Proceeds from the 2010 Festival of Trees will fund new Electronic Fetal Monitors for Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo.   This gift, made possible in part by event sponsors like CGF Anesthesiology Associates, PC, Mark IV Industries Foundation, Tops Friendly Markets, Fisher-Price and the physician members of University at Buffalo Pediatric Associates, Inc., will enable the Hospital to replace all the monitors with the latest and most state-of-the–art equipment.  Constant monitoring and examination during the labor process will allow doctors to monitor progress and ensure the safest possible delivery with minimal complication for both baby and mother.

Police Say Weekend Carjacking, Abduction a Hoax

BUFFALO, NY - Buffalo Police now say an incident early Sunday morning involving an alleged carjacking and abduction was made up to cover a robbery.

Police say the incident began when a male victim said he was abducted around 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning on Elmwood Avenue near Forest Avenue. The victim told police he was struck in the head and forced into a car.

While they drove down Elmwood, the "kidnappers" jumped out and confronted two college students and robbed them of cash and cell phones.

The carjacking "victim" then said he was thrown from the car on Bird Avenue.  That vehicle then struck three parked cars.

A Buffalo State security officer was given a detailed description of the suspects' vehicle from the students who were robbed. Police spotted the vehicle on Elmwood at the entrance to the college and chased the car. But they got away.

Reprinted with permission from GROW WNY

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Join filmmaker Josh Fox for the Buffalo Premier of his film, Gasland, Saturday, October 30, at 7 p.m.

A natural-gas drilling boom has swept across the United States in recent years, as the Halliburton-developed drilling technology of “fracking” has unlocked a “Saudi Arabia of natural gas” just beneath us.

But is the method safe?

When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he decides to investigate, embarking upon a cross-country odyssey. He uncovers a trail of secrets, lies and contamination – from unexplained illnesses to flammable tap water – in this expose of a new country called Gasland.

Sister Karen Peace Garden Dedicated, Blessed

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- A sunny October day seemed fitting to honor Sister Karen Klimczak, SSJ, a religious sister who dedicated her life to tending to the darkest of hearts. On what would be her 67th birthday, SS. Columba-Brigid Parish in Buffalo opened and blessed the Sister Karen Klimczak Peace Garden.

“We have come to celebrate, to celebrate life, to celebrate love, to celebrate faith that so many of us have come to know in the person of Sister Karen Klimczak,” said SS. Columba-Brigid pastor and longtime friend, Father Roy Heberger. “We realize that, as we gather, this is a beautiful garden, a peace garden, in her memory. But what I want us to remember is that it is not just remembering the past; that is not why we put this together. We put this together using the memory of her life and her death, but to give hope and inspiration to the future.”
