Developer Wants to Build Subdivision on Former Airfield in Amherst

airfield

A former airfield in the northwest corner of Amherst is being targeted for a new subdivision.

M.J. Peterson-Airport LLC wants to develop 139 homes on 55 acres of vacant land at 271 Tonawanda Creek Road, according to plans filed with the Town of Amherst.

The Amherst Town Board still needs to rezone 34 acres on the site for the project to move forward. The other 21 acres include state regulated wetlands and would remain a conservation area.

The town’s Planning Board recently recommended approval.

What a surprise!  They recommended approval of the request.

The project has raised some questions among nearby neighbors about increased traffic, impact on wetlands and its density for the neighborhood, Amherst officials said.

A meeting was held recently with the neighbors, whose biggest concern was over developing the site for multifamily housing, said Sean W. Hopkins, attorney for the developer. M.J. Peterson, however, amended its request to the town so that the property could be rezoned from suburban agriculture to traditional single-family residential.

Amherst Drops ‘Sit and Stare’ Policy For Students Who Opt Out of Testing

sit and stare

Amherst on Monday became the latest school district to drop what critics of testing call a “sit and stare” policy for elementary and middle school students boycotting state assessments.

Those students at Amherst Central school will not be forced to sit quietly at their desks while the tests are administered beginning next month.

upporters of the opt-out movement said they’re satisfied with the district’s change in policy and have cancelled a protest planned for Wednesday in front of Amherst Central High School. Critics of the “sit and stare” practice say it punishes children whose parents rightfully refuse to allow participation in state standardized tests.

“Jesus the Homeless” Statue Installed in Buffalo

From first glance, it looks like a statue of a homeless person. Look closer, and holes in the feet of the statue reveal it is something more. It is “Jesus the Homeless,” the work of Canadian sculptor Tim Schmalz, set to be unveiled in Buffalo on Tuesday.

The piece is a seven-foot bronze bench with a figure under a blanket lying on it. Two holes in the feet represent wounds from being nailed to the cross. It will be placed in Cathedral Park downtown, next to St. Paul’s Cathedral.

“This sleeping homeless person will be there to remind the people of Buffalo what we should be reminded of more and more. And that is when we see the broken, when we see the marginalized, we are seeing something sacred and spiritual,” Schmalz said via Skype.

Andy’s Take on Indiana’s Newest Law

by Andy Borowitz

Mike Pence: “All I’m trying to do is protect people’s God-given right to hate who they want.”

'Mike Pence: "All I'm trying to do is protect people's God-given right to hate who they want."'

When Mike Pence rattles off a list of places that have laws like Indiana he always leaves out Uganda.

“How screwed am I right now?”
— Thought bubble over Mike Pence’s head

'"How screwed am I right now?"<br /><br /><br />
-- Thought bubble over Mike Pence's head'

Pence clarifies new law: “No business in Indiana will discriminate against you if you can provide proof of heterosexuality.”

I think Indiana voters should discriminate against politicians on the basis of IQ.
The fact that Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz are supporting Indiana’s anti-gay law shows that the Republicans are serious about losing the 2016 election

Indiana Governor Stunned By How Many People Seem to Have Gay Friends

INDIANAPOLIS (The Borowitz Report)—Indiana Governor Mike Pence is “stunned and amazed” that so many people appear to have gay friends, Pence has confirmed.

Speaking to reporters in his office in Indianapolis, Pence said that he made the astonishing discovery about gay friends late last week.

“A lot of everyday people have gay friends, and they’re not afraid to call and/or e-mail you to tell you that,” Pence said. “To be honest, I’m still trying to process it all.”

Pence said that from what he has been able to gather thus far, the phenomenon of “ordinary folks” having gay friends “has been going on for years.”

“You could be walking down the street, and without you knowing it, this person is friends with gays and that person is, too,” he said. “It really seems to be pretty widespread.”

“It’s the darnedest thing,” he added.

While Pence acknowledged that he has “no gay friends personally,” the growing popularity of being friends with gays has made him question whether he has been “missing the boat on this.”

“When I see so many people having gay friends, it makes me wonder if I should go out and get one,” he said. “But I guess that would be kind of hard for me to do now.”

Cardinal Raymond Burke: Gays, Remarried Catholics Are Just As Sinful As Murderers

Cardinal Raymond Burke
written by James Tricoli, Editor of the Amhersttimes.com

I have been a practicing Roman Catholic all of my life. When I was a young boy priests put the fear of GOD in me, not the great love GOD had for us.

When my generation entered our twenties we were filled with confusing truths concerning our faith.  Many of us felt deep guilt concerning sex and love.  It has proven out our generation had the highest divorce rate of any other generation of Roman Catholics.  We were messed up by what we were taught concerning the real love of GOD.

Cardinal Raymond Burke wants to put in the final spike with his generation of priests who started by putting the fear of GOD into GOD’S children.  Now he tells us that remarried Catholics and gays cannot use confession. That puts them into hell here on earth and leads you to going to hell upon your death.

Cardinal Burke, when you meet our Lord you will have to explain why you hated his children who needed love not strict, confusing thoughts.  Cardinal Burke you and your legion of mixed up priests did a harmful thing to my generation.

Cardinal, you should feel guilt for the pain you caused in the minds of young boys and girls.  We had deep guilt about our changing bodies.  The boys tried all kinds of ways not to abuse their bodies.  Your “rules” stayed in our minds and followed us into marriage.  Many experienced disappointment in marriage because of the guilt we learned as children.

Many marriages dissolved because of the restrictions we developed from your teachings as a young person. Cardinal, you should be on your knees praying to the Lord because you were fully aware of what you were doing to his children.  I believe you are a sick person who is filled with hate.  Thankfully GOD’S love is coming out in the words of Pope Francis.

Why do so many happy remarried people, so many are good Catholics, have to pay for the sins of the church?

Cardinal you must stay on your knees and ask for forgiveness from every child you hurt.
