Students, faculty tackle Lew-Port landscaping trouble spot

Students, faculty tackle Lew-Port landscaping trouble spot

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — The August conversations resulted in what took place Tuesday, as a group of about 30 students, three teachers, Langston and A-1 landscaper William Whitmore completed the first phase of a larger project. They successfully spruced up the main walkway leading up to the main office, while also bringing some life to the base of the school’s flagpole.

Part of the school’s Builder’s Club, the students took time after school to make the work easier on the professionals who made it happen.

“We don’t usually get that much help,” Langston said, putting the finishing touches on the work. “It turned out pretty good.”

With Tuesday’s project finished, attention for Golden, Ramirez and those involved shifts to spreading away from the main entryway. Golden said she’d like to see the school’s two other ramps receive the same treatment in the future. Beyond those, she’d like to see a small memorial around the flag pole and even a few decorative trees, like crabapples, planted around the front drive.

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.
