New kayak launch opens at the Outer Harbor


BUFFALO, NY - It seems like every week we have something new to tell you about developments at the waterfront.

On Friday, that news came from the outer harbor where officials cut the ribbon on a new kayak launch. It's now going to be easier for boaters to get into the water and explore the shore.

The new kayak launch is at Wilkeson Pointe, near the Times Beach Nature Preserve and Coast Guard Base.

You can get over there using the new bike ferry.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday also included the release of the summer events schedule for the Outer Harbor. The schedule includes concerts, boat shows and an event each Friday in July called "Sky's the Limit." That will consist of hot air balloon rides, rocket launching and kite flying.

Rich Blake, author of “Slats: The Legend and Life of Jimmy Slattery,” will visit Dog Ears Bookstore & Café at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 4, for a book-signing event. The nonprofit community bookstore is located at 688 Abbott Road, Buffalo.

Jimmy Slattery was the personification of the Golden Era of sports in the boom/bust 1920s and ’30s. A phantom in the ring, “Slats” soared across the national stage like a comet, then crashed into oblivion. Discarded by the ages, this is the incredible true story of the Irish boy-wonder from Buffalo’s First Ward who captivated the boxing world at its peak.

Quinn: "Mayoral Control" Slowing Superintendent Search


BUFFALO, NY - We're learning more about the Buffalo School District's search for a new superintendent.

A few names have been talked about, but so far with no real commitment to any candidate.

"As time moves along it becomes a greater concern, and then the discussion will go not only making the right selection for the permanent superintendent but making provisions for an interim that would begin July 1 if they haven't been able to identify someone and have that person start," said Buffalo Schools interim superintendent Donald Ogilvie.

The selection process is winding down, with only a month until Ogilvie leaves Buffalo Public Schools. Ogilvie says that, so far, the district has received about 10 applications -- all of them coming from outside New York state.

"Nobody thought it was going to last," marathon committee member Brad Boyle said.

But the race persisted.

Each spring, the marathon attracted new runners, ranging from the elite to the amateur. Slowly -- very slowly -- the Buffalo Marathon overcame its humble beginnings, growing from a race of hundreds of people to a race of thousands.
