June 16, 1962 - Feb. 23, 2018 For as long as Stephen McGonagle can remember, his younger brother, Scott, dreamed of a career in the military. Kenmore resident Scott McGonagle lived out his dream as an air weapons officer in the U.S. Air Force, with deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and across Africa and Europe. "He was always interested in aviation and air weapons, the history and technology of it," Stephen McGonagle said of his brother. "When he first graduated from college and was commissioned, he got a job offer to write military history in the Pentagon, which was a very unusual assignment, but he turned that down to go to Germany." Scott M. McGonagle died Feb. 23 after a battle with cancer in Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. He was 55. A memorial service will be held at 10:15 a.m. Tuesday in Holy Angels Catholic Church, 348 Porter Ave. Scott McGonagle grew up in Amherst and was a 1980 graduate of Sweet Home High School, before attending Ohio … [Read more...] about Scott M.

It’s just under 70 degrees, the Garden State parks are filled with kids playing sports and the adults nurse Starbucks iced coffees while engaging in breezy activism. Yesterday was the Save Our Schools From Guns rally; today is the Earth Day event. About 100 people showed, including Mikie Sherrill, who with her green blouse, turquoise necklace, brown bangs and black blazer could pass for any other mom playing coach and chauffeur as she talks neighborhood reforestation and tomato planting while hawkishly watching her boys chuck lacrosse balls. Still, Sherrill, 46, isn’t some Stepford Wife. After leaving high school in exurban northern Virginia, she graduated from the Naval Academy with prisoner-of-war training that included being punched, smoked-out and waterboarded. … [Read more...] about Mikie Sherrill flew helicopters for the U.S. Now she wants to turn D.C. blue
