Here are some other best - and worst - of the week:
NRG CALLS - It appears Albany is listening. That's the sentiment from both Assemblyman Andy Goodell and County Executive Greg Edwards, regarding the public's push to get the state to buy electricity, through the New York Power Authority, which would keep NRG going for the next three years. The idea is that after three years, the economy will change enough for coal plants to be more affordable in comparison to natural gas. Keep up the letter writing.
SUNY PRESIDENT - It's not official yet, but it appears SUNY Fredonia will have its first female president in the history of the college. Dr. Virginia Schaefer Horvath has been recommended by SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher to become the next president at SUNY Fredonia. Horvath is currently SUNY Fredonia's vice president for academic affairs, so she knows the college well. The SUNY Board of Trustees will vote on the position Wednesday. Assuming she gets the position, we wish her the best in continuing to make SUNY Fredonia a top-notch University.
LAKE SHORE SAVINGS BANK TOURNAMENT - It's always a lot of fun for students and family members alike who are involved in the Lake Shore Savings Bank hockey tournament. It brings a lot of out-of-towners to the community and gives the local youth hockey players a great opportunity to show off their talents while playing in front of family and friends. This year's tournament was the 27th annual event, and we bet there are many visitors who are already looking forward to next year.
VILLAGE ELECTIONS TIMING - Why is it that village elections take place in March? It means more work for either the County Board of Elections or village workers themselves. It also suppresses election turnout. Polls are only open noon to 9 p.m. as opposed to 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. in November. It's time all villages follow Celoron's lead and move the vote to November. It will save money and increase voter turnout.
