Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Good morning dear readers: How’s everyone this week? Are you keep warm and cozy? Tommy Boy the JRT and I are happy just snuggling up on the couch and reading a good book. Of course, it’s time to get tax records together, and that has me a little hot under the collar. Anyway, Groundhog Day is coming up on Sunday, so let’s hope for the best.
