Landmarks in WNY, Ontario, Across State to ‘Light it Up for Lymphedema’

Attractions on the United States and Canadian sides of the border will "Light it Up for Lymphedema" between March 6 and 8 in order to shine the light on lymphedema, a chronic swelling that has no cure.

In order to mark March being designated World Lymphedema Month and March 6 being declared World Lymphedema Day, the New York State Chapter of the Lymphatic Education & Research Network (LE&RN) has contacted the operators of attractions from Buffalo to Toronto to Albany to request the lighting of buildings, domes, bridges, and waterway in teal -- the color of lymphedema (LE) awareness -- in order to bring attention to the disease. This year, LE&RN also is celebrating its 20th year since its inception in 1998, when it was founded as the Lymphatic Research Foundation.

Shadow By the Bridge is Latest Release From NFB Publishing

Shadow By the Bridge is Latest Release From NFB Publishing

NFB Publishing in Buffalo announces the release of Shadow By the Bridge by author Suzanne Zewan.

Set during the time of the infamous Linden, N.Y. murders, Shadow By the Bridge is written from the perspective of 11-year-old Linden resident Fritz Reynolds and focuses on how these terrible events change his hometown and himself. In the book, Reynolds recalls his father telling him that man is the only creature who can find amusement in killing. Little did he realize that those words would become the theme for his teenage years growing up in the rural hamlet. 

In this coming-of-age story, Reynolds takes us back to a simpler time when neighbors gathered at the general store to listen to radio shows, drank barrel-aged cider and worshiped at the Baptist Church every Sunday. All was picturesque in his close-knit farming community until terror was unleashed on them.
