Local Powerlifter is Training Other Athletes to Win

In his early teens, Steve Helmicki considered himself a bit of an undersized football player, which led him to begin training in his parents’ attic with a DP vinyl and sand weight set and a Bill Grant fitness manual. While countless other young athletes might have a similar story to tell, very few — if any — have ever taken it quite as far as Helmicki.

Local Descendants Tell Story of Connection to Katyn Massacre

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- A crowd of over 100 people viewed the Oscar-nominated film "Katyn" at the Central Library in downtown Buffalo this Sunday.

The screening of the film coincided with the closing of the traveling exhibit entitled "Katyn. Massacre. Politics. Morality" on view at the library through Monday morning, Oct. 18. 

The exhibit contains a panel of U.S. born victims of the massacre, in which over 20,000 Polish officers and other leaders were murdered by the Soviets in 1940. Two of the massacre victims were Buffalo natives, Reserve Lt. Henryk Franciszek Adamski and Sgt. Major Wincenty Blaszak. A copy of Adamski's baptismal certificate next to his photo lists him as living at 919 Clinton St. in Buffalo and having been baptized at St. Peter and Paul Church.

Peace Bridge to Honor Blessed Mother Teresa

A well-known international landmark will be aglow on the evening of August 26 in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Blessed Mother Teresa.

The Peace Bridge, which spans the Niagara River between Buffalo and Fort Erie, will be illuminated in blue and white, the colors of Blessed Mother Teresa’s order of women religious, the Missionaries of Charity.

Blessed Mother Teresa traveled the world, helping the poorest of the poor. During her lifetime, she brought her message of love and compassion for the destitute to Ontario and Western New York. The sisters of her order continue to minister where there is the most need. They are in Canada, the United States, and around the world, working in homes for the dying, in orphanages, and in hospitals.

The Vatican is currently considering Blessed Mother Teresa for sainthood.
