Bee Heard

.The 12 days of Christmas are the days between Dec. 25 and Jan. 6, the Epiphany, not before Christmas, when the stores and radio stations are pushing buy, buy, buy. It’s nice to celebrate traditions after all the commercialism.

.This is a compliment for the election workers at District 6 and 7 at St. Stephen’s Church. I’m the one who complained after Primary Day, and I must say the parking situation was much improved, and all-day workers were parked farther away from the door. Thanks so much.

.Thank you to the Highway Department for picking up leaves. The person who complained last week in Bee Heard said it was Saturday, the 4th of November. Well, on the 5th we had torrential rainfall which would have made the situation so much worse for residents had the leaves not been picked up. Leaf pickup is anything but a waste of taxpayer money.

.I’m a longtime resident of the Village of Williamsville, and I agree that there is too much waste in the DPW. I think they should eliminate it.

.The person who commented about the the parking ban in Dana Heights must be joking. I’m sure the police have more to do than ticket cars when there is no snow. It would be a waste of police officers’ time.

.Regarding the comment about the parking ban in Dana Heights, maybe the Amherst Police are using common sense. If there is no snow in the forecast, there is no reason why you should have to pull your car off the street. Thankfully, Cheektowaga and Tonawanda have used a little common sense and backed the date up to Nov. 15. When there is no snow forecast, it’s annoying to pull your car in the driveway every night.
