Tonawanda News — Kevin added a P.S.: “I had the misfortune of taking over the Tonawanda News downtown route from Rick Neuhaus (Squires owner) just as Urban Renewal took my customer base from 90-plus papers down to 40 plus within a single year. I was left to cry in my Zeffrey’s cherry phosphate. I should have ‘ran book’ myself.”
Now for fun trivia from George Soemann whom most of you know from Walker Bros. & Monroe Jewelers.
“Ponder this after Jan. 1,” George wrote. “Your column recently made reference to the idea that few, if any of us, can contemplate how big $16 trillion is. It is indeed difficult to understand such large numbers. I have problems trying to wrap my mind around billions, forget trillions. This little time chart does help: 1 million seconds equals 11 days, and 1 billion seconds equals 32 years.”
