Tonawanda News — Where were the coupons this year for the shopping spree for Winter Walk? No one seemed to have them. Who won anyhow? Why don’t they have the schedules out for us to know what is what like they used to?

Didn’t Winter walk start out as for both cities? Why do they call if Winterwalk in the Gateway Cities if they are only in NT? What happened to it in recent years? Several people said they couldn’t find it this year.

To the thief that exists on Seventh Avenue: In the 5 years my family has lived here you have broken into our car and stolen wallets, phones, children’s toys and change. You have broken into my garage and stolen birthday presents, tools, lawnmowers and cat food. Now you have come onto my front porch and stolen Christmas presents. Did your mother not teach you any better than to make other people’s lives more difficult? I can’t even decorate for the holidays because you have stolen flags, lawn ornaments and flowers. I have locked all doors or cemented things down and what you can’t grab you simply break. You are an awful, AWFUL demon of a person. I truly hope one day you have children just like you so they can steal anything you work hard for, though I doubt any right minded person would even contemplate procreating with you, you delinquent.

The Connecticut killer killed his mother first; maybe he was getting even with her due to the divorce and his estrangement from the father. The judge in the divorce asked the parents to go to parenting classes; Adam was so withdrawn and quiet in high school that security was notified to look after him, thinking he could easily be a victim. Such serious withdrawal results in removal from reality and feeds anti-social behavior and causes dangerous anger, though not evidenced. Distancing from others includes blaming others for hurts. This is recognized in some psychology reports. How to break through the animosity is the challenge and it can be too late. But it’s not guns, as Adam could have used a bomb as did Andrew Kehoe, killing 38 children, injuring 58, in 1927. Or the school killer last Friday in China — maybe 22 — using a knife. The cry to institute more gun control is a lack of understanding of the problem.
