Is anyone surprised that Willis McGahee didn't show up for mini-camp in Baltimore? A leopard doesn't change it's spots, especially in a city with so many more women to impregnate.
Am I the only one who is disgusted with the Barnes Firm? When they (repeatedly) play the commercial espousing the fact that they have won their clients over $100 million dollars in personal injury claims, including $50 million from auto claims, they are bragging about how high they have jacked up your insurance rates. Yes, you and I paid that $100 million.
How about Peter Calieri's commitment to Lockport? I remember when he took the initiative several years ago and made his wonderful Village Eatery restaurant smoke-free. Now, he has closed the deal to make the former Davison Road Inn into a banquet hall, and has committed to opening a bar/restaurant/night club in the Ulrich City Center.
Speaking of investing in your community, major kudos to Ed & Diane Finkbeiner of Lewiston. The Finkbeiners are planning to construct a multimillion dollar luxury hotel with a spa and penthouse views of the Niagara River. A major endeavor indeed, best of luck!
Can there be a more disgusting breach of trust than Hugh Messer? Messer, a Niagara County Sheriff, was working as the school resource officer in Niagara-Wheatfield High School when he decided it was okay to have sex with a 16 year-old student, while on assignment. Thankfully he resigned from the department. I'll be looking for his name on the Sex Offender Registry.
The Niagara County Legislature is moving forward with plans to sell the Davison Road complex to Christian Academy of Western New York. Do we need to sell this large piece of land to an organization that is going to keep it off the tax rolls?
The lack of a public statement from State Supreme Court Justice Amy Fricano is appalling. Driving 60+ miles per hour in a heavily populated school zone, whether under the influence of any substance or not, must not be tolerated. If her silence is at the advice of counsel, I hope that when this issue is resolved, Mrs. Fricano has the courage to address the public.
Kudos to Kellogg Co., the world’s largest cereal maker. Kellogg plans to increase the nutritional value of cereals and snacks it markets to children. The company also said it will modify it's TV, radio, print & Web site ads that reach audiences at least half of whom are under age 12. If only the tobacco companies would follow suit.
