The Great Debate: Tims Tops Dunkin

The Great Debate: Tims Tops Dunkin

Last week, 2 Your Town asked you the viewers to help us settle the longstanding debate of Tim Hortons vs. Dunkin Donuts and today we have declared a winner.

With 440 votes cast, Tim Hortons is Western New York's choice as the best coffee, best food, best prices, and ultimate favorite choice for your morning drive.

Not a total washout, Dunkin Donuts received about 30% of the votes in every category.

 

The Great Debate: Dunkin Donuts vs Tim Hortons

The Great Debate: Dunkin Donuts vs Tim Hortons

It's a decision that most Western New Yorkers make every morning: Dunkin Donuts or Tim Hortons.

For most that decision is almost instinctual, but with both chains having a strong following we have to ask, who's better?

Dealing with Unknown Cancers, Stigmas and Myths that Surround Them

Well there is no simple way of saying this so…..I have been diagnosed with cancer. I have form that until a few years ago was unknown. The cancer I have is of the same type that is known as cervical cancer. BUT it is a form that ONLY attacks men and develops into throat cancer.

 Last year over 6500 new cases of men getting this was found. The CDC believes that in less than 10 years. This cancer will be more prevalent that cervical cancer. Yes more men will get this than women who get cancer. The problem…THERE IS NO TEST for this in men. Not the same for women. Men find out AFTER they systems arrive.

My doctors missed it; they did not see it for what it was. They saw it as a cold, virus, allergy that would go away. That was 5 months ago…they were WRONG.

NO ONE is immune. I mean no one.

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?
