Tree-Killing Insect Spreading Across Western New York


EAST AURORA, N.Y. - In February, Sharon Bachman noticed a problem along Seneca Street in East Aurora: it appeared woodpeckers had attacked a few of the ash trees. Bark was peeling off, and the trees were withering away.

Using her expertise as a community educator at Cornell Corporate Extension, Bachman made an immediate diagnosis.

"It's kind of the first sign that Emerald Ash Borer is moving into an area," Bachman said.

The Emerald Ash Borer -- known for short as EAB -- is a little green insect. It first appeared in North America in 2002 near Detroit before spreading across more than a dozen states, killing millions of trees. In 2009, researchers discovered the insect in the Town of Randolph in Cattaraugus County.

And now it's all across the region.

Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Ultimate Fairgoer Contest

Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Ultimate Fairgoer Contest

As my countdown to the 176th Erie County Fair continues on, this year brings special Fair memories for me.  This year marks the 10th anniversary of me being selected as the Ultimate Fairgoer.  The folks over at the Fairgrounds began the search for the person who loves the Fair, who breathes the Fair, and who simply put, cannot get enough of the Fair way back in 2005!  And that is where my story begins!

Yes, the search for the person for the new contest at the Fair begins.  The ad says that they are looking for someone that you think is deserving of the new title of “Ultimate Fairgoer”.  It has to be someone that really loves the Fair.  They were looking for that one “outstanding” Fairgoer.  And along with the prestigious title of “Ultimate”, they were also awarding a ton of pretty nice prizes.
