Tonawanda News — Thank you to whomever is responsible for the new sign at the Webster end of Project Pride Way. The one on the Manhattan side is looking seedy again. And the stone or concrete “fence” after the wall of the two buildings at the Webster end look dreadful. How about a coat of paint to make them look welcoming instead of dismal?

If we opened a privately-owned recreation center anyplace in New York state, we’d have to pay permit fees and inspection fees for every kind of work needed before we could open to the public. How dare the City of North Tonawanda open Memorial Pool and endanger my grandchildren’s lives by not having an electrical inspection done on what they knew was “old” wiring?

Another article about how woman are not being treated well. To hear the so called news media one would think Hobby Lobby refuses birth control for women when in fact they pay for 16 forms of control but they like many others do not believe in the pills that cause abortions. Where does the right of the owners come in? Here’s an idea. If you think they are so unfair, go somewhere else to work. They pay twice the minimum wage with full health insurance yet they are being demonized. As a 60 plus year old woman I cannot believe how women have come to believe that everyone must take care of their every need. Grow up. Want the abortion pill, pay for it yourself.

All these jobs are coming to the area, there must be a lesson here.
