Sound Off published Oct. 12

Tonawanda News — I’m a 55 year old veteran of World War II. I haven’t made any comments here in awhile but with the past few weeks’ submissions in Sound Off, I feel I must. First, to the person ragging on the NT DPW workers (again). The one who “seen something real wonderful today.” You didn’t “seen” anything pal. You saw. “They couldn’t even use a tree branch to put it in the back of the truck.” What does that sentence mean? “They used a bulldozer to pick it up.” I have a suggestion for you. Instead of following the DPW workers around, why don’t you take some English and writing classes with all your free time? Now, for the person who stated that Sound Off should be eliminated from the paper, I find it ironic that he used — wait for it — Sound Off to express his displeasure. Perhaps a letter to the editor would have been a better choice. And finally, Barbara Tucker’s column about her and her extended family should be eliminated. Better use of the space would be achieved by finding someone with a sane viewpoint to counter Bob Confer’s blather. Thank you.


I have to agree with a recent submission to Sound Off. When are the North Tonawanda police going to start getting tough with these handicapped hang tags? The law is quite clear that you can only have your tags hanging when your automobile is parked. These people just brazenly drive around every day with their hang tags hanging and the police don’t do anything about it. These people are openly showing their total disregard for following the rules of a civilized society. I suppose they all feel that since they’re mainly elderly people that they’ve followed laws long enough. Well I think this has gone on long enough! If this continues the next thing you know, they’ll be straddling the lines in parking lots and causing chaos for everyone. Fining these scofflaws would send a message to anyone else who considers only following the laws they agree with.
