Will finish cancer treatments at ECMC

Jim Kelly returned to Buffalo late Saturday after spending several weeks undergoing treatment in a New York City hospital.

The Hall of Fame quarterback will be fielding offers to join an ownership group for the Buffalo Bills while he continues his treatment for sinus cancer at a Buffalo hospital.

And his brother told The Buffalo News that the former Bills star will have something else on his mind – offers from several different groups of potential Bills owners who are interested in buying the National Football League team.

Despite his illness, Kelly remains vitally interested in becoming part of a Bills ownership group and in keeping the team in Buffalo, Dan Kelly told The News.

Rick Perry Hopes Combination Of Wearing Glasses and Not Talking Will Make Him Seem Smarter

POSTED BY

AUSTIN, Tex. (The Borowitz Report)—With an eye toward a Presidential run in 2016, Rick Perry, the Texas governor, is hoping that a two-pronged strategy of wearing glasses and not speaking will make him appear smarter to voters, aides to the Governor confirmed today.“After the 2012 Republican primary, we knew that we needed to solve what we called the Governor’s smartness problem,” said Harland Dorrinson, an aide to Perry. “The fix that we came up with was glasses, but, as it turned out, that was only half the solution.”

After outfitting Perry with designer eyewear, aides sent him on the road to reintroduce himself to voters, but the response, Mr. Dorrinson said, was underwhelming: “The problem was, he was still talking.”

A round of focus groups convinced aides that only through a combination of wearing glasses and not emitting any sounds could Perry overcome voters’ initial impressions of him.

At a recent political stop in San Antonio, the newly minted Governor Perry was on display, wearing his glasses and gesticulating expressively while saying nothing for thirty minutes.

“Our focus groups show people no longer know what Rick Perry is thinking,” said Mr. Dorrinson. “That’s a huge improvement.”

Gas Station Owners Feel The Joy Of High Gasoline Prices

gassing up car

Since Holy Week started last Saturday I have noticed the kinder side of people.  I especially want to thank the gas station owners who last week were charging $3.68 a gal.  Now, with more people driving, the price of gas in our neck of the woods has gone up to $3.83.

It appears simple gouging your neighbors as much as you can, because ~ this is Amherst!

Weppner Selling Yacht

Weppner,_Kathy

On April 10, Alan Bedenko posted the following:

On her campaign website, Weppner says she’s running for Congress because she’s a

…strong voice for those who have a difficult time speaking for themselves due to inequity in power. She intends to carry that voice to Washington to help overcome the unique challenges facing Western New York.

It’s a silly statement, when you read it. “Inequity in power” doesn’t prevent or stunt someone’s ability to “speak for themselves”. Unless Weppner is advocating for that socialist equality nonsense, it’s hard to know what she’s talking about. I can’t decide if she’s trying to be regular people, or if she’s saying, in effect, that she’s better than regular people – you lumpenproles can rely on her to do your anti-Obama, anti-Kenyan advocacy for you.

In the meantime, I wonder if Weppner is funding her campaign through the sale of her yacht?

Amherst Town Board Proposes Fracking Ban

Amherst Town Board Proposes Fracking Ban
Monday, April 28, 2014 at 7 p.m.
Town of Amherst Municipal Building
5583 Main Street
Williamsville, NY 14221

The Town Board of Amherst will propose a resolution that could lead to a local ban on fracking, fracking waste disposal, and road spreading of brine in the town at their next meeting — and we need you there to make sure that it passes! Amherst and area residents are encouraged to attend to show your support for an Amherst-wide ban on dangerous fracking and the toxic waste it creates. The board meeting is on Monday, April 28th at 7 p.m.and we need to PACK THE ROOM because your presence encourages the board to vote the right way on the resolution.

You may also prepare 3-minutes of testimony to read in favor of a ban on fracking/fracking waste in Amherst, just be sure to emphasize how these things could impact Amherst residents. Non-Amherst residents are also allowed to testify. Speaking is optional and those wishing to speak should arrive 15 minutes early to sign up.

The town board of Amherst, NY must pass a local ban to safeguard our natural resources and health from the contamination that fracking brings to communities. A ban on fracking & fracking waste disposal (including road spreading) in Amherst would protect residents from exposure to harmful chemicals, airborne carcinogens, and contaminated water. For more information or to get involved, contact Rita at ryelda@fwwatch.org
