Where Should Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Locate?

Where Should Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Locate?

According to a report in the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, the popular Dinosaur Bar-B-Que chain restaurant has plans to move into the Buffalo market.

Dinosaur, which started in Syracuse in 1988 and has been a downtown Rochester institution since its opening in 1998, is expanding its presence in the greater New York City metropolitan market, and may have designs on Buffalo, too.

If Dinosaur were to open just one restaurant in Western New York, where do you think it should be? Some currently idle restaurant buidling? A rehab to one of one of the city's architectural gems? A new build in a suburban mall?

A Letter from Tiny Paws Big Hearts Rescue Inc.

 

Dear Community Supporter,


I am contacting you on behalf of Tiny Paws Big Hearts Rescue Inc. to request your support for our 2012 fundraising efforts.

Tiny Paws Big Hearts Rescue is a nonprofit dog rescue located in Tonawanda, N.Y.

 Our mission:  To rescue small breed dogs, primarily from puppymills, provide complete veterinary care (including spay/ neuter and all vaccinations), rehabilitation, and adoption into approved, forever homes.

We do not have a free standing shelter. We have a small group of experienced foster homes that provide our rescue dogs with a loving home life prior to adoption. All funds raised are directly used to provide vet care, good nutrition and grooming for our dogs.

Legislator Rath Partners with Schools to Honor Veterans on Valentine's Day

Erie County Legislator Edward A. Rath, III visited St. Gregory the Great School and Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary School recently to thank the students for participating in his Valentines for Veterans program. A tremendous number of cards were created.

 “This is a great program that partners students and veterans for the Valentines holiday. The students demonstrated their distinct understanding of what our veterans did for us and our country, and it is only appropriate that we show our appreciation year round,” Legislator Rath said. “The students did an outstanding job creating heartfelt cards and messages.”
