I have lived in Amherst since 1968. I am a senior and an an avid bicycle rider. I am writing to strongly support the town’s lawsuit against Grover’s Bar and Grill as detailed in a recent Buffalo News article.This usurping of town property is totally unacceptable, especially in light of recent goals to make Amherst more walker and bike friendly. This piece of property is pa…

In response to the upset Tops workers over reduced pensions. Welcome to America, I struggle to write anymore, because of its uselessness. Writing, voting, protesting, what do they achieve now?Money buys everything. Tops’ attorneys, and upper management, I hope they sleep well at night, leaving people with nothing but crumbs. For the most part there are two classes today, …

What an amazing month it has been for women in this great country of ours!Outstanding women of integrity have not only run for so many elected offices across the country, but have won so many of their races.Women have won local town board elections. Women have won state office seats. And women have won U.S. Senate and congressional seats. And everything in between.There we…

In the wake of the diocesan documents leak about sexual abuse, the word “love,” in the context of “loving thing to do,” has been inserted into almost every discourse.Critics of the bishop claim to have been called by God and heavyweights ranging from Pope Benedict XVI to Jesus himself have been quoted to help justify throwing Bishop Richard Malone under the bus.Clearly cla…

The blue wave may not have been as big as hoped but the true success of the wave will be it’s sustainability and adaptability.A movement has been started and just like the immigration issue, new blood has been inserted into an old system giving it a fresh outlook and an emboldened energy.It is time to establish the priorities which this great nation stands for and should o…

Bishop Richard J. Malone’s Nov. 5 press conference was unsatisfactory partly because he left most of the explanations and difficult questions to his lawyers. They repeatedly stated that most of the priest sex abuses occurred in the 1960s and 1970s before Malone’s arrival. While those abuses were a horrific betrayal, what happened since his arrival has angered many people.M…

After two months of campaigning underground for the 27th District, Chris Collins showed his face in public.The only time Collins was spotted prior to this interview on Channel 7 was by news cameras emerging from the federal courthouse in Manhattan surrounded by lawyers after being charged in a felony hearing for insider trading.Of course, his self-imposed isolation is not …

Hmm … OK! Democrats win back the House of Representatives. What do Conservative Republicans do? They accept the results! It’s a new day. They go on with their lives. No rioting, no looting, no fires, no breaking windows, no police cars overturned, no threatening to blow up the White House and no pink women’s body part hats.So you would think the liberal, progressive left w…

Let’s see. There are many words to describe President Donald Trump – bully, dishonest, egomaniac, liar, narcissistic, unfaithful, nativistic, racist, etc. But one trait stands out most – un-Christian!Based on Trump’s speeches and policies, you can’t be both a Trump supporter and a practicing Christian. If you disagree, check out the “Sermon on the Mount” – Matthew Chapter …

Bishop Richard J. Malone states it’s difficult to have one’s integrity questioned. He is right.He should ask every one of the children who went to their parents about what was happening to them behind the altar. He should go to each mother who watched her broken child become depressed, anxious, perhaps in later years alcoholic or suicidal. Sexual abuse does that to kids.Th…

The re-election of seedy Chris Collins, indicted for insider trading and lying to the FBI, constitutes a morally reprehensible embarrassment to decent, law-abiding residents of the 27th congressional district. Defiant and ignorant brainwashed “Trumpies” once again clearly demonstrated their lack of commonsense and basic ethical principles solely to prevent an additional Ho…

The approaching migrant caravans serve as a wake-up call to modern progressives on two fronts.Initially, they represent a clear sign of the folly of the modern socialist movement. As migrants flee its ravages, they represent the clearest example of voting with your feet we will ever see.Those liberals in this country who have climbed aboard the redistributionist express sh…

A recent writer to this column accused Michelle Obama with inciting incivility by quoting her statement: “When they go low, we go high.” His interpretation is totally inaccurate, and he uses her statement to criticize her. It is this type of ideology which leads to the division and hatred we now witness in our country.The chief culprit here is Donald Trump who when campaig…

As an avid consumer of political news from multiple sources, I completely agree with Margaret Sullivan’s recent column. She said that too many journalists allow Donald Trump to lead them around by the nose.Cable news shows endlessly discuss Trump’s latest tweet, soundbite, or distraction and therefore perpetuate any untruths therein without any firm and consistent rebutta…
