"It's awesome to host a tournament,"
As we begin a New Year filled with the usual promises of weight-loss, exercise routines, new careers or whatever goals we all set for ourselves; it is prudent that we remain focused on old, unfinished business as well.
If not already obvious from the attached photograph, I am referring to 102 Johnson Park.
Unfortunately, and much to my own dismay, the very mention of this property seems to provoke a form of electronic Treats' Syndrome and if we possessed audible
"Habitat Buffalo is thrilled to have a new ReStore location in South Buffalo," said Dave Zablotny, Executive Director Habitat-Buffalo. "Our second ReStore will enhance the sustainable funding stream already in place with our store at 501 Amherst Street and will allow Habitat to continue to expand on the
Creation of a Special Zoning District--The Council adopted a resolution sponsored by North District Council Member Joseph Golombek, Jr. directing the City of Buffalo Planning Board and its staff to work with the City of Buffalo Department of Law to draft a zoning ordinance which would designate the Pan American District area as a special zoning district, thereby aiding in its preservation and improvement. The Pan
Mrs. Parks is the kind of art teacher that students love. She's famous at Kenmore West for providing a great mix of zany creativity and functional technique, and her latest project with her 3D Design students is a perfect example of that. She believes in building a student's awareness of their world, and that "It is important for our students to become more aware of their surroundings from many different aspects: reuse, thinking from a community-based mindset, and giving back. Every small stride helps the cause. The students began by exploring the assemblage
In an effort to tap into the community's needs and insight the Wisteria Charter School Initiative respectfully asks the public to complete surveys either online or in person. We are "casting a wide net" to reach anyone interested in enrolling their children in a Waldorf-inspired program or assisting with the creation of this charter school. If an individual does not have Internet access then they may fill out a survey form at the Masten Resource Center (home of the Better Schools,
Not sure what else to say... here are a couple initial comments?
PaulBuffalo: Maybe they'll be installed on a gigantic railing.
Https: Maybe they intend to paint them green as a low maintenance alternative to bushes and other greenery.
JM: Paint something on it so it looks like a flip book when you walk by. My guess is this is a measure to step up security after the Murders in Az. Pretty sad on so many levels,

Buffalo Powder Keg Festival has brought back some favorite sports and games from last year's festival and we are looking to add a few more niche items to the festival. The always exciting Broomball (street version) Tournament will headline the games with an expanded field of teams and a choice for competitive or social play. Also making its way back to the festival is the always contentious rivalry of our city guardians, which will take form in the 2nd Annual Buffalo Police vs. Fire games. The Police won by a narrow margin last year, but the
Its not easy, is it?
Recent history has turned Martin Luther King day into a day of service. Service certainly is a good thing, and it is part of Dr. King's legacy. He echoed the words of Jesus Christ clearly when he stated that "Anybody can be great, because everybody can serve." And we should serve, not only this coming weekend, but always.
Service, however, is the safe easy part of both Christ's teaching and King's. As the nation mourns Tuscon's tragedy, it may be time

Recently, QSR magazine and Pitney Bowes Business Insight conducted a survey of the top emerging restaurant markets in the country. The results of the survey consisted of ranking the top 40 cities for restaurant expansion in the year 2011. Not only was Buffalo among the cities listed, it just so happened to be at the top of its category.
The study broke the cities down into small-market, medium-market and large-market categories based

The Baldwin Building at 109 Genesee Street may be one of the smallest buildings on the Genesee Block, but it's no less important. It was designed by the prominent firm of Esenwein and Johnson who created many of Buffalo's most recognizable landmarks. Unfortunately, many modestly sized buildings with ornate classical detailing have been altered or modified as tastes changed, and the ornate flourishes became unfashionable. Genesee Gateway LLC, made up of CityView Properties and the Wendt Foundation, have brought new life to this architectural gem.
November-December's Amtrak Magazine includes a heartfelt summation of Buffalo's cultural climate. With a hat tip to Ani DiFranco and Tom Fontana, the article leads the reader down an intimate road with plenty of notable destinations found along the way. Of course it's the mission of an Amtrak writer to get as many people interested in destinations along the

The historic building was originally opened in 1926 as a movie theater. Every January, in honor of its humble beginnings, Shea's puts on the presentation of a silent film to "provide patrons with the opportunity to experience Shea's as patrons did during the theatre's early days," said Shea's President Tony Conte. The upcoming presentation will feature the 1925 film "The Lost
A great series was on TV in the fall that a lot of Buffalonians might have an interest in watching. It flew under the radar for most TV viewers, but it was certainly a captivating, real example of how cities work. Buffalo has quite a bit in common with Newark, New Jersey, otherwise known as "Brick City." It's been plagued by high crime rates, little investment, and too many cronies. Most importantly though, this city has a dynamic mayor by the name of Cory Booker.
