Western New Yorkers Who Died Or Were
Killed In Vietnam Are Remembered
the Vietnam War or outside
of Vietnam); the graves of
the 51 have been decorated
with U.S. flags during this
15-day period and information about them is included
in the book. To reach the
chapel, enter Forest Lawn
through the Delaware Avenue or Main Street gates
and follow the white line on
the road.
About Forest Lawn: As
one of the first deliberately
designed and professionally
landscaped rural cemeteries in the United States,
Forest Lawn is at the heart
of Western New York’s cultural tourism renaissance.
Its first interment took
place in 1850; today there
Pat Kavanagh presents a book honoring Western New York’s fallen heroes from
the Vietnam War. The book will be on display at Forest Lawn until May 15th.
Forest Lawn Historian and
Vietnam Veteran, Patrick
Kavanagh, has researched,
organized and compiled “In
Remembrance Of,” a book
honoring Western New
York’s fallen heroes from
the Vietnam War. The book
includes information on
more than 500 men and one
woman with direct ties to
the eight counties of Western New York who were
killed or died while on active duty in Vietnam.
Mr. Kavanagh served as
a SP/5 medic in the U.S.
Army from 1967-1970, including one year (October
1968-1969) in Vietnam; he
was honorably discharged
in July 1970. He completed
this project “as a labor of
love so that those who made
the ultimate sacrifice will
never be forgotten.”
Copies of the book containing newspaper articles,
death notices, photos and
obituaries will be available
for review at the chapel in
Forest Lawn for 15 days
– one day for each year the
U.S. was involved in the
Vietnam War.
It was on April 30th in
1975 when the last American servicemen died in the
war and the last Marines
guarding the U.S. Embassy
in Saigon lifted off, signaling the end of the war.
The book will then be on
display daily in the Forest

Free Movie Passes to North Park Theatre: C. Adamo 43 Habmoor.
Sometimes, it seems,
it takes a crisis to draw
crowd. Last Spring, local
cultural treasures such as
Shakespeare in the Park
were fulminating when
the then county executive,
can’t remember his name,
ruled to cut their county
funding, some of which
amounted to little more
than a hatful of change.
They banded together
in a “Give for Greatness”
campaign with a free concert by the Philharmonic,
at which donations would
be requested, with lyrics
provided by Randy Kramer’s MusicalFare Theater.
More than 1,100 supporters dropped by, contributing more than $10,000.
The following week Rocket Man wrote:
“It just seemed as if it
should have been more.
‘We were just thrilled
with all the results,’
Kramer said. ‘Next year’
is already in the works.”
“Next year” arrived this
past Sunday. For just under an hour and a half
the throng at Kleinhans
heard the orchestra at its
finest under conductor
Paul Ferington, Kramer
and Theresa Quinn cramming maximum Gershwin into four hands and
five minutes, and glorious show music by Ellen
Horst, Tom Owen, Jenn
Stafford and Pascal Frisina.
“What a thrill to sing
‘Sound of Music’ in front
of that orchestra,” said Ellen, a nationally travelled
actress who has returned
to honor us all with performances in the likes of,
say, “Imagining Madoff”
last fall at the Jewish
Repertory Theatre. “I get
to sing so seldom – it’s
nice to find the voice is
still intact!”
The thing is, though,
that absent the frantic response to the Collins cutback (oh, yeah,
there’s his name), enthusiasm was curbed. Publicity was sparse. Rocket
Man learned of it only at
the last minute, thanks
to ArtVoice’s Anthony
Chase, who treated us to
an additional half-hour
of people-watching. We
heard one chap rattle off
the number of entitlements he was receiving,
then observe that this
sort of thing was all he
could afford.
(Requested donation was
$5 – we presume he made
that minimum,although
according to organizer
Kramer, the average kickin was double that.)
But 20 minutes before downbeat, the hall
seemed practically empty.
Eventually they filled it
out a little, about 600 or
so in attendance according to the clicker of actor
Richard Hummert, whose
seasonal gigs suggest he
may have been categorizing them into naughty
and nice.
Seriously, though, this
deserved much, much
more – more fanfare,
more people, even a little
more attention to sound
balance, which was definitely biased in favor of
the instruments.
The crisis may be past,
but the cause remains
just, and only about 600
folks capitalized on the
musical deal of the century. Do we need to bring
Chris Collins back again?

FIRST COME...FIRST SERVE
UNTIL THEY ARE GONE
Free Pizza: M Franchell 373 Colvin
A few years back at a
Kiwanis pancake breakfast, I ran into an old
school mate who stated
she reads my column. She
was with a group of other
ladies and she explained
who I was and about the
column. The ladies, I assume, were all Italian as
she said to them in Italian
that I mostly complain in
my writings. She was unaware that I understand
a little Italian and knew
what she said. No problem, as I use this space
to voice my concerns on
some issues. I do, however write about other topics that are positive.
Saying that, I now will go
into a complaining mode.
I recently took my annual
adventure of driving back
from southern Florida.
The weather there was
in the low to mid eighties
every day with sunshine.
If it rained, it rained at
night and did not affect
the daily routine. Enough
of that as I want to go
into the drive home and
to do some comparisons.
The biggest gripe I have,
is again, why is there
such a difference in gas
prices from state to state?
I filled my tank in South
Carolina for $3.50 a gallon. I filled my tank in
this area when I got home
for $4.10. Sixty cents a
gallon more? For 15 gallons that is a difference of
nine dollars. Why is that?
In Florida I filled up at
$3.85 and thought that
was high. I am well aware
that we live in the most
taxed state. Sales tax in
the states I stopped to eat
in ranged from minimal
to six percent. Here we
pay almost nine percent.
Drove over 1,300 miles
on beautiful divided interstate highways for
free. Up until you reach
the last 80 and the New
York state border. As we
all know, you have to pay
tolls on the New York
state thruway. Let me
add that all states I traveled in have the exits at
the mile markers. In other words, exit one is one
mile into the state, exit
50 is 50 miles from the
border, and so on. Not in
New York! If you travel
much you know the difference and how convenient
it is to have the exits at
the mile mark. Guess the
New York State Department of Transportation
does not have anyone
CHECK US OUT ONLINE
WWW.BUFFALOROCKET.COM
smart enough to figure
out how to do that. Nor do
they care to.
Why is it that in Florida
my house is a total electric house with air conditioning on all day and
night, the bill is cheaper
than my empty house in
New York? There is no
gas so we do not have to
deal with that rip off utility. We do have water and
again, no comparison as
far as service and cost.
The water bill is at least
a third less than Buffalo.
There is no state income
tax!
So you would ask "why
don’t you just move to
Florida and shut up?" I
love Florida in the winter, but that is it. Lots of
friends down there but
most are snow birds like
us. It is hot there in the
summer which is not so
pleasant. Better than
half the population has
left Florida and headed
back up north. The most
important reason is I love
this area in the spring,
summer and fall. I grew
up here and will most
likely die here. If I could
in some way contribute
to making right all the
wrong things that are
happening in this state, I
would like to do so. If
that is complaining, then
Vicky, I am a complainer.
Until we change the status quo in our state, you
will hear me loud and
clear.
