25 Years Ago Oct. 15, 1992


HERITAGE INN FIRE — Originally constructed around 1845 as the bookbindery for the Ebenezer Society, the building that stood at 1954 Union Road at Indian Church Road housed numerous businesses in its lifetime. Its final incarnation as the Heritage Inn Restaurant, run by the Goszewski family, came to a tragic end on April 29, 2004, when it was destroyed by fire.

Specifically, many in the audience were against moving high school students from West Seneca East to West Seneca West after a student has started at East. Melissa Kimaid, a sophomore at East, asked the administration and school board to consider phasing in the redistricting plan starting with eighth-graders entering high school next year because of the effect the switch would have on student activities and learning.

• The West Seneca Library again faces cuts to its hours and programs. That is news, but not entirely new. What Library Director Jonni Moore wants the public to know is that a plan is floating around the legislature to put at least a temporary stop to the erosion of the library line in the Erie County budget. The idea, which stems from the downtown library board, is called the Library Protection Act of 1992. The act would establish a separate library tax, which could not be used for anything else. The law would not increase taxes, according to Moore, but would safeguard funds which the legislature has approved.

• A Charlescrest Court woman told police she awoke to find a “Tim Greenan for Assembly” campaign sign she had posted on her lawn burning.
