SORT BY Relevancy
Downtown residents of Buffalo are feeling pushed-out more and more over the past few years, and most of this has to do with an initiative launched years ago that has little or nothing to do with them, but affects where they currently live and the future of Buffalo, NY.
What is taking place stands to be part of Buffalo's version of Gentrification called UB 2020 that is eating away at the rights of the immediate black community affecting it-also known as the Fruit Belt-and the latest issue regarding it is the practice of suburban employees who work downtown taking parking spaces in front of homes of residents. A bill that would create a parking permit system is currently having trouble going through.
Chris will once again interview Veronica Nichols who has been fighting for the residents of the Fruit Belt (where she resides) and nearby McCarley Gardens for the past several years.
According to a report by WGRZ TV: "The proposal would allow a program to be established along the most heavily impacted streets, including sections of Maple, Mulberry, Locust, Carlton and High streets. Residents would be issued permits to park and 20 percent of the spaces would still be available for non-residential parking.
Two On Your Side has obtained a document showing that CSEA does not support a permit program because employees have limited places to park.
Currently, 3,100 employees work at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and only 1,600 spaces are available. In the next five years, 17,000 people are expected to work at the medical campus."
Truck drivers have been saying for years that, "We need more truck parking" but it seems that it took an article in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) to get the much needed attention of the general public.
Join us with our special guest Dave Della Maggiore, a 20 year veteran driver as he shares his interview by WSJ journalist Betsy Morris from the report entitled: Too Many Trucks,Too Little Parking. Dave will also share his thoughts about the trip with WSJ photographers and his encounter with a tired trucker at a truck stop in Clines Corners, New Mexico.
Dave and fiancée, Robin, run their active Facebook group, Give Truckers Room, educating drivers of passenger vehicles how to drive safely around semi trucks.
Also joining us will be Nicholas Carretta, President and CEO of UltraShipTMS which specializes in transportation and technology solutions. UltraShipTMS quickly responded to the WSJ article and addressed the serious parking shortage in their own article, “Use YMS to Combat Truck Parking Crisis" which stated:
"Keeping drivers off of public streets, freeway ramps and vulnerable, remote parking places like abandoned lots is a laudable goal. It is also one that logistics as an industry is going to be forced to address."
Mr. Carretta will discuss the UltraYMS tool, allowing the logistics sector to take an active and responsible part in the truck parking shortage solution.

The Power of Forgiveness: Forgiving as a Path to Freedom with Joan Gattuso
In this enlightening title, Gattuso shows readers how to let go of past grievances in order to embrace a life of joy and peace. Sympathetic to the often immense undertaking forgiveness requires, Gattuso provides prescriptive exercises, visualizations and meditations to help readers overcome the most emotional challenges involved in the process.
Including real-life examples of those who have chosen radical forgiveness in light of extreme circumstances, Gattuso illustrates that forgiveness is possible in even the most unthinkable situations. Yet, she also provides guidance for incorporating forgiveness into our daily lives to address the smaller grievances, as well. Whether we are irritated over a stolen parking spot or hurt from an off-handed insult, we are often unaware that our unwillingness to forgive each and every day allows anger to build up in our daily lives.
Written with empathy and offering inspiration from a number of venerated spiritual leaders, this powerful manual provides readers with the tools they need to embrace forgiveness. With the potential to be life-changing, THE POWER OF FORGIVENESS is an invaluable guidebook for anyone seeking to break free from the oppression of resentment and to embrace a more joyful life.
Joan Gattuso has studied with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and has authored three popular books that have been translated into several languages: A Course in Love, A Course in Life, and The Lotus Still Blooms. Gattuso is a well-known Unity minister.
