I would like to say this to the residents of the City of Tonawanda. Please call your council people and the mayor and tell them that you do not want those houses built up on Little League Drive for the simple reason, if you people don’t know it you should know it, that you’re going to have to pay and make up all those taxes that the people have 35 percent off. You people are having a hard enough time paying your own taxes why should you have to pay somebody elses?

I’d like to see a list of all the schools out there that only cost $5,000 a year for a bachelor’s or associate’s degree. Please print it in the paper so we know and we can get that kind of a deal.

As a daily visitor to Gratwick Park, I wonder why only five of the 18 light posts are working. I’m sure these light posts, with their underground power lines, cost North Tonawanda taxpayers a pretty penny. So it’s a shame that park lovers have to wander in the dark to walk, jog or exercise their dogs. Please help me by calling the powers that be and tell them to change the bulbs.

I just can’t believe how good these kids have it nowadays. If Cuomo has his way, all a kid has to do is go out, break the law, get convicted, go to college, get free room and board. And after two or three years in prison, he gets his education paid for. What a great state we live in.
