Tonawanda News — How nice that would be. There is a bit of food for thought in the comment the bishop made at the recent rally in support of a tax credit bill (which, by the way, was not included in the state budget).
The bishop said: “We feel as if Gov. Cuomo is kicking Catholic school children to the curb.”
To paraphrase, parents at St. Francis School feel as if the bishop is kicking their children to the curb.
Condolences go out to the family of Bob Moreland, who died recently and served the Kenmore Volunteer Fire Department for 59 years. He accomplished so much in the community including through the American Legion and as coordinator for Camp Good Days and Charlie’s Kids. Age did not deter his love of baseball and he influenced so many Little League players, teaching them to play fairly and have fun. He’ll be missed.
As a kid, it seemed everyone in the neighborhood knew twins Bill and Peter Meagher, (but we all pronounced the last name, Mahar.) It wasn’t until years later that we learned the right spelling. Bill died this past week, having spread his humor and light-heartedness with all. He helped at the Boy’s Club for many years and was a basketball referee at the Eldredge Cub. Condolences to his family.Contact Community News Editor Barbara Tucker at firstname.lastname@example.org or 693-1000 ext. 4110.
