Bringing You All the Updated News of Buffalo's Past. Time Travel Through Buffalo History as Old News Becomes New Again. (2nd edition)

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

night last the city was visited by a most tremendous gale, which, for destruction of life and property has no parallel in this part of the country. The gale commenced blowing from the southwest about 12 o'clock (midnight) and in less than half an hour the whole lower part of the city south of the canal from Black Rock to the Hydraulics was submerged in water from two to eight feet in depth. On the east side of the city the water came as high as Seneca Street below Michigan and completely covered it. So rapid was the advance of the water that we are told by an individual residing on the other side of the creek, being awakened by the noise of the wind, and anticipating a rise in waters, hastily aroused his family, and before he could get his pantaloons on, the water was over three feet deep in the house.
who was on Main street near the bridge represents the water as coming up in one huge wave of about four feet in depth. Houses were blown down--unroofed--cellars flooded; in fact the great amount of damage done almost instantaneously.
Ed. a long list of people of when, where and how they were found, which I shall not repeat here.... Needless to say the suddenness of the storm and the wave of water filled up basements and first floors in a matter of minutes and in some cases, seconds, leaving no chance of escape for sleeping tenants. At Huff's hotel, at the corner of Main and Scott streets, the water was six feet deep! Many were just swept into the Lake.

In the late 60's we had a similar weather pattern and the lake rise was about 10.5 feet. At time it was equal to the record rise.I was on the Derrickboat McCauley and we moored at the Genesee slip away from the warehouses. We raised the spuds and ran lines for an aft as long as wwe could make them to allow the boat to ride easily. We dropped 12X12 timbers into the space between the boat and the concrete fae of the dock, It got ground and shredded to pulp in a couple of hours.We used 3 inch nylon towing line to moor botht eh McCauley and te Tug Nash and during the night I had to wrap some parts to slow the chaffing that threatened to sever them.The winds and the wate were so intently threatening I stayed over and worked straight through the night. The two night watch people threatened to go home if I didn't stay with them.But I admit I was pretty edgy through the whole process too.

The old market town of St. Albans, in Hertfordshire, lies on a hill above the left bank of the River Ver and attracts particular interest because of its 14th-century Abbey Gateway, part of the large Benedictine Monastery at St. Albans that once dominated the town. Also historic is the old Roman settlement of Verulamium, the first formalized Roman municipality in Britain. The town, in fact, owes its name to St. Alban, a Roman mercenary, who was converted to Christianity and suffered a martyr's death in AD 304.

In addition to visiting the tourist attractions associated with the town's rich history, there are many other fun things to do here. Those who enjoy shopping flock to the Christopher Place Shopping Centre , just a short walk from the cathedral, while the Maltings Mall offers a theater and numerous dining options. Sports enthusiasts are well catered to as well, with numerous hiking and biking trails crisscrossing the city and the surrounding area, along with traditionally popular activities like cricket, rugby, and football. A good place to visit for those who enjoy water-based activities is nearby Stanborough Lakes , a 126-acre water park with excellent sailing and rowing.

St. Albans Cathedral

St. Albans Cathedral sits on the oldest site of continuous Christian worship in Britain. Alban, the first martyr, was buried here after giving his life for his faith more than 1,700 years ago. Built in 1077, the cathedral boasts a total length of 556 feet, making it second in size only to Winchester Cathedral.

Inside the west entrance are a few bays in early English style, with five more on the south side of the nave. Remains of 13th-century frescoes, including a notable depiction of the crucifixion, are on the columns flanking the north side. A beautiful wooden coffered ceiling spans the lay chancel, separated from the nave by a 14th-century rood screen. The large gatehouse on the south wall, the Abbey Gateway, was built in 1361 and is all that remains of the former monastery.

Other features of note include the Monks' Chancel , roofed by ribbed vaulting featuring painted ornamental stucco dating from 1461, and the altar wall at the east end, with its many fine statues. The Saint's Chapel (1315) houses the tomb of St. Alban, while the tomb of St. Amphibalus, who converted St. Alban to Christianity, is on the north wall of the gallery.

Seven national fast-food chains have agreed to end policies that block workers from changing branches -- limiting their wages and job opportunities -- under the threat of legal action from the state of Washington.

Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson announced binding agreements with the companies -- McDonald's, Auntie Anne's, Arby's, Carl's Jr., Jimmy John's, Cinnabon and Buffalo Wild Wings -- at a news conference Thursday. McDonald's had previously announced plans to end the practice.

The so-called no-poach policies prevent franchises from hiring workers away from other franchises of the same chain. That's been convenient for franchise owners, who sometimes worry about workers they've trained jumping to nearby branches.

But it has also blocked experienced workers at one franchise from getting better-paying jobs at others, potentially keeping tens of thousands of employees around the country stuck in low-wage positions.

Without access to better job opportunities at other franchises, workers have less leverage to seek raises in their current positions, Ferguson said.

"Our state antitrust laws are very clear: Businesses must compete for workers the same way as they compete for customers," Ferguson said. "You can't rig the system to avoid competition."

In separate agreements filed Thursday in King County Superior Court in Seattle, the companies denied that their policies are illegal, but said they wanted to avoid expensive litigation. McDonald's said it was pleased to work with Ferguson's office.

"We believe everyone at McDonald's has an opportunity to grow and progress throughout their career," the company said in an emailed statement.

Ferguson credited the businesses for quickly agreeing to end the practice nationwide in response to his legal threats and said fast-food chains that don't follow suit will be sued. The seven chains have more than 500 locations in Washington.

The no-poach policies have been increasingly criticized by Democratic attorneys general and federal lawmakers. Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Cory Booker of New Jersey wrote to the Justice Department last November expressing concern about their potential illegality. On Thursday they sent a letter to 90 business franchises -- not just fast-food companies, but also mail services, fitness chains and more -- seeking information about whether they have similar practices.

A coalition of 11 Democratic state attorneys general, led by Maura Healy of Massachusetts, this week announced a separate investigation into the no-poach agreements at several chains, including Arby's, Burger King, Dunkin' Donuts, Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Little Caesars, Panera Bread, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen and Wendy's.

New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said on Monday that New Jersey officials and representatives from other states, sent a letter Mondayasking chain operators for records detailing how they restrict employees' ability to move from store to store.

"In the fast food industry, no-poach agreements can limit a worker's future job prospects and restrict his or her earning potential, which is not only unfair to the worker but can harm the state's economy," New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said ina statement announcing the move.

Robert Cresanti, the president and chief executive of the International Franchise Association, said in a letter to lawmakers last month that many chains have already abandoned no-poaching policies.

But, he said, it remains important to protect the rights of the franchise owners as well as workers, and that such policies may remain necessary to protect training methods or the investment a franchise owner has made in training. In such cases, the policies should be applied in a limited manner so as to not restrict workers more than necessary, he said.

"IFA is confident that there can be a solution that protects brand value and, at the same time, ensures that a new generation of unit employees will continue to grow and advance, benefiting unit employees, franchisees, and franchisors alike," Cresanti wrote.

Ferguson said his office began investigating early this year, prompted by a New York Times article detailing how such policies had stifled wages for fast-food workers.
