Arvo A. "Gus" Saarnijoki, 96, plant manager, WWII Navy veteran
Buffalo News editorial cartoonist Tom Toles. She formerly chaired the board of Buffalo Friends of Olmsted Park.
Mr. Saarnijoki died Nov. 17 in Cockeysville, Md., where he had lived since 2015. His family said the cause was complications from pulmonary disease and cancer.
Born Arvo August Saarnijoki in Newport, N.H., he earned a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, Mass.
After graduation, he worked briefly for a steel company in Pittsburgh, then enlisted in the Navy. He was sent to officer candidate school at Cornell University, attained the rank of lieutenant and served aboard the destroyer USS Macomb in the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, then in the Pacific through the end of World War II.
Mr. Saarnijoki was wounded in a kamikaze attack off Okinawa and was awarded the Purple Heart.
He came to Buffalo in 1946 to work as a control chemist for the National Aniline Division of Allied Chemical, later Buffalo Color Corp. When he retired in 1985, he was plant manager for operations.
He served on the boards of the Camp Fire Girls of Buffalo and Erie County and the Unitarian Universalist Church of Hamburg.
Upon retirement, he and his wife moved to Bedford, Va., where they built their dream home on a mountain overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. There he was a member of the Bedford County Board of Supervisors from 1988 to 1996 and served as its chairman.
His wife died in 2000, a year after they returned to live in Williamsville. He was remarried in 2001 to the former Mildred Carlson. She died in 2015.
An accomplished carpenter, he was a dedicated volunteer for Habitat for Humanity in Buffalo. He was given Habitat’s Distinguished Service Award in 2006.
Survivors include two daughters, Gretchen Toles and Linda; three stepdaughters, Lynn Carlson, Cheryl Edgren and Nancy Carlson; a sister, Sylvia; three grandchildren and four stepgrandchildren.
A private memorial service was held Nov. 26 in Cockeysville, Md.

When creating pet-friendly gardens, homeowners turn to artificial turf, nontoxic plants
Alisa Wardrup, wellness clinic manager at the Maryland SPCA.
As a member of the garden staff at Valley View Farms in Cockeysville, Marian Andelman makes it her business to plant a variety of perennials in her yard. But with four cats and four dogs, including a new puppy that eats everything, she has had to reconsider the flowers and shrubs in her garden to make sure they are safe for her pets.
"I've had to make selections to avoid toxic plants," says Andelman, who has opted for varieties of hostas, heuchera, grasses and sedum.
Pet owners also need to be wary of some types of mulch, notes Dr. David Tayman with VCA Columbia Animal Hospital. In particular, he warns against using cocoa bean mulch, which can be lethal for dogs if they eat it.
Other hazards in the garden include pesticides and herbicides, which can get on pets' fur and feet. Even if products are advertised as safe for pets, their owners need to be careful, Wardrup cautions.
"Wait several hours after [applying] any pesticide" before letting pets back out in the yard, she says. "Give it plenty of time, even for the pet-safe ones."
Besides being on the lookout for dangers lurking in their yards, homeowners with pets may need some landscaping tricks to create a space that can withstand digging, pacing and urine.
"You have to be sensible with the plants you choose," says Joel Hafner of Fine Earth Landscape in Poolesville. "You want something that can take the abuse."
Doug Del Gandio, an owner of Four Seasons Landscaping and Nursery in Damascus, says he takes into account a number of factors when designing a project for a family with a dog. Besides avoiding toxic plants, he also looks for plants that don't require much maintenance.
"You want to be able to select plants that will survive with water alone or not as much fertilizer," Del Gandio says.
Del Gandio says he sees more homeowners liked the Wards turning to artificial turf in areas heavily used by pets. Some turf is treated to mask pet odors and is easily washable, he notes.
Synthetic lawns also take away the potential problem of repeated exposure to dog urine, which can discolor grass and shrubs. But there are solutions for those who opt for regular grass, as well.
Some landscapers recommend training dogs to urinate in a designated area that is covered with smooth gravel or river rock or a grassy area that can be screened by shrubs. Hafner suggests placing an artificial log in the yard that the dog can use to mark its territory. "They use t... (Baltimore Sun)Apr 22, 2016
Dr. Suhayl Kalash, urologist and associate professor, dies
St. Agnes Hospital who shared his affinity for fig trees with family and friends, died April 17 from pancreatic cancer at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
The Cockeysville resident was 69.
"He was a great physician and he certainly left his mark in the city of Baltimore and he had also taught many urologists all over the country," said Dr. Mouhamad Oussama Annous, a Baltimore vascular surgeon.
"He treated a lot of patients with insurance and without insurance," said Dr. Annous. "When he went home to Lebanon for a visit, people would come and see him and ask his advice, and he never charged a penny. He was a great man and he will be missed."
The son of Saaeddine Kalash, a businessman, and Kawthar Kalash, a homemaker, Suhayl Saaeddine Kalash was born and raised in Sidon, Lebanon.
After graduating from the American University of Beirut, he received his medical degree in 1969 from the university's school of medicine. He completed a residency in general surgery in Beirut.
Dr. Kalash moved to Baltimore in 1977 to pursue a second residency in urology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine while doing rotations at Johns Hopkins Hospital and Sinai Hospital.
"Wanting a better future for his family, he... (Baltimore Sun)Feb 2, 2016
Buzz kill: Advocates seek to reverse trend in honeybee deaths
Bonnie Raindrop, chair of the Central Maryland Beekeepers Association, which is headquartered at Oregon Ridge Nature Center, in Cockeysville. "But we can at least control the sale of neonicotinoids, which are an important element."
Last year, a bill that sought to label seeds and plant material treated with neonicotinoids and to restrict their sale and use, failed. The reason was conflicting scientific testimony, said Lafferty, a Democrat who cosponsored the bill.
"It's still not 100 percent clear that neonicotinoids kill bees directly," Lafferty added. "But it is clear that it impairs bee behavior and makes them more susceptible to disease."
Although the wording of the revised bill hasn't been finalized, it would prohibit retailers, including big box stores and local garden centers, from selling neonicotinoid insecticide, Lafferty said. He added that the bill would not restrict the insecticide's use among farmers.
"The bill would take [the insecticide] out of the hands of the average consumer," Lafferty said. "Farmers have a license and professional applicators for neonicotinoids. We were not prepared to rule out its use by professionals."
Not everyone agrees, however, that the use of neonicotinoids is a primary reason for the sharp rise in Maryland's honeybee deaths, including officials of the Maryland Department of Agriculture and The Maryland Farm Bureau, who opposed last year's bill. They say the science is far from conclusive on the relationship of the insecticide to bee deaths and that other factors, such as habitat loss, are contributing to the loss.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that, in 2015, Maryland lost nearly 61 percent, on average, of its bee hives, versus 42 percent nationwide. The figure was the largest ever in Maryland and the fifth highest in the country last year.
While Maryland's hive deaths have fluctuated over the last 10 years, the trend has been toward colony deaths, with a spike over the last three years, Raindrop said. The 61 percent figure includes a recent, disturbing trend in summer losses, she added.
