Amherst Town Board Finds Fault With Draft Plan For Westwood Site


Time to circle the wagons once again.  Developers are raising their ugly heads and trying to breathe fire on the town.

Scrutiny over plans to build a sprawling mixed-use neighborhood at the Westwood Country Club in Amherst began Monday, kicking off what’s expected to be a very long and contentious process.

The Amherst Town Board began the vetting at its meeting on Monday by formally tagging the project with a positive declaration under the state environmental review process. In other words, the plans for housing, storefronts, offices, a hotel and parkland on 170 acres in the heart of Amherst could have significantly adverse effects and the town wants an extensive review of the project’s impact on the environment before it decides whether to vote it up or down.

In fact, the developer, Mensch Capital Partners LLC, already has submitted to the town a draft environmental impact statement as part of its application to have the property rezoned so construction can move forward.

But the Town Board countered on Monday and said the developer’s draft is incomplete.

“We find it to be inadequate,” Supervisor Barry A. Weinstein said.

It’s Primary Day


Today is Primary Day.  Get out and vote.

The weather is great, no excuse for not going.  To say voter turnout is light is a joke, and yes it’s true.  If you don’t vote nothing will happen, literally, nothing.  No lightning will strike, a tornado won’t destroy our town. Nothing, nada, zip.

What will happen is things will stay the same.  So, if you don’t like the way things are going, let your voice be heard.

Unidentified Respiratory Virus Likely to Hit Kids Across Country

Doctors say a respiratory illness that has already sickened more than a thousand children in 10 states is likely to become a nationwide problem.

The disease hasn’t been officially identified but officials suspect a rare respiratory virus called human enterovirus 68. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus is related to the rhinovirus, which causes the common cold.

According to Mark Pallansch, director of the Division of Viral Diseases at the CDC, similar cases to the ones in Colorado have been cropping up across the U.S. At least 10 states — Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Iowa, Colorado, Ohio, Oklahoma, North Carolina, and Georgia — have reported suspected outbreaks of human enterovirus 68 and requested CDC support.

Steve Meyer for Assembly

Steve Meyer3a

Tomorrow is the primary election day! We need YOU at the polling centers to volunteer!

We have been fighting hard for many months now to prove to Albany that we are ready for a Fresh Start. Together, we have been making a difference, and we have made great strides.

We have fought hard, but we are not done. We still need to talk to more voters, hand out more palm cards, make more calls, and earn more votes.

Can you volunteer tomorrow, Tuesday September 9th (election day)?
We will need volunteers at polling centers to hand out palm cards and at headquarters to call voters.

If you can help out tomorrow and put in one last pitch of effort for this hard-fought campaign, please email Joy Resor at or simply respond to this email. Let us know what times you will be available.

I hope to hear from you soon! Let’s keep fighting hard!

Yours in friendship,
Steve Meyer

Ken Smith – a Unique Individual But He Wouldn’t Stoop To Jerry Schad’s Level


This upcoming Tuesday, September 9th, is Primary Day.  Most of the material I’ve received in the mail has been pro-Steve Meyer for the State Assembly.

Today, Thursday September 4th, I received a flyer which was an attack piece against Steve Meyer.   Many times the candidates have little if any power over what is sent out to the public on their behalf.

I think the people who are guiding Steve, by this I mean Chairman Jerry Schad and his henchmen, have previous experience using this type of ad.  It paints a negative picture of their candidate and recipients are guided into thinking it was sent out by the opponent.

In this case this piece smells of their work not Ken Smith.
