.I’m glad the town comptroller has finally come forward and admitted that the budget needs to be balanced. There were underspent accounts and unanticipated revenues to cover what Satish Mohan wrongly calls a deficit.

.It’s too bad, in the bus garage in the Williamsville School District, that you can’t even put up a decoration or have a Christmas lunch with your fellow workers.

.Regarding a comment about school violence, the problem is also at Mill Middle. It’s not just the parents. It’s also the administration, so parents of Mill Middle students watch out and make the administrators accountable for what happens in their school!

.I see that three town board members voted against raising the temperature at the Senior Center. What is the matter with these people? Don’t they have a heart? Don’t they know anything about older people? I am just appalled at the three of them.

.Hooray, Hooray, we’re finally getting Wal-Mart built at Sheridan and Bailey. I heard two years ago that it was going in, and still nothing. Everything was about the Wal-Mart on Millersport, and nothing was being done about this one, but I guess something was being done. It’s an eyesore, and we need a Super Wal-Mart here. Come on, start digging and get it re a d y !

.My name is Thad, and anyone who is interested in repaving of Maple Road from Hopkins west toward Niagara Falls Boulevard, please meet me at the next town hall meeting in January. I will be wearing a full-length coat, gold in color. Thank you!

.I have been observing for the past two weeks the workers from a tree company from Indiana. On Woodbury and Hedstrom roads are 10 to 12 workers with each unit of three trucks, plus two white pickups wherein the drivers stay nice and warm while they keep the vehicles running. Eight men walked in the backyard; one climbed the tree and seven watched. It reminds me of an old joke I once heard. Exactly who keeps track of what they are doing? At the rate they move, it could take a long time before they finish. In the meantime, we the taxpayers foot the bills.
