TUESDAY TALKS: Salvaging city houses while training underemployed

Pieces of Niagara Falls are being salvaged by a local housing not-for-profit.

The Isaiah 61 Project, an agency that trains unemployed and underemployed residents in skilled trades while restoring vacant, city-owned houses, has started the next phase in its mission, going into houses set to be demolished by the city and taking trim, light fixtures and banisters to be resold.

The agency will open a temporary reclaim store on Hyde Park Boulevard before moving to their new headquarters, a Highland Avenue fire hall in the process of being restored, later this year.

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.
