Statement From Congresswoman Kathy Hochul Honoring Martin Luther King Jr. Day

The following is a statement from Congresswoman Kathy Hochul in recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. Day:

“Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was the standard bearer for the civil rights movement and a voice for Americans that suffered through centuries of oppression.  Today, our nation has made significant strides in granting equal rights to every man and woman thanks to his contributions.

“We should all take this day to remember the sacrifices that Dr. King made and the cause to which he dedicated his life.  Our world is a better place because of Dr. King’s efforts and Americans truly live free today because of his leadership.

“Dr. King’s life will continue to inspire future generations of Americans.  His peaceful message of equal rights and justice for all, in the face of fierce and violent opposition, has solidified his place as one of America’s great leaders.”

NOCO Energy Corp. Supporting Baldwin-In-Buffalo Event

Event to Benefit Non-Profit Theatre Programming

BUFFALO, NY , January 16, 2011 – Local non-profit theatre company Road Less Traveled Productions (RLTP) today announced that NOCO Energy Corp. has generously committed to a supporting sponsorship of its upcoming benefit event, The Return of Alec Baldwin . The event will take place on Friday, January 27, 2012, at the University at Buffalo (UB) Center for The Arts (CFA). Proceeds from the event support RLTP programming, dedicated to Western New York (WNY) writer and theatre artist development.

At the event, film, stage, and screen star Alec Baldwin, together with an ensemble cast of 10 of WNY’s best actors, will perform live in a professionally directed reading of the Clifford Odets’ play The Big Knife . Baldwin will read the role of Charlie Castle, a Hollywood icon whose attempts to walk the line between integrity and celebrity place him in conflict with family and industry. As many as 1,500 patrons are expected to attend the benefit event. WBFO radio personality Bert Gambini will serve as Master of Ceremonies.

“As a locally owned and operated third-generation family company, we are proud to support organizations such as Road Less Traveled,” said James D. Newman, NOCO Energy Corp. President. “At NOCO we believe that by working together we are building a stronger community, for everyone’s benefit.”

RLTP Executive Director Scott Behrend thanked NOCO for its support of the upcoming benefit event and of WNY cultural growth. “I am humbled when I realize that businesses in our community see the connection between economic development and the arts and take the initiative to grow that connection,” said Behrend. “By supporting RLTP, NOCO is supporting the development of future opportunities for WNY writers and theatre artists of all ages to tell their stories, near and far, for years to come.”

Baldwin, a member of RLTP’s National Advisory Board, has appeared in Buffalo twice previously in support of RLTP programming. Tickets for the 8:00PM reading (doors open at 7:30PM) are $75 and $60, depending on seating locale. A limited number of $250 VIP tickets – which include cocktails, dinner, and priority seating in the first five rows for the reading – are available. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster by phone at (800) 745-3000, online at www.ticketmaster.com , and at ticketing o utlets, including at FYE Stores in the McKinley Mall and Chautauqua Mall, Shea’s Performing Arts Center, and Wal-Mart locations in Buffalo and Rochester.

For ticket inquiries, please contact the UB CFA Box Office at (716) 645-ARTS (2787) . The UB CFA Box Office accepts cash, VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and UB Campus Cash. The CFA is located on UB’s North Campus at 103 Center for the Arts, Buffalo, NY 14260.

Gingrich, Santorum, Perry Jockey To Unite Conservatives And Stop Romney

The remainig four candidates opposing Mitt Romney are looking for a way to derail his run.  They seem to be looking for some sort of divine intervention.

Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Rick Perry jockeyed Sunday to unite conservatives around their candidacies, but none said he was willing to step aside as two prominent Republicans predicted that Mitt Romney could clinch the GOP presidential nomination with a third straight win in Saturday’s South Carolina primary.

And Then There Were Five

Former Utah governor Jon Huntsman Jr., whose campaign for the Republican presidential nomination never took off, will quit the race Monday morning and endorse former Mas­sachusetts governor Mitt Romney, according to campaign officials with knowledge of the decision.

The rest of the field — former House speaker Newt Gingrich (Ga.), former senator Rick Santor­um (Pa.) and Texas Gov. Rick Perry — are appealing to the party’s most conservative voters. Rep. Ron Paul (Tex.) has his own constituency, which is expected to continue to deliver votes for him.

Today We Honor Martin Luther King Jr. Whose Courage Outweighed His Fear

Today is day we celebrate a man who saw the great need to lead everyone to realize that all Americans should be treated equally.  Martin Luther King Jr. did just that.  He led his people by his words and actions.  He was a hero who talked the talk and walked the walk.

 There are three ways in which King’s message is profoundly conservative and relevant in today’s world.

First, of course, concerns the question of race. King dreamed of a nation for his children where they would be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

Second, King believed in the critical importance of faith and moral character. He spoke of self-improvement and self-help in both moral and practical terms.

Third, King firmly embraced the core principles of America’s founding.  His dream was one “deeply rooted in the American dream,” as he said, and one that hearkened back to America’s founding principles.

Our Town Board Must Not Fear Public Scrutiny

What must happen to awaken Amherst from the hypnotic sleep the town has been put in?  The amount of information we are not receiving from our crippled Town Board is astounding.  It concerns: what deals we have made with other companies, how much money are we spending on outside attorneys and what we are paying for equipment and services.

When we need new equipment or services in our Waste Water Treatment Plant, the town has a method in place to get such equipment or services.  This method has become a bastardized joke.  Occasionally the original method is used but on other occasions certain companies get called and are chosen again and again, over and over.

During the two Monday night meetings per month the only time you can speak is for three minutes at the beginning of the meeting or for three minutes at the end of the meeting.  You can’t speak at both and you have to get to the meeting by 7:00 p.m. to sign in to speak or forever hold your piece.

If you really listen to a Town Board meeting you learn which Council members are pushing extra hard for the variety of developer’s projects.  Then, check what donations have been made to any Town Board member.  You will most likely find the names of these developers. Is this a coincidence?

The Town Board must open up the meetings to the public or their hopes for any future political career will be littered with a trail of proof of their being “yes man” or “yes woman,” which will help them to lose in the future.

Greek Yogurt a Boon for New York State


Chobani yogurt employs about 900 people in New York, at plants like this one in New Berlin, and plans to add 100 more.

Who would believe it?  Yogurt, a big deal in New York.  Not just yogurt, Greek style yogurt.  New York dairy farmers are facing a ‘once every two or three generations’ situation.

Greek yogurt has certainly been healthy for the economy in New York. Two of the leading brands, Chobani and Fage, have their main production plants in upstate New York and are expanding their operations.

Alpina Foods, the United States arm of a major South American dairy company, is building a $20 million plant in Batavia to make Greek yogurt topped with granola. And state economic development officials are said to be negotiating with another major food maker to set up a dairy products plant in the same area, creating the possibility for what one executive called a “yogurt cluster.”
