Buffalo, a city that has lost much of its population over the last few years should try to find simpler ways to attract people. Not simply renters, who are transient, temporary dwellers, but actual property buyers, house owners; permanent dwellers. When I first moved to the city of Buffalo in '99 as one of the many renters, I never thought I would love it here so much that I would want to live here for the rest of my life. But my heart can't see being happier anywhere else. Lots of single people, like my former

Members of the local bird-watching community say the UB "falcon-cam" is important because the Audubon Society camera that was installed in Statler Tower's falcon nest went dark last month.

This spring we will focus on cleaning up the winter trash and getting graffiti off of the
If done properly, this would certainly help a district that has never been able to establish much of an identity. At the same time, it plays on the importance (or tragedy depending on how you look at it) of an event that could have done so much more for our city if it had not been blemished by such tragedy. The zoning legislation,
The Sabres, the #3 seed in the Eastern Conference, play a best-of-seven series against the #6 seed Boston Bruins. While the Sabres are favorites in the series, Las Vegas has them as the least favorite higher seeded team of any of the 8 playoff matchups. Perhaps

"I proposed to fill the Media room with thousands of small black bags hung from individual filaments at different heights from a foot above ground level toward the ceiling. In every bag would be the names of the war dead, from the present wars to past wars. The bags are metaphor for the life unlived," said Perrone of his exhibit.
Ever notice how people often look like their pets? The tall, skinny couple with the Greyhounds? The stocky guy with the English Bulldog? The stylish lady with the well-groomed Bishon Frise? Unfortunately, as people in our society have gotten heavier and started to suffer the associated health effects, so have pets. Veterinarians know this, and that's why the American Veterinary Medical Association has designated the theme of this year's National Pet Week as "People and Pets Healthy
