    In the late 1930s, or thereabouts, an American Gas Association flak thought up the clever slogan “now you’re cooking with gas,” and fed it to Bob Hope and Jack Benny for their routines. Even Daffy Duck used it.

      Four years of playoff failures – the Bills, an upper tier team, but never reaching even the AFC championship. As said in these pages previously, Sean McDermott is a good players’ coach, but not strategically. He needs a consultant. We are wasting these years of Josh Allen, who is more savvy …

        Deaths due to the January storm power outage are a tragedy. Licensed drivers, pharmacists, doctors, bartenders, police and others are held accountable and responsible for their actions. Politicians who lack knowledge and propose restrictions, bans or termination of gas furnaces and stoves wi…

          While reading the want ads, I was struck by the qualifications needed for jobs. Many mandated degrees or experience in a related field in order to apply, while other ads offered the requisite training needed to do so. However, when it comes to the most important genre of all, running for off…

            The Buffalo Bills once again fall short of their goal of reaching and winning a possible Super Bowl. It is like they have a playoff curse. We all know too well their past failures as we do not want to bring them up at this time. The fans again will have to sing that familiar song – again, wa…

              I was saddened when I read the letter written for Everybody’s Column on Jan. 15 stating that while prayer is nice, and it makes everyone feel good, it was not the prayers that saved Hamlin’s life. I concur that it was the quick and skilled action of the medical people and trainers but also p…

              I was shocked to read that Buffalo and some other Erie County residents have been without fluoridation since 2015. That is a huge disservice to our children. We feel it is so important that we used to cart fluoride drops to our young grandchildren in Venezuela. Children without fluoridated w…

              In ancient Athens, the Sophists were philosophers who challenged, criticized and destroyed the foundations of traditions, as well as the moral and social order, leaving nothing in its place. The Sophists held no values other than winning and succeeding. They believed and taught that “might m…

              I have to assume Mayor Byron Brown rarely drives his city streets. He recently promoted installing electric vehicle charging stations in the city though any sense of propriety is severely misplaced. Funds need to be spent on the deplorable condition of our main roads. Besides the moonscape s…

              We must slam the brakes on burning fossil fuels, or we are well and truly in for it. The latest news, “U.S. carbon emissions jumped up in 2022,” Jan. 11, is not encouraging. Emissions are not only raising air temperatures. They’ve created a deep-seated heat wave in the ocean, the sink for 90…

              The Democratic Party is famous for double-standards these past years. I remember Biden during the debates for the presidency stating that Donald Trump was responsible for 220,000 deaths from Covid-19 and that he should have resigned from office.

              I have made many attempts to have a conversation with State Sen. Sean Ryan regarding his proposed legislation (S00138) to remove National Rifle Association certified instructors as qualified trainers under the Concealed Carry Improvement Act. The bill calls for the training and approval of i…

              During the recent storm I was without electric power for 2 1/2 days. I am 90 years old and I heated my house using the four burners on my gas stove. I did fine without the electric power and kept the stove on 24 hours a day. I have many pet birds and they did fine with no ill effects. Electr…

              The Buffalo fire department must upgrade after a blizzard that paralyzed the City of Buffalo and the mayor. Now is the time to upgrade before the next blizzard. Our fire pumpers and trucks are old, some over 25 years old, and with five feet of snow on the ground in South Buffalo, how many li…

              On the Jan. 8 Opinion page, Froma Harrop dealt with the political finger pointing regarding U.S. energy. What she didn’t do was deal with the insanity behind much of the political discourse. There is absolute babbling regarding the XL pipeline. We currently produce about 18.8 million barrels…

              As this year’s final curtain draws closer, our Buffalo Bills need to find a way to add consistency and apply solid fundamentals to stay on track for an Oscar-winning finale. The probability of bouncing back against a higher seed in the quest for the coveted trophy is not impossible but, high…

              A great picture in the Jan. 6 Buffalo News of the VA cemetery, shows how easy it would be to move the entrance/exit halfway down the site on 77. This would enable persons entering or leaving the site to clearly see traffic in either direction, significantly reducing the risk of further accid…
