Tonawanda News — Wayne’s thoughts are well taken and as for me, I agree. From age 16 until I married, I hunted with my brothers, dad and uncles and enjoyed it. We would target practice with clay pigeons, learned how to care for and use a gun and we didn’t need the NRA. Parts of the gun law are legitimate but the fact that is was jammed through so quickly, “shooting from the hip,” so to speak, makes one wonder about the politics of the law — is it for the good of the people or for the good of the politicians?
The second topic began with a call from a member of St. Peter’s United Church of Christ in North Tonawanda which, four years ago, joined in the carrousel project to paint and put up carrousel horses on Oliver Street. The pole went up, the horse was painted and sent to be stored in the garage of Larry and Linda Soos. Since that time, the church has been trying to find out what happened to their horse, which they jokingly say is being “held hostage.”
An email to Mayor Ortt brought a return phone call from Scott Kiedrowski, city clerk, who said he’s been on the trail of the lost horse for several years. He complimented the Oliver Pride Group on the carrousel effort and contacted Larry Soos who said he had the horse but was waiting for more horses. Scott also said he tried to find out where the horses came from as the city has offered to buy another horse for the church to paint and be put up. All to no avail.
This story seems unbelievable and hopefully, Larry will call and solve the mystery as we were unable to reach him last week.
Lastly, and hopefully, the end of the story on “How big is a trillion?”
