TOP 10: Nothing goes easy with Lewiston Road (No. 8)

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — “I think everyone has been generally pleased since we brought the new contractor on board,” Dyster said. “I think the people who live there can see the difference on the ground level.”

Council Chairman Sam Fruscione is one of those people. He’s a DeVeaux resident.

He said that the recent progress has helped long-suffering residents who have been frustrated by limited access to their homes.

“It shows that things could have gone very quickly in the first place,” Fruscione said.

Since the new contractor signed on and the road project began moving forward again, Fruscione said he has seen many houses that have been on the market for a long time with “sold” signs in the front yard.

“We’ve seen a lot of progress,” he said. “The property values will begin to go up again.”

The Gazette is counting down its top 10 stories of the year through New Year's Day. The list: • 10: Tumultuous year for Falls air base • 9: Airport takes hit with Direct Air shutdown • 8: Lewiston Road's rough ride to repair • COMING TOMORROW: A tasty treat for the Falls

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.
