Tonawanda News — Has anyone been watching “The Following” on Fox on Monday nights? That station must be desperate for ratings because they have really gone over the line with violence and gore. And after last night, and the two men kissing, we’ve had enough. If this is the kind of program the public wants, tell me what is next?

I don’t have to be a teacher to condemn a teacher. I can condemn anyone I want, if they’re doing the wrong thing. And you teachers are doing the wrong things and you know it. You’re only there for the pay and you don’t give a darn about the kids. You have no compassion. One out of 100 might. But most of you can’t wait to get out of the classroom. And if you’re there til’ two in the morning I don’t know what the heck you are doing there because no one else is there and I don’t know how you got in the building. I don’t know what you’re doing until two in the morning, but you ain’t teaching the kids.

I’m calling in regard to the person who said they know teachers that stay until seven at night and are up until two in the morning. I don’t know where you live but that sure as heck doesn’t happen around here. These teachers are leaving the school the second these kids are out of the classroom. I’ve tried calling my kid’s teacher plenty of times after school. It could be quarter to four and they are already gone. If you can tell me where these teachers live and show me proof I will believe you. Other than that I don’t believe you.

So the City of Tonawanda mayor is telling us what his plans are for the next year. Plans on building this and that. I want to hear his plans on holding the taxes down for at least one year. He has never done that for all the years he’s been mayor. He’s never done anything for the people, to make their lives a little easier. He has done nothing for the people.
