Tonawanda News — Cameras
Good for Jenna Koch of the Tonawanda City Council for digging into the background of the company the city was planning to use for its red light cameras. She and Jay Hall certainly have the city’s best interests at heart and are not afraid to speak out. Go Jenna!
An email from a reader says it all “Can’t believe that our tiny City of Tonawanda is considering red light cameras ... Big Brother is alive and well!”
The “yarners” are at it again. These are the wonderful women in the Twin Cities who are again seeking yarn for their projects that range from cancer hats to comfort blankets and more. So as you start to clean out closets in anticipation of spring, check to see if you have any yarn you’d like to donate. It can be dropped off at the News or if you need someone to pick it up, call or email me and someone will be around. This is such a good cause, consider cleaning out your closet and helping.
Carol Carney said she read with interest this column referring to Girl Scouts.
“We had a wonderful Senior Girl Scout leader, Flo Taylor,” Carol wrote. “She had a senior high group which she took on many trips. I remember the ones to Washington DC and New York City. We met with other Girl Scout groups and even with political leaders while we were there. We toured the White House and even saw paper money being made. We were in the Capital when Alaska was voted into being a state. As part of this group we had activities with the Explorer Post that met at Gratwick School where we also met. I met my husband through this association and we just celebrated our 50th anniversary. (Flo) even nominated me for Ideal Girl — a contest run by The News. Flo was a wonderful leader and friend who helped shape the lives of many girls.”
