Higgins says new train station estimates are way off-track

BUFFALO -- U.S. Rep. Brian Higgins says that after eliminating "the gratuitous padding inserted into the cost estimates for the Central Terminal and factoring in its eligibility for Historic Tax Credits, which are not available for a Canalside station," putting the new station at the Central Terminal would actually be cheaper than a station at Canalside.

Following two requests, Higgins, a member of the Train Station Selection Committee, received a more detailed breakdown of the cost estimates for the different train station options.  After a review of that data, Higgins is sending a detailed memo to fellow committee members outlining why Buffalo's Central Terminal is not only the best choice for Buffalo but the most cost-effective.

Higgins writes, "To succeed, Buffalo needs to build on its strengths, including its tremendous architectural heritage, and needs to make sure that no neighborhood is left behind in its resurgence.  This is a decision that requires vision – a vision for what Buffalo was and what Buffalo can be."
Assemblyman Sean Ryan said "I thank Congressman Higgins for carefully studying the cost breakdown, and revealing an accurate analysis. I and many others have been skeptical of the numbers put out by the consultants, and now our suspicions have been confirmed. The fact that the consultants did not factor in historic tax credits is puzzling. Additonally, the consultants have not factored in the significant amount of money that has been spent on consulting fees which have created a planning blueprint for Canalside. The master plan for Canalside does not involve a train station. Locating a train station at Canalside and throwing away these planning documents would be a waste of time and resources. Bringing the Central Terminal back to life will help to spark investment on Buffalo's East Side. A renovated Central Terminal will be a catalyst for economic growth, just as the Richardson Olmsted Complex has been for Buffalo's West Side. Looking at all the facts, we can see that the Central Terminal is the best choice for a new train station in the City of Buffalo."

Higgins' analysis looks only at the cost for full-capacity train station build-outs at each location.  It also factors in state and federal Historic Tax Credits available only to the Central Terminal.  Below is a comparison:

Train Station Location Consultant's Report Higgins' Analysis
Canalside Option 2: "Modified Tielman" Plan $18,522,533 $18,522,533
Canalside Option 3: "In the Tunnel" Plan $19,708,983 $19,708,983
Central Terminal Option 1 $37,505,808 $17,700,000

Also noted are several factors in the report which skew numbers in favor of Canalside:
  • Report estimates excessive costs for parking at Central Terminal - over $11,000 per spot to create 50 parking spaces.  Total cost of $553,250.
  • Report estimates the cost of moving a water main at Canalside to be only $70,000 when the expense of moving this same line several years ago cost ECHDC more than $2 million. 
  • Report is blind to the fact that if the new station is located at Canalside, the Depew Amtrak station will have to remain, and with that have substantial associated capital and maintenance costs.
  • Report assumes the Lake Shore Limited train (route to Chicago/Boston) would back up for 1.2 miles at Canalside, creating significant delays for passengers and operational constraints that would likely not be acceptable to Amtrak. 
Congressman Higgins goes on to say in the memo, posted below in its entirety, "While I have argued here that Central Terminal is actually preferable from an affordability standpoint to the Canalside options, I have not wavered in my view that this important decision should not be reduced to a matter of mere dollars-and-cents.  The Central Terminal alternative meets those two objectives in a way that Canalside never can…"

The final Train Station Selection Committee meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. on April 20 at the offices of Empire State Development.

EXPLORING THE NIAGARA FRONTIER: The brown creeper – the ultimate in avian camouflage

All WNY News     Thursday, March 30, 2017    


When spring warms up the woodlands here on the lake plains we are blessed by visits from an incredible number of songbirds of an equally incredible number of species.

Long before the colorful warblers make their way through here in May when the trees are leafing out and the warblers’ preferred meals of flying insects abound, our early spring woodlots, which seem drearily brown, are graced by a bird that many might consider equally dreary in appearance – the plain hued brown creeper.

But, as with all things in nature, at a closer glance, you will find that this diminutive feathered friend is, in his own way, just as beautiful as those warblers.

