Tonawanda News — As a Republican, it’s time like this I wish I was a Democrat. My neighbor showed me the mailing Jackie Smilinich sent out. It’s just dirty politicking. I wouldn’t vote for her at all if that’s the way she gets her votes. If I were a Democrat I’d be out there on Primary Day voting against her.

I had to comment on Saturday morning’s Sound Off on 18- to 21-year-olds having to hide in garages because they couldn’t legally drink. Seriously? You’ve got to be kidding. I can only wonder what kind of families they are if everybody has to drink to socialize with one another. How very sad and disturbing.

So these politicians in the City of Tonawanda want to close part of Young Street down so that bar can have people park in there? I’d like to have part of Morgan Street closed down. I have company in the wintertime and in the spring and they have nowhere to park. Think you can do that?

The person Aug. 21 who wants their bike returned that was stolen and even gave the lock combination, why wasn’t it locked up in the first place?

Where are you? I’m a resident at a local nursing home. You said you would visit me. I’ve been here for two years. You say you are a Christian. Christians visit people. Are you sure you are a Christian?

I enjoyed the article written by Donna Neal written last week about the carrousel museum. Also, a little trivia. Do you know the different between a carrousel and a merry-go-round? A carrousel goes counter-clockwise and a merry-go-round goes clockwise. Just thought you’d like to know that little bit of information.
