HIGHS AND LOWS: Some of the best, worst of the week
Here are some of the best — and worst — of the week:
HURRICANE HELP — A big thank you to those people in the community that are stepping up making, either financial donations or donations of water or other needs. These items are severely needed in Puerto Rico, where many people still do have electricity or running water. If you would like to make a donation visit the relief collection zone, located at the corner of Washington Avenue and Lake Shore Drive in Dunkirk. Firefighters will be there Monday from 3-7 p.m.
ROQUE GOES PRO — On Friday night, Tommy “No Joke” Roque was scheduled to officially make his professional boxing debut at “Ready2Rumble” in Colorado. Roque has been around the Dunkirk boxing community years, waiting for an opportunity. We don’t what is next for Roque following Friday night’s fight but we wish him the best.
DOG’S FIGHTING CHANCE — Polly, a Piebald Catahoula dog in Stockton, was attacked by some sort of wild animal. With the help of Mark and Terra Cunningham, who also run Weimeraner Rescue of the North, Polly has survived. The Cunninghams have put countless hours into helping the dog recover. Many others have donated financially for the mounting vet bills. This has given Polly a second chance at life. If you would like to follow her journey to recovery, go to facebook.com/NYSSwimeraner. You can also make a donation or even be considered to adopt the pet.
MD ELECTRONICS — MD Electronics in Jamestown is in the process of relocating to Mexico. It will mean about 90 people will be out of a job. Some will blame Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Others will blame President Donald Trump. No matter which side you come down on, our different levels of government must work together to prevent companies from moving outside the United States in search of cheaper labor.