I for one find creepers to be utterly fascinating because their camouflage is bested by only a few in the entire bird kingdom (whippoorwills and ptarmigans immediately come to mind). It is a two-pronged cammo, too – they can make themselves difficult to find by both sight and sound.

Creepers are hard to see


Brown creepers do just as their name implies – they creep. They will fly to the bottom of a tree, creep their way up quite a distance, fly away and then creep up another trunk.

They do this in their tireless search for dinner. Whereas the aforementioned warblers flitter about in warm weather chasing down active flying insects, creepers crawl up trees looking for slow moving or stationary creepy-crawlies in every nook, cranny and furrow of a tree.

Being a slow mover who likes to have their beaks and eyes to the wood, they could be considered fair game to predators like sharp-shinned hawks and weasels. But they aren’t – no one can see them.

Not only are creepers small (5” in length) and slender, they also blend in with their surroundings
perfectly.

While their bellies might be white, they are always pressed against a tree. It’s their backs that are exposed to the rest of the world. Those backs are an excellent streaked mix of browns, tans, and white that match the bark they are climbing. They can’t be seen from behind and you can only hope to catch a glimpse of them from the side, or while flying, to know they are there.

Creepers are hard to hear


Many birders who might not have seen creepers at first are notified of their presence by their unique call. It is a very high-pitched note that bird books say sounds like tsee.

But, at the same time, it is so high-pitched that many other birdwatchers can’t even hear it. Older folks or those who might have worked in a factory can’t hear it at all. It is beyond their range of hearing.

On top of that, the pitch is just right and sung into the tree trunk that the bird is virtually a ventriloquist. Even in a small woods it can be difficult to pinpoint where the sound is coming from.

Where to find creepers in WNY


Brown creepers can be found in woodlands and are most abundant in the early spring when those that had made their way south for the winter are passing through en route to Canada.

Even so, many live here all year.

The creepers prefer to live and breed in older, larger forests, so here in WNY you can find them nesting in fair numbers underneath the same bark upon which they feed (using an unusual hammock-like nest) in the higher elevations, especially closer to the Pennsylvania border.

But, on the lake plains it’s a different story. Past editions of the NY breeding bird atlas show only a spotty presence of nests in Niagara and Orleans counties, perhaps something that be chalked up to smaller forests and more farmland, really restricting the birds’ access to the dead trees (and their insect infestations) that they prefer. When the next atlas is produced, though, I wouldn’t be surprised to see more nesting creepers found in those counties due to the numerous woodlots that have taken over former small family farms.

The good news is that unlike many forest songbirds, the brown creeper’s population has been on an upward trend across the Empire State since 1965.

But, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll see them.

They aren’t rare – as a matter of fact they’re almost common in places; it’s just that they hide well, sporting some of the best cammo out there. So, if you see one this spring, consider yourself lucky…and probably possessed of good eyesight or good hearing.

UB softball splits doubleheader at Canisius

BUFFALO -- The University at Buffalo softball team split their doubleheader at Canisius on Wednesday as the Bulls won the first game in extra innings, 7-6, before falling in the nightcap, 4-3.

The Bulls struck first in the opener on Wednesday as junior Leandra Jew returned to the lineup and she doubled in freshman Jenelle Martinez for the first run.  Canisius answered back by scoring five straight to take a 5-1 lead, but the Bulls continued to chip away at their deficit.

UB added a run in the top of the third as freshman Jessica Goldyn hit an infield single to score Jew.  Buffalo pulled within 5-4 in the fifth as junior Danielle Lallos singled to center field, driving in two runs.  The Bulls finally took the lead in the top of the seventh when freshman Gabby Keller hit a two-run single to center, giving Buffalo the 6-5 advantage.  Canisius tied it up in the bottom of the seventh to send the game to extra innings.

Sophomore Catrell Robertson was placed on second in the eighth as part of the international tiebreaker rule.  She moved to third on a fielder's choice and then came in to score as Bobbi Langlois hit a grounder to short, but the throw to the plate was wide, scoring Robertson with what was the game-winning run.

