.Maybe someone can explain it to me. During the middle of a big snowstorm, during the middle of the day, on a Monday, it's snowing like crazy and the Town of Amherst Highway Department is salting, instead of plowing. Maybe I just don't get it. Can someone explain it to me though?

.I offer a rebuttal to the recent contributors to Bee Heard who delight in slandering Dr. Mohan. suspect that you are, for the most part, town employees whose bread has been buttered too heavily for too long. I further agree that Mr. O'Laughlin brought virtually nothing to our town during his tenure. If you were a listener to his radio program, you would have known better. If the two holdover Democratic members of our town board would follow newcomer Mr. Manna's stated goals and cease to be obstructionists, Amherst will again be the most respected community in Western New York with Satish Mohan almost universally respected.

.I don't know whether the Maple Road development by Benderson is a good idea or not, but even if I did think it was a good idea, I would suggest first they be required to fill all the vacancies of buildings they have built in and around Amherst.

.As the year 2007 is coming to an end, I want to thank Trustee Jeff Kingsley for all his efforts on the Williamsville Village Board. He has attempted to open up village government. He's truly been a breath of fresh air, especially with bringing to light the truthful accusations and statements concerning the Williamsville Water Mill. I just hope in 2008 the rest of the village board follows Mr. Kingsley's leadership in allowing village government to become more open and honest. Thank you, Mr. Kingsley, for all your efforts.
