About ten years ago, I took Jim Lorentz's hockey camp at the North Buffalo ice rink on Tacoma. Even at that time I remember thinking, "This place is in need of a few repairs," as the locker room lights flickered on and off. Those repairs are on the way, even if they're a little late, announced Senator Antoine Thompson's office.
The state will be sending $200,000 for repairs to the rink. Funds are to be allocated as follows:

I had to hold off on writing this. My grief was strong enough that thinking about the Bills game last night was too much. But now I think it's best to get it out, ya know, talk about it.
As we all know, the Patriots defeated the Bills 25-24 last night. It was another Monday Night Football disaster following on the heels of the Cowboys and Browns meltdowns. During the first 55 minutes or so, the Bills no-huddle offense worked efficiently and effectively while the defense made Brady and Moss look positively pedestrian. With 2 minutes and 10 seconds left, the Bills
