Video: Making Pierogi at Saint John Kanty Church Buffalo

Each year the parishioners of Saint John Kanty Church get together before Lent and make pierogi to sell to the community and parish as a fundraiser for the church…last year they made 5000.  That’s a lot of pierogi!

On Tuesday, I stopped by the church and shot some video as they started preparing the pierogi.

Saint John Kanty is part Buffalo's abundance of classic European style Roman Catholic churches.  It is located in the heart of Buffalo's Polonia on Broadway.

At the core of this church are the great and wonderful people who work very hard to keep it alive.

Buy some pierogi from the experts and help support Saint John Kanty.

Buffalo Still Dealing with Vacant Home Problem

The vacant house problem in Buffalo has been evident for some time with the city's declining population but residents still contact 2 On Your Side with their concerns about homes they feel are dangerous or just an eyesore to their neighborhood.

Recently some neighbors in South Buffalo informed us about a home at 1378 South Park Avenue. There does appear to be some structural problems with the home and some doors and windows are open so that people or animals could enter it.

As it turns out, Mayor Byron Brown spoke of his administration's progress in dealing with vacant homes during his 2012 State of the City Address. He says more than 4.500 homes have been demolished since 2006 with another 1,200 homes rehabbed. Brown says the cost was about $74 Million.

Carter, # 12 got off to a slow start missing his first six shots but he heated rapidly and reached the milestone with 1:17 remaining in the second quarter. Point number one thousand came from the free throw line. Carter finished with 18 points on the night. Head coach John Kudla told Two On Your Side's Stu Boyar "Jamaal's been with me since the ninth grade. He works really hard in practice and has become a great leader for us this season as we have a very young team this year." Case in point, # 10 Howard Washington is an eighth grader who was the second leading scorer for the Centaurs with 10 points.
