Little House on the Prairie actress visits Greens of Le Roy

post by Howard B. Owens in entertainment, greens of le roy, Le Roy

Information and photos submitted by Kevin Robertson.

Actress Alison Arngrim, who portrayed nasty Nellie Oleson on the '70s television series "Little House on the Prairie" recently made a visit to the residents at The Greens in LeRoy.

The Greens of LeRoy is an independent senior living community and Arngrim was in town as part of the festivities at the Genesee Country Museum's Laura Ingalls Wilder weekend.

The actress took time out of her busy schedule that weekend to give a presentation at The Greens.

"Little House on the Prairie" is a favorite of the residents and Arngrim spoke to them about working with Michael Landon, what it was like to be on a televison show, its longevity and popularity and answered any questions that the residents had.

Following her presentation, Arngrim took time to visit with the residents, take pictures and sign autographs. One resident invited the actress to her apartment afterward to show her an 1800s wheelchair, one very much like the ones used on the series.

Kim Pasquale, director of The Greens organized the visit and said that residents thoroughly enjoyed Arngrim's presentation and were thrilled that the actress stopped by while she was in town.

Photos: The biggest yet Summer in the City

post by Howard B. Owens in batavia, Summer in the City

There were 57 vendors at the 10th Annual Summer in the City yesterday. Don Burkel, Business Improvement District director, said more classic cars showed up than ever before. It's impossible to count how many people were there, but it sure seemed like -- and Burkel agreed -- that more people showed up than ever before.

And it was a beautiful day.

Thanks to the City Fire Department for letting me ride up into the sky over the city in Ladder 15 to get some aerial shots.

Thanks to the dozens and dozens of people who stopped by our booth and said great things about The Batavian, especially the ones who followed up by becoming members of The Batavian Club. Your support is so greatly appreciated. Thanks to Bonnie Marrocco for helping out in our booth. 

I missed Don Carroll's 5K race, so I apologize about that.

Next to our booth, I set up a big U.S. flag that I normally use for awards dinners and took photos of several people who stopped by our booth. If I took your picture and you wish to purchase a print, follow this link.

Woman on Gilbert Street, Le Roy, says stranger with a badge asked to use her bathroom

post by Billie Owens in Le Roy

A caller on Gilbert Street in Le Roy complains that a man wearing "some sort of badge" knocked on her door and asked to use her bathroom. "When she denied him entrance, he started asking about the neighbors." Police will be checking the area to try and locate the man.

UPDATE 7:05 p.m.: Police located the man and spoke with him. He's one of several people canvassing that area, presumably to sell something. The solicitor said they will be leaving soon.
