How to choose the pet that's right for you

What could be better than introducing a furry, fluffy, loyal pal to your life? There's no doubt that there are many benefits from owning a pet, but before you bring a dog or cat home, you want to make sure that your choice will fit in with you and your family. Pets Plus Us, a pet owner community and insurance coverage provider, offers a few tips for choosing the perfect pet:

Pet Connection Programs; Helping The Helpless

It has been said that the quality of mercy is not strained...that it blesses those that give and those that receive..Although those these words were written long ago, they could easily describe Pet Connection Programs in Marilla .For over thirty years the shelter has been caring for pregnant dogs and cats and their offspring, animals most in need of a gentle and caring hand. Julie Garvey is the shelter's president." The mothers are always the ones we are worried about first because...a simple thing like giving them food, whoever had them that dumped them just didn't feed them. The more they eat the more milk they produce so we really try to get their weight back on so that they can take care of their puppies, if not we're there for them."

Deadline Passes, Six Districts to Lose State Aid Including Hamburg

By: Jessica Bakeman

A few school districts received last-minute approval for their teacher evaluation plans Thursday night, but six missed the deadline, forfeiting a scheduled state aid increase.

New York City, Fallsburg in Sullivan County and Pine Plains in Dutchess County never submitted plans for review.

Hamburg in Erie County submitted a plan, but it was not agreed upon by local unions, so it was not eligible for approval. Superintendent Steve Achramovitch says these were complex negotiations that just broke off and he will now try to go back and work with the teachers' union to get an agreement as required. 

Hamburg Fairgrounds to Host Buffalo Warriors; Jim Brinson to Call Games

Hamburg Fairgrounds to Host Buffalo Warriors; Jim Brinson to Call Games

The Buffalo Warriors of the IBA-PBL basketball league have chosen an exciting suburban location for their 2013 home games: The Event Center at the Hamburg Fairgrounds!

The selection of the Event Center was an easy choice, according to Ed Bednarz, owner of the Buffalo Warriors. “The Event Center has everything we need, including seating for up to 5,000 fans, a climate-controlled environment, ticket offices, concession stands and plenty of free parking. It also has the added draw of the busy casino and racetrack, so bringing our basketball games there is a natural fit.”
