Community comes out in force for family of slain woman


Niagara Gazette — "Everybody said their sorry's," she said. "With everything going on all at once and with everybody grieving, there may have been some issues. But it's all resolved now."

Arthur Gates, Loretta's father, spent much of his Saturday like the rest of his family. He was running around making sure everyone else was operating like the well-oiled machine they needed to be to accommodate the large crowd, sometimes forming a line 10 or 12 deep just to purchase raffle tickets and door prize entries.

He, too, was shocked at the turnout of people who took notice of his family and the struggles they'd have for years and was thankful for the bit of relief they were able to secure Saturday.

"It's just unreal," he said. "For this number of kind-hearted people to come out like this is really something. Thank you, everyone."

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.
