Tonawanda News — Having moved from the area and just being back recently, I can honestly say I am ashamed by the ignorance of some people. This is directed at the person who keeps writing in with regards to the Wheatfield budget. How can you possibly say that the enrichment of a child’s education is a cost that you are unwilling to pay? Education is the key to getting this country back on track and you want to strip this from the students? And athletics are the way some students will end up getting a college education. Shame on you.

I cannot believe that someone in Sound Off actually wants the USA to refrain from helping Nigeria find the girls who are missing. What is wrong with you? Girls were kidnapped and are being sold as slaves. They are human lives, of course we should help get them home. If it was your daughter that was taken you would want her back.

I’m a World War II veteran, and I commend the president for sending help over to Nigeria. I think it is just great. Still in the back of my mind I was wondering why we didn’t send help over to Benghazi to help these people over there. Where are the priorities? To help our own people at risk, there is no help sent.

My kids have to go to school on Friday in North Tonawanda until 10:30 so the teachers can have their staff development meetings. Why can’t they have them on Saturdays so I don’t have to run around to find a babysitter. They did it last week to or was it the week before. It’s getting ridiculous.

Smoke on the Water, how do they get away with getting part of the road? It’s wrong. They cannot take a road for their parking. They shouldn’t get a part of the road for their parking. Who do they know in the political arena to get away with this?
