How interesting that Obama is still out there campaigning. This time he is trying to resell state’s on Obamacare, the fiasco Obamacare. Does this guy ever stop campaigning? And does he ever give press conferences where people can ask him questions on all the problems he has brought to this country. The answer is no.

This is to the person complaining about the bank robbery at First Niagara on Niagara Falls Boulevard near Kohls not being reported by the Tonawanda News. First of all, it happened in Amherst. This is the Tonawanda News it covers the City of Tonawanda, the Town of Tonawanda and North Tonawanda. Excuse them if they can’t cover the whole country.

I attend council meetings in NT on a regular basis. And I’m a bit annoyed by the snickering that goes on when certain people have something to say during the audience participation. Maybe what they have to say isn’t important to certain city officials but it is obviously important to the person that chooses to get up and speak. So Mr. Andres, let’s show some respect. Because there are a lot of us out here that can’t wait till you are gone as you have done little for the ward that you represent.

  • OUR VIEW: Arson suspect never deserved bail Two of the 11 fires reported on Fifth Avenue could have been prevented with some jurisprudence in evaluating whether the suspect, Michelle Johnston, deserved to be offered bail. Given the obvious nature of a repeat offender who was charged with nine felony arson counts, bail never should have been offered in this case.

  • duvall, eric.jpg DUVALL: On reading and the lack thereof It was surprising to me a few weeks ago when a friend asked a group of us to estimate how many books we have each read over the last five years. The English teacher said 200 and he far and away led the pack. I was probably the median and my number was 20-25.

  • duvall, eric.jpg DUVALL: Conflict in Ukraine now a concern of global proportions It seems increasingly clear Ukrainian separatists, with the help from the Russian military, are responsible for the tragedy. They, of course, have denied it. They've also denied access to the crash site to international investigators seeking to recover the dead and determine what happened. That's not something the innocent party does.

  • ADAMCZYK: Personal development, rendered in steel Accepting the premise that everyone needs to fill the same amount of time every day (24 hours, every day), some people use theirs rebuilding things, tangible things, and thus fulfill a few intangible goals.

  • WALLACE: Festival season is underway Summer is the season of fairs and festivals. From Canal Fest in the Tonawandas to the Allentown Art Festival and Italian Heritage Festival in Buffalo to the Erie County Fair in Hamburg, the Western New York area has no shortage of things to do with the family over the summer.

  • duvall, eric.jpg DUVALL: King George's abdication leaves many questions I've covered Niagara County politics for 10 years and it's been a fascinating -- and often infuriating -- experience. With the news the man known with equal parts respect and cynicism as "King George" is walking away it's about to get more interesting.
