I forgot: Brighton was the original home of Wegman’s. It has now opened as far south as Fairfax, Virginia and when I can get there I bring those Zweigles natural casing hots, both red and white, back to Florida. After they begin to pop open we always cut them down the middle and turned them down to finish cooking...memories, they make life and me RICH!
( got to go get the mustard and relish for the white ones too! I always skipped the chopped onions...)

Human Remains Found At Webster Home
Webster, N.Y. - Webster Police say human remains have been found, and they are believed to be that of William Spengler's sister, Cheryl.
Webster Police Chief Gerald Pickering made the announcement Tuesday afternoon at a press conference.
Pickering says the remains were found at the home address of 191 Lake Road in Webster. The chief also says a medical examiner needs to confirm the identity and determine whether the victim was dead before the raging fire. Police say Spengler was armed with a large number of rounds and was "equipped to go to war" and kill innocent people.
Police at this time are following up on leads to determine where Spengler got his weapon.
Chief Gerald Pickering asks that if you have any information, to call 911.

Lt. Mike Chiapperini's wife, Kim: "All I see right now is goodness...their deaths have brought the community together...I take comfort knowing Mike died doing what he loved...My life is richer because of him...three beautiful children...I'm honored to have been his wife...I keep telling myself God needed him more than us....continue to pray for his soul and for Tomasz and for Joe and Ted...Perhaps think of Mike and Tomasz the next time you're serving others. That would touch my soul...I long for the time our souls will be together again."
