There's nothing like getting rid of your old baggage, and "The Shredd & Ragan Show" on 103.3 FM (The Edge) did just that last week when they crushed a van filled with old Bills and Sabres memorabilia.
I touched on the Karma Van on Monday in a column on how the region finally seems willing to let go of our loser mentality and talked to Shredd and Ragan this morning about why we tend to overlook all that Buffalo has to offer.
The Cheektowaga Town Board tonight is expected to make a recommendation to the four school districts located wholly within its boundaries to consider consolidating in some fashion to reduce the tax burden on town residents.

Home is where the heart is, but in the summertime the spirit wants to wander. The Buffalo News would like to hear about your favorite summer places, those special spots that come alive during long days, under warm sun and with the liberation of vacation.
Is it a favorite beach on a lake or river? Do you love being at the top of a roller coaster, or turning somersaults in the pool? Does Thursday at the Harbor call to you, or are you happiest with an early morning tee time?
Whether it’s camping, barbecuing or lying on a beach towel, we would like you to tell us what Western New York spot makes your summer shine. Send a brief description of your favorite place and why you like it to firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Summer Places” in the subject line, and please include your name and phone number in case we want to learn more.
Our Summer Places story, with photos, will appear in The Buffalo News’ Sunday Spotlight section on Labor Day weekend, as a last hurrah to what has been a hot but glorious season.
