  • SUN LIFE book nook I CANcer 051814.jpg BOOK REVIEW: Children's book seeks to make cancer less scary

    As a newspaper editor, I receive a lot of books for review. Many of them end up in a pile on my desk and languish, simply for lack of time to read each and every one.

    The self-published books are a little more neglected than others because, frankly, most feel a bit like reading someone’s term paper.

    Still, there’s been a book at the bottom of my in-basket for months now, and I placed it there because I really intended to give it my full attention one day.   

    That day came recently, when I finally opened “I CANcer.”

  • SUN LIFE Gold Star Moms 051114.jpg REMEMBER: Gold Star Moms share memories in new book; signing planned in Lewiston. Their sons have been dead for more than 40 years. Many were teenagers who gave their lives fighting a hellish war on the other side of the earth. Some were battlefield heroes. Their mothers will never forget the sacrifices their sons made. But now their sons' stories will live on, thanks to a local author who has documented them in her new book, "Our Sons, Our Heroes." Linda Jenkin Costanzo of Clarence never meant to write a book about the Americans who died in Vietnam. She was only 14 when she first started hearing about the young soldiers who gave their lives fighting in America's most unpopular war.

  • SUNLIFEReusecenter1050414jpg.jpg VIDEO: ReClaim Store offers the reusable building materials

    Nothing makes some decorators happier than old, gently used household items like a claw-foot bathtub or a brass door knob.
    A new ReClaim Store in Niagara Falls is going to offer a treasure trove to such decorators, as well as to homeowners, landlords and bargain shoppers.
    The store, which was opened in a temporary location at 2411 Hyde Park Blvd. in Harpor Plaza, is another extension of the increasingly successful Isaiah 61 Project, which trains unemployed and underemployed people in the construction trades while renovating abandoned city homes. The homes are then sold at affordable prices to families who can help stabilize neighborhoods.
