Was kelly turner, tom kelly, denise maryknowski, justin fentress and dick vandyke all standing there with a fire hose? How many more fires before they fix the downtown. They are riding for the biggest fall in politics when election rolls around. Big Daddy and Co. are not putting the money in town improvements at all. They are giving it to their friends. Get wise, folks, this is what is happening.

Downtown Lockport bar burns down
by Jon DePaolis
February 25, 2012 | 11:53 AM

Another business in the downtown district of Lockport burned down late in the morning Saturday, Feb. 25.

Jackie's Pub, located at 1016 S. State St., caught fire around 9:45 a.m. The cause of the fire is not yet known.

Lockport Township Fire Protection District firefighters were on scene to extinguish the fire. Smoke was still coming out of the roof of the building after 11 a.m.

The owner of the building, John Graves, said he was notified earlier in the morning about the fire. He said he was unsure of the cause of the fire.

"[Officials] are guessing it might be electrical on the outside of the building," Graves said. "But we don't know yet. We'll wait for the investigator."

Graves wasn't yet sure of how extensive the damage was or whether or not the building could be salvaged.

The fire district wasn't immediately available for comment.

More updates will be posted throughout the day.

Let's be perfectly clear.

The responsibiltiy to fix this building is 100% on the shoulders of the building's owner.

That person is John Graves.

His name isn't Taxpayer's of Lockport.

Why don't you shut up, grow up and get lost. Every one of your posts is the same old stupid remark. By the way my name is Pete Colarelli and my best buddy is Kelly Turner and we are the only reason Lockport sucks. There, I did it for you. Go change your diaper.

Give it up Big Daddy, you know you are posting and spinning. We all know you. Don't like to be reminded of your past faults. Too bad, we are keeping the reminders up. You are the one who sucks! You were naughty and it caught up with you. Had to bring Pete into the conversation, just can't help yourself. No the town is at risk because of the majority and the water issues. You are at fault, all the way!!!!!! Try another name, Big Daddyo.

We are sorry about your son and those who lived there and pray that they find a home quickly.

People talk about the bar not out of disrespect to your son but because 99.9% of Lockport only knows there is a bar there.

This is Turner again stealing names. He is so apparent. He thinks he is clever but he is not. We will call him out every time. Big Daddy is nuts!
