Tonawanda News — So I see that the husband of a newly elected NT council member has appointed her husband on the NT zoning board. Well that didn’t take long did it.

Hey if you don’t speed and you slow down when you see a yellow light, instead for trying to run it, you won’t have to worry about the new red light cameras (money grab to some).

Instead of the post office passing the cost of the three cent stamps to us. I feel that the employees should take a cut in pay. And while they’re at it, the government should take a cut in pay, the politicians should take a cut in pay. The rest of us are taking cuts so why shouldn’t they.

The potential cameras at signal lights project is in the City of Tonawanda not the town. And one major addition to needed repairs and improvement projects in the city is the rebuilding and repaving of Niagara Street after the sewer project is completed.

Just wondering when the city of North Tonawanda is going to flood the hockey rink at Christiana Field. We finally have some nice cold weather for making ice and a place to skate. When do they plan on filling it, when it’s 40 degrees and we can’t use it.

It’s really nice that the North Tonawanda Parks Department has a leader now that is a go-getter. He’s getting everybody working. They work and they earn their pay. They just don’t sit around, the old-timers anymore, and get their pay and don’t do anything. I am so happy as a resident and a taxpayer of North Tonawanda.

The Catholic churches still give out free calendars. I’m sure if anybody stopped in to their office, they would gladly give you one. So if you are looking for a free calendar those are the only places I know that are giving them away.
