Meet Champ!

Meet Champ!

Poor Champ has been at Lollypop Farm more than once in his life, most recently because his owner could no longer afford to care for him. He is an 11-year-old Chow Chow mix who will stick to you like Velcro - he loves being around his owner. He likes back scratches and chin rubs, and will gladly keep you company any night of the week! He has a great smile, too. Lollypop Farm recommends Champ go to a home with kids age 10 or older, and he needs to meet any dogs already in the home. Lollypop Farm is celebrating Spring Break with 25% off adoption fees on all cats and dogs through Saturday the 19th. Champ is also eligible for the Seniors-for-Seniors program so approved adopters age 60 or older can bring him home for free. To find out more about Champ, call 223-1330 or visit him at Lollypop Farm at 99 Victor Rd., Fairport 14450. Lex, our "Friday's Friend" from last week, is still available!

Update: Daniele family can bid on Clover Lanes

It's a prime piece of real estate that's been caught in the middle of a court battle. Now there are a new set of plans possibly in the works for Monroe Avenue.

Earlier this month, Delta Sonic announced it wanted to buy Clover Lanes, which is located next door to Mario’s Restaurant. But the Daniele family, which owns Mario’s, says they’ve been waiting for the property to go up for sale for years and have plans of their own.

They took their complaint to court and won.

The Daniele family says they are happy to be back in the game. They say they've had plans to purchase and develop the property for years and now they can finally move forward.  

Danny Daniele, Mario’s Italian Steakhouse, said, “The courts ruled in our favor that we can now go forward."
