John Ceretto, R-I-Lewiston, participated in a joint appearance Monday with U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer and Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster to announce support for a fast tracking of federal funds to demolish a southern portion of the Robert Moses Parkway.

The project aims to remove the Robert Moses Parkway between John Daly Boulevard and Main Street and replace it with a park road, creating pedestrian access between Main Street and the Waterfront Park. Ceretto credited the plan as a boon for residents of Niagara Falls and a project that can create jobs in Niagara County.

"I have been a constant voice for finding ways for the City of Niagara Falls to attract the visitors that come to Niagara Falls State Park," said Ceretto. "This will ensure greater activity around our hotels, our casino and our restaurants, and develop our waterfront."

New owners hope to put old charm back into Village Bake Shoppe
Tue, Nov 8th 2011 02:30 pm
Why bake for the holidays when the Fiores will do it for you?

That's Michael Fiore's thought, anyway. He and his wife, Lindsay, are the new owners of the Village Bake Shoppe at 417 Center St., Lewiston. On Thursday morning, the store will reopen with a new look, newly painted walls, the previous staff ... and original owner Bridget Schroeder's from-scratch recipes.

Michael, who has known Bridget for several years, says her no-mix, original cakes, pies, cookies and brownies "can't be easily duplicated."

Pairing high-end products with a fresh d├ęcor, he says his plan is to develop the Village Bake Shoppe into "more of an attraction."

"I want this place to be a destination," Michael says.

Village of Lewiston calls timeout on Center Street talk
Tue, Nov 8th 2011 08:40 am
Trustees in the Village of Lewiston on Monday opted not to talk about festival suggestions submitted by Mayor Terry Collesano's ad hoc committee. Though Collesano asked to discuss the five-person panel's recommendations for when and how to close Center Street, his colleagues asked for more time to review the letter submitted last week.

The Village Board did speak with accountant Pat Brown of Brown & Co. He informed trustees of a need to raise the water rate from $2.80 per 100 cubic feet to $3.55, and the sewer rate from $3.95 per 100 cubic feet to $4.65, to offset cost increases from the Niagara County Water District and the Town of Lewiston Master Sewer District.

The proposed increases would take effect with the Jan. 1, 2012, billing. Brown said the average Village of Lewiston resident would pay about $25 more per year.
