H2Option Dual-Flush System
Save water without sacrificing performance with American Standard’s H2Option toilet, featuring patent-pending siphonic action technology that uses less water, eliminates more bulk, and is quiet. Controlled by a dual-flush actuator on the top of the tank, the H2Option system features a 1-gallon-per-flush “light” flush for liquids and a 1.6 gpf “heavy” flush for solids. The dual flush allows the H2Option to use an average of 25 percent less water than a conventional 1.6 gpf single-flush toilet. Additionally, H2Options’s powerful siphonic action technology led to it receiving the highest MaP (Maximum Performance) rating, handling 1,000 grams of solid waste in a single “heavy” flush while the “light” flush received an impressive 400 gram rating. This means you can count on your H2Option toilet for dependable one-flush performance.
H2Option toilets feature a pressurized rim. Water is fed into the rim chamber from the tank, trapping air inside and thus pressurizing the chamber. The pressurized water is discharged from a series of specially configured rim holes to completely scour and power-wash the bowl.
In addition to water entering the bowl through the rim, water is also dispersed directly into the bowl through a bowl jet. With the jetted siphonic bowl of the H2Option system, the siphon is initiated with the push of the jet while the pull from the siphon evacuates the contents of the bowl. The siphon-jet action also allows the water level to be maintained throughout the entire flush, allowing for a cleaner bowl and flush.
American Standard’s Speed Connect system on H2Options toilets is a user-friendly system that cuts installation time by 30 percent. It consists of pre-assembled and factory-installed bolts and grommets, which eliminates loose parts and reduces connection time.
Treated inside and out, this toilet features a permanent EverClean surface. This system incorporates a patented silver-ion additive right into the material to protect it from mold, mildew, algae, and fungus that could cause deterioration or staining. You'll love how the mirror-like EverClean surface is easy to keep clean and stays cleaner longer, even after years of use.

Rock City State Forest
Rock City State Forest comprises 6,015 acres of forest land north of the City of Salamanca in Cattaraugus County, NY. To the north the site borders the Holimont and Holiday Valley Ski Areas, south of Ellicottville.
Natural History Interest
Stands of pine and spruce, which need direct sunlight to thrive, were planted in farm fields here during the 1930’s. They have since been managed by a series of thinnings to encourage the growth of native hardwood seedlings and a final harvest to allow the hardwoods to grow to maturity. Stands of hardwood forest at Rock City include Black Cherry, Yellow Birch, Sugar Maple, White Ash, Northern Red Oak, and White Oak. Most of the very large oak, ash and cherry trees are less than 100 years old. These fast-growing trees are harvested for high-quality wood for furniture.
As you enter Rock City State Forest, either from Little Valley to the west or Great Valley to the east, you go from a glacial sediment-filled valley up onto a ridge that was above the reach of the glacier. Soils here are termed “residual,” meaning that they are composed of “parent” material derived from the underlying bedrock, rather than from glacially deposited material. Therefore these ridge-top soils are millions of years old, as opposed to the newer 15,000 year-old soils in the surrounding valleys. Much of the forest lies at elevations exceeding 2,000 feet, providing a cool, moist habitat for Striped Maple or Moosewood, an unusual forest tree in our region.
The wooded highlands here are inhabited by a variety of vireos and warblers including Blue-headed and Red-eyed Vireo, Black-throated Blue Warbler, Black-throated Green Warbler, Ovenbird, American Redstart, Hooded Warbler, and Blackburnian Warbler. Ruffed Grouse, Hermit Thrush, Veery, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Brown Creeper, and Winter Wren are among other birds that breed here. Raptors include Red-tailed Hawk, Red-shouldered Hawk, Northern Goshawk, and Sharp-shinned Hawk. Common Raven have been seen as well.
The highlight of a trip to Rock City State Forest is Little Rock City, a natural outcrop of conglomerate rock in the unglaciated plateau. House-sized blocks of conglomerate jut out from the edge of the plateau and lie scattered down-slope amid the trees. It is a treat to explore the area during the summer as the alleys and passageways between rocks are cool and shady. Rocks are covered with a host of lower plants including mosses, lichens, and ferns, including Common Polypody in abundance. On the forest floor around the rocks are colonies of Stiff Clubmoss.
