The Tonawanda News

Tonawanda News — On Thursday night my wife and I were walking at Gratwick Riverside park when a man launching his boat had a mishap and his boat trailer and truck was pulled into the river. Two local boaters helped tie the truck to the dock to keep it from drifting into the river when a man in a white Jeep pulled up with a long tow strap and was able to pull it back out of the water. 


I read in the paper that Sam Iraci is working as a consultant in Lockport for labor negotiations. I think mayor Ron Pilozzi has a little explaining to do. Whose watch is he doing that on and why is it ethical for someone who doesn’t even live in the city to negotiate for our city and for other cities? I think it’s a waste of taxpayer money and it should be somebody who lives in the city.


It’s obvious that Walmart doesn’t do any form of background check when hiring employees as evidenced by the so-called manager who was caught stealing credit cards. Everyone said this store would bring jobs to North Tonawanda. But this alleged crook was from the West Side of Buffalo. What’s next? Stabbing, shootings, punched in the face or being trampled to death? You take your life into your hands when you enter the store because you have no idea who these people are or where they come from. 


The Buffalo News doesn’t have a clue. First they headline a problem with the Bills instead of the tragedy in Libya and Egypt. Then they feature Curtain Up. How many people in this area can afford to attend Curtain Up?
