Bee Heard

I want to congratulate the Clarence students who were protesting against gun violence. I think it’s wonderful they are standing up for what they believe in, but one bit of advice I’d like to pass along is not only is it important to protest and make signs, but they also need to look within their own schools and see who is the child sitting alone at the lunch table and maybe sit by them. Who is the kid being picked on or teased for what they are wearing or how they act? Instead of only making signs, let’s go back in the schools and make friends with those who feel isolated. Let’s all be nice to everyone.

I’d like to address the lawlessness in Clarence. People are not stopping at stop signs and are not going the speed limit in Clarence Center (which is 30 mph). Please stop passing me on Roll and Wehrle because I’m not going 10 miles over the speed limit. When your taxes double because we have to pay for our own police force, I will be sure to send you my bill because I have your license plates numbers.

The reader who expressed dismay at the Clarence School District tweets about school closings and text messages is a bit confused. Only the text messages from WIVB contain Jim Steak-Out ads, not the school district’s.

I think it’s a great idea to turn the clocks ahead and leave them that way forever. No more turning the clocks back or ahead. If New York State doesn’t do it, why can’t Mark Poloncarz do it in Erie County?
