Here are some of the best - and worst - of the week:
THAT '70S REUNION - Last weekend during the Silver Creek Grape Festival, a huge high school reunion was held for graduates of the 1970s. To make the reunion a little more meaningful, the reunion was also a fundraiser. Graduates raised money for the Silver Creek Food Pantry and the Laurel Run. Many of the graduates of Silver Creek have moved away over the years, but their generosity shows they still care about their hometown!
FLASH MOB - A group of more than 50 students and staff, including President Virginia Horvath, broke out into a flash mob on Monday. The group danced to "Let's Go" by Calvin Harris and Ne-Yo. The video, which was posted on YouTube, has already had more than 3000 "hits." It was inspired by Dr. Horvath's official investiture as SUNY Fredonia's new president.
UNITED WAY CAMPAIGN - For 125 years, the United Way has been making a difference in people's lives. The United Way recently kicked off its campaign in Northern Chautauqua County. In the past year, the local agency served more than 32,000 people. "When you have a rough economy, money from the government and other sources is impacted. People look to organizations for help," stated Board President Jim Subjack. It's why giving to the United Way makes a difference.
NHL LOCKOUT - Once again, we have millionaires and billionaires arguing about money. Commissioner Gary Bettman was authorized by NHL team owners to lock out the National Hockey League Players Association. This is the fourth time in the last 20 years a lockout has taken place, the most of any major professional sports league. The last time there was an NHL lockout, an entire season was lost. so far, the pre-season for September has been canceled. Let's hope this lockout doesn't bring the same result as it did eight years ago.
