Tonawanda News — I would personally like to thank Barbara Tucker for the job she did. I was trying to find volunteers in the Tonawandas. Her response was very quick and very thorough. I just wanted to thank her again.

Couldn’t former President Bush change the date for his library dedication? And if not, why couldn’t former presidents Bushes, Clinton and Carter fly in Air Force One from Dallas, Texas, to West, Texas, for the memorial service for the victims of the terrible explosion at the fertilizer plant. I hope this was not politics.

In regards to Syria, I wonder how much they’re going to pay America to stick our noses in their business. Let Iraq and Afghanistan and Russia help Syria. Why does the United States and United Nations always have to do it? I think the United States should just stay out of it this time.

I see where all the bands and entertainment have been established in Niagara County and North Tonawanda. In the City of Tonawanda there is absolutely no form of entertainment. What’s going on? It’s the most boring place there is.

It’s 2 a.m. Remember when traffic lights used to be put on flash that aren’t at major intersections. That doesn’t exist anymore. Now you have traffic lights changing when there’s no traffic around. I thought those traffic light went out 20 years ago. Interesting. That light at Niagara Falls Boulevard goes red for 20 or 30 seconds. My approach is to slow way down so I don’t have to use my brakes. Interesting, why is it changing when no one is around?

The reason you never heard of a trillion dollar debt is because you never paid attention to what Bush was doing.
