billion ceiling I think we'll have the largest say in deciding where those funds are going to be spent." Stratton said he thought the American people backed Nixon "in holding the line on spending, cutting out waste, and no more taxes." But he added he thought the voters wanted continued "programs designed to help rebuild and revitalize our cities, build new homes, (and) improve the quality of education." "On that issue, we in Congress are a whole lot closer to the people than is the President," Stratton said. proposal to the residents of Bolivar and non-residents of Bolivar owners on referendum for an advisory opinion." Ken Patterson, of Lucky Discount Meat Market, said Friday there was a considerable line of village residents at his store waiting to sign the petition. Regarding the ordinance, Mr. Patterson said, "I don't think very much of it. We're not a big city the population doesn't warrant it.

There is no danger of industry coming in here. "People are asleep, and if they don't come to the meeting they are in danger. If they put it to the voting public and more than half accept it then I'll accept it. That's what's wrong with the system today we have no say. We have laws we don't really need.

"We're trying to get a doctor and dentist to come to town, and if they can't have a business of their own, they'll pass it up. "Our taxes would go up 10 to 15 percent at least with the help needed to enforce the ordinance." Al DeBenedictis, of Mid-Atlantic Appliances, said, "They've had a dog ordinance and a curfew and couldn't enforce them." William Scheiterle, employe of the Air Preheater Corp. in Wellsville, added, "At this time the village population does not have a say. I have found no one in favor of it. Mrs.

Shirley Colley, of Colley T.V., said, "It stinks. In a town of this size it's not necessary. It puts too many restrictions on what people want to do. The ones that are for it are the ones that don't have a business here in town." Chip Dean, also of Colley T.V., said that ordinances would accomplish the same thing as the zoning ordinance and that most people are against the zoning ordinance because of building restructions. George Bliss, attorney who helped the group of concerned citizens draw up the petition, termed the zoning ordinance "hogwash in a town of this size." General feeling in the Charbroil restaurant Friday was that Bolivar residents "would rather have 250 trailers in the village than a lot of empty houses," and that Bolivar would become a "glorified cemetery if zoning goes through." 4- to offer dog course CONCERNED CITIZENS These Bolivar residents and have put up signs around town to alert village are concerned about the far-reaching effects of the residents.

Instruction was given by Mrs. Keith Chappel, Perry, handler and dog obedience instructor.

This project is open to any boy or girl 9-19 years of age, with a dog at least nine months old. Youngsters and their dogs train together to achieve various levels of control. In addition to obedience work, some class time is spent on dog grooming, feeding and health care. The class develops a special relationship between the child and his dog. A trained dog is a source of pride and pleasure for the entire family.

It makes the dog happy and provides for his well being and safety. A series of 10 classes will be held one hour weekly with the child working with his dog at progressive levels of training. The first year beginner level, with all exercises done on leash, include heel, stand for examination, come when called, and remaining in place in sitting and downed positions. The second year graduate beginner level involves perfection of technique with some off leash work. The Allegany County" 4-H Division is offering this program with classes beginning in early April.

Upon successful completion, boys and girls with their dogs will have an opportunity to participate in the County Fair trials on July 20, and in the tri-county 4-H Dog Show to be held in Ellicottville August 18.
