Rheumatoid Arthritis

I took stock of my body the other day while going though an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) test. An MRI scan is a medical test that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create a detailed picture of organs and other structures inside the body. Basically, you sit on...

Not such a slow week

The week leading-up to Presidents Day is typically among the slowest in sports. But, not this past week. And it has little to do with the Olympics. Every four years we get newly acquainted, or re-acquainted with individual athletes in a country fixated on team sports. So, please forgive this...

Tide Pods

Hmm, in my young days you had to be pretty stupid to intentionally put something in your mouth that you knew would harm you and taste pretty awful. The latest “craze” for teens is to put a Tide laundry detergent Pod in their mouth and bite down. It seems some...

The Right Thing

Some Super Bowl, huh? Sure, if you believe defense is optional. America may have gotten most of its collective celebrated hatred for the Patriots out of its system, and the confetti has been swept off the streets of Philadelphia, but there’s still a hangover. New England and Philly both gave...

What I want in a President, or any politician

The dogs, the Sheriff and the weather

Good news! The Wayne County Humane Society and the District Attorney’s Office, along with the Sheriff’s Office are starting a program entitled “Dog Blue”. When the temperature is below 32 degrees, if a pet owner does not have sufficient outdoor shelter, the Humane Society can work with the pet owners...

Three Point Stance

The Buffalo Bills have hired a new offensive coordinator. Brian Dabold is a University of Rochester grad, a Buffalo kid, and a disciple of both Bill Belichick and Nick Saban. So, that means he must be awesome, right? Maybe. People thought the same about Charlie Weis, Romeo Crenell, Eric Mangini,...
