The Fischer Store Road bridge over the Blanco River near Wimberley, Texas is destroyed after a flood on Sunday, May 24, 2015.

Our prayers go out to all those living in the heavily flooded areas of our nation.  The reporters said the flooding was of “Biblical proportions” this morning.

Supervior Weinstein And Councilmembers Come To The Corner Of Niagara Falls Blvd. And Kenmore To View Blight

Supervisor Weinstein and Councilmembers:
      If you have not been in the neighborhood lately, I would encourage you , in your travels, to view the premises at the northeast corner of Niagara Falls Blvd (159) and Kenmore Avenue. This intersection is important because it is heavily travelled , abuts two (2) other municipal jurisdictions, the City of Buffalo and the Town of Tonawanda, and is the southwest gateway to our great town. It is also the southwest boundary of Eggertsville.
     The premises were last the site of a convenience store of some sort, long since demolished. Since then it has just sat there , an ugly, unaesthetic failure of  the market to build a new structure, or the town to force remediation or rehabilitation, or both.  In short, its a horrible eyesore, made worse by the recalcitrant owner’s abject refusal to adequately police and maintain the premises in a clean and orderly manner. Circumscribed by what appear to be huge truncated  columns of stone, presumeably to prevent vehicular access, the corner just screams decay and desolation. As a town , we may post welcome signage to our great town on the entrances, but the condition of this “gateway” belies the effort.
     Since we do not have district councilman, and none of you lives in Eggertsville, you may not be aware of the condition of these premises like those of us who have to pass them daily. On the invitation of the building department ,
I have written the owners directly, the United Refining Company, and even offered to help it market it, if necessary, as concerned neighbors. However I have not even received the courtesy of a response of any kind.
      Therefore I would request you as the Town board authorize and direct the Town Attorney to commence a civil public nuisance action against the corporate owner, in an attempt to secure compliance with some sort of neighborhood standard of aesthetics, as well as our code, to insure the protection of the public  health, safety and welfare, and the tax base. This situation requires immediate attention. Urban decay does not resolve itself; it does not get better, and it only spreads. Thank you.
Very truly yours,
Dan Ward.

Louisiana Breaks Off Trade Relations with Ireland

Andy Borowitz
LOUISIANA – One day after Irish voters legalized gay marriage, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has used his emergency powers to ban all Irish products from the state.
The sweeping trade sanctions will prevent popular Irish products, such as Guinness beverages, from being sold in Louisiana.
Jindal explained that breaking off trade with Ireland was necessary to protect the sanctity of marriage in Louisiana.
“Every time someone takes a sip of Guinness, a part of straight marriage dies,” he said.

John Nash, ‘A Beautiful Mind’ Subject and Nobel Winner, Dies at 86

 John F. Nash Jr. receiving an honorary doctorate in Hong Kong in 2011.
John F. Nash Jr., a mathematician who shared a Nobel Prize in 1994 for work that greatly extended the reach and power of modern economic theory and whose decades-long descent into severe mental illness and eventual recovery were the subject of a book and a 2001 film, both titled “A Beautiful Mind,” was killed, along with his wife, in a car crash on Saturday in New Jersey. He was 86.

Dr. Nash was probably best known for his life story, a tale of dazzling achievement, devastating loss and almost miraculous redemption. The narrative of Dr. Nash’s brilliant rise, the lost years when his world dissolved in schizophrenia, his return to rationality and the awarding of the Nobel, retold in a biography by Sylvia Nasar and in the Oscar-winning film, starring Mr. Crowe and Jennifer Connelly as John and Alicia Nash, captured the public mind and became a symbol of the destructive force of mental illness and the stigma that often hounds those who suffer from it.

The Unethical Connection Between The Amherst Planning Department And The Planning Board

editorial 3

Editorial:

I received permission from Supervisor Weinstein and the  Town Board to sit in on meetings of the Planning Board and oversee how the members reach their decisions on projects.  Many citizens want to how the Planning Department and the Planning Board work together.

The Planning Board wouldn’t share any material with me but I dug around and found that a week before the Planning Board hold their meetings the seven members receive information on the projects from the Planning Department.  All the information received about the projects comes entirely from our Planning Department led by Mr. Eric Gillert.

Their entire procedure is highly unethical and possibly illegal.

I will continue overseeing the Planning Board. I have seen the corrupt nature of our major Town Boardse I will no longer expose their guilt but I WILL RUN FOR THE TOWN BOARD SEAT. I will use every ounce of strength and knowledge to bring down the corrupt elements in this town.
