Bee Heard

.We’ve so enjoyed the concerts again this year at Basset Park. It’s a pleasure to be there with so many friends and acquaintances of the Town of Amherst. I want to thank the planners who make this possible, the people who do the sound systems, the arrangers, and of course the artists gathered there. I am often concerned about one bush in the pond that blocks the view of the stage from certain areas. Could it be removed? It has been there for years.

.Is there any reason why they still haven’t paved Hopkins and Evans near the Georgetown Plaza? It’s a disaster. It’s one of the busiest intersections, and it’s embarrassing that it has not been paved.

.The only pedestrians I see dodging traffic on Main Street in the village are ones who insist on jaywalking instead of using a signal, which is usually nearby.

.It continues to amaze me the number of people who do not lock their cars. Every week I read the police blotter, and there are at least two or three people who have had items stolen from their cars. When will people learn?

.Even though the Hawk signal on Main Street may seem like a quaint idea, the real solution is to reduce traffic on Main Street by moving the Williamsville toll barrier past Transit and putting an exit at Youngs Road.