Junior Charlotte Miller picked up her first win of the season as she pitched 7.0 innings allowing three earned runs.  Sophomore Brieanna Baker recorded her first save as she pitched the eighth.  Jew went a perfect 3-for-3 from the plate, while Martinez, Lallos, and Robertson all had two-hit games.

In the nightcap, Canisius scored three runs in the second off UB starter Taylor Light and added one in the third to take a 4-0 lead before Buffalo tried to make a comeback.

The Bulls put two runners on in the fourth and Miller hit a shot to right field, scoring both runs.  Miller was thrown out at the plate trying to stretch the hit into an inside the park home run.  The Bulls added another run in the sixth as Lallos hit a leadoff double and she came in to score on a single from Goldyn.

Goldyn and Ally Power each went 2-for-3 from the plate in the game.  Baker pitched three innings in relief and scattered three hits, while striking out three batters.

"Tonight we gave it all we had for 15 innings," said head coach Trena Peel. "I was fighting for them and they had my back on the field. We overcame adversity in the first game and they stuck together and finished strong.  I'm proud of Charlotte for throwing a strong seven innings and then BB came in to close it out for us in the eighth. Offensively, I love that our mindset at the plate is better and we are having a lot more quality at bats.  I hope we take this energy and cohesiveness into our MAC series this weekend."

The Bulls will play their first MAC road series this weekend when they head to Toledo for a three-game series.  Buffalo will play a single game on Friday at 3pm and a doubleheader on Saturday beginning at 1pm.

Canisius softball splits with UB to open home slate

BUFFALO -- Canisius junior Moriah Harris went 3-for-3 with a double and a run scored and fellow junior Erika Mackie went the distance and scattered eight hits while fanning five as the Canisius Golden Griffins scored a 4-3 win over Buffalo Wednesday evening at the Demske Sports Complex. The win in the nightcap of the non-league twinbill ended the Griffs’ four-game losing streak, as the Bulls came back from a 5-2 deficit early in game one to score a 7-6 victory in the first game of the day. Canisius is now 12-17 on the season, while Buffalo moved to 6-25 with the split.

In the second game, Canisius scored three times in the second and added an insurance run in the third en route to its first home victory of the 2017 campaign. In the second, freshman Chelsea Czapkowski pushed a run across on a fielder’s choice, and then senior Lindsey Silfer followed with an RBI-single through the left-side of the infield to make the score 2-0 in favor of the home team. The Blue and Gold added a third run moments later when freshman Sue Vi pounded an infield-hit into the turf to third base that allowed Czapkowski to score. In the third, freshman Gianna Degaltini knocked in a run with a single to center that pushed Harris across the plate.

Buffalo scored twice in the fourth and then added another run in the sixth to make the score 4-3, but that was as close as the Bulls would come in the nightcap, as Mackie retired the side in order in the seventh to secure her fifth victory of the year in the circle.

In the first game, Canisius led 5-2 after three frames, but the Bulls scored twice in the fifth and then two more times in the seventh to take a 6-5 lead. In the home-half of the seventh, sophomore Denver Keller was able to beat out an infield hit with two outs, allowing fellow sophomore Lauren Castro to score from third to knot the game at 6-6. In the eighth, Buffalo’s Catrell Robertson scored the eventual game-winning run on a fielder’s choice. Canisius had the game-tying run on third in the home-half of the eight, but reliever Brieanna Baker was able to shut the door on the Blue and Gold’s rally with a pair of fly-ball outs to earn her first save of the season.

Castro had three hits, including a double, in the game one loss, and she also scored a pair of runs and drove in two RBI. Senior Samantha Sharkey and freshman Ashley Barnett also had two hits in the losing effort for Canisius, which finished the game with nine hits. Castro took the loss in relief for Canisius after she allowed three runs, two earned, on four hits in four innings of work. Canisius starter Madi Weathers threw four innings as well, where she gave up four runs, three of which were earned, on seven hits to go with two strikeouts.

