Though she said during an editorial board meeting with the Democrat and Chronicle today that she wants the district she has now - dubbed an "earmuff" for the way it stretches between the cities of Rochester, Buffalo and Niagara Falls through a thin strip of land on the shore of Lake Ontario - she acknowledged that Democrats would like to help Rep. Kathy Hochul.

Library Dispute in Village of Perry: Issue for Veterans

PERRY, NY - The plan of the Perry Library in Wyoming County to add a parking lot for the disabled has upset some neighbors who worry about property values.  But it has also raised concerns for some veterans.

They have questioned why a proposed policy put out in early January would have restricted them from going behind the library building to honor some long buried soldiers at a memorial stone. It turns out the library building was actually built over a cemetery in 1912. Some remains were removed but others are still buried there. There is also a memorial stone which honors a member of the Williams family who served in the War of 1812. Some say there are also veterans of Revolutionary War still buried on site.