The early spring visitor may find blossoming Trailing Arbutus. Clintonia is very common and forms a dense groundcover in many places. Common Wood-sorrel, with its pink and white candy-striped blossoms, is also abundant. Blossoming Round-leaved Orchis welcomes the observant visitor in July, around the same time that ghostly white Indian Pipes are poking through the duff. Hobblebush, so called because of how it would trip up a horse walking through it, grows in low thickets among rocks scattered over the forest floor.
The area was the site of many projects carried out by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). CCC Camp Seneca operated in the area from 1935 to 1941. Corpsmen constructed roads, trails, and fire lanes, and planted hundreds of thousands of trees, including experimental plantations of walnut, Black Cherry, Tuliptree, oak, pine, and Norway Spruce. The stone-lined walkways to the barracks are still visible and a few have been restored. Norway Spruce seedlings planted along the walkways are over 60 years old now. Today Camp Seneca is an attractive recreational site with picnic tables and a hiking trail through hardwood forests and spruce and pine plantations. A pavilion with four tables, additional tables, and other improvements have been made. A loop hiking trail that starts and ends at Camp Seneca, and a trail also connects Camp Seneca and Little Rock City.
At Little Rock City there is a nature trail that loops through some of the more impressive rocks. There is a turn around and parking area, along with four single table picnic/camping sites with concrete slabs, and pavilion-type covers. There is currently a satellite-type outhouse. Several hiking and bike trails access the forest, which in turn intersect public and forest roads. In addition to the DEC-maintained trails, a portion of the Finger Lakes Trail/North Country Scenic Trail passes through the site.
How To Get There
Rock City State Forest is located north of Salamanca, NY; southwest of Ellicottville, NY; and southeast of Little Valley, NY.

The Hairstons is the extraordinary story of the largest family in America, the Hairston clan. With several thousand black and white members, the Hairstons share a complex and compelling history: divided in the time of slavery, they have come to embrace their past as one family.
The black family's story is most exceptional. It is the account of the rise of a remarkable people—the children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren of slaves—who took their rightful place in mainstream America.
In contrast, it has been the fate of the white family—once one of the wealthiest in America—to endure the decline and fall of the Old South, and to become an apparent metaphor for that demise. But the family's fall from grace is only part of the tale. Beneath the surface lay a hidden history—the history of slavery's curse and how that curse plagued slaveholders for generations.
For the past seven years, journalist Wiencek has listened raptly to the tales of hundreds of Hairston relatives, including the aging scions of both the white and black clans. He has crisscrossed the old plantation country in Virginia, North Carolina, and Mississippi to seek out the descendants of slaves. Visiting family reunions, interviewing family members, and exploring old plantations, Wiencek combs the far-reaching branches of the Hairston family tree to gather anecdotes from members about their ancestors and piece together a family history that involves the experiences of both plantation owners and their slaves. He expertly weaves the Hairstons' stories from all sides of historical events like slave emancipation, Reconstruction, school segregation, and lynching.
Paradoxically, Wiencek demonstrates that these families found that the way to come to terms with the past was to embrace it, and this lyrical work, a parable of redemption, may in the end serve as a vital contribution to our nation's attempt to undo the twisted historical legacy of the past.
The Hairstons traces the complex lineage and fascinating legacy of one of America's largest families. Henry Wiencek explores the lives of black and white members of the Hairston clan, as they have accepted each other as one family, easing the historical divide between the races, and reveals how Southern families have been affected by slavery's legacy and by the burden it continues to carry. Visiting family reunions, interviewing family members, and exploring old plantations, Wiencek combs the far-reaching branches of the Hairston family tree to gather anecdotes from members about their ancestors and piece together a family history that involves the experiences of both plantation owners and their slaves. He expertly weaves the Hairstons' stories from all sides of historical events like slave emancipation, Reconstruction, school segregation, and lynching. For example, from a black Hairston, Wiencek learns of a slave who burned rail fences to cook a hog for his starving comrades; white Hairstons record the incident as an act of slave indolence, a way to hinder the next day's work.
As Wiencek tells the stories of individual Hairstons, he uncovers the layers of a shared history at times painful, shameful, extraordinary, and joyful. Beautifully describing the land of the South and faithfully recounting what he has been told, Wiencek testifies that he "heard history not as a historian would write it but as a novelist would imagine it." The dynamic stories in The Hairstons are not solely one family's legacy but a record that reflects America's complicated process of healing and understanding the mark of slavery. --Amy Wan
