Tonawanda News — But Sabres fans have been clamoring for Regier and, to a much lesser extent, Rolston, to be axed for a very long time now, and that happened Wednesday. That happened. I hate to use the phrase “addition by subtraction,” but we all know it’s probably at least somewhat true in this case.
I don’t expect miracles. Would I like to see some? Of course, but I’ll be content with progress. And “Back to the Future” jokes aside, I now have hope we might see some of that soon. There will be a lot more losing games. I don’t doubt it. But there is some excitement, as well.
Maybe it is a PR move, a gimmick. There is not, necessarily, anything wrong with a PR move. As long as that’s only the start.
I look forward to seeing who the new Sabres GM will be. I look forward to seeing if Nolan sticks around. For however long it lasts, I’m eager to watch the Sabres play again.
And you know what?
For now, I’m more than content with that.
One of our local TV stations has been hyping up its recent restaurant health-inspection reports, and given that it’s produced a searchable database for all of WNY, that’s really sort of cool.
But just a reminder — the Tonawanda News (and its sister papers, the Niagara Gazette and Lockport Union-Sun & Journal) publish restaurant health inspection reports for locations in Niagara County and our little corner of Erie County every Sunday on page 5C.
I’ve read my share of them. I’ll admit that I’ve declined to eat at a few places that consistently show up with “critical violations.” Given that non-critical violations can include things like not having all utensil handles facing in the same directions, I’m not nearly so judgmental on those.
The inspections rotate through the area. For example, I can tell you that this Sunday’s list includes sites in Niagara Falls and Wheatfield), but given that Tonawandans don’t exclusively eat out in the Tonawandas, that’s not a bad thing.
Just a little food for thought.Jill Keppeler is a writer for the Tonawanda News. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow her on Twitter @JillKeppeler.
