TUCKER: Don't fret over the trees

(Continued)

Tonawanda News — Okay, can anyone answer his question or have any ideas on the subject? Contact me by phone or email and I’ll gladly pass on the information.

Beauty spot

The house at 50 Grove St. in Tonawanda has been a work in progress for a couple of years. This summer, they restored the south side of the house including a beautiful wood panel. Coming from the Town, the beauty of the home in such a soft yellow with green trim and the magnificent look of this side of the house, gives you a glimpse of what it, and others on the street, must have looked like in the early 1900s. Can’t wait for the other side to be completed Hope there’ll be an open house and tour.

There’s beauty in my backyard, which certainly cannot compare with the Grove Street home, but we sure enjoy. A hibiscus plant, which was inadvertently cut down for two years, this year rose with a vengeance and has amazing white flowers, 12-inches across. A nearby hisbiscus with pink flowers cannot compare in size but also adds to the joy of a garden.

  • duvall, eric.jpg DUVALL: On reading and the lack thereof It was surprising to me a few weeks ago when a friend asked a group of us to estimate how many books we have each read over the last five years. The English teacher said 200 and he far and away led the pack. I was probably the median and my number was 20-25.

  • duvall, eric.jpg DUVALL: Conflict in Ukraine now a concern of global proportions It seems increasingly clear Ukrainian separatists, with the help from the Russian military, are responsible for the tragedy. They, of course, have denied it. They've also denied access to the crash site to international investigators seeking to recover the dead and determine what happened. That's not something the innocent party does.

From Canal Fest in the Tonawandas to the Allentown Art Festival and Italian Heritage Festival in Buffalo to the Erie County Fair in Hamburg, the Western New York area has no shortage of things to do with the family over the summer.
