Tonawanda News — To the person who keeps complaining about the Dollar Tree store, I go there weekly and I love the store. I love all the new things they have. They get inventory to be put away and the hardworking, attentive people who work there. If you think it’s too dirty, you don’t like the cigarette butts and think the windows need to be washed, why do you go there?

The way it was raining this morning and driving on some of the side streets in North Tonawanda, I really think the city should investigate the sewer system. A lot of these side streets, North Avenue and some of the Avenues, Ruie Road, they were flooded because of the rain. That shouldn’t happen. If you have a good sewer system you shouldn’t have flooding on your streets.

I’m calling in for the people blaming Rick Davis and the new council for these places going out of business. The city doesn’t own these little plazas we have downtown. Developers own them. Mighty Taco had to leave because their corporate office wants all of Mighty Tacos to have drive-thru service and there wasn’t enough room over where they were. If you want to yack at the mayor for something he isn’t in charge of, it isn’t right. He’s trying to clean up eight years of Pilozzi’s junk.

Don’t you just love the teachers of North Tonawanda who get up at a board meeting and ask the board not to cut anymore programs when in fact they’re asking not to contribute to their medical coverage like the rest of the world does. They can’t do that? Give me a break. Teachers, wake up. It’s the real world.

The guy with the Time Warner item in the paper, I agree. It has irritated me for a long time. Also, the mummy advertisement for the Buffalo museum, I think it is in poor taste.
