Good Friday Ruminations

Since it's Good Friday, we're going to have an abridged version of Friday Ruminations.

I'm sure being in the majority of the State Senate has its perks, but one really has to wonder if Senator Bill Stachowski, after 27 years of being invisible in the minority, would prefer the old way. He is, rightfully so, getting hammered for his actions in the Senate. He never had to deal with Buffalo News editorials like this one before.

Something tell me that the state beaches in New York City are not being closed for the season. You just plain suck, Thompson and Stachowski.

Can someone please tell me why there is a town of Lewiston and a village of Lewiston? Doesn't Barker have the same setup? Get on that one, Gaughn, you snake oil salesman.

Kudos to the Niagara County Leg for moving forward with plans to sue for a bigger portion of the casino revenue. And when they win, not one dime better go to Niagara Falls. Payback is a bitch, Francine.

North Tonawanda will have a new Mayor come January 1. Let me be the first to say congratulations on your victory, Mayor Ortt.

Niagara County Community College is moving forward with plans for a culinary school. The college is negotiating a lease with NS Partners, a firm that has sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, but college officials said they don’t believe that the proceeding puts their project at risk. Really?

In all fairness, Bill Stachowski has brought one thing to Buffalo: More patronage. An office that had two Republicans will now have 10 Democrats. Shameful.
