Chris is, with a friend he graduated with in 1982, buying one of our iconic restaurants destroyed by fire in May; hadn't got around to posting that; since I didn't think anyone would know who he is. I appreciate your reply.

    October 20, 2017 The Post Journal, Jamestown NY, Editorial Page -Success Is Easy To Overlook "Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce President, Exec. Director, Todd Tranum made it clear our area needs an attitude adjustment. Instead of negatively reacting to potential economic development, whether it be National Comedy Center, Jamestown, or other development, Jamestown residents need to believe it will happen. Lifelong WNYers, with good reason, are sometimes far too negative about the potential of the waterfront and future initiatives. The last five years, Buffalo has turned the corner. It's time we do, as well. Tranum's comments were a small part of what is otherwise a celebration of Chautauqua County. The annual event highlights worthy area volunteers and major economic contributors. This year's economic honorees include expanded, added jobs; and growing. Success is easy to overlook. We do it far too often in society nowadays. The annual Chamber banquet continues a special tradition of highlighting those who make the county great. If you look around; and in the mirror; you will see a lot of those individuals;" published, 2017.
