Grisanti Sponsored “Sewage Pollution Right To Know Act” Signed By Governor

Senator Mark Grisanti (R-60) today announced that Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed the “Sewage Pollution Right To Know Act” which passed the Senate in June.  This Bill which Grisanti introduced amends the environmental conservation law to establish a procedure for the operator of any sewage treatment plant to notify the public of all raw sewage overflows within 24 hours. The bill spells out all the information that must be reported to the New York State Department of Health and the Department of Environmental Conservation including when, where and how much has been spilled.   The purpose of this legislation is to provide valuable information to the public about spills in a timely manner and in an effective way.

First Class Bass Charters Fishing Report: Eastern Basin Lake Erie

First Class Bass Charters Fishing Report: Eastern Basin Lake Erie

Water Temp: 76 degrees

We are entering into the dog days of Summer.  The fishing stays steady in the river current and in the deepest water with structure you can locate. This is the key to fishing success.

SMALLMOUTH bass action is doing well.  Good fish are being caught all over the lake.  The head of the river is still hot.  The Round House to the Old Pier on the Canadian side is doing well.  Seneca Shoals is still producing some bigger smallies. The 3 way rig with a 1 1/2 to 2 " crawfish is hard to beat at this time of the year.

WALLEYE fishing has been outstanding on most days out.  The Buffalo Harbor still has a good school of medium to just keeper fish.  Areas from the departure buoys to Seneca Shoals has seen a large group of Walleye.  Look for fish to be in 40 feet plus water. There are Rumors that outer Meyer"s Reef is holding some bigger fish.

It's Wild About the Fair this year with new Wild Exhibits;

My "Brag" Blog

My "Brag" Blog

In case you wondered how I did with my Creative Arts entries....here are the results....I guess you could say I did OK this year.

As you walk into the Creative Arts Building you will see my sweatshirt on display.  It got a red ribbon.  That is not bad.  There were some great entries along with mine.  It is the white one that has Wild About The Fair on it!!!

I did not get anything on my ornament or gift tag.  I was really disappointed that my ornament of my cat Rocky did not win.  I really thought it was pretty creative!! Oh well, better luck next year.

BUT I did VERY WELL with my violets.  I entered four, and all four won a ribbon.  The totals...2 blues and 2 reds.....AND the one blue also got the Evans Garden Club Award for best violet!!  That is really prestigious and I am so proud of them. 

So all in all, I am pretty satisified.  The flowers really did me proud. 

Fair "Food of the Day".....Angelo's

Fair "Food of the Day".....Angelo's

For my first pick of fair food of the day, I have decided to pick a long time favorite of the fair, Angelo's.  If you have never had a pastry from their booth, you have not lived!!!  All I can say about them is that they are to "die for".  You can pick the raspberry pretzel, the brownie, the cannoli, of any one of the other pastries they offer and they will NEVER disappoint you.  The pastries are baked fresh everyday and are sure to please.

This year the stand by Slade Park is a new trailer.  It is larger and much higher than the previous booth, but offers those same great standard pastries that we have come to love and expect.

They also offer coffee for $1.25 and water and pop too!!  So if you are in the mood for some great "sweet stuff", stop at any one of the Angelo's stands on the fairgrounds.  Have a pastry and a cup of coffee and watch all the fairgoers go by!
