Seth Piccirillo, City of Niagara Falls Community Development Director, describes a number of programs and initiatives that he is responsible for as head of the department.
Some of the callers wanted to talk about what they perceive to be a saturation of low income housing.
Mr. Piccirillo also discussed the process that he uses to formulate the yearly budget for community development.
I continued to press for a casino revenue spending policy that would incorporate the same public disclosure that his budget goes through.

Marsha Winsryg may have gone to Africa to site see and look at local culture but when that culture reached out to her as an artist and teacher, something happened. She was asked by local artisans to take their wares back to the USA and sell them, which she did. However, as she really looked around she saw a need , a humanitarian need especially among children, that was created by the cultural devastation that was a looming as a result of the HIV/AIDS crisis. In Zambia, one out of three people are HIV positive and everyone has lost family members. Most adults are caring for orphans as well as their own children in an economy that barely sustains a subsistence lifestyle.
As a response to her question, "What can I DO?" , Marsha founded The African Artisans Community Development Project—AACDP—provides economic opportunity for Zambian artisans while generating cash support for local Zambian NGOs treating children who have been orphaned or disabled as a result of the HIV/AIDS crisis.
Their method is simple and cost-effective. Thet buy Zambian crafts from local artisans at full market rate for Africa; sell the crafts back n the United States at American rates; and then send the profits back to Zambian schools and clinics providing services to children.
What does it mean to be truly committed to the community? As the northern New Mexico's largest employer, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has remained steadfast in their investments through the Community Commitment Plan that Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS) – the company that manages LANL – established in 2006. Even through hard times and budget negotiations, LANS has made strategic investments in education, economic development and community giving.
Carol A. Clark, publisher of the Los Alamos Daily Post (the online news source for the community) talks with Carole Rutten, deputy director of the LANL Community Programs Office. Interviewing each other, listeners gain a better understanding of what this commitment to the northern New Mexico region really means.
