Steiner, I almost always agree with everything you have to say - I think you could polish your delivery. You really do make a lot of sense.

Chautauqua County could be sitting on a gold mine, so to speak, if the environmental hysterics would lay off and allow us to go after the natural gas. However, in their own short-sighted method of "saving the planet" they are indirectly destroying our area as we lose jobs and residents when there could be a boon of both.

Regarding the "Hysterical Society", they've been a hinderance to true economic progress for years. It is absolutely CRIMINAL the power they are given. I believe towns have shut them down because if they aren't chartered into the town constitution, they can be removed by a vote as easily as they were created. Might be time to get rid of them around here.

hey libs, so where are all the people this waterfront was supposed to bring in. It fails on that, but that does not stop an activist.

I mostly agree with you Local--except that to me, Bass Pro is better suited for a suburban locale than right smack dab downtown.

Truth, bingo. Look at all the development happening downtown Buffalo at the moment. All private enterprise funded. Decades of government waste-of-money after waste-of-money (I'm looking at YOU, idiotic Historical Society keeping grain elevators in place on prime real estate), and zero benefit. And this private evelopment is happening despite the fact that Buffalo leaders chased Bass Pro away like it was a criminal (that's pretty ironic).

These are great improvements, Valerie. But I would add that even more could be done. Everything that attracts people is visible--like the lighthouse--and not invisible, like infrastructure. We need more like the boardwalk, but not taxpayer subsidized.

hey valerie, that the waterfront is our greatest asset is only a mantra for the libs. Water treatment plant the regional supplier , you are kiding right. there has to be overcapacity with the loss of population and industry. You sound like Brian Higgins who has done a good job of messing up rt 5 near the skyway. Train station needed ? for what ?we see growth in the arid southwestwhere water is scare and loss of people and jobs here where water is plentiful. So much for the waterfront I'd say. And dont forget the antifrackers who worry about having no water while they frack out west. you libs, confused as usual.
