Rep. John Lewis Isn’t All Talk Mr. Trump

The President-Elect criticized Rep. John Lewis for the representative’s critique of him. That is fair but then the President-Elect said Representative Lewis is “All talk.” Here is an example of Rep. John Lewis “all talk” in action in Selma, Alabama in 1965. Perhaps the President-Elect should read up on history because that is representative Lewis being beaten over the head by Alabama State Police after he and other civil rights activists crossed the Edmund Pettis Bridge.

Barrels Of Nuclear Waste May Be Posioning The Westwood Property

Westwood 1

The EPA told the public that the clean up of the contaminated Westwood Country Club would take up to 2 years.  The EPA wants ground testing from at least 2000 different areas of the Westwood property.  The clean up of this property has to be held to the highest level because of the human factor, the people who will be using this area.

It has become evident that this land has lead, arcnic, and two radioactive substances which came from barrels of atomic waste which have eroded.  Their contents have spread through the ground like little streams finding a way to get through the ground to contaminate larger areas.

The EPA has promised to have their own experts check out the areas where the atomic waste is supposedly leaking into the Westwood area.  If the area is sour land because of radioactive waste, it will slow down the cleanup.

Jewish Repertory Theatre Presents  After the Revolution, by Amy Herzog,

FEBRUARY 9 – MARCH 5, 2017

The Jewish Repertory Theatre continues its 2016/17 season with AFTER THE REVOLUTION, the second of three productions in a season of Amy Herzog plays.

AFTER THE REVOLUTION, winner of the “New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award” previews on Wednesday, February 8 and plays February 9 – March 5, 2017 at the Maxine and Robert Seller Theatre, JCC Benderson Family Building, 2640 North Forest Road, Amherst, NY.

AFTER THE REVOLUTION tells the story of the brilliant, promising lawyer Emma Joseph who proudly carries the torch of her family’s Marxist tradition, devoting her life to the memory of her blacklisted grandfather. But when history reveals a shocking truth about the man himself, the entire family is forced to confront questions of honesty and allegiance they thought had been resolved. AFTER THE REVOLUTION is a bold and moving portrait of an American family, thrown into an intergenerational tailspin, forced to reconcile a thorny and delicate legacy.

AFTER THE REVOLUTION is directed by JRT Artistic Director Saul Elkin and stars Lisa Ludwig, Tom Makar, David Marciniak, Adam Rath, Tina Rausa, Anne Roaldi, Bonnie Jean Taylor and Steve Vaughan. Brian Cavanagh is Lighting Designer, Kari Drozd is Costume Designer, Tom Makar is Sound Designer and David Dwyer is Set Designer and Property Master. Amelia Scinta and Christina Serio are Stage Managers, Jessica Lake Mason is Assistant Stage Manager and Teresa Allesandra is House Manager. Of note, this production features a revolving stage, a first for JRT!

The Jewish Repertory Theatre of Western New York is a program of the JCC of Greater Buffalo.  This season’s original artwork is created by artist Eta Rottenberg.

Open Letter to Council-members Popowich and Spoth

Councilmembers Popowich and Spoth,

If I had to summarize your work on the town board to date in one word it would be;


Ms. Popowich when you were running for town board you came through our neighborhood and discussed how you would fight for residents against the over-development of our town. You indicated how you would work to change the status quo and appoint people to committees that held the similar beliefs.

Ms. Spoth when you were running for town board you echoed the same philosophy of changing the status quo.

So many Republicans, Conservatives, Democrats and Independents chose both of you because we felt that control of the town board needed a new majority.

Your votes at the reorganization meeting this week displayed your true loyalties and they are not with Amherst residents desiring a change at the Planning Board. The extension of the terms of Mr. Gilmour and Ms. Johnson is a slap in the face to all of us who supported you both.

Sadly we fell for the typical political promises spewed from the mouths of candidates offering “change.” Is it any wonder why many Americans don’t bother to vote anymore? We no longer have statesmen in office, people who stand for something, instead we get those who go along to get along.

I advise you not to visit my home during the next election; you will not be welcome.

A Russian Word Americans Need To Know: ‘Kompromat’

by Greg Myre

Russian President Vladimir Putin is shown at the Kremlin in Moscow during the recording of his recent New Year’s message. Putin’s spokesman said Wednesday that the Russian government does not gather compromising material, or kompromat, on political rivals, despite a well-documented history of such behavior.

Mikhail Klimentyev/APOut of nowhere, a shocking video appeared on a Russian TV news program late one evening in March 1999. A surveillance tape showed a naked, middle-aged man who resembled Russia’s top prosecutor, Yuri Skuratov, cavorting with two unclothed young women. Neither was his wife.

The ensuing scandal included a press conference by the head of Russia’s FSB security service at the time, Vladimir Putin, who made clear it was Skuratov in the video.

Skuratov soon lost his job, not to mention his dignity.

President Boris Yeltsin was apparently impressed with Putin’s handling of this episode. Yeltsin wanted to get rid of Skuratov, who was believed to be looking into Kremlin corruption. Several months after the video surfaced, Yeltsin named Putin to be prime minister, and a few months after that, Putin took over as president.
