Elmer Ploetz Shifting Gears

There are some major changes, good news division, in store for (soon to be former) Buffalo News reporter Elmer Ploetz, who will be hosting a happy hour from 6-8 p.m. today, Friday, August 1, at the Sportsmen's Tavern, 326 Amherst Street near Grant Street in Buffalo.
Ploetz, a great guy as well as a very good reporter and writer from topics such as straight news to music and culture, is leaving The News after 23 years to become a full-time professor and get the journalism program going at Fredonia State College. The News' loss will definitely be Fredonia State's and the students' gain.
As well as food and lots of friends and colleagues, Ploetz notes that some form of the Steam Donkeys will be playing at the happy hour (or two, or three hours), and "there may also be some pseudomusical surprises."
