Brief blurbs

Some news stories that caught my attention:

The Chautauqua County Legislature has proposed a change to the hiring process, so that the leg. must now be informed of appointments. It seems innocuous, but we'll see what all the varied interests have to say. It doesn't appear to be a separation of powers issue as long as they are just asking for info, but we shall see.

An anti-capital punishment forum was held in the region last week(Buffalo) and there were some interesting perspectives. It is certainly a hard issue to separate economics from law from emotion.

Not law related, but tangential: I work with a few local bands in interpreting contracts and the like, and this article covers some of the daily life that you won't see on "Cribs." Music (and entertainment in general) is a rough business to break into, whether you're the performer or someone working for that 10% cut.

Looks like the set-up at the Big Tree. We managed Ginger Moon, years ago. I am doing some research into undercover buys in Jamestown and found your blog. Nice work!
