Trump seems to think that he’s above the lawI recently enjoyed a performance of the play “The Madness of George III.” Today I am struck by life imitating art. The madness of our president has descended on our government, country and people. However, Trump’s madness is real and the humor dissipates watching this drama unfold.Our president has shared classified infor…

In climate change debate, let’s err on side of cautionThere are two main groups in the discussion of global warming. On one side are those who believe global warming is occurring, and on the other side are those who think global warming is a hoax.Those believing the global warming threat is real base their conclusions, in part, on the wealth of scientific information. Th…

Trump is not worthy of our highest officeI am a senior citizen. I am worried about our nation and its leadership and the chaos that is happening. President Trump is the president of all the citizens of the United States of America, and he should act in a manner that is worthy of this nation’s highest office. He has not.His notorious Twitter rants about the size of the cr…

Curious to hear results of Collins’ ethics probeI am very interested in the results of the ethics inquiry regarding Rep. Chris Collins. After reading about the people in this area who invested in Innate Immunotherapeutics, I thought they must know something I didn’t, so I got on the bandwagon and invested. However, I have only lost money up to this point, so I am wonde…

Mercy Hospital staff does an incredible jobA friend would say, “the only mercy to be found at South Buffalo Mercy Hospital is on its signage,” a sentiment often echoed by an outspoken Franciscan friar. From him I learned to verbalize my own sentiments about the facility, which I now regret.I was born there and have since spent some time as the beneficiary of its healin…

Rejection of pipeline was a serious mistakeIt’s no surprise to me that National Fuel Gas Co. was recently rejected to build the Northern Access pipeline from Pennsylvania to Canada. Even though National Fuel seemed to have done its homework by complying with the numerous Department of Environmental Conservation requests, it just didn’t get it right. According to Gov. A…

Circumstances demand nonpartisan investigationThere are many issues surrounding what has been determined as fact (not fake) that Russia at least attempted to affect our democratic election process. People close to President Trump had ties with Russia, including Jeff Sessions, Rex Tillerson, Michael Flynn, Carter Page, Roger Stone and Paul Manafort. This is not coincidence.…

There is no evidence Trump has Russian tiesI would like to comment on a letter printed in The News on May 15. In this letter the writer mentioned that she was concerned by President Trump’s “extensive ties to Russia.” As of this date there has been no evidence presented that the president has any “extensive ties to Russia” after nearly a year of a still ongoing F…

Stop piling on Trump and let him do his jobAs a proud American, I think it’s deplorable the way the media and the national Democrats are treating our American president. These are men and women who are well-educated and graduated from some of our finest colleges and universities and yet they ruthlessly act much worse than those without any education. They wouldn’t thin…

Affordable Care Act was a disaster from the startWhere was the outrage when we were initially lied to about the so-called Affordable Care Act? We didn’t see rooms full of people screaming at politicians when we were told we could keep our doctor and coverage. When we were told premiums would be affordable. In many states, premiums have doubled. Think about that for a mom…

People should remove and replace worn flagsSpring is in the air and so are many U.S. flags. But many of these are ripped and tattered. With Memorial Day approaching, now is a perfect time to examine your flag flying in front of your home or business.Many that I have noticed recently are an absolute disgrace to the men and women who fought for our freedoms.Please remove and…

Amherst Zoning Board flouts law, erodes trustThe Amherst Zoning Board of Appeals recently overturned the Town Board’s rezone denial and the people’s supermajority petition at 190 Maple Road. Members of the Zoning Board demonstrated either an unfortunate lack of knowledge, or a willful disregard of New York State law to accomplish that end. Some Zoning Board members hav…
