TOP STORIES (9): Year of big changes at Niagara University


Niagara Gazette — But the world didn’t end and the school made its way into the Fall 2013 semester with new focus. And shortly after students walked on campus, a new building helped make it possible.

The B. Thomas Golisano Center for Integrated Sciences opened its doors after two years of construction. At an official ribbon cutting and dedication in October, the man with the vision to make the state-of-the-art building possible, Levesque, and the man whose donation made it possible, Golisano, joined Maher to see the fruit of everyone’s labor.

The center is designed to provide biology and chemistry students with impressive work places, as many tools they could use to achieve their goals and a modern-looking space to enjoy their time, which caught the eye of Golisano as he took his first steps inside.

“I like the way it’s organized,” Golisano said at the time. “I’m very happy with the building. Also, it blends in well with the campus. I think it fits well.”

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
