Says Some Retail Stores and Pharmacies Now Charging as much as $10 Dollars

Erie County, NY – As many area motorists will have their driver licenses expire over the next few years, Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs encourages motorists to renew their licenses at one of the many conveniently located Auto Bureaus throughout Erie County.

Mike Sedia has fond memories of days that have long since passed, when he would watch his mother and grandmother prepare homemade ravioli by hand to feed their hungry family. 

“We’re Italian, and that’s what we would do on a Sunday,” recalled Mike. “Everyone loved that pasta. We always said that we should sell their pasta and sauce.”
