United States: Not Irv Weinstein’s Buffalo any more

By Paul Knowles (First published in Metroland Community Newspapers)

“Irv Weinstein.” Those of a certain age will know that name – the television news anchor who hosted Eyewitness News on Buffalo’s WKBW for 34 years, until 1998.

By Paul Knowles (first published in

Now, to be fair, the resort is only about a 20-minute drive from several beaches on the Atlantic, but that’s not the reason people come here.

By Paul Knowles

Waterloo Region residents who visit San Jose, California, will probably feel quite at home, very quickly. The two communities have a lot in common – except for the southern California climate, of course.
