Tonawanda News — Why is the media making this gentleman that played Tony Soprano, why are they making him a god? He was an actor, played a good part, lucky enough to get such a good part, played it well, but he was still an actor doing his job just like thousands of other actors and actresses. I’m sorry he died so young, but why are they making him out to be a god?

To all of you people who complain about Lindy Ruff going to the Dallas Stars, get over it. He’s with a better team that has the chance to win the Stanley Cup. I think it’s a good pick for him, I don’t care what anybody says. He’s got a better chance of winning there than he had here, the Stanley Cup, because the people in charge and the players that we have, there’s no way we’re going to get a Stanley Cup. No way.

I’m reading your article today concerning Tonawanda Coke and seeing how many times that Mr. Crane has gotten out from underneath his responsibilities. Who’s he paying off is one thing I’d like to know. The problem is he’s done it so many times and these people in Tonawanda think that the town’s going to get $200 million to put in a fund to fix some of this? I don’t think it’s going to happen, he’s going to get out from underneath it and then all that sludge he has been dumping on the ground that’s been seeping into the Niagara River and affecting everybody down the river, and all our water that we drink here in NT because the water treatment plant is down the stream from it, we’re all getting the effects of it and you can’t say we’re not. The thing is, Crane, he must be pretty powerful to get out from underneath all these plants he’s owned. There’s something wrong there.

Just heard on the news that another fertilizer plant blew up in Indiana, now that’s the third one this year. There was only one dead. But the thing is, who owns all three of these plants? Is it the same person or same company? That should be checked into and put in the paper and explained. It’s kind of funny because it reminds me of Tonawanda Coke and the owner there and all the companies he owns and how he went bankrupt and got out of paying his tab, his end, what he should’ve paid, and put in jail. This should be checked out.

I just want to say I think it’s nice that people have so many cars and trailers and their yards will not hold all of these vehicles so they’ll park on the street and partially block off people’s driveways making it very difficult to get in and out of your own driveway.

I was wondering who’s paying for State Senator George Maziarz trip to Arizona to watch Nik Wallenda’s wire walk?
