Daemen Earns National Best Value School Designation

Daemen Earns National Best Value School Designation

Daemen College has been selected by University Research and Review as a 2017 Best Value School award recipient, making it one of fewer than 100 institutions across the country selected to receive this prestigious national designation.

“We are honored to be chosen for this distinguished award and to be recognized for our exceptional educational value,” said Daemen President Gary A. Olson. “With college costs currently at the forefront of New York State higher education, this distinction attests to the affordability, high quality, and academic excellence of private colleges like Daemen and is indicative of our rising national status.”

One of only three colleges in New York State named among this year’s honorees, Daemen joins other notable institutions such as Ohio Northern University, Mercyhurst University, Benedictine College, and Mount Aloysius College.

Important Facts about Filing Late and Paying Penalties

April 18 was this year’s deadline for most people to file their federal tax return and pay any tax they owe. If taxpayers are due a refund, there is no penalty if they file a late tax return.

Taxpayers who owe tax, and failed to file and pay on time, will most likely owe interest and penalties on the tax they pay late. To keep interest and penalties to a minimum, taxpayers should file their tax return and pay any tax owed as soon as possible.

Here are some facts that taxpayers should know: 

Erie County Parks, Land Conservancy Collaborate to Create New Natural Habitat Park Along Lakeshore

Erie County Parks, Land Conservancy Collaborate to Create New Natural Habitat Park Along Lakeshore

Last spring, a generous landowner donated a beautiful eight-acre forest on a bluff overlooking Lake Erie in Derby to the Western New York Land Conservancy. The Land Conservancy is a nonprofit land trust that protects forests, farms and scenic vistas forever; including places like the Stella Niagara Preserve in Lewiston and The Owens Falls Sanctuary in Aurora.  

There is very little natural land like this left along the Lake Erie shoreline. The forest has trees that are more than 100 years old. Many birds find food and shelter in these trees during their long spring and fall migrations. Scattered wetlands provide habitat for frogs, toads and salamanders. It will be a great place to take a walk, enjoy nature and marvel at the spectacular sunsets over Lake Erie.

Commentary: Let’s Start a Community Discussion About Mental Illness

While we may not like to talk about it at the dinner table, mental illnesses are real and prevalent in our nation, and approximately half of us will have a mental health diagnosis at some point in our lives. And what better time to talk about it than during May, which is also known nationally as Mental Health Month.

It’s no secret that all Americans experience times of difficulty and stress in their lives, and you and I are not exempt from the problems of daily life. When our troubles begin to overtake our mental health, we should all feel comfortable in seeking help and support to manage these times in a compassionate, judgement-free way.

It is a time when more people take to the roads and sidewalks and revel in warmer weather.  Despite the vibrant colors of the flowers, the sound of children playing outdoors, April is also Distracted Driving Awareness Month – a month in which we also face the grim reminder that distracted driving is as dangerous as ever.
