Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Good morning dear readers: How’s everyone this week? Here it is the last day of March and it looks like the weather is improving a little bit. I actually saw some flower bulbs trying to push their way out of the cold ground.

Happy birthday wishes to Sammy Haag, my grandson from Lockport, who is just turning 7 today, and has lost almost as many teeth these past few weeks. The Tooth Fairy was sure busy during March.

W. H. Stevenson Elementary School is on a mission to bring Andy Parker’s Weather Machine to Ransomville next month, and you can help. Every morning on Channel 2 news, a “weather word of the day” is provided. Viewers are asked to visit the website and vote as many times as possible for their school of choice. The school with the most votes by next month’s deadline will receive a visit from weatherman Andy Parker.
