As a child, I enjoyed, and took for granted, the Crystal Beach boat trip to the park in Canada. The ride on the Comet was gleeful. No more.I am a 78-year-old grandmother. Since it was built I have loved the Skyway. The view on the way out of the city is breathtaking, and the view on the inbound is marvelous. It is a heavenly aerial ride each way.For almost 40 years, the Sk…

By MaryJean Zajac When my older son turned 16 he was eager to get his driving permit to drive a car. My husband was smart and said, “Honey, why don’t you teach him?” So I was delegated to teaching our son to drive. All went well. He listened to me and didn’t have any objections to my brand of teaching. It was not so easy when my younger son was old enough to st…

By Dan Schwartz Greg Kinal was one of my two cooperating teachers for student teaching. He was easygoing and a great history teacher, even if planning didn’t always seem to be a high priority. He’d say something like, “We’re teaching the Erie Canal today,” and as there were often classes that had no books, we’d usually just lecture and discuss the material. I reca…
