Bills fans know money, SCORE to the rescue, toy fun...

From Business Today:

Who knew? Buffalo Bills fans really know their stuff whenBillsfans  it comes to money, and we're not talking about ticket prices. Bills fans ran away with the top spot from Visa's Financial Football competition. The online game of financial skills tested general knowledge of personal financial issues. The Bills fans scored 19,574 points, far out distancing the Tennessee Titan's fans, who scored 9,964 for second place. Now... can the fans tackle?

For years SCORE - formerly the Service Corps of Retired Executives - has helped small business people get started and keep their businesses running. The quiet group of big-hearted business people give advice and help with business contacts. Now the national organization is launching a major campaign to help create one million new businesses by 2017. It's a tall order, but the strong corps of volunteers in the Western New York chapter is ready.

Toy Fair, the annual playfest where toy companies show their new gadgets and games is underway Buffalogames in New York City. Two Western New York companies - Fisher-Price and Buffalo Games - are making a splash, as usual. 

The madcap foreclosure stampede going on across the country is bound to have some gaffs. M&T Bank contracted with a company that winterizes foreclosed homes in Pennsylvania, and things went wrong. The company threw out new appliances and damaged the home. Now the homeowners and the bank are trying to reach a settlement.
