Voting opens today through Saturday for residents in seven Western New York zip codes to help New York State determine how $1 million in grants will be distributed. Stop by the Elaine M. Panty Branch Library to cast your ballot.

The funding comes through the Tonawanda Community Environmental Benefit Program, run by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the NYS Attorney General's Office. The program is distributing money obtained by the state through an agreement with the Tonawanda Coke Corporation following various environmental violations at the company's former facility in Tonawanda.

Local author announces release of new 5-star rated novel, "Mollie's Follies." Herein, young, beautiful Mary Lynn Sharp, aka Mollie, is on the run prior to reviving from a two-week coma. Upon awakening, her first thought is of the last conversation she overheard, where paramedics are discussing which Missouri hospital is best equipped to treat her horrific injuries, Branson or Springfield. Fast-paced action, swift changing story-lines, and thought-provoking perspectives makes "Mollie's Follies" a great summer read. https://kdp.amazon.com/en_US/bookshelf https://www.amazon.com/author/bonnie.mill-lemke
