Tonawanda News — They want to give the illegal aliens a path to citizenship or give them citizenship. What a slap in the face, what an insult to every American man woman and children, to our sons our, our daughters, our sisters, our cousins, our aunts and our uncles who’ve worked all their lives, who worked since the day they were able to work to earn money, pay taxes — paid everything — did what they had to do. They were good citizens! And now they’ll take 12 million illegal aliens and just give them citizenship. Well la-de-da. Maybe, could this be a ploy so that they can elect another Obama? When people who are born and raised here break the law, they go to jail ... What part of illegal doesn’t anybody understand?

I have a problem with these people who have these electric scooters. They’re driving down the street in the middle of the street. They have no respect for the cars, no respect for themselves that they might get hit. Instead of staying near the curb, where they should stay ... I don’t even know if they’re allowed to be in the street. I just don’t understand how they can take up the road and not worry about their lives, and they’re annoying. It seems like everybody has an electric scooter nowadays.

What’s with all the rocks down by the river in the City of Tonawanda. They’re so ugly it isn’t even funny. Even the birds and the animals and the geese don’t want to land on those things.

Hello, I am an avid dog walker and I appreciate the fact that the city opened up the area in Niawanda park between Gibson Street and Two Mile Creek entrance to dogs all year long. However, a large sign at the entrance of Gibson Street says nothing about allowing dogs into the section. I think a welcoming statement would be much better than the negative statement that is there now.

I would just like to say thank you to the special person who found my Cricket phone at Fisherman’s park and turned it into the police station. Thank you and God bless. I have a lot of important phone numbers in there. Thank you.

This is for all those people who think they’re going to get so much money from Tonawanda Coke. As the saying goes: Don’t count your chickens before the eggs hatch.

They’re talking about Obamacare and what it’s going to do and they’re saying it’s not going to make a difference, there’s still going to be 30 million people without health care. So whose pockets are getting fat off this health care plan is what we need to know. So, what’s up? Why are they doing this? Is it just to make money off the fines from people who don’t get coverage?

Ever wonder why our taxes are so high? You see the IRS, where, while you’re under a criminal investigation you’re on paid leave?
