Inside your home - Kitchen

  • Dishwasher – Periodically check for leaks under the sink where the hose connects to the water supply. Look around the base of the dishwasher for evidence of leaks, such as discolored, warped, or soft flooring materials, or water damage to nearby cabinets.
  • Refrigerator – If your refrigerator has an icemaker, make sure the hose connection is securely attached to the water supply line. Also, a wet spot on the floor may be a sign of a crimped icemaker line about to burst.
  • Sink – Replace deteriorated caulk around sinks, and check the pipes under the sink for leaks. A slow-draining pipe may indicate a partially blocked drain that needs cleaning.

Local business adding new services!

Local businessman Eric von Kramer is adding new services to complement his low-pressure roof cleaning business. We will now be offering low pressure house washing, gutter clean-out and gutter whitening.Our main business remains low-pressure roof cleaning to safely melt away the black streaks, algae and moss, that is often seen on area roofs.

This problem is caused by a hearty form of airborne algae that actually feeds off the limestone in shingles. We use the low-pressure process recommended by the shingle manufacturers. The results are immediate and stunning and all work is guaranteed.

It is seldom necessary to use a high pressure washer to clean vinyl, aluminum or painted wood siding, von Kramer states. Our low pressure cleaning is designed to gently clean without damaging your roof or siding. Our patented gutter whitening will bring your gutters back to the "like new" look! We can also clean out the tennis balls, Frisbees, and little maple trees to keep your gutters and downspouts operating properly. All services are offered separately, but as I have seen on TV, it is usually better to "bundle."

Call for an onsite inspection and price. All work is guaranteed to please. Visit our Web site for more information. www.roofcleaningbatavia.com or call (585) 762-9075 or (716) 474-0938.

Believe it or not, I just finished processing the new members for August -- including those who signed up at Summer in the City (that's how busy I've been the past two or three weeks). With everybody entered into the member database, we're at 198 members.

There's no door prize for being the 200th member, but sign up now and your membership card just might read member #200. 

It's a good time to sign up because we will be sending out membership cards and packages of gift certificates Wednesday or Thursday (except to those who already received gift certificates at Summer in the City, who will just get their cards).

A membership in The Batavian Club helps support and sustain The Batavian. Think of it as a subscription, but instead of getting a paper on your doorstep, you get an envelope mailed to you filled with more than $325 in gift certificates to local businesses.

We appreciate you reading The Batavian every day, but in order for us to grow and improve what do, even just to sustain the business, we need your support.

SJS Launches Fund Raising Campaign! Also Calling for Alumni Nominations.

Batavia, NY – St. Joseph Catholic School is pleased to announce the establishment of the All Apostles’ Society, an annual giving society aimed at creating sustainability for the school. Alumni Tom and Jean Lichtenthal have agreed to act as honorary co-chairs for the campaign, which hopes to raise $50,000 by the end of the year.

With the closing of Holy Family School in Le Roy last year, the school has swelled to 300 students from 14 school districts and four different counties. While enrollment remains strong, school officials would like to guarentee the school remains viable for years to come. Principal Karen Green believes the time is right for the school to kick off this initiative.

“We have tremendous support from the church, our families and staff, and the community at large but we want to take steps now to ensure that St. Joe’s will be a vibrant part of the community for years to come,” Green said.

The campaign will be led by Development Director Chad Zambito and supported by the school’s advisory committee including Bryan Winters, a former Holy Family supporter that has made the transition to St Joe’s.

“It was difficult for us to witness the closing of Holy Family but we are very happy with St. Joe’s and want to make sure that parents in Genesee County and the region have an option to provide a Catholic education for their children,” Winters said.

The Lichtenthals both attended St. Joe’s and sent their three children to the school as well.

“St. Joe’s teaches so much more than academics, it gives these children a solid foundation of knowledge, morals and values that they can build on for the rest of their life," Tom said. “We have been involved in committees and fundraisers in the past and are looking forward to helping the school take another step toward sustainability.”

The campaign will kick off with a reception at T.F. Brown’s in Batavia on Aug. 22.

Meanwhile, officials have announced that the 54th annual Popcorn Ball will be held on Oct. 26 and will feature a “Corks and Forks” theme. Nominations are now being accepted for Outstanding Alumni awards.

For more information about the All Apostles’ Society or the Popcorn Ball, call 343-6154 or visit www.sjsbatavia.org.

Tonight Sports Q TV will be at City Slickers filming their sports-center-style show! It's your chance to meet your favorite Buffalo Bills players and as many as 30 players could be there. The party starts at 9:30 p.m. and includes two djs -- DJ Macy Paradise and DJ Konda. The event is for ages 18+ to party, 21+ to drink and sponsored by Mancuso Limo and The Batavian.

Bills gear is encouraged and the restaurant will be open at 4 p.m. for dinner. Due to contractual agreements, player names can't be announced, however several rookies and starters are expected to be in attendance. 

City Slickers has also posted a flier on www.facebook.com/cityslickersbar, which can be printed out and for every flier turned in during the event, $2 will be donated to the Sheldon family in Bergen. Derek Sheldon was killed in Le Roy yesterday in a motorcycle accident.

High Voltage Tattoo has added an additional tattoo booth and another artist.

In response to increasing business, we at High Voltage Tattoo and Piercing have added another tattoo booth and hired another artist. For most of 2013 all of the tattoo artists at the shop have been booked in advance with appointments, so we have rarely been able to accommodate walk-ins. Hopefully with an additional new workspace and another tattoo artist, we will be able to get more walk-ins into a chair.

Jeremy is the latest artist to join the High Voltage crew. Jeremy tattooed in Buffalo for six years and has recently moved to Batavia. We now have five people working full time to better meet the needs of our customers.

High Voltage Tattoo is Genesee County's longest established tattoo and piercing shop. We blend old-school values with modern safety standards. Our tattoo artists create custom artwork, coverups or they can bring your own sketches to life. Our studio is a sanctuary of creative self-expression and we uphold a zero-attitude policy. Each client is treated with integrity and respect.

We are open 7 days a week, so stop in for a new tattoo or piercing or call (585) 201-1127 to book an appointment. Visit us online: http://www.hvolttattoo.com/
