    I figured there was a good chance FReepers from Western New York might be interested in this. Some guy (well, some guy and an ARMY) decided to scan in and digitize various local newspapers and flyers from the region. He has over 15,000,000 PDFs, digitized and searchable. You can search for names or events or locations or whatever. I found a picture of me when I was ten! And mentions from local papers in the early 1940's that my father had made the honor roll! It's extraordinarily interesting to look back and see the old ads, (the PRICES!!), the flavors...

    Democratic Congressman Maurice Hinchley had an altercation with a reporter prior to his debate with his GOP challenger George Phillips last night when the journalist asked him questions about a real estate deal he will profit from using federal dollars: "Hinchey has previously insisted his only involvement in the project is as a partial owner of the land where it will be built. Last night, he said he has 'no financial interest' in the project, and pointedly told Kemble: 'What are you talking about...Are you trying to give the same phony stuff that are you put in the Freeman so...

    Upstate New York is staggering from an accelerating exodus of young adults, new census results show. The migration is turning many communities grayer, threatening the long-term viability of ailing cities and raising concerns about the state's future tax base. From 1990 to 2004, the number of 25-to-34-year-old residents in the 52 counties north of Rockland and Putnam declined by more than 25 percent. In 13 counties that include cities like Buffalo, Syracuse and Binghamton, the population of young adults fell by more than 30 percent. In Tioga County, part of Appalachia in New York's Southern Tier, 42 percent fewer young...

    Jason Cox/The Leader Corning Inc.'s chairman, James Houghton, and Senator Clinton in 2005 at the company's headquarters. Corning Inc., one of upstate New York's largest and oldest employers, has supported Republican candidates for so long that its chairman once joked that it had not raised money for a Democrat since 1812. But since Hillary Rodham Clinton was elected to the Senate in 2000, Corning and its mainly Republican executives have become one of her largest sources of campaign contributions. And in that time, Mrs. Clinton has become one of the company's leading champions, delivering for it like no other...

Donald Herbert suffered severe injuries when a roof collapsed on him while he was fighting a fire in December 1995. The injury left him brain damaged and unable to speak.

    Factories hummed and consumers kept cash registers busy in the first two months of this year, fresh evidence the economic recovery is moving ahead, according to a Federal Reserve report Wednesday. ``Economic activity continued to expand in January and February,'' the Fed said in its latest survey of business conditions around the country. On the jobs front, however, the report found employment ``growing slowly'' in most central bank districts. A separate survey of chief executives of the nation's biggest companies suggested hiring could start to pick up. One-third of the executives said they expected to increase hiring in the next...
