Tonawanda News — NT wants to cut more in their budget for the schools. Why don’t they cut people out at the board of education? They make all the good money, the high money. Why don’t you cut some of those jobs and save money?

Whoever lined up the relay through the park has gotta be an idiot. People were trying to get out of their driveway and they were stuck in there. They paid a lot of money for that property and they really don’t like to be held up like that.

The thing in Gitmo with all the prisoners in there sitting there striking and not eating. How I feel, it might be inhumane, but if they don’t wanna eat, let them starve to death. Every one that dies we save $1 million in taxpayer money. If they wanna die, let them die.

I went to Sears to buy my news shirts, it’s spring time, and my shirts are made in Bangladesh. And my shirts are made from recycled plastic bottles, in Bangladesh. And I watched and I seen on television, little kids in scrap piles in Bangladesh picking the plastic bottles out of the garbage because the plastic has so much value in Bangladesh. They came up with a way to make shirts, real nice shirts, out of recycled plastic. It’s just amazing.

I’d like an answer from the NT school board. As a taxpayer, I’d like to know why my school taxes go up every year, but teachers’ jobs have been cut and students education is way down. If they could please give me an answer on that I’d really appreciate it.

I’d like to know why they have the “No Fishing” sign in Gratwick Park, on the docks. We pay taxes just like the boaters pay taxes. Oh, but my line gets around their props? That is the biggest farce there is. That is steady water going through there. We pay for those docks also. We should be able to fish on those docks. There are less and less places we can fish on the Niagara River. That sounds kind of stupid, putting up a sign like that.
