IT MAKES SENSE TO ADVERTISE

We think there are some pretty good reasons to advertise in our publications, Artvoice, The Niagara Falls Reporter, the Front Page and the South Buffalo News both in print and online editions:

Our job – if I can see straight and hear clearly and understand – is to make advertising and run advertising that is seen and read and heard – and remembered – for its reasonable and compelling truth.

The students of Niagara Catholic had questions for Salva, and he did his best to answer them.  Salva gave an emotional response when he told us we are very lucky to live in America and have many opportunities that others in different countries do not.  When Salva was asked what his favorite American food was he said “whole milk.”  Salva said the people in South Sudan cannot eat three meals a day or have the resources to get water. read more
