FAMILIAR SIGHT 2: Bill Holman has carried an image of this gate, a water level-control device in the Erie Canal at Pendleton, in his mind for more than 65 years. Holman and his fellow Big Ride pony leaders were treated to a nighttime dip in the canal here by their employer, Lockport-area farmer George Hise, in 1947. Holman says he never knew what, or where, the gate was until last month, when he took an impromptu tour of the canal around Lockport and recognized it instantly.
