Rep. Higgins & Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation Announce $5 Million for Buffalo Harbor

Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-27) Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation (ECHDC) Chairman Jordan Levy announced the release of $5 million, secured through the New York Power Authority relicensing settlement agreement, toward a project to build the Buffalo Harbor Bridge

“For decades limited and disjointed access has kept people, business and opportunity away from the Outer Harbor,” said Congressman Brian Higgins.  “By providing a link between the City’s downtown core and our waterfront we are actually building a bridge to limitless opportunities to draw economic development, jobs, residential living, recreation and tourism into the region.”

How to Make Your Car Last Forever: Auto Q&A with Tom Torbjornsen

Dear Tom,

I own a ’98 Dodge Neon with 97,000 miles. A few days ago while driving, I noticed that the battery light was on and all the gauges were going crazy (up and down). This happens only when the vehicle is in motion. I tested the battery and it’s good. What’s causing the problem?

FREE car seat safety check in Derby

DERBY, N.Y. – Erie County Legislator Lynne Dixon, District 12, has partnered with the Erie County Stop DWI Office and North Evans Volunteer Firefighters to hold a free car seat safety check.

“Reports have shown that more than 90 percent of car seats are installed improperly. That is a shocking and dangerous statistic,” Legislator Dixon said. “Car seats that are not installed correctly are extremely hazardous, and I encourage all parents to stop and have their car seats checked during this event. Taking a few minutes out of their day could potentially save their child’s life.”

The check will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, August 14, at the Highland Hose Volunteer Fire Company, 1 George Nablo Parkway, Derby, NY 14047. Checks will take place in the parking lot.

Having law enforcement professionals check the seats helps ensure children’s car safety seats are installed properly which can prevent injuries and save lives.
