Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Good morning dear readers: How’s everyone this week? Tommy Boy the JRT and I have been hibernating along with the rest of Western New York. However, Wilson didn’t get the snow that other areas did. We had cold temperatures and winds, but little else. Still, it was a fine time to cuddle up with a good book, a fuzzy dog, hot chocolate and a cozy feather throw. I must admit I will have some serious cleaning up to do right outside the door as Tommy looked at me like I was nuts for sending him out there. He did the Wilson Two Step, then ran back into the house and up onto the couch again. Can’t say that I could blame him. Yeah, I know I’m harboring a spoiled rotten dog, but then he’s so cute I can’t help myself.

If you are interested in history, the end of December 2013 marked the 200th anniversary of the burning of the settlement where the Village of Wilson stands today. Thanks to our own Bob Kane, a commemorative card of this event will be available in every National Park across America. Special thanks to local artist George Banagis, whose beautiful commemorative drawing graces the front. A full-color version can be seen at the Village of Wilson office and the Wilson Free Library.
