Erie County Legislator Lynne Dixon will host two upcoming District Outreach Meetings to answer questions and discuss issues. Both meetings will be held on Friday, Sept. 13 with the first meeting in Lackawanna followed by an afternoon meeting in Hamburg.

I always gain so much valuable information about what’s going on in the community at these outreaches and appreciate everyone who attends to connect with me on a variety of subjects,” said Legislator Dixon.  

 

The first meeting is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon, Friday, Sept. 13, at the Lackawanna Senior Center, 230 Martin Road, Lackawanna. Then, from 1:30 to 3:30, Legislator Dixon will host an Outreach Meeting at the Lake Erie Seaway Trail Center, on Route 5 (S-4968 Lakeshore Road), Hamburg.

Every Time.Everywhere.

For one Lockport family, seeing hundreds of people in the community walk in support ofnewborn screening, especially newborn screening for Krabbe Leukodystrophy and similar disorders, means more than words can express.  “Our only son was born in 2010,” shared Sherry Livergood, who along with her husband and son Jackson, are the featured family for this year’s event in Buffalo. “Soon after Jackson’s birth we were told that he received a positive newborn screen for Krabbe Disease, and being from Buffalo, our minds of course went to the Kelly Family.”

Saving Scajaquada Creek

 BUFFALO,NY- " The health of our water affects the health of our selves and our community, and we cannot have a thriving economy without a thriving and healthy environment , it goes hand in hand, it's not one or the other other...water, it connects all of us"

It is one of the foundations of life, yet all too often we ignore it's importance, always at our own risk. In WNY, a prime example of an abused and forgotten waterway is Scajaquada Creek. Fed by the Jubilee Spring, which was once an important water source for the city, much of the creek now lies buried under ground and suffers from a history of environmental affronts.
