Good News of the Week: Good News for Good Friends

It's Saturday so it's time to look at the good news of the week. Again, we had no submissions from any of our readers, but there's still good news that should be spread. And since we had no input from you guys, you'll have to live with what I deem as good news. So, here we go:

After a health scare earlier this week, our partner in crime, George Root is home and doing fine. He gave us a bit of a start when he texted us with some of his latest troubles. Luckily, at least from what he is telling us, George is home and working again to help bring some of the great content on Niagara's Watercooler.

At the same time, even better news is that George and Craig are getting along just fine. Despite a series of tweets on Twitter, it was all just an April Fool's joke. I can assure you we really don't believe anything that was written. At the same time, it is very difficult to write something negative about a guy you really like. It was not easy to come up with derogatory statements about George.

A big congratulations goes out to my nephew, Derick Sears, who was accepted into the music program at Buffalo State College along with an accompanying scholarship. He'll be transferring from SUNY Stony Brook closer to home. We wish him the best of luck as he moves forward with his education.

Another big congratulations goes out to Tom Lupo of the Lockport Fire Department. While currently an Assistant Chief in Lockport, Lupo will also take on the job of Chief of the Medina Fire Department. He was voted in with a unanimous decision by the Medina Village Board.

Remember, if there is something you'd like to see printed as good news, please email us at . We'll take any submissions under consideration. Thanks for reading.

Craig Bacon thinks good news is overlooked far too often. He's eagerly anticipating the first suggestion from all our loyal readers.