Canisius will return to the road to open MAAC play on Saturday, when the team plays at Fairfield. Game one of the league doubleheader is set for noon in Fairfield, Conn.

BUFFALO -- The snow has melted and we are all ready to put winter in the rearview mirror. That also means one of the sure signs of spring: Opening Day at Coca-Cola Field. 
The Bisons are set to open up a very special 30th season at Coca-Cola Field on April 6 as they host the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders at 2:05 p.m.
Tickets
Get your tickets to Opening Day HERE. You can buy your tickets online and avoid the lines at the Coca-Cola Field Box Office by printing them out at home. You can also call THE-HERD (716-843-4373) or stop by the Box Office. Remember, you SAVE $2 on every ticket you buy in advance of game day.
The Bisons Box Office opens at 9 a.m. on Opening Day. If you have tickets waiting for you, it might be a good idea to stop down early to avoid lines at the Will Call window. If your tickets have already been ordered, you can also pick them up on any weekday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., or on Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., leading up to Opening Day
Ballpark Gates and Security Info
All ballpark gates will open at 1 p.m. on Opening Day. So get to the ballpark early, get that first great tasting Sahlen's Hot Dog and get ready for all the pre-game ceremonies.
As a reminder, as part of their commitment to fan safety, the Bisons installed metal detectors at all ballpark gates this offseason. While fans will only be required to remove their cellphone and any cameras before passing through the metal detectors, fans are encouraged to arrive at the ballpark a few minutes early to accommodate. Fans can CLICK HERE for full details of the Bisons enhanced security policy as well as to review what they can and cannot bring into the ballpark with them on gamedays.
Magnetic Schedule Giveaway
Every fan in attendance on Opening Day will receive a complimentary 2017 Bisons magnetic schedule, compliments of Falken Tires. Get yours on April 6, put on your fridge at home and you'll never miss your favorite Bisons promotion in 2017.
Add a Baseball to the Eichel Tower
We already know Jack Eichel is one of the NHL's most elite scorers…now it's time to see if he can throw a strike as well as he can one-time a puck. Eichel gets the ceremonial first pitch honors on Opening Day.
Fans are encouraged to be in their seats by 1:30 p.m. so that they can enjoy all of the Opening Day ceremonies, including Eichel's first pitch and a preview of what's to come during the 30th season at Coca-Cola Field. The team will also hold a special tribute to Larry 'The Peanut Man' Owens and Donald 'The Butcher' Palmer.
Peanut Giveaway in honor of Larry
The Bisons lost a true friend and great ambassador this past offseason with the passing of Larry 'The Peanut Man' Owens. In tribute to his service and what he meant to fans, the first 500 fans that visit his customary spot in the Coca-Cola Field concourse (Section 104) will receive a complimentary bag of peanuts. The bags will be passed out by members of Owens' family.
What's New at the Ballpark
Did someone say Beef on Weck Pierogi? Fried Twinkies? Pulled pork in a bread cone? There are plenty of new delicious food items that will be served at Coca-Cola Field this year. But that's not all that's new in 2017. The Bisons have added a new Themed suite dubbed the 'Celebration Suite' and will introduce a new fridaynightbash! tradition, the Resurgence Brewing Happy Hour.
CLICK HERE to get a full rundown on all that's new at Coca-Cola Field.
Throwback Jerseys
As part of the 30th Season at Coca-Cola Field, presented by Tops Friendly Markets, the Bisons will wear 'Throwback Jerseys' on Opening Day and at various times during the 2017 season. The jersey tops worn by the club will be identical to the ones the Bisons wore during the 1988 season, the first year of Coca-Cola Field.
30th Season Merchandise
Make sure you stop by the Batter's Box Gift Shop or the Bisons Team Shop on Opening Day. The team has several items featuring the new 30th Season logo, including men's and women's quarter zips and ts-shirts.
