I think some of these people in Oklahoma kind of misplace their priorities. It seems like a lot of them pay someone like 20 grand to dig a big hole in their yard and build an in-ground pool. Well, you know, if you live in tornado alley maybe you should spend about $5,000 and have someone dig a hole and put in a bunker so you can have a place for you and your family to go in case of such things.

I’m calling about the new pavilion down at Niawanda Park in the City of Tonawanda. If anyone rents that, I don’t know how they’re going to solve this problem. I had some friends that rented it this past weekend for a graduation party and people kept coming in, even though it’s posted, “No public restrooms, private party.” We put our own signs up. And people were still coming in to use the bathroom and wanted to eat -- wanted to eat the food that we had there. And I just don’t know how this problem is going to be solved, but I can see that it’s going to be an ongoing problem that needs to be dealt with very soon. People pay a lot of money, especially nonresidents, to rent that pavilion, and it’s just not going to go over well.
