Tonawanda News — There’s another reason why St. Francis is going to be closed that hasn’t been mentioned in the press. Quite simply, it’s politics. Plain old dirty politics. If I’m not mistaken, St. Andrew’s right down the road has a declining enrollment. I don’t know what their finances are like. St. Francis has an increasing enrollment and the finances are in good shape. It all comes down to which priest has a better relationship with the bishop and the diocese downtown. The News should assign an investigative reporter to this. I would like to see the school stay open.
When Mayor Ortt and the Town of Tonawanda complains how much salt they’ve had to use this year, more than last year. Well it’s their own fault. When they have years where they don’t spend so much they should put the money in a bank account and save it for years like this when they need more money. It’s bad planning on their part.
What is wrong with these people. Leave nature alone. Let it survive on its own. I’ve had bats in my house. Many of the houses in this area are old and have lots of tiny crevices where rodents and flying rodents can get in to. Do you not realize bats carry a tremendous amount of germs, rabies, their urine is little tiny white spots? They create havoc in your home. It’s a terrible situation. What is wrong with these people? You want to build a little wooden house in your backyard for bats to live in? Leave them alone. You’re morons. Absolute idiots. I am terribly disappointed. Tonawanda library, are you kidding me?
