MARCHING INTO HISTORY — A parade proceeds down Delaware Avenue in Kenmore in 1938. The storefronts, all built immediately after World War I, remain, but the businesses have changed. The First National Bank building is now a branch of the M&T Bank.

One Village of Kenmore official said the three-year contract signed last Tuesday between the village and its department of public works employees marks a radical new age in labor negotiations. Trustee Salvatore Cardullo was referring to the new pact signed by the village and DPW employees. The deal calls for raises of 2 and 3 percent every six months in the life of the contract and better health benefits as the perks for accepting the contract.

Feelings of anti-incumbency were faint in the Town of Tonawanda as all standing elected officials were successful in their bids to return to office last week. Assemblyman Robin Schimminger won by a wide margin over challenger Geoffrey Dell in the race for the 140th Assembly seat. Congressman John J. LaFalce lost his home election district but won comfortably over William E. Miller Jr., a first-time candidate from Lockport, in their race for the newly drawn 29th congressional district.

The Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda Chamber of Commerce is advising its members of a company that is falsely representing the chamber in an effort to get advertising for a commemorative town poster. Potential advertisers for this poster, similar to the one done by the chamber more than two years ago, are being told the company in question is endorsed by the Chamber. That is not the case, according to Chamber of Commerce officials. While they are aware of the new poster effort, the Chamber does not endorse the company’s plan and wants its members to know that as potential advertisers.
