WILLIAMSVILLE, NY -- Animal rights activists say it's a moral outrage. Preservationists say it's an integral component of the village's historic fabric. It's all about a fence.

Click here Two On Your Side's recent report on Williamsville's "pointed" debate over the cememtery fence.

Next week, representatives of the Williamsville Cemetery, Animal Allies of WNY, International Chimney Corp. and the SPCA have scheduled a press conference next week to unveil their solution for protecting the beloved wildlife of Williamsville while maintaining the historic integrity of the fence at the Williamsville Cemetery.

I have been going to Mary Queen of Angels for seven years. Over the years at Mary Queen of Angels, the whole school is basically a second family to me.

My favorite activities are dancing, yoga, playing on the playground and sports. MQA is my favorite school that I have ever gone to!

Mary Queen of Angels is a family and faith-centered environment where I can learn something new every day.

 

Could "Ungrowth" Be Healthy for WNY?

Could "Ungrowth" Be Healthy for WNY?

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The U.S. Census Bureau recently released results of the 2010 census for New York, and the numbers show that population in all eight Western New York counties continues to decline. The City of Buffalo lost 10.7% of its population since the 2000 census, down to 261,310. Erie County’s population (919,040) is down 3.3%.

Local media unanimously reported this decline in population as a negative. (See the complete WGRZ report here.) Erie County Executive Chris Collins has said before: "We must grow or die."

But is the news all that bad?
