Tonawanda News — This is in response to the person who wrote about the football fields having kids playing football every sunday and assuming that none of these kids or parents go to church. My son plays football and goes to Mass every single Sunday without fail. I think it’s wrong for this person to assume that everybody there does not practice any religious duties.


You keep talking about the Benghazi attacks, but you’re only repeating what the right-wingers are telling you over and over until you actually believe it because you can’t think for yourself. How about the storm that just went on in the East Coast — Sandy. The president was there immediately. Where was Bush when that storm in Louisiana took place a couple years ago? It was over a week before he made his appearance and he was in an airplane flying over it. Let’s think about it before you knock the president. 


I just moved into North Tonawanda here to Oliver Street, and I gotta say this is a fantastic town. You guys got Oliver Street, Webster Street’s going and happening, and you got a Mighty Taco. It don’t get much better than that. Thanks a lot North Tonawanda.


Can anyone explain why they moved the turning of the clocks back a week into November, which means that the children need to stand out at the bus stops in the dark for an extra week? What was the purpose of that? 


I think it’s about time New York state legalizes the opening of brothels because New York state is in a state of decline. They can make all kinds of money on the sales tax on these brothels.

  • GUEST VIEW: What young people aren't learning in college The results are distressing to say the least. A recent survey found that only 17 percent of college graduates â€" graduates! â€" knew the effect of the Emancipation Proclamation, just 42 percent knew the Battle of the Bulge was fought during World War II, and not even two in five could identify term limits for their senators and representatives.

  • mug - adamczyk.jpg ADAMCZYK: Kenmore is a village made of bricks Buffalo and surrounding environs have brick buildings galore, often in the process of repurpose. Whole neighborhoods made of brick await development, redevelopment, gentrification, whatever wand will be waved at them to make them function again. Structures here tend not to be razed; they fall down occasionally but typically simply stand and wait.
