The Buffalo Police Athletic League, along with the city, puts on quite the New Years celebration in Roosevelt Square every year. I’ve attended the event several times and never go without a camera because it’s always a visually pleasing scene. This year I covered the ball drop for WGRZ and put together some of the sights and sounds for our Daybreak show. Enjoy, and happy 2015.

Governor Cuomo was in Buffalo yesterday to announce a parochial school tax break. The proposed bill, the Parental Choice in Education Act, would provide up to $500 per student in tax credits for families with a household income under $60,000.

Hamburg Central Schools passed an anti-hazing policy Tuesday night. The policy bans hazing on school property and buses and by school-sponsored groups, clubs and teams at school-sponsored activities both on and off-campus.

A big inning propelled the Buffalo Bisons to a 6-2 win over the Durham Bulls. The herd rallied in the fourth inning with 6 runs including a two-run double by Brad Glenn.

One #Buffalo #CentralTerminal enthusiast has a grand vision for what the east side landmark could look like in the 21st century with the proper development. He built this vision in his basement, brick by brick.
