BARKER CHATTERBOX: Start training for Barker's 'Donate Life' walk

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — It’s almost Valentine’s Day and I hope that you find something sweet to celebrate the occasion. Although the emphasis is on romance, it’s a perfect day to celebrate the friendships in your life and the people who bring you smiles and sunshine all year long. Any holiday that involves chocolate is a great one in my book. Friday is also the halfway point of February, moving us closer to March. Hurry, spring!

Our talented Barker athletes get a lot of press from my buddy John D’Onofrio in the US&J sports pages, but I just had to offer a second salute to the Barker Raiders Boys Basketball team, who clinched their first hoops title in 36 years. It was 1978 when they last earned the top spot, so the victory is sweet. Congratulations and good luck in sectionals, fellas.
