    If you’re think that local elections always bring out the worst in people with the mud and muck that campaign workers often hurl you’ll be convinced even more by what’s unfolded in the nation within a nation cheap jerseys in downtown Niagara Falls.

    The gutter sniping tactics have reached a new low as Barry E. Snyder Sr. steps down as president of the Seneca Nation of Indians, the tribe that operates the Seneca Niagara Casino and two other casinos in Western New York.

    Still, the mudslinging continues: the unidentified critic blasts Snyder’s administration for earmarking $18 million for a new fire hall in Cattaraugus (when most communities pay $6 million to $8 million for such a facility); increasing the staff of the http://www.cheapjerseys11.com/ president’s office and hiking the president’s salary $69,000 to $190,000; and for the failure of the Seneca Construction Management Co. to develop any new businesses. A search of the archives turned up nothing which isn’t all that unusual after 144 years. I did find, however, a reference in a magazine which the Lockport based Niagara Publishing Co. carried in the mid 1950s. It seems that Hickok did perform in this area in the summer of 1870.

    The story goes that he had lost his job as the marshal in Hays City, Kansas, through what was then described as “an excess of official zeal.” (Perhaps he was too quick to pull his gun for minor offenses.)

    At any rate, Hickok and a band of Comanche Indians with a half dozen buffaloes, a cinnamon bear and a monkey arrived in July and shortly after it was announced that his Wild West Show, the Great Buffalo Hunt, would have its premiere at a site in Niagara Falls, Ont., close to Queen Victoria Park overlooking the falls and gorge.

    Witnesses said a fence had been constructed around a large plot of ground where the show would be held, an obvious move to prevent freeloaders from enjoying the action. At the appointed time, the fear crazed buffaloes were turned loose with the animals thundering around the arena., followed closely by the hard driving Indians decked out in brilliant war paint and streaming headdress. Someone forgot to chain the bear that took after a hot dog vendor scurrying for his own life. The reporter on the scene ignored the monkey’s reaction to all the chaos but he apparently made a quick exit as well.

    Hickok soon discovered the difficulties a showman can encounter when he takes the show on the road. That’s an average of $892 per claim.
